Oct 29 2009

That was not overly active but nicely profitable day. 5 calls, 5 wins - JNPR, CAT, FITB, HGSI, AMZN - everything danced just right. Market bounced just as yesterday's forecast had it.

Session Time: Thu Oct 29 00:00:00 2009

[07:26] {KSystems} Morning
[08:30] {Threei} Thursday, October 29, 2009 8:30:02 AM
[08:30] {Threei} *Q3 ADVANCED GDP PRICE INDEX: 0.8% V 1.4%E
[08:30] {Threei} INITIAL JOBLESS CLAIMS: 530K V 525KE; CONTINUING CLAIMS: 5.797M V 5.905ME
[08:30] {Threei} *Q3 ADVANCED GDP PRICE INDEX: 0.8% V 1.4%E; CORE PCE Q/Q: 1.4% V 1.4%E
[08:34] {nemo} market seems to like that report
[08:35] {Threei} not sure why but market is simply ready for bounce... it would have liked anything
[08:35] {nemo} yes
[08:40] {Threei} (US) Fed's Tarullo: new capital liquidity rules will end "too big to fail" issue; considering quantitative liquidity standards
[08:40] {Threei} **Reminder: On 10/14 Tarullo said that banks face further risk of sizable credit losses, banking system remains fragile, loan qualifications are poor
[08:40] {strider} "the Great Recession is over." Party Time!
[08:40] {nemo} yeah...but what about all that "off-balance" sheet stuff?
[08:41] {nemo} crock of taurine excrement
[08:41] {Threei} why's HIG so happy?
06[08:41] * strider slaps nemo around a bit with a large trout
[08:41] {nemo} all "financial" institutions
[08:49] {strider} mIRC sure is a pita
[08:49] {Threei} hmm?
06[08:49] * nemo slaps strider around a bit with a large 2X4 with rusty nails
[08:49] {strider} Well, it's complicated. Never mind.
[08:50] {nemo} complicated as a hang-nail.
[08:50] {strider} Have to reboot computer when I switch ISPs.
[08:50] {strider} Because of mIRC}
[08:50] {strider} Won't reconnect without it.
[08:51] {Threei} shouldn't be this way
[08:51] {strider} I agree!
[08:51] {strider} Life is hard.
[08:51] {Threei} File - Recent Servers, click on top one
[08:51] {Threei} it should reconnect
[08:52] {strider} When I switch, I should log off IRC first. Always forget. So it still thinks strider is logged on, even after disconnect.
[08:53] {Threei} ahhha
06[08:53] * strider slaps strider around a bit with a large trout
[08:53] {nemo} use the 2X4
[08:53] {Threei} it's not mirc itself then, it's server that doesn't get right message
[08:53] {strider} I guess.
[08:54] {strider} I don't know where the 2 x 4 is, nemo. Just found the trout yesterday afternoon.
[08:54] {nemo} bottom of the same menu..produces a text entry box
06[08:54] * nemo slaps strider around a bit with a large lead pipe
[08:55] {Threei} he doesn't have it unless he installed that custom-made script nemo
[08:55] {Threei} remember, one that KS wrote
[08:55] {ese} good morning
[08:55] {nemo} oh yeah...magoo went nuts on me until I got that script installed
[08:55] {nemo} dude

[08:56] {nemo} figure of speech..already there...I know
[08:56] {_Les__} How can I smack Nemo around the head before he gets me... you know, a preemptive strike?
[08:57] {Threei} those are illegal now, les
06[08:57] * nemo slaps _Les__ around a bit with a large round of Swiss Cheese
[08:57] {ese} dude

[10:02] {Threei} do so only if it doesn't drop under 9.05 before triggering,
[10:02] {Threei} srtop is under 9.05,

[10:02] {dino} stop lhcg is break of lod
[10:02] {Threei} that's our standard setup structure derived from the call

06[11:59] * fernp slaps nemo around a bit with a large trout
[11:59] {Threei} well, that's the problem

[12:00] {Threei} trialer signing up for a week, no point in going throgh complicated mirc configuration
[12:01] {KSystems} ok it seems to be up again

[12:02] {Threei} still broken
[12:02] {Threei} I just tried to click from our page
[12:03] {Threei} does it work for you KS??
[12:03] {KSystems} and blog are already up again, and as they were down too even a few minutes ago, i think they are getting their stuff running again
[12:08] {KSystems} can someone kick the snp future one tick higher please
[12:08] {KSystems} this is getting on my nerves
[12:09] {Threei} sure... why didn't you ask earlier
[12:09] {fernp} out HIG .99 I forgot about it
[12:09] {Threei} there you go
[12:09] {Threei} lol fern
[12:10] {Threei} that's what I call stress-free trading
[12:10] {fernp} im busy with this new program...
[12:10] {KSystems} thanks to whoever it was
[12:10] {fernp} lol
[12:10] {KSystems} which program, fern?
[12:10] {Threei} what do you mean whoever it was?
[12:10] {nemo} kicked the futures
[12:10] {KSystems} oh sorry, it was you
[12:10] {KSystems} of course, thanks
[12:10] {Threei} sigh
[12:10] {fernp} clockandwhistles
[12:10] {fernp} clicks...
[12:11] {KSystems} oic
[12:11] {Threei} what's the point fern?
[12:12] {fernp} create a scrip where users just have to write nick and passwd
[12:12] {nemo} Trouting is much more important
[12:12] {Threei} if it's possible with that one, must be possible with mirc as well?
[12:13] {fernp} yes
[12:13] {KSystems} yes it is
[12:13] {Threei} maybe we'd better have it unified then
[12:13] {KSystems} problem is, integrating that script into mirc is equally difficult
[12:13] {KSystems} and having it ship with mirc like the previous one for chatspace is against the license agreement
[12:14] {fernp} that's the point
[12:14] {Threei} oh I see
[12:14] {Threei} makes sense
[12:14] {KSystems} but look vad you can put a cool background image to chlicksandwhistles
[12:14] {KSystems}
[12:14] {KSystems} oh wait
[12:14] {KSystems} hey you can do that with mirc too
[12:14] {Threei} I am just not very confident in free product that may be left with no support
[12:14] {KSystems} if i just had knows this earlier!!
[12:15] {Threei} after all, how often we see such outages in mibbit?
[12:15] {Threei} it's probably second time in a year
[12:15] {nemo} yeah...but if it's at a functional stage that is useable..functionality requirements for this application will always be relatively minimal
[12:17] {fernp} but clicks... is GPL we can not sell it, but we can inform about our modificactions in a txt and be safe...

