Port (bleeding badly)



  • @Tom77 👍, I like it when I see someone buy a shit load of expensive players, and think hopefully that be me one day .



  • Much like @Martyn-B I have read this thread day after day as it updates, without posting, quietly thinking to myself "thank fuck it's not just my portfolio that is decreasing" (no offence guys).

    The fact soo many of us are experiencing the same thing is strangely re-assuring. I know, it's shit to be "losing money" but I bet 95% of people posting in this thread are sitting with fat profit margins so the term "losing money" shouldn't really apply. I also appreciate the point about "had I sold up last month I'd be sitting 5% better off". That's the nature of gambling though. The risk of "is that enough" doesn't just apply to individual players, but also your entire portfolio.

    I'm 9 months+ into my FI journey and this September-long "downturn" has been the longest sustained dip during my entire time here. That said, I am still sitting at 45%+ profit, which is simply staggering for just 9 months. Show me somewhere else I/we can make that sort of return and I'll be all ears.

    I don't have any answers for when things will improve, nor do I really understand what is going on other than bubbles in portions of the market I have absolutely 0 interest in risking my money in.

    I guess I just wanted to add my name to the list of confused, but patient and optimistic forum users.



  • @LukeMalla wish I could say I had a large profit to start with. Mine has disappeared now. I'm now losing my investment but its a gambling platform so my stupid fault really



  • @AndydfopT this thing ain't dead yet, there will be a rise coming, so wouldn't worry at all this season, you will have chances to cash out in profit I reckon. Just depends what rise it is for the long term future.



  • @AndydfopT what players you got mate? My port profits are quickly vanishing



  • @LukeMalla all you are proving is that those that got on earlier enough are sitting of fat profit. Those that have got in last 4-5 months would, on average, be sitting on far far less. That is not how a sustainable platform operates. That's a Ponzi scheme. Fi need to recognise the market has doubled and loosen their purse strings and increase dividends to recognise this. Right now there is so little value for new traders. The only option they have is to take a punt on a cheap player which has pretty low percentage of working out. The dividend return for new investors on current prices is pretty pitiful



  • @Collymore10 Rashford, T Hazard, Griezman, Odengaard, C Pulisic, Hudson odoi are my main players. Got a few youth, tuanzebe, i hagi, Bongonda..... A few Villa players as I support them which are actually in the green. Pedro Guilherme, Maxi Gomez, Hirving Lozano pretty much makes my 3000 port up



  • Just remember the huge growth in August. It’s been tough for lots of people, just be patient, wait until December and then re evaluate your ports. Don’t get sucked in to panic selling



  • I completely understand people stressing about it but the facts are the lower priced players are performing and look exciting and easier to make money off right now. Ive got small priced players and big priced players and I'm almost ignoring the negative numbers because I'm still making money elsewhere and withdrawing. Yes each time I sell a player in profit it's hard to look at but this is whole point of a diverse portfolio. Keep your bigger players because consistently over the season they will get you divs and especially once a div increase is announced which we all know will happen they will rise or at least I expect them too. Weve also got the euros next year too and when the latter stages of champions league and Europa come around you expect the "bigger priced players" to be in these competitions.
    It's also worth noting the new matrix has spiced things up and we have to get used to it because your seeing players win divs that might not of before or suddenly look very attractive.
    FI changed my whole view on gambling and that didn't happen in 6 weeks it took time, this platform is still new and will be around for years. I also feel it's the safest way to gamble and like others have said your port might show a loss but you only lose money if you sell. Be patient it's been said many a time and will continue to be said for years to come



  • One thing that has been said a million times: Having a diverse port is crucial to riding out downturns. Half my 30 man port is in the red, but the other half (mostly under £2) are in the green. The exception to this is Greenwood, De Bruyne, Odgaard, Maddison, Sancho and CHO.



  • Anyone else hoping for a midnight birthday announcement? 😂



  • @TeamGB midnight now anything happened dont think so



  • @Jdog 25% deposit bonus and increase in MB and PB dividends. Oh, sorry then I woke up...



  • @TeamGB that would break the platform mate not a good idea

    Yes that's always been my mantra. But I have 116 players from every spectrum imaginable, and every cycle I've ridden well, but this one I've been brutally hit. I can't work it out.



  • @kristiang85 honestly the footsie could halve in a single day and some people would still point out their superior strategy and that they are up on it because of it. Particularly pertinent this week. Reality is that nearly all of us with diverse portfolios are leaking like fuck this week, not just those with big hitters.

    That's a worry if you have been savaged with that range of players. It might be one of our £1m traders have exited: https://forums.footballindex.co.uk/topic/12635/fi-on-wikipedia/7



  • Ive always thought a diverse portfolio might protect me from the drops as well but im down 1.36% this week. At the start of the season my big dividend hitters were fairly static but my cheap players flew (and sterling + sancho). Now my cheap players have stopped growing and the premium players are in freefall, especially salah.

    I am down over a percent this week with 130 players spread equally over the 5 PB leagues and another 20 or so non PB players some with European football so it is as low risk as you can get. However, if I look at the 7 weeks since beginning of August I am well up so I am not worried. If I went to my IFA and complained about my fund performance based on the last 3 weeks he would tell me to stop being so silly.

    13,500 futures were listed or sold on Fekir last night straight after the game so that is £27,000 just on 1 player.

    The FOOTIE was stagnant yesterday so no massive drop so either they are in the queue or the amount was reinvested. If it is the latter I would love to know where as I am not seeing it.

    Once the uncertainty about what or if there is an announcement is over plus people start getting paid there will be a bounce back.
