I do hope you have been able to join me throughout the week on Twitter @drtclub for coverage of the Rome Masters and an introduction to the world of tennis trading.
All in all, it has been a profitable week of tennis trading which is likely to be cut short today, as the deeper we move into a tennis tournament, the better the players and the tighter the matches.
I have put up some screenshots on Twitter. I hope you find them of interest.
I like my tennis trading to be simple. And, like you, the more I am exposed to the world of tennis trading, the more patterns I will find.
My goal eventually is to come up with a list of tennis strategies, much like I do in football, for certain eventualities in a tennis match.
Over the summer I will be putting together a series of articles which I will publish on the DRT Facebook page, specifically focussed on tennis, and how, by simplifying everything, we can make consistent profits.
One thing I have learned this week in the tennis is to look for ‘over-reactions’.
Here is an example. John Isner was playing Florian Mayer. Isner was the 1.4 odds favourite.
At the very beginning of the match, Mayer went into a 3-1 lead. The market went into meltdown. Panic Stations. Isner’s odds shot up to 2.3 if I remember rightly.
The waters were soon calmed as Isner’s service game kicked in. He eventually won the first set.
When you see over-reactions, it becomes a buy-and-sell game.
Buy Isner at 2.3. Sell off at lower odds once the panic has subsided and he is back on an even keel.
And that pretty much sums up my tennis trading. Tennis trading is as easy or as difficult as you want it to be.
You could trade support and resistance lines on the profit graph. You could trade service points even. Not me. Over-reactions are the way to go!
Last orders please…
The football season in Europe winds down this week and I will say a last farewell via the live chats on Saturday and Sunday. I must warn you, though, that it is dead-rubber city out there! There are a lot of teams with nothing to play for.
There is still plenty of trading action though in the Scandinavian leagues and some profitable trades to be had even this early in the season.
See you over the weekend.
