Think Like a Trader: How to Get Maximum Value as a Gamer

You might not think there’s any skill in buying game tokens, but there is. The sheer number of vendors selling these means that you can get a great deal if you’re prepared to shop around.

We, of course, make things easier for you by collating products from different vendors, so you’ve got hundreds of options within a single platform.

However, just because you’ve got options, it doesn’t mean you’ll always make the right choices. With this in mind, we urge you to think like a trader when it comes to buying tokens. Although they’re not exactly the same thing, they have similar aims.

The Goal is to Get Maximum Value

Specifically, you want to get maximum value when you’re trading a financial instrument, just as you want to get the best deal possible when you’re buying game tokens.

Therefore, if you can think like a trader, you stand a better chance of getting maximum value when you buy game tokens.

A great way to unpack how traders think is to look at the tools they use. One of the most popular and powerful trading tools is MetaTrader 5 (MT5).

This platform is a gateway into the financial markets, but, more importantly, it has a variety of features that allow traders to make better decisions.

Some of MT5's best features are:

  • Access to hundreds of tradable commodities
  • Technical indicators, i.e. mathematical patterns based on historical data
  • Automated trading tools
  • Analysis tools, such as economic calendars and news reports
  • Trading signals, i.e. snippets of analytical information from experienced traders

A trader can use all of these tools to analyze the markets they’re interested in and buy or sell financial instruments at a price they deem to be optimal.

Buying game credits isn't exactly the same, as prices don't fluctuate the same way. However, you may find that there are differences between vendors. For example, you can open Roblox lobby and see the following offer:

  • 100 Robux for Rp. 10,000 at Roblox Shop
  • 110 (+11) Robux for Rp. 11,000 at Acumalaka Store

Both offers look attractive, but which is the best if you want to buy Roblox's native game token, Robux? This is where you can start thinking like a trader.

Someone using MT5 can use technical indicators (patterns based on historical data) to find a potentially profitable spot.

As someone buying Robux, you can look back at a vendor’s previous price data. Is the current price in line with previous increases, i.e. is the pattern consistent with market trends? If you notice that the vendor’s price for 100 Robux seems out of line with previous trends, ask yourself why.

It might be because Robux is in demand or it could be because the vendor is trying to make more profit. There’s nothing wrong with the latter, but you want to find the best deal.

MT5 users can also opt to receive signals from reputable traders who are given a rating. We have a similar system. You can see how many sales a vendor has made, their rating, and the average processing time for their transactions.

This information is hugely valuable when it comes to finding the best deal. A vendor might be charging less than another. However, if they’ve got a poor rating or transactions take a long time, it might not be a better deal.

So, in this regard, you’re using signals to find the best vendors. Buying game tokens isn’t the same as trading, but that doesn’t mean you can’t think like a trader when you want to get the most bang for your buck. A trader analyzes the market and considers different variables, and you can do the same.
