LONDON, July 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The Sports Trading Club has announced a 35% surge in profits for the month of June 2014
The members of the Sports Trading Club are in line for significant payouts as the highly successful sport and prediction market trading company announced record profits for the month of June.
The private investors group reaped huge profits in June from successful trades at Wimbledon and the World Cup. Overall members enjoyed a profit of 35% for the month of June on trades of over $180 million.
The success of the Sports Trading Club and the growth of on-line gambling has attracted the attention of investors worldwide.
The Sports Trading Club, which operates as a private investors group in England, allowed the general public to become members in Australia in 2013 and is now expanding throughout Asia.
It's success in 2013 sent a clear message to investors that trading on sports and prediction markets is an emerging industry to rival traditional financial markets.
"We don't gamble, we trade," STC UK Communications Manager Patrick McMahon said. "At STC we make money out of other people's mistakes. When one side gambles, and the other trades, it is like owning the casino, you make money even whilst you sleep."
"This is an exciting emerging market and growing at an unprecedented rate, making it the fastest growing sector of e-commerce in the world today," he said.
Bank of America and Merrill Lynch predict that by 2015 the on-line sports market will be worth over $512 billion a year.
The Sports Trading Club, (http://www.sportstradingclub.com) was predicted in December 2012 to be the rising star of 2013, and lived up to that confidence by becoming the top performer in any industry, with a eighteen-fold rise in return, meaning a $50,000 investment on the 1st January 2013 made a profit of over $900,000 one year later. A rise of over 1,900 per cent.
STC says that their success can also be attributed to the enjoyment and enthusiasm of its members and the experience of being a member of an exclusive club.
"They don't have to make the decision on what to trade, we do that but they are fully informed in advance of every trade we make, so they get the same level of excitement and enjoyment by watching the sporting event in real time," Mr McMahon said.
"The difference is they win and that is far more enjoyable than losing," he said.
STC recently expanded into South Africa and is now looking toward expanding throughout Europe and Asia.
