€180 loss :-(

A good lot of markets including some commodities rallied yesterday and today, partly in anticipation of Greece's vote on their new bailout. Whatever the reasons for the oil surge, it wasn't good for my trade and I hit my stop loss today.

Got out for a loss of €180, but that's the way it goes sometimes. Still well up on commodities overall but it still hurts to take a loss!


  1. Dear Wayne.

    What are you using for trading stocks? And do you know if there is any software out there that has a trading ladder for the stock market like in Betfair?

    Thank you, enjoying your blog.

  2. Thanks,

    I'm actually spread betting them rather than buying or selling with a broker.

    I mainly use as they are Irish based and very accessible.

    I haven't come across any ladder style interfaces for the stock market yet - let me know if you see one.
