Trading question.
« on: June 22, 2016, 02:02:37 PM »

At the start of the tournament I layed a 10.00 back bet on  England to win Euro 2016 at 10.5 with a stake of 8.61 and a liability of 81.79.Now the lay odds have risen to 13.00.
Then I backed Italy last night at 20.00 for 10.00, thinking that if the odds dropped I would lay and make a profit. That’s about as far as my understanding of trading takes me.
Now Betfair offers me Cashout of 93.63.
Can anyone help me to understand this ? By what magic has my 8.61 lay bet become worth so much ?
What would I be doing in the real world if I was trying to do what the Betfair software is doing ?
Thanks.
