Assured Soccer Profits (ASP) is a correct score football trading strategy, which was developed by John Duncan.
There are no claims that ASP will be the key to your early retirement or that you're guaranteed £1000’s for little effort. In fact, there's a very honest statement about profit potential:
"It doesn't seem much when you compare it to some of the claims you see out there from betting system touts but, once you have mastered ASP, this £50, £60 or even £100 per week profit can be achieved CONSISTENTLY just so long as you are prepared to master the strategy"
It's very refreshing to read something so sensible instead of all that swimming pool and Ferrari nonsense.
Anyway, we asked Bryn - one of the Launchpad Mentors at Goal Profits - to give Assured Soccer Profits a spin and see how he got on with it.
Hi, I’m Bryn and I’ll be conducting a full review of Assured Soccer Profits (ASP).
The ASP strategy is fully documented in a PDF file and, after signing up, you are also given access to the members area. When you first log in you are faced with a very simple website, very easy to navigate with links and buttons to guide you to the vast amount of information available.
You will find a wealth of information including tutorial videos, additional guides, calculators, spreadsheets, stats... the list goes on!
There is also the 'Method Modules' page which contains additional learning material from the Assured Soccer Profits blog. This information helps you deal with the various situations that you come across whilst using the system, from different strategies that can be played depending on the way the match goes to reducing liabilities.
As advised, I read the 'Quick Start Guide' first, moved onto the five 'Getting Started' videos and then got my teeth into the 'Full ASP Manual' which goes into much more detail.
Some of the Getting Started videos are obviously aimed at beginners and some of the areas covered will be a bit of a drag for an experienced trader, but I do recommend watching them all and reading the Full ASP Manual too. Do not just jump in and trade after reading the Quick Start Guide, however experienced you are.
If you are a beginner, it's advised to paper trade first before risking your own money. Because of my trading experience, I was happy to trade right away with real money and record the results for this review.
I set up a bank of £500 and followed the advice given that I should not risk more than 10% of my bank at any one time. After the first three days I had traded 6 football matches and increased my bank to £537.
A 7% increase to my trading bank in three days was an excellent return, but very early days and so I didn't get carried away.
A word of advice...
There is a lot of information on the website and it can be overwhelming to begin with. I strongly advise you to take your time to read through it - especially the way to trade if goals start flying in as this is the one scenario that could result in a big loss.
It’s so important to understand what you need to do if goals go in and you can turn a bad situation into a profitable one if you have understood the advice given.
To start off with, so you get used to the system and the market reaction I suggest you paper-trade or use minimum stakes until you come across a situation when you get early goals. Make sure you understand what you need to do in this situation as it is a very important part of the system and probably the most common situation that people struggle with.
I traded very cautiously and took no risks at all. By using the calculator provided, I got out of the trades to ensure scratch or very small profit at every available opportunity. A few trades were very close to bigger losses, but I avoided them due to my conservative approach. I made a few mistakes and some of my losses could have been avoided if I had exited the trades sooner.
This is not a system to take risks on! Follow the advice given and get out before going into the red. If you don’t exit when you should then you will lose your bank, no doubt.
Follow the plan and let the small profits mount up over time.
Month One Results
During my first month with ASP I turned my £500 bank into £602.16, which was an increase of 20.4%.
I got involved in 34 matches; 23 of them were profitable, 3 ended in a loss and 8 matches ended on scratch (£0). This worked out as a 91.2% strike rate including scratch results.
I spent around an hour per trading day picking out suitable matches, but this reduced considerably once I was more experienced with the system.
The majority of the trades were over by half-time and I didn't need to be watching the market like a hawk in-play, so I was able to use the time to pick out other potential trades.
I worked with a maximum liability of 10% of my bank per trade (£50). This was a high liability for small returns as you can see on my P/L sheet below, but during the match this liability is reduced considerably.
|Date||Team 1||Team 2||Score||Profit/Loss||Bank|
|10/11/15||America MG||Victoria BA||4-0||£6.13||£516.83|
|10/11/15||Sampaio Correa||Atletico Go||2-0||£0.96||£517.79|
|26/11/15||Legia Warsaw||FC Midtylland||1-0||£2.38||£586.22|
ASP is not the most exciting system, but you have to decide if you are trading for entertainment or to make money. I trade to make money and was already looking forward to starting the second month of my review.
Months Two and Three Results
For reasons I don't need to get into, I took a break from trading for a while. However, I got back into it and picked ASP up again to log more results for this review.
During the second period of my review, I traded 26 matches; 17 of them turned a profit, 6 were scratch (£0) and 3 were losers. That worked out to be an 88% strike rate including scratch results.
My profit for this period was £85.71.
During my Assured Soccer Profits review, I increased my £500 starting bank by 37.6% and made a total profit of £187.87.
My maximum liability per trade was £50 (10% of the bank) but realistically the full liability was not at risk unless I had decided not to make any trading moves at all (but this is not recommended).
The return on investment was 6.3%, but it was calculated as if using the full £50 stake so in reality the ROI is much higher.
I only managed 27 trading days in total. This was not a reflection of the system though, it was due to other commitments I had. Trades are available just about every day so it’s fair to say that if concentrating solely on ASP, I would have been able to trade the same amount of matches within one month very easily.
As this is a trading system, another person taking on exactly the same matches as me will see different results. This is because of trading style, entry/exit points and the amount of risk that each individual is comfortable with.
I was very pleased with my results and turned a good profit from a relatively small starting bank of £500.
If I had increased my stake in line with my bank, more profit would have been made. However, I stuck to my maximum liability of £50 throughout the review period.
|Date||Team 1||Team 2||Score||Profit/Loss||Cumulative P/L|
|10/11/15||America MG||Victoria BA||4-0||£6.13||£16.83|
|10/11/15||Sampaio Correa||Atletico Go||2-0||£0.96||£17.79|

Assured Soccer Profits will make consistent profits long-term, but only if you are disciplined and willing to put a little work into the selection process. Make sure you go to the effort of learning the system fully before you start using it!
I learned a lot about my own trading style and feel the system helped improve my discipline, so ASP certainly gave me more than just profit and I can see it becoming an important system in my portfolio.
There will be times when a loser comes along, but I can control that loss and soon make it up. The system will not be suited for everyone, but if you are disciplined and patient trader then I highly recommend it.
Perhaps best of all, there are no ongoing membership fees so one payment gets you the Assured Soccer Profits system and access to all the extra materials for life.
At Goal Profits, we have even secured a 50% discount so really it's a no-brainer.
