Jan 29 2010

Profitable end to the week, with early long on WFC and a few trades on both sides later on. Still somewhat unusual number of invalidated trades, but those don't bother me all that much since they don't cost us a cent.

Session Time: Fri Jan 29 00:00:00 2010

[09:58] {Threei} not a nice stock on this kind of breaks though
[09:59] {Les} AUY getting squeezed too.
[09:59] {dino} giddy-up esi

[09:59] {Threei} and quite possibly lower
[09:59] {dino} watch your mouth

[10:13] {Threei} - Note: Whitney cut her GS estimates to inline with consensus on 1/5 before the 1/21 earnings
[10:14] {Threei} GLD, aggressive entries are still the best for it, but it's almost impossible to find the stop level for those
[10:14] {nemo} entry at .70 on the trend would have implied, to my deranged mind, a stop above .80
[10:15] {Threei} entry near .70 would be ideal, yes
[10:15] {Les} AUY and SLW remain alternative vehicles for shorting. but none want to go down. somethings got to give

[11:23] {_moeberry} please tell me
[11:23] {Threei} ok
[11:23] {_moeberry} what does that mean?
[11:23] {nemo} They're ALL sisters
[11:24] {Threei} our setups are structured in a way that tells you the trigger for entring,
[11:24] {_moeberry} Okay.
[11:24] {Threei} and sthe level where stop should be placed if a trade is triggered
[11:24] {Threei} or where the trade is invalidated if no trigger
[11:24] {Threei} Example:
[11:24] {Threei} Long Setup: SOMETHING .50 break if holding above .40
[11:25] {_moeberry} okay
[11:25] {Threei} Something breaks - .50 - you buy
[11:25] {_moeberry} ahhh I see
[11:25] {Threei} Something drops under .40 - take the stop,
[11:25] {_moeberry} so let's say
[11:25] {Les} s wfc small shares .83 stop hod
[11:25] {Threei} Something drops under .40 before breaking .50 - trade is cvanceled
[11:25] {_moeberry} XYZ is @ 15.20
[11:26] {_moeberry} and you made a alert on xyz .50
[11:26] {_moeberry} so I only buy if it reaches anything over .50?
[11:26] {Threei} formally, yes,
[11:26] {Threei} but
[11:26] {_moeberry} ahh
[11:26] {Threei} there are also different types of entry

[14:40] {strider} :)
[14:41] {nemo} well, I've been scalping down on fcx, but it's basically been reading the tape and when it touches the 13 ma, I look to go short
[14:41] {Threei} my culprit is this:
[14:41] {Threei} most of days this week we had late day bounce
[14:41] {Threei} so I have troubles discerning whether it's the case today as well
[14:41] {Threei} doesn't loook like that
[14:41] {Threei} everything feels to me like more selling
[14:42] {Threei} look st GS testing lows on both intraday and daily
[14:43] {dino} sm l .00 neu risky
[14:44] {nemo} yeah, the volumes on these bounces or pauses doesnt really give any indication of changes of direction
[14:44] {strider} futs have bounced off lows 3 times.
[14:45] {nemo} that's called dead cat.

Jan 28 2010

Some days are made by just one strong trade. This was exactly the case: scalp here, stop there, nothing outstanding, and a whole lot of invalidated trades - those where stop level is broken before trigger is taken, so trade just never comes to be. Then star trade came along: CAT long at 51.60, with 15 cents risk and for almost a dollar potential.

Session Time: Thu Jan 28 00:00:00 2010

[07:47] {Threei} CY
[07:47] {Threei} Cypress Semiconductor Demonstrates tablet-sized capacitive touchscreen with true multi-touch all-point capability
[07:47] {Threei} - Demonstrated a tablet-sized capacitive touchscreen technology with unlimited finger tracking capability.Cypress has released a video, available at www.cypress.com/go/tabletvideo, which features a demonstration of a user manipulating multiple pictures on the screen simultaneously. The technology, based on Cypresss industry-leading TrueTouch touchscreen solution for smaller-size portable electronics, will power touchscreens between 7 and 17 inches with full multi-touch support.
[07:49] {Les} morning. F in play premarket
[07:50] {Threei} Les :)
[07:50] {Threei} Ford Motor Co Reports Q4 $0.25 v $0.26e, R $35.4B v $32.6Be
[07:50] {Threei} For full year 2010, Ford plans to be profitable on a pre-tax basis excluding special items, for North America, total Automotive and total company, with positive Automotive operating-related cash flow, based on its assumptions
[07:50] {Threei} - Expects industry sales in range of 11.5-12.5M units
[07:51] {Les} ha. so it's not actually profitable then
[07:51] {Threei} well, at this point it's more about guidance I'd think
[07:51] {Threei} there is a whole lot of numbers in that
[07:51] {Threei} breakdown by continents
[07:51] {Threei} ends with:
[07:52] {Threei} - Ford Motor Credit Reports Q4 pre tax operating profit $696M v -$372M y/y
[07:52] {Threei} - Expects Motor Credit to be profitable in 2010 but lower than 2009 based on lower average receivables and the non-recurrence of certain favorable 2009 factors.
[07:52] {Threei} also, look at this aggressive mobe:
[07:52] {Threei} 01/27/2010 08:40 PM [F] To offer $1,000 rebate to Toyota and Honda owners
[07:53] {Les} that's aggressive marketing
[07:53] {Threei} good thing they don't offer it to Nissan owners
[07:54] {Threei} I don't want Ford, and such offer would make me even think about it
[07:54] {Threei} ummm... maybe not
[07:58] {Les} dunno. ford making pretty trendy cars in Europe. Europeans like these small hatchbacks etc
[08:00] {Threei} line up is different in US and Europe
[08:00] {Les} yeh. its the americans that need an attitude adjustment
[08:01] {Threei} and... I tried one of Ford's recent crossovers once,
[08:01] {Les} or to really hurt at the gasoline pump like we do here
[08:01] {Threei} after Murano, it handles like a wet diaper
[08:01] {strider} We need an attitude adjustment?
[08:01] {Threei} well, maybe you'd do well stopping taxing the hell out of that gasoline
[08:01] {Les} especially you Strider
[08:02] {Les} mind you. motorcycle is better attitude to road than a Hummer
[08:02] {Threei} but you seem to believe in that hoghwash about global warming too strongly to do that {G}
[08:02] {strider} My attitude is recalibrated every morning at 8AM.
[08:02] {nemo} qcom and nflx could be interesting this morning
[08:03] {Threei} sheesh
[08:04] {Threei} was looking at CY 11.07 offer not realzing that was the entry I wanted
[08:04] {Threei} I obviouslyam still asleep
[08:05] {Les} lol strider, you remind me of that colonel in "American Beauty"
[08:05] {nemo} must be, if Les is there, must be a nightmare...
[08:05] {Les} you sure you're not ex-Marine?
[08:05] {Threei} crap
[08:05] {nemo} I used to teach military people, and work with them...that's about it
[08:05] {Threei} that was my opening $400 right there
[08:05] {nemo} well, since you didn't share...
[08:06] {Les} not you Nemo
[08:06] {Threei} I posted news
[08:06] {Les} vad is right
[08:06] {Les} I have CY on chart
[08:06] {Les} but wasn't paying attention to it
[08:07] {Les} but it did jump out of the blue
[08:07] {nemo} I was reading about somebody's battle on another blog...missed it
[08:07] {Les} I must have scared strider off...
[08:08] {nemo} scared...nah...disgusted him...I can see that
[08:08] {Threei} lol
[08:08] {Threei} strider doesn't strike me like easy frightened type
[08:08] {strider} I missed something while rebooting.
[08:09] {strider} Is Les coming to get me?
[08:09] {Threei} rofl
[08:10] {Threei} you guys
[08:10] {Les} 14:05 Les lol strider, you remind me of that colonel in "American Beauty"
[08:10] {Threei} OK... so weho is impressed by state of the union speech?
[08:10] {Les} 14:05 Les you sure you're not ex-Marine?
[08:10] {nemo} ] * strider (jmichaeljon@jtc-6489cc8c.nc.charter.com) Quit (Quit: )
[08:10] {nemo} [08:07] * strider (jmichaeljon@jtc-6489cc8c.nc.charter.com) has joined #discussions
[08:10] {nemo} [08:07] {Les} I must have scared strider off...
[08:10] {nemo} [08:08] {nemo} scared...nah...disgusted him...I can see that
[08:10] {nemo} [08:08] {&Threei} lol
[08:10] {nemo} I skipped the speech
[08:10] {Les} didn't listen to him
[08:11] {Les} what did he have to say?
[08:11] {nemo} I was watching "District 9" with my nephew
[08:11] {Les} any good?
[08:11] {Threei} a lot... and I have to say, I never heard so non-presidential one
[08:11] {nemo} yeah, it was pretty good...saw a commercial for it on DVD, so went right to the torrents
[08:11] {Threei} lol
06[08:11] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large bag of sarcasm
[08:12] {Les} really, he was waffling on again?
[08:12] {strider} Yeah, though I walk through the valley of death, I fear no evil.. for I am the meanest MF in the valley. (favorite phrase of my SF buddies.)
[08:12] {nemo} I already have a railroad car full...ty
[08:12] {Threei} the spot that totsally turned me off was:
[08:12] {nemo} Personally I like...nuke them til they glow, shoot them in the dark, let God sort them out...
[08:12] {Threei} I take my share of blame for not explaining our position on health care reform well
[08:13] {Threei} this is beyond arrogant
[08:13] {strider} well, you should, vad.
[08:13] {Threei} it translates into:
[08:13] {Threei} I am right, you all are wrong, you don't get it, and my fault is in not exlaining it clearly enough
[08:13] {nemo} We couldn' slip it by you f%$#&@s before you figured it out
[08:14] {strider} Seriously condescending.
[08:14] {Threei} so, I should have tried to make it sinmpler for you
[08:14] {Threei} but I overestimated your intelligence
[08:14] {Threei} well, piece on climate change was just as condescvending
[08:15] {strider} "After all, I am super-O, and you're not."
[08:15] {Threei} even his poart of the audience met it with grave silnece
[08:15] {Les} F .80 B/d?
[08:16] {Threei} questionable...
[08:16] {strider} premarket has its own rules...
[08:16] {strider} imo
[08:16] {Threei} there asre no patterns established yet
[08:16] {Les} 7am thru now. big descending triangle?
[08:17] {Threei} formally speasking, yes
[08:17] {Threei} in purpose of pattern recognition
[08:18] {Threei} it's just that patterns much less reliable at this point
[08:18] {Les} but not actionable due to lack of vol?
[08:18] {Threei} yes
[08:18] {Les} or reliable I should say
[08:18] {Les} makes sense
[08:19] {Les} .

