Trading

Hopefully, I’ve got many more years left to enjoy the finer things in life. I do a lot of that already, but just not on the most important weeks of the year.

A decent week at Ascot is worth a significant number of days of normal racing for me, so it’s a key focal point. You will have seen the same on the Grand National, The Derby and all the other big races.

Putting aside the monetary reward, I enjoy trading and the challenges it brings and I’ve really driven to be the best I can at what I do. That means putting in a lot of work when required and making the odd sacrifice.

Focusing on the big meetings leaves me tons of time and space to explore all the other things I want without feeling I’ve missed out on anything.

Skipping a big meeting and having to try and make up time and money on smaller fare doesn’t feel like an option to me. So hitting the big meetings hard allows me to create that time and space without impacting my goals.

Not only that, I feel it’s important for my followers and users of Bet Angel that you know I have enough faith in the product to make full use of it during these pivotal weeks.

That’s why I’ll put so much energy into trading Royal Ascot this week.

There’s not a week that goes by that somebody doesn’t ask this question, or a similar one. What is a good return on your stakes when trading Betfair?

It’s an incredibly tricky one to answer? So there was only one solution really…

To show you!

In this Betfair trading video I’ll show you a half-decent return for the stakes used. £25 per click and a maximum of 4 clicks at any one point in time.

You don’t need a huge trading bank when you start learning to trade in order to make a reasonable profit, within a short space of time on Betfairs exchange!

Note: I’ve been doing this for some time, it’s just an expression of my own trades and therefore does not mean it would be so easy for a new viewer to do straight away. Successful trading requires dedication and some degree of experience.

The racing on a Monday and a Tuesday drops down a gear at this time of year, apart from big meetings.

So it’s often a chance to take some time out or focus on other things. I’ll be using the time to give myself a rest between big events. I already work at least six days a week so skipping a weak card won’t make much difference to me.

But you may want to do some research, look at new markets or a number of other things. I guess that’s up to you.

Peter Webb explains what the draw bias is in horse racing. This video is linked to another video that uses it in a race: -

http://greenuptv.com/automated-dutching/

The draw bias is well known in racing, but if you are using the software from a non-racing background you may not be aware of it.

This video explores the draw bias and explains it by looking at two very different flat courses.

Peter Webb talks you through another piece of automation on Bet Angel.

Is this video we look at using one of the example automation available via the forum.

You can download it here: -

It performs a dutch bet on low draw horses, with races lower than 8f (1m). We talk through the various settings and how they are used in this video.

Sorry for the hum on the microphone, no idea what caused that!

If you’re learning to trade Betfair while holding down a job, it can be frustrating. Even more so if you have a young family.

This week Ollie asks a question about the possibilities of learning to trade Betfair while in 9-5 employment. Here’s my answer!

When is it time to call it quits?

Recently, there’s been a few bits out there that have led me to making this video. I haven’t updated the Followers Q & A for quite a while but it just seemed the right thing to do.

Giving up trading is a bitter pill to swallow for some, others do it after 5 minutes. In this clip I address a recent question…

In my Oaks / Derby video I mentioned I would elaborate on the very first market that traded on Betfair.

Bit of a ramble first, as it’s that time of the year when Betfair and I celebrate an anniversary, but I’ll read out the blog post from Mark Davis, ex Betfair director which is a really neat insight into the very start of Betfair.

Online Betting’s Horrific Truth in 2017

Sadly, 2017 has seen online betting stoop to an all-time low.

Watch and share this video clip with all that need their eyes opened to the truths of online betting in 2017.

Why is it bookmakers are allowed to offer prices, a service, via online betting and then not follow through on that offering?

Why is it some people can only bet loose change yet other, with addiction are allowed to stake thousands?

Online betting UK has become a monster amongst bookmakers, who offer far worse prices than that of betting exchanges.

The Epsom Derby meeting encompasses a number of races, but one of the biggest of the year.

There is always a lot of focus on this race and the meeting so it’s worth a bit or your focus.

It also kicks off a really busy month, one of the biggest of the year. There is so much sport this month you may struggle to cope. But at least we have no football tournament this year.

Reading Betfair graphs and charts confuse many. You’ll see why in this clip, along with getting a fuller understanding of how Betfair graphs and charts work.

I’ve broken the explanation down into 3 sections. The most important things to understand when looking at a Betfair chart or graph! To newer, aspiring traders, reading any given graph is confusing due to the lack of time stamps.

Trading and family life can be tough, particularly as you’re learning. In most cases it seems as though those learning to trade become consumed by the process, not doing what they set out to in the first place. Here I share a little insight into my thinking on the topic.

Something that’s not often widely discussed. Although an interesting factor that contributes to price action within the markets. Today I answer a question from Chris on twitter about how many runners there are in a race and approaching that situation.

I’ve had to wait till the very last weekend of the season to get my best football trade completed.

It was a long trade as well. I started looking seriously at it on the 4th May and it will complete tomorrow the 21st of May.

It all revolves around fixture congestion that can occur at this time of year. Throw in a few other factors and you end up with a fantastic trade.

More knowledge can be a hindrance when trading. In my quest to become even better at what I do, I understand a lot more about horse racing now.

But that knowledge halts right at the door of opinion. The numbers and what I trade rather than my opinion of a horse and it’s ability.

Essentially I trade order flow and while I may look at certain characteristics of a race and individual horses. I don’t let opinion overrule my trading.

Obviously, there is a benefit in knowing a bit about racing, but not too much. You can actually trade a race with no knowledge at all.

The video I uploaded last week was quite complex from a decision making perspective so I wanted to balance it out with a much simpler trade.

This trade exploits some key characteristics in a market to trade profitable without the chaos of a multiple decision making.
