In 2012 I finished the year with a 2.7% return on my investment. About as much as you might get from a bank savings account if your lucky. On the face of things it wasn't really a success because I at one point saw highs of 40% return around the end of summer [...]

18 months into my trading and I've heard all about the importance of having a trading strategy, keeping to the rules and not trading off emotion etc. This is all well and good, but I often think you have to experience the bad to appreciate the good and recently I have been experiencing some bad [...]

By Chris Chillingworth Ever since I started Spreadbetting in 2011 i've had a number of questions about strategies, psychology and risk.
