Not had a huge amount of time to trade this last week although the markets seemed alot better on wednesday when i did get the chance which is good news!!
So i’ve never been a massive fan of the X Factor although always been subjected to watching it through my selection of the finer sex, occasionally i’d look at the odds but never reall attempted to trade it properly.
Tonight i took the leap, not with outrageous stakes but i had a go none the less. During the course of the show i think i learnt alot and will be better prepared next week if im not out, it’s very different to trading the horses but an eye opener for sure. I dont suppose ill make a huge amount but i suppose over the coming weeks it could become of interest by the time the show finishes.
Jahmene had a bit of a cracker by all accounts and i was rather shocked to see him shorten into favorite at one point, for weeks ive been saying to friends Ella is way too short so early on, particularly at odds on! despite feeling so strong i never put my money where my mouth is! Turns out that could of been a profitable exercise!!…. Anyway this week i lost £4, hardly an issue.
Prior to the show tonight i way eyeing up James Arthur as i thought he was priced a little high at 6.0, after Jahmene’s performance and Ella’s strength in the market it’s pumped it up even more.
I’m no X Factor expert but i think 7.8 is far too high for James chance, even if he’s not to win i think the chance of his price shortening is far superior to it inflating.
A cheeky £50 in at 7.8 to start me it is (before someone points it out i fed another tenner in after the screenshot)…….. guess we’ll just have to see how this pan’s out!
