I am a trader who has mainly dealt in the bottom end of the market making significant % gains from trading at the lower end.
Ignoring for the moment the rights and wrongs of FI withdrawing their own backed IS function.
For me we are once again seeing user momentum pushing back into the higher end of the market. Exactly the same as we saw with the share split and the dividend changes. The value of a player is no different today as it was pre ME. The only difference is the fear of not being able to get out of a trade. 3 years is a hell of a long time in football and if we a expect FI to continue to grow then there will be an inevitable stage where the lower end looks value again.
I am currently picking up IPD players at anywhere from 40-60% of their market value. Not in huge quantities I must say buy it's ticking me over.
I tried staring up a thread previously for buyers to name their purchase price but unfortunately it didn't pick up traction.
If you believe the bottom end players' IS prices are too low why not try selling a couple of your higher end players at market value and offer bids at the lower end. This is what I am currently doing.
Once again I am not picking sides on the right or wrong of FI and the change of terms. Just trying to spot an opportunity in the market.
