Session Start: Mon Aug 25 02:52:12 2008

[08:15] {Threei} Financials: According to Heard on the Street some US investment bankers are bearish on the second half of 2008 - WSJ
[08:15] {Threei} - There are some concerns among bankers that the outlook has deteriorated further. The focus for investors remains on the damage caused by mortgage-backed securities, but investors are also looking at other areas such as commercial real estate and higher-grade residential mortgages.
[08:15] {Threei} - The article adds that continued credit-market weakness is likely to force further write-downs in Q3.
[08:16] {Threei} - WSJ believes that Lehman and Merrill are the most vulnerable to an industry slowdown.
[08:16] {Threei} - Consolidation in the investment banking sector could leave the industry with about six major full-service players.
[08:16] {Threei} - With respect to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the WSJ notes that Freddie Macs preferred shares already trade at less than half of their issue price and that suggests no preferential treatment if the government ends up bailing out the mortgage GSEs.
[08:18] {Threei} - Currently awaiting final approval from China for new 300K bpd refinery
[08:18] {Threei} - Expects to sign new contracts with oil majors by the end of 2008{USO UNG}
[08:19] {Threei} 03:17am [LDK] Reaches 1.0 GW wafer production capacity, Guides FY09 Rev $2.8-3.0B v $2.43B
[08:48] {Threei} - Note that overnight, the WSJ reported Pakistan's governing coalition is on the verge of collapse.{GLD}
[08:52] {Onix} Good morning RT
[08:52] {Threei} Good morning
[08:53] {Threei} USO is spiking
[08:53] {Threei} maybe little short UAUA
[08:54] {Threei} - also trims 2008 world growth forecast to 3.9% from 4.1%, and 2009 to 3.7% from 3.9%
[09:02] {GeoArb} gm
[09:02] {Threei} morning Geo
[09:06] {Threei} LEH looks unhealthy
[09:06] {Threei} (again)
[09:07] {Threei} 08/24/08 06:13pm
[09:07] {Threei} [LEH] Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc Summary: The latest on the potential Lehman/Korea Development Bank deal
[09:07] {Threei} - The London Times reports that the Korea Development Bank (KDB) has refused to rule out bidding for Lehman Brothers, but has hinted that any approach would not be imminent. In an interview over the weekend, KDB sought to play down an earlier statement in which it had said that it was open to an approach on the bank. "We are just at an early stage of privatization, and we are weak at investment banking by international standards. In the long term, we should strengthen that weakness," said a representative of KDB.
[09:07] {esemde} morning
[09:08] {Threei} ese :)
[09:08] {esemde} how the mighty fall.....
[09:08] {Threei} with thunder?
[09:10] {Threei} oh wake up.... this is my first attempt at humor, I need little encouragement on Monday morning
[09:10] {Threei} eyelids are too heavy
[09:11] {Onix} they fell ... "splat!"
[09:12] {Threei} like USO
[09:13] {Threei} watching UAUA reaction
[09:13] {Threei} working assumption so far is,
[09:13] {Onix} CNBC talking about second wave of credit crunch
[09:13] {Threei} uncoupling between USO and UAUA started, with negative bias for UAUA
[09:13] {Threei} we saw lat week how it weakened despite USO drop
[09:14] {Threei} so either it starts traading on its own and we have no leading indicator for it anymore,
[09:14] {Threei} or it drops with USO strength while not really goes up with USO weakness
[09:15] {Threei} Third option is, that day was a fluke, and corellation is intact
[09:15] {Threei} will see
[09:16] {dino} gm all
[09:16] {Threei} dino :)

[09:22] {Threei} as much as premarket chart can be trusted, LEH is short under .64 with stop above .80
[09:22] {Threei} opening tends to be supervolastile for it
[09:24] {cosmo} GILT seems to hold 7.50 far fwiw
[09:25] {magoo} what, laser was getting magoos share of slaps?he he
[09:25] {Threei} oh, he has enough on his own... he just didn't have you to reciprocate

[09:26] {Threei} :)
[09:27] {Threei} FNM, 4.50 breakdown is tempting short

[09:28] {Threei} hard to tell... dying days of August
[09:28] {GeoArb} anyone in LEH?
[09:28] {cosmo} dying?

[10:05] {esemde} CPSL has a good looking Daily also vad
[10:06] {Threei}
Consider Buying:
1,8 USO small shares above .15 if holding 93
[10:06] {esemde} was that a factor in buying
[10:06] {Threei} certainly
[10:06] {Threei} .15 was a break on daily

[10:06] {Threei} 5.14 high from 08/15
[10:09] {esemde} NVDA has that look on it's 15min chart......
[10:09] {Threei} USO invalidated
[10:09] {Threei} don't see much enthusiasm on UAUA though

