[05:39] {hawkfan4} good morning vad
[05:41] {bruce} hello hawk
[05:43] {Threei} hawk :)
[05:45] {hawkfan4} morning bruce
[05:45] {bruce} do you need to reset laser charts every morning vad?
[05:45] {Threei} no why?
[05:45] {bruce} I keep a few small thmbnail charts always open
[05:45] {bruce} each morning about half never open
[05:46] {bruce} I need to type in new stock symbol to get them to display anything
[05:46] {Threei} did you save the layout after you made changes?
[05:46] {bruce} yes
[05:46] {Threei} wait... never opens as in don't show anything, remaining blank? or window itself doesn't appear?
[05:46] {bruce} not a big deal
[05:46] {bruce} just a nuisance
[05:47] {bruce} well for example
[05:47] {bruce} one chart is of rimm
[05:47] {bruce} it says rimm
[05:47] {cosmo} ADLS pre mkt high = 2.95 far
[05:47] {bruce} but nothing is showing
[05:47] {bruce} and there is an x in left corner
[05:48] {Threei} X is a sign that chart is not working, yes
[05:48] {bruce} if I type ibm that stock comes up ok
[05:48] {bruce} then I can type rimm again and it will be ok
[05:48] {Threei} but why it happens for you and not for me... no idea
[05:48] {bruce} I'm using vista
[05:48] {Threei} argh
[05:48] {Threei} POS
[05:48] {bruce} may be a glitch
[05:49] {bruce} about half come up and half dont
[05:49] {Threei} [ADLS] Advanced Life Sciences Cethromycin Achieves All Endpoints in Second Pivotal Phase III Trial for Treatment of Pneumonia

[06:02] {esemde} good morning ....NUAN is back ehhhhhh

[06:02] {Threei} made whole 25 bucks
[06:03] {esemde} nice work.....pre a post trding is a tough business
[06:03] {Threei} something's wrong with NUAN
[06:04] {Threei} dumping like there is no tomorrow
[06:04] {Threei} or there is but very bleak
[06:04] {bruce} hi ese

[06:06] {bruce} rimm appears to be at premarket low
[06:06] {dino} gm all;

[06:08] {bruce} you bet - I'm dangerous
[06:08] {Threei} hmmm... not sure
[06:08] {Threei} RIMM is dangerous as it is, multiply by 3 premarket
[06:08] {bruce} about dangerous or the bounce?
[06:09] {Threei} lol, bounce
[06:09] {bruce} k
[06:09] {Threei} my take on premarket trading:
[06:10] {Threei} it takes something very very clear or extraordinary to make me do it
[06:11] {Threei} routine opportinities will be presented all over during normal market hours, why would I want to chase them in more risky premarket environment
[06:11] {bruce} k - same
[06:11] {bruce} I start looking at charts about premarket open - but don't trade those
[06:11] {Threei} same

[06:41] {dino} gj
[06:42] {Threei} as much as I would like to tell you "no, hold it"... my hardcore scalper's nature prevents me from lecturing anyone of taking profit :)
[06:42] {esemde} if it retraces i'lll think about the pull back
[06:42] {Threei} or consolidates and forms a range for breakout
[06:42] {Threei} SEED

[06:54] {Threei} wtg
[06:54] {Threei} ese is hot
[06:54] {Threei} if a quote is not updating, a market center can declare self-help, and must notify the destination(s) of its order flow that a self-help situation exists. In such a situation, NASDAQ will turn off its router to the market center (as it has in the past). What is new is the explicit declaration of a self-help situation.

[08:03] {bruce} 3 stops 1 win
[08:04] {bruce} probably should have stopped for day already butglad that one worked
[08:04] {Threei} I don't want to overdrill it... but review the calls
[08:04] {Threei} you skipped all winning ones, and fairly decent size of wins,
[08:04] {Threei} and picked two small stops
[08:05] {bruce} yes - missed winners
[08:06] {bruce} typical
[08:06] {Threei} the day you know why you do it, or learn how to overcome this is the day tyour trading turns around
[08:07] {bruce} it wan't intentional vad
[08:07] {bruce} busy looking for trades and look at this screen intermittently
[08:07] {Threei} of course not
[08:08] {Threei} but when it happens so often that you label it as typical
[08:08] {Threei} it's not an accident
[08:08] {bruce} it is typical
[08:08] {Threei} it's a pattern
[08:08] {bruce} you've seen it
[08:08] {bruce} don't see how that canhappen over and over
[08:08] {Threei} I have
[08:08] {bruce} I'm not screening what I take

[08:48] {dino} we missed that, should've took a 100 shares short
[08:48] {bruce} probably not a great time to be swing trading - stocks seem to be pretty erratic
[08:49] {bruce} shell shocked here dino- looking for something a bit safer

[08:53] {bruce} fwiw hon has really nice tend too - but who knows where it will reverse - and its nyse
[08:57] {bruce} do you find most of your winning trades tend to work out right away dino?
[08:59] {dino} no, my entries usually suck

