What is a FIFA Mini Market Crash? How Should I Invest During a FIFA Market Crash?
A ‘Mini-Crash’ is when a certain player or type of player suddenly drop in value on the FUT market. You can use these in a similar way to a larger MARKET CRASH to make FIFA coins. The 3 most common causes of a mini crash are special player re-releases, an upgraded version of a player being released or unexpected SBC requirements.
A re-release increases supply. The panic this causes floods the market. Once a special player is out of packs, their value will recover. When we get a new version of a player, older special versions drop in value. This happens as people sell the older version to try and pick up the newly released version.
SBC releases can also cause a mini crash. If players that people had invested in are not required, everyone panics and tries to sell their investments ASAP. The POTM SBCs can often cause a mini crash as EA try their best to stop anyone investors making a profit.
Step-by-Step FIFA Trading Method Guide.
1. Identify something that could trigger a 'Mini-Crash'.
EA often releases ‘Best Of TOTWs’ or TOTW SBCs. This will instantly cause high end TOTW players to drop. Sometimes it’s when EA switch up the requirements for an SBC. People will panic sell their investments and undercutting ensues.
Whenever supply of a certain type of item is more than demand, prices of those items will drop.
2. Monitor any new FIFA Ultimate Team content that’s dropping.
The effect live content has on the market is key to this FIFA trading method. Keeping up to date with EA’s TWITTER is the best way to stay in the know!
3. Identify which players you should be buying.
When you see a player’s value crashing, ask yourself these questions.
Is this a META player? Is this player possible SBC fodder? Is this player high rated? Is this player usually rare on the market?
If the answer to one or more is yes, then it’s a good investment. A player’s value won’t recover for no reason. They must be usable in-game or in an SBC! If an SBC drops with unexpected requirements the market will be flooded as people panic sell. Use that panic to your advantage!
4. Sell when the players value recovers.
The holding time will be different for each player you buy. Some take a few hours to recover, others a few days. Usually the higher the rating, the quicker a card will recover. These players are rarer and being used more often in people’s FUT squads.
FIFA Trading Mistakes to Avoid.
- Over investing.
Don’t leave yourself with 0 FUT coins. You need to have some coins to use other trading methods while you wait for prices to recover.
- Panic selling.
If your players don’t rise in value straight away, just hold them. You never know when EA will drop something that sends the FUT market upwards.
