.....and so it might be for America. I' m starting to think that the idea of an ST top around the end of month, might be wrong. It is possible that before experiencing a true substained bounce we go 10% lower from here both in America and Europe. In that case my previous expectations would be very wrong. And it is very possible...........trading this market is difficult, but with a good patience, waiting on the sideline, eventually everything clarifies

Hi 12spx......no, I don' t play padel, not attracted by it. They have built a padel court at the tennis club and I only stop by for a few minutes when I see the twenty years old girls playing in order to refresh my eyes, because for the rest I remain a tennis addicted. After a long time when I played basically with just one opponent who was a friend of mine since when we were kids, currently I play in another club where there are much tougher opponents and so far I just got to the point of taking one set and leaving to them the second. My phisical form has weakened and I' m slowly recovering, losing weight and running faster. As for the technique, that has always remained, but it may be not enough if you play opponents that are on the court 4 or 5 times a week, while I am just in the week end. However, I was born a tennis player and I hardly see myself doing something else....

one of the best memories I have is of a tournament I played when I was close to my thirties. From 12 to 19 I played a lot and I was in a club with many other people so that I had several opponents and was used to change opponent which thing benefited my tennis a lot. Then I took a pause till 26 and then started to play again, but this time with just an opponent who was in the same club I was and who was a friend of mine since the times we were kids. He also came from a long pause so that meeting him after a long time we told each other we could spend a couple of hours in the week end on the tennis court. Obviously playing the same opponent is not a great idea if you want to achieve some kind of results, but you have the advantage that you don' t have to call one or another one because you know that you have a fixed opponent who will be always on the court. So that our lazyness prevailed on anything else. But I liked to partecipate to one tournament in Summer despite I was not trained for heavy matches. So that, close to my thirties, I subscribed to a tournament designed for those with a series C rank, but was opened also to those who had not a national rank, like myself. I went there with no preparation at all and found the second seed who was a C2 a very good rank as there were maybe 500 in the whole country with such a rank. And this unknown that I was, took the first set. As soon as the people watching the other courts came to know that the second seed was a set under, they all reunited on the ramps aside of our court. It became a crowdy match and unfortunately eventually the ''rubber wall'' in front of me who was able to rebate every missile I trew at him, won the second and the third and the match. I paid the lack of a serious training and the phisical form that was not at my own top playing just in the week end. But hey, he was a C2.......and he was close to be thrown out by an unknown, untrained, vagant mine.

now I' m playing another kind of matches, in front of me the stock market. And there, I' m not the best in town. But being part of the 2% who are able to take money from the stock market without leaving their own to it, is already a success. And hopefully, if no other communist sewer rat comes out with another pandemic or war, my trading revenues should be not that bad..........
