Nov 03 2008

Nice first half of the day, then market got a bit listless. More of the same tomorrow I'd guess. Still, profit is profit

Session Time: Mon Nov 03 00:00:00 2008

[07:47] {amarg} hello vad
[07:47] {amarg} hello dptl and geo
[07:48] {lisa_jay} Hi Amar....are U from the East coast?
[07:48] {amarg} hello lisa, texas
[07:49] {amarg} I'm new to vad's trading, joined on friday, for the most part, just watched you guys talk on friday
[07:50] {amarg} have you guys been around this platform for a while, and what's your overall opinion?
[07:50] {lisa_jay} I am new too...only been trading 2 weeks with Vad.
[07:51] {amarg} I'm waiting for the study material package and went through the online reading,
[07:51] {lisa_jay} Did you get his course?
[07:51] {lisa_jay} Oh sorry...once you get the course a lot of Vad's calls will make sense.
[07:52] {amarg} do most people in your opinion trade based on vad's recommendations or when he produces a signal or do the materials teach you to generate those on your own
[07:53] {amarg} dptl and geo, maga, if you aren't busy, your comments would be well appreciated as well
[07:54] {amarg} lisa are you trading with mbtrading or who? what tools you use to call trades?
[07:55] {lisa_jay} I think most of the traders here take some of their own trades as well. Keep in mind that they have a lot of experience on their own and with Vad.
[07:55] {lisa_jay} They just don't post them all the time since they take on more risk (Aapl, bidu, goog etc) and are not for novice. I for one stick to Vad's calls mostly.
[07:56] {lisa_jay} Example Dino trades capitulation and euporia - but with very strict stops....
[07:56] {lisa_jay} I think.
[07:57] {lisa_jay} Amar, talk to Vad about the best trading platform to use. I don't use MB trading.
[07:58] {_maga} hi everybody, I'm new too. today is my first day. so I cannot judge but I loved Vadym's books a lot!
[07:58] {_maga} #floor Cannot send to channel
[07:58] {amarg} thank you, my goal is to learn a program or techniques to be able to make more right calls than before, without that I feel all we do is gamble
[07:59] {lisa_jay} Yes.
[07:59] {amarg} so any comments on checking out whatever tools to better your probabilities is well appriciated
[07:59] {_maga} I agree
[08:00] {amarg} man, was I wrong on thinking that market was going down to test 7500 and hoping that DXD will head further up, while it fell by 20 points last week
[08:04] {magoo} morning
[08:04] {lisa_jay} Hi Magoo.
[08:22] {Threei} Good morning
[08:23] {Threei} 11/03/08 06:00am
[08:23] {Threei} [DRYS] DryShips, Inc Reports Q3 $3.53 v $3.60e, R $329M v $306Me
[08:23] {Threei} - Q3 Net voyage revenue $228.2M v $140.5M y/y
[08:23] {Threei} - Sees Q4 costs of $7.9M for dry docking
[08:23] {Threei} - Firm has total liquidity of $1.6B
[08:23] {_maga} good morning Vad
[08:23] {Threei} morning maga, welcome to the room
[08:23] {Threei} nice numbers and gap DRYS... but:
[08:24] {Threei} 08:13am Baltic Dry Bulk Index falls 2.8%, down 21 straight sessions (lowest reading since Feb 1999)
[08:24] {_maga} thank you
[08:24] {Threei} lasr week heroes are showing strength again this morning
[08:25] {Threei} UAUA and LVS
[08:25] {Threei} magoo, on AAPL:
[08:25] {Threei} - Notes production could fall approx 40%
[08:26] {Threei} 8:22am, dropped whole point on this comment
[08:27] {Threei} just keep in mind your bellweather may disconnect from the rest of the market if players take tgis seriously
[08:29] {Threei} who hates this endless jerking the clock back and forth twice a year, raise your hand...
06[08:29] * magoo slaps Threei around a bit with a large trout
[08:29] {Threei} one hand, I see
[08:29] {tomg} speaking of clock, didn't there used to be a real time clock on Laser somewhere?
[08:29] {tomg} gm btw
[08:30] {Threei} morning tom
[08:30] {tomg} on level II, I thought
[08:30] {Threei} yes
[08:30] {Threei} window right under amount of shares
[08:31] {Threei} when you click on it it toggles between T and %
[08:31] {Threei} T is time
[08:31] {Threei} works on NASDAQ stocks only I think
[08:31] {tomg} ah, got it back, ty vad
[08:31] {amarg} you mentioned DRYS, is that a play for short sale based on baltic index?
[08:32] {Threei} not necessary
[08:32] {Threei} news is news... it's not always a sole reason for a play
[08:32] {Threei} reason to look, yes
[08:33] {Threei} all too often stock does opposite to what news suggests
[08:33] {Threei} which is a great opportunity to "fade the news"
[08:33] {Threei} price/information divergence...
[08:34] {Threei}
[08:34] {amarg} since I'm new and not familiar with what are some of the usual symbols traded, can you throw out some symbols so that I can study them and be ready when you make a call
[08:35] {amarg} of course I imagine you follow a few stocks regularly
[08:35] {Threei} it's not like we have a firm list
[08:35] {Threei} but yes, some usual suspects appear now and then
[08:35] {Threei} and we play them regularly while they are active
[08:35] {Threei} lately, examples would be
[08:35] {Threei} UAUA
[08:35] {Threei} LVS
[08:35] {Threei} HIG
[08:35] {Threei} ADBE
[08:36] {Threei} then they run out of favor
[08:36] {Threei} new ones appear
[08:36] {Threei} about a year ago we played whole list of solars practically every day
[08:36] {Threei} haven't heard from them in quite a while
[08:36] {Threei} but I suspect they may be back in play on election outcomwe
[08:37] {Threei} or not... tape will tell
[08:37] {magoo} ty on aapl news vad
[08:38] {Threei} so let me get this straight... you trout me first, look later?
[08:39] {magoo} u got that right...whats the problem:)
[08:40] {Threei} none, I would worry about your health if it was any different
[08:47] {magoo} vad, news bidu?
[08:48] {Threei} 07:00am [BIDU] Announces $200M stock buyback (2.8% of market cap)
[08:48] {dawg} good morning everyone, new subscriber here

