The Wheels Have Come Off Again! .... and Personal Training


What people don't realise is that when you have untold shit going on in your life then your work will suffer, If you do this for a living then it's so fucking easy for the wheels to fly off completely,





I've had so much fucking grief over the last few weeks that it's no surprise that I'm winning fuck all.

It's now 06/11 as I type this post and I haven't updated this blog for nearly 3 weeks. My P&L has gone totally tits up ...




I feel like crying ...





Personal Training

I am getting more and more requests for personal 1 to 1 training. I have thought about this in the past but I haven't exactly had the ideal environment in which to provide the kind of service that people require. However, when my move to the coast actually takes place I will possibly be in a position to provide this kind of service to those that may be interested.

My initial thoughts are to provide a 1 to 1 trading day that takes place in my apartment down on the south-east coast. It would ideally be a full day and it would give people the chance to see how I trade. This would include my preparation, hardware and software setup, my actual strategies along with how I analyze each race and the markets. I can also cover any questions that you may have and hopefully help iron out and problems that you may currently be experiencing. It could also include a beer or 2 in the evening, although I an now a tea drinker!

So if you are interested just drop me some feedback on here and if there is enough demand I might well consider providing some sort of personal training.

I'm now into my third week of not drinking alcohol and to be honest I don't miss it one bit!






OK so it's probably easier giving up Hoegaarden when it's bloody freezing outside and it may be harder when the sun comes out again next Summer but I'm doing mighty fine at this point in time and cups of tea seem to be the order of the day!








07/11

+£140.63
. Almost recovered yesterdays losses!



08/11

+£57.73
. It's time to string a few winning days together ...



09/11

+£272.39. That's a bit better ...







10/11


+£33.60. It was always going to be tough today with the return of flat racing at Southwell which I just can't get my head around. Therefore the mission was to post any sort of green and although £33 don't go very far it was mission accomplished. In fact it was so boring that I had a mid afternoon 90 minute snooze and I was so tired that when I woke up I thought that it was the morning!


11/11

I actually went out socially today and even though I fancied a beer I took the choice not have one and I had several cups of tea and lemonade instead!



12/11

+£202.32. A relatively busy Saturday (for November) and I managed to trade 45 races. I was off to a good start and chugged along nicely throughout the day. There weren't many overlaps of races and that makes the day much easier to manage rather than rushing about which tends to happen if you get too many races during the day.



13/11

+£200.30. A typical Sunday where I only traded 17 races but the result was a good one for this time of the year and it continued the winning run.
