[08:32] {Threei} - Prior Unit Labor Costs revised from 2.6% to 2.8%
[08:33] {Threei} ENZN
[08:33] {Threei} REPORTS Q1 $0.03 V -$0.09E, R $ 48.8MV $45ME
[08:35] {magoo} morning
[08:35] {Threei} good morning
[08:36] {hawkfan4} good morning all
[08:36] {Threei} hawk :)
[08:38] {Onix} Morning you 5
[08:38] {magoo} whats with FWLT vad
[08:39] {Threei} 06:45am [FWLT] Reports Q1 $0.85 v $0.73e, R $1.80B v $1.48Be
[08:41] {Onix} Hi Vad, any advice please for someone who only has the first hour and the last hour of the market to trade?
[08:42] {Threei} nothing drastically different... take valid setups, stay away from emotional entries...
[08:42] {Threei} you do things by the book, profit will follow
[08:43] {Threei} stay away from slow ones that are not likely to resolve within your limited time window
[08:43] {Onix} Thanks. You don't often trade @ end of day?
[08:43] {Threei} depends on if there is something to trade
[08:44] {Threei} I change my activity and aggresiveness level depending on time of the day,
[08:44] {Threei} but there is no fast rule that forbids trading at this or that time
[08:44] {Threei} valid setup will get me into trade
[08:45] {Threei} really?
[08:45] {Onix} May I bother you and ask here if there is anything worthwhile to trade when I come in for lunch @ last hour?
[08:46] {Threei} sure... but trust me, I report all my findings to the room :)
[08:46] {Threei} it's highly unlikely that I have something, keep it to myself and will share only on demand :)
[08:47] {Onix} Thanks
[08:47] {Threei} sometimes I feel particularly evilish of course
[08:48] {Onix} no, i don't believe that one
[08:48] {Threei} but I usually am able to manifest it in slapping dave
[08:48] {Threei} which brings desirable relief
[08:48] {Onix} yes, I have noticed you slapping Dave quite often with a trout?
[08:48] {Threei} yup
[08:48] {Threei} try it, it's fun
[08:49] {Onix} lol
[08:49] {Threei} - Lenders should consider mortgage writedowns
[08:49] {Threei} - Fed encouraging mortgage loss mitigation
[08:49] {Threei} - Home vacancies have negative effects on cities
[08:49] {Threei} - Urges congress to pass Fannie and Freddie regulator bill
[08:49] {fernp} good morning
[08:49] {Threei} fernp :)
[08:51] {Onix} since when is it the government's job to bail out investment banks and real estate companies?
[08:51] {Threei} that's a very good question
[08:52] {Threei} another good question is why Fed saves economy and ignores inflatiuon while controlling inflation is its major mandate
[08:52] {Threei} or why do they "save economy" by pumping more free money in the system that is already crumbling under weigth of debt
[08:52] {Onix} it all seems far more like a prop-up rather than solutions
[08:53] {Threei} very much so
[08:53] {Threei} and the chain is painfully obvious:
[08:54] {Onix} chain?
[08:54] {Threei} pump more money and cut rates - kill dollar - raise commodity prices - increase inflationary pressure even more by rising prices of oil, food etc
[08:55] {Onix} does not make a lick of sense
[08:55] {Threei} no... but that's what they are doing
[08:55] {Onix} one has to ask: who gains in these situations?
[08:55] {Threei} can we hope they have master plan that we just don't understand yet?
[08:56] {Threei} or it's more likely that they simply pour water whereevr more fire is right now?
[08:56] {Onix} that must be it
[08:56] {Onix} crisis management
[08:57] {Onix} goverment becoming a huge fire brigade
[08:57] {Threei} which is fancy word for "let's save out behind today, damn the consequences tomorrow"
[08:58] {Threei} the only silver lining that I see is,
[08:59] {esemde} morning all..dp fern hawk mags onix tom...back in victoria...and ready to roll ....sort of
[08:59] {Threei} talk about $200 oil became so wqidely accepted, we have a chance to see market once again doing the least expected thing
[08:59] {Threei} ese :)
[08:59] {esemde} hey Vad....
[08:59] {Onix} we think it's gonna run up huge and then it plunges?

[10:41] {Chaeron} good morning all
[10:41] {Threei} chaeron :)
[10:42] {esemde} hmmmmmm as Vad would say...sometimes you are the windshield and sometimes you are the bug....if DTV drifts any lower i become the bug...
[10:43] {tomg} any read rimm, vad?
