Well, I’d got the hang of this by yesterday and managed to get all the trades on. I got pretty much exactly the same levels as Adam, with the exception of one trade where I was 8 pips out.

Still, an excellent day!

Winning Day Trader

Last Wednesday I received the following e-mail from one of my readers:

“Hi Graham.

I am a long term reader of your site and I have an exclusive proposition for you!

For the past 2 years I have been a successfully spread betting the major indices and a little forex (90% index, 10% FX).

Having recently changed accountants, my new one has informed me that if spread betting is my sole source of income I could be liable for tax. Now having not paid a penny for the last 2 years I became a little concerned as my income has been high.

This leads me onto my offer for you – I am looking to start a very small trading group where I will send a text message when I enter a trade with a defined stop and target.

I have averaged 150 points profit a week (600 per month) so even using small stakes members will make a very good return.

I am not looking to make a fortune, but just enough that should HRMC ever ask, I can show that the service is my main business.

However I am not very technically minded so do not have any website. The service will be restricted to just 35 members and this is exclusive to you. The monthly fee will be £249. If any members leave (however I can’t see anyone leaving) I will come back to you to replace from your site.

I know the high price point will limit our market but I am prepared for you to trial the service on your site free of charge for however long you see fit.

If you are interested please let me know and we can go about setting this up. I can start sending you the selections from Monday.

Thanks Adam”

Of course, my first reaction was…£249 a month? But then I read it again and realised what he was offering. An average of 600 pips a month is £6000 a month tax free at £10 a pip. Or £3000 a month at £5 a pip! Or £1200 a month at just £2 a pip. It’s a bargain if he can produce those kinds of results.

Ok, I was interested, subject of course, to a full trial here on Cash Master.

I agreed to a trial, and Adam sent me a screenshot of his IG Index ‘My Watchlist’ whereby he has all the markets that he trades neatly grouped together. I copied this on my own IG Index account ready to go.

So from Monday, Adam has been sending the trades through via text message. A typical message is like this:

“Short Germany 30 @ 9750″

When it comes through, I login to my account via an app on my phone, immediately click on the Germany 30 market and click on ‘Sell’. This gets me in on the trade usually within a minute of the text coming through.

After a minute or so, I’ll get another text through from Adam like this:

“Stop @ 6866
Limit@ 6806″

So then I go to my trade again and now enter the Stop and Limit levels.

I can then log out and get on with my day.

It’s worth noting that I do this on an iPhone app. IG Index has an app that works on most phones and tablets and I opted to use this simply because I’m generally in and out the house throughout the day, either doing the school run, shopping, off to the gym, taxi service for the kids etc. so it’s not practical for me to try to be at the computer all day just waiting for trades.

Anyone thinking they might be interested in this should be aware that you will obviously need to be placing your trades within minutes of Adam, so that you get in at the same levels, so unless you are at your computer all day, then a phone app (or even a telephone account at IG) will be the way you do it.

Trades come through at anytime throughout the day so I suspect for most people, using a phone app will be the most convenient.

Often we get a message saying to close a trade manually:

“Close Germany trade here manually please”.

This is because Adam is constantly monitoring the markets and reacting to news. On Monday I had the following message:

“Bomb alert at Luton airport… time to reshort Ftse at 6824″

So it doubles as a news service too apparently!

I will be posting my results, and Adams results, here on the blog on a regular basis. I have to say; so far it seems to be the real deal. The results have been amazing.

I missed most of the morning trades on Monday simply because I hadn’t realised they start quite early and I had my phone on mute. Still, they are all time stamped so I could check them off against Adams to see his were genuine.

I’m trading at minimal stakes, £2 usually, so my results are obviously going to be less impressive than Adams, but it’ll give you an idea of what is possible for really small traders too.

Here are Monday’s trades for Adam:



And I got:

FTSE 100 £41 @ £2
FTSE 100 £32 @ £2

Total: £73

The Diff Code

A losing week last week for the Diff Code:

1/9 +£50.68
2/9 -£112.20
3/9 No Trade
4/9 No Trade
5/9 No Trade

Weekly Profit: -£61.52
Total Profit: +£137.09

Here’s what Martin had to say about the results:

“Still amazingly quiet with only two trades indicated this week. Mind you a lot of the working community didn’t return until midweek, coinciding with the end of the long summer break enjoyed by the schools.

