First LIVE Event


Thanks to you all for your enthusiastic reaction to my last post. It's great to be welcomed back.
.
Okay, let's get this party started but before we do I'd like to make it clear how i plan to make this work.
.
The LIVE blog isn't meant to be a chat room. It's a place where you'll be able to observe my thoughts whilst I'm trading during an event. Occasionally, I'll look to interact (e.g. ask for your opinion/feedback) but a lot of the time you'll just see me posting what I think will happen, what I intend to do or anything else that's on my mind at the time.
.
Please also bear in mind that I'll only be able to reply to a certain amount of questions when an event is in-play as I'll be working at the same time! If you leave any comments I'll try my best to reply to as many as I can, but this will depend on the number of requests and on how busy I am. In a worst case scenario, I may suspend readers from posting any comments so that you're not left waiting for a reply that is unlikely to appear.
.
Whilst I'll also try to update the LIVE blog frequently I'm not committing to updating every couple of minutes. At busy times there could be substantial gaps in my posts but if this is likely then I'll try to let you know in advance. Try to think of it as a companion!
.
Lastly, I don't want to misguide you into thinking I'll be detailing every trade that I place. Sometimes the market moves so fast I have to react and this is more likely to happen in fast moving sports such as Rugby and Darts. Instead I'll be attempting to paint a more general picture of what's going on and hopefully you'll find something in there that can be of benefit!
.
Above all else, please don't hold me liable for any losses you may incur from following my actions. I make plenty of mistakes so if you listen to any of my observations then it has to be your decision as to whether you place any trades and this must be conducted at entirely your own risk.
.
Phew! That's about it, so let's see how this idea works out.
.
My first LIVE event will be........
.
MUNSTER v NORTHAMPTON
.
Kick off is at 8pm on Friday 22nd January, but coverage will start on my blog from 7.30pm.
.
I hope you can make it, and it'll be interesting to see if any other bloggers introduce this approach over the coming weeks.

Hi Mark,

Just stumbled on your blog via a link from TT Forum. Im a relative newbie just testing the water and building experience with min stakes trading. Also reading as much as I can so love this concept of a live trading blog. I'm interested in all sports but have a particular interest in rugby league - do you trade this?

Any best of luck tmw and i'll be watching with interest.

Thanks

Smudger

Interesting… I might try some of this on my blog, too. It’s quite interesting how you sometimes stop being innovative and just go for an accepted solution without actually trying to improve it… you make a couple of good points.

Hi Softech,

I was keen not to go back to the stuff I was doing before.....I just got bored of it and it was taking up too much time.

Let's see how this goes.

All the best,

Mark

Hey Mark - wouldn't Twitter be easier for this?

(and pretty sure the last bloke was subtlely spamming you, they've tried it with me too).

Hi Scott,

Nope, I don't think so. Would really like your feedback though so if you get chance this evening it'd be appreciated if you could pop in.

Cheers mate.

rare night out on the piss this evening (don't get many chances when you're a new dad), so afraid I'll miss it. But will keep an eye out for future sessions. Good luck.

No probs Scott - congrats on becoming a Dad!

I know the feeling of needing to make the most of those rare nights out.

All the best,

Mark

Many thanks Pete.

I'm starting to feel the pressure now as I'm not sure what my readers will be expecting. Just going to treat it as a bit of fun and see what comes of it.

All the best,

Mark
