All Black For New Zealand?

Daily P/L: £73.93
Monthly P/L: £480.17
Another month ends and I'm very happy that I've been able to grow my trading bank by 20%. It was slow going at times but it just shows the importance of being patient and waiting for the right conditions to come along. The end of June also signifies the half way point of 2007 and it's a good time for me to evaluate my performance so far. By scanning my records I can see that since January I've been able to chalk up a profit of £2376 after commission, which all bodes well for the future but I'll try not to get too far ahead of myself. The most positive point is that I now have four sports (Rugby Union, Cricket, Darts & Golf) that I feel very comfortable in trading and it makes such a difference when you have confidence in every decision you make.
Australia v New Zealand
Have the wheels fallen off the the All Black bus? I don't think so. They may have let a 15-6 lead slip but I sense this defeat will put them in the right frame of mind for the World Cup and it's definitely not good news to anyone they come up against in the next few months. The fact is they're still the best side in the world (by a decent margin) but it doesn't mean they're unbeatable. The Aussies showed today that by taking the game to them it's possible to score points but stopping the New Zealand team from scoring more is the hard part. Stirling Mortlock had another great game in the centre which reemphasises to everyone how good he's become - I just wish he had a Welsh Grandmother! From a trading point of view it was a hassle free match - I got in and out of the market at the right times and in the end I finished with a profit of £73.93.

Hi Rockmore,

Not sure I follow - what screenshot would you like?

Thanks John.

Things are going well but I'd like to go 12 months of making steady profits before getting too excited.

Sorry to hear about Teabaghead - nightmare!

All the best,
