Q & A Tuesday – Week 5
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!
Any thoughts on those untradeable pack SBCs? Good value or nah because they’re untradeable?
IF Delaney is starting to rise, do you think I should sell for 70k and rake 3k benefit or wait a bit longer?
Wait, if you look at Upameco IF, he was around 130k and now he is 220k. I expect Delaney to reach high in the coming days
Upamecano has the added advantage of being in TOTW 1, plays for Leipzig (same as Mukiele), and is French for hybrids. I’d lower your expectations a bit.
Ah alright, good to know. I’m still new to trading so yeah
I would wait until Thursday/Friday to sell.
I see people buying meta cards (for instance rashford) for like 120k end sell for 140k. When is it the best time to buy those cards? And when to sell?
I should have some advice in this one.
I wouldn’t be interested in buying Rashford right now. He is currently OOP for TOTW 4 and should dip once he returns to packs tomorrow.
Hi chief! Whats your thoughts on Varane for 300K?
That is expensive, he was around 280k a couple days back. Even 250k two weeks ago.
Yeah, I checked out his graph, but such a high rated meta card. Cant see it drop back to 250 tbh
He is an interesting look this week. A lot of new French players and has the strong link to Valverde if he makes it in TOTW 5.
Thanks! Looking to buy for main team. When or at what price should I be looking at?
I’d look to buy during DR/WL rewards.
Hey chief, thoughts on IF werner? Looking like good value at just over 300k with base at 220k, rashford base is also at 220k but IF is at almost 600k (rashford does look a bit better)
The reason Rashford’s IF is so much more expensive is because of the position change. Strikers are always more expensive than wingers.
Invested in a ton of UCL cards last night for around 1200-1300K each. Goes for around 1,8-2K now. Do you think they will continue to rise until the release of UEFA MM?
Maybe a bit, but probably not much higher than they are right now. I’d be selling at least some in the hype before the release.
Hey Chief, I want to make a good Team to grind and have fun, when is the best time? and also, would it be good to implement some Icons for Overnight selling?
In general, the longer you wait to buy a team the better, especially if you are using gold cards.
The best day to flip icons is Wednesday into Thursday. Icons always go up on Thursday as people build around their WL rewards.
Hi chief, what would be a great investment right now at the striker position ?
Depends on your budget and time frame, to be honest.
I’m currently working some nightshifts and have a lot of free time over night (uk time) to look at the market.
Any good strategies you know of to make coin over night?
Buying popular players and listing for lazies can be a profitable strategy if you do a lot of volume. Keep rewards and other promotions in mind, though. For example, you wouldn’t want to be buying on Wednesday night when rewards come on Thursdays. Supply means price drops, and you would be better off buying during rewards instead.
Will Lewandowski drop/rise in value if he is/isn’t in totw?
If he is in TOTW, he will drop in value. If he isn’t he will bounce back. He has a strong link to Douglas Costa’s Rulebreaker card, too, so I’d expect a decent rebound.
I bought a De Bruyne a little while back as both a hopeful investment and for my squad. I haven’t been too impressed with him in game given the ~300k price tag (I’m on PC), and he’s held pretty steady there. I’m wondering if there is any value in holding him, I’m pretty sure the coins are best invested elsewhere as I try some other options for his spot.
I’m in the same situation with Varane, but he’s been a monster at the back for me and don’t want to let him go =)
Just wanted to see what your thoughts on this situation are, it seems like lots of high value golds have just kinda held their prices, at least on PC.
Thanks for all of your insight and advice!
Meta golds like those will likely lose value in a couple weeks once we get closer to Black Friday. I would sell and invest elsewhere. There will be several good looks in the coming days.
Hey Chief, any investments you can say just now other than the top buys?
I post them as they come up. There will be more in the coming days with TOTW 5/Thursday Flips/Rulebreakers 2.
Do you like buying high rated players SBC players on Thursday?
84- rated for example
I would rather invest in usable Thursday Flips than SBC fodder, to be honest. There will be a list of looks later this week.
Chief do you think Laporte will go more down? Planning to sell Van Dijk and change him for laporte, just to have a link with makeliele
Laporte might dip a bit more with supply on Thursday. I’d look to buy then.
Best time to buy rule breakers ocampos?
I would buy Thursday during rewards.
When you say buy during rewards, do you mean rivals rewards or champions? And during that hour or an hour later( due to the listing)
WL rewards is usually better. More supply then.
Is trading metas on a weekly basis a viable trading technique? For example buying Allan’s, ASMs, Joe Gomez etc and selling for when people buying WL teams. If so could you give some advice on best time to buy and best time to sell?
It is an effective strategy. There are some that are better than others, though, based on the events of the week. Buying during WL/DR rewards on Thursday and selling later that day is usually a good strategy.
hey chief do you think that walker is a good investment for 100 k ? it went up to 130-140 k on thursday/friday
He is pretty good, but I think there are other better looks than him. I’ll have a list of Thursday Flips after TOTW 5 comes out tomorrow.
I bought ferland mendy for 116k. Is it a good price and will be rise for rewards?
He should rise after rewards, yes, but he might go lower during rewards than the price that you paid for him.
what would be a good price to buy him for? and how much to list for lazy buyers? Thanks for the help btw i appreciate it!
I’ll be posting my buy prices on my Thursday Flips list tomorrow. My recommended lazy listing prices are in this article.
Hi chief, Delaney inform currently sitting at 69k, would you agree in saying I’m too late now on this investment, or do you believe I could possibly squeez a few coins out of him buying him at 69 before he goes out of packs
You might be able to squeeze a few more coins out of him, but there will be other looks in the coming days you could try to purchase, too – notably OOP TOTW 5 players, Thursday Flips, and OOP Rulebreakers 2 players.
Hi chief. Got 130k and would like to get trading. Got any tips or advice on what seems to be a crazy market.
Well, you can always refer to my Top Buys for my favorite investment looks. There are a few there in my Target Buy range and there will be more coming later this week.
Most of the advice I provide here is in relation to investing (buying now and selling later) as opposed to trading (buying now and selling now). I reserve most of my trading information for subscribers.
Ok chief appreciate the reply. Out of interest what are your subs earning per month with your subscription.
That is a very difficult thing to measure. The more time you put in, the more coins you can make. You could try to measure coins/hour, but there are certain hours where you can make more coins than other hours. Making 5 million coins in a month is attainable with some work, but having an initial base of coins always helps. Takes coins to make coins.
Hi Chief! I’m willing to put in the work to make that 5 million a month. Once my transfer list is clear I should have 750k to get started with. I’ve got the basic membership but want to upgrade for discord access and early access to articles, when do you think is the best time to do this?
Nice! You should wait until November 1st to upgrade, though, since Patreon charges on the day you sign up and the 1st of the next month (midnight Pacific time).
