Do you ever have times where you are really busy but seem to get very little done. I reminds me of the song lyric “busy doing nothing working the whole day through, trying to find lots of things not to do”. It kind of sums up my life in the last few months. I seem to have had no time to do anything but I seem to have very little to show for it. Ok so I guess a house in Spain is not nothing and having the cat back but spread betting wise I seem to be getting nowhere fast. I need to change this and get back to the sort of time I was spending spread betting when I started this blog.


Over the last few months I don’t feel like I’ve learnt much except how to lose more money. Something that I seem to have quite a knack for. Maybe I should package it up, “how to lose money and go broke slowly”, I wonder would anyone buy it? If you’re interested please do let me know, I am an expert at losing money don’t you know. Joking aside I need to give myself a kick up the arse. I need to focus more on trading and get back to the real reason I started this blog, to make money spread betting. How I will achieve this is yet to come to light but I have learnt some things not to do, which hopefully can only be a good thing. I started my trading plan topic over on the forum but have yet to put more time into it. My plan for over Christmas is to make some free time to work on my trading plan and finish re-reading Robbie Burns Naked Trader book. The aim is to start the new year as I mean to go on and hopefully start to make money from my spread bets.


As you may or may not know, tomorrow I am off to Spain to sign for the house so I will not be about until the middle of next week. I’m sure I’ll get time to update with my Christmas blog post but I’m not sure when it will be. The new year should hold some new surprises on spread betting beginner, so keep checking back for the latest news.


Until next time,
“May the markets be with you!”
