Mini Market Crashes is a trading method that takes advantage of suddenly drop in value of a certain player or type of player on the FUT market.

The Method

First of all, we need to explain what a mini-crash is. It happens when a certain player or type of player suddenly lose value on the FUT market. This usually happens when special player items are re-released, an upgraded version of a player is out or a squad building challenge is launched featuring unexpected requirements. You can use these in a similar way to a larger market crash to make Ultimate Team coins.

A re-release increases supply. The panic this causes floods the market. Once the special players are out of packs again and their value will recover. When a new version of a player drops, any older special versions drop in value. This happens as people sell the older version to try and pick up the newly released version.

SBC releases can cause a mini crash, if players that people had invested in are not required. Everyone panics and list there now unneeded investments at the same time. The POTM SBCs can often cause a mini crash as EA try their best to stop anyone investors making a profit.

Common Mistakes

When using the Mini Market Crashes Method, the most common mistakes are the following ones:

Over Investing
Don’t leave yourself with no coins. You need to be able to make FIFA coins with other trading methods while you wait for prices to recover.

Panic Selling
If your players don’t rise in value straight away, be patient and just hold them. You never know when EA will drop something that rockets the FUT market upwards again.

Step by Step

    1. Analyze
      Identifying something that could cause a specific player to drop. EA often releases ‘Best Of TOTWs’ or TOTW SBCs. This will instantly cause high-end TOTW players to drop. Sometimes it’s when EA switch up requirements for an SBC. People panic list their investments and undercutting ensues.


    1. Track
      Monitor any new FUT content that’s dropping. Knowing the effect live content has on the market is the key to this FIFA trading method. Keeping up to date with our Twitter account is the best way to stay in the know.


    1. Choose your Targets
      When you see a player’s value crashing, ask yourself these questions. Is it a META player? Is this player possible SBC fodder? Is this player highly rated? Is this player usually rare on the market? If the answer is yes to one or more then it’s a good investment. A player’s value won’t recover for no reason. Keep in mind that they must be used in-game or in an SBC. Special players from the big leagues are always great. If a POTM SBC drops with unexpected requirements the market will be flooded with players as people panic list.


    1. Buy
      Use that panic to your advantage and buy the players you have identified.


  1. Sell
    Sell when the player’s value recovers. The holding time will be different for each player you pick up. Some take a few hours to recover, others a few days. Usually, the higher the rating, the quicker a card will recover. These players are rarer and being used more often in people’s FUT squads.
