[14:42] {Threei} if I remember correct

[14:58] {nemo} yeah unemployment

[15:44] {nemo} piss off jf
[15:45] {Threei} Congressional Budget Office (CBO): Obama proposed budget would incur $9.76T in deficits and publicly held debt would grow to 90% of GDP by 2020
[15:45] {Threei} - revises 2010 budget deficit to $1.5T from $1.3T on 1/26; 2011 budget deficit revised to $1.3T from $980B forecasted on 1/26
[15:45] {Threei} - deficit under the Presidents proposals would fall to about 4% of GDP by 2014 but would rise steadily thereafter
[15:45] {dino} ty jf
[15:45] {Threei} - cumulative deficit over the 2011-2020 period would equal $9.8T (5.2% of GDP), $3.8T more than the cumulative deficit projected in the baseline. Of that difference, roughly $3.0T stems directly from proposed changes in policy and another $0.8T results from additional interest on the public debt.
[15:45] {Threei} - largest budgetary impact would stem from the Presidents proposals to index the alternative minimum tax (AMT) for inflation and to extend various tax provisions contained in the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 (EGTRRA) and the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 (JGTRRA). Over the next 10 years, those policies would reduce revenues and boost outlays for refundable tax credits by a total of $3.0T

Mar 04 2010

"Official" calls were slightly in black, as the day started with two stops, and was saved later by bigger VXX win and some more scalps. But the real flavor of the day was of course TIVO, with monstrous move that provided scalpers with a lot of opportunities on both sides.

Session Time: Thu Mar 04 00:00:00 2010

[09:06] {Threei} and with temporary insanity
[09:06] {Threei} sure, but HST is not direct tax increase for govt - it goes hand in hand with tax relief for big business

[11:11] {Threei} TIVO US Appeals court rules for TIVO (14.10, +3.89, 38.10%) (related DISH )
[11:12] {dino} dish win rumors
[11:12] {Threei} Rambus Inc Strength attributed to chatter of a positive ruling from US Patent office in case against NVDA
[11:12] {Threei} - hearing patent office rules on three patents that an ITC judge found were violated: patent office rules that one patent claim is valid, one invalid, and a third claim is partially valid.
[11:12] {Threei} not rumors dino
[11:12] {Threei} look up
[11:12] {dino} i see
[11:12] {Threei} - Following the decision on the appeal, TiVo moved the district court to find EchoStar in contempt of the courts permanent injunction. After conducting a series of hearings on TiVos motion, the district court ruled that EchoStar was in contempt of its earlier order. The district court rejected EchoStars argument that it had redesigned its infringing products so that they were more than colorably different from the adjudged infringing devices.

[11:48] {Threei} We are pleased that the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit fully affirmed the district court's finding of contempt against EchoStar, including both the disablement and infringement provisions. Additionally, this ruling paves the way for TiVo to receive the approximately $300M in damages and contempt sanctions awarded to us for EchoStar's continued infringement through July 1, 2009. We will also seek further damages and contempt sanctions for the period of continued infringement thereafter. We will continue our efforts to protect our intellectual property from further infringement."

