What’s Your Value?
Things have been hectic lately, particularly with this course and the connection issues I’ve had and posted about previously!
I hadn’t traded for a week until today, which is a long period for me. I’d been rather anxious having gone so long not touching the markets, worried I might have lost my touch.
It was quite the opposite at first. I’m not sure if I was drawing some confidence from the fact I have a faster connection than usual although I’m certain the connection wouldn’t of actually made much difference.
Now, I say ‘started’ because it went rather wrong later on. Had I not made 2 big mistakes, today’s labour would have produced me with a return just shy of £200. I made one mistake after a couple of hours being rather aggressive and overconfident. The second was daft as I see a big bet being dragged down the prices (easy money, right?). Once I jumped in front at £14 a tick it got swallowed up with a massive lay leaving me high and dry.. these things happen, although it was additional risk I didn’t need to take!
