As stated before i'll be enjoying this WC from the telly. Well I actually don't have a TV. Or I have a TV but no receiver. I do run a appleTV so I can stream stuff from my laptop but thats basically it. There is so much shit on TV in general that I haven't bothered to get any channels for it. Its for these occasions though that i'd really like to be able to watch the games from the comfort of the sofa.
Tradingwise the World Cup shouldn't interfere with the tennis due to time difference. And the tour being in Europe at the moment. I can't really remember if the European
Championship 2 years ago made any impact on the liquidity which is my biggest concern.
French Open was for me not great at all. I found it very very difficult to handle the extreme latency against the market maker which caught me a lot. I did turn a profit though, not what I probably have set in mind going into the tournament. I tend to not have any expectations, but after a good US open and a decent Australian Open, I was therefor a bit disappointed.
Having expectations usually just sets you up for dissapointments so its better to not expect anything than the unexpected really. Cause life never turnsout like you thought it would and this goes for gambling as well. Just work super hard on whatever you want to achieve and be humble. Eventually good things will happen.
