Big problems with the Betfair Video feed again this afternoon :(
I had a quick look on the BF forums just to check it was a common problem and not just me, and today someone mentioned that the Betdaq feed was working fine...
What Betdaq feed?
So I logged into Betdaq, and sure enough they have a video feed... :)
When Betfair was back up I did a side by side comparison and there's not much in it, BetDaq was about 1/2 second ahead of Betfair on the two races I checked.
But Betdaq only have ATR and not RUK, but as Ayr was abandoned it wasn't an issue today.
Just had a quick look at RUK site for live feed and it's £115 a year to subscribe, so now I'm making some more consistent profits I might sign up for that if the BF feed keeps being pants.
Had another easy day of uneventful trades, just under £20 so far, still a few races to go, stakes now up to £7.50.
Virtual bank is £150 (I've taken a ton out this week as there's no need to have more than £50 actually kept in BF)
Still cutting some trades too early when the prices don't match what I'm reading, but I guess it means I get caught less as well... But that's probably the thing I need to work on at the moment as there's some nice profits to be had for relatively small risk if I can get the balance right.
