[09:28] {nemo} mon popping
[09:28] {Threei} one downgrade and one upgrade

[09:29] {ese} widow maker
[09:29] {Les} .75 break on sqnm?
[09:29] {Threei} I'd prefer pullback, but who knows, hot thing
[09:32] {Threei} pullback is coming
[09:32] {Threei} let's see if we get 7.70 or so
[09:32] {Threei} ideally would be entry near .70 with stop under .60
[09:33] {Threei} keep half lot ready
[09:33] {Threei} will be awfully fast when bottoming
[09:33] {nemo} MAGS!
[09:34] {magoo} HEY
06[09:34] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!" banner

[09:35] {Threei} here comes last leg of pullback
[09:35] {Threei} fast players only

[09:35] {Threei} SQNM
[09:35] {nemo} sqnm

[09:36] {Threei} not yet
[09:36] {Threei} AIG btw
[09:37] {magoo} yea
[09:37] {Threei} keep half lot ready as well
[09:37] {Threei} not ready either, just ruined double bottom setup
[09:37] {Threei} well, SQNM
[09:38] {Threei} .90 break...
[09:38] {Threei} less athusiastic about it
[09:38] {Threei} would still prefer deeper pullback
[09:38] {Threei} but if holding .80 and breaks .90, valid play
[09:39] {Threei} 1:1
[09:39] {_jfjf64} ty
[09:39] {Threei} yw
[09:39] {fernp} ty Vad

[09:40] {Threei} but of course
[09:40] {magoo} some things do NOT change
[09:40] {Threei} but let's start slowly
[09:40] {dino} gj
[09:40] {magoo} watching AIG
[09:41] {Threei} was thinking of AIG .30 break, and couldn't decide
[09:41] {_jfjf64} magoo ya bring out best in vad
[09:41] {Threei} lol
[09:41] {Threei} ok, SQNM tries to turn into serious momo
[09:41] {Threei} let's try for entry un pullback under .10
[09:41] {Threei} as close to 8 as possible
[09:42] {Threei} AIG, entry around .35
[09:42] {Threei} half lot!
[09:42] {Threei} don't go xcrazy on size, these moves can be a killer
[09:43] {_jfjf64} ba
[09:44] {Threei} wow... SQNM not letting us in
[09:44] {nemo} aig has support at .45 too
[09:45] {Threei} I seriously hate to chase this kind
[09:45] {nemo} what sqnm?
[09:45] {Threei} they tend to reverse on you just when you give up on wasiting for pullback and hit buy
[09:45] {nemo} then let's find something else
[09:45] {Threei} AUG is getting there
[09:46] {Threei} General Motors Corp Reports Feb US Vehicle Sales +32% v +20%e; to 138K units

[09:46] {nemo} oops
[09:48] {Threei} half lot, about 15 cents risk
[09:48] {magoo} in .29
[09:48] {Threei} looks good for try
[09:48] {Threei} if double bottom scenario works, should be fine for .60 at least
[09:48] {dino} rino
[09:49] {Threei} stopped
[09:49] {nemo} if aig loses low look for it to bounce at .10

[12:06] {Threei} - VIX index -2% to just below 19.00
[12:07] {Threei} this phenomenon continues to amaze me
[12:07] {Threei} I don't think I've ever seen this, for such extended time
[12:07] {Threei} for months now, we have volume increasing on red days, drying up on green ones
[12:08] {Threei} yet uptrend is intact
[12:08] {dino} and tight range afternoons
[12:08] {Threei} aftrenoon tight ranges, yes...
[12:08] {Threei} but this is something that is simply to be taken into account,
[12:08] {Threei} incirporated in our strategy
[12:09] {Threei} so we don't overtrade at thiks time of the day
[12:09] {Threei} keep bets light
[12:09] {Threei} that volume pattern though, it's different
[12:09] {Threei} it goes against one of fundamental principles
[12:10] {Threei} which is no big deal if happens once in a blue moon
[12:10] {Threei} but it holds true for months
[12:11] {Threei} even without tracking day by day, look at SPY daily for instance
[12:11] {Threei} general volume-price configuration
[12:11] {Threei} you'll see what I mean

