BetAngel

You may have seen an iceberg order in a Betfair trading market at some point.

In this video, we use a servant to create an iceberg order then scale out the trade.

I often consider myself a creative problem solver than a risk taker. I essentially looking in the markets for problems, even complex ones, then try to simplify the task to something that is much more achievable.

I’ve been thinking of ways of explaining this but the answer came to me on my regular trip to the gym, where I often have to wait for the bikes to be unlocked.

Despite there being 10,000 possible combinations I was able to solve the combination of the lock without force simply by observing the ‘lock combination market’.

You can do the same when you look at the Betfair trading market.

People accidentally insert biases and this causes them to show their hand, whatever you are looking at. Whether it’s a financial market, a betfair / sports market or a shed full of bikes.

In this video we take things a step further on from the simple process of creating a custom column and put it to use in a Greyhound trading market.

We switch the Servant on and off and see it, in its active, pending and stopped state.

Because we use a servant we can trade several runners at once without having to try and keep track of things and move around the screen. We can just focus on the best selections to trade and let the Servant get on with it.

Here is an interesting trade on horse racing from this week.

I tend to go against the trend, they produce some of the best trades you can do. But for every selection heading in one direction, there is probably something heading in the other. In this case, there were two heading in and that was helping send the favourite out.

You will also see how I hold my position for it to mature. I don’t jump in and out all the time and try and second guess.

As long as the position holds, I’ll hold and that’s often key when betfair trading.

A quick example of using a Servant to spot and execute a trade in a market.

Here I DON’T use the pre-assigned keystrokes for the servant I have defined a set of rules and activate it simply by pressing a button the keyboard.

A quick video showing you how you can use a bet angel servant to scale in and out of a trade in one click.

This is helping when trading on Betfair as it will mean you get a good average entry and exit price. I already do this in other videos but now I can do this with just one click instead of loads.

It’s the time of year when sleep can take a back seat in favour of some quality oversea’s racing.

The Breeders cup in the USA and the Melbourne Cup at Flemington in Australia are huge meetings and with that comes huge liquidity.

I started trading both some years ago but not very successfully but gradually learnt the nuances of each meeting and started trading them quite aggressively and plan to do so this year.

Here is some background to both meetings and a personal account of Del Mar racecourse.

The big new feature in Bet Angel is a ‘Servant’.

What is a Servant, what does it do and why would you use it?

In this video, I give you an overview of exactly what the concept of a servant is and where you are likely to use it.

After a lot of hard work, we are delighted to introduce the new version of Bet Angel.

It contains a brand new feature called a ‘Servant’ ™

Watch the videos in the playlist at the end for a full description and tutorials.

This unique feature allows you do many things and will help you take your trading to a completely new level and outcompete other traders.

This isn’t like a normal bot or automation, it’s a whole new way of trading.

One advantage of sports markets on betfair is that you can turnover spectacular amounts with relatively small banks.

Trading on Betfair allows you to ‘leverage’ your stake and bank because of the quantity of markets that are available and the process of instant settlement. This process allows you to recycle your money through the market at high frequency.

Because of this characteristic, even with a tiny bank, you can put many, many, many millions through the market over the course of the year. If you can do that with a positive expectancy of any amount your bank will multiply quite rapidly.

To reach ‘millionaire’ status quite quickly you just have to focus on trading enough markets in the right way. Do that and you will have staked millions.

bet angel has a number of tools available to aid you specifically in the process of trading and managing multi positions in multiple markets.

You must focus on your expectancy first though. There isn’t much point in turning over millions if you can’t do it at break-even or profitably. Never forgot that!

Tomorrow morning (UK time) we will see Winx run in the Cox Plate and despite being 10,500 miles away (at Moonee Valley, Melbourne, Australia), it’s probably a race worth checking out.

It reminds me of the fun and games I had with Black Caviar a few years ago.

If you look at any betting market it will contain information on what chance the market is giving each individual participant of winning the event.

