Oct 30 2009

Just as we thought, yesterday's strength turned out to be just a bounce. All trades worked well today, with beautiful QID setup which was explained in details starting at 11:00.

[08:37] {_Les__} Bonjour Messieurs et Madames ;)
[08:39] {Raven} interesting
[08:39] {Threei} good morning
[08:39] {Raven} T:)
[08:39] {Threei} R :)
[08:47] {_Les__} Didn't get to ask yesterday Vad. HGSI. U said trailing to .35, so effectively trailing for 1 point's movement. You saw trending good for potentially one point's movement. How?
[08:47] {Threei} huh?
[08:47] {Threei} original stop was under .30
[08:47] {_Les__} Just before system crash
[08:47] {Threei} trailing to under .35 is 5 cents
[08:47] {_Les__} Ah, that was it?
[08:48] {Threei} OK... I don't think we are on the same page
[08:48] {Threei} what does stop trailing have to do with target?
[08:49] {Threei} stop controls risk,
[08:49] {_Les__} I was watching it push through $20.35, from $19.30 (or something like that). Given lack of talk following this call, I thought U were trailing for a full point
[08:49] {Threei} at some point HGSI made a new low of the range solid enough to tighten risk
[08:50] {Threei} so that was a call for riske decrease
[08:50] {Threei} which has no correlation with target
[08:50] {Threei} so I am not sure what to make of the question framed this way
[08:51] {_Les__} sorry looking thru yesterday's blog for trade
[08:51] {Threei} I just don't want any misunderstanding about the meaning of the call and comments
[08:52] {Threei} any of those will lead to incorrect action
[08:57] {_Les__} My fault. I reviewed the log. I was cut out of further blog feed after your call "let's trail .35). When you said at 10:19 HGSI worth a try @ .41, I thought you wanted to trail to $20.35. I was impressed by your powers of prescience!
[08:58] {_Les__} HGSI topped out @ $20.33 @ 11:10. I realise now that I was no longer in the chat room
[08:58] {Threei} Les... I don't think you understand the call correctly
[08:58] {Threei} When you said at 10:19 HGSI worth a try @ .41, I thought you wanted to trail to $20.35.
[08:58] {Threei} this doesn't make sense to me
[08:59] {Threei} "worth a try at .41" - means entry
[08:59] {_Les__} that i understand
[08:59] {Threei} how does it correspond with " I thought you wanted to trail to $20.35"?? :)
[08:59] {_Les__} then you said "let's trail HGSI to .35"
[09:00] {Threei} trail refers to a stop
[09:00] {Threei} trailing stop
[09:00] {_Les__} so entry at .41. Immediately enter a trailing stop at .35. That was the call was it
[09:00] {Threei} no
[09:00] {Threei} entry at .41,
[09:00] {Threei} original stop under .30
[09:01] {Threei} [10:19] {Threei} HGSI worth a try
[09:01] {Threei} [10:19] {Threei} .41
[09:01] {Threei} [10:19] {Threei} stop under .30
[09:02] {_Les__} [10:25] {Threei} let's trail HGSI to .35
[09:02] {Threei} that's follow up 6 mionutes later
[09:02] {_Les__} so means what?
[09:02] {_Les__} .5 cent scalp?
[09:02] {Threei} [10:19] {Threei} HGSI worth a try
[09:02] {Threei} [10:19] {Threei} .41
[09:02] {Threei} [10:19] {Threei} stop under .30
[09:03] {Threei} [10:24] {Threei} market sharp drop
[09:03] {Threei} [10:25] {Threei} let's trail HGSI to .35
[09:03] {Threei} ??
[09:03] {Threei} Les... how does stop trailing translates into target??
[09:03] {lasertrev} morning
[09:03] {Threei} terv :)
[09:03] {Threei} it means trail THE STOP
[09:03] {Threei} not the exit
[09:04] {Threei} explain your thinking because I don't understand what it is that confuses you
[09:04] {Threei} stop is exit on LOSING side
[09:04] {Threei} if a trade moves against you
[09:05] {Threei} you enter long at .41,
[09:05] {Threei} your stop is under .30
[09:05] {Threei} Stock moves in your favor,
[09:05] {_Les__} you were tightening your stop?
[09:05] {Threei} at some point you are tightening the sdstop by trailing it
[09:06] {Threei} By no means this means changing the target
[09:06] {_Les__} ok. So "trail" means trailing stop. Thought you wanted to "trail" HGSI, i.e., follow it for a moment
[09:07] {_Les__} But as I said before. My blog feed was cut off at this point, so I didn't see this: [10:26] {fernp} out HGSI +.09, thanks strider, vad
[09:07] {Threei} YRCW
[09:07] {Threei} YRC Worldwide, Inc. Reports Q3 -$2.67(incl items) v -$1.70e, R$1.3B v $1.4Be; confirms in active noteholder discussions
[09:07] {Threei} - EPS included a net gain on property disposals of $.18 per share, severance charges of $.08 per share due to further headcount reductions and lease termination charges of $.11 per share related to further optimizing the networks.
[09:07] {Threei} - Been in active dialogue with noteholders, good progress made
[09:07] {_Les__} the system crashed and I didn't try to reenter. But thanks for clarifying your vocab.

[09:55] {Threei} OCT FINAL UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN CONFIDENCE: 70.6 V 70.0E
[09:55] {Threei} good number
[09:55] {Threei} perfect setup if market reverses and hits low
[09:56] {Threei} pullback is too deep for a breakout play
[09:56] {Threei} rather try to catch reversal, IMO
[09:57] {Threei} 22.90 QID's low for stop placement
[09:57] {Threei} ideally, dive under 23,
[09:57] {Threei} no

[10:50] {dino} hard stop it and let it trade
[10:52] {ese} ya i only had 500shs going there
[10:53] {dino} there you go, throw hard stop on and "no worries"
[10:53] {ese} speaking of greek......or is that greed. shoulda taken the 600 in fitb
[10:53] {dino} saw that
[10:54] {Threei} okay guys, quiet period,
[10:54] {Threei} so let's do two things
[10:54] {nemo} are we back to the opposable thumb conversation
[10:54] {Threei} first, for your visual pleasure, some fall photos
[10:54] {Threei} http://www.realitytrader.com/photography/
[10:55] {ese} whadaya mean quite..........i'm screaming GO FITB GO!!!!!! it's deafining on this side
[10:55] {Threei} lol
[10:56] {nemo} beautiful area
[10:56] {dino} and i'm kicking esi
[10:57] {_Les__} you're a hopeless romantic Vad :). Europe is visually stunning too right now.
[10:57] {dino} old joke, use european in sentance
[10:58] {Threei} romantic eh... this is something I hear once a decade
[10:58] {_Les__} what, from your wife or your students?
[10:58] {ese} gripping chair.....finger marks in upostery.......face turning red........absolute eminating from body motions
[10:58] {ese} terror eminating
[10:58] {dino} "excuse me, euro-peeing in my car"
[10:59] {ese} ahhhh i'm up.....thinks are fine now
[10:59] {ese} things
[10:59] {dino} cmi drop
[10:59] {dino} 4 bucks
[11:00] {Threei} okay, let's get back to that chart
[11:00] {Threei} but instead of QID look at whatever you use for NASDAQ
[11:00] {Threei} NQ, QQQQ
[11:01] {Threei} long call on QID is a short call on NASDAQ,
[11:01] {Threei} and looking at NASDAQ chart,
[11:01] {Threei} see the C&H on 1 min?
[11:01] {Threei} from 9:43 to 10:12
[11:02] {dino} esi vad
[11:02] {dino} getting close
[11:03] {Threei} anyone's alive or\ I am talking to myself?
[11:03] {fernp} I see the C&H, the one that never broke .15
[11:03] {_Les__} Vad, handle is small ascending triangle 10:03 - 10:12?
[11:03] {strider} I' m listening
[11:03] {nemo} yeah.
[11:03] {Threei} yes
[11:03] {Threei} short call on this chart is FAILURE of the C&H
[11:04] {Threei} failutre of this setup is break of the handle's low
[11:04] {Threei} and failure of the setup is a setup too
[11:04] {Threei} now, C&H is sometimes easier to see than inverse one
[11:04] {ese} lovely ...i'm up 3.49 cents
[11:04] {Threei} that's why I suggested to look at NASDAQ instead of QID
[11:05] {Threei} going back to QID, you can see invsrted C&H,
[11:05] {Threei} with handle "bottom" being broken at 23
[11:06] {Threei} to polish the setup, have a look at volume formation:
[11:06] {Threei} volume on second rise to the rim is lower than on first,
[11:07] {Threei} there is some volume increase to the bottom of the cup,
[11:07] {Threei} handle touches the rim on ever-decreasing volume
[11:07] {Threei} Just wanted to go over this since it's not every day's setup and is a tad more sophisticated than most
[11:07] {ese} hmmm would have never seen that vad
[11:08] {ese} agreed
[11:08] {Threei} Original idea comes from my strong convition that we are seeing simple bounce
[11:08] {Threei} so I was on a lookout for some fake raly attempt
[11:08] {Threei} that wouyld fool bulls
[11:08] {dino} stop esi .43, +.78
[11:08] {nemo} qid popping as you write
[11:09] {Threei} and failure of some of traditional setups is just perfect
[11:09] {ese} and so is ash......nice one dino
[11:09] {dino} ash to flat
[11:09] {dino} lucky, but thx
[11:10] {dino} ash reminds me of woodpecker joke
[11:10] {ese} ?
[11:11] {nemo} dino on a roll today
[11:11] {ese} yes he is
[11:11] {ese} joke?
[11:11] {dino} woodpecker says to his depressed woodpecker buddy, "you know what you need, a nice piece of ash"
[11:11] {_Les__} Vad, was volume key to failure?
[11:12] {ese} riiiiiiiiiiiiight
[11:12] {Raven} sigh
[11:13] {Threei} one of pieces to the mosaic
[11:14] {ese} well.........i guess the joke could have been a raven
[11:14] {nemo} nah
[11:15] {ese} ya......your right
[11:15] {dino} lol
[11:15] {Threei} now QID itself forms C&H
[11:15] {dino} thats what you hearwhen you have logger friends
[11:16] {dino} esi holds well
[11:16] {ese} was just looking at that.....almost same pattern as ash
[11:17] {ese} was thinking long at .60
[11:18] {dino} cmi strange, they luved it now hate it. beat and raised
[11:18] {ese} how long will you let ash trade dino
[11:18] {ese} you got a target
[11:18] {dino} all day unless stop hits
[11:18] {dino} 35
[11:19] {ese} fitb puts in higher low
[11:19] {dino} damn distracted cmi goes .550
[11:19] {ese} this is longer than i would normally hold this.....but it's holding up well as well
[11:19] {dino} w/o me
[11:20] {ese} higher low on the 1 min chart by the way
[11:24] {dino} cmi weaiting at .50
[11:24] {dino} waiting
[11:24] {ese} this is almost funny except for the fact that this is a serious business being up 3.49cents with the # of k's i have riding on this
[11:24] {strider} out 2nd part QID
[11:24] {Threei} QID 1:2, 1/4 more out
[11:24] {fernp} Vad, what is there in the third pic? is a flower, an insect?
[11:24] {dino} gj
[11:25] {dino} ash out flat
[11:25] {Threei} a berry
[11:25] {strider} Vad does it make sense to hold a little QID for serious market tanking?
[11:25] {Threei} one you get after wild rose bloom is over
[11:25] {dino} tsra to .99
[11:25] {Threei} [11:24] {Threei} QID 1:2, 1/4 more out
[11:25] {Threei} this is what I do
[11:26] {Threei} HGSI ignores market
[11:26] {_Les__} berry is called a rose hip - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosehip
[11:27] {strider} So you hold part of the last 1/4?
[11:27] {Threei} that's it, thank you
[11:27] {Threei} holding last 1/4
[11:27] {strider} k
[11:27] {Threei} what's the deal with no one understanding what I say last couple days... did my English get worse?
[11:28] {Threei} nah, can't be, it was rock bottom as it was
[11:28] {ese} ddaaaaaaaaaaa!!! get up there fitb
[11:28] {strider} I was wondering if you sometimes hold part of the last 1/4 for more than 3:1
[11:30] {_Les__} Isn't Lari supposed to be policing your english? she been MIA since I signed on..
[11:30] {Threei} depends on origional number of shares
[11:30] {ese} larisa...hmmmmmm good question
[11:31] {Threei} if it's not a lot, I maay just hold last 1/4 andf trail the stop
[11:31] {Threei} if a lot, may partial more
[11:31] {dino} who are you the cat in the hat
[11:34] {dino} cmi sm l .00
[11:35] {dino} stop is .67
[11:35] {Threei} 1:3
[11:35] {Threei} make your decision, to exit in full or to trail to under .10
[11:35] {dino} tsra stopped -.06
[11:37] {dino} stopped cmi, mkt got me
[11:37] {Threei} 1:4
[11:37] {Threei} if trailing, stop to under .20
[11:37] {Threei} I am out
[11:37] {strider} out last +.41
[11:38] {strider} thx Vad
[11:38] {Threei} +.44

[11:38] {dino} wtg
[11:38] {Threei} ty
[11:38] {strider} A good lesson in patience for me.......patience, are you there? :)
[11:39] {dino} gaps ndx 1682, s/p 1042
[11:39] {strider} 1 hr. 35 min. trade
[11:39] {Threei} speaking of phootgraphy... new lens on the way, ultrawide angle
[11:39] {Threei} whole new way to see the world
[11:39] {Threei} can't wait
[11:40] {strider} Ultrawide...isn't that a Harley?
[11:40] {Threei} no
[11:40] {_Les__} fish eye! like what 8mm, 16mm?
[11:40] {Threei} not fisheye
[11:41] {Threei} 9-18 mm... in 35mm terms. 18-36
[11:42] {nemo} apol holding today dino
[11:42] {Threei} anyone but strider took whole QID move?
[11:42] {dino} watching it for esi
[11:43] {Threei} 40 cents is darn nice one on a slow day
[11:43] {dino} wed gaps on stocks are filling
[11:43] {Threei} but the best part of this play is setup itself
[11:43] {strider} HIG?
[11:43] {dino} tsra rinsed
[11:43] {Threei} it's so evilishly sophisticated
[11:43] {Threei} HIG forms breakdown
[11:44] {_Les__} in 35 mm terms? U using large/medium format camera?
[11:44] {dino} ghoulishly for the season
[11:44] {Threei} no
[11:44] {Threei} just using 35 reference for unifying the terrms
[11:45] {Threei} with all the different crops of today's sensors, need something standard to make sure we speak of the same thing
[11:45] {Threei} Short Setup: HIG .50 break
[11:45] {Threei} if stays under .85
[11:45] {Threei} .65
[11:46] {strider} crap
[11:46] {nemo} looked at mirc

[11:54] {nemo} low volume though
[11:54] {Threei} almost all of it
[11:54] {_Les__} so this is bounce or post bounce reversal? The new trend in?
[11:54] {Threei} yeah, I whish we had more volume today
[11:54] {fernp} you still in QID, Vad?
[11:54] {Threei} would givbe me more confidence in downtrend continuation

[11:55] {dino} ndx filled
[11:55] {Threei} I doubt it's an option for the next week
[11:56] {Threei} I feel we will have some resolution
[11:56] {Threei} too much tension in the air
[11:56] {Threei} if we make new low today, it will start smeling like a quick nasty crash
[11:58] {Threei} well well well
[11:58] {Threei} guess who is on TV

[13:08] {bkhmd} mostly short plays today or bounces?
[13:08] {Threei} not sure fern
[13:08] {Threei} both bk
[13:09] {Threei} short was the biggest
[13:09] {bkhmd} k i will grab the next set up
[13:09] {dino} eyes on esi
[13:10] {ese} fern.....theres the reason you did the right thing with fitb
[13:10] {Threei} CIT WSJ: Icahn will provide $1B back up line; will agree to standstill agreemenet (0.81, -0.14, -14.84%)
[13:11] {Threei} half out AIG
[13:11] {fernp} wow!, ty ese
[13:12] {ese} could be a brutal month november.....if the month goes out like this it's usually the pre curser for the next month.......is that correct?
[13:13] {Threei} no
[13:13] {dino} not this month, started 9 of 12 down from end of sept
[13:13] {dino} imo means nothing (yet)
[13:14] {ese} i'd read that somewhere...don't remember....
[13:14] {Threei} would be too easy
[13:14] {ese} althought reading 250 trading books made me no money until hooking up with you all
[13:14] {Threei} look at the last day of the month, go in that direction for the next 29 days
[13:15] {Threei} if such things worked...
[13:16] {dino} es 09-23-09- 9917, 1754, 1080; 10-02-09- 9484, 1662, 1019
[13:16] {dino} and cramer still talking how eom markups happening, not!
[13:17] {ese} went to Russells used books here a year ago and gave them 203 trading books in exchange for $125.00 credit.....that should tell you something
[13:18] {ese} kept the other 47 or so for historical reference
[13:19] {dino} trv sm l .50
[13:19] {ese} each of those books was easily over 50.00 average easilly........only have vads and one other on my trading desk now
[13:20] {dino} i still have 20
[13:20] {Threei} one other is Marx's Das Capital of course?
[13:20] {nemo} Das Kapital
[13:20] {ese} never read that one
[13:21] {nemo} I remember going to East Berlin before the Wall fell.
[13:21] {dino} or so. but the only ones that mattered, trading in the zone, vad's, and reminisses of stock operator
[13:21] {nemo} Bought an East German Economics text
[13:21] {Threei} ok... Decameron's Bocaccio then
[13:21] {nemo} First line: "Capitalism stinks, it's parasitic, and foul"
[13:22] {Threei} signed: Michael Moore
[13:22] {ese} i bought a book in Denmark......."how to drink heavily in 12 easy steps"
[13:22] {dino} and way of the turtles first half
[13:22] {_Les__} Nothing wrong with Marx's theory on Capital. He understood it well. Marx's "communist manifesto" has less oomph today
[13:23] {dino} whats wrong is assuming there is a better system
[13:23] {nemo} Mix human ego in with utopian thinking
[13:23] {Threei} yeah... as someone who actually lived in the country built on his ideas, I could list endless ways in which it was wrong :)
[13:24] {ese} agreed....thats why drinking your way through any system works well
[13:24] {_Les__} I don't confuse his understanding of capitalism and his theory of communism...
[13:24] {Threei} well, you can't separate them
[13:24] {Threei} his whole work is built on the contrast
[13:24] {Threei} this is what is wrong with capitalism, and this is how to fix it with communism
[13:25] {strider} AIG rinse
[13:25] {nemo} no rinse...just stopped
[13:25] {strider} multi-cycle rinse
[13:25] {Threei} to be precise, second half stopped breakeven
[13:26] {nemo} Now we have fasciscm run by a socialist President/Congress
[13:26] {Threei} first is out after 1:1
[13:26] {Threei} follow the routine guys
[13:26] {Threei} this is how we play them
[13:26] {Threei} never turn 1:1 play into loss
[13:26] {nemo} yes Vad...rinse is Dino's term for Vad's "rude"
[13:27] {Threei} it's still under
[13:27] {Threei} thus it's not a rinse and not rude
[13:27] {Threei} yet
[13:27] {nemo} I was commenting on the term
[13:27] {Threei} now... if it bottoms out here and goes to 35
[13:27] {Threei} that will be rude
[13:27] {nemo} that's rude
[13:27] {strider} dino you still in shaw?
[13:28] {dino} y
[13:29] {ese} Mabon Teenie Hodges said it best with a tune he co wrote with Al Green. called "Take Me Too The River" I don't why you treat me like you do.......with all of the changes that you put me though..You took my money and my cigarettes and i haven't hide nor hair of you yet.......I wanna know etc etc....Chorus....Take me to the River.....and wash me doown.......ou

