    If you're here because you're a new trader, this ain't the guide. Read this or this or this (rip dark mode users) instead.

    1. You can check your bazaar and point market when you're in hosp or flying via API.

    In hosp or flying and want to check what's left on your bazaar or whether someone undercut your point listings? No problem, just use API links. Copy and paste the following link to your browser for the full listing on the market:

    Point market:
    https://api.torn.com/market/?selections=pointsmarket&key=[YOUR API KEY HERE]

    Bazaar:
    https://api.torn.com/user/[YOUR TORN ID HERE]?selections=bazaar&key=[YOUR API KEY HERE]

    I'd recommend reading up on API website for more creative ways to use API. Completely legal, of course, unfortunately.

    2. Have the bazaar tab and various relevant tabs open and ready at all time.
    After you open your bazaar and self-hosped or flew, leave the bazaar tab open. Do not ever refresh or close it. Pop it out and hide it somewhere so you won't accidentally close it if you can.
    Why? So you can do this for a near instant bazaar-close as illustrated below. This would prevent muggers from sniping you as you medding out or landing back in Torn:



    Same goes for point and property market, after listing out your points or properties, quickly refresh so your listing is visible before self-hosping and have the tab open always before you med out. If need be, have multiple tabs ready so you can quickly click through to delist the listing.

    3. Use your enemy list strategically.
    Blacklisting is generally useless if you're wide open for 1000+ others to mug you. On top of the fact that those you blacklisted simply can circumvent your blacklist by asking others to buy before they mug, you're rejecting potential customers from buying your shit when you're reaching Stat Enhancer trading range because let's face it, you'd be mugging like tomorrow when you reach SE stat range as well.
    However, blacklisting muggers who are quicker than your internet speed and denying them from pulling off 2-3 second mugs is a good idea. Let them purchase from your bazaar when you're in hosp and Disallow exchange when you're about to med out. Think of your allow exchange function in the enemy list like the retarded-but-extremely-strong cousin of your "turning off revive" function. Why? Because like the revive function, learn to get used to double checking the "allow exchange" function whenever you're medding out.




    After you're used to the trading routine, the only times you should get mugged are when you overslept your hosp timer, forgot to turn off revive or doing a self-mug by missing a digit (or several) in your listings.
