I'm guessing you may have overloaded your knowledge base with too many new ideas/strategies. It's hard to know what to focus on first. IMO, it comes down to your personal preference(s).

If your methodical and super patient, maybe scalping would suit you. If you want a faster pace, quick moving trade, then swing trades and In-Play would suit you more.

Which sport is best for you? Football has many interesting aspects, Tennis is certainly a possible, Golf has its merits, of course there's horse racing.

Do you like automation? Can be a big help to trigger an entry into a market, the trader can then manage the exit, or vice-versa...

Any video or pdf/book can always be used as a reference point, when you try out something, stick with it. I reckon too many give up to soon and are sometimes nearer than they think.

I started trading with just £50 and was placing £2 - £5 bets. All you need to do is reduce your stakes and give yourself a bit more time to experiment and get to grips with trading.

Hi
Can anyone help me on this one? Are we able to green up on a potential profit on the free version of bet angel's 1 click screen? Also (this will totally reveal my lack of knowledge) am I completely thick - is anyone else experiencing difficulty trying to understand trading on the ladder when it's reversed? Any answers will be reverentially received -thanks

I have been scalping and learning for about three years and yes I make profit now but at first it was a long time before I made a profit so its really just learning and trying to improve bit by bit and it will eventually come to you but its very hard work learnign and takes a long time ..

Yes you can green up on the one-click using the basic version

This thread will explain the difference between reversed and normal odds display

I'm still taking my time to study and observe the market so that I don't make any tangible mistakes. I know mistakes help us to learn but I want to minimize it if I can... I need to equip myself with more training.

The unders price will drop not drift with no goals, if there is a goal the stop won't be matched as when market suspends the bet will be cancelled, the price will likely be a lot higher depending on how long into the game it is.
