Just to get a sense of how annoyingly that fuck up was it’s just here on the chart, and even more so I was planning to ditch at the end of October in the pump towards earnings.
So I’m down £60 and it’s probably going to be green tomorrow.
On the plus side I’m out of MARK Need to fight the temptation to jump back in now.
So yeah I can’t be the first to do this.

If Yes followed by:
Have you had your coffee for today? You meant to do a limit sell instead right? Let me just change that now.
