What is a FIFA Market Crash? How Can I Make FUT Coins During a Market Crash? How Should I Invest During a FIFA Market Crash?
‘Market Crash’ is a phrase that strikes fear unto the FUT trading community. Every year we have the big markets crashes. ‘Black Friday Market Crash’ videos on YouTube mark the first one of every FIFA game. TOTY, TOTS and certain SBC releases also see the market take huge nose dives.
While most FUT players are panicking you can use the sudden market downturn to your advantage. A market crash is a great time to invest your FUT coins. Almost every player is down in value during a big market crash, meaning you can make coins on lots of players.
You should be thinking about how far into the game cycle we are and what your budget is.
Players that are great investments during early market crashes are not going to be the best pickups later in the game. The further into the game cycle, the more META cards are available. The key to profitable FIFA investing during a market is to pick up players that are in demand.
Step-by-Step FIFA Trading Method Guide.
1. Identifying something that could cause the market to drop.
The yearly crashes include Black Friday, TOTS and TOTY. There are others every year. During FIFA 18 we saw perhaps the biggest Ultimate Team crash we’ve ever seen when the world cup mode launched. It’s usually just before and during the market flooding caused by more people opening packs than normal.
2. Monitor player prices and the FIFA market in general.
Keeping a close eye on the state of the FUT market is a must for anyone wanting to make coins. Knowing the Ultimate Team market means you can not only see when the market starts crashing, but also when player prices hit their lowest point.
3. Identify which players you should be buying.
META players are the key. No matter where we are in the game cycle, people want to use those players in their squad. If the price of a META player is crashing, you can almost guarantee they will increase in value when the market starts to recover.
4. Set a target price and buy when players hit that.
When you think a player has hit their lowest value, buy buy buy! We recommend that you have a varied list of targets and know in advance the price you want to pay for them. The more players you’re monitoring, the more likely you are to identify a good FUT investment.
5. Sell when the FUT market recovers.
Once the rush of supply ends, the value of META players will shoot up. Remember prices may not return to pre-crash prices for a while, but when you’re making a profit sell those players.
FIFA Trading Mistakes to Avoid.
- Missing the best time to buy. The ‘Pre-Crash’.
‘The crash before the crash’ or ‘Pre-Crash’ are terms that describe the initial drop in prices caused by people selling off their players in preparation for a FUT market crash. This can often be the best time to buy as prices are lower than during the market crash itself.
- Panic selling.
If your players don’t rise straight away and you don’t desperately need your FUT coins back, then just hold them. You never know when EA will drop something that will increase their value and make you a ton of FIFA coins.
