Mostly inactive second half of the day (what else is new?) but the morning brought profits on WFC, RIMM and AA - this last one was real torture speed wise. Can't be too picky in the summer trading though.

[10:04] {Threei} stop is a bit too far and stock isa bit too thin
[10:04] {BillyD} yeah, it is jumpy
[10:05] {ese} blind sided by the philly fed again
[10:05] {Threei} leave XLNX alone guys... that was specific question I answered, and jf knows how to play that one... kind of individual stock and setup
[10:06] {dino} sds l .60
[10:06] {jfjf64} sorry guys
[10:06] {nemo} don't do it again jf
[10:06] {nemo} :)
[10:07] {dino} out sds .72, +.12
[10:07] {magoo} AIG vad dumps
[10:08] {Threei} yeah, too bad it's non-shortable today
[10:08] {larisa} I can, close eyes, short and wait for 10 ?
[10:08] {nemo} funny girl
[10:08] {Threei} first two plays were easy... don't really want our third one to be AIG long, lol
[10:09] {larisa} :)
[10:10] {jfjf64} .55 l nok
[10:11] {Threei} .76 is a long trigger though if holding .65
[10:11] {Threei} and .64 is short trigger
[10:11] {BillyD} aig Vad?
[10:11] {Threei} yeah
[10:12] {BillyD} invalidated right?
[10:12] {Threei} yup
[10:14] {jfjf64} nok invalid here
[10:16] {larisa} vad RIMM you called off higher low? it was perfect price div, but you do not look for such things, right? ty
[10:16] {magoo} vad, look AA
[10:17] {Threei} wtaching
[10:18] {Threei} why not larisa? of course I do
[10:18] {Threei} that was double bottom, higher low, range established betgween .20 and .40,
[10:18] {Threei} one more pullback bottoming out above .25,
[10:18] {Threei} .40 becoming perfect trigger
[10:20] {Threei} Long Setup: AA .20 break if stays above .10
[10:21] {larisa} plus price divergence with all possible indicators. Was perfect setup, nice call RIMM
[10:21] {Threei} well, that I wouldn't know since I don't watych any indicators :)
[10:22] {jfjf64} nice larissa
[10:22] {larisa} this is why I ask, genius vad :)
[10:22] {Threei} lol
[10:22] {nemo} How much you pay her, Vad?
[10:22] {Threei} I missed the "price div", thought you meant higher low
[10:22] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .60 break half lot
[10:23] {BillyD} I am glad you asked, at first glanc eI did not see what Vad was calling and passed on I know better
[10:23] {Threei} if stays below .75
[10:24] {BillyD} does the RIMM spike invalidate it?
[10:25] {Threei} not if it trades for a min or two under .75 again
[10:25] {Threei} but another move over .75 will
[10:25] {BillyD} ok, sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't
[10:25] {Threei} yeah
[10:26] {Threei} brief spike with very few trades, kind of natural volatility for this one
[10:26] {BillyD} with AIG spike below .64 and it's overall weakness made that spike more confirming right?
[10:26] {Threei} after all, we are trying to nail setup with 15 cents range on a very volatile stock
[10:26] {Threei} gotta give it some leeway
[10:26] {dino} sds s .50
[10:27] {Threei} now RIMM is fully invaliadetd
[10:27] {Threei} and in fact became a fade
[10:27] {Threei} but I had no time to call it, lol
[10:27] {BillyD} does my AIG comment make sense?
[10:27] {Threei} yup
[10:28] {BillyD} ok, just trying to follow
[10:28] {_bradc} AA?
[10:28] {Threei} still valid
[10:29] {Threei} it actually formed two setups in one...
[10:29] {Threei} one for scalpers
[10:29] {Threei} .20 break long with stop under .15
[10:29] {Threei} one for daytraders, with srtop under .10
[10:29] {Threei} whatever rocks your boat, both are valid
[10:29] {dino} cov sds .38, +.12
[10:30] {Threei} RIMM{ if I were smart and called two-sided setup in advance, we would have had over 1:1 here
[10:31] {Threei} 1:2
[10:31] {Threei} why oh why am I not smart
[10:32] {BillyD} get smarter
[10:32] {Threei} I will try my best
[10:32] {dino} you want me to slap the stupid out of you?
[10:32] {BillyD} rofl
[10:32] {Threei} I am afraid by doing that you will slap the whole me out of me
[10:33] {jfjf64} market movin nice
[10:33] {nemo} you'd have to hit him in the ass Dino
[10:33] {dino} or how about we change your nickname to meathead
[10:33] {texus} anyone else in AA?
[10:33] {Threei} nah, I better go to monastery
[10:33] {larisa} you either smart or genius, can not be both
[10:33] {dino} no but i should be
[10:34] {Threei} yes tex
[10:34] {nemo} yes
[10:34] {Threei} it triggered fair and square, why the doubt
[10:34] {fernp} in AA. yes
[10:35] {texus} didn't see anyone say they were in, all good :)
[10:35] {jfjf64} in aa tex
[10:35] {jfjf64} lets goooooooooooooooooooooooo
[10:35] {Threei} they hold out on us tex
[10:35] {Threei} then if it works they all say sure we wer
[10:35] {texus} ahhh...
[10:36] {Threei} if it doesn't, they say "of course we skipped it, it was so stupid to call it"
[10:36] {jfjf64} quiet assins ya trainin vad
[10:36] {Threei} lol
[10:36] {dino} lol
[10:36] {fernp} and in HIG from ,80 with stop under .70
[10:36] {Threei} wow, that was a good setup
[10:37] {fernp} ty
[10:37] {Threei} but fern held out on us too
[10:37] {nemo} volume dropping on AA increase
[10:38] {jfjf64} thanks nemo
[10:39] {wulff} WFC if you believe
[10:39] {Threei} WFC, I looked at it at .80, was nice-looking setup
[10:40] {Threei} just felt like a bit too operfect
[10:40] {Threei} and market was quite uncertain... so I refrained
[10:41] {Threei} AA used to be much faster than this
[10:42] {jfjf64} aig vad .80 break ya lk
[10:42] {wulff} Cramer pushing SNDK big
[10:42] {Threei} not sure jf
[10:42] {Threei} kind of 50/50
[10:43] {jfjf64} no lk 50/50 ty
[10:43] {Threei} see, AIG here is a pure risk based setup
[10:43] {Threei} what I mean by yhis is:
[10:43] {dino} sds l .20
[10:43] {Threei} it can go up or down in such situation as this with equal odds,
[10:44] {Threei} so if you find a formation with stop tight enough for you to shrug it off if not working, it's a valid play
[10:45] {magoo} too funny cause i took .75
[10:45] {magoo} before
[10:45] {jfjf64} thats what is hard to find stop formation i luv
[10:45] {magoo} low
[10:45] {Threei} well, low of the range
[10:45] {Threei} is natural support
[10:45] {Threei} thus becomes a stop if broken
[10:46] {jfjf64} .60
[10:46] {Threei} yes for a scalp
[10:46] {Threei} there is one more support level near .50
[10:46] {Threei} if you go for a longer trade, gotta give it a bit more room
[10:47] {Threei} and then of course whole array of different kinds of entries come into play...
[10:47] {jfjf64} go magoo
[10:47] {Threei} regular vs aggressive vs consevative
[10:47] {magoo} could rip
[10:47] {magoo} thats why interested
[10:47] {Threei} magoo went for regular
[10:47] {Threei} you eyed a bit more conservative
[10:47] {jfjf64} ty vad
[10:48] {jfjf64} that stop to bg for me
[10:48] {Threei} everyone knows/remembers diferent kinds of entries and their trade-offs?
[10:48] {BillyD} yes
[10:48] {jfjf64} but 3x hittin off.80 hmm
[10:49] {BillyD} now or never AA
[10:49] {Threei} {AA} don't pressure me
[10:50] {jfjf64} forgot aa how funny must be up BIG this week ty vad
[10:50] {Threei} welcome sir... nice to hear
[10:51] {magoo} out ,87
[10:51] {dino} out sds .32, +.12

