Which Factors Drive Player Price Changes on Football Index? Who to buy for next season?
I’ve written a blog for Index Edge analysing which factors drive price change on football index: https://bit.ly/fipricechanges?via=ben
Analyses of the groups of players who have had the greatest % price changes this season
For 3316 players included
It’s just a free 5min read and I hope it could be very useful for you.
Here's an extract:
It is pretty clear that players in the top 4 teams of each league have been subject to a much larger rise than players everywhere else. Most likely very much related to @FI_Kbrown’s data showing that these players also win far more dividends. (see blog for moore info).
Germany, out of nowhere, completely dominating the graphs even though it is actually one of the nations with the most players on FI. Portugal and Holland may be so high due to a lower number of players. England and France, surprisingly low – mostly due to having a lot more players on the Index.

Question to ask yourself: Are your returns this season greater than the top category in each factor? If the answer is no, is it time to change strategy?

Capital appreciation is clearly very negatively related to age. The younger player, the greater the % price growth this year....what do you make of that? Lots of caveats and confounding factors, but it looks pretty clear.
Very interesting article. Thanks for sharing. A lot of it you subconsciously know, but it’s fascinating seeing the cold hard stats to back it up 👍🏻
@Valhalla Cheers mate! was particularly surprised about how low the Prem rises were.. and how strongly correlated the rises are i relation to youth
been doing analysis like this and on player stats in depth for the lat year on twitter - but finally made the move to expand a bit on the forum! I find there's less engagement though so far, any tips to increase user engagement?
Very helpful, cheers!
@FIBENman I think if ppl believe you are trying to sell a product, they may switch off. But this article is actually very interesting, and absolutely something every newcomer to FI should be reading. And when you start a thread, maybe keep it to one post and not multiple posts all in a row. Then it looks like your Billy no mates, chatting with yourself and definitely trying to flog something 😄
@Valhalla hahaha cheers for that mate. Literally been on forum for a couple weeks so don't have a clue. I thought of it more as a thread like on twitter, but I guess not!
@FIBENman yes, it can be a pretty long post. But try and keep it to one. Also looks neater. Good luck 👍🏻
@NorthBankGooner cheers! glad you found it useful. If you have any suggestions let me know?
I'm rather new to it so gathering all the information I can.
Can't fault it, is there anything else available?
@NorthBankGooner Do you use twitter mate? I do a lot of analysis, with other big data guys in the community but most of my work is on twitter. Recently joined forum for fun
I will set one up again but it's get a bit much with everything else I'm on.
What's your name on there?

I'm a manual worker, I sweat at the sight of a computer, bar charts, stats etc...
But luckily for me on lockdown I've got plenty of time to adapt and learn.
The stuff you've posted is an eye opener.
I will say that the Index edge site you've got this from, has a much clearer and easier to use site than Index gain. -'The free to use part'.
(Not sure what you get once a member of index gain obviously it's free and basic but works).
For me personally colours jump out more than just black and white.
If I can get my port out of red into the green using the free tools, I'll definitely be looking to joining up.
Thanks for taking the time to post it 🍻
@Doug-s really great to hear that. Index Edge is definitely far more useful than Index Gain and a lot cheaper so its an easy decision I think! Im sure you be out of the red when football returns mate, all the best though! I do lots more content on twitter if you are interested give me a follow.
