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.

+£34.99. Traded 3 races and realised that I've turned into a right miserable bastard. OK I have a few life/personal issues going on but nothing to get stressed about! I need to lighten up and stop moaning all the fucking time ...

06/11

-£148.79. Whoops!

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.

    1. Hi Jacko

      Yep shit happens mate but to be honest I'm good at making a mountain out of a molehill!

      I tend to be a summertime binge drinker and that's probably the worst thing that you can do when it comes to booze :( It's a sure sign of impending disaster if you mix this with emotional and relationship problems!

      So yep a bit of an alcohol break along with a good diet does do wonders for the mind and body.

      Thanks for the support and hope the trading is going well at your end :)

      Cheers - Dave

  2. Great last few days mate considering what you are going through.
    Keep going, stay profitable, keep blogging as I love reading it. Nowhere near the same level as you but maybe one day. If ever you are up in the grim North West, Blackpool, Cleveleys give me a shout and will will have a beer or two and put world to rights. Andy

  4. Dave, I've read through your blog and watched some of your videos 5 or 6 months ago. Just came back now to catch up. Sorry you're having a crap time. Hope it sorts itself out. I'd be up for 1 to 1 training. All the Best, Matt.

  5. Hi Dave - you're still making some pretty decent profits, despite the difficulties, nice one.
    In my own progress, I recently had a usual sort of run - monster loss one day, monster win the next day. I'm finding a one step forward one back right now to be a pattern I find hard to break! I think I'm making small progress though (in the past I'd have blown whole banks in some of the markets that screwed me recently). I still have a tendency to let a big loss ruin a great day though at times. Would love to get better at spotting when I'm going to make those mistakes or pick those selections.
    Keep up the good work, you're doing excellent.
    Cheers,
    Stu.

  6. Forex is a somewhat unique market for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is one of the few markets in which it can be said with very few qualifications that it is free of external controls and that it cannot be manipulated. It is also the largest liquid financial market, with trade reaching between 1 and 1.5 trillion US dollars a day. With this much money moving this fast, it is clear why a single investor would find it near impossible to significantly affect the price of a major currency. Furthermore, the liquidity of the market means that unlike some rarely traded stock, traders are able to open and close positions within a few seconds as there are always willing buyers and sellers.
