Nov 20 2009

The day started with small scalps and small stops, then turned to the better with nice WFC short, NLST momentum trade and a few scalps. General boredom was still present though.

[09:51] {Threei} the thing with FITB lately, breaks work on it only when market gets really hot
[09:51] {Threei} when market tanks, FITB holds relatively well
[09:52] {Threei} and can be bought on pullback for a nice bounce
[09:52] {ese} yes....thats what i'm noticing
[09:52] {Threei} but buying breakout will put you in a long holding pattern
[09:52] {ese} it does hold really well against mkt
[09:52] {Threei} and can be quite unnerving

[10:37] {Threei} do it by the book Les, stop to .96
[10:37] {Les} k
[10:38] {Threei} locking profit in so you play with house money now
[10:38] {Threei} not letting trade turn into loss or even flat
[10:39] {Threei} allowing profit potential to maximize you accept the risk of it evaporating,
[10:39] {Threei} but what is booked should stays booked
[10:39] {bkhmd} .96 stop? would that not be - 2 on the remainer?
[10:39] {Threei} .95 was critical barrier

[10:54] {Les} how long you been trading mags?
[10:54] {magoo} even looked over at HIG he he
[10:54] {Threei} rofl
[10:54] {ese} the module?
[10:54] {magoo} 9 years
[10:54] {Threei} now I need nemo to start loving RIMM and my life will be whole again
[10:54] {magoo} but first 5 was idiot
[10:54] {BillyD} and HIG short worked magoo, there is hope
[10:54] {Les} ? with vad?
[10:54] {bkhmd} We all love RIMM VAD dont pass up on next set up like the one we missed lol
[10:54] {magoo} vad, how long us?
[10:54] {ese} tough task......nobody will ever love rimm
[10:55] {Threei} except first 5 les
[10:55] {Les} :)
[10:55] {Threei} that was an idiot stage :)
[10:55] {magoo} 4
[10:55] {Les} lucky to find you then. still in my first year
[10:55] {Threei} I'd have to look it up mags... on top of memory I'd say 4-5
[10:55] {strider} then mags got his hypercloud memory module, and well, the rest is history.
[10:55] {magoo} wish i met the grumpy ole boy earlier
[10:55] {Threei} lol strider
06[10:56] * Threei changes nick to Grumpy Ole Boy
06[10:56] * Threei remembers than there is no country for grumpy old men and changes back
[10:56] {magoo} one thing vad should admit if he wants to be serious...i always had a "feel" or read on momo thing
[10:56] {Threei} oh yeah
[10:56] {Threei} you live for that
[10:57] {fernp} FAS breaking lod
[10:57] {dino} nuva
[10:57] {Threei} and getting better and better in two things
[10:57] {Threei} 1, recognizing momo
[10:57] {Les} yes, i asked you because you are aggressive on some stocks
[10:57] {Threei} 2. controlling risk when momo leaves
[10:57] {Les} I remember reading of mags when AIG was white hot earlier this year
[10:57] {Threei} watch NLST guys
[10:57] {Threei} momo recognition
[10:57] {Les} thinking wow, thats big cash being made
[10:58] {magoo} yea...but like 4 years ago even..vad will confirm..we used to nail momo like BOOM remember vad?
[10:58] {Threei} I need a tissue
[10:58] {BillyD} lol...
[10:58] {Les} sentimental old goy
[10:58] {Les} boy
[10:58] {nemo} what kind of tissue vad?
[10:59] {BillyD} almost a mutiny 1 hr ago and now everyone is happy
[10:59] {nemo} what mutiny...just pissin' and moanin'
[10:59] {dino} nuva
[10:59] {dino} bi-polar bd
[10:59] {Threei} lol... it's not a democracy here, no such things as mutiny
[10:59] {nemo} yeah, the beatings will continue until morale improves
[11:00] {Threei} just one lesson left for today
[11:00] {BillyD} Vad, I thought you were gonna be Capt Bly and make everyone walk the plank
[11:00] {nemo} and then, they'll continue some more
[11:00] {cosmo} hmm...animal house
[11:00] {Threei} or hang on the mast
[11:00] {nemo} Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor!
[11:00] {Threei} I am waiting with the lesson a bit,
[11:00] {dino} heck no
[11:00] {Threei} want you to observe NLST
[11:01] {dino} lol
[11:01] {nemo} lol
[11:01] {Les} what for. further momo?
[11:01] {Threei} it's displaying very typical momo behavior
[11:01] {Les} k
[11:01] {Threei} watch pace, watch how it acts on braks and pullbacks
[11:01] {Threei} compare pace
[11:01] {Threei} see when the breaks act as trap,
[11:01] {Threei} when they are real,
