Nov 30 2009

Nice day with a few relatively easy wins. Second half of the day was mostly inactive as we misread the market somewhat and preferred to stay on a sideline instead of pushing for the plays that didn't match our scenarios. Opted for some educational discussions instead.

Session Time: Mon Nov 30 00:00:00 2009

[08:59] {Threei} Moody's: Dubai World restructuring unlikely to threaten sovereign credit ratings of UAE and Abu Dhabi
[08:59] {Threei} - " The adverse impact of a Dubai World restructuring on the non-hydrocarbon sectors of the domestic economy could potentially be severe, especially in Dubai. However, overall macro-economic stability is protected by the country's strong net external creditor position that is bolstered by Abu Dhabi's accumulated oil wealth. "

[09:24] {ese} it's heading back there ST
[09:24] {Threei} okay guys
[09:24] {Threei} no clear opening plays
[09:25] {Threei} as it often happens on Mondays, things feel shaky and a bit hangoverish,
[09:25] {Threei} especially considering holiday beofre and Friday's shock of Dubai events
[09:25] {Threei} at this points it feel to me like the most probable scenario is:
[09:25] {ese} I was long .47 last round ST..........should have gotten out over 7 but exited in high .80's and low .90's
[09:25] {Threei} small initial selloff, not cery deep,
[09:25] {Threei} rally,
[09:26] {Threei} stall,
[09:26] {Threei} inactive period with slow slide, just a tad
[09:26] {Threei} inactive finish
[09:26] {Threei} that's working assumption...

[09:29] {Threei} the toy looks too good for traders
[09:29] {ese} 1 out of 5 so far vad.....seems like bit of a sell off to start
[09:31] {Threei} let's see if we get shallow pullback, then 12 break on SEED
[09:31] {Threei} risky as all momos are, but has potential to turn into big play
[09:32] {Moose} geeze
[09:32] {Threei} if you lost your mind and went for SEED, feel free to take profit

[11:12] {Threei} - operations are being conducted to ensure operational readiness at the Federal Reserve, the tri-party repo clearing banks, and the primary dealers. The operations have been designed to have no material impact on the availability of reserves or on market rates. Specifically, the aggregate amount of outstanding transactions will be very small relative to the level of excess reserves, and the transactions will be conducted at current market rates.
[11:14] {Threei} this pullback is much deeper than I expected

[12:36] {Moose} SEED blastoff
[12:38] {nemo} stocks are weak, it's not taking much to push them over, when lunch is over could be interesting afternoon

[12:43] {Threei} it's a separate destination Les... not a place to stay while exploring Victoria
[12:43] {Threei} a bit too long drive
[12:44] {Threei} and the road is not exactly for the faint heart
[12:45] {patience} incredible location though moose

[12:50] {Moose} lol
[12:50] {strider} a lot of turkeys, though.
[12:50] {Moose} i beg your pardon... lol
[12:51] {strider} Moose, I was born in Elizabethton.
[12:51] {Moose} thats barely in TN :)
[12:52] {strider} State of Franklin.
[12:52] {Moose} nice area
[12:52] {nemo} she's a nihilist les
[12:52] {Moose} i'm over in the flat muddy western part of TN
[12:53] {strider} Should be annexed by Arkansas.
[12:53] {strider} :)
[12:53] {Les} didn't even look Nemo. unfortunately Google insists on giving me German language search response
[12:53] {Les} cause I live in switzerland
[12:53] {nemo} go to google usa
[12:54] {Les} i enter search criteria straight into address bar
[12:54] {Les} only default of google chrome
[12:54] {strider} Memphis area really should be a state all to itself.
[12:54] {nemo} oh...firefox
[12:54] {Les} Vad, RIMM support at .75?
[12:54] {Moose} with prison walls
[12:54] {Les} bounce play?
[12:54] {strider} yeah.. state of anarchy.
[12:54] {Moose} lol
[12:55] {Threei} support yes... bounce off it or breakdown - no way to tell
[12:55] {Moose} nah, Memphis has some cool things to see and do
[12:55] {Moose} BBQ
[12:56] {strider} Buddy of mine owns Rangemaster, in Memphis. I go there to shoot sometimes.
[12:56] {Moose} nice
[12:57] {Moose} bbl... lunch
[12:57] {strider} RIMM sure is looking like a b/d
[12:58] {Threei} SEED is chewing through resistances
[12:59] {Threei} anyone went for it?
[12:59] {Les} I chose the wrong horse
[12:59] {Les} figured the larger, more stately steed as the surer bet...
[13:00] {Threei} don't try to rationalize either choice les, both were 50/50
[13:00] {Les} I shorting RIMM vad, you wait until .50 is triggered (low of the day)?
[13:00] {Threei} could be easy other way around
[13:00] {Les} If
[13:01] {Threei} it's breaking support right here
[13:01] {Threei} .50 is 25 cents away, how can you tell in what way it gets there
[13:01] {Les} yeh but still suspiscious of seed as momo play
[13:01] {Threei} if it drops sharply into .50, will you short it there?
[13:01] {Les} no
[13:02] {Threei} there you go
[13:02] {Threei} price alone is not enough to answer the question
[13:02] {Les} ok, so .75 is legit support setup to play from?
[13:03] {Threei} again - if you don't mind 50/50 play
[13:03] {Threei} market just doens't do anything here
[13:03] {Threei} meaning, it can do anything next moment
[13:03] {Les} that's fine. I get to ask questions and do dinner instead of staring at screen
[13:04] {Threei} thus, market followers like RIMM will be just as random
[13:04] {Les} ok. want to ask you if you play poker or bridge?
[13:04] {Les} starting to see your setups as poker game
[13:04] {Threei} oh, and I don't know why I am wasting time here, a box with 15 millions in cash will be delivered to me by UPS from Bank of Afrika if I only send them:
[13:05] {Threei} 1.YOUR FULL NAME
[13:05] {Threei} 2.YOUR HOME ADDRESS.
[13:05] {Threei} 3.YOUR CURRENT HOME TELEPHONE NUMBER.
[13:05] {Threei} 4.YOUR CURRENT OFFICE TELEPHONE.
[13:05] {Threei} 5.A COPY OF YOUR PICTURE
[13:05] {Les} so, what are you waiting for?
[13:05] {Threei} nothing, quickly sending
[13:05] {Threei} and btw, it's not my spelling, email does say Afrika
[13:06] {nemo} south africa
[13:06] {nemo} Afrikaans
[13:06] {Les} reading other day that quantum physicists are no longer in vogue in wall st, now poker players are being sought for trading
[13:06] {nemo} yep
[13:06] {Threei} what's the analogy here Les?
[13:08] {Threei} reason I ask:
[13:08] {Threei} there are valid analogies between trading gambling, and there are meaningless ones
[13:08] {Threei} I often hear this comparison,
[13:08] {Les} able to press bets when moment is right
[13:08] {Les} discipline, patience...
[13:09] {Threei} but there is no way to tell whether one who cites it underdtands where real analogies are until he explains
[13:09] {Les} ah no, not that patience
[13:09] {Les} understanding of probabilities. do you need maths to play poker?
[13:09] {Threei} there was a mopvie describing a professional gambler approach
[13:09] {Threei} which hit many things right on
[13:09] {nemo} 21
[13:09] {Threei} Rounders
[13:09] {nemo} oh yeah, Matt Damon
[13:09] {Threei} yup
[13:09] {nemo} good movie
[13:10] {Les} 21 is name of movie?
[13:10] {nemo} bad accent on Malkovich
[13:10] {nemo} 21 was about the MIT students
[13:10] {Threei} speaking of movies... we forgot to ask fern how he liked 2012
[13:10] {Threei} to put it short,
[13:11] {Threei} those who liken trading to gambling in a sense that you just make your bets and hope for luck have no idea what they are talking about
[13:11] {Les} ah no, not at all the analogy i was reading
[13:11] {strider} lelap
[13:11] {Threei} those who see similarities in spotting the odds and patterns in those games where there are such
[13:11] {nemo} "why does everyone say 'good luck' when you tell them you're going to Vegas?"
[13:11] {strider} LESP
[13:11] {strider} damn
[13:11] {Threei} and utilize them with steel discipline
[13:11] {strider} LEAP
[13:12] {Threei} LEAP Hearing Dealreporter speculating that LEAP could be a target for PCS
[13:12] {Threei} those got it right
[13:12] {Threei} US Treasury's Barr: US mortgage plan has already shown progress, but banks must now "do their part" on loan programs
[13:12] {Threei} - Barr and TARP chief Allison are meeting with large loan servicers today
[13:24] {strider} AMZN up from 95 to 135 in 6 weeks.
[13:26] {Threei} LEAP still trying

[14:32] {Threei} I am very tgempted to come up with this huge misterious story
[14:32] {Moose} lol
[14:32] {Threei} about list being locked in a case chained to someone's hand
[14:32] {Threei} guarded by hiredninja
[14:32] {Moose} a russian guy?
[14:33] {Threei} but... RIMM, AIG, CAT,
[14:33] {Threei} momo plays that come and go
[14:33] {Threei} HIG, SEED, NLST
[14:33] {Les} I've only been here a month Moose and the names have changed
[14:33] {Threei} now and then some stocks stay with us for weeks
[14:33] {Threei} or days
[14:33] {Moose} ok thx
[14:34] {Threei} like last summer favorite, UAUA
[14:34] {Threei} or last fall DRYS
[14:34] {Threei} and I was this close to calling AIG tghe love of my life
[14:34] {Moose} heh
[14:34] {Threei} when darn thing changed its ways on me
[14:35] {Les} will we get to play some more reverse splits next year (or whatever they call what they did to AIG during summer)?
[14:36] {Threei} if they decide to revive the likes of C, FRE, FNM...
[14:36] {Threei} ABK
[14:37] {Threei} look at CAAS
[14:37] {Threei} momo is momo is momo
[14:38] {Moose} both ways!
[14:40] {Les} what's AIG doing Vad? bounce and more breakdown?
[14:40] {Threei} reverse split is two-sided coin...
[14:40] {Threei} more oiften than not it;'s a kiss of death
[14:40] {Threei} I have no idea les
[14:41] {Threei} you want me to predcit what happens next
[14:41] {Threei} that's not how my thinking works
[14:41] {Threei} well, providing I have any
[14:41] {Les} no, just wondering if you can see ticker movement
[14:41] {Threei} I see it
[14:41] {Threei} how does it allow to answer your question?
[14:41] {Les} aah a comedian
[14:42] {Threei} better think what else is there in what I said, aside from standing joke
[14:42] {Les} dunno. has it bottomed out?
[14:43] {Threei} let's try again
[14:43] {Threei} ticker shows what happens this very second,
[14:43] {Threei} chart shows what happened before
[14:43] {nemo} could play short double bottom or break long, but it's staying udner trend lines les
[14:43] {Les} thank you nemo
[14:43] {Les} :P
[14:43] {Threei} you ask what is going to happen next
[14:43] {Threei} but I don't think in these terms at all
[14:44] {nemo} probabilities, no certainties
[14:44] {nemo} like marriage
[14:44] {Threei} I use chart and ticker in order to spot recognizable situation
[14:44] {Threei} and I have pre-canned reposnses
[14:44] {Threei} to those situations
[14:44] {Threei} whatever happens - happens, it doesn't matter
[14:44] {Threei} call it fatalistic trading
[14:44] {Threei} my responses are built on odds
[14:45] {Threei} in a long run those odds will work for me
[14:45] {nemo} don't call yourself odd, Vad...
[14:45] {Threei} without guarantee of success in any given case.
[14:45] {Threei} just being honest nemo
[14:45] {Les} yes I sh
[14:45] {nemo} it's what it implies about me
[14:45] {Les} yes I should know that now
[14:45] {nemo} fcx very close to support here
[14:46] {Les} I have your 7 setups pasted on the table
[14:46] {Threei} see now why I have troubles answering what AIG is doing, oputting bottom, or justg bouncing before breaking down again?
[14:46] {Threei} now,
[14:46] {Threei} let me show you how the question should be shaped up
[14:46] {Threei} so I could answer it
[14:46] {Threei} in terms of my way of thinking.
[14:46] {Threei} what sghould AIG do for this to be a bounce or a breakout?
[14:47] {Threei} and here is my immediate answer, as it would be a few minutes back:
[14:47] {Threei} consolidate under .45, let's say not losing .30, and break .45 - and we have a long play
[14:47] {Threei} or
[14:47] {nemo} we're getting volume characteristics for db here
[14:48] {Threei} return under .30,
[14:48] {Threei} consolidate between .30 and .15
[14:48] {Threei} and break .15 for a short play
[14:48] {Threei} see now how this way of thinking works les?
[14:48] {Threei} and becomes instructional?
[14:49] {Threei} it takes you our of realm of prediction
[14:49] {Les} y. so can we play it?
[14:49] {larisa} lol
[14:49] {Threei} and gets you into universe of standard responses to standard situations
[14:49] {nemo} and don't forget the market
[14:49] {Threei} where you stay a detached observer
[14:49] {Threei} cold as cucumber
[14:49] {Threei} emotionally I mean
[14:50] {nemo} well, I've been described as "unhinged"
[14:50] {nemo} is that detached?
[14:50] {strider} good call nemo.
[14:50] {nemo} on what? self reference?
[14:50] {larisa} on FCX :)
[14:50] {strider} fcx
[14:50] {Threei} that's how "trade what tyou see, not what you think" manifests itself in your actions
[14:50] {nemo} oh, shit, I was paying attention to vad
[14:51] {Moose} lol
[14:51] {Threei} by now you should know better nemo
[14:51] {larisa} me too, missed AIG at .15 for scalp :) vad needs to keep quiet
06[14:51] * nemo never heard a moose laugh before
[14:51] {Threei} sorry
[14:51] {Threei} I will
[14:51] {Threei} from now on
[14:51] {larisa} lol
[14:51] {nemo} rotfl
06[14:51] * Threei shuts up fo the week
[14:51] {strider} oh, no. Now he's gonna wanta go home.
[14:52] {nemo} nice going Lari
[14:52] {Moose} :/
[14:53] {larisa} it was a joke btw vad, do not hope for break like that :)
[14:53] {Les} sorry. money lost due to my needs. Will buy a round of drinks when I make it to Bahamas
[14:53] {nemo} you hurt his feelings...he's sensitive
[14:53] {Threei} sorry Larisa, too late - I have no sense of humor
06[14:53] * nemo passes vad a tissue
[14:53] {Threei} and yes, I am very sensitive... sniff sniff
06[14:54] * Threei looks around from under his palm to see if his act is being bought
[14:54] {nemo} interesting, market weakened, but aig holding
[14:54] {Moose} SEED
[14:55] {Threei} it's not holding nemo, it's consol,idating
[14:55] {nemo} fine
[14:55] {nemo} tomato tomahhhhto
[15:00] {Moose} test
[15:00] {Threei} SEED is quite something
[15:07] {BillyD} can't seem to nail the one explosive move on it
[15:08] {BillyD} or any move for the most part
[15:09] {Threei} no other way to do it but get a feel
[15:09] {Threei} they don't obey technicals
[15:10] {nemo} actually, seed gave to beauties off 12.25 and .65 look at the volume configurations
[15:12] {Threei} true
[15:12] {nemo} ty
[15:13] {Threei} see, I better do what I promise and shut up
[15:13] {nemo} of course, one would question the validity of such a setup when the stock has been momo
[15:16] {Les} cat
[15:17] {Les} ignored CAT upper range movement to my detriment. Thought it was going to drop back down.
[15:18] {Les} ah I see spy exploding
[15:18] {larisa} momo players use technical indicators too, i would think. i do not believe they trade with their feelings only, it would be hard :) "Momentum" indicators do exist.
[15:18] {nemo} does Mags have feelings?
[15:18] {larisa} this is what i am thinking about :)
[15:18] {larisa} not sure how he trades
[15:19] {Threei} anyone finding the way to read such plays, feel free to share
[15:19] {BillyD} darts...lol
[15:20] {Threei} to me precise in what I see as major difficulty with them:
[15:20] {Threei} to be
[15:20] {Threei} they most often spikes out of nowhere after quiet period of sitting near some support level
[15:20] {Threei} in practice it means that in order to be in such play early,
[15:21] {Threei} you have to enter before any momentum indicator shows anything
[15:21] {Threei} and the sheer speed of those spikes is such that no sane amoun t of chasing is possible
[15:22] {Threei} remember we discusased this manner of spiking on AIG a week or two ago?
[15:22] {Threei} then SEED did pretty much the same quite a feww times
[15:22] {Threei} including today,
[15:22] {Threei} 14:37 and on
[15:23] {BillyD} AMZN
[15:24] {strider} For the magoo plays, would be helpful to enter early, and set stops on both sides of trade.
[15:24] {strider} auto stops
[15:24] {strider} ??
[15:26] {Threei} I am at loss about how to answer it
[15:26] {strider} Did I say something stupid?
[15:26] {Threei} no
[15:26] {Threei} I mean
[15:26] {Threei} I see no obvious connection between these plays and auto stops,
[15:27] {nemo} that was a fat pitch
[15:27] {Threei} and I see the most difficulty with how to find the right entry
[15:27] {Threei} which is not connected to auto stops
[15:27] {strider} oh yeah...there's that.
[15:27] {Threei} so either I don't understand what connection you mean
[15:27] {Les} vad, AMZN!
[15:28] {nemo} or it's as he said
[15:28] {Threei} or you are trying to resolve something other than what I see as main problem
[15:28] {strider} Well, I guess I see the big problem as being getting out on a spike, up or down.
[15:28] {strider} The kind that last half a second.
[15:28] {strider} That's just my particular weakness right now.
[15:29] {strider} Taking the money while it's available.
[15:29] {Threei} magoo solves it by laying out his exit in advance
[15:29] {strider} IOW, putting an offer in.
[15:29] {Threei} but it's not even the only way to do it
[15:29] {strider} ?
[15:29] {Threei} yes
[15:29] {Threei} try this:
[15:30] {Threei} let's say you feel tou are happy with exit at .20,
[15:30] {Threei} stock is spiking into there
[15:30] {Threei} you have price in your ordr bar at .10
[15:30] {Threei} and cursor hovering over Sell
[15:30] {Threei} Limit sell of course
[15:30] {Threei} stock is spiking to .20 and pausing
[15:30] {Threei} you click
[15:31] {Threei} you will swipe .19, .18
[15:31] {Threei} if it's not pausing you don't click
[15:31] {Threei} but you are just as rfeady, and the moment it stalls you click
[15:31] {Threei} wherever it happens
[15:32] {strider} OK} if you're that far away from inside market with your order when you click, why not just use market order?
[15:32] {strider} Will it make a differencce?
[15:33] {Threei} seriosly willing to risk the situation where if you are just a tad late, bids get pulled and you get filled at .00, only to see it immeiately spiking back to .10?
[15:33] {Threei} I don't suggest 10 cents per se,
[15:33] {Threei} I am describing situation where you buy at .10
[15:33] {Threei} stock spikes very fast
[15:33] {Threei} so you don't even have tiome to change the price
[15:34] {Threei} btw, look at another SEED spike from 13.20
[15:34] {Threei} vertical from there... I really don't see any indicator helping with that
[15:39] {larisa} around 15:30?
[15:40] {strider} All I see is that there's really no enthusiasm for selling.
[15:40] {strider} Hence an upside bias.
[15:42] {Threei} yes larisa
[15:42] {strider} my comment refers to the few minutes prior to the spike.
[15:42] {nemo} I just see volume gradually increasing into the price rise, and then it hops up over the bb ma
[15:49] {nemo} stt and hig goosed out of nowhere
[15:50] {Moose} BUCY making nice move up
[15:52] {Les} the jig is up on this session. night all.
[15:53] {Moose} adios Les
[15:53] {Threei} take care Les
[15:54] {Moose} scalped a little BUCY
[15:56] {Threei} okay guys, not too bad start for the week
[15:57] {Threei} thank you all
[15:57] {Threei} have a good evening, see you tomorrow
[15:57] {nemo} c u
[15:57] {Moose} thanks to you
[15:57] {Moose} cya
[15:57] {strider} thanks vad...
[15:57] {larisa} bye :)

[08:51] {Threei} JP) Japan Strategy Min: Japanese govt and BoJ will deal with the yen currency together
[08:51] {Threei} - says BoJ recognizes Japanese deflation and knows what to do about it
[08:51] {Threei} good for them
[08:51] {Threei} noone else does
[08:52] {Threei} (FR) France PM Fillon: Resources in Dubai region will ensure problems do not become a second crisis; current issue in Dubai is a continuation of old issues
[08:52] {Threei} (GE) Germany Bundesbank Exec: Economy will 'barely' grow after the year 2020
[08:52] {Threei} hmmm
[08:53] {Threei} what is it going to do between now and then ?
[08:53] {fernp} Good morning everybody
[08:53] {Threei} fern :)
[08:53] {Threei} USD/UAH (UA) Ukraine Dept Central Banker: Could purchase USD in efforts to avoid volatile currency gains
[08:54] {Threei} beautiful... their buying of all of 6 dollars they can buy will rwally support USD
[08:54] {Les} well they can siphon off Russian gas illegally to buy US dollars?
[08:55] {Threei} yes, that may lift their purchasing power to $6.72
[08:55] {Threei} IA) IAEA Envoy: Patience is running low with Iran; cannot continue repeated rounds of unsubstantiated talks
[08:56] {Threei} US) Retail Analyst Dana Telsey: Forecasts holiday sales "flat to slightly up" this year -CNBC
[08:56] {Threei} - Notes that "Black Friday" sets the tone for the holidays
[08:56] {Threei} (IA) Iran says UN resolution jeopardizes condusive environment for discussions
[08:56] {Threei} - Iran will reduce 'goodwill gestures' with IAEA inspectors; studying other options for Tehran research reactor
[08:57] {Les} hmm Ukraine looks like good value in curreny exchange. Anything you can suggest we should go see in Ukraine?
[09:01] {Threei} well... Kiev is a nice city, some of ancient monasteries
[09:02] {Threei} famous Kiev-Pecher Lavra
[09:03] {Les} ouch. the flights aren't cheap though...
[09:04] {Les} bloody european airlines, charge an arm and a leg
[09:04] {Threei} you are kidding
[09:04] {Les} Ukraine got an airline?
[09:04] {Threei} in Canada it's a common knowledge that ours are the most expensive, and Europian ones are cited as example of cheap onwe
[09:04] {Les} ha
[09:05] {Threei} they do
[09:05] {Les} I want to travel to the US, if naught else you can get good flight deals with the US airline industry
[09:05] {Les} during off peak periods
[09:05] {Threei} US used to be cheap
[09:05] {Les} waiting for $ to go somewhat lower
[09:06] {Threei} not anymore, there are a lot of fees and charges for every sneeze
[09:06] {Les} common pheonomena here as well
[09:06] {Les} how do you look at today's opening?
[09:06] {Les} PPT markup coming?
[09:06] {Threei} with passing interest
[09:06] {Les} or big selloff?
[09:06] {Threei} why PPT?
[09:07] {Threei} I mean, is there buying that is not of PPT making?
[09:07] {Threei} or any time market gets bought it must be PPT?
[09:09] {Les} thinking more along lines of maintaining confidence
[09:09] {Threei} just interesting how everyone thinks PPT is capable of anything
[09:10] {Threei} and attributes to it any time dropping market gets bought
[09:10] {Threei} if they really had such overarching powers, how come we got such a brutal selloff a year ago?
[09:10] {Threei} destroying confidence, capital, lifes
[09:11] {Les} 'cause they don't have power of god
[09:12] {Les} buy we do know how to cover our bottoms when the *%it hits the fan
[09:12] {Les} and as we see in Dubai, we're still covering our bottoms
[09:12] {Threei} wasn't last fall the crucial time to cover those bottoms?
[09:12] {Threei} I don't even know what the big deal about Dubai is
[09:13] {Threei} extravagant real estate projects that were questionable even at best times
[09:13] {Threei} blow up in bad times
[09:13] {Threei} not really big financial scaleww
[09:13] {Threei} what is it, 60B?
[09:14] {Threei} I see it this way:
[09:14] {Threei} this Dubai thing is either and excuse to finally start the descent
[09:14] {Threei} or just a trap for bears that see a glim of hope
[09:15] {Les} a trigger or a trap?
[09:15] {Les} hmmm ok
[09:15] {Threei} no one at this point know which it is
[09:15] {bkhmd} gm all
[09:15] {Threei} bkh :)
[09:15] {Les} hey bk
[09:16] {bkhmd} stalking anything?
[09:16] {ese} morning
[09:16] {Threei} ese :)
[09:17] {Les} ese
[09:17] {Threei} thinking of shorting financials into bounce
[09:17] {Threei} WFC is one of those
[09:17] {fernp} PCU, OGE and SPH nice C&H on daily fwiw
[09:17] {ese} les
[09:17] {Threei} FAZ on watch
[09:18] {ese} whats up with the mkt vad.....don't see any news
[09:19] {larisa} gm :)
[09:20] {ese} larisa
[09:20] {Threei} larisa :)
[09:20] {Threei} Dubai ese
[09:20] {larisa} ese, vad :)
[09:20] {Threei} was all over the news yesterday
[09:20] {ese} what happened there......
[09:20] {ese} don't get tv or the news
[09:21] {Threei} dfeault on debt
[09:21] {ese} huh
[09:21] {ese} really
[09:21] {ese} the entire flippin country
[09:22] {Threei} well, Dubai is one of little states within UAE
[09:22] {Les} that beautiful Dubai property scheme they were crowing to the whole world about a few years ago....
[09:22] {Les} is in the toilet.
[09:22] {Les} how that is justice.
[09:22] {ese} yup.....meaning ...of course....the rest of them are probably in default
[09:22] {Threei} I doubt it
[09:23] {Threei} the rest have oil
[09:23] {Threei} Dubai has extravagant real estate projectsa
[09:23] {ese} and dubai doesn't
[09:23] {BillyD} who does Dubai owe money to then? rest of world?
[09:23] {ese} american banks
[09:23] {Les} HSBC
[09:23] {Les} hahaha
[09:23] {Threei} I don't know... but this is interesting question
[09:24] {Threei} everfy time I hear that all the states in the world are in debt, I can't help but wonder
[09:24] {Threei} if ALL of them owe money, who do they owe it to
[09:24] {Threei} and if all of them owe money, then let's just call it even and start anew maybe? :)
[09:24] {strider} Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
[09:24] {BillyD} or, is this newss mkt needs as a reason to sell off
[09:25] {dino} gm all
[09:25] {Threei} on top of it all, to add uncertainty - it's a short session
[09:25] {Threei} dino :)
[09:26] {BillyD} stuff like this just proves "Trading in the Zone" book by Douglas
[09:27] {BillyD} mkt dynamics
[09:27] {dino} citi is on the hook for some thats the big us bank involved
[09:27] {strider} skf
[09:27] {strider} sorry....got keyboard's mixed up
[09:28] {dino} should have held that gdx short
[09:28] {Threei} yeah

[09:28] {Threei} so is oil
[09:29] {Threei} and thank goodness, loonie
[09:29] {dino} vxx
[09:30] {Threei} let's see if we can get good entry on FAZ
[09:31] {Threei} pullbck under .30
[09:31] {Threei} or break of .40 if .30 is holding
[09:32] {Threei} if loses .30, don't jump in
[09:32] {Threei} let's see where it bottoms out
[09:32] {Threei} then wait for it to form upper limit
[09:32] {Threei} and break it
[09:33] {Threei} so far .30 is forming as break trigger
[09:33] {dino} gaps filled ndx and s/p 11-13 and 11-20
[09:33] {dino} remaing in nov. 11-6; 9936, 1730, 1069.
[09:33] {Threei} Long Setup: FAZ .30 break if holding .20
[09:34] {bkhmd} my quotes correct? DOW -19X?
[09:34] {Threei} 197
[09:34] {Threei} invalidated
[09:35] {Threei} Long Setup: QLTI .65
[09:35] {Threei} if holding above .50
[09:36] {lasertrev} gm
[09:36] {Threei} trev :)
[09:37] {magoo} morn..hoope all had nice holiday
[09:38] {Threei} Long Setup: FAZ .85 break if holding .75

[09:39] {Threei} 1:1 FAZ
[09:39] {fernp} ty
[09:39] {bkhmd} ty
[09:39] {Threei} MGM MIRAGE CNBC's Faber: Sources saying that there is little concern about funding link between Dubai World and MGM's City Center project; City Center has now been fully funded
[09:39] {Threei} - Note: on 11/25 MGM Commented on the Dubai announcement and highlighted that it would have no impact on its CityCenter project
[09:41] {Threei} wat6ching LVS for pullback
[09:43] {Threei} would like to see something like .30 - .40 to get interested
[09:44] {Les} why? is it because of this consolidation zone offering support?
[09:45] {Threei} that would be depth of pullback likely to generate enough buying inetrest again, and it would be close enouigh to support for provide good stop
[09:45] {Les} k
[09:47] {strider} out QLTI +.12
[09:47] {fernp} ty Vad
[09:48] {Threei} 1:1 QLTI
[09:48] {Threei} nice and easy
[09:48] {Threei} never even went under entry point, let alone jeopardizing the stop
[09:48] {Threei} that's how I like them
[09:48] {strider} yeah,, let's just do that kind from now on.
[09:49] {Threei} we need Trev to implement that "do not entry losing trades" button
[09:49] {Threei} do not enter
[09:49] {Les} so Trev is one of "them" is he?
[09:49] {strider} It's the executing mode button in menu bar.
[09:50] {Les} so how do you see LVS now Vad?
[09:50] {Threei} the same
[09:50] {Les} amateurs moved in first thing to buy it up?
[09:50] {Threei} I want good pullback
[09:50] {fernp} HD seems strong
[09:50] {Threei} why amateurs?
[09:51] {Threei} maybe amateurs panicked with their market sell orders,
[09:51] {Threei} and prose are taking advantage of pullback?
[09:51] {Threei} merrily buying from weak hands?
[09:51] {Les} just trying to define how LVS is moving, breathing?
[09:51] {Les} no question mark
[09:54] {ese} haven't seen this before on my screens.....not one alert on Euphoria or JBE ....interesting

[09:54] {Threei} - WMT asked the court to deny a lawsuit that sought to restrict store closings when employees join unions, taking a stance against Quebec's Labor Relations Act. Union workers sued under the Act after Wal-Mart shut their store.

[10:29] {ese} really
[10:29] {ese} i can't remember the last time i did it
[10:29] {Threei} for many who traded mostly on a long side, have ingrained notion of sell as close the trade
[10:29] {Threei} and started trying shorting
[10:30] {ese} hmmmmmmm
[10:30] {ese} ya i can see that
[10:33] {Les} NLST ready to give us a short?

[10:34] {dino} esi stop to .20
[10:34] {dino} make it .22

[10:38] {BillyD} watching RIMM to see if short setup at 58
[10:39] {Threei} Short Setup: FAZ .60 break
[10:39] {ese} i'm thinking Jan is going to be real interesting
[10:39] {Threei} if stays under .70
[10:39] {ese} down big is what i'm expecting
[10:40] {Threei} fade is a valid trade too
[10:41] {dino} out esi .37, +.86
[10:41] {bkhmd} Dino come trade my account WOW Good Work Dude
[10:43] {dino} thx lucky thats all
[10:44] {Threei} lol
[10:44] {ese} l drys .17
[10:44] {Threei} it's a double luck then dino: luck to win and luck to have such a consistent luck
[10:45] {ilana} after how many times luck considered success?
[10:45] {bkhmd} Ok vad lets go back to wednesday and re-vote
[10:45] {Threei} that's a question to be answered at deathbed
[10:45] {Threei} why bkh?
[10:45] {bkhmd} no I understand why you suggested it
[10:46] {bkhmd} slow
[10:46] {Threei} well, we have 2 for 2
[10:46] {bkhmd} yes
[10:46] {Threei} so it was worth waking up
[10:47] {bkhmd} i agree with that
[10:47] {Threei} and you know what... let's trail FAZ to above b/e
[10:47] {Threei} we are close enough to 1:1
[10:47] {Threei} let's cut the risk to idiotically small
[10:48] {strider} out +.008
[10:48] {strider} 08
[10:48] {Threei} 3 for 3 then for you
[10:48] {strider} only taken two trades....
[10:49] {strider} QLTI & FAZ
[10:49] {strider} missed something
[10:49] {Threei} FAZ long earlier
[10:49] {Threei} FAZ short now
[10:49] {strider} yeah...
[10:49] {Threei} and QLTI
[10:49] {Threei} so, let's see
[10:49] {Threei} FAZ+FAZ+QLTI
[10:50] {Threei} yeah, three
[10:50] {bkhmd} lol
[10:50] {dino} distracted. but as for the luck, in this market i believe that profits are luck, losses are skill. too random intraday
[10:52] {BillyD} Vad, when u said fade idea on FAZ short call were you talking buying of short aggressive into the bounce before break down
[10:52] {BillyD} or short aggressive
[10:52] {Threei} no
[10:52] {dino} have to call it a day, taking mon. and tues. off. good luck all
[10:52] {Threei} fade as in:
[10:53] {BillyD} cya dino
[10:53] {Threei} take the opposite side of the setup if it invalidates
[10:53] {bkhmd} take it long
[10:53] {fernp} bye dino
[10:53] {Threei} take care dino, have a good weekend
[10:53] {bkhmd} later dino
[10:53] {Les} ciao dino
[10:53] {dino} :)
[10:53] {Les} wanted to ask you about that Vad
[10:53] {BillyD} ok, got it
[10:53] {Threei} so it would be long on .70 break if never lost .60
[10:53] {Threei} when, finally
[10:53] {fernp} out TY Vad
[10:53] {Threei} out FAZ
[10:53] {Les} ty
[10:53] {Threei} .49
[10:53] {Threei} 3 for 3
[10:54] {Les} ty for the trade and explaining fade move
[10:54] {Threei} sure thing
[10:59] {BillyD} Vad, look at AMZO, nice chart but follow thru is ?
[10:59] {BillyD} AMZN
[11:00] {Threei} I like the chart... had it been normal trading day, I'd call it without hesitation
[11:00] {Les} NLST double top?
[11:00] {BillyD} ty
[11:00] {Threei} or C&H if breaks .50
[11:01] {Les} ah ok
[11:02] {ese} l drys avg .20
[11:03] {Les} CAT found its way back to support again. Impression that someone's supporting this stock. but a setup?
[11:04] {Les} not game today
[11:04] {Threei} support?
[11:04] {Threei} or resistance?
[11:04] {Les} 200 ma on 60 min.
[11:04] {Les} back above
[11:05] {Threei} 58 break was nice legit C&H
[11:05] {Les} gonna stick a big c&h example on edge of my screen...
[11:06] {Threei} (IA) Iran Govt responds to censure; claims resolution by IAEA is of a theatrical nature; 'useless' - state news agency
[11:06] {Threei} hey, first time in my life I agree with Iran
[11:06] {Les} nah, lets bomb em
[11:07] {BillyD} useless rhetoric
[11:11] {Les} you were right vad. double dose resistance 15 min. for CAT. If can break that would like to go long.
[11:11] {Threei} at what price?
[11:12] {larisa} 60 :)
[11:12] {Threei} we have time then
[11:12] {Les} that your trigger price or profit target larisa?
[11:13] {Threei} let me make Larisa's life easier:
[11:13] {Les} CAT stop getting bigger than I wanted.
[11:13] {Threei} {larisa} neither... it's a joke
[11:13] {Threei} I don't undertsnad Les
[11:13] {Threei} describe the play you envision
[11:14] {Les} at moment I spoke of CAT
[11:14] {Threei} yesa
[11:14] {Les} .20 stop
[11:14] {Threei} that's what I am looking at
[11:14] {Threei} which entry?
[11:14] {Les} upon new high
[11:14] {Les} .35
[11:14] {Threei} wow
[11:14] {Les} or .33
[11:14] {Threei} that's an entry I would never go for
[11:15] {ese} ese gives drys forceful nudge with the ictus of directors baton
[11:15] {Threei} this pullback is a valid entry
[11:15] {Threei} that break is not
[11:15] {Les} why?
[11:15] {Les} CAT needs pullback first?
[11:15] {Threei} because it's a top of vertical spike aftre the break
[11:15] {Threei} we buy break of consolidation
[11:15] {Threei} not the break after such spike
[11:16] {ese} thats the pointy part for you musical laymen
[11:16] {Threei} look at 1 min chart'
[11:16] {larisa} 15 and 60 min charts are too long horizon for me. I think for scalping multiple frames will confuse you a lot of times. And what 15min chart player sees as support/res, for scalper can mean opposite. it is like comparing aaples and peaches.
[11:16] {Les} y
[11:16] {strider} ese, you're just talking dirty again.
[11:16] {Threei} 11:03, break of 58, C&H formation
[11:16] {Threei} quick move to above .30
[11:17] {ese} never thought of it that way
[11:17] {Threei} which is 1:3 for that break
[11:17] {Les} y
[11:17] {Les} ok. never thought of it like that
[11:17] {Threei} do you want to go long at 1:3 without new consolidation first?
[11:17] {Threei} if yes, then think of it this way:
[11:18] {Threei} is there any spike you wouldn't want to buy at the top?
[11:18] {Threei} what would it have to be, 1:5? 1:10?
[11:18] {Les} ok so we buy break from consolidation, not an extension of the break itself
[11:19] {Threei} we SELL into those spikes!
[11:19] {fernp} Don't you have TTR?, Les
[11:19] {Les} so that's what I'm doing wrong :O
[11:20] {Les} y
[11:20] {Threei} get back to basics Les
[11:20] {Threei} crowd chases spikes
[11:20] {Threei} spikes reverse on the crowd
[11:20] {Threei} crowd gets creamed
[11:20] {Threei} smart money buys before the spikes
[11:20] {Threei} smart money sells into spikes to the crowd
[11:21] {Les} y. now we speak of it ttr trade examples come back to mind
[11:21] {Threei} smart money trakes crowd's money
[11:21] {Threei} be smart money
[11:21] {Threei} eschew being the crowd
[11:21] {larisa} whats eschew
[11:21] {Les} so with CAT chart in front of me
[11:21] {Threei} two answers larisa
[11:21] {Threei} 1. it's a sneeze sound
[11:22] {Threei} 2. it's a fancy word for "avoid"
[11:22] {Les} where are interesting consolidation zones for you?
[11:22] {Threei} pick what you like :)
[11:22] {larisa} I like both
[11:22] {Threei} you can have both
[11:22] {Threei} it's Thanksgiving, I am kind
[11:23] {bkhmd} Les are you on a one minute chart?
[11:24] {BillyD} Hey guys/gals, have a good wknd, gotta run
[11:24] {bkhmd} later Billy
[11:24] {Threei} take care billy, have a great weekend
[11:24] {larisa} bye Billy :)
[11:24] {Threei} I don't understand the question Les
[11:25] {fernp} bye billy
[11:25] {ilana} bye billy
[11:26] {bkhmd} if I may Les look at the CAT 1 min starting at around 10:20 forward starts a dented ugly cup and handle consolidation just under 58
[11:26] {bkhmd} break of 58 would have been a good start
[11:27] {Threei} beautiful bkh
[11:27] {bkhmd} previous support at 57.89
[11:27] {Threei} perfect description of the setup
[11:27] {bkhmd} with could have given us a fair stop
[11:27] {bkhmd} i wasnt watching it at the time
[11:39] {Threei} market is in its normal freeze
[11:43] {bkhmd} im gonna paper trade and practice range trading
[11:45] {Threei} I am gonna sleep with my eyes open and practice pretending that I am wide awake
[11:45] {bkhmd} toothpics work well
[11:45] {Threei} actually I have it down to art
[11:45] {Threei} trading in my sleep for years and you never suspcted
[11:45] {bkhmd} yes i did
[11:45] {bkhmd} lol
[11:46] {Threei} other than my suspiciously bad typing
[11:46] {fernp} Today I am running Laser in windows 7. Works fine. fwiw :-)
[11:46] {strider} Vad is artistically reclined.
[11:46] {Threei} but I made a point to type just as bad in rare instances when I am awake
[11:46] {Threei} so you can't tell
[11:47] {Threei} fern, the early adopter
[11:47] {strider} fern, do you have a computer dedicated to just Laser?
[11:47] {Threei} I will switch to W7 in a few more versions, lol
[11:47] {fernp} yes
[11:47] {Les} sorry quick taxi trip
[11:47] {bkhmd} DOS rules eh VAD?
[11:47] {strider} I'm still on XP pro.
[11:47] {Les} yes I recognise consolidation break out.
[11:47] {Threei} lol
[11:48] {Threei} XP Pro 64 bit here
[11:48] {Threei} nice, smooth, fast
[11:48] {fernp} Yes I use widows xp 64 too
[11:48] {Threei} what else do I need
[11:48] {Threei} only when they stop supporting it will I consider change
[11:48] {Les} but if CAT had broken through to new highs, that would be chasing for you, would it Vad?
[11:48] {fernp} That happened a month ago, Vad
[11:49] {Les} yes here too. XP until no further support.
[11:49] {Threei} you mean if it broke that .333 area? yes, that would have been a whole lot of chasing
[11:49] {Threei} just as .10 or .20
[11:51] {magoo} SEED boss
[11:51] {magoo} nuts
[11:51] {strider} On Wednesday, however, Microsoft said consumers who still have Windows XP running after April 2009 will be entitled to five more years of "extended support."
[11:51] {strider} http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16805062/
[11:52] {bkhmd} awsomeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
[11:52] {Threei} toughie mags
[11:52] {Threei} no that crazy pace
[11:52] {fernp} Microsoft may have little choice but to support XP for an extended period since most of its business customers have not upgraded to Windows Vista.
[11:52] {Threei} that gives away the momo
[11:53] {fernp} Microsoft Pledges Windows XP Support Through 2014 http://www.informationweek.com/news/windows/operatingsystems/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=208800494
[11:53] {Threei} cool... 2014 it is
[11:53] {fernp} yeah
[11:53] {Threei} and if they continue making crappy new OSs, maybe even longer
[11:54] {strider} So MSFT will support XP two years after the end of the world...that's dedication to their product.
[11:54] {fernp} lol
[11:55] {fernp} im going to watch that movie tonight
[11:56] {Threei} do you like special effects fern?
[11:56] {fernp} yes
[11:56] {Threei} would you enjoy the movie that is entirely shot for them, and the plot is there only to stitch them together?
[11:57] {fernp} no, i get tired
[11:57] {Threei} hmmm
[11:57] {Threei} then you may not like it as much :)
[11:57] {Threei} but if you suceed in turning your brain off
[11:58] {Threei} and letting your eyes enjoy it
[11:58] {Threei} you wqill l,ove the movie
[11:58] {Les} so its like watching election campaign
[11:58] {fernp} I'll think only in the popcorns...
[11:58] {fernp} lol
[11:59] {Threei} it's a total eye candy
[11:59] {Threei} not mind candy though :)
[11:59] {fernp} i like movies like matrix, plot and effects
[11:59] {Threei} since I am very good at turning brain off, I enjoyed it very much
[12:00] {fernp} one of my favorites movies is The Game
[12:00] {Threei} with Douglas?
[12:00] {fernp} yeah
[12:00] {strider} oh, yeah....,me too, fern.
[12:02] {Threei} tough to pick absolute winner, many are good... but if I absolutely had to, it would probably be Once upon a Time in America
[12:02] {Threei} or Pulp Fiction
[12:02] {fernp} i like that one
[12:02] {fernp} the first
[12:02] {fernp} Once's upon...
[12:03] {ilana} that's my winner too
[12:03] {Threei} US Treasury and Fed to delay internet gambling ban effective date for 6 months to June 1
[12:03] {ilana} watched it 3-4 times and each time get it ifferently
[12:04] {Threei} true
[12:04] {Threei} one ofd those that you perceive differently over the years
[12:04] {Threei} actually, goes for both
[12:05] {Threei} BoA analyst comments on Dubai: markets may be overreacting, but the situation does have some broader implications (timing uncertain)
[12:05] {Threei} - "There is no doubt that this episode has hurt sentiment towards the Gulf, and UAE in particular, and this lack of confidence will make it very difficult for the UAE to issue new debt to finance the approx $21.2B of Dubai World debt maturing in the next three years. Whilst we think the reaction in the markets yesterday may have been an overreaction given the size and relative importance of Dubai to the global economy,
[12:05] {Threei} this episode does have some broader implications. It serves as a stark reminder as to just how sensitive global markets are to bad news, particularly on a thin tape. This will certainly make governments and central banks even more cautious about their stimulus withdrawal and the methods in which they choose to communicate the exit strategies to the market. The market action over the last two days shows that despite the outsized returns since the March lows the market remains ready and willing to punish mistakes."
[12:08] {Threei} US Obama Administration 'monitoring closely' the developments in Dubai situation - CNBC
[12:09] {Threei} lol... demosntrate first that you are capable of monitoring who enters your highly guarded state dinners
[12:09] {bkhmd} he was never in harm
[12:09] {bkhmd} lol
[12:10] {strider} AMZN short?
[12:10] {Threei} no way to tell...
[12:10] {Threei} fairly random
[12:11] {strider} descending triangle
[12:11] {Threei} more or less...
[12:11] {Threei} problem is,
[12:12] {Threei} while upper limit for stop placement is defined quite nicely
[12:12] {Threei} trigger for the tyrade is very fuzzy
[12:12] {Threei} so, we have second part:
[12:12] {Threei} "if stays below .50"
[12:12] {Threei} but what is the first?
[12:13] {strider} .20 looks pretty good to me. No?
[12:13] {magoo} depends also if IF mkt rips up into close or not
[12:13] {Threei} 30 cents stop?
[12:13] {Threei} and count on drop under 132?
[12:13] {strider} yeah
[12:13] {fernp} I told my wife that the film is not very good, and she has thrown me a shoe at head ... I think I'll go to watch it
[12:14] {Threei} and all this on a stock that pretty much depends on the market
[12:14] {Threei} was it a stiletto fern?
[12:14] {fernp} yes
[12:14] {Threei} cool
[12:14] {Threei} it's a very sexy way to die
[12:15] {bkhmd} with film are we talking about
[12:15] {fernp} but i've ... how is your word
[12:15] {Threei} stiletto thrown at your head by a woman with deadly accuracy
[12:15] {Threei} which takes us to another good movie: Kill Bill
[12:15] {bkhmd} then u would have to change ur name to one eye Vad
[12:15] {Threei} 2012, bk
[12:16] {fernp} i've eschewed the shoe is that correct? :-)
[12:17] {Threei} yes :)

[12:18] {Threei} oh good, no tutu then
[12:19] {larisa} but it will, do not worry vad :)
[12:19] {Threei} well, but if it doesn't, cocnut bra for you?
[12:20] {larisa} no, too cold here
[12:20] {magoo} any read APWR vad?
[12:20] {Threei} down feels more probable mags but no setup that I see
[12:21] {magoo} wow..i thought up
[12:21] {Threei} ideally, I'd love it to come down to .50, consolidate a bit, then break it down
[12:21] {Threei} that would be the one I'd take
[12:22] {Les} today was informative. more time studying your setups vad in future, less thinking about money. Friends are around and the bottle open. have a good weekend.

[12:42] {Threei} QLTI UPDATE: RBC Raised QLTI to Outperform from Sector Perform, price target: $6
[12:42] {Threei} I knew there was the reason we played QLTI
[12:42] {Threei} it's just the the reasin came after we profited from it

Nov 25, 2009

Extremely low volume and narrow day where we struggled to find any trades. We elected to remain relaxed and a bit goofy... the result is just that - goofy, and the room voted to keep this log to ourselves. Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers!

