Nov 10 2009

After computer crash kept me away yesterday, I was extra-careful today - 5 calls, 4 wins, no runners, just scalps. Market didn't inspire for much more either spending most of the day locked in narrow range.

Session Time: Tue Nov 10 00:00:00 2009

[07:04] {BillyD} morning Vad
[07:05] {nemo} hey billyd! :)

[07:05] {nemo} oh oh...you can see me?
[07:08] {nemo} why aig up 3$
[07:09] {BillyD} dunno
[07:09] {Threei} 5:52:49 PM
[07:09] {Threei} American International Group, Inc Moodys maintains negative outlook and current A3 ratings; says company "Should be" able to repay government loan
[07:09] {Threei} - Moodys expects that AIG should be able to repay the US government's senior secured loan and most or all of the US government's preferred stock, if the company's operations and financial markets further stabilize.
[07:09] {Threei} - Moodys added that the company's Q3 results show that its core insurance business is stabilizing.
[07:09] {Threei} **Note: The US government has invested about $121B into AIG.
[07:09] {Threei} - The government is authorized to provide up to $182B in assistance to the company.
[07:09] {Threei} this is the only thing I see
[07:10] {nemo} so there's a big "if" and it's from Moody's who were part and parcel to the ratings fraud that helped cause the debacle...I can sleep well at night
[07:10] {Les} so if it makes for some good scalps in AIG today, bring it on.
[07:10] {Les} gm

[07:13] {Threei} BLTXX Baltic Dry Bulk Index rises just under 4% (9th straight gain)
[07:14] {nemo} well, it's an improvement, kinda'...haven't done anything like that in months, and it was arguably marginally abhorrent
[07:14] {Threei} let's call it improvement in your terms
[07:14] {Threei} just to keep things in perspective
[07:14] {nemo} yes...eqzaktly
[07:17] {Les} watching BZH. Got some airtime on Bloomberg today

[07:44] {Les} difference between BNN and CNN? One's business related and other is political. Vad, you keep an eye on breaking political stories?

[08:51] {Threei} (US) Senator Dodd (D-CT): Financial regulation bill would include a consumer protection agency that would have the power to assess fees on banks with $10B or more in assets (related XLF )
[08:51] {strider} PAAS
[08:51] {Threei} here is the only thing I see that may be AMZN problem:
[08:52] {Threei} Sunday, November 08, 2009 8:56:30 PM
[08:52] {Threei} (US) A key Supreme Court ruling is nearing which could impact industries including software - Press
[08:52] {Threei} - On Monday, the court will examine what types of inventions should be eligible for a patent.
[08:52] {Threei} - The case could undermine the legal protections for software.
[08:52] {Threei} - If the Supreme Court favors the position of the US Patent Office, it could ban patents on processes and methods of doing business, such as online shipping techniques, medical diagnostic tests and procedures for executing financial trades.
[08:52] {strider} STEC moving up
[08:52] {Threei} quite a stretch, but there is nothing else that would even include the symbol
[08:52] {Threei} Nevada reports Sept casino rev $911M, -8.9% y/y; Las Vegas strip revenue $506M, -3.6% y/y (related MGM LVS PENN MPEL BYD WYNN MNTG BYI )
[08:55] {ese} stec sure has taken a hair cut ST
[08:55] {strider} Indeed.
[08:55] {fernp} WFC pulling back
[08:55] {strider} Rumor: STEC Inc moves higher on design win speculation :theflyonthewall
[08:56] {nemo} crissakes, stec probably moving higher because it fell so far
[08:56] {strider} MYGN trying to do something
[08:57] {Threei} HGSI...
[08:58] {Threei} .80 break, for fast momo players only
[08:58] {Threei} not against the market of course, but let's use this market pullback to see how well HGSI holding
[08:59] {Threei} AIG sells off hard
[09:01] {dino} scanners red
[09:02] {ese} l stec .66
[09:03] {ese} stop .56
[09:04] {ese} stopped .56 -.10
[09:05] {Les} tried to short aig at .42 no fill.
[09:06] {Les} have to leave lightening quick trades to Laser me thinks
[09:06] {Threei} (US) Fed's Yellen: Fed needs to provide accommodation to support job growth; inflation likely to go lower rather than higher
[09:06] {Threei} - Housing market has stabilized, foreclosures could put fresh pressure on home prices
[09:06] {Threei} - Unemployment could stay higher for years to come
[09:06] {fernp} DRYS pathetic
[09:06] {Threei} Les... I am not sure I understand what you are doing
[09:07] {nemo} well...you think he understands? :)
[09:07] {Threei} your HIG trade was against every rule in the book
[09:07] {Les} :P
[09:07] {strider} TEVA
[09:07] {Threei} this AIG short is not making much sense eirher
[09:07] {BillyD} AIG total guess with these jumps up/down
[09:08] {nemo} hgsi..damn
[09:08] {Threei} ?
[09:08] {magoo} actually, AIG is a bounce candidate
[09:08] {Threei} it still didn't do anything
[09:08] {nemo} break of .70
[09:09] {BillyD} what entry magoo...AIG
[09:09] {ese} flr L .55
[09:10] {magoo} well when it held .50
[09:10] {magoo} so as close to .50
[09:10] {magoo} stop like .40
[09:10] {magoo} aapl too
[09:10] {magoo} same setup[
[09:10] {dino} cvs l .57
[09:10] {Threei} the best scenario for AIG would be a quick dive under .50, for double bottom
[09:11] {dino} rocking
[09:11] {Threei} HGSI, pullback close to .70 is an entry idea
[09:12] {ese} out flr .85 +.30
[09:14] {Les} H&S forming on RIMM?
[09:14] {Threei} good eye
[09:14] {Threei} yes
[09:15] {Threei} with 63 being cloest resistance
[09:16] {ese} L stec .60
[09:17] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .80 break half lot
[09:17] {strider} in
[09:17] {fernp} stop above 63?
[09:17] {Threei} for day traders
[09:18] {Threei} hard core scalpers can keep it .95

