The total value of your assets is displayed on the small dashboard on the navbar, as the largest sized figure, next to your name. It is the result of summing up your liquidity and the current market value of your portfolio (both these figures are also displayed on the navbar on the line below, so that you are always aware of your holdings).
For a deeper dive, you can get to the value of your holdings by adding your 'coins available for investment' [FAQ 2.8] to your 'investment in player portfolio' [FAQ 2.9], duly incremented or reduced by the 'portfolio value change' [FAQ 2.10].
In any case, please note that the current market value of your portfolio is an estimate which considers the latest market price for each player. If market conditions change, you may not be able to sell the intended shares at that price.
Yes. Any player's individual value can be checked on the 'Value' column of the ' My Players' section. This amount is calculated based on the latest market price for that player's shares [FAQ 4.12], multiplied by the number of that player's shares you hold on your portfolio.
To check the current value of the shares you hold you may use the small dashboard on the navbar, in particular the amount close to the icon. For a more detailed analysis, you may also consider the values presented on the Dashboard, namely under the ' Financial Data' section [FAQ 2.11].
By holding a player's shares in your Portfolio you may use him in Leagues with friends and other users from the FOOTBID platform and be eligible to win competition prizes [FAQ 6.13].
Additionally, every day that you log in, you will receive a daily dividend depedent on the overall sports quality of the players you hold, measured by the 'portfolio weighted rating' [FAQ 4.6].
The daily dividend received will then be calculated using a rate calculated by dividing the 'portfolio weighted rating' by 1 000, which is applied to the eligible portfolio [FAQ 2.11] (i.e. excluding any players who may not have been rated yet this season, for his current club, on eligible competitions [FAQ 8.3]).
For simplicity, the main performance indicador in FOOTBID is the current value of all assets held by a given user [FAQ 2.11].
This indicator considers both coins available and current market value of the players in the portfolio and it is displayed on the respective user's row or card in the Network.
As an alternative measure for performance, focused instead on the returns obtained and expected in the platform, you may consider the sum of two key indicators available in the user's detail page: (i) 'total portfolio change' and (ii) 'overall profit or loss' in the platform.
(i) 'Total portfolio change' represents the difference between the current price of the shares held on the user's portfolio and the amount initially invested on them [FAQ 2.10]. This value may be negative if the shares have mostly lost value since your initial investment.
(ii) 'Overall profit or loss' represents how many FOOTBID coins a user effectively won or lost in the platform so far [FAQ 2.12]. These include, for instance, the sale of a player's share as well as dividends, pay-outs or performance prizes received as a reward for the user's investment performance.
The number on the right hand side of your name is your 'total value of your assets' [FAQ 2.11], which is composed by (i) 'coins available for investment' and (ii) 'portfolio value'.
The 'coins available for investment' represents your currently available cash balance, including any dividends or paybacks you have already received from your investments [FAQ 2.8].
The 'portfolio value' represents the current value of your investments in players. Please note that the current value of each player is calculated through their latest price on the Market [FAQ 4.12] and considers both the initial 'investment in player portfolio' [FAQ 2.9] and the 'portfolio value change' [FAQ 2.10].
The and icons represent any positive or negative changes on the value of your portfolio considering all of your ongoing investments.
The notification alert next to your avatar in the navbar appears whenever you still have unread notifications on your ' Hub'. The number displayed represents the number of unread notifications, considering only those which do not emerge from your actions [FAQ 2.5]. To quickly navigate to them, just click this notification alert!
