[10:32] {esemde} I get this "somebody knows something " feeling about nuan
[10:33] {Threei} scary trade, for adrenalin deprived: POT
[10:33] {Threei} likely to go to 200 and break it
[10:33] {Threei} volatility is enormous
[10:34] {esemde} indeed
[10:34] {Threei} no exact call, see if you can get a read on it, stay away if not
[10:34] {Roman}
21 ANKS & JASO near highs
[10:35] {Threei} SOLF too
[10:35] {Threei} ENER near support
[10:35] {esemde} POT from my home province Saskatchewan
[10:36] {magoo} in .44

[10:57] {Threei} plus general climate in food/fertilizers
[11:02] {Roman}
21 out JASO
[11:04] {Threei} I guess NFLX meteoric rise can be attributed to people being so disgusted with reality, they just want to get as many videos as they can and sit and watch them
[11:05] {GeoArb} lol
[11:05] {esemde} I would go along with that Vad
[11:05] {esemde} At least thats what the New Robert Redford film "Lions For Lambs" is all about...

[11:27] {GeoArb} in
[11:27] {Threei} it did go over .30, no?
[11:28] {GeoArb} well i am sure some people might not have taken the sugesstion :)
[11:28] {Threei} that's discretionary
[11:28] {GeoArb} i am flat... had left the screen so asking
[11:28] {Threei} risk is increased
[11:28] {esemde} outta here for the day all....
[11:28] {Threei} as resistance now is farther from trigger
[11:28] {GeoArb} also wasnt a decisive break
[11:28] {Threei} take care ese
[11:29] {esemde} see ya vad
[11:31] {magoo} altr vad..aren't u thinking it hols too well here?
[11:31] {magoo} hold=holds
[11:31] {Threei} so far, yes
[11:31] {Threei} double top scenario didn't materialize
[11:36] {Threei} watch RIMM for bounce
[11:44] {GeoArb} tom april option exp?
[11:47] {Threei} .50 break long RIMM if stays above .35
[11:48] {Threei} not holding support
[11:49] {Threei} ALTR trying to break high... believe it or not
[11:55] {dptl} to leave ...have a good rest of the day all,seeya tomorrow :)
[11:55] {Threei} take care dp
[11:56] {dptl} 8 out of 10 today not bad
[11:56] {Threei} I'll say
[11:56] {Threei} that bad day at the start of the week helped you renew
[11:56] {Threei} sometimes need that :)
[11:57] {dptl} yeah reality check
[12:09] {Threei} ASTM
- Announced encouraging data from the first two compassionate use patients treated with the Company's autologous stem cell therapy for dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), a type of severe chronic heart failure.
[12:09] {Threei} - Aastrom is on track for submission of a U.S. Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a cardiac regeneration clinical trial using CRCs during 2008. The Company's ultimate target market for CRCs in the U.S. is 1.8 mi
[12:15] {Threei} ALTR, agggressive long .41
[12:16] {Threei} .35 support
[12:21] {Threei} CPST is highly irritating...
[12:23] {Threei} sometimes risk adversity keeps one from nice trades... couple dasys ago I was on a brink of calling DYII swing trade at 5.10
[12:24] {Threei} then decided it was crazy to go into swings in this masrket
[12:24] {Threei} crying now
[12:40] {Threei} everyone's asleep?
[12:41] {GeoArb} oh just waiting for you to finish crying
[12:41] {GeoArb} didt want to be rude
[12:41] {magoo} here
[12:41] {hawkfan4} half sleeping
[12:45] {Threei} i appreciate the sensitivity geo
[12:45] {Threei} ALTR invalidated
[12:51] {Threei} aimless wandering in the market'
[12:55] {Threei} AMZN
[12:55] {Threei} 74 break long
[12:55] {Threei} if stays above .90
[12:56] {Threei} 73.80 is a short trigger if it can't break olut
[12:57] {Threei} a bit too far from resistance, so be careful not to short into fast drop
[12:58] {Threei} take a look at 11:40 - 11:57 period to see what mean,
[12:58] {Threei} sharp drops into support followed by bounces
[12:59] {Threei} hunterlayne, you here?
