Nov 04 2009

Nice day with 4 wins out of 5 calls, and the stop was whooping 6 cents. The only disappointment was that we got the right read on the selling closer to the end of day but haven't found right entry for FAZ, missing potentially full dollar play.

Session Time: Wed Nov 04 00:00:00 2009

[07:10] {ese} good morning.......
[07:11] {ese} i have this sneaking suspicion that no one is going to be up this early but i'm just chiming into to say that i have to catch a 7:00am ferry off the island

[08:10] {strider} ese:)
[08:11] {strider} Listened to conference call last night. Didn't seem so terrible to me, but what do I know?
[08:11] {nemo} well...a couple of months ago they got kiboshed by the perceived threat of coming competition
[08:12] {strider} Yeah. dino pointed it out to me. He said you & he played it then.
[08:12] {nemo} yeah
[08:12] {nemo} looks like it might break here
[08:12] {strider} I'm long sm in another acct..from 15.99

[08:14] {nemo} where do you get your short info?
[08:14] {strider} unless they covered last night.
[08:15] {strider} Yahoo finance? Is it wrong?
[08:15] {nemo} with any of that stuff, it's how fresh the data
[08:15] {strider} They only publish it once a month , don't they? Was from the middle of October.
[08:16] {nemo} That's my point. Like swinging at a fastball after the catcher is throwing it back to the pitcher
[08:19] {Les} gm

[09:11] {strider} Those pics look great, vad. How long you been doing photog?
[09:11] {fernp} those places really exist or are virtual places? :-) nice pics, Vad
[09:11] {Threei} they do fern, just ask patience or ese :)
[09:11] {Threei} depends on how you count strider...
[09:12] {strider} fingers and toes?
[09:12] {Threei} first camear I held in my hands was Smena 6, and I was 8
[09:12] {cosmo} nice racoon you got there
[09:12] {Threei} developing B&W film and making prints in my own darkroom
[09:13] {strider} If you can remember that, it obviously was important to you then.
[09:13] {Threei} something fascinated me about it that early, yes
[09:13] {Threei} now, 40 years and countless cameras later, it became major hobby
[09:14] {lasertrev} morning
[09:14] {Threei} trev :)
[09:14] {strider} Do you sell them?
[09:14] {Threei} only as a stock, just to make a hobby pay for itself
[09:15] {cosmo} the real money comes after the artist dies
[09:15] {Threei} but I will look into selling them as prints... when I find time to look into it :)
[09:15] {strider} STEC isn't exactly jumping off the chart, is it nemo?
[09:15] {Threei} hmmm... don't give me any ideas cosmo

[10:03] {nemo} oops wrong window
[10:04] {nemo} so numbers come in below expecations and we get a spike
[10:05] {Threei} my feeling is, it's not about any numbers today,
[10:05] {Threei} it's about language in FOMC decision
[10:05] {Threei} either they stay with "keeping rates low for extended period of time"
[10:06] {dino} ash sm l .52
[10:06] {nemo} so market thinks, so far anyway, Fed not pulling the punch bowl for the big banks?
[10:06] {Threei} or they say "may start hiking rates sooner than expected" - and market drops like there is no tomorrow
[10:06] {dino} cedc jumpy

[11:25] {Threei} or just don't see the need to spend money on that
[11:25] {nemo} F1 high end racing though
[11:26] {Threei} self-indulgence more than practically useful advertising venue at this point
[11:27] {Les} really. I thought they took brand advertising in racing more seriously.
[11:27] {Threei} things tend to shrink during tough economic times, and unnecessary fat gets trimmed first
[11:27] {dino} grmn rinsed
[11:27] {fernp} Vad, buy some Qs shares to see if the chart moves a bit

