5 calls, 5 wins - AIG, VXX, SEED... all of them early in the day, then traditional period of boredom. The range was so narrow that even those morning moves were a miracle. Calm before the storm.

Session Time: Mon Mar 08 00:00:00 2010

[08:13] {Threei} RF Micro Devices, Inc. Guides Q2 $0.11-0.12 v $0.10e; R $240-245M v $232Me

[09:35] {Threei} jump right out of the gate everywhere, no chance for entry
[09:36] {Threei} watching SEDD on pullback
[09:36] {Threei} SEED
[09:36] {Threei} under .60
[09:36] {Threei} half lot
[09:36] {dino} tnh

[09:39] {fernp} yeah
[09:39] {Threei} for pesky scalpers .70
[09:39] {Threei} easy to get shaken out though
[09:39] {Threei} ok AIG, should dive now
[09:40] {Threei} keep half lot ready
[09:41] {Threei} one more leg
[09:41] {Threei} .50 break

[09:51] {dino} stop .19
[09:51] {dino} cresy?
[09:52] {Threei} no news
[09:52] {dino} ncs would think short off reverse 1/5 split
[09:52] {dino} nor here cresy
[09:53] {Threei} if you took .30 recross on TCK you have 1:1 here at least
[09:54] {jfjf64} ty
[09:54] {Threei} I say at least because with such entry stop would be under .25
[09:54] {Threei} VXX, ready for the next leg or for shakeout

[09:54] {Threei} IMO, next leg up

[09:56] {Threei} half lot
[09:56] {Threei} stop under .35
[09:57] {RonS} IMAX for a bounce w/ 14.20 sl?

[09:58] {Threei} this entry is likely to be more struggle than I'd like
[09:58] {dino} lod
[09:59] {Threei} VXX second target hit, 1/4 more out
[10:00] {nemo} ty
[10:00] {Threei} stop is still .75 for the last piece

[10:05] {strider} AMAT dbl bottom
[10:05] {Threei} hmm
[10:05] {Threei} looks more like breakdown to me
[10:06] {strider} could be.
[10:06] {nemo} RIMM DT?
[10:06] {dino} cfi hl l .71
[10:07] {Threei} not clear yet on RIMM
[10:07] {nemo} classic dino

[10:09] {Les} AUY .28 B/D? type 1
[10:09] {nemo} I mean't cfi Dino
[10:10] {Threei} .40 breakdown was much cleaner setup on AUY

[10:10] {Les} :)
[10:10] {dino} ok nemo
[10:11] {nemo} aig .50 bd on big bid breakdown

[10:14] {Threei} watching SEED
[10:15] {Threei} not sure for what but something should shape up
[10:15] {Les} TIVO 17?
[10:16] {Threei} nah
[10:16] {Threei} TIVO is out of gas and goes through the resting period
[10:16] {Threei} it will become a player again
[10:16] {Les} might try a .90 b/d on it then
[10:16] {Threei} but until it does, it will be pretty random
[10:18] {RonS} Vad , is CMRG too thin and tight to play?
[10:19] {Threei} trades by appointment...
[10:19] {Threei} I am not a big fun of thesde
[10:19] {dino} fdx sm l .50
[10:19] {RonS} tx
[10:19] {nemo} aig on steady trajectory

[10:25] {Threei} wow
[10:25] {nemo} rimm?
[10:25] {dino} bcsi
[10:25] {Threei} yeah
[10:28] {Threei} just when I hought of .40 break on SEED for short, it went down so fast, I was hesitant to try it on a bounce
[10:31] {Threei} oh boy
[10:31] {Threei} this is total classic
[10:31] {Threei} dino, you are going to love it
[10:31] {Threei} (GR) Greece PM: Must have clear rules on shorts, naked shorts, and credit default swpas; G20 should take a look at speculators
[10:31] {Threei} this is who is to balme! get'em!

[10:32] {Les} yeh, Sarkozy is jawing off at speculators
[10:32] {Threei} OK, SEED
[10:32] {Threei} IMO, short into this bounce
[10:32] {Threei} ideally, going over .40,
[10:32] {Threei} staying under .50,
[10:32] {Threei} then breaking down .40 again
[10:33] {nemo} or break of .37
[10:33] {nemo} .40 is where it opened
[10:33] {Threei} with 4-5 cets stop?
[10:33] {nemo} well .44
[10:33] {nemo} in

[10:36] {Threei} 1:1
[10:36] {nemo} ty
[10:36] {Threei} your entry
[10:36] {Threei} mine was only the general idea
[10:36] {nemo} oh
[10:36] {nemo} hehehe
[10:36] {Threei} this is kind of risk based setup
[10:37] {Threei} worth trying on risk being so small, even 50/50 is good enough
[10:41] {dino} vad dcc please
[10:46] {magoo} in
[10:46] {nemo} ?
[10:46] {Threei} what's so weird about it?

