Day 16 – awful. Let’s get the shite out of the way so we can delve right into the good stuff. Whenever you trade, ALL aspects need your full concentration. I’m not just on about where you get involved and so forth but also what you type in or select when selecting a stake size. This ‘little’ fuck-up was down to me entering £50 as liability instead of just £5. I was laying at 1.06 to trying and reduce my red but instead I made it a lo worse. Ah well, mistakes happen. Onto the next.
Day 17 was much better. I’m working away again so my time in the day markets has been non-existent. Good for me however is the US Open has been throughout the evening allowing me to get involved once I get back to the hotel.
The first trade I jumped in too soon and got bit. However I just let it go and moved onto the next and got back the profit I’d lost on the previous two trades – WINNER!
The next one brought more profit as I laid Nadal early on and traded out for some green. The last one was a pre-lay that I entered a couple of days ago. Federer’ opening price was too low so I laid it and watched the profit flow. I was going to trade this match but I was just too tired and would have had to stay up to 4am. Easy profit
So here is where the challenge stands:
I feel it’s really gaining momentum now so it’s important I keep my head in check in order to stay in profit and allow it to grow steadily.
