In a week I have made a profit of £0.31.  If I can keep this up I will have a total of £116.16 after a year, that’s equivalent to 16.16% AER if it was in a savings account!.  So while 31p may sound insignificant, as the saying goes, ‘take care of the pennies and the pounds look after themselves’.  But as I said at the start of this post, I have been a little bit busier than I expected to be in this first week, (I’ll explain why in my next post) so I don’t expect  to keep up this rate of return for the full year.  If nothing else, I am sure there will be a few losses at least over the year.

Next time I’ll expand on my strategy a little more and explain why I think I have already made a couple of mistakes by deviating from it.
