Q & A Tuesday – Week 36
A weekly thread meant for discussion about anything and everything related to the FUT market. Pose your questions about player prices, investing and trading strategies, or upcoming events. I will answer questions as quickly as I can, but if you can respond before I do, feel free to hop in the conversation!
Also, follow my on Twitter if you don’t already!
Chief, I’m looking at completing the Larsson SBC. I have the 85 & 86 rated teams to finish. The 86 rated team will cost me around 80k after using FUT Swap Keita, SBC Al Soma and Casillas from my club. Am i correct in thinking that the cheapest time to finish these would be starting on the 29th May when world cup drops?
Also any investing tips for Calcio A TOTS?
Yes, prices will take a massive hit with all of the pack openings that day.

Firstly, Chief, you’re the goat. I invested in MM again (after your mm predictions post), I bought about 140 silvers (150 coins a piece), Yesterday, and today, I slowly offload them for 1k-1,2k each 😀 (it’s nearly 110k profit after tax 😉 ).
Will you post another MM predictions today? 😀
Yes, I’ll be posting MM predictions again today. They will be for international fixtures, though, so don’t expect them to be as profitable.
Invested in some rather cheap calcio A players ranging from 82-84 and prices from 1900-4500 with the exception of 2 matuidi 10k. Do you think that these have any chance of rising due to calico A tots sbc on Sunday?
This was just a pure gamble on my side but thought “what the heck” let’s see if I can make some coins out of this. Perin, reina, callejon, Milinkovic-Savic, de vrij, Consigli are the players I invested the most in.
It all depends on the SBC requirements. If the SBC only requires an 82 rated squad, then your 83/84 rated players won’t rise as much. That is why the Hradecky investment for Bundesliga TOTS SBCs didn’t work out this past week.
time to sell hradecky?
Wait until tomorrow. He might rise for the RoW TOTS SBC.
Hi friend, Im continue holding the IF Lombán (I was bought at 12-11.5k or something like this). What do you think about that’ it’s better sell before the WC for try to lose less coins or do you think could be more expensive and finally win some coins?
Thank you so much mate
You should sell him and move on. You are missing out on too many coins not investing in other things by holding him.
Yes I know, but I dont have problem becouse Im very bussy with my work and university so I can’t play so much.
For that I ask if you say I have chance with Lomban I prefer wait becouse I dont have lot of time to reinvest my coins, however, If I dont have any chance I will start to sell slowly when I have a little free time.
Honestly just quick sell. Don’t worry about making an extra 500-1000 coins. That will take you 5 minutes.
Then buy a bunch of 84 Milinkovic-Savic informs or 82 Luis Gustavos. That will take you anther 5 minutes.
I’ll do it then, thanks mate, I apreciate your fast replys!
Worth investing again in ROW on Wednesday since there will probably be 2 TOTS SBC’s on Sunday and 2 on Tuesday, 1 for Ligue 1 & Calcio A? 60k as target price? Or do you recommend better investments with more profit potential ?
Cheaper players tend to have better profits – that is almost always the case. It is just more legwork to buy 100 cards at 1k rather than 1 card at 100k.
I recommend diversifying investments rather than sticking all your eggs in one basket. If you had 500k to invest in, you could do something like:
1. 200k in Milinkovic-Savic
2. 100k in Luis Gustavo
3. 200k in cheap TOTS players
I’d try and get the TOTS players for 55k or less.
And if you had 7 million to invest? Would that change your investments? Otherwise it would look like this (see below) and I would need soo many hours to buy these players haha. I would do it if you think it would maximize my profit.
1. 3 million in Milinkovic
2. 2 million in Luiz Gustavo
3. 3 million in cheap TOTS?
I noticed that Milinkovic was already inflated, isn’t it too late to buy him? The earlier I buy him the better right? For example the 84 was 22 and is already 30k on PS4.
