    Today was again with ups and down. I started very bad on dogs, lost 30 euro on a race because I didn't close in time and market suspended. I recovered that loss but I risked with laying high odds. Rest of the day was good on dogs. On horses I lost 28 euro in one of the last races of the day so no profit on horses today. I risked a little on dogs again to recover that 28 euro loss. Today even if I made a good profit I risked too much....

    In the next 3 weeks I need to withdraw 300 euro so the bank will not grow that much

    Today has been really crazy, I think I need a break. I made so many mistaked. I had 5 big losses today and a total of 165 euro loss. It's very hard to make profit in this situation.


    Greyhounds - -25 & - 52 euro = -77 euro - 2 big losses because I didn't closed 2 small losses pre-race, went in play and lost. I had liability on the dogs that won the race. After that I went gambling mode to recover as much as I can from that losses... I can't continue like this if I want to finish the challenge.

    Horses In Running - - 30.60 & - 28.59 & -32.36 = -91 euro - this 3 losses cancelled all my profit on horses today.... this is the risk in play if you don't have patience. I hope next days will be better.

    I need to analyze my trades and be better next days.

    Everyone has his style of trading, some time it's frustrating when the price doesn't go your way, i think I made grey hair because of this. I don't win so much per race so my "secret" is to trade as many races as I can. Volume it's the name of the game for me

    I don't trade more than 3 dogs at the same time, it's hard to focus, stakes are between 2-10 euro, I click more times if I see a good trade, I feel more comfortable with low stakes, big stakes on dogs are not that good because there is not so much liquidity. I usually trade dogs above 5 odds, but I trade the favorite also If I see a good opportunity.

    In general it's better to make your own prices and wait to get matched. You need to react fast and be careful at time, have radio or live streaming open, you can fallow racing post site also.

    Also there are here some very good greyhound threads + videos that helped me - Acg thread, Bmj thread. Riconaut videos on youtube.

    Good luck!
    Thanks for the reply.

    You've certainly given me some more motivation to give dogs another go. I think ive already watched most of those videos from the guys you mentioned. Might give them another watch now though!

    Good luck for the rest of the challenge.

    What a day! I lost 216 e on horses! All the horses I layed, won the race! No more horse racing in play for me until I learn more about the markets! After that, clearly affected by that, I let o dog race in play and the dog that I layed won the race. Another 67 euro loss. NIGHTMARE!

    I need some time to recover from this day! I don't know how I will continue this challenge. I will have to decide

    Bog, don't worry about the bad losses this week. I've had very similar runs. You just have to take them as lessons as to what is working for you and what is not. Its something I've had to do multiple times but with each major setback I've come back better. I learnt to correct many mistakes that I now don't repeat and cut things out that I had to admit to myself were not working. I think it does help to take a day or two off and go over tactics and come back with better eyes.

    Don't think about them reds too much. Let them go but you must learn from them, I take them as expensive lessons.

    MaoCat, thx for you message. All you said it's true, I know I made some bad mistakes and it's important to learn from them.

    I decided in the next days, until I get my confidence back, I will focus more on withdrawals. And no more horse racing.

    2. -27.47 and - 28.28 on live horse racing. on both losses I was laying. first loss was after I lost on the grehound race and still was angry, and last one was on the last race of the day

    3 races cost me 77.25 euro
    and I had a such good the on horses today...but market gives, market takes....

    As Icredd said, it's impossible not to make mistakes, but I think this mistakes could have been avoided if I would have been more careful on that dog race and on horses should have been more patient. But at least I ended the day in profit and I hope I will learn from my mistakes...maybe I traded to much today...and mistakes like this can happen.

    Tommorow its a new day and a fresh start
    reason i been trading dogs less these days, getting caught in play and lose big chunks of hard earned money

    Yes, getting caught is very annoying. You are trading horses more now? For me was a disaster trading in play
