FIFA 17 Trading Tips and Tricks When Starting FUT
Here are the 20 best FIFA 17 trading tips we selected especially for the first days of the game:
Start playing as soon as possible
The sooner you start playing FIFA 17, the bigger will be your chances of being successful.
In the beginning the market will be very unstable. If you know what you are doing, this is the best time to make great deals. It’s just a question of knowing how to identify the opportunities and being able to predict how the market is going to develop. You will need time to do it, so don’t miss the FUT Web App early access available for FUT 16 players who have created a Security Question and Answer on FUT console before August 1, 2016.
Take time to study the market
There are no magic formulas. Really. If you want to make many coins, you will have to work for it.
The most basic idea about trading is selling at a price that is superior to the one you paid for. If you buy a card hoping to find someone to buy it for more coins than you bought it for, you’ll never succeed. Things don’t just happen like this. The market is somewhat predictable. You’ll have to study it to start recognizing a price that is below the balanced price and to predict the price that the demand is willing to offer.
It may be a good idea to track the prices with the help of FUTBin which gives you the lower BIN for each card. However, don’t forget that prices are always changing.
Focus on a parcel of the market
There are thousands of cards in FUT 17. It’s impossible for someone to have good control of all them.
Choose a branch in which you feel comfortable, study it and keep yourself updated about the changes that happen in this specific market. It’s going to be a lot easier to know about what prices you should buy or sell cards. Remember that being fast is a very important characteristic a trader must have: being fast in order to make a move and not miss the opportunity, being fast selling to increase the number of sales, being fast to notice the changes of the market, etc…
Your transfer list must always be full
Every time you don’t have your transfer list full, you are losing coins. You are missing the chance of making profit. The more cards you have for sale, more you’ll sell and more profit you’ll get.
The first thing to do is to redeem the EAS FC catalogue items to improve the size of your transfer list. Then, you just need to adjust your prices according to your sales. If you are selling to fast, it’s because you can increase the price a bit more. If you can’t sell, then it’s because you need to reduce the price.
Give your cards as much exposure as possible
The more visibility you give to your cards, the more profit you’ll get.
Most players, when searching in the market, don’t go beyond the 60 minutes page. For that reason, you should try to have your cards available the higher time possible between the first hour auctions. To do that, you just need to list them for an hour and re-list them for another hour when the auction expires. When it’s not possible, you should define the auction duration according to the time you’ll be away. For example, if you’re going to sleep, define the duration to 6 hours. Doing that you’ll make the cards stay available for a bigger amount of time on the market and you’ll be able to renew them when you wake up.
Get ride of useless cards
When starting FUT 17 you will have many of useless cards that no one wants to buy. Quick selling them is an option but before that you can try a simply trick: put them on auction with a 150c start price and a 200c buy now price.
You will see that you will sell much more cards and a few of them for the BIN price. Although, you should always check if it’s best to have these cards on auction or if you should just discard them in order to spare space on your transfer list for other cards that might give you bigger profits.
Money makes more money
When you start FUT, you will need coins for your first investments. That’s why we suggest to sell all your cards, except obviously the untradeable ones. But it doesn’t mean you have to do it at sale prices. Although time is money you don’t want to stay with your actives for stuck long, verify if there isn’t any valuable card you could sell for superior price than expected.
The cards you’ve sold are already good enough for a good start but if you can gather some more coins your growth in the game will be even faster. As soon as possible, complete the manager tasks and buy the EASFC items from the FIFA 17 catalogue, especially balls and kits because they have high discard values. Remember: never have all your coins stopped. Reinvest your profits. Money makes more money.
Be ready on the right times
In the first days of the market, which coincides with the first days of the FUT Web App, the market is really scarce. In this time, it is really difficult to find good deals because all the gamers have experience from the previous years and because the cash flow in the market is too low. However, as soon as new gamers start playing everything changes. That’s why you can’t miss the game release date, for example. You should also put a few coins aside to these times, since it is really easy to find cards at half price.
Make good use of the filters
Every good trader knows how to use filters efficiently. They are more important in the first days after the game’s release date because there are more people selling cards below their normal price. Tweaking the prices, quality and league will help you to return quality players than are selling cheap on a buy now or bid and go completely under the radar. Silver players with high pace stat and/or from Barclays Premier League are usually good targets.
The goal is to find cards on sale before anyone else, especially if they have a low BIN, but it may be a good idea to bid on cards that other players usually don’t bid on. To beat the competition, the idea is to bid on cards that players usually only bid at the end of the auction. Your offers will have more chances to not be exceeded. Differentiate yourself in the filters that you use and you may have a whole market just for you.
Find good deals in the minute 59
This one is very old but it still works very well in the first days, while autobuyers are not working yet.
