[10:49] {ese} .30 to .35 area
[10:49] {ese} too late
[10:49] {Threei} market retreats a bit
[10:49] {Threei} RIMM is very sensitive to the market here

[10:59] {ese} this aone thing is nuts also.....now up 14% on the day
[11:00] {Threei} I want to find GLD top
[11:02] {Threei} could take a few tries
[11:02] {Threei} lave it alone if not ready
[11:02] {Threei} but if you are
[11:03] {Threei} Short Setup: GLD .25
[11:03] {Threei} stop .45
[11:03] {Threei} that retest of the high could easily turn out double top, that's qwhy I say could take a few tries
[11:04] {ese} it just occured to me.....i got heck from my teacher this morning.....with the rimm trade......man i haven't gotten heck from a teacher since 1972......sheesh it never ends
[11:04] {Threei} lol

[11:04] {Threei} but I want to learn
[11:05] {ese} your doing just fine by yourself
[11:05] {dino} stj sm l .00
[11:06] {Threei} market spike
[11:07] {Threei} good chance for GLD NOT to make new high, put in lower one and start crashing
[11:07] {Threei} break of .20 would signal downtrend from here
[11:07] {Threei} and if that happens won't be a scalp for me
[11:08] {Threei} hah
[11:08] {Threei} look at this:
[11:08] {Threei} - US equity indices opened higher for a second consecutive morning today and gained steadily in early trading. Dollar weakness is feeding into the picture, as the greenback continues to absorb fallout from the UK Independent's sensational (and now mostly discredited) claims about major industrial and crude producing nations dumping the dollar for oil trading.
[11:09] {Threei} now mostly discredited is opereative part
[11:09] {ese} l stj .00
[11:09] {dino} been talking about that for years
[11:10] {Threei} - The greenback limped into the New York session, still suffering damage from the UK Independent's big front-page article on the demise of the dollar despite subsequent denials by numerous officials. Dealers noted the whole drama showed the continuing vulnerability of the dollar and its inability to sustain strength in this environment unless there was a fresh bout of risk aversion.
[11:10] {dino} use your looney
[11:11] {Threei} don't do it GLD
[11:12] {nemo} aig top?
[11:13] {Threei} not sure

[11:32] {Threei} okay guys, GLD comment:
[11:32] {Threei} now that we are solidly at 1:1,
[11:33] {Threei} I have stop trailed to above breakeven, half covered,
[11:33] {Threei} and I want 101.70 - .80 area for eventual cover
[11:33] {Threei} scalpers be happy with what you have
[11:34] {Threei} we got 6 plays so far, won 5, got stopped on one
[11:34] {Threei} right?
[11:34] {Threei} so I have a traditional question
[11:34] {Threei} can I go home?
[11:34] {nemo} sure...now that you're there, whadya' gonna' do?
[11:35] {Threei} I didn't think that far
[11:36] {dino} don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out
[11:36] {Threei} there is a door?
[11:36] {strider} Is it the gap up on daily that makes you short GLD against the market trend? The double top?
[11:36] {strider} I'm +.10 on GLD by the way. thx.
[11:37] {Threei} double top is my favorite reversal formation,
[11:37] {Threei} and gold moving to new all time highs on USD weakness... how often do we see sutainable moves in gold?
[11:38] {Threei} I am willing to try and bet against it, as USD tests annual low,

[11:46] {nemo} and wee beasties
[11:49] {Threei} while we are waiting for the resolution on GLD and some other play to come along,
[11:50] {Threei} anyone went to watch this new Moorish movie?
[11:50] {Threei} good boy GLD
[11:50] {nemo} no
[11:50] {dino} nope, no desire to
[11:51] {Threei} neither here... he is a bit too puke-inducing for me
[11:52] {Threei} stop to above .20 on GLD
[11:52] {Threei} bidding 1/4 more .85
[11:55] {ese} i'm back....(say that with a scary tinge to the voice)
[11:56] {Threei} add that austrian-kaliforrrrnian accent
[11:56] {Threei} change it to "I'll be back"

