Market Week Wrap-up

TradeTheNews.com Weekly Market Update: Springtime for the Nasdaq
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 16:29 PM EST

The March quarter earnings season hit its stride this week, and just about half of the S&P500 components have released quarterly results. Global indices remain at or near all-time highs: in Asia, a PBoC RRR cut helped neutralize fears of a Chinese selloff after last Friday's regulatory crackdown (although there was another round of similar fears regulators would be tightening the screws), while in the US a few rounds of strong earnings propelled the Nasdaq above its March 2000 all-time closing high and kept the S&P near its March all-time highs. In Europe, Greece missed another deadline to present its European partners with reforms to unlock funding, but equity and bond markets seem to be reacting much less severely to the story. Leading manufacturing indicators in Asia showed a difficult start for Q2, as advance PMIs for China and Japan saw significant deterioration. Beyond the unending Greek drama, Europe was looking slightly better, with a 10-month high in the Germany April IFO survey and another month of expansion in the preliminary Eurozone manufacturing PMI data. For the week, the DJIA added 1.4%, the S&P500 rose 1.7% and the Nasdaq surged 3.2%.

There was next to no progress made in resolving the Greek crisis at Friday's Eurogroup meeting and yet another deadline for Athens to unveil its reform proposals was missed. With Europe's patience running very thin, there was talk the ECB was mulling a plan to cut off the Greek financial system from ELA support and ECB President Draghi said the council would examine the issue at a May 6th meeting. In public statements, Greek and European officials continued to talk about the need to reach a deal and Greece made a few concessions, but press reports suggested talks were very heated and Greece's creditors were considering a "final ultimatum" for Greece, with no funds released short of a comprehensive deal. The next big payment faced by Athens is a €1.4 billion bill redemption on May 8th. EUR/USD tested lows around 1.0660 on Tuesday and Thursday then rose to its highs of the week at 1.0900 on Friday.

The March home sales reports were mixed. March US existing home sales bounced higher, improving on the flattish February numbers that had been impacted by the harsh winter weather. Sales of previously owned homes climbed to the highest level since September 2013, up 13.5% y/y. Conversely, March new home sales disappointed with a 10% decline from February's relatively good level. Analysts highlighted that both reports are highly erratic and subject to big revisions. Two major homebuilders also reported contrasting quarterly results this week. DR Horton met expectations in its second quarter and offered slightly improved FY guidance, with orders up ~30% y/y. Pulte Homes widely missed earnings and revenue targets. Pulte's performance was weighed down with construction delays, which impeded closings.

In big tech, Microsoft and Amazon saw impressive gains in cloud computing revenue. Amazon's quarterly revenue rose 12% and its quarterly loss was slightly smaller than expected. Investors were happy to see the firm break out AWS metrics for the first time: AWS had revenue of $1.5 billion in the quarter, with a run rate of $5 billion a year and profits of $265 million. Microsoft's results showed CEO Nadella's turnaround well under way, with mobile hardware and cloud services revenue up sharply even as legacy licensing and PC revenue continued to decline. IBM saw its 12th straight quarter of revenue contraction, exacerbated by lower hardware sales and the strength of the dollar

Facebook's results were very good across the board, with advertising revenue up 46% y/y and user metrics up double digits. The social network joined the chorus of firms complaining about the effects of the strong dollar, saying forex headwinds would be even greater in Q2 than the 7% crimp in Q1. Google's revenue and paid clicks rose slightly less than expected, although costs were lower. Analysts had been criticizing the firm for swelling expenses over recent quarters.

Industrial names showed stress from the strength of the dollar and overseas economic weakness. Caterpillar crushed earnings expectations, however the firm warned sales and profit in each of the remaining three quarters of 2015 would be lower than the first quarter. General Motors meanwhile widely missed on earnings and revenue, with significant losses in key overseas markets. Lockheed and United Technologies both missed on revenue, although Lockheed also slightly increased its FY guidance. Boeing's revenue missed and the backlog shrank.