[13:00] {Threei} FRE
[13:01] {Threei} hmmm... mortgages become attractive buy?
[13:03] {Threei} I can sell mine to FRE... or whoever
[13:04] {GeoArb} stopped AMZN
[13:06] {_hunterlayne} Here
[13:06] {_hunterlayne} what ticker are you suggesting at 73.80
[13:06] {Threei} you wanted to ask something about RT yesterday?
[13:06] {_hunterlayne} not really, I just wanted to socialize and get to know the few people that were in the chat room
[13:06] {_hunterlayne} I'm seeing if I'm interested in this
[13:06] {Threei} OK... they are not usually here that late :)
[13:07] {Threei} that was about AMZN... didn't really show any setup either way
[13:07] {_hunterlayne} haha, yea I figured
[13:07] {Threei} invalidated long by losing support, then did the same to short
[13:07] {GeoArb} hmmm i missed that
[13:07] {GeoArb} paid for it
[13:08] {Threei} it lost .90 twice before breaking 74 geo
[13:08] {Threei} on volatile stock, sometimes little loss of support is OK,
[13:08] {GeoArb} what can i say.........
[13:08] {Threei} but twice - nah
[13:08] {GeoArb} :)
[13:08] {Threei} I don't know... if you are watching a stock for setup, are you really watching it? :)
[13:09] {GeoArb} yup .88 .89
[13:09] {_hunterlayne} The only problem I have is that I'm in college and I have lots of school work
[13:09] {Threei} hmmm
[13:09] {_hunterlayne} and day trading (since I gained access to my account) has been fairly distracting lol
[13:09] {Threei} maybe it's a good idea to finish a college first? :)
[13:10] {Threei} I don't want to present an obstacle on your way to education
[13:10] {_hunterlayne} haha, you aren't I promise
[13:10] {Threei} not telling you what to do of course
[13:10] {_hunterlayne} I already have my acceptance into dental school in the bag.. so don't worry
[13:10] {Threei} just offering options :)
[13:11] {Threei} OK, you know your situation better than anyone else
[13:11] {Threei} so... Seifield was right, and dentists do have their own schools?
[13:12] {_hunterlayne} Yup
[13:12] {_hunterlayne} I haven't seen that episode, but yes we do have 'Dental Schools'
[13:12] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large trout
[13:13] {Threei} find it... funny one
[13:13] {ThurstonHowellTheThird} I think magoo is an anti-dentite
[13:13] {Threei} he certainly is
[13:13] {_hunterlayne} lol
[13:14] {_hunterlayne} What are your thoughts on RBCN, Vad?
[13:15] {Threei} volume is way too low to structure any play intraday
[13:15] {Threei} kind of "trades by appointment"
[13:16] {Threei} by daily chart, 25 is critical junction for it
[13:17] {Threei} if it comes to 25 slowly, consolidates a little and breaks, has a good chance for recovery
[13:17] {_hunterlayne} I'll keep that in mind
[13:18] {Threei} and for any pattern to become more reliable on it, it needs real volume
[13:18] {_hunterlayne} Were you guys around for Bear Stearns??
[13:18] {Threei} we watched in awe
[13:18] {Threei} lol
[13:18] {_hunterlayne} loll
[13:18] {_hunterlayne} me too
[13:18] {_hunterlayne} I wish I would have bought when it bottomed out.. I was so close
[13:19] {Threei} wait... what was it that we shorted
[13:19] {Threei} and rode down like 15 points
[13:19] {Threei} Geo, you played it
[13:19] {Threei} was it BSC or something elsea?
