My Trading Day ~ Thursday 21st July 2011

July 21st, 2011

10:35am. I was up early this morning and left Southwold at 8 o’clock to travel down here to Chelmsford to sort out my new house. Two separate broadband lines have been put in and the builders are already in doing some renovations – including a new study/office for me above the triple garage. I am [...]

My Trading Day ~ Wednesday 20th July 2011

July 20th, 2011

10:10am. What was going to be a quite bit of supper last night, turned into a very long evening after meeting a few friends in The Lord Nelson – we went on to play Poker at a friend’s house until 2am this morning. As a result, I did have a bit of a ‘lie-in’ this [...]

My Trading Day ~ Tuesday 19th July 2011

July 19th, 2011

9:55am. I got back here to the cottage (in Suffolk) just after midnight so I was not really interested in getting up very early this morning ! I wandered downstairs just before 9 o’clock to have a bit of breakfast and I also switched this laptop on to answer some emails that had come in [...]

July 14th, 2011

6:20pm. I spent yesterday trying to sort out some broadband (to no avail) but did manage to watch a chart for my “Trade With A Day Job” using a friends internet connection (next door) starting a bit later than usual at 6 o’clock but after a few hours there was no signals so I called [...]

My Trading Day ~ Tuesday 12th July 2011

July 12th, 2011

I was up and on the road at 7 o’clock this morning, heading off to Essex to sort out the new house. I did quickly check to see if broadband coverage had been restored but nothing yet – and my Vodafone Dongle is less than reliable up here as mobile phone coverage is also extremely [...]

My Trading Day ~ Monday 11th July 2011

July 11th, 2011

I had a very busy weekend at Silverstone but I had to cut off the relaxing a bit earlier than I thought, and yesterday lunchtime I had a rushed meeting with a person who needed to sell their house very quickly, so I hurried back to Essex to sort it out. I always find if [...]

Non-Farm-Payrolls ~ Friday 8th July 2011

July 8th, 2011

As you will be aware – today is ‘Employment Announcement Day’ in the U.S. (Non-Farm-Payrolls) so there is NO trading for me, although having said that – the markets this morning are acting remarkably normal, so there maybe opportunities for a few trades. I have just totted up my trading score for my “Evening” trading [...]

My Trading Day ~ Thursday 7th July 2011

July 7th, 2011

It was quite a late night – I got back here just after midnight, but I was up fairly early this morning – and installed in my newly refurbished study overlooking the sea at 8am. I did cycle to the paper shop earlier, at 7 o’clock and called in to the bakers on the way [...]
