Cheers for the good words Matt! I have a tee-shirt that says “If things get better with age, then I am approaching magnificence!” and while I might be a whiz at maths, stats being my speciality, and pretty neat at the psychological side of investing, my main failing, like most older people who’ve only done cerebral rather than physical work, is that I’m not up to the mechanics of things. Any help in that quarter would certainly benefit all Geegeez members, and speed things up of course! I often benefit from Matt’s advice, by the way, like reading Malcolm Gladwell’s “Blink” – wow! – and I’m now halfway through “Outliers” with “The Tipping Point” waiting its turn on the shelf – and all for pennies from Amazon!
I’ll have a trawl through all the posts and picks and get a P/L sorted for the new stuff, plus a “best outsider month” for Jumps courses. This will require looking at every outsider win – not just mine – at every UK and Ireland course – which perhaps could be done mechanically – then the number of possible bets in each of those races to figure out profits and losses.
George, thanks for your continuing support in my endeavours, and I also love “Alison”, although you’ll notice there’s only one ‘L’ in my wife’s name! 😀