[10:43] {Roman} 21 out SOLF +.23
[10:43] {Threei} up... but I have no entry
[10:43] {Threei} nice catch Roman
[10:44] {esemde} Vad let me ask you something.....did I hold onto it to long....should I have taken it when it was .98
[10:44] {Threei} 134 seems to be in cards easy
[10:44] {Threei} in hindsight, yes... but you know how much that is worth :)
[10:45] {esemde} true
[10:45] {Roman} 21 out CPHD +.23
[10:45] {Threei} see, my wway to play this kind of things:
[10:45] {esemde} well its a good trade am sticking to the rules....still have the stop in there......ya never know i guess
[10:45] {Threei} this is agressive entry on daily chart, right before major resistance break at 27,
[10:46] {Threei} but such breaks are iffy in a sense:
[10:46] {Threei} if they occur, they tend to catapult stock,
[10:46] {Threei} if rejected, it dies
[10:46] {Threei} so with aggressive entry, when tock comes to such resistance,
[10:46] {Threei} I prefer to take half off the table
[10:46] {Threei} and keep half for possible break, to maximize profit
[10:47] {Threei} while first sale protects what I already got in case break is rejected
[10:47] {esemde} so maybe i should have gone full lot....
[10:48] {esemde} opps...stopped .68.......-.14

[13:59] {Threei} jerky market - stay with scalps
[13:59] {Threei} especially in situation like this, where you go against the grain
[13:59] {Threei} RIMM established powerful downtrend, long for bounce is just a scvalp
[14:00] {Threei} that's why you sasw me partialling and holsding on short while jumping out of the water rather quickly on long
[14:05] {magoo} bounce here vad?
[14:07] {magoo} in .48
[14:07] {Threei} yup, valid play
[14:07] {Threei} stop under .30
[14:08] {magoo} bounce asapl .50
[14:08] {dino} sm l calm .14
[14:09] {Chaeron} in RIMM .48 too
[14:09] {magoo} OY
[14:09] {Chaeron} kiss of death?
[14:10] {magoo} most likely
[14:10] {Chaeron} short it then
[14:10] {magoo} ufirst
[14:12] {Threei} come on RIMM{ reverse already
[14:13] {magoo} asapol too
[14:14] {magoo} steel tore vad
[14:15] {Threei} nope
[14:16] {Chaeron} -.26 stopped RIMM
[14:17] {dino} last try l sm fwlt .00
[14:20] {magoo} that sucked
[14:20] {Threei} ?
[14:22] {Threei} what did?
[14:23] {dino} stopped
[14:31] {dino} pretty fast 100 pt drop dji
[14:32] {Threei} oil over 123
[14:32] {Threei} gold 871, down 6.5
[14:32] {Threei} disconnects are everywhere
[14:38] {Threei} did govt announced a war somewhere and forgot to tell us?
[14:39] {dino} nah, not this time
[14:49] {Threei} US SENATE DEMOCRATS PROPOSE 25% WINDFALL PROFITS TAX AND END TO $17B IN TAX BREAKS TO OIL FIRMS- Energy bill would halt SPR fill, require CFTC to boost margin requirement for oil futures.
[14:52] {Threei} so, anyone sees anything warranting this panic?
[14:54] {dino} well, i see the price of oil rising on this\
[14:55] {dino} think carter did the same thing in the 70's, widfall profit tax, etc
[14:57] {dino} ok, back in 10, hard stop calm .88
[14:58] {Chaeron} I'm moving to Canada - not as socialistic
[14:59] {Threei} you'd think so
[15:00] {Threei} *MARCH CONSUMER CREDIT: $15.3B V $6.0BE
- prior revised from $5.2B to $6.5B
[15:02] * Threei slaps CFTC around a bit with barrel of oil and gold bulllion
[15:13] {Threei} wake up guys, it's boring to watch this show alone
[15:13] {Threei} I run out of popcorn
[15:14] {dino} zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
[15:14] {Threei} I'll take that
[15:15] {_aosdaveg} i see CNBC is doing the challenge again
[15:15] {Threei} they recycle their list of useless things to do?
[15:16] {Onix} any good short candidates?
[15:16] {dino} pretty much, thats why volume is off
[15:16] {dino} thinking long onix, fwiw
[15:16] {Threei} I would be very hesitant to short here onix
[15:17] {Onix} is this a good time to ask why you say that?
[15:17] {Threei} selloff feels really overextended for the day
[15:17] {Threei} not to say it cannot continue,
[15:17] {Onix} OK ty
[15:18] {Threei} but it's about odds and risk, right?
[15:18] {Threei} odds diminish with each next leg down,
[15:18] {Threei} risk increases
[15:19] {Onix} sometimes it feels as if I still have too much to learn
[15:19] {Threei} add all patterns of late,
[15:19] {Threei} which were rather on a side of sudden reverses
[15:19] {Threei} than continuation
[15:19] {Threei} if times have changed, I want to see it first, before committing
[15:20] {dino} just think opposit onix, most of what is ingrained from cnbc is wrong
[15:20] {Onix} some light is breaking through the fog on my few brain cells now
[15:20] {dino} down big, i look long, up big i look short....i'm a simple main
[15:21] {dino} man
[15:21] {Onix} contrary I would say
[15:21] {dino} vad is right tho, always think probabilities, thats all it really is
[15:21] {dino} :)
[15:21] {Threei} sorry onix, I have to ask this
[15:22] {Onix} what about the trend is your friend?
