On the 23rd Feb 2008 I stuck £10 in my Betfair account and set off on my trading journey. Three years on, I find it drawing to a close, at least in its current form.
Over half my profit over those three years was achieved in the first year. Since then it has been downhill to the point where, now, I'm just treading water. That's not to say I haven't been successful. I've bought a brand new car and paid off what was left of my mortgage thanks to trading. It was never meant to be a full time occupation though. Right from the start, it was meant to be a hobby; something to bring in a few extra pounds each month. It actually performed much better than expected, but as time has progressed, I have found myself putting in full time hours.
