Since the new PC charge was introduced my bot has started making money again...
Who knows, but the end of last month I started making a bit (after a slack 6 months) and I've now beaten my largest monthly profit just 18 days into this month. Not necessarily expecting it to last long, but not complaining.
From my PC statements I've still got about £5000 of profit before I start paying charges, but my total charges % is coming down, and based on recent %'s I'm not sure that I can do much to stop it dropping down under 10% in the long term. Luckily long term is still a long way away.
And it will take me a good few years to make £250K, so not worth worrying too much about it at the moment.
I've also made a few quid botting on Betdaq. Not a massive amount as I'm only using 50p stakes, but it looks like the liquidity is increasing enough to make some strategies profitable and if it keeps improving then might be an alternative.
The in Running trading... How's that going?
Well to be honest since I finished downloading my horse race data (a few weeks ago now) I haven't done anything with it.
I've had some problems that mean I can no longer eat wheat (or any grains at the moment) and also need to avoid dairy foods and chips, and so it has been a bit of a hassle getting used to a completely different diet.
I am starting to get into the habit of eating loads of fruit and salads (which is probably a good thing to do anyway), and luckily I'm still able to drink beer...
Also the weather has got a lot better, so mountain biking and sunbathing at the lake have taken priority over trading.
I will be back in Basel in about 2 weeks, and that is when I will finish my horse racing application and resume my In running trading, so hopefully some more interesting blog posts then.
This is where I'll be staying for a few days on the way back to Basel
