What odds of a birthday deposit bonus and/or a dividend increase when MB opens up to squad players



  • @Gregolocky medium risk... Not a massive spread, can't see him nosediving below 30-33p cos that was his price for a while and just based mb opening up.

    I'd say a 30% chance of a Jan move to PB team... Hasn't signed new contract yet and has talked about coming back, albeit jokingly. Could always be a short loan even if he does sign.

    The thing is... He doesn't need to move to double in price... He simply needs to be linked to utd or threaten mb once it opens up and you know he will get pumped to death and rocket.

    On financial terms... If he isn't linked at all and doesn't show in the MB list during dec/Jan then he would drop and I would IS for say 23p... A 10pps loss. Where the reward could be that he goes to 60/70p, who knows, somewhere like 30pps+ win.



  • @Vespasian32 @Ericali cheers guys, good insight into the reasoning of the trade 👍🏻



  • Eric (and others) always looking to burn their fellow traders now, those suckas who'll be buying Zlatan on the rise don't stand a chance. Why can't we all just get along and rake in the dividends on proven dividend returners like we used to 😥🤣



  • @NallyCat tbf we came up with same reason and expectations without any time to confer... This one, in my view is dividend driven. We know mb is opening up, we know ibra is one of the most talked about players in the world and we know he's out of contract in November and has already had some back and forth with Ole. It's a no brainer, there's cap ap for those getting in before 50p... Then at that price there's still really good mb yield potential which would drive cap ap, for those that prefer to wait it out and see it happen before buying in.

    I'm still all about the pogba tho! How many pogba you got now? When I'm ready to top up again il let you know and you can market list and give me a nice discount then unlist ☺ 😉



  • @Vespasian32 Haha I know mate I wasn't referring to you there being on Zlatan, I know you're on a lot of proven dividend players for the long haul, was said in jest.

    5000 Pogba, think I've finally gone in to red on him today (not counting dividends won), ah well I can handle seeing a player in the red.



  • Are people expecting an announcement regarding their birthday at all then, if they didn’t announce one today which was expected?



  • @Andy Birthday is actually 2nd October apparently and it was just announced early last year. Anyway, I wouldn’t be surprised if FI just ignore sending out birthday messages anymore as perhaps they’ve decided they’re fed up with traders’ behaviour.



  • Has it really come to ibra being the man haha



  • @NallyCat is that how many you have, 5,000?



  • @TeamGB they have been quiet recently. No more trader meets announced for ages as well. Maybe something is up.



  • @Hotspur
    They are working with Nasdaq now and that changes EVERYTHING.

    No longer are they the small innovators with a start-up, sharing with their customers.
    They will now be bound by the rules of big business. They will likely be desperate to talk to us but be prevented through NDA's etc.



  • @MrWh1te That’s a very good point sir. I don’t even understand why anyone should be at this stage questionning whether something is up. As I’m sure you know, FI are spending huge amounts on advertising and I think you are right, they would love to tell us more from behind the scenes but just can’t do so due to the sensitive nature of the business going on right now. I’m excited for the future of FI. How do you feel about the coming few years?



  • @TeamGB I feel it has a good few years of expansion yet.

    I think what we are seeing now (and have seen before) is what FI will be like when the market is flooded and it becomes a more traditional gambling site rather than the pyramid thing we are seeing with big profits now.

    They will be working with Nasdaq behind the scenes to get the tech absolutely perfect and I also think they will release into new countries but only once the new tech is up and running.

    I am not in the least bit concerned at how FI is now, it is just a correction.

    I also think most of the fear is being driven by older investors who are used to big profits and not liking having to work for their money :p



  • @TeamGB
    But then don't listen to me, as @Vespasian32 says, I have never and will never talk sense.

    I think its the opposite, new investors excepting big profits immediately. Older investors are quite happy to tick along earning 20-30% a year.
    Not every old investor made huge gains, waters were very very choppy even only 18months ago. There is always a drama with FI!.



  • @Tom77 To clarify, by older I mean 6-8 months minimum, not the early day investors.

    Players like me for instance, started in Jan, I now consider myself an 'older investor' in that I have seen peaks, dips and cycles.

    I think what we are seeing now is a huge influx of new investors. With new investors we always seem to see them go through a transition where they chase quick profits (like a traditional gambler would) which is happening now, and this will even out once they start to understand FI more.

    I think it is compounded by older investors in 2 ways.

    1. Trying to take advantage of the new guys, for instance buying players 2 or 3 weeks in advance and selling up on game day when the players get all the natural rises (this has always happened, think Monday sell off) but now it is worse and we are seeing it mid-game) and
    2. Older investors panic'ing at this trend and pulling money out of the top guys (as well as those pulling out because no div increase).

    I also think we are seeing quite a lot of people pulling out own money and playing with just profits (which is something I want to do but not at this point, the market is too low for me).

    It is a perfect storm atm and I think FI are doing the right thing by letting the market correct itself. I have faith they will raise divs when the business time is right.

    Our profits don't count on other investors long term (they do, we need others to lose for us to win) but they DO count on FI getting the business right, or else we all lose everything.



  • I started in 2017. I think it's time to remove all my original stake and adapt to the new age playing with the profit. I was a long term holder of large quantities of top 20 players and whilst i made 10k in August i've lost 5k subsequent to the trading methods in September.

    I've seen Pogba come and go and got out with @Ericali around the 8 pound mark. I now see Kai Havertz taking a shoeing which i always considered a safe hold based on his future. I think this old dog needs some new tricks!



  • @Ellisandro what's your exit plan... Wait for market sell or big bang? When you withdraw your warchest you become another potential pogba buyer just waiting for his new contract ☺ good luck



  • I think every platform adapts and where as say 2 years ago someone with a 250k port was probably a significant part of the overall index, 250k now is probably short change compared to the total invested so the "big investors" have less sway now.

    I joined in Nov 18 and the footie was around 44k if I remember rightly. It's now almost triple that. I expect the footie will reach 200k in the next 6-8 months.

    Whilst it does seem to have taken a fantasy football type element, good investments will still grow. Young players still appear to be king if you want big cap app. Look at Haland in this last week or 2. People probably initially bought into Haland as a long term hold expecting a big move one day...now his price has rocketed those people have a decision...do you sell now and take a significant profit...or do you stick to the long game on Haland. The hype on him will die down when Salzburg are out of Europe but that big move may still happen...so do you stick or twist?

    I bought Oshimen just before the season started as I expected him to play and he would be in Europe. He got off to a flyer and now I'm +90% on him. So I have a decision to make on him.



  • @Ellisandro Havertz tentatively linked with Man U this morning. Pretty sure Bayern will be his next destination though.
    I hold a few hundred myself and will be holding till next summer at least with the Euros and potential transfer ahead.
    In fairness though he’s started the season pretty poorly so the drop isn’t unexpected.
