Prematch Football Trading
One of the most popular forms of Betfair sports trading is prematch trading. By that we mean a trade which take place before the match begins, a trade that is entered and closed before kick off.
Why is this so popular?
It is perceived to be a 'safe' trade due to the fact that no risk is taken in play, a goal cannot come before kick-off so wild odds movements are unlikely. Therefore, people can trade with more money knowing that not much of the actual stake is really at risk if hedged out prematch.

So here we are the final part of our advice into cash series! I want to talk about an area of trading that is rarely commented on but I feel is a huge part of mentality training and that is our confidence levels.
Confidence in relation to trading is simply a scale of belief in what we are doing and the faith we have that it will or will not have the desired results that we want.
