Jan 21 2009

Lukewarm start of the day (4 trades, 2 wins 2 stops) was sudden;y followed by a very strong performance. Some of usual suspects (DRYS is impossible to omit) plus some unlikely trading candidates like STT made the day nicely profitable.
Session Time: Wed Jan 21 00:00:00 2009

[08:00] {cujo} good morning all. 
[08:11] {Threei}  good morning
[08:12] {cujo} morning

[08:23] {Threei}  01/21/09 01:25am
[08:23] {Threei}  [STT] State Street Corp "Heard on the Street" looks at STT's bond-related losses and capital levels
[08:24] {Threei}  - The article comments on STT's higher than expected losses. The company had mark-market losses of $6.3B in Q4, which was well above Morgan Stanley's estimate. In addition, STT reported higher paper losses on its bond holdings.
[08:24] {Threei}  - Citigroup and JP Morgan also reported large paper bond losses in Q4. The system-wide bond losses by banks could show that there is a lack of appetite for certain types of bonds, such as corporate bonds.
[08:24] {Threei}  - WSJ notes that Obama's administration may have to increase the Fed's commitments to buy bonds and possible expand the types of bonds that the Fed can buy.
[08:24] {Threei}  - With respect to State Street's capital levels, the company has a Tier 1 capital ratio of 20.5%, but its tangible common equity as a percentage of tangible assets, including off-balance sheet vehicles, is 1.05% of assets.

[09:10] {Threei}  I guess someone up there doesn't want you to be armed
[09:10] {nemo} I reinstalled the whole shbang.  nuttin'  Leaves me kinda empty. :(
[09:10] {nemo} I'll settle for coffers full of money
[09:11] {fernp} Hello everybody
[09:11] {Threei}  fern :)
[09:11] {magoo} so u are vulnerable nemo?
[09:11] {Threei}  nemo... duck
06[09:12] * magoo slaps nemo around a bit with a large big grinn knowing retaliation not an option
[09:12] {ese} morning.....
[09:12] {Threei}  ese :)
[09:12] {Threei}  gen... dcc please
[09:13] {nemo} I use a Nightforce magoo and practice at 1000 yds.
[09:14] {nemo} Well, not in all this snow
[09:15] {Threei}  yesterday's high is 14.05 for DRYS
[09:16] {Threei}  on some openings it rallies like crazy, on some it makes a steep pullback, then big bounce
[09:17] {Threei}  can't really tell which scenario develops today... I would love big pullback
[09:17] {Threei}  over last week or so it pulled back from 17+ highs on decreasing volume, looks like bull flag on daily
[09:18] {Threei}  but the gap is already too big
[09:18] {Threei}  so, most likely let's go with pullback scenario and try to catch it if materializes
[09:19] {Threei}  if no pullback, let's watch for opening range break
[09:20] {cujo} what price would signal a pullback?  around 13.95 on increasing vol?
[09:20] {Threei}  that's a bit too shallow for a pullback
[09:21] {Threei}  if 13.95 is all it can do on the downside, than opening range break is the way to go
[09:21] {cujo} ok, keeping eyes open. 
[09:21] {cosmo} PALM
[09:21] {cosmo} tests
[09:22] {dino} gm
[09:23] {magoo} on should hit 15 if breaks up..psattern is to run much farther than scalp
[09:23] {Threei}  dino :)
[09:23] {Threei}  very true mags
[09:24] {Threei}  PALM... .30 - .40 zone is highs of two days
[09:25] {Threei}  usually it forms nice solid consolidation before break and run
[09:25] {cosmo} including open breaks?
[09:25] {Threei}  so, if this one wants to continue its rally, I would think we will have enough of advance warning
[09:26] {Threei}  not sure cosmo, did't track open breaks on it
[09:26] {cosmo} seems like its been years...
[09:28] {Raven} it has ...
[09:29] {Threei}  lol
[09:30] {cujo} Drys moving lower
[09:30] {Threei}  13.60 or so, I am interested in pullback
[09:31] {Threei} Long Setup:  PALM  8 break if holding above 7.85
[09:31] {Threei}  scalpers can keep stop under .90
[09:31] {KSystems} in
[09:31] {fernp} in
[09:31] {magoo} in
[09:33] {cujo} in
[09:33] {Threei}  stop to under .90 in any case
[09:33] {elepet} in

