this shows profit and loss lines in blue for lays, red for backs and green for the total - the dots underneath are volume (number of bets).
i now need to wait until monday, when i can put more money into the account, however i hope that by then i will have access to a server where i can run the system 24x7 (you know who you are - thanks!) and see how the newest strategy works out over this week.
i've read so many papers on gambling, trading, risk management, capital allocation and probability in the last week, that i don't think i really remember any of them that well. it's been quite hard to translate a lot of them into anything that actually makes sense or is useful in the real world. many start off with unrealistic assumptions, or something equivalent to "first, consider a spherical cow..."! i did, however manage to get some good advice on improving my robot performance (financially speaking) and a lot of them are actually quite interesting in their own right, and i'm going to go over them again - i'll choose a few of the best and post some links here.
