Oct 21 2009

Not a very active day, and mostly flat monetary wise. We expected reversal to the downside, but it came with no clear setups not really offering opportunity to profit. Doesn't matter much though - we seem to finally start the descent, and there will be enough opportunities. Relentless climb up was becoming tired.

[14:21] {Threei} (US) President Obama: Winding down TARP portions aimed at larger banks; major banks that were in critical condition in 2008 require no new Govt assistance

[15:00] {Threei} if market helps, certainly a candidate
[15:00] {nemo} look at aig
[15:04] {nemo} paint dry yet?
[15:05] {Threei} if I miss another trade because of typing to answer you...
[15:05] {nemo} oh yeah, my fault...
[15:05] {Threei} it ought to be someone's
[15:07] {Threei} USEG Files $100M common shelf (6.41, +0.11, 1.75%)

[15:14] {Threei} WFC Hearing downgraded at Rochdale (30.08, -0.38, -1.25%)
[15:14] {Threei} that's trhe reason for a drop??
[15:14] {nemo} perfect
[15:14] {Threei} watching for bounce entry
[15:14] {nemo} market dropping
[15:15] {nemo} aig strong
[15:15] {Threei} 30 break long
[15:15] {Threei} stop under .95
[15:15] {Threei} invalidated
[15:18] {Threei} reestablished
[15:19] {Threei} nope
[15:19] {nemo} wow
[15:23] {Threei} market is really nervous
[15:23] {nemo} like waiting for a pregnancy test
[15:24] {nemo} well...maybe not
[15:24] {Threei} red close today would be a thing of beauty
[15:24] {Threei} as another indication of topping
[15:24] {nemo} yeah, for us masochists
[15:25] {Threei} [09:55] {Threei} but my woprking assumption at this point is:
[15:25] {Threei} [09:55] {Threei} it's not a rally anymore,
[15:25] {Threei} [09:55] {Threei} it's last shakeouts before plunging,
[15:25] {Threei} [09:55] {Threei} market won't make it too easy for shorts
[15:25] {Threei} if we close in red, it will ber another and quite heavy adition to that side of argument
[15:27] {nemo} low volume day
[15:28] {Threei} but look how volume piocks up on this plunhe
[15:28] {nemo} yes
[15:28] {nemo} two red days in a row would be a first for a while
[15:32] {Threei} Market Internals update at 2:00pmET
[15:32] {Threei} - NYSE volume 950M shares, about 8% above its three-month average; advancers lead decliners by 1.1:1.
[15:32] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 1.99B shares, about 6% above its three-month average; advancers and decliners about even.
[15:32] {Threei} - VIX index -0.3% to just under 21.00
[15:32] {Threei} that's not really low volume day
[15:32] {nemo} no, it's still below the recent average...arguably within same parameters as recent regular volume
[15:33] {Threei} what's recent?
[15:34] {Threei} 3 months sounds reasonable tome
[15:34] {nemo} my measurements are average of last 100 days
[15:34] {Threei} and this is truly drastically different from 3 month... got it
[15:35] {nemo} no...I was just being specific
[15:38] {Threei} White House's Summers: USD will remain top reserve currency for foreseeable future; World has no viable alternative to USD
[15:38] {Threei} - takes long term Govt indebtedness 'seriously'; deficits in the short term are required to offset lack of spending in private sector; deficits to become a concern when private spending expands
[15:38] {Threei} - administration budget should ensure debt levels move back to sustainable, steady, or declining pace