Back in the early days the ‘book’ was slack and there was quite a bit of room for odds to move around. But now the market is very ‘tight’ and any movement in one direction will trigger a movement in the other direction.

In this video we look at the market, at book % and how odds moving in one direction can influence odds in the other direction.

We then look at a football match and use this characteristic to predict where the price of the draw will be given certain movements elsewhere.

While I love trading on Betfair I’ve also picked up a deeper interest in the underlying sports. So here is a video that isn’t specifically about a trading strategy or bet angel, but about the sport itself!

There are a number of racecourses in the UK that were built, constructed or run on public land. Curiously Ascot racecourse surrounds public heath land so the public still have access to the heath.

Several times the heath has come under threat of turning completely private, but for the moment the public still have full access to the heath land, apart from on key race days.

Pure, ‘real’ trading is about getting the balance behind profits and losses and that can be achieved in a number of ways.

In this video we discuss this concept and the way you can be more effective by deciding what to trade and not, but also realising what actually makes a good trade or not.

I was digging through my betfair trading videos this week and saw this one which was interesting because it has two different, but important messages, in it.

The first is to do with establishing a position and the second is to do with exiting in such a way you don’t influence your exit negatively.

Tipping has never been seen in the best of light but currently, there is a lot of press around ‘tipping’ services that exploit people by recommending bets that are almost certain to lose.

This has caused a lot of fuss in the industry and forced some people to close their affiliate program’s or significantly tighten the terms.

I discuss this in the video along with my broader views.

You may, or may not, be familiar with the in-play trader interface. But there are a number of hidden aspects to it.

From just assessing a market to actually trading it, you can use the inplay trader in a number of ways.

What I’ve aimed to do in this video is give you an overview of what it does, how to find it and some things that it reveals that you may not be aware of.

You can also combine it with the one-click screen and semi-automated functions to really get the most out of this useful tool.

I do a basic trade using it here for demonstration purposes, but it’s best to select a runner, a market and a strategy rather than just doing stuff ad-hoc.

October brings a whole range of racing to the cards but quite notably the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

If you are used to trading a variety of markets the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe will bring something a bit different to the mix of your trading on Betfair.

It’s a big horse race, but there are loads of other big races sandwiched around it over the weekend.

Even if you don’t trade it, it’s worth looking at.

In this video, I explain more about how you can trade time on a football match but also explain how, by focusing on trading time, you effectively shift your trade to ask some more fundamental questions about the match you are actually trading.

There are a number of betfair trading strategies on football that are related in some part to the trading time value / time decay.

Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so…

But who cares when you can trade it.

Time only goes in one direction and that’s handy if you are trading and trying to take advantage of where the odds will go.

This doesn’t work in even driven sports, but does in time-limited sports like football where you know how much time is left.

Of course there is an underlying value that can send your trade to a loss, but understanding that will make allow you to decide what risk you want to take.

See the other video we have done on the same subject to get a better idea of how to frame risk.

The very first Betfair trading strategy I deployed was actually using bookmakers. I would get a good price from them and lay off on the Betfair exchange.

Technically I was doing arbitrage or ‘arbing’ as people often call it. I used this base to go from ‘risk-free ‘ betting to opting to take some risk with trading.

In this video, I describe that journey and how matched betting is very different from trading. But essentially I started from there before figuring out that actually, I should trade the markets to achieve better scale.

When trading on Betfair you want to get one order matched then another. You can put them in at the same time but often it makes sense to only put one in when one has filled.

In this video, I’m scalping and doing so initially with the offset bet going in after one side has completely filled then I using batch orders to get the opposing side to fill as the initial order does.

It’s a neat trick to use to get your order to fill quickly and only when matched as part of a larger order. You could split an order of £10 into 5 batches for example.

Bit of a ramble, but here is a video on the limitations with sports trading markets, but also about risk and reward and staking when trading and scaling.

I’ve tried to give you some insight into my views on stakes and the market and why you should always try to match your stake to the market. To exceed it puts your trade in jeopardy.

It also ultimately limits your ability to scale unless the markets grow, so that’s the theme I start on.