[12:13] {Threei} if anyone can come up with any sensible explanation, feel free... cause I sure have none
[12:13] {nemo} wall of worry climb
[12:14] {nemo} market shouldn't be going up, so light buying moves it up
[12:14] {Threei} any bull market does that at the beginning stages
[12:14] {Threei} but this volume pattern is never this sustainable
[12:14] {dino} random dance market
[12:14] {nemo} what was the last depression you lived through?
[12:14] {dino} buy them higher sell them lower
[12:14] {Threei} lol
[12:15] {Threei} why do I need to live through depression to know chart patterns?
[12:15] {nemo} well, go study the chart volume patterns from that time
[12:15] {nemo} last year was "we're all gonna'die"
[12:15] {Threei} and who told you I ever came out of depression meeting you in 2007 caused?
[12:15] {dino} further, i feel as tho the investor is dead. these markets move on traders, days happen in minutes
[12:16] {nemo} nano-trading
[12:16] {nemo} there's a book in there
[12:16] {Threei} you measn you see this volume pattern in depression timnes?
[12:16] {Threei} then we look at different charts, I don't see anything like this
[12:16] {nemo} I don't know...just last year was quite an exception
[12:16] {dino} drop
[12:17] {nemo} fas pullback
[12:17] {Threei} ok, I take severe umbrage in this one:
[12:17] {Threei} [12:15] {nemo} well, go study the chart volume patterns from that time
[12:17] {Threei} you think I didn't, before asking the question?
06[12:17] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large price-volume charts from 1930 to our days
[12:17] {dino} i think you are overthinking it. my gut says no investors just traders
[12:18] {Threei} it's true
[12:18] {Threei} but why is volume reversed?
[12:18] {dino} panic on any drop after '09
[12:18] {nemo} wall of worry
[12:18] {dino} brutal lesson learned, get out
[12:18] {nemo} yep
[12:19] {dino} investors would wait it out, investors are minority
[12:19] {ese} did they even have price charts back then
[12:19] {nemo} yes ese
[12:19] {nemo} all investors are gone
[12:19] {Threei} yes... they called them plates, for some reason
[12:20] {dino} shoot first on drops ask questions later
[12:20] {Threei} I guess I don't ask my question clearly
[12:20] {Threei} and it's not emopty curiosity
[12:20] {Threei} this is something we need to understand in order to read the direction
[12:21] {Threei} let me try again
[12:21] {Threei} yes, as you say, when fear overcomes greed, volume increases on red days
[12:21] {Threei} that's what such increase indicates:
[12:21] {Threei} more fear,
[12:21] {nemo} economically much fear right now
[12:21] {Threei} greed retreats
[12:22] {Threei} and volume on green days is less.
[12:22] {Threei} That's all normal.
[12:22] {Threei} What isn't normal:
[12:22] {Threei} when this pattern develops, we establish DOWNtrend
06[12:22] * nemo asks: "What is normal?"
[12:22] {Threei} not UPtrend
[12:22] {ese} seed....wha da ya think vad L maybe at .05
[12:22] {Threei} yet, having this volume pattern, we continue uptrend
[12:23] {dino} more fear than greed
[12:23] {nemo} Fear is still very high out there
[12:23] {Threei} ese, it's worth a try, but wether it works or not won't depend on technicals, rather on wheher momo players return
[12:23] {dino} economy in my area sucks, fear everywhere
[12:23] {Threei} yes
[12:24] {Threei} that's what volume idndicates
[12:24] {Threei} more fear
[12:24] {Threei} so why uptrend??
[12:24] {nemo} Lotsa' fear, but where else you gonna' put your money?
[12:24] {dino} so perhaps lower vol on up because no investors(fear), but the ones that are in sell drops fast
[12:25] {dino} right now, the cd's are getting the money but paying nothing (fear again over rides)
[12:25] {nemo} my take dino, lock in profit and begrudgingly buy upward]

