Gone To The Dogs

Gone To The Dogs

So if this is your first years trading then the last few weeks may have been a bit of a shock for you following the hectic summer period.

You go from being spoilt for choice over which markets to trade just a few weeks ago, to suddenly having very few markets to look at. The ones which are available will have a very different feel to what you have become accustomed to – however this is perfectly normal for this …

Trading Betfair Tennis markets automatically

Trading Betfair Tennis markets automatically

My (automated) Tennis trading journey

When I first looked to trade tennis with automation my initial mistake was trying to create a single automation file and apply it to all the day’s matches. I soon learned this was never going to work and instead started taking some time to use the wealth of stats and data available for tennis from a number of website’s and other sources to carefully select matches most suited to specific strategy/rule I was trying to …

Using Advanced Automation on Bet Angel

Using Advanced Automation on Bet Angel

We receive a lot of requests on how to create rules using our Advanced Automation feature. The creation of a rule is a fairly simple process provided you apply basic logic to it. We always advise clients to write down their requirements in logical statements describing the process. You must bear in mind the software cannot make decisions for itself, you must instruct it what to do and then it will act.

The possibilities are endless but let’s start with

Today could be your independence day

Happy 4th of July to our American users. Hold on we don’t have any (yet)!

But the independence I am talking about takes a slightly different slant anyhow.

When we first designed Bet Angel it was a very simple one click interface. As time evolved we branched the product out to include more and more features, it was a reflection of our journey through the markets.

One of the early features we put into Bet Angel was the link to

You can customise the way Bet Angel searches for markets. We have had some requests for a way to fast add Each Way markets in Horse Racing. Betfair only recently added each way markets to UK Horse racing, not to be confused with the standard Place markets. At the moment liquidity is poor but hopefully they will become more popular as time progresses and more people take an interest.

There is currently no way to use “Quick Picks” via Guardian …

Automated trading on Betfair – Profiting from a steamer

Automated trading on Betfair – Profiting from a steamer

When a horse starts getting backed, people will often pile into the gamble and the price will steam in. You can benefit from this, using Bet Angel’s automation tools…

One of the best trades to pick up on in a horse racing market is a jolly good ‘steamer’. That is horse racing parlance for a horse who keeps on getting backed and backed, the opposite to a ‘drifter’. There can be any number of reasons for this to happen …

Automating your activity with Bet Angel

Automating your activity with Bet Angel

Bet Angel automation is quite simple. When you first fire it up though, you may not thing this but lets look at why a complicated looking interface is easy to understand once you look at each section in turn rather than as a whole.

Rules files

Firstly, let’s have an overview of the terminology. In Bet Angel we call the automation instructions ‘Rules’. These ‘Rules’ simply tell Bet Angel what to do and when to do it. You can …

Win by backing the loser

Win by backing the loser

An unusual strategy but one I documented in this recent post on the Betfair web site.

The dutching in Bet Angel contains a neat feature called the ‘margin maker’. This allows you to create a book with one price offset to a nominated value. This is useful for risk management when deploying a strategy in a market where you have some idea where the odds will go. Whether this is the time value in a football match or the price …

Estimating correct score odds

Estimating correct score odds

In this video I discuss a simplistic approach to estimating correct score odds by deriving them from the match odds markets. You can do this automatically in Bet Angel. There are several layers and depths you can get to with pricing models and this is a fairly simple ‘top level’ model that is easy to understand but is not particularly refined.

For clarity I’ve also included a market where this model is not appropriate and where you should use a …

The risk meter – A hidden gem

The risk meter – A hidden gem

Bet Angel contains a near little feature hidden away in the market overview screen, it’s called the risk meter.

If you trade on horse racing then this handy little tool will allow you to measure what a market feels like. This means you can adapt your trading style according to this measure. Some markets suit certain styles and others don’t. So using the risk meter will give you a better assessment on how the market feels and what to do …

Strange places to trade from..

Strange places to trade from..

Over the many years I’ve been trading, I generally never pass up a clear opportunity to do a decent trade or trading session. This has led me to trade from all manner of places.

Just before I left my final job in the corporate world many years ago I’d often trade in the toilet. Bit odd you may think, but as I got more and more into trading I started to take bigger and bigger positions and they need careful …
