Well this is it, the LAST book I will be writing on sports trading.
MINDSET is the BIGGEST key to winning at trading and is the thing most people pay the least attention to.
I have tried my best to teach you everything there is to know about trading or betting on just about any sport. In the end, it is fairly simple, a price can only go one of two ways.
I have tried to teach people how to analyse a game, what to look for, how to read a racing market, whether to back or lay the team batting first due to the surface, and a thousand other things based on which way a market will go.
What I can’t control though, is what that person will do when they have a losing trade. How will they react? The first few seconds after a losing trade are crucial.
This book is an explanation of the mental approach I use to keep control of my mindset and attitude to losing trades. It also explains in detail how I look at trading overall after moving from life as a courier in the incredible harbour city of Sydney, to the remote countryside of south west Scotland and the changes I had to make to my attitude and outlook.
It become an eye opening experience, and certainly attitude changing to discover that the two careers are very closely aligned.
Over the past 10 years I have been able to clearly explain on my courses that you can just about relate any business or any financial situation to sports trading.
I have heard many tales from clients over the years about just how differently they approached their trading when compared to their normal job, and how much they were willing to risk on betting, when taking their partner out for dinner felt like a financial crash.
Why are people willing to risk £500 on a football game or laying a horse, yet if they are faced with buying something they need for the house for £50, they delay until it unavoidable and can cost even more?
The book explains what you do, and why you do it. The reasons for the decisions you make and how to alter that thinking.
Importantly it answers the question to the problem most people I come across have. Tell me, does this next sentence sound familiar?
You win 70% to 80% of your trades on racing (or sport) yet you are only breaking even, or actually still losing? Ever wondered why?
Clearly the losses are bigger than the wins. It is an issue everyone has. But do you know WHY you do it? Because everyone does it.
Do you want to know how to fix it?
Then you need to grab this book and it will get you sorted.
Let’s fix it.
