Bought for: PS4 150k XBOX 150k PC 170k

Highest price: PS4 185k XBOX 210k PC 225k

Profit: PS4 26k XBOX 50k PC 44k

ROI: PS4 17% XBOX 33% PC 26%

Reasoning for Investment: Expensive investments (50k+) are quite inconsistent. The ROI you make on them is typically nominal, too, since it is more difficult for the priciest players to go up a greater percentage. And when they do rise enough to make it worth it, it usually takes a fair amount of time.

Live card investing for TOTW is one exception. For the past several years these have followed a consistent pattern of rising considerably on Monday/Tuesday when TOTW predictions are released (so long as they are included). I tend to be picky when it comes to expensive investments, but live cards who may get a TOTW spot, like HL Reece James from FIFA 22, are one exception. For those who can be bothered to grind buying a player in masses, this is a good investing strategy to keep tabs on.
