  1. Very fair question mate. You have to remember that the Index was licensed and regulated by the gambling commission from the get go. Surely at some point their business model must’ve been scrutinised and deemed sustainable? If it was sustainable at the start, it certainly wasn’t once they implemented order books and were unable mint shares as consistently, coupled with promising big improvements like NASDAQ integration and not delivering, it seems we were only heading in one direction. I’m sure any platform of this type would now be under the microscope much more than FI was
  2. Proper numpty comment. Thousands of football fans have lost millions of pounds between them and you’ve popped in to gloat because you didn’t like the concept 2 and a half years ago. I’ll answer your question anyway, it went horribly for me, as I’ve already mentioned. There is however, loads of people who took profits and changed their lives, house deposits, new cars etc. Fair play to them. If I had any great need for the funds I’d invested then I could’ve taken profits at some point too. Other than the last few months where it’s clearly turned sour, I really enj
  3. Peach has summed it up really well. Money always felt relatively safe, the constant pumping of the product, it’s finances and future plans coupled with the fact they were in the middle of a massive marketing push made it feel like a very credible business. The Football Index badge is still on the shirts of Forest and QPR and doing the rounds on the pitch side advertising boards at nearly all premier league matches. This is not some dodgy backstreet bookie gone pop, it’s millions and millions of pounds up in smoke and I still can’t work out how they managed to screw it up so badly.
  4. Yep still stuck with pretty much all the money that I’ve invested in the last 3 years, luckily I hadn’t been enjoying it quite so much recently so had stopped putting money in for about the last 6 months. As has been said it’s a great concept but clearly in the wrong hands, what they’ve done in the last few months has been borderline criminal, saying the company was in a great position financially just a few weeks back, minting new shares in players at high prices based on the existing dividend structure before reducing dividends by about 80%. Looking at twitter, people (un
  5. What have people made of the Index since the implementation of the matching engine? I’d actually had a pretty profitable lockdown period surprisingly but now my portfolio has completely stagnated. There’s so much money to be made if you can just keep ploughing money into buy orders but if you need to sell to buy you’ve got bob hope.

  7. They’re protecting their heavily invested customers at the minute. If they’d kept 5% spreads across the board everyone would’ve sold up and values dropped through the floor. They’re making the best of a bad situation in my opinion. There’ll be a boom as soon as football is back no doubt.
  8. Just been told he’s bought a house in Tring. Could be wrong, could be nothing, could be on his way to reunite with NP at Watford 🤔
  9. Absolutely hate VAR, for me it’s completely ruining the game. Whether that’s watching at the ground and not really being able to celebrate a goal until the oppo have kicked off or watching on TV and seeing a perfectly good goal scored and knowing it’s going to be chalked off because the laws of the game are now a joke. I can completely accept decisions like last night, with the rules as they are it was clearly correct, probably not fair but definitely correct. What is not ok is the shear ridiculousness of some decisions nowadays, firstly on the pitch and then by the VAR, it’s abso
  10. Biggest tip is to spend some time getting to know the market before you invest too heavily. Put in a small amount, trade in and out of a few players and watch tutorials on how everything works before getting too involved. I track all my profit (and loss) on a spreadsheet which I find really useful. Sometimes I think I’m having a torrid time but then I zoom out and realise I’m actually in profit over the last week or month. It really is a great platform and still in its infancy I think. Advertising on TV and at Premier League games is going to help growth moving fo
  11. Did you sell? I do think he has the potential to rise as the Index itself grows but short term looks like a good decision if you got out in December.
  12. Always wonder why I don’t lump on players like him and Ziyech, both were available for around £2 2 weeks ago. If he joins Utd then he’ll probably be pushing £4 by the time he kits ups, any other Prem team sees him above £3 I guess. Just worry what his price does if he goes elsewhere or stays put.
  13. This will have been posted elsewhere no doubt but this caller on TalkSport had me in bits on the way back from Villa. Rodgers out
  14. Now does seem like a great time to get involved. In January last year they had £500 risk free promotion on, which they’re currently repeating. The market absolute flew so I’m hopeful it’ll be a similar story this year. Basically you can deposit up to £500 and if you lose money in the first month you just email customer service and they refund your losses, if you’re making money you carry on. Right now they’re also doing an improved referral scheme, which seems to be weighted to reward their longest standing users. Basically if you sign up (using the link and refer
  15. Also if you’re holding shares in Vardy I’d be a little concerned. His rise has been ridiculous, as soon as he doesn’t score in a game he’s gonna drop 25% minimum in my opinion. if he breaks his own record he’ll probably reach £2.50, if he doesn’t then he’ll plummet.