[13:31] {strider} amgn big rude rinse
[13:31] {Threei} no
[13:32] {dino} shaw out +.05 trv out -.20 don't like drop
[13:32] {strider} amgn continues
[13:32] {strider} or not
[13:33] {fernp} Vad, when the trade is a "not a scalp for me" type :-). After hit 1:1, stop is raised to the entry point, or to a "tested" support level under our entry point?
[13:33] {fernp} you did that with QID this morning
[13:34] {Threei} fern, routine procedure:
[13:34] {Threei} 1:1, half out, stop to b/e

[13:38] {dino} dam broke

[13:38] {bkhmd} lol
[13:38] {bkhmd} GLD wanted to make a move but then stalled
[13:39] {bkhmd} does GLD usually travel against the general market?
[13:39] {Threei} no, not lately
[13:39] {Threei} mostly moves with market
[13:39] {Threei} and both move against USD
[13:39] {dino} cmi sm l .65
[13:40] {Threei} but I feel for a while they will decouple soon
[13:40] {dino} too soon
[13:40] {dino} gld contrary $ lately
[13:40] {bkhmd} Vad what are you using to track the dollar? compared to which currenc
[13:40] {bkhmd} currency
[13:40] {nemo} uup
[13:40] {Threei} UUP
[13:41] {dino} extrapolate, $ is contrary to gold and stocks lately
[13:41] {nemo} read your mind Vad...disgusting
[13:41] {Threei} I don;t care about other currenies... except CAD which I want to drop dead
[13:41] {Threei} that would be FXC
[13:41] {dino} tsra holds well here es
[13:42] {dino} darn shaw tricked me
[13:43] {nemo} might want to partial cmi here dino
[13:43] {strider} +.10 trv, thanks, dino
[13:44] {dino} np
[13:44] {dino} sm nemo, want .30-.55
[13:44] {dino} should get to .15
[13:44] {dino} pattern
[13:44] {nemo} greedy long on a day like today? call you magoo
[13:44] {dino} trv should get to .50
[13:45] {dino} big difference, i'm trading 300-400 only
[13:46] {strider} HIG forming yet another REVERSE c&h
[13:46] {dino} plus nemo, i use hard stops
[13:47] {dino} cmi to b/e
[13:48] {strider} looks fore like a dbl bottom, hig?
[13:48] {strider} more
[13:49] {fernp} HIG in lunchtime is not a god candidate IMHO
[13:49] {dino} almost 2:00 pm
[13:49] {nemo} he must be mountain time
[13:50] {fernp} yeah!!!, we moved back clocks last saturday
[13:50] {fernp} GMT+1
[13:50] {nemo} not as dumb as I look...
[13:51] {nemo} then again...nobody could be THAT dumb
[13:51] {nemo} Just call me "Agarn"
[13:51] {dino} rovi holds well
[13:51] {dino} intc too
[13:51] {dino} mrvl
[13:54] {fernp} FITB breakdown?
[13:54] {dino} out cmi .85
[13:55] {dino} +.20, sometimes i expect too much nemo
[13:55] {Threei} I am hesitatnt to continue playing short side fern
[13:55] {nemo} broken clock moment, dude
[13:55] {dino} lol
[13:55] {Threei} odds become increasingly worse
[13:56] {nemo} yeah, shorts are probably going to want to cover for the weekend
[13:56] {Threei} well, this logic I don't buy
[13:56] {fernp} yes i think so nemo
[13:56] {nemo} Why, they making good money today
[13:56] {Threei} yes... but
[13:56] {dino} pru gap close to filled
[13:57] {nemo} but...but...but...but...
[13:57] {Threei} to know what is more likely, shorts wanting to cover or longs wanting to get out
[13:57] {Threei} and which side will overpower the other
[13:57] {Threei} you need to know the disbalance
[13:58] {nemo} so flat for the rest of the day?
[13:58] {Threei} and if you or anyone can come up with the way to do that... Bill Gates will be your doorman
[13:58] {nemo} Let me get the chicken...
[13:58] {Threei} why flat?
[13:58] {Threei} my point is,
[13:58] {nemo} Where are those crystals?
[13:59] {Threei} whatever happens at the close,
[13:59] {Threei} the logic who is going to get out is not going to help you figure it out
[13:59] {Threei} It's false logic
[13:59] {Threei} it works only in one case:
[14:00] {Threei} when you have some strong reason to read the disbalance
[14:00] {Threei} as in:
[14:00] {Threei} longs piled up hugely,
[14:00] {Threei} there are way too many of them
[14:00] {Threei} or shorts leaned in too strongly
[14:00] {Threei} and it's not like this kind of things is obvious all the rtime
[14:00] {Threei} or even often
[14:01] {Threei} it's rare cases when you get clear read on such disbalance
[14:01] {Threei} otherwise calling reversals would be easy
[14:01] {Threei} see my point?
[14:01] {nemo} yes
[14:01] {dino} so nemo, in regards to the close or monday for that matter, you make me think of trading w/the zone, the only rule you need to get from the book, is this; "anything can happen"; therefore, no worries
[14:01] {fernp} shorted small shares FITB at .93 w/stop above .95, so I am not nervous with my position :)
[14:02] {Threei} lol fern
[14:02] {Threei} that's what I call extreme risk control
[14:02] {fernp} and easy 1:1 lol
[14:02] {Threei} rofl
[14:02] {fernp} just letting trade
[14:02] {nemo} probably cost you more to trade a share than the stop
[14:03] {ese} nnnnooooooooo rimm........you can't recover.........auch du miya
[14:04] {nemo} I almost went short at .30 about 10 minutes ago, before Vad piped up...
[14:04] {dino} affy
[14:05] {Threei} on what nemo? RIMM?
[14:05] {nemo} yes
[14:05] {nemo} CMI rinse Dino
[14:06] {nemo} it peaked above S3 then dropped and came up again on lower volume and then dropped to .15
[14:06] {dino} well, made .20 on it, but i chickened out
[14:06] {fernp} stopped FITB. I've reached my maximun daily loss :-)
[14:06] {Threei} lol
[14:06] {Threei} some recovery in progress
[14:07] {Threei} Long Setup: AIG .25 brak
[14:07] {Threei} if stays above .15
[14:08] {ese} outta here for the weekend....take care all see you in november
[14:08] {Threei} take care ese
[14:08] {ese} see ya vad
[14:08] {fernp} bye ese
[14:08] {dino} cya es
[14:08] {ese} dino fern
[14:08] {bkhmd} later ese
[14:09] {Threei} invalidated
[14:10] {fernp} HIG 24.50 break?
[14:10] {nemo} market backing off
[14:11] {nemo} Rimm coming up on VWAP just @ .72, could be a turn
[14:11] {Threei} not sure about HIG
[14:11] {Threei} Market Internals update at 2:00pmET
[14:11] {Threei} - NYSE volume 720M shares, about 5% above its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 14.2:1.
[14:11] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 1.51B shares, about 4% above its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 4.1:1.
[14:11] {Threei} - VIX index +24.5% to just under 31.00
[14:22] {nemo} apple forming .20 range
[14:29] {nemo} V C&H
[14:30] {Threei} if market establishes upward direction, could be a pretty one
[14:31] {nemo} see saw right now
[14:35] {Threei} this smackdown is perfect illustration of how setup turns into trap when played against the market
[14:36] {dino} rinse market
[14:36] {fernp} was thinking the same watching V
[14:46] {dino} pru sm l .50
[14:54] {patience} .
[14:54] {Threei} Long Setup: AIG .05 break
[14:54] {Threei} if stays above .90
[14:55] {dino} lol, howards simons on real $; white house trumpeting the saving of 650,000 jobs; by similar logic i am responsible for saving the virginity of 30 million women
[14:55] {fernp} lol
[14:55] {nemo} I would have thought more in your case Dino
[14:56] {Threei} I'll take responsibility to 30 mil more dino
[14:56] {nemo} saving it Vad, not despoiling
[14:56] {Threei} between two of us, we are good humanitarians
[14:56] {dino} :)
[14:57] {nemo} volatility thy name is AIG
[14:57] {Threei} yeah
[14:57] {fernp} invalidated, no?
[14:57] {Threei} some nervous jumps everywhere
[14:57] {nemo} evil "they" manipulating the stock
[14:57] {Threei} let's better try to catch pullback
[14:58] {Threei} break is way too dangerous
[14:58] {fernp} too random and friday... Have a nice weekend everybody. See you all on monday.
[14:58] {Threei} have a good one fern
[14:59] {Threei} I'll have to leave in 30 min too to catch that torch
[14:59] {bkhmd} later fern
[14:59] {nemo} oil down $3..must be supply/demand
[15:00] {strider} are we waiting to catch a pullback? If so where?
[15:01] {Threei} I'll tell if I see it
[15:01] {strider} :)
[15:02] {dino} cya fern
[15:04] {Threei} RIMM is not dropping with market
[15:05] {Threei} gave up now
[15:05] {Threei} shorts are not in hurry to cover eh?
[15:05] {Threei} -270
[15:06] {nemo} nope...thought you didn't believe in that?
[15:06] {Threei} how's that for a bounce smackdown
[15:06] {Threei} nemo, are you completely misreading what I say or what
[15:06] {Threei} what in this made you think I believbe in it now?
[15:12] {nemo} of course...
[15:14] {nemo} frickin rimm
[15:19] {Threei} nice bounce but didn't give clear setup worth the risk
[15:19] {nemo} no
[15:24] {ese} logged in to see what was going on.....had a class cancelled.
[15:25] {Threei} because of onlympic torch??
[15:25] {ese} hmmmm maybe
[15:27] {dino} not much es
[15:29] {dino} esi sm l .75
[15:32] {Threei} okay guys... honestly, don't want anymore trade in this nervous close, it's been somewhat exhausting week
[15:32] {Threei} I believe we handled it well
[15:32] {nemo} PPT should show up at any time
[15:32] {Threei} with some days hitting 100%,
[15:32] {nemo} you had a good week
[15:32] {Threei} and generally staying on winning side except of Monday I think
[15:33] {nemo} that was flat I think
[15:33] {Threei} unless my memory fails
[15:33] {Threei} yeah, last week we had couple losing days, you are right
[15:33] {Threei} going to try and catch that torch now,
[15:33] {strider} I would be doing OK, if I can just get my executions right.
[15:33] {Threei} you have youreselves a good relaxing weekend
[15:33] {dino} wtg vad
[15:33] {strider} Still flubbing things a bit.

Oct 29 2009

That was not overly active but nicely profitable day. 5 calls, 5 wins - JNPR, CAT, FITB, HGSI, AMZN - everything danced just right. Market bounced just as yesterday's forecast had it.


Session Time: Thu Oct 29 00:00:00 2009

[07:26] {KSystems} Morning
[08:30] {Threei} Thursday, October 29, 2009 8:30:02 AM
[08:30] {Threei} *Q3 ADVANCED GDP PRICE INDEX: 0.8% V 1.4%E
[08:30] {Threei} INITIAL JOBLESS CLAIMS: 530K V 525KE; CONTINUING CLAIMS: 5.797M V 5.905ME
[08:30] {Threei} *Q3 ADVANCED GDP PRICE INDEX: 0.8% V 1.4%E; CORE PCE Q/Q: 1.4% V 1.4%E
[08:34] {nemo} market seems to like that report
[08:35] {Threei} not sure why but market is simply ready for bounce... it would have liked anything
[08:35] {nemo} yes
[08:40] {Threei} (US) Fed's Tarullo: new capital liquidity rules will end "too big to fail" issue; considering quantitative liquidity standards
[08:40] {Threei} **Reminder: On 10/14 Tarullo said that banks face further risk of sizable credit losses, banking system remains fragile, loan qualifications are poor
[08:40] {strider} "the Great Recession is over." Party Time!
[08:40] {nemo} yeah...but what about all that "off-balance" sheet stuff?
[08:41] {nemo} crock of taurine excrement
[08:41] {Threei} why's HIG so happy?
06[08:41] * strider slaps nemo around a bit with a large trout
[08:41] {nemo} all "financial" institutions
[08:49] {strider} mIRC sure is a pita
[08:49] {Threei} hmm?
06[08:49] * nemo slaps strider around a bit with a large 2X4 with rusty nails
[08:49] {strider} Well, it's complicated. Never mind.
[08:50] {nemo} complicated as a hang-nail.
[08:50] {strider} Have to reboot computer when I switch ISPs.
[08:50] {strider} Because of mIRC}
[08:50] {strider} Won't reconnect without it.
[08:51] {Threei} shouldn't be this way
[08:51] {strider} I agree!
[08:51] {strider} Life is hard.
[08:51] {Threei} File - Recent Servers, click on top one
[08:51] {Threei} it should reconnect
[08:52] {strider} When I switch, I should log off IRC first. Always forget. So it still thinks strider is logged on, even after disconnect.
[08:53] {Threei} ahhha
06[08:53] * strider slaps strider around a bit with a large trout
[08:53] {nemo} use the 2X4
[08:53] {Threei} it's not mirc itself then, it's server that doesn't get right message
[08:53] {strider} I guess.
[08:54] {strider} I don't know where the 2 x 4 is, nemo. Just found the trout yesterday afternoon.
[08:54] {nemo} bottom of the same menu..produces a text entry box
06[08:54] * nemo slaps strider around a bit with a large lead pipe
[08:55] {Threei} he doesn't have it unless he installed that custom-made script nemo
[08:55] {Threei} remember, one that KS wrote
[08:55] {ese} good morning
[08:55] {nemo} oh yeah...magoo went nuts on me until I got that script installed
[08:55] {nemo} dude
[08:55] {Threei} ese :)
[08:56] {Threei} magoo? went nuts?
[08:56] {Threei} wasn't very long trip, was it
[08:56] {nemo} figure of speech..already there...I know
[08:56] {_Les__} How can I smack Nemo around the head before he gets me... you know, a preemptive strike?
[08:57] {Threei} those are illegal now, les
06[08:57] * nemo slaps _Les__ around a bit with a large round of Swiss Cheese
[08:57] {ese} dude
[08:57] {ese} vad
[08:57] {Threei} now you have all the rights
[08:58] {nemo} any thoughts on the open Vad?
[08:58] {_Les__} no dice paying Bear with online banking. Gonna have to visit a bank branch for first time in 7 years. Go figure.
[08:58] {nemo} Yeah...that was no fun
[08:58] {strider} AIG gapped up a buck
[08:59] {nemo} all "financials" gapped big
[08:59] {Threei} thoughts? you are glattering me

[09:55] {_Les__} Vad - .10 break - u mean 10 cent scalp? or 10 cents both ways i.e., sell trigger/stop?
[09:56] {Threei} 9.10 break is an entry trigger

[10:01] {Threei} meaning:
[10:01] {Threei} enter long when FITB breaks 9.10,
[10:02] {Threei} do so only if it doesn't drop under 9.05 before triggering,
[10:02] {Threei} srtop is under 9.05,
[10:02] {ese} yup
[10:02] {Threei} 1:1 will be reached at 9.16-9.17
[10:02] {dino} stop lhcg is break of lod
[10:02] {Threei} that's our standard setup structure derived from the call
[10:03] {nemo} srtop=stop

[10:04] {Threei} well, trade management is in the eyes of the beholder
[10:04] {Threei} I just provide guidelines for the structure
[10:04] {ese} this whole move in drys ....in my opinion....is end of month beginning of month type of thing.....will probably be out next week sometime and then have to go through the whole process again
[10:05] {Threei} but I was talking about FITB, not DRYS :)

[10:28] {Threei} news... or sector strength
[10:28] {Threei} otherwise it's so slow that two things happen
[10:28] {Threei} one, it tortures you using all ancient chinese recipes
[10:28] {fernp} lol
[10:28] {Threei} another, it moves with no structure
[10:28] {nemo} fcx strong on market drop
[10:29] {Threei} seemingly forms something,
[10:29] {Threei} then makes sudden move to out of setup bounds prices,
[10:29] {Threei} shakes you out,
[10:29] {Threei} then returns withing the range just as suddenlt

[11:40] {Threei} even AIG is not moving
[11:41] {Threei} chart wise, .60 break is long trigger
[11:42] {fernp} HIG breaking too
[11:42] {Threei} not sure it's worth the risk
[11:42] {Threei} AIG I mean
[11:43] {Threei} lately it ignores patterns

[11:49] {Threei} ECB source notes ECB against a $1.50 exchange rate over medium term; will urge China to allow Yuan appreciation - unconfirmed report
[11:49] {Threei} - ECB concerned about a rapidly appreciating Euro; concerned about an FX intervention without Chinese and US support
[11:49] {Threei} - Reminder: EU's Verhuegen today commented that China has a competitive advantage due to FX and the G20 should discuss 'artificially' low currencies
[11:50] {nemo} kinda' funny, China can blame it on the US

[11:55] {nemo} broke up last time
[11:55] {nemo} down this time
[11:55] {Threei} next time you return from the bar with a few glasses of vodka
[11:55] {nemo} not my type Vad
[11:56] {Threei} that's a relief
[11:56] {Threei} KS, no word from mibbit still?
[11:57] {nemo} Geri Atric
[11:58] {fernp} there is a free irc client (very similar to mirc) called "ClicksAndWhistles"
[11:58] {fernp} I am using it now and works fine. It is almost identical to mirc but is free
[11:58] {fernp} the link to download it http://download.softpedia.com/dl/56d8f1eb54bdad6055779ea9ae10dfff/4ae9b6a1/100094194/software/internet/im/ClicksAndWhistles.zip
[11:58] {nemo} yeah, but can you trout with it?
[11:59] {Threei} does it require same configuration as mIRC?
[11:59] {fernp} the same one
[11:59] {KSystems} some of it is already working again
06[11:59] * fernp slaps nemo around a bit with a large trout
[11:59] {Threei} well, that's the problem
[11:59] {fernp} too complex?
[11:59] {Threei} we are trying to provide mibbit as immediate painless way to connect
[12:00] {Threei} trialer signing up for a week, no point in going throgh complicated mirc configuration
[12:01] {KSystems} ok it seems to be up again
[12:01] {KSystems} if people start connecting now :)
[12:01] {Threei} Sorry for the downtime
[12:01] {Threei} October 27th, 2009
[12:01] {Threei} Unfortunately our webhost had some issues tonight and had to power cycle each server.
[12:01] {Threei} It looks like everything is working fine now, but apologies for any downtime.
[12:01] {Threei} from their blog
[12:01] {KSystems} oct 27th
[12:01] {Threei} but we didn't have any
[12:02] {Threei} so, was it prophetic p;ost on their part?
[12:02] {KSystems} he says "tonight" so it probably wasnt during market hours
[12:02] {Threei} oh
[12:02] {Threei} still broken
[12:02] {Threei} I just tried to click from our page
[12:03] {Threei} does it work for you KS??
[12:03] {KSystems} ok...wiki and blog are already up again, and as they were down too even a few minutes ago, i think they are getting their stuff running again
[12:08] {KSystems} can someone kick the snp future one tick higher please
[12:08] {KSystems} this is getting on my nerves
[12:09] {Threei} sure... why didn't you ask earlier
[12:09] {fernp} out HIG .99 I forgot about it
[12:09] {Threei} there you go
[12:09] {Threei} lol fern
[12:10] {Threei} that's what I call stress-free trading
[12:10] {fernp} im busy with this new program...
[12:10] {KSystems} thanks to whoever it was
[12:10] {fernp} lol
[12:10] {KSystems} which program, fern?
[12:10] {Threei} what do you mean whoever it was?
[12:10] {nemo} kicked the futures
[12:10] {KSystems} oh sorry, it was you
[12:10] {KSystems} of course, thanks
[12:10] {Threei} sigh
[12:10] {fernp} clockandwhistles
[12:10] {fernp} clicks...
[12:11] {KSystems} oic
[12:11] {Threei} what's the point fern?
[12:12] {fernp} create a scrip where users just have to write nick and passwd
[12:12] {nemo} Trouting is much more important
[12:12] {Threei} if it's possible with that one, must be possible with mirc as well?
[12:13] {fernp} yes
[12:13] {KSystems} yes it is
[12:13] {Threei} maybe we'd better have it unified then
[12:13] {KSystems} problem is, integrating that script into mirc is equally difficult
[12:13] {KSystems} and having it ship with mirc like the previous one for chatspace is against the license agreement
[12:14] {fernp} that's the point
[12:14] {Threei} oh I see
[12:14] {Threei} makes sense
[12:14] {KSystems} but look vad you can put a cool background image to chlicksandwhistles
[12:14] {KSystems} http://clicksandwhistles.com/screenshots/ClicksAndWhistlesScreenshot2.png
[12:14] {KSystems} oh wait
[12:14] {KSystems} hey you can do that with mirc too
[12:14] {Threei} I am just not very confident in free product that may be left with no support
[12:14] {KSystems} if i just had knows this earlier!!
[12:15] {Threei} after all, how often we see such outages in mibbit?
[12:15] {Threei} it's probably second time in a year
[12:15] {nemo} yeah...but if it's at a functional stage that is useable..functionality requirements for this application will always be relatively minimal
[12:17] {fernp} but clicks... is GPL we can not sell it, but we can inform about our modificactions in a txt and be safe...
[12:19] {Threei} I had doubts about HIG 25 break
[12:19] {Threei} too bad
[12:19] {nemo} just broke resistance at 15 next resistance 25.50
[12:19] {Threei} Market Internals update at 12:00pmET

