Another telling off

The bloomin' weather is doing my head in. Today looked to be a rich source of racing but due to the frost, we were left with only 3 meets - bah!

Anyway, I got it into my head that I wasn't going to profit like yesterday because it was so bitty; silly attitude and one that I need eradicate if I'm going to make a living out of this.

I made sure I gave myself a jolly good telling off after a sloppy loss in the 14:00 and that was enough to ignite the trading flame once more.

Another few silly mistakes limited my profit but I can't be too harsh on myself - profit is profit and it's been a good week with £73 of green.

This blog

With regards to my daily blog updates, I think I'll be posting less frequently in the New Year, one reason being it takes so bloomin' long to summise each day!

This blog has been a good crutch to get me through a very difficult period of 'newbie trading' and, in Karate terms, I think I've earned my yellow belt this week.

I'd advise any brand spanking new trader to blog daily because, if nothing else, the initial humiliation of losing or just making a few pence is a good motivator indeed...if anyone reads it that is!

See you soon!


  1. Nice weekly profit, hope it continues for you.

  2. Cheers Neil, looks like things are looking up for both of us!

  3. No - you need to update it daily! Well done with getting into the positives with your graph - hopefully onwards and upwards.
