[09:25] {jfjf64} lk that
[09:25] {jfjf64} last 2 mornin ya been on lets get em
[09:27] {Threei} DRYS is interesting
[09:28] {Threei} WFC, 24.80 - .85 is three days high break
[09:29] {Threei} I'd really prefer some pullback at the open, consolidation, then breakouts everywhere
[09:29] {Threei} that would be perfect scenario for big continuation move
[09:29] {nemo} the old bull flag
[09:29] {Threei} breaks right out of the gate is less desirable turn of events,
[09:29] {jfjf64} couldnt agree more
[09:30] {Threei} more likely to fizzle out wuickly and leave us with no range
[09:30] {nemo} although, RIMMs been flat for the last half hour
[09:30] {nemo} so much for that
[09:30] {Threei} pullback so far
[09:31] {Threei} FITB... that stron close was a clue
[09:31] {Threei} ok... WFC
[09:31] {Threei} Long Setup: WFC .85
[09:32] {Threei} stop under .70
[09:34] {magoo} long intc .82
[09:34] {magoo} 92
[09:36] {magoo} AIG dumper
[09:37] {Threei} AIG needs a bit more selling

[09:37] {Threei} wtg ese
[09:37] {fernp} gj ese
06[09:37] * magoo slaps ese around a bit with a large trout
[09:37] {Threei} ok WFC, it's time
[09:37] {dino} gj es
[09:38] {ese} tks i sold 15k of it yesterday at break even i didn't want to be holding 25k through the earnings announcement
[09:38] {Threei} let's trail WFC to under .75
[09:39] {nemo} wow $ smashed
[09:40] {fernp} FITB breakin hod
[09:40] {magoo} out intc .07 2k lot
[09:41] {Threei} hmmm
[09:41] {Threei} let's trail to under .80
[09:41] {Threei} I'd expect it to be at 25 already
[09:41] {Threei} don't want to get caught into sudden downturn
[09:42] {Threei} it worked too well yesterday, maybe it's back to its old tricks
[09:45] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .50 break
[09:45] {Threei} half lot
[09:46] {magoo} in rimm
[09:46] {Threei} stop is self-explanatory
[09:50] {Threei} if you are very stingy, RIMM can be trailed to above .60
[09:50] {dino} yum l .00
[09:50] {Threei} loss of .45 shoudl send it down
[09:51] {Threei} ok... drop already
[09:52] {jfjf64} lets go ya dog
[09:52] {Threei} stop to above .60 for sure
[09:52] {Threei} 5 cents shy of 1:1? come on?
[09:54] {dino} bwld sm l .50
[09:54] {Threei} stop to .55
[09:56] {magoo} covered rimm .41 TY had fl
[09:56] {Threei} the easiest way would be to take smallish scalp on RIMM, yeah
[09:56] {Threei} I just think we may not get a lot of plays later on
[09:56] {Threei} so with minimal risk here want to give this one a chance
[09:56] {Threei} personal choice
[09:56] {magoo} i didnt like up move aapl
[09:56] {nemo} we're not getting much for plays now
[09:57] {Threei} nope
[09:57] {Threei} there... you were right

[09:58] {Threei} INTC, I'd prefer to see double bottom for entry
[09:59] {Threei} one more dive, into .75 roughly
[09:59] {Threei} yep, like this
[09:59] {Threei} now, .82 is long if no new low
[09:59] {Threei} with stop located right under the low of this pullback
[09:59] {Threei} see the play's structure?
[10:01] {Threei} there you go...
[10:03] {BillyD} I think I have a quote problem...
[10:03] {Threei} 1:1 for scalpers
[10:03] {fernp} ty Vad. I am out
[10:03] {Threei} :)
[10:04] {BillyD} did INTC jump from .81 to .84 bid on you Vad with no prints?
[10:04] {Threei} need quotes Billy?
[10:04] {Threei} there were prints, just too fast,
[10:04] {Threei} but then it did pullback right into .82 offer
[10:04] {Threei} and hit my bid
[10:04] {fernp} yes Bill It did it, then pullback
[10:04] {Threei} that's where I typed "there you go"
[10:04] {nemo} yeah that's how I bought
[10:04] {BillyD} ok...that helps me then
[10:05] {Threei} sorry Billy... didn't mean to be so helpful, not my nature... don't want to shock you by sudden change in my behavior pattern
[10:05] {BillyD} it's ok...I never took it that way
[10:05] {BillyD} :)
[10:05] {Threei} whew
[10:06] {BillyD} your reputation is in tact
[10:06] {Threei} now, halve a look at 1 min INTC

