Q & A Tuesday – Week 9
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!
Gundogan isn’t in the TOTW9 predictions, is there a chance he will make it? Or should we sell him?
There is still a chance he will make it. Some content that causes 85s like him to rise could help, too.
Would you buy 85’s at 6k?
They will go up eventually – it is just a matter of when. If we get an Icon SBC or something like that it could happen before BF. If not, it will probably be a longer hold.
Do you think there will be a sbc that requires a Numbersup player? Any point buying Neuhaus at 11k?
There is a good chance. However, given how little they moved for Rulebreakers requirements I don’t know if it would impact their price that much. Still safe since they quicksell for ~ 10k, though.
Thought about investing in RTTK Vidal? And maybe also a price prediction after upgrade?
He is already up about 15-20k since this past weekend. Would have been nice to get in then. He will probably increase a bit more leading up to the match next week.
I have a massive loss on my squad (ginola bought at 2 mil, mbappe at 1.7, kante at 500k) I don’t find myself good at the game and want to play with less expensive players and invest. When should I sell?
If you plan on reinvesting, I would just sell sooner than later. The opportunity cost of not having your coins in investments is more important than selling your team for a good price.
Who should i invest in rn? 100k budget
Top buys is the answer 90% of the time.
Hello, regular over-buyer here, have 45 Gundogan’s (caught at 6.8k to 7.1k on PC), the profit margin mentioned (~1k) should I list for 8k or is it based on the lowest platform (e.g. PS shows 6.5k so sell at 7.5k across all platforms)
Usually I would list for the profit target according to what the target buy price is. At this point, the only thing that will probably get him to that 1k mark is some SBC today. Cross your fingers we get that. Even if we don’t, I’d be selling before TOTW 9 is released tomorrow, even if it means you have to incur a small loss.
I’ve got 120k and can’t decide where to start with the trading any recommendations? I bought into the upa otw and waiting till Friday for that.
The TOTW 9 players I have in Top Buys are still safe plays. In general, investing is usually better on the weekend. A lot of stuff has already run in the past 24-48 hours, and I prefer not to FOMO into things.
Where do I find these Top Buys, Chief? I’m new around here, sorry =/
The Top Buys section of the website always has my updated favorite investment looks. It is in the top left corner on desktop, and past the posts on mobile.
Thoughts on getting in on a few RTTK players that are 2 wins away from upgrading and have easier matches this weekend (Alaba, Ramos, Dumfries, Grealish, Wijnaldum, Hakimi) and selling in the hype leading up to the next game
It is an interesting play – I’d probably focus more on cards that haven’t pumped if possible.
What do you mean haven’t pumped?
That they haven’t increased too much yet. There were a lot of live cards that have went up since the weekend.
Hmmm. Alright. They haven’t seemed to pop yet based on the price graphs so I may take a chance
What’s the best tip you can give to someone with 620k. I am an amateur when it comes to trading …
Probably just stick with something safe like the 86 rated informs I posted about from TOTW 9: https://www.futchief.com/2021/11/13/investment-totw-8/
I have Harry kane in my club that I’m looking to sell but it looks like he will get an inform this week. He is at 44k lowest bin, should I hold until he is oop?
High rateds like Kane have tumbled in the past couple days since the Icon SBC expired. If we get more desirable SBCs he could go up again, but no way of knowing that for sure.
I want top buy the new Jota. When is the best time? Do you think he will be cheaper tomorrow after rivals rewards?
Probably – I’d wait until closer to when he goes out of packs (Friday @ 6pm UK time).
What about investing in rb diaby and rttk mukiele since Nkunku bundesliga potm is coming? If barella and rttk tonali rose nicely due to insigne sbc.
It all depends how desirable and affordable he is. A lot of people already have his other SBC. Not sure how many people will complete this next one.
When is it a good idea to sell ones to watch cards? I noticed a dip today
I’d still sell in the hype before their matches this weekend.
Just packed van dijk, should I hold onto him for an investment or sell now
Nice pack! I’d just sell him. He might dip a bit going into BF, and I think there will be better uses for your coins this weekend.
Quick 20k profit picked up 700 coins like 20 mins ago all sold
I Got inform Clauss with Shadow on for 13750 should i sell him
You sniped him?
i got him last week on xbox he was down to around 14k
I’d probably just take your profit unless you are using him in your squad.
Hi Chief! When should i buy my team? (3 mln coins: Neymar, CR7, Messi etc.) Right before BF?
If you can wait until after TOTGS the week after BF, they will likely be cheaper then. We usually see a pretty substantial dip for that promo.
I want to get RTTK Rodrygo for my squad but I’m not sure best time to buy him. It seems almost certain he’ll get two upgrades at this point so I know his price is kinda inflated right now. Do you think he’ll go down after the upgrade (since people won’t be investing in him), go up, or stay the same?
Also any idea why SIF Vinicius’s price tanked?
Usable players in general have taken a hit with recent objectives and SBC content.
I’d probably just look to buy next weekend. In general I think usable players will decrease this week with objectives and SBC content.
I have a few investments right now. When do you think is the best time to sell?
I would sell the OTW investments in the hype before their next match. I would sell OTW Barkhuizen in the hype before EFL content is released on Tuesday.
