    Nothing it's worse than being caught in play on dogs on the lay side and dog wins the race. Ugly loss. I don't know if you use betfair live streaming but you should know the streaming for SIS races is 20 seconds behind. I got caught few times until I noticed that.

    WH offers free streams for greyhound races, it's faster. In some races you should be careful they offer the stream right before the off. for uk horses it's only audio stream.

    http://www.bettingshop.tv/nologin/ - this is the link. I use Hola browser and changed the country to UK or Ireland, Sweeden also, because it's not working for all the countries.

    Hi! Just wanted to post a little update on how the month of April is going so far.
    So far trading has been going pretty good, i'm working quite a lot and am seeing some improvements and i think that i have made some progress in trading skills and the mental game! Mostly i'm trading the greyhounds, but also working on horse trading with small stakes, i might be giving away some profit that i could be making in the greyhound while trying to trade horse racing, but the only way i can get better in the horse racing is to trade them, and in the long run it will pay off! Will post an update from time to time!

    This month i traded 7 days and one day was a losing day!

    Greyhound Racing: €142.04 | Horse Racing: €10.21 Total P&L: €152.25

    Greyhound racing:

    Markets traded: 520

    Horse racing:

    Markets traded: 85

    Week 2 Update

    Hey! Just a little update on week 2 of april!
    The results don't show it, but i feel like i am getting better and more cnsistent! Had a couple of loosing days, but i think that those losses came because i traded on days when i felt very tired and sleepy... Made a big loss on sunday, lost 54 eur in one horse race, don't know why i sometimes do some stupid things out of boredom! I really feel that i am very close to crack the UK horse racing, just have to avoid a couple of big losses that i have, If i would take the loss a bit quicker, i would have a nice profit! the way i am trading now i have to make like 40 eur to be up 10! Overall looking at my stats i am going up, slow progress is also progress!

    Greyhound Racing: €55.81 | Horse Racing: €28.00 Total P&L: €83.81

    Greyhound racing: 321 markets
    Horse racing: 187 markets

    Month profit: €236.06

    Hey all! Haven't posted here for a while.
    Greyhound trading has been going very well for the last 3 months, and i think it'sgetting better!
    Still struggling with the horses, but I rarely trade them,i decided toconcentrate on one thing at a time.
    This is My p&l for the last two weeks:

    My goal for the dogs from the begining was to get to a point where I can average around 1 eur per race. Hope the markets remain good and i can continue like this! .. Will probably update at the end of August!..Cheers!

    Impressive results! Can i have some question about it?
    Do you trade every race?
    Are them often suspended before the offtime?
    Do you use any website like racingpost to research which one to trade?

    I open every market when i trade, but i only try to trade if i have some idea of what might happen!
    Sometimes they are suspended before the off time, but i wouldn't say that very often. I have been lucky a few times recently that i hedge my position and right after it gets supended.Last month i also got caught in-play, on the lay side and lost 124 eur, that was quite painfull!
    I have tried to look at odds on racing post in the past, but it never works out for me, because i have those odds in my head and that affects how i trade, so i just look at the order flow, what is being backed, what is driffting!

    Well this was a bad week! Had a bad day on tuesday! Went from beeing up +70 eur to -40 eur for the day! Then on sunday had a big loss! I was already about to end my session because i had reached what i wanted for the week, but just had to stick around to try and get that extra 5 eur, and ofcourse didn't take the loss! The bet went in play! and i lost 167 eur! which is half my bank! Before that i was up 40 eur for the day and 250 eur for the week!.. I didn'teven whant to mess with the horses but the dogs market were tough entire week so i gave it a shot.. overall horse trading didn't go too bad but still too swingy for me! Seems like i have one big loss a month... The pluss side is that i ended the week +80 eur and the month is still around +700, probably will not reach what i wanted for the month, since my bank now is half the size! But i think i can reach around 1000 which would be good enough!

    Sometime we make stupid mistakes. I had a bad Sunday also and lost the entire bank. From +160 e I went to -410 e for the day .... Gambling day - First loss was on horses live, I layed a horse, the odds went to 900(!) and won the race, after that I layed a dog that had 50 odds to win the race, and the dog won. After that I lost 320 e on a baseball game.... chasing losses it's my biggest mistake!

    I'm doing better on horses now but always make some stupid mistake and enter gambling mode. Dogs I don't have time to trade like in the past but I still trade them. I'm starting fresh again this week, I deposited 85 e and try to built the bank.

    Good luck and stay positive!

    Wow,those are some nasty losses!... It's strange, how hard it is to just turn off the computer and go do something better than losing money!
    Always the two voices in the head, one that tells you to stop and the other that tells you that it will be fine, you will win!
