It might be a good idea to have the book percentages displayed in the 'Ladder' screen, for ease of reference.

Does a tightening over-round normally indicate a trend reversal? Or can it just as easily signify a continuation?

If it’s sunny, does this make it a good day?

Jeff, I see your questions on many message boards over several years. You have intrigued me and irritated me. Message boards need people like you.

Your question received no replies, I hope it provoked a lot of thought. I have always put a lot of emphasis on understanding the book %. I can still make a decent daily profit on the basic Betfair interface using only the overround.

I have data on overround that would make your eyes glaze over and I still cannot answer your question because it is not well enough defined.
Learn which factors affect the %.
Most won’t bother to do this. Thankfully.

Depends on your perspective and what other weather conditions there are... :)

Er, thanks, I think... :)

Out of interest, how have I irritated you?

So is the answer to my question: 'It depends on what else is happening in the market'? :)

Start by framing the market you are interested in.

as far as I see it... there isn't a 'The Market'

Are we talking about Aintree Grand National. Very specific market imo. Or, a Barney Curley last leg accumulator market at Kelso on Tues. evening.

Now the book % at SP may be exactly the same, but... during last 3 minutes for example, what were the volumes traded and what was the book make up across the first three in the betting.

Trying to make high probability trades without knowing some basic strategic info (doesn't have to be book % based) is a sure fire route to ruination.

Select a market type and understand it to the point where you could give a five minute seminar about it. Answering open questions from new traders.

Perhaps, but trying too hard can be equally costly...