[08:49] {dawg} Thank you Vad you have been doing a fabulous job from the logs
[08:49] {Threei} hmmm... 6.05?
[08:50] {Threei} why is it available under 5?
[08:54] {lisa_jay} Good morning Vad.
[08:54] {Threei} lisa :)
[08:56] {Threei} LVS tested Fri high
[09:00] {lisa_jay} Citi Upgrades Chip Sector - analyst recommends QCOM, NVDA, INTC, ALTR, STM, IDTC

[09:02] {Onix} Good morning all
[09:02] {Threei} onix :)
[09:03] {lisa_jay} Hi Patience, Dino, and Onix
[09:05] {patience} good morning lisa, where do you live?
[09:05] {lisa_jay} CT.
[09:05] {patience} is it cold yet?
[09:05] {dino} :)
[09:06] {lisa_jay} Yes..should be nice today though (61)
[09:06] {dino} welcome to the jungle newbies
[09:06] {dino} follow vad to learn, imo. i trade on my own
[09:07] {Geo} gm all
[09:07] {Threei} Geo :)
[09:07] {lisa_jay} Hey Geo.
[09:07] {dino} thinking out loud, will the insurers offer more fun today
[09:07] {Onix} hi
[09:07] {Onix} geo
[09:07] {cosmo} SOLF maybe
[09:07] {_maga} tx Dino
[09:07] {Threei} Geo, you know who was asking for you on Fri, right?
[09:07] {Geo} ?
[09:07] {lisa_jay} :-)
[09:08] {Threei} starts with A
[09:08] {Threei} ends with S
[09:08] {Threei} and has RR in the middle
[09:08] {Geo} hehehe
06[09:08] * Geo respects alll animals
[09:09] {Threei} be back in 5
[09:12] {dino} np maga
[09:14] {Threei} one thing we need to gauge today is,
[09:15] {Threei} will market hesitate before the election or it pretty much made up its mind
[09:18] {dptl} good morning all
[09:18] {Threei} dp :)
[09:18] {Onix} Hi dp
[09:20] {Threei} uncertain opening so far
[09:20] {Threei} let's be patient as always
[09:20] {cosmo} 10 min i say
[09:20] {Threei} that's a certain spect of it, yeah
[09:20] {Onix} have not seen the market this calm for many months
[09:20] {Threei} yes... meek action
[09:21] {Threei} wait for good safe plays, no point in jumping with both feet while market decides
[09:22] {Onix} solid advice as always, ty
[09:23] {Threei} NVDA is green
[09:24] {Threei} not something I'd try to buy right out of the gate but worth keeping eye on
[09:24] {Threei} LVS and UAUA as usual, pullback buys rather than breakout
[09:24] {peterg} mornng team
[09:24] {Threei} peter :)
[09:25] {Onix} hi peter
[09:26] {peterg} hi
[09:26] {peterg} !
[09:28] {_maga} yes the same was here in Europe, the market was as calm as I was no more used to
[09:28] {cosmo} SOLF tests 6.50 at some point fwiw
[09:28] {Threei} rough waters became a norm, lol
[09:28] {Threei} qwe are uncomfortable in calm seas now
[09:29] {Threei} SOLF is a play if consolidates a bit, then breaks