[12:26] {dino} sure, back to trader market only, no investors
[12:26] {Threei} what do you mean nobody really selling?
[12:26] {Threei} where does volume on red days coming from then?
[12:26] {Threei} if it all were just short term traders, volume would be roughly equal
[12:26] {nemo} people locking in profit
[12:27] {dino} traders/sellers. investors are gone, most traders are long only types, they sell fast
[12:27] {Threei} OK, I guess my english sucks... you guys don't hear me :)

[12:35] {fernp} ok
[12:35] {gregns} okey dokey
[12:35] {dino} oh man, the meatloaf sandwich is under-rated. should make a meatloaf sub
[12:35] {Threei} if it goes from here, it's just one of those moves that I can't read
[12:36] {fernp} u can read everything :-)
[12:36] {Threei} but suppose it pulls back to .65 or so,
[12:36] {Threei} and return to .70 and breaks it, yes, that I'd see as a valid setup
[12:37] {fernp} yes understand, db scenario
[12:37] {Threei} yes, with higher low
[12:38] {Threei} as it is, it's just a move
[12:38] {dino} here's a thought on your volume question, could it be that some of the stocks that are in the indexes are above average, thus pulling everything else along
[12:38] {Threei} not everything moves in patterns, some moves are just that
[12:38] {Threei} hah
[12:38] {nemo} also have etfs...wonder what affect they're having
[12:38] {nemo} effect
[12:38] {Threei} that's interesting suggestion dino
[12:38] {nemo} influence
[12:38] {Threei} and you know what
[12:39] {Threei} pattern is drastically different for NYSE and NASDAQ
[12:39] {dino} other thing is some have been dropped from index (c, aig, etc)
[12:39] {Threei} that would influence volume now vs volume before they were dropped
[12:39] {Threei} not day by day now
[12:40] {Threei} but your first suggestion is very likely true
[12:40] {Threei} NYSE and NASDAQ represent different sectors,
[12:40] {Threei} and volume on NASDAQ was less impacted by this strange pattern
[12:40] {dino} the meatloaf trigger the thought
[12:40] {nemo} wow
[12:41] {Threei} NYSE with its heavy represenation of financials
[12:41] {Threei} could be

[12:41] {Threei} The Power of Meatloaf Thinking
06[12:41] * nemo slaps Les around a bit with a large lead pipe
[12:41] {dino} good title\
[12:42] {Threei} well, the implication is:
[12:42] {Threei} without breaking things by sectors and possibly even deeper, isolation of certain stocks with unusual heavy trading,
[12:42] {Threei} we can't rely on index volume
[12:43] {Threei} and I am too lazy to do those deep analysis
[12:43] {nemo} interferes with your drinking time
[12:44] {Threei} and with my non-thinking principles
[12:44] {Threei} (I prefer to call inabaility a principle, ya know)
[12:45] {Threei} so there we go: index movement is dicated by price changes, not volume-weighted,
[12:45] {Threei} most stocks move in unison and define index direction,
[12:45] {Threei} but some, where the fear is concentrated the most, have unusual big volume on down days
[12:45] {Threei} skewing the volume pattern.
[12:46] {dino} glad i could be of assistance
[12:46] {Threei} totally

[14:06] {nemo} no..for missing fcx at 77.55 I was looking at it when volume came in, said "nah, that's too obvious."
[14:06] {nemo} mon
[14:06] {nemo} volume coming in break of 72 interesting
[14:09] {Les} Nemo, you once mentioned white numbers on T&S is people trying to get out
[14:09] {Les} nice call on mon by the way
[14:09] {nemo} ty
[14:09] {nemo} can be white numbers are market orders
[14:09] {Les} what does this colour coding on T&S mean?
[14:09] {nemo} market orders
[14:09] {Les} green is buy?
[14:10] {Les} Red is sell?
[14:10] {nemo} green means somebody bought the offer
[14:10] {Les} what is yellow?
[14:10] {nemo} Red means somebody selling sold to the bid
[14:10] {nemo} yellow in your case is likely market orders
[14:10] {dino} ntri stop
[14:10] {larisa} yellow means too much carrot
[14:10] {Les} out MON +.20
[14:10] {Threei} msrket orders?
[14:11] {Threei} they can't be color coded

