Took a day off today to go into town for the Investor & Trader summit, run by Marketspreads.
David McWilliams is the chair and it looks quite interesting. Peter Brown, who runs the IIFT trading course I'm doing, is also a speaker as is Charlie Fell from the Irish Times.
I've been to these sort of things before and I usually find that you learn a few bits and bob.
The IIFT course, by the way, is really enjoyable and I've learned quite a bit in the first two weeks. Can't wait to put some of it to practice but I've decided to open up a demo account again just to try out some of the new strategies before going live with bigger money.
I've no open positions with my live account at the moment - things are still quite funny and it's hard to make a decision about which way the markets going.
Otherwise, I've not much to report.
On a non related note, a mate of mine is giving me a car this weekend :-) I drove a motorbike for years but it's high time I learned to drive a car so I'm looking forward to something new although I am a tiny bit nervous. I have a bet of €150 with the wife - I told her I'd drive down in the car and pick her up from work at Christmas. She says I wont. So I've a couple of months to learn to drive as I sure as hell ain't giving her a ton and half!
