    A kind of Intro and thank you to Thomas

    Thank you for the response to my blog. Yes, of course you are right in terms of the ideas and pointers provided by Thomas while the main ability is the skill of recognition (pattern recognition) to see where and then when to be operating in a market. The immediate usefulness for me is the realisation of the necessity to be in and out quickly, (bet/scratch/bet/scratch again and again). I find myself having a series of small losses but these will be offset against a far more substantial win. This will do for me while I improve my "sense" of timing. Mind you, at 70 years young and while being very fit for that age, my reactions are not what I would desire. That can be practised! Good luck, my friend!

    A kind of Intro and thank you to Thomas

    Hello DreamFollowers, I took an interest in Exchange Trading about a year ago. Was not into the straight gambling side of the business due to growing up seeing what it could do to a parent, my father. An intelligent man who was, nevertheless, in the grip of the gambling addiction. Lived his life believing that he could beat the system and died knowing that he could not. My efforts so far have been less than creditable. I have been losing a little consistently. Nothing at all serious. My days of playing online Texas Holdem taught me to play well within my means. Tomas' idea of figuring what you can afford to lose and then dividing by 3 as a starting bank is first class! My main strategy, for what it is/was worth, was to select races based on tip numbers supplied by Napchecker. I would then work in the range of 3 min out to the Start and look at the tipped horses for movement. The hope was that the so called "mug punters" would start to back these horses in and I could take advantage of that. Naive, Eh! The amount of times that I would see a position go against me while I watched like a RABBIT IN THE HEADLIGHTS does not bear thinking about. There were other "strategies" as well. Today, for the first time, I have been trying Tomas' fast in and out scalping technique to good effect. It is apparent to me that I have much more control now and the fast action can get me in when a definite relatively sustained move one way or the other happens. Obvious? Yeah, when it is pointed out to me! LOL I am now living with the hope that the bizarre mental phenomenon of almost believing that the software was rigged, or I was haunted, or living in a simulation because of the improbability of (a) Position opened (b) Market going against immediately...so frequently.....might now be a thing of the past. BTW...simulation idea not that bizarre (see philosopher Nick Bostrom's Simulation Argument). Thanks Tomas for re-igniting hope in an old duffer's heart.
  3. Hello, I've just come across sportstradingexposed and Thomas as of yesterday 14th Dec 19. I am, through bitter experience of online hawkers and shysters, extremely cynical of anything purporting to be helpful in the business of trading. Consequently, I spent several hours looking for the "catch" in STE...when would the For Sale sign pop up. Could'nt find it!! Looked, in growing puzzlerment, at the Psychology section. In Perspective I came across Thomas' view of mind. Startled, hugely moved !! Thomas, I deeply and sincerely hope that you are what you say you are because if that is the case then I will have encountered something that is, unfortunately, rare in this life...a genuinely altruistic human BEING. The rest will then be up to me. Pete Hurley
