Sep 30 2009

[10:25] {Threei} (US) Pres Obama to spend approx $5B as part of job creation projects
[10:25] {nemo} Yeah, if oil builds are excessive this could really tank
[10:25] {Threei} aren';t you glad he has deep pockets
[10:25] {nemo} I don't have very many more pounds of flesh to contribute
[10:25] {Threei} sorry nemo, your logic escapes me
[10:26] {nemo} which logic
[10:26] {nemo} oil
[10:26] {Threei} excessive oil duils - bad for the market?
[10:26] {Threei} builds
[10:26] {Threei} mags... glad we tightened stop?
[10:26] {Threei} don't enter that far from support next time, deal?
[10:27] {nemo} well if the Chicago numbers tanked the market, might further reinforcement of energy builds hammer it harder?
[10:27] {magoo} yea
[10:27] {Threei} chicago numbers were bad
[10:27] {Threei} how a lot of oil in reserves is bad?
[10:27] {nemo} means energy not being used...takes energy to run economy
[10:27] {nemo} might just confirm and do nothing
[10:27] {Threei} that is if you look backward
[10:27] {nemo} or...
[10:28] {Threei} if you look forward, it's an oil price killer
[10:28] {Threei} which is good
[10:28] {nemo} for the consumer, yes
[10:28] {Threei} which way market choses to look at it - totally mood dependent
[10:28] {Threei} right, and consumer is major concern
[10:28] {Threei} but anyway, we will know very soon
[10:29] {nemo} waiting with baited breath
[10:29] {nemo} wonder where that saying came from?
[10:29] {Threei} 30 seconds
[10:30] {nemo} the stress is unbelievable

[10:33] {Threei} demon seed
[10:33] {Threei} ok... saved by the kind girl again, but keep in mind:
[10:33] {Threei} we have 4 ladies in the room now,
[10:33] {Threei} so as Banderas said in Four Rooms,
[10:33] {Threei} Don't misbehave!
[10:34] {nemo} me....never
[10:35] {Threei} can't get a feel here, bounce or stall
[10:35] {nemo} not that I'm qualified, but lookin at the spy and the Q's you have to wonder if they're quasi-bear flags
[10:36] {Threei} this is my feeling
[10:36] {Threei} but if NQ breaks over 1700 here, sizeable bounce is likely to start
[10:37] {Threei} ok, who is in the mood to start trying for bounce,
[10:37] {Threei} Long Setup: LVS .80 break
[10:37] {Threei} if stays above .70
[10:38] {Threei} if loses .70, play is different:
[10:38] {ese} not quasi.....imo....they are
[10:38] {Threei} let's look for double bottom off .60
[10:39] {nemo} just qualifying ese
[10:39] {Threei} also,
[10:39] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM .30 break
[10:40] {Threei} don't chase, let' it pull back
[10:40] {Threei} there
[10:40] {Threei} next break is entry
[10:40] {Threei} stop is under .20 for hardcore scalpers
[10:40] {Threei} .15 for more sane ones
[10:40] {Threei} LVS invalidated
[10:44] {Threei} don't see clear setup forming on double bottom either
[10:47] {Threei} Short Setup: LVS .60 break

[10:48] {nemo} big sell orers @.70
[10:48] {Threei} yup

[10:48] {Threei} with ridiculously tight stop
[10:48] {nemo} like .02?
[10:48] {Threei} above .70
[10:49] {nemo} yeah...
[10:51] {Threei} HIG formed .90 - 27 range
[10:51] {magoo} problem w/hig is l;ike yesterday..might just freeze
[10:52] {magoo} ok dip buyers come on in....
[10:52] {Threei} if makrte repeats this yesterday comatose state, so will HIG most likely
[10:52] {Threei} things run in place very fast
[10:57] {Threei} cover half LVS near support
[10:57] {Threei} take advantage of aggressive entry
[10:58] {Threei} see if we get breakdown for the balance

[11:37] {Threei} AmEx Global Business Travel Forecast: Expects increases in airfares, especially in business class, in 2010
[11:37] {Threei} - A prolonged period of weak demand in the travel industry depressed prices across travel categories in 2009, most notably in hotel, which as an industry can not reduce capacity as well as airlines and car rental companies. Following this weakened demand in 2009, American Express Business Travel expects a pent up need for travel and meetings to be unleashed in 2010. Fuel prices, along with sustained signs of a restarting economy, could also generate slight up-ticks in travel category prices worldwide, particularly in Asia Pacific.
