Still finding my feet with football. Bored senseless with the Preston match and scratched. Switched to Luton v Forest and 2 minutes before kick-off it was trading like a horse race. :)
I trade off team news an hour before the start of the match on big matches. You may get 10 ticks on a modest team change.

Thanks for the advice, I'll take a closer look on Saturday. It seems like it was overreactions quickly being countered turning the market into a yo-yo. :)

I don't mean to degrade your very neat charts but couldn't that information be held in a table?

It might just be me but I struggle to understand the point of a home/draw/away probability pie chart. All I can see is that 35% is slightly more than 34%, and that's only because they have text labels. :)

Sometimes a profit is more considerable than lots of charts

Amazing summary MF ... just curious, how many games do you trade at one time?

A picture is worth a thousand words Derek. I wouldn't look to see if one is 1% more or less than another ... I would look to see if one is substantially more than another.

Depends what you're painting. Paint each of your four livingroom walls black or white and you have a 4-bit number. ;)

What I'm saying is that for just 3 percentage figures that's a lot of wasted space on a spreadsheet. Great for a presentation but in the hustle and bustle of trading the data is all you need, more info on the sheet and less time switching tabs/sheets.
