[06:06] {Threei} eventhough I talk and walk

[06:08] {gabby} good morning all
[06:09] {Threei} gabby :)
[06:09] {BillyD} morning all
[06:09] {Threei} Billy :)
[06:10] {cosmo} zzzzz
[06:10] {cosmo} are we there yet?
[06:11] {Threei} where is there?
[06:12] {cosmo} that's just a technocallity
[06:14] {cosmo} its actually.... a non-local phenomena
[06:14] {cosmo} raven understands
[06:14] {cosmo} i think
[06:14] {Threei} {Raven} huh?
[06:14] {Raven} And good mornink all }
[06:14] {Raven} ??
[06:15] {Threei} there
[06:15] {Threei} hi :)
[06:15] {Raven} it gets stranger by the day ...
[06:15] {Raven} :)
[06:15] {Threei} and just when you thought there is no way it could
[06:15] {Raven} sigh
[06:15] {Threei} curioser and curioser
[06:15] {Raven} arghh
[06:15] {cosmo} there = here +t
[06:15] {magoo} why TWB crushed?
[06:16] {Threei} 07:55am [TWB] Reports Q2 $0.07 v 0.15e, R $213.7M v 211.9Memore.. - Reports Q2 SSS -2% - Guides Q3 EPS $0.40 - 0.45 v $0.65e - Guides Q4 EPS $0.94 - 1.04 v $1.01e - Guides FY08 EPS $1.80-1.95 v 2.23 (Previously guided $2.10-2.25) - The principal reason for the comparatively lower forecasted range of earnings is a revised estimate of the calendar shift on the company''s quarterly sales and earnings comparisons.
[06:18] {cosmo} efut
[06:18] {BillyD} Vad is that from TTN
[06:18] {Threei} yes
[06:18] {BillyD} 1 susscriber
[06:18] {BillyD} sub
[06:18] {Threei} who?
[06:18] {BillyD} you
[06:19] {Threei} yeah right
[06:19] {magoo} ty
[06:19] {Threei} yw
[06:19] {BillyD} does it have stuff from Dow Jones
[06:19] {BillyD} or they resad and rehash
[06:19] {BillyD} read
[06:19] {Threei} UI am not sure what wire they get news from but it seems timely
[06:21] {Threei} my take is,
[06:22] {Threei} I doubt I'd go for audio version for the price, I just don't believe in fast trigger contests based on 10 seconds delay of text vs audio, counting on trader's ability to grasp the news in a few seconds of listening, eneter the symbol, evaluate the chart, volume etc
[06:23] {Threei} but if your style of trading requires being aware of news
[06:23] {Threei} and desirably right away when news is out,
[06:23] {Threei} text version is quite useful
[06:24] {Threei} it's comprehensive, there is a good coverage of general market happenings on top of stock-specific stories,
[06:24] {Threei} program is compact, runs smoothly
[06:24] {Threei} gives audio signal when new headline appears
[06:25] {Threei} e-mail with market outlook, for both US and foreign
[06:25] {Threei} all this for under 50/month looks reasonable to me
[06:26] {BillyD} agree
[06:26] {Threei} if you decide to trial it, use a banner in members page
[06:27] {Threei} where you get by logging in
[06:27] {BillyD} ok
[06:28] {cosmo} TECD
[06:28] {cosmo} pre mkt high = 39.51
[06:28] {cosmo} should test it
[06:29] {cosmo} fwiw
[06:29] {BillyD} nice little drop
[06:29] {cosmo} that's prolly my fault
[06:29] {BillyD} lol
[06:29] {Threei} I think I'll need to do a blog post on trading the news
[06:30] {BillyD} good idea imo]
[06:30] {Threei} getting asked about that often enough to warrant some blurb
[06:31] {Threei} amazes me how many people think that if they get news right the moment news is out, they are golden and can make money consistently just by enetring quickly
[06:33] {Threei} watching XING
[06:33] {Threei} 10 long if stays above .85
[06:35] {Threei} JSDA 10.75 long half lot if keeps above .55
[06:39] {Threei} JNPR .63 long if stays above .50
[06:41] {Threei} .59 stubborn seller JNPR
[06:41] {Threei} should jump if he goes away

[07:24] {Threei} .06 stop/invaliadting level
