    Would it not make a lot more business sense if you actually did the buying up of excess inventory quietly so as not to raise the prices on yourself and have others front run you (potentially)?

    I understand announcing it makes you seem cool and enigmatic, but a sucky business decision

    And as for the funds required, guess depends on how wide you cast your net, but it may be a reasonably hefty sum that is required to corner all commodity markets, a lot more than any reasonable person would put into a game

    You know It does make alot of sence to not say anything. But by Stating my intentions. I am playing off of the people that want to make a run at my money. And the whole process of Raising prices on myself is the process that creates a true value everyone else must adhere to. No one is going to Sell for less when they can just sell to me for more.

    now telling everyone when i deside to sell back what i buy.. now thats something i should not let you guys know about.

    or... its on purpose! Op has litttle funds left and wants other to start buying out everything so he then can sell his stock at right price. AHA!

    or... he is clever enough and knew someone will notice it sooner or later so now he is double crosing us... AHA!!!!
    (joking ofc ).

    Seems quite rather convoluted logic to me, this is the kind of post I would make once I have secured the supply at low prices hoping there are suckers that will raise the price in greedy hope of quick gain In any case good luck with the project, does not make much sense to me, but hell if it makes you happy that is all that matters

    Ha! Shows how much you dont know about the market and human nature. OR how much you really know about me, my pedcard, and my intentions.
