You will see that I continue to find lots of goals. A total of 28 for this weekend alone!

This is the first of many reports that I will be publishing where I will give you a detailed overview of the selections I have traded.
I won’t have time to do it for all of my selections but will pick the odd one or two each week.
Hopefully, it will give you a better insight into how I trade my selections and help develop your own trading skills.
As you will see, I am by no means perfect. I make mistakes. Sometimes I enter my trades a little too early, exit too late (or in some cases too early) and generally screw up from time to time. I am human after all!

With the Winter football leagues drawing to a close in May, I thought it would be good to give you the lowdown on what I believe to be some of the best leagues for football trading over the summer months.
During the winter months, I primarily focus on a number of leagues which are the English Premier League, Italian Serie A and the German Bundesliga. Another favourite of mine is the German Bundesliga 2.
The reason for this is that these are the leagues that year after year, consistently produce the most goals per game.

Since August, I’ve traded 395 matches as a part of my 5K Challenge.
If you don’t know, my aim is to turn a £500 bank into £5,000 using the O2.5 and BTTS markets.
With the winter leagues now done and dusted for the next few months, I thought it would be a good time to review my trades since August and see if I can gain any kind of insight.
Before I speak about all of the different stats and the conclusions I’ve come to, I first wanted to mention the main one which I really wanted to get a greater insight on.

Despite a somewhat patchy month in terms of results, I still managed to return a profit of +2.53 pts or £25.34 to my initial £10 one-point stakes.
As a result of my bank growth, I am now using stakes with a maximum liability of around £13, which is approximately 2% of my current bank.
Over the course of month 5 (12th December to 11th January), I traded a total of 67 games with 43 wins and 24 loses (64.17% strike rate).
In total, I staked £406.04 with an average stake of £6.06. This meant that my return or yield on my stakes was 6.24%.

In this post, I want to just take a moment to highlight an important aspect to trading football matches, which is how to maximise the value that we are getting.
If you follow me with my 5K Challenge you will know that I usually enter my trades by dripping my stakes after around 10 or 15 minutes.
The timing of my entry and the size stakes I use will very much depend on how the game is progressing and whether goals look likely.

So we got back on track this month with a profit of +5.83 pts or £58.37 to my current £10 stakes.
In total, I traded 56 games with an average stake of £8.12. Of the 56 trades, 37 were winners giving me a strike rate of 66.07%.
Although I use £10 stakes, they are not always fully matched as I drip my stakes in. If there is an early goal, I may only be partly matched on the full £10.
My total stakes were £455 with a return of £58.37 giving me a Yield for the month of 12.82%.

Following an excellent start to my 5K Challenge, in the second month, I recorded a 6.17 pt loss.
This brings my total P/L so far for the two months to +1.45 pts. So still in profit.
In total, I traded just 21 games, with only 10 winners and 11 losers.
Critically, out of my 11 losers, 10 were 1 point losses. I just couldn’t seem to find any late goals.
