[06:40] {Threei} stop .35
[06:41] {Threei} cover half who got it
[06:41] {lklarson} out akam thx vad
[06:41] {Threei} good reflexes lkl
[06:41] {magoo} that never bounced fwiw
[06:41] {Threei} it did
[06:42] {Threei} from .22 to .30
[06:42] {Threei} which constituted very weak bounce
[06:42] {Threei} and set stop at .35
[06:42] {magoo} same argument ...third time
[06:42] {Threei} ?
[06:42] {magoo} why not just calkl your entry?
[06:42] {Threei} you lost me
[06:42] {Threei} scroll up
[06:42] {Threei} I named the trigger
[06:42] {magoo} i read it
[06:43] {magoo} i was ready
[06:43] {BillyD} it happened fast
[06:43] {Threei} magoo
[06:43] {Threei} xxx trigger if bounce is weak
[06:43] {Threei} what is not clear in that?
[06:43] {magoo} forget it
[06:44] {Threei} look, you say it's not a first time, so there obviously problem
[06:44] {Threei} why don't you explain so I make it more clear?
[06:44] {magoo} look AAPL
[06:44] {magoo} wow
[06:44] {BillyD} siad of bounce and not if bounce is weak...a little confusing is all
[06:44] {BillyD} a typo
[06:44] {Threei} cover AKAM in full
[06:44] {Threei} it is, o and i are next to each other
[06:45] {BillyD} no
[06:45] {Threei} OK, if you want me to go shoot myself because of this type, tell so and I will
[06:45] {Threei} typo
[06:45] {BillyD} lol
[06:45] {BillyD} put away the gun
[06:46] {esemde} monitoring ARBA
[06:47] {Threei} look, I dopn't want to dwell on it, but with Of instead of If sentence doesn't even make sense... am I that unreasobnable to expect that knowing my setups you can decipher that?
[06:48] {Threei} 60 cents winner call and I get beaten up for that?? :)
[06:48] {BillyD} [06:39] {Threei} watching for bounce
[06:48] {Threei} yes
[06:48] {lklarson} tough love in here
[06:48] {Threei} qwhich defines resistance
[06:48] {BillyD} one starts thinking long right
[06:48] {BillyD} [06:39] {Threei} 33.20 short trigger of bounce is weak
[06:48] {BillyD} [06:40] {Threei} stop .35
[06:49] {Threei} so? I call short trigger and condition
[06:49] {BillyD} one is switching mindset to short possibility as well
[06:49] {Threei} OK
[06:49] {BillyD} [06:40] {Threei} stop .35
[06:49] {BillyD} [06:41] {Threei} cover half who got it
[06:49] {BillyD} happened very fast
[06:50] {Threei} yes, fast is fine, hard to get in
[06:50] {BillyD} not complaining just trying to help all understand
[06:50] {Threei} this is misunderstanding which I want to remove
[06:50] {BillyD} I know
[06:50] {Threei} if you want me to rfemove running commentary as my thinking develops, I will
[06:50] {BillyD} so the "if" does make a difference as it clearly defines a condition that would change
[06:51] {esemde} somebody explain....all the positive news coming out of the market and it's going down...hmmmmm
[06:51] {BillyD} people want to sell ese
[06:51] {Threei} well... that's the essence of the market ese
[06:52] {BillyD} Vad...keep posting
[06:52] {Threei} if it moved axccordingly to what everyone understands, why would anyone ever lose money?
[06:52] {dino} ocnf l .05, hl
[06:52] {esemde} true...
[06:52] {dino} drys hl l .15, risky
[06:54] {Roman} long DRYS or short?
[06:54] {dino} simply more sellers than buyers, don't overthink
[06:55] {dino} l
[06:55] {Roman} cool
[06:55] {dino} :)
[06:59] {Threei} MOBE?
[06:59] {magoo} oh shit, me or u vad???