By default, the duration of any item that is auctioned is one hour. This means that the last cards to be put into circulation can be found on the 59th minute of bids’ list. If you update the page several times, you can find the cards on sale and buy them. Obviously, you will need to use filters to select a market sample that you know well but it can be very profitable if you spend time applying the 59th minutes method.
Use the discard prices for your own good
As you know, all cards have a discard price higher than 0 if they are not untradeable. When you discard a card, you receive a small amount of coins. It is small, but it serves as a standard for the market’s minimum prices. Before price ranges, many people din’t know the discard prices and assigned prices to their cards lower than the ones they could get if they discarded them. Now with price ranges, is much more difficult to take advantage from these people. But if you are smart enough, you can workaround it. One good example is to use the ‘Rain of Coins’ method, created by our friend Silvio Teixeira and used by thousands of players all over the world with great success. It is great for players with low/medium budget that want to avoid risks, the profile everyone has when starting FUT 17. This method is based on the fact that all rare gold players with a chemistry style are sold when their price is lower than 800 coins. This is because the minimum discard price for a rare gold player is 300. As the cards originally came with basic style, who want to stick another must pay a minimum of 300 coins. The difference for the 800 coins is justified by the fact that many people do not mind paying a little extra to not have to search for the style they want to apply to the player.
Buy low, sell higher
Trading has no big secrets. If you want to make coins, you will need to buy low and sell higher. As simple as that. You should do during the whole season since the first day.
Pick a player from a popular league and popular position, like a striker from EPL, and check in a database like FUTBin which is his minimum BIN. You will be able to buy him cheaper (BID) and make a small profit. Just be sure you track his minimum BIN several times, because the prices change too often in the first days.
Invest in featured tournament requirements
This one only works if EA releases featured tournaments, something that usually doesn’t happen in the first weeks. Maybe this year, they will do it in a different way. Or not.
Featured tournaments are becoming more and more popular and you can take advantage from it. Often, specific featured tournament requirements will specify players from a certain league, nation or type. Find the most popular players which fit the requirements, buy them as close to the announcement as possible and stock up as much as possible. Their prices will increase a lot and you will be able to make a good profit. To know the current and upcoming featured FIFA 17 tournaments, add this page to your favourites.
Invest in good shape players
The FUT market is a worldwide market which reacts in real-time to the real-world performances. If you are a football lover and watch real-world matches, you should think about investing in players that are playing well. A hype bubble usually occurs during the game, where the player peaks inside 90 minutes. Although the player will often remain inflated after the game, the greatest profits can be made inside 90 minutes. You need to monitor the market and be quick enough to react to what is happening and in that way beat the competition. It is a quick way to make coins which is becoming more and more popular.
Spot players at 100% of their Price Range Percentage
We don’t like price ranges either, but we will have to live with it, right? At least, we can do it in the right way.
This is one of the best FIFA 17 trading tips you can follow. Go to FUTBin website and filter players for their price range percentage (PRP). Try to find players at 100% in the transfer market and buy them. These cards are not being sold by a higher price because there is a upper limit. EA is fast to adjust price ranges, so next time this happens, they will be selling for significantly more and you will be making a good profit. Prices are very unstable in the first days, which means that EA will have to adjust the price ranges more often. You just need to be faster than the other players.
Start by investing in low risk cards
For your first investments after the game release, we recommend your first cards to cost between 150 and 300 coins that you can sell with a profit of about 50%. The risk is really low and you will be avoiding the price ranges restrictions.
Remember that it’s very important never to have coins or cards on hold. Keep buying and selling several of these cards, to generate profit all the time.
Choose the right targets
It’s easier to be well succeed if you choose the right targets. First, you should avoid cards everyone is listing because it will be more difficult to win the auction. Secondly, be sure you picked a card with high card weight since you will be able to buy and sell several of them in a single hour. Finally, choose low risk cards.
For example, every single year we start by purchasing managers. It’s easy to remember their prices and there are always thousands in the transfer market. Besides that, everyone is focused in players cards, which means that the concurrence is lower and people sell them cheaper more often. However, pay attention to their prices behaviour because two weeks after the game release date their prices will drop a lot.
Adjust your strategy to the players prices behavior
Because the cash flow in the market is too low, prices in the early access will be much cheaper than after the FIFA 17 release date.
If you have enough coins, it may be a good idea to invest in popular players. They will rise in price by the biggest margin as other players will want them for their teams. When demand increases at a greater rate than supply, prices go up.
If you’re one of the lucky few to receive one of the most players in a pack, which is highly unlikely, do not sell them. In a few weeks they’ll be worth several times as much and you can capitalize on your asset.
Invest in position change and chemistry style cards
When do you think players apply more position change and chemistry style cards? When they are building their squads or when they already played hundreds of matches? Yes, the answer is easy.
You can invest in these cards or you can also search for popular players with popular positions and chemistry styles applied to them, being sold by their basic price. They are more valuable and you will be able to make profit with them.
