A blogging return

Seems only yesterday that i last posted on here, suffice to say its been a bit longer than that so here i am back, those that know me from the Geeks excellent (community) forum will know that my trading is now almost purely from an in-running prospective around 90/95% of the time you will also know that i put up some of my selections, sometimes these win at beefy odds, but i also put them up with a view to exiting before it wins of or indeed loses, be it at 6 or more ticks.
Also a newer angle i am looking at is selecting more than 1 runner sometimes 3 depending on odds (a dutch if you will) again with a view to exiting before the end of the race, i have added some video's to show the new addition to the Geeks Toy, the in-running interface which is suits this style of playing on BF.
Best watched in large format

Hoping to post most of my picks up on here maybe the night before with thoughts, saves me having to keep them on notepad and dozens of files on my laptop.

Happy xmas whats left of it

Children in need weekend

Here in the UK we have chldren in need weekend whereby people of all walks of life do all manner of things and donate and raise cash for the Children in need TV Show the money raised is passed to world wide charites to help those less fortunate than ourselves, i will be trading tommorow and all profits will be passed onto the geeks "children in need" Charity Plugathon via the donation button on the geeks forum.

Also the geek himself will be raising/giving monies for the said Charity just for plugging the Number 1 trading platform the GeeksToy, he is also putting up prize money in various competitions on the Forum, Inc £250 cash and a full betfair subscription to the API worth £2000 alone !!

The geeks toy, my own personal favorite trading platform will remain "FREE" for the whole of 2011 unbelievible !!! it now has full advanced charting and market overviews and best of all it is fully customible to suit you and the cost again is £0 for all of 2011.

I will put up some of my selections tommorow,

Winter is almost here

And racing is now getting "harder" well in my opinion in that my trading opportunities are somewhat limited to just the evening races held on wed, thurs and Friday and this is just 1 meeting of say 7 to 6 races.
I will also do the odd saturday and sunday "football" permitting.

I now an almost 100% in-running trader, i read form and look for selections that i think will run well, i use fracsoft, racing post and a few other sites, i actually enjoy in-running despite its risks over pre race trading, if you are contemplating going in running always have a plan of an entry and an exit, i always back 1st usually in the last seconds before the off, with an exit based on my research on the selection.
I use the Toy and no other application as it provides me with speed and of course the hedge function, it does have graphs but i find then of no use to me as an in-runner, likewise there is no stop loss, i have one already its called my mouse and as a trader you must be willing to use it. :) to get out of a sticky situation

I will hopefully now that i have more time put up some of my selections and why i have actually picked those runners, i occasionally back a horse when i leave for for work and leave my lay in place with keep bets in place, currently i am looking at using a mobile for betfair mobile, i currently have a HTC phone but find that betfair takes and age to load up, as there is no app for it.

More later.

Today in-running

As i have posted previously i have been rating horses today was all about in-running using these, so how did i fare? very very well, the list below is the selections all were backed just before the off and laid in-running using the geeks toy and ensuring profit by hedging, there were a couple of winners at decent prices, the best one was the last Kings Raven i backed at odds of 42 and posted on the Geeks forum/live chat that i had... it then went to 48's before the off, then it went away i got out at 32 with a green book, it actually came second and went all the way down to 1.60 !!! some of the notables were Pokanket backed at 10 and out at 7's it won, as well as Miss safron and Phantom Lad again i posted that i had backed the latter at 6.2 and out at 5.7, perhaps i need to hold my nerve... and go for a bigger profit :) stakes today were £10, and £3 for the last race all backed 1st.

Fontwell 2.00 Good Faloue
Market Rasen 2.10 Pokanoket
Fontwell 2.30 Martys Mission Non-runner
Market Rasen 2.40 Ahmedy
Fontwell 3.00 Miss Safron
Fontwell 3.30 One Corneto

been a while

well sorry for the delay in updating the blog, i have had 2 x days off work and traded both days, yesterday was a mixture of profits and losses ending up on £38.45p in profit, today was better topping £70 again a mixture only this time pre-race and 2x in-running, i have decided to go this way due to my mind set as trading is mind numbling boring at times, for the last few months i have read form from various sites collated dated to a spreadsheet in order to compile ratings, i am looking at Jockey, speed, running form etc, i look to back just before the off and place a lay at least 10/15% below to ensure a profit, i also have my mouse hovering around the original back price or sligt above so i can get out with minimal loss or £0.
Agin i am using the toy because speed is of the essence and the toy has it all, the geeks forum is good too, so much so i spend a lot of timeon there as it also has live chat and many helpful people on-line.

Markets traded since last update Tennis, horses, greyhounds and football not sure about greyhounds as the markets only form in the 2 minutes before the off and its frantic at times, Tennis is great though next tournament has already started but its the early rounds so not much money around hopefully it will pick up soon.

Re: my ratings i may post some up for Thursday, as i am hoping to take the day off.

till next time

Weeks results

This week saw me manage to pull in £236.27, i only traded 3 races yesterday :( as i went to a football match. The cash was "earned" in the following markets Cricket £2.04, Soccer £18.36, Tennis £115.98 and Horse racing £99.89, i took a few losses on the horse though out the week but more than made up for them today with a days total of £68.19 i am more than happy with this weeks totals and again with my disipline where i have accepted losses hedged and moved on.
Again i am very happy with the Tennis trading :)
