Oct 07 2009

Freeport, Bahamas conference - January 2010
Vad's sessions - 2 days, including live trading

Strong day with 9 calls and 8 wins. Variety was good also, with longs and shorts, scalps and bigger trades, and even two IPOs (BSBR and VRSK). The rest was more of garden variety: WFC, BAC, GLD...

Session Time: Wed Oct 07 00:00:00 2009

[09:52] {Threei} ese... what's with chasing...
[09:52] {Threei} .11 trigger
[09:52] {ese} out bac .24
[09:52] {Threei} GLD 1:1
[09:53] {ese} waited for break of .15 on 1min chart
[09:53] {fernp} ty again
[09:53] {ese} wanted .16 but got .17
[09:53] {Threei} not sure I understand why .15... clean resistance to break at .10
[09:54] {gnslng} ty Vad
[09:54] {larisa} people can have their own strategies and triggers sometimes :)
[09:54] {Threei} they can?
[09:54] {Threei} hmmm
[09:54] {larisa} sometimes
[09:54] {Threei} that's novelty concept :)
[09:54] {ese} was a double bottom on 1min chart vad bounce of .07 and .08
[09:54] {Threei} I see that ese, sure,
[09:54] {Threei} what I mean is:
[09:55] {Threei} you get clean double bottom setting up,
[09:55] {Threei} market helps,
[09:55] {Threei} BAC lags just a tad,
[09:55] {Threei} perfect situation for aggressive entry
[09:55] {Threei} instead of waiting for confirmation of double bottom
[09:55] {ese} yes i getcha
[09:55] {Threei} it;s not a big mover these says,
[09:55] {Threei} every cent is precious
[09:55] {Threei} 1:2 BAC
[09:56] {ese} definitely
[09:56] {Threei} says = days of course
[09:56] {cosmo} rprx can't stay seems
[09:56] {cosmo} needs to hold 2
[09:56] {nemo} good one
[09:56] {Threei} it needs VVUS...
[09:57] {ese} as i look at that.....entry at .12 would have been better.... on that 1min chart after the double bottom
[09:57] {nemo} then it'll need a law firm
[09:57] {Threei} to put it right, ese: .15 break is not a mistake per se, it's a valid strategy,
[09:58] {Threei} it's just a choice between two strategies here,
[09:58] {Threei} and IMO{ aggressive entry was better choice in this particular situation
[09:59] {Threei} WFC - that was rude
[09:59] {Threei} and stupid of me to tighten the stop
[09:59] {nemo} you were saying that about stops yesterday
[10:00] {ese} tks vad

[13:34] {strider} Hey, that's me!
[13:36] {strider} Is it still true, no shorts under $5? or was that an MBT thing?
[13:36] {Threei} it was never a fast rule - it dependend on broker's inventory,
[13:37] {Threei} and since most stocks under 5 were non-marginable
[13:37] {Threei} majority of brokers never had them for short
[13:37] {strider} thx

[15:26] {nemo} nice volume increase on this last leg up in fcx
[15:29] {Threei} OK...
[15:30] {Threei} my candidate for this push is WFC
[15:30] {Threei} went over about 25 stocks to see what follows the best right now,
[15:30] {Threei} and this one seems to be the cleanest
[15:31] {Threei} .10 is obvious resistance to break
[15:31] {Threei} ideally we get little pullback now
[15:31] {Threei} then break
[15:31] {magoo} more than a scalp?
[15:32] {nemo} time
[15:32] {Threei} hard to tell for now, depends on how strong market push is going to be
[15:33] {Threei} my favorite scenario here would be pullback closer to 29 wirth entry there
[15:33] {Threei} but if no more pullbacks, then standrad setup
[15:33] {Threei} Long Setup: WFC 29.10 break if stays above 29
