Yet again this question pops up in my head after this morning, for the one millionth time!
Hadnt planned on trading this morning, but couldnt help watching the end of India v Saffers, 9 wickets down, 15 overs left, what test cricket is all about.
Surprised India were so short given Morkel had already seen off near 30 odds balls when I turned on the TV, easy trade when youve got the balls (one wicket is game over like), wasnt worried by the bowling in the slightest, then BAM, wicket goes, kaput.
So, I end with a 27c loss, instead of maybe a €50 each side win, but I was backing myself to be right (if I was nervous I would have greened), again - do you green without questioning or do you back yourself and let it run.
I give this loads of thought on a weekly basis, I still dont know which is right and which is wrong you know. You green, they draw, youre saying why didnt I let it run. You let it run, it loses, youre thinking why didnt I green.
I suppose the most important bit is getting rid of the liability and then worry about everything else later..
