I have never seen the Greyhouds trade this way before. Maybe I am having an off day... Anyone else trading the Dogs?

This is my first post on here, been trading about four months, and slowly getting there. I seemed to have clicked (or so I thought) with the greayhound's in the last week. I`ve found that the early races have been genuinely easy to trade but the evening races were harder, but last night I got it wrong nearly everytime I clicked my mouse, couldn`t understand it. I thought maybe it was always way but apparently not. What exactly was different from your point of view? :)

They were incredibly tough to read. Everything seemed to reverse and quicker than you could possibly get out. They got better towards the end of the evening.

Used to dabble on the greyhound market "filling the gaps" but could never really get to grips with it.i could never read the markets, and I think the majority of us are kidding ourselves if they think they can . Apart from a few big nights, liquidity is low markets are volatile and jump up and down ( just like you've experienced ).

I'm sure if you adjust your stakes to match levels of liquidity, or use automation, that there are those who do make it pay .

But after a full days trading the horses,I can't see the need to move onto the dogs ... that's far too long a day, and can only impact on your judgement, and more importantly your "enjoyment" of trading

Stick to what you know , don't get desperate and enjoy

Guess it's a case of a leopard never changing its spots

The markets never really did much, was my explanation of poor.

TBH I have been having much better success with the Greyhounds than horse racing, simply because I can really get into a rhythm with so many markets one after the other. Not making much. Some nights a good evening is the equivalence of one average loss on the horse racing.

Your right about liquidity but I don't trade them to make money, I use it to train myself.
Been trading the greyhounds every night for about 9 months now and in real mode the last 4 months with the occasional evening off and it doesnt really bother me, I enjoy it and its keeping me focused, I like trying out new ideas as its the same as horse racing except the markets are faster and more volatile.

The only difference really is when its time to close your position, it really is time to close. Horse racing gives you a few seconds but not on the greyhounds.

When the summer meetings start Ill move onto them but for now I am enjoying it.

After a full days trading, the need to move onto the dogs is because I am very focused on what I want and I know the only way to get there is to work at it. Doesnt take long to improve your focus levels.

Looking back at my trading diary post. I will update that in April. Its been 3 months since my last post and its fair to say in a humble way, I wont be going back to my old day job thats for sure.

Its difficult on football nights particularly, because it effects the greyhounds and Id rather be watching the footie.

I will take up Football and Tennis (well attempt to learn) trading as I have a big interest in them too but that is something for next year.

Please watch this space.

Good to see you doing well, might I suggest in a humble way for your own benefit that you don't update your trading diary.

If your doing well great, there really isn't any need to let everyone know.Yes it can spur others on to believe that they to can be successful .

But I think the trading diary however well intended or however honest you were being, just showed you in an incredabily bad light, especially in view of your post under other usernames .

I don't think anyone would ever believe you could be a successful trader after some of the things you said in that diary and the aggressive nature of some of your responses A lot of your posts since have been contradictory in respect of how you intended to trade, bank size etc .

I know I've been critical of you and others who make fanciful contradictory statements and expect us to believe them, and will continue to do so where I think someone is blatantly telling untruths or talking rubbish

You can give advice and pointers to others without going into P/L detail( I noticed you've started posted the odd good trade etc, with screen shots .. hmm

Your a knowledgeable guy, and passionate about horse racing, and probably an all round "good egg"



So please no trading update in April. Unfortunately people have long memories, and your credabilty in respect of your ability as a trader in many eyes is zero

If remarkably you've turned your inability to trade around ...Just enjoy life and the freedom that your new found trading ability allows .. but keep it to yourself

As I always say . Enjoy . Enjoy . And Enjoy

How many times mate do you need to tell me.

Ok I get it you do not want me to update my trading diary and your fully entitled to your opinion but we live in a free world. If your not interest in it, Why do you bother to right back?

Again what is with the statement with my inability to trade?
I think your kind of missing the point of what a forum is. Really.

Look lets be realistic here, my wife although suportive has no interest in trading, nor my family and friends.
I spend alot of time trading and additionally I spend a lot of time on this forum.
I enjoy it, I am trying my best and working my balls off to get to where I want to be.
I was very open and honest on my diary and we seem to be back to square one again. This topic is todays greyhounds, so let keep it back on topic.

We cant like everyone in this world nor can we all get along but there is no need for this on every single one of my posts.

Your really strange, its like you have a split persoanlity. Every message i ever read from you, you say nice things and horrible things at the same time.

lets face reality here, no matter how many times you knock me down. I am getting back up.
I am only human and I make mistakes.
Next time you see a child fall over please dont tell them they will never walk again.

Cheers

Everyone is entitled to their opinions and views, and to challenge and question those of others. As long as it it doesn't get personal and abusive, that's the whole point if any forum

Which is something I've never done, but you unfortunately have on many occasions become abusive with forum members, and tried to make things personal ( as recently implying I've no friends , and have a split personality )

I was only giving my opinion and my views,which I'm fully entitled to. And have never insulted you or any one else personally.

I have often given you advice and detail of where you can get the info you need .. remember Adrian Massey site , list if defunct racecourse and name of book you couldn't remember etc

Don't take things personally and don't resort to personal abuse it just undermines your credibility even further.

Just enjoy your trading !!!
