So the final results from my month long test of Goal Machine Zero are in. (If you are unsure what it is then get more info by clicking here.) Did we make a profit? Will I continue using it in future? Can others replicate this?
Read on to find out…
UPDATE: Goal Machine Pro will be released this Friday to a limited amount of people. Get your name down on the invite list if you are interested as this is the ONLY way to get it.
Also, I will be providing the FULL “dossier” of my results from this testing period as a free gift to those who Goal Machine. This way you can see every match that was traded, and therefore which matches work well, which matches don’t (Hint:UEFA Nations League) , the ups, the downs and you will have a good idea of what to expect going forwards.
So in last week’s update the profit/loss chart looked like this with a profit of £1069.01 after 164 trades…
And after now completing 251 trades it looked like this…
The final total profit being £1510.09.
A £2500 bank was used risking NO more than 3% per trade and so this was an overall bank growth of 60% with an overall ROI of 7%.
Some more specifics from my spreadsheet are below and this specially designed spreadsheet will also be available to you as part of one of the packages for Goal Machine.
Really good for tracking your progress.
Some got confused last week when I mentioned bank growth being 40% and thinking that was the ROI%. I wish!
It also turns out a lot of people don’t even know what ROI% is and what a good ROI% is.
ROI% is the return on investment. This means the sum of ALL the money put into the market over the 251 trades is the investment and the money made is the return.
A good ROI% is anything between 1-10%, anything above 10% is simply outstanding and very hard to find in the long term.
The actual ROI% for this ended up being 7%. It was above 8% before the International matches and so that is pretty much in line with the typical ROI% you see with profitable methods.
My loss rate was 20% and Matt suggested it should be going towards 25% so it is possible this ROI would decrease and go towards 5% in the even longer term which is still very solid.
On the spreadsheet you will also see the “Average Profit“, this is an important metric for me to keep track of when using the strategy as Matt explains in the manual. For our test, if it goes below £25 then it means I am not being aggressive enough and need to up my game.
This was helpful with regards to sticking to the method and also “chasing” higher prices to squeeze out more profit rather than taking the prices that were on offer. Stuff I already know from my own trading but when using someone else’s methods you can tend to be more conservative initially.
When you see the strategy you will know what I mean 😉
So the big growth was done the previous week and the growth slowed this week but still continued an upward trend. The fact the week was an International week might be the reason but growth is still growth.
You can see it was quite a bit up and down but I am pretty happy with this since there were a couple of bad days in there.
Look at this run which happened as soon I moved to a new milestone of the bank and increased the stakes.
Funny how this always happens whenever you increase stakes right? 😉
That was pretty testing for the bank and I rarely enjoy trading Internationals (or the Egyptian Premier League) but I had to go for it and get the results from somewhere before the new season starts.
At one point, I almost had to scale the stake back down a level which is never fun.
The Wales goal was in the last minute otherwise that would have been a truly horrible day!
Last night wasn’t much better and you could say I am relieved the International break is over.
But there were some bad luck moments too, which prevented the bank from taking another big “leap” upwards.
Iceland’s missed penalty against England would have doubled our profits in that one and then France missed a penalty in the last minute which would have avoided taking a loss there.
This was a nice green run with the matches in Asia always being fun to trade.
Then I missed getting in the Russia-Serbia match by ONE tick and that would have played out beautifully for the strategy with 4 goals in the second half. We might have made about 10% of the bank in that one.
The goals fell nicely in this Swindon match and I was one goal away from increasing the bank by 5% but alas it never arrived.
Eventually the main matches which really helped were Dalkurd 3-2 Vasteras and the Portugal 4-1 win over Croatia.
We are getting paid per goal with this strategy but if the player’s aren’t scoring goals then there is not much we can do!
So sometimes you have to be in the right place at the right time with this but I doubt I would use this on Nations League again myself.
And as I have seen with this method, the worm turns when you least expect it and a few goals with the right timing can see big spikes in bank growth.
Will I Continue Using Goal Machine Zero?
So the testing is now over and 60% bank growth with a four figure profit is not to be sniffed at, so will I continue using this as it is?
If you are someone with a lot of experience like myself and that already has strategies you are comfortable with then it is actually more of a case of seeing if you have “space” to add this method in to your portfolio or take nuggets from it and apply to your own style.
Goal Machine Zero seems to work pretty well with volume and for me to commit to it would mean no space for my usual strategies. So since there are not enough hours in the day I won’t be switching over entirely but looking to use alongside my usual strategies when the opportunity fits or looking to see if a bot can be created to automate this on a new account.
Just to be clear, this would be a bot that would be trading the method in a set way if it is fully possible. This isn’t something you can set up on the interface and then forget about.
Also, if I wanted to use 3 and 4 figure stakes with GMZ it would lower the amount of opportunities per day. So once you go past a 10k bank you might find it harder to scale which is exactly what happened to Matt with this method.
But as I write this I do feel like I will “miss” using this strategy on a daily basis which is a strange thing to say. Over the past month, I got into the routine of using it whilst the big leagues were on a break and when the good days are there it is a pretty fun strategy.
After all, once you get that first goal it is just a matter of seeing how many more can arrive.
So who knows what the future will bring? I found it pretty easy to use via mobile so that might be something I do if I don’t manage to automate it. The J League matches this morning do look pretty tempting to use this strategy on.
However, the method that WILL definitely be finding its way into my regular rotation is what we decided to call Goal Machine X since it can easily fit around all my other strategies and actually complement them.
I love a good low risk high reward method and this might be one of the best I have seen.
You have to be patient and you have to use it sensibly. If you use this wildly or without the “protection” Matt suggests in the manual then you will probably have a bad time.
I have been setting these up, locking in the free bet when opportunity arises and probably only 1 in 10 come in.
As long as I am removing risk when possible, I am patient to wait for it to happen. I see these as being “bonus wins” when they come in rather than something I am relying on.
And for this demo period I was only using £25 stakes to create these free bets but I can easily use 3 figure stakes doing this and I look forward to doing this on some of the big leagues that have the sufficient liquidity.
Just remember, if you approach this with no patience then you will probably have a bad time.
One for the more experienced football traders I think!
Anyway, that wraps it up. Goal Machine Pro will be available for a limited time only, opening this Friday September 11 to Sunday September 13 and is by invite only.
Get on the list below if you want to be invited:
Remember, everyone who signs up will get a copy of my results dossier so you can see every match traded I on and how it worked for me.
Maybe you can even learn from my mistakes 😉
Anyway, Friday is the day. You can learn the method for yourself and discover how to get paid per goal.
UPDATE: UFT Member Glen Kirkham has completed the course as a Beta Tester and recorded a video sharing his experience and what he thinks. Check it out below!
