As the title suggests, I've been dabbling in a few different areas lately, and today I have started trading(well only on a small scale).
What i've been doing is looking at the races where there is a high volume of betting near the off, and then placing a lay on a ~low odds horse, and then once that gets matched, setting a back for slighly higher odds. Sofar most of them have been successfully layed/backed, and the odd one which didnt lost(i would still have been in profit from the rest).
I'm trying to basically pick up the basics with small stakes, to see if in the long term this is viable, as I am a bit Pessimistic about lots of blogs people have regarding high returns, for a relative risk.
Can anyone reccomend any software, preferably if its got a demo function, where you could set parameters over a period of time, to evaluate the potential over a period of time?
