Trading Diary – Automated Trading Update
Members of the Goal Hunter Football Trading Community, receive regular updates from me on my own trading as part of our 12-month trading challenge.
The 12-month trading challenge uses the Goal Hunter football trading method to create a realistic trading plan to take you from zero to becoming a successful football trader within 12 months. It's free as part of a Goal Hunter membership.
- It allows you to start with even a moderate initial trading bank
- Shows you how to structure your betting bank and how much to invest with each trade
- Sets realistic and achievable daily targets for your trading – suiting even the most time-poor of us
- Shows you how to grow your bank, month on month, in the most optimal way
- Gives you a clear action plan for the whole 12 months
- Helps you ensure discipline and focus as you embark on your football trading career
Every day or two, I share with Goal Hunter members my exact trades and any insights or learnings that accompany them. I'm also following the exact trade growth plan, mentioned above, that members are using so that they can follow along and compare their progress to mine (but it's not a competition! the only progress that matters is your own).
Following this, I have decided to share an abridged version of these updates here on the blog each week so others can learn more about football trading, before deciding on whether to join Goal Hunter.
We officially started the trading challenge on the 20th of May. You can read previous editions of the trading diary here.
Automated Trading – Is It Possible?
It was great to see how much interest there was in my article last week about the biggest issue with trading and whether it is possible to automate your trading.
There were lots of comments on the post and via our support desk and it was great to hear the enthusiasm, as well as getting to talk to many of you about your trading progress, plans and hopes for the future.
We have continued to test and refine our three key trading models utilising the automated trading strategies that I have developed over the last few months.
Monday 12th August – Saturday 17th August
Friday ended being a no bet day as my server decided to re-start itself without warning which was more than a little frustrating. So in total, the below includes five trading days from last week (As I write this, Sunday's results are not available yet)
Match Odds Trading
– 28 trades
– 19 profitable trades (68%)
– Profit = + 5.34 points
First Half Trading
– 16 trades
– 1 losing trade (94%)
– Profit = + 20.9 points profit
Over / Under Trading
I've been doing some minor tweaks to this strategy over the last week. Ran it properly for the first time on Saturday and it had 9 trades, 8 successful (88%) for a 2.5 point profit.
As I write this, it's up a further two points on Sunday morning.
All in all, really encouraging results. I'm intending to do a full, uninterrupted, auto trade this coming week and we'll share the results again next week.
How to access the automated trading models
Understandably we have had a number of messages asking how and when you can get access to the automated strategy files and my personal trading selections.
Our current thinking is to launch this in the first or second week of September, probably during the International break.
There is a couple of things we need to work on before then though.
The first of which is putting together all the training and support materials to make it as easy as possible for members to implement and start using the automated trades.
The other consideration, and it is a really important one, is whether we look to limit access to this.
The reason for this is market liquidity and protecting returns for myself and for the members that join us.
Often, the markets I am trading have very good liquidity but it is a different situation when you perhaps have 50, 100 or 150+ people all trying to place a trade at the same time.
So, we are giving serious consideration to limiting this to a small exclusive group, to begin with, and make it very tailored to each individual, along with providing direct access to me during the trades.
Naturally, if we do that, it would require a higher price point which may not suit everyone but for the right people, it will provide tremendous value and a great opportunity.
We've been canvassing existing Goal Hunter members to get their views on this, which has been incredibly useful. We'd love to hear your views on this as well, so feel free to leave your comments below or contact me via the support desk.
In other news
We're re-launching our football win bets service later this week and we could not be more excited about this.
We've spent the summer analysing and updating our models and the profit potential is looking really, really healthy.
In our testing this weekend we had four winners from six, including Bilbao to beat Barcelona at 5/1 and returned 3 points profit overall from just six bets.
We'll be sharing more details on this later this week, so keep an eye out for our emails. What I can tell you is that it is easily going to be our biggest giveaway that we have ever done. There is going to be so much value built into this that we'll almost be giving YOU money to sign up 🙂
We'll be back with our next trading update next week. Remember to let us know your views in the comments or via the support desk, on whether we should go down the exclusive route for the automated trading models.
All the best
