Moving on.

I stopped trading last year after seeing the small profits disappear and not spending any time with the bot. My interest is in programming and as I moved from VBA to .NET and the wonders of Visual Studio, I was more interested in app development than raking over market data.

I decided to stop the bot and shut down the VPS, pointless spending money on something I no longer enjoyed.

Thanks to all those who visited and contributed to this site.

Happy trading and keep it fun ­čÖé

    1. Betfair trading is profitable when you know what you do and how.

      His big problem was the trading platform he chose for bot programming, so Excel and VBA.

      I do my own bots as well, here is my blog:


  1. Hi Setzer,

    It was a time thing. I was never that interested in the sports or betting, I enjoyed coding the bot and refining it. As I learnt more I drifted away from the bot and there isn’t enough time for everything.

    The market is still profitable, although it probably gets harder with more bots involved. The bot I ran was first used about 8 years ago, and after a couple years stopped. I then went back in with it about 3 years ago and it made some profit – basically by jumping in between trades to ‘nick a tick’. The strategy still works, but dialling in the triggers requires ongoing work.