[12:07] {nemo} just blew through
[12:07] {Threei} there was one 10:56 and 11:07
[12:07] {nemo} how about hig bottom?
[12:08] {Threei} .38 would be a long trigger on HIG but
[12:08] {Threei} I'll skip it personally
[12:08] {nemo} o.k. I'll bite...
[12:08] {Threei} doesn't feel right
[12:08] {nemo} why?
[12:09] {nemo} can't put your fist on it?
[12:09] {Threei} I can't see today's rally as anything but pure USD weakness phenomenon
[12:09] {Threei} and this reason is bound to play out rather quickly
[12:09] {dino} i see it as paniked shorts
[12:10] {Threei} it was all warm and fuzzy to get morning longs
[12:10] {dino} w/blow off top coming imo
[12:10] {magoo} i see it as dip buyers chasing in
[12:10] {Threei} yes dino, and look at volume
[12:10] {Threei} not only it's a blow-off top,
[12:10] {Threei} it's a blow-off top on very qyestionable volume
[12:11] {dino} right, yesterday too
[12:11] {nemo} volume looks solid today
[12:11] {dino} so i tell you what i yell to magoo at 3:50 every day..."clean 'em up"
[12:11] {Threei} on what??
[12:11] {Threei} volume is ridiculous
[12:11] {Threei} except gold
[12:12] {Threei} oh come on dino... surely you just mean those beer bottles magoo tends to leave all over the floor
[12:12] {dino} canadian $ new high for year

[12:14] {dino} see, even you like a weaker currency
[12:14] {Threei} of course I do.. I make money in USD and convert it to CAD
[12:15] {Threei} my happiest conversions were with loonie at .60
[12:15] {Threei} not so much near parity
[12:16] {dino} indeed
[12:16] {dino} vq spike

[12:25] {Threei} not that there is anything wrong with it...
[12:26] {dino} lol
[12:27] {Threei} by the book, stop on GLD can be trailed to above .15
[12:28] {Threei} in practice, 5 cents is not overly important here
[12:28] {Threei} so, kind of personal choice
[12:28] {Threei} keep it above .20 to leave it some breathing room
[12:28] {Threei} or trail and keep it strangled
[12:29] {magoo} AIG
[12:30] {magoo} callee coil @ .77
[12:30] {magoo} if thuiis was in blue.......

[12:34] {Threei} ISLD/INET

[12:35] {Threei} looks right to me strider
[12:35] {dptl} ok thx ye just updated mine
[12:35] {Threei} but the way I see it:
[12:35] {Threei} at this point, after yeileding nice profit and hanging arounbd, deciding which way to resolve
[12:35] {Threei} stock is no longer a subject of thinking and making some decisions.
[12:36] {Threei} It's simple trade management done by the routine
[12:36] {Threei} partial out, trail
[12:36] {Threei} wait for the next partial
[12:36] {Threei} and let the nature take its course
[12:36] {Threei} we get into all kinds of troubles when we try to outsmart the nature
[12:38] {strider} DLTR

[12:44] {strider} whatcha think of ALTH, Vad?
[12:45] {Threei} chart is right for the break but it's very slow and market-dependent...

[12:45] {strider} True. Only 35 cenets average range. thx.

[13:12] {Threei} finally
[13:12] {Threei} Based on the outcome of the meetting we held yesterday with The President of
[13:12] {Threei} federal republic of Nig,we came to a conclusion that we have to pay you
[13:12] {Threei} the sum
[13:12] {Threei} of $5.4m to this recomfirm your name/phone/occupation/address

[13:18] {fernp} WFC db , Vad?
[13:19] {nemo} yep
[13:19] {Threei} formally, yes...
[13:19] {Threei} problem is:
[13:20] {Threei} .73 is DB confirmation, right?
[13:20] {Threei} and .60 support
[13:20] {Threei} so 1:1 would be around .85 - .90,
[13:20] {Threei} which is within easy reach of day high
[13:20] {Threei} looking at market chart,
[13:20] {Threei} do you see it likely to retest day high any time soon?
[13:21] {fernp} NO. I played .66 - .71 w/stop uder .60 (micro sclap)
[13:21] {Threei} :)
[13:24] {Threei} little quick scalp off obvious support with stop right under it is the only way I'd play WFC

[13:48] {Threei} I didn't expect to find an answer
[13:48] {Threei} it'
[13:48] {nemo} I got the inside scoop....
[13:48] {nemo} don't tell anybody...
[13:48] {nemo} here it is....
[13:48] {Threei} it's a process of quest that had me excited
[13:48] {nemo} Pssssstttt....

