The classic TDW trading at FIFA Ultimate Team is a very simple and secure way to top up your account balance with FIFA Coins in a short amount of time. The new team of the week comes every Wednesday evening. The best thing to do is buy the players between Monday / Tuesday the following week or just above the BIN price and just leave them on the Tradepile.
As you can see from the two graphics, the prices rise as soon as the player can no longer be drawn in the packs. For this method, use players in popular leagues or a popular name and with an adequate rating (e.g. overall rating> 80) so that you can ensure that these players are in demand. Buy players who are just above the Discard price on Monday / Tuesday, i.e. between 10,500 - max. 12,000 FIFA coins. If you follow these basic rules, you can often look forward to value increases of 30-50% in 1-2 weeks. With this method, you can earn FIFA Coins very easily and without any risk.
Tip: Combine TDW trading with overpriced selling to get rid of one or the other player at very high FIFA Coin prices before their market price has risen accordingly. In the course of our trading blog we will explain overpriced selling to you in more detail what needs to be considered and which risks you should definitely avoid.
FUT Trading Tips
Of course, other special cards are also suitable for FIFA Ultimate Team. It is important that the players do not cost a lot of FIFA Coins, but are close to the discard price. The method works across all console platforms. Whether XBOX One Coins or PS4 FIFA Coins, you can use this method on both consoles without any problems. Only PC Coins are more difficult to trade because the market is much smaller here.
Next: Cluster Trading
Our trading guide tells you how to gain the most difficult FIFA 20 coins in FIFA 20. This means that you're a FIFA player. You started an online game and saw the opposing team. The team is full of icons and players like, Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar - as special cards. Beating the exclusively high offence of these opponents is important. In the game you notice that the gamer is not playing that well. The opposite is often the case. You counter the opponent, you have more possession of the ball and a lot more chances to score. The ball will not go into the goal. Sometimes you hit the post, the other time the opposing icon keeper owns uncatchable balls and last but not least, the Prime Icon Moments Ferdinand "automatically" grabs the shot and prevents an actually safe goal. In return, it comes as so important. 2-3 One Touch Passes in the top on Ronaldo or Messi and the bell rings. Differentiate from impossible angles just hit the goal. In such situations, you no longer understand the world. At the same time, however, you doubt your team and think about how it would work if you yourself had a team of top players.
FIFA has become a lottery in recent years. More and more FIFA players spend money in FIFA points to draw packs to make FIFA coins. Another one is buying FIFA coins. Many other players who do not want to invest real money then think that they are at a disadvantage. Some ask themselves whether there is a way to build a dream team in FIFA without spending real money. Thank God there are many different ways!
Everyone can make FIFA coins!
The goal of any FUT player should be to continuously improve their team. This makes it possible to play and play more fun with a strong team. However, even if many coins are paid to buy the best top players for themselves.
There are too many trading methods that can be used to generate a considerable amount and coins without large funds and without previous knowledge. In order to be your first contact and to show that it is a good one and that all trading methods are easy to implement, I will show you some of them:
Make FIFA coins using the 0 method
A very important and easy FIFA trading method. This is where you buy popular 84 players (top 5 leagues and popular nations) and then place them on the transfer market for 7,000 starting price and 10,000 buy now price (BIN) for 1 hour. The sense is as follows: These players have a minimum starting price of 700. Many will not look up the sale price when selling and put the player on the market for 700 - 10,000 to bid. With the additional 0 you often do not see the difference and offer the player 7,000 instead of 700. 84's and popular 83's are particularly good here, as they are used for reading SBCs. Currently at TOTS time, we will be able to wait for new new SBCs in which 83s - 85s with higher highs will be more likely. For this reason, it makes sense to feel in demand with approaches and to put them on the market every hour for 7,000 - 10,000. For this method, you can choose all cards from the top 5 leagues.
As with any FUT trading method, gold is also used here: patience is the key to success. Just give it a try and you will see why this method is one of the most popular, especially at the beginning and with little start-up capital.
(See example of the "True 0 method" Diego Costa, normal price approx. 1.2k)
FUT trading with the 84+ method
I have a good friend who uses this FUT trading method and makes several millions with it alone. And when it comes to using a single player, you can find out which player it is and how this method works in this section.
