Hello there everyone. Hope you all are doing great! ^-^

Tf2 finance : --> 8.85 ref ; 9.00

1 at 8.77 ref

1 at 8.88 ref

10+ at 9.00 ref

Rest are 9.11 ref and higher

Buyers at 8.66 ref

Buyers at 8.77 ref

Solds at 9.00 ref --> x15+ --> x4+ --> x4 --> x3 --> x3+ --> x2 --> x2 --> x2 --> Out of stock. --> Out of stock. --> Plenty of keys, not sure how many sold. ---> x3 --> 9.11 ref --> 9.11 ref --> 9.11 ref ; x5 --> 9.11 ref ; x8+ --> 9.22 ref --> 9.33 ref ; x3 --> 9.33 ref ; x4


Conclusion : 9.00 ref is the most common trading point at the moment.


Add : Almost whole 1 day on here. That is all I could find.


Add 2 : This will be the highest as keys has ever been on market. Never reached 9.


Feel free to hate, support or give good counter-proof.

        i wouldnt say that in public


        seriously. and why is it ALWAYS this guy that raises the price of keys?

      Organized Proof, Upvote

          I know it's off topic and spam, but i need to know how you make the gradient color text. pls dont kill me ;-;

            You mean the one I use for the bottom part of every suggestion? Type this at Google search : "rainbow color html" and you should have quite a few good sites. The beginning ones. The best one is the patorjk (The one I use) from my point of view. If you use that site, make sure to change the "Output Code" to "Standard Forum Code"

            Have fun. ^_^

            It is time #9 On ze road to it now! 😈

              this is actually good

              you want to know why?


              KEY REF REC SCRAP

              1 = 9 = 27 = 81

                At least we will have convenience for 3 days.

                    Key price goes up ref price goes down. Inflation? maybe, the way ref is made and ''crafted'' into something else changes the rules of inflation in a way.

                    i remember when keys were 6 ref and 6 ref was around $2 now its worth 8.66 ref and that's worth $2.14, you don't need to be a genius that this is a bad sign

                    Anyway the thing about this is that you have ALOT of proof of this, and the shocking thing keys are raising like crazy.


                    thank you sir it is very relieving to see a real key suggestion after all the spam ones

                        If I stop, do you really think suggestions won't come up? Please. I was actually counter-suggesting this suggestion at the beginning.

               Then the other suggester closed that suggestion himself because mine was more accurate.

                        If I stop suggesting, there will be just another person taking over my place. ^-^ I don't run the market sir, I am just trying to update the current market price from time to time.

                          alright , i apologise, i was too pissed at the time and typed crap without thinking :P

                            Its all good sir/ma'am! ^-^ Good luck buying :)

                        much proof much vote

                        Darn, i was just about to post this :/ Anyways, good proof!

                          Soon, our beloved keys might reach it's first quadruple digits (10.00 if you know what i mean)

                          I knew this is coming, but I just sold my key for 8.88 :(

                              I've easily sold 8 keys for 9 ref, upvote

                                *clap clap clap clap clap* Nice work!

                                    Because rules are rules.

                                    Not to mention what could happen if Keys got a price jump like that instantly.

                           also buys them for 8.77.

                                      Insta-yes vote as I saw your name

                                      Nice proof you got.

                                        lol when i was selling 1 key for 8.88 ref, i receive about 5 trade offers in 1 min


                                          Nice proof. If this is accepted, this will be the highest price keys have ever been!

                                          BTW some extra proof, I buy for 8.77 each:

                                              you rule the keys economy

                                              very very good proof upvote!

                                                i think it should be 9 ref! cuz its easier to "count ur metal" and if u get a sick drop which (in my oppinion) happens quite often i think u should pay more for it

                                                  Now we can't post keys on outpost properly even with just refs. There simply isn't enough spot to place 9 refs on the right side of the trade...

                                                    WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TOO!!!

                                                      NOW WE HAVE TO USE THE NOTES SECTION!!!!