[11:36] {Threei} we have like 8 out of 10 hit rate on it
[11:38] {Threei} four reasons for my relative inactivity
[11:38] {Threei} 1. we have 100% hit rate today so far, and I want to keep it this way so I could ask "can I go home/"
[11:38] {strider} my relatives aren't that active, either.
[11:38] {Threei} 2. market is solid frozen at the moment
[11:38] {Threei} lol strider
[11:39] {Threei} 3. the closer we are to FOMC the less readability in the market
[11:39] {Threei} and
[11:39] {nemo} NUMBER FOUR!!!!
[11:39] {Threei} 4. fern totally has me confused - I have hard time envisioning plant as an animal with two eyes
[11:39] {nemo} shouldn't cogitate such things
[11:40] {Threei} and now nemo makes me reach for dictionary
[11:40] {strider} stec looks pretty sick
[11:40] {nemo} cogito ergo sum...same thing
[11:40] {Threei} doesn't matter.... I see word longer than two syllables, I reach for dictionary... reflex
[11:41] {nemo} but you use that fundibulum thing all the time
[11:41] {strider} Russian doesn't have 2 syllable words , does it? All 10 and 12 syllables.
[11:41] {Threei} chronoclastic infundibulum
[11:41] {nemo} yeah....that
[11:41] {Threei} but that's Kurt Vonnegut's fault
[11:42] {nemo} Ahhh...pick on the dead guy
[11:42] {Threei} why strider... vod-ka
[11:42] {strider} oh, yeah. And 'purple jesus'
[11:42] {Les} ??
[11:42] {strider} southern drink
[11:43] {strider} grape juice and anything alcoholic
[11:43] {strider} really nasty
[11:43] {Les} ok. Was thinking not well chosen marketing idea if the brandname was purple jesus
[11:44] {strider} You could sell it here....if it didn't cost more than 99 cents
[11:44] {Les} over here we call that wine
[11:44] {strider} no. PJ comes from a bottle. Wine comes from a box.
[11:44] {strider} now, hig gets dbl bottom
[11:45] {nemo} lower volume than the last
[11:47] {strider} dio, hsic?
[11:47] {strider} dino
[11:48] {dino} freaking rinses today
[11:49] {Threei} fern, you here?
[11:49] {fernp} yes, and you have been very imprudent. You have pronounced "...sexual" word, being mags near here
[11:49] {Threei} tru... my mistake
[11:49] {fernp} anything can happen
[11:49] {dino} hsic, watching it, but it moved quite a bit off lows imo
[11:50] {strider} true. average range only 1.12
[11:50] {Threei} I just wanted to tell you: if you are having crisis of identity, don't worry about it... nemo can't tell whether he is a lost fish or mad captain of a submarine for years, and it doesn't prevent him from trading
[11:51] {nemo} or the guy that stuck a stick in the cyclops eye
[11:51] {fernp} lol thank you I needed those words
[11:51] {Threei} or that
[11:54] {strider} re: HIG. Vad I'd noticed that you seem to be trading mostly listed these days.
[11:54] {fernp} don't you remenber the email you got from that guy who claimed, we are not real traders because we are kidding all time?
[11:55] {fernp} I think he was right :-)
[11:55] {Threei} lol
[11:56] {Threei} strider, there is a very thin, almost non-existent line between OTC and listeds these days
[11:56] {Threei} ever since ECNs were introduced on NYSE and AMEX, this line became fuzzy,
[11:57] {Threei} and they progresessed to almost similar trading
[11:57] {dino} that grmn is trading a buck range in minutes
[11:57] {Threei} It was very different when specialists handled most of the trading on listed stocks
[11:57] {Threei} and about what we tade at this moment, well,
[11:58] {Threei} NASDAQ and listeds are different in sectors represenattion,
[11:58] {Threei} we go more toward NASDASQ trading when techs start getting active
[11:58] {Threei} remember calls on JNPR for instance?
[11:58] {strider} yeah
[11:59] {Threei} and when it's financials that are most active, we are NYSE-bound almost by definition
[12:00] {dino} red scanners
[12:03] {strider} Even when charts aren't freezing, there often seems to be a slight lag betw. t&S and chart update. Anyone else notice that?
[12:03] {magoo} mine froze just then
[12:03] {magoo} TERRIBLE
[12:04] {Threei} really something on your coast guys.. ruunning smoothly here
[12:04] {magoo} almost unusable at this point
[12:04] {strider} They've got 20 quote servers and only 5 chart servers.
[12:05] {fernp} I think T/S is always more reliable than chart and Level2
[12:06] {Threei} yes fern
[12:07] {nemo} yeah, there's gonna' be a chart lag
[12:07] {dino} hsic strider, lets see if it holds .00
[12:09] {strider} almost shorted that sucker at .75
[12:10] {dino} sorry, thought you were going long at .75
[12:10] {dino} feels long to me here
[12:10] {strider} un-uh/
[12:12] {strider} it's still 1.50 off the lows. I'm not going to risk a long play hhere.
[12:14] {strider} was a CC at 10AM/ Vad, you got any news on hsic?