[12:19] {Threei} - VIX index -8.5% to just over 25.50
[12:19] {KSystems} yes you'd be able to ship clicks for free with pre-configuration for RT
[12:20] {KSystems} doesnt matter if the service it connects to is commercial
[12:27] {gnslng} .
[12:28] {Threei} mibbit is back gnsl?
[12:28] {gnslng} ty
[12:30] {KSystems} nope
[12:30] {KSystems} this volatility is incredible
[12:31] {nemo} K? where were you last winter?
[12:31] {Threei} lol
[12:31] {Threei} no kidding

[14:24] {Threei} not sure mags
[14:24] {Threei} market is still frozen
[14:24] {Threei} just asking for stops, IMO
[14:25] {magoo} soon
[14:25] {Threei} look at the timing of all our calls today
[14:25] {magoo} cant
[14:25] {Threei} 3 of them were over during that morning move
[14:25] {Threei} 4th one was later but rather an exception
[14:25] {Threei} CAT was moving on its own
[14:28] {Threei} (US) Senator Snowe: will not be the 60th vote to break filibuster on healthcare plan - CNBC

[14:31] {fernp} are you going to trade a friday afternoon?
[14:31] {Threei} AET
[14:32] {Threei} not sure whether it's reaction on Olympia or just spike with market
[14:32] {fernp} MET not moving
[14:33] {Threei} MET is rather GIG's brother, not AET's
[14:33] {Threei} HUM is in the same field as AET
[14:33] {Threei} GIG=HIG
[14:33] {fernp} ok
[14:34] {fernp} and AFL?
[14:35] {fernp} is breaking
[14:35] {Threei} not sure about AFL
[14:36] {Threei} I think it's HIG/MET/PRU field
[14:37] {magoo} AONE at it
[14:39] {fernp} too slow everything
[14:40] {Threei} things are in slow motion
[14:40] {Threei} even such traditionally prly ones as AONE
[14:40] {Threei} perky
[14:41] {magoo} fslr trying for high here
[14:42] {fernp} AFL triying to break .90

[14:45] {dino} trv to .65
[14:46] {fernp} gj dino
[14:46] {dino} slow motion
[14:46] {dino} intc puzzles me
[14:46] {Threei} one legged snail moving through mollasses
[14:47] {fernp} AFL hit 1:1 and then sharp drop
[14:48] {dino} yes and all they do is say things are better every day, seems nobody believes them
[14:48] {Threei} remember I talked earlier about how these chaotic moves happen when market is inactive?
[14:48] {Threei} this is exactly what you see fern
[14:49] {Threei} and that's why I fall asleep when market gets locked like this
[14:49] {Threei} even though magoo is getting angry at me
[14:49] {dino} he gets angry w/all
[14:49] {magoo} vad..read on FSLR?
[14:52] {dino} esi more blood from the apol news, 88 area should be support, down from 115
[14:52] {fernp} you are right Vad, "chaotic moves" that the the correct expression
[14:53] {fernp} that's
[14:55] {Threei} feels to me about done for the day mags
[14:55] {Threei} I doubt it has more upside
[14:55] {Threei} unless market loses its mind and goes berserk
[14:55] {magoo} 129 a launcher?
[14:55] {Threei} could be, but risk is enormous
[14:55] {Threei} can get smacked down in a blink of eye
[14:57] {magoo} how about AMZN?
[14:58] {Threei} this one has a shot at a nice move IF
[14:58] {Threei} holding above .50, breaks .50, and market helps
[14:59] {Threei} holding above .30, sorry
06[15:03] * Threei envisions magoo sitting with his finger on the trigger, tracking every tick in AMZN with his eys, then clicking buy when .50 is brken
[15:04] {magoo} in
[15:05] {magoo} over 122?
[15:06] {Threei} if market helps, and with some srtuglle around .80 - .90 first
06[15:06] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large position in AMZN reaching 1:1
06[15:06] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large roll of cash
[15:07] {magoo} nice spot (magoo) nice read (vad)

[15:28] {dino} thx, pretty close to what i'm seeing, my early afternoon trades cost me
[15:29] {Threei} it's normal pattern, it's just more pronounced lately
[15:30] {dino} other thing is, i seem to make more $ when under 7 trades/day
[15:31] {Threei} Market Internals update at 3:30pmET
[15:31] {Threei} - NYSE volume 1.03B shares, about 17% above its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 8.1:1.

[15:36] {magoo} nice
[15:37] {dino} these capits are taking longer to bounce, ie hmin, sohu, vfc, etc. starting to think the bigger $ is a day or two after
[15:37] {Threei} even though market was inactive for the most of the day and mibbit killed half of the room, pretty happy with today
[15:37] {Threei} 5 out of 5
[15:38] {dino} gj 2 of 3
[15:38] {Threei} oh mags and notice
[15:38] {Threei} FSLR never went anywhere
[15:38] {Threei} and would be a trap on 129 break
[15:38] {dino} going down like a rat on cheese
[15:38] {Threei} so, that's actually 6 out of 6, lol
[15:39] {Threei} FSLR lost to AMZN like Commodore to Pentium III
[15:39] {strider} GLD followed the market right up. Should it be doing that?
[15:40] {Threei} sure
[15:40] {Threei} that was the pattern lately when they both acted inveresely of USD
[15:40] {dino} followed tbt imo, bonds down gold up

[15:41] {magoo} ill give u 6

[15:54] {Threei} opposable too
[15:54] {strider} Talk to dino. He's the HMIN expert.
[15:54] {Threei} dino... would you being HMIN expert take it overnight?
[15:54] {dino} dk
[15:55] {Threei} that's the answer of a real trader
[15:55] {dino} no overnight imo
[15:55] {dino} safer to wait and see.
[15:55] {strider} Well, maybe Marisa Tomei.
[15:56] {Threei} well... then you won't need opposable thumb
[15:56] {strider} Bwahahahahahahaha
[15:56] {dino} should get back to 31, but who knows when, thats the issue, you can get direction right, but timing is the problem
[15:57] {dino} watch china makets for open clue
[16:00] {dino} who is john galt
[16:00] {strider} Atlas Shrugged
[16:01] {strider} nobody knows
[16:01] {Threei} lol dino

[11:45] {dino} hmin, might want to lay out, trading gappy
[11:45] {strider} not in hmin
[11:45] {dino} ok
[11:46] {fernp} GLD again on lows
[11:49] {Threei} isn't it nasty?
[11:49] {Threei} 20 cents jump out of nowhere
[11:49] {fernp} yes, untradeable
[11:50] {Threei} look at 1 min on it, want to show you guys something
[11:50] {Threei} see greakdown at 10:47?
[11:50] {Threei} breakdown
[11:51] {Threei} perfect setup and floowed up perfectly
[11:51] {dino} hmin out .75, +.25
[11:51] {Threei} more or less decent setup, breakdown and follow up at 10:00
[11:51] {Threei} the rest is listless jumps up and down,.
[11:52] {Threei} seemingly setting up, then kills you if you try it.
[11:52] {Threei} Now,
[11:52] {Threei} have a look at market
[11:52] {fernp} Qs?
[11:52] {Threei} yup
[11:52] {Threei} see breakdowns at 10:00 and 10:47?
[11:52] {Threei} I don't think it's an accident
[11:52] {Threei} this thing works flawlessly when supported by the market,
[11:53] {Threei} but the tricky part is:
[11:53] {Threei} when market does nothing and stays in narrow range,
[11:53] {nemo} gld
[11:53] {Threei} GLD doesn't,
[11:53] {Threei} instead it pretends to form setup and trigger,
[11:53] {Threei} then ruins the play by sharp countermove
[11:54] {Threei} So, if this observation is correct, it's a player when the arket moves and "leave it alone" when it doesn't,
[11:54] {Threei} or better yet:
[11:54] {Threei} let's track down such "setup"
[11:54] {Threei} and fade it
[11:55] {Threei} let's papertrade this one for instance
[11:55] {Threei} .25 long
[11:55] {Threei} if stays above .15
[11:56] {Threei} market is locked, so by that theory it's likely to pretend to break down, then jump sharply
[11:56] {Threei} market selloff though will turn it into real breakdown
[11:58] {Threei} .20 break
[11:58] {Threei} if holding .10
[11:59] {fernp} paper?
[11:59] {Threei} or smallish shares
[11:59] {Threei} just testing the idea
[11:59] {fernp} ok
[11:59] {Threei} trying to turn enemy into friend
[11:59] {fernp} lol
[12:01] {Threei} modification #2
[12:02] {Threei} .16 trigger
[12:02] {Threei} if holdin above .10 again
[12:02] {fernp} feels like a nice breakdown (this is the typical breakdown I play)

Prior to this declaration if a hospital shipped a patient offsite, it would be refused reimbursement for services provided.
[09:15] {Threei} - H1N1 has been reported to be widespread in 46 states, which officals have deemed equal to the peak of a normal flu season.

[11:20] {nemo} cat could drop from here, flirting around 200 ma
[11:20] {Threei} that sharp dive in the market created many shorts that were not readable as the moment
[11:21] {Threei} no setup, simply drop
[11:21] {nemo} HIG had been dancing at .85, pulled back, and droppe again
[11:21] {nemo} I kan mystipe awl eye wont
[11:22] {Threei} I liked GLD as short, but it ruined the setup

[11:29] {fernp} stop?
[11:29] {Threei} if market breaks down here which seems to be the most likely scenario, let's try to use QID for the play
[11:30] {Threei} stop under .40
[11:30] {fernp} ty Vad
[11:31] {Threei} quick resolution
[11:31] {Threei} 1:1 was easy
[11:32] {dino} out rovi stopped -.15, stoppee intc -.10
[11:33] {Threei} 1:2
[11:33] {Threei} finally something worked exactly as it should
[11:33] {dino} nice read vad
[11:33] {Threei} ty
[11:33] {magoo} jersus dow red 30
[11:34] {Threei} and notice larisa, I keep my bet loss: I didn't type "eqzaktly"
[11:35] {larisa} :)
[11:37] {strider} sohu short?
[11:37] {Threei} not sure...
[11:37] {dino} waiting for long here
[11:38] {dino} .50s held again
[11:38] {strider} k
[11:38] {Threei} 1:3 QID but that's wothout me
[11:38] {Threei} without
[11:38] {dino} pulp tho, careful
[11:38] {fernp} yeah, scalper's regret here. but i need some winners...
[11:39] {Threei} don't regret it for a second fern
[11:40] {Threei} market is absolutely brutal last few days in terms of non-readable moves,
[11:40] {fernp} right
[11:40] {Threei} and it will stay this way until topping action is resolved
[11:40] {Threei} think about it in these terms:
[11:41] {Threei} maximum uncertainty is normal for bottoms and tops
[11:41] {Threei} much easier and more readable action is happening when the trend establishes itself
[11:41] {fernp} true
[11:41] {Threei} what we have here is market trying to form a top,
[11:42] {Threei} and this is area of a fight between trend-continuation-hoping crowd
[11:42] {Threei} and reversal-betting crowd.
[11:42] {Threei} Until they resolve their differences and someone wins, we have this jerky up and down with not much rhyme or reason
[11:43] {Threei} One controls his risk tightly, makes sure that no losing trade gets out of hand,
[11:43] {dino} sm l sohu .54 wide
[11:43] {Threei} and one of risk control methods in jerky market is limiting trades to scalps
[11:43] {nemo} cat at Fri. close
[11:44] {fernp} let's see if it is resolved soon
[11:46] {dino} pvtb sm l .90
[11:51] {Threei} YRCW Hearing vague chatter of possible new financing information due soon (3.43, +0.10, 3.00%)
[11:51] {Threei} guys, valid setup for downtrend continuation from here is QID long on .9- break,
[11:51] {Threei} and my bet is it will fail
[11:52] {Threei} let's just watch it to see whether market continues its evilish ways
[11:52] {Threei} or starts fitting into normal patterns
[11:53] {nemo} sds
[11:53] {Threei} normal pattern would be .90 break and steady strong move to 22.20 or so,
[11:53] {Threei} evilish jerky way would be drop to 21.60
[11:54] {Threei} not going to trade eithger, just want to observe
[11:58] {Threei} wow... we may be getting normal patterns back
[11:58] {Threei} this is encouraging
[11:58] {nemo} what's magoo doing?
[11:58] {fernp} very
[11:59] {Threei} Equity and commodity market weakness attributed to a variety of vague rumors circulating
[11:59] {Threei} - some desks noting the strength in the USD(moves back below 1.5000 level), citing the Brazilian central bank buying dollars in the spot market, though we would note that the Brazilian central bank does this frequently, including four times last week.
[11:59] {Threei} - other desks noting concerns about the report today that the White House and Barney Frank's committee are close to an agreement on resolution authority that would includes requiring some large banks to hold more money in reserve.
[11:59] {Threei} - some unconfirmed chatter circulating that a ratings downgrade on major banks could be imminent from S&P.
[11:59] {dino} sohu stopped
[11:59] {Threei} another banking sector rumor being recirculated today suggests that BoA may seek to do another capital raise.
[11:59] {Threei} - yet another point of concern is recirculating chatter that the US may not extend the new home buyer tax credit, which is set to expire on Dec 1.
[11:59] {nemo} Funny...watched Quantum of Solice this weekend...even the bad guys won't take dollars anymore
[12:01] {ese} thats funny

[13:13] {Threei} SP issues report on Global Housing; showing signs of some bright spots
[13:13] {Threei} - The U.S. housing market, for example, has shown some momentum. Housing starts and home sales are climbing back from lows early this year, and home prices are rising after sharp drops that began in 2006
[13:13] {Threei} - for a few U.S. homebuilders, credit quality is firming, though that could change in the months ahead, as the negative outlooks on 11 of the 15 homebuilders we rate indicate. Despite signs of a slight real estate rebound, we believe our ratings on many of these companies will likely remain under pressure through the balance of the year and probably into 2010.
[13:18] {fernp} MGM valid dbi but wrong time?

[13:47] {fernp} EBAY dbi?
[13:47] {Threei} if market helps, but for scalp only
[13:48] {Threei} daily is rather bottoming on it

[14:02] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 1.53B shares, about 5% above its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.9:1.
[14:02] {Threei} - VIX index +8.5% to just over 24.00
[14:02] {nemo} wow...
[14:02] {nemo} that's a jump
[14:02] {nemo} options must be selling like hot cakes
[14:09] {fernp} Vad, SKS short .14 for 5 cent scalp do u think is good idea?
[14:11] {Threei} too narrow IMO
[14:12] {Threei} getting 5 cents out of it will be torture
[14:12] {Threei} let alone more
[14:12] {fernp} thanks
[14:19] {Threei} if reversal gains momentum and takes root more confidently, we will have QID breakout working

[14:25] {Threei} you have to admit, I am much much better today
[14:25] {larisa} you are, keep trying your best :)
[14:25] {Threei} ty for encouragement
[14:26] {Threei} and I edited out two mistypes in "encouragement" before hitting enter
[14:26] {fernp} lol
[14:26] {Threei} and one in word "enter"
[14:27] {Threei} but I nail "and" almost every time
[14:27] {larisa} you know what? just concentrate on trading and forget retyping. Just make sure symbol is right :)
[14:27] {nemo} nice one
[14:27] {fernp} good one
[14:28] {nemo} vad got bitch slapped!
[14:28] {Threei} not much to trade right now anyway
[14:28] {Threei} question is:
[14:28] {larisa} it was not slapping.. he is forgiven!!
[14:28] {nemo} back-handed albeit
[14:28] {Threei} do we break down this narrow range formed over last 2 and half hours
[14:29] {Threei} or market breaks upper limit and returns into meaningless territory
[14:29] {Threei} range itself is too narrow to play within it,
[14:29] {nemo} which would aggravate the most people?
[14:29] {Threei} no indication which side is more likely to give up
[14:29] {Threei} so I sit it out for now
[14:30] {larisa} very tough market I agree
[14:31] {Threei} we got first half of the day mostly right
[14:31] {Threei} hopefully it's a sign of market finding the direction or us getting back in tune with it
[14:32] {nemo} last mon and tuesday were good
[14:32] {Threei} don't want to ruin the harmony, fragile as it is, by pushing aything while in narrow range
[14:39] {Threei} Long Setup: QID .20 break
[14:39] {fernp} SKS worked, patterns are gradually gaining credibility
[14:39] {Threei} if stays above .10
[14:50] {Threei} ok market
[14:50] {Threei} breakdown is in cards
[14:50] {Threei} just do it
[14:51] {strider} Qs making dbl bottom
[14:51] {Threei} larisa, dino
[14:51] {Threei} bets on the close?
[14:51] {Threei} -180 here
[14:51] {larisa} -160 :)
[14:51] {larisa} wow, we are on same page, not good :)
[14:51] {dino} -65
[14:51] {larisa} lol
[14:51] {Threei} 20 points apart
[14:51] {Threei} and dino doesn't diasppoint :)
[14:51] {dino} lol
[14:52] {Threei} I don't see double bottom strider
[14:52] {Threei} I see multiple attempts at low
[14:52] {strider} ok. multiple bottom:)
[14:52] {Threei} this is 6th or 7th one
[14:52] {Threei} tightenting range too
[14:53] {strider} so, I needed to spread my chart out a bit.
[14:53] {Threei} I watch whole day
[14:54] {nemo} markets strengthening
[14:56] {strider} stop at .09?

[15:42] {nemo} fcx staying just below 200 fwma
[15:45] {Threei} ewell... so far market justg stayd in the range, rendering attempts to play breaks useless

[15:49] {nemo} dollar has held all afternoon

[15:50] {Threei} larisa... we need vacation
[15:50] {Threei} look how dino pins it down
[15:50] {larisa} 10 more minutes!
[15:51] {Threei} yeah... but it's safe to say he will be closer to final number than any of us :)
[15:51] {dino} "safe", not in todays market imo, lol
[15:51] {larisa} lol
[15:58] {dino} see
[15:59] {nemo} aig w/mind of its own
[16:01] {dino} maybe that equity falls in the barney worthless class too
[16:01] {nemo} not if you trade it profitably
[16:01] {dino} lol
[16:01] {Threei} thank you all
[16:01] {dino} good point
[16:01] {Threei} have a good evening, see you tomorrow

Oct 23 2009

One of the toughest weeks in quite a while. Topping action but no reversal yet. Slightly negative day if you played "official" calls only, hugely positive if hit AMZN momo long - but how many have heart for that? Congratulations to our most risk-tolerant member who lives for such plays.