[09:19] {Threei} reinforced by staying put while market tried to return to high
[09:19] {strider} stopped rimm
[09:20] {Threei} no ese, couldn't find entry
[09:20] {Threei} now it pulls back to where I wanted it
[09:20] {Threei} stop under .60
[09:20] {Threei} strider... not sure I understand
[09:21] {Threei} if it was scalp, why not traking profit, and if it was a day trade - why stop if resistance at 63 is not broken
[09:21] {strider} shorted at .80 stopped at .90
[09:21] {BillyD} Vad, you in HGSI
[09:21] {ese} stec just hangin around .60......come on.....get at it
[09:21] {Threei} yes billy, .71
[09:22] {Threei} strider, if stop at .90, you had over 1:1
[09:22] {strider} did the best I could
[09:22] {Threei} but why not take scalp if you play it with scalping stop size?
[09:23] {Threei} there must be alignment between your risk and reward
[09:23] {strider} you're right, vad.
[09:23] {ese} flr tanking again dino
06[09:23] * Threei slaps strider around a bit with a large Master Profit Plan

[09:26] {dino} lol
[09:27] {Threei} and I have to say, it's a third good one from him in just as many weeks
[09:28] {Threei} I may have to rethink my opinion on his sense of humor if he keeps it up till, say New Year

[09:31] {Threei} too narrow reange
[09:31] {Threei} I prefer this fpormation to be much more pronounced
[09:32] {nemo} so the left shoulder is a little impaired
[09:32] {strider} inverse c&h STEC
[09:32] {Threei} otherwise you can construct it in any accidental oscillation within narrow range
[09:32] {Threei} do this funny exercise to see what I mean
[09:33] {Threei} find any stock consolidating in narrow range, let's say 10-15 cents
[09:33] {Threei} blow up the scale of the chart
[09:33] {dino} esc out .80, +
[09:33] {Threei} and look at consolidation range trying to find patterns in it
[09:33] {Threei} you will see everything
[09:33] {Threei} C&H, H&S, whatever
[09:33] {nemo} yeah

[09:40] {Threei} not sure I understand this MTXX news
[09:41] {Threei} Zicam is allowed to sell by FDA again?
[09:41] {BillyD} Vad, look at EWBC short off .94
[09:41] {Threei} 'cause is yes, it should be at 10-15 in a blink of eye
[09:42] {Threei} .92 break would be a new low for EWBC
[09:42] {Les} false rumour. MTXX dropping as quickly as it rose
[09:42] {Threei} I'd prefer to short it into bounce
[09:42] {BillyD} ok, in already here