Well this brings up another thing that you have to consider. If you are buying enough players to fill up your transfer list, it has to be worth it to the point that you can sacrifice coins you can make day trading. Let me explain this a bit further. Let’s say you invest 3 million in Milinkovic, 2 million in Luis Gustavo, 3 million in cheap TOTS. This will put you over your 100 card transfer list limit, meaning that you cannot do any day trading. Day trading using the sniping filters can earn you 25k+ per hour. Is the potential profit gained through filling up your transfer list worth sacrificing coins gained through day trading? Additionally, do you have time to do day trading? Are you good enough at sniping to be able to consistently make that 25k+ per hour? As you can see, this is much more complex than you might think on the face of it. If you are good at day trading, I’d say keep some transfer list spots open, meaning you would invest more so in the expensive players like Milinkovic and cheap TOTS. If you are not good at day trading and/or don’t have… Read more »
Interesting read, didn’t look at it like that before. However, I’m not the kind of person to do hours of day trading, I hardly even play FIFA. I just wanna invest all my coins and sell a few days later when I am happy with the profit and then some day hopefully built my ultimate team. The rest of the time I’m playing Fortnite, a game I much more enjoy this year, because the gameplay isn’t great this year (and that’s an understatement).
What would you say is the target price for Milinkovic 84? I know you said, look at it yourself and I did. Like I said before he was 22k before and is now 30k, which seems a bit high, but I have no idea if he will stay there (then it’s too high) or if he will rise to 40k (then picking up at 30k is fine).
Again, I’d invest in a variety of SMS informs. I see them all rising, just hard to say which will have the best ROI. Grab some cheap TOTS cards tomorrow/Thursday as well – target buy at 55k.
As last tots sbc required 82 rated squad, do you think calcio a sbc will also require 82s? and if yes, considering to that is acerbi (cost about 2,4k rn) a good look to invest now?
If you are going to invest in this weekend’s league TOTS SBCs, I still like Luis Gustavo as the best look. I mention why in this article.
Chief does allan if looks like a good investment
He’s not a bad look. I could see him rising to 20k+.
And what is the price milinkovic savic 84 could set?
Hoping for somewhere between 35-40k.
Thank you alot thank to you i have 6m thank to your advice on inigo 84 and parejo i made millions you are the most reliable and the most in touch fut trader i know
Glad to help! Tell your friends!
And for 86 immobile
Hi Chief! i picked up a few ROW TOTS for 55k ish. should i try to flip them immediately or do you think they may rise in value in the coming days?
Wait until Sunday for the next round of guaranteed TOTS SBCs. They should rise for that.
How do you think the market crash will impact the ROW TOTS investments I made? Also when is the best time to sell these investments and also Gustavo’s normal gold card and SMS IF’s?
Sell your RoW investments, Gustavos, and SMS IF’s Sunday and Monday to avoid the Tuesday crash.
Because of the upcoming crash, I am thinking of selling my team to buy it again afterwards. Does this sound like a good idea? I have never done this before and I was wondering if there was any risk in doing so. What do you think?
Yes, that is a good idea. Sell this weekend and look to buy back sometime next week or weekend.
Why haven’t you made some articles on the more important stuff that’s going on right now? I mean
1. Some people are wondering what’s happening with the market, all player prices have been going off a cliff, including Icons, TOTY’s, top tier golds and normal golds. A lot of people are wondering when the lowest point of the crash is so they can buy their dream team, be smart and advice us.
2. A lot of people also have investments like Milinkovic, ROW Tots and Gustavo’s. They didn’t rise or even got lower, what do you advice them to do?
1. The market will crash next week with the release of World Cup mode on Tuesday and Ultimate TOTS on Friday. If you have players worth 25k+, I would make sure to sell them this weekend to avoid losing coins. I’m not sure exactly when the low point of the market will be. It depends what EA does with lightning rounds and packs on Tuesday and in the subsequent days.
2. I would sell all of those players tomorrow shortly after the TOTS SBC release.
My best friend is getting married this weekend, so that is why my availability has been limited. Forgive me for not posting.
I wasn’t speaking for myself with these questions but thanks nonetheless. I meant maybe a post on the front page addressing these stuff and it would help you grow 🙂
How much of a risk do you think it would be to hold onto the ROW TOTS beyond the WC release and sell them when they rise after later in the week or potentially when the Ultimate TOTS SBC drops. Or would you advice to sell now and take huge losses?
i second this question. i have around 10 tots players which i bought around 48-60K. should we sell today before the sbcs, after the sbcs or hold until ultimate tots?
Yo, i have the same problem, 37 cheap tots bought between 55k and 60k. I am getting the feeling a lot op players have still a lot of them… so their price will not go up much. any thoughts chief?
Chief, we need you chief!!!
I was gone at my best friends wedding for the past few days. The market has crashed even harder than I predicted. Hopefully people took my advice and sold teams in preparation for this.
