Session Time: Fri Oct 10 00:00:00 2008

06[08:01] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large trout
[08:01] {magoo} morning
[08:01] {Threei} hi :)
[08:01] {magoo} WOW he he
[08:01] {_xzap} morning Mag, Vad, Geo, et al
[08:01] {Threei} {--- still the fastest trigger in the wild west
[08:01] {Threei} zap :)
[08:03] {magoo} vad, u MUST have a theory here for today?what u thinking/
[08:03] {Threei} I think all the theories known to humankind are out of the window at this point
[08:04] {Threei} my attitude is kind of fatalistic:
[08:04] {Threei} it will be over when it will be over
[08:04] {Threei} I am grateful to be a day trader
[08:04] {Threei} to be highly liquid
[08:04] {Threei} to have freedom of staying away and limit my exposure to hunt and peck
[08:05] {Threei} which is what we do these days
[08:05] {Threei} while waiting for a time for bigger exposure to come
[08:05] {magoo} yes, but as a daytrader we need a working theme today..just a may not play out..but you are usually good with these
[08:05] {Threei} true but I come up with those only when drunk... and I am sober right now
[08:06] {magoo} big drop at open...bounce and crash into weekeend?
[08:06] {_xzap} early gap downs: CSIQ, ENER, SPWRA, RIMM,ORCL,QCOM, AMZN, AAUK, AAPL
[08:06] {Threei} can't tell for now mags... gotta observe the action
[08:06] {Threei} two currents clash here:
[08:07] {Threei} one is, extreme fear to hold into weekend, desire to keep exposure to a minimu,
[08:07] {Threei} and this one dictates your scenario
[08:07] {Threei} another is, fear to miss some extraordinaryu intervention undertaken by desperate authorities
[08:08] {_xzap} I have a feeling this will be another "black Friday" so to speak
[08:08] {Threei} who no doubt will burn the midnight oil throughout the weekend
[08:08] {Threei} so shorts will be just as scared
[08:08] {Threei} and some of money sitting on a sideline may decide to commit a little
[08:09] {Threei} which one wins?
[08:09] {Threei} TED spread looks beyond scary
[08:10] {_xzap} I was reading up on the LIBOR rate last night, what is it now Vad ?
[08:11] {Threei} gotta look it up... I don';t have direct quote
[08:11] {Threei} DELL hasn't made new low yesterday
[08:11] {Threei} NVDA barely did
[08:12] {_xzap} DELL new low right now, 12.92. Year low 13.23
[08:13] {Threei} GM
[08:13] {_xzap} The three-month London Interbank Offered Rate, known as Libor, hit 4.75% Thursday - its highest level since December 28. Libor stood at 2.81% one month ago.
[08:14] {_xzap} so if banks won't lend to each other overnight they sure aren't lending to anyone
[08:16] {_xzap} 10:25 GW to speak
[08:16] {_xzap} I predict a selloff at 10:26
[08:16] {magoo} btw, morn xzap geodp:)
[08:17] {Threei} I would start at 10:24
[08:17] {_xzap} morning Mag
[08:19] {_xzap} the TICK closed @ -1198 y'day
[08:23] {Threei} grabbed some DELL at 13 for possible scalp
[08:24] {_xzap} EBAY gap down, new year low 15.11
[08:25] {Threei} MS dipped under 10... mama mia
[08:25] {Threei} so... does the world end?
[08:25] {Threei} Raven...?
[08:27] {_xzap} this is hard to believe.. DRYS new year low right now 18.05. Year high was131.34
[08:28] {Threei} a lot of prices are of "is it a bad dream" kind
[08:28] {Threei} -400 DOW days become just another day at the office
[08:28] {Threei} only -600 makes you look
[08:28] {_xzap} it can't be too long before these stocks start getting at least nibbled at
[08:29] {Threei} i am sure they started
[08:29] {Threei} first little drips of accumulation had their place already
[08:29] {Raven} dunno ... my cable is out so I can't listen to the wisdom from the hyperventilating news people
[08:29] {magoo} wouldn't long mutual funds find value down here?