Consumer names Pepsi and Procter & Gamble saw flat profits and declining revenues; PG's revenue fell for the fifth quarter in a row. McDonalds disclosed grim first-quarter results: revenue declined 11% y/y and guest traffic was down in all major segments. Shares rose post-earnings after the firm said it would disclose a major turnaround plan soon and said it closed another 220 locations worldwide in the quarter. YUM! Brands saw lower profits and continuing drag in China, but tweaked its FY outlook slightly higher. Coke had a solid quarterly report. Airlines United Continental and Southwest reported very good results, citing lower fuel prices and growing demand.

Dow Chemical saw its earnings bulked up by asset sales, even as its revenue declined 14% y/y. Competitor 3M missed earnings expectations and cut its FY guidance. Both names warned FX negative impacts on sales would be substantial for the full year. Steel firms Nucor and Reliance Steel disclosed very strong first quarter results, with both companies widely beating earnings expectations. Executives from the two firms cited improving industry conditions, although they also warned pricing remains under pressure.

Comcast officially abandoned its $45 billion deal to acquire Time Warner Cable. The announcement does not come as much of a surprise, as the consensus emerged that after the FCC's net neutrality gambit the deal was next to impossible. The FCC was gearing up for hearings on the merger and press reports out this week suggested that DOJ lawyers were close to a decision to recommend blocking the merger. There is no breakup fee for either firm for walking away from the deal. Charter Communications (which is controlled by Liberty Media Corp) is widely understood to be interested in making a bid for Time Warner now that Comcast is out of the way, but reports indicate that TWC would demand a higher price than the $159/share that Comcast offered.

After weeks of rumors, Teva launched a $40.1 billion offer for rival Mylan. The cash-and-stock bid is valued at $82/share, a 48.3% premium compared to Mylan's stock price on March 10, the last trading before speculation of a link-up between the two companies. The contest won't likely be a friendly one: just last week, Mylan said a merger with Teva would be unlikely to win antitrust approval because of "significant overlap" among the two businesses. Mylan's first line of defense was making its own offer for Perrigo. However, Perrigo rejected the initial unsolicited offer of $205/share and then also spurned a formalized cash and stock offer on the grounds that Mylan's stock has been inflated by the Teva bid.

The PBoC started the week off with a bang, cutting its Reserve Requirement Ratio (RRR) by 100 bps to 18.5%, which eased some of the anxiety caused by new limits placed on margin trading last week. The economic data didn't cooperate, however. The China flash HSBC PMI registered its fourth consecutive contraction and a one year low as the headline number missed estimates. Meanwhile, Japan's preliminary April Markit manufacturing PMI missed expectations as well, and slipped into contraction for the first time in nearly a year. Japan monthly trade data saw its first surplus in almost three years, but that was at least in part due to the crash in oil prices pushing down import values.

A Greek official claimed a deal was very close and that no "plan B" was under discussion. One notable report suggested that a potential deal may involve Greece requesting that the ESM facility be used to buy Greek government bonds held by the ECB, with the resulting proceeds used to pay for debt redemptions over the summer.