[10:20] {Les} things are moving more predicably today
[10:20] {Les} predictably
[10:20] {dino} weeks like this make me think i should trade from home. too many drop-ins
[10:22] {dino} ttek tear down that wall
[10:24] {dino} kof
[10:25] {ese} huh....spectacular i think ek reports 1.36 V .18e is that right ?
[10:26] {Les} cat consolidating to b/d thru support
[10:27] {Threei} unless marjet reverses
[10:27] {Les} y
[10:27] {Threei} AAPL...
[10:27] {Threei} impossible to nail entry
[10:27] {Threei} I know it's a short
[10:28] {dino} stepping back, all red

[10:31] {Threei} Short Setup: X .95
[10:31] {Threei} half lot
[10:32] {Threei} 47.10 invalidation
[10:33] {Les} aa 13 b/d?
[10:33] {Threei} yes
[10:33] {nemo} chart for x is bad
[10:34] {Threei} bad for what?
[10:34] {nemo} bad data chart shows .10 quotes are up arounnd .35
[10:34] {ese} ek has to hold above .60 or i remove the bstop
[10:35] {Threei} hmm?
[10:35] {Threei} everything matches here
[10:35] {Threei} switch server?
[10:35] {nemo} switched all of them
[10:36] {fernp} yes, is bad. spread is -0.23 (minus)
[10:38] {nemo} I rebooted laser, data still bad
[10:38] {nemo} for X only so far
[10:38] {fernp} CSCO 1:1
[10:39] {dino} ioc
[10:39] {dino} mjn spike
[10:42] {ese} bstop ek removed...invalidated
[10:44] {nemo} weird for MOS in LII I've got LOD of 56.22 yet it just hit 56.03, something is wrong with the system
[10:44] {ese} vad question? basically i removed the by one that because i've watched you invalidate buys if they move ouside of a .10 range. is that because of a strenght thing....at least thats my impression of your setups
[10:44] {ese} bstop
[10:45] {Threei} not necessary 10 cents,
[10:45] {ese} yes that was going to be my next question
[10:45] {Threei} rule is, if a stock violates stop level before triggering - trigger is invalidated
[10:45] {Threei} chart defines support and resistance that form a setup's structure
[10:45] {Threei} so when I say:
[10:46] {Threei} ABCD is long in .20 break if stays above .10
[10:46] {Threei} break of .10 naturally invalidates the play
[10:46] {ese} yes
[10:46] {ese} what determines the range for you
[10:46] {Threei} .10 cents is simply because I prefer tighter setups
[10:46] {Threei} but chart may indicate other ranges
[10:47] {ese} ok
[10:47] {Threei} chart configuration
[10:47] {dino} good q es, thx vad
[10:47] {ese} what the bars are indicating?
[10:47] {ese} 1min bars 5 min etc
[10:47] {Threei} sorry, not sure I understand
[10:47] {Threei} 1 min bar indicastes price change within 1 min
[10:48] {ese} well if 1 min bars are showing say .08 range....then the invalidate will be .08 below where the trigger is
[10:49] {Threei} ugh, no
[10:49] {dino} ttek to flat, mkt drop
[10:49] {Threei} I never define a range by just one bar
[10:49] {Threei} look ast gld
[10:49] {ese} number of bars?
[10:49] {Threei} 1 min
[10:49] {dino} qcom breaks .00 down
[10:49] {Threei} time from
[10:49] {Threei} 10:05
[10:49] {Threei} to
[10:50] {Threei} 10:32
[10:50] {Threei} see the 20 cents range formedZ?
[10:50] {ese} gld?
[10:50] {Threei} yes
[10:50] {ese} ok .40 to .60
[10:50] {Threei} .40 break would have triggered short, with stop above .60
[10:51] {Threei} .60 break would have (and did) triggered long with stop under .40
[10:51] {Les} $ up
[10:51] {nemo} fcx chart off too
[10:51] {ese} so a time factor then.....in this case 27 min
[10:51] {ese} ok i'm getcha
[10:51] {fernp} VZ .60 break, Vad?
[10:51] {Threei} there is no fast rule to the length of consolidation period
[10:52] {ese} ok
[10:52] {Threei} I don't like it fern
[10:52] {fernp} ok. ty
[10:52] {Threei} has distinctive smell of trap to it
[10:52] {dino} bid/ask reverse troubles here nemo, on listed
[10:53] {nemo} yeah
[10:53] {Les} AA and CAT both b/d candidates
[10:53] {Les} market willing
[10:54] {dino} ndx fills 12/17 gap, 1778
[10:54] {Threei} 10:51] {Threei} there is no fast rule to the length of consolidation period
[10:54] {Threei} but it should be something reasonable,
[10:54] {Threei} 2-3 bars make range not
[10:54] {Les} you talking to me?
[10:54] {Threei} the only exception is open breaks,
[10:54] {Threei} they are usually shirter,
[10:55] {Threei} simply because market was open for a brief time, things happen faster
[10:55] {Threei} no Les
[10:55] {Threei} I am just blabbing in general
[10:55] {Les} very good then
[10:55] {Threei} ignore at your peril though
[10:55] {dino} alrighty then.

[11:07] {Threei} CAT isn't seeling off with market

[11:08] {ese} L ek .62
[11:08] {dino} q? when using your 50/200 etc, what time frame?}
[11:08] {ese} used .50 to .60 range as support resistance and trigger
[11:09] {nemo} me? 1minute
[11:10] {nemo} If med doesn't hold it here, goes to 16.60 or so
[11:11] {dino} on longer term chart; say 52 wks

[13:04] {Threei} and we all know which road is paved with good intentions
[13:04] {dino} think about this heathcare issue. nobody can buy it w/o jobs, but they still push it
[13:05] {Threei} who cares... they have Bush to blame
[13:05] {dino} and he says lower taxes are not the answer, well his higher taxes and more regulations do not inspire hiring
[13:05] {Threei} last thing I expected that one year later he will still use him as an excuse
[13:05] {dino} i give up. waiting for john galt
[13:05] {nemo} see where oregon is instituting a gross revenue tax

[13:06] {dino} "get out of the way"
[13:06] {dino} qcom last try sm l .50, stop lod
[13:07] {Threei} btw, same as with porevious call... CAT if triggers and works, is not a scalp
[13:07] {Threei} 52 at least, and 52.50 is not out of question
[13:08] {dino} and think of this, we have the wprlds ;argest nat, gas reserves, but no he says., rather than create millions of jobs and wipe out our trade deficit (no more oil imports), he doesn't want to use nat. gas. likes giving billions to middle east i guess
06[13:08] * Threei kicvks CAT in the rear
[13:08] {dino} we are ruled by the biggest dumbasses in our history

[13:20] {Threei} it tested .47 since the call
[13:20] {Threei} two targets
[13:20] {Threei} one is closer to 52, somewhere in .85 - .95 area
[13:21] {Threei} another is closer to 52.50,
[13:21] {Threei} something like .25-40 area
[13:21] {Threei} if all you wanted is scalp with .652 stop, you have 1:1

[13:26] {Threei} - reached a settlement in the patent infringement lawsuits with San Jose, CA-based MetaRAM, Inc. The... (4.01, +0.22, 5.80%) more...
[13:26] {Threei} -The settlement resolves a dispute between the two companies concerning the use of proprietary memory modules, power management operations and other related technology.
[13:26] {Threei} - MetaRAM will not sell, offer to sell, release, or commercialize the MetaRAM DDR3 controllers in the U.S. or outside the U.S. Netlist contended that MetaRAM's DDR3 controllers and memory modules incorporating such controllers infringed its U.S. Patent No. 7,289,386, entitled "Memory Module Decoder." A provision in the settlement protects Netlist if another company purchases MetaRAM's patent and attempts to seek action against Netlist in the future.

[15:12] {Threei} - Vote on Cloture due around 3:20pmET which would end the debate in the Senate and open the process to the official vote.

[15:12] {Threei} - Cloture requires 60 votes to pass. By some counts circulating this afternoon, 51 senators have affirmed they will vote in favor of Bernanke, while 23 have affirmed they will vote against Bernanke, leaving up to 26 votes uncertain.

Jan 27 2010

With all the FOMC/testimonials, it was an interesting but not very readable day. First two trades of the day worked beautifully, WFC long and ALTR short, then couple smallish stops stole part of our profits, and things became increasingly random from there.

Session Time: Wed Jan 27 00:00:00 2010

[08:15] {Threei} 07:30 CAT Reports Q4 $0.41 v $0.28e(ex items), R$7.9B v $8.1Be
[08:15] {Threei} - Guides FY10 $2.50 v $2.71e, Rev +10-25% (implies range of $35.6-40.5B v $36Be
[08:43] {fernp} Good morning everybody
[08:43] {Threei} fern :)
[08:44] {strider} morning fern
[08:44] {strider} vad
[08:44] {fernp} st
[08:44] {Threei} strider :)
[08:56] {nemo} I guess my thought's about brk.b were right
[08:57] {nemo} had no idea they would be included on the S&P 500
[08:58] {Les} quiet morning
[08:58] {Les} Hello?
[09:00] {Threei} morning les
[09:01] {Les} morning
[09:01] {Les} TM moving nicely pre market
[09:02] {Les} damn. looks like its too late to pick up a Saab on the cheap
[09:03] {Threei} TM is probably hit by that suspension of sales?
[09:03] {Threei} yeah
[09:03] {Threei} Toyota Motor Corp BofA/Merrill Lynch looks at impact on earnings of temporary sales suspension on some vehicles
[09:03] {Threei} - "we assume the sales suspension will last three weeks and that all customers will turn to competitors such as Honda or Nissan, resulting in an opportunity loss of 90,000 vehicles (or 68bn). ...The eight models in question accounted for 56% of the 1.77mn vehicles recorded by Toyota in US retail sales in 2009."
[09:04] {Les} BRK.B being solidly traded pre market. would you permit a setup traded on it before opening?
[09:05] {Les} not permit, but counsel against a setup prior to opening
[09:06] {Threei} with smaller shares. maybe
[09:06] {dino} gm all
[09:06] {Threei} dino :)
[09:06] {Les} hi dino
[09:10] {Les} Vad, been meaning to ask you about your backup
[09:10] {Les} for your pc, which saved you recently with that drive crash of yours
[09:10] {Threei} yes
[09:10] {Les} what's your setup?
[09:10] {Threei} Acronis is my backup program
[09:11] {Les} saving to?
[09:11] {Threei} two spots,
[09:11] {Threei} one is second internal harddrive,
[09:11] {Threei} another is external one
[09:11] {Les} acronis does that automatically?
[09:11] {Threei} no
[09:12] {Threei} you launch it and tell it what you want to do
[09:12] {Threei} it can do full backup,
[09:12] {Threei} which is not just data
[09:12] {Threei} but also all programs aND THEIR CONFIGURATIONS
[09:12] {Les} following your breakdown you retain full confidence in acronis?
[09:12] {Threei} so when you reinstall everything
[09:13] {Threei} you don't lose configurations, logins etc
[09:13] {ese} GM

[09:59] {nemo} scary...i'm thinking like you
[09:59] {Threei} if stays above ,45

[10:02] {Threei} no go

[10:06] {Threei} meaning, US will pay equivalent to whole stimulus package only to cover interest
[10:06] {Threei} 8Reminder: on jan 26th the CBO confirmed FY10 budget deficit at 1.3T
[10:08] {fernp} BAC .95 break, Vad?
[10:09] {Threei} not my favorite play at the moment
[10:09] {fernp} ok
[10:09] {Threei} narrow and slow, will requite too much time to develop - and I don't believe we have much time for activity today, with everything that is coming
[10:10] {fernp} ty
[10:10] {Les} GG offering a .90 b/d?
[10:11] {Les} AUY breakdownish too
[10:12] {Les} log b/d?
[10:12] {Threei} doesn't form clean resistance so far, GG
[10:12] {Les} and auy
[10:12] {Les} ?
[10:12] {Threei} this one looks better chart wise but too narrow
[10:12] {Les} ok
[10:13] {dino} ioc
[10:16] {Les} aa .25 b/d
[10:16] {Threei} nah
[10:17] {Les} its actually at support here
[10:17] {Threei} this is bounce time for AA rather
[10:18] {Les} my thinking is poor. I took a paltry 200 shares of AUY for +.05 knowing that it was likely to drop
[10:18] {ese} will catch you all later this morning....massive headache..gonna go back to bed for a bit
[10:18] {Les} ciao ese

