So after my last post about 1 on 1 coaching, I was rather overwhelmed with the response! It’s good to know that so many people like to read the blog and some have already gained from it!!
Hearing these things really gives me more motivation to keep posting.
So from the emails straight away I could see someone was really keen to learn and give it a go.. this sort of enthusiasm is really important to success in the markets I feel and so once I see they were breaking even and using stakes of a level ‘id call ‘serious’ with +/- a few pounds a race I knew it was likely to be my first ‘Padawan’ haha!
We started a few hours before the racing going through set-up, market forces and what makes things tick generally which was good as I think it was a real eye opener and probably not what was expected by my student (but if it was expected I suppose it would be easy, right?).
Come the start of the afternoon card it was time to put some theory into practice!
I must admit being the first time I’d done this I was a little anxious as we all know there is not always a certainty in the markets! but it all went pretty well really and I spent the majority of the time talking and pointing out certain things in the markets amongst placing some trades.
I think after the initial ‘you make it look easy’ and getting to grips with why I was doing certain things, it started to set in with the methodical approach applied to every race.
All in all I’d say it was a success and come the end of the afternoon we were both content. Still, amongst all the talking and explanations not even trading in a couple of races we still finished just under £150 up! It can’t be bad!
I’ll be staying in touch, so hopefully in the future my first student if he feels happy to can put a post up on here to see how his trading and results have changed!!
This weeks racing
This week I haven’t really had any time spare to trade truth be told. With my normal job and the usual hustle and bustle, maybe just an hour here and there. Hopefully it will be back to business as usual soon. I’ve booked a couple of days off for the Doncaster meeting this week, Saturday looking a little better than the average week.
Overall I’ve felt the markets are a little up and down at the moment probably due to the changing of seasons I suppose… but still, it wont be long before the jumps really get going!! WooHoo!
Keep it green and stay lucky!
