July 22nd – July 28th +$5,880.00
July has been a fantastic month. a 10% return on investment is 5 times my average. It also gives me that little psychological edge going into year 6. There is a nice buffer on my profit and loss graph and no matter how hard we try, our emotions are inextricably linked to short term results. This week was a little different, usually I make profit on Saturday followed by a loss on Sunday, but Sunday was great this week. It was the Monday morning that really hurt. A terrible MLB day took about $7,000 profit off me. Last week I mentioned about winning competitions, I won another one thanks to Betfair who are running a long term competition for VIP members. The prize was $2,000 and the overall winner gets $15,000. Now that I know what I need to bet to win, I would say I have a 50% chance of taking away the major prize.
Onto this weeks results and the AFL managed $6,600 profit. It is having another stellar season. But doing just as well is the NRL head to head betting. This weeks profit was $2,500 but I bet a lot less on this model. But since the move to a player based model, it has been doing exceptionally well. The MLB was the heart breaker, it had done really well all week, but that Monday night loss turned a great week into a losing one. $1,700 total loss for the week.
Dailyprofit members made more profit once again. I offered members a 15% discount for a yearly subscription and the take up has been amazing, so amazing that Paypal called to ask what was going on. The best feedback is people who trust in the service so much that they are more than happy to pay an entire year in advance. We did have one angry member on Monday morning, I never (and really don’t expect) to receive emails after winning days. Over the last few months there have been a heap more winning days than losing ones. But when there is a bad day, there is always someone who needs to email and ask what the go is. These people never last, they clearly have not set up any type of bank and if one bad day means they get upset (especially when that week showed a good profit even after the bad day) then betting will never work for them. I do feel for some of the tipsters I have bad mouthed over the years, so I thought I would show some love to a few who I think have their customers best interest at heart and try really hard to make them a profit. With the Soccer season coming up I’ll be rejoining TFA, Football Investor and I am still thinking about Football Elite. But all 3 people who run these services are good guys.
Just the 3 days left in July and a really great result for the month. In August we continue betting on the same sports and I am hoping for another steady month. As ever with my dumb lizard brain, when in a strong position I think to myself “Why can’t this last? just 12 months of results like this and that’s almost $500,000 profit”. Ahhh, I have to laugh at how dumb I am.