[14:08] {Threei} WFC is beyond brutal
[14:08] {Threei} my instict to short everything in sight was right
[14:08] {nemo} look at aig and fcx
[14:08] {magoo} timing was off
[14:08] {Threei} not really, GLD was just right
[14:09] {Threei} the rest kept me away mostly because of volatility, not timing
[14:13] {strider} Ah...first case of scalper's regret. exited CIEN short at 13.19.
[14:15] {Threei} from where?
[14:15] {strider} .30
[14:16] {strider} no, .32
[14:17] {nemo} why @ .19?
[14:18] {strider} There was no reason to exit there. I got restless, cause I had been holding it for about 40 minutes. My bad.
[14:19] {nemo} no support until back on the 4th of September...then again 1:2 nothing to sneeze at
[14:19] {strider} ka-choo.
[14:19] {nemo} cute
[14:22] {dino} air pocket
[14:22] {Threei} much appreciated
[14:23] {Threei} what I'd like to see from here for the next month or so is,
[14:23] {Threei} big USD jump,
[14:23] {Threei} big gold/oil dump,
[14:23] {Threei} nice heslthy market pullback
[14:23] {Threei} healthy
[14:24] {dino} screw the bears, then screw the bulls
[14:24] {Threei} it's time, isn't it
[14:24] {dino} frustration incorporated
[14:24] {Threei} bulls had it too easy lately
[14:24] {Threei} and bears all but gave up
[14:24] {dino} pretty much
[14:25] {Threei} so from our stinkin' scalpers point of view... it's time to kill the other side
[14:26] {Threei} since we are side-neutral
[14:26] {nemo} indifferent
[14:27] {Threei} and don't give a flysing sneeze about bear or bull
[14:29] {dino} agnostic
[14:29] {nemo} Reminds me of a joke...
[14:29] {magoo} timing was off
[14:29] {nemo} I think I told this one...
[14:29] {nemo} What does a dislexic agnostic do? (should be easy)
[14:30] {magoo} quotes were stuk
[14:30] {dino} ?
[14:30] {nemo} Spends his time wondering if there is a Dog
[14:30] {dino} lol
[14:30] {nemo} clean one
[14:31] {larisa} actually it is an insomniac dyslexic agnostic :)
[14:31] {nemo} well that's one that lies awake at night...works for me
[14:32] {Threei} I object against using three longer than 2 syllable words in a row
[14:32] {Threei} insomniac
[14:32] {Threei} dyslexic
[14:32] {nemo} Hey...you used 4 multi-syllable words in one sentence earlier this week
[14:32] {Threei} agnosti
[14:34] {Threei} CNN won't shut up about credit card companies hiking rates - ahead of new rules
[14:34] {Threei} so let me get this straight - lawmakers decided to protect little guy
[14:35] {Threei} which led to rate hikes?
[14:35] {Threei} nice
[14:35] {nemo} yeah...lawmakers always ....the pooch
[14:35] {Threei} thank you idiots
[14:35] {Threei} what's next they intend to fix?

[14:37] {nemo} Funny situation...how many people will say "screw it" and not pay their credit cards.

[14:37] {dino} scariest statement in usa, ron reagan said is "i'm here from gov't and i'm here to help"
[14:38] {nemo} Especially if you've lost your job and there's nothing on the horizon
[14:38] {Threei} the following dynamic image expresses my take on them quite clearly: http://realitytrader.com/vad/giveadamnprogress2mz.jpg
