[09:00] {Threei} ABX
[09:01] {Threei} Barrick
[09:02] {Threei} lost major support
[09:02] {Threei} overall has this look and feel of big unwinding
[09:02] {Threei} gotta watch to get a feel for how it trades
[09:03] {tomg} gm all
[09:03] {Threei} tom :)
[09:08] {esemde} good morning/

[09:09] {dino} gm all
[09:09] {Threei} dino :)
[09:10] {dino} abx gold stock
[09:10] {Threei} yup, Barrick
[09:10] {dino} gold lost about 6% yesterday, thats about $60/ounce
[09:10] {Threei} not gold stock... THE gold stock :)
[09:11] {dino} hmmmm, 3i getting emotional
[09:11] {patience} i trade Barrick frequently, mostly options....Barrick broke below $48...and is in trouble. Bought puts in ABX and other golds this week
[09:11] {GeoArb} gm all
[09:11] {Threei} geo :)
[09:11] {patience} gm btw :)
[09:12] {Threei} morning patience :)
[09:12] {dino} patience, your nick should be the oracle
[09:12] {patience} nope, i just spend alot of time reading lol
[09:13] {dino} :)
[09:13] {Threei} see... I always knew it was good for you to know letters and have the skill to put them together so they form words
[09:13] {Threei} also, to read makes us speak English good
[09:15] {Threei} (poor Raven)
[09:16] {Raven}
3 {}
[09:16] {bruce} are thre options in bsc - if so shoulda bought puts a week or so back
[09:17] {Threei} better yet, on 10/052007
[09:17] {Threei} V
[09:17] {Threei} now, why would they do that
[09:20] {ThurstonHowellTheThird} gm all
[09:20] {Threei} thtt :)
[09:22] {magoo} vad, quick ?
[09:22] {bruce} big drop into support bvn yesterday dino
[09:22] {magoo} when u make call..say loss of ..99
[09:23] {magoo} are u watching and entering manually or is there som limit order auto?
[09:23] {Threei} manually
[09:23] {Threei} you can set auto via OMS I believe
[09:23] {magoo} cause i keep missing enntries
[09:23] {magoo} have to chase a little
[09:23] {Threei} this is a matter of a stock being thick enough for entry
[09:23] {magoo} 'seems they are sitting and then woosh
[09:23] {Threei} not the manual vs auto
[09:24] {Threei} if there are no bids to hit, however you send it won't make a difference
[09:24] {magoo} like JPM sh last afternoon...u said like .99..woosh
[09:24] {Threei} that's why my limits are a bit beyond the price I want
[09:24] {magoo} it went thru it to .89 in blink.. i missed
[09:24] {bruce} isn't that the way it goes mags? - the ones that really break deciseively tend to best winners
[09:25] {bruce} but don't give muchchance to enter w/out chasing
[09:25] {Threei} it's simply a matter of defining how far you are willing to chase, setting order there and adjusting your size accordingly
[09:26] {Threei} if there are shares available at better price you'll get them
[09:26] {magoo} how far do u recommend chasing?..say on that JPM
[09:26] {Threei} if not, you'll get your limit
[09:26] {Threei} and if no shares even there, oh well
[09:26] {Threei} my usual is 3-5 cents
[09:26] {magoo} ok..
[09:26] {magoo} see V spike
[09:26] {Threei} if it wooshes by I wait a little for possible bounce
[09:27] {Threei} if it continues decisively not giving me a fill I cancel
[09:27] {dino} bvn commodity stock
[09:27] {bruce} k
[09:27] {bruce} pot as well - looks like reversal candidate
[09:29] {bruce} same pattern mon
[09:29] {magoo} vad, how come we haven't been playing QID lately?
[09:29] {Threei} you've seen much pattern following in NASDAQ chart? :)
[09:30] {dino} nov interesting, apol watching
[09:30] {bruce} k
[09:31] {dino} ibn downgrade
[09:31] {Threei} watching ABX bounce with idea of short at 43.05
[09:31] {Threei} 43 limit for order
[09:31] {Threei} if sets up from here stop above .30
[09:31] {bruce} crox vad
[09:32] {Threei} got .05

[09:36] {dino} sit him in the clink for a year before deciding what to do
[09:36] {GeoArb} really....
[09:36] {Chaeron} GM all
[09:36] {Threei} chaeron :)
[09:36] {cosmo} espionage is the worlds second oldest profession...