[10:21] {dino} htch sm l .55
[10:22] {Les} If AA rolls over, can short it at lod? bounce/stop is acceptable
[10:23] {Threei} it looks bounce bound to me
[10:23] {dino} fdx sm l .75
[10:23] {Threei} double bottom is more likely than breakdown
[10:24] {Threei} I'd see long entry with stop under .15
[10:24] {Threei} seek
[10:24] {dino} itri sm l .46
[10:24] {Threei} target to sell half around .30
[10:25] {Threei} and the rest somewhere between .30 and .40
[10:25] {Les} ok

[10:33] {Threei} was thinking about USO short
[10:33] {Threei} after the report
[10:34] {Threei} never saw any trigger, and thing just plummeted
[10:39] {Les} market respecting resistance
[10:39] {Les} can I fade AA if downtrend continues
[10:39] {Threei} your trigger would be .15, right?
[10:39] {Les} y
[10:40] {Threei} so you need some consolidation with better pronounced resistance
[10:40] {Threei} at this point, green spikes ruin it
[10:40] {Threei} some more flat top, to create a channel
[10:40] {Threei} and play will become valid

[10:54] {Les} wanna stick with aa vad
[10:54] {Les} only exited long position
[10:54] {Les} didn't short
[10:54] {Les} setup still valid despite this green spike?
[10:55] {Threei} things become quite random here
[10:55] {Les} crap. hate that
[10:56] {Threei} we have Timmy testimonial going, and we have FOMC today
[10:57] {Threei} do you r eally expect readable period to continue too long under these conditions?
[10:57] {Threei} we had 30 minute os readability
[10:58] {Threei} next step was to go sleep
[10:58] {Threei} or sit and observe, maybe wait for some news play
[10:58] {Threei} but not to tgry and insert ourselves in the middle of repositioning
[10:58] {Threei} where nop side has intentions to make any commitment
[10:59] {Threei} and all everyone thinks abiout is to diminish their exposure

The main thrust of the FOMC statement is expected to remain intact, including the "extended period" language.

Jan 26 2010

About flat day for us, with prolonged period of inactivity. Market stayed in a sleep mode for so long that when sell-off finally started, we missed most of it.

Session Time: Tue Jan 26 00:00:00 2010

[10:46] {Les} I'm fighting the tape all the way up today
[10:46] {Threei} out a bit too early RIMM
[10:46] {Threei} knew it was a powerful setup
[10:47] {Les} what tells you it was a powerful setup?
[10:47] {Threei} the way it continued bumping at .10, retreating, returning to it again,
[10:47] {Les} because it previously touched .10 zone before dropping earlier?
[10:48] {Threei} this tends to build kind of dam
[10:48] {Les} crap. sorry question answered
[10:48] {Threei} which when broken leads to a flash flood
[10:48] {Les} cool. will remember that
[10:48] {strider} AIG may be good for a short soon
[10:48] {Threei} it's the same principle as with huge offers break Les
[10:48] {Threei} think of both as dam break
[10:48] {larisa} hated it over 61 for long. all possible divergencies did show it is topping. Vad was right. i liked it short :)
[10:49] {ese} ya get that feelin that zion is going to hit 21
[10:49] {Threei} full stop
[10:49] {Threei} no one breathes
[10:49] {strider} maybe look for aggressive entry near .30
[10:49] {Threei} no one says a word
[10:49] {Threei} this is a moment I really need to savour
[10:49] {Threei} Larisa said I was right
[10:49] {Threei} where is my t-shirt
[10:49] {larisa} or lucky :)
[10:50] {Threei} "I WAS RIGHT" on both chest and back
[10:50] {Threei} oh don't spoil my chest-drumming moment
[10:50] {Threei} I get it what, once a year?
[10:51] {strider} VAD: Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know.
[10:51] {Threei} really? I thought of myself as meek, obedient and overall fuzzy
[10:51] {strider} yeah, well, that too.
[10:52] {ese} cien stop is .79 for me by the way
[10:54] {ese} why I otta.....it's plain wit me.........well i'll show it.....if it hits .79 den izziz atta dare

[10:56] {Threei} it's english?
[10:56] {Threei} damn... I always thought I weas speaking sumerian...
[10:57] {ese} lol
[10:57] {Les} FITB lod b/d
[10:58] {Threei} look at GS
[10:58] {Les} getting its just desserts
[10:58] {ese} fitb gave up the ghost
[10:59] {Threei} it's a serious selloff, on both daily and intraday
[10:59] {Threei} takes many finnies with it
[11:00] {ilana} RIMM looks short now?
[11:00] {Threei} can't help but ask... those conspirasists who believe GS can dio anything they pleasxe to the market,
[11:00] {Threei} care to explain how come they allow such a hit on their own stock?
[11:01] {Threei} 50/50 ilana
[11:01] {Threei} not a clear setup
[11:01] {Les} cause they sold it all?
[11:01] {ilana} i bet on first 50
[11:01] {Threei} I'd say, if I had to play it it would be short,
[11:01] {Threei} but given a choice, I'd stay away
[11:05] {ese} shw...very recognizable pattern from your book vad
[11:07] {ese} flatline at the high P125
[11:07] {Threei} the range is a bit too wide for my taste though, ese
[11:08] {Threei} you covered RIMM yet Ilana?
[11:08] {ilana} yes, +.20
[11:08] {Threei} wtg
[11:09] {ese} yes your book is .05/.10

[11:20] {nemo} .15 is 200 ma

[11:24] {Threei} Short Setup: GS 153 break
[11:24] {nemo} no thanks
[11:24] {larisa} lol
[11:24] {Threei} if stays under .15
[11:25] {Threei} invalidated anyway
[11:25] {Threei} fade would have worked though
[11:26] {nemo} another 1/4 .45
[11:26] {nemo} stop to .40
[11:26] {Les} FITB .20 b/o
[11:26] {magoo} hey all

[11:29] {dino} .
[11:29] {Threei} FITB works for a scalp
[11:30] {Threei} ugh, why didn't I add comment on GS being two-sided setup
[11:30] {nemo} stop rimm
[11:30] {Les} yeh I'm getting a bit of a revenge trade happening on fitb
[11:31] {nemo} big order .40 on x
[11:32] {nemo} frickin .01 away from 1:1 x and then stopped me
[11:34] {Threei} why Les
[11:34] {Threei} that was a valid setup
[11:35] {Les} I've dug me a big bloody hole on fitb today
[11:35] {Les} it's going down
[11:35] {Les} will take this next setup if q's break resistance
[11:35] {Threei} I mean I wouldn't call it revenge trading since setup was right
[11:36] {Les} ok. let's say it is my primary focus of today
[11:36] {Threei} revenge trading is trasdes you take because you see them where there are none, out of desire to dig out of hole
[11:46] {ese} skydogs parachute ain't working

[11:53] {ese} big volume spike
[11:53] {nemo} yeah, and it's moving it
[11:54] {Threei} don't think it has any significance as far immediate read goes
[11:54] {Threei} market spike is moving it
[11:54] {nemo} offers getting hit
[11:54] {nemo} no bids last minute

[12:18] {nemo} reached new high 11:45 on spy and 5 minutes ago on Qs
[12:23] {nemo} that rimm volume spike makes it hard to read volume :)

[12:59] {Threei} not sure about AIG
[12:59] {Threei} this kind of flatline can resolve either way
[13:00] {Les} wfc pushing hod
[13:00] {nemo} fcx riing support
[13:00] {nemo} riding
[13:02] {nemo} nice of it to break down
[13:15] {Les} vad, was about to buy SLB with a .15 break, .09 stop
[13:15] {Les} it did what I thought itm ight do, go to .30 resistance.
[13:15] {Les} was t his a legit setup for you?
[13:15] {Threei} more or less
[13:16] {Threei} a bit marginal
[13:16] {nemo} hahahah no pun intended
[13:16] {Les} no, this is not a bounce play?
[13:16] {Threei} kind of diascretionary one,
[13:16] {Les} ok
[13:16] {Threei} can be played, can be ignored, depending on one's degree of boredom
[13:17] {Les} I've always been fascinated with your calls where sell off turns to bounce and you catch them
[13:17] {Les} trying to look at this bounce through such a lens
[13:18] {Threei} the idea is right overall,
[13:18] {Threei} it's jujst that this one didn't give strong indications
[13:19] {Threei} slide was too slow, no decisive definition of support
[13:20] {Les} ok
[13:21] {Les} s cb .49
[13:28] {Les} took MEE for +.10
[13:29] {Les} cb +.04
[13:29] {Les} I'm only happy when I'm shorting
[13:29] {ilana} nice scalping
[13:29] {Threei} all the time or during last days?
[13:30] {Les} this last week of green came on back of shorting
[13:31] {Threei} well, no wonder, considering market drop
[13:31] {strider} I'm with Les. In current market, I never believe an upside breakout will happen.
[13:31] {Threei} now, imaginbe the predicament of investors and those traders that never got comfortable with concept of shorting
[13:31] {strider} Took the STLD though , and glad I did.
[13:32] {Les} happy to have shorting in my toolbox
[13:32] {strider} Part of that may be because there are so many accounts you can't short in.........IRAs, for instance.
[13:32] {strider} Most people don't have much exposure to shorting.
[13:33] {Threei} yes, I guess that plays part
[13:33] {Threei} plus idiotic propaganda
[13:33] {Threei} that portraits shorting as un-patriotic
[13:34] {Threei} and imbecilic statements about infinite risk in short position, while long one has zero as limit of going against you
[13:34] {strider} When I first had it explained to me , was by a 'stockbroker'..........who's whole philosophy (for his clients at least) was buy and hold........no matter what...just hang on.
[13:34] {strider} For that philosophy, fear of shorting makes some sense.
[13:34] {Threei} that's a good philosophy
[13:34] {strider} You can only lose your original total investment.
[13:35] {Threei} has just one concept, doesn't require much thinking
[13:35] {Threei} I like it
[13:35] {strider} Let me introduce yo to him.
[13:35] {strider} He doesn't have much to do these days.
[13:35] {strider} I'm sure he'll have time for you.
[13:35] {Threei} sure thing, I must know people that participate in a noble process of putting food on my table
[13:36] {strider} Thing is, he doesn't do that himself. He swing trades.
[13:36] {strider} But because it costs his clients 30-80 bucks to make a trade, they have to follow the buy and hold philosophy.
[13:38] {Threei} for a second I felt a pinch of conscience
[13:38] {Threei} then it went away
[13:38] {strider} nah...
[13:38] {Threei} I do offer to educate them
[13:38] {Threei} if they don't take me up on the offer but elect to listen to those types instead,
[13:38] {Threei} my conscience is clear when I take their money
[13:39] {strider} I call it the " buy a stock, wait till it goes down, and sell it" technique. I've done a bit of that in the past.
[13:40] {strider} The problem of course, is folks who try to derive passive income from stock investments...........
[13:41] {strider} They're given this bullshit advice that "over the long term" the market will go up.
[13:41] {strider} If you're 15 years old, that probably works.
[13:42] {strider} If you're 60, it's ridiculous.'
[13:42] {Threei} it works under 3 conditions:
[13:43] {Threei} 1. you are invested in index itself, not in underlying companies, otherwise you may becomne a victim of index reshuffling
[13:43] {Threei} 2. you get lucky enough to make most of your investements at the low of the cycle and come to an age of withdrawal near the top of the cycle
[13:44] {Threei} 3. Inflation is not too rampant during your investmnent sycle
[13:44] {Threei} cycle
[13:45] {strider} Or......one can aspire to be like dino.............
[13:45] {strider} a vampire.
[13:46] {strider} young or old, it makes no difference.......an equal opportunity blood-sucker.
[13:46] {larisa} dino takes stocks that already out of blood :)
[13:46] {strider} God, I hate myself.
[13:46] {strider} That's true, larisa.
[13:46] {strider} But he assures me he shorts also.......just haven't seen much of it yet.
[13:47] {dino} hmmmm
[13:47] {larisa} lol
[13:47] {dino} i short a lot, just lately buying dips has worked
[13:47] {strider} YOu want to buy my ex-broker? He's a dip.