[14:13] {Les}
[14:13] {dino} trying to make speculation illegal, crazy times
[14:13] {Les} Vad, can you help me decode this T&S chart please?
[14:14] {Les} yellow price means unchanged
[14:14] {Les} yellow vol. means unchanged
[14:15] {nemo} no it means in between bid and offer...likely market order
[14:15] {Threei} that's what your broker said?
[14:15] {Les} no just guessing
[14:15] {nemo} wtf
[14:15] {Threei} ok, you need their explanation of color agenda
[14:15] {Les} its broker specific is it?
[14:15] {Threei} I've no idea what they label as yellow
[14:15] {nemo} green means somebody bought the stock paying the offer]
[14:15] {Threei} for Laser it's simple
[14:16] {Threei} green - trade at offer price
[14:16] {nemo} red likely means somebody sold the stock for the bid
[14:16] {Threei} red - trade at bid price
[14:16] {Threei} white - inbetween
[14:16] {nemo} yellow is likely market/inbetween
[14:16] {Threei} why market?
[14:16] {Threei} inbetween - probably
[14:16] {Threei} but why it needs to be market?
[14:17] {Les} ok. will try to track it down. thanks anyway
[14:17] {nemo} doesn't need to be, but market orders will usually be the best available price
[14:17] {Threei} so will limit
[14:17] {nemo} good point
[14:17] {Threei} send at the offer, if there is hidden offer lower you'll get it
[14:18] {Threei} make this disctinction:
[14:18] {Threei} there is an order that hits someone else's one,
[14:18] {Threei} this is MARKETABLE order
[14:18] {Threei} don't confuse with market
[14:19] {Threei} marketable order can hit hidden one inbetweem
[14:19] {Threei} now, if you try to put in bid or offer at the current perice or beyond, but not between existing ones,
[14:19] {Threei} it's pyre limit
[14:19] {Threei} pure
[14:19] {Threei} and there will be no improvement
[14:20] {Threei} you'll get a fill only when someone hits you
[14:20] {Threei} what you'll get though with Laser is ECN rebate

[14:28] {Threei} get your good trades early, then sit it out
[14:28] {Threei} wait for something big to happen
[14:28] {nemo} reminds of a woman I dated...spent a year with her one week

[14:29] {Threei} if not, sit and yawn
[14:29] {nemo} great...made me yawn
[14:30] {Threei} last week was tougher for me because period of morning activity was shorter
[14:30] {Threei} if day started with stop or two, it would take whole day to get out of it
[14:30] {Threei} this week so far at least, morning is a little longer
[14:31] {Threei} so there is more time to right things

Feb 23 2010

Day started with nice TM short for 40 cents profit (which was in retrospect worth much more, dropped over a dollar). Then a few smallish stops ate into profit, leaving day closer to flat. Narrow range for the whole day starting from 10:30 or so hasn't left much room for plays.

Session Time: Tue Feb 23 00:00:00 2010

[08:22] {Threei} - Follow up: Banking committee members reportedly are evaluating removing ban on prop trading from the Volcker rule - unconfirmed report
[08:22] {Threei} **Also reminder: On 2/11 (US) Senators Dodd (D) and Corker (R) have agree to shelve Consumer Protection Agency legislation. The two Senators were working together on a bipartisan financial reform bill. CNBC now reports that part of that agreement was to shelve the CPA portion of the bill and address it after the rest of the bipartisan bill is crafted.
[08:22] {Threei} CNBC reporters speculate that this strategy is meant to attract moderate Republicans to vote for the reform bill.