[09:37] {Threei} 07:01am [IDMI] Reports Q4 -$0.11 v -$0.26e, R $5.6M v $3.2M
[09:38] {Threei} couldn't read re-entry for ABX, bounce was a bit too wide
[09:40] {Threei} MF .50 break short
[09:40] {Threei} over .65 invalidated
[09:41] {Threei} .61 stop
[09:42] {magoo} in that
[09:42] {Chaeron} here too
[09:42] {magoo} if bruce is also..kiss of death
[09:42] {magoo} the 3 of us

[09:45] {Threei} welcome guys
[09:46] {bruce} I should just announce the ones I neter so you folks can bail immediately
[09:46] {Threei} yeah, and leave you to profit alone?
[09:46] {Threei} out balance
[09:47] {Threei} got greedy a bit
[09:47] {bruce} I'm not greedy
[09:47] {Threei} had bid for second half at .05
[09:47] {Threei} and thing bottomed at .08
[09:47] {bruce} I thought a drop to 8 was reasonable in it but gald I dumped when it started to spike
[09:48] {Threei} everyone forgot about VLNC swing trade alert from yesterday I am sure
[09:49] {bruce} ibn looks like possible long now dino
[09:50] {dino} thinking same
[09:51] {dino} no, cx that, was thinking bvn
[09:51] {dino} ibn, i want yo short near hod
[09:51] {bruce} k
[09:51] {bruce} watching it too - ibn had a spike needs to drop again
[09:52] {bruce} mon had nice dump and recovery but don't see any way to have played it
[09:52] {dino} missed
[09:53] {Threei} FDRY .70 break long
[09:55] {bruce} if fdry breaks looks like stop needs to be .57 or so - what you thinking vad?
[09:55] {Threei} watching this pullback to define stop
[09:55] {bruce} k
[09:55] {dino} gold -$30 more bucks
[09:56] {Threei} ABX 43 resistance
[09:56] {Threei} worth a shot on short side, small shares
[09:56] {Threei} stop above 43
[09:57] {Threei} with attempt to hold it for bigger move
[09:57] {dino} bvn sm l .34
[09:57] {magoo} entry?\
[09:57] {magoo} ABX entry?
[09:58] {Threei} it has no trigger
[09:58] {Threei} as close to 43 as you can get, small shares
[09:58] {Threei} so you would be comfortable with stop
[09:58] {bruce} k- wondered if you had entered it already vad
[09:58] {Threei} .73
[09:59] {Threei} and VLNC .24
[09:59] {Threei} VLNC not a day trade most likely

[10:59] {Threei} if market spikes here it's scalpable
[11:00] {tomg} ty
[11:00] {Threei} I wouldn't count on more, this one requires sizeable rally to move bigger
[11:00] {Threei} rally very well may be in cards
[11:01] {Threei} but there is no really way to tell the odds
[11:02] {tomg} have to leave soon, better stay out
[11:02] {Threei} anyone took VLNC?
[11:03] {Threei} I didn't provide timely commentary on partialing out thinking that no one did
[11:03] {Threei} let me know if there is a need

[11:05] {Threei} some sell... sme buy
[11:05] {curtisweese} oh...ok...thanks for clarifying hahahahha
[11:05] {Threei} you didn't think it was that simple, did ya? :)
[11:06] {Threei} if tyhere was such certain pattern, everyone would use it and make milions in one day
[11:07] {Threei} question remains, who would have taken the other side of their sells
[11:07] {Threei} since pattern is so certain, why would anyone buy :)
[11:07] {curtisweese} cuz me dumb

[13:43] {bruce} yes - only doing one trade at time
[13:43] {dino} ok
[13:43] {bruce} I saw nov and liked it - you had gret entry
[13:44] {dino} i prefer "lucky" entry
[13:45] {bruce} lol
[13:45] {bruce} better to be lucky than smart
[13:45] {bruce} for that matter - better to be lucky than dumb too
[13:46] {dino} better lucky than good (being good is too hard)
[13:46] {bruce} I like bad- more fun
[13:46] {dino} rrgb hod
[13:46] {Threei} or as ancient russian joke goes, better be healthy and wealthy than sick and at war
[13:47] {dino} pretty bad when the movers are buffalo wild wings and red robin burgers
[13:47] {curtisweese} l aapl here for run i hope! 130.92
[13:47] {bruce} thats a good one vad
[13:48] {dino} fwiw i am waiting sm s rrgb 38.80, purely a random area
[13:48] {Threei} hawk... VLNC :)
[13:48] {bruce} k
[13:49] {dino} on rrgb the profit ( if any ) will be luck, the stop is the skill
[13:50] {hawkfan4} :) nice move

