    BETDAQ Trading Challenge - Day 1

    Thanks for posting this blog. I'm very curious to see how you do on Betdaq. I regularly experience similar problems on Betfair through Geekstoy. Sometimes when I press the button to submit a bet it just freezes without placing the bet thankfully. I've learned to unfreeze it I need to click once on the x in the top right corner. This doesn't close the app but it does unfreeze it which allows me to continue trading.

    Okay no worries @Tomas thanks for looking. It's a shame you lost them as I've convinced myself if I watch you're vids over and over your skills will somehow magically transfer to me. 😁

    @zitlor I have lost these videos, the only stuff I have recorded is already available on my YouTube channel. I'm not sure I can do more videos any time soon...

    Hi @rutpet, welcome to the community!

    Strategy in the making

    Couple of further points. On price 2.00 and below to calculate percentage take off 1 point ie 2.00 - 1.00 = 1.00 25 percent of 1.00 = .25. Also draw down was 33pts not 66pts.

    Strategy in the making

    Would welcome insights on the following. Strategy is around 1040 to 1140 am go to racing post website and look for races where favourite is priced 1.5 to 3 5 in forecast. Check current price oddschecker if it is higher than forecast price disregard. If favourite is within the criteria add to list. One minute to race start check price oddschecker if price has dropped by 25 percent compared to racing post forecast it is a lay bet no trading involved Price must be lower than 2.5 and higher than 1.5 to bet. Over 300 bets to date profit +94 pts using fibonacci staking, drawdown max to date 66 pts. Two methods of back to lay one is 10 mins before start place back bet, lay bet hopefully with profit 3 mins before race starts. 20 percent stop loss. Staking is same for both bets profit comes from winners with locked in amount. Early days for me using this strategy but 18 percent up in 4 days with demo account. 2nd strategy will follow if results look positive.

  14. Hello everyone, what a fantastic resource you have created Tomas. I am new to trading but have spent a few years punting, matched betting etc. So really looking forward to improving my skills in the trading area.

    September started well but I hit a rough patch about mid way and seemed to be going backwards so I cut my stake back to bare minimum and tried to find some consistency in results and style. Overall I'm happy that I made further progress and I hope to be able to gradually increase my stake again in October. @Tomas I read your entire 25 challenge blog. Amazing how you built the bank. Like magic to someone at my level 🙂. You mentioned that you posted some greyhound videos that were subsequently deleted by Youtube. Would it be possible to post up these or any other greyhound vids again? You're already providing lots so if you're too busy don't worry about it. Newbie to Newbie Tips I know sooner or later I'll sustain a big loss from being caught in play. To reduce that probability I do the following at the start of each trading session. On my desktop PC I keep Betfair open on the cashout page - in case of a geekstoy crash I keep the following page open to check Betfair for problems - https://status.developer.betfair.com/ I also keep the cashout page open on my tablet - in case of computer crash I don't do this but I've read Tomas suggest keeping Betdaq open to quickly use to offset liability in case of a Betfair crash If I ever make any money at this I'll invest in what seems the best protection - a 4G enabled device and I'll keep that open on the cashout page

    Hello another new guy

    Welcome @quish I'm a newbie also. I only escaped practice mode last month. In case you're not already aware of this, you can get the full horse racing experience in practice mode in the USA and South Africa markets. That is, the video of the race is viewable without placing a real bet.

    Many thanks @eightbo for the great advice. I've been trying to reduce the biggest losses but haven't looked at all at trying to get the safer but less likely bets matched. I'll look closely at the market from tomorrow to see if I can find opportunities to put your advice into practice.

    You've learnt in 3 months what took me 5 yrs: Learning not to lose longer-term. Next step for you here is to increase your selectivity. Analyse your successful trades and also your worst trades and start getting rid of all the naff entries. I can't say for certain as I haven't seen your trading style but on small stakes you should be doing much better in the gh mkts as people give away a lot more value with their fivers and tenners than they do with bigger stakes. Try to prioritise entries which are safer but less likely to get matched. On the bets that get matched you can keep a real right stop if it goes wrong most of the time and if it's starts randomly working in your direction you can hold it. You'll get fantastic risk / reward and a few of those trades is better than 1000 breakeven trades for a fraction of the effort.
  25. Been replaying these just before bed, doesn't seem to matter what trading vid I start on I always end up with that first one on my phone when I wake up lol. Here's another good video if you've not seen it:

    Newbie's 3rd month

    I thought I'd submit a blog to support this site and to create a record for myself of how much, if any, progress I make. I'd originally planned to trade footy but by chance saw a video on horse racing in May 2019. It looked fascinating so I placed my first ever real trade on the horses on June 1st followed by greyhounds a couple of weeks later. I quickly quit the hounds as the market jumped up and down so much it gave me palpitations 🙂. For the first 2 months I did the large majority of my trading in practice mode as I was so bad. I could have closed my eyes, pressed the button and easily done better. Not even being able to do as well as random probability was disheartening but I persevered and something changed in early August. I focused on low liquidity horses and started braking even. Here's the first half of August. Bolstered by my new found success (of only losing 74p) I decided to try the hounds again. Here's how I'd gotten on by the end of August. I'd made a whopping 314 pennies. A first step on the road to my 250k Betfair fortune. I decided to treat myself and spend all my winnings at once on (half) a glass of beer 😀. Joking aside I was delighted to reach break even as it allowed me to escape practice mode and play for real money albeit tiny amounts. Newbie to Newbie Tips If you want to record your trading I've found the free program Flashback Express to be great. Avidemux is a good free video editor.
  27. Many thanks for putting together that list @eightbo I only expected one or two links. I'd actually followed your suggestion and found the chat with traders channel myself - it'd be great to hear a successful sports trader like Thomas being interviewed on that. The rest of your links are new to me so I'll enjoy exploring them. For anyone who may be interested in this type of content - here are a couple of links to free trading audiobooks. I really rate the first book. Trading for a living Trading in the Zone

    Betfair outages protection

    Actually, Betdaq is not that bad. An average market can absorb hundreds of pounds easily. If you offer a good price (which may be quite a good idea to do in emergency), the market should take it. Except for closing your position with another exchange, I don't see any other back up plan against Betfair outage.
