Pre match trading at the World Cup

23/06/2014 | By | Reply More

You could be forgiven for thinking that trading on football is all about somehow anticipating something that’s going to happen in play. But if you follow my tweets you will see I’ve been banging some decent totals before the off.

I explained this in a previous post, but it’s worth noting again that if you are prepared to put the effort in and have a bit of patience, it’s perfectly possible to trade before the off successfully. I’ll be covering again how I do this on my next course. If you have attended a previous course and are not sure what I’m doing, drop me an email.

You may want to have a look at this spreadsheet¬†which links into Bet Angel. This will give you a better idea of how markets interact when one or the other is being backed. It should improve your understanding of this. I’ll see if I can modify this a bit more to make it more specific to pre-match trading.

This is slow motion trading though, so it can be boring. But the effort is often worth it. Give it a try before the world cup ends. The world cup markets are wonderfully liquid and your best chance to pull this off with the lowest risk.

I left a good job in the consumer technology industry to go a trade on Betfair for a living way back in June 2000. I've been here ever since pushing very boundaries of what's possible on betting exchanges and loved every minute of it.