[11:02] {dino} gj
[11:02] {jfjf64} Feel more comfortable at 500 shares
[11:02] {jfjf64} Then feels like game
[11:02] {jfjf64} No stress
[11:03] {jfjf64} You like that
[11:03] {dino} completely understand
[11:03] {jfjf64} What ya goal these days
[11:03] {dino} running 500s mostly last couple months, occasionally 1,000. thinnies 400
[11:04] {dino} $600/day
[11:04] {dino} not counting options
[11:06] {drewj} how long did it take you guys to get to that level?
[11:06] {dino} too long
[11:07] {jfjf64} Still getting there drew
[11:07] {jfjf64} Go slow my advise
[11:07] {jfjf64} Singles
[11:07] {drewj} it's been two years for me and i'm still playing with 200 shares
[11:07] {jfjf64} Even bunts
[11:07] {dino} for me, its an average, some days better some days worse. goal is average. then add options to "bonus" it
[11:08] {drewj} I get it conceptually now
[11:08] {drewj} my stress level gets really high trading with real money (of course)
[11:08] {drewj} but it makes it a lot harder for me to see what is really going on.
[11:08] {drewj} that's my actual goal right now
[11:09] {drewj} to use small shares and work on reducing stress so I can think clearly
[11:09] {dino} take it slow drew. when comfortable go to 300. about 4 years ago i was at 300s. then 400s for last few years. just starting the 500s now and i've been in this room about 8 years
[11:09] {dino} but everybody is different
[11:10] {drewj} I was not prepared for the painstaking effort of this job
[11:10] {jfjf64} Be positive everday
[11:10] {dino} if it was easy, everybody would do it. once you "get it" it gets easier.
[11:11] {dino} it will become sort of a flow. you will "see" things
[11:11] {dino} and oddly enough, dream them
[11:11] {jfjf64} But once you think you got it BAM mkt kicks ya ass
[11:11] {jfjf64} Right dino
[11:12] {dino} jf, indeed. market humbles everybody
[11:12] {drewj} I know I have the same problems as everyone else but the days I lose really bother me for a while...all night into the next day
[11:12] {jfjf64} Yes look vg
[11:12] {jfjf64} Lol
[11:13] {jfjf64} Ofcourse
[11:13] {drewj} I can't let it go
01[11:13] {@Threei}  why? do you expect to win every day?
[11:13] {jfjf64} No good
01[11:13] {@Threei}  or think it's even possible?
[11:13] {jfjf64} Can't happen
[11:13] {dino} if you take losses properly, they should not bother you. shit happens. its a probability game
[11:13] {drewj} I could spend $200 on anything but if I lose $200 I really effects me in a negative way
01[11:13] {@Threei}  in history there was no single trader that didn't have losses
[11:14] {dino} get over that drew
01[11:14] {@Threei}  it's impossible even in theory
[11:14] {jfjf64} Take 4 looses 6 wins make money
01[11:14] {@Threei}  why do you expect yourself to deny the laws of nature?
[11:14] {drewj} I don't expect to win all the time but the losses make me nuts
01[11:14] {@Threei}  wait
[11:14] {drewj} ok
01[11:14] {@Threei}  there is direct connection between the two
[11:14] {jfjf64} Take ya stop be happy
[11:14] {dino} ex: i started 0 for 2 today, now i'm 3 wins/2 losses, up $280
[11:14] {jfjf64} Ty stop
01[11:15] {@Threei}  if you don't exepct to win all the time, then you have to admit that losses are ntural and part of the game
[11:15] {jfjf64} So true vg
[11:15] {dino} just think probabilities and loses are then natural course of this business
01[11:15] {@Threei}  if so, then you have no more reason to get nuts over them than you would about night coming after day
01[11:15] {@Threei}  part of the nature