[10:55] {Threei} big bid .10 got hit
[10:56] {Threei} IA) WSJ: Iran has pulled away from nuclear agreement; prefers to purchase nuclear fuel needed for reactor rather than shipping uranium abroard
[10:56] {Threei} new low
[10:56] {Threei} **Note: earlier today a US Govt Spokesman said that US has told IAEA's El-baradei that it accepts the UN proposal for Iran nuclear issue; "looks forward to Iran's reply"
[10:56] {Threei} 1:1
[10:57] {Threei} covering half

[11:06] {Threei} it's easy...
[11:06] {Threei} like long, just in opposite direction
[11:06] {strider} the same, but different.
[11:06] {ese} yup....stigma....will get over it
[11:06] {Threei} and don't forget to sell first, buy later... unlike long where you buy first, sell later
[11:06] {nemo} too bad there isn't an inversion setting on charts
[11:07] {nemo} I see shorts easier than I see longs
[11:07] {magoo} shorts are DAD AMZN ...DEAD
[11:07] {ese} FERN.....can ya believe this though....we follow the blindly and he calls us "SISSIES"!!!! man
[11:07] {nemo} In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king
[11:08] {ese} ahhhhh yup
[11:08] {magoo} DEAD i tell ya....DDDDEEEEEAAADDDDDDDDDDDDD'
[11:08] {nemo} who what where DEAD?
[11:08] {ese} it's rather stunning to be honest mags
[11:09] {nemo} honest?
[11:09] {ese} but what gave you the 117.43 target though
[11:09] {fernp} es ese, he is incorrigible
[11:09] {ese} definitly
[11:09] {Threei} well, two things
[11:10] {Threei} first, I enjoy it... why would you refuse me little fun I derive from slapping, insulting and otherwise gurting good people
[11:10] {Threei} second, and less relevant: stop was ABOVE .20
[11:10] {Threei} not .20 itself
[11:10] {magoo} target 117.43
[11:10] {Threei} but first point is much more importasnt
[11:11] {ese} ya how did you get that target
[11:11] {magoo} put that in way earlier too
[11:11] {magoo} liker hours ago lol
[11:11] {magoo} DEAD DEAD DEAD
[11:13] {ese} I can tell vad.....point #1 is much more enjoyable for you
[11:13] {magoo} magic 8-ball ese..i asked it...117.43...it replied it would seem so
[11:15] {ese} hasn't cracked has it?
[11:15] {Threei} Microsoft Corp Ticking lower after a CNBC makes erroneous report regarding guidance; CNBC misreported the earlier Operating Expense guidance cut as a Revenue guidance cut
[11:15] {Threei} - earlier MSFT said it was cutting operating expenses guidance to $26.2B from $26.5B for FY ended June 30, 2010.
[11:15] {Threei} - follow up 11:10amET: CNBC corrects its error.
[11:18] {fernp} GLD Vad
[11:18] {Threei} you know, I am a bit hesitant to trade this one
[11:19] {Threei} reason is, I am biased
[11:19] {Threei} I am what goldbugs consder their worst enemy: one who thinks gold's intrinsic value is non-existent
[11:19] {fernp} ok I understand
[11:19] {Threei} well, aside from industrial applications and bling
[11:19] {ese} hmmmmmm explain please
[11:20] {nemo} short on FCX? need pullback?
[11:20] {Threei} I'd be shorting GLD left and right, lol
[11:21] {strider} would that be a bad thing:)
[11:21] {Threei} ese... there are people who think gold has some deeper value than whatever masses are willing to pay for it
[11:21] {Threei} store of value... currency...
[11:21] {Threei} to me, it's own intrinsic value is none
[11:21] {ese} yup....agreed
[11:22] {Threei} you can agree to have seashells as currency
[11:22] {nemo} yep was bear flag
[11:22] {Threei} and some civilizations did in the past
[11:22] {ese} i just think it's historical intrinsic value
[11:22] {Threei} and the only advantage gold has over those is it's not as fragile
[11:22] {ese} agreed
[11:23] {Threei} gold standard makes zero sense to me
[11:24] {larisa} but how it connects to daytrading it? you either like how stock trades or not. Most of the stocks you trade you do not give a damn abut their value, you read the tape.
[11:24] {magoo} dow under 10k
[11:24] {ese} well at least since they discarded breton woods in the early 70's
[11:24] {Threei} true laridsas, my point is:
[11:24] {larisa} now i am laridsas
[11:24] {Threei} being skeptical about underlying assset may impact the judgement and create bias
[11:25] {Threei} US) Speaker Pelosi: reiterates House health bill will include the public option, but still working out the details of the plan
[11:25] {Threei} this gal is determined
[11:26] {Threei} see what I mean? I catch myself thinking short every time I look at GLD chart
[11:26] {larisa} I understand, it is like stock of the company you work for, always optimistic :)
[11:27] {Threei} I guess... I never worked for any company but I understand the mindset
[11:27] {larisa} bias you can not read of no matter how hard you try
[11:27] {Threei} rid too
[11:27] {larisa} right
[11:28] {Threei} yes... exactly what I mean
[11:28] {Threei} when I feel this in myself, I have to be double careful
[11:28] {larisa} vad can spell after all
[11:29] {Threei} and that's the biggest surprise for today
[11:29] {ese} mags you still amzn?
[11:29] {Threei} strange disconnection

[12:19] {strider} if BO fails on BRCM, will it be a short?
[12:19] {nemo} rimm short again...
[12:19] {Threei} .20 is support to break for it to trigger short
[12:19] {Threei} BRCM I measn
[12:20] {strider} would you call it as an official setup?
[12:21] {strider} got 3 candles dipping to .17

[12:24] {Threei} why failed?
[12:25] {Threei} .35 is resistance
[12:25] {Threei} didn't go above it
[12:25] {strider} failed to break resistance.
[12:25] {Threei} I'd say it's still valid
[12:25] {Threei} oh
[12:25] {Threei} lol
[12:25] {nemo} brcm broke trendline
[12:25] {nemo} looking short
[12:25] {strider} sometimes failure is a good thing, no?
[12:26] {nemo} has long as it's not in a duel

[13:23] {Threei} RIMM...
[13:24] {Threei} if market breaks down, 66 break is a good short setup
[13:25] {strider} wide stop?
[13:26] {Threei} .20...
[13:29] {Threei} if sets up from here, .15 will be good as a stop

[13:56] {nemo} I've avoided stops today...so that's good
[13:56] {nemo} question, is this an index bear flag

[13:57] {nemo} yeah

[14:13] {Threei} - VIX index +7% to just over 22.00
[14:18] {strider} I think we're getting close to seeing who the biggest fool is...on amzn

[14:23] {magoo} hope its not magoo
[14:24] {Threei} no breakdown

[14:48] {strider} and buy there?
[14:48] {Threei} ah
[14:49] {Threei} famous "buy me yesterday" feature
[14:49] {Threei} usually comes in the kit with tomorrow's WSJ subscription
[14:49] {strider} and the 'if it dont go up don't buy it' button
[14:50] {strider} in RIMM .99

[14:52] {Threei} life, universe and everything
[14:52] {nemo} yw
[14:52] {strider} did I misss anyone?
[14:52] {Threei} that was fern though who spotted it
[14:52] {strider} sorry. Thanks fern.
[14:52] {strider} never mind, nemo
[14:52] {Threei} rofl
[14:52] {strider} you guys look so much alike.
[14:52] {nemo} [14:35] {nemo} RIMM sneaking up on 66 again
[14:52] {fernp} nemo inspired me
[14:52] {Threei} plant and fish??
[14:53] {nemo} Threei=ham
[14:53] {Threei} check your sight strider...
[14:53] {Threei} 118 be taken now
[14:53] {larisa} vad, you think it is possible big brokers provide "them" the info on retail positions/stops/margin calls to fuel the short squeezes ? I really wonder how it is orchestrated. if you analize millions of accounts, the picture can be telling.
[14:53] {Threei} nah
[14:54] {larisa} I feel some structure behind it, can not explain what it is though :)
[14:54] {Threei} conspiracy involving that many people in such organized fashion can't stay undercover for than 5 minutes
[14:54] {Threei} there is structure, you are absolutely right
[14:54] {nemo} It'a Aasimov's "Foundation"
[14:54] {Threei} but it's based on the same thing all setups are based on
[14:55] {strider} my lvl 1 shows high of amzn at 119.65
[14:55] {Threei} stops are generally placed in the vicinityh of the same prices
[14:55] {strider} did I miss something?
[14:55] {nemo} Hey! witch index Amazon in?
[14:55] {nemo} yeah, mine too
[14:55] {nemo} which
[14:55] {strider} sell short!
[14:57] {nemo} I wonder how much Amazon is skewing Naz performance today?
[14:57] {strider} that must be the biggest fool...119.65
[14:58] {magoo} is that legit
[14:58] {strider} rimm again?
[14:59] {strider} dunno mags...it's there
[15:03] {Threei} I don't see it on chart
[15:03] {Threei} I doubt it
[15:03] {strider} just a 3 bar consol.
[15:03] {Threei} 118.56 is high on daily chart
[15:03] {strider} awhile ago.
[15:03] {nemo} this last hour could be precarious
[15:04] {strider} are shorts likely to push it up at end of day?
[15:04] {bkhmd} Vad your read on IP?
[15:04] {Threei} I don't have any... it's slow and narrow
[15:04] {dptl} have a good weekend all
[15:05] {Threei} mirroring market very much
[15:05] {Threei} take care dp
[15:05] {fernp} bye dp
[15:05] {strider} dp:)
[15:05] {Threei} probaly will cntinue doing so and go with market
[15:05] {nemo} just a silly feeling, but, as Vad says, it ain't gonna' be easy shorts will probably cover some incase there's a crapload of good news that comes out
[15:05] {bkhmd} ahh i see that now
[15:09] {strider} bear flag on RIMM
[15:09] {nemo} s1 is .81, see if it stalls here
[15:11] {strider} 17.60 a buy AMZN?
[15:12] {Threei} I'll go on a limb and say
[15:12] {Threei} AMZN is done
[15:13] {larisa} I think it will push for day high by eod
[15:13] {nemo} It's holding a nice trend line though
[15:13] {magoo} i think more up
[15:13] {larisa} lol
[15:13] {strider} yeah, what you all said.
[15:13] {nemo} What...take viagra magoo?
[15:14] {magoo} i think larisa got it right
[15:14] {nemo} what, "lol"
[15:14] {larisa} 120 is so close.. have to push

Oct 22 2009

One of those days when nothing works. Narrow range is not our favorite type of the day, and that's what the market spent most of the day in. When it broke out of the range, our fingers were cut enough times for us to sit it out. 2 or 3 plays worked vs 5 or 6 stops - all small but a few too many.

Session Time: Thu Oct 22 00:00:00 2009

[08:01] {magoo} morning
[08:01] {nemo} mags
[08:02] {magoo} hey cap'n..how was yesterday trading?
[08:04] {nemo} lackluster until the end, although there was an ipo where 3i was saying, "This is magoo's kind of trade"
[08:10] {bkhmd} gm all
[08:11] {nemo} harooo
[08:14] {magoo} where is the cranky ole boy this morn lol?
[08:14] {nemo} should be here...
[08:14] {magoo} was yesterday up day in mkts?
[08:15] {nemo} until the last 45 minutes, then tanked big time
[08:17] {Threei} good morning
[08:18] {KSystems} hey
[08:18] {Threei} ks :)
[08:19] {Threei} mags, yesterday was one of strongest confirmations of reversal in the markets we could ask for
[08:19] {magoo} vas:)
[08:22] {Threei} did you have a snow to clean yesterday or what?
[08:24] {magoo} no..but i had business to take care of..never came into office

[08:31] {magoo} vad..since i was out..whats your "feel" for today?
[08:32] {Threei} today hasn't even started yet... :)
[08:33] {Threei} since I switch to bearish mode, overall feel is down, but which days are bounce and which are straight down is the question
[08:35] {magoo} u thinking bear mkt rally has ended...or just healthy breather which everone but everyone has been calling is upon us
[08:35] {Threei} breather but much more heavy one that we had throughout the rally
[08:36] {Threei} not return to March lows though
[08:36] {Threei} quite possibly end to the rally in a sense of being locked in (quite wide) range for a while
[08:38] {nemo} FITB loss widens
[08:40] {fernp} Good morning everybody

[09:24] {Threei} EBAY posted guidance yesterday
[09:24] {Threei} Guides FY09 EPS $1.41-1.43, Rev $7.95B-$8.05B (ex Skype)
[09:24] {Threei} - Implies FY09 EPS $1.54-1.56 v $1.52e, R$8.65-8.75B v $8.5Be
[09:24] {Threei} - Note: Guided Skype EPS around $0.13 on Rev of about $700M
[09:25] {Threei} doesn't mean much by itself but considering reaction and market olverall, I'd look for short on it
[09:25] {strider} ERIC gap down
[09:26] {_mreust} thanks
[09:26] {Threei} either on a good bounce and when market reverses down,
[09:26] {Threei} or nice tight consolidation, then breakdown
[09:26] {Threei} for instance, 25.05 break is stays under .15
[09:26] {Threei} is = if
[09:27] {_mreust} thanks
[09:27] {Threei} just an example, don't view it as a call - morning volatility will probably be too big for such tight call
[09:28] {cosmo} LOGI tests 19.80
[09:28] {Threei} now... why's HIG so happy
[09:30] {strider} HIG glad to see you

[14:58] {Threei} US) House votes to accelerate implementation of new credit card rules, to take effect 12/1
[14:58] {Threei} - This approval moves up the effective date of the legislation to Dec 1, from February 2010.
[14:58] {Threei} - Note also that the measure includes a provision that gives states and municipalities greater control over lending practices in their own jurisdiction by requiring lenders to comply with all local standards, whereas in the past, local standards were preempted by federal standards and the requirements of the state in which the lender is incorporated.
[14:58] {Threei} ***Reminder: On 10/21 Fed's Bernanke commented that moving the implementation date for Credit Card Accountability Act to 12/1 could have unintended consequences. Early implementation could benefit consumers, although smaller businesses may have difficulty in implementing measures.

Oct 21 2009

Not a very active day, and mostly flat monetary wise. We expected reversal to the downside, but it came with no clear setups not really offering opportunity to profit. Doesn't matter much though - we seem to finally start the descent, and there will be enough opportunities. Relentless climb up was becoming tired.

[15:24] {nemo} yeah, for us masochists
[15:25] {Threei} [09:55] {Threei} but my woprking assumption at this point is:
[15:25] {Threei} [09:55] {Threei} it's not a rally anymore,
[15:25] {Threei} [09:55] {Threei} it's last shakeouts before plunging,

[15:33] {Threei} what's recent?
[15:34] {Threei} 3 months sounds reasonable tome
[15:34] {nemo} my measurements are average of last 100 days

[10:02] {strider} small
[10:04] {Threei} not comfortable with it strider
[10:06] {fernp} HIG 27.50 break?, too evident Vad?
[10:06] {Threei} just looking at it too
[10:06] {Threei} no
[10:06] {Threei} let's skip it
[10:06] {fernp} agree
[10:06] {Threei} and let's make a little pause and look around
[10:07] {Threei} here is what I see and what makes me hesitant
[10:07] {Threei} we opened the day with two huge earning beats by two bellweathers
[10:07] {Threei} went into red after that
[10:08] {Threei} another ovservation over past few days:
[10:08] {Threei} volume sharply increased on a rare red day last week,
[10:08] {Threei} and diminished again on green days
[10:08] {nemo} was down on yesterday
[10:08] {Threei} you know I am not the one to call trend reversal
[10:08] {Threei} at least not easily
[10:08] {Threei} but this is more and more looking like topping action
[10:09] {Threei} also, you may have noticed somewhat increased number of short calls lately
[10:09] {Threei} (winning ones too)
[10:09] {Threei} and it's not like I made a conscious decision to start calling more shorts,
[10:09] {fernp} I did not realize about volume that red day. good point
[10:09] {Threei} it's just that short setups started presenting themselves more frequently
[10:10] {Threei} All above is pointing to signs of reversal coming
[10:10] {Threei} BUT
[10:10] {Threei} there is always a bit
[10:11] {Threei} we have seen false reversals a few times over the summer
[10:11] {larisa} a bit of but?
[10:11] {Threei} we didn't trust those, I continuously stated that those were just pullbacks,
[10:11] {Threei} right
[10:12] {Threei} and there is a probablility, albeit decreasing, that this one may turn out a fake too
[10:12] {Threei} If it does, I don't want to get caught attempting to short just another bull flag,
[10:13] {Threei} and it does not look to me like bull flag at the moment,
[10:13] {Threei} neither volume configuration nor this going red on good earnings fit profile.
[10:13] {Threei} So, here is what I want to do:
[10:14] {Threei} 1. stop guessing whether it's reversal or pullback
[10:14] {Threei} 2. observe carefully for confirmation of either
[10:14] {Threei} 3. take setups on stock by stock and minute by minute basis
[10:15] {Threei} 4. stay nimble and limit expectations to scalps unless I feel otherwise strongly enough to call it "not a scalp"
[10:15] {Threei} 5. even in thiose cases partial out at 1:1 and trail stop to b/e religiously, just as we did with CAT
[10:16] {Threei} done blabbing
[10:16] {nemo} that shouldn't last long
[10:16] {Threei} what?
[10:16] {strider} sounds good to me.
[10:16] {nemo} done blabbing
[10:16] {Threei} ah
[10:16] {nemo} sorry...it was right there
06[10:17] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large heavy object of unknownm origin
[10:17] {Threei} this was too
[10:17] {nemo} mmmmhhh...pine cone hit me off the head...anyway indexes about to test lows
[10:18] {Threei} oh, and another thing
[10:18] {strider} klac in funky H&S
[10:18] {nemo} see
[10:18] {Threei} 6. look into increase of range trades
[10:18] {Threei} instead of range breaks
[10:18] {Threei} to illustrate:
[10:18] {Threei} look at HIG
[10:18] {nemo} aig holding strong
[10:18] {Threei} .50 break wouldn't have worked
[10:19] {fernp} was looking at it
[10:19] {Threei} but scalps between .40 and .55 would
[10:19] {nemo} $ stronger
[10:20] {Raven} {--------- approves of 3i's comments
[10:20] {Threei} thank you

[10:24] {magoo} more
[10:24] {nemo} it would have to break .10
[10:24] {Threei} to me it's just a question of where the bounce tops so we could short it

