Gambling too much?
Dr Jan Itor
@Alpilgrim absolutely there would be. I agree. But in the last 24 hours he has called others greedy, unable to read stats, and questioned their personal finances. I don't blame him for tying to calm down the market, but stop insulting other people intelligence and debate the points themselves
@Dr-Jan-Itor Which are all valid points.
Lots of people here are used to big profits and moaning when you lose 1% after winning 60% can be greed.
There are people who not reading stats properly (a huge percentage most likely) and looking at this wrong.
And there are people who over-stretched.
All posts which got plenty of upvotes and all were thought out and explained why.

In fairness... I've spent more gambling on here than I have ever spent elsewhere.
It's a bit daft too. I mean... We're basically betting big in hopes of 10-40% returns... Wouldn't ever dream of betting £1,000 on Liverpool to beat Oldham Athletic, even though it's a lock, but wouldn't think twice about betting £1,000 on Moutinho growing in value as Wolves turn the corner.
I think what's really happening is... a lot of us are still figuring out the implications of a new season, with all the new transfers, injuries, retirements and we're feeling the impact of dividends being lowered too. Not to mention the unexpected spanner in the works like, who would have predicted that they would be 2nd from bottom at this point?
@Dr-Jan-Itor Fuck off and dont read my posts then, this cartel thing is getting boring now.
Andy m is that you???
@Ringers you cheeky bugger!
I think a lot of people have enjoyed a lot of growth over time (steady cap app and divs) and are now looking at a market which has been completely turned on its head with IPDs and an influx of short-term flippers joining the platform - and they're leaving as they can't understand what is going on and they're worried they won't be able to keep up if it continues to dominate the market.
Money has moved from dividend returners to youth and cheaper players and a lot of traders are probably hoping to sell up and wait until all of this has blown over (either dividend-returning player prices bottom out OR FI increase divs to outweigh the appeal of IPDs and flipping).
Just my opinion of the current situation...
@MrWh1te I would imagine that if FI think large sums of money are leaving the platform they will put things in place to turn that round. We are still at a very early stage in my eyes and I dont see Adam Cole wanting any negativity creeping in.
Whether the remedy will be a dividend increase I don't know but I just dont believe that will want to keep offering another bonus or another dividend increase every time the market slows down.
@Stevo I genuinely hope they don't. They can't keep artificially boosting the market.
The big players commanding a big price per future aren't performing full stop!!!
People need to stop blaming new users, ipds,etc the drops are because me and others don't want to buy into a lame horse that isn't going to win a race simple as that..
People who have bought into them are blatantly pulling out before others realise, so they get maximum benefits other holders need to get into a lifeboat before the ship goes down.
When pogba and neymar etc can be bothered and post decent scores hold tight and jump on.
Personally not invested huge sums in FI as bottom line - its new and gambling at the end of the day. I am happy with my returns as joined around 18 months ago. You need to decide when to extract and then do so. I reinvest in P2P which I realise has its own risks but offer another 7 per cent on money obtained from a gambling platform. IMHO spread the risk across loads of players.