06[10:09] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large book of Techniques of Tape Reading

[10:09] {Threei} I remember there is one in scalping course
[10:09] {nemo} not the point....hawk the book
[10:10] {Threei} ah

[10:13] {Threei} ruined

[10:15] {nemo} I know, I was going along with it

[10:45] {nemo} mmmmhhhh....rimm tracking spy more than Qs
[10:46] {larisa} ese one day you have to tell the story, what made you play big size lots and how did you gain confidence doing it, had winning streak at the beginning? just interested in huge lots player mindset :) wanna be brave like you :)
[10:46] {nemo} you would have had to do alot of mind altering experimentation when you were younger Larry
[10:47] {Threei} funny Larisa - he just told this story at the dinner this very Sunday, lol
[10:47] {larisa} does not help me :)
[10:48] {Threei} hey, you were invited :)
[10:48] {larisa} lol
[10:49] {ese} hi larissa.......after watching vads scalp trading video i caught onto the trading more than 1000 sh lots.
[10:49] {BillyD} out amzn -.15
[10:49] {Threei} chop chop started
[10:49] {ese} up to then i was getting winners but had to always wait for them to make .20 or so to pay off
[10:50] {ese} it just seemed to make sense to do the larger lots depending on volume and shortter stops.
[10:50] {wulff} INTC
[10:51] {ese} I also combined that with some of financial analysis/valuations that i learned with taking the canadian securities course
[10:52] {ese} coupled that with technical analysis to get some botoms in some stocks like fitb and intc and went very large with them
[10:54] {larisa} so having 10K and 1K is the same level of pressure for you ? you trained yourself? :)
[10:54] {ese} but i don't hang around anymore when they pay off....the old es used to hang around with the swing trading i was doing and would eventually loose the profit that i made
[10:54] {ese} i guess i coupled that with vads scalping process into a system that seems to work for me
[10:55] {Threei} larisa... the idea of scalp type I is much shorter market exposure time
[10:55] {ese} yes 10k and 1k are the same
[10:55] {ese} yes tks vad.....definately much shorter exposure time
[10:55] {larisa} in my mind scalping does not mix with big lots, but rather contradicts, this is why i am asking
[10:55] {larisa} trying to understand
[10:56] {Threei} why... just opposte in fact
[10:56] {Threei} smaller stops and better risk control allow for bigger lots
[10:56] {nemo} Larry, if the volume/liquidity is sufficient, what's the problem
[10:56] {Threei} if you go for a swing trade, your stop will naturally be wider
[10:56] {ese} you can scalp big lots....but it has to be with stocks that trade basically 10,000,000shs per day
[10:56] {Threei} since ou have to base the trade on larger time frame,
[10:57] {Threei} thus more price swings are being accounted for.
[10:57] {Threei} With day trade, your stop will be narrower
[10:57] {Threei} since you look at lesser time frame charts,
[10:57] {Threei} wich allows for more shares
[10:57] {Threei} and with scalp it's being taken to the extreme
[10:58] {Threei} Liquidity must be incorporated of course
[10:58] {Threei} and that's why ese does it on such thick stocks as INTC or FITB
[10:59] {Threei} makes sense?
[11:00] {dino} apol l .39]
[11:00] {dino} .30 i mean
[11:01] {dino} rick l .20
[11:03] {larisa} it is still the most twisted style, may be you need to be a man to do it :) and musician :)
[11:03] {larisa} ty guys
[11:03] {nemo} twisted, thy name is woman
[11:03] {Threei} man, maybe... but musician is the last thing you could call me
[11:04] {Threei} I mean if I sing, people think WW3 started
[11:05] {larisa} you ever played 10k vad ?
[11:05] {Threei} sure
[11:05] {larisa} then you are musician :)

[13:10] {Threei} butt out and let the market work
[13:11] {BillyD} Vad goes to Washington just like Mr. Smith
[13:11] {Threei} if there are too many dealerships, some witll go out of business
[13:11] {Threei} if there are too few new ones will spring up
