Little notes

I've said in the past that I write little notes in the P+L spreadsheet to sum up the day. A couple of weeks ago I was having a real meltdown...

Anyway, I've had a reasonable run of form again this week and some of the comments are a bit more positive...

Treating the trading more casually has certainly helped. Today was an example of some fairly straighforward trades which mounted up into a nice little sum...

Nothing too stressful there. Yesterday, on the other hand, was a whole different story! I had an equally profitable day, but under much more stressful circumstances. I was lucky to escape with the shirt still on my back to be honest.

I thought I'd be doing a bit better at this by now, to be frank. When I read posts like this

where the chap did 13K in one month alone, it certainly does make my effort look particularly pitiful. I've been thinking about what I can do to make some bigger sums as I'm still waiting for that elusive £50 day...erm, and the elusive £40 day for that matter!

I suppose that my style has something to do with it. The pros tend to have many bets in play at the same time, even across different horses; I'm afraid that my brain can't cope with such things - I'm strictly a one-in, one-out sort of trader. I suppose that may change in time, as and when the consistency comes.

I think that stakeage could probably doing with looking at again too, since I've been sitting on £40 stakes for quite some time now and it's getting too comfortable again.