[09:43] {BillyD} yes
[09:43] {Threei} so far so good\, 3 out of 4

[09:47] {ese} flr drifting

[09:53] {BillyD} nice HGSI read nemo
[09:53] {nemo} ty...vad ignored me...sniff
[09:54] {Threei} hey, my gentliness and softness go just so far
[09:54] {nemo} yeah...i understand when it comes to me
[09:54] {Threei} there you go - this is how AIG short on .20 breakdown would have failed
[09:54] {nemo} I said DB=double bottom not short
[09:55] {Threei} oh
06[09:55] * nemo slaps Threei around a bit with a large READING GLASSES!!!

[09:55] {nemo} rimm might be long here
[09:56] {Threei} OK, watching AIG for some kind of short formation here

[09:57] {Threei} if .50 is broken that is
[09:57] {Threei} need some support to form
[09:57] {Threei} to give us trigger
[09:57] {Threei} .40 seems to be it
[09:57] {Threei} Short Setup: AIG .40 break
[09:57] {Threei} stop for scalpers above .50

[10:09] {magoo} TREV DCC when u can
[10:09] {BillyD} got it, thought you meant to short intop the bounce
[10:09] {Threei} sometimes it's the way,
[10:09] {BillyD} right

[12:24] {ese} cya vad have a great rest of the day.....i'm still long stec .20 we'll see what happens
[12:24] {ese} dude3
[12:24] {ese} opps dude
[12:25] {Threei} (US) Fed's Rosengren: Fed has the tools it needs to tighten monetary policy, it is just a question of timing
[12:26] {Threei} not at the point where policy tightening is required (related EUR/USD )
[12:27] {nemo} yeah...you believe him?
[12:27] {Threei} I do
[12:27] {Threei} in this particular case at least
[12:27] {nemo} Of course, he is from the government, and he's here to help
[12:27] {Threei} they really have tools to tighten, why not\
[12:27] {Threei} they assign rate
[12:28] {Threei} and it's really a matter of timing
[12:28] {Threei} what I do question is:
[12:28] {Threei} 1. whether they have good sense of timing
[12:28] {Threei} 2. whether good timing on this is even possible
[12:29] {Threei} and 3. whenever they do it, what kind of consequences it is going to have
[12:29] {Les} spy at low of day
[12:30] {Threei} it all would be fine if economy really recovered, became scorching hot and rate hikes would become possible and easily tolerated
[12:30] {Threei} as it is, major danger is that they might find themselves being forced to hike rates
[12:30] {Threei} befofe economy is strong enough to handle it
[12:30] {nemo} yeah, depending on auction results
[12:31] {Threei} Preview Treasury's $25B 10-year note auction results due out just after 1PM ET
[12:31] {Threei} - $2B increase from the Aug auction
[12:31] {Threei} - Aug bid-to-cover ratio 2.48 with an average of 2.39 over the last 3 auctions
[12:31] {Threei} - indirect bidders took 45.7% of competitive bids at last auction with 20.9% alloted at the high
[12:31] {Threei} - the when issued yield is trading roughly in line with cash market at 3.46%
[12:31] {nemo} that's funny...I mention auction and you come up with that
[12:32] {Threei} this preview is usually posted 30 min before
[12:32] {Threei} so you just mentioned it in time
[12:32] {Threei} but these auctions is a mystery to me

[12:37] {Threei} they take too much freedom with truth
[12:37] {Threei} andf I don't HATE them, too much honor
[12:37] {Threei} I don't consider them credible
[12:37] {nemo} alright, indifferent
[12:37] {Threei} and I see the agenda clearly

[12:40] {Les} can't see GLD being good to go until Uncle buck gives the word, no?
[12:40] {Threei} I will, if it's not going over .90 anymore

