With the IPD’s you get for 30 days when you buy a player, is there a way to continually get them from the same player throughout the season?

Sell and rebuy. I don't do it myself, you'll rack up a lot of commission like that.

Suppose it could be worth while if you hold a large amount of a player and he gets good IPD in a month.

Bought Van de Beek at the worst time. He's gone down 12p. Schoolboy error. Still think he could go up though. He's been the real revelation of this Ajax side for me - was well documented how good de Ligt, de Jong and Ziyech were.

Nothing to worry about. Second leg next week, he’s bound to be in the Dutch squad for the Nations League, potentially a Champions League Final and he’s bound to be linked with clubs every window now till he moves. 

Hazard, Neymar and Bale have all dropped in my portfolio since the summer bonus pay out. Annoying seeing minuses and not seeing as much profit as before but I’m not worried.

I'm not worried at all, my wins on the likes of Skov, Maddison, Tielemans etc... will pretty much guarantee me profit because I won't buy anyone that'll drop significantly. Even the Golovin loss which was a bit of a gamble gone wrong ultimately pales into insignificance compared to the profits the others brought in.

As a side note I think Holland to win Euro 2020 is a good shout.

I have hit a brick wall in the last week. Had a look at FI forums and thankfully it seems a common thing.

Same. Losses on some big names by FI standards but I’m just being patient.

Yeah some minor drops after a massive period of growth...it's normal. I was down about £100 in a few days but I spotted Reine-Adelaïde being linked with Lille last night, bought 1000, then woke up this morning to a £160 rise in my portfolio :)

You need to get tipping us about these French ones!

Van de Beek looking every inch a stupid buy. Could rise again yet but I timed that one terribly and I worried at the time I had.

Would you bother buying Celik from Lille? He's only 40p.

Yep I really like Celik. I think I saw stories saying he could move this summer as well. If not Lille are in the CL anyway so he's a good player to hold.

Tempted to lob quite a bit at him, he's been quite highly rated and is cheap as hell. Might be worth another £50.

Done it. 123 shares @ 42p a share. That'll do.

Are Lille a club in general to follow? Their recruitment seems really impressive.

I have gone back down a bit in the past week but I do think ultimately if you are fundamentally buying players that are surely going to grow in stature (like I say, Norwich's full backs) then I can't see how you won't profit in the long run.

Van de Beek has been a shit buy for me so far but I'm hoping the nations league sees an improvement.

Thoughts on Ignatius Ganago, @...Dan?

He's had a few chances in the first team this season because of Nice's lack of strikers...they'll strengthen in the summer and I think he'll get less game time. Haven't really seen enough of him to judge his quality and potential.

Yeah definitely. Luis Campos, the guy who built that great Monaco side a few years ago, is the guy behind Lille's transfer business now.

I've been on him a while now because I was sure he'd move and I really like him. Rumours starting to surface now.

A lot of the more vocal players on Twitter have lost it over the recent positional changes. They all say "I'm still up by a couple of hundred this weekend but ..... " and then tweet Football Index asking to be refunded for their losses this weekend xD

I'm a bit annoyed you cant trade abroad. If somebody like De Ligt transfers whilst I'm away at the end of the month i could end up losing serious money.

Not that it’s any use now but I imagine we will get to a point where you can put stops on futures, so if they reach a certain pre-determined price it automatically sells on your behalf. 

I had this last summer when I ventured into the Index. I bought some Kepa and had a busy couple of days at work and with a couple of other things, completely missing the confirmation that he’d signed for Chelsea and the subsequent crash when people got off him.

Well done Dan, great stuff.

I'm still learning. On a 15% profit in two months. I sold Haland on a small profit because I didn't want to hold players outside the top five leagues, the day after he scored some insane amount of goals and his value went mad. Also let Joaquin Correa and Mikel Oyarzabal go on good profits because I didn't foresee them leaving there clubs and now they're linked every other day.

I've sold my shares in Federico Chiesa, Dani Olmo and Houssem Aouar just before I go away on holiday as they're on a steep rise because of the U21 tournament that may not be sustainable. I've sold on Rodri and AWB as I think they'll leave whilst I'm away too. I've made pretty healthy profits (20% to 30%) on all of them since mid April so even if they rise a little I'm not too fussed. If De Ligt or Ndombele complete moves next week I'll lose my 💩

I've had some good success so far. Hysaj and Butland for under 40p in the anticipation they'll move has worked out very well. I didn't experiment on Neymar/Pogba (which unless you have the money to buy hundreds of shares) looks like a good thing. Selling Grealish after the first goal of the playoff final was a very good move as his value dropped off a cliff after that. Kai Haevertz made me a lot of money as I sold as soon as Brandt left Leverkusson.

I'm going to rethink my strategy come late August as at the moment my portfolio is geared towards players under 25 who are likely to move up a level this or next summer. With IPD the anticipation to become a quick trader is tempting when certain teams have ideal fixtures but that could eat up a lot of time. I'm down to 25 players now and ideally I want to invest the money I have in about 15 players.

Mine.

Mine's doing really well but I almost wonder if I could speed things up a bit. I've considered big sales in the past just to buy my next lot of players simply because I'm making profit on nearly everyone I buy so my strategy clearly works.

The bizarre one lately is Joao Felix has tumbled. I'm still making money but he's dropped by about 50p in a week. Is that because he's moving to Atletico and thus ruling out a move to one of the absolute top drawer sides? (Which isn't my own opinion, just the collective)

What tactic are you using? I'm worried we will see a dip early July and people will move away from transfer rumours. Which is what I've based nearly all my investments on 😂

Regarding Felix, Tomas Lemar has had his creativity cut short by Simeone. Plus Griezmann has always been just over the two pound mark. I have little to none knowledge on match day dividens but I'm assuming it favours possession based football with high goals? I guess people are worried it's the wrong move for him?

I have a grand total of two shares I purchased him when I first started playing that are -0.16. I hope all it's going to take is one good Champions League week to see his stock change. The same with Rodrygo, who I bought a share in not realising he had signed for Real Madrid already 😂

Oh shit, you sold Olmo before the Euros? xD

Are you still in profit on Ndombélé or no?