[08:29] {Threei} just not much commitment, little nibble here and there
[08:29] {Threei} BALTIC DRY BULK INDEX -11%; THE LOWEST SINCE 1985
[08:30] {Threei} ugh Raven
[08:30] {Raven} lol
[08:30] {Threei} you know we look up to you when it comes to the end of the world
[08:30] {Threei} UG TRADE BALANCE: -$59.1B V -$59.0BE
[08:30] {Threei} - Prior revised from -$62.2B to -$61.3B
[08:30] {Raven} hey ... this is just your average once-in-a-century market crash
[08:30] {Raven} that's all
[08:31] {Threei} SEPT IMPORT PRICE INDEX M/M:-3.0 % V -2.8%E; Y/Y: 14.5% V 12.2%E
[08:31] {Threei} - Prior MoM revised from -3.7% to -2.6%
[08:31] {Threei} - Prior YoY revised from 16.0% to 18.7 %
[08:31] {hawkfan4} morning
[08:31] {Threei} hawk :)
[08:32] {Threei} true Raven, but you have more experience with ends of the world
[08:32] {Threei} MS
[08:32] {Threei} immaterial?
[08:33] {_xzap} hi hawk
[08:33] {_xzap} SPWRB gap down
[08:34] {Raven} the difference 3i ... this time ... is the existence of derivatives and the fact that the stock market is overshadowed by the international credit issues
[08:34] {_xzap} Japan's Nikkei dropped 9.6% and Hong Kong's Hang Seng fell 7.2%.
[08:34] {Raven} so nobody has a clue what will happen
[08:34] {Threei} so, unlike other times, it IS the end?
[08:35] {Raven} no ... it'll just require MASSIVE federal intervention
[08:35] {Raven} worldwide
[08:36] {Threei} gosh... they already injected so much
[08:36] {Threei} and nothing seems to stop bleeding
[08:36] {_xzap} The long-term credit ratings of Goldman Sachs (GS) and Morgan Stanley (MS) are on review for a possible downgrade at Moody's, according to
[08:37] {Raven} they obviously have not done enough yet
[08:37] {Threei} I am trying to understand this:
[08:37] {Threei} they haven't done enough yet
[08:37] {Threei} or
[08:38] {Threei} they mostly have, and it's just a lack of confidence and sheer panic that continues driving markets lower
[08:38] {Threei} I understand no one knows
[08:38] {Threei} just trying to get a feel
[08:38] {Raven} yes ... it is panic ... which is why more needs to be done and FAST
[08:39] {Raven} they can't keep farting around
[08:39] {_xzap} from what I understand, the infusion of $$ from the Fed isn't working YET because no real plan has been laid out and and implemented
[08:39] {Raven} exactly
[08:39] {_xzap} The biggest issue is see is TRUST
[08:40] {Raven} it'll take some time to develop a plan to buy the toxic assets
[08:40] {_xzap} there is no trust
[08:40] {Raven} so step in and recapitalize some banks ... NOW
[08:40] {_xzap} even though the Fed is throwing all this money into the mkt, people want to see it actually in action
[08:41] {_xzap} BTW, hi Raven, we haven't met
[08:41] {Raven} ACTION is the key word
[08:41] {Threei} MS 9
[08:42] {_xzap} another thing that will really help is to see some CEO's and executives in cuffs. Someone HAS to go to prison
[08:42] {Raven} well, good morning xzap :)
[08:42] {Threei} my first vote would be Fuld
[08:43] {Raven} lol ... at this point blame is not terribly important
[08:43] {Raven} and ... damn few of the guilty will suffer
[08:43] {_xzap} but somebody will go to prison before it's all over
[08:44] {Raven} somebody will ... but hundreds won't
[08:44] {Raven} thousands
[08:44] {Raven} ?
[08:44] {Raven} and nobody in Washington will suffer one whit
[08:45] {Threei} Mitsubishi would better hurry
[08:46] {Threei} MS seems to be on a birnk of repeating LEH fate
[08:49] {_xzap} coffee anyone [ ]}
[08:49] {Threei} black please
[08:49] {magoo} just cream
[08:52] {Threei} dumped DELL back -8 cents
[08:54] {hawkfan4} oil 82.60, break out the s.u.v's

[08:55] {_xzap} JOYG gap down
[08:56] {_xzap} top gap downs right now: SPWRB, CSIQ, JOYG, ENER, FWLT, ADBE, BUCY, DRYS

[10:47] {Threei} - Comments appear in response to Italian PM Berlusconi's suggestion that world leaders might suspend markets.
