Back From The Brink


Since Last Post P/L: £134.23
Monthly P/L: £304.01

What a relief! Getting through the weekend with a healthy profit and finishing January with a respectable total has given me a feeling of sheer joy. It could easily have gone tits up but I played my cards right with the cricket and escaped with a solid gain. A 4% growth for the month is a lot less than the 10% I was hoping for, but this game is a marathon rather than a sprint and it's all about grinding out results.
.
Here's my latest results:
.
Cricket
South Africa v West Indies : £139.68
.
Soccer
Leicester v Crystal Palace : £5.45
.
Now some of you might be wondering why I've bothered to dabble on the soccer markets yet again (after so many failed attempts) and the answer is that the kind people at Soccer Mystic have provided me with a trial of their product. Despite my small loss, the first signs were encouraging so I intend to give the software a good going over on Sunday. I have a lot of faith in the guys that brought us Bet Angel so I'm sure there's a way to use the program to turn a profit, though the hard bit will be finding out how.

Form is Temporary, Class is permanent and all that!

Well done!