[10:28] {Les} Vad, 3rd time lucky b/o of NLST?
[10:28] {Threei} no exit?
[10:29] {Threei} doesn't look too encouraging to me, NLST
[10:29] {strider} dummy me...I was thinking it was a .15 stop.....I guess because of the 1`/2 lot.
[10:29] {strider} sigh.
[10:29] {cosmo} NLST bears getting full imo
[10:30] {ilana} can you explain why NLST doesn't look too encouraging
[10:30] {strider} Boy I sure blew that trade.
[10:30] {magoo} shake it off..NEXT
[10:31] {strider} :}
[10:31] {Threei} instead of making higher highs and higher lows, NLST makes both,
[10:31] {Threei} higher highs and lower lows
[10:31] {cosmo} high volume distribution .... churning behavior.....
[10:31] {Threei} expnading range
[10:31] {Threei} not my favorite way to say the least
[10:32] {Threei} shakes you out on both, breakouts and breakdowns,
[10:32] {Threei} and doesn't allow for range trade as range is broken both directions
[10:32] {Threei} solid 1:1 this time RIMM

[10:49] {Threei} how come no one wants to buy any of those excellent car lines GM collected over decades?
[10:49] {Threei} oh wait...
[10:49] {BillyD} same reason no one wants to buy the cars
[10:49] {nemo} funny...TCM still uses bloodletting, but you remove drops of blood from specific acupuncture points
[10:49] {Threei} scary thought... could be, just maybe... they are not... that excel... no,, I can't even finish that
[10:50] {Les} Saab's are ok. Rather quirky design though. A scandinavian thing...
[10:51] {Threei} maybe for Europe... here their sheer size is ridiculous
[10:51] {fernp} do u like TGT if breaks .50, Vad?
[10:51] {cosmo} the Sonit was my favorite
[10:52] {Threei} for a scalp, mayube...
[10:52] {Threei} if market jumps
[10:52] {fernp} ok
[10:52] {cosmo} sonnet
[10:52] {Threei} lukewarm to say honestly
[10:53] {Threei} just buy smart car cosmo... you know you want it
[10:53] {Threei} and you have no snow... one of two things that make it not so smart
[10:53] {Les} descending triangle on WFC?
[10:53] {fernp} i'll pass TGT
[10:54] {larisa} forget cars, sales of luxury yachts are up 200%. vad did you buy yours?
[10:54] {Threei} it just follows market tick by tick right now Les
[10:54] {Les} k
[10:54] {Threei} no significance to its own formation at this point
[10:55] {Threei} no larisa... those yachts I like are too high maintenance :)
[10:55] {Threei} require crew
[10:55] {dino} lol
[10:56] {Les} c&h aig?
[10:56] {BillyD} Vad, put Cap't Nemo to work
[10:57] {Threei} not really AIG
[10:57] {larisa} small boat painted brightly like they do in the Carribean will work too :) next to small house over there
[10:57] {Les} sorry. its following spy as well
[10:57] {cosmo} 1956 Saab Sonett I Super Sport might be a good investment about now
[10:58] {cosmo} http://1951kaiser.files.wordpress.com/2009/04/saab_sonett-red_56.jpg
[10:58] {larisa} AIG was worth a try off 34.30 support, but was so slow and paceless
[10:59] {ilana} SEED .95 breakdown with market drop?
[10:59] {ilana} late
[10:59] {nemo} see the break of the trend line on seed at 11.10 ilana?
[10:59] {Les} let's see if we get it at .80 trigger
[10:59] {Les} wow
[11:00] {Threei} if you are looking to short SEED, better do it at the points like nemo indicated
[11:00] {nemo} ouch!!!
[11:00] {larisa} lol
[11:01] {nemo} fell off my chair
[11:01] {ilana} lol
06[11:01] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large chair - that same nemo just fell off
[11:01] {Threei} feeling better?
[11:01] {ilana} wouldn't it be too agressive?
[11:02] {Threei} it would,
06[11:02] * nemo nemo crawls in cave...closes door...grabs teddy...pulls blanket over head
[11:02] {Threei} but the point is:
[11:02] {Threei} this speed of decline cuts both ways,
[11:02] {nemo} especially on a stock everybody's watching
[11:02] {Threei} and if you short into vertical drop, it's very easy to get caught in hysterical counterspike
[11:02] {dino} seed drop
[11:03] {nemo} where you been dino?
[11:03] {Threei} first break of th uptrend though, even if you end uip on a wrong side carries way smaller stop
[11:03] {Threei} lol dino... that dial-up is really slow
[11:03] {dino} lol
[11:03] {nemo} I think he's using carrier pigeons
[11:03] {dino} i was in the future, sorry, just got back

06[11:24] * magoo slaps Les around a bit with a large trout
[11:24] {Threei} GOOG
06[11:24] * nemo slaps Les around a bit with a large trout
[11:24] {ese} 15 min chart is screamin it
[11:24] {Threei} no, really?
[11:24] {Les} ah no, spy follower
[11:25] {Threei} yeah, that's the only thing that is wrong with GOOG
[11:25] {Threei} lol
[11:25] {Les} that's pretty hard slapping there fellas
[11:25] {nemo} seed break of .90 stop under .70
[11:25] {nemo} ?
[11:25] {Threei} nah
[11:26] {BillyD} stocks seem to come within pennies today

[11:29] {Threei} imagibe slippage on GOOG
[11:30] {ese} pausing dino
[11:31] {Threei} Short Setup: SEED .85 break
[11:31] {nemo} cat looking a tad precarious, might be a short of .60
[11:32] {Threei} if stays under .90
[11:33] {strider} Why was that a short?
[11:33] {ilana} ILMN eventually worked
[11:33] {Threei} it wasn't
[11:33] {Threei} it nevere triggered
[11:34] {strider} I know. but what made you call it as a short. ?
[11:34] {Les} ascending wedge?
[11:34] {Threei} minirange with support at .85
[11:34] {nemo} seed still might be setting up for short
[11:34] {bkhmd} I agree nemo
[11:35] {Threei} formed at the top (at the moment) of the bounce
[11:35] {magoo} i think SEED is a short and a long just about timing and levels
[11:35] {nemo} funny guy
[11:36] {ese} ceph p 125 in vads book........flatline at the high

[11:47] {strider} How can you possibly make any sense out of that chart, dino? :)
[11:48] {Les} k
[11:48] {nemo} he does it all the time strider...rorschach tests are Dino's specialty

[12:00] {ese} ahhhhhhh and it's another call!!1
[12:01] {Threei} wow... must be a good book, people endure physical violence not noticing it
[12:01] {BillyD} maybe short SEED on .80 here
06[12:01] * Threei thinks of suggesting his book to surgeons as anestetic
[12:02] {strider} nah, give em Farley's book for that.
[12:02] {nemo} nahhh...sharp edges
[12:03] {fernp} invalidated SEED for two cents?
[12:03] {Les} no its hardcover. very good for defence
[12:03] {ilana} let;s flip a coin
[12:04] {nemo} becomes discretionary
[12:09] {nemo} jeez, ceph just doesn not want to go above 55
[12:10] {ese} yaaaaa driving me nuts
[12:10] {nemo} ese...that's impossible
[12:11] {ese} whaaaaaaaaa
[12:11] {nemo} (you're already there :))
[12:12] {ese} ahhhhh I represent that remark
[12:12] {nemo} I realize it's the pot calling the kettle black..but...takes one to know one
[12:12] {ese} the longer ceph bumps up against 55 the farther it will go once it gets through
[12:13] {larisa} vad, you can kick nemo
[12:13] {nemo} well, the FW 200 period and vwap are moving up...they're both at .90
[12:14] {Les} lol
[12:14] {larisa} why so much attention to CEPH, it is dead? let it wake up first
[12:14] {larisa} or somebody in?
[12:15] {Threei} does the reason for the kick appear on main screen?
[12:15] {larisa} I have all comments off, so not for me
[12:15] {Les} yes
[12:16] {Les} jcp bounce coming?
[12:16] {Threei} it's so narrow
[12:17] {Threei} even if yes, what to count on... 5 cents?
[12:17] {Les} hmm. trawling through S&P charts. like digging up tombs...
[12:17] {strider} amzn break of .30?

[12:19] {ese} thats agreed
[12:19] {nemo} or short at top of pullback?
[12:19] {BillyD} range is so small hard to do anything right now
[12:19] {nemo} then again, it's only .07 to support
[12:20] {Threei} market is locked in a very narrow range - and so are all these stocks
[12:20] {Threei} until we get direction again, all these trades are just 50/50 coin toss
[12:20] {BillyD} unless you trade SEED, it expands its range
[12:20] {larisa} lol
[12:27] {Threei} (US) President Obama: Plans to announce new Afganistan strategy soon (related EUR/USD GLD )

[12:37] {Threei} blackmailing Europe
[12:37] {Threei} with that funny refrain "we are too civilized to use natural gas as a weapon"
[12:38] {Threei} Preview: minutes of the Nov 4 FOMC meeting to be released at 14:00ET
[12:38] {Threei} **in a unanimous vote on Nov 4, the FOMC held rates again at 0.25% and maintained its pledge to hold rates exceptionally low for an "extended period." In its policy statement, the FOMC reduced its agency debt program to 'about' $175B from $200B and stated:
[12:38] {Threei} - Economic activity "has continued to pick up."
[12:38] {Threei} - Businesses still cutting back on fixed investment and staffing, yet at lower pace
[12:38] {Threei} - Household spending seems to be expanding; spending affected by job losses and tight credit; lower housing wealth.
[12:38] {Threei} - Economic slack and low inflation justify low rates.
[12:38] {Threei} - To gradually cut the pace of agency debt and MBS purchases (to purchase total $1.125T of agency mortgage backed securities); expects completion by Q1 2010.
[12:39] {Threei} also,
[12:39] {Threei} Preview: Treasury's $42B 5-year note auction results due just after 1PM ET
[12:39] {Threei} - $42B auction size is a $1B increase from Oct
[12:39] {Threei} - prior bid-to-cover ratio 2.63 with an average of 2.28 over the last 10 auctions
[12:39] {Threei} - indirect bidders took 54.8% of competitive bids at last auction with 2.81% alloted at the high
[12:39] {Threei} - When Issued notes currently yield 2.18% which is roughly 4 basis points higher than the cash market
[12:39] {Threei} maybe some day I'll learn to interpret results of these auctions
[12:43] {ese} one breif shinning moment .......again
[12:43] {ese} brief
[12:45] {ese} auch du miya........
[12:46] {nemo} hey ese...you practicing threeish?
[12:46] {ese} threeeish?
[12:46] {nemo} [12:43] {ese} one breif shinning moment
[12:47] {ese} 3i?
[12:47] {nemo} yeah
[12:47] {ese} lol........ahhhhhh ya.....ya ya thats it
[12:47] {larisa} or 3e :)
[12:47] {Threei} you don't practice it... it either comes to you as a beam of shining hope through the dark heavy clouds of worldwide misery... or you are pretty much screwed
[12:48] {larisa} no, you still can spell and be happy at the same time:)
[12:48] {ese} indeed
[12:49] {larisa} dino, we still waiting for the pullback under 10k or pattern is broken?
[12:50] {larisa} he is checking it in the future :)
[12:51] {ilana} no, he simply didn't get the message yet :-)
[12:52] {dino} i think we go to 9900s by end of month or early dec.. but what do i know
[12:53] {larisa} ok
[12:53] {dino} 400-600 pt pullback are the pattern
[12:54] {larisa} if we shoot up from these levels without good pullback, I will learn treeish
[12:54] {larisa} caz it is equally crazy
[12:59] {Threei} I really hope you are right dino
[12:59] {Threei} we need ranges to widen
[12:59] {Threei} these long periods of freeze become tiresome
[13:00] {nemo} open the bottle
[13:00] {Threei} I am not as anxious as magoo, but even I want more action
[13:00] {Threei} nemo, this comment you just started typing
[13:00] {strider} ese, you're an old song and dance man....entertain vad for awhile.
[13:00] {Threei} don't even think about it
[13:01] {Threei} strider, here is the problem with that concept:
[13:01] {Threei} ese demands shishkebab for that
[13:01] {Threei} and I end up the entertaining one {G}
[13:01] {strider} hmmm....

[13:48] {Threei} Preview: minutes of the Nov 4 FOMC meeting and updated Fed staff economic forecasts to be released at 14:00ET
[13:48] {Threei} **today's minutes may include further discussion of the Fed's testing of repo programs, and could also inlcude talk from inflation hawks worried about the size of the balance sheet. But such hawkish talk may be discounted on the heels of an unexpected large rise in the unemployment rate to 10.2% a few days after the FOMC meeting. Since then, Fed Chairman Bernanke delivered a dovish speech (last Monday) that might dampen the impact of any more hawkish tone in today's minutes.
[13:49] {bkhmd} IMHO Pizza Hut Supreme cant be beat
[13:49] {magoo} really dont like pizza hut

[14:39] {Threei} (US) House Democrats are drafting a 0.25% tax on financial transactions, aiming to raise $150B/year - thehill.com
[14:39] {Threei} - Under a bill being drafted by Democratic Reps. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) and Ed Perlmutter (Colo.), the sale and purchase of financial instruments such as stocks, options, derivatives and futures would face a 0.25% tax.
[14:39] {Threei} - The bill, a copy of which was obtained by The Hill, is titled the "Let Wall Street Pay for the Restoration of Main Street Act of 2009."
[14:39] {Threei} - Half of the $150 billion in tax revenue would go toward reducing the deficit, while the other half would be deposited in a job creation reserve to support new jobs.
[14:39] {Threei} ***Insight: A Tobin tax is the suggested tax on all trade of currency across borders. Named after the economist James Tobin, the tax is intended to put a penalty on short-term speculation in currencies. The original tax rate he proposed was 1%, which was subsequently lowered to between 0.1% and 0.25%

[09:42] {Threei} Preview: Oct Existing Home Sales due out at 10amET
[09:42] {Threei} **consensus expectation: 5.70Me (+2.3% m/m) v 5.57M prior.
[09:42] {Threei} - range of expectations is between 5.2M to 6.0M.
[09:42] {Les} sorry still bad spread
[09:45] {Threei} watching WFC
[09:45] {Threei} short idea
[09:45] {Threei} Short Setup: WFC 28 break if holding below .10 for scalpers, .15 for day traders
[09:49] {bkhmd} in
[09:51] {strider} Vad, read on CEPH?
[09:51] {Threei} 55 break worth a try
[09:52] {strider} thx
[09:53] {Threei} die already WFC
[09:54] {Les} water torture to begin the week...
[09:55] {nemo} les...remember how mags and I bitched about rimm on friday...dumb bastards us
[09:55] {Threei} Analysts at Goldman Sachs look at seasonality effects into Dec/Jan; Continue to see Dec as one of the best historical months for equities
[09:55] {Threei} - State that monthly data back to 1974 shows trend of Dec outperformance, the stronger the year, the stronger the Dec
[09:55] {Threei} - Underperforming sectors in Dec tend to be oil/gas, retail, and miners
[09:55] {Threei} - Outperforming sectors in Dec tend to be travel, chemicals, banks and telcom
[09:56] {fernp} numbers in 4min
[09:57] {Threei} WFC doesn't feel like water torture - rather like a stock with high tension, when it resolves - it resolves very fast
[09:57] {Threei} whiever way it choses'
[09:57] {Les} so WFC testing 28 but failing. does this imply that easiest way is still down?
[09:57] {Threei} when it happens during upward market thrust, yes
[09:58] {Threei} inverted salmon behavior
[10:00] {Threei} *OCT EXISTING HOME SALES: 6.1M V 5.7ME
[10:00] {bkhmd} oooops
[10:00] {Threei} (+10.1% m/m)
[10:01] {bkhmd} grabbed my stop and fell back down WFC stinks
[10:01] {Threei} Total Months Supply: 7.0 months(lowest since Jan 2007
[10:01] {Threei} stop? offer never went above .10
[10:02] {bkhmd} i had my stop at .10
[10:02] {bkhmd} should have been .11?
[10:03] {Threei} first, yes.... and second... was it automatic one??
[10:03] {strider} printed at .17
[10:03] {Threei} those were out of bound prints
[10:03] {Threei} sutomatic stops will be tricked by them
[10:03] {Threei} one of reasons I hate hardwired stops
[10:03] {bkhmd} yes it was auto at .10 and filled at .07
[10:04] {Threei} why do you need them?
[10:04] {Threei} you are right here
[10:05] {fernp} now yes. stopped
[10:05] {Threei} yep
[10:05] {bkhmd} u r correct I will try without just scared of fast mover and not getting out in time WFC is not fast move shouldnt have used auto
[10:06] {Threei} sloqwish broker is much bigger problem for this than the choice between auto/manual
[10:08] {strider} como se dice en ingles, "sloqwish".
[10:08] {fernp} lol
[10:08] {bkhmd} shorthand for TradeStation
[10:09] {strider} yo entiendo. gracias. :)
[10:10] {strider} USG takeover chatter
[10:10] {Les} AIG at bottom of cup vad?
[10:11] {Threei} .40 break is a valid setup but it's not C&H
[10:12] {Threei} salreo, admin asked to ask you to check your e-mail please

[10:17] {Threei} Long Setup: SYMC .10 break
[10:17] {Threei} if holding above 18
[10:18] {Threei} .05 for extreme scalpers
[10:19] {Threei} slow one
[10:19] {Threei} don't go for it if you want fast resolution
[10:19] {nemo} no wham bam thank you mam stock?
[10:19] {Threei} not likely
[10:20] {nemo} don't do it les
[10:20] {Les} what, do the trade or complement your last comment?
[10:21] {nemo} if you don't like water torture stock
[10:21] {Les} ah. Im in
[10:21] {nemo} hasn't triggered yet dude
[10:22] {Les} yes it has... now
[10:22] {nemo} yep
[10:22] {Les} finding myself always too late. given probability that this continues to go up. I bought .10
[10:26] {ese} out 1/2 fitb .13 +.08 22.5
[10:26] {Les} see BAC trying to make new high. but banks in no hurry to go up today
[10:26] {ese} 22.5k
[10:26] {ese} houses money......lets see what happens
[10:26] {Threei} wtg
[10:27] {Threei} nothing is in particular hurry so far
[10:27] {ese} tks.....it feels predicable to me again....for now anyway
[10:28] {strider} CEPH consolidating again at 54.5.
[10:28] {Threei} leave it alone strider
[10:28] {Threei} CEPH is a widowmaker today
[10:29] {strider} I'm looking at a retest of major support at 53.50-54
[10:29] {Threei} this battlefield will be strewn with corpese of bottom-fishers today
[10:29] {Threei} corpses
[10:30] {ese} thats a russian term for navy guys who pulled submarine duty isn't it?
[10:30] {ese} widow maker
[10:30] {Les} bac
[10:30] {nemo} goes for a lot of things ese
[10:30] {strider} SEED upgrade
[10:30] {ese} true
[10:30] {nemo} loggers it's deadfall trees leaning against other trees
[10:31] {ese} never heard that for loggers
[10:32] {nemo} yeah, branch breaks, deadfall comes down
[10:33] {ese} would make sense.......heard more about injuries from choke wires when they snap.
[10:33] {BillyD} Q's in 6pt range for last 30 min
[10:34] {Threei} Market Internals update at 10:30amET
[10:34] {Threei} - NYSE volume 220M shares, about 21% below its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 22.6:1.
[10:34] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 455M shares, about 17% below its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 5.1:1.
[10:34] {Threei} - VIX index -3.9% to just under 21.50
[10:34] {Threei} where is magoo... SEED is today's momo
[10:35] {Threei} dino is not here either... internet troubles, or they have their first snow
[10:36] {strider} they don't trade when it snows?
[10:36] {Threei} not if they can't get in the office
[10:36] {Threei} SYMC, don'r run that fast, you may burn your skin and get blisters
[10:38] {BillyD} just looked at SYMC, it blew a tire hitting .14
[10:39] {BillyD} may work though
[10:39] {nemo} looks like indices ight be getting ready to break their ranges
[10:40] {larisa} to upside?
[10:40] {nemo} yeah
[10:41] {Threei} SYMC new high, whole cent higher than old high
[10:41] {Threei} SEED clawing its way toward 9
[10:46] {fernp} AIG extremely slow today
[10:46] {Threei} SYMC, merely 2 cents left to 1:1
[10:46] {Threei} meaning it should happen this century
[10:46] {strider} Vd...always the optimist.
[10:46] {nemo} heavy breather
[10:47] {strider} Vad
[10:47] {Threei} I want to believe
[10:47] {Threei} make your decision guys
[10:47] {Threei} it makes new 52 week highs,
[10:47] {Threei} climbs slowly and confidently
[10:47] {Threei} which bodes well for continuation
[10:48] {Threei} on another hand, this is scalpers market
[10:48] {Threei} so... kind of personal choice
[10:48] {Threei} take scalp or partial and try to milk it
[10:49] {Threei} for hardcore scalpers playing 50K shares (Threei squints at ese), this one is above 1:1 already
[10:49] {Threei} NYMX
[10:49] {Threei} Nymox Pharmaceutical Corporation Releases Positive New Clinical Trial Data on Durability of Benefits for Early Responders to Company''s BPH Drug
[10:49] {Threei} - Results were statistically significant (p less than .001) and the data was obtained from all available and eligible patients assessed at up to 19 months post treatment.
[10:50] {Threei} NYMX is a funny stock
[10:50] {Threei} sometimes runs hard
[10:50] {Threei} saometimes fizzles out quickly
[10:51] {Threei} never holds its gains for real
[10:51] {ilana} i missed SYMC .10 entry, where would u suggest to get in?
[10:51] {Threei} don't chase it
[10:51] {Threei} this train's gone
[10:51] {strider} amzn read?
[10:52] {ilana} ok
[10:52] {Threei} if anyone wants to buy Ukraine, now's time:

[10:52] {Threei} SEED UPDATE: Rodman & Renshaw, Inc. Raised SEED to Mkt Outperform from Mkt Perform, price target: $15
[10:52] {Threei} none strider
[10:52] {Threei} 9 is on the nose, SEED
[10:54] {Les} coulda, woulda, wished I. you gonna invite mags to bahamas to give run down on momo?
[10:54] {Threei} there is no rundown to be given
[10:55] {Threei} you need to get enough experience with them to develop a feel for them
[10:55] {Threei} this is not a kind of things that can be put in a set of rules
[10:57] {fernp} ilana, SYMC at .12 now
[10:57] {strider} that was my entry.
[10:57] {Les} PWR going to hell in handbasket
[10:58] {ilana} ok, will keep an eye on it, thx
[11:03] {Threei} you watching SEED les?
[11:05] {Les} yep. most interesting game in town
[11:05] {Threei} make sure you have all three windows up
[11:05] {Threei} chart, level 2, T&S
[11:06] {Les} spread has tightened up
[11:08] {Les} pwr going to make new lows?
[11:08] {Threei} SYMC lost will to live
[11:09] {Threei} most likely, PWR
[11:09] {fernp} SYMC stop is still below 18. isn't it?
[11:09] {Threei} very hard to tell
[11:10] {Threei} it was so close to 1:1 that maybe trailing to under .05 makes sense
[11:11] {fernp} ok
[11:12] {Threei} Short Setup: RMBS 17 break
[11:13] {BillyD} .15 stop and preferably .10 if holds right?
[11:13] {Threei} eqzaktly
[11:16] {fernp} out SYMC
[11:17] {Threei} died quiet peaceful death
[11:18] {Les} seed consolidating?
[11:18] {Threei} why didn't we take RMBS aggressively
[11:18] {Threei} would be covering half here
[11:18] {Threei} consolidating?
[11:18] {Les} b/o
[11:18] {fernp} RMBS stop is .15 or .10?
[11:19] {nemo} you have that huge order at .00
[11:19] {Threei} 30 cents spike in two bars is a spike, not consaolidation
[11:19] {Threei} matter of taste fern
[11:19] {Threei} both are valid
[11:19] {Threei} but if triggers from here not going over .10, it becomes a more solid one
[11:19] {fernp} is RMBS too volatile?
[11:20] {Threei} sometimes... it changes
[11:26] {Threei} 1:1, mind you
[11:26] {strider} missed the crap out of that one.
[11:27] {Threei} the only way to get it was to hit 17 bid as it melted down
[11:27] {fernp} was imposiible
[11:27] {BillyD} out ty Vad
[11:27] {ese} signing off until a bit later...cya
[11:27] {Threei} welcome
[11:27] {Threei} that's what you did Billy?
[11:27] {BillyD} yes Vad, meltdown
[11:27] {Threei} yep, same here
[11:27] {Threei} got probably last shares at 17, lol
[11:28] {BillyD} had order for .98 just in case
[11:28] {Threei} OK, you need to stop this
[11:28] {Threei} reading my mind
[11:28] {Threei} 1:2
[11:29] {BillyD} it hit .90 so fast. I ended up sellin most when I originally thought to partial
[11:29] {BillyD} fast money spikes causes me to take it too quick sometimes
[11:30] {Threei} yes
[11:36] {BillyD} RIMM may be setting up for BDN
[11:38] {Threei} looks like mirroring the market almost exactly
[11:38] {BillyD} it does
[11:40] {bkhmd} did anyone fill @18.11 on symc?
[11:41] {bkhmd} earlier?
[11:43] {fernp} .12 here
[11:43] {ilana} the same here
[11:43] {ilana} sold @ .06
[11:44] {bkhmd} were they limit orders or market orders?
[11:46] {fernp} limit
[11:46] {Threei} guess who is on TV
[11:47] {fernp} norton
[11:47] {nemo} Scarlett Johannson
[11:47] {bkhmd} melissa lee
[11:47] {bkhmd} ?
[11:47] {strider} Donna the Buffalo
[11:47] {nemo} fern?
[11:47] {nemo} Captain Kangaroo
[11:49] {fernp} SYMC is the company who makes norton antivirus
[11:49] {strider} CIEN
[11:51] {bkhmd} SOS
[11:51] {bkhmd} I missed two winning orders
[11:52] {bkhmd} The call for SYMC was break of .10 I put the limit order in for 1000 shares at .11
[11:53] {bkhmd} didnt fill
[11:53] {bkhmd} broker says there were only 2 trades of 100 shares at that price
[11:54] {bkhmd} then again short RMBS break of 17 my order goes in at .98 sits and does not get filled broker again says only two prints at that price
[11:54] {BillyD} BK... .98 may be true
[11:55] {BillyD} only a couple buyers at that level
[11:55] {BillyD} on L2
[11:55] {bkhmd} Billy did u take the trade?
[11:55] {Threei} yeah, on RMBS I think they are right, bids got pulled very quickly
[11:55] {bkhmd} if so where did u fill?
[11:55] {BillyD} yes. 17 fill as it was melting down about halfway
[11:55] {bkhmd} k
[11:55] {bkhmd} plenty of shares at 17
[11:56] {Threei} at 17 was scrolling and breakdown became obvious, bidders just ran away
[11:56] {Threei} at = as
[11:56] {BillyD} yeah Vad, all 3 of them lol
[11:57] {Threei} hehe
[11:57] {Threei} actually more,
[11:57] {bkhmd} but if folks in the room filled at .99 or .98 then i should have filled?
[11:57] {BillyD} reason I like shorts like that
[11:57] {Threei} they pulled everything down to 16.90
[11:58] {BillyD} I doubt may AT ALL got filled at .98-.99 BK
[11:58] {BillyD} many
[11:58] {bkhmd} I understand ur concern with Trade Station.. however if people in the room filled at .99 or .98 I am yelling at my broker on phone why wouldnt have i filled
[11:58] {Threei} probably not on this one
[11:58] {BillyD} right
[11:58] {bkhmd} ok
[11:58] {Threei} but you are wasting your breath yelling at them
[11:59] {fernp} Billy, I think room missed RMBS except Vad and Billiy
[11:59] {fernp} bk
[11:59] {Threei} front end people can't make the system work faster
[11:59] {bkhmd} thanks fern
[11:59] {BillyD} BK, some you will miss and there is nothing you can do buyt just accept it and move on to the next trade
[11:59] {bkhmd} yes I am aware of missing
[11:59] {BillyD} agree Fern
[11:59] {bkhmd} but its too frequent
[11:59] {Threei} it's simply a slower brokerage
[12:00] {Threei} yell all you want, it won't get any faster
[12:00] {bkhmd} ok one more hiccup and im out
[12:00] {ilana} i filled RMBC at 17.01
[12:00] {Threei} then you hit it before actual breakdown
[12:00] {BillyD} wow
[12:00] {ilana} there were plenty
[12:00] {ilana} yup aware
[12:00] {nemo} rimm at r1 after breakdown, could be another bd from .55
[12:01] {bkhmd} ilana was that a market order?

[12:52] {Threei} jerky jumps up and down
[12:52] {Threei} make it pretty much a guesswork
[12:53] {BillyD} these momos aren't giving us clear entries :(
[12:56] {strider} SEED pushing for hod again
[12:56] {fernp} KEY seems to be strong
[12:57] {fernp} and 6 break could be interesting
[13:01] {Threei} push for 10 is coming SEED
[13:02] {Threei} *TREASURY'S $44B 2-YEAR NOTE AUCTION DRAWS 0.802%; BID-TO-COVER RATIO 3.16 V 3.63 PRIOR AND 2.92 AVE OVER LAST 10 AUCTIONS
[13:02] {Threei} - indirect bidders take 44.5% of competitive bids with 95.8% alotted at the high
[13:02] {nemo} omg...what a setup at 9.10
[13:04] {Threei} magoo, where are you
[13:05] {nemo} combo momo technical..can't ask for more
[13:05] {Threei} 10
[13:07] {nemo} wathing for bear flag break on rimm
[13:08] {Threei} .14 short?
[13:08] {nemo} yeah or aggressive here
[13:08] {nemo} although lunch and aggressive....eh?
[13:09] {Threei} well, it could be better idea than regular entry counting on follow through
[13:10] {larisa} well, i am regular :) I see it as long from here, scalp only though
[13:10] {nemo} break of .30 would be long
[13:10] {nemo} no?
[13:10] {BillyD} well, I don't know
[13:10] {nemo} neither do we
[13:10] {larisa} lol
[13:10] {Threei} .30... nah
[13:11] {Threei} I'd rather went for somwething here, long or short,
[13:11] {ilana} NUVA b/d?
[13:11] {Threei} and aimed to get out into spike to .30 or drop to .10, lol
[13:11] {larisa} right :)
[13:11] {nemo} definite maybe
[13:11] {Threei} NUVA, no, not here
[13:11] {Threei} this thing can be very volatile
[13:12] {Threei} and it's pretty much random right now
[13:12] {Threei} just not worth the risk
[13:12] {nemo} rmbs froming long break chart
[13:12] {fernp} ACI 22 breakdown, Vad?
[13:13] {Threei} dropped too sharply into it from .10 break
[13:13] {Threei} .10 was much better entry
[13:13] {Threei} see if it consolidates again
[13:13] {fernp} ok. ty
[13:14] {Threei} if it breaks on the go, just skip it
[13:14] {Threei} can turn into trap easily
[13:15] {Threei} but if makes a moves up and down not going over .10 and better yet .05, then 22 break will be a nice setup
[13:15] {Threei} makes a few moves
[13:16] {Threei} looks much better now
[13:17] {fernp} yeah
[13:17] {Threei} couple min of tight consolidation
[13:19] {larisa} this is boring, can i go back to the beach?
[13:19] {Threei} no
[13:19] {Threei} stay and suffer
[13:19] {Les} beaches in canada?
[13:20] {larisa} end of November, Canada? No :)
[13:20] {Threei} shapes up finally
[13:20] {Les} what temperatures in summer where you live vad?
[13:20] {Threei} if not going over .05 now, will be a good short setup
[13:21] {Les} 22 break?
[13:21] {Threei} about 25C
[13:21] {Threei} yes
[13:25] {Les} big buying at 22.
[13:27] {BillyD} Vad, looking for .25 on ACI short?
[13:28] {BillyD} fprget it
[13:28] {BillyD} forget
[13:28] {fernp} stop above 22.10 or 22.06?
[13:28] {Threei} .06
[13:31] {strider} y;all got any charts..nothing here
[13:32] {Threei} hmm?
[13:32] {strider} crap...I lost everything for about 2 min.
[13:32] {fernp} whats happen?
[13:32] {strider} back now.
[13:32] {strider} had two open.
[13:34] {strider} anyone in ACI?
[13:34] {fernp} me
[13:34] {BillyD} yes
[13:34] {Les} y
[13:34] {strider} now I feel better. :)
[13:35] {ilana} yes
[13:37] {Threei} Short Setup: HIG .40 break
[13:37] {ilana} what this volume spike means on ACI?
[13:38] {ilana} now i know...
[13:38] {Threei} nothing really
[13:38] {Threei} it moves with market at this point
[13:38] {ilana} buying came
[13:38] {Threei} see lille market spike?
[13:39] {Threei} Support for Health Care Plan Falls to New Low
[13:39] {strider} Something rather unnerving.......Got disconnected from Laser....finally quotes & charts came back......then tried to exit a position, and nothing.
[13:39] {strider} I had to reconnect, even though I was getting quotes.
[13:39] {BillyD} that happens sometimes strider
[13:39] {Threei} it means you lost interenet connection,
[13:39] {nemo} yep...happened to me before
[13:40] {Threei} when it happens and quotes get resxtored - executor does not
06[13:40] * nemo slaps lasertrev around a bit with a large stable platform
[13:40] {strider} duh
[13:40] {strider} hah, nemo
[13:40] {Threei} quotes will get restored by themselves but for executor to get reconnected you need to do it manually
[13:40] {lasertrev} whats up?
[13:40] {strider} t'anks...
[13:41] {strider} Just lost connections a bit ago...
[13:41] {nemo} nothing, just routine abuse
[13:41] {fernp} lol
[13:41] {Threei} just wanted to say...
[13:41] {strider} when quotes came back, I thought all was well.
[13:41] {Threei} simply slap him back trev, it's nemo... he is not doing it for any other reason than he just loves slapping people
[13:41] {strider} Was still unconnected , as far as placing/exiting trades.
[13:42] {nemo} for some reason the "they didn't expect, the Spanish inquisition" line goes through my head
[13:42] {lasertrev} anything "executor" means a loss of connection between you and server
[13:43] {strider} I never saw executor screen until I manually reconnected.
[13:43] {lasertrev} trev slaps nemo silly with a frozen salmon
[13:43] {strider} Anyway, I'm holding you responsible...)
[13:43] {strider} :)
[13:43] {strider} It caused me to make an extra .05.
[13:43] {Threei} why wouldn't you
[13:44] {Threei} I for one am holding trev responsible for the amazin tainforest problems
[13:44] {Threei} amazon
[13:44] {Threei} rainforest
[13:44] {Threei} sheesh
[13:44] {strider} Actually, it was Amazon I was in.
[13:44] {Threei} lol
[13:44] {nemo} and global warming....ah...er....climate change
[13:44] {Threei} no, for that I blame Al Gore
[13:44] {lasertrev} lol, as long as your not turning of quote servers again
[13:44] {Threei} but the rest is Trev's fault
[13:45] {strider} ACI moves
[13:45] {nemo} poor trev, didn't know what he was getting into with Dave
[13:45] {lasertrev} :s
[13:45] {Threei} yeah Trev... did good ol' davie actually warn you this is an asylum?
[13:45] {Threei} ACI 1:1
[13:46] {Les} out ty
[13:46] {strider} HIG looking like reversal
[13:46] {fernp} ty
[13:46] {strider} whatcha think vad?
[13:46] {Threei} don't want to go long on it
[13:47] {Threei} to me it looks like take short is sets up, ignore if sets long
[13:47] {Threei} is = if
[13:48] {strider} out 1/2 ACI
[13:48] {fernp} gj
[13:48] {BillyD} thx ACI fern/Vad
[13:48] {Threei} 1:2
[13:52] {nemo} everything is trading by appointment
[13:52] {Threei} 1:3
[13:52] {Threei} what a nice little cutie
[13:52] {nemo} damn bad order execution on pru short
[13:52] {strider} out
[13:53] {fernp} are you still in, Vad?
[13:53] {Threei} no
[13:56] {BillyD} HIG invalidated right
[13:56] {Threei} yes
[13:56] {Threei} watchig for new consoliodation
[13:56] {Threei} although it seems it's the best play between limits
[13:57] {Threei} buying near .40 and shorting near .50 would have worked probably 3 times already, lol
[13:58] {strider} HIG would be a short?
[13:58] {Threei} ummm
[13:59] {Threei} you blacked olut strider? :)
[13:59] {strider} lost my discussion data when I rebooted. Looks long to me.
[13:59] {Threei} [13:46] {strider} whatcha think vad?
[13:59] {Threei} [13:46] {Threei} don't want to go long on it
[13:59] {Threei} [13:47] {Threei} to me it looks like take short is sets up, ignore if sets long
[13:59] {Threei} [13:47] {Threei} is = if
[14:00] {Threei} [13:56] {BillyD} HIG invalidated right
[14:00] {Threei} [13:56] {Threei} yes
[14:00] {Threei} [13:56] {Threei} watchig for new consoliodation
[14:00] {Threei} [13:56] {Threei} although it seems it's the best play between limits
[14:00] {Threei} [13:57] {Threei} buying near .40 and shorting near .50 would have worked probably 3 times already, lol
[14:00] {Threei} dino!
[14:00] {Threei} you OK?
[14:00] {strider} It's Trev's fault.
[14:00] {Threei} everything is
[14:00] {Threei} aside of global warming which is Al Gore's
[14:01] {Threei} ACI 1:4... sheesh
[14:01] {dino} yes, real estate this a.m.
[14:01] {BillyD} yeah, that break of .97 was an indicator but I didn't follow my plan to hold for more....next time
[14:01] {Threei} okay... there was a play about which magoo will howl like coyote when he sees it
[14:02] {strider} Vad, now you know why I have to be a scalper.....that's as long as I can remember.
[14:02] {dino} he's bear hunting
[14:02] {Threei} that's actually a bit too long for me strider
[14:02] {Threei} here are two criteria:
[14:02] {Threei} 1. fish, memory span is 21 seconds
[14:02] {nemo} alright...nobody asked me
[14:03] {nemo} 1/2 out pru short .91
[14:03] {Threei} can grab the same hook with the same worm on it 3 times a minytre, not remembering anything about last time
[14:03] {Threei} 2. moth, memory span is 6 seconds
[14:03] {nemo} tell the moth joke again Dino
[14:03] {Threei} gets burned by lamp, flies away, gets back 10 times a minute
[14:04] {nemo} yeah, and some of us get into relationships repeatedly
[14:04] {dino} what do you have if you have one moth ball here.................................and one moth ball here?
[14:04] {nemo} What Dino?
[14:04] {Threei} larisa... nothing changes eh?
[14:04] {dino} pretty big moth
[14:04] {strider} nemo, that's not memory problems...
[14:04] {Threei} you heard this joke before vacation
[14:04] {nemo} Bwahahahahahahaha
[14:04] {BillyD} is HIG still on now?
[14:04] {Threei} you hear it after
[14:05] {strider} hah
[14:05] {strider} are we gonna take this hig short.?
[14:05] {fernp} are we going to short HIG if breaks .40?
[14:05] {strider} fern:)
[14:05] {Threei} looks valid to me
[14:06] {strider} big stop?
[14:06] {Threei} keep and eye on FAS
[14:06] {fernp} .50 stop?
[14:06] {Threei} for hardcore scalpers .46
[14:06] {Threei} for sane traders .51
[14:07] {bkhmd} which trade HIG or Fas
[14:07] {Threei} HIG... FAS is leading indicator for it
[14:07] {nemo} look at cat just sitting for a fall
[14:11] {Les} 1st minute candle is all that stands between spy and gap fill
[14:11] {fernp} ty
[14:11] {Threei} HIG 1:1 for sane traders
[14:11] {Threei} pesky scalpers have 1:2
[14:12] {BillyD} lol
[14:13] {strider} out +.07
[14:14] {Threei} nice CAT
[14:15] {Threei} you are on the right wavelenght today nemo
[14:15] {nemo} 1/2 out .29
06[14:15] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large roll of cash
[14:15] {BillyD} gj nemo
[14:15] {nemo} playing small though
[14:15] {nemo} today feels strange
[14:15] {BillyD} that's because you are starnge
[14:15] {BillyD} strange to
06[14:15] * Threei shrugs slaps nemo around a bit with a small roll of cash
[14:16] {nemo} no credit for tht Billy, kindergarten stuff
[14:16] {BillyD} lol....
[14:16] {BillyD} I will sick Vad on you nemo
[14:16] {nemo} np
[14:17] {nemo} his slams are much better than yours..ppphhhhhhht!!!!
[14:17] {Threei} you will what me on him?
[14:17] {nemo} like sending a dog to bite somebody
[14:17] {BillyD} take care of him Vad
[14:17] {dino} gj nemo
[14:18] {BillyD} he is out of line again....hard to imagine I know
[14:18] {nemo} stop to .35
[14:18] {Threei} much easier than to imagine him being in line
[14:18] {BillyD} so true
[14:18] {strider} you mean...there's a line?
[14:18] {Threei} never knew sick had that meaning
[14:19] {BillyD} never heard someone say to theor dog: sick em
[14:19] {Threei} can you guys make it easiwer for us foreigners and have just one word for each meaning and one meaning for each word?
[14:19] {BillyD} not that you are a dog or anything
[14:19] {nemo} nah, English doesn't work that way
[14:19] {strider} vad, could you possibly have just one spelling for each word?
[14:19] {dino} lol
[14:19] {nemo} nice one strider
[14:19] {Threei} fair point strider
[14:19] {BillyD} Ok Vad, how is this:
[14:19] {Les} sick - sic isn't it?
[14:20] {nemo} see BIlly, that's good stuff
[14:20] {strider} I think so, Les
[14:20] {BillyD} smack nemo upside the head
[14:20] {nemo} I don't think speaking latin to a dog is a good idea Les
[14:20] {Threei} that I understand
[14:20] {Threei} appreciate
[14:20] {Threei} and like to do
[14:20] {strider} amzn h&s.....but, I dunno.
[14:21] {nemo} stop to 32
[14:21] {nemo} .32
[14:21] {strider} .32 ACP?
[14:21] {nemo} actuallly, kinda looks long now
[14:21] {nemo} out cat
[14:22] {nemo} oops
[14:23] {nemo} too small strider, unless you're right up against him
[14:23] {strider} agree.
[14:23] {nemo} try to find that stuff right now...sheeesh
[14:24] {strider} I know... better than a few months ago, though.
[14:24] {nemo} yeah they should sell vaseline with it now
[14:24] {strider} Vad, AMZN read?
[14:25] {Threei} .80 break short
[14:25] {Threei} no long
[14:25] {Threei} ideally if never goes over .90
[14:26] {strider} would you take it?
[14:26] {nemo} looks like it could be long over .90
[14:26] {Threei} unless I black out between now and trigger
[14:26] {nemo} no volume on this price rise
[14:26] {Threei} no
[14:26] {strider} never mind.
[14:26] {Threei} not going for long on it
[14:26] {strider} how that happens to you too.
[14:26] {strider} oh
[14:26] {nemo} now volume coming in
[14:29] {Threei} Market Internals update at 2:00pmET
[14:29] {Threei} - NYSE volume 545M shares, about 22% below its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 6.1:1.
[14:29] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 1.21B shares, about 17% below its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 2.7:1.
[14:29] {Threei} - VIX index -5% to just over 21.00
[14:31] {Les} WFC
[14:33] {nemo} text book pullback off bottom of fcx
[14:34] {nemo} hit swing price high at 85.12, volume dried up on pullback and then increased on price rise
[14:34] {larisa} you mean at 14:23 14:24 ?
[14:35] {nemo} yes ma'am
[14:35] {larisa} one of my fav setups
[14:35] {Threei} sheesh... I couldn't understand which side on V nemo was talking about
[14:35] {Threei} larisa, you better be careful... understanding nemo's train of thought is not a sign of a good mental health, ya know
[14:36] {nemo} being in this room isn't either
[14:36] {Threei} true
[14:36] {Threei} but then again, mental health is not a strick requirement for being profitable
[14:37] {Threei} of which we are living proof
[14:37] {nemo} also true
[14:37] {larisa} this one fits my system perfectly, but i am not looking at things nemo does, so i am safe :)
[14:38] {nemo} Not necessarily...we've never compared notes
[14:45] {Threei} speaking of that setup,
[14:46] {Threei} that's the way you hunt the bottom on hard selling ones in the most safe way
[14:46] {Threei} instead of trying to guess which leg is the last
[14:46] {Threei} and arbitrary buying every new low
[14:46] {nemo} another clue: it basically hit friday's close
[14:48] {larisa} and another clue: it started to uptrend first time since break of 87.
[14:48] {dino} nuva hl l .50
[14:48] {nemo} yeah, broke the downtrend
[14:51] {fernp} LOW if breaks 22...
[14:52] {nemo} long fern?
[14:53] {fernp} could be
[14:53] {fernp} daily looks nice
[14:54] {BillyD} RMBS hangs near low area, maybe short if breaks down
[14:54] {BillyD} slow pace on it right now
[14:56] {nemo} turtle market right now billy
[14:57] {dino} the turtle of amazing girth, upon his back he carries the earth
[14:57] {strider} : Cephalon shares defended at UBS-----I guess this means they're underwater on CEPH?
[15:01] {Threei} I guess
[15:01] {Threei} LOW high
[15:01] {fernp} if KEY breaks 6, could be a good swing trade
[15:02] {fernp} LOW also could be a good swing
[15:02] {fernp} and better intraday :-)
[15:03] {fernp} 22 break, Vad?
[15:03] {fernp} w/stop under .90?
[15:05] {strider} LOW atr: .55
[15:05] {Threei} yup
[15:06] {strider} CENT
[15:06] {strider} thin
[15:06] {nemo} dino stock
[15:09] {dino} hmm
[15:10] {strider} down grade on CENT, dino
[15:10] {dino} ty
[15:27] {Threei} SEED is not done still
[15:27] {Threei} wow
[15:28] {ilana} HIG short?
[15:28] {Threei} no clear setup here
[15:28] {Threei} oscialles bwteen .30 and .45
[15:28] {Threei} oscillates too
[15:30] {fernp} Not my day today. out LOW
[15:31] {Les} yeh, I was in LOW but the lack of volume above 22 told me it was no go. sold it as soon as it dropped.
[15:33] {Les} gonna get gap fill on spy?
[15:33] {nemo} that would be serious
[15:34] {Les} wfc is back to lows
[15:34] {Les} fas new low
[15:34] {dino} nuva stopped
[15:35] {nemo} 15:40 ppt
[15:36] {Threei} {PPT} huh?
[15:36] {nemo} Plunge Protection Team
[15:36] {Threei} sigh
[15:36] {Les} you expecting the cavalry to arrive?
[15:37] {Threei} way to get the meaning {G}
[15:37] {nemo} yeah...my paranoid delusion
[15:37] {nemo} I love the anarchy of plunges
[15:40] {strider} you shoulda been a plumber.
[15:40] {Threei} lol
[15:41] {dino} what a rinse nuva was
[15:42] {ilana} the maret was
[15:43] {strider} BRCD reporting after close
[15:44] {Threei} (US) President Obama: economy is growing again, only take first step to heal economy - post cabinet meeting reports
[15:44] {Threei} oh good
[15:45] {BillyD} maybe CAT short opp - eod though
[15:45] {Les} fas good to short?
[15:46] {Les} do you short etf's?
[15:46] {Threei} you see a valid setup on it?
[15:46] {strider} CEPH seems to have confirmed support at 54
[15:47] {Les} .75 trigger. hmmm. stop is a little too big...
[15:47] {Threei} .75?
[15:48] {Threei} how do you arrive at that as a short trigger?
[15:49] {Les} it was plunging towards 76.75, but again. no consolidation. no steady movement into trigger. jumps around like a jack rabbit. stupid idea.
[15:50] {Les} .75 would have made new low for fas
[15:50] {Threei} you hot it
[15:50] {Threei} price alone is not an indication
[15:51] {Threei} the way stock arrives at it is important
[15:51] {Threei} hot = got
[15:52] {larisa} got not hot
[15:52] {nemo} Sam I am
[15:52] {larisa} vad started it