[11:17] {Raven} back ... "bidded" ... ohmygod
[11:18] {bruce} is ohmygod a word raven?
[11:18] {Raven} you bet
[11:18] {bruce} k
[11:18] {bruce} adding it to vacab learned here
[11:18] {Raven} yes
[11:21] {Threei} bidded is just as good as spreaded
[11:21] {Threei} or selled
[11:21] {Threei} or striked
[11:22] {Raven} {}
[11:22] {Raven} sheesh
[11:22] {Threei} {--- hiding
[11:22] {Threei} ummm... I should say "hided"
[11:22] {Raven} that does it
[11:22] * Raven slaps Threei around a bit with a large trout
[11:22] {Threei} uh oh
[11:22] {Threei} hided not too well I see
[11:22] * Raven slaps dino around a bit with a large trout
[11:23] * Raven and Chaeron too
[11:24] * Raven kicks magoo out of his tree stand
[11:25] {bruce} fmcn tricky ba@ta@d
[11:25] {bruce} new low then higher low confirmation of trend reversal
[11:27] {dino} lol\
[11:33] {bruce} dino - you would have given fmcn about 20c from new low for your stop if had traded it as reversal?
[11:39] {dino} y
[11:39] {dino} never hit me i was at 54.05
[11:39] {Threei} raven hit you
[11:39] {Threei} doesa it count?
[11:40] {Threei} I mean he hitted you
[11:40] {Threei} gosh, one day Raven is going to take a trip to Victoria just to suffocate me
[11:41] {bruce} ah - you mean your long entry is at .05 or your stop?
[11:41] {dino} long entry, stop was .69\
[11:41] {bruce} k - got you
[11:41] {dino} figured .00 would hold
[11:41] {dino} not trading it now tho
[11:42] {Raven} lol
[11:42] {bruce} looks like you read it right - doesn't seem to be done dumping yet
[11:42] {dino} can't figure out what this mkt wants today
[11:42] {Raven} your $$
[11:42] {bruce} lol
[11:42] {bruce} raven nailed it
[11:42] {Threei} sure... but why "today"?
[11:43] {Raven} because it is snowing ?
[11:43] {Threei} maybe I am paranoid... but it seems to me it always wants mine
[11:43] {Threei} rarely gets it though
[11:43] {Raven} heh
[11:43] {bruce} lol - got to learn to share vad
[11:43] {Threei} my streak continues so far, no single l,osing day in Nov
[11:44] {Raven} nice
[11:44] {Threei} I shared my fair share in 1996-1998 bruce
[11:44] {bruce} great
[11:44] {Threei} enough is enough
[11:44] {bruce} feel same
[11:44] {Threei} since then sharing goes one way
[11:44] {bruce} done done done w sharing
[11:51] {dino} bidu -24
[11:52] {Threei} -26 you mean
[11:53] {dino} lol
[12:00] {dino} rimm back to 100
[12:09] {Threei} getting tempted by RIMM
[12:09] {dino} same thinking overnight
[12:09] {dino} same w/bidu small
[12:11] {Threei} in for a scalp
[12:11] {Threei} .28
[12:12] {Threei} happily out
[12:12] {Threei} .65
[12:15] {Threei} sigh
[12:15] {Threei} do I ever grow up
[12:17] {bruce} why would you want to vad?
[12:17] {Threei} I wanna be like dino
[12:17] {bruce} would make you an "old fart" as the kids say
[12:17] {bruce} lol
[12:17] {Threei} ummm
[12:17] {Threei} am afraid I am there already, lol
[12:18] {dino} dino is younger than vad
[12:18] {bruce} just get yourself one of those funny circus mirrors
[12:18] {Threei} dino gets bigger moves
[12:18] {bruce} lucky you dino
[12:18] {bruce} youth
[12:18] {dino} missed both, my kids distracted me
[12:18] {bruce} \good lucks
[12:18] {bruce} and good lucks in the markets
[12:18] {bruce} what more could you ask for?
[12:19] {bruce} lol
[12:20] {dino} bidu up 6
[12:22] {bruce} yes -i like dinos plays too- like the larger moves
[12:24] {Threei} don't take my blabbing too seriuosly bruce
[12:24] {Threei} what I do works for me for many years
[12:24] {Threei} indivudual personalitytraits form the way of trading
[12:24] {dino} you have to find your own style bruce.
[12:24] {bruce} understood
[12:24] {Threei} and I am a bit too old to change my personality
[12:25] {Threei} entire process of learning to trade is nothing more than process of learning what you are
[12:26] {Threei} and how to transfer this knowledge into what youi do
[12:26] {dptl} yep...i am still trying to figure that out
[12:26] {bruce} me too
[12:26] {bruce} does shallow count?
[12:27] {Threei} that would be me
[12:27] {dino} lol
[12:27] {Threei} so yes it doesa
[12:27] {bruce} damn - hoped not
[12:27] {Threei} tree good, fire bad
[12:27] {Threei} this deep wisdom is enough to trade correctly
[12:28] {Threei} profit good, loss bad - there, try to beat this
[12:28] {bruce} lol
[12:28] {Threei} now, the real shocker bruce:
[12:28] {bruce} possible reversal setup cmi dino
[12:28] {Threei} if you think the right way to trade is much different from what I just said, you are mistaken
[12:29] {Threei} it's just that it takes a lot of complications to arrive at this simplicity
[12:29] {Threei} but when things click for you, you find out that this is really that simple
[12:29] {bruce} well - starting to think I'm just cursed
[12:30] {bruce} would have quit long ago if had any brains
[12:30] {Threei} there is a good reason why dino repeats all the time "keep it simple"
[12:30] {Threei} noone is cursed
[12:30] {Threei} you are looking in a wrong place
[12:31] {Threei} and if I thought like that, I would have quit somewhere in a course of my first two years
[12:31] {Threei} what a shame that would be
[12:31] {Threei} RIMM ready again
[12:31] {bruce} you haven't noticed my knack for jinxing your own callsw?
[12:32] {Threei} nope
[12:32] {Threei} you just pick out of them
[12:32] {Threei} some work some don't
[12:32] {Threei} normal for me
[12:32] {Threei} most work as you can see easily if you go over log
[12:34] {Threei} but when you try to pick only working ones you ruin the very core of the approach
[12:34] {dino} right
[12:34] {dino} 'cause you mess w/the system
[12:34] {dino} crrc
[12:34] {bruce} I don't do that though
[12:34] {Threei} yep, tryying to beat the odds
[12:34] {Threei} no?
[12:35] {bruce} laptop is not in direct view
[12:35] {Threei} each day you follow several losing ones while skipping several winning ones
[12:35] {bruce} so sometimesw I don't see trade till after it fires
[12:35] {dino} thin
[12:35] {dino} ccrc i mean
[12:35] {Threei} didn't think you meant me
[12:35] {Threei} 'cause am not
[12:36] {Threei} but am trying
[12:36] {Threei} diet... exericise...
[12:41] {Raven} lol
[12:43] {Threei} tell me you got RIMM near 101 dino
[12:44] {dino} cmi l hl .75
[12:44] {Threei} 'cause I did... but being putz I am sold 101.65
[12:44] {dino} stop lod
[12:46] {dino} no
[12:46] {dino} cmi instead
[12:46] {Threei} :(
[12:46] {Threei} you would have held to 103
[12:46] {Threei} unlike shmuck me
[12:46] * Threei slaps dptl around a bit with a large trout
[12:46] {Threei} there... I feel better now
[12:47] {dptl} i
[12:47] {Threei} lol
[12:48] {Threei} underexploited RIMM today for some reason
[12:48] {Threei} just 3 trades
[12:48] {bruce} cmi w 113 breakand 112.50 stop dino?
[12:49] {dino} y
[12:49] {bruce} k
[12:49] {bruce} maybe i'm learning
[12:53] {Threei} argh
[12:53] {Threei} missed RIMM on dive under 102
[12:53] {Threei} wanted last scalp for the day
[12:54] {bruce} since when you starte to play stuff like rimm vad?
[12:55] {Threei} when it became readable
[12:55] {Threei} it stops I quit
[12:55] {Threei} I don't really have any preferences for stocks, I go where activity and readability is
[12:55] {Threei} and risk control within my tolerance of course
[12:56] {Threei} never could control DRYS for instance, never playing it
[12:56] {Threei} same for GOOG
[12:56] {Threei} very rarely BIDU
[12:56] {Threei} LULU was readable for a while then stopped
[12:56] {dino} frpt out flat
[12:57] {Threei} RIMM is great player these days, I am close to 80% on it
[12:57] {Threei} AAPL, AMZN same thing - sometimes can get a read on them, more often not
[12:57] {bruce} k
[12:58] {Threei} when there are no easy momo stocks, I just surf over all the usual suspects
[12:58] {Threei} if one of them shows good read, I founf my bread and butter for the time being
[12:59] {dino} cmi out .73-.02
[13:00] {Threei} ok guys, thank you
[13:00] {Threei} have a great evcening
[13:00] {Threei} see you tomorrow
[13:00] {bruce} wtg dino
[13:00] {bruce} thought you would get stopped
[13:00] {dino} had .50, but f'ck'd up
[13:00] {dino} down day, hope i didn't hurt anyone
[13:01] {bruce} it dropped below .5
[13:01] {Threei} you hurt my faith in humanity dino
[13:01] {bruce} worked ok to hold and get out at be
[13:01] {dino} i was in at .75, see above
[13:01] {bruce} yes
[13:01] {bruce} good exit
[13:02] {dino} 70$+ stocks i use about .50 on the stops
[13:02] {bruce} k
[13:02] {bruce} was thinking same
[13:02] {bruce} still pretty tight for those moves
[13:02] {bruce} they go tht fqar in 1 min candle
[13:03] {bruce} 6 down days in row for me
[13:03] {bruce} see you guys in am
[13:03] {dino} later bruce
[13:03] {bruce} yep