[13:19] {GeoArb} yeah
[13:19] {Threei} ahha
[13:19] {GeoArb} only 6 points though
[13:19] {GeoArb} that has been paying for all my misakes this week
[13:19] {Threei} well... can't really blame you for covering that monster too soon, lol
[13:20] {GeoArb} yeah i was scared
[13:20] {Threei} who would have thought thing could tank like that
[13:20] {_hunterlayne} lol yea, wayy too risky. I just left it as personal entertainment
[13:21] {Threei} that was the day before its infampus gapo to 2, right?
[13:21] {GeoArb} glad i closed
[13:22] {Threei} why... if you held, you would have made a history
[13:22] {Threei} probably got invetsigated by SEC too
[13:22] {GeoArb} could have gone either way :)
[13:22] {GeoArb} not for 200 shares
[13:22] {_hunterlayne} Vad, citibank?
[13:22] {Threei} wrong... they won't touch one who did million... but small time trader, let's get him
[13:23] {_hunterlayne} tell me whats wrong/right with it right now
[13:23] {Threei} I've no idea
[13:23] {Threei} you know... steal a million, you are an enterpreneur... steal 100 bucks, you are criminal
[13:24] {GeoArb} yeah kill one guy youre a murderer
[13:24] {GeoArb} kill milions
[13:24] {GeoArb} Alexander the great
[13:24] {Threei} right
[13:24] {Threei} hunter... all banks/financials are pretty much gamble right now
[13:25] {Threei} financial situation, credit problems, liquidity problems are very serious
[13:25] {_hunterlayne} I meant Citigroup
[13:25] {_hunterlayne} sorry
[13:25] {Threei} what general public sees in a form of subprime crisis is just a tip of iceberg
[13:26] {Threei} will Fed/goverment be able to prevent the total colapse or not, is open question
[13:26] {GeoArb} you guys heard about the LIBOR and how all banks might be lieing?
[13:26] {Threei} and if they will, it still doesn't mean there won't be a failed bank here and there
[13:26] {GeoArb} WSJ article yesterday
[13:26] {Threei} yes Geo
[13:27] {Threei} LIBOR is not confirming what they say
[13:27] {Threei} it's being said by different analysts over last month or so
[13:27] {GeoArb} also peole not trusting LIBOR
[13:27] {GeoArb} as banks not reporting the correct borrowing rate
[13:27] {GeoArb} as it tells everyone they were desparate
[13:28] {Threei} on the other side of equation,
[13:28] {Threei} intervention in BSC fiasco shows to what depth powers that be are willing to go in order to prevent systemic failure
[13:28] {GeoArb} as a freind of mine said..... forget gold and silver.....
[13:29] {GeoArb} the only metal that matters is lead lol
[13:29] {Threei} lol
[13:29] {Threei} reminds me old Soviet joke

[13:41] {Threei} wtg
[13:41] {Threei} icon on our website hunter
[13:41] {_hunterlayne} ohh yea, that's right
[13:46] {Threei} FED'S FISHER: 'STRONG RELUCTANCE' TO MORE MONETARY EASING, 'INFLATING OUR WAY OUT' OF THE MESS NOT THE ANSWER- Notes using discount window tools is an answer, and Fed aims to 'prudently restore efficacy'
[13:47] {Threei} do I hear some actual comkon sense from feds?
[13:49] {Threei} market really stuck
[13:49] {_hunterlayne} for real
[13:49] {_hunterlayne} boring
[13:49] {Threei} NFLX continues making new highs
[13:49] {Threei} a bit too thin for a safe trade
[13:50] {GeoArb} nice BK
[13:50] {GeoArb} in since 42.74
[13:50] {GeoArb} only 200 though
[13:50] {GeoArb} trying to erase AMZN blooper
[13:50] {Threei} so you guys are taking trades and holding out on us?
[13:51] * Threei slowly unholsters the trout
[13:51] {GeoArb} if i had conviction.....
[13:51] {GeoArb} i would tell em al
[13:51] {_hunterlayne} lol
[13:51] {GeoArb} pls pls
[13:51] {GeoArb} its still at a good point vad :)
[13:53] {Threei} you are safe hunter
[13:54] {_hunterlayne} lol
[13:54] {Threei} RIMM small long closer to .50
[13:54] {Threei} seems to be locked for a while between .50 and 119
[13:58] {_hunterlayne} are you going to get in?
