Tommy and his early trading

Recommended Posts

DAY 32

Markets traded: 1 horse race
Profit: -£39,95
Bank: £1,28

Commentary: Tired to trade horse race in-play ( lay to back ) when all in sudden gap went from odds 15 to 1.15. My bank is crushed and I think I need a serious break from trading until I also fix my personal life difficulties what I currently carry on my back. If in meantime will come here and trade you will see the results as usual.

Oh man, stick to your rules, that's the only thing I could say :) don't touch in-play and if you do so, don't risk your full bank...

I know 😕 That was great example what even £3 stake can do on lay side with higher odds. I will move on pretty soon. My personal life is almost sorted out so when I completely shake off how i got robbed twice this month by folks on internet 🕵️‍♀️ then I will come back and follow my trading rules strictly. Until then I wish you all folks have huge greens 🤠

That's why I like to use Liability staking. It does keep an eye on my liability automatically.

yes, the most difficult thing in trading is discipline and control emotion , it makes difference from winner and loser

Deposited £19 into my betfair account. Current balance: £20,28

DAY 33

Markets traded: 24
Profit: +£0,68
Bank: £20,96

Commentary: I decided to get in touch with markets today. It was going very well, first few markets ended with profits and then boom one very big loss. I tapped on hedge button when it was at -0,60 but instead some big window popped up what I have no idea what that was,some info/help section probably, so when I finally got rid of that window I took much much bigger loss. What can I do..I moved on and traded much more markets than I intended to trade to get back that unnecessary loss. Should I say something like "markets involved" or "analysed" instead of "markets traded"? Because I am not matched on some usually so it may confuse some of you when I show you my profit and loss from betfair where you see different markets number.

Commentary: I had very good start so when I saw that I have already £1 profit, I aimed to get another £1 and then walk away with smile on my face.

DAY 35

Markets traded: 10
Profit: -£13,31
Bank: £9,81

Commentary: Market suspended. Now with this low balance I am totally handicapped and "unable" to trade. I also cannot deposit again because I have no money left because of christmas. Now I have to wait for my wage to arrive into my account so I can support my trading hobby. Expected come back is in about 3 weeks from now. See you later guys.

Could you not do a little matched betting to build a bit of a bank and to use for trading practice? ( It doesn't hurt so much when it's money won from bookies) So many offers for join ups and reloads but don't suggest paying any subscriptions out for odds comparison websites, waste of money imo but you could join one for a trial period and follow the sign up guides. 

In the meantime, how about using practise mode? They say Betfair doesn't like people just using practice mode but I have also real bets in nearly every day and nothing said to me.

Just to give you a laugh, I thought I was practising one day when I first got software  and found after 3 races that I was in live. Worst thing was I wasn't even practising, just pressing in bets here and there and seeing what happened with what as I didn't know the software!  Suddenly realised to my horror that I had 2 live lay bets on a 10 odds horse in a market with little liquidity. Then enter other half in study, wanting attention. Try and explain that to someone who knows nothing about it you cannot just leave trading and go do something else with race about to start. Anyhow, traded off the 2 lay bets for same price and it was with some trepidation that I went to Betfair to see  what damage I had inflicted on my account. 3 pages of transactions faced me, I did not remember my exact balance pre my " practice" session but a quick look at that then my end balance revealed my loss. -10p. 

A bullet dodged but I have missed a couple since by clicking my mouse to wake up my screen and fired in bets in high odds horses. Now I remove those horses when I load up a market and have a label on my screen saying : check in practise mode. And sometimes I sit waiting for my bets to match wanting to lay or back for real then wonder why they are not showing up in Betfair! Reverse problem, in wrong mode again!

Hope to see you back asap!

I am unable to do matched betting. I can explain why to you over PM.

Your story made me laugh when I saw that you did not lose much and experienced that shock when looking at "live" status, that was pretty good luck 😊

Maybe I will just come here and do little turnover and then practice on horses for a change what I always planned to do and never kicked my self hard enough to do so. I believe a bit on things happening for some reason and this is forcing me to go into practice mode and left little space for that safe turnover. Yeah, I just convinced myself into that while typing this. I will not post any stats for those virtual bets or those small turnovers in meantime but if you want to know how am I doing then feel free to message me on wowapp where I usually go every day.

Thank you Valencia and all of you guys watching my progress 👍

It is great to see your success Ricardo Do even during these hard times. I secretly still trade few races every now and then just to keep my head not too far away from markets so I do not forget the grip and I do make little profit by doing that which is undocumented even inside my personal notepad for trading so I do not post anything in here yet. I keep that for time when I really get into trading again with few $€£ in my betfair balance 🙂 I am also playing with horses a bit via training mode. It is not bad but it really does not feel that real and my focus is lower because I know that nothing is going to happen.

Keep going guys because I still am and always will be 🙌
