The cagiest bidders hold off til right near the very end because if you put your max bid out early, it gives other bidders time to talk themselves into bidding more than they planned.

Yes that's correct there's a Pentax 50mm F1.2, very rare on e-bay uk at the moment, for the next 45 mins anyway that has steadily climbed to €300+ over the last few days and will probably shoot up at the end, there's absolutely no need to bid before the last few seconds, though of course you can still be beaten.

If you don't toss your real high bid out til the end, they don't have time to respond.

There is unfortunately one snag and it's happened to me on a couple of occasions where the site fouled up and the bid went in too late.

I use a service that places my bid within the last ten seconds of an auction and it has worked for me many times. And it's free for up to 5 auctions a week.

I didn't know such things existed, have you a link ?
