Currently I am asset rich, but time and (comparitvly) cash poor. As I am not on enough to dominate markets (especially glyphs) any more, I am looking again at other markets; especially where I have surplus stockpiles.
Recently I have been looking at my jewelcrafter, both ore (obsidium, elementium, and pyrite), and northrend epic cuts (which I had some left over).
Northrend epic cuts are selling for as much as they did when the lich king was still alive - in the 100-200g price range. Not as consistently, but much better than something I nearly vendored. I have not paid much attention to what is selling, but when I am in a position to spend more time crafting will be re-evaluating this market.
Rumour (and datamining by MMO Champion) has it that in 4.1, cut cata basic gems will have a substantially lower vendor value (down from 9g to 75s). Many sites claim this will be the end of the obsidium ore shuffle. I (like Breevok) am not so sure. The consortium's shuffle flow chart has only zephyrite being cut and vendored. However in the interests of reducing my stockpiles (that I only see dropping in value), I have shuffled my existing ores, and vendored most (but not all) of my zephyrite. As the jury is out on any possible epic gem prospecting (possibly from pyrite ore), I will continue to maintain my comparitivly small pryite stockpile. For the gems I did cut, I am selling my perfect cuts via the AH, which seems to be a market with remarkably few players.
I will be spending a little more time going through my professions and stockpiles, looking to turn those stockpiles back into available gold.
