I was busy with some other stuff. I noticed a massive amount of bikers appearing on the roads now the weather has changed. It made me feel rather sick as I sold my pride and joy (above) at the end of last summer, wounded, really I am!
This lead me to thinking how everything I ever seem interested in is classed as “risky”. A flaw in my character perhaps?
My job, motorbikes, adrenaline sports oh and of course trading! HaHa. Obviously to us it doesn’t seem quite like that, but the outsiders have it in their head for sure. It’s hard when those around you don’t tend to agree it’s such a good idea.
In this game, quite simply; all you have to do is be consistent and manage risk accordingly. The one thing I let myself down with time and time again is pushing the boundaries, but why do I do it?
I go on long stints of consistency playing the game as it should, before a sharp blow. And 99% of the time its due to not managing my stakes correctly. I get a little over-excited with the clicking. It’s really starting to get to me after today. I spent an hour trading and finished a measly £3 up. Had I not made 2 mistakes in that hour, overtaking and getting click happy. I would have been £34 up.
This happens almost daily at the moment and seems the only difference between when I’m having a good streak or a frustrating one. This week alone I have made around £230 but lost £200 due to this kind of behaviour.
The worst thing its starting to affect my state of mind towards trading again. Something that definitely needs addressing, any suggestions welcome 🙂