[08:48] {Les} actually not true. friday screwed me up, but tue thru thurs was enough to compensate
[08:49] {Threei} main concern with live trading like this is a boring day with nothing to trade
[08:49] {Threei} the rest I can handle well, even if market is not cooperating,
[08:49] {Threei} just show the [princip[le of stop placement and iron discvipline
[08:50] {Les} how many people sitting in on your course?
[08:50] {Threei} but if you run into situation when no trades are around, and you have a lot of eyes... that's nasty
[08:50] {Threei} a few dozens

[10:09] {Threei} Long Setup: FITB .45 if holding .40
[10:10] {dino} boh stopped -.33
[10:10] {Threei} .40 break if holding .35
[10:10] {Threei} .35 break if holding .30
[10:10] {nemo} .32 support
[10:10] {Threei} usual bottom-hunting routine

[10:15] {Threei} under racketeering laws for selling cigarettes online at a discount and thus avoiding millions of dollars in taxes.
[10:15] {Threei} FITB 1:1
[10:16] {Les} half out

[10:17] {Les} late entry
[10:17] {Threei} where did you enter?
[10:17] {Les} .38
[10:18] {Threei} 1:2
[10:18] {Les} 1k. treated it as type 1
[10:18] {Threei} here is discrepancy in this approach:
[10:18] {Threei} type I requires very precise execution as you have very littlwe room,
[10:19] {Threei} 5 cents stop, buying 3 cents hogher you have way too big % of deviation
[10:19] {Threei} so,
[10:19] {Threei} eoither you treat it as type 2,
[10:19] {Threei} or you enter at your trigger
[10:20] {Threei} 1:3
[10:20] {Threei} see my logicZ?
[10:20] {Les} y
[10:20] {Threei} 1:4
[10:20] {Threei} if you miss it, wait to see if it comes back
[10:20] {Les} there is my fault
[10:20] {Threei} try to angle it as conservative entry
[10:20] {Les} wanting to get on the bandwagon
[10:21] {Threei} yeah, take it easier on a "missed" sidfe
[10:21] {Threei} it's gone - so be it, next bus is around the corner
[10:21] {Les} yeh
[10:21] {strider} vix at 25ish......hod near 28
[10:21] {dino} rino sm l .75
[10:22] {strider} sorry...28 was from friday.
[10:22] {ese} Lcien .91
[10:22] {Threei} when you weed out those tradesd where you chase your entry, you'll sdee nice improvemnent on overall performance
[10:22] {Les} yes, am repeating mistakes recognised from friday
[10:23] {Les} when market was bouncing like this
[10:23] {ese} stop .84

[10:30] {Threei} IVAN requires momo fern
[10:30] {fernp} ok. ty

[10:31] {Threei} I'd avoid it at no-momo-times

[10:34] {nemo} np
[10:37] {Threei} unclear moment in the market
[10:38] {Threei} we are at 100% so far, don't want to push too much right now
[10:38] {Threei} waiting for a clearer setup
[10:38] {nemo} plus...it's lunchtime in the middle of the atlantic
[10:39] {Les} that would mean its 11 oclock drinkies over your way...
[10:40] {nemo} no...recovering from watching seven hours of football yesterday
[10:40] {Threei} ok, while it's quiet
[10:40] {Threei} tyhere is something about me and boats... seems being on them increases my drinking capacity
[10:40] {Threei} just as last time in Nassau,
[10:41] {nemo} I can vouch for that
[10:41] {Threei} it turned out this time that having a glass of rum in one hand, glass of bahama-mama in another and using latter to wash down the former
[10:41] {Threei} creates a hell of a pasrty very quickly
[10:41] {Les} fas at support. watching b/d for WFC short .20
[10:42] {larisa} if you remember it so clear, you did not have enough :)
[10:42] {dino} lol
[10:43] {Les} is that why you have head in your hand in the photo you published?
[10:43] {Les} you don't look very chirpy
[10:43] {Threei} it just was to early to be fully awaken
[10:43] {strider} cover HOG +.06........forming dbl bottom
[10:44] {Threei} I do remember that I decisiveli declined invitation to scale the climbing wall
[10:44] {Threei} so I guess some degree of self-control was there
[10:45] {Les} note to self - vad is not a masochist
[10:46] {Threei} not at all
[10:46] {nemo} why'd you get married then?
[10:46] {Threei} my motto is - no pain? good!
[10:46] {Threei} I was young and stupid
[10:46] {strider} haha
[10:46] {Les} well you won't be any fun on a pub crawl
[10:47] {strider} I guess you won't be participating in any beer runs, soon?
[10:47] {strider} Used to be in running club.......
[10:47] {strider} couple of times we had a 10kilometer race.......
[10:48] {strider} had to stop at each mile and drink a beer.

[10:49] {Threei} pullback intp .40 is where I'd get interested
[10:49] {strider} still hasn't really gone anywhere from my .62 entry.
[10:51] {Les} now finance.yahoo.com is down

[10:53] {Threei} many sites work for some parts of the world while not for others
[10:53] {strider} probably some servers on east coast are having problems. I saw it some last night as well. Big time rain here.
[10:54] {Les} someone cut a main network route again...

[10:34] {Threei} - Citing a more "hopeful state of world affairs" in relation to the twin threats posed by nuclear weapons and climate change, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) is moving the minute hand of its famous Doomsday Clock one minute away from midnight. It is now 6 minutes to midnight. The decision by the BAS Science and Security Board was made in consultation with the Bulletin's Board of Sponsors, which includes 19 Nobel Laureates
[10:35] {Threei} I am sorry, if thery beliueve climate change is a threat, then what exactly changed to the better?
[10:35] {nemo} Obamanator
[10:35] {Threei} - BAS Board said: "It is 6 minutes to midnight. We are poised to bend the arc of history toward a world free of nuclear weapons. For the first time since atomic bombs were dropped in 1945, leaders of nuclear weapons states are cooperating to vastly reduce their arsenals and secure all nuclear bomb-making material.
[10:35] {Threei} And for the first time ever, industrialized and developing countries alike are pledging to limit climate-changing gas emissions that could render our planet nearly uninhabitable. These unprecedented steps are signs of a growing political will to tackle the two gravest threats to civilization -- the terror of nuclear weapons and runaway climate change."

[12:40] {Threei} deliberate, and possibly illegal market manipulation. Beginning February 17, 2009, Mr. Barry Minkow, a convicted felon, and his Fraud Discovery Institute (FDI) posted on the FDI website a "report" authored by his close associate, Mr. Robert Fitzpatrick, which accused Medifast through its direct selling subsidiary, Take Shape for Life, Inc., of being: 1) an illegal "endless chain" pyramid, and 2) a Ponzi scheme comparable to that perpetrated by Bernard Madoff.
[12:40] {Threei} - The attacks continued with subsequent "reports" and updates posted by Mr. Minkow, Mr. Fitzgerald and their co-conspirators in May and June 2009; and most recently January 8, 2010. The allegations are patently untrue. They were made with the intent to manipulate the share price of Medifast downward (which occurred) in order for Mr. Minkow and others to profit from his subsequently disclosed short position in Medifast stock, which he acquired prior to publishing his first fraudulent attack.
[12:40] {Threei} - These public allegations were made in mid- February 2009 and were immediately followed by significant short selling and short selling option puts that shaved more than $30 million from the market capitalization of Medifast.The companyhas demanded that this third party take down its website information containing false information or be subject to appropriate legal action.

Jan 12 2010

Much better trading today as VIX raises and volatility returns, paired with first signs of trend. Most trades on a short side, most worked nicely. Some were capable of much more than a scalp, like DNDN short off $30.

[14:20] {Les} ok
[14:20] {Les} I've been playing with AMZN, trying to learn it a little

[14:21] {Threei} don't know what to say on EVK, no slightest idea
[14:21] {Threei} for you, americans:
[14:21] {Threei} (US) Fed is implementing rules in regards to Credit Card Act; consumers must comply with most aspects of the rule by February 22
[14:21] {Threei} - In December 2008, the Federal Reserve adopted final regulations prohibiting unfair credit card practices and improving the disclosures consumers receive in connection with credit card accounts. This rule amends aspects of those regulations to implement provisions of the Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 (Credit Card Act), which was enacted in May 2009.
[14:22] {Threei} - Among other things, the rule will:
[14:22] {Threei} - Protect consumers from unexpected increases in credit card interest rates by generally prohibiting increases in a rate during the first year after an account is opened and increases in a rate that applies to an existing credit card balance.
[14:22] {Threei} - Prohibit creditors from issuing a credit card to a consumer who is younger than the age of 21 unless the consumer has the ability to make the required payments or obtains the signature of a parent or other cosigner with the ability to do so.
[14:22] {Threei} - Require creditors to obtain a consumer's consent before charging fees for transactions that exceed the credit limit.
[14:22] {Threei} - Limit the high fees associated with subprime credit cards.
[14:22] {Threei} - Ban creditors from using the "two-cycle" billing method to impose interest charges.
[14:22] {Threei} - Prohibit creditors from allocating payments in ways that maximize interest charges.
[14:22] {Threei} and now for the better news:

[11:06] {Threei} 1. you taxpayer provide bailout money
[11:06] {Threei} 2. we want to repay you
[11:07] {Threei} 3. we charge you additional fee via banks
[11:07] {Threei} 4. that collected fee is how we repay you

[11:24] {Threei} it tend to drop sharply off more or less random points somewhere up there
[11:24] {Threei} but fails breakdowns of the low
[11:24] {Threei} look at its today's 1 min
[11:25] {Threei} you'll find a lot of those drops for which there is no real indicatiojn
[11:25] {Threei} and no sinhgle successful break of the low
[11:25] {Les} ok. missed the $2 gap on fcx. looking for GLD to pay up

