How to use the Betfair Chart to support your trading strategies

The Betfair Chart, a tool available in the Betfair markets, displays information about the value of the odds and the respective liquidity for a selection. With this chart, it is possible to make analyses that can be applied in trading strategies. The guys from Traderline explain all...

A good example of using the Betfair Chart effectively is in the analysis of support and resistance levels, as it is helpful to know the upper and lower limits of variation of the odds. This analysis is used by traders when they trade before the start of the match (pre-live). 

'Support' and 'resistance' are two imaginary horizontal lines that serve as upper and lower limits for the variation of the odds. When the odds exhibit a trend to increase or decrease, once they reach the support or resistance line, it is highly probable that the trend will be reversed.

• If it was rising, once it gets to the resistance line, the trend reverts and starts falling.
• Similarly, if the odds were falling, once it gets to the support line, the trend reverts and then starts rising.

When analysing the levels of support and resistance in the Betfair chart, you must have in mind that the resistance lines are always above the odds and that, when they are crossed by the market odds, they then serve as new support lines.

Similarly, the support lines work as a lower limit for the odds. When the support line is crossed, it usually becomes the new resistance line. 

Knowing the support and resistance odds, you can anticipate any changes in the market and buy or sell at the best price, because when a market's odds get close to these levels, the trend will probably revert. This way, you can start making a profit through trading even before the start of the match.
