To Hoard or to Sell DFO Gold?

With 85 cap and the official launch of the game underway, the market's probably gonna take another shift and I don't know if I'm prepared for it.

 

So my question is:

 

Is it a good idea to sell things of value (e.g. materials, unique equipment, etc) now before the prices take a hit or should I hoard them for later since they'll have some use sooner or later?

 

A sample situation is a Burning Wave Ring I just got from grinding Mount Hardt. I have a Mechanic that would benefit from the +11 Fire damage but its value stands at 8-10mil in the AH right now. I'm considering selling it at a profit and possibly buying another one in the future when prices have settled or just keeping it.

 

To hoard or to sell dfo gold?

 

Is the Burning Wave Ring something you would keep equipped? Or would it just be a "good enough" alternative to something else? If it's not ideal, you can sell it for a huge profit and then potentially have a bunch of fresh money to put toward the ideal you'd like, as a potential outcome.

 

I keep uniques I know I'll be able to give to someone, especially if they're of higher qualities. I'm also a compulsive material hoarder, from cube fragments to seals to gemstones to crafting parts to pre-Antwer merchant-trading materials to Kartel- and sea pirate-themed junk. (This is partially why I really like the account vault upgrades.) It saves me a lot of time on the collection quests for those areas.
