Taking on the FIFA 17 market can be daunting – but it doesn’t need to be.
In fact, it just takes a few pointers to put you on course to make some serious cash.
Follow these four steps and you could make up to 20,000 coins a day – without resorting to cheats.
Step 1: Find ‘hidden’ in-demand players
Don’t go for strikers and midfielders, rather find a player in ‘less popular’ positions such as left or right back.
Just like in real world stocks, it’s all about demand and supply.
A tip is to start your hunt in the Premier League before moving to La Liga.
Step 2: Calculate the post-tax Buy-It-Now price
First, find the average Buy-It-Now price – which can be found in the card’s menus.
You want to be able to make a profit by selling it for the average Buy-It-Now price – not the highest price it’s reached in the past.
A good tip is to deduct “EA tax”, which is five per cent.
So, multiply the Buy-It-Now average by 0.95 to find the after-tax price, then add a couple of hundred coins on to it.
Step 3: Get bidding
Do this fast! You need to be first to give yourself the best chance. Put a load of bids on the same player across multiple pages on the Transfer Market list.
The more you put on, the more chance you have of bagging one. Just keep your profit margins in mind.
To get an edge, use the FIFA Web App – which is easier and more responsive than the console interface.
Snipe players in the 59th minute mid morning rather than peak time (7pm) on a weeknight.
Oh, and stay away from the weekends – thousands more gamers will be monitoring the market.
Step 4: Sell, sell, sell
If you’ve managed to get some great players on the cheap (As in, you’ve used the above calculation to confirm you’ll make a profit) then it’s best to flip these straight away.
Make sure to set the Buy-It-Now price as average – then sit back and wait for bids to exceed that figure.
Remember, stay patient.
Don’t try and make huge profits on players – take your time and build up profit slowly.
