Log Entry #007: Buy Low, Sell High

Ray Gateway, DIAGUANDRI

Back on Ray Gateway again, I feel worn out. That was legitimately a day's hard work. Whoever says that trading is a shortcut to credits needs to think again. This is not as easy as I thought.

The basic idea of trading is straightforward: 'Buy low, sell high', foolproof isn't it? Sure, but it is a real hassle to find those lows and highs. Many times I was stuck with a whole cargo bay of goods, desperately searching all across the galaxy for a place to drop them off. More often I finally found a profitable route, only to exhaust the supply after a few runs. A both profitable and long-lasting trade route is hard to come by. On top of that, those merchants at station markets are unbelievably greedy and would say just about anything to fool you. I almost punched that bastard when he said my lithium shipment was worth only half the price because it was ionized as I flew past the system's sun. Seriously, dude!!!

Moreover, there wasn't much peace in between the buying and selling either. Apparently, a ship full of gold but no weapon really presents an attractive target for those pirates. Interdictions just kept coming. Fortunately, I was able to evade all interdictions or slip into the space stations before they had any chance. I would hate to engage anyone in this piece of hulking metal.

On the bright side, it does pay very well once I got a few routes up. I'm saving all the credits for the moment. Maybe I can accumulate a big enough sum to make some serious investments.

CMDR Li, signing off.
