Bulk Trading

Last year China introduced the world to bulk trading of domain names. The traditional approach is for investors to buy one or two good quality domain names at a time, and then wait for end user companies to buy the domain names in order to develop websites.

However, bulk trading is about buying much lesser quality domain names but at very cheap prices, and then flip them for a profit. Say, you buy a domain name for $10 and immediately flip it for $15. That gives you a return of 50%. If you buy and then sell 100,000 domain names of such quality, then the total profit becomes very significant. In this case, the domain names are never intended for website development. In other words, it’s about speculation — pure trading among investors. Bulk domain trading is not a new concept. In currency trading, for example, 95% of currencies are traded everyday among speculators with no intention of using the currencies to purchase products or services.

What an interesting but risky concept. I can't really imagine how profitable the system is because trend changes every minute, so what's popular yesterday may lose the fame today. In that sense, it sounds more like a losing battle.

I'm sorry, but I don't see this catching on except with a small niche of investors. I also don't see how you can flip a less than desirable name for a profit unless something changes to make it more desirable. Speculation that it will......hoping that it will......is not enough to warrant a higher asking price in my opinion.

Trend is something which can be hard to predict, but it can also be created. Perhaps they also create the buzz over specific topics so the domains they have will have better value as time goes. I can see why this becomes an interesting game for certain folks. I want to know how successful this has been, though. After all, only big companies with huge funds can manage this risky method.
 
So, bulk trading is about buying a ton of crappy quality domain names but at very cheap prices, and then try to sell it for a profit aferwards. . Is not different compared to hoarding bitcoins or buying an entire stock of scarce goods to sell it locally and turn into a profit. I regard this as an unproductive activity, but nevertheless an opportunity business chance.
