[06:45] {Threei} Short Setup: BRCM 31.99 if stays under 32.15
[06:46] {craigaudio} yes vad like it. room to move down on the daily too
[06:46] {magoo} craig confuse magoo lol
[06:47] {Threei} we are easily confused bunch
[06:47] {Threei} me, I like traffic lights
[06:47] {craigaudio} if it breaks 32 then the daily support levels have been breached
[06:47] {craigaudio} and might move lower
[06:47] {Threei} just two signals to decode
[06:47] {Threei} and color takes away necessity to read
[06:47] {magoo} my personal favorite is light switch vad
[06:47] {craigaudio} yes pelican crossings can be dangerous. people dont always stop
[06:48] {dino} l de .75, hl

[06:49] {Threei} Attention: JNPR sdtop to .69
[06:50] {Threei} DNDN news?
[06:50] {craigaudio} if BRCM does hold here then its actaully a good long on a pullback as it will have made a double bottom
[06:50] {esemde} MPWR in a range
[06:50] {craigaudio} and has held this level many times
[06:51] {craigaudio} MPWR if breaks 17?
[06:52] {Threei} small shares
[06:52] {esemde} wondering if it's a bull trap
[06:52] {Threei} JNPR nears first partial out zone
[06:52] {craigaudio} jnpr inching up nicely
[06:52] {craigaudio} MPWR broke
[06:53] {esemde} there she goes good call craig
[06:53] {craigaudio} i didnt take it
[06:53] {craigaudio} :-(
[06:53] {craigaudio} nevermind
[06:53] {esemde} neither did I
[06:53] {craigaudio} was your call
[06:53] {Threei} Attention: JNPR 1:1, grab half off the table, stop to .74
[06:53] {esemde} something not ringing true for me
[06:54] {Threei} scalpers do your usual routine
[06:54] {magoo} out half .97
[06:54] {craigaudio} nice one. out half. very nice stressfree trade so far
[06:54] {magoo} oh shit....i a scalpewr
[06:54] {Threei} the rest, close your eyes and wait to see what happens once it breaks 24
[06:54] {Threei} stressfree is how I like'em, craig
[06:55] {magoo} 24 is THE WALL
[06:55] {craigaudio} yes. me too, thats why im here. The doctor stopped proscribing the Valium so have to stick to the relaxed moves
[06:56] {Threei} I prefer stress and agonizing over what to do today, BBQ or smoking
[06:56] {craigaudio} my days of RIMM and BIDU are over.
[06:56] {craigaudio} lets not even mention GOOG
[06:56] {Threei} {GOOG} and I just started thinking about commitnment... :(
[06:57] {magoo} thanx jnpr vad,,,very nice
[06:57] {Threei} welcome
[06:57] {Threei} very much my kind of trade
[06:57] {Threei} salmonish behaviour
[06:57] {craigaudio} sorry good but your just too foot loose and fancy free for me baby
[06:57] {craigaudio} good=GOOG
[06:57] {Threei} held very well while NQ pulled back, reinforcing long idea
[06:58] {Threei} then spiked with NQ bounce
[06:58] {dino} out de .79, +1.04
[06:58] {craigaudio} nice dino. earnings play i presume
[06:58] {Threei} and when all this happens so close to major resistance, it adds nice spicy taste to things
[06:58] {craigaudio} dino what indicators on charts do you use?
[06:59] {Threei} stop to .84
[06:59] {dino} ty, yes, plus i just bought one this a.m.
[06:59] {magoo} dart board

[07:00] {craigaudio} BRCM fired
[07:00] {dino} out pde .10, +.20
[07:01] {dino} out rvbd .80, +.30
[07:01] {craigaudio} let me know if it was still valid as im in
[07:01] {Threei} craig, you realize it violated 'IF" in setup's scenario?
[07:01] {Threei} at the very least it means your stop would have to be .21 instead of .16
[07:01] {dino} \slowing down
[07:01] {craigaudio} shall i just get out?
[07:02] {Threei} and quite likely it made a trade questionable if not invalid
[07:02] {Threei} well, NQ tries to break down
[07:02] {dino} whats w/agil?
[07:02] {Threei} maybe give it a chance
[07:02] {Threei} there
[07:03] {Threei} trail stop to .11
[07:04] {craigaudio} thnks vad
[07:05] {magoo} covered brcm .89,
[07:06] {magoo} ty boss..although it was not eqactly your setup
[07:06] {Threei} I'll just go ahead and take credit anyway

