As I’m sure you will have noticed by now the re-design work on the website is underway. At the moment due to time constraints I am having to do the work in stages but I should get there eventually. It’s a bit of a radical overhaul I know but hopefully you will agree it’s for the best. It’s by no means finished yet and this is just the beginning. It’s very much a work in progress and will be a while yet before it’s complete. I never knew how much time and effort went into designing a website and to be honest I’m glad this is not something that I do for a living. Hopefully you can bear with me while I make these changes.


As far as spread betting goes it’s been quite quiet for me just lately. With feeling almost over exposed to the market I am not looking to take on any new positions at the moment. I am merely monitoring exiting ones and adjusting any stops as dictated by my strategy. At the moment I am in the fortunate position of all my open spread bets being in varying levels of profit. The only question is how long will it last. The are showing a paper profit but with the stop losses still set further away all that profit could easily fade away.


It’s times like this when spread betting gets tough for me. I feel like I want to be doing more or that I should be doing more but I know from past experience if I act upon my itchy fingers it will cost me. So for now the order of the day is doing nothing. It’s funny that I find it so hard to do nothing. After all the goal is to spread bet for a living some day, do I think if I’m only spread betting that I will find it easier to do nothing? Probably not, I guess I need something else to draw my attention when there is no spread betting to be done. I guess it’s a good job I have this website to work on.


I’m sure I’ve probably asked this before but If anyone would like to guest post on this blog or has any other content they would like to add please do get in touch. Even if you just want to share your own spread betting journey so far, I would love to hear from you. If we share our experiences together it makes us feel less alone in the scary world of spread betting, or at least that’s my theory.


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