Good evening to anyone who is bored enough to read this! My name is Ian and I've created this blog as a method to try and give myself some sort of accountability in my quest to make the transition from a crap trader/investor, into someone who can actually make a decent pot of cash to hopefully one day pay off my mortgage. This is a long way off right now, but from small acorns and all that! I'm not exactly sure how often I'll post updates on here, it will either be a weekly thing regardless of any buys/sells made, or just as and when I make such decisions. If you find your way over to the Trades page of my blog you can check back on any positions I currently hold, and positions I have held in the past along with any profits or losses. The chart is a mixture from both a SIPP and a Stocks & Shares ISA. I will give a bit of a background in due course about trades I have made in the past soon. You may notice more than a hint of Robbie Burns aka. The Naked Trader in format of blog and theory behind deals made, this is because for a beginner I believe his website and books are the best place to start and would recommend anyone pick up his book "The Naked Trader vol 4" as it the easiest to understand literature I've certainly found.
I'm new to this blogging lark so the format etc. may change in due course as I play around with the settings and get used to it.
Cheers for now,
Confessions of a Crap Trader is a blog following a regular investor trying to make profit via the London Stock Exchange. Follow his journey as he attempts to hopefully one day pay his mortgage off in full!
