A week’s online football trading profit of £9.61
Total Pre Match Trading profits to date is £270.43. My football betting bank now stands at £370.43, I started off the experiment with a betting bank of £100.00 and use around 75% of my available bank on my trades, which are all done pre kick off using Betfair.
It was a slightly busier period this week with six matches traded, compared to the to matches traded last week.
I traded all the matches using my two ticks method, where I place my lay bet two ticks below trading price – and my back bet, two ticks above trading price.
This method of trading seems to be working well at the moment. Although I haven’t been hit by a price going downhill like a runaway train lately, which is always helpful.
I suppose without properly analysing a block of results it will be hard to know whether a good run of wins is down to an improvement in strategy, or down to no one off large losses (which I had a spate of, a few weeks back).
I expect a quiet week next week as I will probably be trading cricket, with the ICC Champions Trophy currently in progress, and some golf, with the US Open starting on Thursday.
The Confederations Cup also starts on Saturday, so that could hopefully lead to some good trading opportunities from the weekend and onwards.
