How can be Betfair liquidity explained? In this article I will show you how liquidity flows from one market to another. This will help you to understand when are the peak periods in a horse racing market. If you have a market opened in your software it may look lazy and without much activity. The reason is usually there is a previous market still in-play. The money and people’s attention is attracted to the previous market. So the current market may have lack of liquidity and activity.
Betfair Liquidity Explained Video Description
- 0:11 – You can see the previous market is not finished yet. That means money is still on this live market. The market I’ve opened in Geeks Toy is quite lazy because there’s just not the whole pool of money on it yet.
- 0:46 – Activity is rising slowly as the previous market goes to finish.
- 0:54 – The previous market is finished and I close the video.
- 1:01 – Now you can see much bigger activity in the market. Money is not split between two races and the full potential can go to the current market. The frequency and size of bets are quickly rising.
In the video, I have showed how the money start pouring into the market once the previous market is finished. This is really good to know because at this time, the market starts to live the most. If there is a clashing card on the day, it may negatively affect markets because money is split between them. I always have a quick look to the daily card to see what is going on that day. Sometimes I avoid trading on races which are clashing with each other. Such a market behaves differently and it doesn’t achieve it’s fullest potential. The biggest pain is to trade a delayed market which is also clashing with the previous one.
