A week’s football online trading profit of £8.80
Total Pre Match Trading profits to date is £126.13. My betting bank now stands at £226.13, I started off the experiment with a football betting bank of £100.00 and use around 75% of my available bank on my trades, which are all done pre match using Betfair.
A very quiet week’s football trading this week, with only three pre match trades. As I pointed out in last week’s post, unless I can focus properly I’m not going to get involved, and as a result, I only had time to get involved in three matches.
I’m well behind my target amount of 33% profit a month (of betting bank) at the moment, but I won’t complain as I never intended to rush this process, and my discipline seems to be holding up well.
It is a seventeenth week of successive profits though, which now proves beyond any (small remaining) doubt to me that this process works. On only two or three weeks have I come close to recording a loss, and on all those weeks I wasn’t properly focused and I still ended up in profit – albeit very small.
I also did an assured soccer profits trade again this week, on the Leeds V Chelsea cup match. These are handy to do when I haven’t got time to do any pre match trades (such as with the midweek games).
Luckily for me I traded out when Leeds went 1-0 up, as it would have got nasty in the 2nd half had I not. I ended up making a profit of £4.75 (not included in pre match trading statistics).