[09:35] {Threei}  no worky
[09:35] {KSystems} out
[09:35] {fernp} stopped
[09:35] {cujo} stopped
[09:36] {Onix} what you ean by 8.05 is critical level on PALM Vad?
[09:36] {Threei}  it tested it twice
[09:37] {Threei}  became a resistance defining the future of the trade
[09:37] {ese} bstop WGOV. 24.50 1/2
[09:38] {Onix} ty
[09:38] {Threei}  DRYS losing support
[09:41] {ese} wgov  invalidated

[09:52] {Threei}  DRYS over 1:1
[09:53] {dino} hbhc blood
[09:53] {KSystems} half out .81
[09:53] {Threei}  stop to under .60
[09:54] {Threei}  and try to exit second half around 14
[09:54] {Threei}  offer .96 - .97
[09:54] {Threei}  out
[09:55] {Threei}  ks?
[09:55] {KSystems} DRYS - in .66 - out 1/2 .81 - out rest .97
[09:55] {Threei}  good
[09:55] {Threei}  between PALM and DRYS, we may have stayed in bed just as well {G}
[09:56] {ese} l hbhc .75

[09:56] {ese} sorry thats 25.78

[09:59] {Threei}  :)
[09:59] {Threei}  nice one ese
[10:00] {magoo} is there a breakout play DRYS?
[10:00] {Threei}  14 break is obvious setup on it
[10:00] {Threei}  hate the way it pulls back though
[10:01] {Threei}  it's usually fine when there is a real momop
[10:01] {Threei}  momo
[10:01] {Threei}  but it's a bit labored today
[10:02] {nemo} stt 
[10:02] {dino} gj es
[10:04] {ese} tks dino
[10:04] {dino} idcc
[10:05] {ese} indeed
[10:05] {ese} where....
[10:05] {Threei}  GE
[10:06] {Threei}  no kidding
[10:06] {ese} and thats a pretty solid company
[10:07] {Threei}  ok... if DRYS is not losing .85 anymore, 14 break become more palatable
[10:07] {Threei}  (not less scary, mind you)
[10:08] {ese} thats a 10 month high on IDCC also dino
[10:08] {Threei}  invalidated
[10:08] {Threei}  kind of relief, to say honestly :)
[10:08] {Threei}  didn't feel easy about that break
[10:08] {Threei}  RIMM is holding interestingly strong on this market pullback
[10:09] {nemo} is that an unequivocal maybe?
[10:09] {Threei}  you lost me right after "is"
[10:10] {Threei}  hey, Geithner paid his taxes
[10:10] {Threei}  how nice of him
[10:10] {nemo} poor sense of humor-me
[10:11] {Threei}  no clear setup on RIMM
[10:11] {Threei}  a bit listless chart
[10:12] {ese} arghhhhh...wasn't paying attention WGOV missed 24,50 
[10:13] {ese} ah well...more where that came from
[10:13] {fernp} QCOR holding. Any read, Vad?
[10:14] {Onix} stoppe in PALM, thought the 7.70 would hold it
[10:14] {Threei}  chart looks right fern... it's volume that I hate
[10:15] {Threei}  trades by appointment
[10:15] {fernp} Yes, I see. ty
[10:15] {Threei}  PALM is losing will to live Onix, leave it well alone for now
[10:16] {Threei}  couldn't even stage a decent bounce when market made new highs
[10:16] {Onix} for sure!
[10:19] {ese} L hbhc again .38
[10:20] {ese}  1/2
[10:21] {Threei} Long Setup:  PLD  .40 break half lot
[10:21] {ese} out .57
[10:21] {Threei}  if sets up from here, stop is under .30
[10:21] {Threei}  .20 invalidating level
[10:22] {ese} weird fill +.19
[10:22] {ese} was showing .42
[10:22] {Threei}  aggressive entry is probably a good idea if cmes closer to .20
[10:23] {ese} WGOV.....nice move after .50 breakout
[10:23] {Threei}  pretty much a market follower so keep an eye on the broader market totime it
[10:23] {ese} almost up 1 pt
[10:26] {ese} speaking of weird fills vad....was watching time a sales  and didn't even see does a broker do that without posting on the time and sales house?  cand they do that
[10:26] {fernp} invalidated or good moment to jump in w/stop under 11.00?
[10:26] {Threei}  to me, feels right for entry fern
[10:26] {fernp} ok, in
[10:26] {Threei}  on what ese?
[10:27] {ese} hbhc last rade
[10:27] {ese} fill on my 1/2 ;ot was .57
[10:27] {Threei}  sorry, didn't watch it...
[10:27] {ese} but didn't see posted on time and sales
[10:28] {ese} was just wondering if they can do that....brokers that is
[10:28] {Threei}  not really without posting print
[10:28] {ese} do a fill without posting on time and sales
[10:28] {Threei}  market sharp drop
[10:29] {ese} maybe missed it 
[10:30] {fernp} stopped PLD
[10:31] {dino} cohu
[10:31] {ese} check out pattern on ERIC vad......textbook...from your book......10 cent range

