The classroom course
In this course you will have a unique opportunity to talk to and learn from an unrivalled expert on betting exchanges Peter Webb. Peter joined Betfair in June 2000 and has gone on to pioneer advanced trading techniques and strategies becoming one of their most successful users ever!
The objective of this course is to give you some clear structure to your trading by clearly and specifically examining the markets, how they work and why they move the way they do and what to do about it. It will take you right to the heart of key strategies and tactics that the most effective players are using on the exchanges. Peter will show you examples in order to demonstrate key principles clearly.You will see live as well as pre-recorded trading so that you will be able to see the theory translated directly into reality so you can see exactly how the market works, what to look for, when and how to avoid the most common errors.
Over the course of the day you will go from a broad view of the markets and then slowly narrow in your focus so you can learn exactly why something is likely to happen.During our time in the markets we’ve traded hundreds of thousands of events with hundreds of millions of pounds and analysed each one to understand how the markets work, in incredible detail. We aim to get the key messages across on the day and through all the follow up material. From there, it’s over to you!
This course is focused on strategies and tactics rather than the software, so it is advisable to get some use of software before attending the course.

About The Course
Topics Covered: –
Money Management, Entry and exit points, How to identify when, why and how odds change, Finding the sweet spot in the market, Understanding how volume arrives, when and with what frequency, Understanding when and how volatile the market is and what to do about it. When to enter the market for maximum effect. Steps required to get yourself to a no lose situation. How to match markets to strategies and strategies to markets.
Our main focus on the day are horse racing markets. We will also touch on other markets. A lot of strategies do not rely on underlying knowledge of the sport and can be equally applied to any different events or sports. Each event though has its own style and method, which we will also discuss, but the processes and tactics you learn can be applied elsewhere.
Who should attend?
This course will appeal most to people who you have tried trading or are starting out but looking for some firm guidance as to what they should do. Established users can use the course to confirm if they are on the right track and new users can use the course to skip experimentation to get involved right away with key strategies. It helps if you understand the simple basics of trading before you attend this course and have use of some trading software. We can provide software if you don’t already have some.
We start the day talking about money management, your core objectives when trading and expectation setting. We then move onto broader strategies before moving on to focus on specific markets and strategies that apply with in them. The course book acts as a useful reference point to follow through on the detail after the course is completed. The course is targeted at educating, filling out and cementing your understanding of how exchanges work and how to successfully use them. This is knowledge that you can take away and put into practice.
About Your Host
This course is hosted by Peter Webb
Peter brings much experience to the course thanks to his extensive research and analysis on Betting Exchanges and the underlying markets on them. Peter is a very established speaker and writer on this specialist subject as well as being one of the most successful exchange users ever. Peter was also the founder of Bet Angel which has gone on to become the standard measure for exchange trading software.
Peter has partnered Betfair at various events across Europe where he has traded live to demonstrate key Betfair strategies. He is also one of Betfair’s longest serving customers, having joined Betfair shortly after they first opened for business in June 2000. This has allowed him to build up unrivalled knowledge and experience of the markets.
Peter has consistently demonstrated his ability over a number of years. He has doubled a trading bank he was given at Royal Ascot in under three days, was featured in Racing ahead magazine with a 100% win rate for the Cheltenham festival and he traded live at the IX Investor show for Betfair where he earned £250 in just under ten minutes, live in front of an live audience.
As you will see on the day, Peter is a very heavyweight user of exchanges and an excellent reference point for all your activities. Peter has appeared on the BBC and Bloomberg, CNBC as well as being a regular writer for national magazines and is in constant demand for public speaking engagements.
“My objective is clear during any event, give the candidates the chance to learn from a professional and let them tap my extensive knowledge accrued over many years in order to get a short cut right to the heart of the matter. While I can’t promise to transform you to a superstar in one day, I can certainly point you firmly in the right direction.
I want to give people the chance to learn why the market acts the way it does, ask questions and get answers to things that I was desperate to know when I was a rookie. I’ll show you approaches and strategies that constantly deliver and examples of why each should be implemented. This will allow you to get straight to what you need to be without wasting a lot of money experimenting.
Each course is accompanied by a weighty course book which each attendee can use to follow through on specific points. Attendees can expect an enthusiastic and professional presenter who nearly always over runs!!!”
