Weekend sell off?



  • Hi all, 1 week in and going ok but a fair drop in portfolio profits today after the weekend games. Is this the usual scenario after weekend matches? Is it a case of don't panic as people cash in their profits and I should expect the ship to steady in the next few days?



  • @Buyandsell-Tel

    In a word...yes!



  • @Buyandsell-Tel
    Yep until Monday evening
    Short term traders, end of People‘a IPDs and others taking profits.

    If you believe in your buys just ride the red they always bounce back



  • Thanks for the reassuring replies. I have a fairly balanced portfolio and have confidence in the long term prospects. Learning fast.



  • Quite normal weekly dips.

    If extended, it could be people trying to predict some sort of bonus / offer related to the 12 rockets tweet.
    Around any whiff of a deposit bonus there is usually a market dip as people get money out to put back in.



  • We have a Champions League and Europa week ahead so the drops won’t last. I find my biggest gains are in European weeks as most of the big players perform as there is less chance of “penny stock” randoms taking home the divs.



  • Priceless info for a newbie guys. Started trading with the international fixtures, just had first taste of league action & now looking forward to the Champions League & Europa League fixtures. Any special tips for Euro cup trading would be welcome



  • @Buyandsell-Tel yeah it’s my first league weekend and portfolio has dipped a bit after players have played but still in the green just surprised by some falling, confident they will gain again as most I have are playing midweek



  • @Buyandsell-Tel buy players that look like they may have a long run in Europe as once teams are out you’ll see some drastic falls. Only problem with buying said players is they tend to be premium players.
    Have a look at teams likely to drop into the Europa league from the champions league as they could go deep in the competition 👍🏻

    Heres an example of how I think things will work this week, based on 1 player who I have just bought into.

    Take the tip or dont, you dont have to buy the player, but take the insight.

    Club brugge play galatasaray on tuesday. A win will guarantee them a place in the europa cup, notwithstanding the tiny possibility that they could actually mathematically finish 2nd in the group still and progress in the CL.

    Either way, a win on Tuesday guarantees continued european football for club brugge. Hans vanaken is currently 51p. And would undoubtedly be a lot higher if he played in a PB league. Therefore a prolonged stay in a PB competition will very probably be good for his stock.

    Add to that the fact that people will be looking ahead to the january transfer window, and being a player in a non PB division who could undoubtedly play at a higher level, and hes somebody who people will buy in the Hope's that a PB move happens.

    If brugge win wednesday I predict maybe a 10% rise, significantly more if he gets 1 or more IPD's. I predict a further rise as we approach january.

    Of course the gamble is that brugge get beat. Well if they do hes likely to have a small dip but will still be higher in price a month from now than he is today



  • Tonight is probably the optimum time to buy into your champions league / Europa league players for the week, whilst they are at their low points



  • @MickTurbo Valuable insight into factors to look for. Keeping my powder dry until I do some analysis tomorrow but you have already added more depth to the way I will search out trades.



  • @Buyandsell-Tel you'll find your own way but theres always an opportunity just round the corner, it just takes a bit of experience of the market to see it, and the example I gave is just the most recent one I've spotted.

    It's not a guarantee of quick money though, they could get beat, he could get injured, but most of the time I make money on things like this



  • Would it be fair to say that with a Non Euro Comps week that prices bounce back by monday evening but when it is a Euro Comps week prices tend to rise sooner?



  • @Buyandsell-Tel drops continue on Monday then a slow rise to the weekend normally



  • @MickTurbo The only problem with Vanaken is that he seems happy with his lot in Belgium.
    Prolonged euro action might help maintain or increase his price but a move in Jan🤔



  • @Gazz127 as is said time and again, the move doesnt have to happen



  • Although relatively minor loses I am surprised the likes of TAA, Depay, Werner, Sabitzer and Pjanic are decreasing with CL matches just a couple of days away.

    Then again some of these have risen big time and everyone has to take profits for one reason or another,that I understand.

    Just to me the timing is a tad baffling with potential big gains to be had this week.



  • My portfolio is geared for PB and MB. Since the week of "shit the bed" I haven't experienced much of a Sunday sell off. Today I have so I would guess there is a different dynamic this weekend than previous weeks.

    Plus how can this be? Jones messes up my MB win after messing up for Manu today. Don't think Scott Mc is worried about getting his place back.