[09:52] {Threei} and can be bought on pullback for a nice bounce
[09:52] {ese} yes....thats what i'm noticing
[09:52] {Threei} but buying breakout will put you in a long holding pattern
[09:52] {ese} it does hold really well against mkt
[09:52] {Threei} and can be quite unnerving

[10:38] {Threei} locking profit in so you play with house money now
[10:38] {Threei} not letting trade turn into loss or even flat

[10:39] {Threei} but what is booked should stays booked
[10:39] {bkhmd} .96 stop? would that not be - 2 on the remainer?
[10:39] {Threei} .95 was critical barrier

[10:55] {Les} lucky to find you then. still in my first year
[10:55] {Threei} I'd have to look it up mags... on top of memory I'd say 4-5
[10:55] {strider} then mags got his hypercloud memory module, and well, the rest is history.
[10:55] {magoo} wish i met the grumpy ole boy earlier
[10:55] {Threei} lol strider
06[10:56] * Threei changes nick to Grumpy Ole Boy
06[10:56] * Threei remembers than there is no country for grumpy old men and changes back
[10:56] {magoo} one thing vad should admit if he wants to be serious...i always had a "feel" or read on momo moves...my thing
[10:56] {Threei} oh yeah
[10:56] {Threei} you live for that
[10:57] {fernp} FAS breaking lod
[10:57] {dino} nuva
[10:57] {Threei} and getting better and better in two things
[10:57] {Threei} 1, recognizing momo
[10:57] {Les} yes, i asked you because you are aggressive on some stocks
[10:57] {Threei} 2. controlling risk when momo leaves
[10:57] {Les} I remember reading of mags when AIG was white hot earlier this year
[10:57] {Threei} watch NLST guys
[10:57] {Threei} momo recognition
[10:57] {Les} thinking wow, thats big cash being made
[10:58] {magoo} yea...but like 4 years ago even..vad will confirm..we used to nail momo like BOOM remember vad?
[10:58] {Threei} I need a tissue
[10:58] {BillyD} lol...
[10:58] {Les} sentimental old goy
[10:58] {Les} boy
[10:58] {nemo} what kind of tissue vad?
[10:59] {BillyD} almost a mutiny 1 hr ago and now everyone is happy
[10:59] {nemo} what mutiny...just pissin' and moanin'
[10:59] {dino} nuva
[10:59] {dino} bi-polar bd
[10:59] {Threei} lol... it's not a democracy here, no such things as mutiny
[10:59] {nemo} yeah, the beatings will continue until morale improves
[11:00] {Threei} just one lesson left for today
[11:00] {BillyD} Vad, I thought you were gonna be Capt Bly and make everyone walk the plank
[11:00] {nemo} and then, they'll continue some more
[11:00] {cosmo} hmm...animal house
[11:00] {Threei} or hang on the mast
[11:00] {nemo} Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor!
[11:00] {Threei} I am waiting with the lesson a bit,
[11:00] {dino} heck no
[11:00] {Threei} want you to observe NLST
[11:01] {dino} lol
[11:01] {nemo} lol
[11:01] {Les} what for. further momo?
[11:01] {Threei} it's displaying very typical momo behavior
[11:01] {Les} k
[11:01] {Threei} watch pace, watch how it acts on braks and pullbacks
[11:01] {Threei} compare pace
[11:01] {Threei} see when the breaks act as trap,
[11:01] {Threei} when they are real,
[11:02] {dino} nuva hl l .50
[11:02] {Les} is typical of falling stock as well? or completely different sort of momo?
[11:02] {dino} stop lod break
[11:02] {Threei} when opullbacks are for enter and when they are hopeless, just little bounce and drift lower
[11:02] {Threei} it's very hard to put in any set of rules,
[11:02] {Threei} you need to watch it and get a feel for it
[11:02] {Threei} no Les, that's different thing
[11:03] {Threei} capitualtory selling is governed by different kind of emptions
[11:03] {Les} k
[11:03] {cosmo} ultimately, she be a heart breaker
[11:03] {Threei} they are just as scorching hot, but they are different
[11:03] {nemo} rimm (ow) again vad
[11:03] {Threei} aren't they all cos
[11:03] {cosmo} for some time now ...yea
[11:04] {dino} men lose lots of money chasing women, but rarely do they lose women chasing money
[11:04] {Threei} .30 resistance
[11:04] {Threei} watch how it acts aaround it
[11:04] {Threei} good one dino
[11:06] {magoo} when money goes out the window (ie trading losses)...women go out the door
[11:06] {dino} nuva stopped -.30
[11:06] {Threei} but the opposite is just as true
[11:06] {dino} try again lower
[11:07] {nemo} nothing more important to a relationship than money
[11:07] {Threei} when women come in the door, money goes out the window
[11:07] {fernp} lol
[11:07] {dino} w/o it lots of trouble
[11:07] {cosmo} follow the money
[11:07] {nemo} We'd still be in The Garen of Eden if it weren't for them
[11:07] {strider} I hate NUVA
[11:07] {magoo} well vad..but for me just a lil tweak...when $$ is coming in...i like to KICK my current women out the door
[11:07] {Threei} then I am thankful to them
[11:07] {dino} oh man, rinsed big time
[11:07] {strider} damn rinse-o-matic
[11:07] {Threei} that garden wsas horrifyingly boring
[11:07] {nemo} Bible leaves out the part where Eve threatened to shut off Adam if he didn't eat the apple
[11:08] {nemo} Oh, yeah, boring, eat, sleep, sex...boring
[11:08] {dino} roflol
[11:08] {Threei} what can I do nemo... I am a hunter
[11:08] {nemo} makes two of us
[11:08] {dino} how did that get us strider
[11:08] {Threei} I need to get mine in a chase
[11:08] {magoo} me hunter
[11:08] {cosmo} some say snakes used to be our friends
[11:09] {Threei} not to be given it
[11:09] {strider} dunno
[11:09] {cosmo} but ...no matter
[11:09] {Threei} I ejoy the process of getting the prize more than consuming it
[11:09] {strider} very suspicious looking, though
[11:09] {dino} wolf is always at the door
[11:11] {Threei} Les, looking back at remark about RIMM risk becoming unacceptably high near 59.50
[11:11] {Threei} see what it did since then?
[11:11] {Les} y
[11:11] {Threei} hard shakeouts,
[11:11] {Threei} bounces,
[11:11] {Threei} but nothing even close to another break and run
[11:11] {strider} PCS c&h
[11:12] {nemo} op ex friday afternoon
[11:12] {Les} non of that is conspiracy though is it
[11:12] {strider} I'm in small at .36
[11:12] {Les} just locking in profits etc etc
[11:12] {Threei} NLST nears critical level again
[11:12] {Threei} third time
[11:12] {Threei} of course no Les
[11:12] {Threei} simple trading
[11:13] {nemo} WMT almost back to yesterday entry
[11:13] {Threei} 99% of conspiracies are meaningless bs
[11:13] {nemo} It helps those of us with paranoid delusions cope
[11:13] {Threei} give a read to
[11:13] {Threei} http://www.realitytrader.com/blog/2009/08/manipulation-myth-and-reality.html
[11:14] {nemo} yeah, but you're on retainer to Goldman Sachs :)
[11:14] {Threei} most of "manipulation" cries is nothing but cop out of self-responsibility for the result of your own desicions
[11:14] {Threei} of course I am
[11:15] {Threei} Goldman Sachs is very concerned about opinion of two dozens day traders
[11:15] {nemo} nlst
[11:15] {nemo} well there's only one Darth Vad
[11:16] {nemo} mags you in again?
[11:16] {Threei} one of old patterns works for NLST here
[11:16] {BillyD} it show a change
[11:16] {Threei} sewcond test of the high is more often a failure,
[11:16] {Threei} third is more often success
[11:21] {strider} reboot
[11:23] {cosmo} nlst wont die ...until it spawns
[11:23] {Threei} I believe 8 will be hit
[11:23] {nemo} any news on pru?

[11:34] {Threei} NLST more or less calmed down for now
[11:34] {Threei} so, let' me nudge you in the direction I wanted you to think about
[11:34] {nemo} wfc break of .80? stop uner .75
[11:34] {BillyD} Vad, any read on WMT
[11:35] {BillyD} doesn't seem done selling yet

[11:36] {nemo} animal fetishes?
[11:36] {Threei} being a teenager, you probably heard from parents or teachers
[11:36] {Threei} "watch your mouth"
[11:36] {Threei} well, it does apply to trading
[11:36] {Threei} as far as mindset goes
[11:36] {nemo} sheep an wolves
[11:37] {Threei} all these negative comments you make, out loud or for yourself,
[11:37] {ese} well whats happening........dropped my son off at school
[11:37] {Threei} they form your mindset
[11:37] {Threei} tell yourself 10 times how RIMM is not working, how you always lose on it, how you hate it
[11:37] {Threei} then that one rifht setup comes,
[11:37] {Threei} and you are left in dust
[11:37] {Threei} because ou cnvinced yourself that you should ignore it
[11:38] {magoo} NLST guys...beware..it could be done
[11:38] {magoo} ill post when i like it
[11:38] {Les} thanks
[11:38] {magoo} widowmaker remember
[11:38] {magoo} was 3 bux a week ago if i recall
[11:39] {Threei} 1
[11:39] {Les} i keep tabs on traders tweets elsewhere. all out on nlst
[11:39] {nemo} pru short, break of .75, stop .90?
[11:39] {nemo} invalidate .90 too?
[11:40] {Threei} I'd prefer aggressive entry on it
[11:40] {Threei} no breakdown worked on PRU today
[11:40] {Les} egle pushing for new high
[11:42] {Les} cat dropping hard. monthly charts suggests support around 57?
[11:43] {fernp} WMT almost hit 55 this morning and now is trading at 54. I don't know how swing traders make money
[11:43] {Threei} who says they do
[11:43] {fernp} :-)
[11:44] {Les} egle long with .90 trigger?
[11:44] {Threei} les, this is not the kind of support that is huaranteed to provide any guidance
[11:44] {Threei} why 5.90?
[11:44] {Les} ok. so breaking previous high for the day doesnt guarantee anything?
[11:45] {Threei} what are you talking about? my first comment was on CAT
[11:45] {Threei} second on EGLE
[11:45] {Threei} how do you combine them in one question?
[11:45] {Les} :P
[11:46] {Les} ok. so 57 is not "bounce" territory?
[11:46] {Threei} by itself, no
[11:46] {BillyD} back to CAT then
[11:46] {Threei} if right setup is forming and market helps, yes
[11:46] {strider} DDS salmon

[12:01] {Threei} news cycle is completely overtaken by Oprah quitting
[12:02] {Threei} never mind health care debate, economyh voes, unemployemtn
[12:02] {Les} for one person to have that much pull in a society...
[12:03] {Threei} she quits in TWO years
[12:03] {Threei} yet fokr the second day it's all TV talks about
[12:04] {Threei} there is such sense of urgency in discussing evcerything related, I start thinking.. may be during these two remaining hyears I need to watch a single show of hers?
[12:04] {Les} nah, she is going to do her own show on her own cable company
[12:05] {Les} after she quits nbc or whoever it is
[12:05] {Les} dell short?
[12:05] {Les} volume stinks
[12:05] {Threei} charts are in conflict
[12:06] {Threei} intraday is short, daily is not
[12:06] {Les} ouch thats a nasty drop on daily
[12:07] {Les} nlst holding firm into lunch
[12:08] {Threei} NLST actually formed little setup hr3
[12:08] {Threei} .50 break if holding .40

[12:17] {fernp} lol
[12:19] {fernp} fell = feel
[12:22] {Threei} 42% Rate Geithners Performance As Poor
[12:22] {Threei} Twenty percent (20%) rate Geithners performance in these areas as good or excellent.
[12:23] {Threei} ok, starting tally of idiots again
[12:23] {Threei} 20% so far
[12:24] {Les} the federal government employs about 20% of the pop., don't they?
[12:25] {Les} or all state and local authorities combined...
[12:25] {Threei} interesting coincidence if so
[12:30] {magoo} [11:27] {magoo} prob breathe at 7.90 area
[12:30] {magoo} [11:27] {magoo} could be top thee
[12:30] {magoo} [11:27] {magoo} or if takes 8 can go 8.20
[12:30] {magoo} [11:28] {magoo} breahe, the .70
[12:41] {dino} .
[12:42] {nemo} mon
[12:42] {nemo} sorry
[12:44] {fernp} HIG double bottom?
[12:48] {Threei} nah
[12:48] {nemo} If I recollect correctly...Op Ex Friday afternoons are corpse-like
[12:49] {nemo} I'd say limp as a dead fish, but that hits too close to home
[12:54] {nemo} mon increasing volume on this rise, might be .25 break would be stop .15
[12:55] {bkhmd} .
[13:00] {magoo} AWIAV?
[13:01] {Threei} c
[13:02] {Threei} HIG, .75 break looks like valid short trigger
[13:04] {nemo} or .78 break long?
[13:04] {nemo} speak of the devil
[13:04] {BillyD} why nemo long
[13:04] {nemo} DB
[13:05] {nemo} lower volume spike on 2nd bottom
[13:05] {BillyD} resistance up to .83 and no support below .75
[13:05] {nemo} you ever watch dino trade?
[13:06] {BillyD} not really followed
[13:06] {nemo} does a lot of these
[13:06] {BillyD} his entry style
[13:06] {BillyD} different ways to skin a cat
[13:06] {nemo} yep
[13:07] {nemo} now if volume increases w/price here, could be strong move
[13:07] {magoo} crap NLST
[13:08] {dino} you mean quarter breaks?
[13:08] {nemo} huh? don't know what you call them, but you catch turns regularly
[13:09] {dino} lucky sometimes
[13:09] {nemo} Yeah, it only takes the fingers and toes of a combat battalion to count the number of times you've been lucky
[13:10] {dino} i'm wrong alot too
[13:10] {nemo} Billy, if hig holds support here and breaks .82, whaddya' think?
[13:11] {BillyD} I don't like it long beccause I would prefer the clean breakdown with no resistance
[13:12] {nemo} what about if volume were to increase along with price?
[13:12] {dino} i'll tell you where i'm screwing up lately, not booking scalps because i want more. like hitting my head against the wall
[13:12] {nemo} yeah dino, scalps have been winning predominantly, with just enough runners to pull out your fingernails
[13:12] {dino} current examples ne and crmt
[13:13] {BillyD} key is nemo if volume will continue, needs mkt help and foloow thru
[13:13] {dino} you said it nemo
[13:13] {BillyD} break of low of day sparks a little more panic and people sell
[13:13] {dino} tempted to say f it and turn to total scalp mode for month
[13:13] {nemo} right there on that one BIlly
[13:14] {nemo} I mean I'm right there with you on that one
[13:14] {BillyD} we'll see what happens :)
[13:14] {dino} ok vad, close guess dji, +.66
[13:14] {nemo} You watch, I can't look...

[13:16] {dino} cute movie
[13:17] {nemo} what movie?
[13:17] {dino} definitely maybe

[13:18] {nemo} DE vad?
[13:18] {Threei} .25 is valid long chart wise
[13:18] {Threei} market overall at this point in time, I don't know
[13:19] {nemo} yeah, back and forth

[13:31] {Les} damn MA good for .10.
[13:31] {dino} vad what say you on the dji close?
[13:31] {strider} QUIZ: Who spoke this line, and in what movie?
[13:32] {strider} "Is cod in fresh season?"
[13:32] {Threei} -35 dino
[13:32] {strider} hint: was a language barrier.
[13:32] {dino} +66
[13:32] {Threei} beer?
[13:33] {strider} is that your answer?
[13:33] {Threei} I am -1 on beer, gotta get even
[13:33] {fernp} stopped HIG
[13:36] {dino} ok
[13:41] {Les} ascending triangle forming on nlst
[13:41] {Les} .85 break?
[13:42] {Threei} Les
[13:42] {Threei} NLST is momo
[13:42] {Threei} momos rarely obey technicals
[13:42] {Threei} razre cases when they do I call
[13:42] {Threei} like that .50 break
[13:42] {Les} k
[13:43] {Les} so you won't bite?
[13:43] {Threei} bite as in trade it or call it?
[13:43] {Threei} call - no
[13:43] {Threei} I do not make calls on momos other than define them as such
[13:43] {Threei} or in one of those rare cases
[13:44] {Threei} when they provide relatively low risk high odds opportunity
[13:48] {strider} AMZN hod
[13:48] {Threei} attack on 8 is imminent
[13:49] {strider} futs
[14:00] {Les} fas b/d?
[14:01] {Les} descending triangle.
[14:01] {Threei} not my kind of setup
[14:01] {Threei} sharp spike, pullback on decereasing volume
[14:01] {Threei} typical bull flag
[14:02] {dino} what to do what to do
[14:04] {Threei} see it now Les?
[14:05] {strider} market closed next friday, or just thursday}?
[14:05] {dino} just thursday
[14:05] {nemo} thurs
[14:05] {Threei} but you can imagine what kind of trading we get on Friday
[14:05] {dino} not allowed to be closed more than 3 days in row
[14:05] {Les} yeh. didn't think of bull flag
[14:06] {strider} something like this afternoon?
[14:06] {Threei} don't look at the last "piece" of chart in isolaion
[14:06] {Threei} view bigger pictuire
[14:06] {Threei} then you'll have better idea of how this piece plays in overall situation
[14:06] {Threei} everything is part of mosaic
[14:07] {dino} out ne +.27, out crmt +.25, out ctrp +.49
[14:08] {BillyD} gj dino
[14:08] {dino} ty, tired of watching them drop bacl to entries
[14:09] {BillyD} sometimes prudence is best
[14:09] {nemo} Dear Prudence
[14:10] {dino} lol
[14:10] {Les} b/o coming in MON?
[14:11] {strider} Patience is good also.
[14:11] {nemo} there's a setup
[14:11] {Les} .95 trigger?
[14:12] {nemo} would be break, yeah, but had a helluva up move
[14:12] {Threei} could be...
[14:12] {Threei} MON has a chance
[14:12] {fernp} fourth week ending in positive. Thank you vad, I was not used to it. ty again
[14:12] {fernp} gotta go. have a nice weekend everybody. see you all on monday
[14:12] {nemo} invalidated under 80
[14:12] {Threei} fern...
[14:12] {Threei} helluva result for someone who hates so many stocks :)
[14:13] {Les} ciao
[14:13] {Threei} glad to hear, have a great weekend
[14:13] {fernp} lol. you too
[14:13] {nemo} spy might be topping out
[14:13] {dino} of course, now ne continues
[14:13] {dino} ctrp too
[14:14] {dino} cya fern
[14:14] {magoo} nice fern
[14:14] {strider} fern:)
[14:15] {nemo} mon invalidated
[14:15] {Threei} yup
[14:16] {Threei} good job by fern, amazing consistency
[14:16] {Les} would it have been appropriate to fade? tried to but was late to party.
[14:16] {Threei} he is a scalper mostly, and last month was a scalper's market
[14:17] {nemo} got delining volume on cat vs increasing price action
[14:18] {strider} short amzn .76, stop hod
[14:20] {ilana} your favorite GLD - .60 breakdown?
[14:20] {nemo} i hate gld :)
[14:21] {Threei} not sure about it here
[14:21] {Threei} pretty random
[14:21] {nemo} I'm not seeing stocks match the pullback in the indexes
[14:24] {patience} it took me 3 hours, 20 minutes to scalp .30 on yamana gold.....not a quickie
06[14:25] * Threei makes a mental note: do not turn to AUY for a quickie
[14:29] {Les} MA wants to go up
[14:30] {BillyD} something about NLST chart at .75 w/ large offer looks appealing
[14:31] {strider} out amzn -.03
[14:36] {Threei} RIMM...
[14:36] {Threei} wstching if consolidates better near 60
[14:36] {nemo} the volume spike?
[14:41] {magoo} only prob is buying the high
[14:41] {Threei} if NASDAQ spikes again from here, .60o will be a valid trigger
[14:41] {Threei} if holding above .90 meanwhile
[14:43] {Threei} watch it here
[14:43] {Threei} if markert reverses from here, .90 becomes trigger for bounce
[14:43] {BillyD} bull flag
[14:44] {Les} wfmi
[14:47] {BillyD} you in vad
[14:47] {strider} in .91
[14:47] {Threei} no
[14:47] {Threei} feels too random and market doesn't show any support
[14:47] {strider} I did it on FAS spike
[14:47] {BillyD} ok
[14:48] {Threei} FAS is not really a lead for RIMM
[14:51] {dino} bd, nemo, see my issues, ne, crmt, ctrp all could have been double. driving me nuts
[14:51] {strider} out .83
[14:51] {BillyD} dino, do you partial?
[14:52] {strider} Vad, when you say to follow the market, what are you looking at? Does an uptick on 1min. count?
[14:52] {Threei} if it's in a chart context, sure
[14:52] {nemo} wow, ctrp
[14:52] {Threei} overall, directional support
[14:52] {strider} ?
[14:52] {Threei} simple things like:
[14:53] {Threei} do you want to buy a breakout while market downticks sharply?
[14:53] {strider} but it
[14:53] {Threei} or if hunting for bounce,
[14:53] {dino} no bd,
[14:53] {strider} it's the 'market downticks" that I'm asking about.
[14:53] {Threei} if your stock stabilized
[14:53] {strider} what is it for the market to downtick.
[14:53] {nemo} what's bd
[14:54] {Threei} hmm?
[14:54] {dino} billyd
[14:54] {Threei} sorry, you lost me
[14:54] {BillyD} that would be me nemo
[14:54] {nemo} got it
[14:54] {nemo} was looking for stock
[14:54] {BillyD} lol
[14:54] {strider} you say "while market downticks". I'm trying to understand what that means.
[14:54] {Les} ctrp about to b/d?
[14:54] {nemo} moving down strider
[14:55] {Threei} dcownticks is dowticks
[14:55] {Threei} prints lower
[14:55] {Threei} bids drop, asks follow
[14:55] {Les} stupid question after such gains...
[14:55] {strider} so you're watcching T&S, rather than chart?
[14:55] {strider} or both.
[14:55] {Threei} market was till dropping while RIMM touched .90 and broke it by a cent or two
[14:55] {nemo} look at indexes les...kinda going with them ato the moment
[14:56] {Threei} chart is one min, sometimes it's not enough for fast play like this
[14:56] {Threei} T&S runs next to chart
[14:56] {strider} right
[14:56] {dino} and t&a is afterhours (couldn't resist)
[14:57] {nemo} Frickin friday funfest
[14:57] {strider} so, if RIMM had touched .90, at the same time as a futs uptick, you would have bought?
[14:57] {strider} or broke .90
[14:58] {Threei} probably
[14:58] {Threei} hard to answer hypotetical
[14:58] {Threei} depends on chart formation at tghe moment,
[14:58] {Threei} depends on how far from .90 it bottomed,
[14:58] {BillyD} it comes down to feel with all the indicators Strider
[14:59] {Threei} how it came back, sharply or slowly climbing
[15:01] {strider} I'm just trying to understand what you're making your decisions on when you say: if holding above .90 meanwhile
[15:01] {strider} [14:43] {&Threei} watch it here
[15:01] {strider} [14:43] {&Threei} if markert reverses from here, .90 becomes trigger for bounce
[15:02] {Threei} those are two different comments
[15:02] {Threei} first was for 60 break if holding above .90
[15:02] {strider} sorry...grabbed too much.
[15:02] {Threei} when it got invalidated, it turned into bounce setup instead of break setup
[15:03] {strider} right
[15:04] {strider} so the question is about: "if market reverses from here." I'm trying to understand how you make that decision.
[15:05] {strider} An uptick doesn't seem like a market reversal.
[15:06] {Threei} not without context
[15:06] {Threei} look at it this way
[15:07] {Threei} market consolidates under the breakout level, then upticks above it
[15:07] {Threei} another case:
[15:07] {Threei} market drops sharply, then makes one uptick
[15:07] {Threei} are those uopticks the same or different in their respective contexts?
[15:08] {strider} They're very different.
[15:08] {Threei} right
[15:08] {Threei} in first case it's meaningful
[15:08] {Threei} in second, it's very likely to be "accidenatl"
[15:08] {Threei} non- event in a sense of defining the direction
[15:08] {Threei} now, third case
[15:09] {Threei} market drops sharply,
[15:09] {Threei} makes a few upticks
[15:09] {Threei} drops again, hold support of previous drop
[15:09] {Threei} and stat upticking again
[15:09] {Threei} is there significance to it?
[15:09] {strider} Yes
[15:09] {strider} holding support
[15:09] {Threei} right, double bottom is likely forming
[15:10] {Threei} so, you have a context now to that comment
[15:10] {strider} Maybe one mistake I've been making is using line charts for futs indicators.
[15:10] {Threei} if I say market reversing
[15:10] {Threei} and one uptick reversal makes not
[15:10] {strider} right
[15:10] {Threei} ... :)
[15:10] {Threei} I prefer bar charts
[15:10] {Threei} cnadles
[15:10] {Threei} candles
[15:11] {Threei} not line
[15:11] {strider} yeah. Easier to see patterns. Used to looking at them.
[15:12] {strider} Is the QQQQ as good as Naz futs for leading indicator? Or not quite as good?
[15:12] {Threei} nah, same thing
[15:12] {strider} And DIA and SPY}
[15:12] {strider} ?
[15:12] {Threei} yes, just for diff markets
[15:13] {strider} OK. THanks. I've been hampering myself by not seeing ordinary chart patterns in the QQQQ--because I was using line chart for it.
[15:13] {BillyD} nlst selling
[15:14] {strider} Was just seeing general directional trends.
[15:17] {BillyD} dino, NE got enough for play if crosses .50
[15:18] {dino} looks so
[15:19] {Les} aig dropping
[15:21] {nemo} wanna' big C&H vad....tck
[15:21] {dino} rally monkey
06[15:21] * nemo slaps dino around a bit with a large monkey
[15:22] {Les} hgsi consolidating?
[15:23] {Threei} I like overall look of TCK
[15:23] {dino} lol
[15:23] {Threei} not HGSI
[15:24] {BillyD} AIG didn't participate with the mkt spike , may be short off 35
[15:24] {dino} crmt trying to break up
[15:24] {dino} dish has been odd, drops wed 2+ and sits in 35 cent range for two days
[15:25] {dino} nuva hl l .00
[15:27] {nemo} alota order at 34
[15:30] {Les} tck trigger?
[15:31] {Threei} you believe in breakout and run here?
[15:31] {dino} ok 3i 60 pts up for me or 30 down for you
[15:31] {Threei} then this is your trigger, right here
[15:32] {nemo} I think the ppt wants it positive
[15:32] {Threei} sigh
[15:34] {strider} AIG continues to look weak, Billy
[15:35] {Les} someone likes MA
[15:35] {dino} crmt hl l .00
[15:36] {bkhmd} have a good weekend all
[15:36] {bkhmd} thanks VAD for today

[15:36] {dino} cya bk
[15:37] {Threei} take care bkh
[15:37] {dino} bk=black knight i guess
[15:37] {BillyD} I wanted it to stay under .10 Strider, my preference though
[15:38] {dino} nuva to .24
[15:39] {dino} out +.24
[15:40] {dino} ctrp hl l .00 trig
[15:42] {dino} wall of china at .00
[15:42] {nemo} ba da bum

[15:43] {nemo} wall of china, chinese travel company...sheesh
[15:43] {dino} giddyup
[15:43] {dino} lol didn't think of that
[15:43] {Threei} TCK if you went for it feel free to take profit here
[15:43] {Threei} likely to pullback now
[15:44] {dino} these .25 mutliple triggers are not what they used to be
[15:45] {nemo} you mean break of .25 .50 .75, etc?
[15:46] {dino} and .00 yes, they used to be pretty reliable
[15:47] {dino} now they are about as useful as humpty dumpty
[15:48] {nemo} yeah, easy targets for algo programs
[15:48] {dino} stopped -.10
[15:48] {Threei} TCK quite obeying
[15:49] {Threei} or obedient
[15:49] {Threei} or whatever
[15:49] {dino} you short it?
[15:49] {Les} thought of fading, but noted you said "Likely" to pull back, not surely. don't know when pullbacks can be faded...
[15:50] {dino} rinsed again
[15:50] {Threei} no dino, alerted earlier about closing long around .74
[15:50] {dino} yes, saw that
[15:52] {dino} ugh ctrp
[15:52] {BillyD} CTRP too spikey for tight stops
[15:52] {dino} decides to go against market all sudden
[15:52] {strider} don't care what vad says, there's a 'they' out there doing that stuff, dino.
[15:52] {BillyD} yeah and not with it earlier
[15:53] {Threei} and even if you are paranoid, it doesn't mean they are not watching you
[15:53] {strider} damnm right.

Nov 19 2009

Uneven start for the day - somethings worked, some didn't... and then along came WMT with nice breakout that gave us almost 50 cents. That made a day worth living - as far as trading goes.

Session Time: Thu Nov 19 00:00:00 2009

[10:19] {nemo} .30 key support for HIG
[10:19] {fernp} HIG .40 break w/stop under .30 is the play, no?

[10:20] {dino} nemo 5+ hours left, relax

[10:29] {Threei} this is one scary headline on CNN:

[10:31] {Threei} - VIX index +10.5% to just under 24.00
[10:31] {Threei} this may kill the market if taken seriously:

[10:32] {Threei} careful with longs huys
[10:33] {Threei} let's trail HIG to under .35
[10:33] {BillyD} my exact thought
[10:33] {Threei} I don't think many take this jawboning seriously
[10:34] {Threei} but if they do for a change, USAD will jump
[10:34] {Threei} and market will tank
[10:34] {dino} it's a fool me once thing 3i
[10:35] {Threei} well, with USD being sold down as it is, not much needed to prop the bounce
[10:36] {strider} fas spike
[10:36] {Threei} move your butt HIG
[10:36] {BillyD} 1:1 or partial Vad on HIG
[10:37] {Threei} I am tron about it

[10:39] {Threei} not in the last month
[10:39] {Threei} or couple weeks
[10:39] {Threei} and don't forget, first they got killed
[10:39] {dino} slxp? up on secondary?
[10:39] {Threei} how many buy and holders entered their buys in March?
[10:39] {magoo} true, probably not even yet
[10:40] {Threei} this is the only thing I see on it dino
[10:40] {magoo} l rimm .30 btw
[10:41] {Threei} this is main problem with buy and hold... it looks nice during upward phase, but works only if your timing concides with market scles - yet the mantra for buy-and-hold is, do not try to time the market
[10:42] {Les} i've got motley fool promising everything but a new car if i sign back up
[10:42] {Les} I think mum and dad investors get it
[10:42] {Les} about buy and hold

[10:53] {fernp} FITB double bottom, Vad?
[10:53] {Threei} not really
[10:55] {ilana} RIMM .40 break?
[10:56] {Threei} only if market starts gaining strength... which so far is not the case
[10:56] {Threei} and doesn't look probable nearest time
[10:59] {Threei} Short Setup: GLD .05
[10:59] {Threei} stop above .15 for scaslpers, .20 for day traders
[11:00] {Threei} this is interesting:
[11:00] {Threei} US) Treasury Sec Geithner: Reiterates opinion that he is against re-instating Glass-Stegal Act
[11:00] {Threei} I'd like to hear the reasoning
[11:01] {nemo} stopped

[11:03] {BillyD} SOLF keeps heading north
[11:04] {Threei} I hate GLD
[11:04] {magoo} i hate trading
[11:04] {Threei} BXMNF is probably the only stock I'll have remaining to call
[11:05] {Les} MA breaking out
[11:05] {BillyD} RIMM off 58 with some consolidation
[11:06] {dino} lol rep burgess to geithner, "i don't think you should quit, you shouldn't have been hired"
[11:07] {magoo} nlst stopped
[11:09] {Threei} 1:1 GLD
[11:10] {fernp} cruel
[11:10] {nemo} very
[11:10] {strider} partial GLD +.09
[11:11] {Threei} I agree with Burgess
[11:11] {dino} v going to join ma?

[11:13] {strider} out balance GLD +.10
[11:16] {dino} ctrp hl l .98
[11:22] {magoo} .
[11:22] {BillyD} ssshhh....I am trying to find a setup out of the 20K potential stocks
[11:23] {BillyD} amazing how it can see m difficult ayt times
[11:23] {dino} 3i in answer to your question....too much glass
[11:23] {Threei} and not enough steagal?
[11:24] {dino} has to do w/thev old glass houses and name calling
[11:25] {fernp} YGE valid dbi, Vad?

[11:31] {Threei} this slow grind is not something I can grasp
[11:31] {fernp} WMT, Vad
[11:31] {BillyD} torture
[11:31] {fernp} C&H
[11:31] {Threei} WMT looks potentially explosive
[11:31] {Threei} .15 would be a long trigger
[11:32] {fernp} C&H against the market
[11:32] {fernp} ok. thanks
[11:36] {dino} ctrp stopped -.34
[11:37] {Threei} I would feel more comfortable with shorting SOLF at .95 breakdown than with long
[11:37] {Threei} if stays under 7 of course
[11:37] {BillyD} Vad, do you call GLD on its own merit or opposite of some other mkt component
[11:37] {BillyD} makes sense SOLF
[11:38] {Threei} on it's own and with market
[11:38] {Threei} why opposite
[11:38] {BillyD} wasn't sure....it is GOLd stock right?
[11:38] {Threei} market was selling dow, dollar was upticking
[11:38] {Threei} it's gold ETF
[11:38] {nemo} gld
[11:38] {nemo} sorry

[11:41] {Threei} this is momo candidate
[11:42] {Threei} OPTT Hearing firm has won 50MW order from EDF unit in Spain
[11:42] {Threei} - Speculation that the deal is worth $70-80M to OPTT, which would make it the largest order ever. (10.18, +0.54, 5.60%)
[11:42] {Threei} OPTT knows how to run
[11:42] {Threei} 11 easy
[11:42] {nemo} might want to keep an eye on ntap, gapped up and has maintained strength
[11:43] {BillyD} yes, buy and pray at this point but I can not do it

[11:53] {Threei} I sold my OPTT at .83, and not at 11,
[11:53] {Threei} which is 17 cents sacrifice to poor countries
[11:53] {strider} bidding OPPT at.26
[11:54] {Threei} oh and to answer nemo's question Naomi Klein
[11:54] {strider} not likely to get hit.
[11:54] {Threei} AIG Reportedly Senator Bachus (R) has requested hearings on AIG bailout
[11:54] {strider} WMT consolidating

[11:55] {Threei} right after I posted news
[11:55] {BillyD} nice one

[12:00] {Threei} yes
[12:00] {fernp} ty
[12:01] {Threei} and with any market help it should be much more than scalp
[12:01] {ese} ya am starting to think that
[12:02] {nemo} rim .40 break...important level
[12:02] {Threei} an advocate for Maasai tribespeople in Kenya who have lost at least 5 million cattle to drought in recent years, puts it in even sharper terms. "The Maasai community does not drive 4x4s or fly off on holidays in airplanes," she says. "We have not caused climate change, yet we are the ones suffering. This is an injustice and should be stopped right now."
[12:02] {Threei} why oh why did I ever learn how to read
[12:02] {nemo} fine when we nuke the killer asteroid, they can owe us for eternity
[12:03] {Threei} let me post the most relecant news for today:

[12:04] {Threei} 'cause we owe them, you know
[12:04] {dino} that's the problem
[12:04] {dino} it's not my fault
[12:04] {Threei} my philosphical thought for the day:
[12:05] {Threei} Feel of guilt is major warfare of the left
[12:05] {dino} exactly
[12:05] {dino} hey, i found out who john galt is

[12:06] {dino} still have 400 to go, just order the other book
[12:06] {Threei} while it's a pageturner during reading,
[12:07] {Threei} in a month or two you will still have a lot of appreciation for the message but will cool off abolut literary side
[12:07] {Threei} as in writing quality
[12:07] {dino} perhaps, but i have to say it fits our times, can see it happening
[12:08] {Threei} that's the message part :)_
[12:08] {Threei} it was even more striking when I read it, as it had one-two punch
[12:08] {Threei} first I saw total reflection of everything that killed USSR
[12:08] {dino} you lived it
[12:08] {Threei} and then I saw the same thing starting to develop here
[12:09] {Threei} both similarities are so striking
[12:09] {dino} unfortunately
[12:09] {Threei} a lot of slogans and mottos and common expressions she uses in the book are almost word in word what we heard in USSR
[12:10] {dino} when was it written?
[12:10] {dino} 50s?
[12:10] {Threei} 1967
[12:10] {Threei} first publishing
[12:10] {dino} ok
[12:11] {Threei} was written for a while of course, but here is the kicker that continues to amaze me by its incredinble and bitter irony:
[12:11] {Threei} Alan Greenspan was one of the closest circle people at the time of its wqriting, and was getting each new chapter as it was finished
[12:12] {dino} wow, he learned nothing from it
[12:12] {fernp} .
[12:13] {Threei} Ayn with her "gold is the only money", and her first student Alan later praised as "who needs gold when you have Greenspan"
[12:13] {dino} shaw stopped -.27
[12:13] {Threei} and whole interventionist policies
[12:13] {Threei} that she would kill him for
[12:14] {dino} guilt pressure
[12:16] {Threei} after .20 break WMT stop can be trailed
[12:16] {BillyD} to .10?
[12:16] {Threei} to under .05 or .10, your choice... depends on your (im)patience
[12:16] {BillyD} lol
[12:17] {Threei} here is a total beauty:
[12:17] {Threei} Two years ago, Ecuador's center-left president, Rafael Correa, said something very rare for the leader of an oil-exporting nation: He wanted to leave the oil in the ground. But, he argued, wealthy countries should pay Ecuador where half the population lives in poverty not to release that carbon into the atmosphere, as "compensation for the damages caused by the out-of-proportion amount of historical and current emissions of greenhouse gases."
[12:17] {Threei} think about it: he wants to get paid not for oil but just for having it,
[12:17] {Threei} so he will have money and keep his oil
[12:18] {patience} must be a lawyer
[12:18] {Threei} so, do you think this caused major laughter in the world?
[12:19] {Threei} think again:
[12:19] {nemo} I'm sure western europe was all for it
[12:19] {Threei} the plan has generated widespread international support. Germany has already offered $70 million a year for 13 years, and several other European governments have expressed interest in participating. If Yasun is saved, it will demonstrate that climate debt isn't just a disguised ploy for more aid it's a far more credible solution to the climate crisis than the ones we have now. "This initiative needs to succeed," says Atossa Soltani, executive director of Amazon Watch. "I think we can set a model for other countries."
[12:19] {dino} well whats the difference from the guy who doesn't want to work but gets health, housing, food stamps etc
[12:19] {fernp} .
[12:20] {nemo} It's like NKorea threatening with a nuclear weapon...it's frickin CO2 blackmail
[12:20] {dino} and yet, temps are dropping...
[12:21] {nemo} Ya' know...2012 is sounding better all the time...wipe the idiots out, and start again
[12:21] {BillyD} what to say
[12:21] {Threei} is it going to be intellect-based selection?
[12:21] {dino} just worried that "rush" might be right w.2112
[12:21] {Threei} well, no difference for me anyway, I won't survive it anyway
[12:22] {nemo} that was based on Rand's "Anthem"
[12:22] {dino} wow, did not know
[12:22] {nemo} Absolutely...Neil Peart is a Randian
[12:23] {nemo} Back in the days of vinyl, on the dust jacket, it said "Dedicated to the genius of Ayn Rand"
[12:24] {dino} cool
[12:25] {dino} shaw takes me out by 2 cents
[12:26] {nemo} http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Peart go to "Career before joining Rush"
[12:27] {patience} gold stocks perking up
[12:29] {nemo} look at fcx patience
[12:31] {patience} similar to yri which has had some better peaks and valleys to scalp
[12:33] {Threei} so far, bull flag formed on WMT
[12:33] {Threei} volume went down as it should
[12:33] {Threei} need to start completing it now for the trade to develop successfully
[12:38] {magoo} AWIAV?
[12:39] {Threei} WMT
[12:39] {Threei} and this spike is exactly what I want to see as completion of bull flag, just need a new high now
[12:42] {fernp} having problems with my connection. Connecting and disconnecting continuously
[12:42] {Threei} I noticed fern
[12:42] {Threei} quotes OK?

[12:44] {Threei} new high WMT
[12:44] {Threei} trail stop

[12:44] {strider} yesterday's high & close, .25
[12:45] {Threei} [12:16] {Threei} to under .05 or .10, your choice... depends on your (im)patience
[12:45] {fernp} lol ok
[12:49] {fernp} no strider, yest's high was .15 that was the reason we opened the trade at .16
[12:49] {Les} WIAV?
[12:50] {Les} thats not a ticker

[12:50] {strider} we're both wrong....that was an aftermarket hight yesterday.

[13:39] {Threei} Pre-Paid Legal Services Inc Received FTC draft complain on Nov 18; outcome not yet determinable
[13:39] {Threei} - November 18, 2009, we received a proposed draft complaint from the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") seeking permanent injunctive relief, disgorgement of proceeds and other relief, including costs, relating to our Identity Theft Shield and Affirmative Defense Response System ("ADRS") Program. The proposed draft complaint alleges our ADRS program and related materials violate Section 5(a) of the FTC Act regarding asserted misleading representations, express or implied.
[13:39] {Threei} - The proposed draft complaint also names Harland Stonecipher, our Chief Executive Officer, and Mark Brown, our Chief Marketing Officer, as defendants. We previously received a Civil Investigative Demand from the FTC on March 23, 2007 on the ADRS program. We have made voluntary revisions to the marketing materials originally provided to the FTC in 2007 and 2009. The FTC may decide to commence federal court proceedings with this proposed draft complaint.
[13:39] {Threei} - The ultimate outcome of the matter is not determinable but we will vigorously defend our interests in this matter.
[13:40] {nemo} is that like Louis Cipher
[13:40] {BillyD} the volatility enough for me to stay away
[13:44] {magoo} only game in town

[13:55] {Threei} nemo, you haven't taken WMT?
[13:55] {nemo} no
[13:55] {dino} ctrp filled that gap
[13:55] {nemo} you were talking about that during my computer problems

[13:56] {Threei} oh I see
[13:56] {ese} right then Out fitb 20k of it .05 +.03 will hang on to the the other 5k till the end of the day......see you all have choir to teach

[13:56] {nemo} I saw, stop trailing and went..oh
[13:56] {ese} take care
[13:56] {dino} esi hitting support
[13:57] {BillyD} Vad, after buying breakout talk at lunchtime you gave nemo, he probably kicked PC at the time of your mention
[13:57] {fernp} bye ese
[13:57] {Threei} take care ese
[13:57] {BillyD} a subconcious move to prevent him from buying
[13:58] {Threei} well, I told him many times: physical violence is not very satisfying when aimed at lifeless objects
[13:58] {Les} ciao ese.
[13:59] {Les} vad, JEC breakdown?
[13:59] {BillyD} yeah, and I guess trout slapping doesn't cut it either
[13:59] {Threei} les, kidding?
[13:59] {Les} and if I say I wasn't?
[14:00] {Threei} there is no slightest sign of breakdown setup on it
[14:00] {Threei} it moved about 30 cents since I called it "bouncy" for which term I was remprimaned in dcc by some english professors
[14:00] {Les} what? gonna take out previous high?
[14:00] {Les} .60+?
[14:00] {Threei} don't know about highs, but there is not much readability to it
[14:01] {nemo} it looks just like the indexes
[14:02] {Threei} Market Internals update at 2:00pmET
[14:02] {Threei} - NYSE volume 600M shares, about 15% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 12.6:1.
[14:02] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 1.42B shares, about 2% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 5.1:1.
[14:02] {Threei} - VIX index +9% to just under 24.00
[14:03] {Les} http://up.widget.mibbit.com/up/2T4EurQ6.gif
[14:03] {Les} does it constitute your preferred breakout pattern?
[14:04] {Les} if the stock and market conditions were different?
[14:05] {Les} I remember trying to short a similar setup a long time ago, for which you berated me.
[14:06] {Les} wfc breakdown
[14:07] {Threei} volume is not exactly right on this screenshot, les
[14:07] {Les} thou art correct. volume are estimates
[14:07] {Threei} went down as price approached the resistance
[14:08] {Threei} and don't pay much attention to berating, I do that just to maintain uniformity of experience
[14:09] {Threei} you know... for people to have their expectations justified
[14:09] {Threei} predictable outcome
[14:10] {Les} what r u, shrink on the side?
[14:11] {Les} I have pulled up IB chart on JEC. will ditch freestockcharts at close. IB charts much better. Nemo was right
[14:12] {Threei} I am not a shrink, I just enjoy delivering pain and suffering
[14:12] {nemo} twice a day usually
[14:12] {Threei} by lucky conincidence, it's also the most effectibe teaching method
[14:13] {Threei} so I pretend I do it for the members' good
[14:13] {Threei} while in fact I simply enjoy it
[14:14] {Les} :s

[15:09] {Threei} to zoom in
[15:09] {BillyD} how Vad
[15:09] {Threei} so if you want to see small formation better, you zoom in.. to see full day again, zoom out
[15:10] {Threei} click on chart villy,

[09:01] {Les} what an age of mediocrity we live in...
[09:01] {nemo} not really...nothing has changed...the vast majority is mediocre...and much that appears not to be is just pomp and circumstance
[09:02] {nemo} plu cest change, plu cest le meme chose

[09:23] {ese} somebody tell what this means
[09:23] {ese} facilitate hedging of convertabel notes?
[09:24] {nemo} convertible notes can be converted into common share
[09:24] {ese} is this bloody bullish or bearish
[09:24] {nemo} increasing the supply of common shares
[09:24] {nemo} increase supply, potentially decreases value
[09:25] {nemo} therefore, I think the loan of stock for shorting purposes allows them to hedge the value of the stock to protect their note offering
[09:25] {nemo} not necessarily bullish
[09:26] {ese} tks nemo......got that figured....how does it facilitate hedging......helps them hedge against a short position?
[09:28] {nemo} sell the shares against the value of the notes...db is offering the notes so they're on the hook for them. This gives them a supply of stock that can help limit losses on the offering
[09:28] {nemo} eslr did the same thing last year
[09:28] {ese} they have a short position on themselves and now have to cover it?
[09:28] {fernp} when I grow up I want to be like you, nemo

[09:59] {Threei} - Dealers noting that Bullard actually comments was ""FOMC did not begin policy rate increases until 2.5- to 3 years after the end of each of the past two recessions"...which originally was interpreted as Fed likely on hold until early 2012 after the recent positive preliminary US GDP data
[10:01] {Threei} let's trail GLD to above .80

[10:13] {nemo} not what was being passed around this morning...interesting
[10:14] {BillyD} Vad, when you tightened CLD stop to .80, do you still look for original 1:1 of .15
[10:15] {BillyD} just to clarify
[10:15] {Threei} as a rule, yes
[10:17] {Les} http://up.widget.mibbit.com/up/t8O9Z3xs.gif

[10:23] {Les} you're right nemo, haven't even begun to explore IB's abilities
[10:23] {nemo} that's a great LII interface
[10:23] {Threei} really? I hate it
[10:24] {nemo} IB's charts will be more responsive than Freestockcharts.com
[10:24] {Les} will look into it.
[10:24] {Threei} I prefer traditional level2 look
[10:24] {fernp} VVUS short .89 w/stop above 9.0? Vad

[10:24] {Threei} yup

[10:25] {nemo} LII visual on resistance levels

[10:25] {nemo} in the LII
[10:26] {Threei} oh I see what you mean
[10:26] {nemo} some charts do it also
[10:26] {Threei} I just don't see much use for it
[10:26] {Les} at present I can trade with the calls here just with what i've got.

