Well, not the return from holiday I was hoping for! Matt's pick on Monday was beaten, as were my five from Tuesday onwards, taking the current barren run for the three of us (Steve's the third amigo) to nine and putting August's chances of making profit in severe jeopardy.
It now looks like we're going to need at least four, if not five winners from the remaining ten selections this month and whilst it's a tall order, it can be done, it has been done and I'll be trying my hardest to get it done!
2017 has still been a great year for us and the overall picture is still very healthy, we just need to ride out this summer storm.
PS I don't often compare our service with others, but somebody did tell me last night that Pricewise is 82pts down since the start of May, so things could be worse.