[13:36] {Threei} Fed's Lacker: Commercial Real estate likely to be a sizeable drag on growth in near term; housing and auto sector no longer causing a drag for growth
[13:36] {Threei} that's a bild statement
[13:36] {Threei} bold
[13:37] {dino} what world does he live in
[13:37] {strider} I don't understand why SRS doesn't go up.
[13:37] {Threei} ummm
[13:37] {Threei} because market doesn't go dopwn?
[13:38] {Threei} what do you think SRS is? :)
[13:38] {nemo} financials are a big part of srs
[13:38] {strider} ultrashort real estate
[13:38] {nemo} has many of the components of skf
[13:38] {Threei} so why would it go up?
[13:39] {dino} reits have been doing very well
[13:39] {strider} because of lagging realestate?
[13:39] {dino} talking heads strider the big reits are rocking
[13:39] {strider} But isn't commercial doing poorly?
[13:40] {nemo} so isn't the economy...what's your point?
[13:40] {dino} not the stocks
06[13:40] * nemo slaps strider around a bit with a large trout
06[13:40] * nemo slaps strider around a bit with a large trout
[13:40] {dino} residential is the drag
[13:40] {strider} eat a fish, nemo.
[13:41] {nemo} that's cannabilism to me
[13:41] {strider} .what's your point?
[13:41] {nemo} har har har
[13:42] {strider} I keep watching SRS, and O (the stock) waiting for a dump. Just simple minded, I guess.
[13:42] {nemo} there's no reason for stocks to go down, no other alternatives
[13:43] {strider} live in igloos.
[13:43] {nemo} have to make new ones every year
[13:43] {strider} Or you could rent my rental house. IT's empty.
[13:45] {dino} strider, most of the big "commercial" real estate companies issued equity months ago, they are fine and moving up
[13:45] {nemo} besides...they know they'll get bailed out because they're backed up by the big banks
[13:45] {dino} it is the banks dumping the houses that remains the problem, imo
[13:46] {nemo} or not dumping them
[13:46] {dino} i think equity issuance took care of that nemo
[13:47] {nemo} yeah, they don't have to, so no write offs to reserve ratios
[13:49] {strider} OK.........obviously I don't understand such stuff.
[13:49] {nemo} Vad'll explain it to you
[13:50] {strider} you mean trades AND knows stuff?
[13:50] {strider} he
[13:50] {nemo} amazing fellow that Vad

[12:20] {Threei} see?
[12:20] {Threei} [12:11] {Alert} Threei and if she objects it's either because I don't get women at all (no big surprise there) or because she just likes to object
[12:24] {larisa} I just have to defend my favorite setup :) it is not what you think it is
[12:24] {Threei} of course not
[12:24] {larisa} lol
[12:24] {Threei} now... I knew a couple once,
[12:25] {Threei} for 35 years husband was giving the same gift to a wife on every borthday,
[12:25] {Threei} parfume that he gave her once during courting years
[12:25] {Threei} and she said she loved it.
[12:25] {Threei} Parfume went out of production,
[12:25] {Threei} He went to great lengths to keep finding it
[12:26] {Threei} She never told him she hated it, always,
[12:26] {Threei} she was simply polite that fuirst time,
[12:26] {Threei} and then he was so happy to do it for her
[12:26] {Threei} she kept accepting it and thanking him
[12:27] {Threei} GSK German health officials reportedly plan to reduce order for swine flu vaccine doses by half to 25M doses; officials say GSK is willing to accept the reduced order
[12:28] {Threei} why wouldn't it... a few month more and no one will order it for ages
[12:28] {larisa} She may be polite but not smart. With men you have to tell them directly what you want.
[12:29] {patience} vad, give me your money

[12:29] {fernp} LVS, Vad?

[13:56] {Threei} Imax Corp Exec: 2010 is poised to be one of the best years we have ever seen for the business - Citi conf call
[13:56] {Threei} - Digital projection and distribution, and the elimination of very expensive film prints, have transformed the business.
[14:02] {Threei} Study on electric cars casts doubt on the chances for widespread adoption of electric cars by 2020 (related ABAT )
[14:03] {Threei} seriously?
[14:04] {Threei} - Although electric-car battery costs are expected to fall sharply over the coming decade, they are unlikely to drop enough to spark widespread adoption of fully electric vehicles without a major breakthrough in battery technology, according to a new study by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG).
[14:04] {Threei} - The study concludes that the long-term cost target used by many carmakers in planning their future fleets of electric cars$250 per kilowatt-hour (kWh)is unlikely to be achieved unless there is a major breakthrough in battery chemistry that substantially increases the energy a battery can store without significantly increasing the cost of either battery materials or the manufacturing process.
[14:04] {Threei} - Most electric cars in the new decade will use lithium-ion batteries, which are lighter and more powerful than the nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries used today in hybrids like the Toyota Prius. Citing the current cost of similar lithium-ion batteries used in consumer electronics (about $250 to $400 per kWh), many original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs) hope that the cost of an automotive lithium-ion battery pack will fall from its current price of between $1,000 and $1,200 per kWh to between $250 and $500 per kWh at scaled production.
[14:04] {Threei} - BCG, however, points out that consumer batteries are simpler than car batteries and must meet significantly less demanding requirements, especially regarding safety and life span. So actual battery costs will likely be higher than what carmakers predict.
[14:04] {Threei} - Despite this cost challenge, the report projects steady growth for electric cars and batteries. Electric cars include mild and full hybrids (like the early Toyota Prius and 2010 Ford Fusion, respectively), which combine an internal combustion engine (ICE) power train with supplementary electric motors to run the car at idle and low speeds; plug-in hybrids and range-extended electric vehicles (such as the next-generation Prius and General Motors' Chevrolet Volt, respectively), which combine electric motors with a supplementary ICE to run the motors after the batteries have been depleted; and fully electric vehicles (like the Mitsubishi i MiEV and upcoming Nissan Leaf), which can only be recharged by plugging into the power grid.

[15:19] {Threei} why that faR FROM TRIGGER?
[15:19] {Les} chased it
[15:19] {Les} lod was .04
[15:19] {Les} so 3 cents
[15:20] {Les} too much risk?
[15:20] {Threei} well, where is your stop?
[15:20] {Les} .15
[15:20] {Les} it's largish
[15:21] {Les} but risking 14 cents for further b/d before close
[15:21] {strider} CYCC: 2.67
[15:22] {Threei} whole thing feels like one big setup for me
[15:22] {Threei} CYCC has NASDFAQ's notice of delisting
[15:22] {dino} greenn scanners
[15:22] {Threei} from Dec 9
[15:23] {strider} they're over a dollar now. Is that what it was about?
[15:23] {strider} Are you suggesting 'they' are doing this, vad?
[15:24] {Threei} - Cyclacel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq:CYCC) (Nasdaq:CYCCP) ("Cyclacel" or the "Company") today announced that, on December 9, 2009, the Company was notified by the NASDAQ Staff that the Company does not comply with the minimum $10 million stockholders' equity requirement set forth in NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(b)(1)(A) (the "Rule") and that the Company's securities are subject to delisting from The Nasdaq Global Market unless the Company requests a hearing before a NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel (the "Panel").
[15:24] {Threei} Cyclacel intends to timely request a hearing before a Panel, which automatically stays the delisting of the Company's securities pending the issuance of the Panel's decision after a hearing. Under NASDAQ's Listing Rules, the Panel may, at its discretion, determine to continue the Company's listing pursuant to an exception to the Rule for a maximum of 180 days from the date of the Staff's notification or through June 7, 2010. However, there can be no assurances that the Panel will do so.
[15:26] {Les} really? rig one's stock price to stay in the NASDAQ?
[15:26] {strider} so do you think the news is phoney?
[15:26] {Threei} I'vw no idea
[15:29] {Threei} I have certainly seen this kind of situations before
[15:30] {Threei} but I alsao have seen real cases when company would pull itself from brionk of destrcuction
[15:30] {Threei} only typed better
[15:31] {Threei} I even saw a case when CEO promised great news after the close, and got a lot of people to buy... only to announce voluntary delisting
[15:31] {fernp} lol
[15:31] {strider} ha
[15:31] {Threei} where is cosmo, he could name the symbol right away :)
[15:31] {Threei} it's a real story, I am not kidding
[15:32] {strider} I guess he sold his shares before close.
[15:32] {fernp} of course
[15:32] {Threei} better yet
[15:32] {Threei} stock went to pink sheets, and in a few months he nmanaged to maNIPULATE THE PRICE TO ABOUT 15
[15:33] {Threei} so, in a way he was right... it was a good news
[15:33] {strider} news was that CEO was a very clever guy.
[15:36] {strider} where IS cosmo?
[15:36] {Threei} still in Australia?
[15:36] {strider} vacation?
[15:37] {Threei} that's what he said
[15:46] {fernp} SDS short if breaks .30?
[15:47] {Threei} if market breaks out, sure
[15:47] {Threei} but are you willing to play general market breakout right now?
[15:47] {fernp} nah
[15:53] {fernp} Good evening everybody. See you all tomorrow
[15:53] {strider} night fern.
[15:53] {Threei} take care fern
[15:54] {strider} Guess who's gonna be on TV at 4:30?
[15:55] {larisa} Josh Holloway ?
[15:55] {Threei} Til Ulenshpigel?
[15:55] {larisa} wow
[15:55] {strider} you're both right....in parallel universes.
[15:55] {Les} Umar Farouk?
[15:55] {strider} No. No parallel universe for that.
[15:56] {Threei} he can't stand
[15:56] {Threei} nor sit
[15:56] {Threei} nor procreate
[15:56] {Threei} there are natural consequences to setting one's crotch on fire, ya know
[15:56] {Les} that's why CNBC wants him on TV
[15:58] {Les} out seed flat
[15:59] {strider} new high, CYCC.
[15:59] {strider} I bought small at .55,,,,,see how aftermarket looks.
[15:59] {Les} time is up. night all
[16:00] {Threei} thank you all
[16:00] {strider} nite vad.
[16:00] {Threei} better day
[16:00] {Les} yeh thank you vad. starting to work out now
[16:00] {Threei} but far from stellar still
[16:00] {Threei} it's a process
[16:00] {strider} Stellar would be good.

[16:00] {Threei} have a good evening, see you tomorrow

Jan 06 2010

One more day of low volatility and things working pretty much in random fashion. The same setups on the same stocks work and fail with 50/50 odds.