[10:24] {Threei} may get back to this play but so far too unclear
[10:25] {dino} qcom stopped -.26
[10:25] {lisa_jay} Choppy today
[10:26] {Threei} yup
[10:26] {amarg} stopped lvs at 9
[10:27] {lisa_jay} CVS
[10:27] {Threei} ?
[10:27] {Threei} 9?
[10:27] {_maga} LVS or NVDA?
[10:27] {amarg} i had a stop loss on nvda at 9 , filled, sorry it was nvda not lvs
[10:27] {Threei} ok
[10:28] {Threei} not particularly important in this case, but stop should have been under 9, not 9 itlself
[10:28] {Threei} loss of support signifies stop
[10:28] {Onix} stopped NVDA
[10:29] {amarg} so what would be your advice, activate price 9, become market at ?
[10:29] {Threei} under 9
[10:29] {Threei} 8.99
[10:29] {amarg} ok
[10:30] {Threei} market or limit, this is different matter altogether
[10:30] {Threei} why not exwecute it manually?
[10:31] {dptl} eslr
[10:31] {amarg} well, i put in the stop order otherwise, when it's hovering around 9 or 8.99, the hope attaches that it won't go down, and it usually does and to avoid possibility of more loss, I place the order to stop as soon as I buy, what you think?
[10:32] {Threei} well, if you suspect you may have psychological troubles taking a stop - then by all means use hard stop until you get more confidence in your self-discipline
[10:33] {Threei} from pure trading standpoint, I prefer manual stops
[10:33] {dino} lol amarg, you sound a bit like me
[10:33] {amarg} ha ha
[10:34] {dino} i'm generally an idiot is i don't use hard stops
[10:34] {dino} xtex blood
[10:35] {Threei} Long Setup: HIG .50 break half lot if stays above .30

[10:55] {Threei} uhhu
[10:55] {Threei} it works - told ya, it was a buy... it doesn't - told ya timing was uncertain
[10:55] {tomg} uaua?
[10:55] {Threei} by the way magoo... phone just rang, HIG called me an idiot, made evilish laughter and hung up
[10:56] {dino} thats why they make the big bucks
[10:56] {Threei} UAUA is scalp on bounces tom, no real read
[10:56] {Threei} etier you get a feel for a brief reversal to scalp or stay away
[10:56] {tomg} ty
[10:57] {magoo} dam vad...i wasnt even watching HIG
[10:57] {Threei} such major break as earlier 16 deserved much bigger move than 50 cents

[10:57] {Threei} drop back under it that far doesn't bide well for continuation
[10:57] {Threei} yes mags

[11:03] {magoo} posilutely says dubya
[11:04] {Threei} CNN poll of polls has race tightened to 2 points
[11:04] {Threei} so there is a lot of uncertainty
[11:04] {dino} and down it goes
[11:05] {magoo} rimm back to old ways vad

[13:09] {Threei} UAUA, feel free to take profit
[13:09] {Threei} can't read it after this spike
[13:10] {Threei} need pullback or consolidation
[13:13] {Threei} hardcore scalpers only:
[13:14] {Threei} wtch UAUA for this interesting pattern,
[13:14] {Threei} it teleports suddenly very low, then jumps back just as suddenly
[13:14] {Threei} from 30.s to .11
[13:14] {Threei} pause,
[13:14] {Threei} if you grab it quickly, it's above .20 next second
[13:15] {Threei} quick and easy one hundred bucks
[13:15] {Threei} but only if you are quick and efficient scalper
[13:15] {Threei} impossible to call in time, happens in a shake of lamb tail
[13:23] {Geo} in .12
[13:23] {Geo} out .24
[13:23] {Threei} there you go
[13:23] {Geo} scary though
[13:23] {Geo} did half lot
[13:24] {Threei} new for you method of trading, of course test it with smaller shares
[13:24] {Geo} Qs helped
[13:24] {Threei} but you saw how effective and quick it was
[13:24] {lisa_jay} Where would the stop be for this kind of trade Vad?
[13:24] {Geo} y
[13:24] {Threei} under 16
[13:25] {Threei} this is not a pattern that exists on many stocks
[13:25] {Threei} and even on UAUA it doesn't happen every day
[13:25] {Threei} but when it starts occuring, it continues for a while
[13:25] {Threei} so, matter of observation
[13:26] {Threei} keep also in mind, the range of such "teleportations" changes
[13:26] {Threei} it won't necessary be .10 - .25 next time
[13:27] {Threei} with marker weakening it can easily go to about 16,
[13:27] {Threei} adjust accordingly
[13:33] {Geo} hmmm
[13:33] {Geo} didnt know they were introducing 3x etfs

