Monthly Trading Results – December 2018

+ 3.354 pts

During December, we reverted back to the original LTD2 system, which I am pleased to say has performed a lot better giving us a total profit for the month of 3.354 pts or £33.54 using £10 stakes.

In total we traded 56 matches with a total of 39 winners, a strike rate of 69.64%.

We found just one 0-0 draw out of 56 matches, which makes a real difference to the bank balance. This compares to November where we managed to find four.

In terms of return on investment, we had a return of 7.37% with total stakes of £455.00

I am expecting another positive month in January to get the bank moving in the right direction once again after November’s poor month.

My selection method is really starting to fire again after I made a number of major changes to my selection criteria. I am also using a new set of tools that are providing me with a wealth of data to help with my selections.

Monthly Trading Results – November 2018

November was a very poor month with a total loss of 5.508 pts.

During the month, we used a variation of LTD and Over 2.5 (LTD/O2.5) and it didn’t perform so well unfortunately. We have since reverted to the normal LTD2 system (see December’s results) which has performed much better.

Monthly Trading Results – October 2018

October was the start of my second run for the LTD2 system.

We actually started the new run and paid subscription service on the 29th September, but I will combine those couple of days into October’s results below.

In total we traded 63 games and won 39 of those giving us a win rate of 61.90%. Not too bad, but I would have preferred to see that at around 70%.

To breakdown the results, we had 10 larger wins, 29 small wins, 14 larger losses and 10 small losses.

We made a tiny loss on our first month overall of just 0.094 points using a starting bank of £500 and 2% stakes (£10). This means that the first month saw a loss of £0.94 and saw my bank reduced a fraction to £499.06. Your own figures may be slightly different.

In total I staked £603 and saw a return on investment (ROI) of -0.155%.

So pretty much scratch this month, which is never a bad thing and shows how resilient the system is considering we didn’t get off to a great start. I even managed to find six 0-0’s, which I have never managed to do in one month, so in hindsight, scratch was a good result.

Something very important to note is that we started the LTD2 system slightly differently than before in that we held back 0.5 pts to back over 2.5 goals around 20 minutes if the in-play stats were good enough.

On the 23rd of October, I decided to abolish this and just revert to the way I traded LTD2 previously, but with a slight twist in that we now stake 0.8 pts from kick-off and hold back 0.2 pts to use for insurance purposes late in the game if we had a loss at around 65 minutes.

The feedback I have received about this has been very positive, which I was glad to hear.

This approach has been working really well and since the 23rd we have made a steady profit of 3.3 points. Now the major leagues are in full flight, I am expecting some good profits over the next couple of months onwards.

I will monitor how successful the insurance element is over time. If it doesn’t give us a good return over the long term, then it may be more profitable to just stick with a straight one point LTD with no insurance.

In terms of goals, my selection method found a total of 171 goals with an average of 2.71 goals per game, which I think is very good.

All Trades: 39/63 – 61.90%

Monthly Trading Results – June 2018

+ 2.731 pts

June was a profitable month to help from my loss in May.

In total I traded just 12 matches and had a strike rate of 83.33% (10/12), which resulted in a profit of 2.731 pts. In monetary terms, this was a profit for me of £43.24 using an average stake of £15.83 with total stakes for the month of £190.

This meant that for the month I had an ROI (Return on Investment) of 22.75%. Not bad at all!!

I think the numbers for this month are a good lesson and show that if you are selective, patient and trade less, you can still make a decent profit, which over the course of the year can really mount up when you compound your profits.

Here are the raw figures.

Monthly P/L: +2.731 pts – +£43.24

Monthly Trading Results – May 2018

- 5.744 pts

Due to my personal work load, I will no longer be posting daily results to the site, but will instead just post my combined results and figures for each month.

My selections will always be posted to the site and sent out to my newsletter subscribers as normal.

May was without doubt my worst month of trading my LTD2/3 systems. I got off to a poor start to the month and due to a limited number of trades for the month in total (just 23) I was not able to recover this position.

In hindsight, I should have left those end of season games alone as they do have a tendency of throwing up unexpected results with teams not having too much to play for and players tired after a long season.

I’m confident that June will be a better month and that we can get back to winning ways now that the Scandinavian and other leagues are in full swing.

Here are my results for May.

Monthly Trading Results – February 2018

+ 4.139 pts

February was another good month for my lay the draw systems with a total profit of 4.139 pts or £46.87 added to the bank.

Considering that my first four trades of the month were all 1 pt losses (all in one day) it’s an excellent result. I have been trading for quite a while now and expect losses and to have 4/4 in one day is always a real blow to ones self esteem and can be a test of character for new traders.

I staked a total of £326 which meant that I had an overall return on investment of  or a 14.37%. Try getting that from your bank!!

I traded a total of 28 games which is a little lower than usual, but I have become more disciplined with my selection process and if I am in any doubt I just won’t trade games for the sake of it.

Here are my results.
