Have just watched this show on Iplayer.
Its ok, but, was interesting from a few standpoints.
Firstly, the traders featured, were declaring expected daily win rates, of maybe $1-2k. I thought this was low, but leave that aside for a moment.
Its does highlight, that most successfull traders, don't often have home run wins, where they win a gazillion. Instead, they tend to repeat, smallish type wins. Obviously, the smaller wins have less risk, and add up.
This is a methodology I tend to repeat in my sports trading. I do have home runs, but, rarely lose .. at least lose a lot .. and, it does add up.
If u get a chance, read the 'Wizard' books, by Jack Schwager
They are interviews from super traders, and their methodologies are worth reading.
It was also apparent traders feel they can now trade from home, on, a not uneven playing field, and if u search youtube, u will find many traders, showing videos of how they trade.
I have often wondered what 20 hours of a successful sports traders videos would be worth .. probably quite a lot, but, its hard to make people think its worth it (if they are gonna pay, for the privaledge).
I like the route, Mark Iversen has taken with CricIntel.
By trying to get a different revenue stream, it protects poor trading periods, and maybe brings more people to the market.
I am not sure, the market is big enough .. I hope it is .. and for now, am buying the info packs.
