Not what I was hoping for but not the worst performance either. Funny game this trading lark, its such a fine balance between managing risk and attaining profit. I could easily make much more but that would be at the expense of my trading account and my health! When I increase my risk profile my stress level seems to increase at the same rate.
I'm confident that percentages will increase over time and the for time being I am content with beating the bank. This month, I received 10p interest on 12k thats sitting in my savings account - laughable returns so 8.2% from my trading account for the month doesn't seem so bad.
