This month the family and I managed to move into our newly built home (18 months of renting, selling, negotiating, and that was JUST with the wife!!!!) have come and finally passed….. We then decided to have almost 3 weeks on holiday; BLISS.
So, being the ‘part time professional trader’ that I am, we (sorry SHE) decided we would go on a cruise in the Americas. All this is great until you find out that the internet does not work off shore, and that maritime internet is about $40 per day and yet is more ‘temperamental’ than a ‘temperamental’ internet connection. FML!!!
I had managed to place 80% of my Ultimate bets in some dodgy bandit town in Honduras, yet supping beers in an internet café did take me back 15 years!
I had flu for 4 days, yet could not tell the ship otherwise we would have been quarantined until next year. Flu thankfully gone, a hacking cough left and pitiful messages from the bank manager to return to.
My monthly trades have not changed too much. The one match which appears to have really stitched me up this month was Real Madrid v Celta Vigo….I lost about 12 points in that match alone!
Thankfully, all of the beatings we receive are simply making my Ultimate balances hover and not drop too drastically. I know that just 4 matches in this last couple of months have cost me 50+ points, so I am confidence in knowing if they have gone the other way, then I may have afforded the ‘Maritime Internet’ whist on holiday!
Overall, another profitable month with Ultimate, and another addition to my portfolio (New Leagues) with results over the past seasons that look amazing.
I am already thinking about next season, and will be tweaking my Ultimate portfolio, to make it more balanced, but it’s getting there.
Trading seminar bets have again struggled, yet my account is looking better than most as is only 24% down. I have duly noted all of Ian’s responses and reiterations about how the 2015 Seminar bets (£500 to £37,000 in 4 years) started poorly and hardly moved in the first year. His confidence is good to hear, yet as this confidence is backed by statistical data does prevent ‘PANIC BUTTONS’ being hit!
The losses are becoming easier to take, so I can’t bloody wait to celebrate the wins!!!
Month 7 Ultimate results:-
You will see that I have added another system ‘FALDO’. The ‘NEW’ Leagues have returned really good results this season, so having looked around my filters, I inserted this system (LTD and LAY Away) as both are consistent with each other, and have been for the past 4 seasons. I was going to add to next season, but why wait!
The balance of the systems is getting better, with 5 in the MAIN leagues and 4 in the NEW leagues.
