As I started work on my presentation that I will give to my attendees of my Training and Mentorship program, it dawned on my that some of the things i do i take for granted. I wondered how many others do the same.

One of the absolute key things that I do is keep records.

Not to the point of every trade, but every race or match. They are then reviewed and lessons learned. It’s a form of Kaizen (continuous improvement). I spent some time knocking up a simple spreadsheet (My thanks to Jon – Jonathan474 from the Bet Angel forum for his help).

This will record each day and each sport and build it into a record of all your trading. I’m pretty sure all Pro’s do this. If you are to succeed you need to start treating your trading just like a business. This is a good way to start.

If you email me I can send you the sheet. mugs game@hotmail.co.uk

It was created in Excel 2013 and is Macro Enabled – The Macros are just a couple of buttons that help you navigate from one tab to the other.

It’s pretty straighforward. This is a short video of how it works. Any questions mugsgame@hotmail.co.uk

Thank You

Andrew BanthorpeHiya

Thanks for your reply to my email and I shall be looking forward too seeing you in September all being well. I hope to use the time until then trying to learn as much as I can and have found the videos and explanations amazing. Despite many years of not very successful trading it does feel like a light as been switched on although maybe just flickering at the moment. I have been trying to download the results spread sheet but the dropdown box just says its empty so if not being too cheeky could you email me a copy. many Thanks Andrew

MGPost authorHi Andrew, The file contains a simple Macro that lets you switch from page to page. Dropbox has taken exception to this. There for I will have to email out the file. Cheers Steve

Jason HeathWould it possible to have access to this spreadsheet,, love the videos and advice.

MGPost authorHi Jason – Sorry for delay in reply. I have emailed it to you. Thanks for you kind words. MG

DavidHi mate. Have you still got one you could send out please I did download it before but I’ve made a balls up. Thanks.

VincentNever really thought of keeping track of my trading in a spreadsheet, but seems a no brainer now i can see how useful that could be. Probably because i never managed to master excel! Are you still giving out copies to people that want to try?

And also, please keep up the great work on the blog. I have learnt so much in just a few short months, nothing of which i would have understood without your help!

Thankyou.

MGPost authorThanks Vincent – Your comment is appreciated. I have emailed you the sheet. Cheers Steve

MickHey Mugs,

Love your blog and appreciate the regular updates. To date most of my trades have been in-play football but i’m starting to develop more of an interest in racing thanks to your articles and youtube clips. Would be greatful if you could send on the spreadsheet. Not something I’ve done before and seems a great idea.

Keep up the good work mate.

MGPost authorHi Mick – I have emailed you the sheet – thanks very much for your comment

Alan CantyHello Steve,

Excellent Blogs. I particulary like the way you detail in writing, your reasoning behind your trades, after the videos. Can you please forward me a copy of the excel spreadsheet.

Many Thanks

Alan

ChrisHi Steve,

Great videos and blog. I keep coming back and viewing again as there is so much useful content. I hope one day to be as accomplished in my trading as you are. I am struggling with psychological issues at the moment such as accepting losses which everyone seems to have to get through. I know you mastered that a long time ago. Your spreadsheet would be a welcome addition if it is still available.

Kind regards

Chris

MGPost authorSheet on the way Chris – cheers

allan mcleanI have only discovered your youtube channel!! great stuff, keep it up, helping me no end. A lot of people whom post on youtube etc you never see trade an average bog standard race with little movements, because they are competitive those are the hardest to read and thus to trade, so appreciate all you have posted as you show the reality of what you people actually face when they start…. If you could hook me up with the spread sheet would be most grateful and once again a massive help!!! I am on video 172 out of 191, not long before I am up to date with your blog!! all the best!

MGPost authorHi Allan – The fact that you have sat and watched 172 videos means you must be very committed! (and sad) I have emailed you the sheet mate – cheers Steve

DaveHi there, what a great site, I am working my way through the information contained here.

May I also request a copy of the profit and loss document.

Please keep up the fantastic service you provide.

MGPost authorThanks Dave – sent you the sheet

AndyHi there, I have been following your blog and am really enjoying your straight talking way of explaining things. I have to admit that I have been deceiving myself with my selective record keeping. If you could forward me a copy of the excellent spreadsheet then I am sure it would help me with my self discipline and improve my trading. Thanks in advance and as always I will look forward to your next video post.

MGPost authorThanks for your kind words Andy. The sheet has been emailed to you.

Cheers

Steve

joeCould you send me a copy of the spreadsheet,

MGPost authorI have emailed it to you Joe – thanks for your comment. Steve

joeHi Steve,

I received the spreadsheet many thanks. But the ” To see overview click here” and ” Back to Daily Totals” buttons don’t work, how do I fix it ?

Just to let you know I haven’t read the Excel for Dummies book just yet, I’m still on the Ladybird Version : – )

thanks joe

GermanCould you send me a copy of the spreadsheet,

ChrisHello,

I was wondering ….

Could I have a copy of the Record Keeping spreadsheet please?

Kind regards,

Chris

MGPost authorIts been sent to you Chris – Cheers

ChrisThank you.

It’s just what I have been looking for.

RichHi Steve

Another great offering – but i can’t seem to locate the download link for your Excel Record-Keeping layout.

I’d very much like to use it myself, any chance you could email the link (or the Spread sheet)

– thanks

Rich

RichHi Steve

Another quick (non related) question —- which do you rate , Bet Angel, AGT or GRUSS? – any advice would be gratefully received. I think they all work on Betfair & Betdaq, all support excel integration and automation, so what d’you recon?

cheers

Rich
