After a great first week we had a bit of a knock back this time round with three full losses.
Still in profit thanks to the gains made last week.

We approved this system in October after it made 104 points up to 22nd August. Since then it’s continued to perform admirably with the following results:
So that’s a total of 255 points since August!

As you may remember from last month, I gave this service an Approved rating and even made it my Tipster Service Of The Year. That seems to have been a major curse on it as, since the turn of the year, it has taken an absolute nosedive in terms of performance.
I had this posting all ready to go this morning, when the daily email arrived saying that the service vendors and not happy with the tipster’s recent results and are keeping close tabs on it.
My figures show it is still well in profit since it began and December was a fantastic month, the big problem comes for anyone who has joined since the first week in January.
The advice is to start your membership with a 50 points bank, any new members that joined around the 3rd or 4th of January will have seen that bank shrink dramatically. I chose those dates specifically as they mark the high-tide mark for my bank. On those days my level stakes bank record shows a balance of 180 points, that’s 130 points in profit! In the 3 weeks since the bank has taken a significant hit and, as of last night, stands at 132 points. Still 82 points profit from my start point but a 50 point starting bank would be as good as gone.
Obviously, all systems and tipsters run hot and cold at some point and December made a profit of over 50 point. That’s of little comfort if you joined in early January and followed their advice of a 50 point bank. If you joined around the end of our trial period, you would be around 18 points down. Whilst that sounds quite a large amount, it does only represent about 4 winners at the average prices they target
I will continue to monitor performance on this service but would hope that the starting bank advice will be altered to 100 points for new members.
If it continues to struggle and the profit made during our trial is diminished beyond a reasonable amount, I will be reconsidering its Approved status.

With bets advised for every day of last week, it was another profitable week for this service …
19th Jan : £+22(1.44)
20th Jan : £-50
21st Jan : £+54.5 (2.09)
22nd Jan : £+26.5 (1.53)
23rd Jan : £-50
24th Jan : £+41 (1.82)
25th Jan : £+60 (2.20)
You will recall that I elected to amend the staking in the second week where the advised stakes were increased to ‘recover’ the bank balance, after a run of poor results. It was too close a call for me and for this review I amended the 1pt staking to reflect a 20 pt bank. Interestingly enough, had I stuck with the recommended 10 pt bank, the profit would be showing at a little over 80% of the initial start balance, which is impressive for three weeks ‘work’.4 comments

I am looking at Confidential Racing, in fact I have been looking at it for 2 weeks now but for several reasons I have been unable to record progress.
The service is simple, you get several emails through the morning and early afternoon. Unusually for tipster services Russ records his profits to BSP , I will record both. The email also contains recommended stakes from a 115 point bank.
The website is refreshing too, no hyperbole and stupid blurb, just sign-up here really, I kinda like that as I almost never read pages of preamble anyway.
I aim to update this blog after racing has completed every Sunday.
Here are the results so far:
|21-Jan||3.4||Catterick||Made of Diamonds||Placed|
|22-Jan||3.15||Gowran Park||Gallant Oscar||Lost|
|22-Jan||4.4||Chelmsford City||Virtual Reality||Placed|
|24-Jan||3||Cheltenham||Value At Risk||Placed|
Week 1: 14 winners from 37 bets for
Advised Odds: 19.98 points. BSP: 35.14 points.

