Buy and Sell Price Football Index

If you decide to sell a player, you have two options. You can list him for sale, waiting for another trader to buy.

This is known as Market Sell & it actually lists the player up for sale at his current buy price (£1.53 in this instance).

Alternatively, you can sell up immediately on that player, selling directly to Football Index.

This would sell the player at £1.48 on the above image, meaning that there is a £0.05 spread which Football Index make.
