What Currency Should I Choose ?
Currently have :
Betfair - Aussie Dollars
Betfair - GB Pounds
Neteller - US Dollars
Moneybookers - GB Pounds
Visa - Aussie Dollars
Am wondering what currency to open my Betdaq account in ? Presuming I get to choose.
Clearly am going to be using Euros quite a deal, and my first target is Jaxx which they have already told me will be in Euros.
It seems that down the track, should I stick at this caper, I may be able to get a second MB'ers wallet which most likely would be most useful in $US.
Thanks in advance for any advice
I would wait for Dutchy's opinion on this, but all I would mention would be to take into consideration any banking fees you'd have to pay for conversion from AUD to EUR/GBP/USD and vice versa. Personally with my bank in GBP, I've just had to pay 4% on a £500 withdrawal which was a fairly hefty £20... you can underlay your bets to compensate for this, but in an ideal world you want to stick to your native currency as much as possible IF you have to pay for currency conversion.
As above, but if you already have a Betfair £s and $Aussie then for Betdaq go for Euros definitely. With any luck you will only have to fund it once anyway and can just leave a floating balance in it from then on.
Have a plan and stick to it
Thats a pretty good spread there, I only have Neteller in pounds and everything else in Aussie which means I have to do a lot of converting and know Im costing myself some $$ with conversions in and out and MBookers mainly.
I bust out 90% of the time (my strategy) and usually work my conversions to Aussie based on the rate I buy into, it can work against me if I dont bust out however, but can work for me especially with the $ being so volatile at the minute
More and more bookies are offering Aussie $ accounts which is good (VC Bet, intertops etc) but you have to make sure that the bonus is still good in aussie, a few Ive found your better off converting as the bonus is clearly better in pounds or euros.
Im looking at getting a Betdaq account, probably should have that in pounds or euros
Thanks for your advice lads
Betdaq is now open in Euros to add to my collection
Did my qualifying bet for Jaxx on the Liverpool/West Ham game, seemed to work well ... cash went to betfair ... waiting on free bet ... lost about 50 eurocents
so I'm off and running

Have a plan and stick to it

LOL stickied it?! Yeah pressure! Good luck mate I PM'ed you about diaries anyway maybe you'll see it, the gist of it was to maybe just keep your own personal diary on anything notable that happens just as a way to debrief at end of day... then if there's anything useful you could share on here that'd be awesome as well