It’s all about Thursdays.
Whether or not you are a financial trader, you will have heard about what happened last Thursday.
The Swiss National Bank scrapped the Euro cap on the Franc and all hell broke loose.
I heard via a trader in the following message:
“Wow. Swiss bank removed the minimum exchange rate (a floor that’s been there for years) and lowered interest rate to -0.75% causing a 1600+ pip move on EUR/CHF!”
The next day I heard that several brokers had got into serious trouble. Alpari is now insolvent, FXMC was in breach of regulatory capital requirements and there was chatter that clients were emptying their ETX Capital accounts in preparation for a statement.
What caused this?
The Swiss National Bank took the decision to peg the Swiss franc to the euro during the crisis of 2011, in order to stop the franc becoming too strong against the euro. This was to ensure Swiss export could remain competitive. It set a minimum of 1.20 francs to the euro and basically had to buy up Euros since then to maintain this level.
Last Thursday, without warning, they scrapped this rule and the franc shot up 30% in value. It had to happen at some point as obviously they couldn’t keep buying Euros forever just to keep the value of the franc down.
The repercussions will be felt long term by Swiss exporters but in the short term it was a disaster for an awful lot of traders. With an unpredicted move happening that big and that fast, traders got wiped out and brokers got caught out too with massive losses including Alpari who went into administration on Monday.
It’ll be interesting to see what kit West Ham will be wearing on Saturday as Alpari were their sponsors!
Anyway, as that was all happening I logged into my trading account, sipped on my cup of tea, clicked a few buttons, and increased my account value by 5.3%. It took me about ten minutes.
Was I bothered about the chaos going on around me?
Was I pulling my hair out, screaming at the screen, as the blood drained out of my face while my account emptied?
Did I feel a certain sense of satisfaction that I was making good money whilst all around me were losing their shirts?
You see, the problem with ALL other trading systems except the one I use, is that you have to make a decision on which way the market is going to move. This is directional trading. You are basically gambling that the market will move in the direction you think it will move. If it does, you make money. If it doesn’t, you lose money. Successful traders get it right more often than they get it wrong, but as we saw last Thursday, even if they are very successful traders, one really bad move can wipe them out, or at least set them back a long way.
Personally, I couldn’t give two hoots which way the market is going to move. The way I trade, I make money if the market goes up; I make money if the market goes down… I even make money if the market is level and goes nowhere!
How can this be?
Well those of you that have been readers for a while will probably know I’m talking about a trading system called PIE.
And here are some of the latest comments from readers that have learned the method:
“I would like to thank you for giving me the possibility of changing my life thanks to the PIE strategy” Carlos
“I attended your course on 26.3.2014. Thanks so much for the life-changing information. You may recall that I work for the NHS and was disillusioned with the intended government changes to the NHS pension scheme. I am now taking active steps to convert my NHS pension to a SIPP.” Dr Kuhan (NHS Doctor)
“It’s Chris here from Jersey (I attended your course back on 7th August 2012). I wanted to take the time to say a huge thank you for the ongoing support and updates on the PIE variations following the course back in 2012.” Chris
“Including today’s close my live portfolio has risen by 9.81% in 4 months. Thanks for your help” David
And one reader kindly included his returns since learning method and showed that he had made £14,593.30 using it.
One important thing to point out about this strategy is that it only takes 10 minutes a MONTH to operate!
Anyone can spare 10 minutes a month, and if an NHS doctor can find the time, I’m pretty sure most others could too.
Here’s the thing. Last Thursday we saw how traditional trading methods have a major flaw that can end up with people losing everything. Next Thursday, you have the opportunity of learning how to trade so that you won’t lose no matter what happens in the markets, where you don’t have to take a position on which way the market is going to move and where you can make money year in, year out, in about ten minutes a month.
I learned the method nearly three years ago now and I can say, hand on heart, that this is quite simply the best way to trade I’ve ever seen. Nothing else even comes close.
There is one place on the January master class taking place next Thursday. It’s run by Glynn Calvert and Paul Bent who have been teaching their method to small groups of people for the last three years and they really have been changing lives.
If you are even slightly curious about this then I would urge you to give Paul Bent a call. He is not a salesman, he’s just happy to answer any questions you might have to help you decide if this is something for you or not.
Don’t put it off. Paul is off on a month long holiday for the whole of February and he can do this because this is the sort of lifestyle that PIE allows, so give him a call and find out for yourself what this is all about. You won’t regret it.

Tam’s Tips is as the name suggests a tipping service from the Probetting Club.Up to 4 Horse racing win back tips a day are received after logging in to the site at 1230 with a password that is provided.The service is currently on an offer for £19.75 per month or £44.75 per quarter until the end of January.Thereafter the normal rate is £39.50 p.m or £89.5p.q.So if you take advantage of the offer it works out to be in round terms 50 pence per day.
The service has been running since May 14 and claims to have had 7 winning months and just 1 losing month for a total gain of 311 points as of 31 Dec 14;having dealt with the Probetting Club on several other services I have no reason at all to doubt the accuracy of these figures.A betting bank of 100 points is needed and the tips can be automated onto Bet Engine.
I shall be testing the system for 3 months so that we can see the performance through the main part of the NH/AW season and the transition into the Turf season as well.A paper betting bank of £500 is used and a point is £5.
I started receiving the selections on 7 Jan 15 and this report covers the first 14 days.
7 Jan 15- 20 Jan 15
During this period I received 26 tips varying from 2 point selections to 5 point selections and had 11 winners for Strike Rate of some 42.3%.The longest winning run in the period was 5 and the longest losing run was 3.The selections during this period were all rather short so that despite the excellent Strike rate I ended the first 2 weeks 7.67% down.However early days and let’s see where we are at the end of the next 2 week reporting period.
