Three placers from six isn’t too bad, but it looks worse on paper when all three could only manage to finish third. The week pretty much summed up my 2018 as a whole : each time I’ve looked like turning a corner, I run into a another brick wall. 2018 has been the most difficult / frustrating / trying / poor * (*delete as applicable) year since we started this SotD venture 7 years ago.
We’ve made profit every year and we’ll just about make profit again this year, but nowhere near my self-imposed 50pt target this time. I’ll just be glad to get the 2018 monkey off my back and start 2019 with a fresh slate. There is, of course, the small matter of five more picks for this year to come first and rest assured, I’ll be doing my best to try and grab some late winners to boost the meagre profits!
