Basil, I really enjoy your articles. Although I don't enjoy the kind of market play your and yours do, it fascinates me to think of just how many different games there are wrapped up inside WoW, beyond the raiding, instancing, and PVP that get aired on the back of the box.

If you think that's a game, you should should try doing it with the stock market. It's the same thing, just virtual.

In my experience, the stock market is easier to win at than the Auction House. There are so many more imbalances in stock markets, it's very easy to (usually) cherry pick things that are way too high, or way too low. On my realm, there tends to be a general balance to the price of mats v. crafted materials, to where imbalances are very few (and I jump on them when they are there) and far between.

The difference is that the stock market is stacked against retail investors. In the AH, no one person has an advantage that can't be gotten by another player. On the stock market, no matter what I do, I'll have to pay transaction fees, and I will never be able to own and operate a server farm in the same building as the exchange to profit from high speed algorithmic trading.