[10:47] {Threei} oh boy
[10:47] {GeoArb} whats that guy thinking saying stuff like that
[10:47] {Threei} yeah, let's suspend markets, scare the bejezus out of everyone
[10:47] {GeoArb} either do it or dont
[10:47] {Chaeron} he was short before he made the comment.....
[10:48] {Threei} so when you open them, total liquidation takes place in a matter of one hour
[10:48] {GeoArb} typical italian agitation
[10:49] {GeoArb} lol chaeron
[10:50] {Threei} OK, that was disgusting gesture by UAUA
[10:50] {GeoArb} yeah phone call worthy
[10:51] {Threei} ADBE
[10:51] {Threei} haf lot long 27.05
[10:51] {Threei} stop under .90
[10:53] {Threei} market weakens, canceling buying mini-breaks for now
[10:55] {Threei} either bounuces or shorting support breaks
[10:56] {Threei} Short Setup: DELL .34
[10:56] {Threei} stop above .50
[10:59] {Threei} should be easy to do
[10:59] {Threei} forbid selling
[10:59] {_xzap} I just did something VERY stupid and got away with it
[10:59] {GeoArb} ?
[11:00] {_xzap} I shorted MS @ 8.99, entered cover at 8.75 I thought. I actually entered $8. I let it get awat from and rode it up til$11.29 and just got out at $(
[11:01] {_xzap} I don't drink or smoke and I need both
[11:01] {_xzap} out @ $9 Imeant
[11:01] {_xzap} LOL, I can't even type
[11:01] {magoo} out ADBE .21 TY vad
[11:02] {Threei} whewre did you get in?
[11:02] {magoo} .89
[11:02] {Threei} nice
[11:02] {magoo} fl
[11:04] {_xzap} and I missed all those good calls by Mr. Vad
[11:05] {Threei} well, that was quite a shock
[11:05] {Threei} you got really lucky
[11:05] {_xzap} Very lucky
[11:05] {Threei} as for missing my calls... seemed to me it was the case for you whole wekk, lol
[11:05] {magoo} l rimm here ,15
[11:06] {Threei} if you followed them with just 100 shares, this week would have already paid for couple months of mebership at least
[11:06] {Threei} now, anyone knows what "wekk" is?
[11:07] {magoo} stopped
[11:07] {GeoArb} when the week is wrekked
[11:07] {Chaeron} lol
[11:07] {Threei} mags, I would stay away from RIMM/AAPL/BIDU kind right now
[11:07] {Threei} they are relatively easy only where we get a trend
[11:07] {Threei} and market is completely shapeless rifght now
[11:07] {hawkfan4} wekk. to do something you dont wany anyone else to see you do ...
[11:07] {GeoArb} i am watching ES
[11:08] {GeoArb} it seems to be jumping a few points easy
[11:08] {Threei} lol... you guys
[11:09] {Threei} DELL 1:1
[11:09] {GeoArb} out half .21
[11:09] {Threei} feel free to cover in full or partial
[11:10] {Threei} really can't tell which is preferrable
[11:10] {Threei} erratic market, anything can happen any minute
[11:10] {Threei} so act according to your personal objectives and risk tolerance
[11:10] {Threei} now zap... did you take DELL short?
[11:11] {Threei} or it triggered while you still were sweating out that MS trade?
[11:11] {GeoArb} today's money is frameable truely
[11:11] {Threei} 1:2 DELL almost
[11:11] {Threei} today's and Monday's
[11:11] {GeoArb} yeah
[11:11] {Threei} 1:2 DELL wihtout almost
[11:11] {Threei} is it right grammar?
[11:12] {GeoArb} i bet there are a lot of brokers today who will have execution issues
[11:12] {Threei} no doubt
[11:12] {Threei} Laser handles these things incredibly graciously
[11:12] {dptl} ty dell +.17
[11:12] {Threei} :)
06[11:12] * Threei slaps Chaeron around a bit with a large trout
[11:12] {GeoArb} i think they are the only retail broker i know
[11:13] {GeoArb} who has nasdaq platinum cert
[11:13] {Chaeron} why?
[11:13] {Threei} yes
[11:13] {Threei} two reasons chaeron
[11:13] {Threei} first, because you apparently missed DELL short
[11:13] {Threei} and second, because I generally like slapping people
[11:13] {GeoArb} he missed?
