A cracking day for the balance with a profit of €69.55, in fact, that's the best day so far in this particular challenge.
While I should be pleased (and I am for the most part), I do have a niggling sense of guilt about two things. Firstly, I let one race go in-running. I really need to stop doing this as it can spell disaster.
The other thing I done which I shouldn't was chase a losing trade with a bigger stake. I got away with it but if it had of went wrong, I would have been looking at a severe red book on that race. I'm trying to stay disciplined and going forward, I know I shouldn't open another trade unless my old one is complete - for better or worse.
Overall though, I can't say I'm not pleased as it pushes me well ahead of target once again. I got an email during the week suggesting that my targets may be too low but I know that I won't be around the computer during the day much when the winter comes in so I don't want to re-assess just yet. It's days like this that build the bank and allow me some space when I don't have time to trade.
Little and often soon adds up