[11:16] {drewj} I'm just a crappy trader because I rarely have profit after commissions
[11:16] {dino} vad has a way with words
[11:16] {drewj} he does...that's why I stick around
01[11:16] {@Threei}  so, you work on becoming better trader
01[11:16] {@Threei}  instead of getting nuts
[11:16] {dino} drew, thats because of 200 share size. small size needs "pulp"
[11:17] {drewj} vad
[11:17] {drewj} 's stuff is based on 1000 shares
[11:17] {dino} i could not handle 1000 shares, so had to adapt my system to the smaller share trades
01[11:17] {@Threei}  you work your way up through that
[11:17] {drewj} through what?
[11:17] {drewj} shares?
01[11:17] {@Threei}  in no profession you start learning with "adult" size
01[11:18] {@Threei}  yes
01[11:18] {@Threei}  training wheels
[11:18] {dino} uri broke channel
[11:18] {drewj} yes but it's hard to keep losing without pulp
[11:18] {jfjf64} Twtr .35 short
[11:18] {drewj} I need a lot of 1:3's to stay in
[11:18] {jfjf64} Hold .45
01[11:19] {@Threei}  you are looking at it wrong, drew
[11:19] {drewj} ususally
01[11:19] {@Threei}  200 shares is training wheels size
01[11:19] {@Threei}  not money making size
01[11:19] {@Threei}  you use it to learn to control yoursaelf and to learn the proper techniques
[11:20] {dino} drew, vads system is the best to learn from. only other trader here that sees what i see is ron (he's on vacation). so learn to walk first. he taught me
[11:20] {drewj} it's tough to justify spending and spending...room, broker ext
01[11:20] {@Threei}  so make sure that you learn that fast, and start moving up as you do
[11:20] {drewj} just need to cover those costs for now until i get it
[11:20] {dino} imo, go to 300, whats the difference, $10?
01[11:20] {@Threei}  have you gone to college?
01[11:20] {@Threei}  university?
[11:21] {dino} uri hl l .20
[11:21] {drewj} still paying for it
01[11:21] {@Threei}  had you expected yourself to cover cost from day 1 wheile learning?
[11:21] {jfjf64} Support / resistance  traders best friend
01[11:21] {@Threei}  why do you expect it to be any different in trading?
01[11:21] {@Threei}  wrong expectations set a stage for disappointment
01[11:22] {@Threei}  now, see what happened over these two years you mentioned:
01[11:22] {@Threei}  instead of learning to tarde, you tried to make money
01[11:22] {@Threei}  having no proper skill and focusing on a wrong thing
01[11:22] {@Threei}  thus, two years went by, and you haven't really learned to trade right
01[11:23] {@Threei}  why?
01[11:23] {@Threei}  because you weren't learning,
01[11:23] {@Threei}  you tried to make money
01[11:23] {@Threei}  see what I mean?
[11:23] {jfjf64} I do
[11:23] {jfjf64} Ty sir
01[11:24] {@Threei}  you know how archers are trained?
[11:24] {dino} he's right drew. you need to learn, then the $$$$ comes
01[11:24] {@Threei}  they don't shoot at the traget at first
01[11:25] {@Threei}  they shoot at the wall
01[11:25] {@Threei}  why?
01[11:25] {@Threei}  to focus on proper technique of handing the bow, instead of trying to hit the traget
01[11:25] {@Threei}  only when they get it down, target makes an appearance
[11:26] {drewj} I guess I haven't known what my steps in the process are
[11:26] {dino} bunch of my friends blew up because they refused to learn. they just wanted $$$. when i started, had 8 guys in my town trading (that i knew of), now only i am left
[11:27] {dino} out uri .54, +.34
[11:27] {jfjf64} Nice
[11:28] {dino} ty
[11:28] {jfjf64} Out twtr flat

