High Risk Investing

Gambling your FIFA coins with some risky, but potentially rewarding, strategies (3 methods)


1. FIFA 19 OTW Players

One to Watch cards were introduced in FIFA 17. These transfers would get an upgrade if they earned a spot in the TOTW. Coins are made when your OTW player has a goal or assist in his match. Buyers quickly swallow up any cards listed on the market in hopes the player will get a stat boost the following Wednesday.

Like other strategies, you can sell on hype for this as well. Say Naby Keita has a big match on Saturday. Buy his card on Monday and sell just before the match. It will go up for two reasons 1. Last minute investors will buy hours or minutes before the match and 2. People will want to use him for WL. You might miss out on profit if he scores, but you also don’t have to worry about him potentially getting injured and lose big.



2. Premier League POTM

This card is released the first or second Friday of the month as a set of four SBC’s that you can complete to get a special player. A bit more risky as the SBC’s are hard to predict, but you can definitely hit big if you pick the right players. For example, Harry Kane’s 89 rated inform nearly quadrupled in price after he was required for the December POTM SBC.

Also, if you get ahead of it early enough it is possible to make profits on hype alone. Buy players 2-3 weeks out and sell the day before the release. A safer bet, but a sure bet.


3. Old Inform Technique

This is a technique for later in the FIFA trading season as players begin to get multiple informs. When the new TOTW comes out, many players panic sell IF’s if the player they have gets a new one. After looking at multiple cases, usually the low point of this occurs around 2 hours following TOTW release on Twitter (1 hour before they are released in packs). For example, in the 2 hours after Martial 2IF was released, his 1IF dropped to 145,000. However, 8 hours later, it’s price is up to 175,000, and by Friday it rose to 200K+.


Sometimes, the price of a player doesn’t rebound that quickly. In those situations, you can either choose to sell or gamble and hold on to the player for another week. Nainggolan’s 1IF was a good example of this from last year.
