Bound To Happen Some Time

I had my first loss for the month today. Always disappointing when a nice winning streak comes to an end. An inevitable consequence of what we do.

I lost £20 trying something new in the football markets. Out of the possible contenders, I happened to pick the match with no goals - Aston Villa v West Ham. Even then, I lost half my liability simple because I got my sums wrong and didn't place as much insurance on the 0-0 as I should have.

A lesson to be learnt there which is always a good thing. Even so, the exit strategy, which is always my week point when it comes to football markets as the gambler in me tends to take over, worked well.

A losing start but I saw enough to try it again. Only time will tell if it is profitable long term.
