ISK sinking is any aspiring market traders goal, to acquire massive sums of net worth in holdings and sales on the market to hold up continuous profits ongoing daily and into the future. The ability to hold much capitol and assets without the need to spend or sell it except when absolutely necessary or to the greatest investment and profit at those times.
This often can mean having to hold assets for very long time with the risk of their value changing both to your benefit and loss with very little control over unpredictable changes in the game that can cost a massively invested trader tens, if not hundreds of billions in value to the assets they have yet to even sell and even further loss in the actual value of the profit gained from selling them in the first place. In some cases even losing out on what you initially spent investing into something long ago to a degree you will never completely be able to cash out on even to recover those costs except without losing much of the capitol you put into it in the first place.
I have no complaints about the market fees they serve their function as intended and anyone with enough experience in the market can easily manage paying them. It isn’t supposed to be something easy that everyone can do from scratch with no experience or wealth to invest.
The risk is always there whether you can manage it or not things will happen completely out of your control and operating expenses are always ongoing, sales activity and profits are never guaranteed as much as the risk and expense of continuous trading.
Say what you will about the market and economy but it is the heart, blood and veins of this game at the end of the day nothing else in this game can be done without it. Yeah, you can be self sufficient but you still need to first buy things before you can acquire materials and build assets yourself and ISK is still required in many ways to anything else you can’t simply do yourself for “free” at the cost of only time and effort put into it, which again, trading does require much of even when your doing absolutely nothing it takes a lot of time just simply thinking about it and often the more time you put into it like that the more you get out of what your actually doing.
Or, maybe I don’t know anything and you are obviously in the know about these things I cannot possibly understand your heightened perspective of.
Please enlighten me. I always value anything that can show me where I am wrong and improve myself by.
