Forex Net Trap

Day 59 – Tuesday 27th

For me the signal was just too flat and just too wavy to get involved, so no trade today.

This week I decided to try and use the e-book’s rules on the selections sent for myself. This was mainly done to see if I understood enough to come up with the same bets as the authors. I came up with different stake values for 2 of the bets and a No Bet for the MLS game.

I emailed the authors to ask why that would be seeing as I followed the FACT based rules to the letter and was very thorough in my assessment of the opinion based rule.

I received a very polite and thorough reply stating that it appeared that I was using the book correctly but that for the email service the authors use the rules as a basis but also apply more weight to the own research and opinion.

They explained that they wrote the book to be as easy to understand as possible for the lay-person and whilst I had stated all the fact based figures correctly, they added a layer of opinion and common sense (my wording, not theirs) on top.

I’m happy with that explanation. I have in the past ended trials of services early when it became apparent that a service was telling you one thing in their book and an entirely different thing in their emails, but I’m happy that this is not the case here.

Just for interest purposes, my reading of the rules for the 3 games selected would have been 100pt Overs on Haka (+£90), No Bet on Real Salt Lake and 100pt Under on Vaasa (-£100). So a loss of £10.

Betfair Millionaire

Day 3 – 25th July 2010

13:50 Carl: Earlwind WON @ 1.19

Todays P/L:  -£19 (£100 stakes)

Total P/L (since start):  -£163 (£100 stakes)

NB: All results are to Betfair SP and include 5% Betfair commision.

One of the rules of the system is to “Lay all odds-on horses only”. We have a potential area of grey when the ISP is odds on, but the BSP is evens or higher. I’ve noticed that this seems to happen quite a bit. As we are using BSP not ISP, for the purposes of this test I will ignore all horses when the BSP is evens or higher.

Black Dog Forex

Bit of a “Curate’s Egg” today and this system and my own trading followed as very similar pattern, I could just not get a trends to stick. By using the trade management rules I limited the loses, and did pick up a couple of 10-pip scalps. But a hard day for me.

Carbine Golf

Carbine Golf is a golf advisory service costing $50 per month.

There is no fanfare, no e-book, no nonsense; what you get is an email containing an excel spreadsheet that contains the tips, advice on a bookmaker and advice on the stakes.

I will try to place bets at the advised bookies, but some of them may be too exotic for my blood. The reason for this is to check out that the Dead heat rules are as stated.

I expect this blog to run for several weeks (perhaps the remainder of the PGA, EPGA and LPGA seasons?) as there won’t be daily bets.  I will use a £100 base stake and adjust this for the advised stake. For example, if the spreadsheet advises a stake of 3.9, then I will assess the bet result on staking £390.
