Since I finished last week at more or less break even on this trial and started afresh on Monday morning with a new £10,000 trading bank in IG Index, and a commitment to trading at £10 per pip level stakes, I’ve decided to reset the trial bank so we can see precisely what’s achievable with this service.
Of course, as seems to be the way with a lot of services that get trialled on Cash Master, we certainly know how to ‘break ’em’ don’t we?
Here’s my results for Monday and Tuesday:
|23/09/2014||Spot FX NZD/USD||10||-£88.00|
|23/09/2014||EU Stocks 50||10||-£310.00|
|23/09/2014||Daily FX Interest for 1 day NZD/USD||–||£5.70|
|23/09/2014||Long Interest for 22/09/14||–||-£16.25|
|22/09/2014||US Tech 100||10||-£321.00|
|22/09/2014||Adjustment for dividend in EU Stocks 50||–||£23.00|
|22/09/2014||US Tech 100||10||-£344.00|
|22/09/2014||Long Interest for 19/09/14 to 21/09/14||–||-£10.12|
Yes, I’ve lost over two grand in two days. Yes, it’s real money, and yes, it smarts a bit.
Still, I’m a big boy and I know that all forms of trading (bar one) involve risk, so I wouldn’t have traded if I weren’t prepared for a worse case scenario.
Adam is mortified. He’s decided to take a couple of days off to clear his head and have a look at what’s happened. I suppose it’s a shock for him too, seeing as for the last few years he’s rarely had a losing week.
Has he lost his mojo?
We shall see.
Next update will probably be Thursday or Friday, depending on when Adam decides he’s ready for round two….
