    1000 pre-inplay horse racing markets

    After yesterday madness aka bank holiday I decided not to trade today and have a day off. But in the end traded 14 markets with a betting volume of 17k in matched bets and a ROI of 0.28. From that data you can work out the approximate pnl by yourself . Here is a bit unusual screenshot of best trade form yesterday. Unusual because you can't see the favorite as it is scrolled up. And here is a tip. You can see as well a scratch trade of 4 pounds. On days like these when there are too many races it is a good thing to make a scratch trade in advance in every market. This way you assure youself access to betfair video which as you know requires you to place a minimum 2 pound bet to watch live video. I think this is wrong from their side. Provided that you made a significant betting volume or betting points they should grant you access an hour or so ahead. Or by some other means because the way they do it now is incommoding traders at times. That minimum bet is worth nothing. May be for new users that might be ok but not so ok for loyal customers as they call me.

    DAY 77 Markets traded: 15 greyhound races ( unmatched positions on 3 of them ) Profit: +£3,02 Bank: £82,69 Commentary: Very good day. We were talking today about strike rate and a bit about return for certain stakes in our chat group. This is a great example from me which inspire even myself. I did not trade greyhounds for couple days so I am very pleased how they treated me today. Profit and loss from today Best situation that can occur if you had your entry and exit well positioned

    These 3 days I was on my phone trading football so here I am now with results. They are in form of profit and loss screenshots so it should be self explanatory. DAY 74 - Trading with football fan on my side while having a beer in pub. DAY 75 - This was just my evening pick because I had not time for trading during the day. DAY 76 - First trade was made when I was visiting relatives ( phone trading ), then everything else was done on my laptop. Here you can see on this last profit and loss how I tested one strategy ( on Charleroi match ) to lay over 1,5 and so on, but did mistake and it was my first attempt. It was disaster I regret that completely, otherwise I would be in profit. Tomorrow I already know that I will be tired because of busy day coming from early morning so maybe I will take a look at some football trading and will make some buck on one or two. My balance after these 3 days is: £79,67

    Hey Tommy, I just read your whole blog. I've been trading greyhounds myself and I recognize all the things you say, I've been caught in 2 or 3 early suspended markets and it has made me super cautious! As soon as I've bagged a few ticks I'm out usually 50seconds before the bell. I also find myself sitting just outside the price range and it gets matched a tick in front of me only to shoot up 10 ticks haha! I think I'm definitely being to cautious and missing a lot of extra profit it's funny how you know your holding yourself back but still can't fix the issue( speaking for myself I mean) I enjoyed your blog anyway I'll keep up with your posts.

    DAY 73 Markets traded: 7 horse races, 2 greyhound races, 1 football Profit: +£3,25 Bank: £63,03 Commentary: I had attempts to lay the field today and it did not work well. I had to look for other way how to earn money today, so I did little research in football section and found match with Zagreb ( Croatian team ) and that covered all my loss + little extra on top. I am really thinking about getting more involved with football. It is more stress free environment when I set and follow my rules.

    DAY 72 Part 1 - Late night trading football Markets traded: 3 Profit: +£5,40 Bank: £58,17 Part 2 - Horse racing during the day Markets traded: 5 Profit: +£1,61 Bank: £59,78  Commentary: That football night trading session was about checking statistics and checking if there is anything with higher probability to happen because I had not live stream on for these late football matches I had to depend just on statistics and live data written on betfair from actual match. During day I tried to look at horses mostly because Dan posted his plan for today I was curious if he is right about it, unfortunately I saw that first two were not going according to his plan at all so I kept going my own way and made some profit. I had to stop trading very early because I had lags from internet connection which took few seconds up to 20 seconds lag which is completely unacceptable for trading purposes.

    DAY 71 Markets traded: 16 ( one without being matched ) Profit: -£2,93 Bank: £51,75 Commentary: I really enjoyed trading today. Nothing special, even I would say less than average performance but I enjoyed my time in markets. This is what I aim for truly, to be able to enjoy myself while making money. I had loss today because as you can see on profit and loss screenshot I had loss 3GBP which is my whole stake and that is because of market got suspended a bit earlier and that was not my fault so no harm to my trading style. I am happy with my result 😊 Actually I am in profit If I look at my last trading day profit and loss from today then I am in 1p profit ☺️

    DAY 70 Markets traded: 5 football matches Profit: +£2,94 Bank: £54,68 Commentary: Football day for me for a change without any other sport mixing in. It could be better if I would take profit over £3,50 where I took later just £0,50 but except that it was a good day.

