Favorite My Betfair Methods – Trading On The Exchange

pre-race trading ebook image

New for 2019

Welcome to my Betfair trading blog, this began back in 2012 as an online diary of my football trading selections. Due to feedback from readers it quickly evolved into an explanation of my general approach to the markets, along with educational articles for people interested in taking up exchange trading themselves. In 2013, after a growing number of requests, I began to document my strategies in ebook format, something I only finished doing at the end of 2018 with my final ebook explaining my approach to pre-race trading in the horse racing markets.

If this is your first visit here, please take a minute to read my Welcome page which explains some of my background and some important things all aspiring Betfair traders should consider before diving in. For anyone new to the sports betting exchange, I have a completely free eBook which explains all the basics about trading, how it works, and how to get started as a complete novice.

Trading on Betfair allows you to work from the comfort of your own home with no travel costs and very few setup costs compared to most other types of business. If you’re a sports fan it can also be an extremely enjoyable way to earn a living! Sounds great doesn’t it?! Well it is! But it takes a serious amount of dedication, practice, and self-discipline. If you’re looking for a ‘hobby’, please look elsewhere! If you’re looking for a whole new career, be prepared to put in the hours. You’ll need to!

If you’re up for the challenge then go for it. I’m confident the information on my site will genuinely help you achieve success in your new career. I would wish you luck, but if you’re trading properly then you won’t be needing any of that! Leave the luck for the gamblers, they really do need it! 🙂

Annual Update & Yes, it’s done!

Hi all, (assuming you’re still here!) I am so sorry for all the delays, even though I know my apologies and excuses must sound pretty hollow by now! I knew it was bad, but I didn’t realise how bad. I happened to look back through my emails and even some of the comments on the site pages, and there were conversations almost 2 years ago where I said it “wouldn’t be long” until I’d release a detailed ebook covering pre-race trading. The response to my free article on the subject greatly increased the number of requests and therefore the pressure on me to hurry it up, but I still can’t …

Happy New Year!

I thought now was as good a time as any to say it! I have just this minute finished the final polishing of the pre-race trading ebook. I have sent it to a couple of people who are proof reading the final (final final final) version for me before I publish it. In the mean time I will sort out a few other issues (sleep being the first one!) like security on the file, working out how to deliver it (it’s a large file) etc. Anyway, just wanted to say HNY to all the regulars and I hope that VERY soon those of you who want to trade the racing …

So close!

I badly wanted to have the pre race trading ebook out in time for Xmas but it’s not going to be possible. It is complete except for a few minor edits/typo corrections. However I am changing payment processor and due to the time of year it hasnt been too easy to set it up, slow response from customer service people etc. I am on it flat out though so I am hoping it’s just a matter of days now until the ebook is ready to publish. However a couple of people will be proof reading it first. It’s not far away now but I can’t say exactly when, a week …

Brief update

This is just a very quick update while I have internet access. I am away visiting a very sick relative but I did manage to complete the writing of the ebook (working almost until getting in the car!) before leaving. I am back home in a few days at which point I will need to do a quick proof read to check for typos etc, as well as get a couple of people to give it an impartial proof read for me (as I may miss many mistakes with my now square eyes) then I can make it available. The book is pushing 500 pages so this won’t be done …

Racing UK Offer TODAY only

Hi all, you’re probably expecting an update on the ebook but that’s not what this post is for, although I am STILL writing I am sorry to say! This is just a very quick post after a friend of mine mentioned RUK’s ‘Bandwagon Offer’ announced today. Sorry, I call it that, they call it a “Black Friday” offer, you know, the day after Thanksgiving, that day we don’t celebrate in the UK and never effing have…… oh what’s the point, nobody cares what I think anyway… 😀 The point is – IF you trade horse racing or are planning on doing so soon, this is one hell of an offer. …

Pre-Off trading ebook update…

Just a quickie post as I have had quite a few requests for an update in the past few days. The ebook doubled again (in size), so I am flat out burning the midnight oil. I am literally doing nothing else except sleeping and eating. It’s not far off now, but I do have some issues with payment processor to deal with once it’s complete so although I expect it to be completely written in around a week it doesn’t look like it will be actually available to buy for maybe another week after that, possibly two but hope not. (I refuse to allow people to steal this as has …

A quick word about “Value” bets (or trades)

I have had a few comments recently regarding the concept of “Value” when trading on Betfair. I answered those queries but after responding to another one today I thought I would put up a quick post using my reply in case other readers are wondering about it too. Maybe it’s just a coincidence or maybe there is a forum thread buzzing somewhere on this topic lately, either way…..   “Just wondering about this whole “value” concept that I have read about so much over the last year or so and how this relates to the methods used to pick LTD selections. How do we know we are getting value with …