[10:35] {Threei} chart wise, yes
[10:36] {Threei} just not delighted by perspective to get stuck in it for too long
[10:37] {Threei} and BAC can do that easily
[10:37] {Threei} WFC is normally more perky one
[10:37] {Les} hig has gone nuts
[10:38] {Threei} financials disconnected from market today

[11:14] {Threei} - TARP savings to be used to reduce budget deficit
[11:15] {nemo} that'll be like Obama's cost reduction mandate when he first came into office
[11:16] {dino} well, if they don't spend it i guess it automatically comes out of budget?
[11:16] {dino} sort of like avoiding walmart, ha i saved $
[11:19] {BillyD} WFC short idea .80 break if mkt breaks
[11:19] {Threei} I like it
[11:20] {Threei} but don't use market as guide
[11:20] {Threei} us FAS
[11:20] {Threei} use
[11:20] {Threei} they are disconnected today, and FAS is better guide for WFC
[11:20] {BillyD} does FAS need to go down as well then
[11:21] {Threei} yes
[11:21] {BillyD} ok
[11:21] {Threei} if you like to make your life interesting and complicated, use FAZ... it's inverse :)
[11:21] {BillyD} why I asked
[11:23] {BillyD} what # would trigger FAS to clue us on short, not that it matters right now
[11:23] {magoo} so really, there is 2 trades there then
[11:23] {Threei} it's mostly about direction
[11:23] {magoo} fas and wfc
[11:24] {BillyD} ok trend
[11:24] {Threei} no mags, not by me
[11:24] {Threei} I don't have a setup for FAS
[11:24] {Threei} just want to use it as a directional help for WFC which does have clean triggere
[11:26] {dino} stop to /83 ilmn

[12:06] {Threei} voice from behind the curtain:
[12:07] {Threei} don't you worry boys, we saw it coming and switched to "climate change" instead of "global warming"
[12:07] {dino} waste of time and money
[12:07] {Threei} so any change will git
[12:07] {Threei} fit
[12:08] {dino} ironically their computer models did not forecast any cooling. sort of like the rating agencies never thought real estate could drop
[12:08] {BillyD} HIG B?O but near lunchtime
[12:08] {Threei} yes but it worked on p[revious break...
[12:09] {Threei} and yesterday, break during lunch time worked on HIG
[12:09] {Threei} adds to its credibility
[12:09] {BillyD} mini pattern over bigger pattern.....lol
[12:09] {BillyD} would like a tighter .10 stop
[12:10] {BillyD} any thoguhts on stop?
[12:10] {Threei} ideally, it would retreat once again and hold above .30
[12:11] {Threei} so we could use that as astop
[12:11] {BillyD} make it so then...lol
[12:12] {Threei} there you go

[12:44] {dino} gww
[12:45] {nemo} what up w/grainger
[12:46] {Threei} didn't we discuss yesterday the difference between bounces and breakouts in the same context?
[12:46] {BillyD} yes
06[12:47] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large yesterday's trading log as a memory refreshment
[12:47] {nemo} sorry, I think of this, incorrectly obviously, as a breakout after the bounce off of .60
[12:47] {Threei} sorry and incorrectly are right, the rest is not
[12:48] {dino} acquiring alliance energy, lowers '09 guidance
[12:48] {nemo} thus "obviously"
[12:48] {Threei} it's a bounce play, and .80 break simply serves as a trigger for it
[12:48] {nemo} okey dokey
[12:49] {nemo} My rorschach interpretation of the rimm chart pattern is an inverse dandruff shampoo
[12:50] {Les} why can't you see a dog or a cat like normal children
[12:50] {Threei} or... err, never mind

[13:27] {Threei} this is remarkable queitness in the market
[13:28] {Threei} almost feels like something huge is brewing
[13:29] {fernp} You scared me, I thought you received spam to read
[13:29] {Threei} no :(
[13:29] {Threei} even spammers don't need me
[13:30] {fernp} that's sad, very sad
[13:31] {BillyD} how about I forward my spam to you as kind jesture....J is intentional
[13:31] {Threei} no thank you... let me wallow in my suffering
[13:31] {fernp} no ty
[13:32] {Les} sure vad, I can help there too. I have lots of buxom german blondes that would love to spam you.
[13:32] {Les} european spam is wonderful
[13:32] {BillyD} c'mon, you don't lost millions deposited into your account
[13:32] {fernp} reading "trade with passion and purpose" by Mark Whistler I don't need more spam. TY
[13:33] {Les} i lost a lot trying to go long RIMM that last trade. this market only seems to work before 11 am
[13:33] {Threei} a lot?
[13:33] {Threei} how can you lose a lot with 10 cents stop?
[13:33] {Les} I wanna make 500 a day in the future
[13:34] {Les} made it today comfortably
[13:34] {Les} and gave too much of it back
[13:34] {Les} the best trades are before 11
[13:34] {Threei} how many shares of RIMM do you play?
[13:34] {Les} 2k
[13:35] {Les} don't be going calculating my p&l vad
[13:35] {Threei} it's a bit too much for noon scalp on volatile strock
[13:35] {Threei} but in any case, it's roughly half
[13:36] {nemo} got the inverse dandruff shampooo on the S&P and Qs
[13:36] {Threei} just not sure how 10 cents stop ca be qualified as a lot
[13:36] {nemo} figure out how much you're willing to lose, and size your lot
[13:36] {nemo} according to the stop
[13:37] {Les} yeh sure
[13:37] {Les} getting less interested in 12 pm - afternoon trades
[13:38] {Les} will size accordingly
[13:38] {Les} but today was good day for me
[13:38] {Threei} one thing bothers me les
[13:38] {Les} hmmm
[13:38] {Threei} the way you handled that first short on RIMM
[13:39] {Les} let me look at log
[13:39] {Threei} it's a randon reinforcement trap
[13:39] {Threei} random
[13:39] {Threei} it was stopped
[13:39] {Threei} you haven't taken a stop and made a profit on it later on
[13:40] {nemo} Hey Les...are you paper trading?
[13:40] {Les} y
[13:40] {Les} u mean the last RIMM short
[13:40] {nemo} yes
[13:40] {Les} yes that was risky
[13:40] {Threei} that wasn't just risky
[13:40] {Threei} that was ahainst the rules
[13:41] {Threei} stop is hit - stop must be taken
[13:41] {Threei} period
[13:41] {Threei} no ifs or buts
[13:41] {Les} but was watching ticker/MACDh relationship between spy and rimm
[13:41] {Threei} you set your stop at .25
[13:41] {nemo} MACD is a lagging indicator les
[13:41] {Threei} you can always find justification for widening your stop
[13:42] {Threei} the worst thing that can happen to you is:
[13:42] {Threei} break the rules and profit from it
[13:42] {dino} adsk l .00
[13:47] {Les} don't worry about negative reinforcement, i've let stops slide too many times and suffered for it.
[13:48] {Les} but this time I saw rimm was weak and went with it. perhaps judicial loosening of stop next time
[13:48] {Threei} then I worry about you continuing doing it
[13:49] {Les} no its better today.
[13:49] {Les} that one trade has been sole example. i have been more anally retentive elsewhere, especially last rimm bounce
[13:50] {Les} another rimm bounce coming?
[13:54] {Threei} rather looks like short
[13:54] {Threei} but not confident enough for a call

[14:44] {Threei} not exactly Billy
[14:44] {Threei} it was rather:

[09:07] {Les} "The problem is not that some institutions are too large. It's that there is currently no legal authority to unwind, in an orderly way, a failing financial conglomerate."
[09:07] {Les} hmmm
[09:07] {cosmo} that legal authority has been deregulated i think
[09:08] {cosmo} those serving time for the 1980's Saving and loan scandle where subsequently pardoned by W during his last week.

[09:57] {Les} HGSI close to breaking suppport
[09:57] {Threei} 29?
[09:58] {Les} .97 no? but its bouncing
[09:59] {Threei} hgsi
[09:59] {Threei} let it consolidate above the support,
[09:59] {Threei} so you have the resistance defined for a stop placement
[09:59] {Threei} so far resistance is .20
[10:00] {Threei} die NTRI
[10:01] {ese} ya know....i get this feeling drys is going to be mentioning a drilling rig contract soon....call me crazy but......it's acting odd
[10:02] {Threei} BLTXX had 14th straight increase ese
[10:02] {Threei} both DRYS and EGLE are strong
[10:02] {dino} i'll hit the time machine w/stewie and let you know es
[10:02] {fernp} ty Vad

[10:02] {Threei} I'll be right behind with mad Doc, dino
[10:02] {ese} ya ok
[10:03] {Threei} ks :)
[10:03] {Threei} he says flux capacitor is almost fixed
[10:03] {dino} lol
[10:03] {ese} goes right along with the clairvoyance thing
[10:04] {Threei} that;s the one we embracing, right?
[10:04] {Threei} not eschewing
[10:05] {dino} aixg
[10:06] {Threei} RIMM bounced
[10:06] {Threei} right into resistance
[10:06] {Threei} NTRI 1:1
[10:06] {Threei} grrr... keep missing RIMM
[10:07] {Threei} oh come on, that was a perfect short opportunity finally
[10:07] {Threei} and I slept through it
[10:08] {dino} ibkc hl s .60 stop .94
06[10:08] * strider slaps Threei around a bit with a large feather pillow
[10:09] {Threei} I don't take this kind of abuse from males strider...
[10:09] {dino} no pillow talk
[10:10] {fernp} Vad, Why have we shorted NTRI? its daily and intraday seemed good for breakout. What have you seen on it?
[10:10] {Threei} breakout would have been invalidation of the setup,
[10:10] {Threei} breakdown of the support is breakout failure
[10:10] {Threei} or breakout invalidation if happens first
[10:10] {Threei} rught?
[10:10] {fernp} fading the setup
[10:10] {fernp} ok
[10:11] {Threei} yes
[10:11] {Threei} so, looking for short setup, you have two options
[10:11] {Threei} short the weakest
[10:11] {Threei} or short relatively storng but failing to follow through
[10:11] {Threei} and the sign of such failure is loss of support instead of breaking the resistance
[10:12] {Threei} after signal is in, the rest is simple a trade management with no thinking involved
[10:12] {fernp} I understand. Thank you
[10:12] {magoo} AGO big pullbk
[10:12] {Threei} (my favorite part as it alows me to get back to my neanderthal core)
[10:12] {Threei} now, having RIMM pegged as a short and missing it keeps me grinding my teeth
[10:14] {Les} MS?
[10:14] {Threei} Les, took HGSI breakdown?
[10:14] {Threei} nicely hit 1:1 and more
[10:15] {Threei} MS is .50 break short
[10:15] {Les} i am ashamed to say no
[10:15] {Les} i did not
[10:16] {Threei} with stop for scalpers above .60
[10:16] {Threei} no need to be ashamed really, just use the discussion and observation to collect more of "standard situations"
[10:17] {Les} k. I like reading charts. trading them is not so easy for me.
[10:18] {Threei} of course... otherwise everyone would be doing that, got rich, abandoned work and civilization as we know it would have ceased to exist
[10:18] {Threei} that's what we are doing here though: eliminating barrier between read and execution
[10:20] {Threei} as far as I am concerned Hawaii can have their pineapple express back... this rain becomes tiresome
[10:21] {fernp} HIG .40 break is good idea?
[10:21] {Threei} most likely, yes
[10:22] {Threei} looking at SPWRA with short in mind
[10:22] {Threei} got e-mail from a friend over there though, they have it even worse right now... his litarl words were "my lawn flowing past the window"
[10:22] {fernp} lol
[10:22] {Threei} .50 in nearest resistance for SPWRA
[10:23] {Threei} let's see if it bounces there,
[10:23] {Threei} to short first weakness with stop above .60
[10:24] {dino} cov ibkc -.11 stuck
[10:24] {Threei} volume looks to be shaping right for HIG breakout fern
[10:24] {Threei} Long Setup: HIG .40 break if stays above .30
[10:24] {fernp} thank. my finger is ready
[10:25] {Threei} SPWRA, breakdown short would be .30
[10:25] {Threei} .30 break I mean
[10:25] {Threei} with stop above .50...
[10:25] {Threei} a bit wider than I'd like
[10:26] {Threei} HIG invalidated
[10:27] {dino} esc hl l .19 stop .87
[10:28] {Les} weakness all round, but where's the entry...
[10:28] {fernp} .29 SPWRA in one entry
[10:28] {fernp} is
[10:29] {dino} hl jec l .15 stop .83
[10:30] {Threei} US Fed to trim maxiumum maturity of discount window loans to 28 days from 90; effective Jan 14

[10:39] {nemo} rimm too
[10:39] {Threei} .35 break
[10:39] {Threei} I'd trail it fern
[10:40] {fernp} .40?
[10:40] {Threei} to above .45 or .40, depending on how much in hurry you are
[10:40] {Threei} there you go Les
[10:40] {Threei} pattern recognition starts kicking in

[10:47] {nemo} eh...not if you include the tail on the candle
[10:47] {nemo} that is since you did call break .35
[10:47] {dino} tjx hl l .30, stop .97
[10:47] {Threei} ok, 10:07
[10:47] {Les} wait a minute. inverted c&h?

[10:48] {nemo} nah....B for time
[10:48] {nemo} then again...he made money....so
[10:48] {Les} I am smart arse like nemo, but I do pay attention
[10:48] {Threei} finding patterns, nailing entries and actually executing trades
[10:48] {nemo} yep

[10:54] {Threei} with stop above .35?
[10:54] {nemo} [10:38] {Les} fcx short?
[10:54] {nemo} [10:39] {&Threei} looks right
[10:54] {nemo} [10:39] {fernp} still above .50 SPWRA stop?
[10:54] {nemo} [10:39] {nemo} rimm too
[10:54] {nemo} yes
[10:54] {nemo} well, I was looking .30
[10:55] {nemo} or a close above .30 that is, I chicken out on tails of the candles alot, and then it closes within the stop range on me
[10:55] {nemo} Makes me feel like an idiot when I stop out at the top or bottom of the range
[10:56] {Threei} don't provoke me
[10:56] {nemo} provoke what?
[10:56] {Threei} we neanderthals like those chins
[10:56] {nemo} oh...go ahead, it'll make you feel good
[10:56] {nemo} remember...I'm a masochist

[11:18] {Threei} I just hate breakouts on it
[11:18] {fernp} ok
[11:19] {Threei} and we moved into lunch time
[11:19] {nemo} fcx at sink or swim
[11:19] {Threei} can we reasonably expect big break and follow through ,
[11:19] {Threei} or rather choppy shakeouts?
[11:19] {nemo} the latter
[11:19] {Threei} that's my concern
[11:19] {nemo} which means, it'll drop like a stone
[11:19] {nemo} since I figure shakeouts
[11:20] {fernp} you are too rational Vad. Mags QID? lol
[11:20] {nemo} we are approaching the nefarious lunch hour
[11:20] {Threei} you want irrational? here:

[11:21] {nemo} that's a good one
[11:21] {Threei} how's that for irrational? :)

[11:22] {BillyD} was that a real call?
[11:22] {magoo} pard vad
[11:22] {Threei} no Billy
[11:22] {fernp} no
[11:22] {nemo} look at .25, same trap as yesterday
[11:22] {BillyD} ok, there is CC going on now for NABI

[11:34] {BillyD} I take scalps today and there seems to be follow thru....
[11:34] {BillyD} yesterday the opposite
[11:34] {nemo} glad I didn't take Nabi break
[11:34] {BillyD} took NABI at 4.61 this morning for scalp...and you know the rest...lol
06[11:35] * nemo slaps BillyD around a bit with a large roll of cash
[11:35] {Threei} well, at least you didn't get scalped
[11:36] {nemo} scalped isn't the word that comes to mind
[11:36] {BillyD} exactly, not complaining or regretting
[11:36] {BillyD} simply observing
[11:38] {BillyD} Vad, question for you
[11:38] {BillyD} I took SPWRA short at 22
[11:38] {BillyD} with .10 hopeful stop due to large offer and .16 drop dead
[11:39] {BillyD} took +.10 scalp
[11:39] {BillyD} it looked like trap possibilities
[11:40] {BillyD} does that stop structure and last 1 min high of .09 make sense to you?
[11:40] {Threei} it does,
[11:40] {Threei} the only distinction I'd make is
[11:40] {Threei} I would be more jazzed about looking for entries into bounce on it
[11:41] {Threei} bounce into resistance, if it shows a setup
[11:41] {Threei} it tends to torture you for a while on breakdowns
[11:41] {Threei} not this time, you got luckier on this entry
[11:41] {BillyD} you mean SPWRA personality ?
[11:41] {Threei} but remember hiow long it kept us hostages with .30 entrey
[11:41] {BillyD} ok
[11:41] {Threei} the way it trades today, yes
[11:42] {Threei} overall, that was valid setup

[11:57] {strider} just remember, vad after you eschew it, you should spit it out.
[11:58] {fernp} thanks for your rationality :-)
[11:58] {Threei} yeah, or I'd have to embrace it
[11:58] {strider} eewwww!
[11:58] {Threei} there is some mismatch here

[12:33] {strider} Hey fern. Awhile back you said the stop loss function on LVL2 was working for you. what route does that work with?
[12:34] {fernp} route -} route and in the blotter you see "auto" when executed
[12:35] {fernp} route -} stop
[12:36] {strider} And under 'type' is a stop loss a stop or a stop L?
[12:36] {fernp} limit or market. What do you want? :-)
[12:37] {strider} OK. didn't know if "L" mean limit or loss.
[12:37] {fernp} StopT should be trailing. but I never used
[12:42] {strider} So, under route}stop, there are two choices for type: stop and stop L. stop = stop market, and stop L means stop limit. Correct?
[12:42] {fernp} yes
[12:42] {strider} thx
[12:42] {fernp} :-)
[12:45] {strider} btw, +.22 on ESE. out .91. thx dino.
[12:45] {fernp} note that if you select Stop then "price field" is unavailable. You can't write a price there
[12:47] {strider} Oh. so under Stop L you put in a stop price and a limit price?
[12:47] {fernp} right
[12:47] {strider} don't understand
[12:47] {fernp} that's the difference
[12:47] {strider} so say stop price would be .50 (on a long) and limit would be .53?
[12:48] {strider} for example.
[12:48] {nemo} interesting, where are those choices?
[12:48] {Threei} stop price is the price your stop is getting triggered by
[12:48] {nemo} I bring up stop route, but don't see those choices
[12:48] {Threei} limit is the price to wich it will chase
[12:48] {strider} yeah. what I said}:)
[12:49] {Threei} unlike stop market where you enter triger price only
[12:49] {Threei} and market order is being sent when it's hit
[12:49] {strider} nemo..under route, choose stop.
[12:49] {fernp} limit is the worst price you admit
[12:49] {strider} gotcha.
[12:49] {nemo} yes
[12:50] {nemo} but I don't see any choices...just using the limit and market buttons?
[12:50] {strider} under route=stop, type options are stop and stop L
[12:50] {BillyD} nemo. on L2 do you see the TYPE drop down
[12:51] {nemo} yes route=} stop
[12:51] {strider} now look under type options
[12:51] {strider} 'type'
[12:51] {nemo} must have the wrong LII interface
[12:51] {nemo} no such animal
[12:51] {fernp} route -} stop and type --} stop or stopL
[12:51] {strider} need advanced LII
[12:52] {BillyD} do you have to have the ROUTE Stop option checked or can you use NASDAQ as the route and still enter stop orders?
[12:52] {strider} actually you don't.
[12:52] {BillyD} it appears I can on my L2 order entry
[12:52] {strider} it's under my regular lvl 2 also.
[12:52] {fernp} doesn't work Billy
[12:53] {BillyD} have to use STOP route then Fern?
[12:53] {fernp} the order never triggers if you don't select route = stop
[12:54] {BillyD} ok, thank you...are the fills pretty good then doing a stop limit
[12:54] {strider} new dbl bottom for JEC, dino.
[12:54] {BillyD} since you don't know what route is used
[12:55] {strider} PARD
[12:55] {fernp} if you are in front of your computer don't use stop orders
[12:55] {BillyD} right, but if stepped away is it reliable using the STOP route to get fills
[12:56] {fernp} yes. But i always use market order
[12:56] {dino} dk strider coin toss imo

[13:08] {BillyD} Vad, does that lunchtime comment apply to your RIMM bounce play earlier?
[13:09] {BillyD} or is it bounce plays that have better follow thru

[13:10] {Threei} so are bounces,

Nov 16 2009

Not a bad way to start the week - 4 wins, couple stops, then a few wins again. Most of them were scalps. RIMM, HGSI, APOL (this one was good for more), NABI, INFY, CAT... quite a specter.

Session Time: Mon Nov 16 00:00:00 2009

[08:24] {KSystems} Boo
[08:24] {BillyD} lol
[08:25] {nemo} Oh no, Ein Poltergeist
06[08:38] * KSystems shakes his rusty chains
[08:46] {nemo} retail data must not have been earthshattering
[08:48] {Threei} *(US) OCT ADVANCED RETAIL SALES: 1.4% V 0.9%E; EX AUTOS: 0.2% V 0.4%E
[08:48] {Threei} - Retail Sales ex Auto & Gas: 0.3% v 0.3%e
[08:48] {Threei} *(US) NOV EMPIRE MANUFACTURING: 23.5 V 30.0E
[08:49] {Threei} EGLE DB Raised EGLE to Hold from Sell, price target: $4.50
[08:49] {Threei} that's smart, considering EGLE is at 5.60
[08:52] {Les} gm. I'm impressed that the US consumer still has it in them to keep retail sales positive. Or have sales dropped so low that even a small positive number is a given?
[08:53] {Threei} who knows
[08:53] {Les} HGSI doesn't see eye to eye with the market.
[08:53] {Threei} just a little piece of overall mosaic, and impossible to judge without seeing much broader picture
[08:55] {Les} last minute cancellation of Repin last Thursday. H1N1 appears to be in our midst in this part of the world. 1 child sick last week. the other home today. nothing serious.

[08:55] {Threei} - Exec: "We have responded to all of FDAs previous questions. We plan to address the current questions as well. In certain respects, the Complete Response Letter appears to be inconsistent with the FDAs published final rule governing the development of new drugs when human efficacy studies are not ethical or feasible."

[09:54] {Threei} 1:2 APOL
[09:54] {Threei} I am out in full
[09:54] {Threei} I don't see anything tradeable in RINO

[09:55] {BillyD} Vad, any read BCRX
[09:55] {magoo} out here .17 TY vad
[09:56] {magoo} 58.17
[09:56] {Threei} wtg
[09:57] {Threei} BCRX looks interesting on .40 break
[09:57] {magoo} keeps on trockin
[09:57] {Les} STP sitting smack on 50 MA on daily as resistance.
[09:57] {nemo} aapl pull back
[09:57] {dino} cedc hl l .65, stop lod
[09:59] {dino} no good stopped
[09:59] {Threei} Long Setup: BCRX .40 break if stays above .30
[10:00] {dino} shaw hl l .50 lod stop
[10:00] {Threei} US) SEPT BUSINESS INVENTORIES: -0.4% V -0.7%E

[10:07] {dino} cedc last try .44 hl l
[10:07] {dino} ibkc taunting me
[10:08] {Threei} what's so difficult Les... support is lower envelop o the range, resistance is higher one... that's all there is to it :)
[10:08] {dino} that cold of yours is bad
[10:10] {Les} so HGSI having broken resistance and yet fallen back through, we say that resistance is respected?
[10:10] {dino} 10500 strike in play
[10:11] {Threei} HGSI formed support at 28 from 9:51 to 9.58
[10:11] {Threei} then broke support
[10:11] {Threei} which served as short trigger to which I referred
[10:11] {nemo} maybe modify bcrx to .34 break?
[10:11] {Les} ty
[10:12] {Threei} I am just not sure it has any life in it nemo

[10:36] {Threei} Les, this play is that same concept of support breakdown... hope it becomes clearer
[10:37] {Les} I have no difficulty visualising b/o and b/d on ticker. Speaking the lingo is my problem...
[10:38] {Les} I can see what the ticker wants to do, but sound like a clutz when I try to talk about it...
[10:38] {Threei} easy... support is floor, resistance is ceiling
[10:38] {Les} ok. parent teacher meeting in 20. later...
[10:38] {Threei} if you break through the floor, you fall down
[10:38] {dino} hammer and ice theory

[12:01] {Threei} but it's more of a momo stock
[12:01] {Threei} hard to tell, really

[12:13] {BillyD} lol
[12:15] {ilana} RIMM .80 break with market help?
[12:15] {ilana} late
[12:16] {nemo} frickin' chinese water torture nabi
[12:17] {Threei} everything is
[12:17] {Les} Vad, I hear CNBC is attributing rally to Benny boy? We gonna sell off after he speaks you think?
[12:17] {Threei} RIMM, I view it as short but exact entries are tough here
[12:17] {Threei} just wring time of the day, too random
[12:18] {Threei} if they do they are idiotsa
[12:18] {Threei} -a
[12:18] {Threei} why would market need Benny today to rally?
[12:18] {Threei} it rallied on Friday without him
[12:18] {Threei} or Thu
[12:18] {Threei} or Wed
[12:18] {Threei} US) Fed Chairman Bernanke: Fed's mandate also includes keeping USD strong; sees moderate economic growth continuing through 2010; monitoring developments in USD closely
[12:18] {Threei} - Jobs to remain scarce for some time, hurting spending
[12:18] {Threei} - Inflation to remain subdued for some time, pledges to monitor inflation closely
[12:18] {Threei} - Recent depreciation of USD reflects the reversal of safe haven flows
[12:18] {Threei} - Fed to monitor USD developments closely.
[12:18] {Threei} - US economic strength will help ensure the USD remains strong
[12:19] {Threei} so what in that would start a rally?
[12:19] {ilana} NABI held pretty well this pullback
[12:20] {Threei} and if you look at intraday chart, didn't most opf the rally occurred in first 15 minutes, long before Ben opened his mouth?
[12:21] {Les} hey take it up with CNBC :)
[12:21] {Threei} I do
[12:21] {Les} lol
[12:21] {Threei} I show you how idiotic that assumption is
[12:21] {Les} sorry vad you misunderstand me...
[12:22] {Les} I know how idiotic that is for CNBC to say
[12:22] {nemo} market looks like going to drop
[12:22] {Les} I was interested in possible market reaction following speech...
[12:22] {dino} 3i, you seem tense
[12:22] {Threei} me? rather like jellyfish
[12:23] {fernp} QID, vad?
[12:23] {Threei} Les... they assume that rally is thanks to Benny, thus they assume that end of his speech means selloff
[12:23] {dino} free fall
[12:23] {Threei} if first assumption is, wrong, doesn't it mean seond is qrong by extention?
[12:23] {Threei} we may sell off but Benny has absolutely nothing to do with it
[12:24] {Les} no. opinion of another old hand like yourself. curious as to your thoughts on the matter.
[12:24] {Les} but stupid of me to ask. trade what you see, not what you think....
[12:24] {Threei} unless he says something of significance, market movements are done with no regard to his speech
[12:24] {Threei} imagine for instance him saying: we are going to hike rates next month
[12:25] {Threei} market drops 500 points in a flash
[12:25] {dino} edu
[12:25] {Les} RIMM 200 ma support at 61.58 on 15 min. lose this support, I will short. next stop 60.73.
[12:26] {dino} talking heads thats all
[12:27] {Les} yes, sorry for wasting space on such idle speculation
[12:27] {Threei} if we reversed, QID is the way to try it on .40 break, fern
[12:27] {Threei} with stop under .35
[12:27] {dino} no worries, just turn the volume off and put on some tunes
[12:28] {fernp} ok Vad

[12:53] {dino} out pwrd .66, +.36
[12:55] {dino} edu stopped -.22
[12:55] {dino} hit/miss day for me
[12:58] {Threei} (US) Fed Chairman Bernanke: Progress is being made in putting a value on toxic assets - Q&A
[12:58] {Threei} - Analyzing systemic risk in the financial system as a whole presents enormous challenges.
[12:58] {Threei} - Banks may be systemically important even if they are not huge firms. Thus making banks smaller is not necessarily a solution to the "too big to fail" issue.
[12:58] {Threei} - Will not have a secure financial system until it is safe to let a large financial firm fail.
[13:00] {Threei} why does one need so many words to say "I have no idea what's happening, what to do and what's coming"
[13:00] {nemo} Greenspan school of public speaking
[13:01] {Threei} yeah but Greenspan looked and sounded like he had a clue
[13:01] {dino} why talk at all
[13:01] {Threei} even though we all know he didn't
[13:01] {nemo} and he was full of shit too
[13:01] {nemo} sorry
[13:01] {fernp} are you still in NABI, Vad?
[13:01] {fernp} or were you stopped when lost .50?
[13:01] {Threei} half in
[13:02] {Threei} stop under .35
[13:02] {Threei} this is new twist:
[13:02] {Threei} Banks may be systemically important even if they are not huge firms. Thus making banks smaller is not necessarily a solution to the "too big to fail" issue.
[13:02] {Threei} this opens whole new slew of possibilities
[13:03] {dino} it is called lobby money
[13:03] {Threei} yes, and it opens new door for voluntarism
[13:04] {Threei} under this pretense they get card blanche to decide at their own discretion who to deem important
[13:05] {fernp} so you didn't rose stop to b/e when 1:1 was reached on NABI
[13:05] {fernp} ?
[13:05] {Threei} no
[13:05] {Threei} this is momo stock
[13:06] {Threei} this is not technical
[13:06] {nemo} where's the momo?
[13:06] {Threei} it either will return or not
[13:06] {magoo} whats entry on NABI again?
[13:06] {fernp} ok, you are the boss :-)
[13:06] {nemo} .51
[13:06] {Threei} I am not aware of particular plac where it goes when it leaves
[13:07] {Threei} oh and btw,
[13:07] {Threei} who appreciated grand scale visual effects and good destruction, go see 2012
[13:08] {Threei} but if you need a plot with any credibility or wit, skip it
[13:08] {fernp} i'll go to watch it
[13:09] {Threei} one big plus vs War of the Worlds - kids are not too anoying
[13:09] {magoo} record box office open i think tho
[13:09] {Threei} 'cause the little girl in that one made me sympathize with aliens that wanted to eat her

[13:13] {nemo} disappeared
[13:19] {Threei} NLST is beyond this universe

[13:19] {magoo} tough tho...it takes the high by .03 cents then falls ,20 cemnts
[13:20] {Threei} oh,it's not a breakout one

[13:38] {Threei} why would you wnat it long
[13:38] {Les} cause I'm bored and looking for a trade?
[13:38] {Les} I know, I know, asking for trouble...
[13:38] {Threei} look for valid setups
[13:39] {Threei} not for something that is against market laws
[13:39] {Les} k
[13:39] {Threei} if you wantd a scalp for instance, WFC .50 break was it
[13:40] {Threei} but RIMM if anything is short
[13:40] {Threei} see?
[13:42] {magoo} we in anything?
[13:43] {nemo} nabi

[13:44] {Threei} 5 cents?
[13:44] {nemo} .06
[13:44] {nemo} bad trading...should have taken the close scalp at lunch time
[13:45] {Les} so HGSI challenging previous high. This a break entry if it triggers?
[13:45] {Threei} not by me
[13:45] {Threei} no colnsolidation

[13:46] {Threei} APOL is istless here mags... bounce soon probably but need life return to it
[13:47] {Threei} momo is very vvery different Les
[13:48] {nemo} why is nabi momo today...looking at chart it gapped up with everything else and has been hanging in a range
[13:48] {Les} can u please define it?
[13:49] {Threei} with everything elsew
[13:49] {Threei} ?
[13:49] {Threei} you see the size of the gap?
[13:50] {Threei} and volume?
[14:00] {Les} vad, can you read anything on this spike in STEC?
[14:00] {dino} ese blood again
[14:01] {Threei} break of 13.40 was valid long
[14:01] {Threei} right now, it's listless
[14:01] {dino} l .99 hl
[14:01] {nemo} long what dino?
[14:02] {Threei} (US) Fed's Fisher: Q3 GDP may be less than 3.5%; Q4 GDP will be positive; goal is the maintain the purchasing power of the USD
[14:02] {Threei} - Unemployment rate will remain 'painfully high' for much longer than is preferred
[14:02] {Threei} - "Extended period" wording creates potential for USD carry trade.
[14:02] {dino} ese
[14:03] {nemo} he left
[14:03] {Threei} rofl
[14:03] {magoo} in despair
[14:03] {Threei} dialog with deaf is kind of challenging dino, eh?
[14:04] {dino} the sysmbol
[14:04] {dino} symbol ese
[14:04] {nemo} I know...yukyukyuk
[14:04] {dino} sssssssssslllllllllllllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaapppppppppppppppppppppp
06[14:04] * nemo deserves it
[14:06] {BillyD} this slow afternoon pace has kept me out of a couple that have worked
[14:07] {Threei} slow pace does make read tough
[14:08] {BillyD} chart setup is good but who knows if get any follow thru w/ mkt help
[14:08] {BillyD} wasn't worth the risk I guess
[14:08] {BillyD} to find out
[14:09] {Les} i made profitable mistake earlier on hgsi, although am reluctant to call it a trade.
[14:09] {Les} shorted - covered with -.20 loss
[14:09] {Threei} lol
[14:09] {Les} doubled down and went long
[14:09] {Threei} then found out you bought and sold?
[14:09] {Les} and forgot about it...
[14:10] {Les} out with net gain +.25
[14:11] {Les} dinner time, putting kids to bed. not time to be trading...
[14:11] {Threei} ugh
[14:12] {Threei} how did I miss RGLD consolidation under .40
[14:12] {magoo} arguing with nemo is how.......
[14:13] {dino} they had quite the move, golds should be short soon, imo
[14:13] {nemo} bs
[14:13] {Threei} not really, I argue with nemo automatically
[14:13] {Threei} I mean, he says something, I argue
[14:13] {Threei} pure reflex
[14:13] {magoo} oh, as in multi-task?
[14:13] {Threei} not a task at all, like breathing
[14:14] {Threei} there is air - you breathe
[14:14] {Threei} there is nemo - you argue
[14:14] {magoo} plus its enjoyable
[14:14] {nemo} sniff
[14:15] {magoo} are u still thhinking about throwing him out of room vad/
[14:15] {magoo} OOPS
[14:15] {Threei} no, I changed to dropping out myself
[14:15] {nemo} mags...then who will he argue with?
[14:15] {Threei} lol
[14:15] {BillyD} lol
[14:16] {nemo} think mags is feeling left out Vad?
[14:17] {Threei} who knows... I've long goiven up on decding his psyche
[14:17] {Threei} decoding
[14:17] {nemo} I got it
[14:25] {magoo} tell u what lately..vad hands out trout like he's paying for them
[14:25] {nemo} hehehehehe
[14:25] {Threei} lol
[14:27] {Threei} this makes me feel much better:
[14:27] {Threei} English were doin' fine til the gramer guys & lexicogigraphers got ahold of it
[14:27] {Threei} (sorry Raven)
[14:27] {BillyD} Vad, is overall volume normally down this much for this time of year
[14:27] {Raven} np
[14:28] {Threei} no, not really Billy
[14:28] {Threei} Oct and Nov are usually good volume months
[14:28] {BillyD} Kind of what I remember
[14:28] {Threei} but, can tyou remember any single year that would see such developments
[14:29] {Threei} huge drop, then just as huge recovery
[14:29] {BillyD} very true
[14:29] {Threei} and ever since Septmeber, slow climb at what seemed to be the end of the rally
[14:29] {dino} lot of people threw in towel w/markets, imo
[14:29] {BillyD} thr gradual grind up
[14:29] {Threei} smell of roasted bear meet becomes unbearable
[14:30] {Threei} ummm... pun not intended
[14:32] {Les} hgsi. 15 min chart. what a short squeeze!
[14:32] {Threei} fooled premature shorts, didn't it
[14:33] {Les} difference between me now and one month ago is that i'd be suffering terribly a month ago...
[14:34] {Threei} would have shorted it and sat on a loss?
[14:34] {dino} out pwrd .77, +.26
[14:34] {Les} yep
[14:35] {Threei} this is the worst thing you can do to yourself...
[14:35] {Les} damn. did that too many times...
[14:35] {Threei} ad one single thing that ir responsible for the most traders put out of business
[14:35] {Les} it's a mantra easy to say but difficult to practice: take the stop, take the stop...
[14:36] {Threei} till certain moment, yes
[14:36] {Threei} then something clicks
[14:36] {Threei} it becomes so ingrained
[14:36] {nemo} yeah...too much pain and suffering
[14:36] {Threei} and a few weeks later you just can't believe you even had any problems with it
[14:37] {Les} I'm not there yet, but it is getting easier
[14:37] {dino} esc hl l .02, stop lod
[14:37] {Les} will stay with paper trades until it becomes automatic
[14:37] {Threei} read the blog article on why we don't keep stops, les?
[14:37] {Threei} if not, please do
[14:37] {Threei} if did, reread
[14:38] {Les} link please
[14:38] {dino} hmmm ibkc
[14:38] {nemo} nabi slipping
[14:38] {Threei} http://www.realitytrader.com/blog/2007/05/stops-why-dont-we-keep-them.html
[14:40] {ilana} 13:36 Threei then something clicks
[14:40] {ilana} i think i got this click today
[14:40] {Threei} good
[14:40] {nemo} stopped pos nabi
[14:40] {ilana} les, it took me 2.5 weeks,
[14:41] {ilana} i hoper there is no way back
[14:41] {ilana} hope
[14:41] {dino} exel
[14:41] {Threei} when you start taking stops as they are hit with no thinking at all, eay and with no hard ffeeling, and forget about them in seconds - this is it
[14:41] {ilana} right on
[14:42] {Threei} a few weeks later look back at the times when you used to hold the loss for days, tortured and unable to think of anything else, and you will be like:
[14:42] {Threei} why did I do that to myself?
[14:43] {ilana} amazing feeling, though
[14:43] {Threei} liberty
[14:43] {ilana} total control in your hands
[14:43] {Threei} being in control, yes
[14:43] {Threei} no more this overwhelming ofrce above you
[14:43] {Threei} force
[14:43] {dino} missed stops eat at your soul
[14:44] {Threei} wow... that's deep
[14:44] {ilana} yup, no stop's slave anymore
06[14:44] * Threei goes back to navel-gazing
[14:47] {Threei} RIMM
[14:47] {Threei} looks like done dropping
[14:47] {Threei} recovery is better chance now
[14:47] {ilana} just was typing" missed .45 entry" lol
[14:47] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM .55 break
[14:48] {nemo} stop under .45?
[14:48] {Threei} this pullback will show the stop placement
[14:48] {Threei} hopefull it's .45, yes
[14:48] {nemo} old resistance becomes new support
[14:48] {Threei} invalidation is under .40
[14:48] {Threei} oh come on... I can't argue with that
[14:49] {Threei} what are you doing to me?
[14:49] {nemo} O.k. argue with this. "Vad is a very nice fellow."
[14:49] {Threei} with this I can
[14:49] {nemo} invalimudated
[14:49] {Threei} yes
[14:49] {Threei} I am far from nice
[14:49] {nemo} damn convincingly too
[14:49] {Threei} nice and I do not exchange postcards on Christmas
[14:53] {magoo} we in anything boss?
[14:54] {Threei} no, unless you are holding NABI
[14:54] {ilana} shorted RIMM on this pullback, +0.1
[14:55] {magoo} nah
[14:58] {Threei} (US) Fed's Fisher: Carry trade usually "ends in tears"; expects MBS/UST spreads to widen as Fed purchases wind down
[14:58] {Threei} - Recovery depends on growth in corporate revenues.
[14:58] {Threei} whose tears?
[15:01] {dino} croc tears
[15:03] {nemo} amzn weak today
[15:04] {Les} covered a hgsi short at .65, +.20
[15:04] {dino} gj
[15:05] {ilana} gj Les
[15:05] {dino} cf
[15:06] {ilana} RIMM 0.34 break, long?
[15:07] {nemo} volume not increasing on this rise
[15:07] {ilana} exactly
[15:07] {dino} lny hl s .00
[15:07] {ilana} according to TTR method
[15:08] {nemo} kinda, see that pullback, volume should be lower than previous low, but there's been no increase in volume on the return to the swing high
[15:09] {nemo} see what I mean, no buying strength
[15:09] {ilana} yup
[15:10] {Les} hgsi rolling over again
[15:10] {nemo} now market tanking ilana, so volume pick up with market help could be a break
[15:11] {nemo} coul also be a short below .22
[15:14] {Threei} US Postal Service: Will not raise prices on first class, standard mail, or other dominant market products in 2010
[15:14] {Threei} - The 2010 plan, which estimates a revenue decline of $2.2 billion, a net loss of $7.8 billion, cost reductions of more than $3.5 billion and a reduction in mail volume of 11 billion pieces for the year, is based on the assumption that there will be no change in the number of delivery days per week, and no change in the current retiree health benefits payment schedule.
[15:15] {Threei} Short Setup: HGSI .60 break
[15:15] {Threei} if stays below .70
[15:16] {Les} haha didn't see your call and I took the trade. am I finally in sync?
[15:16] {Les} for once
06[15:17] * nemo slaps Les around a bit with a large daytrading course

[15:22] {nemo} another low volume day
[15:23] {Threei} in my world nod is expression of eternal love
06[15:23] * nemo slaps nemo around a bit with a large IDIOT stick!!!
[15:23] {Threei} shot in the head equals "well, you are mistaken about that"
[15:23] {magoo} meridith is tanking the markets here
[15:24] {nemo} what she say?
[15:24] {Threei} Meredith Whitney: "Have not been this bearish in a year", reiterates that banks will raise capital again - CNBC
[15:24] {Threei} - believes banks will go back to tangible book value
[15:24] {Threei} - feels that Bernanke did not say enough in speech today; including how to exit programs even though they are almost finished
[15:24] {Threei} - comments that does not feel that banks are well capitalized; feels there is another leg to go in commercial real estate
[15:24] {Threei} - notes that most banks assume that housing prices will not go down from here, and that unemployment will reach 10% in 2010 and have already reached that leve
[15:25] {BillyD} I agree with her on commercial real estate downward at least here in AZ
[15:26] {Les} bear flag on HIG?
[15:27] {Threei} most likely
[15:27] {Les} lets kill it
[15:27] {nemo} sell 500k shares, that should do it
[15:27] {Threei} lol
[15:28] {Threei} if market reverses down again, .30 break
[15:28] {Threei} sorry, .20
[15:28] {fernp} LNCR
[15:28] {Threei} LNCR Weisel Raised LNCR to Overweight from Market Weight (timing uncertain)
[15:28] {Threei} lol

[15:35] {fernp} ahh!, sorry
[15:35] {Threei} had it held around .50, I would take it

[15:39] {nemo} and then the increase in volume as it broke that level
[15:39] {nemo} excuse me pullback into support

[15:46] {Threei} 1:1, yes
[15:46] {BillyD} ok, was thinking of shorting into this bounce
[15:46] {Threei} fern caused a few too many bruises on me as a chief scalper
[15:46] {BillyD} but not sure
[15:46] {Threei} I stopped fighting the destiny
[15:47] {Threei} if one is born as scalper - one should scalp
[15:47] {fernp} scalp is the safer way to trade this market :-)
[15:47] {nemo} yeah, and use a rusty knife
[15:47] {dino} nothing wrong w/scalping
[15:47] {nemo} don't forget to salt it
[15:47] {dino} whatever pays the bills
[15:48] {Threei} ok, the world ends
[15:48] {Threei} and long before 2012
[15:48] {Threei} I mean, all my trading life I defended scalping as trading style against zillion of disbelievers

[15:50] {nemo} Wouldn't have it any other way :)
[15:50] {nemo} should I go to my cave?
[15:50] {Threei} the title of captain obvious is the last I have ever since fern overtook as a scalper
[15:50] {Threei} and it's under attack from each and every angle as it is
[15:50] {nemo} oh...sorry, I forgot how close to your heart that is

Nov 13 2009

[11:32] {ese} mentally drained here....i have to admit........stark reminder that full control can be taken away at any moment when doing this......kind of a wake up call
[11:33] {Threei} you know how they say it's a bad taste to say TOLD YA SO?
[11:33] {Threei} I am not a stranger to bad taste, so:

[11:33] {Threei} I warned you a few times, one of this instances will end badly
[11:33] {dino} ese, perhaps a shot of tequilla?

[11:38] {Threei} - Xinhuanet reports Health Ministry reported two Chinese people have been reported dead after they received vaccination against the A/H1N1 influenza, but said experts have "ruled out the possibility that the patient's sudden death was the result of immediate allergic reactions to the flu vaccines."

[11:43] {Threei} trading desk call is sacred

[11:45] {Threei} by real I mean, continuing for hours, not the kind that is over in 10-15 minutes
[11:45] {ese} k
[11:45] {Threei} and I know of no cases when one couldn't get through on the phone

[12:13] {lasertrev} Note to Laser users: Make sure you have latest version of Laser (3.354). You can look under "help" and "about laser" to find out. Use quote servers 10-20. They are doing upgrades on 1-9 and may be a little slower.

[12:17] {nemo} you're kidding?
[12:18] {Threei} I don't know what is more amazing - consistency of him being wriong or his insistence on continuing his calls

[12:28] {Threei} I just can't win, can I
[12:29] {nemo} put the shackles back on Vad
[12:29] {Threei} US Market Update
[12:29] {Threei} Dow +83 S&P +7 NASDAQ +13 - Investors are ignoring some fairly concerning US economic data and pushing US equities back toward yesterday's opening levels and fresh highs for the year. The Sept deficit registered a larger than expected $36.5B representing an 18% jump over Aug which was the fastest rise since early 1999. Imports surged at the quickest monthly rate in nearly 15 years. Goldman Sachs warned that the trade data suggested a likely downward revision to Q3 GDP. The preliminary Reuters/University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for November came in at 66.0, down from 70.6 in October and below expectations. Regardless stocks prices are being bid up while Greenback has resumed a defensive stance as risk appetite returns.

[12:58] {BillyD} double checking
[12:58] {Threei} I like that photo they gave first prize to... but my golden sunset was better

[13:03] {strider} what a comedian:)
[13:04] {strider} you missed your calling vad
[13:04] {Threei} just trying to eschew that dreaded ambiguity completely
[13:04] {strider} bless you
[13:04] {strider} (eschew!)
[13:04] {Threei} and yes, I checked strider... but Seinfield was not frightened to be honest... and even advised me to keep my day job
[13:05] {strider} you know he turned down 5 million an episode to keep doing the TV show?
[13:05] {patience} hopefully he didn't invest with maddoff
[13:06] {strider} yes, well...there's that.
[13:06] {Threei} probably not, or we would already see Seinfield Returns
[13:06] {strider} It's in syndication anyway.
[13:06] {dino} he's on curb your enthusiam w/larry davide, the whole cast is on it
[13:07] {strider} You guys have to keep my up on TV stuff. I watch 1 pop TV show....Survivor.

[13:09] {dino} that russell is cracking me up
[13:09] {dino} best survivor character yet
[13:09] {strider} What a scumbag.
[13:11] {dino} you have to outwit, i think he's doing it. it's a game, sort of like risk
[13:12] {strider} He thought he could tell the same lie to everybody, and nobody would talk...he's a dummy. He's history next week.
[13:12] {strider} GENZ support at 50, methinks.
[13:13] {nemo} what does vad say about thinking?