[06:59] * Threei slaps DaveG around a bit with a large trout
[06:59] {Threei} you
[06:59] * magoo slaps DaveG around a bit with a large trout
[06:59] {DaveG} hey
[06:59] {Threei} there... my trick worked
[07:00] {Threei} quicly slap, then pass the trout to magoo
[07:00] {Threei} oh hi Dave
[07:00] {Threei} didn't notice you there
[07:00] {DaveG} yeah
[07:01] {Threei} well, you hide in the corner so often, we started forgetting your face
[07:01] {DaveG} :)
[07:01] {Threei} COST, watching for long
[07:01] {Threei} not sure about this break, I'd prefer little pullback
[07:02] {Threei} like this... any sign of strength from here, half lot
[07:02] {Threei} and if loses .85, no play for now
[07:03] {Threei} in, .79 stop
[07:04] {Threei} no worky
[07:04] {lklarson} stopped cost
[07:05] {magoo} but thats the way to call it he he...really
[07:05] {Threei} ah come on, that was the same ckind of running commentary
[07:05] {Threei} the opnly difference is,
[07:05] {Threei} it was a bit slower
[07:05] {Threei} so I could post my own entry in time
[07:06] {Threei} unlike AKAM where it was time to cover already when I could post
[07:06] {Roman} FRPT Force Protection Awarded $5.3 Million Contract For New ILAV Vehicles and Equipment (16.25 +0.55)
[07:07] {Threei} good thing I didn't trust that break on COST and preferred to go with safer entry
[07:07] {Threei} stop would be much nastier
[07:11] {Threei} CREE?

[09:06] {dino} stopped leh -.25
[09:07] {esemde} UTstarcom thats a name i haven't heard for a long time.. bought that at 10 and sold around 4 about 4 years ago....As I said , no more swing trading for this bloke
[09:08] {BillyD} FRPT in aggr .10
[09:08] {dino} ese, ese, ese
[09:09] {esemde} I know, I know , I know......I have however met you all and this is in the process of changing
[09:09] {esemde} make that changed!!!
[09:09] {dino} don't kid yourself, about 4 years ago i was doing the same
[09:12] {esemde} thats when i was investing based on fundamentals
[09:12] {BillyD} that's cursing ese
[09:12] {esemde} It's a load of crap........unless you seem to be Waren Buffet
[09:13] {esemde} Wait a minute...didn't he have a hit...opps sorry, thats Jimmy buffet
[09:14] {BillyD} break now or never FRPT
[09:14] {dino} yes, but warren has pretty much unlimited capital, so downturns don't really bother him, not gettingh margin calls
[09:15] {Threei} good point
[09:15] {Threei} if you believe in trend and have enough capital, you will be fine sooner or later unless trend has changed forever
[09:16] {esemde} Took the Canadian Securities Course....1 of 10 out of a class of 65 that passed it...thought the world was my oyster in2000
[09:16] {Threei} that's the distinction that investors are never told about when bombarded with adages like "don't try to time the market, invest for a long haul"
[09:17] {dino} asset alligators
[09:17] {esemde} then march or april came along ......the rest is history
[09:17] {esemde} been loosing or breaking even ever since
[09:17] {BillyD} out some FRPT +14-.19
[09:17] {Threei} I want to see how that "long haul" worked out for those who believed in let's say QCOM 1000 target and bought at 600
[09:17] {Threei} no... I don't want to see that
[09:18] {BillyD} well Warren knows to bail as well
[09:18] {BillyD} and his fundamental research is more thatn looking reports
[09:18] {BillyD} he has teams to see if companies are lying, etc
[09:18] {esemde} ya....crystal ball
[09:18] {Threei} yeah, that's not the average joe approach and capabilities
[09:20] {BillyD} out rest FRPT +.17

[09:34] {Chaeron} BD I have no idea... I'm way too close to it to be rational... I suck
[09:35] {BillyD} ty
[09:36] {Chaeron} you talkin' about holding overnight? I wouldn't know... scalp? Might offer a setup, but you're a good read on those
[09:36] {BillyD} scalp
[09:37] {BillyD} learning to trailbetter
[09:37] {Chaeron} just missed an entry long... I'm too cautious to short with strength like that... not confident lately for risky
[09:37] {dino} hl s star .15, hl l drys .45
[09:39] {BillyD} it's too strong for short now imo
[09:40] {Chaeron} yeah... seems that way... and I wish you're right
