Nailed On System

15th March 2009

System A:

Bookmaker SP: -£10.00 (Total to date: -£31.29)
Betfair SP: -£10.00 (Total to date: -£26.39)
Number of winners: 0 (Total to date: 4)
Number of selections: 1 (Total to date: 11)

System B:

Bookmaker SP: £26.59 (Total to date: -£14.32)
Betfair SP: £26.32 (Total to date: -£8.03)
Number of winners: 2 (Total to date: 15)
Number of selections: 2 (Total to date: 29)

System A still continuing to drift downwards, but System B 2 for 2. Bookies SP beats Betfair again, only due to commission deductions.

TAPS

Apologies – I did warn everyone about my work commitments, which have prevented me from giving out regular updates on the TAPS service. As a result, there is a fair bit to catch-up on!

Over the next couple of days, I’ll post the current results for each of the different “systems”.

Today, I’ll look at the System Selection/Football Singles – which features bets on both horse racing and football. Staking is a ratcheted 7% of the bank.

Football Supertips

Hull v Newcastle   STAKE RETURNED

FC Koln v Monchengladbach +£95.00

Triestina v Brescia -£100

Another poor day and again there were bets that did not use the handicap that the book insists are best to use. Only one of the four tips used the handicap stated in the book and this time it was the only winner.

Nailed On System

System A:

Bookmaker SP: £6.67 (Total to date: -£21.29)
Betfair SP: £6.27 (Total to date: -£16.39)
Number of winners: 1 (Total to date: 4)
Number of selections: 1 (Total to date: 10)

System B:

Bookmaker SP: -£20.00 (Total to date: -£40.91)
Betfair SP: -£20.00 (Total to date: -£34.35)
Number of winners: 0 (Total to date: 13)
Number of selections: 2 (Total to date: 27)

Just for once a winner produced more at industry SP, which is unusual. However, the system needs more wins than losses, and at the moment, has yet to achieve a 50% strike rate.

Just one comment to make today, in that it is apparent when backing SP, Betfair cannot be matched at the bookies.

I watched the Gold Cup today, and had a few quid on Kauto Star to place. If you were able to watch the coverage on Channel 4 today, if it were possible for a horse to be as fit as a butchers dog, Kauto certainly did. Today was his day – what a horse! Racing produces horses that go down in history to be remembered forever – Red Rum, Desert Orchid, Arkle, Best Mate (to name but a few). Kauto now joins that list to go into the annals of time. I hope that Denman continues his recovery, and writes his name into the list too. He too was fantastic.

Friday 13th March

I got a loser this morning followed by a winner and then one more winner finishing just before 1pm.

So another 9 pips today giving £900 profit for the first week of the trial. I do like the way you are pretty much finished by lunchtime too. I am liking this at the moment and am pretty confident about the product as a whole.

I’ve been asked how I place my trades and I personally use IG Index and input a Stop Loss of 15 and a limit of 12, so I do actually win 12 pips or lose 15 on each trade. It’s a slightly different kettle of fish with Capital Spreads as you have to input the exact market level at which you want your stop and limit, so depending on where you get in on the trade you could win slightly more or less but apparently it evens itself out over time.

Day 5

Daily Profit: £90
Total Profit: £900

(Edit: I’ve just had the daily mail out from Neil and I got a trade wrong this morning. I missed a trade early on which I simply didn’t spot so instead I took the next one which I thought was the first qualifying trade. But because of the previous one I missed, it mean’t the one I took didn’t actually qualify and obviously I can’t say why without giving away one of the rules. So today should have been -18 instead of +9 pips.)

Friday 13th March

15 pips on the EURGBP this morning:

Then a loser on the GBPUSD:

And a winner on the EURGBP:

So we draw even on the day.

We had a cracking week last week with this scalping method with only one losing trade, but this week has been a different story with six losing trades knocking the profits back down.

Overall we made a profit of 15 pips on the week which is disappointing but I want to run with this scalping for another couple of weeks to get a better idea. Over the two weeks it’s still a very good profit but I was hoping that scalping would be a bit more consistent. Lets see how we do next week.
