27 attacks at level 55 is a little much. Really, the way I look at it, is I will buy any attack that actually strengthens my fighter and increases my crit chances. Otherwise, I don't buy it. That ends up meaning I master the two I am given for free. Then, I master a few of the stronger 1%(27%) attacks to give me some strength in the early levels. After that, I don't touch any attacks that are not 2%(54%) attacks.
Some people (like Robbie Spivey) argue for mastering the first attacks in every style and then not touching any until level 52 when they can't be combo'd. Personally, I disagree with him on that because I think it doesn't make you as strong as you can be through the middle levels and you can turn the attacks that can be combo'd off in the gameplan once you get better attacks later in the game (my lev 77 fighter doesn't have any attacks that are vulnerable to combos). However, his strategy is much more viable than buying all of them.
Also.. it is critical that you master EVERY attack you buy. If not, you will never overcome a mastered defense and do any damage.
Aside from that, you would have to post your fighter link for us to do any more to help.
As far as the money..... Part of it is buying less attacks.. The other part is slowing down your leveling process. If you are doing a lot of fighting, it will level you too quickly. You need a lot of sparring partners to build your money. You should also do the challenges. Those will help. Gangs used to be a good resource, but are not so much unless they fix them. Also, watch you wall. Oranges and Bonus Cash are great sources of money that have no experience attached.
Also.. Only train your ten a day. If you do more than that, it levels you with experience that has hardly any money attached.
