Market frustration

SDS

I dont see what makes these kids think its a good idea to leap frog each other hundreds of stubs and sink a cards price just to be the next person to get the sell. Its so frustrating.

I bought a bunch of a certain players cards for around 500 stubs each, last night the stock rose to over 2000. I put my cards up for sale at 1950-2050, I go play a moment and come back to see the price has fallen by 300. I just sat there and watched as people kept adding more and more cards lower and lower until this morning the cards are back down below 1000.

Is this common practice every year? And how do you sell you cards at a decent profit if that's the case?

Thanks for reading

There should be a primer/white paper on how market works. I honestly think with all the players from other consoles, they don’t understand the market and really don’t understand the 10% tax. Plenty of times I’ve seen cards get slaughtered and I know it’s because someone is flipping and thinking they’re making profit but not factoring in tax.

I’d be happy if the market was working for more than half the day.

There are boat loads of one stubbers out there with no life that will sit there for hours on end undercutting by one stub to make profit. Not everyone wants to sit there and get one stubbed for hours to try and get a sale.

SDS

Perhaps some people do it to raise some quick stubs? Everybody who plays the market plays it for their own reasons.

SDS

Not everyone is out here trying to flip stubs, these people probably just want to offload cards as quickly as possible

You can almost always get anything you want off the market you just have to be patient. Everyone has there own way of making stubs and getting the players they want and some people just want to rent players and then sell them again as fast as possible.

Plus I will say this time last week i only had 15k in stubs and today I was able to purchase Trout. You just need to know whats hot and whats not.

Yes, patience is important; however, I'm wondering with the influx of new players if they understand how the market works. For instance, I saw yesterday all of cards added to teams after the roster update have multiple sell orders for 1
$1000 stubs. While this has happened in the past, new cards going for more than their worth, they usually bottom out quickly and never had sell orders over $500 stubs since people would usually flip them. It seems like possibly the newer players are trying to complete collections and are willing to spend big to do it. Just my opinion thougj.

What happened with this one is supply dropped so low that the price skyrocketed once that happened everyone who had one tried to cash in which dropped it back very quick, i always avoid those.
for the other stuff. i ignore the undercutting and just list it for what i want to get. the market moves so fast at this time of year that i havent had an order sit for more than 6 hrs.

SDS

If there are more users for PS5, Xbox and Ps4 this year...maybe way more traffic and lots of people trying to beat current price?

SDS

One thing is people who have never played a sports game with a live market dont know what they are doing and are non patient thinking they will make a million stubs in an hour because some youtuber made a vid "how to make 1 million stubbs per hour."

SDS

JG WENTWORTH and i want my stubs now!

I get half my entertainment value in this game just watching the market. I expect crazy and I’m never disappointed. 🙂

It certainly seems like I read this complaint a few times every year.

The bottom line is nobody is required to play the market by your rules or my rules. What they are doing may not be smart, or even in their best interest, but that is their choice.

I scummed commons last night for a while and made a KILLING. Highly underrated.

The filter feature is your friend 😃

SDS

why is it when a common card is 2500 stubs for a create but but once you get that card you can't sell at 5,000 because it won't let you .
there are a couple common and Bronze cards like that are $2,500 stubs and you can't turn around and flip it .

SDS

Because they are maxed out. Too many stub transfers happened last year
