MY MAN #1 RANKED TRANSFER PROFITTTT
🙏 🙏 🙏
When do you believe TOTY will drop? Will this unexpected delay make prices bounce up or will they continue trending down?
I think they will keep trending downward, but I think the market rebounded a bit since people were fed up with waiting who were going to buy teams during TOTY. My guess is it will drop on Friday, January 15th after Headliners concludes. I know it has always dropped on Monday’s in the past, but since EA have moved to 2 week promos I think it makes more sense. Also, releasing TOTY on a Friday seems like a better business practice to increase the hype over the course of the week rather than dropping it on a Monday.
For the THURSDAY FLIPS, do you recommend selling Thursday or Friday? And do you know when they return to packs? Ben Yedder and Bamba?
Headliners 1 golds will go back into packs on Friday at 6pm. Diversifying your sales on Thursday and Friday is probably a smart move.
All these investments you show us always goes for more than your target buy. I try to snipe/bid on them but it usually does not work. Should I overpay for some of the cards by 200-300 or should I skip the investment?
If you are patient you can win them via bid/snipe. Look to purchase during high volume times (6-9pm UK time) or during rewards. You can stretch the buy price, but just know that is the profit you are sacrificing.
Thank you for the quick answer 🙂
Hi chef, is headliner Amavi worth to invest? I wondering if his price rises after out of pack. Thanks!!!
Possibly, but I think it is too early to invest there. I’m waiting until Thursday to look where there prices are.
What price do you think is reasonable? I’m waiting for him to drop to 25k.
What is your take on the RTTF players? I have Salah and Wijnaldum in my squad right now. I’m really enjoying them, and don’t think of them as investments directly, but I do want to avoid sitting on crashing cards :).
So what do you say, sell or keep? I’
They will probably decrease when/if TOTY comes, but no knowing exactly when that will be, unfortunately.
Would you think Maignan would be a good investment from the current TOTW as he is one of the cheapest 84 rated IF cards and even in his position and league there is no one that contests his 20k pricetag in the same rating. Lopes is closest but goes for approx. ~30k and doesnt have french nation link like Maignan…
He is pretty good. I like Ligue 1 Informs a lot considering what I said in this post.
Cześć pierwszego dnia promocji hedliners kupowałem Bambe za 360k – dziś wszystkie poszły za 465k PC – nie doradzasz handlu na tego typu kartach bo to ryzykowne? Pozdrowienia z Polski 🙂
Translation: Hello on the first day of the hedliners promotion, I was buying Bambe for 360k – today they all went for 465k PC – do you not advise trading on this type of cards because it is risky? Greetings from Poland 🙂
Buying cards on the first day they are in packs is very risky. Not to say there isn’t coins to be made there, but just have to get in an out very quickly, usually.
Packed Headliners Ben Yedder last night. Should I hold him until he’s out of packs on Friday or sell now and invest in some icons to sell on Thursday? Do all icons tend to rise before Weekend League or are certain ones a better option? Cheers.
I would sell and reinvest. Icons always go up on Thursdays, but you aren’t going to get the same ROI as you would if you invested in cheaper players in my Top Buys.
Hey chief, I still have 10 Tavernier sif, should I sell now and make a loss in case he gets a headliners?
I wouldn’t be too concerned about him decreasing too much since he is one of the cheapest 84 rated informs. Regardless, I think that selling and reinvesting in my Top Buys would offer you a better ROI.
is there coming a Post about the TOTY SBC’s? Do you think it’s possible to make money on That like on the 84 and 85 rated cards in the past?
It’s possible, but 84s/85s are much higher now than they typically are. There are other investments that you can make money on between now and TOTY.
You think players that make TOTY (if it ever happens) will rise. IE Lewandowski?
Looking at graphs from last year, yes, gold cards that go OOP for TOTY should rise a bit, especially if you buy at the bottom of the market. Can’t know for sure yet when that will be.
Got a tough question – got 30 Pogba’s, 10 Kante’s and 15 Varane’s, bought them yesterday. Today came out the info that trailer with TOTY will be released today, which means: CRASH! Should I sell them as fast as I can?
Too late bro, -500k 😀 happens sometimes
Market might bounce back a bit tomorrow. I’d look to sell then. They could get a TOTY Nominee card that forces their gold card OOP, too, so that could help them rebound.
Hi chief, I invested in 10 izzos at 12000 each. Good time to sell?
Hi Chief, trust you are well. So I’m view of TOTY coming should I sell my star players? I have Neymar, Mbappe, CR7 and Best. Is the drop that large?
We will know more about how the market will react to TOTY after we see nominees for today. Ask me again then. But yes, I anticipate them to drop quite a bit after this WL.
Brilliant…. thanks Chief let the sell off begin.
I am going to build my team during toty when would be the best time to buy? I also want the new headliners lozano should i buy before he is oop or wait until toty as well?
I would buy both your team and Headliners Lozano during TOTY attackers. That will likely come on January 18th or 25th.
