The trading post won't be extremely profitable in a couple days towards a week. Only reason people can make so much right now is because it's new and all of the items were in seperate towns. Once the items start spreading out more, you will make little profit by doing this.

That's a mistake, highest possible item that gave the most profit was 1m. You'd buy items for 1m and resell them for 2.7m. But now that the items are being spread out now, the buying price is starting to increase and the selling price is starting to decrease. It's like 1.2m to buy and about 2.4m to resell now
