One reason why you may regret posting this is that you will now be faced with intrusive questions like the following:

Were you being mentored by TD from November 2009?
It's just that he talked about having had a room now for 8 months, I think it was.
(Perhaps you were a guinea pig).


Can't help but notice that you had some bigger losses in the 2nd half of that month-ish, than in the 1st, which seems to have eaten into account-growth.

Of course I am happy for you but the reason I asked you not to post your statements was because I just think it makes for unrealistic expectations from people that don't understand the game.

I hope he doesn't. Yet again - excelent results. I had a closer look and hope BB will excuse my curiosity.

From £2,784.63 on 2/11/2009 to £64,851.11 on 21/6/2010 +2229%

from £64,851.11 on 21/6/2010 to £52,531.66 on 1/12/2010 -19%

from £52,531.66 on 1/12/2010 to £69,115.65 on 1/1/2011 +32%

First 7 months look amazing. December 2010 very good. Just wondering what happened from 21/6/2010 to 1/12/2010 - bit of a drop there -19%.

PS I've tried my best calculating profit/loss. Appologies if there are any mistakes.

Thanks BlackBison,
As a matter of interest, may I ask what prompted the switch from IB to Spread Co?

Yeah - good point. Why change it?

If you turned £2,784.63 into £64,851.11 in less than seven months, at that rate if you stayed with them you could have had 1.44 million already.

This isn't uncommon for a typical retail client to do this. Although it is impressive none the less. I don't know how what £70k is like for you, but i would be risking less. Your P&L swings are too crazy.
