After an incredibly strange year where we heard phrases like 'lockdown', 'new normal' and 'unprecedented times' far too often.
Yesterday was a day for celebration!
I was going to write a post on a completely different subject this week, but we have to take time to address this great news.
One thing that upsets me is when somebody loses money on a betting or trading strategy.
It's never nice to hear that someone has lost money, especially in an industry where we know it is possible to make great long terms gains on your financial investments by trading.
One of the questions I get asked all of the time is ‘Should I join a paid tipping service?’
One of the great privileges I have as someone who looks after a community of Betfair traders is that I get to see sports trading from all angles.
People of all ages (above 18!), shapes and sizes. From trading careers that are just starting out to professional traders that have mastered the Betfair exchange.
Following from last week's blog post about Betfair exchange trading using a 'gut feeling'. I was asked a great question on our Betfair Trading Community Youtube channel.
If you have been around Betfair trading on the Betfair exchange or even if you have just been a punter at a bookies, you will probably have heard someone talk about how their 'gut feeling' was the reason behind a trade or bet.
For those who are not aware, the definition of a 'gut feeling' is a feeling that someone has that seems to predict what will happen, not based on any actual logic.
One of the questions that I get asked as Professional Betfair Trader all the time is - What does the term 'points' mean when referring to people's trading results?
Betfair Exchange Traders will often say things like 'I made two points profit today' or 'I'm staking three points on this'.
One of the most important aspects of Betfair Football Trading is being able to analyse your strategies and work out if they are any good.
On that note we have decided today to do a deep dive analysis of our 'late second half goals filter' which has been performing well since it's inception.