[12:15] {Threei} not since earnings at 7
[12:15] {strider} thanks.
[12:15] {dino} earnings
[12:16] {dino} lowered guidance
[12:16] {Threei} LVS seling picks up
[12:17] {Threei} not ready for bounce yet
[12:23] {dino} pru lod
[12:28] {Les} hgsi @ 27?
[12:28] {dino} pru l sm .50
[12:28] {Threei} why?
[12:28] {dino} .51
[12:29] {nemo} what why?
[12:30] {Threei} [12:28] {Les} hgsi @ 27?
[12:30] {nemo} oh..thought you referring to dino
[12:30] {dino} who what
[12:30] {Threei} lol
[12:30] {dino} 3i has me on ignore
[12:31] {Threei} it's on and off dino, depending on how I feel about T-rexes and stegosauruses on a particular day
[12:31] {Les} ok, me. 27, round number, good for a bounce? MACDh coming off bottom and heading to zero.
[12:32] {Threei} I don't trade like this Les
[12:32] {Threei} I need a setup
[12:32] {strider} hsic looking more like a short, eh dino?
[12:32] {Threei} whole number is just something to watch for but not a setup in and off itself
[12:33] {dino} dk strider, holding well, it to market imo
[12:33] {Threei} and MACD... I wouldn't know, I don't watch it all :)
[12:33] {strider} you want extra cheese with that?
[12:33] {nemo} hgsi double bottom, would need break of .05 with stop of .95 and increasing volume
[12:33] {dino} but who knows, your guess as good (or better) than mine
[12:33] {Les} 27 is earlier zone of horizantal consolidation, yeh I know u don't watch it
[12:34] {dino} grmn feels like re-test in making
[12:34] {strider} do you play shorts/?
[12:34] {nemo} don't wear shorts
[12:34] {dino} yes
[12:34] {Les} ok, so lack of vol. not helping out...
[12:34] {strider} just didn't remember.
[12:36] {dino} more longs last few day, mkt down 7% fast. odds, imo
[12:36] {dino} grmn sm l .50
[12:36] {dino} we get around 10,100; 1090 shorting more
[12:41] {Les} there's yer volume in HGSI
[12:41] {nemo} see that volume increas on break of .05, that would have been it
[12:42] {Les} yeh there is definate pattern to that. that's what i came here to learn
[12:44] {fernp} PRU on lows, will it break lod?
[12:44] {Threei} Long Setup: LVS .05 if stays above 15
[12:45] {nemo} big stop
[12:46] {Threei} no read on PRU
[12:46] {fernp} ok
[12:46] {nemo} in by the way
[12:46] {strider} in
[12:48] {Threei} no go
[12:48] {fernp} no go
[12:49] {Threei} US Senate passes procedural vote on extension of homebuyer credit and jobless benefits; final vote due later today
[12:53] {strider} more downside to FITB?
[12:53] {Threei} we are too close to FOMC now
[12:53] {strider} k
[12:53] {Threei} stay away from stocks that are likely to be affected by announcement
[12:54] {Les} Im in total ignorance Vad
[12:54] {Les} what is FOMC?
[12:54] {Threei} Fed rate decision today
[12:54] {nemo} Federal Open Market Committee
[12:54] {Threei} 2;15
[12:54] {Les} ah, to increase or not to increase, that is the question is it?
[12:55] {Threei} while rates themseves will stay put, language about future policy is a major concern
[12:55] {magoo} fellow obama meathead comrades
[12:55] {nemo} who?
[12:55] {Threei} rofl
[12:55] {nemo} nice mags
[12:55] {Les} lol well done
[12:56] {Threei} couple days ago when one of meatheads said they may "change language", which was perceived as hint of rate hikes coming sooner than expected, market dropped like stone
[12:57] {dino} missed hsic
[12:57] {nemo} wonder if that was purposely run up the flagpole to adjust the language for today?
[12:58] {Threei} you just can't let any conspiracy pass by, can you
[12:58] {nemo} that would be prudent
[12:58] {nemo} probing market reactions
[12:58] {nemo} I wouldn't call that a conspiracy
[12:58] {Threei} what to probe
[12:59] {nemo} market reaction to language change
[12:59] {Threei} I can tell you market reaction on such announcement without any probing
[12:59] {Threei} do you think Ben can't?
[12:59] {nemo} Nobody is Darth Vad
[13:00] {Threei} here, let me go out on a limb:
[13:01] {strider} Crash!
[13:01] {Threei} if they say they start tightening in Q1 2010, market will be lucky to finish today -300
[13:01] {Threei} -500 most likely
[13:02] {Threei} buy all FAZ and QID you can
[13:02] {nemo} if not +300 +500 most likely
[13:02] {Threei} faint for two hours
[13:02] {Threei} come out of it stinkin rich
[13:02] {Threei} nope, that part is wrong
[13:03] {Threei} no +500 today in any case
[13:03] {Threei} and +300 is very unlikely
[13:04] {magoo} so odds favor down then, because in both scenarios..1 gets u 500 pts and other not even close
[13:05] {Threei} that's my bias
[13:05] {Threei} and remember, first minutes after annoucement are extremely volatile
[13:06] {Threei} especially you guys at east coast, be double careful
[13:07] {Threei} BCRX Ticks higher on renewed takeover speculation (9.68, +0.37, 3.97%)

