FUT 14 Coin Making Trading Guide


FUT 14 Coin Making Trading Guide - FIFA 14 Ultimate Team

In this guide we will take you through step-by-step how you can manually trade to make coins. As a general guideline we will show which methods are most optimal for the amount of coins you have. Please also check out our updated guides to assist you with your trading (under ‘guides’ in the menus).

Please remember: A 5% EA tax will be deducted on everything you sell. When selling your cards, keep your Starting and Buy Now prices as close as possible. This is because many FUTers will be more inclined to wait until your auction finishes if there is a big enough gap between these prices. Peak times to sell are between 3.30pm – 12am (UK time).
Please note: All prices quoted here are for the XBOX, but the same trading methods apply for the PS3 and PC!

1000-10000 coins:

Although you may have come across many other methods of making coins when you have between 1-10k coins, we feel this method works very well for the more patient FUTers (it has worked a treat for us in first few weeks of FUT 14). Once you know the value of a popular player (that appears in high volume in the Transfer Market, such as Arsenal’s CM – Aaron Ramsey) search for a max Buy Now price a few hundred coins cheaper than what you can sell them for. It is likely that a message saying ‘No matching results found’ will appear, Click OK then click search again until one appears. Buy it instantly (be careful it isn’t another player with the same club and nationality with the position changed).

FUT 14 Aaron Ramsey Buy Now Search - FIFA 14 Ultimate Team

As Ramsey is such a popular player that gets listed in the Transfer Market every minute, you should find it doesn’t take long to find a bargain. As of writing this guide we purchased Aaron Ramsey for 500 coins in the 58th minute and then instantly sold him for 800 coins (bagging 260 coins profit). Please remember that you will have to find your own player you can consistently make coins on using this method. Now we have advised FUTers to do this with Ramsey it will become harder to snap up bargains! If you use this method with more expensive players you will need to search for a Buy Now price 10-25% cheaper than their value.

If you’re patient enough, this method can be very effective! You will be able to make even more coins on the player if a popular Chemistry Style is assigned to that player.

10,000 – 25,000 coins:

Depending on the margins you would like to make, will depend upon the amount of coins you choose to use with this method. Obviously the more coins you have the more players / expensive players you will be able to buy. This method we are about to discuss will help you make a quick few thousand coins in one transaction… Every Wednesday at 3pm (UK time) a new TOTW is announced, whereby many of these popular / high rated TOTW regular cards will rise in value compared to the previous few days (usually peaking between 3-3.30pm UK time when the TOTW is announced and slightly increasing at 6pm UK when in-forms are released into packs). This is due to the fact that they are overly hyped and other FUTers must use them in their teams but cannot afford their in-forms! If you can predict popular / high rated players that will feature in the following TOTW and you can pick them up at a bargain price then you are guaranteed to make coins. Timing your purchase right is VITAL when making coins (read our investing in player performances guide).

FUT 14 TOTW 2 David Alaba Buy Now - FIFA 14 Ultimate Team

An example of the price rise can be seen in TOTW 2 where David Alaba’s regular card price increased from 18k (Wednesday 25th September at 3am UK) to 28k the same day at 9pm UK time. Fortunately we purchased Alaba at 3am UK time for 18k and sold him fairly near that value for around 29k, bagging us 10,550 coins profit. As of 11pm the following day after TOTW 2 was released, he is currently 38,750 cheapest Buy Now (his value will likely drop from this in the coming days).

25,000 – 50,000 coins:

Please note: Now that FUT 14 is in full swing, this method is very popular and will become harder to use.

We have found that the 59th minute method works most optimally with high rated expensive players! This is because it can be very time consuming and requires patience searching near the 59th minute for potential bargains. The way we went about using this method was to firstly note down the general cheapest prices of 15 of the highest rated BPL players and some in-form values. Once we memorized these values we knew instantly whether we saw a bargain (it’s easier when there are two of you as you can quickly confirm before purchasing)! The next step was to filter the Player Search results to Quality: Gold > League: Barclays PL and click Search.

FUT 14 59th Minute Method - FIFA 14 Ultimate Team

We deliberately filtered the Buy Now Min. to 9.5k coins to remove all of the cheaper players from the search results. You will then have to spend a few minutes scrolling to around the 200th page (it may be more or less depending on how busy the market is) and then scroll back and forth between pages to refresh the page and get the newest listings on the hour. We’ve had great success using this method, picking up frequently listed players such as Rooney for 50k and selling for 60k +. Please remember not to click ‘Back to Search’ as you will have to re-scroll through the pages until the 59th minute. You will find that with the EU release of FIFA 14 tomorrow (September 27th 2013) many new players will not know the value of high rated players and this method could prove very successful for you!

FUT 14 59th Minute Method Page 199 of 200+ - FIFA 14 Ultimate Team

50,000 – 100,000 coins:

Once you have accumulated nearer 100k coins, you can look to start trading with popular / high rated in-forms. There are two methods you can use when trading with in-forms (one where you have between 50k-100k and the other when you have more coins to spare).

