It's just over a month since Expo Bot V1 launched and it feels like it's been out for ages.
The interest in the bot even though it's running two Beta services has been phenomenal, and really opened my eyes to how popular automated betting has become.
The amount of people who want software to manage a betting portfolio is growing every day, and apart from Joe Punter who wants to throw his money away, for the more refined serious sports investor, this approach has fast become the go to method to run the daily bets and trades.
Which brings me on to today's post, which is in fact just a short update about what's coming up for Trade Guide V4 members.
The first thing I want to cover is Focus Ratings data being used for automated trading, which for those who don't know, FR is a company who provide exceptional ratings data.
This can be used to really decipher a each race, and find horses that trade well pre race, or even run well and often go on to win. The end goal as always is to give us an edge, which is what I use it for Dutching, betting, and trading at present.
The first test using this worked well enough to add a bolt on to the service, free for members, but a subscription to FR was required, and still is, but now I'm further down the line using this data with the trading it's making a lot more sense, and I've been doing much better on a consistent basis.
I still need to update results for this, as I've been experimenting so much I haven't been running exactly to system, hence why the results are a bit behind, but once I decide on the best way to introduce this to the service I'll then begin publishing updated results showing returns etc.
I need to experiment to push the services forward, I need to try and fail a few times, before I hit the spot and succeed consistently.
The way this will be introduced to the next Trade Guide update will actually elevate the service to a new level.
I also want to create more of a course you work through, so everything is fully understood. As opposed to creating some video content with a breakdown and bullet points, which is a lot of what I've done before. It works, but it can be so much better for the user I know this, so for the next Trade Guide V5 it will be.
Obvious benefits for myself are I get to personally reap the rewards of the improvements, plus I don't need to update the guide for a long time, we all get to profit from the initial work gone in.
Which is a point I have to mention, existing members you're fine, but I know when I release the next update I'll definitely have to limit places. Market volumes, liquidity, etc etc, the usual suspects.
Getting back on topic, the difference in the way the FR data is applied just with the simplest of changes has made a huge impact to the results, this is just a fact the profits per day have shot up. I know members who use FR will be emailing me pushing me to release this asap, and I will it's being worked on now. I want it available as soon as possible. As stated though, it will be in a format that is set up to stand the test of time. Well at least a year until next update.
Automated trading will also receive a new addition, with a fully set and forget method being included requiring no external subscriptions. This will be readied for the next guide version. Not speculative, this will actually be included. Ideally with Expo Bot, but Fairbot is still a solid reliable work horse that requires minimal input for this effective system you'll have access to.
Remote trading is actually a thing that is possible, amazing really. I mentioned recently in a post, I would be able to live trade for you. Not using your account or personal information, but however you've set up your details, ie your investment, percentage stakes etc, this will translate to my own trading and place them on your behalf.
This aspect will be something we can look to introduce for swing trading. For scalping I am unsure given the obvious ninja like timing and reactions required, so this will possibly come further down the line, but initially focusing on automated live trading that doesn't require the speed factor to the same level will be the way to go.
Scalping however, and how I will be adding this to my daily trade routine, also introducing it to the service, I'll have techniques on how I go about this within the next major trade guide update.
I'm also using new software in conjunction with FR which I want to cover in more detail in the next news post. The software I've now got access to and can demonstrate to you all is quite literally brilliant. Sometimes info overload, but with my help I'll show you the key areas to look at, and I'll start in my next news post.
Before the next trade version update I'll add the FR data options and my recommended changes to the bolt on area. This won't be the course based walk through, but the current format of a video example with detailed explanation and bullets.
If you're a trade guide member you'll know what I mean by this, if you're not, it's a section available to trade members who use FR data. This will be ready for you within the next few weeks.
The complete guide overhaul to introduce another automated method, a course based approach, adding full trading automation to the bot, and my scalping techniques, I'll confirm an ETA asap for this, as it's a lot of work that needs to be done right for the reasons explained.
In the meantime though, I'll get the FR based automated trading finished so everyone can benefit, and we can all bank decent profits before things get even more interesting with the V5 upgrade.
Any questions let me know, and I'll get back to you asap.
I also want to cover the specific analysis tool I'm using to identify trades both pre race and in play, which ideally tomorrow or Wednesday I'll have published within another Expo News, giving a more detailed demonstration.
Time is short, and we've a lot of money to bank before I wrap up this years totals. I've a lot of information to cover in a series of Expo News scheduled posts, don't miss out and make sure you're subscribed to my mailing list to stay in the loop. You can register on most pages of my site for free.