[13:14] {strider} GENZ support at 50, me no things.
[13:14] {nemo} there...
[13:14] {strider} thinks
[13:14] {nemo} vwap right there too
[13:14] {strider} GENZ support at 50, whether or not methinks.
[13:14] {strider} How
[13:14] {strider} Hows that}
[13:14] {dino} sorl? report looks good
[13:15] {nemo} what? and what?
[13:16] {fernp} BRCM breaking 29
[13:19] {strider} what indicator tracks buying/selling intraday for individual stocks?
[13:19] {Threei} since we have an inmactive market at the moment, let me elaborate a little on that non-thinking thingy,
[13:20] {Threei} lest you think I am a complete neanderthal
[13:20] {nemo} I've seen the drag marks on your knuckles
[13:20] {BillyD} just when you think it is safe :)
[13:20] {BillyD} nemo is always there
[13:21] {Threei} I know I can always count on him
[13:21] {nemo} :)
[13:21] {Threei} it's not that thinking in and of it itself is bad,
[13:21] {Threei} it's just things should be done in their time and place
[13:22] {Threei} and thinking during executing the trade is last things you want to do,
[13:22] {Threei} and thinking during searching for and evaluating the trade is better be minimized as muc as possible.
[13:22] {Threei} The way to do it is this:
[13:23] {Threei} just as an athlete prepares in advance and xecutes standard reactions on standard situations during event itself,
[13:23] {Threei} same for martial arts fighter,
[13:23] {Threei} same for pilot, surgeon etc etc
[13:23] {Threei} trader should do his think in advance as muchas possible
[13:24] {Threei} collecting a set of as many as possible standard situations.
[13:24] {Threei} That's when the possibility of thinkless trading opens
[13:24] {Threei} You simply set in motion a set of pre-canned reactions on pre-analyzed situations.
[13:25] {Threei} Recognizable situation triggers prepared reaction.
[13:25] {Threei} See setup - take setup
[13:25] {Threei} Direct eye-finger interaction with no brain inbetween.
[13:25] {Threei} Fastest, least subjected to second0guessing, to emotional influences
[13:26] {Threei} and we all know how we strive to eschew those
[13:26] {dino} sorl hl l .20 stop .93
[13:26] {nemo} so, given my physiological deficits, I should be a great trader....mmmhhhhh
[13:26] {Threei} and you know ehn I said eschew I am done talking seriously and returned to my normal "mockj everything under the sun" style
[13:26] {BillyD} lol
[13:28] {BillyD} Vad, how much is feel part of the setup versus technical chart, etc
[13:28] {Threei} you are getting there nemo
[13:28] {Threei} I see more and more often you spotting setups and executing them with no hesitation
[13:28] {nemo} I mean...lack of physical brain
[13:29] {Threei} just recall yourself a year ago and compare
[13:29] {nemo} oh yeah...huge...I didn't know what I didn't know
[13:29] {Threei} I am sorry I can't evaluate how lack of physical brain affects anyone - I'd have to have one myself
[13:29] {nemo} Now, it's just getting to act on what I see
[13:29] {nemo} like rimm 7 minutes ago at .62
[13:29] {Threei} Billy... here is the problem:
[13:29] {Threei} feel plays big role, BUT
[13:30] {Threei} where does feel itself come?
[13:30] {Threei} from zillion of charts seen, analyzed and played before
[13:30] {nemo} gut comes from experience
[13:30] {Threei} so it's not a contradtiction really,
[13:30] {Threei} no gut comes from too much beer
[13:30] {nemo} ese is a great musician from talent and 45 years of practice
[13:31] {BillyD} Vad, do you incorporate pace, volume, personality as part of feel
[13:31] {Threei} so it's not a contradtiction really - it's just that feel is the same chart readin experience condensed from a few millions of those into lighteningly fast recognition of what you already saw
[13:31] {Threei} of course I do
[13:32] {BillyD} or is it automatic like you said previous
[13:32] {Threei} it's both
[13:32] {Threei} it's part of read overall,
[13:32] {BillyD} ok, that is what I meant
[13:32] {Threei} and it's incorporated in that automatic response
[13:32] {Threei} have a loo at SBUX please
[13:32] {dino} i prefer "gut"
[13:33] {fernp} you konw im watching it
[13:33] {Threei} 30 min ago or so I said, too narrow, nothing to count on
[13:33] {Threei} how long did it take me to come to this conclusion?
[13:33] {nemo} 5 seconds?
[13:33] {Threei} I'd say anywhere from 1/250 to 1/500 of second
[13:33] {nemo} whoa
[13:34] {Threei} it's just one glance
[13:34] {Threei} chart: nice formation,. very narrow for the whole day, extremely narrow for hours,
[13:35] {Threei} level 2: very thick, and this I also know about SBUX without even looking,
[13:35] {Threei} T&S: flat calm pace
[13:35] {Threei} market: relatively strong but stalleds
[13:35] {Threei} stalled
[13:35] {Threei} daily chart: somewhere in 52 week highs but this I know from the few days of it appearing on the scanner regularly
[13:36] {Threei} moves slowly and steaduly throughout the day - result of looking at a few times over last days,
[13:36] {Threei} today is Friday
[13:36] {Threei} market is so tired of endless up up and up
[13:36] {Threei} volume is low and lower every day
[13:37] {Threei} there/.. all the components necessary to decide:
[13:37] {Threei} there is just nothing to get out of it for the day trade
[13:37] {Threei} unless something drastically changes
[13:37] {Threei} news on it, or explosive market movement for instance
[13:37] {Threei} takes long to type it all,
[13:38] {bkhmd} and thanks for typing
[13:38] {Threei} takes fraction of a second to realize
[13:38] {bkhmd} thanks for sharing
[13:38] {bkhmd} and no typos
[13:38] {Threei} seriously?
[13:38] {nemo} whoa, yeah
[13:38] {Threei} wow
[13:38] {Threei} rare occurence
[13:38] {nemo} [13:36] {&Threei} moves slowly and steaduly
[13:38] {bkhmd} i sometimes think ur a russian spy
[13:39] {nemo} nevermind
[13:39] {Threei} lol
[13:39] {bkhmd} u type well at times and change on a dine
[13:39] {Threei} why spy?
[13:39] {Threei} oh
[13:39] {BillyD} thx Vad, good variable clarity on that explanation
[13:39] {Threei} well, you know how to spot a russian spy, right?
[13:39] {dino} jyfukfyk
[13:39] {bkhmd} tell me
[13:39] {Threei} you now why Billy, right?
[13:39] {BillyD} shoot first and ask later
[13:39] {Threei} it's that eschewing and embracing thingy
[13:40] {Threei} two signs bkh
[13:40] {dino} cf drop
[13:40] {BillyD} yes
[13:40] {Threei} 1. russian spy closes one eye when drinks tea
[13:40] {bkhmd} ??
[13:40] {nemo} strider, how's that support
[13:40] {BillyD} what makes your edge not work and what makes it work
[13:40] {strider} It failed.
[13:40] {Threei} atavist habit from russian custom to keep the spoon in the cup
[13:41] {nemo} should give another up
[13:41] {Threei} so the spoon threatens your eye when you take the cup to your mouth
[13:41] {strider} you thinking there?
[13:41] {Threei} and
[13:41] {nemo} this is exactly 50% retracement
[13:41] {Threei} 2. parachute behind his back
[13:42] {strider} So which is worse? Rational thinking, or magical thinking? :)
[13:42] {dino} 10340 and 1120
[13:42] {nemo} what's magical thinking?
[13:42] {dino} thise are the 50% retraces
[13:42] {nemo} eod dino?

[13:48] {Threei} machine gun is magoo's analogy ever since I shared that sound file,
[13:48] {dino} no matter
[13:48] {Threei} especially when you get many partials,
[13:48] {nemo} Not what I meant...
[13:48] {Threei} but in reality it's a camera shutter click
[13:48] {nemo} sounds like "Kaching"
[13:48] {nemo} when trade goes well
[13:49] {nemo} sounds like death when trade goes bad
[13:52] {nemo} aig support @ .60

Nov 12 2009

Nice active day with quite a few calls and good percentage of winning (6 out of 8 or something like that) Major hero of the day was RIMM, quite nicely obeying on both long and short side. Other than that AMD and AIG (both on short side) added a bit to profits.

Session Time: Thu Nov 12 00:00:00 2009

[08:16] {BillyD} GM all
[08:17] {nemo} BD :)
[08:17] {Threei} BLTXX Baltic Dry Bulk Index 5.5% (11th straight gain)
[08:18] {Threei} Good morning
[08:18] {Threei} (US) Preview: Initial Jobless Claims and Continuing Claims due out at 8:30amET
[08:18] {Threei} - Expectations for initial claims are 510K v prior release of 512K (range seen from 495K to 525K) - Continuing claims seen at 5.700M v prior 5.749M (range seen from 5.675M to 5.788M) ***Note: The last reading of initial cliams below 500K was back Jan 2nd 2009
[08:19] {Threei} can yuou believe losing half million jobs every week became kind of norm?
[08:19] {strider} Morning vad. What does the BLTXX tell us?
[08:20] {nemo} yeah...that's why I just want to smack the _____! when they say the trend is down. That's 20 million jobs this year
[08:20] {Threei} this is Baltic Dry Shipping index strider
[08:20] {Threei} DRYS, EGLE are dry shippers for instance
[08:20] {Threei} sometimes they react on this data
[08:21] {strider} k. thanks.
[08:21] {Threei} and overall, shipping trends reflect to a certain degree what's happening with global economy
[08:21] {Threei} as in, if we go down in flames we are not very likely to ship much to each other
[08:23] {nemo} frickin' aig
[08:23] {Threei} (US) Fed's Plosser: Excess reserves can have inflationary effect if they flow into economy too quickly, Strong global economy and weaker US economy means USD will depreciate
[08:23] {Threei} - Need to be aware of Gold, other asset prices and fx levels. - No firm decisions have been made on which exit tools to use and in what order. - Mush easier politically for Fed to begin selling treasuries than MBS - Idea of Fed issuing its own bill is "not good strategy" is not aware of any plans to do so
[08:24] {strider} Barrick shuts hedge book as world gold supply runs out
[08:24] {strider} Global gold production is in terminal decline despite record prices and Herculean efforts by mining companies to discover fresh sources of ore in remote spots, according to the world's top producer Barrick Gold.
[08:25] {Threei} who needs it anyway
[08:29] {Raven} Dentists
[08:29] {Threei} USSR is no more R...
[08:29] {nemo} nah, they use that bonding stuff now Raven
[08:29] {Raven} I just had a gold one installed
[08:29] {Threei} US) INITIAL JOBLESS CLAIMS: 502K V 510KE;
[08:30] {Threei} CONTINUING CLAIMS: 5.631M V 5.700ME
[08:30] {nemo} and you probably fly 1st class too
[08:30] {Raven} I hate flying except on my own wings
[08:30] {nemo} touche
[08:32] {Raven} gold teeth are a tip for the undertaker ...
[08:32] {nemo} love it
[08:32] {Raven} sigh
[08:33] {nemo} wait a minute!
[08:33] {nemo} you've got a beak!
[08:33] {Raven} remain calm
[08:33] {nemo} I'm sorry, obfuscation and prevarication do that to me
[08:34] {Raven} pills prolly available
[08:37] {nemo} so Bloomber Headline "Initial jobless claims in US fall more than estimated to a 10-month low" sheesh
[08:37] {Threei} I guess formally it's true
[08:38] {nemo} yeah, back to the blue pill or the red pill
[08:40] {nemo} hah...another Bloomberg...Foreclosure filings surpass 300k for the 8th consecutive month
[08:40] {Threei} so they have optimist and pessimist on hand
[08:40] {nemo} fair and balanced
[08:40] {Threei} and they write headlines
[08:41] {Threei} reality in nothing, spin is everything
[08:41] {Threei} in = is
[08:41] {nemo} yes comrade
[08:42] {Les} bonjour M & M's
[08:42] {Threei} morning Les
[08:42] {nemo} afternoon les
[08:42] {Threei} do elaborate who of us you labeled as M and who - M
[08:42] {Les} madames et messieurs
[08:42] {nemo} Metro
[08:43] {Les} COMS gonna give us a play today Vad?
[08:43] {Les} or is the HP deal done signed and delivered
[08:44] {Threei} buyout usually nails the price down
[08:44] {Threei} unless there is a concern about it being rejected
[08:44] {Threei} on company of anti-trust commettee
[08:44] {Threei} umm
[08:44] {Threei} let me try again
[08:45] {nemo} don't hurt yourself
[08:45] {Threei} on company or anti-trust committee level
[08:45] {Threei} still wrong but understandable
[08:45] {Threei} lol
[08:46] {Les} ok. seems there was a loser in this deal. BRCD. let's see how the market takes to them today.
[08:46] {Threei} yeah, they were one of candidates
[08:48] {Les} following another traders comments on AIG yesterday
[08:48] {Les} http://ibankcoin.com/chart_addict/2009/11/12/the-good-and-the-bad-volume-follow-through-happy-b-day-ibc/
[08:48] {Les} so descending wedge is enough to send AIG ballistic like that?
[08:48] {Les} is that normal for AIG?
[08:49] {nemo} yep
[08:49] {Threei} there is not much normal as far as AIG is concerned
[08:49] {Threei} AIG and normal do not exchange postcards on Christmas
[08:49] {nemo} it was off it's meds yesterday
[08:49] {nemo} its
[08:51] {Threei} I showed this pattern on AIG last week
[08:51] {Threei} problem with it is, there is no way to tell when it explodes like this
[08:51] {Threei} there is no trigger for the spike
[08:52] {Threei} and it forms like 3-5 of such vedges before one of them works
[08:52] {Threei} it could be second one or 6th
[08:52] {Threei} good luck quesssing
[08:52] {Threei} guessing too
[08:52] {Les} ok. so you can make full time career just watching AIG
[08:52] {Threei} if you find an idiot who will pay you for watching, sure
[08:53] {Les} :D
[08:53] {Les} what is on your list today?
[08:53] {Threei} usual suspects
[08:54] {Les} that title sounds familiar...
[08:54] {Les} great movie
[08:54] {Threei} which reminds me... it's been on my lost to watch again for a while
[08:55] {Threei} list
[08:55] {fernp} Good morning everybody

[08:55] {Les} hola
[08:56] {fernp} buenos dias Les
[08:56] {ese} good morning
[08:57] {Threei} ese :)
[08:57] {Les} morn ese
[08:57] {ese} vad les
[08:59] {Threei} wow
[08:59] {Threei} INTC Halted: news pending (19.84, 0.00, 0.00%) (related AMD DELL )
[08:59] {Threei} SMD explosion
[09:00] {Threei} AMD sorry
[09:00] {Threei} INTC Settles all outstanding legal disputes wiht AMDl wil pay $1.25B (19.84, 0.00, 0.00%) (related AMD )
[09:00] {Threei} weird
[09:00] {Threei} why halt INTC and not AMD for this
[09:01] {Threei} announced a comprehensive agreement to end all outstanding legal disputes between the companies, including antitrust litigation and patent cross license disputes. - agreement ends the legal disputes and enables the companies to focus all of our efforts on product innovation and development. - , AMD and Intel obtain patent rights from a new 5-year cross license agreement, Intel and AMD will give up any claims of breach from the previous license agreement, and Intel will pay AMD $1.25 billion. Intel has also agreed to abide by a set of business practice provisions. As a result, AMD will drop all pending litigation including the case in U.S. District Court in Delaware and two cases pending in Japan. AMD will also withdraw all of its regulatory complaints worldwide. The agreement will be made public in filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
[09:07] {ese} thats a reall good question
[09:08] {ese} short first then go long vad AMD
[09:09] {Threei} dunno... tocc a coin whether it retreats or breaks
[09:09] {Threei} very persistent buying
[09:09] {Threei} tocc= toss
[09:11] {Threei} volume will be enormous in AMD today
[09:11] {Threei} like half of NYSE, lol
[09:12] {Threei} and it looks more and more like break
[09:12] {larisa} gm :)
[09:12] {Threei} larisa :)
[09:12] {larisa} vad :)
[09:12] {lasertrev} morning
[09:13] {Threei} trev :)
[09:15] {Threei} here comes break
[09:16] {nemo} Trev dcc
[09:16] {Threei} and another
[09:16] {Threei} even if unsuccessful in terms of big run, new highs are enough to shake out premature shorts
[09:16] {Threei} which is to confirm one more time: do not ashort hot runner
[09:17] {magoo} morning
[09:17] {Threei} as if yet another confirmation was needed
[09:17] {Threei} morning mags
[09:17] {Threei} {AMD} let me reiterate: do NOT short hot runner
[09:18] {bkhmd} good morning all
[09:18] {Threei} bk :)
[09:18] {ese} bk
[09:18] {Les} afternoon bk
[09:19] {dino} gm all
[09:19] {bkhmd} les where are u sir
[09:19] {Threei} dino :)
[09:19] {bkhmd} must be across the pond
[09:19] {Les} land of chocolate and cheese
[09:20] {Threei} yeah, we have a few of those defending the old continent against us barbarians
[09:20] {bkhmd} lol
[09:20] {Les} Barbarians being Canadians or Ukrainians?
[09:20] {Threei} both actually
[09:20] {Threei} lol
[09:20] {dino} cheese, one of my favorite things
[09:20] {Les} :)
[09:22] {Les} useless fact: "Swiss" cheese with holes in it is from small German speaking town in Central Swiss - Emmentaler
[09:22] {Les} many, many cheeses to be found in situ...
[09:23] {larisa} why do we talk about cheese if we can talk chocolate?? :)
[09:23] {Threei} lol
[09:24] {Les} there is special chocolate train just up the road from my place. takes you to Nestle factory
[09:24] {Les} I see what you mean about Fed policy affecting others...
[09:25] {Les} World banks prop up dollar. Central banks say they've been snapping up dollars this week in an effort to stem its slide and hold down the value of their currencies. While Geithner continues to pay lip service to maintaining a strong dollar, Washington has yet to take any concrete steps to stop the bleeding, which is beneficial to U.S. exports and tourism.
[09:25] {Threei} AMD volume is likely to be overwhelming at the open
[09:25] {ese} lots of Ukranian jokes use to fly around Saskatchewan..."did you hear the one about the ukranian who spent 4 days in sears looking for wheels for a mis carriage?
[09:25] {Threei} lol
[09:25] {ese} thought that manual labour was the president of Mexico
[09:25] {Les} haha
[09:26] {ese} put iodine on his paycheck because he got a cut in pay
[09:26] {Threei} it's like elephant in the room Les... you may hate the proximity but can you ignore it for too long?
[09:26] {ese} took a roll of toilet paper to a crap game
[09:27] {ese} and so on and so on.......good times....my best friend was ukranian as a kid
[09:27] {Threei} rofl
[09:27] {Threei} then he ceased to be ukrainian?
[09:29] {Les} so you looking for setup in RIMM Vad?
[09:29] {ese} we played in the Regina Police Boys Band together
[09:30] {nemo} you mean musical instruments ese?
[09:30] {Threei} market is open in case you haven;t noticed
[09:30] {ese} ha ha ....yes
[09:30] {nemo} watchin rimm
[09:30] {Les} sorry, not RIMM, AMD..
[09:30] {Threei} yes
[09:30] {dino} brcd
[09:31] {Threei} BRCD is hurt by COMS buyout
[09:32] {dino} hurt pretty bad
[09:32] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .60 break half lot
[09:32] {Threei} stop above .80
[09:32] {nemo} quotes frozen again
[09:33] {larisa} fine here
[09:33] {Threei} RIMM 1:1
[09:33] {nemo} must be my system
[09:33] {dino} cedc
[09:33] {Threei} covered .35
[09:33] {BillyD} good one, missed it
[09:34] {magoo} missed
[09:34] {fernp} missed RIMM my level2 was frozen
[09:34] {tomg} ty vad
[09:34] {Threei} :)
[09:34] {nemo} yeah, that's what happened to me fern
[09:34] {Les} nice work. my colour recognition failed there. Was looking to buy until you said stop above .80
[09:34] {Threei} hmmm
[09:34] {Threei} word short didn't clue you in?
[09:35] {Les} no coffee excuse, had plenty of that today...
[09:35] {Les} my bad
[09:36] {Les} so receding volume in AMD suggests healthy consolidation?
[09:36] {Threei} so far looks this way
[09:37] {Threei} Long Setup: AMD .65 if stays above .50
[09:38] {Threei} available for shot btw
[09:38] {nemo} break's .50 looking short
[09:38] {Threei} .50 break can be a short trigger
[09:39] {fernp} with stop above .65?
[09:39] {Threei} formally yes
[09:39] {dino} ttek
[09:39] {Threei} I'd prefer .60...
[09:39] {Threei} OK here it goes
[09:40] {fernp} covered .40 ty
[09:40] {Threei} :)
[09:40] {Threei} whoa
[09:40] {Threei} OPTR
[09:40] {Threei} what the deuce
[09:41] {dino} stewie
[09:41] {fernp} m: Optimer Pharm upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer
[09:42] {Threei} OPTR UPDATE: Oppenheimer Raised OPTR to Outperform from Market Perform, price target: $16
[09:42] {Threei} AIG Reportedly considering drawing from a Fed credit line to repay some commercial paper
[09:42] {Threei} - notes $5.8B in commercial paper that is due in Jan (37.11, +0.36, 0.98%)
[09:42] {fernp} can I short again AMD li loses .40?
[09:43] {fernp} if
[09:43] {Threei} if holding under .50
[09:43] {Threei} JDSU???
[09:43] {Threei} got cramerized yesterday
[09:43] {Threei} guess who is on TV
[09:44] {fernp} then I wont short
[09:44] {bkhmd} Melissa Lee?
[09:44] {bkhmd} lol
[09:44] {bkhmd} my favorire
[09:44] {Threei} you wish
[09:45] {Threei} RIMM formed .40 - .60 range
[09:45] {Threei} looks to me like upside break is more likely
[09:46] {Les} would it qualify as an inverse H&S?
[09:48] {Threei} 1:1
[09:48] {BillyD} so was that RIMM mention an official call
[09:48] {BillyD} I wasn't sure
[09:48] {Les} ah you were playing it?
[09:48] {Threei} gosh
[09:49] {Threei} explain to me someone why does it matter?
[09:49] {Threei} I show you formation, you like it - you take it
[09:49] {Threei} you don't - you skip
[09:49] {larisa} cause i have alert on official ones :)
[09:49] {BillyD} fair enough
[09:50] {Threei} on inverse H&S:
[09:51] {Threei} formally yes but valid patterns like this usually shgould be formed over longer time than just a few bars
[09:51] {dino} cedc hl l .00
[09:51] {Threei} I wouldn't put too muct faith in 5-10 min formation when we are talking about such multicomponent one as H&S
[09:51] {Threei} or C&H
[09:51] {Threei} simple range forming, sure
[09:51] {Les} ok
[09:52] {fernp} CBST breakout on daily
[09:52] {Threei} CBST Hearing takeover chatter circulating
[09:52] {Threei} - NVS rumored as potential acquirer (17.63, +0.19, 1.09%) (related NVS )
[09:52] {fernp} tks
[09:52] {Threei} they just find stoxcks near highs and start rumors
[09:53] {BillyD} lol
[09:53] {Threei} so they have additional benefits of scanners going off all the world
[09:54] {dino} ttek hl l .00

[10:50] {dino} but of course, the govt will decide if allowed to make $
[10:50] {Threei} well, benefit of hindsight sure helps with clairvoyance, doesn't it {G}

[11:05] {Les} $ making a run for it.
[11:06] {dino} coordinated buy effort announced this a.m.
[11:07] {Threei} so, can we conclude that it's a very smart policy by powers that be

[14:26] {BillyD} do you guys use title companies dino?
[14:26] {dino} yes. ironically, gmac is paying for our search in the deal
[14:27] {BillyD} as long as they eat the 40K it's ok
[14:27] {dino} oh, they are, no doubt
[14:28] {BillyD} if GMAC foreclosed already all other positions should be wiped out
[14:28] {dino} whatsd funny is i would've paid more, but they thought all that was owed was 165k
[14:28] {BillyD} yeah, worlks great for you
[14:29] {dino} :)
[14:32] {dino} brb
[14:35] {Threei} market is till locked in narrow range, but it's time to start defining our bias for the end of the day
[14:36] {nemo} if you said -30 it'll stay that way
[14:36] {Threei} almost
[14:36] {Threei} with little bounce
[14:37] {nemo} yeah, given it's been basically slithering along the bottom, that would make sense
[14:37] {Threei} but if this is indeed what happens, there will be stocks that overreact
[14:37] {nemo} rimm
[14:38] {nemo} might want to watch mon, it overreacte around 2:00
[14:38] {Threei} not sure
[14:38] {Threei} RIMM doesn't feel right to me
[14:38] {nemo} I think it's possibly a late short
[14:38] {Threei} but if dino's right and we are headed for -100, I would keep RIMM as short candidate
06[14:38] * nemo talks as if he has a clue
[14:40] {bkhmd} third time at that support level
[14:41] {bkhmd} lower highs
[14:41] {dino} it wasn't me, the coin answered
[14:44] {Threei} see how willing RIMM is on the downside?
[14:44] {nemo} y
[14:44] {dino} cvs out +.03
[14:44] {bkhmd} like my first
[14:44] {bkhmd} well i better not
[14:44] {nemo} bahhhhh
[14:44] {nemo} yeah, janitor will get pissed
[14:49] {Threei} looks like dino's coin was right
[14:49] {dino} lots of time
[14:49] {bkhmd} mised his coin toss what was it
[14:50] {bkhmd} -100?
[14:50] {nemo} gotta go c u L8tr
[14:50] {bkhmd} later nemo
[14:50] {Threei} 14:17] {dino} -100+
[14:50] {Threei} take care nemo
[14:51] {fernp} bye nemo
[14:52] {dino} cya nemo
[14:53] {BillyD} if not for RIMM to .20 it looks ripe off 63 short
[14:54] {Threei} I would really prefer a bounce first
[14:54] {bkhmd} could base here a bit yea?
[14:55] {BillyD} what is bounce logic Vad
[14:56] {BillyD} or bounce to stay under .20
[14:56] {Threei} two versions
[14:56] {Threei} one is bounce into .40 area
[14:57] {Threei} where I'd hunt for setup
[14:57] {Threei} another is plain breakjdown here
[14:57] {Threei} and bounce is needed just to establish resistance for stop placement
[14:57] {Threei} so far .20
[14:57] {Threei} but not very pronounced
[14:57] {BillyD} ok
[14:58] {bkhmd} thanks for explanation vad
[14:58] {Threei} I am still hesitant here...
[14:58] {BillyD} yes, I did not enter
[14:58] {Threei} no clean setup
[14:58] {BillyD} potential trap
[14:58] {Threei} honestly, if this is it - I will prefer to miss this play
[15:04] {Threei} oh well, this one got away
[15:08] {Threei} no pattern to go of still but this is something to work with
[15:08] {Threei} we have bounce into resistance
[15:09] {Threei} let's see if something shapes up to give us trigger and stop
06[15:10] * dawg slaps Threei around a bit with a large trout
[15:11] {Threei} what was that for
[15:11] {Threei} what did I do
[15:11] {Threei} sniff sniff
[15:12] {dino} close to 100
[15:16] {BillyD} RIMM H&S formed
[15:17] {fernp} Good evening everybody. see you all tomorrow.
[15:17] {Threei} take care fern
[15:17] {BillyD} bye fern
[15:17] {bkhmd} later fern
[15:19] {dino} wynn up $16 in 8 trade days
[15:20] {dino} cf nonstop, and i scalped it
[15:21] {bkhmd} Vad
[15:22] {Threei} yes sir
[15:22] {bkhmd} do ur majic dance make Rimm set up i need a scalp
[15:22] {Threei} gosh... why?
[15:22] {Threei} we had quite a few today
[15:22] {bkhmd} i missed first two good ones
[15:24] {Threei} my problem here is:
[15:24] {Threei} it makes its move within the range too vertically
[15:24] {Threei} so the range is too wide for a nice tightly controlled stop
[15:25] {bkhmd} yep
[15:25] {Threei} and if I try to play a break, I have to do it at the end of sharp move
[15:25] {Threei} and I hate that
[15:25] {bkhmd} and loks like it wants to bounce
[15:25] {bkhmd} then gets chopped down
[15:31] {Threei} OK
[15:31] {Threei} market is dropping, RIMM near resistabnce
[15:31] {Threei} if you need this badly, shiort it with stop above 63
[15:31] {Threei} first weakness from here
[15:33] {BillyD} hard to discern it here for me
[15:33] {Threei} yes
[15:34] {Threei} no clearly defined trigger
[15:34] {Threei} that's why I can't come up with normal call
[15:34] {BillyD} totally guessing
[15:34] {Threei} and instead waffle somwthing like
[15:34] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM whereever and pray
[15:34] {BillyD} lol
[15:34] {magoo} in lol
[15:35] {BillyD} too bad Larisa gone for that one
[15:35] {magoo} our father who art in heaven.......
[15:35] {Threei} magoo... now, keep your srtop just above Who knows whewre, and aim to take priofit at Wherevr you want
[15:36] {magoo} to precise
[15:36] {BillyD} because you are gonna anyway
[15:36] {bkhmd} i took .4 cents and chicken out
[15:36] {dino} -100
[15:37] {Threei} 4 cents?
[15:37] {Threei} come on
[15:37] {Threei} what was your risk??
[15:37] {Threei} 6-7 cents?
[15:37] {Threei} who cares about such stop
[15:37] {bkhmd} 5 cents
[15:37] {Threei} let it trade, let the market work
[15:37] {dino} -300 more to go before month over
[15:37] {Threei} look at it
[15:38] {dino} target 9900
[15:38] {Threei} that was what Alan Farley would call "risk-based setup"
[15:38] {Threei} I can't remember it was me who picked up this expression from him or other way around
[15:39] {Threei} so just in case will ghive credit to him :)
[15:39] {Threei} kind of:
[15:39] {bkhmd} i dont recal reading that in his book lol so maybe ur term
[15:39] {Threei} no clear trade, but risk is so small, why not
[15:39] {bkhmd} thats what I seen grab 5 cents and run
[15:41] {Threei} I don't know, I'd d it differently a little
[15:41] {bkhmd} scared money here
[15:41] {Threei} risk is so small, who cares if I have to take such a tight stop, be thankful market gave such a riskless entry and try to milk it
[15:46] {BillyD} BK..read mark Douglas "Trading in the Zone" about anything can happen
[15:46] {Threei} no shorting RIMM this time
[15:46] {BillyD} if you haven't already
[15:46] {Threei} it has changed
[15:46] {bkhmd} no i have not read it
[15:47] {Threei} if it breaks 63 with market bouncing, maybe a long scalp
[15:47] {Threei} but no short
[15:47] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM 63 break if stays above .90
[15:47] {Threei} let's make it official
[15:48] {dino} bd; that was the best line i ever learned
[15:48] {Threei} who is John Galt?
[15:48] {BillyD} it's the foundation as Douglas says
[15:49] {dino} "hate that question"
[15:49] {Threei} hehe
[15:50] {Threei} make up your mind RIMM
[15:51] {Threei} we are running out of time as Jack Bauer would say
[15:51] {BillyD} not in here, but you got mkt help
[15:51] {Threei} doesn't look encouraging
[15:52] {Threei} okay
[15:52] {BillyD} stock changes its tune all day long

Nov 11 2009

A lot of setups got invalidated before ever triggering, and some were uncertain which made some calls discretionary, but wins solidly outnumbered stops, with couple bigger trades on RIMM and BCRX.
Session Time: Wed Nov 11 00:00:00 2009

Over half of the 11,000 human spinal cord injuries that are sustained in the U.S. annually are in the cervical region.

[11:00] {BillyD} on the one before that cross call as well?
[11:00] {Threei} that was the general idea
[11:00] {BillyD} ok
[11:00] {Threei} exact call came later as a .40 crossback
[11:03] {ese} ignore this, it's for my brother in toronto who reads vads trading room everyday...."JOIN THE ROOM YA GOOF!!!!!!!, WHATS YOUR PROBLEM???????"......that should surprise him today
[11:04] {magoo} well..its hard to justify the monthly cost
[11:04] {ese} there....thats should do it
[11:04] {Threei} communicating through the room with one's brother is ultimate definition of "not a keepr to my brother"
[11:05] {ese} lol
[11:05] {nemo} or of a "pain in the derriere"

[11:09] {Les} potentional RIMM short coming below 64?
[11:10] {Threei} too sharo drop into support
[11:10] {Threei} sharp
[11:10] {Les} hate seeing setups that fail like that
[11:10] {dptl} .
[11:11] {Threei} .20 break could be a setup
[11:11] {Threei} 64 break is a trap
[11:12] {Les} really? Machiavelli would love this game
[11:13] {Threei} stock drops into support 20 vents in one gasp
[11:13] {Threei} do you short at the end of such spike?
[11:14] {Les} of course not. but if there was no big drop? would this gap still be a trap?
[11:14] {Threei} hmm?
[11:14] {Threei} I need translation
[11:15] {Les} sigh
[11:15] {Threei} if there was no big drop but instead a tight consolidation above support, then yes, break qwould be a short setup
[11:15] {Les} never mind
[11:15] {Les} ok
[11:15] {Threei} what you mean by gap in this case I don't know
[11:15] {nemo} rim becoming safer short

[11:24] {Threei} I'd start looking around .50
[11:25] {strider} SYPR

This contract is in support of the DoDs modernization effort to replace the aging KYK-13 key fill device. The product was designed and will be produced at the Sypris Electronics facility located in Tampa, Florida.
[11:25] {Threei} - contract is for a five-year period with a not-to-exceed value of $200M. The IDIQ contract is the U.S. Governments vehicle for its Services and Agencies to order the RASKL and product ancillaries
[11:28] {Threei} RIMM looks ready for a boucne with any market help
[11:28] {BillyD} .15?
[11:28] {Threei} yes
[11:28] {Threei} but keep an eye on NASDAQ
[11:28] {Threei} it's a make or break condition for this trade
[11:29] {Threei} with any market bounce, RIMM should be easy 64.40 - .50
[11:29] {BillyD} understand, I am not a fan of depending on the next move of index
[11:29] {strider} ESI downgrade dino
[11:29] {strider} or is it ese?:)

[11:35] {Threei} stop to under .15 RIMM
[11:35] {Threei} on a stronger day I'd go for 1/4 at 1:2 but today is feeble
[11:36] {Threei} come here my pot with meat... I am waiting at .45
[11:37] {BillyD} Vad, did you see the Naz confirm on RIMM or did you take it because RIMM triggered
[11:37] {Threei} .out .44
[11:37] {Threei} not going to risk the whole trade because of 1 cent
[11:38] {Threei} it triggered and NASDAQ upticked just a tad at the moment,
[11:38] {Threei} and most of all, both charts looked bounce-ready
[11:38] {Threei} +.29 seciond ha;f
[11:38] {Threei} second half
[11:39] {Threei} sheesh
[11:39] {BillyD} ok, do you look at NAZ chart to uptick or last sale.......because my charts always couple seconds behind it seems
[11:39] {Threei} if you make 4 erros in word "bread" you get "beer"
[11:39] {ese} L colm avg P .84
[11:39] {Threei} chart is 1 min
[11:39] {Threei} of course it will be late
[11:40] {Threei} I have both chart and T&S close enough to see them at the same time
[11:40] {Threei} wave or green in situation where chart is ready for ticking over resistance kind of confirms the break before chart actually shows it
[11:40] {BillyD} ah, maybe I need T&S for the Naz as well as L2?
[11:41] {Threei} I don't have L2 for it
[11:41] {Threei} only chart and T&S
[11:41] {BillyD} for Naz right?
[11:41] {Threei} yes
[11:41] {BillyD} ok, I will try it
[11:41] {Threei} NQ
[11:41] {Threei} also you can use QQQQ just as well
[11:41] {Threei} and no need for level 2 on it either
[11:41] {BillyD} Q is what I use
[11:41] {Threei} it's so thick, what is it L2 shows you on it

[11:48] {bkhmd} I have serious mixed thoughts on issue of course nothing justifies his actions but I asked my wife who is not from this country how she would feel if she was asked to fight against ehr country not a good thought he should have nver joined the military here in usa
[11:49] {nemo} funny...want it investigated as terorist act...duh...but in the military, it's known as treason...He'll have a date with the firing squad
[11:50] {nemo} or, get the stuffing kicked out of him on a regular basis at Leavenworth
[11:50] {Threei} another sharp downtick in the market with no reason
[11:50] {bkhmd} death is too good for him
[11:50] {nemo} agreed
[11:51] {Threei} hah
[11:51] {Threei} interesting:
[11:51] {bkhmd} gld bounce?
[11:51] {Threei} NDAQ Moody's upgrades ratings to Baa3 from Ba1; outlook Stable
[11:51] {Threei} but
[11:51] {Threei} NYX Moody's put ratings on review for downgrade (currently rated A2)
[11:52] {strider} stopped COLM .56
[11:52] {Threei} not sure about GLD...
[11:52] {Threei} I am more inclined to short it but having hard time fonding entry
[11:53] {Threei} it tyopped out under .40 while I was hesitant to short it far below .50
[11:53] {bkhmd} does look weak now
[11:55] {bkhmd} do you see support at .89 for GLD?
[11:56] {Threei} .89?
[11:56] {Threei} why?
[11:56] {bkhmd} 108.89
[11:56] {Threei} kind of strange place for support, no?
[11:56] {Threei} what do see there?
[11:57] {bkhmd} chart indicates pivot point but I am new to looking at pivot points
[11:57] {bkhmd} 109.36 another pivot
[11:57] {Threei} weird
[11:58] {Threei} pivot people may have better insight but I don't see how .89 can be pivot on it
[11:58] {Threei} nemo is pivot man
[11:58] {Threei} larisa is pivot girl
[11:58] {nemo} it is a calculated point, but it is only a line to look at should price approach it. I see support at 109

[12:04] {BillyD} H&S
[12:05] {bkhmd} fade the rimm breakout attempt?
[12:05] {Threei} may be just the ticket to short it Billy
[12:05] {Threei} no bk, breakdown
[12:06] {Threei} a bit too far from there now
[12:06] {bkhmd} yea thts what i meant did I use wrong term?
[12:06] {BillyD} yeah, two headed frak now
[12:06] {Threei} lol
[12:06] {Threei} kind of bkh
[12:07] {Threei} shorting 109 break would be garden variety short
[12:07] {Threei} just your standard breakdown
[12:07] {BillyD} sweet setup
[12:08] {Threei} to fade breakout you need a breakout to fade... and I don't see anything breakoutish on it :)
[12:08] {Threei} .10 break could be qulified I guess... with some stretch
[12:09] {bkhmd} ahhh thanks I was thinking the open
[12:09] {bkhmd} making another run at the open
[12:13] {magoo} we are gonna be shut down any minute
[12:13] {magoo} exciting times :)

[12:25] {nemo} vad...spy and qs look like they want to pop
[12:25] {ese} why thank you...thank you thank you very much
[12:26] {bkhmd} ese or elvis?
[12:31] {Threei} BCRX is trying to find footing...
[12:31] {BillyD} lol...was just noticing
[12:32] {Threei} if market starts strong recovery, it's a momo candidate
[12:32] {BillyD} just where to enter is key
[12:32] {Threei} well, .10 has nice juicy offer to break
[12:32] {Threei} too bad this time RIMM got away
[12:32] {BillyD} very true
[12:32] {Threei} never saw a good entry on it
[12:33] {BillyD} stops too wide at .60
[12:35] {ese} ese bk
[12:38] {BillyD} you take BCRX Vad
[12:38] {bkhmd} i tried i didnt fill
[12:38] {Threei} yes... I am bored
[12:38] {BillyD} lol
[12:38] {fernp} .10?
[12:38] {Threei} yeah
[12:39] {bkhmd} i tried .11 blew right through it for me
[12:39] {Threei} I do it differently a little in such cases, bkh
[12:39] {fernp} stop under .05 ?
[12:39] {Threei} under 12 for me
[12:39] {Threei} when I have this huge offer for a stock to eat through,
[12:40] {Threei} I try to grab last shares of this same offer
[12:40] {Threei} it starts scrolling very fast usually if going to break
[12:40] {bkhmd} yep thats what happened i was trying to take the break of .10
[12:41] {Threei} do you click buy as offer disappears?
[12:41] {bkhmd} i had a limit order in to buy at .11
[12:41] {Threei} yes... I mean physically
[12:41] {bkhmd} nope
[12:41] {Threei} offer disappears, you push buy?
[12:42] {bkhmd} no i didnt do it that way i had the order in as a stop limit stop was .10 if hits fill at .11
[12:42] {Threei} ok... that's not my way at all
[12:42] {Threei} what broker btw?
[12:43] {bkhmd} Trade Station
[12:43] {Threei} oh ok
[12:43] {Threei} forget good fills altogether
[12:43] {Threei} it's just not a daytrading broker speed wise
[12:43] {bkhmd} I may switch
[12:43] {bkhmd} second time missed a fill
[12:44] {Threei} for Laser users who misses this kind of fills,
[12:44] {BillyD} ASIA interesting
[12:44] {Threei} little trick I taught magoo sometime ago
[12:44] {Threei} and he has been abusing his to death
[12:44] {Threei} just make sure you read it till the end lest you hurt yourself
[12:45] {Threei} if you feel a stock is going to scroll through your buy limit fast and there is a good chance to miss it,
[12:45] {Threei} do this:
[12:45] {Threei} click in level 2 on your price to which you are willing to chase,
[12:45] {Threei} hover cursor over Buy button,
[12:46] {Threei} as trigger level becomes best offer, depress mouse button
[12:46] {Threei} do not let go yet,
[12:46] {Threei} keep it depressed,
[12:46] {Threei} and let go only when you want your order to go in
[12:46] {Threei} It save you time for click
[12:46] {bkhmd} thanks vad
[12:46] {Threei} BUT
[12:47] {Threei} if stock downticks instead of breaking
[12:47] {Threei} and you don't want to send your order
[12:47] {Threei} do not forget to move cursor away from Buy button beforfe letting go
[12:47] {larisa} wow
[12:47] {larisa} lol
[12:47] {nemo} you taught him that a year ago
[12:48] {Threei} yeah... and he became freakishly fast, lol
[12:48] {Threei} larisa... don't tell me you didn't know this trick
[12:48] {nemo} yeah...and be careful you don't hit the market buy
[12:49] {Threei} of course you can always gain even more speed by using keystrokes instead of mouse
[12:49] {Threei} but there is even more room for error
[12:49] {Threei} so be careful with that
[12:53] {larisa} if you get download data delayed just a bit this exact second, all your mouse moving saved ms will do nothing IMO. With magoo connection it is interesting, how he can gain from this trick :) but if it works for someone, it works :)
[12:53] {Threei} well, it gives you additional boost of speed all things being equal
[12:54] {Threei} and magoo connection wasn't always like this, lol
[12:54] {larisa} I do not understand how it does, but I do not want to argue :)
[12:55] {strider} DRYS up today
[12:55] {Threei} easy... less time to release the button than to push and release
[12:55] {BillyD} it gives another variable to the edge of more confirmation for the trigger before entering
[12:55] {ese} definitely
[12:55] {Threei} I grew to hate the way DRYS trades
[12:56] {BillyD} lol....I've always hated it
[12:56] {strider} I'm in it for longer term...I really don't care how it trades as long as it trades up:)
[12:57] {Threei} well, then you were already grown-up while I was reading texbooks and chasing skirts
[12:57] {Threei} and it's been a good while since I read textbooks...
[13:04] {dawg} .)
[13:05] {fernp} I also hate the way DRYS trades... and I hate RIMM, GLD, BCRX, and many more, But what can I tell you about AGAM, I have no words to describe how I hate AGAM. lol
[13:05] {Threei} rofl
[13:05] {Threei} now, that's a good one
[13:05] {BillyD} lol....very good
[13:05] {Threei} and btw... RIMM prepares for 65 break
[13:08] {nemo} runs into major resistance around 65.14
[13:09] {BillyD} gonna take ROIMM if holds .90 and takes 65 Vad?
[13:10] {Threei} shhh, don't speak too loud now: BCRX is up whole 5, yes 5 cents
[13:10] {Threei} yes Billy
[13:10] {Threei} unless market reverses down at the same time
[13:10] {Threei} maybe .85 is better stop level
[13:10] {BillyD} thx
[13:10] {fernp} BCRX 1:1 for me
[13:10] {fernp} ty Vad
[13:10] {Threei} lol
[13:11] {Threei} you are welcome
[13:12] {Les} alright, the cook has been released from the kitchen. you gotta moment to talk about AONE Vad?
[13:13] {Threei} what about it?
[13:13] {ese} the egle looks like it's landed....still long at .12
[13:13] {Threei} it happily does nothing
[13:13] {Les} resistance was confirmed at 50 ma, which failed today.
[13:13] {Threei} BCRX gaining perkiness
[13:14] {ese} you talking about egle les
[13:14] {Les} I wanted to short as it failed to penetrate resistance 2nd time round and just let it run
[13:14] {Les} no AONE
[13:14] {Threei} at what price?
[13:14] {Threei} BCRX 1:1
[13:14] {Threei} half out for me
[13:14] {Threei} scalpers be happy
[13:15] {strider} Was BCRX a call?
[13:15] {Threei} at what price Les?
[13:15] {Les} I was considering a .77 short trigger earlier. But this is not doeable in your trading system?
[13:15] {fernp} gotta go. Have a good evening every. see u all tomorrow
[13:15] {Les} bye fern
[13:15] {Threei} strider, kind of discretionary... discussion in the course of which I declared intention to enter
[13:16] {Threei} take care fern
[13:16] {fernp} every = everybody :)
[13:16] {Les} at 10:23 am
[13:16] {strider} OK. missed it.
[13:17] {Threei} I like the idea itself, Les,
[13:17] {Threei} not sure I see exact entry trigger there
[13:17] {Les} that's the point. Not your type of trigger
[13:17] {Threei} 1:2 BCRX, out
[13:17] {Threei} too sharp spike
[13:18] {Les} I am still watching twitter list of a couple of daytraders and using 60 min. charts for trading decisions.
[13:19] {Les} wondering if I have to split my trading into two camps. An independent daytrade & Vad system trade camp.
[13:20] {Threei} if you do, keep us informed about stats comparison
[13:20] {Threei} I may switch if they look convisingly {G}
[13:20] {Les} :)
[13:21] {Les} with IB I'm not catching your faster trades unfortunately
[13:21] {Les} Laser may make all the difference. I dunno
[13:21] {strider} probably not.
[13:27] {Threei} market has no gas in it
[13:27] {Threei} BCRX however holding well
[13:27] {BillyD} yeah, killed our RIMM play
[13:28] {Threei} good tradeoff as far as I am concerned: 2K BCRX for 20 cents vs half lot RIMM stop for 15
[13:29] {Les} 2k - 2000 shares?
[13:29] {Threei} yeah
[13:29] {Threei} would have taken more if not this weird day with no conviction
[13:38] {Threei} if market decides to break down here, surely GLD should follow?
[13:39] {Threei} .45 is a stop
[13:39] {Threei} you feel it will, just grab a few shares here
[13:40] {Threei} US Treasury Sec Geithner: Calling for a 'market oriented' FX rates - Asia media comments
[13:40] {Threei} people in Asia must be irritated as hell listening to patronizing teaching coming form US administration
[13:41] {Threei} especially form Timmy who failed misreably trying to handle Asian financial crisis in 90 as IMF guy
[13:42] {Les} well how many Asian leaders listen to him now?
[13:42] {Les} "0"
[13:42] {Threei} as far as teaching goes, 0
[13:42] {Threei} but he also has executive powers now
[13:42] {Threei} so as far as policies go, they do listen
[13:43] {Les} listen to what? "The United States Federal Reserve supports a strong dollar"....?
[13:44] {Les} dollar to 70?
[13:44] {Threei} no, that's words
[13:44] {Threei} there are steps
[13:44] {Threei} GLD 1:1 btw
[13:45] {Threei} and if certain steps are taken, they'll echo in entire world
[13:45] {Threei} whether they are right ones to take or wrong
[13:45] {BillyD} ty GLD
[13:45] {Threei} sure thing
[13:46] {Threei} you don't seriously suggest that Fed and Treasury actions do not impact whole world, do you
[13:48] {Les} No, just doubtful that the Fed is going to do other than let USD slide to new lows to inflate its way out.
[13:48] {Les} So if I was world leader, what do I do in watching USD slide?
[13:48] {Threei} as if they could do something about that
[13:49] {Les} hmm was gonna say tighten money supply but...
[13:49] {Threei} well yes
[13:50] {Les} that has its own evils
[13:50] {Threei} hoke rates
[13:50] {Threei} hike
[13:50] {nemo} tank market
[13:50] {Les} that too
[13:50] {Les} yep
[13:50] {Threei} withdraw money supply
[13:50] {nemo} raise financing costs
[13:50] {nemo} kill exports
[13:50] {Threei} start sucking liquidity out of market
[13:50] {Threei} and kill everything
[13:50] {Threei} economy, markets
[13:50] {Threei} leftovers of employment
[13:51] {Threei} so, they are between Scilla and Harybda
[13:51] {Threei} or however you spell that
[13:51] {Les} so what policy choice do they have then, that world leaders should be interested to hear?
[13:51] {Threei} they don't have GOOD policy choices
[13:51] {Threei} it doesn't mean they don't have any
[13:52] {Threei} and they will undertake something
[13:52] {Threei} as they already did over last year - year and half
[13:52] {nemo} dogfight at these lves
[13:52] {nemo} levels
[13:52] {Threei} you are looking at it wrong Les...
[13:53] {Threei} think of it in let's say Afghanistan terms
[13:53] {Threei} there are no good choices there
[13:53] {Threei} they are all bad
[13:53] {Threei} but some of them will be made
[13:53] {Threei} and implemenmted
[13:53] {Threei} and they will impact a lot of lives
[13:53] {Threei} see my point?
[13:53] {Les} sure
[13:53] {Threei} same with financial policies
[13:53] {strider} Vad, AONE?
[13:54] {Threei} if anything it's a short to me
[13:54] {strider} good idea on break?
[13:54] {Threei} I am not delighted by it either way,
[13:54] {strider} k
[13:54] {Threei} but if I had to trade it, I'd take short
[13:54] {Threei} on .80 break
[13:54] {Threei} I don't like the width of the stop
[13:55] {Threei} no proounced resistance other than 17
[13:55] {strider} yeah
[13:55] {Threei} ideally though, this thing could give us a reasonable play
[13:55] {Threei} if bounced, stayed under .90 and slid back to .80
[13:56] {Threei} then this break could have been taken with stop above .90
[13:56] {Threei} another way is to take fewer shares on .80 break with stop above 17
[13:57] {BillyD} can't short it
[13:57] {Threei} really
[13:57] {strider} yep. no shorts.
[13:57] {BillyD} yup
[13:57] {Threei} crap is so useless, lol
[13:57] {nemo} no shorts
[13:57] {strider} in laser
[13:58] {BillyD} lol
[13:58] {Threei} it was shirtable on its first IPO day
[13:58] {Threei} shortable
[13:58] {Threei} but not now
[13:58] {BillyD} they change daily
[13:58] {strider} lost its shirt, I guess.