[11:30] {dino} ugh uri
[11:30] {drewj} took off dino
[11:31] {drewj} I really should have stayed on the room but paper traded
[11:31] {drewj} I'm going to do that now
01[11:31] {@Threei}  told you that a few times
01[11:32] {@Threei}  bit I must have Cassanrda syndrome... no one listens to me :)
[11:32] {drewj} I listen Vad
[11:33] {drewj} I just don't understand the first time...guess I'm slow like that
[11:33] {drewj} hearing dino talk about his friends actually puts things more clearly for me
[11:33] {dino} damn, uri popped a buck over my sell
[11:33] {drewj} I really want to learn and I am willing to spend the time...I just didn't understand the emotional part
[11:34] {dino} get rid of your emotions. this is business.
[11:34] {jfjf64} Watchin stj
[11:34] {dino} if x happens you do y. no emotions
[11:35] {jfjf64} Wish was in
[11:35] {drewj} people are very discouraging about this job too.  I can't really tell people what I'm doing
[11:35] {jfjf64} .15
01[11:35] {@Threei}  so don;t
[11:35] {jfjf64} Lol
01[11:35] {@Threei}  what's the need
[11:35] {jfjf64} Drew
[11:35] {drewj} I stopped
[11:35] {jfjf64} F.  K  people
01[11:35] {@Threei}  they know nothing about this profession, why would you be interested in their opinion
[11:36] {jfjf64} Who pays ya bills
[11:36] {jfjf64} Not people
[11:36] {drewj} unsolicited advice
01[11:36] {@Threei}  the difference between wise and the rest is, wise don't judge what they don't know
[11:36] {jfjf64} Nice vg
01[11:37] {@Threei}  I have zero idea what military pilot job involves - think you'll see me ever passing judgement on that job?
[11:37] {dino} drew. if they are not traders they claim it can't be done or that its not a real job, etc. f#ck them. they are just too chicken to take the leap or jealous
01[11:37] {@Threei}  how come people that never traded think they can talk about it with any kind of authority?
[11:37] {jfjf64} Jealous
[11:37] {drewj} right
01[11:38] {@Threei}  one of the funniest dialogs I've ever had about that:
01[11:38] {@Threei}  some kind of party, general conversation, this, that,
01[11:38] {@Threei}  one guy gets for some reason cross with me
01[11:38] {@Threei}  well, actually I know the reason,
01[11:39] {@Threei}  his girl got too interssted in talking to me, and he was insecure enough to get mad abou it
[11:39] {dino} one of they guys that i know who blew up, now claims that he could do better than i do at this. i asked why not go back into it and beat me? you know what he said? he doesn;t want to trade anymore (won't admit he's wrong).
01[11:39] {@Threei}  so, he asks what I do for a living
[11:39] {dino} it jealousy
01[11:39] {@Threei}  I say I trade the marjkets
01[11:39] {@Threei}  he sneers and says "it can't be done"
01[11:39] {@Threei}  I ask why he thinks so,
01[11:40] {@Threei}  his answer was priceless:
01[11:40] {@Threei}  a few years ago I tried to buy some stock and lost money
01[11:40] {@Threei}  I said:
01[11:40] {@Threei}  ah, I see where you are coming from, and agree with you,
01[11:40] {@Threei}  I had the same experience,
01[11:41] {@Threei}  I tried one to play piano, and nothing good came out of it,
01[11:41] {@Threei}  so now I hold firm opinon that it can't be done.
01[11:41] {@Threei}  after little pause he asked:\
01[11:42] {@Threei}  had you studoed piano?
01[11:42] {@Threei}  I said no
01[11:42] {@Threei}  he said, well, that's why!
01[11:42] {@Threei}  I said exactly
01[11:42] {@Threei}  at this point whole room was laughing
01[11:42] {@Threei}  he was slow on uptake :)
[11:43] {jfjf64} What an asshole
[11:43] {drewj} :)
01[11:43] {@Threei}  bit message was quite clear :)
01[11:43] {@Threei}  but
[11:43] {jfjf64} Bottom line his girl was diggin the vg man
01[11:43] {@Threei}  idiot tried to tarde once withut any learning, lost money... so now he thinks it can't be done
01[11:44] {@Threei}  she totally was
[11:44] {jfjf64} Lol
[11:44] {drewj} hahaha
01[11:44] {@Threei}  and he never thought that he would never expect the same in any other profession'
[11:44] {drewj} lady's man vad?
[11:44] {dino} last week i was on audit committee for our non-profit golf club. two ther guys on it are investment advisors for two local banks. they both start talking about funds. i say why not recommend stocks. they tell me that individual stocks are too risky. then they ask what i do, i say daytrade stocks, swing trade options. they both immediately say it cannot be done profittable over time. i say,
[11:44] {dino} funny, i've been trading full time for over 14 years now
01[11:44] {@Threei}  I don't kniw why people think of trading this way,
01[11:44] {@Threei}  no one would think of playing piano like this
[11:44] {jfjf64} Your story I missed ilmn short .40 break
[11:45] {jfjf64} You owe me
[11:45] {dino} i throw one back
[11:45] {jfjf64} K
[11:46] {drewj} good advice guys
[11:46] {dino} bottom line drew, don't worry what others think or say. just make your money and have fun doing it
01[11:46] {@Threei}  exactly
01[11:47] {@Threei}  you don't live to satisfy them
[11:47] {jfjf64} I been trading diff then I usually do and been workin
[11:47] {drewj} should I just paper trade for a few months and save my money?
[11:47] {drewj} those people just add to the stress.
[11:47] {jfjf64} R u married drew