[12:14] {Threei} DISH Reportedly plans to work on a work around for TIVO patent issue (20.44, -1.27, -5.85%) (related TIVO )
[12:16] {dino} imagine they already started that
[12:16] {dino} fsys sm l .49
[12:23] {dino} dish l .50
[12:26] {dino} i froze that
[12:31] {Threei} should be good for 20 cents at least, IMO
[12:31] {Threei} TIVO Price Target raised to $27 from $13 at Lazard, maintains Buy rating (timing uncertain) (15.29, +5.08, 49.76%)
[12:31] {Threei} wow
[12:31] {Threei} impressive target
[12:32] {RonS} Lazard positioning to get TIVO to sell out...IMO
[12:34] {Les} AWIAV?
[12:35] {dino} turkey sandwich
[12:35] {Threei} no, but DISH should be long on .50 break if holding .40
[12:35] {Threei} and TIVO is likely candidate for eod run
[12:37] {Les} I thought it was baloney that got your brain working dino?
[12:37] {Les} or is it meatloaf?
[12:37] {dino} meatloaf
[12:38] {RonS} TIVO options vol shows 30K Mar 17.50 vs 3500 OI
[12:38] {Les} well you're hardly helping out with turkey aren't you....
[12:38] {dino} i know, i'll try harder
[12:39] {dino} dish stopped -.13
[12:39] {Les} I'm still in LPX Ron, but boy is it narrow. better give me some good loving soon
[12:39] {RonS} I just pushed it for you...
[12:40] {Les} now that's some loving
[12:42] {Threei} TIVO next round starts
[12:43] {Threei} IMO, it will revisit 16 at least
[12:43] {Threei} and very likely make new highs
[12:45] {dino} sxci
[12:46] {dino} snda sm l .75
[12:46] {Threei} that was quick
[12:46] {Threei} anyone did TIVO?
[12:47] {fernp} not here
[12:47] {Les} only had time to think about it
[12:47] {Threei} hit it from .44 to .95
[12:47] {Threei} 1K
[12:47] {Les} beers are on you tonight
[12:47] {RonS} wtg Vad :)
[12:48] {Threei} y
[12:48] {dino} fsys stopped
[12:48] {Threei} too bad this kind of things is almost impossible to call precisely
[12:48] {Les} Dino, this is my tribute song to SNDA:
[12:48] {Les}
[12:48] {Threei} kind of : here is idea of the play, see if you can find your way to execute it,
[12:48] {Threei} and if you have to ask - stay away
[12:49] {Threei} magoo and jf love this kind
[12:49] {dino} lol
[12:49] {Les} given the momentum Vad I should have gone for it
06[12:50] * Threei slaps jfjf64 around a bit with a large magoo
06[12:50] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large jfjf64
06[12:50] * Threei slaps Les around a bit with a large magoo and jf
[12:58] {Threei} did I slap whole room into coma?
[12:59] {Les} ok Vad, so how should we play TIVO if it gets to 16 again? We touch it?
[12:59] {Threei} it's not a technical play Les
[12:59] {Les} ok. If I see a break...
[12:59] {Threei} it's not being governed by prices, levels, suports. resistances
[12:59] {Threei} it's a momo
[12:59] {Threei} momo needs a feel
[13:00] {Threei} feel develops by months and years of observation
[13:00] {Threei} I can say all I want "watch for the insane T&S rate"
[13:00] {Threei} but until you see it a few times, watch how price reacts,
[13:01] {Threei} and start getting a feel for this enormous pressure through the T&S
[13:01] {Threei} my words will remain an emtpy sound
[13:01] {nemo} if Vad talks and nobody is there to hear it...
[13:02] {Threei} he will merrily shut up
[13:02] {Threei} accept that some things cannot be put in exact words, all I can do is to point you in the right direction where to look
[13:03] {Threei} but you need to look and see for yourself to start recognizing it
[13:04] {Threei} watch Level 2 and T&S together
[13:05] {Les} feel like I'm in the matrix
[13:05] {Threei} 58% Support Postal Services Plan To End Saturday Delivery
[13:05] {Threei} the rest 42% just can't live till Monday?
[13:07] {nemo} going tibetan monk on us vad? :)
[13:09] {dino} the post office delivers on saturdays?
[13:09] {Les} just not you dino. Disgruntled postal worker thing
[13:10] {dino} ahh, or maybe i don't go to office on saturdays
[13:10] {magoo} ill be back in hour or so
[13:11] {dino} don't let the door hit you on the way out
[13:13] {nemo} doesn't daylight savings time start soon?
[13:13] {Threei} yes
[13:13] {dino} when is the obama ad(sp)inistration coming on tv
[13:14] {nemo} wtf

[13:14] {nemo} ahhhty
[13:15] {dino} sxci continues
[13:17] {Threei} TIVO too
[13:17] {dino} yeah
[13:23] {Threei} among many other things, in its last throne speech Canadian govt said they want to change some language in hymn
[13:24] {Threei} there are responses t it indicating that it's a red herring,
[13:24] {Threei} designed to distract people from some other issues
[13:24] {Threei} so, the number of these responses is so huge
[13:24] {Threei} that if it's indeed an itention - it works
[13:25] {Threei} people are quite distracted discussing the distraction
[13:25] {Les} ANF
[13:27] {dino} sm s sxci .73
[13:27] {dino} wide
[13:28] {dino} put call over 100%
[13:32] {dino} sxci bstop is hod
[13:33] {Threei} speaking of put/call
[13:33] {nemo} oh oh
[13:33] {Threei} do you guys know that IntelliScan has an alert for put/call ratio 5 to 1 and 10 to 1 (or call/put of course)?
[13:34] {nemo} N/A
[13:35] {Threei} FHN for instance

