How can everyone make money?



  • I've been on the index a few months now and made around £200.
    But I see lots of people making £1000's....

    I'm really struggling to see how this is sustainable?

    FI need to make money too.

    Someone has to lose?

    In regular betting it's clear that the majority lose and that's the business model but all I hear on FI is people making money.... surely lots are losing?



  • 2% commission pal



  • Lol at the 2% commission answer. The answer to your question is that the Index is growing, more money is being pumped in.



  • Instant sell is a minimum of 4% upwards on comition. Players are flipped 100s of times a day.



  • @NewUser99665 while an ever growing number of users are joining the platform everyone can make money. Once new users start to decline it's up to FI to work out how best to make sure platform works for them



  • @Noirx4
    Yep exactly. Traders might lose out on one individual trade (eg. where they buy a rising player too late, get flipped, and are left holding in the red). But on aggregate, there's so much new money coming in that virtually all portfolios are effectively green (although of course we all need to remember our portfolios are worth at least 2% less than the number displayed).

    At the moment, we lucky few are effectively just taking up positions until the market reaches an equilibrium and the dividends / returns on offer dont justify people pumping in more money. Then it becomes less of a "rising tide lifts all boats" scenario and becomes win-lose, where people will start to lose money overall if they make bad trades, and profits will be made only because of those losses,. But we're years away from this;I think average returns must be over 100% ROI per annum at the moment and it will be when we approach circa 5-10% that it makes less sense to invest new money. And then FI will always have the option of increasing dividends as they have before to get the market moving again and encourage new money.

    We're all really very lucky to have discovered this amazing platform whilst it's still in phenomenal growth form and an eventual ROI is guaranteed on almost every player.



  • @playingcards1 thanks - good read!! feels like still early days to make good money so best stay in for now and get out before everyone else does!!



  • Firstly very few are winning has it costs money to own a portfolio and unless you was here at the start or have a warchest full of Neymar the chances of you being in the top 10% whos withdrawals are more than there portfolios and investments are are quite slim. There’s a huge number of small investors with under 1k portfolios again the money’s tied in. I have flipped too much otherwise I’d be on a 5k profit where has I ain’t even made 1k and I’ve lost with my timing on some players. Rooney being a great example I bought him at 1-19 sold him then he scores a hat trick and all hell breaks lose so buy him back wrong but luckily sell him at a fair price now he’s very low .. with Tosun again I bought him low managed to sell him high but he’s gone down since there will be people who have bought sold at wrong times and don’t give a Xxxx if there winning or losing has long has there portfolios are in green and disregard bad trades we talking people who are on crazy money from every day jobs and this is there relaxation there’s also “candy shop investors” the ones who join and build a portfolio based on there clubs which is lucky if you support Watford for example because you have a portfolio of CHALOBAH and Richarlsons! But not so great if you support a club that’s struggling. If People drew down there portfolios they have to buy back dearer and lets face it FI addiction is like a drug or smoking drinking or other vice or even the lottery you need to be in it to win it. A famous person once said best term to hold shares is forever and there’s a solid base of investors here. More joining than who are leaving and the ones that leave and sell just has quick people buy back the sold shares. Not everyone knows of FI and there’s a World Cup coming up so still good time to invest. Can’t go up for ever but for now it’s going great. Only invest what you are happy to lose and for investors with small portfolios the pleasure should out weigh the risk. Bigger investors are used to taking risks. Any profit in a portfolio Is a risk has once you win if you don’t withdrewl it’s a chance of losing... and till you cash out full your neither won or lost your just in the game/gamble.... also remember the longer the platform lasts the more of a business this is to sell on and if it was took up for example by Corel for example you’d see a huge gain for all involved overnight ... many sa arias but even with profit in a portfolio which is less than I’ve invested but more than I’ve put in I don’t see myself of many others a winner just a trader



  • As Chicken says FI addiction is the real winner here....

    I only put a small amount down each month but that money since last year has been sitting in the bank of Adam and not my own.... No one's taking money out here, we are all leaving it in, flipping, trading, growing and whilst we are all doing that those at FI are making on interest and the 2% transactions of which i'm sure there are hundreds or maybe thousands a day...

    Like many I have no intention of taking anything out (until a rainy day) so my portfolio based on growth in value is one of many that is reliable to the game makers (probably the sort they want)... I'm sure those who have thrown even less money at it than I have (and there will be thousands) have all got bored and cashed out because you have to back big to make small margins which isn't that exciting for beginners especially those of a betting back ground? I admit when I started trading I thought a number of times of cashing out with that £10 profit but the more I play the more I want to invest and the more I become addicted which means I don't think i'll be taking any of my cash back out of Adam's pocket quite yet??

    I joined with £40 then added £1k then went upto 4.6k I drew down to £1k now at £2.2k people who know me know that I can be a moaner and only reason I’m not investing over £5k is my Neymar thiory which I have covered before and not going to go into here.

    Realisticly to profit an amount that’s noticeable each week you need to sink 5k in at least and then aim to win on game days and unless you have media players see a dive in investment after match days and up just before match days. My aim is I’d be delighted to get all out I’ve invested and have a 10k portfolio I’ve no interest in winning money but a huge free portfolio would be nice... Adams abit like the Robin Hood of the Gambling industry in the fact FI takes from the bookies and casinos and traditional betting and reinvests in a stock come gamble portfolio format on here I’m sure I’m not the only trader to see my traditional gambling investments drop in a healthy way. I really think if people are flippers or investors these a soppy love-in with FI and if there was the first few that joined cash in there portfolios and damage the platform it not be long before there actions would send themselves cold turkey on FI addiction I’d like to think the original investors are the pillows of the community and have good jobs other than here and like me and Danny have pride in our portfolios has let’s face it our invisible footballers are our pride and joy has bizarre has it may seem to some... I joined with the intent to win now I love the game and it’s part of my life