[11:02] {dino} nuva hl l .50
[11:02] {Les} is typical of falling stock as well? or completely different sort of momo?
[11:02] {dino} stop lod break
[11:02] {Threei} when opullbacks are for enter and when they are hopeless, just little bounce and drift lower
[11:02] {Threei} it's very hard to put in any set of rules,
[11:02] {Threei} you need to watch it and get a feel for it
[11:02] {Threei} no Les, that's different thing
[11:03] {Threei} capitualtory selling is governed by different kind of emptions
[11:03] {Les} k
[11:03] {cosmo} ultimately, she be a heart breaker
[11:03] {Threei} they are just as scorching hot, but they are different
[11:03] {nemo} rimm (ow) again vad
[11:03] {Threei} aren't they all cos
[11:03] {cosmo} for some time now ...yea
[11:04] {dino} men lose lots of money chasing women, but rarely do they lose women chasing money
[11:04] {Threei} .30 resistance
[11:04] {Threei} watch how it acts aaround it
[11:04] {Threei} good one dino
[11:06] {magoo} when money goes out the window (ie trading losses)...women go out the door
[11:06] {dino} nuva stopped -.30
[11:06] {Threei} but the opposite is just as true
[11:06] {dino} try again lower
[11:07] {nemo} nothing more important to a relationship than money
[11:07] {Threei} when women come in the door, money goes out the window
[11:07] {fernp} lol
[11:07] {dino} w/o it lots of trouble
[11:07] {cosmo} follow the money
[11:07] {nemo} We'd still be in The Garen of Eden if it weren't for them
[11:07] {strider} I hate NUVA
[11:07] {magoo} well vad..but for me just a lil tweak...when $$ is coming in...i like to KICK my current women out the door
[11:07] {Threei} then I am thankful to them
[11:07] {dino} oh man, rinsed big time
[11:07] {strider} damn rinse-o-matic
[11:07] {Threei} that garden wsas horrifyingly boring
[11:07] {nemo} Bible leaves out the part where Eve threatened to shut off Adam if he didn't eat the apple
[11:08] {nemo} Oh, yeah, boring, eat, sleep, sex...boring
[11:08] {dino} roflol
[11:08] {Threei} what can I do nemo... I am a hunter
[11:08] {nemo} makes two of us
[11:08] {dino} how did that get us strider
[11:08] {Threei} I need to get mine in a chase
[11:08] {magoo} me hunter
[11:08] {cosmo} some say snakes used to be our friends
[11:09] {Threei} not to be given it
[11:09] {strider} dunno
[11:09] {cosmo} but matter
[11:09] {Threei} I ejoy the process of getting the prize more than consuming it
[11:09] {strider} very suspicious looking, though
[11:09] {dino} wolf is always at the door
[11:11] {Threei} Les, looking back at remark about RIMM risk becoming unacceptably high near 59.50
[11:11] {Threei} see what it did since then?
[11:11] {Les} y
[11:11] {Threei} hard shakeouts,
[11:11] {Threei} bounces,
[11:11] {Threei} but nothing even close to another break and run
[11:11] {strider} PCS c&h
[11:12] {nemo} op ex friday afternoon
[11:12] {Les} non of that is conspiracy though is it
[11:12] {strider} I'm in small at .36
[11:12] {Les} just locking in profits etc etc
[11:12] {Threei} NLST nears critical level again
[11:12] {Threei} third time
[11:12] {Threei} of course no Les
[11:12] {Threei} simple trading
[11:13] {nemo} WMT almost back to yesterday entry
[11:13] {Threei} 99% of conspiracies are meaningless bs
[11:13] {nemo} It helps those of us with paranoid delusions cope
[11:13] {Threei} give a read to
[11:13] {Threei}
[11:14] {nemo} yeah, but you're on retainer to Goldman Sachs :)
[11:14] {Threei} most of "manipulation" cries is nothing but cop out of self-responsibility for the result of your own desicions
[11:14] {Threei} of course I am
[11:15] {Threei} Goldman Sachs is very concerned about opinion of two dozens day traders
[11:15] {nemo} nlst
[11:15] {nemo} well there's only one Darth Vad
[11:16] {nemo} mags you in again?
[11:16] {Threei} one of old patterns works for NLST here
[11:16] {BillyD} it show a change
[11:16] {Threei} sewcond test of the high is more often a failure,
[11:16] {Threei} third is more often success
[11:21] {strider} reboot
[11:23] {cosmo} nlst wont die ...until it spawns
[11:23] {Threei} I believe 8 will be hit
[11:23] {nemo} any news on pru?
[11:23] {Les} can we have a go
[11:23] {Threei} it displays all signs on momo continuing
[11:23] {magoo} yes and out noew