[15:22] {Threei} [15:20] {Onix} ... my few brain cells now
[15:22] {Threei} you have breain cells? even few? you are Einstein here then
[15:22] {Threei} because I decisively refuse to have any
[15:22] {Onix} Vad, sometimes it feels as if I', short quite a number of brain cells
[15:22] {Threei} they really get in the way of trading
[15:22] {dino} pretty good drop ufpt
[15:23] {Onix} lol
[15:23] {Onix} what about URBN
[15:23] {Threei} trend IS your friend... until it reverses
[15:23] {dino} for me, no, want fast drop
[15:23] {Threei} and we don't see much in terms of trends lately
[15:24] {Onix} so true hey
[15:24] {Threei} what we see for the most part is sudden and vicious reversals
[15:24] {Threei} it will change of course,
[15:24] {Threei} but you don;'t want to guess when it does,
[15:24] {Threei} by trying and risking your money.
[15:25] {Threei} You stay with the way things shape up until market proves you change came
[15:25] {Threei} what we see today is atypical vs last month or two,
[15:25] {Threei} so what do you see me doing?
[15:25] {Onix} going long
[15:25] {Threei} taking the safest trades possible, and decerasing activity
[15:25] {dino} yammering
[15:25] {Threei} tight dino, that too
[15:26] {dino} :)
[15:26] {Threei} look at our wins and stops today
[15:26] {Onix} i'm learning ...
[15:26] {Threei} wins are anywhere from 30 to 80 cents
[15:26] {Threei} stops are 15-20
[15:26] {Threei} sure, such management keeps us out of many trades
[15:26] {Threei} and increases shakeouts
[15:26] {Threei} so what?
[15:27] {dino} ok only 94 pts to go
[15:27] {Onix} will look through it all this evening
[15:27] {Onix} the daily log
[15:28] {Threei} you know where it's posted everyday
[15:28] {Onix} sure do
[15:28] {Threei} for all world to see how few brain cells if any we have
[15:29] {_aosdaveg} mkt just went flush
[15:29] {Threei} just?
[15:29] {Threei} where have you been last 2 hours?
[15:29] {Onix} flush with what?
[15:29] {Onix} 200?
[15:29] {Onix} -200
[15:30] {Threei} flush as in "down the drain"
[15:30] {Onix} oh flushed
[15:31] {Threei} dave is thinking toilets, you know
[15:31] {Threei} you just don't know him much :)
[15:31] {_aosdaveg} lol
[15:31] {Onix} lol
[15:31] {_aosdaveg} that may be a good thing
[15:41] {Threei} last one for today if you feel like risking 15-20 cents
[15:41] {Threei} RIMM .61 long
[15:41] {Threei} .40 support for stop placement
[15:42] {Threei} not holding
[15:44] {Threei} if held through shakeout, 1:1 hit
[15:45] {Threei} Onix... see how violent reversal is?
[15:46] {Onix} i'm whatching!
[15:46] {Threei} good sign: your spelling is getting worse
[15:46] {Threei} widely considered a necessity for traders
[15:47] {Onix} short overings?
[15:47] {Threei} kind of bad handwriting for doctors
[15:47] {Onix} coverings
[15:47] {Threei} mix of bounce players and short covering
[15:48] {Threei} envision yourself being a short player, facing these relentless rallies of late,
[15:48] {Threei} PPT ramping markets up in face of bad news
[15:48] {Onix} "house of pain!"
[15:48] {Threei} and ask yourself: would you risk staying short overnight?
[15:49] {Onix} never again!
[15:49] {Threei} so they prefer to get out and start tomorrow anew
[15:49] {Threei} can't blame them really, it wasn't easy ride for short side
[15:49] {Onix} wise
[15:50] {Threei} a lot are short from mid March
[15:50] {Threei} praying to get even
[15:50] {Threei} just as described in
[15:50] {Onix} praying helps?
[15:50] {Threei} not to my knowledge
[15:51] {_aosdaveg} no, it doesn't
[15:51] {Threei} if your trading toolbox came to prayers, you are seriously on a wrong side
[15:51] {_aosdaveg} beleive me
[15:51] {Onix} i believe you
[15:52] {Onix} wrong for too long and you are out for the count
[15:52] {Threei} at this point everyone is scared equally, longs and shorts
[15:52] {Threei} so we get these hectic movements
[15:53] {Threei} honestly, I don't know how anyone but day traders can play this market of last couple months or so
[15:53] {Threei} I get quite a few e-mails from swing and long term traders
[15:53] {Threei} way more than usual
[15:53] {Onix} tried swing but lost too many times
[15:54] {Threei} anyway guys... decent day
[15:54] {Threei} not as spectacular as yesterday but solid
[15:55] {Threei} do we have any major earnings today?
[15:55] {Threei} lemme look
[15:55] {Onix} thanks Vad .. I learned a little
[15:55] {dino} out calm .19, +.05
[15:56] {Threei} nope, just a pocket change, no major players
[15:57] {Threei} thank you all
[15:57] {Threei} have a great evening, see you tomorrow
[15:57] {Onix} bye
[15:57] {dino} cya vad
[15:58] {_lisa_jay} Thanks Threei.
[15:58] {Threei} :)
[16:00] {fernp} see you tomorrow. Good afternoon
