Not great deal to report on the trading front. My position in 3i Infrastructure stopped out at 116 giving my a whopping £1.31 profit. When you figure the position had been open for around 3 months it works out to pretty much £0 with the rolling charges. Still at least it’s not loss.


I finally got some time today to summarize where we are up to with developing a new spread betting strategy over on the forum. Take a look and post a reply if you have anything to add or suggest. If your new to the forum then please register and join in the discussion. I’ve noticed we’ve had some new members on the forum of late. I wish I could say they were all genuine but, it seems a few of them are spammers. Still they’ve received and instant ban over my no SPAM policy. I don’t mind people linking to other sites etc as long as it’s relevant to spread betting. Then again I guess some of the drugs one person was trying to link too might come in useful if your stressed about your spread betting not going well, and I’m sure Ugg boots are not relevant to spread betting. Still there only wasting there own time. If you spot any SPAM on the forum before I do please let me know. The filters I have tend to catch most of it but you never know.


I think the forum is the reason behind the site being slow. I’m not 100% sure why yet but I’m going to speak to my hosting provider again today about some of the error messages I have in my logs to get the issues resolved. With the main page of the site having a feed from the forum this would certainly affect the speed of the main page and the forum. The rest of the site should be fine and to be honest I’ve never noticed any speed issues with any of the other pages. Please let me know if you have noticed otherwise.


No new trades today again. I took a look earlier and there is nothing that fits my strategy. So I playing the waiting game until the right opportunity comes along. I think it’s a game I’m starting to get good at.


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