Many thanks to Davidite for pointing out the Instant Grand Exchange Update Notifier on the LumbridgeCity Forums! I know there are several ways to get notified when the grand exchange updates – but each service offers something unique!
The timing of the updates on the G.E. is more important to some styles of merchanting than others. Long term merchanters don’t have to pay such close attention to the timing of the updates, but swing traders, solo flippers and junk traders can make bigger profits if they can respond quickly.
Some people call it ‘Camping At The G.E.’ – where a player stays logged in to Runescape with the trade window open – watching for the price to change… so they can be the very FIRST orders placed at the new price levels. This activity is also referred to as ‘Sniping’ – when trying to buy an item in a sold-out rising market by placing the first high bid immediately when the Grand Exchange Updates.
I created a quick Runescape video on YouTube and blog post to help get the word out to the growing group of LumbridgeCity Solo Merchanters – This will be a perfect solution for many Runescape Merchanters who want to get notified instantly when the Grand Exchange Updates.