[13:55] {dino} out eqix .90, +.40
[13:55] {bruce} yes - first hour was big
[13:56] {bruce} good for you dino - I had no guts to hold
[13:56] {dino} ty, was a pain, but worked out, gappy
[13:56] {bruce} I lost confidnece on the stall at .8
[13:57] {curtisweese} come on aapl darn me help you
[13:58] {bruce} it actually looks good to me now for a move to 58.50 or so but no way I'denter here
[13:58] {dino} problem is the drawdown to 57.55 was consistant
[13:59] {curtisweese} you need someone to enter somewhere stupid?
[13:59] {curtisweese} lol
[13:59] {bruce} yes - too much risk of big pullback her
[13:59] {bruce} lol curtis
[14:00] {curtisweese} i have a super tight stop on aapl
[14:00] {bruce} you voluntering?
[14:00] {dino} lol
[14:00] {dino} brb
[14:00] {bruce} k
[14:06] {curtisweese} doh! stupid stop hit just enough to take my order and then it bounced up! grrrrrrr
[14:06] {Threei} supertight stops tend to do that
[14:06] {curtisweese} yep
[14:09] {dino} move rrgb s to 39.24 entry
[14:09] {dino} too strong
[14:09] {bruce} any feel on esrx long break of 61.20 vad?
[14:09] {bruce} sory 61.3
[14:10] {Threei} if market continues upward, certainly
[14:10] {Threei} PPT did fantastic job keeping NQ away from dangerous 1725
[14:10] {curtisweese} l aapl 130.92
[14:11] {Threei} will they try to prop it further or will they just remain satisfied by no meltdown ahead of long weekend, who knows
[14:11] {bruce} esrx invalid now - retraced too far
[14:12] {Threei} why, as long as it's holding above 61 it's valid
[14:13] {magoo} rimm sh vad??
[14:14] {dino} maybe the 38.80 area is the spot on rrgb
[14:15] {bruce} it broke to .93 vad - wanted to see it form a smaller tighter range

[14:31] {curtisweese} it was luck on that RIMM short over the technically 4 days

[15:10] {Chaeron} curtis, we don't need to hear of your shower exploits please
[15:10] {curtisweese} lol
[15:11] {dino} geo, just got back from bus stop. not sure on cents? 1/1 r/1, shoot for $700/day
[15:11] {GeoArb} yes thats my Q
[15:12] {GeoArb} 700 can change based on position size
[15:12] {GeoArb} so you dont have a dollar goal
[15:12] {dino} yes. 700 is total daily goal, each trade is on its own
[15:13] {GeoArb} so sizing based on risk i guess
[15:13] {GeoArb} ok
[15:13] {dino} risk reward try for 1:1 min
[15:13] {GeoArb} ok
[15:13] {GeoArb} yeah i read that in vad's "boring" book
[15:13] {dino} when i say sm=smaller size, otherwise 500
[15:13] {GeoArb} ok
[15:13] {GeoArb} i am doing 100/200 rite now
[15:14] {GeoArb} i had seen the vids.... so the book was an easier read
[15:14] {GeoArb} thanks dino
[15:14] {dino} yes, sizing on risk, you watch some of the crazy ones i play. i am a contrarian, and i don't mind thin vol.
[15:14] {GeoArb} ok
[15:15] {dino} i'm looking for 2 buck ranges or better
[15:15] {GeoArb} whats up with MS?
[15:15] {GeoArb} ok
[15:15] {GeoArb} daily range
[15:15] {dino} y
[15:16] {dino} prefer fast 2 buck range
[15:16] {GeoArb} ok
[15:16] {GeoArb} yeah for me countertrend is advanced level
[15:17] {GeoArb} will wait on those :D
[15:17] {dino} find your edge, manage the risk, be consistant, and keep it simple
[15:18] {GeoArb} KIS brought me here
[15:18] {dino} ahhh
[15:18] {GeoArb} i was trying to scalp futures using complex methodologies last one year
[15:18] {GeoArb} wasted a year
[15:18] {dino} hardest thing for me lately is waiting 20 minutes in the a.m.
[15:19] {dino} moves are not true enough
[15:19] {GeoArb} ok so you start after 20 mins....
[15:19] {GeoArb} all stocks open and stabilize
[15:19] {dino} yes, i do much better that way
[15:19] {dino} some days magoo has 3 trasdes in before i start
[15:20] {GeoArb} i am in west coast.... so have to trade only forst half
[15:20] {dino} i guess i'm slow
[15:20] {dino} its all individuals edge, i start slow
[15:21] {GeoArb} surge
[15:21] {GeoArb} in fins
[15:26] {dino} bruce, we should have been watching fmcn

[15:52] {Threei} how many troubles can you squeeze in 4 days
[15:52] {dino} cov rrgb .14, +.10, thats it
[15:52] {Threei} panicking sellers are hitting them patience?
[15:53] {patience} i guess
[15:53] {patience} i still expect gold to go down bit more
[15:54] {dino} i'm expecting more chaos all over
[15:54] {lumdus} oil also and then all banks recover and we forget what happened . And then Clinton become president and we forget everyting.
