Here are the numbers for 2017 –
Number of markets traded – 28,006
Number of bets settled – 167,836
Traded volume – £852,690.97
Profit and loss – £424.77
Return on traded volume – 0.058%
I haven’t really been bothered with it for a few months and am actually surprised with the final figures (DIY and family have had my time of late). I check in on the VPS now and again and was seeing the past few months not doing very well. The totals for 2017 are propped up by a strong start to the year (see image at bottom).
A little dig in to the numbers we can see that more markets were traded than in 2016 – up 1231 – I did run in other events for a couple of months or so, which accounts for about the difference. Number of bets settled were down. Traded volume was down overall by around £150,000. Average traded per settled bet dropped from £5.27 to £5.08. Return dropped to 0.050% from 0.069% with a profit for the year of £424.77. (Taking into account the costs of the bot, currently at £21/month, gives a real profit of £172.77 and a real return on traded volume of 0.020%.)
BIG FIGURE – Traded volume since restart in 2015 is –
That’s a multi-million pound botting operation right there!
I spend more time thinking of coding than actually doing. I sat down to do some tonight but ended up sorting results and doing this post. We’ll have to see what I get up to this year but I would like to advance the current bot.
To my fellow bottors – I hope you all profit from your hard work, happy 2018.
