Sport without fans, players opting out and teams having to play without key players who may be in quarantine. Pro Traders have had to change the way we approach certain trading strategies, in football we suddenly saw far fewer goals in first halves of games.But...Now we have a clear path to normality.

One thing that upsets me is when somebody loses money on a betting or trading strategy.It's never nice to hear that someone has lost money, especially in an industry where we know it is possible to make great long terms gains on your financial investments by trading. What is even worse is how most of the time this could have easily been avoided.The number one most common mistake traders make is that they do not test a strategy first before putting money on it.It doesn't matter if it is your own sports trading strategy or a system developed by somebody else, you must always test it without using real money first!

One of the questions I get asked all of the time is ‘Should I join a paid tipping service?’Here at Betfair Trading Community we are not a tipping service, we teach people to trade for themselves,so I always recoil when I hear this question as I know how this usually turns out.I cannot tell you how often I have heard this follow up phrase, ‘ I used to be a member of a paid tipping service,I lost a lot of money and then they just disappeared!’Ouch!If you have not had the pleasure or perhaps (as is more often the case) the pain of following one then hopefully this article will help you avoid them.

One of the great privileges I have as someone who looks after a community of Betfair traders is that I get to see sports trading from all angles.People of all ages (above 18!), shapes and sizes. From trading careers that are just starting out to professional traders that have mastered the Betfair exchange. Why do I mention this?The truth is that every trader is unique, no two journeys are identical. Why does this matter?I think it matters because traders (and people in life in general) do not look inwardly enough. Why is this?There is a lot of information about Betfair trading out there but from what I have seen very few people have ever focussed on what matters most - YOU!The reality is I can show you all the trades in the world and explain them in detail but has that helped you correct any of your issues or train you as a trader, maybe but your personal journey is that, yours.So your learning needs to incorporate you.  This is a big part of the reason we offer the one-to-one coaching threads on our forum and why we focus so much on working with traders individually to improve their discipline and mentality.The problem is simply that if you are being held back in your trading, you need to be able to analyse that and understand what is happening.  Let's give some examples of what can hold a trader back and then some advice on how to correct this:1. Lack of confidence - You may not have the confidence in yourself or truly believe you can make the right steps to become a profitable Betfair trader. 2. Lack of time - You may be rushing or forcing your trading into a narrow time window, making trades you would not normally do.3. Lack of patience - You may be frustrated at not becoming a pro trader overnight, it takes time and work but you do not want to wait.4. Family/Social life - You may have young children, a busy social life or a job that takes up all of your potential free time.5. Focussing on others trading ability - You may be jealous of how others or doing or put yourself down because you are not as good a trader.  Listen to my breakdown of all of this right here!
