It seems almost inevitable that I have one very bad day during the middle of the month and this month hasn't disappointed. Having lost £25 on the first evening race I traded, my broadband router decided to reboot just as the following race was about to start leaving me with an open liability of £164. There was no time to put the backup plan into action as the 5f race started and I just kept my fingers crossed that Piazza didn't win. It had a bad start but typically it came through just as the finish line fast approached.
What is even more frustrating is that my decision not to chase cost me too. I know it's the best decision over the long term but if I would have taken the plunge I would be in the green.
Am I superstitious? I am not sure, but this is the second time that I have seriously thought of withdrawing some cash on the morning of a big loss and as I look through my records I can see that I have one big loss of over £101 per month which seems to occur during the middle of each month.
Oh well....onwards and upwards!
