I don't have an addon for the AH but I do have a couple dozen items I look at frequently. One thing that's obvious are these huge swings in price over time. Obviously, it's a game of "supply and demand", but my suspicion, especially after reading this article is that using the addons can lead to larger swings in prices... especially if people don't have a good understanding of the history of an item. For example, Goldclover... usually sells for 30g+ on my server and "mentally" when it hits 35g I start selling the stuff (and it sells). However, over a week span I saw stacks and stacks flooding in from several characters and the price flew down to around 10g. Under normal logic (that of someone going in each day on their own and looking up the stuff), they'd see this as abnormal and say "time to buy... not sell", but for whatever reason the goldclover just kept coming in until it hit 6g. I think the problem comes up when people are simply selling on a percentage of the market and not KNOWING the product.