[10:36] {Threei}  STT huge pullback
[10:41] {nemo} on stt, is that an ascending triangle or diving board!

[11:01] {Threei}  what's wrong with market where we run such percentage?
[11:01] {Threei}  it's not very tradeable today so far, so what?
[11:01] {magoo} figure it out..maybe u have but i haven't
[11:02] {Threei}  all my calls and trades are posted
[11:02] {Threei}  I don't know what it is I need to figure out
[11:02] {Threei}  don't take it out on me, ok?
[11:02] {nemo} nothin' to figure out other than what you do right now.  Yesterday was great, today so, so...tomorrow...somethin' else.
[11:03] {dino} i'll say this, i've traded less this month than a usual week. lots of sitting for me
[11:03] {cujo} think this is head fake on the bounce?  
[11:03] {cujo} indicies
[11:03] {Threei}  no read for now cujo
[11:03] {Threei}  I want to let this selling sort itself out
[11:03] {dino} cujo, need that ndx gap filled, or we come back to it later
[11:03] {magoo} figure out+maybe u up but i not..i don't just follow u blindly {although maybe i should}
[11:04] {Threei}  every bounce got smacked so far, no need to guess on each f them
[11:04] {dino} 1136
[11:04] {cujo} yup, not making a move.  Just in interesting territory.
[11:05] {nemo} Seems I remember reading in Livermore's book he actually had to go back to work for awhile because the market was doin' nothin'.  
[11:05] {Threei}  I don't want to be overactive on a day when trades don't work out with high percentage
[11:05] {dino} it's doing something, 15% ranges
[11:05] {Threei}  look at two days to compare:
[11:06] {Threei}  yesterday almost all of them worked, we did around 10 trades, adn I continued pushing when valid setups presented themselves
[11:06] {Threei}  out of 3 today's, only one did
[11:06] {dino} i would like to buy a hambuger
[11:06] {nemo} So, the weak morning tells you the stars aren't aligned for you today
[11:06] {nemo} Dino...will you pay for it Tuesday?
[11:06] {Threei}  so I don't want to overtrade until things start looking more readable
[11:06] {dino} think in terms of probabilities
[11:07] {dino} i will gladly pay you tomorrow for a hamburger today
[11:07] {nemo} I figgered
[11:07] {nemo} I've had all I can stands and I can't stands no more!
[11:08] {larisa} traders are way more emotional these days :)

[11:36] {magoo} TRY
[11:36] {cujo} I wan't here a few months ago.  Was that The Jim Cramer Biography?