[13:39] {Les} spls 23 break?
[13:41] {RonS} RIMM short on break of day's lows Vad?
[13:42] {Threei} I think so
[13:42] {Threei} needs market help
[13:42] {Threei} but that's what we had last days, so looks valid
[13:43] {strider} HIG, quasimodo
[13:44] {nemo} Intelliscan N/A for me Vad
[13:44] {Threei} huh?
[13:45] {nemo} scoliosis strider
[13:45] {Threei} it's available for anyone who cares to sign up for it
[13:45] {nemo} I don't have it, so therefore asking me if I knew is an N/A
[13:45] {nemo} I realize...I'm not worried
06[13:45] * strider slaps nemo around a bit with a large thing
[13:46] {nemo} oy vay
[13:46] {dino} scok at it again
[13:46] {Threei} if dismiss TIVO longs which were not called explicitly, and leave in one TIVO short for 13 cents, then between two morning stops and VXX and TIVO wins, the day is in black calls wise - not by much but above the burger flipper pay grade
[13:47] {dino} 6 to 36 in 20 days
[13:47] {dino} morning was tough imo vad
[13:48] {Threei} but magoo who managed to slip in for those two stops is the luckiest son of a gun in the room today
[13:48] {dino} tivo s .99
[13:48] {nemo} oh oh
[13:48] {Les} been there Dino, got my butt kicked
[13:48] {Les} good luck
[13:48] {Threei} without that TIVO short, VXX covered stops and left us about even
[13:49] {strider} I'll be a little greener if HIG would go back to the barn.
[13:49] {dino} bstop is .11
[13:50] {Les} Where's Ron so I can kick his butt for putting LPX into my head :)
[13:50] {Les} actually its my own greed.
[13:50] {nemo} we know
[13:50] {Les} LPX did offer up near 1:2
[13:50] {RonS} Dollar up, commodites down, treasuries up...yet the market hangs in. Something has to give...
[13:51] {nemo}'re in a room with traders, which is LIke being at an AA meaning and saying you don't have a drinking problem
[13:51] {RonS} nemo, ain't it the truth...
[13:51] {nemo} Does anybody know the difference between a "Drunk" and an "alcoholic"?
[13:51] {nemo} you still in Dino?
[13:51] {dino} stoppedhmin drop
[13:51] {strider} With vad, it's NEVER like being at an AA meeting.
[13:52] {nemo} Alcoholics go to meetings
[13:52] {strider} Not with a bottle in their hands

[13:52] {dino} see above 13:49
[13:52] {strider} you were long nemo?

[13:52] {nemo} watching that one
[13:52] {nemo} just been trading fas and fcx and a little rim today
[13:53] {strider} no, dino said he was long nemo. I was asking him whether he was trading nemo.
[13:54] {strider} We need a punctuation nazi in here.
[13:54] {nemo} dino shorted
[13:54] {strider} never mind.
[13:54] {dino} i shorted s=short, ironically l=long
[13:55] {dino} :)
[13:55] {strider} larisa, straighten these guys out, will you?
[13:55] {larisa} no, too busy looking for Vegas vacation :)
[13:56] {strider} aw, jeez.
[13:56] {Les} I've had my booze quota for the night, so I'm as straight as the chart on SXCI
[13:57] {dino} had a couple shock tops last night, first beers in a week
[13:59] {dino} vad, you'll appreciate this. my sister's pub is located one mile from my house, hence the shock tops
[14:00] {nemo} a woman with a pub.....:)
[14:00] {dino} building a good business, packed for happy hour last night
[14:00] {nemo} that's great
[14:00] {dino} wife says we may have to move
[14:01] {nemo} you spending too much time there?
[14:01] {dino} i think that was her point
[14:01] {nemo} thus my assumption
[14:01] {strider} Or is she wanting to move4 closer, so you don't get lost on the way home?
[14:01] {dino} lol
[14:02] {strider} A mile is a long way to crawl.
[14:02] {RonS} kill two birds with one stone; move into the pub...
[14:02] {nemo} good sobering up distance
[14:03] {dino} indeed
[14:03] {Les} hold it Dino, your trading office is in your house or somewhere else?
[14:03] {nemo} In high school, had a friend of mine pass out in a snowbank in front of his house, cops found him and through him in the tank for the night
[14:03] {nemo} nosy, aren't you Les
[14:04] {Les} got me there
[14:04] {nemo} I'm much worse when I've been drinking