[11:34] {Threei} NLST more or less calmed down for now
[11:34] {Threei} so, let' me nudge you in the direction I wanted you to think about
[11:34] {nemo} wfc break of .80? stop uner .75
[11:34] {BillyD} Vad, any read on WMT
[11:35] {BillyD} doesn't seem done selling yet

[11:35] {Threei} back to our sheeps
[11:36] {nemo} animal fetishes?
[11:36] {Threei} being a teenager, you probably heard from parents or teachers
[11:36] {Threei} "watch your mouth"
[11:36] {Threei} well, it does apply to trading
[11:36] {Threei} as far as mindset goes
[11:36] {nemo} sheep an wolves
[11:37] {Threei} all these negative comments you make, out loud or for yourself,
[11:37] {ese} well whats happening........dropped my son off at school
[11:37] {Threei} they form your mindset
[11:37] {Threei} tell yourself 10 times how RIMM is not working, how you always lose on it, how you hate it
[11:37] {Threei} then that one rifht setup comes,
[11:37] {Threei} and you are left in dust
[11:37] {Threei} because ou cnvinced yourself that you should ignore it
[11:38] {magoo} NLST could be done
[11:38] {magoo} ill post when i like it
[11:38] {Les} thanks
[11:38] {magoo} widowmaker remember
[11:38] {magoo} was 3 bux a week ago if i recall
[11:39] {Threei} 1
[11:39] {Les} i keep tabs on traders tweets elsewhere. all out on nlst
[11:39] {nemo} pru short, break of .75, stop .90?
[11:39] {nemo} invalidate .90 too?
[11:40] {Threei} I'd prefer aggressive entry on it
[11:40] {Threei} no breakdown worked on PRU today
[11:40] {Les} egle pushing for new high
[11:42] {Les} cat dropping hard. monthly charts suggests support around 57?
[11:43] {fernp} WMT almost hit 55 this morning and now is trading at 54. I don't know how swing traders make money
[11:43] {Threei} who says they do
[11:43] {fernp} :-)
[11:44] {Les} egle long with .90 trigger?
[11:44] {Threei} les, this is not the kind of support that is huaranteed to provide any guidance
[11:44] {Threei} why 5.90?
[11:44] {Les} ok. so breaking previous high for the day doesnt guarantee anything?
[11:45] {Threei} what are you talking about? my first comment was on CAT
[11:45] {Threei} second on EGLE
[11:45] {Threei} how do you combine them in one question?
[11:45] {Les} :P
[11:46] {Les} ok. so 57 is not "bounce" territory?
[11:46] {Threei} by itself, no
[11:46] {BillyD} back to CAT then
[11:46] {Threei} if right setup is forming and market helps, yes
[11:46] {strider} DDS salmon

