Week 23 #WOTD – Pharma beating the banks

Pharma is up and banking is down this week. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) had a stellar week with a 4% gain, however they were only on 0.1% before this so the 4.1% year to date does not move them from 17th. While AstraZeneca (AZN) were close behind for the week with 3.9% gain, moving them from 10thContinue reading “Week 23 #WOTD – Pharma beating the banks”

Why? babypips have provided me some great knowledge and learning onContinue reading “How are you spending your time?”

Global Running Day

Today is Global Running Day, the first Wednesday in June every year! I love my running and ran this morning, yet I did not know this annual celebration was in the calendar.
