Getting caught in flipping

SDS

A short story. I was flipping the Jimmy Rollins card because it had a decent margin. I check the past buy and sell prices and see its not too crazy, so I won't get burned. I buy and sell once. I buy again and then the bottom absolutely just drops out on this card. Like a what-the-heck kind of drop. It's down 6,000 in stubs both ways from what it was when I started this afternoon and what the typical buy and sell have been for it over the past week. I'm scratching my head. I look at all the rest of the market and it doesn't seem too far off.

Dude... Aristides Aquino hit the crash on me one day, but it was a silly mistake on my end. Should have known those margins were too good to be true.
Dude’s buy now price was going for like 1,600. I got 3 of those suckers... ended up eating about 2k stubs.

He is in the headliners pack you get from the mothers day conquest map. So either a lot of people are pulling him or they are trying to sell him off before others do and crash his market.

That’s why I don't play the flipping game anymore, bhall. Can I tell you something? I played it full on in New York. I played it high-stakes. For keeps. Made it to the top. But look what it cost. Can I tell you what else I learned?
