    Hunting for Profit

    On the 4th November I attended the latest “Hunting for Profit” (HFP) In-Running trading course run by Matt Gibson. The course was from 9.30 am till about 5.00 pm and I didn’t fancy driving all the way to Doncaster very early in the morning, so I went up the evening before and stayed one night in a hotel nearby. A large percentage of the other attendees did the same and we all met Matt in the hotel bar for a drink and a chat which was nice. Everyone on the course that I spoke to was nice and friendly. I think we were all pretty much in the same boat…

    Trading Update Oct 2019

    For anyone who doesn’t know, I started trading in January 2019 and have lost money every month since, some months a considerable amount. At the end of April, I switched to trading in-running instead of pre-race and liked it immediately. I could see the potential and was convinced I could do well at it. It isn’t easy and although I learnt the techniques involved quite quickly, turning the technique into a skill takes time and practise. You also need discipline in spades. Even though I still kept on losing when I switched to in-running, my losses have been reducing steadily month on month as I’ve ironed out mistakes and slightly…

    My In-Running Trading Set Up

    You’d be surprised how often I get asked on Twitter questions like “what stakes do you use” or what’s your set up like etc. So rather than replying to everyone individually I thought I’d just do a quick video. It will take longer than a reply but I’ll only have to do it once! So watch the video below and I’ll summarise it at the foot of the page for you. Bet Angel software you can access it here. Free 14 Day Trial. Summary OK just a couple of things I forgot to explain in the video. I use £2.10 and £5.20 and £10.30 (odd amounts) due to the Betfair…

    Bet Angel Meet & Greet

    Not so long-ago Peter Webb (Bet Angel Founder) mentioned on Twitter (@BetAngel) that he was doing a “Meet & Greet” event on the 15th July 2019 at the Bet Angel offices for anyone interested. It was only open to a maximum of 6 people, so after quickly reading the details I booked a spot. I’m so glad I did as I found it a worthwhile day. For anyone thinking of attending a future meet and greet event let me say you will need to have realistic expectations of the event as it’s not a training/ coaching event. Which for the cost of a spot (£10 + Vat) it is hardly…

    Betfair Sort Yourself Out!

    We (exchange traders) should all be worried when Betfair is struggling to find it’s own arse using both hands. I’ve had 4 emails from Betfair in the last week or so that sums up their general incompetence but that is the least of my worries. Let’s deal with the relatively minor issue of the emails. Here is the first one. Hooray I’m a winner! LOL, I trade currently at £2 stakes as I’m still honing my in-running skills so the amount I bet is relativity small. When I last got a cash race bonus is was £2 or £3. So this didn’t excite me too much but hey free money…

    In Play Trading

    I’ve traded in-play on Betfair before but normally when my scalping attempts went wrong pre-race. When that happens it normally goes completely wrong in-play and that’s where every newbie Betfair trader does their spuds. Today I attempted to trade in-play as a deliberate strategy. I traded 42 horse races on Betfair today and lost £14.34 on the day. I’m actually very pleased as I was trying this new strategy (well new to me) for the first time. It actually worked very well and but for one very bad bit of luck which cost me £35.22 and a mistake of my own making that cost me £17.19 so I was very…

    Bet Angel Review | Soccer Mystic

    I’ve done a very quick off the cuff video showing a quick review of Soccer Mystic via Bet Angel. More detailed information can be found below the video along with a link for you to try Bet Angel “Free” for 28 days. How did Soccer Mystic help me? What I perhaps didn’t explain well or indeed even correctly in the unscripted video was exactly how the Bet Angel tool was able to help me make a profit. I don’t know much about football trading but a simple strategy that is so old it’s got whiskers on it, is to lay the draw and then wait for someone to score and…

    Ultragold for the National

    This isn’t a tip, I don’t do tips. (mainly because I don’t have a clue about horses) but a friend who does study the form likes Ultragold a lot. So for fun more than anything I’ve had a small bet on Ultragold for the Grand National. Backed it @130 for the win and @15.14 to place. When I originally backed it we had no idea if it would run but as it gets closer to the big day it’s still declared and is now trading @80 If it goes to post I expect it to be no more than @40 Anyway as I say this isn’t a tip and I…

    Betfair Trading, my Saturday afternoon

    OK so today I decided to film on and off throughout the day as a way of charting my progress with my Betfair Trading. Saturday is often a good day to trade on the exchange as there is more “Liquidity” in the market as the “Standard” punters (I hate calling them mug punters) are in the pub, phone in hand backing the ITV races etc. I’m very new to this and I’m still learning a lot as I go along. The video is started and paused briefly throughout the afternoon so you effectivley see my results over the entire afternoon in one 5 min video. It’s just to show each…
