Do you have to have any football knowledge to make money on the index?

    If you had joined at the beginning of the year you could probably just metaphorically chuck darts at players to choose them and do alright. However some football knowledge will obviously be beneficial but even so theres plenty of tools to help even if your not a big football fan with stats providers like IndexGain.

    I tried this but it proved to be a bad decision as it resulted in me being banged up in Winson Green for 6 months with no means of being able to trade on my FI Account, but at least i can access the Forum.
    Next time ill be sure to remember to do it metaphorically

    Just thought I’d add the metaphorically in case anyone actually did it. Wouldn’t want to get done for inciting violence 😂

    True story...

    I spent the day on here looking at player graphs to spot patterns and published my research in the post below.

    As a result of looking at graphs alone... I was successfully able to predict that Fred was at his low point. He was recently 50% up in 4 months.

    So... No, you don't need football knowledge... just a day looking at graphs and a decent eye for pattern recognition. (Or luck...)

    My bet is a well trained bot could rinse the Index.

    Probably should have put enough money on the player to cover bail with his MB payouts.



  • @Dan-The-Man wow I read the forum link you posted Jeeeeesus that shit got real fast...in the aftermath..🤣



  • @Doug-s the thing is... Even now, Dan will take credit as if research and graph checking he knew Fred would rise.... When anyone normal would just put two and two together and come out with 4...he wasn't playing and it was summer and he had no transfer spec. Now he is playing... Mb has opened up and he has a single name on the index.

    Its simple but he'll wrap it up in waffle and sell it like only him and Einstein are on the wavelength.

    Its brilliant and the forum needs more Dan's. I havent enjoyed any threads as much as his.



  • The amazing thing is his time lines... Hes a magician. Like Lukaku in the time since that post has won pb, won mb x 3 and had a massive peak like 70p+ when he had the single game week leading into Belgium. Whereas Fred was flat as fuck till recently. So holding fred at that time was a poor trade... Buying in the day before mb opened up would have been a good trade. Buying Lukaku at time of his thread and using the internationals to sell would have been a good trade at the time.

    I did both, so maybe I'm biased.

    I could write a thread using horrorscope nonsense to predict that fabian ruiz will be £3+...at some point in the next few months i could bump that thread and say 'I told you so (or rather... The planet alignments foretold you so)'

    Ya damn right I'll take the credit. Didn't see your post saying "Hey everyone, Fred's at the bottom of his drop."

    I market sold out of Fred, 6 weeks later on a 15p per future profit BTW.

    Hardly the biggest win of my life but over 20% profit in 6 weeks... I'll take that. If Pogba went up £1.20 you'd be doing backflips... He's lost more than 20% since that thread. So it's like being 40% better off than you Pogba worshipers holders.



  • @Doug-s

    Yeah... Sadly... that's kinda how things go sometimes ha.

    It was a fun thread.



  • @Tom7471 In answer to your question, right now, no.

    Traders like Big Don literally own shares in near enough every player and there is logic to this. He picks up all divs every day on matchday and media and the money going into the market heavily outweighs the money going out. Therefore if you were to buy a share in every player, your success would be defined by the footie which has gone up, and up and up since the inception of FI.

    Could you put your money to better use and maximise profit. Yes. That's where the research element comes in.
