Interesting article. I Casually play the AH just to keep gold to supply my alts and Main, so number 4 is one I use often and try to make a point to be up late at night just to get that last batch of auctions in after most others have gone to sleep in hope of making a bit of profit.

But by then haven't most of the buyers logged off for the night too?

Ah, but if he lists late at night, then his will be the cheapest or nearly cheapest the next morning, when players start logging on. Less activity during the day means his auctions will likely dominate until the next evening, when most people start logging on. Ideally, by the time his competitors have logged on, most of his stock for that day will have already sold.

Cambro is right. I make most of my gold this way and generally sell most of my auctions very early in the morning. My server has a lot of mid-day to evening campers that drive prices down, sometimes enough that I or other bigger Auctioneers can reset the prices, agian done late at night by fellow AH Hunters and/or myself. I like it when I can buy up all the 3g gems and reset to something more acceptable like 300g and people pay those reset prices and sometimes it takes a few days to get prices back down to 3g. Anyway late-night posting isn't for instant gratification, it's to ensure that when the realm starts to bustle I am in a competitive position.