[14:06] {RonS} who ever came up with that commando stuff...classic.
[14:07] {Les} 3 miles is ...5 km's? ok. too far to walk
[14:07] {strider} I can't stop laughing.

[14:19] {Les} no money
[14:19] {Les} absolutely no hurry to return to real money
[14:19] {Threei} good... cause why would you use real money for learning new type of movement
[14:20] {Les} I'd happily go to money if I had discipline to only trade your setups
[14:20] {Les} but I don't
[14:21] {RonS} stolen quote: "market has the feel of waling through a haunted house"
[14:21] {RonS} s/b walking

[14:22] {Threei} umm... and traders feel like they walk on eggs

[14:27] {Les} haha
[14:27] {RonS} One of the many things that scare me to death is Jesse Livermore's description of years on end where there was no money to be made on either side. This last occurred in the '70's...
[14:27] {nemo} put her on a spit
[14:28] {Les} yes I've thought about that Ron

[14:43] {Threei} he was talking about much bigger movements Ron
[14:43] {Threei} our scale practivally always has something
[14:44] {nemo} the cost structures were much different then also
[14:44] {jfjf64} ivan agrees vad

[14:45] {RonS} ...agreed Vad, plus the politicians think it their birthright to jerk things around.
[14:46] {nemo} don't recognize it, must have been under the influence
[14:46] {Les} another hint:
[14:46] {Les} "I'd buy that for a dollar"
[14:46] {dino} thing too ron, there's always a bull market somewhere, and w/internet you find it fast. back to the old buy and hold vs new instant trades
[14:46] {nemo} gonna' have to work through the gunk
[14:47] {nemo}, not that movie
[14:47] {Les} dead or alive, you're coming with me
[14:47] {Threei} [14:46] {dino} thing too ron, there's always a bull market somewhere, --- just look at TIVO for illustration, while market did almost nothing
[14:47] {nemo} Paul Weller?
[14:48] {dino} todays days are like four days of the 80s 90s. used to be an up day was an up day, now up/down/up/down, etc

[14:49] {nemo} yeah...that guy
[14:49] {Les} really? I googled a musician
[14:49] {dino} talk to older guys, they ask what i look for on day trade, i say 5%+ daily move fast, they say it rarely happens. you know my response
[14:49] {dino} 15% are common
[14:50] {dino} blows their monds
[14:50] {dino} minds too
[14:50] {Threei} must not be pretty
[14:50] {Threei} minds, yeah
[14:50] {Threei} but old guys with blown monds...
[14:50] {nemo} tempting...
[14:51] {dino} pull up your scanner top tens, have 16 today
[14:51] {dino} right now, more of course from earlier
[14:51] {Les} I was reading of someone at Bill Cara's blog dino
[14:52] {Les} who called them capitulation plays, which of course they are
[14:52] {Les} didn't realise what he was doing
[14:52] {Les} until I learnt it from you
[14:52] {dino} don't know him, but yes capits and euphoria
[14:52] {Threei} dino does it seriously differently
[14:52] {Les} how?
[14:52] {Threei} look through that guy's alerts,
[14:53] {Threei} you'll see that in many cases he gets interested in new lows, far from extreme selloffs
[14:53] {Threei} dino wants mind-boggling extreme
[14:54] {dino} the heart wants what it wants
[14:54] {dino} scok goes to 46 to 41 back to 46
[14:55] {dino} 50 strike probably in play
[14:55] {dino} too risky tho
[14:57] {fernp} Good evening everybody. See you all tomorrow

