    Why WowApp?

    When someone joins our trading chat on WowApp I sometimes receive a question about why am I using WowApp and not any of established applications like WhatsApp, Messenger, Discord, Skype, Slack, Team Speak, etc. Let me briefly explain, there are several reasons: WowApp shares 70-80% of their revenue with members. The revenue comes from various sources, such as - digital advertising, commissions from online shopping, international calling, etc. Every time you earn in WowApp, a small part of these earnings is automatically donated to up to 5 charities of your choice. WowApp is not just a messenger. It's a whole ecosystem of products, a platform, a new sharing economy in which the majority of all economic benefit is shared with the community. As I mentioned in the last point, there are many parts and messenger is just one of them. Every day, you receive WowCoins (100 WowCoins are equal to 1 US Dollar) according to your previous day activity and also activity of your network. A daily summary may look like this: It does say how much WowCoins you earned from your own activity and also activity of your network + how much was donated to your supported charities. There are over 2000 charities worldwide so you have a lot of options to choose from. A short explanation of those WowApp features may be useful: Chat & News - you earn simply by using WowApp for chatting, calling, video calling, sharing photos, videos, files, etc. It works on all devices (iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, Tablets). Simply by staying in touch with friends & family, you receive a portion of the price that was paid for advertising displayed on your screen. Facebook does the same - they display ads to you but they keep 100% of the profit for themselves. This is just a fairer approach in my opinion. Instead of being a product on platforms like Facebook, Skype or Twitter, we are treated like partners on WowApp. This is how our trading chat looks like on mobile phone: Computer & Web - you earn when using the application on your PC (Windows or Mac) and also by browsing the WowApp website. Games - you can play hundreds of free games on games.wowapp.com and you will earn when doing so. There are different games for mobile & PC. Smart Slide - it does display a latest WowApp activity (chats, news, etc.) on locked screen of your smartphone, together with an ad. You earn from this. Instant Earn - here you can complete various tasks like watching videos, downloading apps & games, completing surveys, doing some tasks on social media (like giving a like to someone on Facebook), etc. And you receive WowCoins for doing so. Shop Online - my favourite feature. WowApp offers cashback when shopping in any of about 10,000 partner shops worldwide. You simply choose your favourite shop on shop.wowapp.com, click on the shop's link and once you complete your purchase, you will receive a cashback to your WowApp account. I use WowShop quite often for buying flight tickets (Kiwi.com, Etihad, Qatar, etc.), hotels (Booking.com, Hotels.com, Agoda, etc.) and cat food In the United Kingdom, there are currently about 2,000 partner shops, for example: Talk - this is equivalent to the Skype credit. You can use WowApp to call on mobile & landline numbers all over the world. You need to purchase a calling credit first (or you can use your earnings). I use this feature quite often. At the end of each call, you receive a cashback. International calls are very cheap and it's very useful when travelling, below you can see the prices for some popular destinations: Smart Web - is a browser extension for Chrome & Firefox. It notifies you when a shop or website (which you are currently browsing) is available for a cashback in the WowShop. You also earn every time you search the web. I like it, it's quite useful. If you are curious about how to withdraw your earnings from WowApp, there are many options: You can either donate to charity or to cash out for yourself. You can also use your earnings for the Talk feature (WowCredit) to make international calls and that is something what I do quite often. I practically call for free to any country in the world. I have tried all of these withdrawal methods and all of them work well. So yeah, that's why am I supporting WowApp. If you ask me, I think this is going to be viral sooner or later and early adopters who understand the potential & concept (source 1 & source 2) will be very happy in the future. It's completely free to use, yet we still earn a revenue share & do some good in the world. Isn't the concept amazing? And please remember - if you want to join our trading group, wait until I accept your friend request and then send me a message that you're coming from Sports Trading Exposed. Not all people who are joining me on WowApp are coming from here.

    Cross Matching

    Sometimes you can really be matched on a better price but in general, cross matching does make the market more efficient so trading is harder. On a picture you posted, a typical strategy would be to make the market on the second favourite - to place a Lay bet @2.02 and Back Bet @2.20 and wait for them to be matched by someone. However, this could never happen because the cross matching algo would match the person on a better price than is your offer. The little left overs in calculation are a profit for Betfair. So, the real winner in Cross Matching is Betfair I think. For traders like us, it made trading slightly harder.

    What kind of spreadsheet are you using? Is it available somewhere? I really like it!

    Once you avoid those big downs, you will have a nice and steady profit. All of these big downs happened because of breaking your money management rules?

    Greetings from Bristol, UK

    Hi @eightbo, welcome to the community! It's great to have more greyhound traders around, I have just finished my little summary of my April greyhound trading challenge

    April Greyhound Trading Summary

    I owe you this summary. At the beginning of April I started a challenge in which I aimed to trade greyhounds. It turned out that I wasn't able to dedicate as much time as I wanted to this challenge because of some personal stuff. However, I was still able to do a few races here and there and instead of describing every day separately, I decided to just sum up everything in one blog post at the end of the month. So here it is! The profit since my last update on 9th April: The total profit for the whole April: Stats for the whole April: Equity for the whole April: So yes - it was a profitable challenge despite I hoped for being able to trade much more races. In total, I was able to trade on 403 greyhound races in April and the average profit per race was £0.531. I think that isn't too bad but there is definitely a room for improvement. I think I could achieve at least £1 per race on average. And that may be a very nice income if you are living in a not very expensive country like Vietnam, like @Ricardo Do As you can see from the equity, I was able to prevent early suspensions for the rest of the month. My strategy was simple - I ended my trading at least 20 seconds before the off. Unfortunately, I missed some really nice opportunities because of this approach but I preferred safety over risk. @Tommy gave me a useful information that watching a live video is a great help in determining when the race will actually start but I didn't test this out yet. That's all from me for now! I recommend you to join our trading group on WowApp, there is some really nice talk happening every day! Happy trading!

    Masters Tournament

    Date: Apr 11–14, 2019 Course: Augusta National Golf Course Purse: $11,000,000
  10. 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:

    Tommy and his early trading

    Much bigger danger is to let the loss go so high. I bet there was many possibilities to exit earlier...
  12. Another three day summary... I haven't been able to dedicate much time to greyhounds but at least I am finally in profit with a little bit of luck involved April 5th: As you can see, I had only a very little time in the morning and in the evening so there is really not much to talk about. April 7th: This day boosted my overall profit but it wasn't because of my excellent trading skills - it was due to an early suspended market. Exactly 10 seconds before the official start of the race I ended up with quite a big Back bet on a favourite: Luckily the favourite did win the race. But I quite don't understand one thing - why on earth the market is suspended so early? How can we rely on the time? Seems like we have to live with this issue and so I decided to close all of my trading positions at least 15 seconds before the official time. I usually finish my trading little bit earlier though. Unfortunately, I will miss some good opportunities which often arrive early before the official starting time. Except this race, I would still end up with £21.24 profit and that is what I would prefer - more days with a smaller profit rather than days with big ups and downs. April 8th: What gets me into a loss quite often are those bloody big & unexpected spikes up and down. Someone often takes a lot of money (often in thousands) and he moves the price from like 3.00 to 4.00 in just one second. It's quite hard to fight against it sometimes but I think I can now roughly recognise if it will happen or not. Let's see what the future will bring Stats: Current Equity:

    April Greyhound Trading Challenge

    Hi Ricardo, my maximum liability per market is 100 GBP maximum. Great idea with your challenge, I'm looking forward to see more traders doing it!

    Theoretically yes, but practically the bigger the stake you are using, the lower % ROI you should be expecting. There is not an unlimited liquidity.