[10:52] {Threei} (US) Senator Bunning: States FDIC's Bair has stated that up to 500 more banks could fail (related XLF )
[10:53] {fernp} AA stop is still under .10, no?
[10:53] {jfjf64} need market to bounce movin avg for aa
[10:54] {Threei} {AA} told ya I do things at my own pace
[10:54] {Threei} no fern, I'd move it to under .15
[10:54] {BillyD} it was subtle suggestion technique
[10:54] {Threei} and scalpers got their 1:1
[10:54] {fernp} ty
[10:55] {dino} (US) dino says maybe more maybe less than 500 failures...see i could be politician too
[10:55] {nemo} a weatherman or economist also
[10:56] {Threei} isn't it ironic: magoo who hates slow stocks brought the slowest of today's plays, AA
[10:56] {magoo} but im not in it
[10:56] {nemo} frickin' comic book characters
[10:56] {Threei} say what?
[10:56] {magoo} not my type
[10:56] {nemo} fcx vad
06[10:56] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large roll of cash

[10:58] {Threei} well FCX...
[10:58] {Threei} FCX formal long trigger is .80 break...
[10:58] {Threei} but stop is quite wide
[10:58] {Threei} and stock is far from easy
[10:58] {nemo} been building a base though around .70
[10:58] {Threei} .70 is not a reliable support
[10:59] {jfjf64} look cof very strong
[10:59] {dino} sds l .35
[10:59] {nemo} should we move stop to .20 on aa?
[10:59] {jfjf64} market sellin this flyin
[11:00] {Threei} kind of personal preference nemo

[11:15] {Threei} not sure
[11:15] {Threei} get this:
[11:15] {Threei} US House Speaker Pelosi: Some of the wealth surtax could be used to pay down the Govt deficit
[11:15] {dino} why oh why don't we cut something rather than tax and spend
[11:16] {Threei} better yet: spend more than we taxed, so then we raise tax to compensate for overspending
[11:16] {jfjf64} cof interestin bulls bears fightin
[11:16] {Threei} and of course collecting more tax, we raise the spending again
[11:17] {Threei} but as Tatcher said... the problem with socialism is, sooner or later you run out of other people's money
[11:17] {dino} between state and federal taxes, the projections for these changes are at 55% tax rate, notcounting real estate/school taxes
[11:19] {dino} sds l .60
[11:19] {ese} I hadn't heard that saying before vad....but thats oh so true
[11:21] {dino} and i still think the dumbest thing is we spend 300-600 billion on oil, while we have enough nat. gas to last 150 years. it could power everthing
[11:21] {dino} not to mention the jobs it would create.
[11:22] {nemo} environmentalists 1) don't want a carbon based source of energy, and 2) don't want cheap energy
[11:23] {dino} you said it nemo
[11:24] {nemo} What's really scary, although, if they started with the Capitol and each state house, I wouldn't be opposed; many of the environmental groups believe in a radical reduction in the earth's population
[11:25] {Threei} and 3) want us all to wear fabric bags with holes for the head and arms and live in caves
[11:25] {dino} bunch of idiots w/$
[11:25] {nemo} Having said that, if they want to volunteer for population reduction, I'll gladly offer my services for free
[11:26] {dino} lol
