Let me start by saying thank you to all the people who post on the blog. Feedback wether good or bad is fine by me, If you have an opinion about what I say I am very happy to hear it, and indeed post it. I am not afraid of being criticised if it’s justified.
When I started my blog I had a vague idea of what I wanted to acheive. I had no idea if anyone would be interested in what I have to say, or be interested in advice. It has shocked me how quickly the blog has grown in the 11 days since it started. I have had nearly 1000 unique visitors, which is staggering. My main focus for the blog was to show people who may not usually use a betting exchange, how it is possible to make a steady amount of money, without any amazing skills. Just some rules and common sense. It was never intended to be a “tipping service”. But that seemed a good place to start to prove my credibility. Sticking up your bets before the event is the ultimate proof of if you are who you say you are. If sure plenty of you have come across clueless guessers who want you to pay them for a load os rubbish. Hey, I can give you a load of rubbish for free!!!!
What I wanted to do was to give out some of the trades I do myself everyday. I spent a lot of time writing a pretty comprehensive guide about exactly how you should approach these trades. I post up the prices you should try to achieve along with the exit points. I am a pro trader. This is what I do. I record the prices I get matched at and the prices I close at. It would be incredibly naive for anyone to expect to replicate exactly what I do, otherwise you wouldn’t need me to show you how it’s done 🙂 I can try to guide you, but I cannot push the buttons for you.
I understand it is difficult to get matched at the time I post the bets at around 10:15. At this time the markets are in their early stages of formation. It’s the time I have always stepped in. But please realise, if there are 5, 10,15 or 20? of you all trying to get your money in at the same time, you are not going to get matched straight away. The LAY today, Tidy Affair was 2 actually 1.99 when I typed out the trade and posted it. This immediately went out to 2.24 as people were chasing it up. At lunchtime it went as low as 1.9. If you had chased the price you would be in serious trouble by then. As it happens I called it right and it went out as high as 2.6 at it’s peak.
I want to make you guys some money, so I need to make some changes to the advice. I have no idea if this will effect the profitability of the bets. But my intention is to not release any bets until after 12:00pm. More likely 12:15 – 12:30. This way the markets will be formed and the chances of getting matched at the advised price may be better. Let’s see how it goes. I know we will miss some of the big early moves, but thats the way it goes. So bear with me. I’m trying my best 🙂
Thanks for your support. It’s very much appreciated.