[14:39] {Threei} if drops sharply into 36.60 - .70 area, will be much easier to enter
[14:39] {magoo} might not drop
[14:39] {Threei} as "just a momo, enter wherever and it will work anyway" - no
[14:42] {Threei} let's see if RIMM obliges us once again
[14:42] {Threei} same idea, dive closer to .50
[14:42] {Threei} and bounce for scalpers
[14:43] {Threei} don't enter on price alone
[14:43] {Threei} let's see if we get right action
[14:43] {strider} volume or futs?
[14:44] {Threei} everything
[14:48] {Threei} much better momo now AIG
[14:48] {Threei} 38 38-50 is imminent it feels
[14:48] {dino} flr hl l .70
[14:48] {dino} stop lod
[14:48] {magoo} in 37
[14:49] {Threei} 37.99
[14:49] {Threei} lol
[14:50] {Threei} can I say forst target hit or you will hold me responsible for 1 cent miss?
[14:50] {Threei} first
[14:50] {Les} in .80
[14:52] {BillyD} BCRX maybe ready again
[14:53] {BillyD} any read Vad
[14:53] {Threei} I don't like how it acts on breaks
[14:53] {Threei} it's a good player off pullbacks
[14:53] {BillyD} ok
[14:53] {Threei} and if I were a bit more patient, we would try to get it on this drop to 12.10
[14:54] {Threei} which was our entry last time around,
[14:54] {Threei} provided nice support now
[14:54] {Threei} was a natural area to look for reentry
[14:55] {Threei} should bounce off .40
[14:55] {Threei} AIG that is
[15:00] {Threei} .50 recross
[15:00] {Threei} stop under .40
[15:02] {Threei} takes too long
[15:02] {dino} shaw hl l .50, stop lod
[15:02] {Threei} no go
[15:02] {BillyD} out
[15:04] {patience} goodness...i'm up $5.05 on my kinross trade so far....i've got to learn to trade in thousands of shares like Ese, not hundreds
[15:06] {dino} gj
[15:08] {nemo} 10's of thousands patience
[15:08] {patience} with your bank account, sure nemo
[15:08] {nemo} make your money on the ecn rebate
[15:08] {nemo} no...ese's bank account
[15:08] {patience} better yet, both
[15:08] {patience} :)
[15:09] {Threei} you'll need dp then
[15:09] {Threei} to drink with ese until he is oblivious
[15:09] {Threei} and gives you his login
[15:09] {nemo} shouldn't take long
[15:10] {BillyD} AIG no bounce
[15:10] {nemo} see market
[15:10] {BillyD} yeah]
[15:18] {Threei} Billy, have a look at BCRX
[15:18] {Threei} break entry would have been a trap
[15:19] {Threei} {--- at the risk of dislocating shoulder, pats himself on the back
[15:19] {BillyD} yeah, I saw that....I stayed away because you were right....it is a pullback stock
06[15:21] * BillyD pats Vad on the back for BCRX
[15:22] {nemo} cya tomorrow
[15:23] {BillyD} bye nemo
[15:25] {Threei} take care nemo
[15:25] {BillyD} RIMM near 65 again
[15:26] {dino} cya nemo
[15:28] {Les} TOL consolidating for another break?
[15:29] {dino} for whom the bell....
[15:32] {Threei} it forms what you can call a bull flag
[15:34] {Threei} watch volume,
[15:34] {Threei} you want to see it stalling and volume p;ractically disappearing
[15:34] {Threei} then reversing and gaining volume
[15:36] {Threei} see these last few downticks on increasing volume?
[15:36] {Threei} they negate an idea of bull flag
[15:37] {Les} ok.
[15:38] {Les} bill's new commentary is up and running with a star rating system
[15:41] {dino} cramer getting giddy. contra indicator imo
[15:43] {Threei} lol... guys is incredible
[15:44] {Threei} wasn;t his "now we drop to 9500" comment what practically ended pullback?
[15:44] {bkhmd} 5 minutes ago he is bragging a 200% return 100% guarantee
[15:44] {bkhmd} lol
[15:45] {Threei} ummm
[15:46] {dino} yes, he said 9k before 10k end of oct
[15:47] {Threei} heh
[15:49] {strider} DRYS
[15:50] {dino} wets
[15:50] {Threei} AIG dropped just where I wanted it... but we have no time for decent play
[15:50] {patience} hmmm.....evidently Kinross doesn't know how big my daughter's cell phone bill is this month
[15:51] {Threei} and last minutes are even more dangerous on it
[15:51] {magoo} a lot of time
[15:51] {magoo} last 10 minutes can make your week
[15:51] {dino} out shaw +.03

Nov 10 2009

After computer crash kept me away yesterday, I was extra-careful today - 5 calls, 4 wins, no runners, just scalps. Market didn't inspire for much more either spending most of the day locked in narrow range.

Session Time: Tue Nov 10 00:00:00 2009

[07:04] {BillyD} morning Vad
[07:05] {nemo} hey billyd! :)
[07:05] {BillyD} nemoooooooo
[07:05] {Threei} Good morning!
[07:05] {Threei} welcome back Billy
[07:05] {BillyD} ty, good to see you all
[07:05] {nemo} oh oh...you can see me?
[07:08] {nemo} why aig up 3$
[07:09] {BillyD} dunno
[07:09] {Threei} 5:52:49 PM
[07:09] {Threei} American International Group, Inc Moodys maintains negative outlook and current A3 ratings; says company "Should be" able to repay government loan
[07:09] {Threei} - Moodys expects that AIG should be able to repay the US government's senior secured loan and most or all of the US government's preferred stock, if the company's operations and financial markets further stabilize.
[07:09] {Threei} - Moodys added that the company's Q3 results show that its core insurance business is stabilizing.
[07:09] {Threei} **Note: The US government has invested about $121B into AIG.
[07:09] {Threei} - The government is authorized to provide up to $182B in assistance to the company.
[07:09] {Threei} this is the only thing I see
[07:10] {nemo} so there's a big "if" and it's from Moody's who were part and parcel to the ratings fraud that helped cause the debacle...I can sleep well at night
[07:10] {Les} so if it makes for some good scalps in AIG today, bring it on.
[07:10] {Les} gm
[07:11] {Threei} les :)
[07:11] {strider} He's alive!
[07:11] {strider} Vad:)

[07:13] {Threei} but yeah, I'd recommend before hitting entyer to read and think: whether it's something janitor mi8ght have to sweep
[07:13] {Threei} BLTXX Baltic Dry Bulk Index rises just under 4% (9th straight gain)
[07:14] {nemo} well, it's an improvement, kinda'...haven't done anything like that in months, and it was arguably marginally abhorrent
[07:14] {Threei} let's call it improvement in your terms
[07:14] {Threei} just to keep things in perspective
[07:14] {nemo} yes...eqzaktly
[07:17] {Les} watching BZH. Got some airtime on Bloomberg today
[07:18] {Threei} BZH Reports Q4 ex items $0.87 v -$1.24e (unclear if comp), R $377M v $338Me; New orders, backlog fall notably
[07:18] {Threei} Intends to file Form S-3 Universal Shelf registration statement

However, the Company is not pursuing any particular offering under the registration at this time.

[07:41] {patience} i like it
[07:44] {Les} difference between BNN and CNN? One's business related and other is political. Vad, you keep an eye on breaking political stories?

[08:51] {strider} PAAS
[08:51] {Threei} here is the only thing I see that may be AMZN problem:
[08:52] {Threei} Sunday, November 08, 2009 8:56:30 PM
[08:52] {Threei} (US) A key Supreme Court ruling is nearing which could impact industries including software - Press
[08:52] {Threei} - On Monday, the court will examine what types of inventions should be eligible for a patent.
[08:52] {Threei} - The case could undermine the legal protections for software.
[08:52] {Threei} - If the Supreme Court favors the position of the US Patent Office, it could ban patents on processes and methods of doing business, such as online shipping techniques, medical diagnostic tests and procedures for executing financial trades.
[08:52] {strider} STEC moving up
[08:52] {Threei} quite a stretch, but there is nothing else that would even include the symbol
[08:52] {Threei} Nevada reports Sept casino rev $911M, -8.9% y/y; Las Vegas strip revenue $506M, -3.6% y/y (related MGM LVS PENN MPEL BYD WYNN MNTG BYI )
[08:55] {ese} stec sure has taken a hair cut ST
[08:55] {strider} Indeed.
[08:55] {fernp} WFC pulling back
[08:55] {strider} Rumor: STEC Inc moves higher on design win speculation :theflyonthewall
[08:56] {nemo} crissakes, stec probably moving higher because it fell so far
[08:56] {strider} MYGN trying to do something
[08:57] {Threei} HGSI...
[08:58] {Threei} .80 break, for fast momo players only
[08:58] {Threei} not against the market of course, but let's use this market pullback to see how well HGSI holding
[08:59] {Threei} AIG sells off hard
[08:59] {Threei} *NOV IBD/TIPP ECONOMIC OPTIMISIM INDEX: 47.9 V 49.0E

[09:04] {ese} stopped .56 -.10
[09:05] {Les} tried to short aig at .42 no fill.
[09:06] {Les} have to leave lightening quick trades to Laser me thinks
[09:06] {Threei} (US) Fed's Yellen: Fed needs to provide accommodation to support job growth; inflation likely to go lower rather than higher
[09:06] {Threei} - Housing market has stabilized, foreclosures could put fresh pressure on home prices
[09:06] {Threei} - Unemployment could stay higher for years to come
[09:06] {fernp} DRYS pathetic
[09:06] {Threei} Les... I am not sure I understand what you are doing
[09:07] {nemo} well...you think he understands? :)
[09:07] {Threei} your HIG trade was against every rule in the book
[09:07] {Les} :P
[09:07] {strider} TEVA

[09:08] {nemo} hgsi..damn
[09:08] {Threei} ?
[09:08] {magoo} actually, AIG is a bounce candidate

[09:10] {magoo} aapl too
[09:10] {magoo} same setup[
[09:10] {dino} cvs l .57
[09:10] {Threei} the best scenario for AIG would be a quick dive under .50, for double bottom
[09:11] {dino} rocking
[09:11] {Threei} HGSI, pullback close to .70 is an entry idea
[09:12] {ese} out flr .85 +.30
[09:14] {Les} H&S forming on RIMM?

[09:17] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .80 break half lot
[09:17] {strider} in
[09:17] {fernp} stop above 63?
[09:17] {Threei} for day traders
[09:18] {Threei} hard core scalpers can keep it .95

[09:19] {ese} anyone of you lot take that hgsi..........nice one
[09:19] {Threei} reinforced by staying put while market tried to return to high
[09:19] {strider} stopped rimm
[09:20] {Threei} no ese, couldn't find entry
[09:20] {Threei} now it pulls back to where I wanted it
[09:20] {Threei} stop under .60
[09:20] {Threei} strider... not sure I understand
[09:21] {Threei} if it was scalp, why not traking profit, and if it was a day trade - why stop if resistance at 63 is not broken
[09:21] {strider} shorted at .80 stopped at .90
[09:21] {BillyD} Vad, you in HGSI
[09:21] {ese} stec just hangin around .60......come on.....get at it
[09:21] {Threei} yes billy, .71
[09:22] {Threei} strider, if stop at .90, you had over 1:1
[09:22] {strider} did the best I could
[09:22] {Threei} but why not take scalp if you play it with scalping stop size?
[09:23] {Threei} there must be alignment between your risk and reward
[09:23] {strider} you're right, vad.
[09:23] {ese} flr tanking again dino
06[09:23] * Threei slaps strider around a bit with a large Master Profit Plan
[09:23] {Threei} double bottom RIMM, with 63 break as confirmation
[09:23] {Threei} missed it
[09:24] {dino} watching for db on it

[09:26] {Threei} you know why dino?
[09:26] {nemo} here it comes
[09:26] {dino} no
[09:26] {Threei} because you just don't expect a good joke from nemo
[09:26] {dino} lol
[09:27] {Threei} and I have to say, it's a third good one from him in just as many weeks
[09:28] {Threei} I may have to rethink my opinion on his sense of humor if he keeps it up till, say New Year
[09:28] {Threei} oh come on HGSI, just a few more cents
[09:28] {Threei} good boy
[09:28] {Threei} 1;1
[09:28] {dino} esc hl l .53

[09:29] {Threei} scalpers take profit

[09:31] {Threei} second half is trailed to under .70
[09:31] {nemo} now you have an H&S on hgsi
[09:31] {Threei} nah
[09:31] {Threei} too narrow reange
[09:31] {Threei} I prefer this fpormation to be much more pronounced
[09:32] {nemo} so the left shoulder is a little impaired
[09:32] {strider} inverse c&h STEC
[09:32] {Threei} otherwise you can construct it in any accidental oscillation within narrow range
[09:32] {Threei} do this funny exercise to see what I mean
[09:33] {Threei} find any stock consolidating in narrow range, let's say 10-15 cents
[09:33] {Threei} blow up the scale of the chart
[09:33] {dino} esc out .80, +
[09:33] {Threei} and look at consolidation range trying to find patterns in it
[09:33] {Threei} you will see everything
[09:33] {Threei} C&H, H&S, whatever
[09:33] {nemo} yeah
[09:33] {Threei} and they all won't mean squat
[09:34] {dino} .27

[09:34] {dino} too many mice on my desk, +.27 hitting them while typing
[09:35] {strider} you need a cat, dino

[09:35] {nemo} hgsi might be setting up for a short
[09:35] {ese} dino...stalking flr again at .50
[09:36] {fernp} missed HGSI, I think I was trading RIMM and forgot it... don't remember

06[09:37] * Threei renames the room into Alzheimer Galore
[09:37] {nemo} well, so much for the Saudi threat to increase production...oil up a buck again and dollar crushed
[09:37] {nemo} reminds me of a James Bond character
[09:38] {dino} dropping
[09:38] {dino} dxd l .95
[09:38] {Threei} done with HGSI second half
[09:38] {ese} i still think though that stec is good for a swing trade for a couple of points.....vads capitulation bar 4 days ago is a tell tale sign
[09:38] {Threei} MTXX Heairng shares moving higher following continued sale of Zicam as OTC (4.37, +0.24, 5.81%)

[09:39] {Threei} - VIX index -1.3% to just over 22.50
[09:40] {Threei} not sure I understand this MTXX news
[09:41] {Threei} Zicam is allowed to sell by FDA again?
[09:41] {BillyD} Vad, look at EWBC short off .94
[09:41] {Threei} 'cause is yes, it should be at 10-15 in a blink of eye
[09:42] {Threei} .92 break would be a new low for EWBC
[09:42] {Les} false rumour. MTXX dropping as quickly as it rose
[09:42] {Threei} I'd prefer to short it into bounce
[09:42] {BillyD} ok, in already here
[09:43] {Threei} 13.05 resistance for stop placement then
[09:43] {BillyD} yes
[09:43] {Threei} so far so good\, 3 out of 4

[09:45] {fernp} gj Billy
[09:45] {nemo} hgsi forming tight range
[09:45] {Threei} tempted by AIG short idea
[09:46] {Threei} bounce closer to .50 would get me in
[09:46] {nemo} yeah, 37 support from yesterday
[09:46] {Threei} no bounce...
[09:46] {Threei} no biting into breakdown
[09:47] {ese} flr drifting
[09:47] {Threei} AIG is a murderer on this kind of entries 9 times out of 10
[09:47] {nemo} so...just pick the 10th
[09:47] {Threei} I am not hnting for that 1 risking to be stopped on 9
[09:47] {nemo} hgsi short
[09:49] {fernp} HIG is on loews

[09:51] {dino} out tol -.20
[09:51] {Threei} I never called RIMM here
[09:51] {Les} I know. RIMM dropping to what in your opinion
[09:51] {Threei} I've no idea
[09:51] {Threei} I don't think in these terms Les
[09:52] {Threei} this is not my trading ap;proach at all
[09:52] {dino} out dxd .07, +.12
[09:52] {nemo} aig db?
[09:52] {Threei} I doubt it
[09:53] {Threei} AIG tends to explode upward in this kind of situations more often than not
[09:53] {nemo} is said db not dbi
[09:53] {BillyD} nice HGSI read nemo
[09:53] {nemo} ty...vad ignored me...sniff
[09:54] {Threei} hey, my gentliness and softness go just so far
[09:54] {nemo} yeah...i understand when it comes to me
[09:54] {Threei} there you go - this is how AIG short on .20 breakdown would have failed
[09:54] {nemo} I said DB=double bottom not short
[09:55] {Threei} oh
06[09:55] * nemo slaps Threei around a bit with a large READING GLASSES!!!
[09:55] {Threei} yeah... getting old... sniff sniff
[09:55] {strider} long PAAS .35 stop .29
[09:55] {nemo} rimm might be long here
[09:56] {Threei} OK, watching AIG for some kind of short formation here
[09:57] {Threei} nearest resistance ,is .65
[09:57] {Threei} if .50 is broken that is
[09:57] {Threei} need some support to form
[09:57] {Threei} to give us trigger
[09:57] {Threei} .40 seems to be it
[09:57] {Threei} Short Setup: AIG .40 break
[09:57] {Threei} stop for scalpers above .50
[09:58] {Threei} for daytraders above .65

[10:08] {Threei} yes but it never broke .40 again, and proceeded to break .50 instead
[10:08] {nemo} I know you'd like to short Rimm into a pull back, but...
[10:09] {magoo} TREV DCC when u can
[10:09] {BillyD} got it, thought you meant to short intop the bounce
[10:09] {Threei} sometimes it's the way,
[10:09] {BillyD} right
[10:09] {Threei} but with AIG, you always have to give a bit to its natural volatility
[10:09] {magoo} tech issue TREV-a-rino:)

[10:58] {Threei} Fed should be monitoring asset prices for signs of a bubble - comments to reporters
[10:58] {Threei} - Fed has an important role in overseeing banks
[10:59] {fernp} Vad, when are you going to post all the photos you made yesterday?

[11:00] {Threei} got just one or two left that I uploaded for someone

[11:18] {strider} fitb selloff

[12:23] {Threei} take care ese
[12:23] {BillyD} bye ese
[12:23] {nemo} cya dude
[12:24] {ese} cya vad have a great rest of the day.....i'm still long stec .20 we'll see what happens
[12:24] {ese} dude3
[12:24] {ese} opps dude
[12:25] {Threei} (US) Fed's Rosengren: Fed has the tools it needs to tighten monetary policy, it is just a question of timing
[12:26] {Threei} not at the point where policy tightening is required (related EUR/USD )
[12:27] {nemo} yeah...you believe him?
[12:27] {Threei} I do
[12:27] {Threei} in this particular case at least
[12:27] {nemo} Of course, he is from the government, and he's here to help
[12:27] {Threei} they really have tools to tighten, why not\
[12:27] {Threei} they assign rate
[12:28] {Threei} and it's really a matter of timing
[12:28] {Threei} what I do question is:
[12:28] {Threei} 1. whether they have good sense of timing
[12:28] {Threei} 2. whether good timing on this is even possible
[12:29] {Threei} and 3. whenever they do it, what kind of consequences it is going to have
[12:29] {Les} spy at low of day
[12:30] {Threei} it all would be fine if economy really recovered, became scorching hot and rate hikes would become possible and easily tolerated
[12:30] {Threei} as it is, major danger is that they might find themselves being forced to hike rates
[12:30] {Threei} befofe economy is strong enough to handle it
[12:30] {nemo} yeah, depending on auction results
[12:31] {Threei} Preview Treasury's $25B 10-year note auction results due out just after 1PM ET
[12:31] {Threei} - $2B increase from the Aug auction
[12:31] {Threei} - Aug bid-to-cover ratio 2.48 with an average of 2.39 over the last 3 auctions
[12:31] {Threei} - indirect bidders took 45.7% of competitive bids at last auction with 20.9% alloted at the high
[12:31] {Threei} - the when issued yield is trading roughly in line with cash market at 3.46%
[12:31] {nemo} that's funny...I mention auction and you come up with that
[12:32] {Threei} this preview is usually posted 30 min before
[12:32] {Threei} so you just mentioned it in time
[12:32] {Threei} but these auctions is a mystery to me
[12:32] {nemo} the synchronicity

[12:37] {Threei} andf I don't HATE them, too much honor
[12:37] {Threei} I don't consider them credible
[12:37] {nemo} alright, indifferent

[12:53] {nemo} LISTEN....
[12:54] {Threei} come on Les, it's fun
[12:54] {nemo} I'm Captain Obnoxious around here....and don't forget it!
[12:54] {Threei} market spike
[12:55] {Threei} no news that I see... probably repositining before the auction
[12:56] {Les} sorry for any offence given
[12:57] {Les} I painfully remember playing FOMC meeting. I assume auction time is no play zone as well?
[12:57] {nemo} wfc moving up
[12:57] {BillyD} Vad, you cover any GLD at .70?
[12:57] {Threei} auctions are less volatile
[12:57] {BillyD} I did half
[12:58] {Threei} .71 billy, didn't get .70
[12:58] {nemo} tlt and tbt tend' to move a bit Les
[13:00] {Les} IO is making new highs.
[13:01] {Threei} *TREASURY'S $25B 10-YEAR NOTE AUCTION DRAWS 3.47%; BID-TO-COVER RATIO: 2.81 V 2.49 PRIOR AND 2.43 OVER THE LAST 3 AUCTIONS
[13:01] {Threei} indirect bidders take 47.3% of competitive bids
[13:01] {Threei} - 82.49% alotted at the high
[13:01] {dino} demand is strong
[13:03] {Les} yet no market reaction. Are the machines trading each other today?
[13:03] {Les} 2 days light vol...
[13:03] {dino} y
[13:03] {nemo} jeez...aig trading by appointment
[13:04] {dino} wall at .oo ash
[13:04] {Threei} it usually does that rught before exploding
[13:07] {strider} Got a serious question, Vad, I need your comments.
[13:08] {strider} I'm having trouble with the 1:1 RISK/REWARD. I shorted GLD at .78.. covered at .92. Paid commission of .0075 each way. That's a cost of .155. My reward would have been .08 less .015, or .065. This is assuming covering at .70, which you've said in the past you would call 1:1, even with slippage on entry. Now, this isn't even 1:2 reward.
[13:09] {Threei} it tagged 1:1,
[13:09] {Threei} so why do you keep the stop at its original place?
[13:09] {Threei} we trail stop after 1:1 is hit
[13:10] {Threei} slippage is slippage, you can't incorporate it in your calculations of targets since charts do not account for it
[13:10] {Threei} simply keep it within reasonable, do not chase beyond that,
[13:10] {strider} So where do you move the stop for the GLD trade?
[13:10] {Threei} and decide from the get go what it is you are after
[13:11] {Threei} if it's a scalp, take it
[13:11] {Threei} if you partial, trail
[13:11] {Threei} if a stock tagged 1:1, you hjaven't covered for some reason
[13:11] {Threei} stop must be trailed anyway
[13:11] {Threei} chart has no idea whether you are out or still holding
[13:11] {strider} trail to where?
[13:11] {Threei} to above b/e
[13:12] {Threei} to below b/e if long
[13:12] {Threei} this is standard p[rocedure
[13:12] {Threei} .70 touched, stop to above .80
[13:12] {BillyD} Vad, slippage to.77 and stop at .90 is a .13 potential loss with a potential !:1 gain of .10.....is this more of a personal discretion trade for each trader?
[13:12] {Threei} pretty much
[13:13] {Threei} and if slippage is too big, simply skip the trade
[13:13] {strider} Did you get 1:1 of GLD?
[13:13] {strider} on
[13:13] {Threei} [12:58] {Threei} .71 billy, didn't get .70
[13:13] {BillyD} I thought maybe you saw a bit more in it to account for the initial slippage.....
[13:14] {strider} where did you have your exit price set?
[13:14] {nemo} 63.20 important for RIMM methinks
[13:14] {Threei} bid .70, didn't get it,
[13:14] {Threei} canceled after little bounce and hit .71 when it returned to it but market started upticking
[13:15] {dino} out ash .83 +.309
[13:15] {magoo} how low PCLN go vad iyo?
[13:15] {Threei} no idea
[13:18] {Les} $usd index looks like its coiling like a spring. symetric triangle on 5 min. chart? b/o or b/d possibly coming.

[14:17] {dino} as for alcohol, funny, i was just walking up the street thinking about having a few beers tonight
[14:17] {Threei} I really needed some yesterday
[14:18] {Threei} but allowed myself some only around 8 pm, when things started working
[14:19] {nemo} 8 your time or mine
[14:20] {Threei} mine... why would I go of your time
[14:20] {nemo} you could drink earlier
[14:21] {nemo} Always my excuse when I drink before noon...it's after lunch somewhere
[14:21] {Threei} makes sense
[14:21] {nemo} which should scare you
[14:22] {Threei} Most Americans Favor Big-Screen TVs Over Energy Conservation
[14:22] {Threei} okay...
[14:23] {nemo} all's right with the world
[14:23] {Threei} yeah, I would seriously worry about nation mental health if it were other way around
[14:23] {dino} good to see that
[14:24] {strider} But think of all that energy you're saving while sitting on the couch watchin g the big screen TV
[14:24] {Threei} yes, I am a well known fighter against entrophy
[14:25] {dino} strider has a point, one form of energy for another
[14:25] {nemo} is that entropy or atrophy Vad?
[14:26] {Threei} entropy
[14:26] {nemo} what's that got to do with sitting in front of a tv?
[14:26] {Threei} huh?
[14:27] {Threei} any movement increases the anount of entropy in Universe
[14:27] {nemo} oh

[14:33] {Threei} and I am still there, on a platform
[14:33] {BillyD} lol
[14:34] {Les} spy touching green so new opportunity hopefully coming

[14:36] {strider} 25/month
[14:36] {Threei} I don't remember how much TTN text only
[14:36] {Threei} anyone knows?
[14:36] {strider} 50, I THINK.
[14:36] {strider} I looked at it.
[14:37] {Les} dollar chose down
[14:37] {Threei} ok
[14:37] {fernp} fly is $25 montly
[14:37] {dino} well hope the door doesn't hit him in the azz when he leaves
[14:38] {strider} I hate Jim Cramer
[14:38] {Threei} who?
[14:38] {dino} magoo
[14:38] {Threei} lol
[14:38] {strider} Idiot on CNBC...a clown that has an aftermarket show.
[14:39] {Threei} nothing like brotherly love
[14:39] {BillyD} roflol
[14:39] {dino} the atlas is going to shrug
[14:39] {strider} Cramer=Motley Fool on speed.
[14:39] {Threei} you managed to finish it yet dino?
[14:40] {dino} about half way
[14:41] {dino} reardon's mill accident
[14:41] {Threei} sorry... I know it's enormous :)
[14:41] {dino} i like it
[14:41] {Threei} good
[14:41] {dino} did you read fountainhead?
[14:41] {nemo} yep
[14:41] {Threei} I like it as philosophy manifesto
[14:41] {Threei} as far as god riting goes it's not
[14:41] {dino} is it just as good?
[14:41] {Threei} good
[14:42] {Threei} it's shorter
[14:42] {Threei} lol
[14:42] {dino} the writings fine, really thows alot of what is going on today at you
[14:42] {Threei} oh, some similarities are stuning
[14:43] {dino} indeed
[14:45] {dino} i'm showing my age on it tho, had to buy pair of +1 reading glasses. the paperback type is small
[14:45] {Threei} heh... 1.25 here
[14:46] {Threei} I'd put it this way dino:
[14:46] {nemo} not quite there yet
[14:46] {Threei} both, fountainhead and atlas are based on the same philosophy, objectivism,
[14:46] {Threei} but atlas takes it more to a society level
[14:46] {nemo} as well as anthem
[14:46] {Threei} while fountainhead keeps it more to a personal level
[14:47] {nemo} Fountainhead focused on individuals
[14:47] {Threei} that's what I just said
[14:47] {dino} i will order it
[14:47] {Threei} fountainhead was first
[14:47] {Threei} and made her writing career
[14:47] {nemo} where each represents each constituent of the philosophy
[14:48] {Les} how interesting. hadn't heard of American dystopian fiction until you mentioned Ayn Rand.
[14:48] {Threei} and IMO as far as oure writing goes, Fountainhead is better
[14:48] {nemo} there's plenty of it Les
[14:48] {dino} good, looking forward to it
[14:48] {Les} I'm familiar with Huxley and Welles, but they are british
[14:49] {Threei} Orwell?
[14:50] {Les} him too :)
[14:50] {Les} sorry typo
[15:02] {larisa} wow AMZN, just noticed
[15:02] {Threei} yeah
[15:03] {fernp} Have a good evening everybody. see you all tomorrow.
[15:03] {nemo} nite fern
[15:03] {Threei} take care fern
[15:04] {dino} cya fern
[15:04] {Les} gn fern
[15:04] {Les} volume returning to aig
[15:09] {BillyD} BEXP strong
[15:10] {Threei} looks so tempting for a break
[15:10] {BillyD} yes
[15:11] {strider} long BEXP .09 hl
[15:11] {nemo} $ just jumpe
[15:12] {strider} stop below 11
[15:12] {Threei} strange entry strider
[15:12] {Threei} not here nor there
[15:12] {Threei} not a break yet,
[15:13] {Threei} but way too high for aggressive entry
[15:13] {Threei} the only reason for this kind would be to prevent missing it in case it breaks fast
[15:13] {Threei} but it's not BEXP personality
[15:14] {Les} rimm
[15:23] {Threei} SBUX CEO: Via instant coffee is not cannabilizing core business; is exceeding forecast; SBUX is done closing stores - CNBC
[15:25] {strider} move stop to .04 BEXP
[15:28] {dino} gj
[15:29] {Threei} yeah, this trailing I like
[15:30] {Threei} done according to what chart says
[15:30] {strider} thx
[15:31] {strider} Man,I hate these molasses trades,, but I'm gettin squashed on some of your super-fast stocks.
[15:32] {strider} I' sure I'll get better...but having problems with execution, mostly stop loss exits.
[15:33] {strider} I don't remember it being so tough when I was in the room 6 years ago...course I was 6 years younger then.
[15:33] {Threei} actually, executions wise it became way easier
[15:33] {nemo} different market
[15:33] {Threei} no thinking involved in executions anymore
[15:34] {strider} No, it's just manipulating the L2 screen....volume and price.
[15:34] {Threei} I guess you are simply out of shape... give it a month or two
[15:34] {Threei} it will become automatic
[15:34] {Threei} click on price, click button
[15:34] {Threei} simple as that
[15:35] {strider} No. It's not, vad. You don't know how complex the swhole thing is,,,you've been doing it too long.
[15:35] {Threei} hehe
[15:35] {Threei} if it's complex, you are doing something wrong
[15:35] {strider} Have to be ready to exist at either profit or loss. Partialling out. Lots of options to be ready for.
[15:35] {strider} exit
[15:36] {Threei} wait
[15:36] {Threei} you ARE overcomplicating it
[15:36] {Threei} it approaches your exit price, click on level 2 on your target
[15:36] {Threei} hover over sell
[15:36] {Threei} click as it's there
[15:37] {Threei} or lay it out in advance
[15:37] {Threei} that's it
[15:37] {strider} That's what you have to do...lay it out in advance. but then you also have to be ready to do a loss sell as well. and often, the volume price has to be changed, cause you're getting ready to partial out on the profit side.
[15:38] {Threei} so, while stock iks moving, click on arrow to get size down to half and lay it out
[15:38] {Threei} if it reversed on you too soon and went to a stop, just click sell
[15:39] {strider} have to change volume there.
[15:39] {Threei} no
[15:39] {Threei} faster to click twice
[15:40] {strider} I'm not partialling half most of the time. Less than that.
[15:40] {Threei} do you have two level 2s?
[15:40] {strider} yes
[15:40] {Threei} put a stock on both,
[15:40] {Threei} partial on one for sell at profit,
[15:41] {strider} sometimes they're both in use. As in this morning first thing.
[15:41] {Threei} full position at another for sell at loss
[15:41] {Threei} OK, I exhausted my versions :)
[15:41] {strider} :)
[15:42] {larisa} I say do not partial until you are more confident
[15:42] {Threei} I was just thinking that
[15:42] {Threei} but he finds a flaw with anything I suggest... so shinked back :)
[15:42] {Threei} shrinked too
[15:42] {larisa} lol
[15:43] {strider} I'll get better at it.
[15:43] {Threei} just try not to
[15:44] {Threei} you were +70 larisa? or +30?
[15:44] {larisa} I was -70. you were +30
[15:44] {Threei} right
[15:44] {strider} Vad, do you think you're system is profitable without partialling?
[15:44] {larisa} {--- honest here
[15:44] {Threei} Alzheimer...
[15:45] {Threei} I don't think... I know
[15:45] {strider} stopped , by the way
[15:45] {strider} Good. I just can't see that from here. I started at a bad time in the market.
[15:46] {Threei} let's distinguish system and one's particular execution
[15:47] {strider} Sure. I was asking about the potential for your system, without the advantage of partialling.
[15:47] {strider} I know that my execution skills are costing me money.
[15:49] {strider} Wasn't criticizing your system...only asking if partialling were a necessary part of it.
[15:50] {Threei} they are always discretionary
[15:50] {strider} k
[15:50] {Threei} I can't tell anyone to scalp or day trade
[15:50] {Threei} if you noticed, I make the distinction when call for both
[15:50] {Threei} as in:
[15:50] {strider} sure
[15:50] {Threei} for scalpers stop is this,
[15:51] {Threei} for day traders this
[15:51] {Threei} etc
[15:51] {Threei} but it's up to everyone to decide who s/he is
[15:55] {BillyD} on that note, I will call it a day...thx Vad
[15:55] {BillyD} lol
[15:55] {Threei} thank you all
[15:55] {larisa} bye all
[15:55] {dino} take care you guys
[15:55] {Threei} have a good evening, see you tomorrow
[15:55] {nemo} take it any way i can get it

Nov 06 2009

Very narrow and extremely boring day with nothing happening and nothing to report. Most of trades we tried to find didn't even trigger.


Session Time: Fri Nov 06 00:00:00 2009

[08:07] {Les} gm. AIG post Q profit blah blah blah. fun and game today with AIG...
[08:08] {magoo} morning
[08:08] {magoo} any news AIG?
[08:09] {Threei} well, it's fun and games until someone loses an (insert whatever)
[08:09] {Les} wow AIG in the red
[08:09] {magoo} but news?
[08:09] {magoo} hi vad btw'
[08:09] {Threei} hey
[08:09] {Threei} American International Group, Inc Reports Q3 $0.68 v $1.98e (unclear if comp), R $26B v $23Be; To take $5.6B Q4 charge
[08:09] {Threei} - During the first nine months of 2009 and through October 31, 2009, AIG entered into agreements to sell or completed the sale of operations and assets that are expected to generate a total of approximately $5.6B in net after-tax proceeds that will be available to repay outstanding borrowings and reduce the amount of the FRBNY Facility upon closing.
[08:09] {Threei} - AIG continues to engage in productive discussions with potential buyers for a number of its other businesses.
[08:09] {Threei} - Loss to be incurred Q4 (equates to around $7/ share)
[08:10] {Threei} - CEO: Our results reflect continued stabilization in performance and market trends. AIG employees are working to preserve the strength of our insurance businesses in a challenging market by working closely with our distribution partners, with third quarter 2009 showing signs of stabilization. Pricing in our commercial property casualty business has been stable. Management continues to monitor rates closely and maintain underwriting discipline, turning away some renewal business due to aggressive pricing by existing and new competitors.
[08:11] {Les} nice speech by the CEO
[08:11] {Les} sounds like Washington talk.
[08:11] {Threei} there are plenty of other numbers that don't tell me anything
[08:12] {Threei} but if you are numbers afficcionado I can post them
[08:12] {magoo} nah
[08:12] {magoo} how u interpret that garbage?
[08:12] {Threei} you said it
[08:12] {Threei} as garbage
[08:13] {magoo} i do have a way w/words
[08:13] {Threei} that's why I borrow from you
[08:13] {Threei} I don't know many of those
[08:14] {Threei} so I need to asource to borrow from
[08:14] {magoo} i wonder how i managed to trade for so long with few issues on such blazing speed, stuck quotes are only recent issue
[08:15] {Threei} truly miracle
[08:15] {magoo} news AMZN?
[08:15] {Threei} here is my assumption:
[08:16] {Threei} upgrade with 160 target
[08:16] {Threei} last couple weeks stuck quotes triggering necessity to switch servers occur more often,
[08:17] {Threei} so I suppose laser server farm experiences somewhat more diffculties, or internet weather is a bit worse,
[08:17] {Threei} and with your low speed connection you were borderline
[08:18] {Threei} This recent worsening affected those with good connection within bearable limits, nothing groundshaking
[08:18] {magoo} makes sence
[08:18] {Threei} or nothing that simple switch of servers wouldn't fix
[08:18] {Threei} but for slow connection became a real issue... no buffer
[08:20] {Les} trading has proven to be eye opener in technology and communications speeds required
[08:20] {Threei} not unlike downloading porn I suppose
[08:20] {Les} wouldn't know about that
[08:20] {Threei} neither would I
[08:21] {Threei} but I hear things
[08:21] {magoo} me neither
[08:21] {Threei} but I know what you mean Les
[08:21] {Threei} funny episode once
[08:21] {magoo} ya, good things, er um...discraceful things i mean
[08:21] {Les} dual core was top notch two years ago. Now with multiple windows open the PC slows down
[08:21] {Threei} lol
[08:21] {Threei} at some party,
[08:22] {Threei} casual conversation leads to one guy's piqued interest
[08:22] {Threei} he says he has very fast order execution system
06[08:22] * nemo slaps Threei around a bit with a large Good Morning!
[08:23] {Les} quiet nemo, vads telling a joke
[08:23] {magoo} capn:)
06[08:23] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large reciprocation
[08:23] {KSystems} morning Mr Vad
[08:23] {Threei} he is very with that,
[08:23] {KSystems} sir
[08:23] {nemo} mornin' Mags K Les
[08:23] {Threei} KS :)
[08:23] {Les} :) Nemo, K
06[08:23] * KSystems slaps Threei around a bit with a large payroll
[08:23] {Threei} he invites me fordemoinstration
[08:24] {Threei} shows me some crappy online broker page,
[08:24] {Threei} I ask to see the order going through
[08:24] {Threei} so he sends some under the market bid
[08:24] {Threei} page refreshes in a dew seconds,
[08:24] {Threei} to show something like:
[08:25] {Threei} Order Status: Pending
[08:25] {Threei} next refresh,
[08:25] {Threei} he looks at me with this victorious expression
[08:25] {Threei} and says: look what happens now
[08:26] {Threei} page refreshes in a few seconds to say that his order is in
[08:26] {magoo} dammit..was thuinking aig short 36.80
[08:26] {Threei} I honestly didn't know what to say, he was so proud of his blazzing speed system
[08:26] {Les} he was daytrading with that?
[08:26] {Threei} so I nod politely and try to switch conversation
[08:27] {Threei} he was mixing day trading with swingtrading, and was fairly new at "day" part
[08:27] {magoo} K :)
[08:27] {Les} did you enlighten him?
[08:27] {Threei} he was quite insisten in seeing what I have in that regard
[08:28] {Threei} and I could avoid showing it without looking strangely coy just for so long
[08:28] {Threei} long story short...
[08:29] {Threei} when I clicked Buy to show him order going through, and it was actual entry
[08:29] {Threei} he didn't realize what happend
[08:29] {Threei} I completed a trade on something fast befofe he understood that I was in
[08:30] {Threei} *(US) OCT UNEMPLOYMENT RATE: 10.2% V 9.9%E

[08:33] {magoo} wanna laugh, yesterday when i was searching through files to try and up our dsl speed, i saw where in 2000 the original dsl speed we were using to trade was 128k
[08:33] {Les} hmmm huge paradigm shift in speeds since I arrived in Switzerland beginning 2000
[08:33] {Les} cracking open telco monopoly helped alot
[08:34] {magoo} back then trading through schwab, then datek, then ameritrade

[08:36] {Threei} boy... larisa remembers what fun it was
[08:36] {Threei} they gave us weapon light years ahead of everyone else
[08:37] {Threei} NITE guaranteed execution
[08:37] {Threei} that was licence to print money
[08:37] {Threei} lasted for about 9-10 months
[08:38] {Threei} then NITE pulled it, said we were robbing them blind
[08:38] {Threei} of course their initial idea was to rob us blind,
[08:38] {magoo} vad..heck of pullbk here
[08:38] {Threei} they just underestimated us
[08:38] {magoo} any bouncers?
[08:38] {nemo} on aig mags?
[08:38] {Threei} it's not pullback
[08:38] {Threei} it's downtrend

[09:21] {ese} vg...welcome
[09:21] {_vgdanger} hig off the open ?
[09:21] {Threei} HIG tends to make rather sharo moves right out of the gate
[09:22] {Threei} sharp
[09:22] {dino} es, 30 minute wait then i'll start
[09:22] {strider} sharo=charo?
[09:22] {_vgdanger} what do u think of this 23.50 area?
[09:22] {Threei} better to wait out first few min and let it settle down
[09:22] {ese} at least that form dino
[09:22] {Threei} I don't really
[09:22] {dino} highest rate since 1983; remember '83 was low
[09:23] {ese} 2 days away....and it's suprising how out of sync you get
[09:23] {ese} for me dino
[09:23] {_vgdanger} sharo out the get?
[09:23] {_vgdanger} gate?
[09:24] {Threei} sharp moves right out of the gate
[09:24] {_vgdanger} i see
[09:24] {Threei} most often those are moves down
[09:25] {Threei} but get caught on a wrong side, you'll get killed
[09:25] {cosmo} NVDA for example ....maybe
[09:25] {_vgdanger} and u try for capit?
[09:25] {Threei} depends
[09:25] {Threei} in uptrend after gap up, yes
[09:25] {Threei} there is no gap up today
[09:26] {bkhmd} gm all
[09:26] {Threei} bkh :)
[09:27] {cosmo} NVDA 13 test
[09:28] {_vgdanger} what else do u look at off open these days?
[09:29] {_vgdanger} aside from rimm and hig?
[09:29] {Threei} AIG
[09:30] {_vgdanger} and no buying new highs for momentum on that guy..lol
[09:31] {Threei} Long Setup: SBUX .55 break

[09:37] {dino} so how many jobs has obama "saved" now
[09:37] {Threei} friking SBUX decided to go now
[09:37] {fernp} big slippage with HIG here grrrr
[09:38] {dino} this bounce a bit early, not trusting it
[09:38] {Threei} it's a work in progress dino

[09:41] {Threei} VP Aide: Obama considering various ways to assist job market
[09:41] {Threei} oh good

[09:41] {Threei} he has many various ways, he just needs to consider which one to use
[09:41] {nemo} "We're from the government, and we're here to help"
[09:42] {ese} amzn ...at it again
[09:42] {bkhmd} yep

[09:43] {ese} gap up S&P
[09:43] {ese} bull trap ?
[09:43] {bkhmd} im confused those numbers were bad its friday and the market is not tanking?

[10:02] {strider} I got pretty much the same thing down here.......can't see how it's at my end since for the first month with Laser I had no problems.
[10:02] {magoo} im froze here,,,u?
[10:02] {dino} rst on your own
[10:02] {_vgdanger} ive read the logs...im tryng to be a sponge...learn from everyone

[10:03] {dino} keep it on screen, may hit it again
[10:03] {Threei} but if some are fine and some experience problems, it's most likely an internet weather in your direction
[10:03] {_vgdanger} rst?
[10:03] {dino} cstr looks like gap filled from julyish, have to start laying out for them
[10:03] {strider} internet weather?
[10:03] {dino} yes vg rst out .42, keep watching it, if pulls back may try again
[10:03] {Threei} some routes experience slowdown... could be a coastwide, could be certain state

[10:05] {nemo} that was the question now moving too fast to .60, consolidation and short break of .60
[10:06] {nemo} no consoliation
[10:06] {nemo} thosy symmetrical wedges are a crapshoot, but usually in the direction of the previous trend.