[11:36] {dino} lol cujo
[11:37] {Threei}  lol cujo
[11:37] {cujo} ;)  I try
[11:37] {Threei}  no... although it could have easily been
[11:37] {dino} pretty much short anything cramer says to buy
[11:37] {Threei}  I referred to the situation we had on hands when TARP was debated
[11:37] {cujo} yeah "The Cramer Effect"
[11:37] {cujo} ahh TARP
[11:37] {Threei}  every 15 minutes new comment would appear
[11:37] {Threei}  approved
[11:37] {Threei}  not approved
[11:37] {Threei}  approved but with conmditions
[11:38] {Threei}  these seators do not agree with cnditions
[11:38] {Threei}  these do
[11:38] {dino} T(total)A(azzhole)R(re-election)P(plan)
[11:38] {cujo} he he
[11:38] {Threei}  and market would drop or jump like crazy with every comment
[11:38] {Threei}  try to trade when it's such a mess, lol
[11:38] {cujo} it was crazy then. 
[11:39] {nemo} that 850b dem stimulus plan is spread out over 10 years, by the way
[11:39] {Threei}  now, guys
[11:39] {Threei}  let's restore the balance a bit, shall we
[11:39] {Threei}  we are at 50 % so far today, 4 trades,
[11:39] {Threei}  2 wins, 2 stops
[11:40] {Threei}  nothing remarkable, I mean I wouldn't run around telling pretty girls about such achievement in hope to excite them by my trading prowess,
[11:40] {Onix} is that a good balance?
[11:40] {Threei}  and nothing to be desperate about
[11:41] {larisa} how did you want to play STT vad?  16 break to upside  afer bottoming under 15.50 ? just curious.
[11:41] {Threei}  I mean emotional abalnce and perspective on things
[11:41] {KSystems} where was the first stop?
[11:41] {KSystems} or rather, _when_?
[11:41] {nemo} Vad, expectations, expectations, expectations. 
[11:41] {Threei}  yes larisa, with stop under 14.80
[11:41] {nemo} Emotions are the enemy of you said STT
[11:41] {Threei}  15.80
[11:41] {larisa} 15.80 you mean/ pullback too big and 16 too far off bottom, just wondering what was your vision
[11:42] {Threei}  PALM ks, right after the open
[11:42] {KSystems} ok, that one i got
[11:42] {KSystems} then the other one?
[11:42] {Threei}  PLD
[11:42] {KSystems} wow it didnt even trigger for me
[11:42] {Threei}  was hesitant call, but asnwering a question on it it could qualify as a call nonetheless
[11:43] {Threei}  no, it was more like a pullback entry
[11:43] {KSystems} ok, ty
[11:43] {Threei}  larisa... setup I mean was:
[11:43] {Threei}  after bounce off 15.50 it consilidated a bit under 16,
[11:44] {Threei}  then broke it with low of the consolidation range about 15.80
[11:46] {hawkfan4} am i here?
06[11:46] * magoo slaps hawkfan4 around a bit with a large roll of cash
[11:46] {Threei}  I am very tempted to say no
[11:47] {nemo} beat me to it vad
[11:47] {nemo} Vad, if STT breaks .80 likely to test spike in an up market?
[11:47] {hawkfan4} lol :)...finally conquered mirc
[11:47] {Threei}  lol
[11:47] {Threei}  mirc proves to be worthy adversary

[11:49] {magoo} i only beat it yesterday
[11:50] {cujo} Free traders expo in NYC in FEB.  Anyone in the area?

