Double Dutch Monthly Update : December 2015
Every day on the Double Dutch, we give you the running total of where the service stands with regards to winners, strike rates, profit/loss and the ROI, but we think it might be handy for you (whilst possibly a rod for our own backs!) to have a review of the previous month to see the current form.
So, this is how December 2015 panned out for us...
We had 24 days of action (we take Sundays off!) and after 1 of our selections was a non-runner, we were left with 95 selections, of which 25 were winners at a strike rate of 26.32%. And this is pretty much in line with our overall strike rate, as you'll see shortly, but maybe 1 or 2 fewer winners than expected.
This 25 winners over 24 days could therefore have manifested itself into just one winning double, if we'd been really unlucky or a maximum of 12 winners, so our 6 successful doubles is slap bang in the mid-range, but a monthly strike rate of 25% comes in well short of our cumulative strike rate which even after a couple of poor months still stands at 33.71%. Our overall strike rate suggests we were a couple of winning doubles shy of parity in December.
And those two missing doubles are surely the difference between a profitable month and the actual achieved 13.88pts loss: figures I'm not proud of, but won't hide them/myself either!
We staked 48pts across the month and our returns of just 34.12pts produced that loss of 13.88pts at an ROI of -28.92%, which has admittedly put a dent in our bottom line, but despite experiencing a recent downturn, we still hold just over 82pts of someone else's money as we enter 2016.
25 winning selections from 95 = 26.32%
6 winning bets in 24 days = 25.00%
P/L : -13.88pts (-28.92% ROI)
And Overall :
768 winning selections from 2750 = 27.93%
240 winning bets in 712 days = 33.71%
P/L : +82.04pts (+5.72% ROI)