[12:01] {Threei} news cycle is completely overtaken by Oprah quitting
[12:02] {Threei} never mind health care debate, economyh voes, unemployemtn
[12:02] {Les} for one person to have that much pull in a society...
[12:03] {Threei} she quits in TWO years
[12:03] {Threei} yet fokr the second day it's all TV talks about
[12:04] {Threei} there is such sense of urgency in discussing evcerything related, I start thinking.. may be during these two remaining hyears I need to watch a single show of hers?
[12:04] {Les} nah, she is going to do her own show on her own cable company
[12:05] {Les} after she quits nbc or whoever it is
[12:05] {Les} dell short?
[12:05] {Les} volume stinks
[12:05] {Threei} charts are in conflict
[12:06] {Threei} intraday is short, daily is not
[12:06] {Les} ouch thats a nasty drop on daily
[12:07] {Les} nlst holding firm into lunch
[12:08] {Threei} NLST actually formed little setup hr3
[12:08] {Threei} .50 break if holding .40

[12:19] {fernp} fell = feel
[12:22] {Threei} 42% Rate Geithners Performance As Poor
[12:22] {Threei} Twenty percent (20%) rate Geithners performance in these areas as good or excellent.
[12:23] {Threei} ok, starting tally of idiots again
[12:23] {Threei} 20% so far
[12:24] {Les} the federal government employs about 20% of the pop., don't they?
[12:25] {Les} or all state and local authorities combined...
[12:25] {Threei} interesting coincidence if so
[12:30] {magoo} [11:27] {magoo} prob breathe at 7.90 area
[12:30] {magoo} [11:27] {magoo} could be top thee
[12:30] {magoo} [11:27] {magoo} or if takes 8 can go 8.20
[12:30] {magoo} [11:28] {magoo} breahe, the .70
[12:41] {dino} .
[12:42] {nemo} mon
[12:42] {nemo} sorry
[12:44] {fernp} HIG double bottom?
[12:48] {Threei} nah
[12:48] {nemo} If I recollect correctly...Op Ex Friday afternoons are corpse-like
[12:49] {nemo} I'd say limp as a dead fish, but that hits too close to home
[12:54] {nemo} mon increasing volume on this rise, might be .25 break would be stop .15
[12:55] {bkhmd} .
[13:00] {magoo} AWIAV?
[13:01] {Threei} c
[13:02] {Threei} HIG, .75 break looks like valid short trigger
[13:04] {nemo} or .78 break long?
[13:04] {nemo} speak of the devil
[13:04] {BillyD} why nemo long
[13:04] {nemo} DB
[13:05] {nemo} lower volume spike on 2nd bottom
[13:05] {BillyD} resistance up to .83 and no support below .75
[13:05] {nemo} you ever watch dino trade?
[13:06] {BillyD} not really followed
[13:06] {nemo} does a lot of these
[13:06] {BillyD} his entry style
[13:06] {BillyD} different ways to skin a cat
[13:06] {nemo} yep
[13:07] {nemo} now if volume increases w/price here, could be strong move
[13:07] {magoo} crap NLST
[13:08] {dino} you mean quarter breaks?
[13:08] {nemo} huh? don't know what you call them, but you catch turns regularly
[13:09] {dino} lucky sometimes
[13:09] {nemo} Yeah, it only takes the fingers and toes of a combat battalion to count the number of times you've been lucky
[13:10] {dino} i'm wrong alot too
[13:10] {nemo} Billy, if hig holds support here and breaks .82, whaddya' think?
[13:11] {BillyD} I don't like it long beccause I would prefer the clean breakdown with no resistance
[13:12] {nemo} what about if volume were to increase along with price?
[13:12] {dino} i'll tell you where i'm screwing up lately, not booking scalps because i want more. like hitting my head against the wall
[13:12] {nemo} yeah dino, scalps have been winning predominantly, with just enough runners to pull out your fingernails
[13:12] {dino} current examples ne and crmt
[13:13] {BillyD} key is nemo if volume will continue, needs mkt help and foloow thru
[13:13] {dino} you said it nemo
[13:13] {BillyD} break of low of day sparks a little more panic and people sell
[13:13] {dino} tempted to say f it and turn to total scalp mode for month
[13:13] {nemo} right there on that one BIlly
[13:14] {nemo} I mean I'm right there with you on that one
[13:14] {BillyD} we'll see what happens :)

