Picking up from last week, it seemed this one began as a calm before the storm for the Ultimate Team market. Early days saw prices stabilize and begin to climb; however, with the massive TOTY announcement and free pack (for those impacted by a brief period during which Prime Icons were not in packs at they should’ve been) surprise, the market has begun to turn negative.
Important Note: The data/prices will be taken from Xbox One. However, this year, player prices across both consoles（PS4） seem more similar than ever.
WEEKLY RETURNS & STATS
Highs/Lows These figures represent the highest and lowest prices of the items over the week. Note that these can come from any price during the week, so always check the price before listing.
Volatility Volatility, measured in terms of coins and a metric of risk, reflects the price fluctuation trends of the PTG player’s item.
— Quick take: Just like highs/lows the fluctuation stayed similar relative to their prices. That being said William Carvalho, Asensio and Stephan El Shaarawy could be profitable if you can buy at the right times.
Beta Beta, another risk statistic, represents the tendency of a card to respond to swings in the market, and the higher the value the greater the expected price shift.
— Quick take: Unlike the two previous stats, beta had some more extreme figures. Players like Renato Sanches, Lars Stindl and Joe Hart all showed high values which means they could be poised for big gains, but at a higher risk.
TOTW Shout Again a week with no strong Team of the Week contenders. Stay patient with the return of French and German football.