[12:54] {Threei} market spike
[12:55] {Threei} no news that I see... probably repositining before the auction
[12:56] {Les} sorry for any offence given
[12:57] {Les} I painfully remember playing FOMC meeting. I assume auction time is no play zone as well?
[12:57] {nemo} wfc moving up
[12:57] {BillyD} Vad, you cover any GLD at .70?
[12:57] {Threei} auctions are less volatile
[12:57] {BillyD} I did half
[12:58] {Threei} .71 billy, didn't get .70
[12:58] {nemo} tlt and tbt tend' to move a bit Les
[13:00] {Les} IO is making new highs.
[13:01] {Threei} indirect bidders take 47.3% of competitive bids
[13:01] {Threei} - 82.49% alotted at the high
[13:01] {dino} demand is strong
[13:03] {Les} yet no market reaction. Are the machines trading each other today?
[13:03] {Les} 2 days light vol...
[13:03] {dino} y
[13:03] {nemo} jeez...aig trading by appointment
[13:04] {dino} wall at .oo ash
[13:04] {Threei} it usually does that rught before exploding
[13:07] {strider} Got a serious question, Vad, I need your comments.
[13:08] {strider} I'm having trouble with the 1:1 RISK/REWARD. I shorted GLD at .78.. covered at .92. Paid commission of .0075 each way. That's a cost of .155. My reward would have been .08 less .015, or .065. This is assuming covering at .70, which you've said in the past you would call 1:1, even with slippage on entry. Now, this isn't even 1:2 reward.
[13:09] {Threei} it tagged 1:1,
[13:09] {Threei} so why do you keep the stop at its original place?
[13:09] {Threei} we trail stop after 1:1 is hit
[13:10] {Threei} slippage is slippage, you can't incorporate it in your calculations of targets since charts do not account for it
[13:10] {Threei} simply keep it within reasonable, do not chase beyond that,
[13:10] {strider} So where do you move the stop for the GLD trade?
[13:10] {Threei} and decide from the get go what it is you are after
[13:11] {Threei} if it's a scalp, take it
[13:11] {Threei} if you partial, trail
[13:11] {Threei} if a stock tagged 1:1, you hjaven't covered for some reason
[13:11] {Threei} stop must be trailed anyway
[13:11] {Threei} chart has no idea whether you are out or still holding
[13:11] {strider} trail to where?
[13:11] {Threei} to above b/e
[13:12] {Threei} to below b/e if long
[13:12] {Threei} this is standard p[rocedure
[13:12] {Threei} .70 touched, stop to above .80
[13:12] {BillyD} Vad, slippage to.77 and stop at .90 is a .13 potential loss with a potential !:1 gain of .10.....is this more of a personal discretion trade for each trader?
[13:12] {Threei} pretty much
[13:13] {Threei} and if slippage is too big, simply skip the trade
[13:13] {strider} Did you get 1:1 of GLD?
[13:13] {strider} on
[13:13] {Threei} [12:58] {Threei} .71 billy, didn't get .70
[13:13] {BillyD} I thought maybe you saw a bit more in it to account for the initial slippage.....
[13:14] {strider} where did you have your exit price set?
[13:14] {nemo} 63.20 important for RIMM methinks
[13:14] {Threei} bid .70, didn't get it,
[13:14] {Threei} canceled after little bounce and hit .71 when it returned to it but market started upticking
[13:15] {dino} out ash .83 +.309
[13:15] {magoo} how low PCLN go vad iyo?
[13:15] {Threei} no idea

[14:17] {dino} as for alcohol, funny, i was just walking up the street thinking about having a few beers tonight
[14:17] {Threei} I really needed some yesterday
[14:18] {Threei} but allowed myself some only around 8 pm, when things started working
[14:19] {nemo} 8 your time or mine
[14:20] {Threei} mine... why would I go of your time
[14:20] {nemo} you could drink earlier
[14:21] {nemo} Always my excuse when I drink before noon...it's after lunch somewhere
[14:21] {Threei} makes sense
[14:21] {nemo} which should scare you
[14:22] {Threei} Most Americans Favor Big-Screen TVs Over Energy Conservation
[14:22] {Threei} okay...
[14:23] {nemo} all's right with the world
[14:23] {Threei} yeah, I would seriously worry about nation mental health if it were other way around
[14:23] {dino} good to see that
[14:24] {strider} But think of all that energy you're saving while sitting on the couch watchin g the big screen TV
[14:24] {Threei} yes, I am a well known fighter against entrophy
[14:25] {dino} strider has a point, one form of energy for another
[14:25] {nemo} is that entropy or atrophy Vad?
[14:26] {Threei} entropy

[14:36] {strider} I looked at it.