[07:07] {craigaudio} im out too at 1:1
[07:07] {craigaudio} nice one
[07:07] {magoo} might as well...i blame u alot when its my fault
[07:07] {dino} mnst l .40
[07:07] {dino} risky
[07:07] {DaveG} lol mags
[07:08] {Threei} if it makes you feel better, by all means... but I don't understand why you need to blame anyone else when we have dave here
[07:08] {DaveG} lol
[07:08] {Threei} :)
[07:08] * magoo slaps DaveG around a bit with a large trout
[07:08] {Threei} see? and life's all rosy
[07:09] {DaveG} i'm glad i can be of service
[07:10] {Threei} everyone's a winner... slapper feels relief, slapee feels needed
[07:10] {DaveG} :)
[07:11] {Threei} TBSI...
[07:11] {Threei} smaaaal shares long
[07:11] {magoo} sheesh...dino just slapped me for playing with his computer on
[07:12] {craigaudio} now vad?
[07:12] {Threei} yes
[07:12] {Threei} meanie that dino
[07:12] {dino} mnst stop is .60
[07:12] {Threei} stop under .80 TBSI
[07:13] {Threei} JNPR balance stop to .89
[07:13] {craigaudio} waiting to get filled TBSI
[07:13] {dino} out mnst .73, +.33
[07:14] {dino} dino is bacckkk
[07:14] {Threei} hehe
[07:14] {craigaudio} you tha man dino
[07:14] {Threei} welcome back
[07:14] {dino} why thank you
[07:14] {craigaudio} dont do anything stupid now though
[07:14] {craigaudio} i find it much easyier to put back. and usually do
[07:15] {dino} :)
[07:15] {Threei} dino sighs, throws away bottle of vodka and cancels escort service call
[07:15] {dino} lol
[07:15] {craigaudio} lol
[07:15] {Threei} TBSI 1:2
[07:15] {craigaudio} big spread on TBSI
[07:16] {Threei} that's why "smaaaal shares" remark
[07:16] {craigaudio} yes noted
[07:16] {craigaudio} thats why i only put 3000 on ;-)
[07:16] {dino} whoa
[07:16] {Threei} so, you caused that spike singlehandedly :)
[07:17] {craigaudio} lol
[07:17] {esemde} CVLT..
[07:17] {Threei} good luck finding a buyer now
[07:17] {craigaudio} with 3000 shares on a stock like that id have to have a valium drip and escort girls fanning me down while i neck vodka
[07:18] {dino} now thats a vacation
[07:19] {Threei} lol
[07:19] {craigaudio} for experienced traders only. not everyone can take that sort of external enjoyment and trade with a level head
[07:20] {Threei} that's a questionable assumption... see, you assume the head, level or not, is a necessary accessory for trading
[07:22] {craigaudio} damn. ive been done by the barber. he said i need a flat top cut for trading!!! the fiend
[07:23] {dino} thats what i have
[07:23] {dino} thought it was required
[07:24] * magoo slaps dino around a bit with a large trout
[07:25] {dino} iaac spike
[07:25] {magoo} hey vad, for scalpers out of jnpr, 24 a long trigger/
[07:26] {craigaudio} forming a triangle here in 5min. could go easily higher
[07:28] {dino} seeing circles here
[07:30] {Threei} 24.06 rather, magoo
[07:30] {Roman} GIGM trying for new high
[07:31] {magoo} ok, how about brcm as a renewed short?
[07:32] {Threei} being in red while NQ positive makes it a candidate
[07:32] {Threei} ideally, if stays under .95
[07:32] {Threei} it's just that it requires NQ reversal to downside to wrok
[07:32] {Threei} so if it happens, sure
[07:34] {craigaudio} worth adding on the JNPR if it breaks 24.06? is that a good option too
[07:34] {Roman} long ESLR
[07:34] {Roman} 1/2 size 9.08
[07:35] {Threei} not sujre craig... tough call
[07:35] {craigaudio} might be stopped here anyway now
[07:38] {craigaudio} DRYS falling
[07:39] {craigaudio} looking at BIF as a swing. put in hammer on daily with volume coming in
[07:43] {Roman} CYDS again
[07:47] {craigaudio} pretty much range bound day so far
[07:50] {craigaudio} missed infy
[07:50] {dino} de hl l .50
[07:50] {craigaudio} whats "hl" stand for dino?
[07:52] {Threei} half lot
[07:52] {craigaudio} ok thanks
[07:52] {craigaudio} YM dropping
[07:53] {craigaudio} do you trade QQQQ or the futures at all Vad?
[07:53] {Threei} not really
[07:54] {craigaudio} k
[07:55] {craigaudio} good sign with JNPR holding
[07:57] {craigaudio} gave it the kiss of death. stopped out second half
[07:58] {craigaudio} what about shorting EBAY if it bounces back to 33.14?
[07:59] {Threei} I'd oprefer it to stay under .10
[08:00] {Threei} shorted BRCM, magoo?

