Why I believe that price suggestions should not happen during the Summer Sale

      I'm not sure if anyone else has discussed this topic before, but I believe that price suggestions should not occur during the summer sale. Take this statement with a grain of salt please. I still believe that there should be some suggestions, but can we slow down a bit with the price drops? People are listing their stranges, genuines, vintages, and other marketable items on the market for very steep discounted prices. They're also creating trades on Bazaar and Outpost, where they're selling items for less than their "backpack.tf" price. This is because they want fast cash to buy games on sale. People will quicksell anything to get a good deal. After all, selling an item for 20% off it's value to get a game that's 90% off is still a great deal for them.

 

    In a few weeks, months, etc. most prices will jump up again. Others will be forgotten for months. The desire for wallet cash won't be as significant as it was during the sale. Less people will quicksell their items.

Well, we are just here to report prices as the market stands currently. You are correct, they do quicksell alot of things, but when prices jump back up afterward, the market will restabilize itself.

 

(Well, Im not here to report things accurately, I have 1 accepted suggestion. But you get my point)

The big thing to note though is while people are quick to sell during a big Steam sale, they aren't as quick to buy back after the sale. It can take weeks, even months, for prices of some items to rebound to what they were pre-sale.

Backpack.tf wants to be as accurate as possible as often as possible. This means if the market shifts during a sale then it should shift it's prices as well. It wouldn't be accurate if it didn't. If it changes later on then backpack responds in kind. 
These are the natural shifts in the market. Ignoring them would be a mistake. You never know when these temporary sales drastically affect the market in the long term.

If it´s a bunch of people selling lower then that becomes the market, if trades are even designated quicksells, they won´t get counted anyway.
