Bit of an odd period for this system since the last update. I’ve had plenty of bets and, for the first time since the start of the trial, there have been several error free days in a row.

We’ve also seen a mixed run of results send the bank to a new low point, before a couple of full house days allowed them to recover some of the losses accrued.

A tricky week last week for this service and if you read Paul’s comments below you’ll see he’s decided to scrap the ‘NS’ or Non-Service trades. These were riskier trades that he wasn’t personally taking but gave out for interest. Apparently quite a few people were following these trades blindly so Paul has taken the decision to only put out the trades he’s personally taking, so everyone should be getting very similar results now.

Here’s the official results using only the service trades:

Trade Copier Results {TC}
Days:19
Trades:15
Wins:7
Breakeven:4
Losses:4
Account % increase: +1.3%
Max Drawdown: 1.1%
Average Risk per trade: 0.7%
Pips: 107

And Paul’s weekly commentary below:

Hi, Paul here from signals4forex.

That was a tricky week for trading the FX markets, I was certainly put to the test.
Some of the news releases baffled us all with expectations going the opposite way, and price too, to what research and respected ‘experts’ predicted.

But hey, that’s trading for you and you either love it or hate, let it get you down or get on with it. It’s been quite a tough 19 days in fact but we’re still in positive territory and if followed from the beginning the ‘live’ account has not gone in to negative territory at all.

Remember if comparing FX services, especially trade copying services, to ensure they trade from a live account and trade moderately. So many TC services have multi-trades per day open and then boast about a 1000 pips per month etc.

Yes they may well have achieved that but there could be 5-10 trades live at any one time. Are you going to risk that? Chances are the pairs you choose to follow will not do so well or the stress of so many open trades will take it’s toll.

Services that keep risk low, have minimal trades and advertise realistic gains and losses are what you should be looking for or comparing me to.

I’ve decided not to forward any more ‘NS’ {Non-Service} trades due to too many followers taking them blindly and time restraints my end too. So in the interests of a simple and honest service it’s best I leave them out  and just forward the trades that I’m actually taking on my live account.

Rather than have another results title such as ‘withdrawn trades’ I’ve just counted withdrawn trades as losses. Example today, we had around a 60 pip stop on a trade but I cancelled the trade due to lack of movement with a 20 pip or so deficit and classed it as a loss though in reality it never lost.

There’s been lots of ‘no trade’ days for the ‘TIM’ followers. Sometimes, and most certainly in present trading conditions, it’s just too tricky to manage price movement via Tweeting but relatively simple via the TC.

The markets control the frequency of trades, not me, but it will all even out in time and trades will occur more often for ‘TIM’ followers.

Those of you that have concerns or doubts or just plain old questions regarding a trade copier service then please do ask me at signals4forex@hotmail.com.
 
Cheers
Paul.

I have been trialling this service for three months. The claim is;

“Banker Bets is a brand new service focussed on low-odds, high strike rate betting designed to steadily increase your bank at minimal risk.

From August 14th, 2014 through June 30th, 2015 this highly selective form of betting has achieved 247% profit on the starting bank betting at level stakes!

There have been 10 profitable months out of 11 and an average profit of 22.45% of starting bank per month.

That’s just betting at level stakes, and those who are willing to take a slightly more aggressive approach and compound their winnings have already seen profit of well over 500%!”

The bets placed are in the win markets for football, tennis, American football and basketball, although neither of the last two categories were covered in the testing period due to seasonal timing.

John operates from some exotic location in Asia. The bets are sent through by email, always with plenty of notice and usually in the morning for those of us in the UK. What you get with the selection is the reasoning behind the picks. Occasionally you will get a win double. Obviously the odds are always skinny, and so when a losing bet is encountered, it will take 3 or 4 bets to recover.

There is much to admire about the service. It is as transparent as it can be, results are recorded to average available odds – there aren’t many services I know of which do that – and winning runs can be very long indeed (a few around 20).

The service has encountered only one losing month and, wouldn’t you just know it, that was during the testing period in May. What was really impressive about this was that the service recovered from a 37% deficit on the bank at the end of May to the current level of 19.4% profit. The French Open tennis bets took a few hits, as did some of the Scandinavian football bets. So from 128 bets, the profit of 19.4% doesn’t look overwhelmingly successful – but taking into account the 37% drawdown, it was robust enough to stage a recovery, and I can see it continuing in that vein.

The 19.4% profit was made to level stakes – the advice is to compound, and the compounded stakes made slightly less profit at 18.6%. However, the BEST available odds, compounded, returned a profit of 67%.

The service won’t be for everyone. I tend to view it like a laying service. You can expect to win most of your bets (83% since the start of the service), but when you lose, your loss will take a few wins to recover from. By compounding the bank to suggested 10%, you would have made over 500% profit in under a year without breaking into a sweat. So it’s more a service for the pros and well-disciplined, and if you fancy turning £1k into £5k in a year, you could give this a go – leave it in for a further year and… well you do the maths!

Negatives – there aren’t really any to put you off. I am always a little bit wary of one man band services – you have to rely on the circumstances of the individual and none of us knows where those circumstances might take us – but the cost of the service is hardly an issue from a continuation point of view. And with compounding – well, you’re not ACTUALLY going to be compounding at 10%; you’ll be rounding up or down. I did try and run this on Betfair and whilst that IS possible, I found the back odds minus commission couldn’t keep up with the average bookie odds – I also found some of the bookies didn’t like the bets, but that is an ongoing issue for those of us on the bookies’ radar.

My overall impression is that this is an excellent service; well-reasoned, easy to operate and transparent. AND the cost is a very reasonable £27 per month, there is currently a 75% discount available on the first month and a 30 day 100% no quibble money back guarantee.

I have no hesitation in putting this service in the RECOMMENDED category.

Week 20-24/07 Stats and Review

Sorry for not posting any daily figs for last week, here they are …

 

Date Overnight Breakfast Daytime Evening Return
20-Jul 2 2 4 3 1.18
21-Jul 1 1 6 0 2.96
22-Jul 2 2 3 3 -4.83
23-Jul 7 2 2 2 2.48
24-Jul 4 0 3 0 1.68
 Total 3.47

 

 

A typical week I suppose in the life of JAS.  Thursday was very active with 13 signals in the day but 7 were overnight in the UK.  The figures speak for themselves so not much I can say.   The updated spreadsheet can be found here.

I have temporarily removed the TradeOpen page from the spreadsheet while I organise the supply of the historical prices.  The people I found to supply that data apologised for not updating the file in good time last week.  Having found where they announce their updates it looks like the weekly updates can be anything from Sunday – Tuesday (Wall Street time).  Also because they publish the figures as a monthly file updated weekly they may change this at month end (they don’t want 2 updates within a day or two of each other!).  Hey it’s free and I’m just pleased they do this!  J  The update for last week has not been published yet.

Link to previous blog (Review for the week 13/07 – 17/07).

Week 3

Last 2 hours: 51 winners from 654 bets for -95.32 points.

Overall: 70 winners from 927 bets for -97.36 points.

 

Evening: 68 winners from 887 bets for 45.31 points.

Overall: 102 winners from 1238 bets for 181.28 points.

 

I’m not giving up on the afternoon bets. At the end of the trial I should have enough data to see if a tweak or two in qualifying odds may improve the overall situation. But I will need the remaining period of this trial to collect the data.

Evening racing is looking good though :)
