Football INDEX is currently in the midst of some pretty heavy investment. With a very healthy increase of 114.80 points, it looks as though traders are going to push the Index past the 18,000 point mark before too long. The excellent volume of trading meant that last night we witnessed a new member of the illustrious £10.00 club. Who else could it have been? None other than the Egyptian King Mohamed Salah.

With a remarkable record of 17 Media wins across the previous month, it’s not hard to see why Salah has managed to force his way into the £10.00 club. Liverpool will also be participating in their second leg fixture against Roma tonight and it’s going to take nothing short of a miracle for the Italians to overturn the 5-2 deficit. We’ve spoken on numerous occasions about Salah’s majestic form this season, but now that we are getting to the business end of the season, the big names are sure to dominate the headline more and more and his record of Media wins just goes to show that he is very much the darling of the British press (and Football INDEX) at this moment of time.
Real Madrid managed to secure their place in their third Champions League final in a row last night after an exhilarating 2-2 draw against Bayern. Both Joshua Kimmich (£2.45) and James Rodriguez (£3.29) showed their continued worth on the Index with a goal each for Bayern. However, Karim Benzema’s (£1.17) brace meant that Madrid won the tie 4-3 on aggregate. All three of the goal scorers managed to secure the Match Day dividend on the night and it was Rodriguez who managed the Star Player. The Colombian star has been in great form recently and his return into the Bayern starting lineup has coincided with Jupp Hynkes return at the helm for Bayern.
The increased volume of trading is likely to have occurred in response to traders getting ready for the big Birmingham Trader meet which takes place on Saturday 5th May. Tickets are now sold out and it promises to be a day full of green based on previous Trader Meets. For those traders unable to make the event, it will be worthwhile preparing your bank balance beforehand in order to take advantage of what promises to be an exciting surge of activity come Saturday.
As such, with more European football throughout the week, coupled with the Birmingham Trader Meet, it certainly looks like that 18,000 barrier may well be shattered much sooner rather than later.
