Over the last ten days I have received a couple of anonymous comments which I have never accepted onto the blog. They were stating that I am probably making the whole blog up and that I am most likely making a large loss as it is almost impossible to make a profit trading.
Do they really think that I am sad enough to spend a large chunk of my spare time adding to my page with pure fantasy. It's not as if I am showing off how wonderful I am.
Well I imagine that this post will cheer them up immensely! It is approaching 7pm and currently my days P/L is £241 down. For the benefit of my anonymous friends I could have said I was out all day with no action but I keep on saying that the only reason I am doing this is to document and refer to help me improve. So why lie! I also appreciate the supportive comments I receive.
So what went wrong? I had a bad session generally and there were two major incidents which contributed to the disaster. There were no power cuts this time, it was purely my bad performance. I was a little bit down on the 3.10 at Plumpton and I decided to try to reduce it in play considering that it was a 3 mile race but before long Geography fell and I was left totally exposed to an £80 loss. The following race showed a loss pre race of £18. Then came the big cock up losing me £108. It was a little bit simlar to the Plumpton race as I was a little down and decided to go inplay and I had a green result so went onto the next race. What I didn't realise was that somehow I left a bet of £120 on Grey Soldier which eventually came third. You can imagine my horror when I noticed my bank was not what it should have been. Why couldn't it have won!!!
I am not going to amend the running total until the end of the day. I will have a go at the AUS v SL 20/20 and a couple of footie matches to try at the very least to be under £200.
