Glitch or Feature?
When items become popular and double in price, I'm still able to buy them for the normal price in the Merchant's guilds. This allows me to make a lot of profit as I can just buy them for that price and sell them for 240%, but I'm curious if this is intended.

The normal buying price for items is 70% of base price. For red items it's 84%. So the price has increased when you buy them, but not by much. So yes, you can make a killing if you buy red items and manage to sell them right away.

Really 84% ?
I thought the instructions says that the merchants guild sell items for a set (static) price?

Nope, it varies with the announcements.

Blue: 56% of baseprice.
Normal: 70% of baseprice.
Red: 84% of baseprice.

Funny, I always thought that blue was around 40% and red 100%. Just goes to show you should always check.

Thanks for the info! IMO red items should be more expensive, as the profit margins are ridiculous, although having 700k in the 4th week was nice :)
