As obvious as it may sound, being a successful trader is all about buying cards from the Transfer Market when they’re at their cheapest, and selling them on when they are at their highest.

To do this, we recommend bulk buying multiple versions of the same player and sending them to your transfer list for safe-keeping.

FIFA 22 Team of the Week trading tips

Buy meta players

The in-forms that are most likely to rise in price are players that are effective in-game, so those with high pace stats and chemistry links to other big-name cards.

For example, someone like Gabriel Jesus is extremely popular among both casuals and professionals thanks to his blistering pace, and he’s a Brazilian who links to the likes of Neymar and Road to the Knockouts Fred.

A good rule of thumb is to go with in-forms that are rated 83 or above from Europe’s top five leagues, or are either English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, or Brazilian.

Buy at the weekend

Just as important as who you buy is when you choose to make your investment. Although it isn’t set in stone, the weekend is the best time to splash some coins on a handful of in-forms.

This is because new TOTW cards first drop on Wednesday evenings, and this is when they are at their maximum price. The price then slowly drops as more and more in-forms come out of packs.

Division Rivals rewards land every Thursday, and players can start to open FUT Champions rewards from Friday, so the market will be flooded all weekend.

The more versions of a card on the market, the cheaper it will be, so it’s from Friday to Sunday evening that the market will be kindest.

Think about future SBCs

The biggest feature that can cause a surge in in-form prices is the release of a popular SBC that asks for a TOTW player in the requirements.

Most notably, Player of the Month SBCs have a tendency to give the market a boost as everyone scrambles to complete the challenge before time runs out.

Keep an eye on the nominees for each league every month, and buy cards that might relate to the potential winner’s SBC.

For example, if you think Mohammed Salah will win the Premier League Player of the Month, look at relatively high-rated Liverpool in-forms, or players from the teams he’s scored against.

Look for cards at discard value

The minimum price of any gold in-form is 9,500 coins, roughly the same amount you receive for quick-selling them.

Picking up TOTW cards that are at or close to the minimum price is a smart low-risk investment, as it’s virtually impossible to lose coins.

If you follow our other tip of looking at players with good chemistry links, then these bargains might just net you a tidy profit when a good SBC drops.

Don’t forget about EA tax

In every single transfer that takes place in FIFA 22, EA deducts 5% of the final fee.

It’s worth bearing this in mind, as it may impact your final profit if you’re dealing in high-value players.

Buying a player for 90,000 coins and selling them for 100,000 might look like a nice 10,000 coins increase, but you will only see 95,000 from the sale.

This is as much of an issue if you’re trading 10,000-20,000 coin players, but it can make a huge dent once cross the 100,000 coin mark.

Patience is key

Last but not least, the real secret to trading with in-forms is to be patient, and not to overstretch yourself.

We only recommend getting into the trading game if you have plenty of coins to spare and are happy with your own team.

This way, you won’t miss the coins that are tied up in Team of the Week player who you might have to wait a month or two to see a profit on.

Some cards can sit at a similar price for months on end until the right POTM or ICON SBC drops to send their value skyrocketing, so sit tight if you don’t need the coins ASAP.
