Firstly let me explain the subject line as it's not click bait.
It took me 151 days starting with a £100.00 investment to turn it into £1014.16, you can see a full daily breakdown of this here.
This was achieved by trading the Betfair exchange pre race, which if you don't know is locking in a profit before a race begins, and I obviously won more times than I lost over this trading period.
The target was a simple enough £100 to £1000 challenge, and I didn't realize I'd actually hit target until tallying up my results to publish last night, so hurrah!
It took a lot longer than I anticipated due to other work getting in the way, and definitely not down to lack of trading opportunities each day following the trading method. If I'd traded most days I'd have nailed it a lot sooner.
Things could have been more straight forward if I'd stuck to the primary trading strategy within the Trade Guide V4, but I went off piste experimenting with an automated method I ended up ditching, and tinkered with a few other ideas.
Also a few other things I could have done differently, which would have brought me to target much faster. I'll include these in my upcoming Version 5 Trade update. What worked better was the original method I started with, but using it with automation withing Fairbot.
Still though, forty one percent of twelve month trading cycle to hit a 915% balance growth is still pretty good.
The challenge now for my trading is to focus purely on creating a detailed web course for Trade Guide V5, with easy to learn trades that can be applied daily, but delivered in a structured module based system.
The option to automate the trades and set them up in the morning or night before is very important to a lot of members, and I'll be making sure this is improved with all the tools you need to do the job in one bespoke trading platform.
What this means is Hedger Pro (HP) with the vast wealth of data it contains, and Focus Ratings (FR) which is the best horse racing daily benchmark available, all in one product. You did read that correctly, both services available in one place, but with the ability to place the trades either manually or using automation built in to HP.
It's looking like a distinct possibility at this moment in time, otherwise I wouldn't be mentioning it. Would this be something you're interested in?
In addition to this a Remote Trading platform is being set up later this year, which is what it says, but operating over the cloud using a licensed Betfair product Cloud Bet Bot (CBB).
I'm feeling upbeat starting this new chapter at Exponential Bet, after finishing some much needed streamlining, site updates, and adding more value for the subscriptions or one off guides available. You can find out more about what's included via the new Join page.
Existing Dutch Betting and One Subscription members I'll be writing to you over the course of this week, as you'll notice some plans have changed to include more, and will want to know what's included with your current option.
I reached a point each day receiving emails asking what's included in each membership, spending too much time explaining what's what (which is my own fault btw for not making things simple in the first place), so I simplified everything.
You can see in each grid what's included within your membership, either all in one place via the join page, or on each of the product or service pages.
I've been meaning to start an active social media channel on You Tube for a long time now, but with the clogged up and messy site just confusing people, instead of giving a clear message of what's involved and what you get, I've been constantly side tracked and bogged down.
A fresh routine involving nothing more than betting and trading which I can then bring to membership services, the blog, and my social media, which brings me back to CBB.
One of the things I found time consuming that I've now virtually done away with completely, is sending emailed betting or trading advice, and working out ways for members to get the emails at the right time, to manually add the information to Betfair, and then achieve the same results as myself. Virtually impossible by email I discovered.
Emailing advised bets and trades is not the future of betting and trading advice services, I wrote a blog on this a while ago which you can read here:
I will still send my One Dutch BSP Multiple bets to members five days a week by midday, as it's embedded into my own routine anyway. On days when these bets apply emailing is the only option, as automating Betfair BSP Multiples is not possible.
Remote Betting and Trading using CBB, along with fully automated systems running using software such as Expo Bot V1 however is the future of betting and trading services, in my very humble, but I'd like to think well informed opinion the way forward.
The benefits of this are obvious, with the ability to place the bets or trades close to race time without having to stop and email, losing valuable time, and also creating the grey area within a situation that can change in an instant. Also for people unable to react to emailed betting or trading advice, which is the majority of people out there due to work commitments, or even being in another country and timezone.
The list of benefits goes on and on, and I'm genuinely delighted to begin offering these options for my members.
I'll cover this in my next blog post tomorrow, as I'm conscious of my blog posts around the 800 word mark suddenly in what feels like the blink of an eye becoming 3000 plus words.
I've a fair bit to cover about the new site update, why I took two over weeks away from producing new content to set it up this way, and what I'm lining up to deliver, so I'll spread this over a series of posts starting tomorrow.
If you're interested in Remote Dutch Betting which is now available to subscribe via the Dutch Betting or Join pages, please bear in mind you'll be starting during initial pre release while we're finalizing the platform for official launch. This isn't a beta version though as it's a Dutch system I've been using for years, it's just the platform itself using CBB is in its final development and we're just a matter of weeks away.
Thanks for reading, back tomorrow.