[10:16] {dino} mkt dropping
[10:16] {Les} want to take a little bite out of stocks while you are looking for setup. But paper trading with IB software not fast filler, not ideal
[10:16] {Les} don't know if it's because its paper trade.
[10:17] {Threei} ok, this is new for me
[10:17] {Threei} if even paper trade is slow, what to expect from real one, lol
[10:17] {Les} :D
[10:18] {Les} yeh curious how software works
[10:18] {fernp} AIG pulling back
[10:19] {larisa} .15 support for RIMM, looking if can bounce
[10:20] {larisa} potential not much, around .40
[10:25] {dino} rail gap filled
[10:25] {ese} dino ....you had a look at cstr by chance
[10:26] {Les} short rimm .25
[10:26] {ese} thinkin long sm at .50
[10:27] {dino} yes es watching it wanted 26.80 but missed
[10:27] {dino} watching rst, cstr, gok, rail, hans
[10:28] {dino} may stillo get cstr
[10:28] {dino} also watching ddm, dxd
[10:28] {patience} out rest of hgu +.82, still holding goldcorp and barrick
[10:28] {ese} was watching hans as well......couple of small gambles in hans and trow haven't worked out
[10:28] {dino} run dmc market
[10:29] {dino} "it's tricky" showing my age
[10:29] {ese} lol.....yup
[10:29] {ese} reasonable Q's with hans and cstr too.....nothing that warrants the hit there taking
[10:31] {dino} coming into lod
[10:31] {Les} covered RIMM @ 57
[10:32] {ese} l cstr .55

[10:35] {Threei} looking at RIMM daily, I see little to prevent it from dropping to 55
[10:36] {ese} +.25 remaing 1/2 1k each
[10:36] {_vgdanger} vad.....the hig earlier was that just a short into a bounce?
[10:36] {dino} gok lod
[10:36] {Threei} yes
[10:37] {dino} hans too

[10:38] {ese} there it goes.....too late
[10:39] {dino} missed
[10:39] {ese} rats missed it
[10:39] {dino} wanted 32.50s
[10:39] {strider} wht period chart you looking at dino?
[10:39] {fernp} HIG setting for a short if loses lod, Vad?
[10:39] {dino} gok sm l .
[10:39] {Threei} .40...
[10:39] {dino} .80
[10:39] {Threei} well
[10:40] {Threei} pretty much, but I am not sure it's the best way to enter
[10:40] {dino} stop .49
[10:40] {Threei} shakeouts are abundant
[10:40] {fernp} thanks, i'll follow your instructions :-)
[10:41] {_vgdanger} dino stop not lod but always about 30c for room?
[10:41] {dino} on sm yes
[10:41] {_vgdanger} gotcha
[10:41] {dino} stopped
[10:42] {ese} would agree with that today vad
[10:44] {Les} descending triangle in HIG, ready to drop?
[10:45] {Threei} if market helps
[10:45] {ese} market about face........it be all red now!
[10:45] {Les} spy
[10:45] {Threei} fern... two way on HIG
[10:45] {fernp} tell me
[10:45] {nemo} metro
[10:45] {Threei} one is try and short it here with stop above .60
[10:45] {Threei} a lot of uncertainty, tighter sto[
[10:46] {Threei} another is to wait for .40
[10:46] {Threei} a bit better chance but if shakes out, your stop is much wider
[10:46] {dino} can't believe hans holds that .00
[10:46] {Threei} and if it goes above .60 here, it all becomes a moot point
[10:47] {Threei} there you go
[10:47] {fernp} incredible
[10:47] {Threei} this is the kind of random moves that I usually have hard time finding plays in
[10:48] {fernp} shakeouts continuously. I understand you
[10:50] {dino} gok whoosh
[10:52] {larisa} why is it random ? HIG tested morning support at .40 levels and trying to bounce with market strength. you do not see structure here, like db or something? Am I seeing things :)
[10:53] {nemo} dino sees dead people
[10:53] {dino} unfortunately
[10:53] {Threei} here is what prevents me from seeing it this way
[10:54] {ese} l fitb .09
[10:54] {dino} hans sm l .10
[10:54] {Threei} market barely bounced off support, remaining in the range of consolidation
[10:54] {Threei} HIG however went above the upper limit of consolidation range
[10:54] {Threei} normally, it would be a sign of it being stronger than market,
[10:55] {Threei} but that's not the case either
[10:55] {ese} technically these mid west bank stocks looking good
[10:55] {Threei} as market is considerably farther from its lows whikle HIG was almost testing it
[10:55] {ese} hans ...fitb....fmer etc etc
[10:55] {Threei} so it just doesn't fall together
[10:56] {_vgdanger} double bottom dino?
[10:56] {Threei} and prevents me from constructing a play
[10:56] {dino} rst held well
[10:56] {bkhmd} From the bounce at 10:30 price continued up while vol cslopes down?
[10:56] {Les} small ascending wedge in SPY?
[10:56] {dino} rst?
[10:56] {_vgdanger} hans
[10:56] {_vgdanger} aggressive
[10:57] {larisa} take 10 people, they will offer 10 different trades on same stock :)
[10:57] {dino} oh, i like it holds well
[10:57] {ese} that kills me...my avg price .0908967.......talk about penny pinching
[10:57] {dino} well larisa you know what they say about chairs

06[11:31] * larisa slaps Threei around a bit with a large trout
[11:32] {nemo} so where do we end up today boys and girls?
[11:32] {Threei} SBUX irritates me
[11:32] {larisa} I want -200 :)
[11:32] {nemo} what you want is irrelevant
[11:32] {ese} i can't afford it but someo others on this board probably can
[11:32] {bkhmd} -78
[11:33] {Threei} we don't always get what we want... I wanted that trout pan-fried and on the plate for instance
[11:33] {Threei} and look in what form I got it
[11:33] {nemo} splattered shashimi
[11:33] {strider} comes with instructions, though
[11:33] {dino} just be glad you got it
[11:34] {Threei} I am... shower is in order though
[11:34] {bkhmd} if my -78 call is correct does that earn me the right to slap people with smelly fish? lol
[11:34] {nemo} no you smell better that way
[11:34] {Threei} no bkh - you have that right as it is
[11:35] {Threei} BLTXX has posted 7th straight gain, yet DRYS looks miserable
[11:36] {Threei} OPTT Gets A$66.5M grant from Australian govt for 19MW wave power project off the coast of Victoria, Australia
[11:36] {Threei} interesting little stock this OPTT
[11:37] {bkhmd} i revise my close call to 9889 on the dow
[11:37] {Threei} Ocean Power Technologies Inc
[11:37] {dino} i'm going with 10098
[11:38] {bkhmd} oops i left out a 0
[11:38] {Les} good stuff. Australia's gotta get off its coal addiction
[11:39] {dino} "saved or created over 1 million jobs" cracks me up, i guess he's an oracle
[11:39] {Threei} wow, that was short speech
[11:39] {dino} never mentions that under his term job losses are in millions
[11:39] {Threei} limelight is not as pleasant today or what
[11:40] {nemo} yeah, but you can't blame that on him
[11:40] {_vgdanger} dino what kind of set up is the cmi?
[11:40] {Threei} actually, however it pains me to say so, you can't
[11:41] {Threei} you can blame him with promising impossible though
[11:41] {nemo} what politician doesn't
[11:41] {dino} got whacked a few days ago, been moving up since. i follow the whack a moles for few days
[11:41] {_vgdanger} whats ur trigger on these?
[11:41] {Threei} here is huge difference nemo:
[11:42] {Threei} one thing is to promise something in order to get elected,
[11:42] {dino} 99 wks of unemployment now, longest since early 70s. he is buying votes, if you elect me you will never have to work while i'm here
[11:43] {Threei} and completely another is to push through immense spending program crippling economy for decades looking forward, in order to fulfill impossible promisde
[11:43] {dino} instead he should be creating invcentives for business to hire
[11:43] {Les} can't blame him Vad. This is new situation for modern politics
[11:43] {dino} handouts are not the answer
[11:43] {Threei} can't?
[11:43] {nemo} no...it's doing exactly according to his political philosophy...I don't want to call him communist, but he's as left as any European government
[11:43] {Threei} sorry, I cerftainly can and must
[11:43] {dino} look at the ghettos, generation after generation
[11:44] {Threei} these policies will cost dearly
[11:44] {Threei} ask me how I know
[11:44] {Threei} I once fled the country collapsed after attempots to ake such poicies work
[11:44] {dino} same w/ section 8 housing, generation after generation
[11:44] {bkhmd} ok how do you know Vad
[11:44] {bkhmd} tell us
[11:44] {bkhmd} lol
[11:44] {Les} people don't change overnight. Economics have shown us the futility, but the inability, for modern thinkers to change readily
[11:44] {strider} inverted h&s FITB
[11:44] {Les} now its the West's turn to fail Vad
[11:45] {nemo} Plu cest change, plu cest le meme chose
[11:45] {Threei} sure - if it chooses to do so
[11:45] {dino} europe falls first
[11:45] {Les} do you think it has choice?
[11:45] {Threei} yes
[11:45] {Threei} get back to what worked
[11:45] {Threei} real capitalism, not this pink and blue bs
[11:46] {dino} agree
[11:46] {dino} need a reagan revolution
[11:46] {Les} i'm sure they'd go back if they weren't locked up in important interests pockets
[11:46] {larisa} back to 60s you mean?
[11:46] {Threei} put emophasis of personal responsibility and empowerment with as little goverment intrusion as possible
[11:46] {dino} 80's larisa
[11:46] {Threei} and stop trying to solve problems of ones at the expense of others
[11:47] {nemo} never happen...they want bigger government, so nobody will be held responsible
[11:47] {Les} ok, so take ability to create money from private interests. No more Fed
[11:47] {Threei} Problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people's monet - M. Tatcher
[11:47] {Les} Money=corruption
[11:47] {dino} reading atlas shrugged right now is uncany
[11:47] {nemo} yeah, but then they just start printing it
[11:47] {Threei} OK, whatever
[11:47] {Threei} OPTT momo
[11:48] {nemo} hah, no quotes
[11:48] {Threei} spread is disgusting
[11:48] {Les} yep
[11:48] {dino} no news
[11:48] {Threei} I posted earlier dino

[11:49] {Threei} [11:36] {Alert} Threei OPTT Gets A$66.5M grant from Australian govt for 19MW wave power project off the coast of Victoria, Australia
[11:49] {larisa} 19MW is like 2 waves a day :) not much
[11:49] {Threei} lol
[11:50] {Threei} my a$$ is out at .99
[11:50] {Threei} will take out 8 most likely but
[11:51] {Threei} yeah, it did
[11:51] {dino} gj
[11:51] {Threei} and sharp drop now
[11:51] {Threei} sheesh, it does what I type while I type
[11:51] {strider} I want one of those keyboards, vad

[11:52] {Threei} wow
[11:52] {Threei} is this a third wave, larisa?
[11:52] {larisa} third wave will come at 9 :)
[11:53] {larisa} how can you trade stock like that, unless you are in at the very beginning of the move
[11:53] {Threei} we need some definition for momo setup
[11:54] {Threei} like:
[11:54] {Threei} aim your cursor at market buy button, close your eys, gently push it,
[11:54] {Threei} listen the sound or order getting completyed
[11:54] {nemo} in
[11:54] {Threei} pray for 3 minutes
[11:54] {Threei} open your eyes, do not look at the quotes,
[11:55] {Threei} move cursor to sell market
[11:55] {Threei} push it
[11:55] {Threei} now look at P/L

[12:16] {ese} tks.....that one was a pain in the you know what
[12:16] {dino} understood
[12:16] {Threei} been a while since we had boring Fridays
[12:16] {Threei} it's rather summer phenomenon
[12:17] {dino} data issues
[12:17] {dino} out cmi +.38
[12:19] {dino} i fear that if cable doesn't solve this problem, i'll have to sell the building and move
[12:19] {Threei} that's rather radical

[12:20] {ese} have to bid you all farewell for the weekend....catch ya monday

[12:23] {Threei} ty
[12:27] {dino} aug 9630-9131; sept 9917-9250; oct 10119-9481; roughly 600 pts each
[12:27] {fernp} out HIG +.14
[12:27] {dino} gj
[12:27] {Threei} wtg
[12:27] {fernp} small lot
[12:28] {Threei} small wtg
[12:28] {fernp} :-)
[12:29] {Threei} AIG
[12:29] {Threei} tries for momo again
[12:31] {dino} rrgb sm l break of .50
[12:31] {Threei} no matter how much I try to observe AIG to get down the pattern of its explosive transformation s to a momo mover, just can't pinpoint it dow
[12:32] {Threei} waves come out of nowhere, and there is no chart formation that would be more or less uniform to their start
[12:33] {Threei} sometimes it's pullback, sometimes it's break, sometimes its a quiet consolidation near the low of tghe range
[12:33] {Threei} and there is no clean connection to the market overall
[12:35] {Threei} look at OPTT
[12:35] {dino} wow
[12:35] {Threei} thing jkjust won't quit
[12:36] {nemo} look at wfmi
[12:44] {_vgdanger} vad...yesterday u mentioned criteria for a pullback into suport...do u look for fats pullbacks into support for most strong stocks for a bounce or was it just for momo aig?
[12:45] {_vgdanger} fast^
[12:45] {Threei} no, it's general pricniple
[12:45] {strider} STEC at lod
[12:46] {magoo} .
[12:46] {magoo} in anything
[12:46] {fernp} nothing
[12:46] {_vgdanger} k thanks...guess i associate low vloume pullback with slow tape
[12:47] {Threei} it's two very different animals
[12:47] {Threei} fast vertical drop into support is a play for bounce
[12:47] {Threei} low volume shallow pullback is an uptrend continuation pattern
[12:48] {Threei} and can be used either as a supporting idea for reading the breakout
[12:48] {Threei} or for aggressive entry
[12:48] {_vgdanger} ahhh....i see...so the tape would slow in the cae of continuation pattern correct?
[12:48] {_vgdanger} generall speaking
[12:48] {Threei} yes
[12:50] {strider} RIMM short?
[12:51] {magoo} loss of .00 was
[12:51] {dino} rail stopped
[12:51] {larisa} or bounce into 58.16 pivot on downtrend :)
[12:52] {nemo} or, break of the triangle
[12:52] {larisa} lol
[12:52] {nemo} face it...i'm right...gag
[12:53] {larisa} I never look for triangles.. I like squares :)
[12:53] {nemo} don't stick your chin out like that
[12:53] {strider} Vad, you're in luck
[12:53] {magoo} really
[12:59] {strider} Laser: if you have to outstanding orders on two diff. L2s, can you cancel one without cancelling the other?
[13:00] {strider} two outstanding orders
[13:00] {Threei} on the same stock?
[13:00] {Threei} or differnet?
[13:00] {strider} no, diff. stocks.
[13:00] {Threei} just click Cancel on the level 2 of a stock you want
[13:01] {Threei} it will cancel that one only
[13:01] {Threei} alterrnatively, use blotter,
[13:01] {Threei} tab Pending
[13:01] {strider} button says cancel all..it cancels everything outstanding.
[13:01] {Threei} doubleclick on order will cancel it
[13:01] {strider} ok. great.

[13:03] {strider} right c lick on pending order, and click cancel on blotter or on L2?
[13:03] {Threei} blotter

[13:03] {Threei} I can't even find Cancel All
[13:04] {strider} both of my L2 mouse styles say cancel all. And they do. Must be another setup option somewhere.
[13:05] {fernp} if you press cancel button on level2, all your orders will be cancel
[13:05] {strider} yes
[13:06] {lasertrev} or double click the order in pending
[13:06] {strider} that's all that seems to work for me, trev.
[13:07] {strider} Right clicking doesn't do anything except highlight the line.
[13:07] {gnslng} .
[13:08] {_vgdanger} can someone explain the use current shares feature? in the trade tab? no explanation in manual
[13:08] {lasertrev} sorry double left click
[13:08] {strider} yeah...I was correcting fern :)
[13:10] {dino} rst
[13:13] {fernp} no, in "pendir order" blotter (no in "blotter") if you right click on your pending order, you can cancel, modify (raplace) and remove ( the order disappears from blotter bat stays active). I use these on daily basis
[13:14] {strider} rst wicked
[13:15] {Threei} oh, that's whole separate module
[13:15] {Threei} quite convinient
[13:15] {Threei} I don't use it but it's nice
[13:15] {fernp} there is a tab "pending" in blotter but there you don't have these features
[13:15] {Threei} eright
[13:15] {strider} module?
[13:15] {fernp} view -} pending orders easy

[13:29] {Threei} unlike us, hardened drunk sailors
[13:29] {larisa} you even spelled it right :)
[13:29] {Threei} can you imagine? that's how strongly I believe in what I said
[13:30] {_vgdanger} wow this is awesome thank you!!
[13:31] {Threei} so it's basicaslly setting temporary default number of shares
[13:34] {_vgdanger} ok i see....great source many thanks again
[13:37] {nemo} index hod
[13:38] {Threei} OPTT did make a move
[13:39] {Les} losing volume though. BATS showing fewer trades on OPTT now
[13:39] {Threei} hmm?
[13:40] {Les} would have been nice to have been in on the first run
[13:40] {Les} but it's Friday night and I've just finished watching Gladiator with my son
[13:40] {Threei} this last bar has volume equal to the biggest one previously
[13:40] {Threei} 12:25
[13:41] {Les} would have to look it up in stockcharts to see that
[13:41] {nemo} yeah, volume increasing over the last 10 minutes
[13:41] {dino} good movie
[13:41] {Les} I assume laser provides realtime charting...
[13:41] {Threei} lol
[13:41] {lasertrev} Note: anyone on Laser, avoid Quoteserver 7 running a little slow
[13:41] {Threei} good one Les
[13:42] {nemo} yeah...the guy that played his original owner died filming that movie...in a bar
[13:42] {Les} in Malta
[13:42] {lasertrev} vgdanger: see pm above
[13:42] {nemo} yep
[13:43] {fernp} Gladiator and trading ... things I learn here
[13:43] {_vgdanger} got it thanks
[13:43] {Les} Vad can you provide me with screenshots of your laser layout please? I'm curious to understand it a little more.
[13:44] {Threei} how many screens do you have?
[13:44] {nemo} Vad's layout is weird
[13:44] {Threei} screenshots:
[13:44] {Threei} http://realitytrader.com/vad/Scr1.png
[13:44] {Threei} http://realitytrader.com/vad/Scr2.png
[13:44] {Threei} http://realitytrader.com/vad/Scr3.png
[13:44] {Threei} http://realitytrader.com/vad/Scr4.png
[13:44] {Threei} how are they weird??
[13:45] {Threei} although... I should probably accept this
[13:45] {nemo} I was just trying to fulfill the description somebody made of me while I wasn't here
[13:45] {Threei} what is werid to nemo just haas to be normal
[13:45] {Les} I've got 2 screens. the 28 incher can take two of your screens compacted, so I can fit a lot more info
[13:45] {strider} stopped RST
[13:45] {Les} than what I presently watch
[13:45] {strider} stupid stock.
[13:45] {Threei} OK, I can send you my layout file,
[13:46] {Threei} I am just not sure it will work like this
[13:46] {Threei} different number of screens of different resolutions
[13:46] {Les} will start to read the laser manual. Understand the system a little better
[13:46] {Threei} you may be better off recreating it from screenshots rather than reshuffling my layout
[13:47] {Threei} OPTT C&halfH
[13:48] {fernp} it's difficult to write that Vad, don't know how you do it :)
[13:48] {Threei} I practice
[13:49] {nemo} huh?
[13:51] {Threei} ok, I'll bite
[13:51] {Threei} what's so confusing nemo?
[13:51] {lasertrev} vgdanger: I sent you a private message, please respond
[13:51] {nemo} [13:47] {&Threei} OPTT C&halfH
[13:51] {Threei} ahh
[13:51] {Threei} OK
[13:52] {Threei} OPTT is a stock obviously
[13:52] {Threei} C is Cup as in Cup and Handle
[13:52] {Threei} & is and
[13:52] {Threei} half is half
[13:52] {Threei} H is handle
[13:52] {Threei} together is OPTT forms Cup and Handle, Cup is completed, Handle is half completed
[13:53] {Threei} Hope it helps.
[13:53] {nemo} weird
[13:53] {Threei} with I was tempted to code as Hih
[13:53] {Threei} but that would provoke another HUH
[13:53] {nemo} you gotta' put a threeish dictionary on the website
[13:53] {Threei} I thought about it
[13:53] {Threei} ad dismissed
[13:54] {Threei} see, it's a highly fluid alive ever-changing language
[13:54] {Threei} it changes every time I miss right button
[13:54] {nemo} I think magooish is easier
[13:54] {Threei} I don't want to put myself in rigid limits
[13:54] {Threei} that constrain my creativity
[13:55] {nemo} and I thought you were just making an excuse for your fat fingers
[13:55] {Threei} that's it
[13:55] {Threei} you got it right
[13:55] {Threei} but what an elegant excuse
[13:56] {nemo} no, I'd call it baffling with taurine excrement
[13:56] {Threei} not a lame one like "oh I just bought new keyboard, it's unfamiliar..."
[13:56] {dino} told my doctor i broke my leg in two places....he said stop going there
[13:56] {Threei} lol
[13:56] {nemo} tell the moth joke
[13:56] {Threei} handle is ruined on OPTT
[13:57] {dino} everyone knows it nemo
[13:57] {Threei} should have stayed above 9 for it to be valid
[13:57] {Threei} dino... nemo simply didn't get it still...
[13:57] {Threei} and forgot it on top of that
[13:58] {nemo} yeah, I was looking at it short
[13:58] {nemo} what do you call a moth that has one ball here.....and one ball..............................here?
[13:59] {Threei} nope
[13:59] {Threei} you are telling it qrong
[13:59] {Threei} wrong
[13:59] {dino} lol
[14:00] {dino} what do you have when you have one moth ball here...............................and one moth ball here?
[14:00] {dino} pretty big moth
[14:00] {Threei} there
[14:02] {Threei} AIG
[14:02] {Threei} see this sudden pace pick up?
[14:02] {Threei} US House Appropriations Panel Chmn David Obey reportedly requesting the economy receive a larger 'kick' in order to assist long term deficits
[14:03] {Threei} requesting kick?
[14:03] {Threei} are we going for son of stimulus?
[14:03] {Threei} Market Internals update at 2:00pmET
[14:03] {Threei} - NYSE volume 630M shares, about 8% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.5:1.
[14:03] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 1.24B shares, about 15% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.4:1.
[14:03] {Threei} - VIX index -4.5% to just under 24.50
[14:05] {_vgdanger} aig is forming a triangle on decreasing? volume on 15 min...does this mean its gonna explode ?
[14:05] {Threei} it already exploded
[14:05] {_vgdanger} 60 min actually
[14:05] {Threei} 60 min?
[14:05] {Threei} I don't watch this kind of chart
[14:06] {_vgdanger} i see.. just 1 min and daily right?
[14:06] {Threei} yes
[14:06] {_vgdanger} 1000 for daily?
[14:06] {Threei} yup
[14:07] {_vgdanger} still keeping any eye on hig for close?
[14:10] {Threei} I don't see any setups forming anywhere so far
[14:10] {Threei} weare simply locked in a tight range
[14:10] {Threei} something should start happening for me to try and get read on it
[14:11] {Threei} hmmm... do I read any futher e-mail starting with line:
[14:11] {Threei} Dear Small Businessperson
[14:12] {Threei} my immediate reaction is, go ... yourself
[14:13] {Threei} maybe I am too sensitive
[14:13] {bkhmd} nahhhhh
[14:13] {bkhmd} lol
[14:14] {Threei} but heck, even moth in dino's joke prided itself in being large
[14:15] {bkhmd} was Businessperson on first line or second line
[14:16] {Threei} it's a single line
[14:16] {bkhmd} ur safe then
[14:17] {dino} as long as he doesn't show up at your door and say, "dear businessman, i'm from the government and i'm here to help."
[14:17] {Threei} in this case I'd simply close the door
[14:17] {Threei} but if he said dear small businessman
[14:18] {Threei} I'd knick his teethout first
[14:18] {Threei} then close the door
[14:18] {Les} Vad WFMI appears to have reached its limits. Can you see a pullback here?
[14:19] {Threei} how do you conclude it's done?
[14:19] {nemo} hasn't reached r1
[14:19] {Threei} it's right under day high
[14:19] {Threei} and knocking on it
[14:19] {Threei} anyone's guess whether it breaks or fails
[14:20] {Les} looked like it was going to be held back until last three long candlesticks. sorry
[14:20] {Threei} new high
[14:20] {Threei} les, here is suggestion
[14:21] {nemo} trade what you see, not what you think
[14:21] {Les} go &uck myself?
[14:21] {Threei} lol
[14:21] {strider} bets on close?
[14:21] {strider} {------down
[14:22] {Threei} don't try to build your trading ideas on anything like :looks like"
[14:22] {Threei} leave it for much later, when you have years of experience under your belt
[14:22] {Threei} until then, build setuyps
[14:22] {Threei} and go from them
[14:22] {Threei} they trigger or not
[14:22] {Threei} they fail or not
[14:22] {Threei} period
[14:22] {Les} hmmm that means hours of reviewing your work and thinking...
[14:22] {Threei} not really
[14:23] {Threei} they are simple like rake
[14:23] {strider} SSRI short?
[14:25] {Threei} I ate this stock
[14:25] {Threei} hate
[14:25] {Les} you're right. That RIMM short this morning was based upon recognition of ascending wedge.
[14:26] {Les} or maybe pennant. Bulkowski makes no mention of my imaginary pattern
[14:27] {Threei} another suggestion is,
[14:27] {Threei} you need to start reading less
[14:27] {strider} SBUX spiek
[14:27] {strider} spike
[14:27] {Les} bloody hell you're busting my balls...
[14:28] {Les} how else do I learn setups?
[14:28] {magoo} u are not allowed to say "balls" in room
[14:28] {magoo} ballz ok..
[14:28] {Les} not even moths balls?
[14:29] {magoo} nope
[14:29] {Threei} I don't
[14:29] {Threei} ask ese how reading over 200 trading books worked for him
[14:29] {bkhmd} onlonly snow balls
[14:29] {Threei} and what he ended up with, setups wise
[14:29] {Les} bloody hell you're busting my snow balls...
[14:30] {bkhmd} Les May I chime in?
[14:30] {Les} so pattern recognition comes from? hanging out with someone more experienced? years of observation?
[14:30] {Les} yeh but no balls bk
[14:30] {bkhmd} Les May I?
[14:31] {Threei} starts with learning a few simple setups
[14:31] {Threei} got TTR?
[14:31] {Threei} look at thyem
[14:31] {bkhmd} look back at the set up with WFMI
[14:31] {Les} sure
[14:31] {Threei} they are simple as rake
[14:31] {Threei} you think you need 36 setups?
[14:31] {Threei} you need 5
[14:31] {Threei} 3
[14:31] {bkhmd} at 14at 14:12 it started a consolidation pattern after a jump up
[14:31] {Threei} 7
[14:32] {Les} sorry Vad, you mean examples 5, 3 and /?
[14:32] {Threei} nop
[14:32] {bkhmd} it broke out of that pattern then rested the support at which time it jumped. An aggressive entry would have been at the breakout of consolidation and safer entry after it tested that support it turned out to be a nice scalp but look at it now
[14:32] {Threei} number of setups you need
[14:33] {Les} gotcha bk.
[14:33] {Les} care to list them Vad?
[14:34] {Les} most common setups?
[14:34] {Threei} you just tend to wander all over the net and read everything written by everyone
[14:34] {Threei} they are all listed in TTR
[14:34] {dino} rrgb l .00 stop lod
[14:34] {Les} there's only 7?
[14:34] {bkhmd} the one you called out was a good valid set up for a scalp or longer if it was not so close to resistance
[14:35] {fernp} Les, read TTR and Trading in the zone and stay here for a while
[14:35] {bkhmd} look at it again its a classic actually straight from vads Book
[14:35] {fernp} you don't need much more
[14:35] {bkhmd} as well as Allns Book
[14:35] {bkhmd} Allen*
[14:35] {Les} ok. finished uni for the year so I've a few months to read on setups
[14:35] {Threei} who's Allen?
[14:35] {nemo} wow when was the last time aig had basically a .75 range
[14:36] {nemo} Wrench
[14:36] {bkhmd} Im Guessing your freind Vad
[14:36] {Threei} ?
[14:36] {dino} before the reverse spilt nemo, :)
[14:37] {bkhmd} Farley
[14:37] {Threei} oh Alan
[14:37] {bkhmd} actually thats how i found ur site
[14:37] {Threei} yes
[14:37] {bkhmd} ohhh sorry spelled his name wrong
[14:37] {Threei} he is one of very few educators I have respect for
[14:37] {bkhmd} his book Master Swing Trader was a tough read the first two times
[14:38] {bkhmd} after reading ur book I read his again and actually thought i might have understodd something
[14:38] {Threei} why, they best lines in it are very easy to read
[14:38] {Threei} let me find them
[14:39] {Threei} here it is:
[14:39] {Threei} Thanks for the special guidance of other professional traders and their ability to teach me new
[14:39] {Threei} things each day. Perish the thought that all there is to know about the financial markets has already
[14:39] {Threei} been written. It certainly has not, and these are the brilliant individuals who will continue to offer
[14:39] {Threei} inspiration in the coming years:
[14:39] {_vgdanger} i plan on readin that book this weekend actually
[14:39] {Threei} blah blahg balh,
[14:39] {Threei} and Vadym Graifer.
[14:39] {_vgdanger} is the hardright edge his site?
[14:39] {Threei} there
[14:39] {Threei} yes vg
[14:39] {bkhmd} now u know why i said thanks for the lesson
[14:39] {bkhmd} every day prior to leaving
[14:39] {_vgdanger} u use cylces in ur trading much?
[14:40] {Threei} cycles as in?
[14:40] {_vgdanger} market cycles?
[14:40] {bkhmd} Thanks for the special guidance of other professional traders and their ability to teach me new things each day.
[14:40] {Threei} it doesn't explain much about what you mean, vg :)
[14:41] {strider} Farley talks about "pattern cycles"
[14:41] {_vgdanger} good point let me read the book and ill ask a more edcuated question..lol
[14:41] {Threei} pattern cycle as in how pattern is being born, developed, then reverses on itself?
[14:42] {strider} It's his term....
[14:42] {Threei} I talk about it in MPP I think
[14:42] {bkhmd} wfmi near support large vol spike could we scalp a bounce?
[14:42] {_vgdanger} well from what i read on the site.....the market moves in almost precticatble cycles particulary midday...make sense or did interpret that wrong?
[14:42] {bkhmd} ooops too late broke that support
[14:42] {strider} frankly, I could never get through Farley's book. He's quite prolix.
[14:42] {Threei} oh, OK
[14:43] {nemo} triple top on Rimm
[14:43] {Threei} no, that's not my cup of tea
[14:43] {_vgdanger} gotcha
[14:43] {Threei} his book is not an easy read by any means
[14:43] {bkhmd} agree
[14:43] {_vgdanger} so ive read on amazon reviews...lol
[14:44] {Threei} and yes, he is a good friend, we even used to do seminars together
[14:44] {nemo} scary
[14:45] {Threei} nah.... hunting for a parking spot in overfilled lot in Anaheim with Alan driving is scary
[14:45] {Threei} just ask cosmo
[14:46] {_vgdanger} lol
[14:46] {Threei} ever seen shark circling the victim before lunging?
[14:47] {Threei} "here, this gal seems to be going to her car, let's drive behind her
[14:47] {Threei} crap, she just grabs her makeup... next"
[14:47] {Les} lol
[14:47] {bkhmd} girls are like that
[14:47] {bkhmd} lol
[14:48] {_vgdanger} only two "officialcalls " today right. want to make sure i didnt miss your calls
[14:48] {Threei} larisa was wise enough to take some other car... cosmo though has these memories burned in his mind
[14:48] {Threei} right... can't find much
[14:48] {Threei} narrow range
[14:48] {Les} damn vad, where's the prognostication that the market would bathe in blood? I wanna kill something.
[14:49] {fernp} two? I think is one
[14:49] {bkhmd} its not too late les
[14:49] {Threei} you remind me my favorite saying of russian antlers les
[14:49] {Threei} "if I didn't know fishing calms down nerves, I'd kill someone"
[14:50] {Les} antlers, oh right anglers
[14:50] {Threei} two fern, first one jst got invalidated before triggering.. SBUX long
[14:50] {fernp} yes, yes
[14:50] {Les} trading has same pacifying influence on me.
[14:51] {Threei} lol
[14:51] {fernp} I am not happy with this session, boring and losing friday.
[14:51] {_vgdanger} the hig never triggered?
[14:51] {Threei} it did, and got stopped
[14:51] {fernp} and with big slippage here

[14:52] {fernp} .77 here
[14:55] {Les} MSFT bounce Vad?
[14:57] {Threei} it dropped whole 12 cents
[14:57] {Threei} how much do you expect from bounce?
[14:57] {Threei} 3-5?
[14:57] {Threei} i it really worth it?
[14:57] {nemo} look at wfmi...that's tooo tempting
[14:58] {nemo} must be as many eyeballs on that as on that failed H&S in July
[14:58] {bkhmd} as in continued short or bounce Nemo?
[14:58] {Les} yeh put me foot in me mouth there.
[14:59] {nemo} continued short, but coul have small bounce...who knows...too easy
[14:59] {bkhmd} first bottom inside bands
[14:59] {nemo} whaddya think Vadley
[15:00] {Threei} SEPT CONSUMER CREDIT: -$14.8B V -$10.0BE

[15:04] {larisa} 58.16 pivot res
[15:04] {nemo} broke that little trend
[15:05] {nemo} upward wedge in a weak stock
[15:05] {Threei} so... 15-17 break is long by you, pivot people?
[15:05] {nemo} what

[15:05] {nemo} you mean 58.17?
[15:05] {Threei} yes
[15:06] {nemo} without the pivot point where do you see resistance?
[15:06] {bkhmd} larisa can u explain that pivot is it the resistance of the trend line?
[15:06] {Threei} right at that level
[15:06] {Threei} I don't see pivots
[15:06] {bkhmd} resistance at .16 trend line?
[15:07] {nemo} 200 ma at 58
[15:08] {larisa} pivot is calculated based on previous day high, low, close, plus support levels. many people look at this levels when placing trades
[15:08] {bkhmd} I watched Rimm all day looking for short entry the tails scared me
[15:08] {bkhmd} thanks larisa
[15:08] {bkhmd} I drew trend line and it shows res at .16 as well

[15:27] {nemo} crissakes you take any of these setups you'll pay more in commissions than you'll make on the move...sheesh
[15:27] {Threei} this is what happens when market stays this narrow.. why do you think I am not calling any trades
[15:27] {strider} because you hate us
[15:28] {Threei} that too of course
[15:28] {nemo} Because you're surfing for porn?
[15:28] {Threei} not all of you, mind you...
[15:28] {Threei} there are girls here, them I like
[15:29] {nemo} rimm actually did what it's supposed to do on the break
[15:29] {Threei} yes
[15:29] {Threei} but even RIMM, usually perky one, did it like rusty wheel
[15:30] {nemo} yeah
[15:30] {nemo} would have got stopped at 1:1
[15:30] {Threei} and you have to give me some credit... I have my new lens, and it's sunny outside... and I sit here winstead of going testing it
[15:30] {Threei} Market Internals update at 3:30pmET

[15:30] {Threei} - VIX index -4% to just under 24.50
[15:31] {Threei} volume dropped significantly too
[15:35] {_vgdanger} so are u just keeping an i on scanners for activity at this point?
[15:35] {bkhmd} lol
[15:35] {Threei} pretty much
[15:35] {bkhmd} he is putting the lens on his camera
[15:36] {Threei} lol
[15:36] {Threei} what to put... 2 seconds operation
[15:36] {bkhmd} i have never seen him make a call after 3:30

[15:41] {Threei} Short Setup: AAPL half lot 194 break
[15:42] {Threei} if stays under .15
[15:44] {strider} invalid?
[15:44] {Threei} yeah
[15:44] {nemo} yep
[15:45] {nemo} frickin rimm
[15:45] {bkhmd} i agree
[15:46] {strider} break means actual trade, not just inside market price, correct?
[15:46] {Threei} usually yes
[15:47] {larisa} see what I mean ? :) people need structure and exact instructions. This is why pivots work :)
[15:47] {bkhmd} Larisa do you have time to explain?
[15:48] {bkhmd} pivots meaning support and resistance from open? Previous day high low close etc..?
[15:49] {strider} Yeah, it's good to know what people mean by the words they use. :)
[15:49] {nemo} bk...plenty of resources on pivot points...they are also an indicator available in freestockcharts.com. They're technical levels formed by stock action amplitudes
[15:49] {dino} exls spike
[15:49] {bkhmd} thanks nemo good homework for the weekend
[15:52] {fernp} this is a pivot calculator I utilized often when I was young :http://www.pivotpointcalculator.com/ :-)
[15:53] {nemo} yeah...and many charting packages have them as indicators/studies
[15:53] {Threei} fern... I won't say anything about any pivots I used when I was young
[15:53] {bkhmd} thanks i think i have it available on my platform to automatically plot on chart i will play with it this weekend
[15:54] {fernp} lol
[15:54] {larisa} lol vad keeps it simple. More you know, more confusing life gets
[15:54] {bkhmd} do you think he really meant young or newer trader? lol
[15:55] {Threei} I don't know but ah, those pivots...
[15:55] {nemo} yes...but they often offer points of support and resistance
[15:55] {Threei} so true
[15:55] {larisa} for scalper to watch too many indicators is dangerous, you will miss the trade. need to keep it simple
[15:56] {_vgdanger} what was set up on aapl ?
[15:56] {bkhmd} throughout the day i draw line at points that the stock turns direction as support and resistance is this not pivot points?
[15:56] {dino} out shaw -.25
[15:56] {Threei} and be careful not to cloud your immediate perception by too many formal tools
[15:56] {_vgdanger} failed breakout?
[15:56] {bkhmd} to include previous day high low open
[15:56] {Threei} break of support
[15:58] {Threei} good thing it inval;idated before trigvgering

Nov 05 2009

Nice and active day with a lot of successful plays and very few stops. Most of trades were on RIMM and HIG, RIMM being played both long and short

Session Time: Thu Nov 05 00:00:00 2009
[08:04] {magoo} mcmorning

[08:13] {Threei} good morning
[08:13] {Threei} they seem to be set in expectations of losing half mil jobs every week
[08:14] {Threei} so much for "we will create or save"...
[08:25] {KSystems} he has the nobel prize
[08:25] {KSystems} dont critisize him
[08:25] {KSystems} or else.
[08:26] {Threei} I will soon too
[08:26] {Threei} I applied for it, referring to my intention to write the most significant book in history within next 5 years
[08:26] {Threei} and since those prizes are being given out for the intentions these days I fully expect to get it
[08:30] {Threei} US) INITIAL JOBLESS CLAIMS: 512K V 522KE; CONTINUING CLAIMS: 5.749M V 5.750ME
[08:30] {Threei} *(US) Q3 PRELIMINARY NONFARM PRODUCTIVITY: 9.5% V 6.5%E; UNIT LABOR COSTS: -5.2% V -4.2%E
[08:31] {Threei} this is so bizarre
[08:32] {nemo} you looking in the mirror 3i?
[08:32] {Threei} btw magoo... will you help me with spelling for that book?
[08:32] {Threei} look who woke up
[08:32] {nemo} look who just got in
[08:32] {nemo} I was sitting in a tree for a couple of hours
06[08:32] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large mirror because both nemo and his, Threei's reflection are simply irritating
[08:33] {nemo} no...mine's disease-inducing
[08:37] {nemo} so much for the big crash, huh?
[08:38] {Threei} ?
[08:38] {nemo} yesterday had that nice drop after I left, now big bounce
[08:38] {Threei} who said we were going to open down?
[08:39] {Threei} trading day is ahead still, no?
[08:39] {nemo} the voices in my head
[08:39] {Threei} oh
[08:39] {cosmo} you too nemo?
[08:39] {strider} morning crazy people
[08:39] {nemo} pot calling kettle black?
[08:39] {Threei} {--- makes a point of not answering strider
[08:40] {strider} and good morning to Vad, also.
[08:40] {nemo} Bird man chime in yet Vad?
[08:41] {Threei} hi strider
[08:41] {nemo} [08:39] {&Threei} {--- makes a point of not answering strider
[08:41] {strider} :)
[08:42] {Threei} nemo... getting lost in my motives and their changes?
[08:43] {nemo} your whimsical vaccillations?
[08:43] {nemo} vacillations
[08:43] {Threei} oh well... I didn't think it was so hard to figure out but...
[08:47] {magoo} vad, u got a sec?
[08:47] {Threei} depends
[08:47] {magoo} my system puked and i lost everthing, so setting p new laser screen here
[08:47] {Threei} ouch
[08:47] {Threei} need my layout?
[08:47] {magoo} which level 1 u use? is it board view?
[08:48] {magoo} nah, getting there
[08:48] {Threei} I don't
[08:48] {Threei} boardview is a list of stocks with L1 quotes
[08:48] {magoo} so u only follow stox thru charts and lev 2?
[08:48] {Threei} right
[08:48] {strider} Do you maybe have it saved as remote layout, magoo?
[08:49] {magoo} i did, total system crash-a-roo
[08:49] {magoo} ok, vad..where i fuiind the hard stop window/blotter
[08:50] {Threei} OMS module for stops
[08:50] {Threei} under Modules
[08:50] {magoo} ah..ok ty
[08:50] {strider} I thought remote layout was saved on Laser server.
[08:50] {Threei} blotter is under View
[08:50] {Threei} yes... mags, when you are done remaking it, save it as remote as well as local
[08:50] {strider} ah..can't get to it.. I see. sorry .
[08:50] {Threei} strider is correct
[08:52] {magoo} oh,ok i only saved local
[08:53] {magoo} so vad, curious..how u watch alot of potential stox with no lev 1/ how many charts u got up?
[08:54] {Threei} why would I want to watch A LOT of potential stocks?
[08:54] {Threei} procedure:
[08:54] {Threei} scanner spits them,
[08:54] {Threei} I surf through them,
[08:55] {Threei} when something looks good for setup, it stays on one set of L2/charts/T&S,
[08:55] {Threei} I surf further via second set,
[08:55] {Threei} when something appeals to me, it stays on second
[08:55] {Threei} do I really want to watch more?
[08:55] {Threei} how many positions at the same time can one manage?
[08:57] {Les} "Don't interrupt your brain's work by thinking". hmmm this place will be harder than I thought.
[08:57] {Les} gm :)
[08:57] {Threei} lol
[08:57] {Threei} morning
[08:57] {Threei} how is it hard?
[08:57] {Threei} most people find it easy not to think
[08:58] {Threei} couple more beers and they are there

[08:59] {Threei} 2

[09:00] {fernp} Good morning everybody
[09:00] {Threei} fern :)
[09:01] {magoo} how many open positions u do vad
[09:02] {Threei} depends on how fast stocks are
[09:02] {magoo} vad, charts setup here
[09:02] {Threei} I can manage two relatively fast ones at the same time, with one or two more slow ones sitting on a background,
[09:03] {Threei} if we are talking about hystreically fast, just one
[09:04] {Threei} what about chart? I have Volume and BB, price is in Candliesticks
[09:04] {Threei} bar width 2

[09:24] {Threei} no pressure eh?
[09:24] {bkhmd} hahaha
[09:24] {bkhmd} scared money here
[09:24] {bkhmd} lol
[09:24] {Threei} two things I want to try and catch morning pullbacks on:
[09:24] {Threei} HIG and RIMM
[09:26] {strider} With analysts saying that its share price had fallen too far, Research In Motion Ltd. /quotes/comstock/15*!rimm/quotes/nls/rimm (RIMM 59.22, +1.61, +2.80%) announced Thursday it would repurchase $1.2 billion of its stock.
[09:26] {Threei} yeah
[09:26] {Threei} I don't put much weight into buyback itself
[09:27] {Threei} most of them never happen
[09:27] {Threei} other than create nice soundbite
[09:27] {Les} wow hardened cynic you are vad
[09:28] {Threei} why? it's just a fact
[09:28] {Threei} 80-90% of announced buyback never come to fruition
[09:28] {dino} agree 3i, most never get completed. and usually the ones that do are completed at highs, not lows. they usually issue at lows
[09:29] {Threei} there you go
[09:29] {nemo} why is it realists are called cynics?
[09:29] {dino} plus, w/rimm, i feel the risk is the 48 gap coming into exp
[09:29] {Threei} RIMM gets initial pop out of it but mostly will simply move wit market
[09:29] {Les} so no thinking. cynicism is realism (wait, I'm just writing all these down):)
[09:30] {Threei} and no drinking hard liqor before 10 ama
[09:30] {Les} lol
[09:30] {Threei} now your mantras for the day are complete
[09:30] {bkhmd} nice gap
[09:30] {Les} oops my bad.
[09:30] {strider} here we go
[09:30] {ese} man this is bad news with rimm back at 59
[09:31] {ese} well.....i won't give up hope for 50
[09:31] {Threei} need deeper pullbacks on both
[09:31] {nemo} aig ballistic
[09:31] {Threei} initially thought of RIMM under 59 but happened too fast
[09:33] {Threei} I know it's really early but... guess who is onTV
[09:33] {nemo} Selma Hyek
[09:33] {Threei} OK, here comes HIG
[09:33] {Threei} you wish
[09:33] {cosmo} jerry springer
[09:33] {nemo} gag
[09:33] {Threei} dive into .10 should be it for HIG
[09:34] {Threei} and RIMM, doub,le bottom
[09:34] {Threei} 59 recross long'
[09:34] {Threei} .85 stop
[09:35] {Threei} .10 recross HIG long
[09:36] {Threei} stop under 24
[09:36] {Threei} HIG 1:1
[09:36] {bkhmd} ty
[09:36] {fernp} missed RIMM, still valid Vad?
[09:37] {bkhmd} same here
[09:37] {Threei} RIMM stalled a few cents under 1:1
[09:37] {Threei} yeah, same setup
[09:37] {dino} pru
[09:37] {Threei} with .85 being invalidation
[09:37] {fernp} ty for HIG

[09:48] {dino} pru stop is .67 fwiw
[09:48] {Les} didn't get order filled. was trying to sell when realised hadn't even bought. something new to learn... entry and exits
[09:48] {Threei} ummm
[09:48] {Threei} I am lost
[09:49] {Threei} if you haven't entered how sdo you take stop?
[09:49] {Les} makes two of us
[09:49] {nemo} you and 3i lost together...how romantic
[09:49] {Threei} ok, that desrves a slap, but I am laughing too hard
[09:49] {nemo} Hig long coming?
[09:49] {Les} late fill. distracted by kids in background. should have cut the buy order
[09:49] {Threei} yikes
[09:50] {bkhmd} who is 3i?
[09:50] {bkhmd} no kids allowed page 43 of the book
[09:50] {nemo} hig .70 break stop under shit
[09:50] {Threei} entering on original trigger on the way back is questionable even after 1:1 is reached, let alone 1:2
[09:51] {strider} good call dino, pru
[09:51] {nemo} I don't see it Vad
[09:51] {Les} sounds like laser is good for scalping, but I'll practice with IB on paper. Will see how it works out for me entering/exiting fast trades like that
[09:51] {dino} ty strider
[09:52] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .35 break, half lot
[09:52] {Les} double bottom on HIG?
[09:52] {nemo} Nothing about kids on pg .43
[09:52] {Threei} if stays under .50
[09:52] {Threei} no on HIG
[09:52] {nemo} too fast rimm
[09:52] {fernp} too fast
[09:53] {Threei} yeah... too bad, quick 1;1
[09:53] {strider} {--------oh ye of little faith.

[09:56] {Les} :)
[09:56] {Les} :)
[09:58] {Threei} I start thinking of HIG as short
[09:59] {Threei} .50 break is obvious trigger but we are too far from there,
[09:59] {Threei} something more aggressive would benicer
[10:00] {nemo} unless you get lower high here?
[10:00] {Threei} need clean setup
[10:00] {fernp} HIG is holding while FAS is falling
[10:00] {Threei} yeah, ruined
[10:00] {Threei} leaving the idea
[10:01] {Les} so u were suggesting big sell off today vad
[10:01] {strider} GLD looking restrained this morning.