                                                      Nice proof.

                                                      This is sad but true... :'(

                                                      you got my upvote

                                                        Just sold 5 keys for 8.88 in 2 minutes flat using classifieds. Upvoted

                                                            If it was "Not ready" for 9.00 ref, I wouldn't find much sales at 9.00 ref and find tons of many sales at 8.66. Yes, there are many sellers at 8.66 but not enough for it to be considered "most common" anymore. 8.66 - 8.88 ref is not readily available anymore. Hell, you can find sellers at 8.00 ref every now and then but that doesn't mean 8.00 ref should be in the range.

                                                            If you are "accusing" me of cherry picking proof indirectly... Feel free to go through my past suggestions. In fact, go through my last accepted key suggestion ( )....I Kept 8.66 in the range while many many people were saying it was easy to sell at 8.77 or 8.88 and even at 9.00 ref, 8.66 should be removed and whatnot.. Why did I kept 8.66 in the range? Because it was still readily available at that time. Now forwarding 4 days, the scenario completely changed. That does not mean you can't get keys below 9.00 ref, of course you can and you have proven that. You can get keys as low as 8.00 ref if you have the patience, like I said...That doesn't mean 8.00 ref should be in the range.

                                                            Hope that cleared things up for you. ^_^ If it didn't, we can take this matter here...

                                                              The fact that they get snatched up so quickly implies that they are a quicksell and should not be in the range.

                                                                "keys can't go past 10.33 refined without crashing refined. It will become cheaper to buy from the mann co store."

                                                                you're missing the part where refined probably gets a drop (not a huge crashing drop) when keys hit that high so things probably won't crash. and frankly I still wouldn't buy them from the mann co store, I'd rather trade up for the metal with no use of real world money :|

                                                                  You want to bet? I bet you 10.33 refined keys will never get that high. Can't wait until they crash again.

                                                                  People have been pushing this price way too hard, keep it at 8.77 for a while, why the sudden need to push for buying and selling at 9 ref?

                                                                    Because 8.88 ref is a quicksell now.

                                                                      Keys will go down after halloween.

                                                                        What crash? At that point most of the traders will most likely migrate to CS:GO.

                                                                            "key market crashes and you lose all of your money" I doubt the real world value of keys will crash

                                                                              I'm slightly richer than you and you're complaining? Boo hoo, that's how the market works.

                                                                              Keys are gonna crash after Halloween, yes. But keys are, sadly, going up because they sell for prices like 9 ref. So... be quiet and enjoy the show for now.

                                                                                Ya know.. i thought they'd cap at 8.66 but what do i know?

                                                                                    Well we can't just leave keys at 8.66 when people are selling them for 9+ ref.

                                                                                      i'm selling a refined metal at 4 keys, does that mean we can't leave refined metal at 1 ref?

                                                                                      4 - 1 = 3

                                                                                                        As if keys where worth enough as it is dammit...upboat (Yes, purposely said boat)

                                                                                                          I agree. 8.88 sells really quickly. Also, our good friends sell keys for 9 and buy for 8.77.

                                                                                                            upvote sold 3 keys for 9.11 for 2 mins fast wow and 4 for 9.00

                                                                                                                  it's a nice proof, but is really hard buy a key, 9 ref really?

                                                                                                                  pppfff, what else? 10 ref next week?


                                                                                                                    Proof is good, upvote.

                                                                                                                      Unfortunately I need to Up vote xD jk keep the good job and good proofs

                                                                                                                        I hate for keys to hit this point, but the proof is solid. Upvoting.

                                                                                                                            Or 9 ref happens so much it's normal...

                                                                                                                              selling a key for 9 ref isn't really profiting anything unless you can manage to buy a new key for less and that is extremely difficult now

                                                                                                                                Unfortunately, opinions cannot change the price.

                                                                                                                                    How am I an ass? I'm just saying that you can't make the price of the item go down by just complaining. Something big has to happen to make keys being less wanted. Just like the LaW update and taunts going into the market.

