    Puzzles by scalping basics

    Afternoon everyone, newbie here. Sorry if this is obvious. Can someone please help me with the basics of scalping? I'm sure that I'm close to understanding it but something is just not sinking in. I'm using the basic definition of scalping as taking a 1 tick profit or loss. Using today's 15:35 at Newbury as an example. No greening up to make things easy for now. Shortly before the off, Palace Pier was favourite with a back price of 1.56 and a lay price of 1.57. The tick size for these odds is 0.01 Assuming we were scalping this selection, are the following steps correct? A: Place back bet @ 1.56 B: Place a lay offer @ (back odds-tick size) = 1.55 At this point I have a matched back bet and a lay bet waiting to be matched. As I see it there can be three outcomes. A: The lay price is matched at 1.55. B: The race is ready to start so I can cancel the unmatched bet and lay at 1.57. What I can't get my head around is option 😄 The lay price drifts out to 1.58 and I have to take a two point loss. I can understand that losses are part of scalping but this flies in the face of the "one tick profit or loss" mantra. I feel that I'm so close, if someone can give me the final push it would be so much appreciated. Regards Bd.

    Scalping guys

    Scalping guys, I had a perception today, the entries at the bottom of the well and at the odds of crossings are safer, wait for these supports to be tested, if the market does not pass it usually has a correction for the opposite side it is time to enter and get the profit! watch . Like this post please to get the vippp content

    Scalping

    Scalping can be done in almost every market where the money is coming in. So, if money is matched, you can do scalping. I usually trade according to the behaviour of the market and how the money flows into it. Supports, cross overs, resistance, etc. are useful but not necessary if you are just looking for a quick 1 tick.

    Scalping

    I am not Tomas but I would like to give my one cent to this if you allow me to 🙂 Scalping is easier if there is simply more liquidity on both sides, that is main thing what I look for and then I check and look for these markets or certain times when price is more likely to be stable for a bit and does not jump around that much. Support from one side is good if am maybe not sure about stability of the market so I tend to enter only one that supported side so I have safer exit just in case and when I am filled on one side, I simply offer my exit with tick or two or more, depending on orderflow.

    dúvida

    Good afternoon, how are you? I am Brazilian and I operate in live, but I would like to learn pre live, I watch your videos and I really admire your way of working on favorites, I want to learn to operate on them too because I have more liquidity, I was in doubt in the course on scalp, what do you most look at scalping market aggression? Do you rely on support and resistance as security to place your stakes?

    Hello all

    Just a quick message to say hello. I have been using betfair & A Geeks Toy for years but mainly a lot of matched betting and arbing. I have never managed to consistently trade or scalp pre race but i think i am finally in the right place to really knuckle down and get my head around it. I understand the basics but really struggle with reading the money coming into the market and lack a bit of discipline, hopefully I'm in the right place to improve my knowledge.
