1 weeks results

i have managed to do a whole weeks trading, now that the evening racing has commenced on weds/thurs/firdays also i have found new markets with the best for the week being Tennis which account for almost 50% of the profit achived.

Profit for the week was £250.72 and was made from the following markets
Greyhounds £9.97, Football £22.85, Tennis £111.35, Horse racing £106.55

Geyhounds was achieved over 6 days and to behonest was not easy, likewise the football, i made £13 of that today in a spainish match i had just laid the draw when the suspension came it was for ath madrid who had just scored against 10 men valencia, who monets later were reduced to 9 men, i let the odds shoot then traded out

I am still using the Toy, link to the right and spend most of my Internet time on the geeks forum, probably the reason for being away from the blog world :) the forum is helpful as all members are there to help each other, be they new people into trading or indeed experienced traders it really is a great place to be.

Stay lucky and green and i'll hopefullly have another week of trading to report

Well today i had a good afternoons trading.
Took in around £55 odds profit with the best one being in the image above, i managed to make this amount by trading on more than 1 selection, this is my style i constantly look for openings to get in and out as quickly as possible.

Funny watching the racing and the geeks toy whilst in running the 4.00 at southwell had Calculus Affair matched at 1.02 for £11000 and 1.01 for £10000 but got beaten in the final few feet by a 50/1 shot... thats a lot of cash to lose to try and win so little in comparison, unless of course you laid it.

I am off work tommorow so will again be trading hopefully taking in more profit, dont forget, use the Toy the traders choice and free for the time being link to the right, also geeks forum is a helpfull one with advice etc.



Traded on the Murray/Fed final sunday morning, got in when fed was winning 2 nil i think only traded the last set. basically backing then laying on fed depending on how the serve was going, made a profit of £20 odd, then tonight i found there was a tennis match on some tour (i know nothing about tennis) i have posted up a screenshot again i am using the Geeks Toy, which is now my main trading platform, well only one, i again made a profit of £11.00 which took about 12 minutes, i will be using tennis a lot more in the future.

Horse racing has been very hit and miss for me, when i have been able to trade betfairs API has played up, got caught sunday, had laid a selection then was matched at the of at sp, but i was showing a potential loss of £72, i had to use betfairs grid to place a back bet in to reduce this loss, which i got down to £9 odd, luckily for me as the horse went on and won, i knocked it on the head and did something else, washed clothes/cooked etc.. :)

The API appears to have been stable today according to betfair forum/service announcements lets hope it continues as i am off work tommorow afternoon and possibly wednseday
