First of all my apologies for the delay in this update unfortunately I got caught up in the Hurricane in Florida which delayed my return and then have had to catch up on work which has meant I have been away and did not have access to all my data to provide you with the latest figures.
Update on the Whale programme for August :
First let me provide you with the complete Whale results as provided by Cameron and Mark but please understand that it would be very near impossible to trade every trade due to the time difference across the markets. It does give an idea however depending where on the planet you are which markets you could realistically trade.
17 Trades – 8 successful – 2 break even and 7 loosing trades = -1.09%
4 Trades – 3 successful – 1 loosing trade = + 1.2%
9 Trades – 9 successful = +8.5%
1 Trade +0.25%
3 Trades – 2 successful – 1break even = -.26%
Total profit recorded for the month 8.61%
As you can see virtually all of August profit came from the Australian ASX with the other markets breaking even. The ASX opens at 01:00 BST and then 23:00 GMT so it is possible to trade this from the UK certainly during the winter months
As we live in the UK it is not possible to trade the Nikkei as the alerts that are sent arrive during the night so I do not trade this market.
Likewise not all of the trades given in the Whale programme enjoy the same hit rate and the list is provided for you so you can choose to undertake only the higher percentage trades depending on your attitude to risk.
We have been told that they do have a Whale Trader that makes a very healthy income just trading the FTSE and ASX once a month when there is a particular event that happens ( which for those of you who are familiar with PIE will have an idea what that is linked to ) and my experience thus far would believe that
So my experience for August is somewhat different to the official recorded returns. This is no surprise as I am still learning the trades and have chosen not to trade some of the types of trade.
You will also recall that Aug suffered a big loosing trade which is reflected in the official results but I got hit a little harder not only in the bank but in confidence. Cameron and Mark did call me and we had a conversation regarding that trade and my attitude regarding the way forward so I was impressed by that response.
That trade was an event never seen before and was not typical nor are the circumstances likely to repeat themselves .
My results for August
6 Trades – 4 Successful – 2 loosing = -1.5%
3 Trades – 2 Successful – 1 loosing = + 0.2%
1 Trade +1.6%
1 Trade +0.7%
Total Return 0.3%
Not a huge return for the month but there are a number of factors, firstly and most importantly I am still learning how best to make this work for me, what trades I feel comfortable doing and the level of risk I am prepared to accept.
My results are mostly based on 1% risk per trade but that is not always possible and there are times when you have to accept more risk.
September is already looking far more profitable with returns up above 5% as it stands currently.
I am becoming more familiar with the trades, which ones I want to do and starting to take on a little more risk as I am now trading with some of my profit as opposed to my starting bank.
July Return 3.95%
Aug Return 0.30%
Return over the first two months 4.25% which I think is pretty good. This has not been easy but I am now getting to grips with how this is to work best for me and the returns are starting to reflect that so I hope to report back on healthier returns over the next few months
I know there are some of you thinking about joining the programme and I believe that the price is going up in the next few days so if you have any questions I will do my best to answer them quickly over the weekend for you
I’m going to be recording results for three of the four services offered by the Sports Predictor stable. The fourth (Horses) will be covered by one of my fellow bloggers. My trial period began in the middle of last week, so I only have one week’s worth of results so far.
I’ll introduce all three in this post, ongoing updates will be provided separately as we go along.
They cover Football, Golf and NFL.
Football is my main sporting love (although Rugby League is a growing passion but lousy for betting on). Golf is a sport that I completely ignore, until I accidentally see a couple of minutes and then I get hooked for the rest of the day. NFL isn’t my faourite, I do watch a game most weekends & have been to a Wembley game, but I prefer sports that offer more than 11 minutes of action per 3 hour “Event”.
Having said all that, as long as there’s sport to watch and a few bob to be made, it’ll do for me. Except Tennis, I do have my limits.
All services supply selections by email, have Apple/Android Apps and website members areas to keep you up to date. At the moment, the Apps are not fully working but efforts are being made to get them fully functional as soon as possible. The emails are perfectly satisfactory and lay out exactly what bets are to be placed and where the best prices are currently available.
All services recommend a 100 point starting bank.
All services offer to double your membership free of charge if they do not make a profit during your membership period, this only applies to subscription periods of 90 days or more.
First up we have their Football Service
Subscription costs £17 per month, with a discounted 1 year subscription also available. Selections are provided by a tipster named Josh.
Selections have, so far, been received a few days in advance of the games. All bets have been straight Home/Away win affairs. We have had 6 or 7 bets per day over the weekends (I have this weekends bets already) with a few midweek selections added on the day of the game. All prices quoted were realistic and generally still available when I checked
Way too early for any opinion to be made but, for info only, a loss of around 5 points was made on the first week. Prices averaged out at around 2.35
Subscription costs £77 per month with Whole Season option available for £277. Selections are provided by a tipster named Scott.
An email is sent on a Wednesday to give a write up for any selections made for the Thursday Night game, I have also had a few early weekend selections given in this midweek email. The main email is then received later in the week. We have had both Handicap and Over/Under type bets. All prices were easily attainable or beatable at the time. Rather strangely, the bets were nearly all advised at the same price, 1.91. I thought this some sort of error at first but, on checking, they were in fact correct and just looked odd when seen written down.
Last weekend’s bets were remarkably good and a profit of 9 points was made.
Subscription costs £97 per month, with 3 Months available for £277 and a full 12 months costs £977. Selections are made by a panel of 15 golf betting experts.
Because golf takes place over a number of days, emails are sent from Wednesday onwards. The first email will give pre-tournament bets to be placed, with later emails setting out what action to take as the field is whittled down to the final contenders over the four day period. So far, bets have been a mix of Outright Win bets, Each Way bets and then various sub markets like Top 10 Finish, Top European Player etc.Prices quoted were available or beatable whenever I checked. Although it sounds a little confusing to cover so many markets from different tournament, the emails are very clearly laid out and it’s a doddle to find the bets on Oddschecker.
Last weekend was very busy for this service with 16 bets placed across 5 different tournaments. As you would expect, some of the pre tournament prices are very big and will obviously have a poor strike rate but should hopefully come into their own when you hit the odd winner. The service is designed to chug along making profits from the E/W bets and the Top 10 type bets and then get a boost from the occasional biggie.
We didn’t have a very successful first week as we only landed 1 Each Way bet from our selections, a loss of around 10 points was recorded.
As mentioned at the top of this post, I’ll be reporting on each service individually as we go along from now on. But for now, you can see more information about each service by clicking the links below:

