crash course feedback

by Shannon Reimer
Not a bad intro, however i would have liked to hear more information on the ladder screen and more on what kind of profit Im going to take. For instance, in an earlier video it showed a (0pound profit but the actual profit was one pound and then after hedging it becomes a few cents.. so what is the actual profit on that bet?? why put up 100 pound for a few cents in gain?? just not explained properly sorry. As for the ladder set up i would like to have a seen a more thorough explanation. I have watched a number of the bet angel tv youtube videos and still struggle to understand it and if i am going to spend a few hundred $ aud on the software and creating a bank i don't want to spend weeks learning how to use various layers of software and structures. So a little helpful but not alot as most of the info in these can be gained from google in a few minutes rather than 25min of video and a sign up. but i will keep moving forward. thanks

FOREX vs Sport betting. TIME vs MONEY.

by George Hristov
I am a nubie in sport trading. However I have been trading for years on the Forex market. I have never knew the possibilities to trade on sports. As I started to evaluate the pros and cons of sport trading I realized something amazing. Sport trading is not less riskier than Forex , but it is more valuable because You always win on one commodity we are always losing and this is TIME. You always know that in one hour max you will know the result and you could take the next step of your strategy. TIME is the only commodity we must value, money are socondary because you can win more if you are good but you cannot win more time regardless what skills you have! The course is awesome for nubies, on some topics it could be more comprehensive but it does what it should and it save you a lot of TIME searching for the info. Thank You Bet Angel!

Very simple to understand introduction into trading with Bet Angel/sports trading in general.

Klondike Trading

by Ronnie McKenna
Trading is like the gold-rush; the only people making money are those who sell the pans. In fairness to Peter these are extremely bright and shiny pans.

Learning Curve

by Richard Evans
After 6 Months "Betting" on Betfair (Failing Badly) the crash course opened my eyes to new ideas and taught me new things I never considered. I now see the concept of Backing & Laying (& Hedging) in a new light. Great Stuff.

Trading with your angel

by John Galvin
If you haven't done any trading on Betfair exchange before this course will show you the basics of how to win more lose less. It really is just a lesson in understanding how to go about trading if you're unsure of what to do.

Good and Poor or missing points

by Ken Riches
Good points:-) Overall the course is great, best I have seen. Would be nice if all the videos worked. Poor points:-( You have problems seeing where the cursor is pointing. The Cursor should be larger or better still have a yellow ring around it. The writing and Icons are small. It would be nice to see an area around the Cursor made larger just like Amazon have on their items when you slide your Cursor over a picture. Moving the cursor slower and telling the student where you are point on which part of the screen. Some of the videos would not work but came up with a tick to say you had viewed it. It was not possible to go back to it. At the end you had see ALL 100% of the course. Did report some of them when I found out how to do it. I am using a 32'' screen. Heaven help those with small screens. Added points:-( There is no 'Bank' so that you can visually see how you are progressing over time while in practice mode. You cannot see a total for the Day-Week-Month-Year period selection. Being able to select the value of your bank. Starting with a £100 or £200 bank. Seeing it in a box with large numbers like the [ Time to the start of Race ] icon. Being able to move it around like the [ Time to the start of Race ] icon and pinning it on the Orange bar. With those technical people who have designed and built this fantastic software it must be a simple thing to do.

Betfair Trading Crash Course is exactly what it states and it does give one the idea of what is all about