[13:48] {Threei} here is another UAUA teleport

[13:48] {Threei} too long pause
[13:49] {Threei} anyway, grabbed .08
[13:49] {Threei} stop under 16
[13:49] {Threei} aiming to exit around .20
[13:51] {Threei} out .22
[13:51] {Geo} lets call this one the teleporation gap
[13:52] {Threei} I call it "the easiest $140 I made today"
[13:52] {Geo} lol
[13:52] {Threei} no seriously... how much easier can it get?
[13:55] {Threei} OK... here comes GM... hold onto your seats
[13:55] {Threei} - The steep decline in vehicle sales was largely due to a significant drop in the market's retail demand as uncertainty over the deepening credit crisis impacted consumer confidence.
[13:55] {Threei} - Dealer stocks -15% y/y to 799K vehichles
[13:55] {Threei} - Affirms Q4 production forecast at 875K vehicles -15% y/y
[13:56] {Threei} from my first days in North America I was always wondering while looking at car dealer lots:
[13:56] {Threei} who the heck is buying these endless seas of cars?
[13:57] {dino} hugh s .83
[13:57] {Threei} market weaker and weaker... next teleportation should probably wind down below 16
[14:01] {Threei} letting it dive lower this time
[14:01] {Geo} so vad did ya figure it out?
[14:01] {Threei} this was usual slide, not teleportation
[14:01] {Geo} cuz i still have that Q
[14:02] {Threei} why trees grow upward?
[14:02] {Geo} 10:56] {Threei} from my first days in North America I was always wondering while looking at car dealer lots:
[14:02] {Threei} oh
[14:02] {Threei} no, not really
[14:02] {Threei} still mystery to me
[14:03] {Threei} thousands and thousands of them, and every year they clear out inventory and get new year models in
[14:03] {Threei} and there are a lot of used ones as well
[14:03] {Threei} and all this somehow gets cleared,
[14:03] {Geo} yup
[14:03] {Threei} yet this is not a tothbrush,
[14:03] {Threei} you don't buy new one a few times a year
[14:05] {Threei} even if you include guys like me in equation who lease their cars,
[14:05] {Threei} it's a new car every 3-4 years
[14:05] {Threei} but still, YEARS, not MONTHSA
[14:06] {Geo} frightening enuff to refuse bonus?
[14:07] {Threei} sacred cows are called sacred for a good reason
[14:07] {Threei} bonus is untouchable
[14:13] {dino} lol
[14:14] {Threei} noticed? same pattern as Friday,
[14:15] {Threei} no order for a while, then cluster of trades comes along,
[14:15] {Threei} then no rhyme or reason again
[14:19] {dino} y
[14:24] {Threei} Short Setup: QCOM .79 half lot is stays below .90
[14:24] {Threei} if NQ drops sharply, grab aggressive entry
[14:27] {Threei} in .88, stop .95
[14:29] {Threei} no worky
[14:33] {Threei} LVS sudden jump

[14:59] {Threei} out
[14:59] {Threei} market goes for new lows
[15:00] {Threei} GM
[15:01] {dino} so, i guess it gets worse if not sustainable
[15:01] {Threei} - Remarks that Credit system is 'blocked'; the credit crunch is blunting the effectiveness of the Fed's rate cuts, will take time for effects of Fed actions to 'take hold', inflationary forces have 'vaporized'.
[15:01] {Threei} - Sees personally that there may be no economic growth through 2009.
[15:01] {Threei} - says may see several months of negative headline inflation, but not a deflationary trend.
[15:01] {Threei} - says Fed's balance sheet may reach $3T by year end, and 'not out of the woods' even as LIBOR declines
[15:01] {Threei} - Notes that a 'new arrangement is necessary for currencies'