[10:46] {Threei} SEED lost readability
[10:46] {nemo} what's he in?
[10:47] {nemo} What do they say about shorting a dull market?
[10:47] {magoo} when i logged in it says evaluation period has expired...u know there usually are days in there like 76 until
[10:48] {magoo} and vad, u last time klike added it to 350 days
[10:48] {Threei} I don't even know where you tried to login
[10:48] {Threei} are you talking about room or scanner?
[10:48] {magoo} THIS ROOM
[10:48] {Threei} I added days to your scanner,
[10:48] {RonS} IMAX read?
[10:48] {Threei} room doesn't expire
[10:49] {magoo} hmmm..realy..ok
[10:49] {Threei} IMAX is toughie... I believe it's not over, should make new highs,
[10:49] {Threei} but read on it is not an easy thing
[10:49] {Threei} it rarely forms clean consolidations
[10:50] {Threei} mags, you haven't even tried to login to this room before this one and sucessful try... I don't know what door you knocked on, lol
[10:51] {magoo} im lost i guess (sigh..again)
[10:52] {Threei} oh boy
[10:52] {Threei} ECB's Stark: A European IMF style institution would be against the rules of the EMU; could create false incentives and place burden on some countries
[10:52] {Threei} - highlights that the fund would allow countries with weak finances to continue poor policies
[10:52] {Threei} - creation of such a fund could harm the acceptance of the Euro
[10:52] {Threei} - feels reforms of stability adn growth agreements is the better way forward, with penalties for countries who break deficit rules
[10:52] {Threei} - Note: German Fin Min over the weekend called for the establishment of a European IMF style organizatio
[10:52] {Threei} germany called to establish that??
[10:53] {Threei} last country I'd expect to want that
[10:53] {Threei} mags, your scanner is OK?
[10:55] {jfjf64} rimm monster

[11:02] {magoo} its been a dog lately
[11:03] {Threei} I am hesitant to use VXX as market upward vehicle, fern
[11:03] {Threei} playing it long when market reverses, yes
[11:03] {nemo} over 72 I think you'll see it in play mags
[11:03] {Threei} short when market advances, less and less liking risk reward on that
[11:03] {fernp} ah!! ok ty
[11:03] {nemo} I hesitated on the .85 break
[11:06] {Threei} look at SPY range
[11:07] {Threei} how did we manage to find what we did, lol
[11:08] {nemo} wonder if rimm bolts if it breaks 73
[11:08] {Threei} most likely
[11:08] {magoo} dunno..its already up huge
[11:09] {magoo} really only like if pulls back
[11:10] {magoo} and it may not
[11:10] {Threei} this is one of those mags... "I'll just go up and up while ya'll say Can't believe it"
[11:11] {Threei} "and when you finally can't stand the pain of being left out and jump in, that's when I reverse"
[11:12] {nemo} it's a relatively sustainable rise no real euphoria
[11:12] {strider} TM
[11:16] {dino} stuck in a tight range again
[11:18] {nemo} fcx bounce area
[11:21] {dino} out fdx flat

[11:30] {dino} and frank standing behind him
[11:30] {nemo} hahahaha
[11:31] {Threei} rofl
[11:31] {Threei} you guys
[11:32] {Threei} market is trying to break down
[11:33] {magoo} if so rimm could be a short scalp opportunity
[11:34] {Threei} I'd be hesitant to buy VXX break of .80, but quick pullback to or under .70, I will be interested
[11:34] {Threei} .60 break though, I regret ignoring
[11:34] {RonS} rimm has been acting on its own...
[11:36] {nemo} FAS could be long here
[11:36] {nemo} maybe a little pullback. to .95 would set up IH&S
[11:38] {Threei} IUSA Confirms to be acquired by CCMP capital; at $8.00/shr in cash (8.16, 0.00, 0.00%)

[11:43] {Threei} I can't watch this indoctrination
[11:44] {Threei} "we are told market forces should take care of costs, well, we tried that, it doesn't work"
[11:45] {Threei} students applaud
[11:47] {dino} cohn
[11:49] {Threei} market can't decide whether to break down or return into range

[12:06] {dino} cohn stop is .31
[12:06] {dino} brb
[12:08] {Threei} my mind is occupied by an issue of a great importance: can I count SEED short that nemo took as a call or not

[12:09] {Threei} entry you found yourself

[13:37] {nemo} Rimm's 4th attempt at this level

[13:44] {dino} fsys
[14:01] {Threei} (US) US Rep Frank sends letter to top 4 US banks, requests them write down second lien mortgages
[14:01] {Threei} - sees mortgages having no real value; and are an obstacle in many loan modifications
[14:01] {Threei} lol
[14:02] {dino} he really doesn't understand too much
[14:03] {Threei} but he finds great consolation in the fact that he is not alone
[14:03] {nemo} Well...he's probably thinking if the house isn't worth the 1st mortgage, they've got no chance, so just write it own
[14:04] {Threei} and leave current occupant who can't pay mortgage to own it?
[14:04] {Threei} next thing you know 99% of USA who CAN pay mortgage, do not
[14:05] {dino} i'm sure the stock and bondholders think they are valuable
[14:05] {Threei} your beloved bank goes out of business
[14:05] {Threei} and evryone's happy
[14:05] {Threei} homeowners have their houses and no mortgage,
[14:05] {Threei} bank so widely hated by everyone is no more
[14:06] {Threei} there... all problems solved
[14:06] {Les} you go cap in hand to washington for loan following this, do you?
[14:06] {Threei} well, there are some little details
[14:06] {Threei} like, no bank to go for a loan anymore,
[14:06] {Threei} but who cares - we don't pay down our cars anymore either
[14:07] {Threei} or any other kind of loans
[14:17] {Les} vxx to bounce back here? .40 break?
[14:18] {Threei} well
[14:18] {Threei} it's a vaalid try
[14:18] {Threei} just view it as a "try"
