Football Index Announcement 10.03.20

Football Index are offering us a BONUS on net buys up to £1,500. Football Index are also DOUBLING ALL DIVIDENDS until April 3rd 2020 and have lowered the threshold on the number of matches required for the different Match Days (Less games required for a Bronze match day etc) until the end of the season.

Full details of this announcement can be found here: https://trade.footballindex.co.uk/marketupdate-mar20-yda42v/


The market has recently shifted towards the top end and this is nothing to be concerned about. The market often works in cycles and with more money being put into lower priced players over the last 3/4 months, money has returned to the top as traders have seen value in some top end players. Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho's rises perhaps showed the market how much capital appreciation can also be earned from higher priced players leading to a knock-on effect in other high priced players.


There may also be a lot of planning for if EURO 2020 is cancelled with money going into players likely to mop up plenty of media dividends over summer if this was to be the case.


It is very difficult to predict when the market will shift from one end to another and it can be risky to start instant selling shares to profit from a shift as we don't know how long focus will be on top end players for.


Furthermore, whilst a bonus is active, we often see even more recency bias at play with players who have been in good form recently rising the most without a consideration for dividend returns over a longer period of time. Avoiding buying players who have risen already considerably during a bonus period can avoid losses once the bonus period is over.


It is often wise to: Stick with quality, fairly young players who are likely to improve their dividend return in the future and appear great value at their current price.


Although, short term it may be frustrating watching holds suffer whilst other players rise but, longer term the top end of the market rising is positive for the platform. Following the dividend announcement the top end rose significantly whilst the lower end suffered. However, in the months that followed, lower priced players started to grow significantly as well. This is very likely to be the case again.

With double dividends and a smaller amount of teams needed for various match days, we have already seen many players rise following this announcement as the dividend returns on offer are huge.


Match Days are likely to gain even more attention now until April 3rd and with what is currently such a reactive market, we may see some huge rises in strong performers.
