Me to my Boss: "I'm going to take my lunch at 11:59 tomorrow"
Boss: "why so specific?
Me: "You won't understand !!"
I have the same dilemma but I'm thinking who has potential MB returns in the next 2/3 months, Pogba and Neymar are definate keeps and also Hazard and Sancho.....April is a strange month for the Index because players price usually go down but they will defiantly pick up end of May, June and July.
I have been involved in the 'Football Index' for just over a year now and i have seen a lot of price fluctuation in player's futures !! the question we have to ask ourselves is why are we using 'Football Index' in the first place....
Buying and Selling for short-term profit can pay off if you know when to strike on your portfolio but the biggest downside is short-term trading takes time and a lot of commitment towards the Index (a good trader would check the market every 45 mins-1 hour) but like the majority of us most of the time we are away from the Index (e.g working, spend time with the family) and therefore may not check their portfolio for up to 3-4 hours and that is a LONG time in the trading world !!, if you check your portfolio every 3-4 hours then short-term trading is NOT recommended as this can lead to rash selling decisions which can ironically lead to you making more of a loss than a profit in the long run !!!
i'm almost finished i promise..... In my opinion 'Long-Term Investment' is the key to the 'Football Index' and this is where you end up making the bigger bucks :-), use the Buzz/Media Dividends to your advantage and remember who is on form, the longer you hold your futures the more dividends you will get and therefore result in a steady return and will improve your decision making in trading.
Thanks for your time and happy trading :-)
I have been investing on Football Index for about 2 years now and I have been a huge fan of football since i was 10 years old....most football fans who trade on here know quite a bit about the main league in the top 5 countries (England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany) and there are a group of traders who go that extra mile to research other countries (Portugal, Holland, Brazil, Argentina) and reap rewards by getting in on these countries players early....
The point that I am trying to make is where do we start researching and how far do we need to analyse to enable us to get the best profit we can??? Passes? Goals? Assists? Clearances?....where do you start?
Also what makes us invest in these players that most of us have never heard of....this is the group of traders i was talking about earlier on that go the extra mile, a bit more time spent researching will pay off !!
My final point i want to make is there is a lot of traders out there that know a fair bit about football but still get caught out by the 'sheep' effect, what i mean by this is say for example Barkley, who had an excellent performance in Chelsea's last match against Southampton. I was watching the match and looking at FI at the same time (i'm not the only one, right guys !!) and i noticed that Barkley went up about 15-17p before he scored then went up about 35p when he scored, that's the point when we started buying futures in him thinking we can get on the profit boat like everyone else (like sheep) but at the end of the match reality kicks in...that 35p rise soon drops to 20p within minutes and you are left with small profit or even end up in the RED !!, in conclusion to this "Don't always be the sheep, sometimes you need to be the herder watching on"
Let's hear your views, what research did you do to get the players into your portfolio?
Here are the players currently in my portfolio, like to hear your views on who should be added and who should be sold:
Stuani (tonight only)
Espinosa (tonight only)
@Pierrey2129 sorry, i thought Giggs and Moyes were after Van Gaal, i'll edit....
Does anyone agree that investing in anyone £4 and over will not generate worthy profit? Its seems like the only reason you should buy players in this range is for MB returns??
Also what will happen when a large majority of the players reach this £4 range, will this effect market growth?
Just made an investment on Amavi, his stats on various sources on the internet show that he has been good all season so far and at 31p he must be due for a rise soon? I can't see what his PB scores have been so far....if anyone can provide these to me then that would be great :-)
@Martyn-B Haland, Lewandowski and Di Maria are mainly holds from CL football and should get a bit of a rise because of this??....Bayern and PSG should get to the QFs, as for Haland he may not be in the top 5 leagues but he is a goal machine like Malen so both of them should draw some media attention from PL teams in Jan 2020/July 2020 transfer windows.
Apologies if this subject is on the forum already but I need other traders opinions !!
I hold 200 x Mbappe with a current profit of 82p per share and a current share price of £6.49 being 4th highest on the Index.....the issue is I have held these 200 for about 15 months now and the return is not that great for a 4th placed player !! (Overpriced?)
Does anyone else have an issue with holding Mbappe shares as the return is minimal? also when is he due to return from his injury?
Hold for the future? or invest elsewhere?
Anyone out there owning Felix for the long term? i have been holding him for about 3 weeks now and only have 3p profit on him so considering re-investing his money elsewhere.
I suppose you can argue that he is playing for one of the best teams in the world and has Champions League football coming up but is he worth holding at the moment?
Looking forward to your opinions on this...