[08:12] {DaveG} see :)
[08:12] {Raven} but be careful
[08:12] {Threei} so what dave, there is such thing as preemptive punishment
[08:13] {DaveG} sigh
[08:13] {Threei} BRCM obeys NQ
[08:15] {lklarson} hi all
[08:15] {Threei} lkl :)
[08:16] {craigaudio} hi larson
[08:17] {craigaudio} Vad do you use anything else bar bollinger bands/volume as indicators
[08:17] {dino} gm lkl
[08:17] {Threei} nope
[08:17] {Threei} even BBs are on the verge of relevance for me
[08:20] {craigaudio} k
[08:20] {dino} lend jumpy
[08:22] {craigaudio} TRINS rising. not good for longs
[08:22] {craigaudio} do you watch market internals like TRINS and the TICKs Vad?
[08:23] {dino} cvlt s .59, stop .77
[08:23] {Threei} nope
[08:23] {Roman} JASO losing it
[08:23] {craigaudio} k

[08:27] {dino} cvlt tighten bstop to .69, not feeling it
[08:31] {dino} cov cvlt .39, +.20
[08:31] {Roman} WINN wild one
[08:31] {Roman} but looks it wants higher
[08:31] {Roman} bidding 27.50
[08:32] {Roman} 1/2
[08:33] {dino} taking couple hour break, 2x's new goal
[08:33] {dino} thx all
[08:34] {Threei} gj dino
[08:34] {lklarson} tk dino
[08:35] {dino} :)
[08:35] {magoo} dino 6 for 6
[08:35] {dino} lucky
[08:41] {craigaudio} BMRN long Vad?
[08:42] {craigaudio} filling gap and close to break 18
[08:42] {Threei} if stays above .60, sure
[08:43] {craigaudio} .74 entry?
[08:43] {Threei} .72 if you go off intraday chart, .75 if off daily...
[08:43] {Threei} .75 I guess would be more accurate
[08:44] {craigaudio} no something that interests you?
[08:44] {craigaudio} not*
[08:44] {craigaudio} just wondering if there is anything that would put you off it
[08:45] {Threei} well, it's a nice chart overall,
[08:45] {Threei} the only thing that cools me off a little is,
[08:45] {Threei} it consolidates for a bit too long, and day is getting mature
[08:45] {Threei} I tend to trust breakouts less when we go into lunch time
[08:46] {craigaudio} ok. what do you switch to later into lunch time? breakdowns?
[08:46] {Roman} no go for WINN
[08:47] {Threei} too broad question
[08:47] {Threei} breakdowns cabn be just as treacherous, it all depends on particular environment
[08:47] {Threei} lunch time usually provides more of range opportunities
[08:47] {craigaudio} just wondering what your focus is then as the day progresses
[08:47] {Threei} bounces or retreats
[08:48] {Roman} shorting JASO small, under 24.55
[08:48] {Threei} less trend continuations
[08:48] {Threei} thus more of scalping approach
[08:48] {craigaudio} ok. whats a retreat? never heard that phrase used
[08:48] {Threei} bounce with your monitor turned upside down
[08:48] {DaveG} it's when your church group goes into the woods
[08:48] {Threei} or you standing on your head
[08:49] {Threei} but not both as it will turn retreat into bounce again
[08:49] {craigaudio} lol
[08:49] {Threei} :)
[08:50] {Roman} in JASO short
[08:50] {lklarson} wont let me short JASO
[08:50] {lklarson} same old story
[08:51] {craigaudio} yes im using the order bar more now to ween myself off the matrix and perhaps get a new broker
[08:52] {Threei} you guys like torturing yourself, don't you? :)
[08:52] {lklarson} not a bad idea
[08:52] {craigaudio} keep TS for charts and just pay the subscription or make a few trades a month to make sure its free
[08:52] {craigaudio} and you like teasing us about it ;-)
[08:52] {Roman} tradestation has very low short availability
[08:52] {lklarson} that all its good:)
[08:53] {craigaudio} hey its not that easy to just unplug yourself from the matrix. its such a warm fluffy place
[08:53] {lklarson} Roman, do you miss alot of short trades to
[08:53] {Roman} no, i have CyberTrader and InteractiveBrokers as well
[08:53] {lklarson} ok, thx
[08:54] {craigaudio} DISH B/O
[08:54] {Roman} but it looks like Laser has best short availability of any one
[08:54] {Threei} everyone is so complicated... I feel inferior with my single broker, no indicators, no fancy ways of sending order... {G}
[08:55] {lklarson} will definately make plans to change, just missing to many trades
[08:55] {craigaudio} yes all this technology is taking out on my poor hamster powering the generator wheel
[08:55] {Threei} that could be a bad idea lkl
[08:56] {craigaudio} the shorting thing doesnt bother me so much
[08:56] {Threei} with superior fills and shiort availability you will lose a reason to complain
[08:56] {lklarson} true:)
[08:56] {Threei} (feel free to slap me)
[08:56] {craigaudio} ive just had half a dozen bad fills and other glitches
[08:56] {lklarson} I'll find something else to complain about, lol
[08:57] {Threei} yeah, Dave is always here
[08:57] {DaveG} lol
[08:58] * magoo slaps Threei around a bit with a large trout
[08:58] * magoo slaps Threei around a bit with a large trout
[08:58] {Threei} hmmm
[08:58] {Threei} again... why would one feel a need to slap me when dave is around...
[08:59] {lklarson} good thing since I do not even know how to slap people around

