Are Trackers still worth it?
Memphis Depay has proven himself amongst the very best on Football Index, only Ronaldo and Messi are the forwards who have performed better.
Mohamed Salah has returned to the Premier League and Torn it up!
My views over the fire-sale of eliminated players.
World Class Forward Paulo Dybala has a serious problem on his hands. The Argentina Coach doesn’t know how to utilise him as he plays so similar to Messi, there are many reports he won’t be going to the World Cup.
This post is quite short, as I am getting it up in a hurry for my followers.
Today I am focused on the mysterious Treble Media Days.
What I have noticed in the past 48 hours, is that some traders are potentially swapping their portfolio, week in week out.
There’s nothing bad about this, it’s a little like ‘Fantasy Football’, however, it can be very risky.
Of which I explain below.
Traders are addicted to profit, which is not a bad thing.
A lot of money comes in the form of dividends, mostly Performance Buzz, as there are 4 Ways to win.
So, when the Performance Buzz is non existent, traders are treated to TREBLE MEDIA DIVIDENDS.
This causes lots of traders to ‘chase the dividends’, essentially removing their whole portfolio of players which could win Performance Buzz, replacing these with players who could win Media Buzz.
Unfortunately, there are very few players who have a great chance of earning PB & MB, Neymar, Harry Kane, Messi, Ronaldo (the elite players).
So, for any non elite performance buzz player, you may have experienced a drop in your portfolio.
Daniel Parejo. This man is a maestro in midfield, however, he doesn’t attract any Media Value at all. RESULT: £0.41 LOSS
This is the perfect example of a Portfolio switch. Not all traders are patient, they want to win buzz daily.
Chasing Media dividends can be a very risky strategy.
The dividend cut-off is 14:00PM, which means traders have plenty of time to see who has scored points early-on, enabling them to Trade and potentially win dividends if the player holds his spot.
This example is Luke Shaw.
Early this morning he had already scored around 460 points, which is quite a lot for Pre-11AM news. If this was to continue, surely he would win Media Buzz for the day.
This is also what the Dividend hunting traders thought, so they decided to put some money into Luke. I will describe below the Risks.
- Luke Shaw started the day at £1.23 per future.
- He Peaked at £1.93, just before the 2pm dividend deadline.
- Mo Salah and Neymar have since shot up the rankings. Salah leads Shaw by 90 points, Neymar trails Shaw by 230 points.
- Since the rise of Mo Salah to #1, Luke Shaw has dropped from £1.93 to £1.47. This is a £0.46 Loss for anyone who got in near the top.
- If you owned him this morning at £1.23, you aren’t in a bad position as you’re £0.23 in profit per share, with the potential dividends.
- Since taking first place in Media Rankings, Salah has risen around £0.17. This could be money moving from Shaw/Salah.
The risky thing about trading in this way, is that the crashes can be devastating.
If you get on near the top end of the price, you may be in for a shock once the dividends have been paid out, as this is when some traders decide to cash out and jump onto the next media prospect.
Things to consider when buying a player that could potentially be knocked out of the Elite Competitions.
