Reasoning for Investment: This weekend I released the first TOTW Watch for FIFA 23. Staying up to speed on who might make it into the featured team each Wednesday can have huge implications for investing. There are two different things to focus on – gold cards who may go out of packs, or live cards that will get upgraded.

The typical price movement of a live card who could get upgraded with TOTW is as follows:

  1. Price goes up immediately following the TOTW worthy performance
  2. Price dips down a few hours after the performance, just above previous levels
  3. Price goes up on Monday/Tuesday after TOTW predictions are released (so long as they are included)
  4. Price goes down on Wednesday when the TOTW is released (regardless of whether they are included or not)

It is best to try and hop on the investment train in Step 2, but be sure to get out before Step 4. There should be ample OTW investing opportunities early on in FIFA 23, so try to get in on them on the weekend before the masses buy after seeing TOTW predictions Monday/Tuesday.
