TAPS

TAPS supplies three main sets of selections. We have already seen the Systems Selections and the Warm Selections, so let’s turn our attention to the Best Recommended Selections.

Here is the complete list of bets from the trial period:

Date Time Course Horse Stake Odds Result P/L
24/01/2009 14:00 Lingfield Distinctly Game 5.00 12.00 Won 33.00
28/01/2009 16:25 Lingfield Herbert Crescent 5.00 17.00 Won 48.00
07/02/2009 15:10 Ayr Capal Dubh Alainn 5.00 13.00 Placed 3.50

31/03/2009 16:05 Folkestone Fuzzy Cat 5.00 15.00 Lost -5.00

Starting Bank: £500.00
Profit/Loss: £49.50
Final Bank: £549.50

Strike Rate: 27.3%
ROI: 90%

Finally a better result from the TAPS selections!  Bets are fairly few and far between, but they do seem to generate a profit to level stakes.

This concludes my trial of TAPS (I never did find time to look at the Lay Selections, nor the Sports bets), so I’ll be back in a couple of days with my final thoughts.

Thursday 2nd April

I’ve had to check the charts in retrospect for much of this week but should be back to live trading again next week.

On Thursday we got just the one winner on the EURUSD:

Friday 3rd April

A loser on the EURUSD:

A winner on the GBPUSD:

A winner on the EURGBP:

Then a loser:

A winner on the GBPUSD:


 
And another loser:

These trades do not take account of news items at all and so this week turned out pretty poor with only 10 pips profit.

Two losers and the new ‘stop after two losers’ rule came into effect, which was a shame as the next trade was a winner.

Daily Profit:-£300
Total Profit: £1180

Tuesday 31st March

Bad day with three losing trades in a row costing 45 pips. Neil has slightly changed one of the rules now with the stop at 24 method following monitoring of the markets by another member, and so now if we get two losing trades in a row we quit for the day losing just 30 pips because more often than not the third trade loses as well.

Daily Profit:-£450
Total Profit: £1140

Wednesday 1st April

Two winners early on today.

Daily Profit: £250
Total Profit: £1390
