So far this year I’ve started as I mean to go on! A decent week’s work followed by a week in Costa Adeje, Tenerife. It was a wicked week to break up this miserable winter weather, I’m now back and re-charged ready to take the markets head on.
The break away also gave me a lot of time to reflect on a few things I have learnt recently, the main focus being on Pareto’s Principle. I’ve mentioned it previously although it will be something I’m going to focus on over the coming months missing out the worst trading days/markets and focusing even harder on the ones that are best for me. Hopefully I can apply it to my life outside of trading too! It should be interesting.
Soaking up some rays at the poolside last week…
I hadn’t been to Tenerife before but would definitely go again, maybe when it’s slightly hotter although we only had one day where the weather wasn’t that great so shouldnt complain!
After the hustle and bustle of Christmas it was nice to get away and chill out while seeing somewhere different. During the week I managed to see some dolphins, take a VIP cruise on a catamaran, try out the local cuisine, made some new friends and even drunk so much I can’t remember what happened one afternoon (completely by accident with the ‘all inclusive’ alcohol).
Back in business…
So with a week off that leaves me a couple of % behind of the average target for this years challenge. I’m not particularly worried though as I fully expect to make up a large % of the year’s total target throughout mid March to the beginning of August.
It feels like eternity but the Flat season will soon be upon us with fuller markets. If you haven’t traded the summer racing previously and are just getting into this now it will be worth the wait! And if you did last year but hadn’t quite got the hang of things it’ll be a welcome opportunity to turn some better results in possibly even increasing stakes!
Exciting times ahead, good luck if your trading this week!!