    The April seems the most volatile month overall. So many out of the blue moves and many poor markets. But on the other side the moves are very deep and strong if a trend is developed. I find it very challenging. Best results so far were from Aintree 4m+ races. Today went aggressive a few times, too risky for my liking but with a bit of luck it paid out in the end. Usually don't do Sundays, but sort of "had to" because of yesterday's positive but poor result. Placed to many lay the field bets. Usually maidens, beginners and novices are the most suitable for that and less so Hcaps. I either placed them too late or on the wrong races. Will have to analyze bet history statement to see where I stand in terms of p&l.

    DAY 69 Markets traded: 18 greyhounds +1 football match Profit: +£4,77 Bank: £51,74 Commentary: I wanted to trade yesterday but could not make is so I am here today with some positive results. As promised here is screenshot where I am matched at 10.0 for just 0,40p on clear winner on US horse race in-play and look at that profit This one is a football match from tonight which I selected after few minutes checking stats and it was worth it. I used £4 stake in here to get that profit.

  18. Yesterday I had a chance to trade greyhounds for almost 3 hours and this is the result: Nice and steady. I think the evening racing has a better liquidity but these afternoon races were good as well. Btw, I'm not using big stakes to achieve these results. Greyhounds are nice for their high volatility which is good when using smaller stakes. With a small stake you can achieve a nice ROI. Something like this for example: 13.64% ROI on my maximum exposure in this market... On the other hand, you can't scale too much. On the other other hand, there are tons of these markets every day. I think over a hundred races every day, every few minutes. Stats: Current Equity:

    Yes, there were opportunities to leave, quite many but I left that trade open because my loved one on my side wanted miracle trade and believed that it would turn back at some point. I left it open just to let her see and also I was a bit curious if she may influence market with her positive thoughts 😇

    Much bigger danger is to let the loss go so high. I bet there was many possibilities to exit earlier...

    When did I ever say trading was easy? You carry on as you are, seeing as you seem to know all the patterns in the markets from day to day. I wont comment on your blog again 👍

    Despite several scratch trades early on (most would have been profitable too if I waited just a bit longer), I had a reasonable day.
  24. David

    Tommy and his early trading

    So, you backed at 7.0 and layed at 20.0? I guess that is the danger of low liquid markets; highly volatile.

    @Tomas Thanks for the reaction. It took me 5 hours to figure out why I made a loss. There is a certain pattern on Mondays either before or after major festivals. The trends are different to a typical Monday. Something I did not anticipate. So, even though I lost a bit, I have learned about how seasonality affects trading. It's all part of the learning experience.

    @billylong I notice that you only reply to my blog when I am willing to admit my mistakes. Yet, I have never seen any results posted by yourself. Why don't you post your profits if you think that trading is easy?

    DAY 68 Markets traded: 32 Profit: -£2,28 Bank: £40,54 Commentary: Good day was ending with almost 0 profit when I decided to listen to my loved one and created miracle trade. Yes, truly miracle, you will see how it went from odds 7.0 to...when I entered on back side 🤣 strangely I was ok with that result when I took -£19,76 before that race started. A bit later I did not listen to my loved one and pretended to be a in-play wizard so I got it almost all back when I had to stop because there were no more UK and Irish horse races going on. I had loss on one horse race, about £2,50 which hurt me much more than what I had after that miracle trade went wrong. Here is that miracle trade when race was about to start. I repeat I entered at 7.00 🤣

    April 5th, 7th & 8th Greyhound Trading Update

    I had a bot running on the dogs which was profitable to start with but became unprofitable so I turned it off. I think there is still profit there just need to come back to it.

    April 5th, 7th & 8th Greyhound Trading Update

    Many times I have been caught out on early suspension. really put me off doing the greyhounds for while. Can grind out little and often results all day then get caught out once and it takes all the profit off you again.
