I started to write a journal of my progress after the first 3 months. I found that there was just so much to learn and since a lot of this was by trial and error, the only way to build upon my mistakes was to write things down. I expect that many other traders will have had similar experiences, good and bad, and if you’re just about to start out, you’ll no doubt have them too. I’ve condensed my early experiences into a ‘start up guide’ and I’d like to invite you to download your copy for free

DOWNLOAD MY SPORTS ARBITRAGE START UP GUIDE

If you have decided that you want to study sports arbitrage even further, the books below are, in my opinion, the best available. The first will get you started on the road to profitable trading and it may, indeed, be the only one you need. The second two are highly advanced reference books which detail the construction and formulae for nearly 400 cross-market arbitrage trading strategies. It’s by trading these types of techniques that professionals make so much money on a regular basis.

1. SPORTS ARBITRAGE : HOW TO PLACE RISKLESS BETS AND CREATE TAX-FREE INVESTMENTS

This is the most detailed & comprehensive book available on the subject of sports-arbitrage.

It has been written by an expert, with 15 years of trading experience, who sets out towards two goals: to teach the novice reader all there is to know before embarking on his or her sports-arbitrage trading project, and to teach experienced traders some of the more complex techniques used by professionals.

Over 100 pages of this book are devoted to divulging methods to find arbitrage opportunities manually and, by using many real-world examples of trades, the author reveals & explains several techniques which have never before been published and which are as yet unknown to the majority of traders.

The theories are explained clearly but what really sets this book apart is its focus on the practical realities of trading. Whether you are a novice or experienced trader, the author’s insights will help you towards increased profits from your sports-arbitrage trading project.

My Video Tutorials

I know from experience that it is often much easier to grasp trading concepts if  they are actually shown to you in a demonstration rather than just written about.

I’ve made a set of videos for you which, I suppose, are similar to a  course of personal one-on-one tuition sessions with me as your  teacher.

In the Videos, I cover the following topics:
- setting up accounts with MS Money
- Tennis Set-Betting
- Betting Exchange Strategies
- Leveraging Existing Arbs
- Middles & Sides
- Multiple Currencies

These videos are now available exclusively, only when you purchase the Cross Market Trading Volumes using my link.

    Dear Alan, where can i find your video tutorials ? Can’t find the link.
    Thank you :-)

  2. Olivier Says:

    Hey Alan,
    i really appreciate your reply.
    I am a full time stock trader, and owe a Hedge Fund in Geneva, but i would i would like to discover this world of sport arbitrage. I want to thank you for your time.

    I have one more question :
    I am very interested about your arbstation. What is the difference between your arbstation and sportsarbitrageworld (SAW) ? Is it the same tool (giving arbs every days) or is it different ? Because you advise your members to use SAW.
    Sorry if this question appears to be stupid, i want to be sure i understoof everything.

    Thank you Alan.


    • Dear Olivier,

      Thanks very much for writing.

      The software performs a similar task but mine operates with different bookmakers & I prefer my own user interface. My software Is not currently capable of finding cross market trades and it is mainly for my personal use; I allow up to 10 others to use it by subscription but I don’t consider myself a software/service provider.

      I recommend the software at SAW because they are a professional service provider, capable of handling many users, and they offer excellent customer support. Their software is capable of finding cross market trades, which is quite important if you’re serious about trading.

      All the best.

      Sincerely,
      Alan Seymour

    Dear Alan,

    I downloaded your Sports Arbitrage Guide, and have found it a very good introduction.

    Alan, are there certain hours that are most fruitful for the arbitrageur? I am at GMT -5, and am concerned I may have to work during odd hours to synchronize with European activities. Thanks for your kind support.

    • Dear Freshman,

      Thanks very much for writing.

      Peak times change over the course of the year as major events move around the world & into different timezones. You may find yourself having to wake up much earlier than normal at some times of the year, but as you are 5 hours behind the UK, you will be at an advantage when most of us are asleep!

      All the best.

      Sincerely,
      Alan Seymour

  5. Anders Says:

    Dear Alan Seymour

    I would love to accept you’re offer, but the link on SAW is broken. They say i can buy it through TraderZone though. Should I tell them that I was referred buy you and do that?

    Regards
    Anders


    • Dear Anders,

      Thanks very much for writing.

      You may purchase them in any way, please just send me a copy of the payment receipt & I’ll be happy to send you the videos by return.

      All the best.

      Sincerely,
      Alan Seymour

    Hi Alan,

    Congratulations on a great site. It is truely a great source for Arbitrage.

    Alan, I am only commencing my Arbitrage journey and wish to purchase the books and receive access to your videos, however, is it possible we may exchange an email prior, in order to address a concern that I have. If you could find the time to email me that would be great so that I can explain my concern.

    Thank you.

  7. Paul Says:

    Hi Alan,

    I too would like your videos, how do I send you the receipt after buying the books.

    Best regards,
    Paul

  8. Brian Says:

    Hi Alan, I am wondering just how many arbs you do an hour on average? Your 2010 accounts show about 2 an hour if I use the ~600 or so over ~340 hours. Then there is the one a minute figure from the number at the bottom of the sheet.
    Thanks for your helpful site.
    Regards
    Brian


    • Dear Brian,

      Thanks very much for writing.

      An arb sent by a service or uncovered by my software takes more or less a minute for me to execute. Arbs that I source manually may take over an hour to source & then a minute or 2 to execute.

      All the best.

      Sincerely,
      Alan Seymour

  9. mike smith Says:

    Hi Alan,

    You recommend MS Money but it is now discontinued and unsupported. Do older versions of MS Money run on WIndows 7 (32 bit)? Can you reccommend other software that does what you do in accounts?

    Your website is a breath of fresh air in its field!

    Regards

    Mike


    • Dear Mike,

      Thanks very much for writing.

      I think that you can use any accounts software – all you are doing is recording debits, credits & transfers. They just happen to be called bets & winnings instead of expenses & income, whilst deposits & withdrawals remain the same.

      All the best.

      Sincerely,
      Alan Seymour

  10. Karl Says:

    Hi Allan,

    I originally tried to use Money following your guide but I had a new version of Money that just wasn’t making sense to me when setting it up using your guide. Basically now that I’ve played around arbing for about 12 months I want to get more serious and as such want all my records to be secure and able to be backed up!! So I’ve decided to give money another go. I have downloaded the version linked to from your site.

    Forgive my ignorance here but just a couple of questions would help me get my head around using money to record arbs.

    Firstly you say to DELETE the transaction from pending wins once the trade is complete, by this do you mean transfer the win to the winning bookie/s or actually delete that transaction altogether and just make a new deposit for the win at the relevant bookie/s?

    Secondly I can’t get my head around how you are using the categories. It would seem to me that a new category is created for each individual arb, If this is so don’t you end up with thousands upon thousands of categories???
    Your help with these two questions would be greatly appreciated. I would also love your opinion on surebetor.com ie. do you think it is suitable for keeping such records.

    Many many thanks in advance Allan.


    • Dear Karl,

      Thanks very much for writing.

      1. You could transfer it over from Pending or delete it and create a new deposit to the bookmaker where the bet won.

      2. I use categories to split arbs up into the sports that they’re in. This doesn’t create 1000s of categories.

      All the best.

      Sincerely,
      Alan Seymour