[15:02] {Threei} take care nemo
[15:10] {dino} cya nemo
[15:10] {Threei} TD CEO: Housing market in Canada is 'buoyant'; global economy to stay fragile in 2010 (67.74, +1.54, 2.33%)
[15:10] {Threei} buoyant is right
[15:10] {Threei} multiple offers, biddig wars
[15:11] {dino} nice
[15:12] {Threei} over 3 years since I bought my house in Victoria it went up 25% by the most modest estimations - and these 3 years included a year and half of retreat while everyone felt concrned about crisis
[15:13] {dino} lucky
[15:13] {Les} not bad. 30% here but probably dropped off a few points now
[15:14] {Threei} considering that I bought it after, let's call it considerable runup
[15:14] {Les} but not giving this place up. demographics around Lake Geneva suck. less and less land every year
[15:15] {Threei} and considering that this is second most expensive area in Canada
[15:15] {RonS} Victoria is a great place. Spent two very memorable vacations there. Anyone who has not been, should go. And on a sunny day, the Sound and Channel islands are pure magic.

Mar 03 2010

Narrow range day again, so trades were few and far between, but still - 4 trades, 3 wins, single stop was just 8 cents. The best trade was early WFC long

Session Time: Wed Mar 03 00:00:00 2010
[07:52] {Threei} (GR) Greece formally announces austerity measures of 4.8B (2% of GDP) - draft bill
[07:52] {Threei} - To increase VAT tax by 2% to 21%; will add 1.2B in revenues
[07:52] {Threei} - To raise 1B from a one-time company tax by end of 2010
[07:52] {Threei} - To raise duty on alcohol by 20%
[07:52] {Threei} - To cut public sectort sallary supplements by 12% v 10% prior
[07:52] {Threei} - To cut public sector bonus during three holiday periods (Christmas, easter and summer)
[07:52] {Threei} - To impose luxury tax on cars, yachts, etc
[07:52] {Threei} - To raise excise on fuel by 0.03-0.08/liter
[07:52] {Threei} - To freeze increases for pensions in 2010 (no cuts either)
[07:52] {Threei} - Gov't spokesperson: To submit new tax law to parliament in the near future
[08:00] {strider} 8 measures there. Only 3 of them are reductions in spending. The other 5 are tax increases. And they call this an austerity package.
[08:00] {Threei} road down is tough...
[08:00] {Threei} MDVN, mama mia
[08:00] {Threei} MDVN Phase III studies of Dimebon (latrepirdine) alzheimers program missed co-primary and secondary endpoints
[08:02] {strider} CC at 8:30
[08:02] {Threei} kind of things that remind me why I am not an inwestor
[08:03] {strider} pharmas sure aren't the place to try to invest.
[08:04] {strider} MDVN trading was halted awhile at 7:30. What good does that do?
[08:04] {Threei} .36 - .80 scalp
[08:04] {strider} It still went to the crapper.
[08:05] {Threei} well... in their mind, halt before news is disseminated makes sure everyone gets news at the same time
[08:05] {strider} I guess that could happen.
[08:05] {Threei} the chain from FDA announce,ent to news wire can have leaks
[08:06] {strider} No, vad, say it isn't true.
[08:06] {Threei} :)
[08:06] {strider} you mean some are more equal than others?
[08:08] {Threei} horrible thought isn't it
[08:12] {Threei} GR) Reportedly Germany will not offer aid to Greece during Merkel's meeting on Friday, March 5 2010
[08:12] {Threei} - Meeting will only discuss current state of events
[08:12] {Threei} - Greece must implement austerity plans; confident that plan will stabilze the EUR.
[08:16] {Threei} US) FEB ADP EMPLOYMENT CHANGE: -20K V -20KE
[08:16] {Threei} - Prior revised from -22K to -60K
[08:42] {Threei} (US) Fed's Fisher: USD to remain reserve currency for some period of time; investor interest in USD forces discipline -Q&A at CFR
[08:42] {Threei} - Echoes that Fed should prevent asset bubbles
[08:42] {Threei} - Fed in the early 2000's held rates too low for too long
[08:42] {Threei} - Exit policy will be needed when monetary supply velocity increases (We note that that velocity of money has been falling since the end of 2005)
[08:42] {nemo} so we'll be the "reserve" toilet paper
[08:54] {Threei} (EU) Reportedly EU may hold Phase 3 Co2 auctions as early as 2011 (related CARBX )
[08:54] {Threei} why, just do it now
[08:54] {Threei} when you are on suicide mission, why not do it quickly

