Todays Blog Post takes a different turn to most of my usual posts. I like to normally discuss players, transfers etc. This post is my opinion on the Future of Football Index.
In Adams last Q&A, he mentioned a rough figure of around 100,000 members past/present that had traded on the Index to date.
This is not a large number by any means. In terms of bookmakers (Sports Bets) studies have shown that half of the UK population has placed bets in their lifetime.
There are around 70 Million people in the United Kingdom, meaning around 35 million will have placed bets.
The great news for traders is that the marketing department of Football Index are setting their sights on this, with targeted advertisements on websites such as WhoScored, a website where many gamblers would visit to look for statistics before placing a bet.
Football Index has a lot of room for growth, it’s only 2 years old and offers a unique way to ‘gamble’, by allowing members to purchase virtual stocks and shares in their favourite players.
I am going to explain why Stock Market Traders will soon be flurrying over to the Football Index.
The Stock Market operates in the same way as Football Index
For existing traders, Football Index will not be new to them. This means that they can take advantage from their experience and be more confident moving forward.
The strategies that are implemented on Football Index are no different to strategies on traditional Stock Markets, apart from the fact that Media Buzz and Performance Buzz aren’t the dividends!
I actually hold shares in Royal Mail, when I started trading I thought it would be really exciting like on the Wolf of Wall Street, however, it actually zapped the life out of me, as it’s a very slow process.
Football Index however, this is a refreshing platform. I love Football, I love money, the two go hand in hand!
With Football Index, dividends are on a daily basis, whereas with my shares (for example), I only get these shares every 3 months, if the business has been performing well.
My Shares equate to around £45, from an initial £1700 investment.
The share are worth around £2,050 now, with around £180 gained from shares.
I invested £1,700 into Royal Mail, which has returned:
- £180 in dividends
- £350 profit (If I sold today)
If I invested £1,700 in Neymar at the same time, when he was priced at £4.51:
- Received 377 Shares
- £2 R.O.I Per Share = £754
- Price Increase from £4.51 -> £10 = £5.49 Per share. This equates to £2,069.
- Total Profit = £2,823. (If sold today)
Stock Market equivalents
Neymar is just one example of an Impressive Increaser… plenty others have also increased.
The same thing has happened with the crypto market, Bitcoin went from £2,000 – £10,000 in the matter of months. However, I have zero knowledge in cryptocurrencies, so I’ll leave that one there.
- Volkswagen share price doubled over-night, when it was announced Porsche owned part of the company.
One of the leading factors of Share Price is News. It breaks fast & the people who know first often have the upper hand. This can causes a trade-explosion (so to speak) as most traders want to get their hands on Stock at the lowest price possible. When all traders place Buy Orders for the same stock, the price naturally increases, as experienced Football Index traders will recall with the famous friday 25p promos.
Stock Prices on Football Index can fall aswell as rise, this season we saw the Decline of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Previously, he traded at around £6.00 and was nominated the KING OF THE INDEX.
He suffered an injury during a football match, which he still hasn’t really recovered from.
Current Price : £0.85.
Football Index is just ‘another’ trading platform, however it’s also the first of it’s kind.
There are currently around 100,000 members, but it’s still very much in it’s infancy.
When it becomes more popular, share prices will increase alongside.
One things for sure, we will be looking back at this post stating how we wish we had purchased more Neymar at £10.00.
Although I must admit, as of 06/03/2018, I Own Zero.
The greatest thing about Football Index is that dividends are paid out on a daily basis.
This is what makes the platform fantastic. As I explained above, the Royal Mail shares I held only paid out every three months, also it was only a £40 payout!
Dividends are set with a certain structure, depending on how many teams are playing.
On a Maximum payout day, you can see a player earn £0.23 payout per share.
Bare in mind, there are some players that are tradeable from as little as £0.25, so the return on investment potential is amazing!
Even on Neymar, this would equate to a 2.3% R.O.I, from one game alone!
I believe we will soon be seeing the transition of traders from the Stock Markets to the Football Index.
The return on investment potential is amazing, it’s also a far more enjoyable system and allows for Football fans to use their knowledge of the game to profit.
All a trader would need is someone like Neymar hit just one £0.23 performance during the season, a 2.3% R.O.I is much higher than anything the banks are currently offering!
Plus there are cheaper players with great chances of full payouts, Dybala Et Al!