[13:13] {nemo} who says you aren't already there Strider?
[13:13] {Threei} but if you want the sppediest spped of all speeds possible...

[13:18] {Threei} no new news
[13:20] {Threei} Preview: FOMC rate decision and statement due around 2:15pmET
[13:20] {Threei} Though several central banks worldwide have started to raise their rates, forecasters unanimously expect the FOMC to continue to hold its rate at 0.25% today. The debate amongst analysts focuses on how and to what extent the FOMC statement today will be modified. Some analysts believe the Fed is eager to show its intention present exit strategies in the near term, while others argue against such a move today.
[13:21] {Threei} Most of the talk has been centered on the "extended period" language in the policy statement. Many analysts are looking for some tweak of that statement as a signal that the FOMC is getting serious about its exit strategy, even if it has no intention of raising rates any time soon. Other posit that the FOMC will take a more cautious approach today, given the bad reaction markets had to the recent confirmation that Fed has been testing reverse repo operations for the last several months.
[13:21] {nemo} yeah...conspiracy...
[13:22] {magoo} quote freeze now..u nemo?
[13:22] {nemo} no
[13:22] {strider} not me.
[13:22] {Threei} fine here...
[13:22] {magoo} grrrrrrrrrrrr
[13:23] {dino} you know, it's a ridiculous to worry about the wording. they are not raising rates for a very long time
[13:23] {nemo} I'm only concerned with the market reaction, not the wording
[13:24] {dino} the banks can't handle it, nore can employers, the debtors, and the unemployed
[13:24] {Les} I dunno Vad. Do they have any vestige of pride in US monetary policy? US is joke of the world now. Do they keep playing the dunce or start to seriously address issue?
[13:24] {nemo} Dunce
[13:24] {Les} talking rate rise at some point in future
[13:25] {Threei} you know,
[13:25] {Les} I'd like to think they'll talk about it...
[13:25] {magoo} doesnt matter dino..nemo correct{cant bbelieve i said that} all matters is mkt reaction and its 100% gonna be based off wording
[13:25] {Threei} I don't believe the world fares that much better that it could hold US as a joke
[13:25] {Les} i know i know its mkt reaction but....
[13:25] {nemo} hurts, huh Mags
[13:25] {dino} the only way out is through inflation les, we know it, but to raise too soon will have reverse effect, deflation which will bankrupt the entire system. so steady we go for 6-10 months
[13:26] {nemo} yeah, especially with Commercial Real Estate fiasco coming
[13:26] {Threei} I mean, show me who is so wise and strong that they could be prud of their achievets and belittle USA?
[13:26] {Threei} UK?
[13:26] {Threei} Freance?
[13:26] {Threei} Russia?
[13:27] {magoo} canada he he
[13:27] {dino} deflation will shut it all down, so rate increases not an option, yet
[13:27] {Threei} who avoided getting involved in whole finacial debacle?
[13:27] {dino} nobody
[13:27] {dino} we actually sold the junk to them, lol
[13:28] {Threei} so why don't they all stop playing suprior and shut the f up
[13:28] {nemo} mmmhhh...may be worth janitorial attention
[13:28] {Threei} I just hate this whiff of superiority
[13:28] {dino} who cares what "talking heads say" just watch the bond market
[13:29] {Threei} coming from those who try to sdell their impotence as a virtue
[13:29] {dino} i think there's a pill for that
[13:29] {Threei} lol
[13:31] {Threei} BCRX, wth
[13:31] {strider} tbsi dbl bottom dino.
[13:33] {dino} es is better w/the shippers, i defer to him
[13:36] {Les} nah nah nah Vad it's more now. Wall St are getting perks at taxpayers expense like no other financial industry group on earth. This is what the joke is
[13:36] {Les} sure, we were all stupid enough to load up on bad debt
[13:37] {Threei} I was answswering the "US becoming a joke" part... don't change the subject on me :)
[13:37] {Les} BUT thats what the joke is!
[13:38] {Les} no banks being nationalised yet. it'll happen, but not the way politicians and wall st want it to
[13:39] {Threei} whatever... if Canada takes over the world, I'll be just a part new empire... not first time for me, lol
[13:39] {Les} BCRX might perk up in a moment
[13:39] {Threei} part of
[13:39] {Les} :)
[13:40] {dino} les, bac and c are pretty much nationalized, as is gm
[13:40] {strider} For any other new users of Laser out there: I recommend the Lvl II advanced mouse style over the regular mouse style. price scrolling button is way too close to the sell button. Don't ask me how I know.
[13:42] {Threei} hmmm
[13:42] {fernp} lol
[13:42] {Threei} my price scrolling arrow is near Cancel button