[11:14] {Threei} that's what I am trying to find out
[11:14] {Threei} now, magoo calls me mean
[11:14] {Threei} but don't believe that
[11:14] {Chaeron} 1) I took at 13.35 short... got a call and had to run away for a sec and took a 0.16 loss
[11:14] {Threei} I am very mean
[11:14] {Chaeron} had to
[11:14] {Threei} .16?
[11:14] {Threei} I am lost
[11:14] {GeoArb} sheesh.... how did vad know
[11:15] {Threei} .16 is 13.51
[11:15] {Threei} it never went there
[11:15] {_xzap} no Vad, I missed DELL. Trying to compose myself
[11:15] {Chaeron} oh... sorry that was another trade. I lost 0.08
[11:15] {Threei} ok zap, for give me but I just have to do this
06[11:15] * Threei slaps _xzap around a bit with a large trout
[11:15] {Chaeron} 13.43 fill
[11:15] {_xzap} I knew that was coming !
06[11:15] * GeoArb is counting his money and thanking vadster
[11:15] {Threei} cut that phone cord
[11:16] {Chaeron} I know
[11:16] {Chaeron} not happy... had same thing on uaua
[11:17] {Threei} well, UAUA got eventually stopped fair and square
[11:17] {Chaeron} I feel better... thanks
[11:17] {Threei} but DELL delivered
[11:17] {Chaeron} I know... made it twice as bad
[11:19] {GeoArb} chaeron dcc
[11:19] {Threei} geo, what to know
[11:19] {Threei} chaeron is one of usually reporting
[11:19] {Threei} stock goes to 1:2, he is silent - I assume he missed
[11:19] {GeoArb} lol
[11:23] {Threei} ok, this was completely unreadable in DELL
[11:23] {GeoArb} wrd
[11:24] {Threei} I suspected .50 should serve as resistance for short but saw a downward move as quite limited and not worth the entry
[11:28] {GeoArb} market has become a little less volatile me thinks
[11:39] {Threei} feels like small upward move is coming
[11:39] {Threei} maybe good for a little scalp, hardly more
[11:39] {ese} what makes you feel that vad?
[11:39] {GeoArb} whose ese?
[11:39] {Threei} just a look of NQ chart
[11:40] {ese} new computor cut my handle short for some reason
[11:40] {GeoArb} lol
[11:40] {GeoArb} just reinstall mirc and chose it again
[11:40] {GeoArb} it happenned to me in a laptop too
[11:41] {ese} naw........I like the short version ...everyone was using that before anyway
[11:41] {Threei} hehe
[11:41] {Threei} we tend to simplify things
[11:41] {Threei} ever seen anyone calling geo geoarb?
[11:41] {ese} now thats interesting geo
[11:41] {GeoArb} i was just thinking that
[11:41] {ese} nope
[11:41] {Threei} or hawk hawkan4?
[11:42] {GeoArb} uhhhu
[11:42] {GeoArb} but youre lord vader
[11:42] {Threei} hck, we shorted even 4 letter nicks... dptl?? :)
[11:42] {GeoArb} i even heard MR vad today
[11:42] {ese} he is when he's into vodka
[11:42] {Chaeron} heeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyy.......... essssssse.........
[11:43] {ese} CCCCCCCHHHHHHHHH baby!!!!!!!!!!!!
[11:43] {Threei} see NQ?
[11:43] {ese} hows it goin man?
[11:43] {Threei} small upward... was good for like 6-7 cents DELL
[11:43] {Threei} and right back down
[11:44] {ese} market feels tired to me..........
[11:44] {ese} can only draw so much blood from a stone
[11:44] {patience} we may be tired of relentless downdraft but margin clerks aren't
[11:44] {Threei} main question now is,
[11:45] {Threei} will we get this almost traditional now eod selloff
[11:45] {ese} probably right patience
[11:45] {magoo} one difference vad
[11:45] {Threei} or will market change its ways and kill those who become too complacent in following the recent pattern
[11:45] {magoo} we are down.,..not up
[11:45] {Threei} true mags
[11:45] {Threei} but huge upward thrust kind of canceled that
[11:46] {magoo} we are down 372 now
[11:46] {Threei} and yeah... margin clerks... ow many envelops they still have to slap a stamp on and drop in the mailbox...
[11:47] {GeoArb} i thought they called?
