I’ve been playing Eve on and off for years (since 2008), but I’ve never really spent any considerable time in market trading. I have dabbled in the past but not seriously.
I decided to set up a trading alt and I set up in Dodixie/Botane.
This has been going quite well. I started with around 900mil-1bil around 3 weeks ago, and I have been steadily increasing that by approx 100mil a week. So my current assets (including buy/sell orders) sit at around 1.3bil.
My initial plan was to write off the money the trader had, and just see how it goes with no pressure, so I could make mistakes etc. I have been reinvesting everything I earn at the moment into buy orders.
Now I’m starting to see tangible returns, how would you recommend I go about paying out to my other characters for PVP etc. without killing my earning potential?
Would you say something like, transfer out 5-10% of the ISK per month?
How do you experienced traders handle this?
Thanks in advance!