[12:24] {strider} Hey. You sold me all these Boooooooogus DVDs showing you use RSI!
[12:24] {Threei} uhhu
[12:24] {Threei} you are being deceived
[12:24] {strider} I knew it.
[12:24] {Threei} badly
[12:24] {Threei} my purpose in life is to promote RSI while I don't use it myself
[12:24] {strider} Some guy with a bad russian accent is using it.
[12:25] {nemo} he's running for office next year
[12:25] {ese} rotfl
[12:26] {Threei} on the othjer hand, if you are interested in BBs, that setting may be of interest to you since I use non-standard one for intraday
[12:26] {strider} I should have been suspicious when you picked RSI over volume on the 1 min chart.
[12:26] {nemo} 13 period 1.7 standard deviations
[12:27] {strider} not 1.69?
[12:27] {nemo} funny...you have to turn around on that setting
[12:29] {fernp} Vad uses RSI 10 on those videos. There's a video explaining configuration
[12:30] {Threei} right
[12:30] {Threei} and I forgot exact settings
[12:30] {fernp} lol
[12:30] {Threei} and abandoned RSI since then
[12:31] {strider} that one must be extra.......the configuration video.
[12:31] {Threei} not that there isd anything wrong with it
[12:31] {nemo} hgsi short?
[12:31] {Threei} but I tend to simplify things
[12:31] {strider} the ac/dc oscillator
[12:31] {nemo} Seinfeld oscillator
[12:31] {strider} yes
[12:32] {Threei} no read HGSI
[12:32] {nemo} yeah, it went short
[12:35] {strider} RIMM also?
[12:35] {Threei} ewverytyhing looks short
[12:36] {Threei} problem is, it doesn't follow through generally
[12:36] {nemo} indexes are pretty flat
[12:36] {Threei} market is not dropping like crazy, it's just slowly rolling over, and today is one of first days of such rollover
[12:37] {Threei} can't expect shorts to start working flawlessly right away
[12:37] {Threei} it's like nww OS by MSFT... gotta work out kinks first
[12:37] {strider} would you say shorts are in a bind?
[12:38] {nemo} look at gap on 15 minute chart rimm
[12:38] {nemo} support right here
[12:38] {Threei} I don't know what it means
[12:39] {nemo} o.k. well, if it rises to .40 and stalls, we looking at a short setup
[12:39] {nemo} ?
[12:40] {Threei} .50 rather
[12:42] {strider} L.fitb@.48
[12:47] {Threei} now RIMM is better candidate for short if market resumes downward
[12:48] {ese} nice entry strider
[12:48] {strider} hope so
[12:51] {Threei} lol, you have 1:1 here stirder
[12:52] {strider} :)
[12:52] {ese} your fine......
[12:52] {Threei} beauty of aggressive entries
[12:53] {nemo} this is looking more like a market turn
[12:53] {Threei} lol... Halloween costume: suit and tie with mask of Bernie Madoff, calls "Whack a Ponzie"
[12:53] {strider} DIA already has a nice dbl bottom.
[12:55] {larisa} 5 seconds trade on STT :) laser is good
[12:56] {Threei} wait... Laser did?? or you did?
[12:56] {Threei} 'cause if Laser, I want that feature
[12:56] {larisa} lol
06[12:56] * Threei is looking around for "5 seconds winning trade" button
[12:57] {strider} I think you can either pick the button or the RSI feature. You got RSI.
[12:57] {lasertrev} that costs extra
[12:57] {Threei} sigh
[12:58] {Threei} how about "refuse to execute losing trades" button?
[12:58] {lasertrev} lol
[12:59] {ese} rotfl
[13:05] {Threei} AXL Hearing vague chatter of a possible large contract with Ford
[13:06] {Threei} looks like downside is done for now
[13:06] {Threei} and quite possibly for the day
[13:06] {Threei} but I seriously hope to see red close
[13:06] {larisa} -130 finish :)
[13:07] {Threei} I hope so
[13:08] {Threei} but my bet will be -50
[13:08] {larisa} I want AAPl to roll over. holding so far
[13:08] {larisa} too safe bet.. boring
[13:08] {Threei} I am boring
[13:09] {larisa} agree with me or say +130
[13:09] {Threei} if you see a crowd yawning and snorring, you can bet I am in the middle, trying to entertain them
[13:10] {Threei} Alan Greenspan told me I was too boring for him
[13:10] {Threei} if you watched him speaking just once, that should tell you something
[13:10] {larisa} lol
[13:12] {ese} ya know....dino would have loved micc
[13:12] {ese} I should have traded it in his honor
[13:12] {larisa} I traded STT in his honor :)
[13:13] {larisa} so you do not have to
[13:13] {Threei} I feel ashamed... I haven't done anything in his honor
[13:13] {ese} but alas no....L swks .95
[13:13] {nemo} tell a corny joke
[13:13] {Threei} nah, I can't even hope to beat that very large moth one
[13:16] {strider} Don't you just love it when your damn cable company decides to work on the lines in the middle of the day...and just cuts you off?
[13:17] {strider} Have a DSL backup....
[13:19] {strider} Is it possible FITB was just toying with our affections?
[13:19] {Threei} we have any?
[13:20] {strider} infections?
[13:20] {Threei} same question...
[13:20] {strider} one leads to the other.
[13:21] {nemo} good one
[13:21] {Threei} lol... reminded me my dialog with pro photographer
[13:22] {Threei} I told him about difficulty I had with one partuclar focusing situation
[13:22] {Threei} continuous focus on moving target where camera was supposed to track subject once locked focus on it
[13:22] {Threei} his advice was:
[13:22] {Threei} try STD
[13:23] {Threei} me: say what?
[13:23] {Threei} turned out there is aconfiguration called Single Target Dynamic
[13:24] {Threei} RIMM{ bounce cadidate
[13:24] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM .60 break if holding .50
[13:26] {Threei} (US) Dark Pool Trading Limit to be cut 95% in SEC Proposal
[13:26] {Threei} - Note: Dark Pool orders are issued programatically by computers and grey/black box programmers, shown on an ECN for 30ms or less and as a result are inside the window for dissemination to the broad tape and ECN's. Program traders use this to hunt for depth or to feel out how to trade a stock without showing their hand to the public at large or even other professionals that watch the tape. Dark pools are off exchange platforms run by the likes of Goldman Sachs and Getco LLC.
[13:31] {strider} in RIMM .61
[13:35] {strider} out .49
[13:35] {Threei} didn't it lose .50 before breakming .60?
[13:36] {strider} if it did, I missed it.
[13:36] {Threei} 13:28
[13:37] {strider} yeah .I see it now. my bad.
[13:37] {larisa} by 1 cent
[13:37] {Threei} yes, not much but after that it spiked into resistance
[13:37] {Threei} to reestablish, stock needs to consolidate again
[13:42] {nemo} cat s beak of .45 ...shoot

[14:06] {Threei} sometimes yes
[14:07] {Threei} if it happened with borader intial range I'd be tightening stop just in case
[14:07] {Threei} but range is very tight as it is

[14:18] {Threei} ok... one thing I can promise you
[14:19] {strider} it'll go to .80
[14:19] {Threei} if we manage to sell it at 10.90, you won't hear the end of it for weeks {G}
[14:19] {strider} i know...i know
[14:19] {strider} ka-ching
[14:21] {fernp} i am thinkin to hold some shares overnight
[14:21] {strider} you'd think that a stock in such great demand would bring a higher price.
[14:21] {Threei} you gambler you

[14:21] {Threei} let's decide near close, depending on how it acts'

[15:15] {Threei} hard to answer hypotetical
[15:15] {Threei} I'd need to see it forming, see interaction with market
[15:17] {strider} No strider's famous 'looks like it's going down' setup?
[15:17] {strider} not
[15:18] {strider} a break of .47 here would be break of support.
[15:18] {strider} .46
[15:19] {Threei} every time it dipped so far, it jumped back up with vengeance
[15:19] {Threei} too big risk to run into false breakdown

[08:11] {Threei} NYT article comments on new obesity drugs
[08:11] {Threei} - Notes the market has been most excited about Vivus' QNEXA.
[08:11] {Threei} - Orexigen's obesity treatment CONTRAVE and Arena's LORCASERIN have underperformed Vivus' QNEXA in trials.
[08:11] {Threei} - One challenge for QNEXA might be safety as the drug contains phentermine (which was part of the notorious fen-phen combination) and topiramate which makes people feel satiated.
[08:11] {Threei} - According to Vivus, QNEXA has only small quantities of phentermine and topiramate.
[08:11] {Threei} - Some doctors are already prescribing phentermine and topiramate separately, which could hurt sales of QNEXA.

[09:21] {Threei} it's harmful, painful and overall damaging
[09:21] {strider} [07:18] * Topic is 'Don't interrupt your brain's work by thinking'
[09:21] {Threei} yup
[09:23] {Threei} I don't have clear candidates for ther open
[09:24] {Threei} watching IMMU, VVUS, HIG, CIT
[09:25] {Threei} as it's often the case with Mondays, market seems a bit puzzled by itself
[09:25] {Threei} http://realitytrader.com/vad/Mondays-Suck-Video.wmv
[09:26] {Threei} so... not trying to find a trade immediately, giving it a few to see if something shapes up

[09:35] {magoo} missed
[09:35] {strider} me too
[09:37] {_mreust} That was a great introduction to th room!
[09:37] {Threei} would be even better if it let more people in
[09:38] {magoo} xmas tree complete rimm
[09:38] {Threei} let's see if we get double bottom here
[09:39] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM .95 break half lot
[09:39] {Threei} awww
[09:39] {Threei} too fast again
[09:39] {Threei} this time too fast even to type an alert
[09:39] {Threei} ok... off to something else
[09:41] {Threei} HIG, watch for pullback,
[09:41] {Threei} most likely entry zone is around .70
[09:42] {Threei} with stop under .60
[09:43] {strider} lmdia trying
[09:44] {ese} welcome mreust.....
[09:44] {Threei} HIG is getting there, get ready
[09:44] {magoo} mkts losing ground here
[09:45] {Threei} first strength from here
[09:45] {Threei} .70 break
[09:45] {Threei} if holding .60
[09:46] {fernp} in
[09:46] {Threei} big offer at .71
[09:46] {Threei} why not let it diccipate first
[09:48] {Threei} in

[09:49] {Threei} you guys are relentless in your scalping zeal
[09:49] {Threei} {--- look who is talking
[09:49] {strider} market looks like crap:)
[09:49] {dino} vmi death roll continues
[09:51] {_mreust} Pretty good so far, especially for a Monday!!!
[09:51] {fernp} welcome aboard mreust
[09:52] {nemo} aig DB vad?
[09:52] {nemo} oops
[09:53] {strider} lmdia holding well against the market
[09:54] {Threei} doesn't look ready to me nemo
[09:55] {Threei} HIG feels a beter prospect
[09:55] {Threei} holding much better
[09:55] {Threei} actually, I'd repeat same setup on HIG
[09:55] {Threei} only this time with even tighter stop
[09:56] {Threei} under .65
[09:56] {nemo} aig jumped
[09:56] {Threei} and AIG starts looking like short to me
[09:56] {nemo} followig resistance trend
[09:57] {Threei} trying to find entry
[09:59] {Threei} Short Setup: AIG .90 break half lot
[09:59] {Threei} if stays under 43
[10:00] {Threei} HIG not holding .65
[10:00] {Threei} no inyerest in boiunce anymore for now
[10:00] {Threei} wanted higher low, and it's not happening
[10:01] {Threei} AIG 1:1
[10:02] {Threei} but should be good for more than that
[10:02] {Threei} so let's try and partial
[10:02] {Threei} (US) NY Fed: No inference should be drawn on policy tightening
[10:02] {Threei} - Working with counterparties on reverse repo
[10:02] {Threei} - Testing ability to do repos with tri party settlement
[10:02] {Threei} - Considering expanding counterparties for repos
[10:03] {Threei} Note: On 10/08 the FT reported that the Fed has started testing reverse repo trades and that they would allow the Fed to drain cash from the financial system once it decides to exit its current extraordinarily loose policy. The Fed has conducted at least three tests of reverse repos since March.
[10:07] {nemo} amgn short?
[10:08] {Threei} good boy AIG
[10:08] {Threei} 1:2
[10:08] {Threei} no read AMGN
[10:08] {nemo} confused...after hitting 1:1 shouldn't stop been at entry?
[10:09] {Threei} with half lot?
[10:09] {Threei} shrug
[10:09] {nemo} oh
[10:09] {Threei} I'd prefer to let it go to wash
[10:09] {Threei} if it breaks initial stop
[10:09] {Threei} ity's AIG
[10:09] {Threei} too volatile to be this literal
[10:09] {Threei} 1:3
[10:09] {Threei} out in full
[10:12] {nemo} mmmhh financials popped
[10:13] {Threei} USEG, gravity finally taking over
[10:13] {Threei} keep an eye for sharp selling,
[10:13] {Threei} should become a worthy bounce candidate, desirably under 5.50
[10:14] {nemo} cat moving up 1.20
[10:17] {nemo} Well here's one where I should have been thinking...
[10:17] {nemo} Remember how AIG broke below 43.80 last week...
[10:18] {nemo} Well, it kissed it before the open and has been down hill ever since
[10:20] {magoo} u mean 6.50 right?
[10:20] {Threei} ?
[10:20] {dino} mkt bounce
[10:21] {magoo} r 5.50
[10:21] {Threei} USEG
[10:21] {magoo} yea
[10:21] {Threei} no, I mean 5.50
[10:21] {ese} l hgsi .90
[10:21] {Threei} look at daily
[10:22] {Threei} stop under .80 ese?
[10:22] {Threei} AIG wouldn't even try to bounce with market
[10:22] {Threei} why did we ever bother to cover it all
[10:23] {ese} yes
[10:23] {Threei} nice looking setup
[10:24] {dino} vmi stopped
[10:25] {ese} stopped
[10:25] {nemo} cat still climbing
[10:25] {Threei} AIG to me: you need to grow up and hold your position for real gain... when I am going, I am going
[10:25] {Threei} over a dollar form original entry
[10:26] {ese} thought with that upward movement int the qqqq it would take hgsi with it
[10:26] {Threei} that was good setup ese
[10:26] {Threei} just didn't wortk
[10:27] {Threei} Long Setup: HIG .60 break
[10:27] {ese} agreed
[10:27] {Threei} if stays above .50 for scalpers,
[10:27] {Threei} above .40 for day traders
[10:28] {magoo} in
[10:28] {fernp} in
[10:28] {Threei} remember that interesting manner in which HIG sometimes goes and goes and goes once it finds its footing?
[10:29] {Threei} with any market help, this seems to be just right moment
[10:29] {Threei} if it works, my game plan is:
[10:29] {Threei} half out around .75 - .80
[10:29] {Threei} 1/4 around .90 - .95
[10:29] {Threei} then we will see
[10:30] {ese} l hgsi .85
[10:30] {Threei} 1:1 for hardcore pesky scalpers
[10:31] {dino} all hl l .00
[10:31] {fernp} you can call me pesky, 1:1 I'm out
[10:31] {Threei} :)

Fri Oct 16 2009

Not overly active but solidly profitable day. A lot of setups got invalidated before they ever triggered - frequent occurrence when the market changes its tune.

Session Time: Fri Oct 16 00:00:00 2009

[07:59] {magoo} mornink comrades

[08:02] {magoo} ill tryt
[08:02] {strider} I'm trying to find where you can adjust the up/down arrows beside price in LVL II. I set them to move by 1/10th cent, and want to change back to 1 cent, but can't find where to do it. I assume it's somewhere in Trade Settings.
[08:08] {nemo} Strider, put mouse arrow over levelII. Right click. On menu, look for keystroke tab.
[08:08] {strider} k
[08:11] {nemo} mags, dcc

[08:11] {strider} thanks, magoo.

[08:12] {strider} Oh. that was nemo. :)
[08:12] {strider} thanks, nemo.
[08:13] {nemo} You make me feel better about myself
[08:13] {strider} fooey on you, magoo. :)
[08:13] {strider} It takes so little to make you happy, nemo.
[08:13] {nemo} I'm a simple fellow with complex issues
[08:14] {magoo} why u need email nemo
[08:14] {nemo} something funny
[08:22] {Threei} let's start the day on a good note:
[08:22] {Threei} FDIC's Bair: Liquidity crisis appears to be over - TV interview
[08:22] {nemo} yeah...printing presses solved that
[08:27] {Threei} guys, have a look at latest addition to http://www.realitytrader.com/photography/
[08:28] {Threei} joke of the day:
[08:28] {Threei} (RU) Russian PM Putin: asked Govt to evalute pros and cons of Rouble appreciation
[08:28] {Threei} - No grounds for sharp rouble swings and devaluation
[08:28] {Threei} asked govt?
[08:29] {Threei} rather: OK, here is what you do
[08:29] {nemo} Looks good for the minions
[08:29] {Threei} sounds like preparation for peg, doesn't it?

[08:32] {magoo} vad..IBM bounce candidate??
[08:33] {Threei} ty, one of my favs too
[08:33] {Threei} at some point...
[08:33] {Threei} IBM can be surprizingly volatile sometimes
[08:34] {magoo} from what 8i find..IBM wasnt bad report either
[08:34] {Threei} let me put it this way mags
[08:34] {magoo} lol..my new nickname
[08:34] {Threei} this is not about IBM as such at this point,
[08:34] {magoo} 8i
[08:34] {Threei} lol
[08:35] {Threei} this is about whether market topped out or ready to conrtinue
[08:35] {Threei} if we topped out, bounces is not a prominent idea,
[08:35] {Threei} they'll be mt with hard selling
[08:35] {magoo} yup
[08:35] {Threei} no matter what kind of earnings is announced
[08:36] {Threei} so, insteasd of trying to find the play on these bellweathers
[08:36] {Threei} wich will be the most volatile and most importantly, they'll be first out of the gate to show the direction, so you don't have a leading indicator
[08:37] {Threei} I'd prefer to observe them for now
[08:37] {Threei} and get our trades on second tier stocks

[10:24] {Threei} Short Setup: INTC .15 break if stays under .20
[10:27] {dino} shaw stopped, broken
[10:28] {dino} semi's no respect for earnings
[10:28] {Threei} HIG, why did you feel a need to ruin setup before playing?
[10:29] {Threei} unless this time INTC runs into smackdown again, looks like it's a long side that will set up
[10:30] {Threei} no seriously... look at HIG chart
[10:30] {fernp} in
[10:30] {Threei} up to 10:15 everything was fine
[10:31] {Threei} and played out just as it should - except for that idiotic sharp dive

[10:32] {strider} what do you expect from intc, vad?
[10:33] {Threei} unless market resumes donward tgrend, should be good for .30 - .35...
[10:33] {Threei} maybe more but only if market really picks up
[10:36] {fernp} unfortunately, habitual behavior in HIG lately
[10:36] {fernp} now is pulling back
[10:37] {fernp} let's see
[10:37] {dino} all, pru want tues gap
[10:38] {Threei} so if this is how HIG trades now, then we should be able to get it around .20

[10:52] {dino} may have bottomed nemo
[10:53] {dino} would be an all dayer w/hard stop imo
[10:54] {dino} syna holds well
[10:54] {Threei} that was my impression to dino... and thing actually started picking up buying
[10:54] {Threei} then sold off again
[10:55] {dino} would rather see big drop, then hit it long
[10:55] {dino} say 24.80s
[10:57] {dino} rovi heads into support
[10:57] {strider} QQQQ tripple bottom

[10:59] {Threei} we had what, one working call for 20 cents, one for 10 and one stop for 6, and whole bunch of invalidated ones?

[11:00] {Threei} yeah, it touched on 1:1, but barely

[11:00] {Threei} so could go either way depending on a trader

[14:48] {nemo} who did it?
[14:48] {nemo} not worthy of how far I stuck out my chin, Vad...

[14:49] {nemo} true...

