The Sell Queue

Adding Shares to the Sell Queue is the first way to cash out your bet. Selling this way offers your Shares to other Traders at their market value (the Buy Price). FI can’t guarantee your Shares will be sold at market value at the time you add them to the Queue, but you can set a Reserve Price. This is the lowest price you’re willing to let your Shares go for and, if the Shares you’re selling drop below the Reserve Price before they’re at the front of the Sell Queue, the sale is cancelled and you’ll keep your Shares.

Selling through the Sell Queue can take a bit longer, as you’ll need to wait for other Traders to Buy your Sell Queue shares. It’s worth it, though. Any top Trader will tell you - making money on Football Index is about patience.

Instant Sell

Instant Sell is powered by Bids

For a Bid to be successful - it needs to be Matched. Bids are only Matched when other Traders make an Instant Sell.

The price you'll see in the red Sell button on the Index (the Instant Sell price) is an average of a maximum 300 Shares that come from the highest Bids. When a Trader Instant Sells Shares, the highest Bids for those Shares are Matched. Bids are Matched based on price (highest Bid first). If multiple Bids are the same price, then by time (First In First Out).

As the Instant Sell price is an average of a maximum 300 Shares, selling any fewer than 300 Shares might result in a higher Instant Sell price. This is because the highest Bid may be higher than the average price, and Instant Sells always go to the highest Bid first.

Sell Price

Sometimes, you won’t see a price in the Sell button for certain players. This happens when footballers don’t have any Bids placed on them, so no Instant Sell price is generated. You can still add these players to the Sell Queue.

A trader Buys or Sells shares in a footballer almost every second on Football Index.
