Port dropping?



  • Is it just me or is your port value dropping too? Hasn’t been a great few days lol. No panic obvs just asking out of curiosity



  • Yes. 5% deposit bonus wiped out already. Hopefully good times coming though.



  • A little over the last 48hrs say but still up overall compared to this time last week.
    I'm not holding much in terms of transfer players and that is where the money is going, 20% rise for united links mainly!
    PB players dropping off this month but will rise again when the leagues restart and we get towards european knockout games.



  • Mine took a bit of a drop generally and also made worse by Malens injury news but it was to be expected after the bonus periods finished.

    though i am surprised that they haven't done another try January especially when i saw an massage from @DANFI which seemed to allude to it.

    In a typical month, the first 2 weeks are usually the quietest and then it picks up in the second half of the month



  • @dp01 yep I’m slightly down not much less then half a percent but down none the less.
    My first Jan on F1 and was expecting slightly better but I suppose come the weekend when all the leagues properly back and transfers happening rather than being speculated on things will push on .



  • Past 3-4 days port has been bleeding a few quid a day which obviously not great to see.
    Transfer linked players getting bulk of the money but it is a dangerous game where you can win but also loose big.

    Sooner all the leagues are up and running the better but not the greatest start to the year I have to admit.

    A couple of weeks down the line and it should start to look a lot rosier with money hopefully returning to pb players.
    I'm guessing that should be happening soon as many like to be ahead of the curve.



  • Mine has been great and consistently growing at an accelerated rate until probably 5pm yesterday. Since then it's marginally dropped. Monday sell off though, happens every week.

    Do we need a thread every time a portfolio dips for a day or 2?



  • Are there any deposit bonuses currently running?

    Regular as clockwork, these threads. As soon as we have a couple of days without growth. I genuinely think most people on the Index expect the market to constantly increase.

    We had obscene levels of growth towards the end of December, but that will soon be forgotten. Waiting for the first “thinking of withdrawing” thread, that’s usually not far behind.



  • I think a lot of people got drawn into the massive hype that a ‘Try January’ would be happening and the market would boom by 10-20% like last year.



  • Yes only just up since Xmas day, not much premier lge football now though hope end Jan money back in and return of European football kicks market back into action



  • No idea what my port is doing as set myself a new years resolution to not check my account till February the 1st.

    Do I think it will be higher on 1st Feb than it was on 31st December? 100% CONFIDENT

    Yesterday, my all time profit went into the red for the 1st time for a few months. I think people are taking out their deposit for the 5% bonus. I'm in the process myself of market selling to take back the deposit. On the plus side, half my 28-man port is in the green.



  • Yeah I've been dropping but the footie has been rising. Which is never nice to see.

    If you look at the risers though it's mainly budget shite doing well. Decent players seem to be suffering. Should just be a bit of a short term trend.

    I am having to reassess how I expected the market to perform though. Based on the price graphs for last year I was expecting a bit of a peak for PB players in February. If there's no try January then it appears that won't be happening this year.

    Whilst I appreciate that these threads can be tedious and frustrating for those that have been here for over a year, please accept that others on the platform will not have the experience that hindsight brings.

    I am almost certain that the first time your portfolio experienced a prolonged dip, you shat your pants and thought the world was about to end.

    You probably came onto the forum seeking reassurances that you weren't going to be left bankrupt.

    That is exactly what the OP is doing. Cut him/her a little slack. We have all been there! 👍



  • @johnboywalker Here here! Well said!!!



  • @johnboywalker Very true and we will all go through this again and again.
    Sometimes it is good to know your not the only one going through it and to hear reassurances from others can help no end.



  • @Allams-Out There are decent rises to be had but its mainly based on transfer rumours.
    In a couple of weeks people will be back to buying PB players for the end of season and Euros push.



  • The constant berating of premium holds on here and other platforms does no good what so ever for market confidence. What new people to the platform must think when they see the ticker tape on televised matches showing the prices of Messi, Pogba and Kane and then come on here and see them described a sucker purchases I despair to think.



  • @Coleyscrooge
    Hahaha
    Wow so true on many levels
    Maybe the people who moan most are new users who haven’t experienced massive gains as 2 year plus holders
