James T Case Study: “One of the great things is its simplicity”
Give us some insight into your background and education?
I’m James, I’m 27 and from South East London. I did not go to University as I wanted to become a tennis coach.
Do you have any background knowledge in trading?
Football Index is the first trading I have ever done! I used to be a serial football accumulator gambler but Football Index has changed all that and now I use the Index 24/7!
What do you think makes a successful trader?
A successful trader must be patient and expect their shares to fall as well as rise. After a fall there is nearly always a rise so it’s about trusting your investment. It also helps to plan ahead, I’ve currently got a list of squad players I’m ready to invest in come November!
Have you made a profit? What kind of return do you anticipate from trading?
I originally invested just £50 in February this year, that was increased to £1,000 by April and my current value stands at over £7,000! Football INDEX is a goldmine! I am expecting the Index to boom even higher once November comes so my plan is to have around £10k by February 2018 which I think is very possible.
Are you employed currently? What do you do for a job?
I am a full-time tennis coach, working up to 40 hours a week. The hours are not always at sociable times but it allows me to check my portfolio regularly.
How do you see this as different from regular gambling?
Football INDEX is like gambling without the risk! The index has so much potential to grow that nearly every player is rising, so it’s very difficult not to make a steady profit!
Is it more intellectually satisfying than regular betting, if so why?
Yes definitely. I’m massively passionate about football and Football INDEX really rewards the knowledge I have of the sport. Other football betting such as accumulators and Super 6 rely a lot on luck, whereas Football INDEX is much easier to predict.
Have you found it easy to pick up?
Yes, one of the great things about Football INDEX is its simplicity. After a couple of weeks, I knew exactly what I was doing and how to do it.
Do you have a strategy and if so what is it briefly?
My strategy currently is based about Performance Buzz players. I own a lot of players who have great baseline scores or who have the potential to win a few PBs but have yet to do so. I also look ahead to players who are likely to produce lots of transfer speculation in January and August.
How do you find the platform? Do you enjoy using it?
I love using Football INDEX, I’m on it all the time and the concept is fantastic. It is so much better than the gambling on football I used to do.
Do you think Football INDEX will be successful in the future? How do you see the market evolving?
Yes, I think the potential for it to grow is massive. It is a unique platform and is slowly starting the get the recognition it needs to skyrocket. With the introduction of opening the squad and double Performance Buzz playouts, people who haven’t yet invested can still make huge profits!!