[11:51] {Threei}  no substance, just selling
[11:52] {cujo} got it.  Yeah there are a ton of vendors there. 
[11:52] {Threei}  that would fine,
[11:52] {Threei}  after all, expo must turn profit somehow
[11:52] {Threei}  but there must be some value delivered as well
[11:52] {cujo} yeah
[11:53] {Threei}  and that part disappeared when new Expo owners started treating speakers as commodity
[11:53] {dino} evep

[13:36] {Threei}  mulligan?
[13:36] {magoo} man..look at q chart
[13:37] {elepet} from  13.42
[13:37] {Threei}  time to partial elepet... at least
[13:37] {cujo} rockin
[13:37] {Threei}  don't chase aything here, pullback is coming
[13:37] {cujo} short the pullback on the qqqq?
[13:37] {Threei}  nah
[13:38] {cujo} sitin tight
[13:38] {Threei}  long on pullbacks is the way to go today
[13:40] {Threei}  if market spike sharply here, DRYS 14 break and STT .50 break
[13:41] {Threei}  STT stop under .40
[13:41] {Threei}  DRYSunder .90
[13:41] {elepet} couldn't do it. (sell any drys) it felt like it was going up.
[13:42] {Threei}  volatile thing
[13:42] {Threei}  in volatile market
[13:43] {Threei}  keep stops tight and watch for re-entry if pullbacks are deep
[13:46] {Threei}  dizzy yet?
[13:46] {cujo} y
[13:46] {magoo} yea
[13:46] {cujo} thing moves
[13:46] {Threei}  these quick up and down are seasickness-inducing

[13:50] {Threei}  {DRYS} yes sir
[13:50] {magoo} magoos kickin it
[13:51] {magoo} drys kickin back
[13:51] {Threei}  last pullback on DRYSS bottomed out at .95
[13:51] {Threei}  if you want to control risk really tight, trail to under it
[13:53] {Threei}  if this day doesn't turn bright all of a sudden...
06[13:54] * Threei squints in magoo's direction
[13:54] {nemo} was waiting for that
[13:54] {Threei}  Very Big Grin
[13:54] {nemo} mags is turning all red
[13:54] {Threei}  lesson of the day:
[13:55] {magoo} ive found that when i complain in room..i usually am wrong which inevitably helps our cause:)
[13:55] {Threei}  leave useless emotions at the door,
[13:55] {Threei}  take valid setups,
[13:55] {Threei}  plug along as market goes,
[13:55] {Threei}  no matter how this or that trade or day or even week turns out,
[13:56] {Threei}  you will win in a long run as long as you adeploy valid system and execute it flawlessly, relentlessly and with no second-guessing
[13:56] {nemo} past is prologue, future may or may not come...all is now
[13:56] {Threei}  eqzaktly
[13:57] {Threei}  two secondary lessons:
[13:57] {Threei}  don't spell right
[13:57] {Threei}  and when you absolutely don't know what to do, do this:
06[13:57] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large roll of cash
[13:58] {Threei}  bad spelling has two additional advantages
[13:58] {Threei}  it irritates the hell out of Raven
[13:58] {Threei}  and it will irritate the hell out of peter when he reads our logs
[13:58] {nemo} among others :)
[13:59] {Threei}  and heavens know I love irritating people...
[14:00] {Threei}  DRYS 1:1
[14:00] {Threei}  isn't it irritating
[14:00] {nemo} makin' money no...not understaning eqzaktly why it's working...yes
[14:01] {Threei}  oh, and if you think I am exaggerating - just ask patience... she knows herds of people I irritate to no end {G}
[14:01] {larisa} you can stop now :)
[14:01] {Threei}  come on nemo... there is not much to understand really
[14:01] {Threei}  I can't larisa, sorry...
[14:01] {Threei}  I have my quota of people to irritate per day
[14:01] {Threei}  and I haven't fulfilled it yet
[14:02] {Threei}  btw, I hate to admit that but magoo was right on DRYS
[14:02] {dino}  dino places 3i on ignore
[14:02] {nemo} I ever tell you about my "disgruntled-postal-worker-fantasy list?
[14:02] {cosmo} also... its better to feel irritated than feel nothing at all...
[14:03] {Raven} {}
[14:03] {larisa} i dunno cosmo, can i disagree? :)
[14:03] {magoo} 12:36] {magoo} vad..i got weird feeling DRYS going over day high
[14:04] {cosmo} born to suffer here...
[14:04] {Threei}  that'ss what I meant mags
[14:04] {Threei}  larisa... you can disagree but xosmo will be very irritated
[14:04] {larisa} lol
[14:05] {Threei}  dino... this is one single time I admitted he was right... and you place me on ignore? next time will be in 2010, I promise
[14:05] {cosmo} xosmo is no friend of mine
[14:05] {KSystems} vad , are you still in DRYS?
[14:05] {Raven} lol
[14:05] {Threei}  no

