Just thought I would give the blog an update on how my Football Index trading and portfolio was going so far.
It has been about a month or so since I signed up to Football Index and so far I am really enjoying my trading and the experience so far.
Personally I find it a much more enjoyable and rewarding experience than traditional sports betting on the football. It can be quite fun researching and trying to unearth players of value.
I have made small profits on most of my serious trades, the profits being mostly canceled out by instant selling and comission fee’s due to some initial poor buys and decisions.
I had initially invested about £350 in cash, but have had to withdraw virtually the majority due to bills and Christmas coming up.
Leaving myself with a deposit of £82.61 in cash and a portfolio value currently of £100.09
The small profit is mostly because of managing to refer all 5 of 5 friends that you can refer for a £10 cash bonus, which I recently invested my last tenner in FC Augsburg striker Sergio Cordova.
I had made some poor decisions over the month, originally I had bought 47 futures in Samuel Chukwueze, which I should have held.
However, I ended up making a poor choice and instant selling at a loss to go on a flurry of stockpiling cheap goalkeepers with the announcement of the goalkeeper bonus dividends.
I did make a small profit on several goalkeepers such as Tomas Koubek of Rennes, Aleksandar Jovanović of Huesca, David Soria of Getafe and Robin Zentner of Mainz.
Looking back in hindsight I would have been better keeping the 47 futures in Samuel Chukwueze as he would have likely gained more value. After his goal and assist on Sunday night, he ended up rising about £0.37 pence in value in the space of hours.
Luckily I was on the computer at the time and instant sold my shares in Oleksandr Zinchenko of Manchester City and got back in on Samuel Chukwueze at 2.38p.
My main stumbling block at the moment is a lack of cash to invest into players. So I am going to have to play the slow game and see if these three trades can continue funding me more and more players.
I am hoping Kwon Chang-Hoon’s price continues to rise in the coming months as he is back in training now for Dijon and is thought to return to action around February.
Before his injury, Kwon Chang-Hoon got 11 goals from midfield for Dijon in Ligue 1, which prompted interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
My short-term goal is to hopefully try grow this £100 portfolio into a £500 investment and then to £1k.
Which might be me being slightly optimistic without relying on more deposits, but hopefully with some goal and assist dividends due, I can reinvest in another cheap player to bolster my portfolio.
Kwon Chang-Hoon – Dijon – £0.66p
Samuel Chukwueze – Villarreal – £2.38p
Sergio Cordova – FC Augsburg – £0.59p
Mohamed Salah – Liverpool
Oleksandr Zinchenko – Manchester City
Giorgi Chakvetadze – KAA Gent
Jadon Sancho – Borussia Dortmund