[10:31] {Threei} - VIX index -4.5% to just under 26.50
[10:31] {Threei} QCOM looks like short on 43 break to me
[10:31] {Threei} I'd just prefer to do it with market dropping
[10:31] {Threei} but looks good
[10:32] {fernp} lots of candles w/shadows in BAC. bizarre
[10:32] {nemo} battleground
[10:33] {Threei} plenty of out of bounds prints on it for some reason
[10:33] {fernp} look at the current candle goes from .85 to .95 continuously

[10:34] {Threei} you'll see why
[10:34] {fernp} y
[10:35] {Threei} RIMM... down and down

[10:40] {strider} nemo, what charts are you using for pivots?
[10:41] {nemo} freestockcharts.com...uses Microsoft Silverlight, which can be an issue
[10:41] {strider} OK. I've been using that some also. No problems with silverlight. I use Firefox if that makes a difference.
[10:42] {nemo} can stick a bit with firefox...I run it in Chrome
[10:42] {strider} haven't had any problems so far
[10:42] {nemo} kewl

[10:45] {fernp} something is happening with financials today, i am trading WFC and FITB and both make out of bounds prints very often... better i leave them alone
[10:45] {fernp} AIG too
[10:45] {Threei} yes
[10:46] {Threei} seems to be widespread quote problem
[10:46] {Threei} trev... any insight?

[10:46] {nemo} excuse me...it's they again
[10:46] {fernp} i am out .25

[10:47] {fernp} yeah
[10:48] {Threei} watching RIMM for short setup
[10:49] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .70 break half lot

[10:49] {dino} mxwl .50 sm l
[10:51] {lasertrev} quoteserver 8 works well
[10:51] {Threei} held by fingertips RIMM

[10:56] {strider} thx
[10:59] {Threei} come on market, let's start selloff
[10:59] {Threei} I have that beer on the line
[11:00] {bkhmd} after lunch
[11:00] {Threei} in case it's important for someone:
[11:00] {Threei} *(HU) HUNGARY OCT BUDGET BALANCE YTD (HUF): -1.04BV -1.1B PRIOR
[11:01] {Threei} die RIMM
[11:02] {strider} out RIMM +.10
[11:02] {strider} not the best exit
[11:02] {Threei} 1:1
[11:03] {Threei} taking scalp
[11:04] {Threei} dino... I believe I still have a shot at that beer, but just n case... what kind you prefer?
[11:05] {bkhmd} dont give up vad its coming after lunch just not sure which day
[11:05] {bkhmd} lol
[11:05] {bkhmd} lol
[11:05] {Threei} 15:59] {dino} vad, a beer bet, up 100+ tomorrow's close
[11:05] {Threei} [16:00] {Threei} my bet for tomorrow is red close
[11:05] {Threei} [16:00] {Threei} beer it is
[11:05] {Threei} [16:00] {Threei} I'll take my favorite
[11:05] {Threei} [16:00] {Threei} Innis&Gunn
[11:05] {bkhmd} did you specify day?
[11:06] {dino} becks
[11:06] {strider} Got to read up on hard stops in Laser. Anyone use them?
[11:06] {Threei} only if I have to leave opwen position
[11:06] {bkhmd} ohhhhalways
[11:07] {Threei} it's quite intuitive to set up
[11:07] {Threei} OMS module
[11:07] {dino} but the day is young 3i, we lost this much yesterday
[11:07] {strider} stopped mxwl
[11:07] {Threei} and panel is pretty much like your typical VCR
[11:07] {dino} yes strider, sorry
[11:08] {strider} yeah....see it....select 'stop' and enter price, then click buy or sell?
[11:08] {strider} Hey, dino...nobody's twistin my arm here. I'm riding your coattails:)
[11:08] {Threei} no
[11:09] {Threei} after you set the order and clicked OK,
[11:09] {Threei} use green arrrow to activate order
[11:09] {Threei} red square to stop it
[11:09] {strider} I'm in the wrong place..don't seee what you're talking about. Where is OMS module?
[11:10] {Threei} ok
[11:10] {Threei} look at the menu
[11:10] {dino} understood
[11:10] {Threei} Modules
[11:10] {Threei} OMS module
[11:10] {strider} whoa..
[11:10] {strider} there tis
[11:10] {Threei} in the new window that pops up,
[11:10] {Threei} third button from the left is Add a new order
[11:11] {Threei} set all parameters,
[11:11] {Threei} click OK
[11:11] {strider} gotcha.
[11:11] {strider} what if price jumps stop price?
[11:11] {Threei} now use arrow and square to activate or desactivate order,
[11:11] {Threei} Modify button to change it
[11:11] {dino} fsys
[11:11] {Threei} etc
[11:11] {strider} do you set it as market exit?
[11:12] {Threei} I do the same as I do manuals,
[11:12] {Threei} a few cents leeway
[11:12] {strider} k
[11:12] {Threei} if it's very thick stock, I use market
[11:13] {dino} same here
[11:13] {fernp} when I use stops, I enter them directly from Level2, route-}stop, type-}stop, the stop price... and seem to work fine
[11:13] {dino} when you want to get out, get out
[11:13] {dino} tkes all emotion away
[11:13] {dino} takes
[11:14] {dino} and we know what emotion is....
[11:14] {Threei} I am not sure how that thing works fern
[11:14] {Threei} I mean I don't know mechanics
[11:14] {fernp} i think the difference is these stops are client side and OMS ofers server side stops
[11:14] {strider} fern...do you have to click sell or buy after entering stop price?
[11:14] {fernp} offers
[11:14] {Threei} I'd prefer trev to explain that
[11:15] {fernp} yes strider
[11:15] {Threei} last time I looked into that one it was mostly non-functional
[11:15] {Threei} and software guys told me it was in works
[11:15] {Threei} it was a few versions back andf I never asked again
[11:15] {strider} but it's working for you, fern?
[11:15] {fernp} this monday worked well
[11:16] {Threei} as a market order?
[11:16] {Threei} and how it routed?
[11:16] {fernp} Stop or StopL
[11:16] {fernp} StopL -} limit
[11:16] {fernp} stop -} market
[11:17] {strider} so stop and stopL works for either side of trade? Profit exit or loss exit?
[11:17] {fernp} yes
[11:17] {Threei} huh... I don't have stopL
[11:17] {strider} Can't do both though?
[11:17] {Threei} only stop
[11:17] {fernp} no profits is a limit order
[11:18] {strider} I've got Stop , StopL, and StopT===I guess trailing
[11:18] {strider} I'll go back and watch the videos.
[11:19] {Threei} funny... I don't even understand where you see those :)
[11:19] {strider} have to use advancedd style mouse menu.....
[11:19] {strider} lvl ii
[11:20] {dino} pru getting interesting again
[11:22] {strider} as long }
[11:22] {strider} ?
[11:23] {dino} y
[11:23] {dino} imo
[11:24] {dino} break of ,75 or on a whoosh down to .25ish
[11:24] {dino} break it is sm .75 l
[11:25] {dino} stop is .43
[11:26] {dino} tighten that to .49
[11:29] {strider} just watching PRU
[11:30] {dino} not working
[11:32] {strider} trying to stay afloat
[11:32] {dino} stopped
[11:33] {dino} that darn 11:00 curse
[11:34] {strider} FAST consolidating
[11:34] {strider} narrow range
[11:37] {dino} look whoosh to .15, gut was right
[11:37] {dino} brain was wrong
[11:38] {bkhmd} did u see 3 minute chart Dino?
[11:38] {dino} y
[11:39] {bkhmd} 3 min looks much different set up
[11:43] {dino} what do you see
[11:43] {dino} breakdown, whoosh, bounce i see
[11:43] {dino} wfmi app. lod
[11:43] {dino} lamr strong
[11:46] {dino} breaking down now pru
[11:47] {bkhmd} i wanted to short it when it fell below .62 but was scared lol
[11:49] {Threei} let the selling begin
[11:49] {Threei} I really want that beer
[11:50] {strider} HIG headless horseman
[11:50] {dino} you were right
[11:50] {dino} 42.52ish gap aug.
[11:50] {dino} strange tho, significant guidance raise
[11:51] {Threei} kay guys, my view is clouded by beer bet,
[11:51] {Threei} but
[11:51] {strider} wfmi interesting
[11:51] {Threei} if you feel selling is in cards
[11:51] {Threei} QID is our vehicle
[11:51] {Threei} either .80 long if stays above .70
[11:52] {Threei} or shorting market into bounce by attempt to catch QID long closer to .60
[11:52] {Threei} word of warning: can cost a stop or two while downtrend establishes
[11:53] {Threei} SRS is another option
[11:53] {Threei} .30 break
[11:54] {Threei} with stop under .20 for scalpers, under .15 for day traders
[11:55] {strider} quotes stuck again
[11:55] {bkhmd} its not ur system
[11:56] {Threei} quotes look OK here
[11:56] {strider} Had QID lvlii stuck
[11:56] {Threei} there are some odd prints but I don't think it's Laser
[11:56] {bkhmd} i froze also Stride but ok now
[11:56] {strider} wasn't in sync with t&s
[11:57] {Threei} see these wird ones at .67 on QID?
[11:57] {Threei} they are out of bounds
[11:57] {Threei} not real
[11:57] {strider} I think I remember that Qcharts had some routing options.
[11:58] {strider} when these problems arose
[11:58] {Threei} but whatever the reason is, let's not miss this golden opportunity:
06[11:58] * Threei slaps lasertrev around a bit with a large out of bounds prints
[11:59] {strider} long QID .81 small
[11:59] {fernp} is Laser Vad, in my other plataform there are no problem and charts have not those shadows
[11:59] {bkhmd} why lasertrev fault?
[11:59] {Threei} ty fern
[12:00] {Threei} all the more reasons to slap trev

[12:10] {larisa} you need to worry about download mostly
[12:10] {Threei} yeah, upload is mostly irrelevant
[12:11] {larisa} at the beginning of trading era I was trading through dish that would only download. Upload was diap up :)
[12:11] {Threei} what are you getting magoo?
[12:12] {nemo} aig volatility

[12:13] {Threei} takes a while to develop from the frozen state, but unless shakes us out first, should be a good downtrend
[12:13] {Threei} 3 mags
[12:13] {dino} whippy
[12:14] {strider} Vad, what's your nominal download, e.g., what isp says you're buying?
[12:14] {Threei} if things go as I feel they should, it won't be a scalp
[12:14] {Threei} I see QID going to 23.20, and possibly higher,
[12:14] {nemo} QID vad
[12:15] {Threei} but then again, it may be beer bet talking
[12:15] {dino} slurring
[12:15] {Threei} I don't remember strider... been quite a while since I signed up with them
[12:15] {Threei} nemo?
[12:16] {nemo} answered
[12:16] {strider} Nice bull flag on QID (he says, hopefully)
[12:16] {magoo} vad, our test shows .64 download mb/s UNREAL..theres the issue
[12:16] {strider} triangle, rather
[12:17] {Threei} .64???
[12:17] {Threei} sheesh
[12:17] {magoo} yeah
[12:17] {Threei} there you go
[12:17] {Threei} that's the root of your quote problems
[12:17] {magoo} yup...unfortunately after smashing 2 computers and buying the fastest mothers out there
[12:17] {strider} It's going to vary a lot, depending on where the server is you're pinging.
[12:18] {Threei} it's less than larisa was getting with half-shot satellite rusted from outside and inside
[12:18] {magoo} wed next week enter information age
[12:19] {Threei} you can use postal pigeons with the same success
[12:19] {dino} then i can make mistakes much faster
[12:19] {Threei} hehe
[12:19] {strider} and get shat upon for your efforts.
[12:19] {nemo} janitor!
[12:20] {nemo} you guys are so close to NY too
[12:21] {nemo} everybody I know who has had dsl hates it
[12:22] {dino} we do now too
[12:22] {dino} and get this, cable will be less$
[12:22] {fernp} mags, could be someone downloading movies, software, etc... if someone is using p2p programs can saturate bandwidth
[12:23] {Threei} you mean, magoo downloading porn will negatively affect dino's trading?
[12:23] {bkhmd} hahahahah
[12:23] {bkhmd} hahahahah
[12:23] {fernp} EXACTLY
[12:23] {fernp} you read my mind, but i am a bit polite
[12:23] {nemo} not on dsl...cable
[12:24] {bkhmd} downloading is not the problem viewing is what creates the problems bad for eyes
[12:24] {Threei} count on me for being impolite
[12:24] {dino} roflol
[12:24] {Threei} btw, during initial DSL/cable war this argument of shared pipe was main one cited by DSL
[12:24] {Threei} never really happened
[12:24] {nemo} back to the thumb joke?
[12:25] {Threei} AFAIK, cable winds handily
[12:25] {strider} lots of outside the market trades on QID also.
[12:25] {nemo} Vad on this last aig rise you've got descending volumes at peaks and at resistance
[12:26] {Threei} I don't see any significance to it
[12:26] {Threei} it's a listless time
[12:27] {Threei} things move in narrow range up and down with no rhyme or reason
[12:27] {nemo} yeah, but dropped big at 11:40
[12:27] {Threei} until we see decisive break, nothing is really readable
[12:29] {Threei} for a change, Jon Voight on TV
[12:29] {Raven} I have AT&T DSL bundle with TV and VOIP ... download speed 6M ... workslike a charm
[12:29] {nemo} slow download
[12:29] {Raven} 6M is slow?
[12:30] {nemo} very
[12:30] {Threei} 19 here R
[12:30] {Threei} 28 for larisa
[12:30] {nemo} I average 15
[12:30] {bkhmd} 13 here
[12:30] {Raven} I can get 20M if I pay more ... does not seem necessary
[12:30] {nemo} the US has the slowest average internet speeds in the developed countries
[12:30] {Threei} well, you don't have brother downloading porn next to you
[12:31] {Raven} there is that
[12:31] {bkhmd} hahahah
[12:31] {bkhmd} hahah
[12:31] {bkhmd} takes all the bandwidth
[12:31] {Raven} I ditched cable long ago ... the speed varied all over the map
[12:31] {bkhmd} i would think it would depend on area
[12:31] {Raven} DSL is rock steady
[12:32] {nemo} cable architecture siphons bandwith as users are added
[12:32] {Raven} and yes ... the area makes a difference for sure
[12:33] {Raven} right nemo ... and my neighbors must have been downloading a lot of porn
[12:33] {bkhmd} If your close to the DMARC then DSL is great
[12:33] {nemo} farther away from the cities slower cable is also
[12:33] {Raven} like most shit ... everything is local;
[12:34] {bkhmd} HIG trying to break?
[12:34] {nemo} quoting Tip Rraven?
[12:34] {Raven} I guess
[12:36] {strider} Don't interrupt your brain's thinking by working.
[12:41] {nemo} C&H on Hig?
[12:41] {strider} Anyone besides Vad know what their nominal download speed is from ISP? I need to upgrade mine, and don't want to under-or -overbuy.
[12:41] {nemo} or, no lunch-time break outs
[12:41] {Threei} it's so little
[12:41] {Threei} I don't think I'd trust it
[12:41] {nemo} 15
[12:42] {strider} k
[12:42] {Raven} 6
[12:42] {dino} going to 15
[12:42] {strider} Nemo, you''ve still been having 'issues', though, haven't you.....with freezing.
[12:42] {bkhmd} 13
[12:42] {bkhmd} 13 but i pay lil extra i wanted more speed for the porn
[12:42] {bkhmd} lol
[12:42] {bkhmd} lol
[12:42] {bkhmd} hate waiting
[12:42] {bkhmd} lol
[12:43] {nemo} only in Laser, everything ele works fine
[12:43] {strider} I've only got 5 at the moment....but I used to run MBTrading and 7 screens of QCharts on 3 mg and never had freezin problems.
[12:44] {strider} Not hving problems now with MBT either.
[12:44] {nemo} o.k. I bring up board view in LASER but the header so I can move the window is above the upper border of LASER..what do I do?
[12:44] {strider} I'm thinking it has to do with one of the nodes of the route Laser takes to get to us.
[12:45] {strider} Nemo..have to temporarily change resolution of your monitor to get it.
[12:45] {strider} Increase resolution.
[12:45] {strider} Or you might be able to go into monitor settings and move screen around .
[12:46] {nemo} no, it's not above my monitor, it's above the LASER desktop
[12:47] {strider} in that case, you're screwed.
[12:48] {strider} Vad are you in QID?
[12:48] {strider} If so, what's your stop}
[12:49] {Threei} half strider
[12:49] {Threei} with intend to add second half around .60 if it strengthens from there or get stolpped if loses it
[12:49] {strider} Nemo...can you change Laser to full screen? Square box at top right? that might do it.
[12:49] {strider} thx vad
[12:50] {magoo} in anything else
[12:50] {Threei} kind of trying to combine two strategies in one
[12:51] {_vgdanger} hello..im new to this room. had a question on the hig play off he open was it a capitulation play or low bb play? also was hurn play euphoria?
[12:51] {Threei} hi
[12:51] {magoo} hi
[12:51] {Threei} HURN I remember,
[12:52] {Threei} that was JBE failure kind of setup,
[12:52] {Threei} loss of support of consolidation range
[12:52] {Threei} HIG first play I need to referesh
[12:52] {_vgdanger} i see
[12:52] {Threei} let me look
[12:53] {Threei} ahha... 59 trigger
[12:53] {Threei} no
[12:53] {nemo} hig was capitulation
[12:54] {Threei} 24.10
[12:54] {Threei} yes, capitulatory selloff
[12:56] {nemo} sort aig .99
[12:59] {_vgdanger} now du have have hard 15 cent 10 outs for most of your plays..im having a hard time figuring out the logic behind your break and stops..are they base on your own risk management?
[12:59] {_vgdanger} kind of different from your book and scalping course
[13:00] {Threei} there is nothing different, it's the same system and those same setups
[13:00] {Threei} show me a particular play so I could explain the logic of stop placement
[13:04] {fernp} nemo to drag that board view, you can go to window --} cascade. But all your others windows are going to mess
[13:04] {nemo} ty
[13:04] {_vgdanger} ure....how bout the hig? i understand the play but the low from what i remember was below 24...like around 23.84 based on the candle unless im getting the time of call and relevant 1 min candle messed up
[13:04] {nemo} i'm in the middle of aig right now
[13:05] {fernp} good luck then :-)
[13:05] {Threei} 09:35] {Alert} Threei .10 recross HIG long
[13:05] {Threei} [09:36] {Alert} Threei stop under 24
[13:05] {nemo} mesed up the stop
[13:05] {Threei} this one?
[13:06] {_vgdanger} thats the one
[13:06] {Threei} HIG lost 24 only on 9:38
[13:06] {Threei} at that moment 24 was unbroken low
[13:07] {Threei} and it went up to .28 after breaking .10
[13:07] {Threei} which constitutes solidly over 1:1 for a scalp
[13:07] {_vgdanger} gotcha
[13:08] {Threei} :)
[13:10] {_vgdanger} ive noticed you play hig quite a bit based on the trading logs....any particular reason.? just a good read on it i suppose?
[13:10] {Threei} I tend to stick with what works until it stops working
[13:10] {Threei} and HIG behaves amaZingly well lately
[13:10] {_vgdanger} that does make sense
[13:11] {Threei} one day it will stop and I'll drop it like 17 years old drops his girlfried if she stops dying her hair
[13:11] {_vgdanger} lol
[13:11] {nemo} never heard that one before
[13:11] {Threei} because I just came up with it
[13:12] {nemo} let it be the last time
[13:12] {Threei} and believe me I had 3 less politically correct versions
[13:12] {nemo} dcc please
[13:12] {Threei} it reallt changes
[13:12] {Threei} really
[13:12] {Threei} I remember periods whehn different stocks worked for aheile
[13:12] {Threei} then stopped
[13:13] {nemo} wow, what butchering
[13:13] {Threei} UAUA was our hero for a while,
[13:13] {Threei} DRYS
[13:13] {Threei} PALM
[13:14] {_vgdanger} so now ts hig and rimm,,,i remember cat was a frequent play on your logs
[13:15] {Threei} right
[13:15] {_vgdanger} so now its^
[13:15] {Threei} then CAT became so jumpy
[13:15] {Threei} I am hesitant to play it these days
[13:15] {fernp} also some solars vad
[13:16] {Threei} yeah... ESLR, when it was a decent stock and not today's cheap piece of crap
[13:17] {Threei} and AIG, oh my dear AIG
[13:17] {Threei} how beuatiful you used to be
[13:17] {Threei} but along with those usual suspects now and then scanner spits out something new
[13:17] {Threei} like NTRI a day ago
[13:17] {nemo} waxing poetically here 3i
[13:17] {Threei} that's me... all poetic
[13:19] {_vgdanger} also what is your criteria on buying on pullbacks on a one minute? what makes you decide to play an aggressive entry in general.
[13:20] {Threei} a bit too general question... there are variations
[13:20] {Threei} oullback into clearly defined support for instance
[13:20] {Threei} pullback
[13:20] {Threei} it's easy to show on the chart
[13:20] {_vgdanger} i see
[13:20] {Threei} aggressive entries are not always pullback entries by default
[13:21] {Threei} sometimes it's simply entry "in advance", before actual breakout
[13:21] {bkhmd} RIMM recovered
[13:21] {Threei} btw, guess who is on TV - and this time it's not Jon Voigt
[13:22] {bkhmd} Melissa Lee?
[13:22] {nemo} aig momo again?
[13:22] {Threei} it is
[13:22] {Threei} mags
[13:22] {Threei} see AIG?
[13:23] {_vgdanger} do u use all the scanner windows that come with scanner. any ones that are used more frequently than others?
[13:23] {_vgdanger} there are quite a bit
[13:23] {Threei} lookk at AIG 1 min
[13:23] {Threei} see support at .50?
[13:23] {Threei} pullback to it would be a clean example of pullback entry
[13:24] {Threei} and if it behaves like it does when momo comes, it goes to 39.50 soon
[13:24] {Threei} at least
[13:24] {nemo} Qs and spy's flattening...faz DB?
[13:24] {Threei} scanner windows - not all at once of course
[13:25] {Threei} they are good for different markets
[13:25] {Threei} breakouts, breakdowns
[13:25] {_vgdanger} i see what u mean with the aig
[13:25] {Threei} 39 be taken
[13:27] {Threei} like hot knife through margarine
[13:29] {Threei} pullback after break
[13:29] {Threei} rather normal for this animal
[13:29] {Threei} support is right here
[13:29] {Threei} around .70
[13:30] {Threei} see the middle line of BBs?
[13:30] {Threei} touched it and bounced
[13:30] {_vgdanger} yes i see it
[13:30] {Threei} this is not a very strong support but it dropped very fast into it
[13:30] {Threei} I wouldn't consider it an entry if it slid slowly
[13:30] {Threei} but fast vertical drop, yes
[13:31] {Threei} kind of hard to comment this kind of fundamental things on so fast stock, but just trying to describe what I am l,ooking for
[13:31] {Threei} immediate resolution helps to see how concepts work
[13:31] {nemo} market and $ decoupled to . $ barely down
[13:32] {Threei} .50 - .55 next support
[13:32] {_vgdanger} would you ever consider pay once the 39 lifted originally?
[13:33] {_vgdanger} hoping for a run to 50c?
[13:33] {Threei} buying 39 break?
[13:33] {Threei} no, not on AIG
[13:33] {Threei} AIG is much better play on pullbacks during momo
[13:33] {Threei} on breakouts it tends to shake out hard
[13:33] {nemo} this not as strong momo as Tuesday though
[13:33] {Threei} what magoo calls heavy breather
[13:34] {nemo} that's after he's downloaded
[13:34] {Threei} and I don't want to even think where he got the reference
[13:34] {fernp} lol
[13:34] {magoo} :)
[13:34] {Threei} now look how it paused
[13:35] {Threei} this I don't like as a forecaster of bounce after pullback
[13:35] {Threei} I want it to dive into support rapidly
[13:35] {Threei} this is more like slide in AIG terms
[13:35] {Threei} I wouldn't try to entr near .50 now, rather wait for fast break
[13:36] {Threei} and see if you can get .35 - .40
[13:37] {larisa} 39 38.50 short AIG scary as hell
[13:37] {Threei} wtg larisa
[13:37] {Threei} you are fearless gal
[13:37] {larisa} stopped out 38.95 -39, shorted again :)
[13:37] {Threei} shorting into such momo takes dino's guts
[13:38] {dino} gj lari
[13:38] {larisa} I am always early
[13:38] {Threei} bounce eventually worked but this is not my cup of tea
[13:39] {bkhmd} {---slaps larisa with Jewels Flowers and whatever else she wants
[13:39] {bkhmd} good call
[13:40] {Threei} whatever else she wants? someone's smitten...
[13:41] {larisa} 13.31 bounce top was much safer short
[13:43] {larisa} I dunno if it shows on time bars though, i use ticks for scalps like that
[13:43] {strider} yo8 buying here vad?
[13:43] {dino} sm l ddm .00
[13:44] {Threei} buying what?
[13:44] {strider} QID
[13:44] {Threei} not into selling
[13:44] {Threei} if it strengthens and starts upticking yes
[13:45] {Threei} lost support instead
[13:45] {strider} I'm out
[13:45] {Threei} yeah
[13:47] {nemo} think you're going to owe beer today Vad
[13:47] {larisa} what was the bet?
[13:47] {Threei} that'll be very unfortunate
[13:47] {Threei} dino bet on +100 close, I bet on red
[13:48] {larisa} I wanted red today too
[13:49] {strider} HIG c&h?
[13:49] {dino} remind me not to send you xmas card larisa
[13:49] {dino} :)
[13:50] {Threei} yes on HIG
[13:50] {larisa} lol
[13:50] {larisa} I did not know about your bet :)
[13:51] {dino} in that case, all is forgiven
[13:51] {larisa} ty
[13:51] {dino} you are going to laugh, but "gut" is saying up 250 or so today
[13:52] {Les} various tech analysts were looking for retest of long term trend line today. guess its playing out
[13:53] {larisa} 10k enemy line :)
[13:53] {Les} that's aggressive talk :)
[13:55] {Threei} 'em are fighting words
[13:56] {dino} pru sm l .30
[13:57] {Threei} what the heck is going on with USD?
[13:57] {_vgdanger} whats ur out on pru?
[13:57] {Threei} you see this on UUP?
[13:58] {bkhmd} wghat was that Vad
[13:58] {nemo} holy shit
[13:58] {Threei} that was my question bk
[13:58] {dino} .98
[13:58] {Threei} unfair to throw it back at me
[13:59] {nemo} you want fair.duh
[13:59] {Threei} must be some data error
[13:59] {Threei} I've never seen anything like this
[13:59] {Les} strange. no change in dollar index
[14:00] {magoo} look RIMM here boss
[14:01] {Threei} hmmm
[14:01] {Threei} something with data today, all over the map... I don't feel comfortable
[14:01] {magoo} oh shit..vad, i need that trade "click" sound when i fill...no longer there
[14:02] {Threei} dcc me your e-mail, I'll send it to you
[14:02] {fernp} look at FAA (airlines etf)
[14:02] {fernp} 4 prints all day
[14:02] {magoo} sent
[14:03] {Threei} sent back
[14:03] {nemo} I just sent it also
[14:04] {magoo} oh oh..another setup issue
[14:04] {magoo} in trade settings vad, Route out "check all of them correct"?
[14:05] {Threei} yes
[14:05] {magoo} Reserve {in center} uncheck all correct?
[14:06] {magoo} reserve vad?
[14:06] {Threei} your choice
[14:06] {Threei} I have them checked
[14:06] {Threei} might be my general sneakiness
[14:06] {magoo} and Default..what u doing there?follow lev 2 "check?
[14:07] {Threei} unchecked on mine
[14:07] {magoo} nasdaq ?listed?

[14:07] {Threei} okay... we start looking like selloff coming again...
[14:07] {Threei} a bit torn here
[14:08] {Threei} don't want to try same thing again and again
[14:08] {magoo} in default, u write anything in box after nas and listed?
[14:08] {Threei} and don't want to miss it when it comes
[14:08] {Threei} I am not sure mags, it seems lkike a lot changed... ask trev is it still matters
[14:09] {larisa} chart spikes all over the place, it is not only Laser problem
[14:09] {magoo} ok
[14:10] {nemo} it's they again
[14:10] {larisa} always :)
[14:10] {Threei} I suspected as much, it didn't look like platform problem
[14:11] {Threei} it's feed that creates such strange discrepancies
[14:11] {fernp} Have to go. good evening everybody. see u all tomorrow.
[14:11] {larisa} tired of clearing up the spikes today :)
[14:11] {larisa} bye fern
[14:11] {Threei} in such cases, sometimes all platforms are affected, and sometimes some of them
[14:11] {nemo} noches fern
[14:11] {Threei} take care fern

[14:28] {Threei} dollar just doesn't move like this
[14:28] {nemo} yeah...relationships are breaking down
[14:28] {dino} run out of new shares uup
[14:28] {magoo} AIG
[14:28] {Threei} neither USO or HLD reflect anything even remotelyresembling what's going qith UUP
[14:28] {dino} could make uup run up higher than underlying value
[14:29] {dino} needs sec clearance foe more shares
[14:29] {nemo} scary, but could signal confidence in the economy
[14:29] {Threei} AIG momo may come
[14:30] {Threei} RIMM 1:1
[14:30] {bkhmd} out ty vad
[14:30] {Threei} welcome

[14:31] {jmb} thanks vad
[14:31] {Threei} :)
[14:31] {Threei} despite losing beer bet dramatically, our hit rate looks very nice today
[14:31] {Threei} I haven't counted though... just from memory
[14:33] {magoo} perfect time for AIG squeeze
[14:33] {magoo} '
[14:33] {Threei} how would you know, 5 minutes ago you didn't even have sound alert on executed order

[15:00] {Threei} Pepelatz an interplanetary spacecraft
[15:00] {Threei} Gravitsapa a component for the pepelatz which allows intergalactic travel
[15:00] {Threei} there
[15:01] {Threei} Tsapa a component for different machines. A big tsapa is a very important component for the pepelatz. A small tsapa is a component for the gravitsapa; without the small tsapa, a gravitsapa will not work. Tsapa is similar to a very rusty screwnut
[15:01] {dino} we just say rocket fuel and rocket
[15:01] {Threei} well, try for this last part then
[15:01] {strider} Gravitsapa -sounds like what you eat with mashed potatoes.

[15:05] {Threei} - Note: Senate approved the bill yesterday
[15:05] {Threei} - jobless benefits extended for up to 20 weeks; current homeowners are now eligible for credit

[16:01] {patience} one of those winters where you have to mow the lawn throughout
[16:01] {Threei} so far, yes
[16:03] {dino} chris grey asks on realmoney; "if deficits and money printing don't matter, why do we need interest rates and taxes?" lol
[16:03] {Threei} good question actually
[16:06] {dino} he goes on "why not borrow an infinite amount of money at zero rates and never pay it back? then we would all be rich, right?...:)
[16:06] {Threei} no need even to borrow
[16:06] {Threei} if oprinting doesn't mattre, print
[16:07] {dino} hopefully the politicians don't really believe this
[16:08] {Threei} many left ones do
[16:08] {dino} unfortunately true

Nov 04 2009

Nice day with 4 wins out of 5 calls, and the stop was whooping 6 cents. The only disappointment was that we got the right read on the selling closer to the end of day but haven't found right entry for FAZ, missing potentially full dollar play.


Session Time: Wed Nov 04 00:00:00 2009

[07:10] {ese} good morning.......
[07:11] {ese} i have this sneaking suspicion that no one is going to be up this early but i'm just chiming into to say that i have to catch a 7:00am ferry off the island

[08:10] {strider} ese:)
[08:11] {strider} Listened to conference call last night. Didn't seem so terrible to me, but what do I know?
[08:11] {nemo} well...a couple of months ago they got kiboshed by the perceived threat of coming competition
[08:12] {strider} Yeah. dino pointed it out to me. He said you & he played it then.

[08:15] {strider} Yahoo finance? Is it wrong?
[08:15] {nemo} with any of that stuff, it's how fresh the data
[08:15] {strider} They only publish it once a month , don't they? Was from the middle of October.
[08:16] {nemo} That's my point. Like swinging at a fastball after the catcher is throwing it back to the pitcher

[09:12] {Threei} first camear I held in my hands was Smena 6, and I was 8
[09:12] {cosmo} nice racoon you got there

[09:14] {strider} Do you sell them?
[09:14] {Threei} only as a stock, just to make a hobby pay for itself

[09:15] {Threei} but I will look into selling them as prints... when I find time to look into it :)
[09:15] {strider} STEC isn't exactly jumping off the chart, is it nemo?

[10:03] {nemo} wfc
[10:03] {nemo} oops wrong window
[10:04] {nemo} so numbers come in below expecations and we get a spike
[10:05] {Threei} my feeling is, it's not about any numbers today,
[10:05] {Threei} it's about language in FOMC decision
[10:05] {Threei} either they stay with "keeping rates low for extended period of time"
[10:06] {dino} ash sm l .52
[10:06] {nemo} so market thinks, so far anyway, Fed not pulling the punch bowl for the big banks?
[10:06] {Threei} or they say "may start hiking rates sooner than expected" - and market drops like there is no tomorrow
[10:06] {dino} cedc jumpy
[10:07] {Threei} HIG was worth third trade eh

[10:18] {Threei} sometimes internet weather is not a straightforward logic, mags
[10:18] {nemo} there are a series of network tests you can do at pcpitstop.com
[10:20] {fernp} you should try to disable your antivirus when you are running laser
[10:20] {fernp} I have noticed a marked improvement receiving data since I did that
[10:21] {strider} which antivirus are you using?
[10:21] {fernp} NOD32
[10:21] {Les} u still keep a firewall going don't you fern?
[10:21] {strider} that's informative:)

[11:24] {Les} wow. Toyoto withdrawing from F1. Subaru withdrawn from WRC. Japanese companies see bad times ahead.
[11:25] {Threei} or just don't see the need to spend money on that
[11:25] {nemo} F1 high end racing though
[11:26] {Threei} self-indulgence more than practically useful advertising venue at this point
[11:27] {Les} really. I thought they took brand advertising in racing more seriously.
[11:27] {Threei} things tend to shrink during tough economic times, and unnecessary fat gets trimmed first
[11:27] {dino} grmn rinsed
[11:27] {fernp} Vad, buy some Qs shares to see if the chart moves a bit
[11:28] {Threei} lol
[11:28] {Threei} thank you for such a strong faith in my market-moving powers
[11:28] {fernp} lol
[11:28] {Threei} HIG
[11:28] {Threei} let;s see if we get double bottom
[11:28] {Threei} dive to .55-.60 area
[11:28] {Threei} for entry with stop under .50
[11:30] {Threei} .60 break long
[11:30] {Threei} stop under .50
[11:30] {Threei} scalp or partial, personal choice
[11:30] {Threei} can't tell anything really
[11:31] {Threei} will do a compromise: partial 2/3
[11:31] {fernp} scalped from .57 to .67 ty Vad
[11:31] {Threei} welcome sir
[11:32] {Threei} 1:1
[11:32] {Threei} 2/3 out
[11:32] {Threei} stop to .54
[11:33] {Threei} 1:2

[11:33] {Threei} .83
[11:33] {Threei} that was easy
[11:34] {Les} +.11 paper trades until further notice
[11:34] {Threei} elegant setup, planned in advance and worked like textbook example
[11:35] {fernp} today HIG is really our friend. 4 trades here, 4 winners :)
[11:35] {dino} elegant, hmmmm
[11:35] {dino} stec lod
[11:35] {Threei} too metrosexual term dino?
[11:35] {Threei} HIG is my favorite stock of late fern
[11:36] {nemo} aig jumped my bid
[11:36] {Threei} we have like 8 out of 10 hit rate on it
[11:38] {Threei} four reasons for my relative inactivity
[11:38] {Threei} 1. we have 100% hit rate today so far, and I want to keep it this way so I could ask "can I go home/"
[11:38] {strider} my relatives aren't that active, either.
[11:38] {Threei} 2. market is solid frozen at the moment
[11:38] {Threei} lol strider
[11:39] {Threei} 3. the closer we are to FOMC the less readability in the market
[11:39] {Threei} and
[11:39] {nemo} NUMBER FOUR!!!!
[11:39] {Threei} 4. fern totally has me confused - I have hard time envisioning plant as an animal with two eyes
[11:39] {nemo} shouldn't cogitate such things
[11:40] {Threei} and now nemo makes me reach for dictionary
[11:40] {strider} stec looks pretty sick
[11:40] {nemo} cogito ergo sum...same thing
[11:40] {Threei} doesn't matter.... I see word longer than two syllables, I reach for dictionary... reflex
[11:41] {nemo} but you use that fundibulum thing all the time
[11:41] {strider} Russian doesn't have 2 syllable words , does it? All 10 and 12 syllables.
[11:41] {Threei} chronoclastic infundibulum
[11:41] {nemo} yeah....that
[11:41] {Threei} but that's Kurt Vonnegut's fault
[11:42] {nemo} Ahhh...pick on the dead guy
[11:42] {Threei} why strider... vod-ka
[11:42] {strider} oh, yeah. And 'purple jesus'
[11:42] {Les} ??
[11:42] {strider} southern drink
[11:43] {strider} grape juice and anything alcoholic
[11:43] {strider} really nasty
[11:43] {Les} ok. Was thinking not well chosen marketing idea if the brandname was purple jesus
[11:44] {strider} You could sell it here....if it didn't cost more than 99 cents
[11:44] {Les} over here we call that wine
[11:44] {strider} no. PJ comes from a bottle. Wine comes from a box.
[11:44] {strider} now, hig gets dbl bottom
[11:45] {nemo} lower volume than the last
[11:47] {strider} dio, hsic?
[11:47] {strider} dino
[11:48] {dino} freaking rinses today
[11:49] {Threei} fern, you here?
[11:49] {fernp} yes, and you have been very imprudent. You have pronounced "...sexual" word, being mags near here
[11:49] {Threei} tru... my mistake
[11:49] {fernp} anything can happen
[11:49] {dino} hsic, watching it, but it moved quite a bit off lows imo
[11:50] {strider} true. average range only 1.12
[11:50] {Threei} I just wanted to tell you: if you are having crisis of identity, don't worry about it... nemo can't tell whether he is a lost fish or mad captain of a submarine for years, and it doesn't prevent him from trading
[11:51] {nemo} or the guy that stuck a stick in the cyclops eye
[11:51] {fernp} lol thank you I needed those words
[11:51] {Threei} or that
[11:54] {strider} re: HIG. Vad I'd noticed that you seem to be trading mostly listed these days.
[11:54] {fernp} don't you remenber the email you got from that guy who claimed, we are not real traders because we are kidding all time?
[11:55] {fernp} I think he was right :-)
[11:55] {Threei} lol
[11:56] {Threei} strider, there is a very thin, almost non-existent line between OTC and listeds these days
[11:56] {Threei} ever since ECNs were introduced on NYSE and AMEX, this line became fuzzy,
[11:57] {Threei} and they progresessed to almost similar trading
[11:57] {dino} that grmn is trading a buck range in minutes
[11:57] {Threei} It was very different when specialists handled most of the trading on listed stocks
[11:57] {Threei} and about what we tade at this moment, well,
[11:58] {Threei} NASDAQ and listeds are different in sectors represenattion,
[11:58] {Threei} we go more toward NASDASQ trading when techs start getting active
[11:58] {Threei} remember calls on JNPR for instance?
[11:58] {strider} yeah
[11:59] {Threei} and when it's financials that are most active, we are NYSE-bound almost by definition
[12:00] {dino} red scanners
[12:03] {strider} Even when charts aren't freezing, there often seems to be a slight lag betw. t&S and chart update. Anyone else notice that?
[12:03] {magoo} mine froze just then
[12:03] {magoo} TERRIBLE
[12:04] {Threei} really something on your coast guys.. ruunning smoothly here
[12:04] {magoo} almost unusable at this point
[12:04] {strider} They've got 20 quote servers and only 5 chart servers.
[12:05] {fernp} I think T/S is always more reliable than chart and Level2
[12:06] {Threei} yes fern
[12:07] {nemo} yeah, there's gonna' be a chart lag
[12:07] {dino} hsic strider, lets see if it holds .00
[12:09] {strider} almost shorted that sucker at .75
[12:10] {dino} sorry, thought you were going long at .75
[12:10] {dino} feels long to me here
[12:10] {strider} un-uh/
[12:12] {strider} it's still 1.50 off the lows. I'm not going to risk a long play hhere.
[12:14] {strider} was a CC at 10AM/ Vad, you got any news on hsic?
[12:15] {Threei} not since earnings at 7
[12:15] {strider} thanks.
[12:15] {dino} earnings
[12:16] {dino} lowered guidance
[12:16] {Threei} LVS seling picks up

[12:28] {dino} pru l sm .50
[12:28] {Threei} why?
[12:28] {dino} .51
[12:29] {nemo} what why?
[12:30] {Threei} [12:28] {Les} hgsi @ 27?
[12:30] {nemo} oh..thought you referring to dino
[12:30] {dino} who what
[12:30] {Threei} lol
[12:30] {dino} 3i has me on ignore
[12:31] {Threei} it's on and off dino, depending on how I feel about T-rexes and stegosauruses on a particular day
[12:31] {Les} ok, me. 27, round number, good for a bounce? MACDh coming off bottom and heading to zero.
[12:32] {Threei} I don't trade like this Les
[12:32] {Threei} I need a setup
[12:32] {strider} hsic looking more like a short, eh dino?
[12:32] {Threei} whole number is just something to watch for but not a setup in and off itself
[12:33] {dino} dk strider, holding well, it to market imo
[12:33] {Threei} and MACD... I wouldn't know, I don't watch it all :)
[12:33] {strider} you want extra cheese with that?
[12:33] {nemo} hgsi double bottom, would need break of .05 with stop of .95 and increasing volume
[12:33] {dino} but who knows, your guess as good (or better) than mine
[12:33] {Les} 27 is earlier zone of horizantal consolidation, yeh I know u don't watch it
[12:34] {dino} grmn feels like re-test in making
[12:34] {strider} do you play shorts/?
[12:34] {nemo} don't wear shorts
[12:34] {dino} yes
[12:34] {Les} ok, so lack of vol. not helping out...
[12:34] {strider} just didn't remember.
[12:36] {dino} more longs last few day, mkt down 7% fast. odds, imo
[12:36] {dino} grmn sm l .50
[12:36] {dino} we get around 10,100; 1090 shorting more
[12:41] {Les} there's yer volume in HGSI
[12:41] {nemo} see that volume increas on break of .05, that would have been it
[12:42] {Les} yeh there is definate pattern to that. that's what i came here to learn
[12:44] {fernp} PRU on lows, will it break lod?
[12:44] {Threei} Long Setup: LVS .05 if stays above 15
[12:45] {nemo} big stop
[12:46] {Threei} no read on PRU
[12:46] {fernp} ok
[12:46] {nemo} in by the way
[12:46] {strider} in
[12:48] {Threei} no go
[12:48] {fernp} no go
[12:49] {Threei} US Senate passes procedural vote on extension of homebuyer credit and jobless benefits; final vote due later today
[12:53] {strider} more downside to FITB?
[12:53] {Threei} we are too close to FOMC now
[12:53] {strider} k
[12:53] {Threei} stay away from stocks that are likely to be affected by announcement
[12:54] {Les} Im in total ignorance Vad
[12:54] {Les} what is FOMC?
[12:54] {Threei} Fed rate decision today
[12:54] {nemo} Federal Open Market Committee
[12:54] {Threei} 2;15
[12:54] {Les} ah, to increase or not to increase, that is the question is it?
[12:55] {Threei} while rates themseves will stay put, language about future policy is a major concern
[12:55] {magoo} fellow obama meathead comrades
[12:55] {nemo} who?
[12:55] {Threei} rofl
[12:55] {nemo} nice mags
[12:55] {Les} lol well done
[12:56] {Threei} couple days ago when one of meatheads said they may "change language", which was perceived as hint of rate hikes coming sooner than expected, market dropped like stone
[12:57] {dino} missed hsic
[12:57] {nemo} wonder if that was purposely run up the flagpole to adjust the language for today?
[12:58] {Threei} you just can't let any conspiracy pass by, can you
[12:58] {nemo} that would be prudent
[12:58] {nemo} probing market reactions
[12:58] {nemo} I wouldn't call that a conspiracy
[12:58] {Threei} what to probe
[12:59] {nemo} market reaction to language change
[12:59] {Threei} I can tell you market reaction on such announcement without any probing
[12:59] {Threei} do you think Ben can't?
[12:59] {nemo} Nobody is Darth Vad
[13:00] {Threei} here, let me go out on a limb:
[13:01] {strider} Crash!
[13:01] {Threei} if they say they start tightening in Q1 2010, market will be lucky to finish today -300
[13:01] {Threei} -500 most likely
[13:02] {Threei} buy all FAZ and QID you can
[13:02] {nemo} if not +300 +500 most likely
[13:02] {Threei} faint for two hours
[13:02] {Threei} come out of it stinkin rich
[13:02] {Threei} nope, that part is wrong
[13:03] {Threei} no +500 today in any case
[13:03] {Threei} and +300 is very unlikely
[13:04] {magoo} so odds favor down then, because in both scenarios..1 gets u 500 pts and other not even close
[13:05] {Threei} that's my bias
[13:05] {Threei} and remember, first minutes after annoucement are extremely volatile
[13:06] {Threei} especially you guys at east coast, be double careful
[13:07] {Threei} BCRX Ticks higher on renewed takeover speculation (9.68, +0.37, 3.97%)

[13:12] {strider} Do you have the audio feed, Vad?
[13:12] {Threei} yes but I rarely use it
[13:12] {strider} That would drive me nuts.
[13:12] {Threei} yeah, a bit annoying
[13:13] {nemo} who says you aren't already there Strider?
[13:13] {Threei} but if you want the sppediest spped of all speeds possible...
[13:13] {strider} like nemo?

[13:18] {Threei} no new news
[13:20] {Threei} Preview: FOMC rate decision and statement due around 2:15pmET
[13:20] {Threei} Though several central banks worldwide have started to raise their rates, forecasters unanimously expect the FOMC to continue to hold its rate at 0.25% today. The debate amongst analysts focuses on how and to what extent the FOMC statement today will be modified. Some analysts believe the Fed is eager to show its intention present exit strategies in the near term, while others argue against such a move today.
[13:21] {Threei} Most of the talk has been centered on the "extended period" language in the policy statement. Many analysts are looking for some tweak of that statement as a signal that the FOMC is getting serious about its exit strategy, even if it has no intention of raising rates any time soon. Other posit that the FOMC will take a more cautious approach today, given the bad reaction markets had to the recent confirmation that Fed has been testing reverse repo operations for the last several months.
[13:21] {nemo} yeah...conspiracy...
[13:22] {magoo} quote freeze now..u nemo?
[13:22] {nemo} no
[13:22] {strider} not me.
[13:22] {Threei} fine here...
[13:22] {magoo} grrrrrrrrrrrr
[13:23] {dino} you know, it's a ridiculous to worry about the wording. they are not raising rates for a very long time
[13:23] {nemo} I'm only concerned with the market reaction, not the wording
[13:24] {dino} the banks can't handle it, nore can employers, the debtors, and the unemployed
[13:24] {Les} I dunno Vad. Do they have any vestige of pride in US monetary policy? US is joke of the world now. Do they keep playing the dunce or start to seriously address issue?
[13:24] {nemo} Dunce
[13:24] {Les} talking rate rise at some point in future
[13:25] {Threei} you know,
[13:25] {Les} I'd like to think they'll talk about it...
[13:25] {magoo} doesnt matter dino..nemo correct{cant bbelieve i said that} all matters is mkt reaction and its 100% gonna be based off wording
[13:25] {Threei} I don't believe the world fares that much better that it could hold US as a joke
[13:25] {Les} i know i know its mkt reaction but....
[13:25] {nemo} hurts, huh Mags
[13:25] {dino} the only way out is through inflation les, we know it, but to raise too soon will have reverse effect, deflation which will bankrupt the entire system. so steady we go for 6-10 months
[13:26] {nemo} yeah, especially with Commercial Real Estate fiasco coming
[13:26] {Threei} I mean, show me who is so wise and strong that they could be prud of their achievets and belittle USA?