[14:37] {Threei} ok
[14:37] {fernp} fly is $25 montly
[14:37] {dino} well hope the door doesn't hit him in the azz when he leaves

[14:38] {dino} magoo
[14:38] {Threei} lol
[14:38] {strider} Idiot on CNBC...a clown that has an aftermarket show.
[14:39] {Threei} nothing like brotherly love
[14:39] {BillyD} roflol
[14:39] {dino} the atlas is going to shrug
[14:39] {strider} Cramer=Motley Fool on speed.
[14:39] {Threei} you managed to finish it yet dino?
[14:40] {dino} about half way
[14:41] {dino} reardon's mill accident
[14:41] {Threei} sorry... I know it's enormous :)
[14:41] {dino} i like it
[14:41] {Threei} good
[14:41] {dino} did you read fountainhead?
[14:41] {nemo} yep
[14:41] {Threei} I like it as philosophy manifesto
[14:41] {Threei} as far as god riting goes it's not
[14:41] {dino} is it just as good?
[14:41] {Threei} good
[14:42] {Threei} it's shorter
[14:42] {Threei} lol
[14:42] {dino} the writings fine, really thows alot of what is going on today at you
[14:42] {Threei} oh, some similarities are stuning
[14:43] {dino} indeed
[14:45] {dino} i'm showing my age on it tho, had to buy pair of +1 reading glasses. the paperback type is small
[14:45] {Threei} heh... 1.25 here
[14:46] {Threei} I'd put it this way dino:
[14:46] {nemo} not quite there yet
[14:46] {Threei} both, fountainhead and atlas are based on the same philosophy, objectivism,
[14:46] {Threei} but atlas takes it more to a society level
[14:46] {nemo} as well as anthem
[14:46] {Threei} while fountainhead keeps it more to a personal level
[14:47] {nemo} Fountainhead focused on individuals
[14:47] {Threei} that's what I just said
[14:47] {dino} i will order it
[14:47] {Threei} fountainhead was first
[14:47] {Threei} and made her writing career
[14:47] {nemo} where each represents each constituent of the philosophy
[14:48] {Les} how interesting. hadn't heard of American dystopian fiction until you mentioned Ayn Rand.
[14:48] {Threei} and IMO as far as oure writing goes, Fountainhead is better
[14:48] {nemo} there's plenty of it Les
[14:48] {dino} good, looking forward to it
[14:48] {Les} I'm familiar with Huxley and Welles, but they are british
[14:49] {Threei} Orwell?
[14:50] {Les} him too :)
[14:50] {Les} sorry typo
[15:02] {larisa} wow AMZN, just noticed
[15:02] {Threei} yeah
[15:03] {fernp} Have a good evening everybody. see you all tomorrow.
[15:03] {nemo} nite fern
[15:03] {Threei} take care fern
[15:04] {dino} cya fern
[15:04] {Les} gn fern
[15:04] {Les} volume returning to aig
[15:09] {BillyD} BEXP strong
[15:10] {Threei} looks so tempting for a break
[15:10] {BillyD} yes
[15:11] {strider} long BEXP .09 hl
[15:11] {nemo} $ just jumpe
[15:12] {strider} stop below 11
[15:12] {Threei} strange entry strider
[15:12] {Threei} not here nor there
[15:12] {Threei} not a break yet,
[15:13] {Threei} but way too high for aggressive entry
[15:13] {Threei} the only reason for this kind would be to prevent missing it in case it breaks fast
[15:13] {Threei} but it's not BEXP personality
[15:14] {Les} rimm
[15:23] {Threei} SBUX CEO: Via instant coffee is not cannabilizing core business; is exceeding forecast; SBUX is done closing stores - CNBC
[15:25] {strider} move stop to .04 BEXP
[15:28] {dino} gj
[15:29] {Threei} yeah, this trailing I like
[15:30] {Threei} done according to what chart says
[15:30] {strider} thx
[15:31] {strider} Man,I hate these molasses trades,, but I'm gettin squashed on some of your super-fast stocks.
[15:32] {strider} I' sure I'll get better...but having problems with execution, mostly stop loss exits.
[15:33] {strider} I don't remember it being so tough when I was in the room 6 years ago...course I was 6 years younger then.
[15:33] {Threei} actually, executions wise it became way easier
[15:33] {nemo} different market