[13:59] {_hunterlayne} if so, where at exactly
[13:59] {Threei} too far from support
[13:59] {Threei} not chasing it
[14:00] {Threei} it moves between 118.5 and 119 for a while, what's the point in buying that closer to upper l,imit
[14:01] {_hunterlayne} true
[14:03] {_hunterlayne} I might short NFLX
[14:04] {Threei} why?
[14:04] {fernp} the market is too quiet
[14:05] {Threei} could be quiet before the storm
[14:05] {Threei} or could be taking a breather after yesterday's stunning rally
[14:06] {_hunterlayne} breather
[14:06] {_hunterlayne} what's the most anyone here has made in 1 day
[14:06] {patience} scalping or swing trade
[14:07] {_hunterlayne} scalping
[14:08] {Threei} magoo fell asleep.. or he would have told you some impressive numbers
[14:08] {Threei} he is risk taker though
[14:08] {GeoArb} i would be interested to see the answers :)
[14:08] {patience} i was going to say, used to love watching magoo trade on momo fridays we used to have
[14:08] {magoo} market has long changed
[14:09] {GeoArb} i only saw curtis
[14:09] {GeoArb} you banned him vad?
[14:09] {magoo} we don't get the momo anymore
[14:09] {patience} i agree magoo
[14:09] {Threei} we will
[14:09] {Threei} things go in cycles
[14:09] {magoo} but, since u asked...on BIDU ipo...i scalped 12k in 1 day
[14:09] {_hunterlayne} wow
[14:09] {_hunterlayne} you guys do alot of IPOs?
[14:10] {magoo} no
[14:10] {GeoArb} i am just awed
[14:10] {GeoArb} you touched BIDU IPO
[14:10] {magoo} just happened to be THE ONE
[14:11] {_hunterlayne} what range of prices do your scalps usually consist of?? do you have a set number, or do you take green as much as possible
[14:12] {Threei} huinter... too invloved
[14:12] {Threei} this is not something answered in a framework of room discussion
[14:12] {magoo} laser dcc
[14:12] {_hunterlayne} k, sorry. won't happen again
[14:13] {Threei} nothing to be sorry about :)
[14:13] {Threei} it's just that we have structured system of educational materials
[14:13] {Threei} books, videos, courses
[14:14] {Threei} kind of hard to squeeze their content in QA format here as you sure understand :)
[14:14] {_hunterlayne} I completely understand
[14:17] {markweb} RIMM in.55 out .85 Thanks Vad
[14:18] {Threei} perfect
[14:18] {Threei} I was waiting to see who heeded and utilized
[14:18] {markweb} ty
[14:19] {Threei} good job mark
[14:19] {markweb} stop was @.38
[14:20] {magoo} LASERDAVE DCC
[14:21] * Chaeron slaps Laserdave1 around a bit with a large trout
[14:22] {magoo} everyone, i haveafternoon to go soon
[14:22] {Chaeron} c ya bro
[14:22] {GeoArb} bye magoo
[14:22] {_hunterlayne} Bye bye now
[14:30] {Threei} hopefully action picks up last hour
[14:31] {Threei} for now it's a one=legged snail trying to navigate molasses
[14:31] {Threei} are there two-legged snails?
[14:32] {markweb} WM Vad?
[14:33] {Threei} I'd try it long if it touches .40, retreats, holdsa .30 or so and breaks
[14:33] {markweb} ty
[14:33] {Threei} alternatively, conolidates a bit betwen .30 and day high
[14:33] {Threei} then breaks
[14:35] {Threei} RIMM starts consolidating closer to 119
[14:35] {Threei} if continues doing this not trying to retreat all the way to 118.5 anymore, break will become a play
[14:35] {Threei} with market help of course
[14:38] {_hunterlayne} .43 ahhh
[14:41] {Threei} RIMM repeated range move
