[08:11] {Threei} NYT article comments on new obesity drugs
[08:11] {Threei} - Notes the market has been most excited about Vivus' QNEXA.
[08:11] {Threei} - Orexigen's obesity treatment CONTRAVE and Arena's LORCASERIN have underperformed Vivus' QNEXA in trials.
[08:11] {Threei} - One challenge for QNEXA might be safety as the drug contains phentermine (which was part of the notorious fen-phen combination) and topiramate which makes people feel satiated.
[08:11] {Threei} - According to Vivus, QNEXA has only small quantities of phentermine and topiramate.
[08:11] {Threei} - Some doctors are already prescribing phentermine and topiramate separately, which could hurt sales of QNEXA.

[09:21] {Threei} it's harmful, painful and overall damaging
[09:21] {strider} [07:18] * Topic is 'Don't interrupt your brain's work by thinking'
[09:21] {Threei} yup
[09:23] {Threei} I don't have clear candidates for ther open
[09:24] {Threei} watching IMMU, VVUS, HIG, CIT
[09:25] {Threei} as it's often the case with Mondays, market seems a bit puzzled by itself
[09:25] {Threei}
[09:26] {Threei} so... not trying to find a trade immediately, giving it a few to see if something shapes up
[09:31] {magoo} aapl 2 point candle

[09:38] {magoo} xmas tree complete rimm
[09:38] {Threei} let's see if we get double bottom here
[09:39] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM .95 break half lot
[09:39] {Threei} awww
[09:39] {Threei} too fast again
[09:39] {Threei} this time too fast even to type an alert
[09:39] {Threei} ok... off to something else
[09:41] {Threei} HIG, watch for pullback,
[09:41] {Threei} most likely entry zone is around .70
[09:42] {Threei} with stop under .60
[09:43] {strider} lmdia trying
[09:44] {ese} welcome mreust.....
[09:44] {Threei} HIG is getting there, get ready
[09:44] {magoo} mkts losing ground here
[09:45] {Threei} first strength from here
[09:45] {Threei} .70 break
[09:45] {Threei} if holding .60
[09:46] {fernp} in
[09:46] {Threei} big offer at .71
[09:46] {Threei} why not let it diccipate first
[09:48] {Threei} in
[09:48] {magoo} in
[09:48] {Threei} 1:1

[09:49] {Threei} you guys are relentless in your scalping zeal
[09:49] {Threei} {--- look who is talking
[09:49] {strider} market looks like crap:)
[09:49] {dino} vmi death roll continues
[09:51] {_mreust} Pretty good so far, especially for a Monday!!!
[09:51] {fernp} welcome aboard mreust
[09:52] {nemo} aig DB vad?
[09:52] {nemo} oops
[09:53] {strider} lmdia holding well against the market
[09:54] {Threei} doesn't look ready to me nemo
[09:55] {Threei} HIG feels a beter prospect
[09:55] {Threei} holding much better
[09:55] {Threei} actually, I'd repeat same setup on HIG
[09:55] {Threei} only this time with even tighter stop
[09:56] {Threei} under .65
[09:56] {nemo} aig jumped
[09:56] {Threei} and AIG starts looking like short to me
[09:56] {nemo} followig resistance trend
[09:57] {Threei} trying to find entry
[09:59] {Threei} Short Setup: AIG .90 break half lot
[09:59] {Threei} if stays under 43
[10:00] {Threei} HIG not holding .65
[10:00] {Threei} no inyerest in boiunce anymore for now
[10:00] {Threei} wanted higher low, and it's not happening
[10:01] {Threei} AIG 1:1
[10:02] {Threei} but should be good for more than that
[10:02] {Threei} so let's try and partial
[10:02] {Threei} (US) NY Fed: No inference should be drawn on policy tightening
[10:02] {Threei} - Working with counterparties on reverse repo
[10:02] {Threei} - Testing ability to do repos with tri party settlement
[10:02] {Threei} - Considering expanding counterparties for repos
[10:03] {Threei} Note: On 10/08 the FT reported that the Fed has started testing reverse repo trades and that they would allow the Fed to drain cash from the financial system once it decides to exit its current extraordinarily loose policy. The Fed has conducted at least three tests of reverse repos since March.
[10:07] {nemo} amgn short?
[10:08] {Threei} good boy AIG
[10:08] {Threei} 1:2
[10:08] {Threei} no read AMGN
[10:08] {nemo} confused...after hitting 1:1 shouldn't stop been at entry?
[10:09] {Threei} with half lot?
[10:09] {Threei} shrug
[10:09] {nemo} oh
[10:09] {Threei} I'd prefer to let it go to wash
[10:09] {Threei} if it breaks initial stop
[10:09] {Threei} ity's AIG
[10:09] {Threei} too volatile to be this literal
[10:09] {Threei} 1:3
[10:09] {Threei} out in full
[10:12] {nemo} mmmhh financials popped
[10:13] {Threei} USEG, gravity finally taking over
[10:13] {Threei} keep an eye for sharp selling,
[10:13] {Threei} should become a worthy bounce candidate, desirably under 5.50
[10:14] {nemo} cat moving up 1.20
[10:17] {nemo} Well here's one where I should have been thinking...
[10:17] {nemo} Remember how AIG broke below 43.80 last week...
[10:18] {nemo} Well, it kissed it before the open and has been down hill ever since
[10:20] {magoo} u mean 6.50 right?
[10:20] {Threei} ?
[10:20] {dino} mkt bounce
[10:21] {magoo} r 5.50
[10:21] {Threei} USEG
[10:21] {magoo} yea
[10:21] {Threei} no, I mean 5.50
[10:21] {ese} l hgsi .90
[10:21] {Threei} look at daily
[10:22] {Threei} stop under .80 ese?
[10:22] {Threei} AIG wouldn't even try to bounce with market
[10:22] {Threei} why did we ever bother to cover it all
[10:23] {ese} yes
[10:23] {Threei} nice looking setup
[10:24] {dino} vmi stopped
[10:25] {ese} stopped
[10:25] {nemo} cat still climbing
[10:25] {Threei} AIG to me: you need to grow up and hold your position for real gain... when I am going, I am going
[10:25] {Threei} over a dollar form original entry
[10:26] {ese} thought with that upward movement int the qqqq it would take hgsi with it
[10:26] {Threei} that was good setup ese
[10:26] {Threei} just didn't wortk
[10:27] {Threei} Long Setup: HIG .60 break
[10:27] {ese} agreed
[10:27] {Threei} if stays above .50 for scalpers,
[10:27] {Threei} above .40 for day traders
[10:28] {magoo} in
[10:28] {fernp} in
[10:28] {Threei} remember that interesting manner in which HIG sometimes goes and goes and goes once it finds its footing?
[10:29] {Threei} with any market help, this seems to be just right moment
[10:29] {Threei} if it works, my game plan is:
[10:29] {Threei} half out around .75 - .80
[10:29] {Threei} 1/4 around .90 - .95
[10:29] {Threei} then we will see
[10:30] {ese} l hgsi .85
[10:30] {Threei} 1:1 for hardcore pesky scalpers
[10:31] {dino} all hl l .00
[10:31] {fernp} you can call me pesky, 1:1 I'm out
[10:31] {Threei} :)
[10:31] {Threei} Market Internals update at 10:30amET

[10:36] {nemo} aig long or short?
[10:36] {Threei} must it be either or?
