When I started I had a bankroll of 6k, but within the first month I realised the potential arbitrage had and got a helping hand from my sis with another 10k. That was around 4-5 years ago and that capital was more than enough to start doing serious business back then. Now she asks me for x-digit loans for her business.
If I compare the two era's I would say that now someone needs at least 40-50k bankroll to be seriously involved in this. Of course a newbie could also work with... 100 euros and win some cents daily, that's arbitrage too!
agree, I started at the same time, which was about 7 years too late,damn!!!, I also had £6k but not a rich sis'
so went to two banks and took out two loans totalling £16k, that money was essential, was constantly running out
of money before that.
yes to do this job seriously nowadays and to maximise profit your gonna need a big bankroll, having said that if I
was down to my last £20k knowing what I know now I'd still make quite a good living,
for a newbie with a small bankroll, don't despair, do what you can to increase it and use your bankroll wisely, stating the obvious but don't have your bankroll tied up for any period of time on future bets, quick turnover is required for all your arbs.