Firstly you will notice that come 6pm UK on the Wednesday, the TOTW in-form prices are sky high. You should wait for prices to stabilize and then search for bargains using the Buy Now Max price below their values, or alternatively attempt to find them cheap on Live Auctions. We’ve found that the best time to find cheap in-forms after the prices have stabilized on Live Auctions is during the morning (UK time) when the majority of users are at school, college, university and work etc. Live Auctions finishing during early morning UK times will involve less bid wars. Once you have purchased an in-form at a bargain, list it for your desired Buy Now price and if it doesn’t sell keep re-listing until it does (you’ll have more chance of selling it for a tidy profit in the evening UK).

100,000 + coins:

When you have more than 100k coins (preferably around 500k) you can more easily afford to tie up coins in players. This method involves picking up the popular / high rated in-form at a bargain price throughout the middle – end of the week and waiting for the current in-forms to disappear from packs. We wanted to use IF Reus and IF Aubameyang in one of our squads so we found this was the perfect excuse! Now these players have vanished in packs there will be less on the market, which will see their prices rise significantly. Please remember that this is assuming the player does not get another in-form for a couple of weeks and is popular with FUTers. If you feel the player will get another in-form in a popular position, then make sure you sell the in-form prior to this! We also advise selling expensive players before the January 2014 market crash (when the TOTY is released).

Other methods used when you have a lot of coins include monopolizing the market with certain cards. Remember this is easier to do with certain consumables as you now have an UNLIMITED consumables pile! We will cover these other trading methods in more depth soon, including methods relating to different events such as tournaments throughout the coming weeks!

A few tips to finish:

  1. Make sure you follow popular YouTubers as they have the ability to influence FUT 14 prices.
  2. When a large number of packs are being opened (due to a popular TOTW or Happy Hour) the market will become flooded with bargain consumables and cheap bargain gold players.
  3. Strength has a much greater influence on how your team plays compared to FUT 13.
  4. Before purchasing a player make sure you change Summary to Status so you can see the player’s Contracts and Fitness. If both are low then you will have to apply Contracts and rest them / apply Fitness Cards.
  5. Make sure you put your players through several listing cycles to help them sell (if by the 3rd cycle they haven’t sold then drop the price).
  6. Players that you purchase from the Transfer Market will need to play 10 games for your Club before receiving a Player Loyalty Chemistry Bonus.

In Conclusion: 

For the more advanced traders concerned about the number of new FUTers becoming clued up with their FUT trading, don’t worry as there will always be new ways to make coins! With the significant increase in FUT 14 players compared to FUT 13, you will always be able to find bargains! If you follow these methods you will soon become an expert trader as you will understand the values of most items in the market along with knowledge of what events impact the FUT 14 market. This will help you to recognize instant bargains and players to invest in.

We hope this guide has helped you build up coins on the start of your FUT 14 journey. Remember there are plenty more methods which we will cover in the coming weeks, but these should help get you underway. Has this guide helped you? Do you have a method you want to share with others?

    Thanks mate

    • UltimateTeamUK

      Glad we could help Matt! Stay tuned for plenty more exclusive FUT coin making tips!

  • Dowgle

    One other way to earn fast coins is with injury cards. Players are very impatient if they need a player healed asap and will pay over the odds, so try to pick up bargain healing cards using the 59th minute method, then ramp the buy it now up on them for quick profit.

  • anonymous

    I am doing the first step but can’t sell any of the fitness cards for 200. Help.

    • UltimateTeamUK

      You may have more difficulty than usual selling these cards for 200 Buy Now due to the amount of packs currently being opened during UK FIFA release (flooding the market with these types of cards). It should become easier to sell the cards for 200 soon – FUTers are always going to want these cards and most will pay the cheapest Buy Now price of 200. Hope this helps.

      Hi Ammin, we recommend using the investing in player performances coin making method and buying up a lot of one player! Timing the buying / selling right though is key to making A LOT of coins! Please read our guide here to know what type of players to invest in: http://www.ultimateteam.co.uk/2013/10/fut-14-coin-making-investing-player-performances/ … Townsend, Januzaj and Lukaku are recent examples of players who have fluctuated hugely in price due to performing well in real-life.

    I bought Rvp normal, just after the TOTW was released wednesday, as you recommended to do in the 10.000-25.000 trading tip. The next day his value had gone down about 100k?!

  • Andrew

    Should I continually sell my team to make profit or just accumulate players

    • UltimateTeamUK

      Hi Andrew, your players will fluctuate depending on how well they perform in real-life and the time of year etc. We recommend selling before the January 2014 market crash (when TOTY is released). Also please read our investing in player performances guide so you can understand when the best time to sell some of your players is: http://www.ultimateteam.co.uk/2013/10/fut-14-coin-making-investing-player-performances/.
