We had a questionnaire recently regarding ME - I have to admit I’m on the fence still with it, I think the impact it’s had on instant sell/lower end of market has been hugely detrimental to the product...lots of people were screaming for order books but now we have something comparable I can’t help feeling the simplicity of how it was before was better/more enjoyable...as the saying good ‘if it ain’t broke...’ - does anyone else share this view, essentially that FI was a generally better product before ME was introduced?

RE: Matching Engine
in my opinion this is completely inaccurate. who you bought 12 months ago at the existing terms is totally different to that player now at the current terms. you wouldve evaluated buying that player at the time and amde a judgement on whether it is a good buy - you cant predict that in the future that the goal posts were going to change... and you cant apply your theory of a 34 year old hungarian player as there are some genuinly decent holds which have been affected
RE: Positivity in times of uncertainty.
It’s really obvious what @Erased-Citizen is saying I’m unsure why people are fighting against it. He understands the market and understands percentages, what he’s saying is correct interms of looking at FI as a product with X amount of customers. He isn’t wrong - that’s the way he’s looking at it. @MrWh1te you are looking at at it too comparatively with a stock market, which it isn’t.
What everyone all need to agree on is the FI needs to do whatever it takes to survive in this current situation so the route they’ve chosen also isn’t wrong. As people have said, they haven’t had much time but their hand has been forced to react, so let’s see how the next week or 2 pan out.
I cant hold out any longer - i was about to explode... rightly or wrongly i've splashed out my cash balance, ive accepted i may lose a few pence short term but i started to see my portfolio rise a little over the last 2 hours so i feel now is as good a time as any to take the plunge... for anyone interested in where my funds went - see below...
Fri 13/03/20 - 11:35:27 Purchase Anthony Gordon 50 -£69.00 top up
Fri 13/03/20 - 11:34:22 Purchase Dodi Lukebakio 50 -£43.00 top up

RE: ⚽️🏆🎸✌️😜Football Index Ferret Association (FIFA) League 2019/20
Just wanted to take a second to thank everyone on this chat & @Advinculas-Index for setting it up. ive been on FI for roughly 6 months and definatly still learning. after my poor show in this FIFA comp its highlighted to me how volotile/high risk my portfolio was. it was definatly far to bias towards youth (maybe a product of timing when i joined as this was the trend). i feel like something has really sunk in recently and have now moved towards a more diverse strategy. Although ive still kept alot of my original holds ive effictivly halved my investment in them and spread this accross more of the big hitters (examples being mbappe, sancho, felix, havertz, CHO, Sterling, Rashford) who are more PB/MB driven but are still young so have great potential for CA. ive invested a total of £9k and if i'm honest i wasnt that comfortable investing more, but spreading it around as i now have has resulted in a much more balance portfolio, arguably wiith less risk attached...and has also curbed my urge to invest more. so thanks again, appreciate reading all advice in various feeds. looking forward to seeing the difference in growth % of the new strategy

love how youve somehow managed to mix Gilmour in with Bruno & Pogba, nice
RE: Reality Check
I think lots of people on here are massivly guilty of comparing football index directly to a stock market. its a completely different product. the best thing i read on hear was 'play the man, not the cards', its exactly correct.... no day is the same, patterns change and are unpredictable and there are different ways of making money without one way being right and another wrong. Someone with £100 to invest compared with £10,000 to invest is obviously going to have a completely different strategy, and someone who spends £100 is obviously going to be less enthusiastic about making 10% than the latter. so many users of football index convince themselves its not a gambling site and think they have more of a say in strategy because they have more money invested. its utter rubbish, stop over analysing the product, treat it for what it is, and ultimately done spend what you cant afford to lose...
RE: New IPO's - Next week.
i think we need to be happy that they have communicated a much more transparent plan, even if its not completely ironed out. this is what weve all been asking for.
from a personal point of view i think this will lower my involvement in IPO's as i think you either need to be incredibly lucky now to jump on at a good entry point or literally be sitting on the app/online 24 hours a day. its incredibly likely that we will miss the boat on the majority of new players.

RE: FI vs Footstock
totally appreciate what you are saying and hands up havent given it a proper chance - i have confidence that FI profits will return as they always have - FS in comparson just seems much more directly linked to gambling in my opinion which maybe is why i didnt like it as i feel to some extent FI has moved me away from that (just my opinion) - its the fact that your funds could be gone fairly instantaniously if you are having a day of boredum or a few beers.
totatally get where youu are coming from though with regards to putting the time in to understand it properly...although just me personally i didnt have this with FI - i found it easy to grasp instantly.... my knowledge of how to get the most out of it then obviously evolved but i never had that initial feeling of uncertainty
RE: FI vs Footstock
admiteddly using it for a night cant really be seen as giving it a chance, i just got badvibes from it and found it really un-user friendly. the bit that would appeal are the tournamnets and the 'fifa' style cards but it just seems that for me personally i am not suited to it as you said...the tournaments on 'draftkings' i would guess would be equally as enjoyable
RE: Who To Buy On PaYDaY?
i did go through a little period of buying keepers - and agree its safe money. i could easily top up on keepers (i only have a few 100 in around 5 keepers) but they just dont give me the same pleasure as owning an attacking player....but i still may do with a sensible head on
RE: FI vs Footstock
I used to read the word 'footstock' with instant dislike as sub concious loyalty to FI. however i got bored last night and tried it out....forgive me. i used to worry slightly that it would compete with FI, but was instantly given confidence seeing that it was a completely different product. i thought it was absolutley awful. i dont know if many of you guys have had success with it but i thought it was really difficult to navigate around, no real clear instructions on what to do to make money and above all it felt much more like a gambling platform. there are many ways to lose money quickly so if you have an addictive personality it really isnt good. the thing i love most about FI and ive read it here alot is that it has stopped me losing money on general sports betting day to day....YES I KNOW FI IS STILL GAMBLING BEFORE EVERYONE JUMPS ON ME....but there just seems to be a huge difference between the way you can control your money to some extent, i feel confident that with FI, i still can take a small loss and make it back by being shrewd. the perception i got from footstock is that i would eventually find myself in a situation as i did in the past with various betting sites, of effectifly chasing lost money. i'm not blinkered to what FI is and i know the risks - the comparison just seems alot more calculated. for example the roulette game on footstock, if you go up against someone with the same player - they literally flip a coin to determine who wins...its like a £10 bet on a 2 horse race and the winner is determined by chance. just thought i'd share this view for what its worth for anyone considering it - it made me really appreciate how good FI is in comparison and also reminded me of how easy it can be to lose money quickly
Who To Buy On PaYDaY?
