Top 3 Tennis Trading Tips For Beginners!
Spectate The Market before entering
When trading tennis many newbie traders try and look for a position to take right from the start of the match. It is actually better to wait and see a few games played before getting involved in the markets.
Your biggest advantage over the starting price markets is seeing the players actually performing when the event gets underway. You do not have to go in right at the start as usually the best opportunities are found during the actual match once you spot a player under or over performing. There is nothing worse then planning a trade before a match and then seeing the player you are favouring misfiring in the opening game or two when you could have just waited to see how they started and had more information to go with.
Trade Only One Match At A Time
If you are new to Tennis Trading then You should only trade one match at a time. The only time You trade more than match at the time is if there are many matches on at the same time and You spot a huge opportunity in another match.
When you only trade one match at once you will begin to notice much more about it as your full concentration will be on that match. If you are new to trading this sport this is very important.
Watch The Match You Trade
Watching the match you trade is also very important too. These days there is no excuse for not being able to watch the match you are trading as there is plenty of live Tennis on the Betfair streams and all over the Internet.
Do not trade tennis blindly and using a scoreboard. Scoreboards used to be fine if they was simply no alternative but, as just mentioned, you should be using live pictures. When you have the pictures your mind can absorb far more information about the match and this will help you with your decision making. For example, you might see that a player is trailing but is still serving well and is putting his opponent under pressure. In this case you would want to favour the trailing player and this could be a great opportunity to get involved but you would only have spotted it by actually watching the match. Also, by watching the match you are also much more likely to spot turning points and momentum changes.