Session Time: Wed Jan 06 00:00:00 2010

[08:21] {nemo} morning from the frozen People's Republic of Massachusetts
[08:22] {strider} morning from the moderately frozen south.
[08:23] {nemo} damn confederates
[08:23] {strider} 22F here.
[08:23] {strider} damn yankees.
[08:24] {nemo} Funny...we've got a Civil War monument in town it faces south. A friend of mine's grandfather, who had a wicked sense of humor, says it's because you always had to keep an eye on those southerners
[08:24] {strider} now that's true.
[08:25] {nemo} When I lived in SC about 20 years ago, I was surprised to see the Confederate flag flying over the capital, as well as more than a few bumper stickers that said "Lee surrendered, I didn't"
[08:27] {strider} I think it was still there until last year or so.
[08:27] {strider} People confuse the map with the territory.
[08:27] {nemo} within a few years, yeah
[08:28] {strider} iow, confuse the symbol for the attitude.
[08:28] {strider} or, confuse allegiance to the conferacy with allegiance to slavery/racism.
[08:28] {nemo} yeah...well, SC was where I first saw the bumper sticker, "The voices in my head told me to stay home from work today and clean my guns."
[08:29] {nemo} No, I thought the former, not the latter. As a matter of fact, there seemed to be alot less racial tension there than up here
[08:29] {nemo} It's a big money making industry up here
[08:29] {strider} Only if you planned on attacking us.
[08:31] {nemo} then again, up here I first saw the bumper sticker, "If I'd known what would have happened, I'd have picked my own cotton."
[08:32] {Raven} there will soon be a Federal Agency to regulate bumper stickers
[08:32] {nemo} I don't doubt it
[08:33] {strider} Hey, that would be a great bumper sticker!
[08:33] {Raven} never thought of that ... I'll be RICHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
[08:34] {Threei} hah... ese's going to make a killing on ABAT
[08:34] {nemo} yeah, saw that
[08:35] {strider} re: picking cotton......I tried that for about 5 minutes...pure misery.
[08:37] {strider} FDO could be interesting today.
[08:38] {strider} Vad, what default route do you use?
[08:41] {Threei} for NASDAQ I usually don't bother to turn routing on at all,
[08:41] {Threei} unless I just switched from listed stock and forgot
[08:41] {Threei} for listed, I check the Route On box and keep it on NASDAQ
[08:42] {Threei} mostly to avoid MLCO which is default for smart route on listeds
[08:43] {strider} so you're using smart route for nasdaq?
[08:43] {strider} didn't understand: " for NASDAQ I usually don't bother to turn routing on at all,"
[08:44] {Threei} for nasdaq stocks
[08:45] {Threei} yes
[08:46] {strider} I've found that nasdaq often doesn't have best bid/ask when trading HOG.
[08:46] {strider} so when I try to enter/exit at limit, I don't get filled.
[08:46] {strider} Was wondering route would be best to use.
[08:47] {nemo} what are you using then?
[08:47] {strider} Been switching to smart route, just cause it was first in line.
[08:47] {nemo} oy vay
[08:47] {strider} Don't know if fees are higher for that, though.
[08:48] {nemo} smart hits a dark pool first I think
[08:49] {nemo} GETCO to be specific
[08:49] {strider} Is that a good thing or a bad thing:)
[08:50] {nemo} well, it's cheaper if you get it from GETCO, but...it tries there first and then proceeds to other sources, which takes time, so if you need fast execution...forget it
[08:50] {strider} what do you use for listed/nasdaq--nemo.
[08:51] {Threei} wait
[08:51] {nemo} me..yes
[08:51] {Threei} strider... if you have Route Out checked in the big window that pops up when you right click on level2,
[08:51] {Threei} you don't care who is at the bid or offer
[08:52] {Threei} your order will hit them all
[08:53] {nemo} vad, on that general tab under "Hit Adjust", what do you have as a value for the NASDAQ window
[08:54] {Threei} zero
[08:54] {nemo} ty
[08:54] {Threei} but I am not sure it's optimal
[08:54] {Threei} I don't remember what it is
[08:55] {Threei} it's been years since I configured all that
[08:55] {nemo} for some reason, mine was set at .0020
[08:55] {Threei} ARCA is set to .03
[08:55] {strider} I have all boxes checked for 'route out'.....still haven't been getting fills through Nasdaq.
[08:55] {nemo} .03 or .0030
[08:56] {strider} Is that under the shave column, nemo?
[08:56] {Threei} 08:46] {strider} I've found that nasdaq often doesn't have best bid/ask when trading HOG.
[08:56] {Threei} [08:46] {strider} so when I try to enter/exit at limit, I don't get filled.
[08:56] {Threei} that's why
[08:56] {nemo} just above Route Out
[08:56] {Threei} move a few cents beyond, you'll get your fills
[08:56] {strider} confused.
[08:57] {Threei} you are trying to hit inside quote, if you are a LITTLE LATE IT GETS AWAY FROM YOU
[08:57] {strider} that's not what I mean.
[08:58] {strider} I'm just trying to enter or exit at static best bid/ask. It's not moving.
[08:58] {strider} I must be missing something on lvl 2.
[08:58] {Threei} buying at the offer or selling at bid?
[08:58] {Threei} or buying at bid and selling at the offer?
[08:59] {strider} I think the first, of course........but I may sometimes try to do the second.
[08:59] {strider} and that's what's happening.
[08:59] {strider} I'll watch it.
[08:59] {Threei} if the second, then no wonder
[08:59] {strider} yeah.
[08:59] {Threei} if first, andf there are enough shares, your fill is instant
[08:59] {strider} nemo....what does 'hit adjust' mean?
[09:00] {strider} kk
[09:00] {strider} k
[09:00] {nemo} I don't know, just saw the setting
[09:01] {Threei} by the sound of it, I'd think it does automatically what I do by clicking at the price beyond market
[09:01] {Threei} but let's not assume and ask Trev instead
[09:01] {strider} yeah, that would be good to know.
[09:02] {strider} Also, I don't know what the 'shave' column does.
[09:04] {Threei} there is a video tutorial on Laser
[09:05] {strider} yeah, I've watched it. have a nemo-memory, though.
[09:06] {strider} Besides, they assume you already know what a lot of those terms mean. Like 'shave'. Seem to recall they don't define it.
[09:06] {Threei} well, if you watch the part that shows what it does it should explain things, no?
[09:07] {strider} My recollection is that it just says something like: if you want to change the shave settings, here is where you do it.
[09:07] {Threei} that's helpful
[09:07] {strider} yeah:)
[09:08] {strider} FNSR, CREE FDO

[09:31] {nemo} mos $2 on the open
[09:32] {Threei} PIMCO's Bill Gross Monthly Outlook: US and UK may suffer as exit strategies are implemented
[09:32] {Threei} - "If 2008 was the year of financial crisis and 2009 the year of healing via monetary and fiscal stimulus packages, then 2010 appears likely to be the year of exit strategies, during which investors should consider economic fundamentals and asset markets that will soon be priced in a world less dominated by the government sector. If, in 2009, PIMCO recommended shaking hands with the government, we now ponder which government, and caution that the days of carefree check writing leading to debt issuance without limit or interest rate consequences may be numbered for all countries."

[12:27] {strider} does CAL look like a long to you now?
[12:27] {Threei} that's already one day above my normal
[12:27] {nemo} did you just use the word "normal"?
[12:28] {dino} i am better today, but had to downsize shares, getting rinsed m and t

[12:46] {strider} thanks for nuthin.
[12:46] {dino} rather a scooby snack
[12:46] {nemo} roro
[12:46] {dino} what do you make of lnce nemo?
[12:46] {Threei} here is useful tip
[12:47] {dino} i was at 24.05 but didn't get to me
[12:47] {Threei} if you want to lenghten the box, make sure that the spot where you grab lower part of the window is NOT right under Market Buy button
[12:47] {Threei} ask me how I came to this conclusion
[12:47] {nemo} hehehehe
[12:48] {strider} I have the same issue with the down scroll arrow for volume. JUst above sell button.
[12:49] {nemo} after that kind of fall, I'd be afraid it tests the bottom again, volume is not looking positive
[12:49] {nemo} transactions are mixed between bids, offers, and market
[12:49] {nemo} no man's...woman's land
[12:50] {dino} not the response i was expecting:)
[12:50] {nemo} what were you expecting?
[12:50] {dino} hit low .40s sell mid .79s
[12:50] {nemo} C&H on UAUA?
[12:51] {nemo} oh, well low .40's would be test of bottom
[12:51] {dino} more like martini glass
[12:51] {nemo} o.kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk??????????
[12:52] {strider} I've been using a techinique for scrolling price while in a trade that helps me a lot. After entry, I set the cursor in price box, and use my left index and middle finger on up and down arrow keys, while keeping cursor over exit button. Need to set arrow keys to move by .01 in trade settings.
[12:52] {dino} lol

Jan 05 2010

Volume returns in the market and ranges were much wider today. Not much readability still but we are getting there. Probably biggest surprise of the day - airlines, strength against all common sense.

[07:41] {Threei} Tuesday, January 05, 2010 7:30:23 AM
[07:41] {Threei} Geron Corp Journal publishes positive data on telomerase inhibitor in Glioblastoma
[07:41] {Threei} - This preclinical data demonstrates that telomerase inhibitor drug, imetelstat, inhibited telomerase activity and reduced tumor size in xenograft models of glioblastoma, and inhibited the activity of glioblastoma stem cells in culture. The data, authored by Geron collaborators at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, were published in the January 1, 2010 issue of Clinical Cancer Research.
[07:41] {Threei} - CEO: "Cancer stem cells pose an additional therapeutic challenge. These data add to the growing list of cancer types where the inhibition of cancer stem cells by imetelstat has been shown preclinically. We will further investigate imetelstat's anti-cancer stem cell potential clinically in our Phase II trials in breast and lung cancers, multiple myeloma and chronic leukemias that will begin later this year."

[11:38] {Threei} not sure strider
[11:39] {ese} fwlt....bull trap....big time
[11:41] {ese} same potential with ctsh.....looks lke it wants to break to new highs but the market is moving the other direction
[11:43] {ese} ctsh looks to be carrying on though
[11:44] {Threei} keeping an eye on ABAT
[11:45] {ese} .45 break bad?
[11:45] {ese} ahhh vad?
[11:45] {Threei} I think so
[11:45] {Threei} main thing is .50 break, IMO
[11:45] {Threei} that should give a start to real momo
[11:46] {fernp} stop is .35?
[11:46] {Threei} maybe half at .45 break and add half on .50
[11:46] {ilana} look at offer at .45
[11:46] {Threei} yes fern
[11:47] {fernp} k
[11:48] {ese} markets tend to move towards size ilana
[11:49] {Threei} often, yes.. acts as magnet
[11:49] {ese} i remember reading that in Josh Lukemans book " The Market Makers Edge"......
[11:49] {nemo} size matters?
[11:49] {ese} L abat .46
[11:49] {strider} me too
[11:50] {fernp} here too
[11:50] {ese} other than vads books....i found that one to be the most informative and reliable
[11:50] {ese} i just didn't know how to use it at the time.......
[11:51] {nemo} good night Irene
[11:52] {ese} but that was indeed one of his statements....being a market maker....because they get paid per trade......"markets tend to move towards size in the short term"....
[11:52] {nemo} looks like abat bounced off size
[11:53] {Threei} just don't come out with denial now, ABAT
[11:53] {ese} abat....."bat out of hell".....just missed stop
[11:54] {Threei} be a good boy, take CBAK's way and deny al you want after hours
[11:55] {ese} we seem to be in bull trap territory in general
[11:56] {Threei} sigh
[11:56] {fernp} out here
[11:56] {ese} stopped
[11:56] {Threei} here is what happens with trading activity guys, so we understand where we are, why it's so tough right now and what to expect
[11:56] {ese} -.07
[11:57] {Threei} for about a year, starting from last fall, we had enormous, pratcically unprecedented volatility
[11:57] {ese} baaaaaaaasssssstad
[11:57] {Threei} VIX hit all time records if I remember correct
[11:57] {Threei} what happens next, when the pendulum goes this far?
[11:58] {nemo} snap back
[11:58] {Threei} naturally, it snaps all the way back
[11:58] {nemo} so now it's quiet as sheep
[11:58] {Threei} exactly
[11:58] {Threei} we are going through other extreme right now
[11:58] {nemo} EOW next
[11:58] {Threei} hours and hours with no movement, day after day
[11:59] {Threei} while nice volatility was there, we had no problem with profiting day after day
[11:59] {Threei} with many days running at 90-100%
[11:59] {Threei} VIX is around 20 now
[11:59] {Threei} volatility all but died,
[11:59] {Threei} so what's next?
[11:59] {nemo} EOW
[12:00] {Threei} another snap back
[12:00] {Threei} with sharp increase in volatility
[12:00] {nemo} probably not until after this earnings season
[12:00] {Threei} this is when we go through two stages:
[12:00] {Threei} first being,
[12:00] {Threei} adjusting to some changes in the movements,
[12:01] {Threei} spotting new sectors,
[12:01] {Threei} new patterns
[12:01] {Threei} not new exactly, rather: which of them work now
[12:01] {strider} long HOG .64, stop .58
[12:01] {Threei} and second being,
[12:01] {Threei} return to normal steady profits
[12:02] {Threei} with occasional bouts of momo movers
[12:02] {Threei} bringing icing on the cake,
[12:02] {Threei} making magoo happy
[12:02] {Threei} and creating general silly bubbling feeling
[12:03] {Threei} so there you go, brief overview of the situation and expectations
[12:03] {Threei} all who are at it for years see nothing out of ordinary - just a phase
[12:03] {Threei} newer traders percieve it differently somewhat, with feeling that it all happens for the first time ever
[12:04] {strider} that would be me.

