About a month and a half ago (on June 29th), I wrote an article named "Better Frigates And Some Easy Profits This Summer" where I wrote about the upcoming changes that CCP had announced they were making to the game months in advance of the changes happening. The main changes were to Frigates and Mining Barges.
Toward the bottom of that article I said the biggest profits would most likely be made from Retrievers because they are the most accessible and possibly the ones that are getting the biggest "buff" of all the barges.
What was my advice?
BUY Retrievers and then wait until the changes went into effect to sell them!
Smart readers quickly snatched up billions of ISK worth of Retrievers at the then low price of 8 Million ISK each. My prediction was that the prices would jump to 15-20 million ISK for a few days after the patch.
In the ISK PRO Guide I talk about this little Market Trading trick and how consistent it is at producing 200-300% investment returns on almost EVERY patch. (and that's just the "obvious" trade, there are more ways I talk about to make ISK from patches).
So what happened?
The prediction was EXACTLY right! Check out this screen shot I just took in Jita for Proof:

The "Sell" price on August 8th - 10th was 18 Million ISK, and it even peaked at 19 Million on the 10th! That's a over 200% Return on Investment for those who took my advice and executed this super simple Market Trade. Easy ISK huh?
To all of you who made billions off this trade, go buy your self a bunch of new PVP ships and go on a PVP bender for the next few weeks!