[11:49] {jfjf64} Nice
[11:49] {drewj} i would love to have some nice profits to show her though
[11:49] {dino} just ignore the naysayers, clear your head, and obey the rules. you will get it
[11:49] {jfjf64} Listen to vg
[11:50] {drewj} I hve been listening to him for a long time...

01[11:59] {@Threei}  US and European indices have seen choppy trading this morning as traders digest a torrent of major earnings
01[11:59] {@Threei}  March existing home sales bounced higher, improving on the flattish February numbers that had been impacted by the harsh winter weather. Sales of previously owned homes climbed to the highest level since September 2013, up 13.5% y/y and beating expectations.
01[11:59] {@Threei}  WTI crude had declined to $56 after spending most of the prior week in a $57-58.50 range in the wake of the last DoE inventory data. Last week's report saw the first miss in crude inventory build in some time, but this morning's DoE report and yesterday's API data saw a return to surprisingly large builds.

[12:08] {jfjf64} Me done
[12:08] {jfjf64} See all manana
[12:10] {dino} great job
[12:10] {jfjf64} Ntrs rinsed me
[12:10] {jfjf64} Ty
[12:11] {dino} see drew, jf is a reason for the people that say it can't be done. they are pissed off he takes off work early. they are mad i vacation when i want. they are just jealous
[12:12] {dino} vsi spike
[12:19] {drewj} so they don't want me to succeed dino
[12:20] {dino} hate to say it, but yes.
01[12:21] {@Threei}  most of them don't
[12:22] {dino} my mother, to this day, wishes i had not sold my insurance business. she hates that i am a trader
01[12:22] {@Threei}  at least not in something they failed in, or never found guts to try
[12:22] {drewj} lousy
01[12:22] {@Threei}  your success is a constant reminder of their failure
[12:23] {drewj} wow
[12:23] {dino} relative no longer talks to me because i suceeded and he failed trading
01[12:23] {@Threei}  while your filure will be their justifiction
[12:23] {dino} and because of this, i no longer get invited to xmas, thanksgiving, etc
[12:24] {drewj} that makes a ton of sense
[12:25] {dino} somehow, in their eyes, it is my fault that he failed
[12:25] {drewj} damn
[12:26] {dino} so thats what i mean when i say ignore them, they are just jealous
[12:30] {drewj} that's sad dino
[12:30] {drewj} tough on you
[12:31] {dino} not anymore. better off without that type of thinking in my life
[12:31] {drewj} yes
[12:31] {dino} some people, just try to bring you down. don't allow it
[12:38] {drewj} vsi here dino?
[12:46] {dino} hang on
[12:46] {dino} buyout rumors
[12:47] {dino} carlson cap 5.34% stake, in talks
[12:47] {dino} so gut says stay away
[12:48] {drewj} Do you short on more vertical spikes?
[12:49] {dino} yes
[12:50] {dino} but news on this one cautions me. usually they spike when company says they hired investment bank to explore alternatives, then they drop. this one has an actual company taking a stake and talking buyout
[12:50] {dino} otherwise i'd short it
[12:52] {drewj} where did you learn the in's and out's of news?
[12:53] {dino} years of trading
[12:54] {dino} but a lot of it is common sense
[12:57] {drewj} what is your stop rule dino?
[12:59] {dino} depends on size. 300 sh usually .40; 400 sh .33-.35; 500 sh .26-.30, 1k sh .15. these can change depending on the spread (a lot of my trades are .20-.50 wide on spreads, so...), but in no case do i risk more than $250/trade.
[13:00] {dino} you must understand that on my trades, the stocks have great move potential. 500 shares and lower i will not trade it is it cannot move at least 30 cents in limited time
[13:01] {drewj} thank you
[13:01] {dino} will not trade it, if it cannot
[13:01] {drewj} i see the pulp
[13:01] {dino} yes, my system is based on pulp
[13:01] {dino} fast drops/fast spikes, ideally more than $2 in seconds
[13:03] {dino} i end up sitting doing nothing for a good part of the day. just waiting for the right drop/spike
[13:03] {drewj} it seems to be that way with most systems
01[13:04] {@Threei}  most GOOD systems
[13:04] {dino} jf is quite a busy trader
[13:04] {drewj} i noticed
[13:04] {dino} the more i trade the less i make
[13:04] {drewj} he seems to try and use your style vad
01[13:06] {@Threei}  jf? he does a mix of my and dino's styles
[13:07] {dino} some traders feel like they have to always be trading. don't fall into that trap
01[13:08] {@Threei}  "false work ethics"
[13:09] {drewj} i really like that...
[13:09] {drewj} is that taoist?
01[13:09] {@Threei}  nah, common sense
01[13:09] {@Threei}  see,
