[13:33] {Threei} guys, while we are waiting for Big Ben to tell us where the happiness is
[13:33] {Threei}
[13:42] {Threei} full room of sleeping beauties...
[13:42] * Threei slaps Laserdave1 around a bit with a large trout
[13:50] * Chaeron slaps Laserdave1 around a bit with a large trout
[13:51] {Threei} CSIQ unusually strong
[13:51] {Threei} not sure what gives... FSLR retreated, market too
[13:51] {Threei} usually this thing follows
[13:57] {dino} ok., dji will go to flat or slight neg., then bounce to 90, then back down,close neg.
[13:58] {patience} great post vad, just read it after finishing my daughter's income tax
[13:58] {Threei} thank you
[13:58] {patience} amount of paperwork for revenue canada is quite the reality check
[13:59] {Threei} meaning, trees be damned?
[14:00] {patience} paper for her first income tax, electronic starting next year
[14:08] {Threei} that's going to be one crazy show after Fed announcement
[14:10] {dino} hod
[14:10] {Threei} 5 min
[14:12] {Threei} playing "what I would do if I were Fed"... I'd do no cut, expressing confidence in economy, spiking USD and tanking oil
[14:12] {Threei} first knee jerk reaction would be down, then rally
[14:15] {dino} thats what i want, no change
[14:15] {Threei} me too
[14:15] {Threei} 1/4 cut
[14:15] {dino} 1/4
[14:17] {Threei} oh good... market moves in two directions at the same time
[14:17] {Threei} - Economic activity remains weak
[14:17] {Threei} - Vote was 8-2 for cut (Fisher, Plosser dissented, preferred no change in rates)
[14:17] {Threei} - Uncertainty on inflation outlook remains high, labor markets have softended, financial markets under considerable stress
[14:17] {Threei} - Notes the substantial easing of monetary policy to date should help promote moderate growth over time
[14:17] {Threei} - Inflation seen moderating but will monitor carefully
[14:19] {dino} cme 3 buck spread
[14:20] {dino} ntrs s[pike
[14:20] {dino} nah
[14:20] {Threei} - Says readings on core inflation somewhat improved, but energy, commodity prices up, some inflation expectations have risen
[14:20] {Threei} - Board vote to cut discount rate was unanimous
[14:21] {Threei} NQ chart is something
- this change in the balance of risks statement was one of the anticipated signals that the Fed is now on hold. They also added that the 'substantial' easing to dated should promote growth, again signaling that they are ready to let the cuts that are now in place to work through the economy.
[14:22] {Threei} - the rest of the statement is largely unchanged: the FOMC reiterated it will 'act as needed' to promote it
[14:23] {dino} dbtk s .58 sm, stop .81
[14:24] {Threei} SIRI AND XMSR EXTEND MERGER AGREEMENT- agreed not to exercise their rights to terminate the Merger Agreement prior to May 15, 2008. SIRIUS and XM also announced that they have agreed to further extend the merger agreement, as necessary, for rolling two week periods unless either side notifies the other of its intention not to extend.
[14:29] {dino} ok i'll say it... that's the most boring fed reaction in years
[14:30] {dino} oh mannnnnnnnnnnn, swiper. i'm glad i have a tee time in 90 minutes
[14:42] {Threei} I have to agree, this is quite unusual reaction
[14:42] {Threei} sharp spikes in both directions is normal,
[14:43] {Threei} but staying locked in relatively narrow range for so long after that is not
[14:47] {Threei} AAPL seems to be the best follower
[14:47] {Threei} when direction finally resolves, I'd use it
[14:50] {bruce} economy is stalled vad
[14:50] {bruce} without you to spend your massive nigerian wealth we're all doomed
[14:50] {bruce} recession
[14:50] {bruce} depression
[14:51] {Threei} hmmm
[14:51] {Threei} see, here is the problem
[14:51] {Threei} I spent it, even before I obtained it
[14:52] {dino} back in 15
[14:54] {Threei} watching AAPL for bounce scalp

[15:03] {bruce} wicked dump
[15:04] {Threei} something's causing it
[15:05] {Threei} feels like there is some development we don't know about yet
[15:06] {Roman} 21 RIMM dumping
[15:06] {Threei} what isn't? :)
[15:08] {bruce} indeed
[15:09] {Threei} could it be this:
[15:09] {Threei}
[15:12] {Threei} getting ready for AAPL again
[15:13] {Threei} in
[15:14] {Threei} stopped
[15:14] {bruce} too early - qs stil;l dumping
[15:14] {Threei} -.23 this time
[15:15] {bruce} now at yesterdays low in q's - bounce time here maybe?
[15:21] {dino} v. sm cme l 465.50

[15:24] {dino} y, small
[15:24] {bruce} should work
[15:24] {bruce} odds of reversal good here
[15:25] {dino} needs dji help
[15:28] {dino} not happening, cutting it loose
[15:30] {bruce} \sheesh - qs exploring lows again
[15:31] {bruce} we really need to get this economy going
[15:31] {Threei} and I am charged with it?
[15:31] {Threei} again?
[15:31] {bruce} why not have vad cut checks for all the nice people in this trade room?
[15:32] {bruce} hmm - good guess vadster
