  • Thank you for your EBook, best investment I ever made. This is the best success I have ever had, and I’ve tried Forex & Pennystocks. This is the best success I’ve ever had, and I’m picking them myself. It gives me great satisfaction. I’m only trading with £4.00 for each trade which means I’m not under pressure. I’m beginning to think this could give me what I’m looking for, which is to occupy my time when I retire and supplement my pension.

About Me

Over the past 20+ years I've learned to trade a whole variety of markets, from stocks and commodities to Forex and more.

I got interested in trading sports markets around 15 years ago. My main focus is on 'technical' or 'cold trading', i.e. decisions based on data in the form of price charts. Why? Because data doesn't lie!

I use raw data as much as I can in my Betfair trading, particularly in football and horse racing, although this isn't always enough as predicting sports betting movements will always require a bit of both 'technical' and 'fundamental' reasoning, regardless of the strategy.

For a more detailed background, read my About Me page.