The 84 and 85 method can be the whole FUT year because players with an 84 or 85 rating are the most likely to become SBCs. Since SBCs are offered all year round, these cards are also seen all year round.
This FIFA trading method is about buying popular 84 and 85 players, if they are “cheap” and selling them, they will increase in price. If you know what exactly the “cheap” and “expensive” fees are, you should include more.
During the course of the FUT year, many SBCs (Flashback, POTM, Guaranteed TDW or special events) appear regularly, which usually require 84 and 85 team ratings.
After the release of these SBCs, popular 84s and 85s almost always rise significantly in price. Depending on how popular the SBC reward is, the cards required will increase accordingly. Basically, you should buy the players if no SBC is currently offered. Since the SBCs come regularly but also expire, you have to shop in phases when it is "quiet". Reward days or pack offers during events are the best times to buy the players as cheaply as possible. Ideally, you even bid the players to get them even cheaper than buy it now price.
Now let me explain what I mean by popular players. Popular players are those who can be linked very well in SBCs. This includes the players from the top 5 leagues. Another criterion is the nation of the player. Popular, easy-to-link nations are England, Italy, Germany, Brazil, France, Spain, Argentina, Netherlands and Portugal.
It is also advantageous to take players from the top clubs of the top 5 leagues, because they increase in reality due to their popularity.
From my experience, I can say that goalkeepers barely rise and remain largely stable in price. The exception is Neto from FC Barcelona. Because of its nation and high rating (85) it is very popular and used in many SBC teams. So much for theory. Let's take a look at what it looks like in practice:
A friend of mine noticed very quickly that Carvajal is increasing the most from Real Madrid to SBCs, which (among other things) require an 85 team rating. Carvajal fulfills all the requirements that we mentioned earlier. He plays in the La Liga, is Spanish and plays for a top club. It is one of the most popular cards in SBCs. Especially since he is the only RV with this rating.
So my colleague does nothing but fill his club with Carvajals as soon as it is available for 10k and cheaper. By "make club full" I mean, if possible, the complete transfer list (100 places) and the complete watch list. You do not have to fill the entire club with one player with this trading method, otherwise you are limited with other methods. This was just one example of how my colleague does it. He has little time to trade and is therefore fully focused on this type and on this player. Success proves him right!
As you can see, there are always several options on how to proceed with a method. Of course, it also works if you buy fewer players. Of course, I've done this method very often with Carvajal. Its price rises to 25 + k according to popular SBCs. When Carvajal was available on the market at a "quieter" time without interesting SBCs for 9k, I decided to invest 500k in it to see what would happen when the next good SBC came.
So I bought 50 Carvajals and waited about a week for a new SBC. Of course, this was associated with a certain risk, because you never know exactly when the next attractive SBC is coming. There were also 50 places on the transfer list.
When a very attractive Flashback SBC came after a short time, I knew that it was worth the wait and the risk. Hazard Flashback was the SBC player and of course 85 cards were needed. Carvajal was perfect for this, especially since he is Spanish and also plays for Real Madrid. Carvajal quickly reached a price of just under 20k.
Since Hazard is a very popular player and also has extremely good values, many FUT players have done this SBC. So the investment had paid off in full. All Carvajal cards could easily be sold at a price of 18-20k. We remember the purchase price of 9k. The profit per card was therefore just under 10k. The same process was already worth gold in FIFA 19, as the Miranda example shows. At that time still in Serie A, with good nationality on the left, plus IV. With interesting SBCs, a price increase of 6-7 k to its normal price (9k) was not uncommon. Here, the normal price was almost doubled.
(Carvajal's price history. Good to see the constant ups and downs - peak in late March / early April when the Mid Icon SBC was released)
If, as in my case, you invested around 500k in Miranda, you would quickly reach over a million. Of course, not everyone has 500k to invest in, but that's not the point. Any investment at the recommended price (8-9k) would be profitable. And making profit is ultimately the key.
Now I would like to show you which 84 and 85 players are most worthwhile in FIFA 20 and which purchase prices can be described as "cheap". All 84s are considered to be the "cheaper" price if they cost less than 4k. For the 85s, a good guideline is usually below 9k. With the exceptions, I wrote the price behind it. Depending on the market situation, players can either be offered or purchased for immediate purchase. It's up to everyone.