[14:55] {nemo} Anyway, if not connected to market, then does it just trade on it's own pattern?
[14:55] {nemo} Thus, don't look at the market for clues
[14:55] {dino} its the tree falling in woods thing
[14:56] {Threei} that's the problem,
[14:56] {Threei} it largely trades with no patterns today
[14:56] {Threei} sometimes something shapes up
[14:56] {Threei} but mostly it's random
[14:56] {nemo} yeah, except around that .80 level
[14:56] {Threei} yes,

[11:35] {dino} lol
[11:35] {Threei} ese's holding scewer with meat in one hand, grabs glass with vodka from dp with his other hand...
[11:35] {Threei} skewer
[11:36] {Threei} all the while holding the syringe with coffee under is elbow - for later, you know...
[11:36] {fernp} HIG long .81 w/stop below .70?
[11:36] {ese} not they get the picture........grits teeth with mouth wide open..........mean looking skowl on face
[11:36] {Threei} that's the setup I see fern
[11:36] {fernp} tks
[11:36] {nemo} ese...for some reason I can't think of you with a mean scowl
[11:37] {Threei} to polis the image ese: gnaws through stainless steel skewer while eating meat
[11:37] {nemo} oy..has he had his shots?
[11:37] {ese} perfect
[11:37] {Threei} try to take meat from him nemo... it's right up there with trying to take vodka from dp
[11:38] {ese} but it didn't scare patience though........that was the real scary thing
[11:39] {nemo} Rimm...damn
[11:41] {nemo} geez, those triangles continue to tighten
[11:48] {nemo} wag really strong today
[11:50] {nemo} just listening to Art Cashin...TrimTabs claims available cash among money managers down to 1%...so...who's left to buy?
[11:51] {Threei} who?
[11:51] {Threei} some outfits pop up every day out of nowhere, claiming some deep inner knowledge...
[11:51] {Threei} trimtabs this time
[11:51] {Threei} zeroknowledge last time
[11:52] {nemo} "zeroknowledge" good one...
[11:52] {nemo} although...Art Cashin is pretty seasoned...we're not talking some half-baked Bulgarian
[11:53] {Threei} whatever... I am willing to bet my right arm that anyone claiming he knows how much cash money managers have available is full of it
[11:54] {nemo} so...if you're wrong, can I cut it off :)
[11:54] {Threei} as if this information was in any way gathered
[11:54] {Threei} available in any form from somewhere
[11:54] {nemo} yes...it's a statement without knowing the methodology...also, why would money managers be truthful
[11:54] {nemo} So...can I cut it off?
[11:55] {Threei} you are sure welcome to try'
[11:55] {nemo} Gek or short sword should do the trick
[11:56] {nemo} on a trading note...HIG again..aig ascending wedge
[12:02] {nemo} ahhhh....wag buyback...that's the strength
[12:04] {Threei} fern, HIG doesn't go with market... let's scratch it, IMO
[12:04] {fernp} ok
[12:04] {Threei} there... b/e
[12:04] {magoo} HIG does this...becomes a non mover
[12:04] {Threei} sometimes, yes
[12:05] {fernp} +.02
[12:05] {Threei} don't spend it all at once
[12:12] {Threei} OK, I give up... HIG is beyond sensible today, lol
[12:12] {Threei} it almost tagged stop three times while market was consolidating or upticking,
[12:12] {fernp} yeah, reached 1:1
[12:12] {Threei} and went up when market dropped?
[12:14] {dino} hog
[12:16] {Threei} market is pretty much sits it out today
[12:16] {Threei} and it doesn't bode well for the bears
[12:16] {Threei} of course we still have significant earnings ahead
[12:17] {Threei} but overall, there is this feeling of rally continuation in the air
[12:18] {fernp} SPY is breaking hod
[12:19] {bkhmd} yawnnnnnnnn
[12:19] {dino} ogxi
[12:20] {Threei} no news

[12:21] {bkhmd} very
[12:24] {fernp} yes, I looked at it ealier. I didn't like what i saw. Don't want to look again. lol
[12:24] {Threei} better don't
[12:25] {Threei} it's likely to cause uncontrolled rage resulting in destrying neighborhood
[12:26] {fernp} and HIG 2:1
[12:29] {bkhmd} GLD gonna break down?
[12:30] {dino} out thd .50, +.43
[12:31] {Threei} .65 is a valid trigger for GLD if stays below .75
[12:31] {bkhmd} ty
[12:37] {Threei} US) DoD Undersecretary: Bush Administration doctrine of pre-emptive strikes is under review and may be dropped

[13:25] {Threei} - as of early this afternoon, trading desk sources say that indexers will need to buy 4.6M shares of FSLR.
[13:25] {Threei} - as previously announced, NWSA will replace WYE in the S&P 100 index.

[14:14] {Threei} no sligtest idea
[14:14] {bkhmd} or break down?
[14:14] {Threei} thing has no rhyme or reason today

[14:24] {dino} hog misses big, sales way down, guides lousy and goes up big
[14:24] {nemo} sign of a strong market...
[14:24] {dino} vs. xlnx and intc who both beat and guide higher
[14:25] {nemo} bi-polar market?
[14:25] {dino} obama market, popularity contest, not substance
[14:26] {magoo} vs GS with blowout numbers
[14:26] {nemo} but didn't beat the whisper numbers
[14:26] {magoo} freakin WHISPER
[14:26] {magoo} stupid..manipulated mkt
[14:26] {nemo} Everybody's been playing UPOD so those become important.
[14:27] {nemo} Here's the skinny on google: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aIe6wu7IYK1c
[14:29] {dino} intc close enough for fill
[14:30] {nemo} Alright..gotta' go sell politically incorrect merchandise...what are you going to volunteer me for this week while I'm gone?
[14:30] {dino} rumor mill

[14:31] {dino} aixg hl l .32
[14:31] {dino} stop lod
[14:32] {nemo} c u L8tr
[14:33] {dino} cya nemo
[14:33] {Threei} take care nemo
[14:33] {fernp} bye nemo
[14:34] {Threei} ok, let's decide
[14:34] {Threei} market rallies into close or dies
[14:34] {Threei} 'cause if rallies, HIG is an easy mover to 28.15 at least
[14:34] {dino} rallies
[14:34] {Threei} my feeling too
[14:35] {dino} thats what the caesars' coin says
[14:35] {Threei} what if you throw 8-ball at magoo?
[14:35] {magoo} he did that and its broken
[14:36] {Threei} great... now we have no tool for reading the markets :(
[14:36] {Threei} oh wait... I have old dart board
[14:36] {dino} no more magic 8 ball
06[14:38] * KSystems wonders if his face is still sticked to the bull's eye
[14:39] {Threei} I alternate that with nemo's
[14:39] {KSystems} thank you
[14:39] {Threei} in pretence of fairness
[14:39] {fernp} ALL daily chart is promising
[14:40] {Threei} eyeing 32 break?
[14:40] {fernp} y
[14:40] {fernp} HIG sector
[14:40] {Threei} HOG, this is truly remarkable
[14:41] {Threei} if this is how stock reacts on earnings miss, I wonder what it would do should they announce bankruptsy
[14:41] {Threei} would be at 100 already I guess?
[14:43] {Threei} omg
[14:43] {Threei} look CNN
[14:44] {magoo} NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO
[14:45] {magoo} read RIMM vader?
[14:45] {Threei} not really
[14:46] {Threei} uncharacteristically narrow
[14:46] {dino} hog, had/have short order at 28.23, look how close it came
[14:48] {magoo} fee oclock move...fee oclock move comin
[14:50] {magoo} vad..r or r??
[14:50] {Threei} 14:34] {dino} rallies
[14:50] {Threei} [14:34] {Threei} my feeling too
[14:50] {fernp} 28 break Vad?
[14:50] {Threei} chart wise yes,
[14:51] {bkhmd} HIG?
[14:51] {fernp} y
[14:51] {Threei} but I like aggressive entries on it more
[14:52] {Threei} any entry of .70 would be a winner,
[14:52] {Threei} while .80 was... well, you were there
[14:52] {Threei} nerve-wrecking is the word
[14:52] {Threei} mixed with gut-wrenching
[14:53] {Threei} my strong feeling is, 28.15 at least
[14:53] {magoo} in
[14:53] {magoo} .98
[14:53] {dino} esi sm l .00
[14:54] {fernp} in too
[14:54] {Threei} oh wow... I have out-agreesed magoo
[14:54] {dino} hod mkts
[14:54] {bkhmd} too late?
[14:54] {Threei} I wouldn't chase
[14:54] {Threei} see if you get pullback
[14:54] {Threei} if not - just let it go
[14:54] {bkhmd} entry was break of 28?
[14:55] {fernp} in ALL too from .96
[14:55] {Threei} 14:50] {fernp} 28 break Vad?
[14:55] {Threei} [14:50] {Threei} chart wise yes,
[14:55] {Threei} [14:51] {bkhmd} HIG?
[14:55] {Threei} [14:51] {fernp} y
[14:55] {Threei} [14:51] {Threei} but I like aggressive entries on it more
[14:56] {Threei} good entry on ALL
[14:58] {fernp} HIG stop is .85?
[14:59] {Threei} yeah... but you do know that if it gets there and stops us out, it will bounce back up right away, right? :)
[14:59] {fernp} it is not going to happen
[15:00] {fernp} ALL 1:1
[15:00] {Threei} {HIG} hahahaha
[15:00] {fernp} no, 1.5:1
[15:00] {fernp} lol
[15:00] {Threei} very nice one, ALL
[15:00] {fernp} ty
[15:01] {dino} gj
[15:05] {Threei} .me kicks HIG in the rear
06[15:05] * Threei kicks HIG in the rear
[15:07] {fernp} i am half out here
[15:15] {Threei} (US) President Obama: In favor of finding "environmentally friendly" ways of tapping US oil and gas reserves (related USO UNG CARBX )
[15:17] {dino} it's called drilling
[15:20] {dino} out xlnx .70, +.20 all day
[15:20] {fernp} gj
[15:21] {dino} ty
[15:25] {Threei} fern... your ALL sell was pretty much top tick
[15:25] {Threei} and HIG topped out at exactly .15
[15:25] {fernp} only sold 50%
[15:26] {fernp} and I have to admit that I don't know how to read this market
[15:27] {Threei} no one does
[15:27] {Threei} not many admit though
[15:27] {Threei} rally started in March,
[15:27] {Threei} pandits call for reversal since April,
[15:27] {fernp} we need a pullback
[15:28] {Threei} and this howling becomes louder every month
[15:28] {Threei} reaching crescendo in Aug-Sept,
[15:28] {Threei} yet here is Oct and we climb even higher.
[15:28] {fernp} yeah exactly
[15:28] {Threei} So tell me... do they know how to read this market?? :)
[15:28] {fernp} nope
[15:28] {Threei} sure when it finally reverses they all will claim being right
[15:29] {Threei} yet try to follow them and you'll get killed
[15:29] {dino} slt
[15:29] {bkhmd} thats why im here
[15:39] {Threei} too bad this spike was totally out of notwhere on HIG
[15:40] {bkhmd} r u still in Vad?
[15:40] {fernp} too bad?
[15:40] {Threei} no
[15:40] {fernp} ah!!
[15:40] {magoo} look fslr vad..with buys right?
[15:40] {Threei} I mean too bad it didn't give any indication for new entry
[15:40] {fernp} out here
[15:40] {Threei} mags, this things NEVER works
[15:40] {fernp} ty very much
[15:40] {Threei} I saw it many times
[15:41] {Threei} welcome fern
[15:41] {fernp} I go to the bed
[15:41] {magoo} agree lately
[15:41] {magoo} was in aug
[15:41] {Threei} this "rebalancing" thing I mean
[15:41] {fernp} good evening everybody. see u all tomorrow
[15:41] {bkhmd} tc fern
[15:41] {Threei} managers haave to buy, let's all pile up before they do - yeah right
[15:41] {Threei} take care fern
[15:43] {dino} cya fern
[15:46] {Threei} uneventul ending
[15:46] {Threei} still up 10-15 points
[15:46] {Threei} and 10K is holding
[15:46] {gnslng} for learning purposes is that a c & h from 1400 to 1450 on HIG on 1 min ?
[15:47] {Threei} yes
[15:47] {gnslng} ty
[15:47] {Threei} bears must be getting really frustrated
[15:47] {Threei} well, those that are still alive
[15:47] {Threei} which should not be too many
[15:52] {bkhmd} hig trying to break
[15:53] {bkhmd} last minute jail break
[15:53] {dino} aixcg out .60 +.27
[15:53] {Threei} you'd think market should get very exciting after 10K break, yet it was fairly boring
[15:54] {bkhmd} I dont know much but my thoughts would have been caution
[15:54] {Threei} with GOOG and IBM coming, no wonder actually
[15:55] {dino} fgi
[15:55] {bkhmd} can GOOG beat?
[15:55] {Threei} why not
[15:55] {dino} too fast
[15:55] {bkhmd} Vad the vol spike on HIG last minute would usually mean a top and look for pull pack?
[15:56] {Threei} more often than not, yes
[15:56] {bkhmd} ty
[15:56] {Threei} GOOG sold off pretty good today
[15:56] {bkhmd} fear or maybe leaks
[15:56] {bkhmd} ?
[15:57] {Threei} your guess is as good as anyone else's
[15:58] {dino} out zn ave +.08
[15:58] {bkhmd} hmmm Hig didnt do what i would have thought Pull back to .16 and test support
[15:59] {Threei} okay guys, somewhat listless day
[15:59] {bkhmd} thanks for the lesson VAD have a good night
[16:00] {Threei} have a good evening, see you all tomorrow
[16:01] {Threei} GOOG, sheesh

Oct 14 2009

Freeport, Bahamas conference - January 2010
Vad's sessions - 2 days, including live trading

Careful restrained trading after losing day and starting out with fresh mind worked miracles. 4 calls, 4 wins one of which was HIG 60 cents profit - and room members found quite a few winning trades on their own and shared generously. One losing day difference maketh not.

Session Time: Wed Oct 14 00:00:00 2009

[10:17] {ese} bizzare........young guns i uess
[10:17] {ese} guess
[10:17] {Threei} or senility setting in
[10:18] {nemo} wag short?

[10:20] {Threei} good job
[10:20] {bkhmd} awsome Stride
[10:20] {strider} FWIW, I'm papertrading my own calls today....as penance for my foolishness yesterday.
[10:21] {ese} stalking fslr
[10:21] {Threei} Japan Trade Min: may need to consider carbon tax
[10:21] {Threei} hmmm... idicoy is not contained to any side of the ocean
[10:21] {Threei} idiocy
[10:22] {dino} meanwhile hottest temp. on record occurred in 1998
[10:22] {Threei} yup, and last 10 years we have steady dropping temps
[10:22] {fernp} Vad, I'm long LUV from .71 my 1:1 is here, do you see more uptrend if breaks .76?
[10:23] {Threei} chart is a beauty fern
[10:23] {Threei} question is whether market helps
[10:24] {Threei} if you got enough shares for partial, I'd do that
[10:24] {Threei} and with stop under .70, what's your risk
[10:24] {fernp} im gonna sell 500 here
[10:24] {Threei} daily is too good to let this chance go
[10:24] {nemo} .70 is R1 off the pivot fern
[10:24] {Threei} and if market says not this time, so be it
[10:24] {fernp} thanks
[10:25] {nemo} Mmmmhhhh....Yul Brynner..10 Commandments
[10:25] {strider} ese, FSLR scary
[10:26] {ese} definately strider.....
[10:26] {Threei} but ese is also known as Intrepid

[10:27] {nemo} thought that was magoo
[10:27] {fernp} WAG short wasn't bad idea
[10:27] {nemo} my second broken clock moment
[10:27] {fernp} second?
[10:27] {nemo} oh...I saw JNPR at .95
[10:28] {nemo} sorry
06[10:28] * magoo slaps nemo around a bit with a large trout
[10:28] {fernp} true
[10:28] {nemo} mags...you know how psychologically damaging that is...
[10:28] {ese} not show up? not showing up(from last post)
[10:29] {bkhmd} stt double bottom?
[10:29] {Threei} totally market dependent
[10:30] {Threei} and rather looks like breakdown to me
[10:30] {bkhmd} ty
[10:31] {Threei} I'd put it this way:
[10:31] {Threei} worth a short if market goes down, not worth long if market goes up
[10:32] {bkhmd} ty
[10:32] {bkhmd} break of .39?
[10:32] {strider} drys similar
[10:32] {Threei} break of .40
[10:32] {Threei} and be nimble size wise, it's a thin stock
[10:32] {fernp} out LUV 2:1
[10:33] {fernp} ty Vad
[10:33] {Threei} good job fern
[10:33] {bkhmd} gj
[10:33] {fernp} ty
[10:33] {ese} good one fern
[10:33] {fernp} :)
[10:33] {Threei} fern is back with vengeance
[10:34] {fernp} no no. I am calm
[10:35] {strider} leap a leaping
[10:36] {bkhmd} nice surge in market
[10:36] {nemo} $ dropping
[10:38] {strider} pwrd still getting it
[10:38] {nemo} aig didn't go with the surge
[10:39] {ese} l fslr .31
[10:40] {fernp} you still in INTC, Vad?
[10:40] {Threei} half
[10:40] {Threei} trailed to under 21
[10:40] {fernp} original entry point here
[10:40] {Threei} want to see if it wants to surprize everyone
[10:41] {fernp} go with you again (half lot)
[10:42] {strider} ese, your stop below 147?
[10:43] {strider} wow

[10:45] {strider} k
[10:45] {bkhmd} Ese SM means Small lot?
[10:45] {ese} yes
[10:45] {bkhmd} thanks bro
[10:46] {Threei} CSIQ Analysts at Credit Suisse comment in name; Remain cautious in name as higher shipment levels not seen boosting earnings levels (timing uncertain) (17.19, -0.35, -2.00%)
[10:46] {ese} your welcome.......got that definition from dino though
[10:46] {Threei} CSIQ is red in the sea of green
[10:47] {Threei} a bit too thin
[10:47] {Threei} but overall, when market gives up it's a good short candidate
[10:47] {dino} raised guidance too
[10:47] {Threei} perfect
[10:47] {nemo} JNJ Vad?
[10:47] {dino} issuing 6 m shares
[10:47] {dino} csiq
[10:48] {Threei} no idea emo
[10:48] {bkhmd} Trades mostly 100 share lots am i reading that correctly?
[10:50] {Threei} I am not sure what the question is bkhmd...
[10:51] {Threei} do you really need us to confirm you know how 1 is different form 2?
[10:51] {nemo} whoa...
[10:51] {Threei} I know nemo does
[10:51] {nemo} remember...he's new
[10:51] {bkhmd} no thanks Vad
[10:51] {Threei} well... consider it's a rite of passage
[10:52] {Threei} oh good... I don't believe I could handle two nemos
[10:54] {strider} driv?
[10:54] {Threei} chart is short on .40 break...
[10:54] {Threei} but heck, it's beaten down so badly
[10:54] {Threei} not sure
[10:54] {strider} you soft-hearted guy
[10:54] {Threei} lol... yeah, that's me
[10:55] {Threei} what I don't like about DRIV here the most
[10:55] {Threei} see how thin it became vs all the hyperactive trading over last couple days?
[10:55] {ese} l fslr .19
[10:56] {Threei} small sizes, no smooth constant stream of prints
[10:56] {Threei} this may result in such sudden move, it's simply a too dangerous stock in uncertain market
[10:56] {bkhmd} thats what i was asking in my previous question Vad lot sizes I had my time and sales set up wrong
[10:57] {ese} out fslr .51 +.32
[10:57] {fernp} really good job, ese
[10:57] {Threei} you can regulate printas to show 100 or 1 etc?
[10:58] {ese} tks
[10:58] {Threei} must be specific to your broker then
[10:58] {bkhmd} yea I figured it out had it set up wrong
[10:58] {Threei} no such option with Laser
[10:58] {Threei} which makes it simpler,less room for wrrors :)
[10:58] {Threei} errors too
[10:58] {strider} you got to watch out for those wrrors..
[10:59] {Threei} I tried
[10:59] {Threei} but there are just too many of them
[10:59] {Threei} so I gave up
[10:59] {ese} fslr....why you little........
[11:00] {bkhmd} lol
[11:01] {Threei} (RU) Putin: premature to adopt sanctions against Iran
[11:01] {nemo} it's only been what....7 8 years
[11:02] {Threei} No point trying to scare Iran with sanction talks
[11:02] {nemo} hurt their feelings
[11:02] {Threei} what doesa he suggest then?
[11:02] {nemo} hah...frickin JNJ
[11:03] {Threei} Long Setup: AIG .60 break if stays above .50
[11:03] {Threei} only for adventurous souls
[11:04] {dino} cetv last try, .00 sm l
[11:05] {Threei} fern... INTC is above 1:1 if you wanted to scalp it
[11:05] {Threei} I'll hold that half
[11:06] {fernp} lol, I was writing this... my 1:1 in INTC is here again, Vad. Can I sell or must stay with you?
[11:06] {Threei} AIG invalidated
[11:06] {Threei} ummm... no such thing as must :)
[11:07] {fernp} I am out TY
[11:07] {Threei} my game plan is:
[11:07] {Threei} risk is minimal for this swecond half at this point, and profit secured by selling first half makes it non-existent,
[11:08] {Threei} and everyone believes market is done going up,
[11:08] {Threei} and INTC is blow-off top here
[11:08] {Threei} so I want to see if market ad INTC fool that "everyone", with no risk to myself
[11:09] {fernp} good point
[11:09] {larisa} risk in minimal, what about reward :)
[11:09] {Threei} reward... well, if INTC goes for surprize run, I'd say 21.40 minimum
[11:15] {fernp} AIG big drop
[11:15] {bkhmd} with huge volume
[11:16] {Threei} no news
[11:16] {Threei} unless AIG insured AutoVaz
[11:17] {Threei} AvtoVAZ Head of State Audit Chamber: Avtovaz on brink of bankruptcy
[11:17] {Threei} **Note: On 10/05, Russian PM Putin said that govt will not let Avtovaz fail (RIA Novosti). Back on 10/3, Putin threatened to reduce Renault's 25% stake in Avtovaz if the French company fails to help fund Russia's biggest carmaker.
[11:19] {Threei} so, out of 3 ways we defined before opening, market picked 4th
[11:19] {Threei} dropped a bit,
[11:19] {Threei} stayed solidly green,
[11:20] {Threei} and remains locked in narrow range
[11:20] {Threei} so it reconciled all three
[11:20] {nemo} speaking of locked range...jnpr
[11:21] {Threei} this is one potentially explosive chart
[11:21] {nemo} which one?
[11:21] {Threei} your JNPR
[11:21] {nemo} oh...
[11:22] {nemo} I'm going to get a cup of coffee, so get ready
[11:22] {patience} .
[11:28] {Threei} hmm
[11:29] {Threei} market moved up, any stock followed??
[11:29] {nemo} hymn
[11:29] {nemo} not really
[11:29] {Threei} none of what I was watching
[11:29] {nemo} iyf did
[11:29] {larisa} CAT only :)
[11:29] {Threei} that one I didn't watch
[11:29] {nemo} looks like a short now
[11:30] {Threei} (RU) Russian Fin Ministry decides not to give Iceland $500M loan
[11:30] {bkhmd} abt news must have been huge
[11:30] {Threei} what for, they are in first three best places to live
[11:31] {Threei} ABT good earnings, good gyuidance
[11:35] {strider} Famous quote of the day: Discomfort and profit go hand in hand.
[11:35] {strider} Who said that?
[11:35] {nemo} Livermore
[11:35] {larisa} like losses give you comfort :)
[11:36] {strider} adjusts himself on his seat of nails
06[11:37] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large book of Techniques of Tape Reading
[11:37] {strider} Actually, Vad said it also. I think Livermore must have got it from him.
[11:37] {strider} :)
[11:37] {nemo} Sorry...I always get you two legends mixed up
[11:38] {larisa} lol