Monday’s trade was recorded as a winner at the recommended profit level and was perfectly straightforward. Tuesday’s trade was a very close run thing, with the profit range being pushed to the limit before reversing. I know many of you were successful, but it really was down to timing. For the independent trading record, this trade was taken at 7.35, and unfortunately recorded a loss.

So overall a slight negative on what turned out to be a pretty uneventful week. But congratulations, to all those who secured a win on Tuesday and ended the week up.

The final month (month 6) of BetHawk was very encouraging. DPcm9 gained 223.58 pts over the monthly period: August 2nd to September 1st. The bank finally stands at 1002.24 pts. Also  the official DP9 system had a  gain of  253.38 pts during this same period, ending overall at 919.67 pts.  Both my DPcm9 results and the official DP9 results quoted here are from live Betfair accounts.

Operation of the BetHawk robot  (and also the VPS)  have remained flawless. There has only been one day when the robot was down and this was at  the point of service for maintenance.

Here are the bets from DPcm9 for the sixth month of testing:

Now for the stats:
Starting Bank: 1000 pts

Lowest Bank: 750.42 pts

Highest Bank: 1147.24 pts

Number of Betting Days: 189 out of a possible 190

Total Number of Bets: 8681

Winning Months: 2/6

Losing Months: 4/6

Current Bank: 1002.24 pts

Total Profit/Loss:  2.24 pts

Return on Bank:  0.22%

At £2 a point, we have a gross profit of only £4.48. Taking into account the six month cost of the software  (£330)  for the basic stake of  £2 per point, there is a net loss of £325.52. Furthermore, if you need to purchase a VPS to run the software that would have cost about another £90.


Two software programmes come with BetHawk:

The first one is Hawk Config and it  is completely free . With it one can examine the  results from  24 individual micro-systems or any selection of individual micro-systems (the service Portfolios or your own)  over the past year or longer.  Examination of the Hawk Config  results over the same time period as my trial gives a final bank for DPcm9 of  992.27 pts. This is very close to my own result of 1002.24 pts; bearing in mind there were 8681 bets in this period. The Hawk Config  results are therefore reliable. The second software programme is Hawk Bot, which you purchase and it places the bets automatically for you with betfair using the micro-systems  that one has selected with Hawk Config.

Using the free Hawk Config software, we can see  how the Dynamic Portfolios have performed.  Anyone who had followed those portfolios using the basic £2 stake through the different versions from 01-08-13 (starting date of portfolios) to 31-08-14 would have had a net return, after paying subscription costs, of:

DP5 -£160.82
DP6 £48.36
DP7 £81.08
DP8 £273.74
DP9 £110.92

DPcm9 £272.14


If they had used the max stake possible of £50 per system the same figures would be (again accounting for subscription costs):

DP5 £7,009.00
DP6 £13,528.50
DP7 £15,636.50
DP8 £21,743.00
DP9 £18,962.50

DPcm9 £23,118.5


Taking into account the performances of  DPcm9 (and DP9) in my own six month live account trial, the substantial recovery in the last month and the performance of the system portfolios over the last 12 months, I am awarding BetHawk a Neutral Rating.  The jury is still out whether BetHawk is profitable over the long term.  I will  continue to assess BetHawk  and I will provide further updates.

The Racing Professionals

Just a quick heads up about this service.

It’s produced £800 profit to just £10 level stakes in the first six weeks of my trial.

As mentioned last week they are offering an ‘End Of Season’ special offer on new subscriptions.

The offer is access to selections until the end of the season for the lowly cost of £34.99.

In previous years they have made profits during this time of 60 points in 2013 and a whopping 111 points in 2012 so they are very optimistic about finishing the season with a bang.

This offer allows people to get in on the ground floor and see what the service is all about for a low cost while they aim to make huge profits for all during the last period of the flat season.

This will only be offered to 50 users and then the offer will be closed. As of last week, half of the spaces have gone so if you wish to try this out for a very low price then now is the time.

Three Key Football

My time has been limited on identifying games over the last couple of weeks so there hasn’t been that much to report back on. As a reminder the method for selecting games is very subjective and not everyone will get the same results. I’m hoping that in the near future the number of qualifying games will increase.

Thursday 28 August

3 games, odds 3.89 – loss = -1 point

Weekly total -1 point

Bank 52.34 points