                                                                                                                                  Even when they were at 8.66 flat I had a hard time buying at 9 ref, should've seen this coming sooner tho.

                                                                                                                                          Wait, tl:dr? Yes, I am looking for feedback; I'm starting to get use to writing/typing/comedieateing more causally now. Wait...comedieating is not a real word. I'm gonna write it down in my personal dictionary.

                                                                                                                                            tl:dr is a way of saying I'm too lazy to read all of that please summarize

                                                                                                                                              But yes, This is an almost critically serious review/overview of the suggestion and the effect(s) it'll have whether or not it goes through. The comical lines are just personal perks I had a crave to spit out; I thought they we're a little too delicious but that's why I'm going to eat them later, maybe...just a bite...or a nibble. Okay I'll ask for seconds and eat them after dessert. Which desert though? really, please stop. What? Heck no, I'm really feeling good about this, how about everyone else, yea? Is this creepy pasta Sparkle BuyinganyTools said it was worth eating...maybe a bite? Let me know when you get a good look at it, k? Thanks.

                                                                                                                                              P.S: I hate hashtags by the way. I just deleted the one off of Sparkle's full username.

                                                                                                                                            Don't worry here is the pattern of keys goes up to 9-10 ref then goes back down to 6-7 ref then goes up again this just the high point of the cycle

                                                                                                                                              Is this some creepy pasta?

Definite upgoat. Let's hope though, for the sake of the TF2 economy and keys, that they stick to their normal up-down cycle.

                                                                                                                                                                                      is this for you a good ref:key ratio? really? dude we will never find a good ratio if this is keep to get higher and higher! we will never find a GOOD price for everyone! and this is not a good price...this is crazy! think, who will never buy something like this at 9 ref? think about a "new" guy who want to buy a key without using money (i did it) can you imagine the numbers of items that that guy is going to craft?

                                                                                                                                                                                      and maybe he will never going to buy it because the price is getting higher and higher every month! (is just an example).

                                                                                                                                                                                      people thinking "oh ye gud pr0fs up vote for me!1!!1" personally i don't give a **** about proofs, all that i care is: what item are we talking about, what price are you going to selling it.

                                                                                                                                                                                      this is a ridicoulus price for an item like this...

                                                                                                                                                                                        You are proving my point exactly economics does not favor those who wish to get something for free. The drop system is not meant to provide people with keys. just weapons and basic hats. It is the people that BUY keys with REAL money that are actually contributing to the economy. A person that buys a key from the store can now get MORE for their real money in the form of hats and basic weapons. How can you possibly say that is a bad thing?


                                                                                                                                                                                    Sold mine for 9 ref, I'm certain this suggestion is right.

                                                                                                                                                                                      Very nice organization of proof,


                                                                                                                                                                                      (But I feel guilty inside that keys are going higher, :I)

                                                                                                                                                                                        Oh sweet baby of jesus god #Upvote

                                                                                                                                                                                          ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) not a bad idea. making every that much richer :3, i thank you Plaxorous :3 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

                                                                                                                                                                                          ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) obvious upvote from me :P ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

                                                                                                                                                                                            Why is the price of keys going up? Soon, it'll be much better to just buy it off of the Mann Co. Store.


                                                                                                                                                                                                Wow looks like a certain mod had a great time censoring all these posts lol. Ill leave my tuppence saying that i dont disagree with this suggestion, i just find it ridiculous

                                                                                                                                                                                                  How is this ridiculous if everyone is buying keys at 9 ref at this point?

                                                                                                                                                                                                    One might suggest i was referencing the general ridiculousness of tf2 trading, and as i said, i dont disagree with the suggestion.

                                                                                                                                                                                                  Are keys allowed to rise this much on

                                                                                                                                                                                                    So much useless comments. Why do you keep posting "upvote" "good proof" etc? That's why there's a vote system.

                                                                                                                                                                                                      As much as I hate to see the price going up again, you're like the only one who actually post decent prices. I applaud you!