[14:05] {elepet} went over and pulled back. will it do it again? Drys HOD?
[14:05] {Threei}  maybe will regret

[14:10] {dino} cedc
[14:10] {Threei}  I have this nagging feeling that one more bigger trade must be in cards today

[14:11] {magoo} could it be RIMM?
[14:11] {larisa} you can annoy us with this one :)
[14:11] {Threei}  lol

[14:13] {magoo} could it be DRYS to 15??
[14:13] {elepet} and thar she blows( drys)
[14:13] {Threei}  if market explodes, it can
[14:13] {Threei}  DRYS potential really hard to overestimate
[14:14] {cosmo} i'm in it simply for the stimulus
[14:14] {Threei}  this thing knows how to move

[15:33] {patience} ty  :)
[15:34] {Threei}  they moved to Thu because of holiday on Monday
[15:35] {nemo} Oh excrement! look at this:
[15:35] {nemo} With the market down about 9% year-to-date, everyone is looking at making money shorting the market. It's not easy: the downside potential is unlimited. Stocks sold short can be called away by the brokerage firm while a position is at a loss, thus, realizing the loss.
[15:35] {nemo} In particular, people are piling into short ETFs. However, qualified-account holders such as IRA investors who are buying short ETFs can run into the headache of unrelated business taxable income (UBTI).
[15:35] {nemo} Shorting stocks can only be done in taxable accounts and not qualified accounts like IRAs. However, IRA investors can buy ETFs like the ProShares UltraShort Financials (SKF - commentary - Cramer's Take), the Rydex Inverse Russell 2x Leverage (RRZ - commentary - Cramer's Take) or the Federated Prudent Bear Fund A (BEARX - commentary - Cramer's Take).
[15:35] {nemo} However, activities inside of these funds can cause the shareholder to file taxes even if they are bought inside an IRA. This occurs when a tax-exempt entity participates in business that is not deemed tax exempt by the Internal Revenue Service as part of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
[15:35] {nemo} According to the IRS, "Securities purchased on margin are considered debt-financed property if the liability incurred in purchasing them remains outstanding." Much of the law is directed towards investors using self-directed IRAs for purchasing property, but this can also be an issue for master-limited partnerships.
[15:35] {nemo} Many funds do not merely short stocks, but lever up to amplify returns. However, leverage is not allowed inside an IRA, and if it occurs, the IRA owner must file a tax return. In the money management business, if this happens to your uninformed client, you'll end up with egg on your face when the client's CPA calls you with questions.
[15:35] {nemo} According to the website, Form 990-T, "Exempt Organization Business Income Tax Return," must be filed if over $1,000 in income of this type is earned. A CPA's advice is needed for such an obscure subject.
[15:35] {nemo} Make sure you know what you are doing if you try to buy a short EFT. It is not the same as buying 1,000 shares of Coca-Cola (KO - commentary - Cramer's Take) and holding for 40 years. These investments must be watched like a hawk -- many ETFs are full of swaps made with shaky investment banks. These esoteric securities are trickier than you think.
