Road to profit series #1- Interview with a profitable Betfair trader #4

The last in the road to profit series where Ryan from Betfair Trading Community speaks with profitable pro traders to see how they became the profitable Betfair Exchange traders that have become

I put together a small group of 4 people and I asked them the same questions

Why did you start trading?
How long do you spend researching trades?
How many trades do you do a day / week?
What you know know now you wish you knew when you started?
What’s been your biggest realisation on the road to being profitable?
What does your trading day look like?
One thing you couldn’t trade without?

For those that don’t want to watch the video in full the answers to the questions are:

Why did you start trading?
I guess like most people my journey began with Matched Betting back in the summer of 2015 (my boy got me onto that lol). However I soon got bored of setting up many different accounts with the bookies so turned to Trading in Oct 2015

How long do you spend researching trades?
I don’t spend that much time researching trades as my filters at BTC are very profitable, plus most get set up on my bot… I use Bet Angel

How many trades on average do you do a day / week?
I don’t do many manual trades per week… Possibly no more than 8-10 per week. I load whatever automation trades I have onto my VPS daily which could be anything from 1-20 a day depending how busy the Football Fixture is.

What do you know now you wish you knew when you started?
Great question this one and it always seems to surface with these types of questionnaires and I’ve thought long and hard about this… It would be “Not to chase bright shiny objects” i.e. stop buying new courses or subscriptions to any other service because BTC has everything you should need to profit with trading. The Stats Software is amazing and I often refer to it as the “Cash Cow” lol

What’s been your biggest realisation on the road to being profitable?
That consistent teams doing consistent things gets consistent results… As experienced traders all we need to do is learn how to extract the best value from the filtered results

What does your trading day look like?
First thing in the morning between 7 & 8am I grind some fresh coffee beans and make myself a decent coffee, from there I download my filters and copy them into my Excel workbook, then I select/highlight my days trades and enter all automation into Bet Angel. After that I then set reminders on Sofascore for all/any manual trades and then update all previous days results into my spreadsheet and ensure all filters are performing as they should be. This generally gets all wrapped up by 10/11 o’clock and I go about my usual day… This generally involves going up to my allotment, especially I now have my trading shed built up there lol

One thing you couldn’t trade without?
This has to be the easiest of all questions asked and I didn’t have to think about it… I couldn’t trade without my BTC stats software!!! Well I could but probably couldn’t be bothered doing all the additional research lol