[14:31] {Threei} now that listeds are populated withECNs mostly, same thing
[14:31] {magoo} read on LDK vad?
[14:31] {Onix} ty
[14:32] {Threei} set routing to ISLD, make sure you have route out checked, you will bet practically same wxecutions
[14:32] {Threei} I don't have read on it mags, sorry
[14:32] {Threei} listless chart
[14:32] {Onix} ty
[14:33] {dino} onix, i play them, just notice more slippage of hard stops
[14:34] {peterg} hard as opposed to manual?
[14:34] {peterg} i.e. entered as order for future
[14:34] {dino} y
[14:34] {peterg} tks
[14:34] {Threei} what your stops are routed through dino?
[14:34] {Threei} if you can see that
[14:35] {dino} smartes/schwab cyber
[14:36] {Threei} do you have an option to switch to particular route instead of smart?
[14:36] {dino} not for shorts
[14:37] {Threei} OK... probably that's why, smart routes are a bit less efficient
[14:37] {dino} overall, works fine, just listed i manually hit
[14:38] {Threei} yup... and most likely no noticeable difference on NASDAQ
[14:38] {Threei} between manual and hard I mean
[14:39] {dino} correct
[14:46] {peterg} etymological derivation of "hard" for this usage, pls?
[14:46] {peterg} fingers are soft?
[14:47] {Threei} hardwired vs mental?
[14:47] {dino} when i say hadr stop, i mean it is entered
[14:47] {peterg} I get that, i am asking philosophical question.
[14:47] {peterg} historical type
[14:47] {Threei} dino... he thinks we can read, you see
[14:48] {peterg} how does this linquistic usage arise?
[14:48] {dino} i'm lost
[14:48] {peterg} who started saying hard stop?
[14:48] {peterg} you, dino?
[14:48] {dino} books and traders years ago
[14:48] {Threei} no, that's common definition
[14:49] {peterg} that would qualify as source, but we don't know what the appeal of "hard" was
[14:49] {peterg} ill shutup
[14:50] {Threei} lol
[14:50] {dino} remember peter, i try not to think, rather react
[14:50] {Threei} I pretend that I try not to think... in rality it comes quite naturally tome
[14:50] {peterg} good point
[14:50] {Threei} just like bad typing
[14:51] {peterg} I tried watching mkt this am with music on headphones.
[14:51] {peterg} it seemed good.
[14:51] {peterg} jj cale
[14:51] {Threei} trading require depth of thinking of "tree good, fire bad" kind
[14:51] {Threei} requires
[14:51] {dino} magoo and i het the music at 9:30 am, all day, cnbc on mute, or sports on....
[14:51] {dino} the news w/mess w/your trades imo
[14:52] {dino} hit the music
[14:52] {Threei} I think I know the answer but I'll ask anyway... if CNBC on mute, why on at all?
[14:52] {dino} lol, right now vh1
[14:53] {dino} think about it, all pre-market cnbc talking heads were we are out of the abys
[14:53] {dino} that will screw you up
[14:54] {peterg} news business is fear business
[14:54] {dino} who knows or cares if the "lows" are in, we had a 250 point down move and they had you loading up
[14:54] {Threei} qhwen the next stage of credit crunch, bank write-offs and bankruptsies comes, taking market much lower... how are those optimists going to justify their cheerleading?
[14:54] {dino} so.....put the music on when trading
[14:55] {peterg} I likes it
[14:57] {Threei} I am not in the end of the world camp, we will bottom out and have a very nice rally
[14:57] {Threei} but we are not there yet
[14:57] {peterg} Is Bill Cara still strong on holding bullion?
[14:58] {Threei} I don't really track gold-related topics
[14:58] {dino} dk
[14:58] {Threei} if I remember correct, he was no jazzed about it for now
[14:58] {dino} and yes vad, this too will pass
[14:59] {Threei} yeah... this time
[14:59] {Threei} but honestly,
[14:59] {Threei} policies must change
[14:59] {peterg} what policies
[14:59] {Threei} USA flirts with financial disaster too close for comfort
[14:59] {dino} but in the keep it simple dino not listen to them when trading, get in "your" own zone
[15:00] {Threei} policies regarding credit, derivatives, spending
[15:00] {peterg} if we be goin down, let us be goin down tradin
[15:00] {peterg} ya yua ya live for today
[15:00] {Threei} deepening dept, free-for-all money printing
[15:00] {peterg} of course on serious note your right
[15:00] {peterg} time for serenity prayer
[15:01] {Threei} in Seinfield speak, Serenity NOW!!!
[15:01] {dino} none of it matters, just trade
[15:01] {peterg} here here to all
[15:01] {dino} they will do what they do
[15:02] {peterg} yep
[15:05] {Threei} here is an illustration to what dino says
[15:06] {Threei} had I not had this negative bias on financials, we would probably go long LEH and FNM at some point
[15:07] {Threei} [15:01] {dino} none of it matters, just trade {--- truer words were never spoken
[15:07] {dino} see, those are too crowded for my "way". too much thinking w/them
[15:07] {dino} i prefer the idiot set-ups
[15:08] {dino} watching wynn
[15:24] {Threei} if NQ finally breaks down, BRCM short for a scalp
[15:24] {Threei} bounced a bit on dropping volume, forming bear flag
[15:25] {Threei} closest resistance is.25
[15:28] {Onix} BRCM ss @ 26.09 if NQ drops?
[15:28] {Threei} no, I wouldn't chase it there
[15:28] {Threei} rather looking for a situation where NQ drops while BRCM gives little delay
[15:28] {Threei} so we can short it closer to resistance
[15:28] {Threei} keeps stop tighter
[15:29] {Onix} ok ty
[15:32] {Threei} looks like break's coming
[15:32] {Threei} in
[15:32] {Threei} .26 stop
[15:32] {Onix} in @ .19
[15:40] {Threei} quite boring day
[15:40] {Threei} happens often on Mondays, let's hope market wakes up tomorrow
[15:43] {Threei}

[15:58] {Threei} could be, last week of August
[15:58] {Threei} long weekend looming
[15:59] {Threei} anyway... we will take what we can find and wait patiently for more