I’m exactly three months into this trial now and here are the stats:
Contract cost: BTC 0.100737
Hash Rate: 1.3 TH/s
Start Date: 20 Jun 2017
Earnings: BTC 0.02905144
As you can see, I’ve been paid almost 29% of the contract cost so far in mining earnings but I’m not into profit territory until I’ve been paid at least BTC 0.101 to cover the contract costs and show a profit.
As mining difficulty increases, the daily mining earnings decrease so it will be interesting to see just how long it takes for this to get into profit, or if it gets into profit at all.
I’ll do another update in three months time to see where we are.
In last weeks live webinar for Angel Business Club members, it was announced that the gold salvage project will start (salvage ship sets sail) in the next few weeks i.e. October. This is brilliant news as it was expected that operations would start in the Caribbean first in December.
This has come about because the company providing the salvage ship (Atlantic Marine) has said that they won’t be charging on any days when the sea is too rough to conduct any actual salvage operations. Fingers crossed we could be looking at the first gold coming up from the sea bed within 4-6 weeks and soon after that we could be receiving some very handsome dividend payouts to shareholders.
If you haven’t got your shares yet but are still interested in getting involved then this is probably your final call.
Britannia’s Gold share offer closes in 8 days on 30th Sept. The salvage operation begins in early October.
According to the legal documents filed there is a possibility we are talking well over 100 fold return on investment, potentially, within the next 36 months. This is genuinely a once in a lifetime investment opportunity. That said, there is zero guarantee of any returns so do NOT invest anything you cannot afford to lose.
Sorry, this offer is only open to residents of Europe.
So, if you fancy getting your hands on a share of the £billions of gold that could be recovered over the next few months and beyond, then here’s what you need to do:
1) Register for a free account with the Angel Business Club HERE
2) Login to your Angel Business Club back office and click on “information” and “crowd funding” which will take you to the AngelEQT section.
3) Click on “investment opportunities” and “more information” on the Britannia’s Gold page. Then click on “Engage to fund” and confirm the details and click “submit”.
4) Click on “pledge” and confirm how much you wish to invest. Each share is £1,000. There are a maximum of 9,000 shares available. Once the fundraising closes on 30th Sept, there will no longer be any more chance to invest in this project
5) Once you have made your pledge, there is nothing else to do. After Sept 30th you will receive an email confirming the details of your pledge and you will have until 14th October to get the funds transferred.
6) Sit back and wait for the potentially huge regular dividends to be paid to you over the coming months and years.

