Aug 07 2009

Very nice finish to the week. Just one 10 cents stop, and wins were mostly on pullback long entries on HIG, AIG, WFC, HGSI, LVS with one short on WFC. Nothing to complain about, with some members reporting their best week of the year.

Session Time: Fri Aug 07 00:00:00 2009

[08:07] {nemo} now we know what the deal on aig was
[08:09] {JohnK} gm folks

[08:33] {BillyD} GM all
[08:34] {Threei} Billy...
[08:34] {Threei} where have you been yesterday
[08:34] {Threei} missed beautiful day
[08:34] {BillyD} some things to take care of
[08:34] {nemo} geez dad....
[08:34] {BillyD} saw the log
[08:34] {BillyD} maybe a repeat eh????
[08:37] {Threei} why not... let's by HIG again :)
[08:39] {BillyD} was there good jobs data?
[08:39] {BillyD} reason forspike up

[08:41] {Threei} [08:30] {Alert} Threei JULY UNEMPLOYMENT RATE: 9.4% V 9.6%E
[08:59] {ese} gooooood morning
[08:59] {Threei} ese :)
[08:59] {larisa} gm :)
[08:59] {ese} hey larisa
[09:00] {Threei} larisa :)
[09:00] {larisa} ese, vad :)
[09:01] {ese} at some point that dry bulk index will go up
[09:03] {Threei} that was my first thought this morning ese
[09:03] {Threei} it drops for 7 days straight,
[09:03] {fernp} good morning everybody
[09:03] {Threei} fern :)
[09:03] {Threei} DRYS however is more or less holding
[09:03] {Threei} the day index revrses DRYS should explode
[09:04] {ese} i'm still long my drys from yesterday at .40 would be nice if it did it today
[09:05] {Threei} well, today index is still down :)
[09:06] {ese} hmmmmmm
[09:07] {Threei} [08:21] {Alert} Threei BLTXX Baltic Dry Bulk Index -4.6% (7th straight decline)
[09:16] {ese} improvement in unemplyment rate and non farm payrolls.....looks like the reason for up start to the day
[09:16] {Threei} it's going to be interesting
[09:16] {Threei} here is what I mean:
[09:16] {Threei} we rallied for months with no positive news,
[09:16] {Threei} wirth extremely negatiove background noise,
[09:17] {Threei} and last week or two we started hearing all kinds of "recession is about over",
[09:17] {ese} yup
[09:17] {Threei} and now we are getting first signs of positive economic data.
[09:17] {Threei} Red day would signal strong reversal coming
[09:17] {ese} your thinking reversal
[09:17] {JohnK} T, do you think they'll eventually sell the news?
[09:18] {Threei} rather like:
[09:18] {JohnK} soon?
[09:18] {Threei} I am waiting to see if it's a red day in order to get a confirmation of reversal
[09:18] {Threei} that's how it usually works John
[09:18] {JohnK} I think so too
[09:18] {Threei} put the bottom in and reverse to the upside when it's the darkest,
[09:19] {Threei} rally on no good news,
[09:19] {Threei} spike right before or on positive news,
[09:19] {Threei} put the top in and reverse to the downside as news become rosey
[09:20] {Threei} Normal market cycle...
[09:20] {Threei} happens for eons, yet every time catches public by surprise
[09:20] {Threei} and causes all kinds of screams about manipulation
[09:21] {Threei} even though this scenario is of public's making in the same degree as smart money's
[09:21] {Threei} For it to happen, both sides must fufill their roles:
[09:22] {cosmo} ya know.... its just human nature
[09:22] {Threei} smart money to start accumulating when news is the worst possible and market is destroyed
[09:22] {Threei} and for public to wait with their buying until the news is at its happiest and market has rallied quite a bit
[09:22] {Threei} Smart money did its part,
[09:22] {Threei} now public's turn {G}
[09:23] {BillyD} so true
[09:23] {cosmo} so ... time to buy?
[09:23] {Threei} if you keep tabs on our plays from long/short ratio point of view,
[09:23] {BillyD} lol
[09:24] {JohnK} Yet, when we see this next top, it'll be a profit taking top, rather than a OMG sky's falling top... the pullback should be relatively shallow, right?
[09:24] {Threei} you will see how we used to short a whole lot last fall/winter/beginning of this year,
[09:24] {Threei} and how we play almost exlusively long side for the last few months
[09:24] {Threei} yes coosmo, and put it in your long term account saying "it will be back" :)
[09:25] {Threei} don't know if it's going to be shallow pullback/resumption or deeper drop, recovery and range bound trading for a while, John
[09:25] {Threei} both scenarios are plausible
[09:28] {magoo} ugegejkalkdfsa
[09:28] {Threei} I'll take it as a good morning
[09:28] {Threei} call me optimistic and trusting
[09:28] {ese} uffdidoiuwwwmdidak mags

[12:27] {larisa} ese, scalp shorts examples : counter trend shorts on JPM : 10:59 top created perfect price divergence and 12.08 double lower top. Strong stock, so scalps only. You have to feel exhaustion though price would still rise. Shorting bottoms on weak stock is diff mindset

[12:28] {Threei} lol dp
[12:28] {dptl} :)
[12:28] {larisa} but "THEY" say trader have to do longs and shorts equally easy. Vad you agree ?

[12:29] {Threei} I do larisa
[12:29] {Threei} it's not "must"
[12:29] {Threei} but it's a natural outcome of a trader's development
[12:30] {Threei} as one gets rid of ego-governed directional bias
[12:30] {Threei} it becomes absolutely the same
[12:30] {Threei} movement is movement, there is no emotional attachment to any direction
[12:31] {Threei} whichever way setup forms, you just take it'

[14:01] {larisa} CNBC will believe this rally was for real when DJI back to 14K ?
[14:01] {BillyD} then it will be over
[14:03] {Threei} this is the concept I never really understood
[14:04] {Threei} everyone discussing "real" the rally is or not
[14:04] {nemo} rally is a
[14:04] {Threei} what do they mean not real, I see it with my own eyes
[14:04] {Threei} it happens
[14:04] {Threei} how can it be not real
[14:04] {nemo} they sound like a good argument for retro-active abortion
[14:04] {Threei} if they mean it's short-lived, well
[14:05] {Threei} that's up to anyone's market read
[14:05] {Threei} but whether it continues for 3 days or 3 years, it's real
[14:05] {Threei} words "fake rally" make no sense to me
[14:05] {BillyD} if it makes my stock move it is
[14:06] {Threei} I ave just one qwuestion
[14:06] {nemo} why?
[14:06] {Threei} if I go long and make money, and then they call the rally fake,
[14:06] {Threei} do I have to return my profit?
[14:06] {nemo} you have to give it to me
[14:06] {dptl} lol
[14:07] {BillyD} it would be the right thing to do vad
[14:07] {Threei} why... I invite you to go long with me, no?
[14:07] {Threei} free will, ya know
[14:07] {Threei} I am a big fan of free will
[14:07] {nemo} what's your's is mine and what's mine is mine...oh forgot, that's what wives say
[14:08] {Threei} I also like to take "theirs" from those who want to take mine {G}
[14:09] {nemo} yep...and some body parts to boot
[14:09] {Threei} I believe in reciprocation, and reciprocator's gotta do what reciprocator's gotta do
[14:10] {Threei} two machine guns in front of my Tibet cave entrance reinforce this motto
[14:10] {Threei} WFC... consolidation above 29 becomes interesting
[14:11] {Threei} if upward markert thurs proves a trap again,
[14:11] {Threei} Short Setup: WFC 29 breakdown if stays below 21.10
[14:11] {Threei} LVS... sigh
