Agree with the poster above.
Sorry OP but you’re barking up the wrong tree here. The market is looking strong, stable, and starting to mature.
But the discussion about “who the better player is” disregards the dividend metrics on Football Index. The best players are not necessarily the best FI picks.
There is a long-running media saga that will build around Sancho about his move back to the PL. The tabloids are already talking up his prospects as England’s future. He will almost certainly return more MB over the next few years; therefore a price above KDB would be justified.
Firmino is the sort of player who will return poor PB scores for nine weeks and then suddenly knock in two goals against a mid-table team and return a 200+ PB. I don’t hold him as I think there are better options for this sort of forward, but he’s not a bad shout. Has nabbed a bit of MB in the past as well, such as when he injured his eye.
Ok just put £1 on an Anytime Scorer bet. Your losses will be minimal, but your potential gains will probably be just as good as if you pump £50 into the Index chasing a 2p dividend for 30 days.
I think that’s a selective way of looking at it. If I put £1 on Eysseric tomorrow night, I might get £6 back but I’m more likely to lose £1.
Whereas if I put £60 into Eysseric on Football Index, I can be anticipating making some profit, hopeful of making a lot, and confident in the knowledge I won’t lose in the long term.
Anytime goalscorer betting and Football Index are still very different products and metrics, with a different risk/reward profile for people who want to trade like I do. There’s no need to conflate them.
The skill now regarding G&A divs is to do you research and buy EARLY on players who may score during the next two or three games. You can then flip if you want or hold, whatever you decide its relatively safe to assume the price won't fall anywhere near where you bought in because people aren't panic buying/selling now like they did during that first week of the trial.
For me this is the joy of G&A and why I have really come round to it. I dispute the idea that it’s like an anytime goalscorer bet, because I’m yet to experience my 70p G&A pick losing me all my money when they don’t score. Maybe down a few pence, but they often rebound for the next game and then spike when they score. If it’s helping FI make some more commission, then that’s even better.
They are announced on FootballIndex.news a day before, but I would heavily caution against trying to flip IPOs if you’re still learning your way through the platform and haven’t seen it in action before. You may get lucky but it’s easily the most volatile and potentially costly bit of trading you’ll see on the platform. A lot of people have spent many years honing their techniques and approaches to get in before anyone else.
Completely agree. I’ve just ticked over two years on FI and I am still so excited about where this thing is headed. It’s just at the very beginning of the journey. People that have discovered the platform at this early stage could be in line to make a lot of money.
@playingcards1 just thinking off the top of my head with less risk usually comes less reward. eg if 1 player takes a massive rise I won't have as many futures in him if I had half the players with twice the futures? Does this make sense mate? It all helps get my head around it.
Yeh for sure, though I guess you could also decide that with a wider portfolio youve actually trebled your chances of catching a massive rise.
Personally I couldn’t tell you which of Eriksen, Havertz, and Brozovic - all around £4 - will next get a price spike. I would definitely prefer to own 10 across the board, rather than 30 in one player, in order to benefit off their collective upward growth. I don’t think this constrains your profit overall in a growing market.