[11:47] {GeoArb} well i wouldnt know
[11:47] {Threei} e-mailed I'd guess?
[11:48] {_xzap} Short DRYS under 16.8 ?
[11:48] {Threei} it's 60 cents from there
[11:48] {_xzap} I know
[11:48] {Threei} so, it's impossible to answer without knowing HOW it gets there
[11:49] {Threei} imagine it dropping sharply into 16.80
[11:49] {Threei} in one big swoop
[11:49] {Threei} would ou shoet it?
[11:49] {_xzap} no
[11:49] {Threei} now,
[11:49] {Threei} if it slides slowly
[11:49] {Threei} consolidates a little
[11:49] {Threei} then breaks,
[11:49] {Threei} would you?
[11:49] {_xzap} yes
[11:49] {Threei} there you go
[11:50] {Threei} price alone is not the answer
[11:50] {_xzap} I try to look ahead and set some trend lines to watch
[11:50] {Threei} the way stock is trading is necessary to cmplete the picture
[11:52] {_xzap} Short JOYG under 27.78 ?
[11:57] {Threei} -530 DJI
[11:57] {Threei} BOHICA?
[11:57] {patience} tsx -524

[12:19] {Threei} I'd give it 3
[12:19] {Threei} on half lot, 5
[12:19] {Threei} but whatever
[12:19] {Threei} it's just one trade
[12:20] {_xzap} GM reaffirming they don't need b'ruptcy protection. I bet they file within 2 weeks
[12:21] {Threei} - Program will be lead by the Treasury, in consultation with the Fed and the White House.
[12:21] {Threei} - The current idea is to make a term sheet injection available to all banks.
[12:21] {Threei} - The timing of the injections remains unclear at this point.
[12:21] {hawkfan4} lol xzap
[12:22] {_xzap} watch them Hawk, I swear I bet they file
[12:22] {Threei} zap... are you willing to short GM on that assumption?
[12:22] {_xzap} nope
[12:23] {_xzap} Long CSIQ here Vad ?
[12:24] {Threei} .20, if holding above 11 and if NQ breaks higher

[12:26] {_xzap} NQ dropping

[12:37] {_greens} just watching for now.
[12:37] {Threei} :)
[12:38] {Threei} don't heistate to ask if got any questions
[12:38] {Threei} ivac

[12:49] {Threei} use NQ as idicator for entry
[12:50] {Threei} invalidated
[12:51] {Threei} if NQ turns sharply up, .50 break will be a play again
[12:51] {Threei} .51 actaully, big offer there
[12:53] {Threei} stop under .30 PRU if you went for it
[12:53] {Threei} no worky
[12:54] {_xzap} Question Vad..
[12:55] {_xzap} I have the futures feed but not charts. Is the #COMP.Q as good as indicator as NQ ?
[12:55] {Threei} I'd prefer QQQQ then
[12:55] {_xzap} k
[12:57] {_xzap} looks like oil might close under $81 today
[12:58] {_xzap} oil down $40, still paying $4 gal for gas
[12:59] {peterg} more like $3 here
[13:01] {Chaeron} what's $/bbl today?
[13:01] {hawkfan4} oil trading 79.80
[13:04] {Chaeron} thanks
[13:04] {Threei} thinking of cornering oil market chaeron?
[13:04] {Chaeron} naaaa
[13:04] {Chaeron} water market.... think about it
[13:05] {Threei} not until I find the way to remotely control taps in every house over North America
[13:06] {Threei} when anyone wanting a glass of water from tap has to insert credit card so I unlock his tap - that's when I corner it
[13:07] {_xzap} Chaeron } I've been watching water for about a year now:$HHO&p=D&yr=1&mn=0&dy=0&id=p41882001531&a=145385954
[13:10] {hawkfan4} 13:07 ICE IntercontinentalExchange failed to settle all US trades Thursday - DJ (70.62 +1.87)
[13:10] {hawkfan4} dropping like a rock
[13:11] {Threei} I am not sure I understsand the meaning of this hawk
[13:11] {Threei} saw the news but can't quite place it
[13:11] {hawkfan4} me either
[13:11] {_xzap} wow
[13:12] {Threei} ICE
[13:12] {Threei} {CME NYX NDAQ IDC GFIG LSE.UK }
[13:12] {_xzap} bounce play ?
[13:14] {Threei} I don't want even to touch this animal
[13:14] {Threei} you see spread?