[11:56] {strider} it got better though
[11:57] {Threei} reminder to myself: wait for Larisa to mention HIG and buy all you can
[12:00] {Threei} HIG is holding very well, comparing to AIG
[12:00] {Threei} and JNPR is still there
[12:01] {nemo} had that obligatory shakeout to .30
[12:02] {strider} lvs short @ .84?
[12:02] {nemo} lvs
[12:02] {Threei} not sure
[12:02] {Threei} can turn into double bottom easy
[12:03] {nemo} yeah, looks like crescendo/capitualtion buying on that last downspike
[12:03] {strider} ??
[12:03] {strider} introducing new terms here: crescendo

[12:23] {Threei} Long Setup: HIG .50
[12:23] {Threei} if stays above .40,

[12:28] {Threei} I bet it was MLCO
[12:28] {Threei} fern, mags, lol
[12:28] {nemo} no..tried direct buy...then arca...then nyse...then cancelled
[12:28] {Threei} shrug... there is a reason why I recomnmend NASDAQ route for listeds
[12:29] {fernp} are ther problems with routes?

Oct 13 2009

Freeport, Bahamas conference - January 2010
Vad's sessions - 2 days, including live trading


Our first losing day in about two weeks. Just one of those when nothing works, no matter what you try - breakouts, breakdowns, pullbacks, everything shakes you out before going. One of the ways the market lures you into abandoning your discipline.

Session Time: Tue Oct 13 00:00:00 2009

[08:51] {magoo} i dont..but i follow all and dont want to take a trade and not rralize news out
[08:52] {Threei} none of them shows any unusual price action
[08:52] {magoo} sigh
[08:52] {magoo} never mind
[08:52] {Threei} and those are companies with constant barrage of some little news
[08:53] {Threei} want to try and read through them to see if there is anything important?
[08:53] {Threei} look:
[08:53] {Threei} Apple Inc Business Week examines why the company has a higher market cap than Google
[08:53] {Threei} - Apple makes money in all of its businesses, while Google incurs losses in most of its units, with the exception of its search business.
[08:53] {Threei} - Apple's profits may be more insulated from competition than Google's.
[08:53] {Threei} - Apple has room to grow its consumer business.
[08:53] {Threei} this kind of bs takes pages on each of these flagships
[08:54] {Threei} approach them differently: if there is some unusual price action, look for news
[08:54] {Threei} if there is none, no even reason for look

[09:34] {Threei} watching JNPR for pullback
[09:35] {Threei} Euro vs US Dollar Insight: Dealers debate the USD and reserve currency status
[09:35] {Threei} The USD continues to hit 12 month lows against numerous European and commodity-related currencies and some dealers are debating whether central bank currency intervention would ensue.
[09:35] {Threei} The dollar bears suggest that the Obama Administration spending to remove the U.S. from its recession is undermining the dollar, triggering record commodities rallies as investors scour the globe for hard assets. The dollar bears suggest that the US has no interest in having the USD be a reserve currency as that would require fiscal discipline. The strong dollar policy mentioned by officials is broadly viewed as "a joke" at this point in time and is just rhetoric.. They do not mean it and everyone realizes it now.
[09:37] {Threei} WFC

[10:24] {nemo} $ continues to strengthen
[10:25] {strider} I think the market is going down today
[10:25] {nemo} as long as the $ keeps getting stronger
[10:26] {ese} l ener .84
[10:34] {dino} don't think
[10:36] {ese} it felt like I had found the reversal point for ener.......but maybe not...stop in at .70
[10:37] {fernp} ERTS interesting
[10:37] {nemo} $ losing steam
[10:39] {Threei} what do you use to watch it?

[10:40] {ese} it's an index
[10:40] {nemo} etf...but yeah, basically
[10:41] {ese} what are it's strenghts and weaknesses
[10:42] {ese} just looking at it now
[10:42] {nemo} I don't trade it, just use it as an indicator...plot it against the S&P 500 over the last year
[10:43] {ese} as an indicator ...what are you looking for
[10:43] {nemo} it's rise and fall...this rally in the S&P has mirrored (almost anyway) the decline in the $
[10:44] {nemo} Dollar weakness has been a boon to equities. Strength just the opposite
[10:44] {ese} ok......you using it to go long and short stocks ?
[10:45] {nemo} last week we had the first time in a long time where I saw the $ and the market up on the same day, so there might be a transition underway
[10:46] {ese} ok
[10:47] {dino} the strength in $ last fall-march give or take was a flight to safety. altho weaker $ to a point is very good for stocks, especially exporters
[10:47] {Threei} with UUP intraday range I can't see how it can be useful as indicator for short term trades
[10:48] {ese} no ...i wouldn't think so.....swing or longer term
[10:49] {ese} ener should reach 12 here
[10:49] {ese} spoke too soon
[10:53] {ese} what kind of flippin quote is that .8956352 sheesh
[10:54] {Threei} lol

[10:54] {ese} let me see.....that means i'm up duuuuhh
[10:57] {nemo} dcc ese?
[10:59] {ese} come on ener.....you know you've found the bottom
[11:00] {ese} ok....i'm shutting up now.....everytime i say something it goes dn
[11:04] {Threei} we need some shakeout in the market
[11:04] {Threei} so it would spring back to life
[11:04] {Threei} I don't want top push anything in this inactivity
[11:06] {dino} push magoo then
[11:07] {Threei} hmm

[11:23] {nemo} Actually, it seems many of the stocks are hitting technical resistances (ma, pivot relationships) and moving off them today
[11:23] {nemo} well...the one's I'm looking at anyway
[11:25] {dino} pwrd interesting
[11:25] {dino} and i like stewc around 24.25

[11:33] {fernp} PALM 17.05 break, Vad?
[11:33] {Threei} Short Setup: DRIV .90 break
[11:33] {Threei} if stays below 26
[11:34] {dino} dine, sfly, tlvt
[11:35] {Threei} can't tell on PALM
[11:35] {fernp} i'll pass
[11:36] {ese} i'm back
[11:37] {Threei} DRIV if works should be good for more than scalp
[11:38] {dino} sm l pwrd .00
[11:38] {dino} pulp, so careful
[11:38] {strider} are you partialing at .80, vad?
[11:39] {Threei} depends on action
[11:39] {Threei} if dives sharply, will probably give a first partial lower
[11:39] {Threei} around mid 70s
[11:39] {Threei} market strengthened
[11:41] {Threei} sigh
[11:41] {magoo} yea..mkt keeps ruining setups
[11:41] {fernp} out
[11:41] {Threei} both ways
[11:41] {magoo} yea
[11:41] {strider} Well I've lost my limit for the day
[11:41] {Threei} look at this dive
[11:41] {dptl} have a good rest of the day all
[11:42] {dino} u2 dp
[11:42] {dino} amn waking
[11:42] {dino} thin
[11:44] {magoo} HIG trying to bounce
[11:46] {strider} sxci
[11:47] {fernp} ENER 12 break is valid setup, Vad?
[11:48] {Threei} I don't know what to say fern... it is but none of valid setups worked so far\
[11:48] {fernp} thanks
[11:48] {Threei} this is simply one of those brutal "shake out everyone" days
[11:49] {Threei} we have enough time yet, but so far it shapes up as our first losing day in two weeks
[11:49] {Threei} now, my approach to this is:
[11:50] {Threei} odds are odds, we are bound to have losing days sooner or later,
[11:50] {Threei} and main task is to keep losses well trimmed down
[11:50] {Threei} so I don't want to continue doing what hasn't worked so far and accumulate losses out of stubberness
[11:51] {Threei} instead I want to see if can get one of setups based on someone getting shaken out
[11:51] {Threei} like sharp pullback after the breakout
[11:51] {dino} oh, i thought you were going to the pub
[11:51] {nemo} $ at low for the day
[11:51] {Threei} that's a good idea too
[11:51] {magoo} in :)
[11:51] {Threei} lol
[11:52] {dino} some times it is less expensive than pushong
[11:52] {dino} pushing
[11:52] {Threei} and way more pleasanrt
[11:53] {dino} so, i shall do that next week
[11:54] {Threei} DRIV, false break, sharp pullback now
[11:54] {Threei} let's sdee if there is a bounce in it to scalp
[11:55] {Threei} want another vertical bar down
[11:56] {nemo} .80 is pivot
[11:57] {Threei} feels like going under .80 to me
[11:57] {nemo} just info
[11:58] {dino} i ran it from .50-.85 earlier, .40 held then
[11:59] {Threei} in
[11:59] {Threei} .73
[11:59] {fernp} stop?
[11:59] {magoo} .78
[12:00] {Threei} .65
[12:01] {magoo} taking too long...no good sign
[12:03] {Threei} tighten stop to under .70 then and hunt for reentry if stopped
[12:05] {Threei} ok DRIV, it's time
[12:05] {Threei} sharp jump is just what you need now
[12:06] {Threei} yeah right
[12:06] {fernp} O U T
[12:06] {Threei} if even so deep pullbacks don't work...
[12:07] {magoo} ironically..original short was the trade
[12:07] {Threei} yup
[12:07] {Threei} but it got shaken out too
[12:09] {Threei} and it's now where I intended to cover it when said it was more than scalp
[12:09] {Threei} frikin 40 cents target
[12:09] {fernp} and ENER 12 break is not working...

[12:22] {dino} germany cutting solar subsidies moving more towards nuclear
[12:24] {Threei} is it something fresh?
[12:24] {Threei} I dopn't see any headlines
[12:28] {patience} The German CDU energy spokesman says that Germany--the world's largest solar market--will be further cutting solar subsidies in 2010. They are looking more favorably at nuclear power to meet demand and cut greenhouse gasses
[12:28] {patience} realmoney blurb just posted
[12:29] {dino} inin
[12:29] {Threei} so, there is a hope for common sense in the world?
[12:29] {nemo} stop being silly
[12:29] {Threei} yeah... what was I thinking
[12:29] {dino} no vad, cal. just increased the subsidies
[12:32] {dino} stec
[12:32] {Threei} oh well... it was a nice thought for all of 6 seconds
[12:34] {nemo} Should never have looked away...that flatline
[12:37] {nemo} where you waiting Dino
[12:38] {dino} .90
[12:39] {dino} too low perhaps
[12:50] {dino} sm l .25
[12:51] {Threei} Citigroup analyst comments on Solar sector; says more pressure is growing on German subsidies (timing uncertain)
[12:51] {Threei} - notes "solar stocks are down across the board today on news overnight from Germany that the recently elected administration is seeking to reduce feed-in-tariffs (FIT) for solar power generation by as early as 2010. While discussions are ongoing and no specifics were provided, we note this is a decidedly more negative stance versus original expectations of what was largely believed to be an impending cut to take effect in 2011 but broadly in-line with our view that Germany is at best a temporary positive."
[12:57] {larisa} not good news for ENER actually, Germany market is 3d after Spain and France.

[13:48] {Threei} - Chinese Yuan can be reserve only once it is convertible; emerging economies should gradually shift toward the Euro for trade.
[13:48] {Threei} - Global monetary system can evolve "progressively".
[13:48] {Threei} - Euro is 'obvious candidate' for reserve currency.

[14:32] {Threei} interesting comment from Fed's Kohn
[14:32] {Threei} - Using monetary policy to tackle asset bubbles is still in question; strong preference is to improve supervision and regulation of markets
[14:32] {Threei} so, the very idea of having central bank deliberatelky setting the prime rate is in question?
[14:33] {Threei} I'll say it's time
[14:33] {Threei} actually time to abandon this idea as in 1913

Oct 12 2009

Freeport, Bahamas conference - January 2010
Vad's sessions - 2 days, including live trading

The day started bleakly - slow, with two 10 cents stops on AKAM and WFC, and looked like one of those "why did I bother to wake up today." VVUS 23 cents win made it a bit better - and then ENER for 20 cents and most of all DRIV for full dollar run made the day nice and bright


Session Time: Mon Oct 12 00:00:00 2009

[06:08] {KSystems} morning
[07:59] {strider} .
[08:18] {Threei} 07:00 DRIV Informed by Symantec that it will not extend E-Commerce contract beyond June 30, 2010 expiration

[08:30] {KSystems} how to end your sentences without them?
[08:30] {KSystems} they'd look like those of Tolkien
[08:30] {Threei} and you may have a chance to exchange them for airmiles
[08:31] {KSystems} or cell phone minutes
[08:31] {KSystems} do they do that where you live?
[08:32] {KSystems} here in germany you can exchange almost anything for cell phone minutes
[08:32] {strider} not that I'm aware f.
[08:32] {strider} of
[08:32] {KSystems} including your cell phone bills

[08:44] {Threei} mags, nemo
[08:45] {nemo} I'm in Maryland at the moment...just thought I'd drop in and say hello...I know your day wouldn't be the same without me....

[08:49] {Threei} DRIV Lazard Cuts DRIV to Hold from Buy (timing uncertain)

[08:58] {_bkhmd} love at at 40 love it more at 20? lol
[08:59] {Threei} that would be investor trying to average down
[08:59] {Threei} traders view these things differently
[08:59] {Threei} ok mags... aaaalmost there
[08:59] {Threei} get ready
[08:59] {_bkhmd} Like ESOL

[14:09] {Threei} (US) California Gov Schwarzenegger has reportedly signed a law that will create a feed-in-tariff for small solar power generators
[14:09] {Threei} - The measure seeks to require California utilities to buy power from solar-panel generators of 1.5-3.0 megawatts in size, at set rates above what utilities would pay for wholesale power from conventional sources.
[14:10] {dino} just what californians need, higher electric bills in top of other issues
[14:10] {Threei} yeah
[14:10] {ese} haven't heard hide nor hair of magoo today.......
[14:11] {Threei} sad thing is, we in BC have a govt that loves to mimic Arnold

[14:24] {Threei} just very thin trading

[11:46] {Threei} market's reactions on earnings was always based on comparison to estimates
[11:46] {Threei} which is open to a ,lot of questions
[11:46] {dino} and estimates are basically opinions
[11:46] {dino} so we've come full circle again on the opinion statement
[11:46] {Threei} I mean, if analysts say .02 per share and company comes up with .04,
[11:47] {nemo} my point...going forward what are their expectations...I expected them to deliver this 14
[11:47] {nemo} 1/4
[11:47] {Threei} how do we deciede whether to buy company or to sell analysts?
[11:47] {nemo} shoot analysts
[11:47] {Threei} but whatever... those are the rules game is played under,
[11:48] {Threei} so as traders, what are we to do but learn to rules and exploit them
[11:48] {Threei} to = the
[11:49] {nemo} ok. market taking a breather

Oct 07 2009

Freeport, Bahamas conference - January 2010
Vad's sessions - 2 days, including live trading

Strong day with 9 calls and 8 wins. Variety was good also, with longs and shorts, scalps and bigger trades, and even two IPOs (BSBR and VRSK). The rest was more of garden variety: WFC, BAC, GLD...

