December and 2017 in general ended with more of a whimper than a bang, as I failed to find you one last winner that would have seen this be the most successful year in terms of points profit for SotD since inception 6 yrs ago.
That said, we only had three picks, of which two were runners-up, so I'm not too despondent at drawing a blank. We still finished the month and the year well ahead of the bookies, with both the monthly and yearly strike rates (28.57% & 28.23% respectively) bearing very close resemblance to our historic 27.75% ratio.
And as for narrowly missing out on as record points haul? I'm still claiming a moral victory, as the record was acheived when we used to do SotD 7 days a week, so this year's ROI is better!
And finally before the results overview, all of Team SotD (Chris, Steve & Matt) would like to not only thank each of you for your continued support, encouragement and loyalty, but we'd also like to take the opportunity of wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy, Healthy and ultimately Wealthy New Year.
