Well done! With profits like that you could take the rest of the week off. How much of it was manual/automated?
all manual, I have automation on subaccounts but very small profit, i have good ideas i think but not good at implementing cant program etc
Truly amazing Rik. You are what I want to be when I am a grown up trader :D ..is this punting or trading?

If anyone is using the data from here
https://promo.betfair.com/betfairsp/prices

I've just realized that the volume and price data (except BSP) is wrong for Australia. They base the morning data off of GMT... which stuffs everything up (specifically the prepost data is less than the morning data, and morning data = IP plus prepay (mostly))

Desperate big backer appears to have changed tack (unless its someone else) and is instead putting smaller bets in but smashing it in relentlessly

There are lots of data errors in those files such as Place prices shown as Win prices for some races! I download them monthly and always examine them for obvious price errors that I check/correct using Trueform. As an experiment calculate the Book %ages of some markets historically.

First profitable month on BF ..ever...had a shocker of a last few days though. ...trying not to let it knock my confidence. The mind games in one's own head (as said by every successful trader ) in this domain are amazing :shock: .I am trying to lean on a few years of martial arts training to achieve mushin while trading. Not easy :D
