    yes im doing well with forex so decided to rekindle my trading on betfair for a bit of fun. Hopefully the trading will stop me from being bored. Like i was all those years ago when i started this thread.

    I think trading forex will help me a lot when i start back up.

    Forex market is crazy, dodgy brokers and an industry full of scammers. Like betfair you need a large wedge of money to make a decent return.

    Seems to me not much has changed in these markets.

    Maiden races are a minefield
    NH Flat races are a minefield
    6-3 mins before off - trends occurs
    3-1 mins before off - prices consolidate
    1 min to 0 ... all over the place

    I got spanked in 2 of these.

    Next week I'll miss these rubbish races out.

    I've been using 1 tick offset. Not sure if that is limiting my gains and doing nothing for the losses.

    Any feed back on using offset?

    Yeah it is a bit of a ghost town lately, there are still a few of us hanging around. Odds-on favourites have cost me a fortune over time too. Good luck today.

    Also interested to hear how you're finding things on forex, any tips etc.

    Pre race is tough. I don't bother scalping anymore. More selective of races.

    if you think betfair trading is full of sharks then try forex, thankfully im from a hedge fund background so know a few institutional methods. I may try it here on Betfair if i can get an excel spreadsheet to update fast enough.
