Trading Horse Racing

All weather, all change

All weather, all change

It’s the 1st of September and Monday evenings at Windsor and a thing of the past for another year. I mourn the passing of the summer, but it’s not all bad news on the racing front. In the summer you will find that with so many races on the liquidity dilutes itself across many races. […]

Marmite Monday

Marmite Monday

It’s that day of the year that you either love or hate. The August bank holiday in the UK brings  a whole bunch of racing, all on the same day. There will be lots of meetings on today and about a billion races. This may seem like heaven for some, but it’s a nightmare for […]

York Ebor meeting

York Ebor meeting

Summer racing isn’t over quite yet and today kicks of the Ebor meeting at York. I’ve traditionally done OK at this festival each year so I am looking for something above average this week. Liquidity is usually quite good at York and I suspect I can get something decent out of some of these races. […]

Little and often

Little and often

This is a phrase I’ll often quote when advising people on how to trade. I posted up a full list of results from yesterday and it got a fair amount of commentary, because it illustrated exactly that point. More information further down this post. It’s really nice to bang in some massive results now and again, […]

US Open Tennis – Trading  short priced favourites

US Open Tennis – Trading short priced favourites

I was chatting with a few fellow traders on Skype during day three of the US Open this week and we commented that there seems to be a lot of surprise results in the WTA tournament, and in particular that both the ‘big name’ players appeared to be very short for starting prices in Grand […]

Summer has almost gone

Summer has almost gone

Seeing Wolverhampton on the card again made me realise another summer has almost passed into the spreadsheet of history. One of the realities of sports trading is that summer is peak season across a number of sports for me, so it’s a valuable time to get into top gear. I mourn it’s passing. But my […]

When to use form and when not

When to use form and when not

Each day I flick through the available sports on offer and have a quick look for anything interesting. On the racing today something jumped out immediately, Battle group in the 16:00 at Kempton. Battle group famously refused to race at the Grand National and caused a false start. They restarted, but it didn’t make it […]

Two horse races

Two horse races

Here are three two horse races for you: – (1) A two horse race yesterday at Epsom, utterly depressing. Difficult to trade, I made a loss. (2) A Tennis match, a joy of uncertainty and volatility. Currently occurring daily in NY at the US Open Tennis at the moment. Lovely to trade. (3) The ensuing premier […]

Southampton agree fee for tea lady

Southampton agree fee for tea lady

Quite a few jokes doing the rounds at the unprecedented sale of Southampton players which is attracting a lot of press. But inside the humour and horror (for Southampton fans) some serious lessons for traders. You can profit from the mayhem. But first, anecdotal reflection and another trading lesson. In 2003 I sat in the Millenium stadium […]

US Open Tennis – Scoreline statistics

US Open Tennis – Scoreline statistics

A short into to a regular new feature For some time I’ve been analysing various aspects of a number of key sports, but one thing that is the enemy of that is time, I don’t have any! So I’ve taken to surrounding myself with people who do and who are specialist in those areas I can’t devote […]

Sweet spots

Sweet spots

Every market has a sweet sport. Odds that will be reached more often than others, a score. This also applies to trading. Depending on how you chose to enter and exit, there is a sweet spot in terms of when it’s best to trade in and out. When I model a market I’m looking for sweet […]