[13:14] {Threei} levels and sizes?
[13:14] {Threei} ca you control risk on it?
[13:14] {hawkfan4} yeah, way too dangerous. plus don't know what that news means. could be disasterous
[13:15] {hawkfan4} could be nothing
[13:15] {_xzap} going at the ask
[13:16] {Threei} are you ready to buy the ask and find yourself down anywhere from 30 to 70 cents on the spread alone zap?
[13:16] {_xzap} nope
[13:22] {_xzap} DJ CORRECT: ICE Settled Trades Thursday, But Processing Delayed
[13:24] {Threei} lol
[13:25] {Threei} reminds me old joke of Soviet times, one from famous Armenian radio series
[13:25] {Threei} Armenian radio is asked,
[13:25] {Threei} whetehr it's tru that academic Ambartsumjan won a car in lottery
[13:26] {Threei} radio's answer:
[13:26] {Threei} first, it was not academic Ambartsumjan but agrotechnic Abramjan,
[13:26] {Threei} second, it was not a lottery but cards,
[13:26] {Threei} third, it was not a car but three roubles,
[13:26] {Threei} forth, he lost, not won
[13:26] {Threei} the rest is true
[13:27] {_xzap} lol
[13:27] {hawkfan4} :)
[13:27] {_xzap} I wonder how many people got shook out of ICE
[13:28] {_xzap} now it's building sup @ 68.5 Vad, res is 70.25, where do we get in ?
[13:29] {Threei} we don't
[13:30] {Threei} you chose to ignore my point about about impossibility to control risk on this stock?
[13:30] {_xzap} nope, just wanted to hear your answer
[13:30] {Threei} you mean wanted to hear me repeating it
[13:30] {_xzap} yeah, wanted to hear your accent
[13:31] {Threei} OK, what does the room think... does it warrant the inevitable?
[13:31] {_xzap} oh Gosh
[13:31] {hawkfan4} get ready
[13:31] {_xzap} here it comes
[13:31] {Threei} yup
[13:31] {Threei} wait...
[13:31] {Threei} wait...
[13:31] {Threei} wait...
06[13:31] * Threei slaps _xzap around a bit with a large trout
[13:31] {Threei} there
[13:31] {_xzap} lol
[13:31] {_xzap} you are pretty cool Vad
[13:32] {Threei} {--- good at building the supsense
[13:32] {_xzap} but it did run from 68.5 to 70 :)
[13:32] {Threei} uhhu
[13:32] {Threei} and if they said, "yeah, we can't settle ytrades from now on"
[13:33] {_xzap} I really belive in trend lines, sup & res & Fib's
[13:33] {Threei} you would have lost 10 points before you even finish reading the headline
[13:33] {Threei} zap... here is one comment that, if this is the only thing you take from us, will cost more than any other advice you ever hear
[13:33] {Threei} risk evaluation comes first. Profit evaluation comes second
[13:34] {_xzap} ok, makes sense
[13:34] {Threei} Amatuers get elated by profit potential. Pros ger retsrained by risk potential.
[13:34] {_xzap} that's why I came here, to learn from you
[13:35] {_xzap} now watch it roll over, do we short it ?
[13:35] {Threei} that does it
06[13:35] * Threei slaps _xzap around a bit with a large trout
[13:35] {_xzap} lol
06[13:35] * Threei slaps _xzap around a bit with a large trout
06[13:35] * Threei slaps _xzap around a bit with a large trout
[13:35] {Threei} good day today... not only I am in the money, but I had an opportunity to slap not one, not two... but three people
[13:36] {_xzap} at least you could use fresh trout
[13:36] {Threei} one of them three times
[13:36] {Threei} what kind of fun would that be??
[13:36] {_xzap} gettin' pretty close to the 7's on the Dow
[13:37] {Threei} well, we were there in the morning
[13:37] {Threei} so, kind of developed tolerance for it :)
[13:37] {_xzap} I might change my bottom from 7500 to 7100
[13:38] {Threei} so far, it look eerily like yesterday
[13:38] {Threei} or before yesterday
[13:38] {Threei} preparing for big flush
[13:38] {Threei} if you believe in it, QID is your simplest way to trade it
[13:39] {_xzap} it's gonna be at least a week or more before the Fed can get that money in the system
[13:39] {_xzap} we can easily lose another 1000 in a week
[13:40] {_xzap} like playing the SD backwards Vad?
