My 1st Video upload

well i managed to trade the evening racing at kempton only 8 of them mind, making a profit in all of them, i decided to make a video but found i was too concerned with it and it effected my concentration as it was obvious to which way the market was heading, i think i did 2 and a bit trades using £50 stakes for a profit of £2.50, but it could have been so much more as the odds went from 7.2 to 9.2 in 6 minutes.

Heres the video.

So i a stuck in a hotel in leicester

Only a few miles away is the race course which ran today, i used the Toy and traded on all but 3 races today taking in my best amount for a long £108.68, how have i managed this?, well i increased stakes depending on which horse i was "working" there were a number of odds on favs who's odds were moving up and down and i just placed lays/backs a number of times, my stakes were £100/250 by far the most i have used, but to be honest i was very hyped... perhaps i need to go to hotels more often :)
I also had william hill radio on, they talked up a few horses with about 1/2 minutes to go, 1 was trading at 13's to back and i could see large amounts of cash building up so i backed it with the intention of getting out either for the small loss or profit as it was i laid it for 11's then hedged, cheers william hill radio.
Below is the P/L
no trades tonight as i am off out and head home tommorow.

Traded for around 2 and 1/2 hours taking in £32.98, again i heard on attheraces the fact that from January all evening races will become twilight racing probably starting at 2.30 with the last race at 6.30, i am not happy with this as the 4 evening races are my main times for trading due to work, i am off till Friday but as i write this i am in a hotel in Leicester, will more than likely have a blast on this afternoons races as the wifi seems stable running at 4.8mbs.

Evening races to become twilight racing?

Heard on at the races this evening that there will be changes on scheduled race times for evening races, these will now become twilight racing, i am not happy of that is the case as the bulk of my trading is done on the evenings.

Today was a good day for me, i traded the early races from 11.50 till 13.30 as i was off out to a football match, during this spell my p/l was £32.89, very happy with that i found reading the way i thought the odds would go was a breeze at times having said that i took 2 losses of £2.34 and £2.56.

The evening races at wolves too was very good, i traded on Bee Stinger who's odds were 2.04 to lay which i did for £100, thats the biggest stakes i have used for a long long time, i had offsets set at one so as soon as the lay was taken the back was placed, however the odds on bee stinger drifted all the way up to 3.1 and i was on the ride, backing/laying, taking a tick profit of loss, my total bets were

Bee Stinger * 2.53 3,366.55 Back 5,148.70
Bee Stinger * 2.52 3,378.90 Lay -5,136.34
*Average odds
P/L from this race was £12.36

I had actually worked up to £22.50 odd at one point, but misread the way the odds were going as it was at the end of its drift and close to the off, but more than happy with the eventual return, Bee stinger went on and won the race at betfair starting price of 3.05, i have no idea as to the why the drift but it was easy to spot.

i ended up on a profit for the day of £53.56

Will have a bash tommorow, and a few hours on Monday as i am due to go away for a few days, will be taking the laptop with me, however trading will be a rare even i have favorite Toy installed.

I got away from work early and traded some of the late races and then the wolves meeting, i also did some of the early yank races which brought in a few pennies :) total p/l was £21.81

Heres a shot of the Toy the race is the 14.45 at wolves you can see the backs and lays to the left, i was in tacking a tick, losing a tick, scratching and then greening up.

Tuesdays results

I traded just 13 races this afternoon having got away from work later that i thought i would, managed to get £12.95, i then decided to have a quick play on the Greyhounds ecking out a couple of pounds, to end the day on £15.78, before heading off to football.
Again the Toy proved its worth, this was after i downloaded the newest version with some new bells and whistles, well Weight of Money & Traded volume streaming charts in the ladders, not my cup of tea but one is able to turn them off, infact the toy can be as basic or indeed full of graphs and other stuff as you want.
I'll hopefully put some more pictures of the toy up soon, not sure if i'll get any trading done in tommorows evening races as i am due to work late.