I’m delighted to say that I’m still very keen on this service.
We had seven winners from just eight bets on Saturday. That really is very good tipping as they were not all short odds-on jobs either, some were short-ish but we also had wins at 2.7 and 3.5.
As stated in my intro post a couple of weeks ago, you do need to act reasonably quickly to get the prices quoted in the emails. They are definitely there but they shift quickly once the money gets put down on these lesser tipped markets. That’s why it’s such a good idea that they include their Value Price for each tip, you know where the line in the sand is.
We’re now 23.6 points up, achieving a strike rate of 61% with average odds of around 2.7
They still have the money back guarantee for your first month’s subs available, so I think it’s probably a no brainer to get signed up & paper trade the first month. If it’s good, you’ve secured your place and can carry on, if it’s not for you then you can get your subs back & it’s not cost you a penny.

If you want to learn how to make money out of BitCoin then this is for you. At just £37 this includes £20 of free Bitcoin Cash:
“I have been trading markets since 1985 and have experienced pretty much everything BUT I have never come across anything with the money creating possibilities of Bitcoin and the other cryptos.
Hardly a day goes by without some event occurring that confounds my expectations.
I only started in November 2016 and I did not even directly invest in any crypto. My expectation was that I should double my money each year thus building up to $1m at some point in year 9, which would have been great!
However within 9 months I have already achieved three doubles and am half way to my fourth double!
So at this rate I will hit $1m somewhere in year 3!”

Duncan Logan the CEO of Rocketspace who nurtured the likes of Uber, Spotify and Hootsuite is publicly tweeting and posting about his intention to buy in to Electroneum as it is something entirely new.
If you’re interested in speculating on cryptocurrencies then this could potentially be the best investment you make in the field. Launched via an Initial Coin Offering last Thursday, it will be the most user-friendly cryptocurrency in the world with wallet management and coin mining all possible on a mobile app.
Richard Ells, founder of Electroneum and experienced tech entrepreneur, said:
“I don’t know if you’ve ever tried buying any Bitcoin, but it’s really hard to do! I realized that what the world needs is a cryptocurrency that is genuinely easy to access and use. We’ve developed Electroneum with the ordinary mobile user in mind.”
It is incredibly easy to manage and even mine on a mobile app. That means it’s capable of becoming the new, easy, secure way of making instant transactions from your phone – from buying mobile games, to sending money to friends, to betting on live sports. The ease of use and availability of Electroneum opens up an enormous market of 2.2 billion smartphone users.
Electroneum makes it easy to access and use a super secure cryptocurrency that has all the benefits of Bitcoin and more, plus they’ve developed an offline wallet that is literally impossible to hack.
The British company is currently raising funds to complete the launch of the currency, and the coin itself is available for purchase from now with a 50% bonus on any purchases ending on Thursday.

