In this week’s article, I am going to take a page from my favorite sportswriter, ESPN’s Bill Simmons. Near the beginning and middle of each major sports season, Bill always writes an article “power ranking” each team from worst to best. This acts as a handy way to get a feel for the relative power […]
Welcome back to the Revenue Review, where this week we will actually be reviewing some revenue. School and work have conspired to keep me from trading as often as I’d like, but I made it out to Game Day on Saturday to move some cards. One thing was certain. It had to be better than […]
This week Stephen shows some Gordon Gekko is his article, keeping supply lines open in tough times, and how a little research can provide 100%+ profits.
Last week I ended by talking about some things to look for when comparing prices across different sites. By keeping an eye out for prices that generally remain the same across sites and others that vary significantly you can set up trades that will net you some value even if they appear even according to […]
While last week, my article was pretty focused, today is going to be a bit more widespread in regards to topics. A lot of stuff has crossed my path over the past week, so I’ll do my best to talk to you about all of it. First off I’d like to just put in some […]

Hey Everyone, I’m going to steal a bit of Kelly’s thunder here to give you a bit of information. My name is David Conrad, current Editor here at Quiet Speculation. I’m the guy behind the scenes making sure all of the articles get out. When I started to realize the theme of Peter Jahn’s article […]
What’s up guys? How have you all been? It’s been over a month since my last article and there have been a few reasons for it. The first is I am starting a company and have been spending a lot of time working the finances and getting a plan into place. The second reason has […]
As many of you may know my contributions to Quiet Speculation are a work in progress. I can’t tell you the hours I spend each week crunching down this data, mostly because I don’t keep track. I had originally intended a different topic for this week, but due to the complexity involved there wasn’t enough […]
Magic Online promos. Do you love them or hate them? I must confess. Personally I get obsessed over them sometimes. Should I? Probably not. But there’s just something about their shiny, MTGO symbol underlay-ed, alternate art awesomeness that draws me in. It doesn’t help that it’s normally the first thing you see in your trade […]
(Note: This is written in response to this article by Peter Jahn) Dear Mr. Jahn, Let me first begin by saying that I enjoyed your articles on Star City Games, despite the fact that I wasn’t necessarily the target audience. I really enjoyed the UST you were running even though I didn’t play when 90 […]
This last week there were two rather interesting articles brought to my attention. The first by Peter Jahn here and the second, a response by our own Kelly Reid. Both articles raise interesting points and the discussion of Jahn’s article was a good read as well. So why is it ok for me to knowingly […]
This week Stephen gives us the new trading system he promised, and covers the last aspects of marketing.
