Betfair Break To Egypt! Absolutely Scorching…


Evening all!

Apologies for the delay in updates! I’ve been quite tied up lately with so much going on. It’s been busy but enjoyable!

Last week, I had the pleasure of enjoying an all-inclusive 5-star break in Sharm el Sheik with the new Mrs., courtesy of my Betfair success this year. Without it, neither of us would have been able to go!

I’m glad we did, though, as it was the best holiday I’ve had yet. There was plenty to do, and even at this time of year (October), it was 35 degrees!

The break has certainly done me good, as I’ve come back to the markets feeling a little calmer. I think before I went, I was getting ahead of myself a little, still quite buzzed up with the weekly profits I’d been making in the summer months.

It’s quite hard to believe when you go from making small amounts to what I consider huge amounts in such a short space of time, and then having to take the bitter pill of calming down a bit again. It’s a very important change to make, though, or I’d just be throwing profits and potential profits away! It’s not just about winning but about not losing.

Sometimes I think it’s easily overlooked—throwing away ‘potential’ profit. You know, when you trade a race and make, say, £20 before pushing a bit harder to turn it into £30 or £40 before post time, and actually end up blowing £15 of the £20 you originally had… Making little tweaks and not getting involved in such situations can make a big difference to the overall day, particularly at this time of year, I feel. The markets are a little skittish with the change in seasons, maybe I just need to build on some alternative edges?

In the future, I’m sure I’ll look to this time of year to take some breaks away, although having more strings to my bow is definitely important. In the winter months, it’s quite possible for the racing to get snowed off. Hopefully it won’t, obviously, although trading other sports could be a good idea.

I’m glad I chose a week in October to go, as the markets have felt really poor to me lately. Personally, I would say they’re on par with January and February from what I remember earlier this year. That should all change though when the jumps season starts to set in properly. Before we know it, Christmas and the King George will be upon us!! Looking forward to that for sure.


Suppose the next thing is; Where to go next?!

  1. Hey Caan, Sounds like you had fab holls and i am glad as it is very inspiring to read its paid for from trading and how life seems good for you 🙂

  2. How the other half live eh? Good to hear you had a good time Caan. Makes me thirsty just looking at those sunny pics! Problem is it’ll probably take you another week of trading to get enough cash for the next holiday! Cheers – Dave.