[13:40] {_xzap} SDS
[13:40] {Threei} same idea

[13:57] {Threei} SLW
[13:57] {Threei} mama mia
[13:58] {_xzap} G&S # 1 losing sector right now
[13:59] {Threei} what the heck happened to gold
[13:59] {Threei} silver, OK, that I understand
[13:59] {patience} euro banks selling to raise cash
[13:59] {Threei} but gold
[13:59] {patience} saudis are buying
[13:59] {Threei} bounce on lower volume, NQ
[14:00] {Threei} watch if new wave of acceleerating selling hits
[14:00] {Threei} QID will be good for another point at least
[14:02] {Threei} anyone went for 91?
[14:03] {_xzap} i wanted to but TRIN fell back
[14:04] {hawkfan4} playing the nq, scalping
[14:04] {Threei} same thing...
[14:04] {Threei} you know... "we have tockets to, umm, Ballbreaker"
[14:04] {Threei} "what?? maybe Nutcracker??"
[14:05] {Threei} "yeah... same thing, same thing"
[14:05] {hawkfan4} lol, definitely funnier after i figured out what "tockets" was :)
[14:05] {Threei} oh, this is simple... look at the letters around mistyped one...
[14:06] {_xzap} Now Vad I know you don't use indicators, but my indicators say the QID is oversold and building sup @ 89.50
[14:06] {Threei} to figure out the substitute :)
[14:06] {Threei} lost it fast
[14:06] {_xzap} won't this be a good bounce when the TRIN rises
[14:06] {Threei} zap, QID is not really independently traded thing
[14:07] {Threei} look at it
[14:07] {Threei} one buck under support you just mentionesd
[14:07] {Threei} I mean buck and half
[14:07] {_xzap} that's why I wait for a few candles to build sup
[14:07] {Threei} QID is simply market follower in reverse
[14:10] {Threei} LEHMAN CDS AUCTION RESULTS: $0.08625/DOLLAR V $0.0975 PRIOR
[14:10] {Threei} is it 8 cents for dolar?
[14:10] {_xzap} that's how I read it
[14:11] {Threei} yeah... I just can't believe I read it rigfht :)

[14:11] {Threei} what??
[14:11] {Threei} WB
[14:11] {Threei} OK... now iff we close green, I will have seen everything

[14:17] {Threei} [13:38] {Threei} so far, it look eerily like yesterday
[14:17] {Threei} [13:38] {Threei} or before yesterday
[14:17] {Threei} [13:38] {Threei} preparing for big flush
[14:17] {Threei} [13:38] {Threei} if you believe in it, QID is your simplest way to trade it
[14:18] {hawkfan4} you watching WB vad?
[14:18] {Threei} I think I better stay away from it
[14:19] {Threei} considering its werid situation between C and WFC
[14:19] {hawkfan4} ah, gotcha, thx
[14:19] {Threei} I don't understand even why it trades at all
[14:19] {GeoArb} didnt c withdraw
[14:19] {GeoArb} and is suing
[14:20] {Threei} withdraw?
[14:20] {GeoArb} from nego
[14:20] {Threei} last I heard they divide the carcass
[14:20] {Threei} and discuss what parts for what cost go to whom
[14:20] {Threei} maybe I missed some development
[14:20] {magoo} usual question
[14:21] {GeoArb} nope
[14:21] {Threei} too soon mags
[14:21] {hawkfan4} 09-Oct-08 22:02 ET In Play After Hours Summary: WB +31% (Citi confirms the co ended negotiations with Wells Fargo on Wachovia Transaction

[14:23] {_xzap} INFY moving up
[14:25] {_xzap} LEAP at day's low
[14:26] {_xzap} Vad } DRYS setting up for short ?
[14:27] {GeoArb} bad timing but hehhehehehe

[14:37] {GeoArb} and made some mistakes
[14:37] {Onix} got caught in PRU and UAUA
[14:37] {peterg} how about double shorting MS, thought I was covering. Got out with skin intact but no joy
[14:37] {GeoArb} 11:35] {Threei} hmmm... I am
[14:37] {GeoArb} [11:35] {Threei} but then again, I followed all my calls
[14:37] {GeoArb} was that a dig on xzap
[14:37] {GeoArb} ?