[15:33] {Threei} no thinking involved in executions anymore
[15:34] {strider} No, it's just manipulating the L2 screen....volume and price.
[15:34] {Threei} I guess you are simply out of shape... give it a month or two
[15:34] {Threei} it will become automatic
[15:34] {Threei} click on price, click button
[15:34] {Threei} simple as that
[15:35] {strider} No. It's not, vad. You don't know how complex the swhole thing is,,,you've been doing it too long.
[15:35] {Threei} hehe
[15:35] {Threei} if it's complex, you are doing something wrong
[15:35] {strider} Have to be ready to exist at either profit or loss. Partialling out. Lots of options to be ready for.
[15:35] {strider} exit
[15:36] {Threei} wait
[15:36] {Threei} you ARE overcomplicating it
[15:36] {Threei} it approaches your exit price, click on level 2 on your target
[15:36] {Threei} hover over sell
[15:36] {Threei} click as it's there
[15:37] {Threei} or lay it out in advance
[15:37] {Threei} that's it
[15:37] {strider} That's what you have to do...lay it out in advance. but then you also have to be ready to do a loss sell as well. and often, the volume price has to be changed, cause you're getting ready to partial out on the profit side.
[15:38] {Threei} so, while stock iks moving, click on arrow to get size down to half and lay it out
[15:38] {Threei} if it reversed on you too soon and went to a stop, just click sell
[15:39] {strider} have to change volume there.
[15:39] {Threei} no
[15:39] {Threei} faster to click twice
[15:40] {strider} I'm not partialling half most of the time. Less than that.
[15:40] {Threei} do you have two level 2s?
[15:40] {strider} yes
[15:40] {Threei} put a stock on both,
[15:40] {Threei} partial on one for sell at profit,
[15:41] {strider} sometimes they're both in use. As in this morning first thing.
[15:41] {Threei} full position at another for sell at loss
[15:41] {Threei} OK, I exhausted my versions :)
[15:41] {strider} :)
[15:42] {larisa} I say do not partial until you are more confident
[15:42] {Threei} I was just thinking that
[15:42] {Threei} but he finds a flaw with anything I suggest... so shinked back :)
[15:42] {Threei} shrinked too
[15:42] {larisa} lol
[15:43] {strider} I'll get better at it.
[15:43] {Threei} just try not to
[15:44] {Threei} you were +70 larisa? or +30?
[15:44] {larisa} I was -70. you were +30
[15:44] {Threei} right
[15:44] {strider} Vad, do you think you're system is profitable without partialling?
[15:44] {larisa} {--- honest here
[15:44] {Threei} Alzheimer...
[15:45] {Threei} I don't think... I know
[15:45] {strider} stopped , by the way
[15:45] {strider} Good. I just can't see that from here. I started at a bad time in the market.
[15:46] {Threei} let's distinguish system and one's particular execution
[15:47] {strider} Sure. I was asking about the potential for your system, without the advantage of partialling.
[15:47] {strider} I know that my execution skills are costing me money.
[15:49] {strider} Wasn't criticizing your system...only asking if partialling were a necessary part of it.
[15:50] {Threei} they are always discretionary
[15:50] {strider} k
[15:50] {Threei} I can't tell anyone to scalp or day trade
[15:50] {Threei} if you noticed, I make the distinction when call for both
[15:50] {Threei} as in:
[15:50] {strider} sure
[15:50] {Threei} for scalpers stop is this,
[15:51] {Threei} for day traders this
[15:51] {Threei} etc
[15:51] {Threei} but it's up to everyone to decide who s/he is
[15:55] {BillyD} on that note, I will call it a day...thx Vad
[15:55] {BillyD} lol
[15:55] {Threei} thank you all
[15:55] {larisa} bye all
[15:55] {dino} take care you guys
[15:55] {Threei} have a good evening, see you tomorrow
[15:55] {nemo} take it any way i can get it
