Now that's the Betfair "Cash out" button I do like :mrgreen:
Paying shareholder dividends at the first sniff of profit is so 21st century :).

Nice one though, make sure you treat your missus cos I bet you've been a trading bore for the last 18 months :D
No, just too much money in there that I don't need there... better off earning 0.1% interest in my bank :-)

Yeah, promised missus a new E-Bike she wants.

I haven't stopped by in a while and it seems that sometimes being stubborn as a goat isn't the worst thing in this business.
Congrats to goat on breaking the ice and to those who were instrumental in his success.

Surely many understood if they didn't already know that a critical requirement in this field is the ability to manipulate data.
I recommend Excel for those who have no programming knowledge. Excel is relatively easy to learn especially as there is a lot of online suport for any queries and (If there's anything you can't find on the internet these days) in a short time with some creativity that you already have if you have been drawn into this field you will be able to backtest almost the same as more sophisticated methods.

Yes totally agree, data is key, even the likes of Peter you frequently hear him mentioning about this and that "data" he has...

Don't worry, most likely what you've discovered will last for a period that makes it worth the effort.

Now the challenge is to constantly develop, because that's what the people you're taking money from are doing.
Your objective now is to stay one step ahead of them.

Both Dog and Horse bots going well, horses looking to be working nicely now:

Just being a bit nosey, but are you trading the races or value betting?

Depends what you mean by that, im guessing you mean do I hedge? Which is yes, or at least i try and close out at as close to 0ev as i can guess.

I just noticed on the dog bot that at just over 100 something happened and you suffered a big loss as it went down to around 75ish, so I thought maybe you weren't hedging.

Nevertheless it is going well, well done
