We know scalpers are everywhere right now. Is the price of DDR3 and DDR4 ram sticks gonna increase much? Is there a trend of price increase? How about SSD?
Kindly share your market watch at your area.

Yes ram will increase a little due to material supply issues. I wouldn't expect it to be as bad as a few years ago though and thus 'investing' in RAM is likely not without some decent risk. .

Maybe a slight bump but RAM and SSDs are both well saturated in the secondhand market so I don't think you'll have any problem finding a deal. Both are well matured in their current forms. Nothing really "new" in either segment.

Ram prices are gonna skyrocket when the warehouses have an "outage" ;)

Prices are definitely on the increase. Don't think it'll hit the peak heights of twoish years ago though.

Just saw a story at techpowerup saying that ddr3 prices are going to increase by 50% this year due to the big three cutting production permanently. No news about ddr4.
