They do say that good things come to those who wait and for our subscribers who stuck by me this month, that certainly rings true.
At "half-time" of the month, it's fair to say that a 9pt loss and just one winner from thirteen picks wasn't a great return and I did get more than a couple of less then positive emails about it! 9 picks, 6 more winners and 19.86pts profit (despite a couple of hefty Rule 4 deductions) later and May has become the latest profitable month for SotD, the 11th in a row!
Those of you who have stuck by the methodology, which hasn't changed at all, now approach the final three picks of the month with a healthy 7.61pts profit for the month, safe in the knowledge that the worst result possible now is an ROI of 18.44%!
