As most of you are aware, my choice of social media is Twitter. I often find myself going through it to see who is doing what in the realms of trading – constantly engaging and private tweeting to find out who’s got potential and who is out there trying to screw everyone over. I noticed Craig’s feed a while ago and I found his skills to come on really well. I noticed he was honest in his posts and that I liked as there are many that never admit when they are wrong. Craig is a genuine character who knows what he is doing.
Please give a short introduction to yourself?
My name is Craig. Married with 2 children. I work full time as an Engineer.
How long have you been trading and how did it come about?
I started trading in 2016 – I dabbled with the bookies for a while but was sick of them winning most of the time. I stumbled across some YouTube videos on trading so in 2016 I started off strong and lost my bank. I started back trading the beginning of 2017.
Yes i do. Will take a while to be able to deal with losses and to stop chasing losing trades, but yes!
I’ve got to be honest but i probably take 1 risk a week more than I should. We are only human. I have no ‘rituals’. If I get some peace and quiet long enough to think about my trades I’m happy. The kids are on volume-100 constantly.
Takes up a lot more of my time. The weekends I try not to go out as much as they are the best trading days for me. The the extra income is nice, so rough with the smooth.
You need to trade something that you enjoy. I think it makes it easier to understand the markets.
What 3 articles, books or sites would you recommend to read for any newbie trader?
- Mastering Betfair by Pete Nordsted
- Mark Iversons Blog – it shows you when starting off you don’t need to be making £100’s a day
- I’ll mention Caan Berry‘s site at horse racing there is no one else better at showing you the ropes.
People starting out are looking for someone else to make them good at trading. No one else can. Trust yourself. Never pay for tips or stats. Most of them can all be found online.