(Example of the 85 method, based on Icardi)
The 84 and 85 method is definitely suitable for Premier League players. Since the POTM PL SBC comes every month, the PL players are used more and more. Sokratis is one of the best teams in the 84 series because he is the only central defender.
In series A there is a large selection of 84 and 85 cards in FIFA 20. You can find cheap players with advantageous nations for practically every position.
In FIFA 20, Ligue 1 only offers a limited selection of 84 and 85 series. The 86s and 87s are more interesting here. Verratti, Marquinhos, Di Maria and Keylor Navas are among the cheapest players with this rating. In addition, everyone plays for PSG, which quickly brings high chemistry. A chemistry of 80 is now required for many SBCs. It is easier to achieve high chemistry with the players mentioned.
The La Liga offers a very large selection of 85 cards this year. As mentioned earlier, Carvajal is an extremely popular card for SBCs in this area. But players like Marcelo, Aspas or Koke also have potential for good price increases. In the area of the 84s, Felipe from Atletico Madrid is the most popular player. Because of its nationality and position, is always an interesting option. Since FIFA 20 there is also a monthly POTM SBC for La Liga. This is also a positive factor for potential price jumps.
The Bundesliga is also very popular because a POTM SBC comes here every month. There are many 84 cards, especially compared to last year. The investment in Niklas Süle was and is really worthwhile this year. Since he is the only IV in this rating region, regular price explosions can be expected here.
Now you should have an overview of which players can be used with this method and what the approximate "cheap" purchase price is. However, this is only a guide.
In the end you have to decide for yourself what profit you are satisfied with. Of course, you can also make a profit if the players are more expensive than I specified. It is just a point of reference that you can use as a guide. If you use this trading method for a certain time, you will get a feeling for how high which player usually rises and can therefore set your own purchase price.
Best time to sell players in FIFA
The best time to sell is of course after the publication of the respective SBC. At what price you sell the player is up to you. Some are happy with 2k win per player, others wait for the player to increase by 5k.
It is in our nature that we always want to take the maximum with us, but this is often the wrong decision when trading. I believe that a safe win should be preferred to risk.
In my experience, players reached the highest retail price approximately 2 hours after the SBC was released.
I make it so that immediately after the SBC is published I add my players with an 84 rating at the starting price of 7,000 and instant purchase of 10,000. As you can see below some of them are already going away for these prices. I usually sell the remaining players 2 hours later at the market price.
Successful FIFA trading requires patience
In addition to patience, the basic requirement for FUT trading is continuity. There will be phases when you will think about giving up because no sales will be made. It is precisely in these situations that you have to show patience and stay tuned!
There will inevitably be moments of success and these will push you to continue. The longer you deal with trading, the better you get.
Remember that you only have to invest a little time to learn these methods once at the beginning. The knowledge you have learned and applied will be retained forever afterwards. You will be able to use these trading methods in all future versions of FUT as they will not change.
I recommend you set a dream team as your goal, which you can work towards. This team is likely to include many expensive players. It will be difficult for you at first to imagine having such a team at some point. Set yourself small intermediate goals by first focusing on a player. Once you've bought the player, move on to the next one. And so you keep going until you have your dream team together.
In this tutorial, we will learn how to invest and make coins in FIFA 21.
First of all, it's really important to know who is sharing the tutorial. This article is based on our own experiences with trading and investment in FIFA 21. Most of the times, when you see people on Social Media telling you to buy this or that player to make coins, you should give it a second thought. Because in that case the guy is probably has invested in that card and is going to sell all of his players for their profit. And they are tweaking the market to persuade you buy those cards and help him make more. That's why we never tell you to buy which card or invest in which player. We will teach you the strategy and rules and heads-outs and you'll have to evaluate the situation each time and buy and sell based on your new conditions.
The Concept of Investing in FIFA 21
Investing in FIFA 21 has more risk and also more profit. You'd be buying cards in large amounts and invest based on variation of their prices in FIFA 21 Coins. For investment in FIFA 21, you'll buy rare Gold cards and high-rated cards that are required in SBCs and objectives. Let's say there is a POTM SBC coming around, cards with rate of 87 will be good for the investment that will generate around 3000 FUT 21 Coins for you per card which will of course be subject to EA's tax per transaction which is five percent and is on the card's seller.
