New User Looking to Start Trading

  • Hi All,

    I have been looking at trading on FI for a few weeks now and think i am about to take the plunge . Im just looking for a couple more questions answered from people already using FI. So if you can help that would be great:

    1 - Where can i find how much and how many PB/MB dividends has received in the past?
    2 - Are there tools available to help with the research of players? and what do you look for when looking into buying shares of a player?
    3 - Looking to get in on a few players to begin with and then when the share split comes around topping them players up (for eg... maybe buying a few Rashfords to start and then increasing my shares in him)? What do you guys think?
    4 - I'm looking to build a spreadsheet to keep track of all my trades/profits/losses etc... What sort of criteria do you think is important to track?

    And just out of interest what sort of strategies do you guys follow?

    Thanks for your time and i appreciate the help

  • Firstly, hello Tom 👋🏻 You have the right idea, you want to research and read up on FI and how it works first before putting in any significant money. is free and shows you who won what dividends. Study that. For more in depth analysis there is index edge £5 per month or Noirx £2.
    Listen to the Football Index podcast. Read the forums. After a while u will got a feel for what various players should cost, and if they are under or priced. Compare them to other players in the same position to get that price comparison. Strikers and attacking midfielders generally have a higher ceiling price then holding midfielders like Kante and modric, who are £2 mark. Defenders rarely get beyond about £4. Whereas an attacking mid fielder or striker can go upwards of £19 (Neymar) It’s based on dividend return.
    Don’t panic buy or sell. You will be in the red for many months at a time but stick with it if you feel the player still has growth. But if they are old and in terminal decline bite the bullet and sell. Have a varied portfolio of proven dividend returners and young, cheap and up and coming talent. Research on the net about who are the next superstars in world football and look into them. Watch football (easy😄) and enjoy. Start small and invest more as you learn the ropes. Good luck.