[14:23] {Threei}
[14:23] {magoo} its time too start looking for moves vad
[14:24] {Threei} not sure mags
[14:24] {Threei} market is still frozen
[14:24] {Threei} just asking for stops, IMO
[14:25] {magoo} soon
[14:25] {Threei} look at the timing of all our calls today
[14:25] {magoo} cant
[14:25] {Threei} 3 of them were over during that morning move
[14:25] {Threei} 4th one was later but rather an exception
[14:25] {Threei} CAT was moving on its own
[14:28] {Threei} (US) Senator Snowe: will not be the 60th vote to break filibuster on healthcare plan - CNBC

[14:29] {Threei} well... Lieberman's announcement was jujst as significant, no?
[14:30] {Threei} and AET didn't really react
[14:30] {nemo} forgot...amzn ballistic
[14:30] {nemo} It's time to say...GOODBYE :)
[14:30] {nemo} Off to sell politically incorrect merchandise

[14:31] {fernp} are you going to trade a friday afternoon?
[14:31] {Threei} AET
[14:32] {Threei} not sure whether it's reaction on Olympia or just spike with market
[14:32] {fernp} MET not moving
[14:33] {Threei} MET is rather GIG's brother, not AET's
[14:33] {Threei} HUM is in the same field as AET
[14:33] {Threei} GIG=HIG
[14:33] {fernp} ok
[14:34] {fernp} and AFL?
[14:35] {fernp} is breaking
[14:35] {Threei} not sure about AFL
[14:36] {Threei} I think it's HIG/MET/PRU field
[14:37] {magoo} AONE at it
[14:39] {fernp} too slow everything
[14:40] {Threei} things are in slow motion
[14:40] {Threei} even such traditionally prly ones as AONE
[14:40] {Threei} perky
[14:41] {magoo} fslr trying for high here
[14:42] {fernp} AFL triying to break .90
[14:45] {dino} lhcg out .52, +.64
[14:45] {dino} all day
[14:45] {dino} trv to .65
[14:46] {fernp} gj dino
[14:46] {dino} slow motion
[14:46] {dino} intc puzzles me
[14:46] {Threei} one legged snail moving through mollasses
[14:47] {fernp} AFL hit 1:1 and then sharp drop
[14:48] {dino} yes and all they do is say things are better every day, seems nobody believes them
[14:48] {Threei} remember I talked earlier about how these chaotic moves happen when market is inactive?
[14:48] {Threei} this is exactly what you see fern
[14:49] {Threei} and that's why I fall asleep when market gets locked like this
[14:49] {Threei} even though magoo is getting angry at me
[14:49] {dino} he gets angry w/all
[14:49] {magoo} on FSLR?
[14:52] {dino} esi more blood from the apol news, 88 area should be support, down from 115
[14:52] {fernp} you are right Vad, "chaotic moves" that the the correct expression
[14:53] {fernp} that's
[14:55] {Threei} feels to me about done for the day mags
[14:55] {Threei} I doubt it has more upside
[14:55] {Threei} unless market loses its mind and goes berserk
[14:55] {magoo} 129 a launcher?
[14:55] {Threei} could be, but risk is enormous
[14:55] {Threei} can get smacked down in a blink of eye
[14:57] {magoo} how about AMZN?
[14:58] {Threei} this one has a shot at a nice move IF
[14:58] {Threei} holding above .50, breaks .50, and market helps
[14:59] {Threei} holding above .30, sorry
06[15:03] * Threei envisions magoo sitting with his finger on the trigger, tracking every tick in AMZN with his eys, then clicking buy when .50 is brken
[15:04] {magoo} in
[15:05] {magoo} over 122?
[15:06] {Threei} if market helps, and with some srtuglle around .80 - .90 first
06[15:06] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large position in AMZN reaching 1:1
06[15:06] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large roll of cash
[15:07] {magoo} nice spot (magoo) nice read (vad)
[15:07] {Threei} partial out mags

[15:37] {Threei} 5 out of 5

[15:38] {Threei} oh mags and notice
[15:38] {Threei} FSLR never went anywhere

[15:38] {dino} going down like a rat on cheese
[15:38] {Threei} so, that's actually 6 out of 6, lol
[15:39] {Threei} FSLR lost to AMZN like Commodore to Pentium III
[15:39] {strider} GLD followed the market right up. Should it be doing that?
[15:40] {Threei} sure

[15:54] {Threei} dino... would you being HMIN expert take it overnight?
[15:54] {dino} dk
[15:55] {Threei} that's the answer of a real trader
[15:55] {dino} no overnight imo
[15:55] {dino} safer to wait and see.
[15:55] {strider} Well, maybe Marisa Tomei.
[15:56] {Threei} well... then you won't need opposable thumb
[15:56] {strider} Bwahahahahahahaha
[15:56] {dino} should get back to 31, but who knows when, thats the issue, you can get direction right, but timing is the problem
