Football Index for the rich to get richer?
Don't look at it with pound signs £££££ as the best way in my eyes is to think in percentages %%%% because someone might invest £10,000 and return profit of £1000, then theirs me maybe you and a lot of people investing £100 & returning £10 yes we all would prefer to return the 1000 but we both only won 10% each so £10 to reinvest and work towards the £1000 with %%%%% not £££££££ ?????

@Journey that was gonna be my point. Even in the 5 n a half months ive been on here I've seen times when its took a lit of bottle to have big money in pogba. I've only been on him about 9 days and I even reckon that took a little bit of bottle with all the uncertainty.
Like everyone else has said, it's all about ROI. Im not minted, I've put about £3.5k in since Feb and made about £1600 profit. That's worth while to me but it's all relative. Somebody like that EJ probably has that down the back of the settee so for it to be worthwhile to him he probably needs to make at least 10 times that just to keep him interested, it's what u make of it, like everything else in life
New players emerge all the time, value emerges all the time. Whoever researches well and invests in them makes the same percentage , whether it’s £10 or 10k

They'll still make pennies per share on Pogba, same as you can make buying the right MB players.
There are some bargains to be had lower down the player list.
I can quote players that I've bought for under 40p that are above 60p.....ok not £7 each...but a 50% profit is the same whether its Pogba or a full-back in Spain.
stick to your limits investment wise, research, find a bargain and before Xmas you'll be thinking 'who needs Pogba'

its also wrong to equate 'research' with skill. The only skill you need is to be able to read the market... you can find the most undervalued player by a load of metrics, but it matters not a jot if the rest of the market isn't interested.
I've been TRADING on FI since early june. I have traded a couple of player's to profit from the market whilst building my port and showing monthly net growth of 16.16% !!!!!! LOOKING FORWARD TO 19/20 SEASON ??????? The Anticipation, The Excitement But Most Of ALL Lets Trade, Hold & EARN Some DIVIDENDS!!!!!
The more you put in the more you get out, Rich people definitely have the funds to make serious money but you’ve still got to pick the right players and do your research, I agree with some of your post but there’s still skill and knowledge involved
@Gregolocky I’ve got a 17k port(ok, not big) and my app wouldn’t stop loading, freezing and kicking me out!

How much have you deposited? There is decent opportunities for everyone on here!
My Port is only £500 but if I can turn that into £1000 to £1500 by the end of season then i'll be happy??? hopefully this time next year we are all millionaires finger's crossed while I dream

@Timothee-Atouba I know the feeling mate, had laptop out on WiFi and iPhone on 4g and still was miles behind some traders and bots
The rich (e.g those who invest the most) will get richer because, we’ll, they’ve invested more heavily, so IPD’s and divs from PB and MB will be higher.
As a smaller investor, there’s definitely other ways to become profitable. I’m a smaller investor myself and I’ve concentrated at the bottom end of the market, specifically players under 60p and with a small spread and rises I’ve encountered have been quite significant. As a follower of Köln in Germany, I got on Jorge Mere at 33p, he’s now 48p, so a profit of 15p per share, for example.

Trading is a capitalist tool in a capitalist market. For sure, the more cash you have access to, the more you will make.
Stop moaning about the rich, they are the ones that ultimately push prices up quicker as they buy in big chunks
Agree - it’s all about percentages.
It’s like saying I won’t invest in the stock market as I’m putting less than than the big boys.
Silly topic but u had to reply :-)

I'm 50/50 with you on that...
50 I'm with you.
Today I didn't buy but watched a friend in frantic frenzy try to buy new shares in players...blatantly cheating buggers with Bots got thousands of cheap futures and a sold them for a 100% profit earlier , the prices flew up in seconds....
50 I'm with others
Not sure if you know about the share split.
So when people had pogba, Neymar etc @£15 each they split it down to 3 futures of £5 each so new people could buy into them, thus giving people on the platform more shares but cheaper holds etc so 30 shares turned into 90!!
So they reap the dividend awards but initial investment steep.
If only I started this earlier but I'm only 2 months also in, hold who you believe in and I'm gonna try and flip IPD 's for dividends..
🤡I'm a £1000 In which is a lot of money to me, (Mrs and kids don't need to know) but if I can double it whilst knowing I can pull out when needed everyone is a winner...cheaper than losing a football bet at bookies..
🤠 enjoy the ride Cowboy!!!

I can’t say anything anyone else hasn’t already said. I’m sorry, but it almost sounds like jealousy.
Get on with it or leave.
@Pagey74 i have a 10k portfolio,thats rich to someppl but others not....and yet i only have £200 profit since june 4th and have 100 shares in all the big guns and a few little extras in cheaper guys...main thing for me on top of that 200 quid is the 121 in dividends ive had so it does pay sometimes to have the big boys im just hoping it goes up even more as ive never done a season yet only one transfer window.

Sorry @Pagey74 , think you are well off of the mark on this topic.
You have already widely stated your strategy is to research the lower end of the market and hope for CA and maybe the occasional PB. That is a good strategy that works for many and good luck to you.
I didn't see you commenting on the Pogba thread as his price crashed and I and a few others were taking the opportunity to top up at high risk. I risked a lot, over 2.1K on Pogba, and over 12% of my portfolio on a big gamble which looks to have paid off (so far!). I could just have easily lost and been far behind you and your profit returns.
We can all make good money on here, regardless of whether you invest £100 or 100k. Different strategies and risks for every trader, no right or wrong answer, but not just a method for the rich to get richer!

@Martyn-B yeh that fateful Friday night when fat rat raiola made his statement sorted the men from the boys. We didn't quiver at the knees and IS like so many yellow belly lilly livered around us... We took our balls out, nailed them to the mast, topped up willing to go down with the ship! We deserve everything we get for holding/buying pogba.
@Vespasian32 thats one massive valuable lesson ive learnt on here in the month ive been on..NEVER panic...seen a couple of hundred go and come back in that month ppl forget its only the transfer window...more to come the next 10 months =D
