I was trying to explain this to others in game, and gave up.

Read this slow. It's hard at first, easy once you get it.
THE OTHER TREND RUN GUIDE(probably the better one)(posted below)


First: Get this list copy and paste it to a word document
Trader Goods and  Ports (Guide)

Second: Start in Asia
This gives you the chance to trade a level 9 or 10 good to Europe twice.  Keep in mind you CANNOT trade the same good twice within a trend run.

Third: Find main good
Use the Business Spy Card found in the in game Item Mall, under the Item tab.(they are cheap) Figuring out where each city is intimidating at first, you'll get used to it.  From Asia to Europe the main good is USUALLY a level 9 or 10 good from Zhigu, Quanzhou, Seoul, Edo, or Nagasaki. USUALLY you take it to Stockholm, Oslo, Amsterdam, or Reykjavik.   From Europe to Asia your main good will USUALLY be a level 6 or 7 good from Stockholm, Oslo, Amsterdam, or Reykjavik. And USUALLY bring it to Zhigu, Quanzhou, Seoul, Edo or Nagasaki.   More points for distance, and speed. Main good=Highest level, furthest distance. Speed adds more points.

Fourth:Multipliers
Within 1 trend run, you need 3 multipliers. These are low level goods that you pick up found on the route of your main good. Sell these multipliers before you sell main good.  If you use 3 multipliers on the way from Asia to Europe you DO NOT need to do it again from Europe to Asia

Practice Practice Practice
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Once you have gotten the hang of doing those steps you can start to get fancy with it.

Place 4 alts at the destination of your main good. Each team mate in the area while you sell your main good will give you 10% more trade points (Rumor is last person in team will get most points)
Don't be scared to use at least 20 Business Spy Cards per run.

Trading Points / Trend Trading Guide





Many players asked me how I do trends and how I get many Trading Point Cards so I decided to make this guide.

First of all what trading means: Buy and sell goods in cities that need a specific good.
Secondly what a trend means: An interval of 1 hour and 11 minutes when different cities need different goods (this is random).
After the trend ends another one will start with different goods.
You can check how much time left after someone promulgate(Trader -> Market -> The Promulgate latest information about fashion).
After someone promulgate goods needed in that city and the time left for the trend will appear in Popular channel:



Things that you will need:

1. Business Spy Card


After you use one a pop out icon will appear with goods that you can sell in that city. Example:


TIP: in case you clicked Yes button and the pop out disappeared you still can see what goods are needed in normal chat as a [Prompt]:

2. A list of all goods on your desktop (printed)
TIP: in addition you should have this lil list:
Main Good -Afroasian-
  • Silver
  • Crystals
  • Stone Carvings


Main Good -Atlantic-
  • Antler decoration
  • Bear Gallbladder
  • Bronze ware
  • Ginseng
  • Ivory Carvings
  • Pure White Lotus
  • Sculpture
  • Tulip


3. A high load ship that sail fast
TIP: use a lvl 13 raider with a nice figurehead. lvl 11 raider will work as well!

4.Level 10 Purchasing


5. A good starting position
TIP: My advice is to start from Zhigu.

6. A team (your choice, but for maximum points i recommend a full team)


After you have all of those you will need to plan youre rute.
TIP:
  • Planning a route fast will require to stop chatting with other players and clear youre popular chatscreen
  • Plan your route right away when a trend start not in middle of trend






Planning route


1.  Use Business Spy Card to find out what goods you can sell to get Trading Point Cards (not all cities will have a player at trader to promulgate when a trend starts)
TIP:
  • Use this order to check the cities:
    Stockholm -> Amsterdam-> Bordeaux -> Lisbon -> Seville -> Algiers -> Barcelona

    If u find one of the lvl 9 goods there that you are lucky.
  • if u didn't find any lvl 9 good there than check this cities:
    Istanbul -> Beirut -> Alexandria -> Athena -> Madeira -> Las Palmas -> Dakar


IMPORTANT: You can chek in what order you want this is only my option but u can make your own order if u think u have one better.

2. Write down on a paper
From were to buy good -> good needed -> were to sell it

3. After you find out your "Main good" you will need 3 multipliers
Multipliers are goods that are usefull only to get more trading points out of youre main good.
You will need to use multipliers only ONCE every trend.
You don't need to buy them in high ammount or high lever or far distance... 1 is good enough and recommended
If u find a city with main good look at other goods and try to bring those as many goods in 1 city so u don't have to stop in many places.

You will need to sell 1st 3 multipliers than the main good.


IMPORTANT: You can sell only ONCE a good every trend
-ie: sell silver in Lisbon... Seville ask too for silver... you cannot sell again silver.





After you successfully sold a popular good you will get this ticket:


Trade Frequency - how many routes u made till that moment

Popularity Points - values are 0-3-6-10-15 - will increase your trading points (multipliers are used to get lvl 3,6 and 10 values and main good to get 15 more bonus trading points)

Caravan Increase - every team member in same area with you while selling good will increase your trading points by 10% (full team = 4 additional members with you = 40% more trading points)

Additional Info's:
  • Sell the main good only when all team members are in same scene.
  • After sold main good and got 15 Popularity Points all goods that you will sell in that trend will have 15 Popularity Points.


    Top players will get:

      [1st]50,000 TPC
      [2nd]20,000 TPC
      [3rd]10,000 TPC



Example Of Trend



After one businesses u get this:


On your paper you should Write :
Zighu->silver-> Stockholm -full load
Zighu->silk fabric-> Stockholm - x1
Nagasaki-> lien -> Stockholm - x1
Cape Town -> coffe -> Stockholm -x1

and you get all of those and sell in Stockholm and last on the silver


It's easy to do trading but it's a lil hard to explain ... you just need to do it again and again and again and again and again and again and again AND YOU WILL GET IT IN THE END


Special Thanks to

I wait all players (Columbus) to join trade teams with me

***NOTE: think that's all for them moment... if needed more I'll post as a comment***
