Tips on price spikes


  • 1. Events that trigger spikes: performance in specific tournament deck, speculation hype, or a buy out.

  • 2. If you have been sitting on a volume spec and it spiked, it maybe time to start offloading.

  • 3. If foil prices haven't spiked yet, 80% of the time they will. If you catch a spike early, a quick foil investment could be profitable.

  • 4. Opportunity to make on a spike is at most a 2 week window.

  • 5. Every card has a cap based on demand. There are some exceptions to these numbers, but here is a general guideline on the caps.
    Modern: common $4, uncommon $9, rare/mythic $90
    Standard: common $1.5, uncommon $3, rare $20, mythic $40.
