stanzione

Hey everyone. So as promised here's the first installment of videos looking at some of my bad trades this year. A great opportunity to reflect on poor decision making and ways not to do things in the future. A good habit to get into, something I don't do enough myself but plan to going forward. [...]

Its a difficult time in the market at the moment. One minute your making easy gains every day, watching your balance rise, the next day you've lost everything you've just raked in and are left with less than you started. This year has started well, my bank is growing and i'm up just under 10% [...]

It's been a positive start to my third year now and i'm starting to look at adding to my investment into Spreadbetting now after two successfully profitable years behind me. I'm hoping to have a more clinical year in 2014. In 2012 my trading plan was riddled with mistakes, failing to keep emotions out of [...]

I've posted an up to date copy of my trading record tonight taking me up right up until the present day. So far in 2013 i've achieved a 52.48% return. Lessened slightly by the fact I have topped up my investment into this project to a nice even £2000, previously being at £1849. Why? Well, [...]

    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 [...]

New Equity Highs By Chris Chillingworth After yesterdays post where I saw my worst ever drawdown of 7% I can happily report that today my account saw new equity highs as it rose from £2218 to £2447, beating my previous equity high of £2404 only 5 days ago. How fast things can change when your [...]

Increasing my capital today to £1749

If you've been following my blog you'll be aware that i've made some rather good money in the last month or so and seen my Return on Investment (ROI) rise from 20% to around 49% in that same time. I've also recently been raking a bit of extra funds together to trade with and increase [...]

A new 3D TV? A holiday? Home Gym equipment? Just a small selection of the things I could go out and buy if I closed my open positions and took all my profits today. My Return on Investment broke the 42% mark today and i've managed to turn under £1500 into £2100 in almost 4 [...]

$DLTR falling to $15.00?

I'm currently working on doing another video in the next few days going over my recently closed and open positions again as a sort of update on how things are going. I'll no doubt shout about it on here once it's up for viewing. In the meantime I wanted to talk about $DLTR (Dollar Tree [...]

Is Diversification that important?

By Chris Chillingworth A month or so ago a fellow Spreadbettor emailed me after taking a look at my Trade History which I feature here on my blog. He asked me the question "are you concerned about a market crash bearing in mind your 80% bullish right now on your account?". It really got me [...]
