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.

Here is an interesting trade from this week. Some markets are dull and un-interesting and the video would be of me trying to find an opportunity or following a trend, but this is a real mixture of things.

Guineas weekend coincidences with the Berkshire Hathaway AGM so I’m always reminded of my pilgrimage to Omaha to meet Warren Buffett.

There are quite a few life stories in there, so I thought it was worth sharing.

I promised to do a follow-up on the previous video if there was enough interest. So here is the reveal.

In the previous video I dropped in a ton of clues on how it was done. But it didn’t really explain the detail behind it.

So in this video, I will reveal how it was done, some simple logic you can use to replicate it. and the maths behind the solution.

You will now be able to use it to impress some friends or get them to part with some money while asking them to prove it isn’t random.

I haven’t put up a full blown trade for a little while so one is overdue. This is detailed trade trend trade at Newcastle.

The favourite is getting a lot of support and continues to do so. I identify a number of key areas in the trade which I use to add or remove parts of my trade from the market.

It’s a decent trade and demonstrates some key elements of reading a market.

It’s the Jumps finale this weekend at Sandown and it usually produces some good opportuntities. But I missed it two years ago, but for a very good reason.

Even then I managed to find 15 minutes to trade the feature race!

I did a blog post recently about how I and the markets have changed over ten years and what I expect to do in the next ten.

https://www.betangel.com/blog_wp/2017/04/15/ten-years-apart/

There are some interesting stats in there about how the market has shifted and how I’ve had to adjust so I thought a follow up video was in order.

I experimented recently with recording to the camera and switching to the software.

I did a very simple pre-off back to lay bot for a demonstration. Will have to fix the exposure in future, but generally worked so I may try this format in future when talking about the software or a trade.

But doing a simple bot like this can teach you a bit about the way the market works and avoid you from jumping in and out at random.

Using a nominated selection in the automation will help you focus on picking a steamer rather than this bot which is random.