[09:54] {larisa} sometimes
[09:54] {Threei} that's novelty concept :)
[09:54] {ese} was a double bottom on 1min chart vad bounce of .07 and .08
[09:54] {Threei} I see that ese, sure,
[09:54] {Threei} what I mean is:
[09:55] {Threei} you get clean double bottom setting up,
[09:55] {Threei} market helps,
[09:55] {Threei} BAC lags just a tad,
[09:55] {Threei} perfect situation for aggressive entry
[09:55] {Threei} instead of waiting for confirmation of double bottom
[09:55] {ese} yes i getcha
[09:55] {Threei} it;s not a big mover these says,

[09:57] {ese} as i look at that.....entry at .12 would have been better.... on that 1min chart after the double bottom
[09:57] {nemo} then it'll need a law firm
[09:57] {Threei} to put it right, ese: .15 break is not a mistake per se, it's a valid strategy,
[09:58] {Threei} it's just a choice between two strategies here,
[09:58] {Threei} and IMO{ aggressive entry was better choice in this particular situation
[09:59] {Threei} WFC - that was rude

[15:14] {nemo} ask mags
[15:14] {Threei} that;s what we need to decide to find a play or two for the close
[15:14] {Threei} lol
[15:14] {Threei} mags... THE QUESTION

[15:26] {nemo} nice volume increase on this last leg up in fcx
[15:29] {Threei} OK...
[15:30] {Threei} my candidate for this push is WFC
[15:30] {Threei} went over about 25 stocks to see what follows the best right now,
[15:30] {Threei} and this one seems to be the cleanest
[15:31] {Threei} .10 is obvious resistance to break
[15:31] {Threei} ideally we get little pullback now
[15:31] {Threei} then break
[15:31] {magoo} more than a scalp?
[15:32] {nemo} time
[15:32] {Threei} hard to tell for now, depends on how strong market push is going to be
[15:33] {Threei} my favorite scenario here would be pullback closer to 29 wirth entry there
[15:33] {Threei} but if no more pullbacks, then standrad setup
[15:33] {Threei} Long Setup: WFC 29.10 break if stays above 29
[15:34] {dino} panl spike
[15:34] {Threei} PANL TIcks higher on positive mention on CNBC (12.41, +0.59, 4.99%)

[10:47] {ese} tks
[10:47] {Threei} shapes up as a good setup if formsclose enough consolidation
[10:48] {ese} or would this be better as pullback entry
[10:49] {ese} .30 to .35 area
[10:49] {ese} too late
[10:49] {Threei} market retreats a bit
[10:49] {Threei} RIMM is very sensitive to the market here
[10:50] {ese} yes
[10:52] {Threei} someone stop gold
[10:52] {ese} rimm invalidated for me
[10:52] {Threei} yes
[10:54] {ese} which gold stock are you looking at
[10:54] {Threei} GLD
[10:54] {ese} tks
[10:54] {Threei} sheesh HIG
[10:55] {nemo} my quote servers keep messing up
[10:55] {ese} i'll say
[10:57] {ese} hig that is
[10:58] {Threei} quotes fine here
[10:59] {ese} this aone thing is nuts also.....now up 14% on the day
[11:00] {Threei} I want to find GLD top
[11:02] {Threei} could take a few tries
[11:02] {Threei} lave it alone if not ready
[11:02] {Threei} but if you are
[11:03] {Threei} Short Setup: GLD .25
[11:03] {Threei} stop .45
[11:03] {Threei} that retest of the high could easily turn out double top, that's qwhy I say could take a few tries
[11:04] {ese} it just occured to me.....i got heck from my teacher this morning.....with the rimm trade......man i haven't gotten heck from a teacher since 1972......sheesh it never ends
[11:04] {Threei} lol

[11:04] {ese} your lucky
[11:04] {Threei} but I want to learn
[11:05] {ese} your doing just fine by yourself
[11:05] {dino} stj sm l .00
[11:06] {Threei} market spike
[11:07] {Threei} good chance for GLD NOT to make new high, put in lower one and start crashing
[11:07] {Threei} break of .20 would signal downtrend from here
[11:07] {Threei} and if that happens won't be a scalp for me
[11:08] {Threei} hah
[11:08] {Threei} look at this:
[11:08] {Threei} - US equity indices opened higher for a second consecutive morning today and gained steadily in early trading. Dollar weakness is feeding into the picture, as the greenback continues to absorb fallout from the UK Independent's sensational (and now mostly discredited) claims about major industrial and crude producing nations dumping the dollar for oil trading.
[11:09] {Threei} now mostly discredited is opereative part
[11:09] {ese} l stj .00
[11:09] {dino} been talking about that for years
[11:10] {Threei} - The greenback limped into the New York session, still suffering damage from the UK Independent's big front-page article on the demise of the dollar despite subsequent denials by numerous officials. Dealers noted the whole drama showed the continuing vulnerability of the dollar and its inability to sustain strength in this environment unless there was a fresh bout of risk aversion.
[11:10] {dino} use your looney
[11:11] {Threei} don't do it GLD
[11:12] {nemo} aig top?
[11:13] {Threei} not sure

[11:33] {Threei} I have stop trailed to above breakeven, half covered,
[11:33] {Threei} and I want 101.70 - .80 area for eventual cover
[11:33] {Threei} scalpers be happy with what you have
[11:34] {Threei} we got 6 plays so far, won 5, got stopped on one
[11:34] {Threei} right?
[11:34] {Threei} so I have a traditional question
[11:34] {Threei} can I go home?
[11:34] {nemo} sure...now that you're there, whadya' gonna' do?
[11:35] {Threei} I didn't think that far
[11:36] {dino} don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out
[11:36] {Threei} there is a door?
[11:36] {strider} Is it the gap up on daily that makes you short GLD against the market trend? The double top?
[11:36] {strider} I'm +.10 on GLD by the way. thx.
[11:37] {Threei} double top is my favorite reversal formation,
[11:37] {Threei} and gold moving to new all time highs on USD weakness... how often do we see sutainable moves in gold?
[11:38] {Threei} I am willing to try and bet against it, as USD tests annual low,
[11:38] {dino} gj strider
[11:38] {Threei} rumors on get denied
[11:38] {strider} gj?
[11:38] {Threei} rumors on USD being dropped
[11:39] {dino} good job

[11:46] {nemo} and wee beasties
[11:49] {Threei} while we are waiting for the resolution on GLD and some other play to come along,
[11:50] {Threei} anyone went to watch this new Moorish movie?
[11:50] {Threei} good boy GLD
[11:50] {nemo} no
[11:50] {dino} nope, no desire to
[11:51] {Threei} neither here... he is a bit too puke-inducing for me
[11:52] {Threei} stop to above .20 on GLD
[11:52] {Threei} bidding 1/4 more .85
[11:55] {ese} i'm back....(say that with a scary tinge to the voice)
[11:56] {Threei} add that austrian-kaliforrrrnian accent
[11:56] {Threei} change it to "I'll be back"
[11:56] {nemo} right

[12:07] {nemo} aig dt pattern Vad?
[12:07] {Threei} no
[12:07] {nemo} just blew through
[12:07] {Threei} there was one 10:56 and 11:07
[12:07] {nemo} how about hig bottom?
[12:08] {Threei} .38 would be a long trigger on HIG but
[12:08] {Threei} I'll skip it personally
[12:08] {nemo} o.k. I'll bite...
[12:08] {Threei} doesn't feel right
[12:08] {nemo} why?
[12:09] {nemo} can't put your fist on it?
[12:09] {Threei} I can't see today's rally as anything but pure USD weakness phenomenon
[12:09] {Threei} and this reason is bound to play out rather quickly
[12:09] {dino} i see it as paniked shorts
[12:10] {Threei} it was all warm and fuzzy to get morning longs
[12:10] {dino} w/blow off top coming imo
[12:10] {magoo} i see it as dip buyers chasing in
[12:10] {Threei} yes dino, and look at volume
[12:10] {Threei} not only it's a blow-off top,
[12:10] {Threei} it's a blow-off top on very qyestionable volume
[12:11] {dino} right, yesterday too
[12:11] {nemo} volume looks solid today
[12:11] {dino} so i tell you what i yell to magoo at 3:50 every day..."clean 'em up"
[12:11] {Threei} on what??
[12:11] {Threei} volume is ridiculous
[12:11] {Threei} except gold
[12:12] {Threei} oh come on dino... surely you just mean those beer bottles magoo tends to leave all over the floor
[12:12] {dino} canadian $ new high for year
[12:12] {dino} lol
[12:12] {Threei} ugh... this I hate to see
[12:13] {dino} thats at 5:30
[12:14] {dino} see, even you like a weaker currency
[12:14] {Threei} of course I do.. I make money in USD and convert it to CAD
[12:15] {Threei} my happiest conversions were with loonie at .60
[12:15] {Threei} not so much near parity
[12:16] {dino} indeed
[12:16] {dino} vq spike
[12:17] {Threei} Market Internals update at 12:00pmET

[12:25] {Threei} not that there is anything wrong with it...
[12:26] {dino} lol
[12:27] {Threei} by the book, stop on GLD can be trailed to above .15
[12:28] {Threei} in practice, 5 cents is not overly important here
[12:28] {Threei} so, kind of personal choice
[12:28] {Threei} keep it above .20 to leave it some breathing room
[12:28] {Threei} or trail and keep it strangled
[12:29] {magoo} AIG

[12:35] {Threei} looks right to me strider
[12:35] {dptl} ok thx ye just updated mine
[12:35] {Threei} but the way I see it:
[12:35] {Threei} at this point, after yeileding nice profit and hanging arounbd, deciding which way to resolve
[12:35] {Threei} stock is no longer a subject of thinking and making some decisions.
[12:36] {Threei} It's simple trade management done by the routine
[12:36] {Threei} partial out, trail
[12:36] {Threei} wait for the next partial
[12:36] {Threei} and let the nature take its course
[12:36] {Threei} we get into all kinds of troubles when we try to outsmart the nature
[12:38] {strider} DLTR

[12:44] {strider} whatcha think of ALTH, Vad?
[12:45] {Threei} chart is right for the break but it's very slow and market-dependent...

[12:45] {strider} True. Only 35 cenets average range. thx.

[13:16] {dino} lucky dog
[13:18] {fernp} WFC db , Vad?
[13:19] {nemo} yep
[13:19] {Threei} formally, yes...
[13:19] {Threei} problem is:
[13:20] {Threei} .73 is DB confirmation, right?
[13:20] {Threei} and .60 support
[13:20] {Threei} so 1:1 would be around .85 - .90,
[13:20] {Threei} which is within easy reach of day high
[13:20] {Threei} looking at market chart,
[13:20] {Threei} do you see it likely to retest day high any time soon?
[13:21] {fernp} NO. I played .66 - .71 w/stop uder .60 (micro sclap)
[13:21] {Threei} :)
[13:24] {Threei} little quick scalp off obvious support with stop right under it is the only way I'd play WFC
[13:24] {Threei} jjst as you did

[13:46] {magoo} vad.......................
[13:46] {magoo} we in anything?
[13:46] {nemo} knew that was coming
[13:47] {nemo} coma?
[13:47] {Threei} sigh
[13:47] {Threei} I for one am in deep thinking about destiny of the humankind
[13:47] {nemo} extinction
[13:48] {Threei} great... thanks for ruining it for me
[13:48] {Threei} I didn't expect to find an answer
[13:48] {Threei} it'
[13:48] {nemo} I got the inside scoop....
[13:48] {nemo} don't tell anybody...
[13:48] {nemo} here it is....
[13:48] {Threei} it's a process of quest that had me excited
[13:48] {nemo} Pssssstttt....
[13:48] {nemo} 12/21/2012
[13:48] {Threei} that's soon enough to start spending money
[13:51] {dino} amn sm s .06
[13:54] {Threei} new low GLD... come on down
[13:56] {dino} cov amn mkt jumped
[14:02] {dino} amn try s again, sm wide break of .00 trig
[14:04] {dino} mkt looking at opening gaps
[14:07] {magoo} this is pretty brutal pllbk
[14:08] {Threei} WFC is beyond brutal
[14:08] {Threei} my instict to short everything in sight was right
[14:08] {nemo} look at aig and fcx
[14:08] {magoo} timing was off
[14:08] {Threei} not really, GLD was just right
[14:09] {Threei} the rest kept me away mostly because of volatility, not timing
[14:13] {strider} Ah...first case of scalper's regret. exited CIEN short at 13.19.
[14:15] {Threei} from where?
[14:15] {strider} .30
[14:16] {strider} no, .32
[14:17] {nemo} why @ .19?
[14:18] {strider} There was no reason to exit there. I got restless, cause I had been holding it for about 40 minutes. My bad.
[14:19] {nemo} no support until back on the 4th of September...then again 1:2 nothing to sneeze at
[14:19] {strider} ka-choo.
[14:19] {nemo} cute
[14:22] {dino} air pocket
[14:22] {Threei} much appreciated
[14:23] {Threei} what I'd like to see from here for the next month or so is,
[14:23] {Threei} big USD jump,
[14:23] {Threei} big gold/oil dump,
[14:23] {Threei} nice heslthy market pullback
[14:23] {Threei} healthy
[14:24] {dino} screw the bears, then screw the bulls
[14:24] {Threei} it's time, isn't it
[14:24] {dino} frustration incorporated
[14:24] {Threei} bulls had it too easy lately
[14:24] {Threei} and bears all but gave up
[14:24] {dino} pretty much
[14:25] {Threei} so from our stinkin' scalpers point of view... it's time to kill the other side
[14:26] {Threei} since we are side-neutral
[14:26] {nemo} indifferent
[14:27] {Threei} and don't give a flysing sneeze about bear or bull
[14:29] {dino} agnostic
[14:29] {nemo} Reminds me of a joke...
[14:29] {magoo} timing was off
[14:29] {nemo} I think I told this one...
[14:29] {nemo} What does a dislexic agnostic do? (should be easy)
[14:30] {magoo} quotes were stuk
[14:30] {dino} ?
[14:30] {nemo} Spends his time wondering if there is a Dog
[14:30] {dino} lol
[14:30] {nemo} clean one
[14:31] {larisa} actually it is an insomniac dyslexic agnostic :)
[14:31] {nemo} well that's one that lies awake at night...works for me
[14:32] {Threei} I object against using three longer than 2 syllable words in a row
[14:32] {Threei} insomniac
[14:32] {Threei} dyslexic
[14:32] {nemo} Hey...you used 4 multi-syllable words in one sentence earlier this week
[14:32] {Threei} agnosti
[14:34] {Threei} CNN won't shut up about credit card companies hiking rates - ahead of new rules
[14:34] {Threei} so let me get this straight - lawmakers decided to protect little guy
[14:35] {Threei} which led to rate hikes?
[14:35] {Threei} nice
[14:35] {nemo} yeah...lawmakers always ....the pooch
[14:35] {Threei} thank you idiots
[14:35] {Threei} what's next they intend to fix?
[14:35] {Threei} oh yes, health care
[14:35] {nemo} healthcare
[14:35] {Threei} and climate
[14:35] {nemo} finance
[14:35] {Threei} and finance
[14:36] {Threei} I am so looking forward
[14:36] {nemo} guns will come along soon
[14:36] {strider} They're not idiots. They know how to appease the hoi polloi and yet give the big corps what they want.
[14:36] {strider} Pass the law, effective sometime LATER}
[14:37] {nemo} Funny situation...how many people will say "screw it" and not pay their credit cards.
[14:37] {nemo} There are no loans being made, what do you need a credit score for
[14:37] {dino} scariest statement in usa, ron reagan said is "i'm here from gov't and i'm here to help"
[14:38] {nemo} Especially if you've lost your job and there's nothing on the horizon
[14:38] {Threei} the following dynamic image expresses my take on them quite clearly: http://realitytrader.com/vad/giveadamnprogress2mz.jpg
[14:39] {nemo} hehehehehehehe
[14:39] {nemo} that's too funny
[14:39] {strider} I do't get it, big Dan.
[14:40] {strider} Whoomp!
[14:40] {strider} don't
[14:40] {nemo} Big Dan?
[14:40] {strider} Oh, brother, where art thou
[14:40] {nemo} oh

[14:41] {nemo} modern version of Ulysses

[14:57] {strider} algore has no rithim
[14:57] {Threei} you can see a lot of similar charts on any givcen day
[14:57] {nemo} guess I don't get the Captain Obvious award

[09:59] {Threei} let's wait out ISM numbers
[09:59] {fernp} BRCM or BRCD?
[09:59] {ese} vad any opinion
[09:59] {Threei} BRCM no
[09:59] {Threei} BRCD, I am interested
[09:59] {ese} brcd....sorry
[10:00] {Threei} SEPT ISM NON-MANUFACTURING COMPOSITE: 50.9 V 50E
[10:00] {ese} not huge but ok?
[10:02] {Threei} market is not very ehtusiastic
[10:02] {nemo} I guess the service industry component isn't very exciting
[10:04] {Threei} Short Setup: AIG .50 break half lot
[10:04] {Threei} if stays under .70
[10:05] {Threei} not a scalp for me if works
[10:05] {Threei} aiming to cover closer to 42
[10:06] {Threei} and if market sells off sharply, quite possible lower
[10:06] {Threei} 1:1
[10:06] {Threei} half out
[10:06] {Threei} 42.08
[10:07] {Threei} stop to b/e for the balance
[10:08] {Threei} stop to above .30
[10:08] {dino} slab drop
[10:09] {fernp} BRCD on highs (not falling w/market)
[10:10] {Threei} yeah, oblivious
[10:12] {Threei} out second half AIG
[10:12] {Threei} +.31 and .14
[10:14] {ese} l brcd .91

[10:16] {Threei} 3 for 3
[10:16] {Threei} can I go home?
[10:18] {larisa} yes :)
[10:18] {Threei} Long Setup: HIG .65 break
[10:18] {Threei} BRCD works for ya ese
[10:18] {Threei} ty larisa
[10:19] {Threei} the only kind soul in whole room
[10:19] {fernp} 2 for 2
[10:20] {fernp} first AIG never triggered :)
[10:20] {fernp} out HIG ty
[10:21] {Threei} WFC, RIMM, AIG
[10:21] {Threei} that's 3 in my book
[10:21] {ese} out brcd .97 +.06
[10:22] {fernp} then 4 for 4, HIG hit 1:1
[10:22] {Threei} yes... I was calculating before it worked
[10:22] {fernp} youcan go home :)
[10:22] {Threei} yesss
[10:22] {nemo} Now that you're home..what next?
[10:23] {Threei} hmmm
[10:23] {Threei} I didn't think that far ahead
[10:23] {nemo} well, you're there, what are you doing?
[10:23] {Threei} I amthinking what to do
[10:23] {nemo} single malt...or blended?
[10:24] {Threei} wow... that's really early
[10:24] {nemo} it's after lunch in Europe
[10:24] {nemo} read mos vad?
[10:25] {Threei} short
[10:25] {Threei} smaller shares, volatile
[10:25] {Threei} .50 break
[10:25] {Threei} stop above .70
[10:25] {Threei} no aggresive entries, gotta see .50 broken
[10:27] {ese} vad how about hig at .80...breakout
[10:27] {ese} forget that question
[10:27] {Threei} yeah, too deep pullback
[10:29] {Threei} MOS, if works, not a scalp to me
[10:31] {Threei} US Defense Secretary Gates: Afghanistan has been difficult, the path is 'worrisome'
[10:31] {Threei} - Easing strains on army helped drive changes to fiscal 2010 budget
[10:31] {dino} mos reports after close
[10:32] {Threei} yeah... well, in any case we'
[10:32] {Threei} ll be goine long before that
[10:32] {magoo} RIMM trying vad
[10:33] {Threei} no way I am chasing it here
[10:33] {Threei} my paradigm has changed vs what we did over last few months
[10:33] {Threei} way less breakoutas,
[10:33] {magoo} maybe pllbk
[10:33] {Threei} more of pullbacks and range trades
[10:33] {Threei} some breakdowns
[10:34] {Threei} my main line of thoughts is:
[10:34] {magoo} where do i smell the bacon?
[10:34] {Threei} with everyone and their broether expecting deep drop in the market after prolonged run
[10:34] {Threei} and most of prophets going as far as expecting retest of March lows
[10:35] {Threei} I'd think tyhe most probable course of action here is sideways for a while
[10:35] {Threei} optimists expecting rally continuation and pessimists think retest of the lows will be equally disappointed
[10:36] {nemo} especially until earnings season shows it's stripes, or the $ changes
[10:37] {Threei} Being very good at fooling and disappointing the most people, that's what market should do here, IMO
[10:37] {Threei} and in a range bound market we play range, pullbacks and salmons
[10:38] {Threei} ok MOS... lose .40 and dies
[10:38] {Threei} -s
[10:38] {Threei} my typing hits new low today
[10:38] {Threei} I had some excuse earlier as action was very fast
[10:39] {Threei} here we go
[10:39] {Threei} hmmm
[10:39] {Threei} RIMM
[10:39] {nemo} market strengthening
[10:39] {Threei} C&H
[10:41] {Threei} MOS 1:1
[10:41] {nemo} ty
[10:42] {Threei} covering half
[10:42] {Threei} .22
[10:42] {dino} nice
[10:42] {Threei} want second half closer to 45
[10:42] {Threei} stop to b/e
[10:43] {Threei} good find nemo
[10:43] {nemo} blind squirrel
[10:43] {Threei} btw, in order to keep things qualified and defined,
[10:43] {Threei} MOS setup was salmon on the downside
[10:44] {Threei} DBI of course
[10:44] {nemo} yes
[10:45] {nemo} mos sitting on pivot support
[10:45] {Threei} MOS at this point is not a subject of thinking anymore,
[10:45] {Threei} it's a subject of trade management
[10:45] {nemo} no
[10:46] {Threei} routine... half out, stop trailed,
[10:46] {nemo} yes
[10:46] {Threei} either it continues or it goes above recent resistance
[10:46] {Threei} no sewcond guessing
[10:46] {nemo} except for scalpers...of course :)
[10:46] {Threei} yeah, those...
[10:48] {Threei} grrrr RIMM
[10:48] {Threei} C&H overcomes anything and everyting
[10:48] {Threei} powerful setup
[10:51] {Threei} MOS respected resistance to the cent
[10:51] {nemo} very polite
[10:51] {Threei} big offers are being taken out now...
[10:51] {Threei} maybe over
[10:52] {Threei} new offer for buyers pleasure though...
[10:52] {Threei} let's see
[10:52] {Threei} if this time .30 is taken to, probably bottomed out for now
[10:59] {magoo} WFC trying
[10:59] {Threei} done with MOS balance

[11:07] {Threei} what is?
[11:07] {Threei} oh, WFC?
[11:07] {magoo} ye4a
[11:07] {Threei} it's not WFC itself at this point, IMO
[11:07] {Threei} it's market