01[13:09] {@Threei}  we are brpought up on idea that work is rewarded
01[13:09] {@Threei}  and in order to get rewarded you need to work
01[13:10] {@Threei}  This is not exactly the case with trading,
01[13:10] {@Threei}  in trading it's quality of what you do that gets you the prize, not the quantity of work
01[13:11] {@Threei}  so, here is a conflict between the conditioning "you need to wqork every minute of your working day"
01[13:11] {@Threei}  and reality of trading where you need to wait for the right opportunity
01[13:11] {@Threei}  so, you sit and wait
[13:13] {drewj} the quality of what i do
[13:13] {drewj} that has a much different focus
01[13:14] {@Threei}  it's all a common sense, it's just that common sense isn't :)
[13:14] {dino} reverse your thinking
[13:15] {drewj} common sense is work long and hard doing a lot of things
01[13:15] {@Threei}  that uis true for a JOB
01[13:15] {@Threei}  but trading is not a job
01[13:15] {@Threei}  trading is business
01[13:15] {@Threei}  in business it's smart work that gets rewarded
[13:16] {dino} i'd say 3 hours a day, i'm just sitting
01[13:16] {@Threei}  ok, here is analogy I just thought of
01[13:16] {@Threei}  that will help you place it right
01[13:17] {@Threei}  imagine you are a hunter sitting in a hide, waiting for your fowl to come to the line of fire
01[13:17] {@Threei}  will you sit and wait and fire only when you see it and get a clear shot in ordwer to succeed
01[13:17] {@Threei}  or will you shoot while there is nothing to shoot at, just to justify your sitting there?
[13:17] {drewj} of course
[13:18] {drewj} that's a good analogy
01[13:18] {@Threei}  :)
[13:19] {drewj} just printing out a picture of a hunter in a tree stand to help me remember
[13:20] {dino} now drew, i could pull 200 out of the ua calls right now and get over my daily, but the calls are bonus, i try to get at least 500 out of them, so swinging
[13:21] {drewj} you think they will be up tomorrow?
[13:22] {dino} tomorrow doesn't matter, i bought time. i have gtc on them for 1.00 move. will re-evaluate each day
[13:23] {dino} shoot for $3k/month options
[13:23] {drewj} I know I already said this but it is so hard to just sit here:)  I should be doing somethingf
[13:24] {dino} really just an extension of my capit system. ua good earnings got hit
[13:24] {drewj} earnings hits tend to rebound?
[13:25] {dino} good earnings that get hit usually start coming back in 2 or 3 days
[13:25] {dino} keep your eyes on ua, uri, mktx. all decent earnings that got hit
[13:26] {dino} oii spikey, somebody knows tonigts earnings perhaps
01[13:28] {@Threei}  drew you need to do something?
01[13:28] {@Threei}  work on your stress control
01[13:28] {@Threei}  practice 3-7-8 breating
01[13:28] {@Threei}  breathing
[13:28] {drewj} I told  you that was the hardest thing for me
01[13:28] {@Threei}  4-7-8, sorry
01[13:29] {@Threei}  you did, so I come up with suggestion
[13:29] {drewj} remember I moved from LA to a small town in PA
[13:30] {dino} did you read vads' techniques of tape reading yet? also, for insight, read reminiscences of a stock operator. ttr book good basic trading book. the other is a fun read with valuable insight (kills me that buffet tries to take credit for jesse's "blood in the streets" quote)
[13:30] {dino} drew, small town pa me too
[13:31] {drewj} i've got both of those.
01[13:31] {@Threei}  got or read?
[13:31] {dino} vads ttr capitulation/euphoria in that book is what got me to my edge
[13:32] {drewj} it's been a big change of work style...being busy to sitting a lot
[13:32] {drewj} read ttr and listened to other
01[13:32] {@Threei}  so... get busy. 4-7-8, learn it and do it regularly
[13:32] {drewj} what do you mean
01[13:32] {@Threei}  then get back to Taoist Trader, m,editation techniques at the end of the book
01[13:33] {@Threei}  [13:28] {@Threei} practice 47-8 breathng
01[13:33] {@Threei}  4-7-8
[13:33] {dino} same here drew. my isurance office would have 120 calls/day. now trading phone never rings, lots of down time. learn to adjust and you will enjoy it. i do a 45 minute lift each day while trading and usually take an hour off each day
01[13:33] {@Threei}  it helps with stress immensely
[13:33] {drewj} what's the 4--7-8 thing?
01[13:34] {@Threei}  gosh... man, you heard of google, didn't you?? :)
01[13:34] {@Threei}  it'll get you to the according page in one click
[13:34] {drewj} got it
01[13:34] {@Threei}  in 5 min you'll know how to do it
01[13:35] {@Threei}  then learn to do it, and do it religiously
01[13:35] {@Threei}  you won't believe how helpful it is

