  • @NewUser210183 said in New trader opening port:

    Hi, new trader here. I’ve deposited about £280 and this is how I’ve spent it:

    3x Pogba
    2x Neymar
    4x Kimmich
    2x Messi
    2x Salah
    4x Kroos
    2x Ronaldo
    3x Alcantara
    3x Thorgan Hazard
    3x Werner
    2x Havertz

    What do you think? Is it any good, or would there be a better way of starting out?

    Appreciate any suggestions.

    Wish my first portfolio was as good as that!

    Pretty solid base and some really good picks in there

    Smug git...you've nailed it. Well done.



  • good picks, well balanced...

    This time next year Rodders.....

    Solid start!!



  • rock solid, someone's done their homework



  • First newbie that hasn't posted poor or mixed picks. Well done.



  • Nice. I own a few of those and I'd own them all if I had the funds going spare.



  • You’ve beaten the urge to buy lots of futures in lesser players. Well done. That was my biggest failing and it took me some months to get over it.

    Smaller numbers in better performers is key.
    Once you get the ‘game’ start looking at those underpriced gems!



  • Cheers, guys, for all your reassuring comments. Just got to have patience now and build my little pot of dividends.



  • @NewUser210183

    patience is key in this game, solid picks and dividends will help you through the leaner times. keep the faith, lots to learn whilst things tick over.



  • @NewUser210183 some may disagree but I'd have a couple more defenders other than kimmich to give u a chance of winning defender pb pos overall including the growth of that player. Just what I do not gonna pimp any but just a thought got a lot of urs nice1!



  • you can't cover everything with a port that size. Kimmich has better chance of any defender to win PB. It's a good mix, some PB faves, some both MB and PB. some younger/transfer speculation.



  • Add a zero on each of your picks & you would have made a good start.

    Not going to do anything with just 2-3 futures.

    Not critical of the portfolio - it's good 👍 but what you going to do with this little investment.

    Nothing wrong with your reasoning, so back your judgement - have a pair of balls. 👌

    Crap advice with all due respect sire
    Its prudent to start off small and get a feel of the ropes
    E.G I was reading a twitter from someone earlier who has just gone over £100k who started off with £100

    I myself only started of with £50 - 5 months ago.......

    Not crap advice Sir - sound advice. 👌

    I was acknowledging the man had done his homework & had picked the correct players.

    He needs to invest more - and mark my words, will do, when he sees the profit of his well bought, but little light portfolio.



  • Looks good to me. Best to start steady like this and get a feel for it. Only invest more when you feel comfortable doing so and obviously don't bet more than you can afford to lose.



  • This portfolio only has excellent FI picks in it. It's brilliantly done for a newbie.

    If I have one suggestion, though, it is to consider the overall balance of your portfolio. Given you've only gone for proven winners who are on the expensive side, your portfolio looks a little high risk to me.

    The index goes through phases. Top players will rise for a while, then the focus will be on defenders, then the focus will be on youth, then the focus will be on cheap players. When any of these phases is ongoing other players will be neglected a bit.

    We've been in a top players phase for more than a month now. With the top 50 players ( which I think all of your players are in?) rising 8.8% in the month up to 28th Dec, the players 200-400 have dropped 2.32%, and the FI overall is down 0.65%! (Stats from MattFI's excellent emails.)

    This is not typical - it is merely a cyclical thing. I honestly don't know how long this top 50 trend will continue for. I suspect it was mostly because of the share split announcement. To me it looks like it might already be starting to go into reverse, with recent drops in Mbappe, Kane and Neymar, amongst others.

    Who knows what direction it will go in. My only point is that focusing your investment in one part of the market is risky. It might be a risk that pays off. The share split may turn out to be as lucrative as some people claim it will be. Personally I think it will have something of an impact, but not as big as many people seem to think, and I reckon the market has already priced in most of it. I also predict a collapse in top players around the time of or just before the share split, followed by a slow rise afterwards (you can never be sure with these things, but flippers gunna flip).

    Just be aware that whilst you have chosen excellent picks for dividend returns, it is not clear how you will fare on capital appreciation, and you may find that at times the majority of your portfolio loses value at the same time, and more so than the majority of FI traders! That said, if you are willing to accept these as bumps in the road, and you have reason to believe the top players will recover afterwards as fashions change, that's fine. Just recognise that as a result this is a highly long term strategy - you may not be able to take your money out at the kind of profit you'd like at a given time.

    Good luck! You've clearly got your head screwed on. And welcome to the FI community. :)
