Seriously, can’t catch our breaths over here!
In March we saw the implementation of the share split which also included a lead into the summer special announcement on April 15th.
The announcement of 5 paid places for media buzz during the summer season PLUS a 10% and 5% bonus offer on net buys was very well received by traders and the market rocketed. Have a read of the full announcement here.
Money will soon flow, if it hasn’t already, into media prospects who will benefit from finishing in the top 5 most often. Have a read of this blog post which shows which players have finished in the top 5 most often this season.
So what’s been happening here at IndexGain?
We’ve launched our BuzzBot Transfer Centre where Buzz collects transfer rumours from all over media outlets across Europe, adds a rating from low to high and puts it all into in one easy to read Transfer Rumours centre.
On top of this, traders can also review Football Index player stats such, as match day averages, peak scores, dividend wins and also price changes over the last day, 3 days and 7 days so you can see if you can get in early on that rumour or if you may have missed the boat.
Here’s a preview….
So, let’s round up what’s occurred in April…
Total Dividend Winners (BuzzBot report):
Messi tops the dividends winners chart in April with 19p. It’s been a superb month for the Argentinian wizard.
Top 10 Yields from Top 200:
Ozil once again the top yield….is he a dark horse for this summer?
Match Day Dividend Winners:
Ajax stars ran riot in April due to the champions league, all led by Donny Van Beek. Jordi Alba also had a strong month as too did Ayoze Perez winning back to back dividends.
Here’s a look at how Ayoze Perez scored during April:
Media Buzz Dividend Winners:
Salah and Messi stole the media in April with Pogba not too far behind.
Largest Price Increases From Top 200:
Donny Van Beek was the largest riser in percentage terms in April. It’s also been a good month for in-form players like Guedes and Tielemans.
Largest Price Fallers From Top 200:
Been a bad month for Man Utd forward line. Martial, Lingard, Rashford and Lukaku all in the top droppers in April from the top 200.
Barcelona accumulated the most PB points as a team in April. Atalanta picked up some decent form also and finished in the top 10.
Ajax players dominated dividend wins however, largely down to Van de Beek. Chelsea stars were not too far behind for PB dividends in April.
Nantes and Nice up there also with an especially good month for Nantes midfielder Valentin Rongier for PB too winning PB dividends back to back on 17th and 21st of April.

Below is a chart to show the progress of the FOOTIE in April.
On 15th April, day of the announcement the FOOTIE rose 3% with a single day drop the following week but since then, as part 1 of the deposit bonus drew to an end, the market began to shoot up again.
All in all a terrific month to be on the index! Let’s see what May will bring….
