All by myself, alone.

Yesterday's post listed how I might start my trading career, if I had my time again. Thanks to gundulf, a very knowledgeable and successful part time trader, another very valid point was raised. Gundulf is very rare in that he has no desire or design for his own trading to become anything more than the part time hobby it is. Specifically, there is one good reason for that. As a full time, professional sports trader you will spend 95% of your working day alone. That suits some people down to the ground, it doesn't suit gundulf.
Other than a few Skype chats, sat in a room with only sports commentators, statistical research and or the radio for company is how most days will pan out.
Overcoming the psychological aspects of trading is one of the biggest battles any trader will face, and spending all day alone is another massive part of the psychology involved. It should never be underestimated.

Sheff Utd v Exeter is the only draw pick for today, more money needed pre KO.

Today's dutched scores are;
Everton v Man - 1-1, 1-2, 0-1, 0-2, 2-2
Chelsea v Arsenal - 2-1, 3-1, 2-2, 2-0, 1-1
Sunderland v Villa - 1-1, 2-1, 1-2, 0-1, 2-0
Wigan v Fulham - 0-0, 1-0, 0-1, 1-1.
