THE BENEFITS OF FOOTBALL TRADING
Trading football markets offers many benefits over forex and financial trading.
Let’s start with information or research. If you are trading the share price on HSBC for example, you would buy it when you believe that the share price is set to go up due to good news, higher profit expectations on the quarter etc, the trouble is any information that you can read, watch or listen to is considerably delayed in reaching you when compared to the speed at which full time market traders, hedge funds and analysts have had that information, so you’re already at a disadvantage before you even begin.
The other downfall of financial day trading is that you need to be in front of your screen or trading terminal all day until either your trade out target has been met or your stop loss kicks in.
This can mean long days and of course if a share price plummets, it may pass right through your stop loss leaving you at a substantial loss.
If you look at the football markets with the same view as a share price you will have access to the same statistics and form as anyone one else, your information reaches you in real time, there are no delays, no disadvantage and of course during the game you’ll see or be alerted to a goal at the same time as anyone else.
The second plus of Football trading is that it is only a 90 minute trading window, you don’t have to be sat at your computer all day or keep an eye on the news for anything that may cause a drop in a share price. It’s basically a 90 minute stock market with all information reaching you at the same time as anyone else.
The third reason why the football markets are far simpler to master than financial ones is that if a share price drops you have no idea where it will stop, bad news may keep coming and the price may keep dropping. Whereas with football, the prices only change with certain events like a goal or a sending off. This means that a market will never bottom out and the markets are predictable even before kick off as no team can score three goals in one shot, they can only score one at a time (no matter how close together they come) this always gives you an option with your trade rather than sitting there hoping for a share price to stop falling.
