Eagles take flight

A perk of trading is the extra time available to go and watch events.  The basketball last night between Newcastle Eagles and London Capital was our evening entertainment.  With London Capital being bottom of the league this in itself would present some good trading opportunities. Being at the match, it was one to enjoy rather than trade!  Only watching basketball on television previously meant I was pretty excited to view it live.  It really was fast paced and the scoring manic.  It felt a little like the trading today with the many markets due to the extra race cards.  The races were going off every 5 minutes, which meant you really had to pick which ones to actively trade so that you have enough information about the market but in long enough to make a trade.  Eked out another positive profit today - hopefully on the right track.

Final score: Newcastle Eagles 112 - 66 London Capital