[13:43] {strider} Was doing it from memory.
[13:44] {strider} Same difference.
[13:49] {strider} Laser: Does fast sell function also work in short positions? i.e., fast buy?
[13:49] {Threei} no
[13:49] {fernp} no
[13:50] {Threei} your buy orser will go through but old onbe won't be canceled
[13:50] {Threei} so make sure you kill it
[13:50] {strider} yeah
[13:58] {strider} nemo, Brett Steenbarger mentions FinViz in his blog today.

[15:14] {Threei} I don't see it fern
[15:14] {fernp} no, that's what i saw in FAZ
[15:14] {Threei} I think we are going to sell off

[15:19] {Threei} nah, 2:30 is largely irrelevant
[15:19] {strider} methought
[15:20] {Threei} hysteric spike on extreme volatility after FOMC
[15:20] {Threei} 3:13 is legit
[15:20] {Threei} whether it's a top or we just form bull flag, remains to be seen

[15:20] {Threei} and move to new high
[15:20] {Les} we attack?

[15:32] {Threei} this is what I hate the most
[15:32] {Threei} being right, getting read and not getting clean entry
[15:32] {Threei} make sure you hear real Russian RRR in the cRRRap
[15:33] {strider} you're going to bruise your pallete.
[15:33] {Les} so gut feeling being right, we can take chances going with slightly higher price? I had finger on button at .04, wasn't sure
[15:35] {Threei} as long as you are fine with risk, and collect some experience about your gut instinct...
[15:35] {Threei} remember that risk control comes first
[15:35] {Les} not my gut instinct, yours.
[15:35] {Threei} profit potential second
