Hello, all. I’m a fairly new player and I’d like to learn more about making money through the market, whether that’s selling stuff I’ve built in industry or taking advantage of trade opportunities. I understand (very) basic aspects of economy and finances and I’ve read enough to know that no one in Eve is going to reveal their trade secrets, and I wouldn’t ask them to. But to be honest, when I look at the market tools in game, and the few times I’ve perused the third party tools, I’m just overwhelmed with information and I’m not sure how to parse it all. For instance, there is the market history in-game and you have the donchian channel, though I’m not sure what that exactly is and the real significance of the other lines and bars. So I’m not looking for anyone to tell me what to buy or sell, but I’m wondering if there is a step by step guide that can introduce me to the tools that are already at my disposal in game. Other guides I’ve looked at start (at least I feel) way above this basic level and I really need to start at the very ABCs of the thing, if that makes sense.
Can anyone give me a rundown on this or point me to a very new player novice-at-numbers tutorial to get me started? I look forward to figuring out what to build/sell on my own, but before I can do that, I need to understand the information that’s being presented to me.
Thanks for any help!
