For me its simple, I will keep nearly all of my players for the best part of three years as I only buy players that will potentially still be at, or reach their peak at the end of the three years, so I don't buy players older than 26.
I make sure that the players I pick have loads of potential and hold no matter what.
The way the market is growing why throw away profit on commission or IS costs as if you have bought the right players then just ride the peaks and troughs, when a player dips I buy more as they always seem to bounce back as long as the reasons for the original purchase still apply.
If I see an opportunity for a new player then I just deposit more funds.
Seems to have worked well so far as since investing proper money in March I am approx 43% profit which in 5 months I am more than happy with.
In the early days I did sell a few players that I bought whilst not understanding the index as I do now, and sold a few which have gone on to appreciate even further, so I figured that whilst FI is growing then why sell.
Everyone on here has a different strategy and there are many ways to make profits but for me this is the least stressful. I hope that when order books eventually comes on board then all the player purchase dates will be easy to track.
The biggest lesson I have learnt is that patience is the biggest factor is maximising profit as if you bought for the right reasons then they wont change anytime soon.
I have a budget for the coming season for the next Maddison, AWB, Mctominay etc,etc,etc.
For the record I currently have a port of 80 players with 6 in the red, but I am not concerned as I know they will bounce back
Yeah agree! From what I read if your player became relegated into a squad player you could then not liquidate the asset making buying anyone with a low price tag a huge risk. This new set up is far better as I see the best opportunity of this game the investment into future stars.
