Betfair trading | Betfair betting exchange outage – Peter Webb | Bet Angel
#BettingPeople Interview JAMES MOORE BHA Investigator 1/3
Betfair, the worlds biggest betting exchange, suffered another outage on Saturday and the Betfair trading world was up in arms.
Bet Angel works on the Betfair betting exchange and also the Betdaq betting exchange. So my response was simply to switch my entire Betfair trading activity to betangel for Betdaq, but there is a lot of discussions to be had around these issues.
I have made my views on this apparent many times before, but I thought it was maybe about time to upload a video to record them while it was still fresh in mind.
You can learn a lot about the market and about other participants, or their lack of participation when the site goes down. So I see a site outage as a opportunity to learn about those things, to gather data, watch what happens and how the market changes.
But obviously, I would prefer if there were no outages at all. But to be honest, its would be exceptional to never have one.
Any how, here are my view on it. Join the discussion in the forum.