[09:00] {Threei} wasn't directed to you, but OK, I can see how you could take it as an invitation
[09:01] {Threei} don't do it craig
[09:01] {craigaudio} no not after yesterday
[09:01] {DaveG} aapl is evil
[09:01] {Threei} your fingers barely healed from last knife catching session
[09:01] {craigaudio} yes yesterday was a bummer
[09:02] {craigaudio} plus when i shorted appl and the n it bounced!
[09:02] {craigaudio} aapl was much nicer under 90. less volatile
[09:03] {Threei} {Adam} AAPL is evil
[09:06] {craigaudio} praise the lord
[09:07] {magoo} vad, loss of .50 new brcm short trigger or not so good?

[09:09] {Threei} better keep stops tight at this time
[09:11] {craigaudio} NQ lower high on bounce
[09:11] {craigaudio} you know i dont think BRCM will break that .50 area magoo
[09:11] {Roman} AMAT breaking support
[09:12] {craigaudio} just a feeling
[09:15] {craigaudio} aapl overeaction. probably leaked by someone to push the price down in order to reload

[09:42] {craigaudio} what do you think Vad?
[09:42] {Threei} valid play
[09:43] {craigaudio} would be nice to get NQ drop. look at the 60min. could fill gap from 30 march
[09:43] {craigaudio} but not getting carried away
[09:47] {craigaudio} not working. stop to .60
[09:48] {craigaudio} looks like could be bounce. volume coming in
[09:52] {Threei} short .58

[09:58] {craigaudio} added when you entered Vad kept same stop. if fails only slightly smaller loss but potential for more gain
[09:59] {Threei} NQ is upticking stubbornly
[09:59] {craigaudio} you think a good approach. i sometimes add to a position when it comes close to my stop
[09:59] {Threei} we are trying to swim against the current so far
[09:59] {craigaudio} damn
[09:59] {Threei} stopped
[09:59] {Threei} no, I don't
[09:59] {Threei} we talked about it yesterday
[10:00] {Threei} adding to position that moves against you doesn't make sense to me

[10:10] {craigaudio} not really
[10:10] {Threei} just trying to understand how your trading plan shapes up
[10:11] {craigaudio} after yesterday...i decided not to take bounces on stocks that have bad news and also the NQ is trending down also
[10:12] {craigaudio} not missing all bounces in a market thats currently not downtrend
[10:12] {craigaudio} trading plan needs updating. sorting out as we speak
