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 January 2016 panned out for us...
We had 26 days of action (we take Sundays off!) and after 2 of our selections were non-runners, we were left with 102 selections, of which 25 were winners at a strike rate of 24.51%. And this is pretty much in line with our overall strike rate, as you'll see shortly, but maybe 2 or 3 fewer winners than expected.
These 25 winners over 26 days could therefore have manifested itself into no winning doubles at all, 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 23.08% comes in well short of our cumulative strike rate which even after a couple of poor months still stands at 33.33%. Our overall strike rate suggests we were probably three winning doubles shy of parity in December.
And those tthree missing doubles are surely the difference between a profitable month and the actual achieved 6.51pts loss: figures I'm not proud of, but won't hide them/myself either! And the only positive thing I can say about those figures is that the second half of the month has seen somewhat of an upturn in form and the month as a whiole was far better than December!
We staked 52pts across the month and our returns of just 45.49pts produced that loss of 6.51pts at an ROI of -12.52%, which has admittedly put a dent in our bottom line, but despite experiencing a recent downturn, we still hold just over 75.5pts of someone else's money as we enter into a third year of selections for the Double Dutch.
25 winning selections from 102 = 24.51%
6 winning bets in 26 days = 23.08%
P/L : -6.51pts (-12.52% ROI)
And Overall :
793 winning selections from 2852 = 27.81%
246 winning bets in 738 days = 33.33%
P/L : +75.53pts (+5.12% ROI)
