My Starting Trades

Ok, so I opened 2 trades on 27th April. The first is with Aegis Group, a media and digital marketing group. Looking at the chart it’s been trending long for the last 6 months. It’s also affordable for me to place a stop loss on the 100 day moving average and trade at £1 per [...]

Trading again!

It’s been a long time but after a long long time out of the spreadtrading game i’ve returned to the fold. Where have I been? Well, back when I was last trading me and my wife had our second child. As most people with kids know, they take up a lot of time. Well, now [...]

My long position moved up another 29 points today taking my points total up to +93 on that trade. Great Portland dropped another point today and both my positions fell again.

Need to Learn to Diversify

The Spreadbetting Rollercoaster

As a wierd looking young girl once said to me via my television set….”wowzers”. My week has gone from bad to worse. In fact taking a step back and looking at May and June my profits have been steadily plummetting towards nothingness. Despite this, i’m still positive things are going to come good, although i’d [...]