[12:11] {Threei} look:

[13:55] {Les} can you see a bounce in that movement?
[13:55] {Les} or potential for?
[13:55] {Threei} this is sharp selloff with volume spike, likely to produce better bounce
[13:55] {Threei} not ready yet
[13:59] {Threei} ok, probably last leg of selling starts
[13:59] {Threei} one more sharp dive and let's hunt

[14:09] {Les} a big selloff like that doesn't guarantee trend reversal, or big bounce etc

[14:09] {Threei} lost me
[14:10] {Threei} nothing guarantees anything

[14:46] {Threei} scalp from .25 to .40 just now
[14:47] {Threei} I don't know Les
[14:47] {Threei} see, here is the problem I constantly have with the way you shape up the questions:
[14:47] {Threei} you expect prediction
[14:47] {Threei} what WILL happen
[14:47] {Threei} this is fundamentally incorrect approach
[14:49] {Threei} trader's view of the world:
[14:49] {Threei} events give me a clue how I need to react,
[14:49] {Threei} I react on them,
[14:50] {Threei} then it's world's business to tell me whether my reaction was right one or wrong
[14:50] {Threei} and ZI will react again on what it tells me.
[14:52] {larisa} who is ZI
[14:52] {Threei} my evil twin
[14:53] {Les} hgsi .95 break?
[14:54] {Threei} les, am I getting through at all?
[14:54] {Les} why
[14:54] {Threei} every time I try to talk to you about major things foer your trading, you switch to something else
[14:54] {nemo} Trade what you see, not what you think
[14:54] {Threei} am I wasting my breath?
[14:55] {Les} belt up nemo
[14:55] {Les} ok have we stopped trading for the day?
[14:56] {Les} I cannot say what I think in confines of this blog
[14:56] {Les} it would take too long
[14:56] {Les} probably requires face to face weekend at bahamas
[14:56] {Les} but thats another year
[14:56] {Threei} ok, I'll drop it
[14:57] {Threei} no, I don't like how HGSI acts on breaks today
[14:57] {Threei} EUR/USD Goldman Sachs Chief Economist O'Neill: expect dollar to rebound; EUR/USD may reach $1.2000 in the next few years (update
[14:58] {Les} HIG hod
[15:00] {Les} but fear not, your breath is not wasted
[15:01] {nemo} It'll sink in
[15:01] {Threei} RAI Reportedly a US judge rules in favor of tobacco companies in challenge of FDA ban on advertising and label designs, colors and graphics
[15:01] {Threei} - ruling also states tobacco claims cannot be banned just because the FDA has regulated the product
[15:02] {fernp} gotta go. Good evening everybody. See u all tomorrow.
[15:02] {strider} see ya fern.
[15:02] {Threei} take care fern
[15:02] {dino} cya fern
[15:02] {strider} Les, pm
[15:05] {Threei} hmm
[15:05] {dino} mmh
[15:05] {Threei} life is a b*tch
[15:05] {strider} B flat?
[15:05] {dino} in the end it doesn't matter
[15:06] {Threei} after a few stops, trying to avoid causing more harm but still to get a better feel for market changes,
[15:06] {Threei} I decided to take a few trades without calling them
[15:06] {Threei} what do you know
[15:06] {Threei} they all worked like charm
[15:06] {Threei} crap :)
[15:06] {dino} i'm struggling today and yesterday
[15:06] {Threei} ABAT .25 entery for double bottom
[15:07] {Threei} three trades on RIMM
[15:07] {Les} well if it aids to clear up confusion...
[15:08] {Les} I can see that conditions have changed in these two sessions...
[15:08] {Les} and I wanna know why, what, how etc
[15:08] {Les} clearly answers cannot be easily given
[15:09] {Les} this is frustrating in age of "google anything I want anytime I want"
[15:09] {Les} :)
[15:10] {dino} les, only cnbc can tell you with abosolute certainty why, what, how. but of course they will be wrong
[15:10] {larisa} lol
[15:10] {Threei} or they will be right but just a tad late
[15:10] {strider} {&Threei} they all worked like charm
[15:10] {strider} [15:06] {&Threei} crap :) Ya know, you could SHARE!
[15:11] {Threei} that was my dilemma strider
[15:11] {Threei} I dtopped calling them to avoid causing more harm
[15:11] {Threei} and to get in tune better before resuming calls
[15:11] {strider} I don't mean the calls. I mean the CASH!
[15:11] {Threei} oh
[15:11] {Threei} sorry, misundferstood
[15:11] {strider} :)
[15:11] {Threei} sure thing
[15:12] {Threei} still not sure I got it,
[15:12] {Threei} see the problem:
[15:12] {Threei} RIMM entry at 14:19,
[15:12] {Threei} .25
[15:13] {Threei} it's exactly the same setup as one that stopped us earlier
[15:13] {dino} mga?
[15:13] {Threei} ABAT .25 entry
[15:13] {larisa} what was earlier call on RIMM?
[15:14] {dino} these moves are crazy for 2 days, 10-20%, my mind is confused
[15:15] {Threei} 14:06 Larisa,
[15:15] {Threei} .82
[15:15] {strider} dino, you need to change drugs.
[15:15] {Threei} with stop under .70
[15:15] {dino} if i ran a fund, i'd sell now and take the rest of year off
[15:16] {Threei} well dino... this loss of orientation in the market happens to us now anf then,
[15:16] {Threei} real question is:
[15:16] {Threei} was there any single time that we haven't got it back?
[15:16] {nemo} no
[15:17] {larisa} second is much better on RIMM:) broken downtrend. imo :) so nexxt time do not be afraid and share :) not cash, but calls!
[15:17] {nemo} it happens once a season
[15:17] {Threei} but it was the same setup at the moment larisda
[15:17] {Threei} larisa, sorry
[15:17] {dino} bizzarro world. how do i buy up 5-9 pts in 2 dats, yet getting stopped on shorts
[15:17] {Threei} cover right part of the chart in both cases
[15:17] {Threei} they are identical
[15:18] {Threei} US) House Speaker Pelosi : final healthcare bill will contain what is needed to hold insurance companies accountable
[15:18] {Threei} oh good
[15:19] {Threei} howe is this such a big mystery what to do with insurance companies
[15:19] {larisa} second time we broke downtrend. and first time we were sliding down in full strendth. but may be i see it differently
[15:19] {dino} autos, then banks, next heath, airlines, etc
[15:19] {Threei} are you looking at the right time stamp, larisa?
[15:19] {nemo} no, the unions own the auto companies, they'll leave them alone
[15:20] {Threei} 14:06
[15:20] {dino} govt owns gm w/unions
[15:20] {Threei} bottom at .71, jump to over 66,
[15:20] {dino} and gmac
[15:20] {Threei} pullback to .80
[15:20] {Threei} clean prep for double bottom
[15:21] {Threei} second one could just drop to 65 and below just as well, ruining thias second setup
[15:21] {Threei} would be exact repetition of first one
[15:22] {Threei} small lear jet has crashed near the City of Chicago in a forest reserve - CNN
[15:22] {larisa} my chart setting are different from yours, so i will not argue. Can I like one setup more than the other? :)
[15:23] {Threei} you - can
[15:23] {larisa} please?
[15:23] {larisa} ty
[15:23] {Threei} I just can't say no to you
[15:23] {larisa} ty
[15:25] {Threei} (whispering) but it's the same setup (running away)
[15:26] {larisa} if you connect tops on that selloff you will see what I mean. Again, i use tick charts, may be it is not visible on time bars
[15:26] {larisa} and i am too lazy to check :)
[15:27] {Threei} gimme a few secs
[15:28] {Threei} on my chart, 14:22 entry would be what matches your idea
[15:29] {Threei} breaking over that descending line through the tops
[15:31] {Threei} SORL, this is annoying
[15:31] {Threei} we couldn't get it to break 9.40 yesterday
[15:31] {Threei} day ended with no triggering
[15:32] {Threei} or was it .36
[15:33] {larisa} I opened 1 min. it is ugly and now i see why you are arguing with me. On tick chart it is perfect trendline from 1 pm to 14:15. and your entry was first pullback after breaking downtrend . beautiful :) done with it:)
[15:34] {Threei} actually I am arguing with you becvause I like arguing... but hey :)
[15:34] {larisa} lol
[15:44] {dino} out cnw +.27
[15:45] {larisa} gj
[15:45] {dino} thx
[15:50] {dino} pgm
[15:52] {Threei} so, is insane move by airlines done or frikin UAUA gapos ovwer 14 tomorrow and keeps going, lol
[15:53] {strider} Just gapped and sat there today. I wouldn't bet on another gap.
[15:53] {Les} spy finishing at new high for year. why not go higher?
[15:53] {Threei} sat there?
[15:54] {dino} look at cal
[15:54] {Threei} it went up a buck after the gap
[15:54] {dino} oil up, terror up, hmmm
[15:54] {strider} looking at a 5 min chart, looked like about .60 to me.
[15:54] {Threei} 12.87 intraday low
[15:55] {Threei} no kidding dino, this is one of the stragest things I;ve seen
[15:55] {strider} yeah. Did it mostly in the first 15 min.
[15:56] {strider} My point was just that it wasn't a continuous climber through the day.
[15:56] {strider} Got to where it was going early.
[15:57] {magoo} MOS reports after bell
[15:57] {strider} Don't know if that's relevant.
[15:57] {Threei} just in a sense of whether there was a setup to use or not
[15:57] {Threei} with this move, not really
[15:58] {dino} out bth +.22
[15:59] {larisa} I want clear answer if market is going to sell and when..
[15:59] {Threei} no it's not
[15:59] {strider} that seems only fair, larisa.
[15:59] {Threei} is "when" still relevantZ?
[15:59] {nemo} I don't think it sells until $ strengthens significantly and interest rates rise
[15:59] {dino} out apol .90, +.25
[15:59] {Threei} if so, then it's not going to sell tomorrow
[16:00] {nemo} No place else to put money
[16:00] {Threei} ot after tomorrow
[16:00] {larisa} sigh
[16:00] {Threei} from everything i SEE,
[16:00] {Threei} THIS MOVE IS NOT OVER YET
[16:01] {Les} ok night all
[16:01] {Threei} I am not even sure about dfollar nemo
[16:01] {strider} night, les.
[16:01] {Threei} I mean, it may strengthen (and I beliueve it will)
[16:01] {Threei} yet market won't budge
[16:01] {nemo} me neither, but there is no place else to put money right now
[16:01] {nemo} real estate...no
[16:02] {nemo} bonds...yeah right
[16:02] {magoo} vad, what move? the upward market trend u referring too?
[16:02] {Threei} yeah
[16:03] {larisa} too me market feels exhausted. Even with a rally yesterday. But it feels this way for a month already :)
[16:03] {Threei} it gives cracks, starts breaking... then just regains strength and continues charging
[16:03] {magoo} everybody and i mean everybody expects fall in february
[16:03] {Threei} that's eactly thwe point larisa
[16:03] {Threei} not even month,
[16:03] {Threei} it feels exhausted entrire fall
[16:03] {Threei} and just goes and goes
[16:03] {Threei} why Feb mags?
[16:03] {dino} things' been running this way since march 15th
[16:04] {Threei} I heard theories (silly ones to say honestly) about Jan, for various tax reasons
[16:04] {Threei} Feb is new for me
[16:04] {dino} but these last 2 days are a bit insane imo
[16:04] {magoo} some baloney statistic of a green first day in jan pulls for a green january, but then death
[16:04] {dino} 10-20% in days, beware a pullback of 5-10%
[16:04] {Threei} ah... okay... :)
[16:05] {Threei} I would be happy to get some serious selloff
[16:05] {Threei} would make trading so much easier
[16:05] {dino} well, told you my problem earlier
[16:05] {Threei} yeah
[16:05] {magoo} as long as we recognize it and dont fight the trend vad
[16:05] {Threei} we rarely do
[16:06] {magoo} the log in to your site is "trendfighter" hwe he
[16:06] {Threei} huh?
[16:06] {Threei} since when
[16:06] {magoo} go to site and log in lol
[16:07] {Threei} you lost me
[16:07] {Threei} but that's OK{ a lot of people lose me
[16:07] {Threei} and I lose them
[16:07] {Threei} I live in a Lost World
[16:07] {Threei} funny label on TV
[16:08] {Threei} awaiting pres Obama terror update

