Best time to buy?



  • What’s the best time to buy at?

    Say a player has had a bad game on a Saturday. Would you say Tuesday would be when a players value is then the best to buy at before a game then on the following Saturday?

    I have a long term strategy and was thinking is it best to just hold my long termers or try and flip on a Saturday night by selling and then buy back later in the week?

    Or would commission kill me long term trying this method?



  • @Rob Can you look at any player and work out straight away what the % spread is? That's what you lose if you IS, plus the 2% of course. Multiply your sell price by 0.95 to see whether you're up or down on a 3% spread +2c. On an 8% spread +2c, multiply by 0.9, and so on. One minus 0.1 for every %.



  • Players I want long term I just hold through the ups and downs, don’t see the point of the hassle and cost of selling to just rebuy again.

    Short term is a bit more guess who everyone is gonna pile on next before they do.



  • @Rob depends on strategy but transfer spec January so some good buys out there at the moment

    Not sure about flipping but regardless monday or tuesday after a low score is a decent entey point.