[14:38] {Threei} even with those Onix... winning calls cover them with a lot of overhead
[14:38] {_xzap} LEAP losing whole number
[14:39] {Onix} just wish i could trade all day already ... have this other job to take care of :)
[14:42] {Threei} NQ break of 1200 should serve as final signal for another eod flush
[14:42] {Onix} and taking stops still present a challenge that MUST be overcome!
[14:43] {peterg} Onix, I understand your sentiment, but sometimes it is nice to have the day job to go to--refreshing, different, and somewhat reliable.
[14:43] {_xzap} I sold my business to day trade full time
[14:44] {Onix} fortunately, my day-job is totally reliable, but with trading, i still have a LONGGGG way to go!
[14:44] {GeoArb} i i share the stop pain onix
[14:44] {GeoArb} getting slowly better
[14:44] {peterg} oh yeah
[14:44] {Onix} you mean there is light at the end of this dark tunnel?
[14:44] {GeoArb} now i use OMS module for stops a lot
[14:44] {GeoArb} as mechanical works better for me
[14:45] {peterg} works well?
[14:45] {GeoArb} sometimes i hesitate to punch out
[14:45] {GeoArb} on my own
[14:45] {peterg} ofcourse
[14:45] {GeoArb} there is some spread as its on pc not at broker
[14:45] {GeoArb} still better then me holding em :)

[15:42] {Threei} shot up in cards now
[15:43] {_xzap} that hammer doesn't look so good now
[15:44] {Threei} ADBE is up 40 cents from the moment I said up
[15:44] {Threei} better trade than stare at hammers :)
[15:45] {_xzap} I don't like to trade after 3:30
[15:45] {Threei} matter of taste... I don't like looking at hammers, drills or saws at any time of the day... call me not very handy :(
[15:45] {_xzap} lol
[15:46] {dptl} lol
[15:46] {hawkfan4} if i had a hammer, i'd hammer in the morning...
[15:46] {Threei} and about 60 days trial... zap, don't tell me calls you saw here during this week are not worth 300 a month
[15:47] {Threei} you hate your neighbors so much hawk?
[15:47] {_xzap} Yes they are Vad, our styles are so different tho
[15:47] {_xzap} but I will probably give you a month's try at least :)
[15:47] {hawkfan4} lol
[15:47] {Threei} does yours make money?
[15:48] {peterg} vive l'difference!
[15:48] {Threei} 'cause if not - that's where they differ {G}
[15:48] {patience} vad, i new the apron comment would make the difference :)
[15:48] {_xzap} yes it does
[15:48] {Threei} lol patience
[15:48] {_xzap} lol patience
[15:48] {Threei} if does, why do you need anyone's help at all
[15:48] {_xzap} for conformation
[15:49] {Threei} what better confirmation than profits
[15:49] {Threei} that's the confirmation from the market itself
[15:49] {_xzap} I started studying day trading in Jauary and made some VERY costly mistakes, I'm very gun shy
[15:49] {Threei} so it doesn't make money
[15:49] {Threei} sorry but you contradict yourself :)
[15:49] {_xzap} I haven't made the same mistakes
[15:50] {_xzap} I'm just not making what I want
[15:50] {_xzap} so I have searched the net over for a good trading room to help me build my confidence
[15:51] {Threei} 10 min lweft... I'll take any more trades only if something extraordinary happens
[15:51] {Threei} and in today's terms extraordinary woluld mean probably 1500 points drop
[15:52] {GeoArb} the best thing hat happenned to me all week
[15:52] {GeoArb} my in laws left
[15:52] {Threei} rofl

[15:52] {GeoArb} some things are more imp than money
[15:52] {Threei} OK... when it comes to in-laws, I'll give it to you
[15:53] {Threei} it's priceless
[15:53] {GeoArb} hehehe
[15:53] {GeoArb} i think the damage he did in the garden itself is worth a couple of grand
[15:53] {GeoArb} lol
[15:53] {Threei} lol
[15:53] {Threei} what did he do, rolled in daliahs
[15:54] {GeoArb} i told my gardner to wait for a month till he leaves.... and then redo
[15:54] {GeoArb} no he dug up everything and planted a veg garden
[15:54] {peterg} He wants you to have enough food
[15:54] {GeoArb} I AM NOT GOING TO GROW MELONS!!!!!
