Well, I gotta disagree with a lot of this, at least in terms of breaking the wall with glyphs.1) Hoping your competitor will be foolish enough to post tons of glyphs with a 48 hour time will only take you so far. Most servers have at least 1 or 2 people using Quick Auctions to post massive amounts of glyphs with short auction durations and can do so in about 10-20 min.2) Embargos sound great in theory until you realize that not all herbs come from the AH. I know when I was heavy in the glyph market, I found myself a dedicated herb seller and bought all he had in bulk. I got cheaper prices than the AH and massive quantities at a time.In the end, when the glyph market gets flooded, you have two options. You can either settle for lower profits or find a different market until the glyph market becomes more profitable. Personally, I chose the second option. I stopped selling glyphs, let the market bounce back, then made some more big profits when prices rose.

I agree with every point, completely.These tactics may work on a low-pop server, but there are still too many variables that were not addressed in the article that can have a major negative affect to your market.As Dah eluded to, diversify your money making markets.
