After the other days piece: How did these chumps raise £5.5 miliion !?! I saw a friends link which I thought I’d share with you. After a tough trading day it might be easier to ask ourselves why do we bother with trading? Why do we bother to put in all the graft and all […]

I was reading this tale of woe in my headlines at the weekend. I remember this incident and chump. What I didn’t realise is that I had a weak connection to them. When I saw the initial media posts a good few years back about how a private trader had spent £200,000 on champagne on […]

I usually am not even at my desk on the afternoon of NFP day.  I see all the Financial media and Twitter-sphere working themselves into a frenzy over the NFP number and quite frankly I can’t be arsed with it!  I’m not a massive fan of trading NFP – certainly not putting orders in front […]

You’re a big man…   Apologies for the off-topic post but I thought ‘what the hell whilst the trading is dull’. I’ve mentioned that Brian Lund writes a good trading blog on Stocktwits and that you should follow it.