Jan 04 2010

Volume improved a bit but the market stayed locked for the most part of the day which didn't provide many trading opportunities. with a few winning trades scattered here and there, stops still prevailed.

Session Time: Mon Jan 04 00:00:00 2010

[08:10] {ese} good morning and happy new to you all
[08:10] {nemo} dude
[08:11] {strider} :)

[08:11] {ese} st
[08:11] {strider} STEC may be moving.
[08:11] {ese} ya for sure.....couldn't sleep.....couldn't wait to get back to it
[08:12] {Threei} CPHD Receives FDA Emergency Use Authorization for First 2009 H1N1 Influenza Assay for CLIA 'Moderate Complexity' Laboratories
[08:12] {Threei} LVS UBS Raised LVS to Buy from Neutral, price target: $20
[08:12] {ese} had my eye on it when it was in the 12's
[08:12] {Threei} good morning
[08:13] {ese} but didn't like the volume last month and was not sure about it....it's made anice move into 16/17
[08:16] {ese} read on the weekend that there is still 3.2 trillion dollars sitting in money market funds yet to be committed to the market
[08:20] {ese} things are as they should be then.....by the time those people decide to commit....the market is at a top and then they ....welll you figure it out
[08:23] {ese} morning vad....by the way.....
[08:23] {Threei} ese :)
[08:25] {ese} baltic dry index up for the first time in 15 sessions
[08:28] {ese} you got your eye on anything vad

[08:30] {Threei} CPHD
[08:30] {Threei} NVDA
[08:30] {Threei} NVDA Broadpoint AmTech Cuts NVDA to Sell from Hold, price target: $14
[08:31] {nemo} In "Normal" times January tends to be tech sell off time
[08:38] {ese} now why is that nemo?
[08:39] {nemo} it's been a consistent cycle, likely because so much tech today is consumer related..after Xmas, time for a respite
[08:45] {ese} gotcha....makes sense
[08:49] {ese} this is the start of how many years trading Vad ?
[08:50] {Threei} 14th
[09:02] {Threei} Las Vegas Sands Corp Goldman Sachs Reinstating coverage with a Neutral rating
[09:02] {Threei} - Believes company is in a better position, both financially (leverage down to 6.4X from 10X) and from an operational perspective ($500M in cost cuts), than it was just a few quarters ago
[09:02] {Threei} - The restart of construction in Macau and the Singapore opening provide a growth path. However, the Las Vegas market faces 13% supply growth that could weigh on room rate recovery, the Singapore ramp is likely to be volatile given the phased opening, and the company still faces increasingly challenging covenant tests at the US restricted group.
[09:05] {ese} long 15 .65 vad?
[09:05] {ese} or 15.70
[09:06] {Threei} so far .65 break... but I'd really prefer the setup to form a bit later
[09:12] {ese} vad do you already have an order of some kind in? or do you wait
[09:13] {Threei} no, just waiting for a setup to shape up
[09:13] {ese} tks

[09:13] {nemo} yeah, look at the offer at .65

[10:00] {Les} volume die off in fcx. traders awaiting news release?

[11:37] {Threei} - Feels that the Fed ending of MBS purchases could add a full point to mortgage rates and will not be helpful
[11:37] {Threei} - Fed must provide more stimulus
[11:37] {Threei} - notes that unemployment will likely rise and housing may be struggle after March
[11:38] {nemo} I'm picturing the alcoholic priest in the liquor store in that bad Keanu Reeves movie

[11:39] {Threei} - Fed must provide more stimulus
[11:39] {Threei} - Fed must provide more stimulus
[11:39] {Threei} - Fed must provide more stimulus
[11:39] {nemo} Does Krugman suggest who will buy all the new debt?

[14:20] {Threei} now, ideal scenario is holding .90 and breaking 8
[14:21] {Threei} that would put strong fioundation under the notion of trend change
[14:22] {Threei} guy bidding at .88 would do us all a favor moving to .92 now

06[14:49] * Threei kicks ICXT in the rear
[14:51] {strider} ICXT is a mule.
[14:51] {strider} Kicking it just makes it sit down on your foot.
[14:52] {Threei} lol
[14:53] {strider} no interest in this stock.
[14:54] {Les} still feels like christmas trading...
[14:55] {Threei} not at all
[14:55] {Threei} Market Internals update at 2:00pmET
[14:55] {Threei} - NYSE volume 545M shares, about 17% below its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 5 6:1.
[14:55] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 1.25B shares, about 6% below its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 3.3:1.
[14:55] {Threei} - VIX index -6.5% to just over 20.00
[14:55] {Threei} it's just a gap that ate all the amplitude of the move for the day
[14:56] {Threei} so we stay locked
[14:56] {Threei} but volume changed significasntly

[15:00] {Threei} that's bold
[15:00] {Les} that's what my friend is betting on
[15:01] {Threei} with it being involved in this endless court war, any bet is a pure gambling on the outcome of the case
[15:01] {Les} that's what i said
[15:03] {Les} he's waiting for the "final" judgement
[15:04] {Threei} why not... as long as he a) is willing to lose most of it in case of failure and b) doesn't call it investing or trading
[15:05] {Les} he is an IT consultant, and supremely sure of his world. I cannot argue otherwise to him
[15:06] {Threei} no need
[15:06] {Threei} he either guesses right and will be firever proud of his prowess,
[15:07] {fernp} SYK 52 breakout?
[15:07] {Threei} or giesses wrong and remains convinced that he was right but some evil intruder broke the rules
[15:07] {Threei} yes fern
[15:08] {Les} understood. he also denies that small time daytrading can be profitable... so what can I say?
[15:09] {Les} we'll see who is right in a few years
[15:09] {Threei} no need to say anything
[15:09] {Threei} qwhy would you want to argue
[15:10] {Threei} if someone denies that sun rises in the morning and sets down in the evening, why argue?
[15:10] {fernp} PTEN 1:1 here
[15:10] {Threei} fern, return this profit in the market, will ya
[15:11] {Threei} day trading can't be profitrable
[15:11] {Threei} and don't even think of profiting from SYK
[15:12] {fernp} who says such thing?
[15:12] {Threei} Les's friend
[15:13] {fernp} ahhh!! he is a doctor buying stock with EOD data
[15:13] {Les} I attract all sorts

[15:21] {Threei} Rambus Inc Nasdaq to cancel certain trades of RMBS below $20.73
[15:21] {Threei} - determined to cancel all trades in security Rambus Inc. (RMBS) at or below $20.73 that were executed in NASDAQ between 13:28:00 and 13:32:00 ET. This decision cannot be appealed.
[15:23] {Threei} so, let mne get this straight
[15:23] {Threei} someone sells short at 22
[15:23] {Threei} covers at 18
[15:23] {Threei} now his cover is cancelled
[15:23] {Les} so he is left long?
[15:23] {Threei} and he is stuck with short at 22 while srtock trades at 23?
[15:24] {Threei} why long
[15:24] {Threei} it's cover that is under 20.73 so it's canceled
[15:24] {Les} sorry, you're right
[15:24] {Threei} short is what he is left with
[15:24] {Les} my clumsy description
[15:25] {Les} so someone spreading false rumours to buy up cheaper?
[15:26] {Les} or scaring to get a good short trade in...
[15:27] {Threei} if that's inded what happened, he didn't benefit much if at all
[15:29] {Threei} RIMM near lows
[15:36] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .90 break

[15:44] {fernp} LAMR interesting here
[15:45] {strider} out +.12
[15:45] {nemo} thinny as Dino would say
[15:45] {dino} lol
[15:45] {dino} gj
[15:47] {Les} did my averaging down trick again, instead of covering. at least it was profitable
[15:47] {Threei} yikes
[15:48] {Threei} remember that confusion seemingly limited to terminology?
[15:48] {Les} too many errors today. some sleep me thinks may be in order...
[15:48] {Threei} cover sell, short, buy, bid, offer, support, resistance
[15:48] {Threei} it's not limited to terminology
[15:49] {Threei} it's lack of clarity in concepts
[15:50] {strider} holding STEC overnight, from pre-market at 17.15
[15:50] {Threei} all of it?
[15:51] {strider} good point
[15:52] {Threei} not delighted by today
[15:52] {nemo} Les' fault
[15:53] {Threei} nothing catastrophic, just usual day sprinckled with a few stops, but who said I must be delighted with stops
[15:53] {Les} no I wasn't delighted either, but I don't rack it up to lack of clarity...
[15:54] {strider} Something I've disscovered myself doing is a kind of 'picking and choosing'.......I do it by varying the share size without any reason other than lack of confidence in myself. It doesn't work very well.
[15:55] {Threei} no... there are criteria defining the share size
[15:55] {Threei} it's wired into trading system
[15:55] {Threei} start varying it for irrelevant reasons, you are messing up thew system
[15:55] {strider} I've been trading smaller share size on my trades than on yours, vad. when you have a not so great day, and I have a better day, I still loose.
[15:56] {Threei} stock liquidity, stop size
[15:56] {Threei} those are valid factors
[15:56] {nemo} time of day
[15:56] {strider} yep.
[15:56] {strider} time of day?
[15:57] {strider} that's just another way of picking and choosing, isn't it?
[15:57] {ilana} "lunchtime", right, nemo?
[15:57] {nemo} yep
[15:57] {nemo} also, trades where conviction isn't high
[15:57] {strider} If you don't have as much confidence in lunchtime, should you trade it at all.
[15:57] {strider} Well that's exactly what I'm talking about.
[15:57] {nemo} like when I like a trade and vad says "50/50"
[15:57] {strider} Less conviction.
[15:58] {fernp} im going to hold some LAMRs for tomorrow. nice daily for breakout players
[15:59] {Les} alright. will sleep on it. night all.
