The Sunday Scoop

If there’s one thing guaranteed to improve our investing skills, it’s reading as much as possible about the field that we want to be proficient in.

For me, that field is obviously cryptocurrency, but I know that for you it could be a huge number of different areas and so, each Sunday, I share some articles of interest that can help to improve your understanding of some of these areas and, ultimately, help you make more money from them!

I also try to ensure that there’s a mix of content for beginners, pros and everyone in between.

🍦 First up this week is an exposé on Facebook, and who doesn’t like those?! Click here to read about how certain ‘elite’ users are exempt from their rules.

🍦 A group that love a good exposé are Anonymous and one of their ex-members has supposedly returned to the fold this week. Here’s the video.

🍦 Moving back to slightly less shady territory we have the big crypto news of the week, with Twitter adding Bitcoin tipping to the platform. You can get the details here.

🍦 It does seem like crypto is becoming more accepted by the mainstream all the time and here we even have The Economist saying it’s wise to add Bitcoin to an investment portfolio.

I certainly wouldn’t disagree with that, but I have much more than just Bitcoin in my own portfolio…

🍦 To hear all about it and get access to the full shebang, just click this link.

And that’s just about that for today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

How to place Adam’s bets

Hey, Bet Chat Bec here!

Placing Adam’s selections should be pretty easy for seasoned bettors but, just in case you’re a bit of a newbie (like I was when I first started following the service), I’ve recorded some short videos showing you how to place the most common bet types that Adam recommends.

Here they are…

Email Tips (including ‘Player Pass’ bets)

Telegram Tips (including ‘Asian handicap’ bets)

Spread Betting Tips (‘Player Performance’ market)

I hope those videos give you all the info you need to get started with confidence but, as always, if you have any further questions you can contact Adam by emailing clients@thebetchat.com.

“It’s time to launch the Bec E-Letter!”

Reporting from the underground rave cave, north London…

Hey, Bet Chat Bec here! 

This week I’m booting Josh aside and taking control of the e-letter, or Bec E-Letter as I like to call it.

But don’t worry, this isn’t some mad coup, there’s actually a very good reason…

You see, back in March Josh set me a betting challenge and, seeing as I rarely bet and aren’t even into watching British sports, ‘challenge’ was the definitely the operative word.

And how did I get on? Well, let’s just say that I got my hands on this little beauty with the profits!

Check your emails tomorrow when I’ll be revealing the full story and, more importantly, letting you know how you can follow in my betting footsteps.

🍦 We start with news of the latest billionaire. No, not me sadly… this guy.

🍦 While I may not be a billionaire (yet) I can afford a fancy pair of sunglasses. However nowadays – thanks to Facebook – they come with terms of use. Click here to read the story and do some good old eye rolling.

🍦 Something worth no real money at all is that Beanie Baby you have knocking about in the loft, so why are some of them supposedly selling for tens of thousands of dollars on eBay? Well, it’s a scam of course. Delve into the marketplace trickery here.

🍦 Next up, I have a rare TV series recommendation – Vigil which stars the excellent Suranne Jones. Watch it free of charge here.

🍦 Finally for today, a nudge towards the brand new piece of trading kit from the Ong brothers – two extremely talented traders that I crossed paths with at my previous publishing company.

The kit can easily and quickly identify trades in currency pairs, stocks and even the crypto markets, and has been shown to have a strike rate in excess of 70% in testing.

You can find out more about it and take advantage of their introductory pricing by clicking this link.

That’s your lot for today. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Bet Chat recommends

Everyone loves a recommendation don’t they? 

That’s why, in this Sunday series, Bet Chat Bec and I will be highlighting the very best stuff we’ve been consuming with our eyes and ears over the preceding seven days.

It also – shock horror – won’t be purely stuff about sport, betting and investing. After all, having other interests and being able to ‘switch off’ is very much a good thing.

So, without further ado, let’s get started…

Just the two recommendations this week but two with a strong link between them, even if you’ll think I’ve lost the plot initially.

First up is the new Netflix documentary, Turning Point, which explores terrorism and the response to terrorism post 9/11…

You can watch it here.

The second is Clive Jones’s Racecracker service which you can try here.

I did say you’ll think I’ve lost the plot but bear with me!

You see, what makes Turning Point interesting is how the documentary doesn’t just wallow in the devastation of terrorist attacks and tell us all about how awful the perpetrators are.

Both are of course entirely legitimate angles and certainly not ones I would disagree with, but what takes it to another level is how they look at the response to 9/11 and the mistakes that were made which, in many cases, rather than end terrorism have actually cultivated it.

And this isn’t anti American lefty liberal spiel either, it’s simply looking at how often highly emotional people (as they have every right to be after a terrorist attack) have a habit of making bad decisions.

All of which brings me to Racecracker which went live a few months ago and, after a good opening week, promptly ran into the worst run that Clive had experience in the three years of fine tuning the service…

Understandably many new members were less than impressed and many cancelled their subscriptions, but here’s the thing…

The run – while undeniably tough – didn’t break the betting bank (quite a way from it in fact), and the results since the lowest ebb?

More than 80 points profit, recouping all of the loss plus a decent wedge of overall profit on top.

The takeaways to all this are four-fold…

  1. Try not to make decisions when angry or highly emotional.
  2. If a service recommends a betting bank then you should be prepared to use that betting bank. If you’re not, you’d be better off not following the service to begin with.
  3. Give Racecracker a try by clicking this link.
  4. I’m not in any way making light of terrorism here. If you think I am, please read all the above again (oh and watch the Netflix series)!

And after that slightly ‘out there’ piece, I wish you good day.
