I’ve noticed over the last two years that #mtgfinance has clear movers (researchers/content creators) and followers (consumers looking for purchasing advice), but that the overall output is an enigma in retail-based economics. The movers are those who put a lot of time in (1/6)
asking questions and researching hypotheses, and who ultimately have a pulse on the #MTG community at all times. The followers of #mtgfinance are a broader group, some looking to it for money-saving tips on cards they may or may not use; others hoping to simply profit. (2/6)
I also learned over the last two years the importance of identifying with one of two #mtgfinance subgroups and master it rather than trying to do (or be) part of both in parallel. I encourage you to review your position in #mtgfinance and ensure your capital is being used (3/6)
in EXACTLY the way you want it to be. For example, if you identify w/ the subgroup wanting to profit, do NOT fall into the pitfalls of trying to “beat the spike”. If you miss, there will be more. If you hit on a spec, don’t get greedy. And if you have a bad call, fail fast. (4/6)
Conversely, if you identify with the subgroup trying to keep #MTG cheaper to play, don’t worry about specs and instead trust your instincts. As a player, you KNOW the game as well as anyone. If you believe in a card because you want to play it, trust your gut. You’re right. (5/6)
Overall, I feel that trusting your instincts as a player are most important because you set the tone for yourself to become a “mover”. The data which movers of #mtgfinance turn into usable information comes from player demand. If you’re a player you are part of that data.