[09:16] {Threei} US) Fed's Rosengren: There is a risk current low rates could fuel future bubbles
[09:16] {Threei} - Fed needs broad oversight to monitor risk
[09:17] {Threei} at least they did learn something from the housing debacle

[11:08] {Les} qid b/d?
[11:08] {Threei} thatwould be a bet on market breakout
[11:10] {Threei} we are at the time of the day when breakouts cease to work for months already
[11:10] {Les} q pivot support .78. if it bounces off that and pushes upwards - yeh
[11:10] {Threei} I prefer to go with trend until it changes
[11:10] {Threei} and trend is - no, no breakout plays at this time of the day
[11:10] {Threei} (GR) Moody's: Austerity measures in Greece bring credibility to fiscal changes
[11:10] {Threei} ** Note that Greece's sovereign debt carries an A2 rating at Moodys, two notches above the equivalent ratings at Fitch and S&P (BBB+). If Moody's were to recalibrate its rating in line with its peers it would render Greece's sovereign debt ineligible for ECB repo operations when collateral criteria reverts to the normal minimum thresholds (A3/A- or above) at the end of 2010
[11:11] {dino} all is well in the world again
[11:11] {Threei} so, moody assigns ratings in order to allow or ban certain operations - not depending on real state of affairs?
[11:12] {Threei} until reality becomes glaringly obvious
[11:12] {dino} on kickbacks too
[11:13] {Threei} ok, whatever you sarcastic types say, my typing is at least back to its usual self - from the rock bottom it hit when I changed keyboard

[11:15] {Threei} my flaming oath is, that was somewhat different size and feel of keys that made me hit two keys at the same time, or miss the right ones
[11:15] {jfjf64} never get rid of good thing
[11:15] {RonS} ...a poll came out and said the average Greek spends $3k/yr on bribes

[11:16] {gregns} ty
[11:16] {dino} yet they all retire at 55, while germans have to support them retire at 65
[11:16] {Threei} let it consolidate for a while, then break .20
[11:17] {dino} visn would like to see 4.80s hit for bounce
[11:18] {Les} 67 in switzerland now. and govt wants to cut back interest guaranteed on 401k savings
[11:18] {dino} going to be 70 here soon, you watch

[12:09] {nemo} you mean vwap?
[12:10] {Les} crap sorry was looking at GS
[12:10] {Threei} look at this divergence again:

[12:13] {Threei} coud be, it's just another manifestation of these strange volume phenomena
[12:13] {Threei} we mostly talked about volume discrepancy between red and green days yesterday
[12:14] {Threei} such huge enormity in volume change direction between NYSE and NASDAQ is something else
[12:15] {Threei} NYSE volume about 18% below its three-month average, NASDAQ volume about 27% above its three-month avera
[12:15] {dino} 'i feel it is the same reason, financials vs tech heavy
[12:15] {Threei} probably
[12:15] {Threei} must be connected

[13:57] {Threei} hmm

[13:57] {Threei} 1.50 is interesting zone to break on daily
[13:57] {dino} and if you eat less you do too
[13:57] {Threei} - Clinical Data Presented Today at the American Heart Association Meeting by Stanford Researchers Show Statistically Significant Improvements in Weight Loss and Metabolic Parameters when Diets are Compatible with an Individual's Genotype
[13:57] {Threei} - Individuals on genotype-appropriate diets lost 5.3 percent of body weight compared to individuals on diets not matched to their genotype, who experienced only 2.3 percent weight loss (p=0.005);
[13:57] {Threei} The weight loss differences were even stronger when considering the individuals who were trying to follow the lowest carbohydrate (Atkins) and the lowest fat (Ornish) diets: 6.8% weight loss for those whose genotype matched the diet they were following vs. 1.4% for those not matched to their genotype (p=0.03);
[13:57] {Threei} The statistical significance of the findings increased when taking into account the actual diet habits reported by study participants (rather than just the specific diet they were asked to follow);
[13:57] {Threei} Improvements in clinical measures related to weight loss (e.g., blood triglyceride levels) paralleled the weight loss differences
