Just doesn't work for me. was buying player cheap and selling for more. Sold twice now the player wont sell and hes going cheaper.

can't seem to find or bid on any other player to flip. only have 1000 coins.

Trading clearly isn't for me.

    Dude, you've had 1 fail, I've had many, it's part of the learning curve, keep at it and you'll get it, it doesn't just happen overnight.

    When you have low coins you trade up the low market, buy for 300-350 list at 400/450-700/900
  • You can't expect it to be easy straight away or else everyone would have millions of coins?

    Yeah but if cards are regularly going at 350 without bid, why is someone going to buy one im selling at more??

    I bought for 550 sell for 700 no one is buying.

    So i dont see people people buying non selling 350 cards for more when there are plenty going for 350 unbought

    To be fair trading at this early stage is a little tricky as prices can be volatile.

    It can also be hard getting started if you don’t have a little bankroll. I got lucky with SBCs yesterday and packed Auba and a couple of others so I’m just investing my profits medium term in useful league/nation discard week 1 IFs. Week 1 IFs always go up nicely as they tend to be rarer, and there are some pretty decent cheap cards this week.

    For now keep see what you can get on min bid and flip for even just 100-200 more. It’s a grind but eventually you’ll be able to do bigger investments that are less time-consuming.

    Its the cards that slipped past the snipers you aim for, the popular league/nations with decent stats/rating

    I've literally never packed a card of value in 3 years everyday playing of fifa. Never.

    People saying things like oh tbey do the starter sbcs first to get players.

    But the starter sbcs are impossible for me to complete other than "lets get started".

    I thought a decent Prem Brazil card would get bought at 700 coins. Someone even bought mine at 900. Now i cant sell at 700.

    I bought Man U Prem Brazillian. Seems like valuable card to me. Links/league/team

    With coin amounts lower than 10k I'd personally only snipe. If you can't snipe, play some games and get yourself up to 50k. Then start doing discard if investments.

    Remember: It will only get easier the more coins you have

    This is so true. Sniping is the way to go with low coin totals. If you only have 1k, aim to pick up some cards worth 700-750 for 400-500. Any profit is great at that stage.

    Who is the player in question? Might be able to help you with why he dropped.

    My personal tip. Monitor the players for a while. Make a list of players that you want to scan. Repeat looking at their prices over several hours (up and downs). You'll know the prices of all players in your head and will know when a player is "kinda" lower than usual. That's when you can play your cards

    In my experience failing is how I learned to trade. Even now as an experienced trader I still occasionally get burned. It’s just about dusting yourself off and going again.

    Don't buy crap players. Find cards that will gets used in either starter squads or sbcs.

    Trade with the useable players.

    I've got my own methods now but one of my originals was to list my entire team. 1st team at the end of each days playing. List them overpriced. A few will sell so just replace or upgrade them.

    Trade with the players you would use.

    I figured he would sell. As he is in my squad, and i figured bare minimum would be ideal sbc candidate due to prem/brazil

    When people say "discard" do they mean quick sell or minimum bid??

    Discard is buying right over quick sell value, no risk especially with IFs
