I did not email Ian. Upon rereading your first post in this topic I notice you said doing that was an option. I was like a lemon waiting for someone to contact me! Oops!

I understand Ian must be a very busy bloke and I don’t want to waste any of his valuable time. With that in mind, how do you suggest I frame my email? Will a simple link to this forum topic suffice and we’ll go from there? What kind detail is needed? I have a tendency to write too much sometimes!

I’d put topic as “Callum from the forum regarding Help”

What Ian will need to know, what systems you are using and how are you staking these? Be honest and open, and indicate where you have problems. Most people a) chase losses, b) hang on to trades they really should have closed or c) over stake. A few do all 3!!

I’ll remind Ian to keep an eye open for the email once you confirm that it has been sent.

Wow 48? That’s crazy!

I’ve got 10 systems, plus the LTD picks and HT CS picks and I’ve got about 6 bets this weekend.  Less is definitely more I think.

One other thing I think I might do differently to others is rather than lay to win a point I risk 1 point when laying, which I think helps smooth out the variance. So rather than laying  1pt for £100 @5.0 I’ll lay £25 to risk 1pt.  It then makes it equivalent to backing 1pt @ 1.25.

Hi Arthur,

I’ve now sent the email to Ian’s gmail address.

Thank you again.

 

I have emailed Ian to look out for your email.

Thanks for checking in Dio.

With regard to profit making, the signs have been better but it’s hard to say this early of course.

 

One thing I can say is that I feel a lot more comfortable with the systems I am now using (HT CS lays etc) – this is mainly due to the fact that they’re all provided as part of the FTS Ultimate service so I can verify that they are good to use.

I’m still following all the systems I was previously employing but they are on a watching brief until I can build confidence and a larger bank that allows me to set aside some points to test systems with real money.
