Successful Strategies
« on: Mon, 31 July, 2017, 17:36 »
I was just wondering how many people on here have discovered a successful, long term, triggered strategy.

I have been using MF for 10 years now and many times I have come close, or thought I had cracked it......but finally I have found something that works on the horses 😀😀

We see lots of posts about people trying but not many success stories.

So how your luck eh??

Hi Wehey,

I'm glad you have found something that works for you.

As you probably know being a long-term bettor, online exchange users tend to either keep silence about what has earned them profit or bash each other's strategies as "inconsistent" or "failing in the long term".

I am currently experimenting with a bit of neural network that I'm writing to figure out the size of each next bet depending on the previous win/lose history, and I find it fun, although I wouldn't put all my money on it.

I'm sure other users have something to share too, but I'm not so sure they are willing to do so.

Hi Oxa,
Thanks for sharing.
I'm not looking for info on particular strategies, just interested in how everyone's getting on 😀

Noticed this thread and decided to post my thoughts:
I have been trying with automation on and off for 10 years.Tried various software types (even had a coder develop for me once-for more money than I care to think about :) ) and this has given me a good feel (and hard lessons) for strengths and weaknesses for the subscription based software iterations out there. I love the challenge of automation but my word it is hard :o . I would love to have more time to learn to code myself but in the absence of that (especially difficult in in middle age) MF Pro is certainly the most versatile software I have found. I think that the line between success and failure is very fine indeed and I probably have thrown systems away over the years that potentially could have been profitable.The last year or two I have focused on the manual side more which ironically has given me a better understanding of what to try in automation.I have started to get a few +10% (on stake) returns on a few manual trades here and there and this has been immensely satisfying. Also,learning about yourself when facing a red screen is one of the most interesting opportunities for self awareness that I think one can experience. Cutting losses and letting profits run is an art form but that is a very big key as most of the Pro's will tell you. I think I have found an automated punting system that could be successful (over the last few months anyway) but time will tell. I find that automated trading pattern , for me anyway, is usually small win -small win- small win-big loss. This is usually due, in part, to those unforeseen circumstances that happen when your target market range is too wide. If I get time, I will look to refine areas of opportunity to a much smaller domain. This is only my experience and surely differs from a lot of others but this game is a good challenge and one I have thoroughly enjoyed-thanks to the welldone team for providing me with the opportunity to pursue the holy grail :) All the best to you all.

Well said mcgoo!
Ditto to "learning about yourself when facing a red screen is one of the most interesting opportunities for self awareness that I think one can experience".

Sorry for my lack of responses to pm's about this thread.
For some reason I haven't been getting email notifications..

Well it's been 10 months since I started the thread and I'm please to say that it's still working well.

It had a bit of a stumble around September last year and I had to do some tweaking to the triggers, but after a month it started to pick up again and has been steaming ahead ever since.

Hello guys!

This is a great discussion! I think Mcgoo touched in a very important point about this whole thing called sports trading: the possibility to grow the level of your consciousness as human being. 

Wehey, are you interested in share your strategy with us?

im part time  - long time battler too.
I started in forex trading which is the same beast just a different flavor.

i like auto trading in principle as unless the hours of manual trading pays more than my day job i dont see the point.
Triggered betting is the holy grail if we can find sustained results .

with forex. i manual traded and wrote/ bisected and sold bots also. i found what worked for a period, weeks / years
i imaging the same thing happens in this realm..

for instance lay pro 88 - possibly when it was thought up it hit 88% and the system made a profit. then perhaps the market changes - 3rd favs won slightly more, the average odds crept up??? then the margin is gone and people chase the next holy grail.

im glad some make it and im sure its only after long periods of reviewing systems / results and throw in a touch of luck to find a long term profitable edge.

if anyone reads this is i suggest "the staking machine" to evaluate potential systems. i have no affiliation i just think with market feeder its all you need.

---------
a thought on martingale. (i can hear the sneering)
1. take a system with a one off worst loosing streak of under 10.
2. look to recover all losses since the last win in the next bet. (sound familiar)
why not bet to a small % so even after 10x compounding losses the bank can sustain the next bet? eg a 1% liability

negatives:
long runs happen - sure, work backwards from the WORST case of losses - "ELS", to make sure the 11th bet can be made.
low % bets equal low return on banks - yes but amusing the bank can always handle the max run of losses there will always be a profit?

positives:
this system (staking) should be able to be triggered so return isn't reflective of hours committed.
the chosen system isnt important

if banks pays 3% PA on deposits or a mortgage loan may pay 8%, anything better here is good.
10% ROI p/a is 0.83% per month, surly we can produce 5% p/m return which equate to a good investment?

thoughts?
