[BetfairTraders] Videos

We first released advanced dutching way back in 2006 and expanded its capability from there.

Rather than just allow you to place a dutch bet such, as you find on normal dutching calculators, Bet Angel brings a range of other capabilities to the mix.

This includes nominating a profit to produce a defined payoff on a range of selections as well as the ability to vary that payoff between individual selections in the market.

This gives you a huge range of options when it comes to covering a range of selections in a market and the payoff you require.

The overround is so small now on a range of markets that this is quite a viable strategy now.

In a recent video, I hinted that I run a dutching strategy and that brought forward a lot of questions on dutching and what Bet Angel can do.

The answer is a lot, even if you ignore the automated stuff. I’ve recorded a separate video on the actual tool itself which will partner this, but here is a quick overview of dutching for those of you that haven’t explored it, or the advanced dutching calculator in Bet Angel

We had the Dublin racing festival for the first time last week and it proved to be an interesting market to trade on Betfair, for all the wrong reasons.

I’m hoping it’s a bit more predictable next year!

Are the betting exchange markets getting harder, easier, more efficient, less efficient?

The answer may surprise you as the market appears to be getting more and less efficient at the exactly same time.

In this video I give you the simple answer and a much more in-depth answer.

The market has constantly changed, albeit subtlety over a long period of time. I also summarise this in this video.

The way I trade on Betfair can seem very confusing to people looking in from the outside, but it’s incredibly effective.

In 2017 I traded all 52 weeks and didn’t have a losing week, yet I could only post a result after it happened.

Why is this? What do I do and why is it so effective?

On several trips to the US, I’ve spoken to many different people in an effort to promote the concept of a exchanges or prediction markets.

More in the hope of moving the model forward. Here is what I learnt and where we currently are.

When trading football on Betfair it’s easy to misinterpret exactly what could happen next.

Football is highly variable and that leads to some unusual stats.

If you are seeking value then you are looking to figure out what the price should be at the start of the match.

But if you are trading you will want to profit from whether a goal is or isn’t scored at some point. That happens in a way that you may not be aware of.

In this video, we explore the gap between what most people think is the chance of a goal and what actually happens.

I didn’t do one last year because I ran out of time and then the video wouldn’t have been timely, so I thought I do something to the camera to talk about 2017 and what I plan for 2018.

I thinking about having a slightly different year next year as I reach for non-Betfair trading goals.

In my video of last week I summarised an opportunity that you may want to try and find at a Grand Slam, we had a good example this week.

If you are trading on Betfair and want a low risk Tennis trade then this is a strategy you may be interested in.

Whether I’m trading a Tennis match or not I capture data on it for later analysis. This allows me to understand how the match actually traded and also if I could have done better.

I think one may have appeared on a video before? But the graphs are a good way of visualising the twists and turns of a match and how it affects your profitability as you trade it.

It also allows you to see where the major swings took place and may give you a clue to where this could be in future matches.

Anyhow, this is how I look at a match after it’s finished.

I just grabbed one from the archives, so don’t read much into my analysis as it’s off the cuff, but designed to show you what I’m looking at.

You can export more detailed data from a spreadsheet or the automation within Bet Angel.

Strewth mate, it’s only January and we have the first Tennis grand slam of the year.

The timezone makes a lot of matches unfavourable for people in the UK, but there is often a lot of action you can catch up on in the Australian open.

Unfortunately, you can’t do it automatically as Betfair will not be supplying the live scores via the API so Bet Angel can’t display them. you will have to enter them manually.

You will still be able to use all the other Tennis features and the first grand slam of the year is a chance to flex your Tennis trading muscles.

I came across a comment this week which was asking for some commentary on a Betfair chart / graph.

Here is a simple overview and discussion of a Betfair trade I did this week. It was a fairly simple trade and I didn’t make a great deal from it, but I have used it to highlight some key points in the chart that was of interest.

The FA CUP has been reducing in significance every year for a few year now. Everybody will mention its decline this weekend and it’s true it has really slipped down the list.

Liquidity will be low but the nature of the 3rd round now will present some opportunities.

I have discussed it before, so this video summarises this and links to the in-depth videos.

I know this isn’t a consideration for many of you, but I will trade the markets over Christmas.

It’s a pretty big week for sports and therefore it’s a big week for me which will be a big contributor to the year.

Christmas markets can be quite challenging and rewarding at the same time. So in this video, I lay out how the Betfair trading schedule is likely to play out this week and what you can do if you want to trade it.

OK I know I should be talking about Betfair trading but financial markets are a big part of my life and there are parallels where.

Everybody is talking about Bitcoin so I thought I’d chip in. I’ve got some experience in manias / bubbles and technology as well. That was my last ‘proper’ job!

There is actually a well define curve that these things tend to follow and while you can’t value a bitcoin very well you can look to benefactors for a decent investment.

I am using a VPS on this video – https://www.betangel.com/vps/

I love my Gadgets, if it has two batteries I’ll probably be on the pre-order list.

I’ve used all manner of things to see if I can enhance my Betfair trading. You may have seen me use a leap motion device, touchscreens and an iPad.

I’m constantly looking to see what I can do to improve my trading edge or get a better way of executing my trades.

At the end of the day if you don’t invest your time and money in new things, whether it be a strategy or way of executing it, you will fall behind somebody that is. Plus, I love playing with new tech!

I had a browse of my recent Betfair trading videos and found this narrated one on a Horse Racing market that I thought would interest you.

When you arrive in a market you need a ‘theme’. Something that you think is going to happen. From there you need to look for confirming factors to manage your trade.

That is what I am doing in this video.

Thanks for your comments last week on the ‘Jeff Stelling’ xG (Expected goals) video.

Given the interest, I thought I would expand it a little to discuss it’s positive and negative points and how you would likely use it if you were trading a football match on Betfair.

When I was young I was a bit cautious and didn’t take many risks. It was a mistake. But I eventually learnt it wasn’t my fault and that, in reality, I had been victim to other peoples motives.

Eventually, I managed to break out of that mode of thinking and way of life and never looked back.

I’ve done so many amazing things and met so many amazing people but none of it would have happened if I hadn’t been prepared to take a bit of risk and open some doors. Betfair trading and Bet Angel wouldn’t have been created if I hadn’t have done this.

That thinking led to understand investment, trading and trading Betfair better. But it has also positively influenced what I do and that’s why I always talk positively. The lesson in the story, don’t let others stifle your creativity and energy.

If they do, walk away from them because you are on the wrong path.

Here is a quick video showing you how to replicate the make market function on the one-click screen but on the ladder, using a servant.

Servant’s allow you to inherit many different characteristics. So you could add a whole load of these conditions and parameters to a Servant like this to allow Bet Angel to dynamically manage the audio.

There seems to be a little audio lag on the video. Not sure where that came from but it doesn’t detract too much from the overall narration.

I did a lot of analysis many years ago on how to price a football match and ended up not just looking at the final result but also shots and the chance of any shot going in.

Expected goals or xG has now been popularised and used in the media and it’s useful to understand exactly what it means and how it is constructed.

I no longer go through the process of doing it myself as there are loads of really good sites out there that collect, analysis and distribute this data.

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.

You may want to check your locks after this video!

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.

The custom column feature of Bet Angel is pretty neat on its own. It allows you to create a custom view of the one click with functions that you define. In one click Bet Angel can do many things.

We have now taken that to the next level by allowing you to use a Servantâ„¢ in the custom column as well.

It gives you huge flexibility at the touch of a button. In this video I show you how to set up a servant in the custom column section of Bet Angel.

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.