Easy Forex Profits is a Forex trading service that is completely automated using a free trade mirror service, via FX Blue. The sender runs an EA which broadcasts trading activity. Subscribers run a copier EA which receives the signals and automatically mirrors the sender’s trades. Each subscriber has full control over risk settings and all other trading activity, via the parameters in the receiver EA.
The advantage of this is that, once set up, there is literally nothing left to do and you can leave it running 24/7 placing trades on the FX markets. It also means there are no additional subscriptions to trade copier services required, so you just pay for the signals which are currently £50/month.
The Easy Forex Profits website is rather basic and suggests the vendor is actually a trader rather than a marketer, and the spelling/grammar supports this hypothesis. In fact I found myself reading it in an east European accent.
Still, what matters are the results and so far it seems to be going ok.
I started receiving the signals at the beginning of August, but due to some issues I had with my VPS (I overloaded it by running far too many applications) I ended up upgrading and starting afresh mid August. This was unfortunate as I missed out on some nice winners but it’s been running fine since then.
I’ve set my risk to 2% which means that on each trade it sets the lot size according to the size of the stop, only risking 2% of my bank an any one trade.
I’m using a £1000 bank and so my lot sizes tend to be between 5p and 15p a pip at the moment, so really low risk. I had my first trade successfully mirrored on 17th August and since then I’ve had 20 trades with 11 winners and 9 losers and a profit to date of £2.28.
Had I got on all the trades in August I would have made 3.45% so it’s an encouraging start. They also proof their results on myfxbook so it’s completely transparent.

2 Minute trader is a horse Racing arbitrage system (you back and lay the same horse) that costs £79.96 per month. During the evening before racing you get selections for the next day and the odds you should try to get, and odds below which you should not bet. You have to be reasonably quick to get the best odds, and you are recommended to setup email alerts on a smartphone, advice you’d do well to heed.
At some point, before the race starts, you lay the bet off. The service provides a calculator so you can calculate your stakes.
In 5 weeks, the service made a profit of 7.72 points, £386.11 at £50 per bet. NOTE that £50 is NOT your risk (you wont lose this full amount unless you fail to get the lay on!), you are going to be laying this off, so £50 bet is a sensible bet size, even off smaller banks. You do need to deduct the subs, but this is still a healthy profit.
Further, I have been somewhat cruel, when price drifted I simply recorded the odds I took the evening before and the Betfair odds I got. However, if the bookie bet had been placed with a BOG bookie, then I’d have got a higher SP and the loss I recorded would have been very much reduced; therefore the profit I have recorded is too low.
There is another complication, the Betfair odds I get may not be the same as the odds that you get, so the profit I make won’t be the same as yours. I am a Gruss Betting Assistant user, and I set this up to place the lay bet at 10 minutes before the scheduled off. You cannot miss this lay bet, so you need to consider how you are going to be able to place this bet.
The other elephant in the room is this uses Bookmakers, and is horse racing. The manual does contain some sensible looking advice on how to keep you accounts open for as long as possible.
I am more than happy to approve this. Decent profit and easy to implement once you get the hang of it.

I also recorded the results using bets at 5% of the bank at the start of the day. So a £1000 bank meant my initial bet was £50. I did ratchet, so even if I had a losing day I did not reduce the size of the bet. Doing this and stopping at a maximum bet of £100 (bigger than this risks flagging your account with the bookmaker) I doubled my bank. Worth thinking about some simple compounding. My records show that I closed at £2061, but, remember this is recording drifting horses using the initial odds not BOG odds, so even this figure is on the low side.
A bit of an up and down start for this service. Or rather, that should be down and up.
We got off to a pretty poor start and were 13 points down at one point, it’s made a good recovery since then.
We’re now pretty much where we started, a total of £3 down on the £1000 starting bank.
All the admin side of it seems fine, as you would expect from the reputation of their main service.

I’ve been mining Ethereum on this cloud mining platform for two months now and it’s been paying out daily. To remind you, I bought two years of hashing power for $300 which at the time was worth 1.06 ETH so I need to mine more than 1.06 ETH in the two years for this to prove profitable.
The mining earnings are added to your account on a daily basis and whenever the balance goes over a certain level it gets paid automatically into your personal ETH wallet.
On 23rd August it automatically paid 0.15185324 ETH to my wallet so, I need to get another 0.9 ETH to break even and it’ll be all profit after that.
Everything works automatically without any input from me. I’ll do another update when I get my next payment.
