Port (bleeding badly)

  • So I’ve been here 5 weeks and my plan all a long was to slowly build up a port of lower players (adding £100 a month after my initial £400 investment) whilst I generated enough cash to buy the likes of Pogba; who was around £7.10 when I joined.

    Had a sub £500 port which was doing ok for 5 weeks, and despite the doom and gloom I’ve been reading daily on these forums I still see value in the product; and if you consider this platform to be for trading then there will always be peaks and troughs.

    However with the current drop I’ve decided to take the gamble (who’d have thought it on a gambling website) and dropped 1k on him this morning; if in 12 months he’s dropped lower than midget limbo dancer I’ll be a few hundred quid out of pocket and learnt my lesson. But the other side of the coin.....

    I’ll add I’ve never been a gambler never spent a penny on betting on football but I know the pit falls so I’ve only used what I can afford the wife not to find out about.

  • @Alpilgrim Well said , people here need to wind their necks in and basically take the rough with the smooth . A lot of this talk is reiterated by the hour and is getting more than repetitive . I started in August 2018 and like most other FI users did all the mistakes early doors ..... i.e overtrading , selling when red etc ...... It is more than likely what is happening a lot at present, and probably contributing to this panic set and volatility . I seem to remember a spell like this on the latter end of 2018 and then hey presto it resolved itself . So being patient and sitting tight worked before .....

  • @GI I started last October and the market was largely dead right through until the new year.
    But, it should be remembered that yields on prices then were significantly more attractive.

  • What's going on with sancho? 7-8p in minutes? Been on newsnow and theres nowt negative, just stories about him being Dortmund MVP

  • @MickTurbo KDB has also dropped almost 8p today with no news other than some articles about how he is going to break records. I am guessing it is just a couple of very large investors removing their money!

  • @Sill7 not sure about withdrawing... seems at the minute everyone is live by the sword, die by the sword. Historically - a tonne of new users join and their first question is 'why is kdb so cheap' and the answer is … 0 mb prospects and doesn't win that much pb

    he won some pb and has been scoring goals … so his price rocket. This weekend despite a goal and 2 assists he didn't win pb so is dropping. and people already seeing the rotation pep is using with kdb benched in the previous match and sterling benched in this match. even with sane out its a big midfield/attack to juggle.

    Sancho has also been amongst the goals and not winning pb - and hes also had a meteoric rise since start of season - the prick overtook Neymar at one point, that was always going to be a mantle he couldn't carry.

    not saying I agree with the current behaviour - just the way I see it.

  • I don't normally add weight to twitter, but this comment on there sums it up for me

    If you hold for 3 years, one week is 0.6% of the lifetime of your bet. Cashing out on a one week dip would be the same as cashing out a single game win bet after 40 seconds of the game because the other team has the ball.

  • So few people had the same view as myself Pogba up 6p since the £6.26 I got him for at 9am; is this the start of an upturn or just me being positive?

  • @Moukoko I like that analogy - makes the panic selling even more difficult to understands.

    You have potentially another 150+ rolls of the dice over 3 years - people seem to be selling after the first one doesn't go their way.

  • @Sav2000 lots of people trying to identify when Pogba has bottomed out. Lots of money to be made if time it right. But only time will tell if this is the comeback.

  • @Sav2000 IMO even though market is unpredictable Pog is at his ‘low’

    Back from injury for Arsenal
    I’ve dipped in ...just waiting for ‘big fish’ to ‘dabble’ n I’m having more 😉

  • Pog had a bit of a false dawn about 10 days ago I think but I said this morning he cant be far from the bottom.

    Hes due back from injury, straight into a huge fixture and the team have been absolutely shite without him. If this was virtually any other player on the index, ok maybe not the absolute dead wood at the very bottom end, and theyd rose 6p today I dont think ppl would have any hesitation in saying hes on his way back to his peak price.

    I'm not quite saying that but for the first time in what feels like a long time, it feels like theres cause for optimism with pog.

    This isnt me falling back in love with the index though, I mean what the fucks going on
    with sancho and VVD? Were still in very choppy waters

  • @MickTurbo I keep looking at Pogba at £6.32 and thinking shit or bust. Over exposed as it is but £6.32. Tempting me like a Doner kebab at 2am after drinking 10 pints.

  • @LittleFish I'm sure most of us are thinking that mate. Theres a chance £6.32 will seem a very long time ago in not an awfully long time from now but if the last month has taught me anything it's the old adage about assumptions applies here

  • @MickTurbo I see a few buys today. 100 here, 200 there. Just one bit of positive news could set it off.

  • @LittleFish You can get 50% off the merch, how much more positive news do you want!

  • @MickTurbo said in Port (bleeding badly):

    Surely single match days need to be treble media days? That's before the conversation about a general raise in divs even begins.

    I'm looking nailed on for 2nd and 3rd place 🤬🤬

  • @MrWh1te Saints giving the fish fondlers a thrashing would be a start 🐟

  • @LittleFish Won't happen, you scum going dahn!!

  • Resurrecting this thread as my port is now down 0.08% in the last 24 hours. Does anyone think it's time to start panicking again?