01[12:33] {Threei}  Overnight there were reports that the ECB was studying curbs on Greek bank support via the ELA amid growing opposition to use of the facility to prop up Greece financial sector. Comments by European officials dispelled any hope that resolution would arrive at Friday's Europgroup meeting.
01[12:33] {Threei}  Markets are digesting some poor earnings from major firms this morning. Travelers is down more than 2.5% after only just meeting expectations and reporting big y/y declines in ROE. DuPont is also down more than 2.5% after revenue contracted 9% and missed expectations. IBM saw its 12th straight quarter of revenue contraction, exacerbated by lower hardware sales and the strength of the dollar.
01[12:33] {Threei}  Verizon beat expectations on the bottom line, but net subscriber wireless adds fell and revenue missed expectations. VZ bottomed out at -1.5% but is heading higher. Lockheed and UTX both missed on revenue, although Lockheed also slightly increased its FY guidance. Harley is off 8.4% after cutting its shipment guidance for the year.
01[12:34] {Threei}  After weeks of rumors, Teva launched its $40.1 billion offer for rival Mylan. The cash-and-stock bid is valued at $82/shr, a 48.3% premium compared to Mylan's stock price on March 10, the last trading before speculation of a link-up between the two companies. The contest won't likely be a friendly one

01[12:17] {@Threei}  During the European session, there were news reports that EU Commissioner Juncker was looking at a new plan to prevent a Greek default, as negotiations were going nowhere. Later the Greek government issued a decree forcing local governments to transfer all their cash balances to the central bank ahead of another IMF payment as the nation's cash crunch worsens.
01[12:17] {@Threei}  With the situation looking dire, ECB member Constancio said that if a default happens, EU treaties do not allow a country to be expelled from the euro zone. ECB's Nowotny commented that there would be limited contagion from a Greek exit
01[12:18] {@Threei}  In a sign of things to come, major property firm Kaisa Group Holdings Ltd. Became the first Chinese developer to default on debts denominated in USD after 30 days elapsed from two missed bond payments. Kaisa had until Monday to make the payments after a 30-day grace period expired at the weekend.