So if we want to formulate the profit, we would have something like this:
Earned FIFA 21 Coins = ( Card's Buying FUT Coins + Profit Coins ) / 0.95*
* 5% is deducted because of EA's Tax
Risks of Investing in FIFA 21
As we mentioned earlier, investment in FIFA 21 comes with some risks. So, the presumption of the above formula is that the invested card's price will go up and you'd expect to make profit, but likewise, it could go down and you'd lose some of your hard-earned FIFA 21 FUT Coins. That's why it's recommended that you watch the market for specific cards going up and down for a while before making such a big decision. Additionally, it's important that you wait enough so the card's price goes up. Acting hastily would not be good for investment.
So, for example, let's say if you want to invest in Thomas Muller from Bayern München with the rating of 86. If you wait too long until the SBC is around with Muller in it, the price of the card will already go up and if you buy, you wouldn't be making any profits. So, it's important to check the prices in FUT-BIN to make sure it hasn't gone up in the past few days to make sure it's still the old price. In that case, it would be reasonable to buy the cards and invest on it.
FIFA 21 Trading
Now, trading is a slightly different concept. It focuses on single trades on cards in FIFA21 and going for smaller profits each time. The risk of FIFA Trading compared to investment is very lower.
There are two different approaches in FIFA 21 Trading: Higher Profit and More Trades. Each approach has its pros and cons when you want to do it.
What are BID and BIN prices in FIFA 21?
Bid price is the average price you will bid on cards in the auction. You will bid on the cards and win if your offer gets accepted. However, BIN price (Buy It Now) is the minimum quick buying price that you can put on a card and buy it right away. Naturally, BIN prices are slightly higher than the average Bidding price of the cards.
Now we can calculate the profit margin of trading in FIFA 21:
PM* = (Sold Price x 0.95) - Bought Price
* Profit Margin
The sold price gets deducted by 5% because of taxation and then deducted by the card's purchase price and the result is your profit margin. Crystal clear!
So, by looking at the formula, it's obvious that the higher the price of the card, the higher the profit margin. And the more you trade, the more will your profit be (the second approach). For example, the silver cards cannot be sold as fast as gold cards as they are used in many places. So, going for gold cards will allow you trade more and thus more profit in FIFA 21.
Let's assume a given card has Bid price of 710 Fut21 Coins and the average BIN of 960 coins. What is expected from you is that you bid on that card several times at the price of 710 coins (the average bid). And when you decide to sell the cards, the sold price will be the card's BIN price that you can find in FUTBIN. So, you'll make around 250 FIFA21 coins from one card. Multiply it by 10, you'll get 2.5K coins. There is no limit in trading cards in FIFA 21, so you can trade as much as you need to make enough coins for buying that icon star for your team, or even selling the coins and making real money from them.
Higher Profit Approach in Trading in FUT 21
As we explained earlier, there are two different approaches in trading in FIFA 21. The first approach is called higher profit and focuses more on making more profit out of each sales instead of going for lower profit margin and higher number of trades. Some cards like Onana you can buy for like 6k coins. And if there's an SBC around, it would gain around 10K. So, PM = 10K - 5% - 6K, and your profit will be 3,500K FUT 21 Coin.
That being said, you will name a higher price on your cards, but how will that work?
As a rule of thumb, you should go for Bronze or Silver cards that will be used in Squad Building Challenges. Buying cards by bidding will have an effect on the market. When those cards become rare, you would be able to sell them at a high prices. Because the gamers wouldn't mind paying more just to get that SBC done. But there's always a risk when you go for higher profit margin. You should make sure the market's price is real and there are true buyers and demand for the card, otherwise you will have to sell cheaper that you bought and thus lose some money in your trading in FIFA 21.
To minimize the risk, you can do this: Buy cards that their Bid price is around their Quicksell price. In that case, the bidding cannot be very low, because the quick sell price is the limit and thus your risk will be minimized.
So, you should plan for your investment and trading, bring a calculator, and a calendar. Make sure you always include the 5% of tax in your calculations. Always keep an eye on the SBCs to see when they're up and when the cards gain value. Always keep an eye on the prices rising on FUTBIN. Use the formulas and tips shared in this article and make money! Happy trading with FIFA 21!