[13:43] {Threei} call - no
[13:43] {Threei} I do not make calls on momos other than define them as such
[13:43] {Threei} or in one of those rare cases
[13:44] {Threei} when they provide relatively low risk high odds opportunity
[13:48] {strider} AMZN hod
[13:48] {Threei} attack on 8 is imminent
[13:49] {strider} futs
[14:00] {Les} fas b/d?
[14:01] {Les} descending triangle.
[14:01] {Threei} not my kind of setup
[14:01] {Threei} sharp spike, pullback on decereasing volume
[14:01] {Threei} typical bull flag
[14:02] {dino} what to do what to do
[14:04] {Threei} see it now Les?
[14:05] {strider} market closed next friday, or just thursday}?
[14:05] {dino} just thursday
[14:05] {nemo} thurs
[14:05] {Threei} but you can imagine what kind of trading we get on Friday
[14:05] {dino} not allowed to be closed more than 3 days in row
[14:05] {Les} yeh. didn't think of bull flag
[14:06] {strider} something like this afternoon?
[14:06] {Threei} don't look at the last "piece" of chart in isolaion
[14:06] {Threei} view bigger pictuire
[14:06] {Threei} then you'll have better idea of how this piece plays in overall situation
[14:06] {Threei} everything is part of mosaic
[14:07] {dino} out ne +.27, out crmt +.25, out ctrp +.49
[14:08] {BillyD} gj dino
[14:08] {dino} ty, tired of watching them drop bacl to entries
[14:09] {BillyD} sometimes prudence is best
[14:09] {nemo} Dear Prudence
[14:10] {dino} lol
[14:10] {Les} b/o coming in MON?
[14:11] {strider} Patience is good also.
[14:11] {nemo} there's a setup
[14:11] {Les} .95 trigger?
[14:12] {nemo} would be break, yeah, but had a helluva up move
[14:12] {Threei} could be...
[14:12] {Threei} MON has a chance
[14:12] {fernp} fourth week ending in positive. Thank you vad, I was not used to it. ty again
[14:12] {fernp} gotta go. have a nice weekend everybody. see you all on monday
[14:12] {nemo} invalidated under 80
[14:12] {Threei} fern...
[14:12] {Threei} helluva result for someone who hates so many stocks :)
[14:13] {Les} ciao
[14:13] {Threei} glad to hear, have a great weekend
[14:13] {fernp} lol. you too
[14:13] {nemo} spy might be topping out
[14:13] {dino} of course, now ne continues
[14:13] {dino} ctrp too
[14:14] {dino} cya fern
[14:14] {magoo} nice fern
[14:14] {strider} fern:)
[14:15] {nemo} mon invalidated
[14:15] {Threei} yup
[14:16] {Threei} good job by fern, amazing consistency
[14:16] {Les} would it have been appropriate to fade? tried to but was late to party.
[14:16] {Threei} he is a scalper mostly, and last month was a scalper's market
[14:17] {nemo} got delining volume on cat vs increasing price action
[14:18] {strider} short amzn .76, stop hod
[14:20] {ilana} your favorite GLD - .60 breakdown?
[14:20] {nemo} i hate gld :)
[14:21] {Threei} not sure about it here
[14:21] {Threei} pretty random
[14:21] {nemo} I'm not seeing stocks match the pullback in the indexes
[14:24] {patience} it took me 3 hours, 20 minutes to scalp .30 on yamana gold.....not a quickie
06[14:25] * Threei makes a mental note: do not turn to AUY for a quickie
[14:29] {Les} MA wants to go up
[14:30] {BillyD} something about NLST chart at .75 w/ large offer looks appealing
[14:31] {strider} out amzn -.03
[14:36] {Threei} RIMM...
[14:36] {Threei} wstching if consolidates better near 60
[14:36] {nemo} the volume spike?
[14:41] {magoo} only prob is buying the high
[14:41] {Threei} if NASDAQ spikes again from here, .60o will be a valid trigger
[14:41] {Threei} if holding above .90 meanwhile
[14:43] {Threei} watch it here
[14:43] {Threei} if markert reverses from here, .90 becomes trigger for bounce
[14:43] {BillyD} bull flag
[14:44] {Les} wfmi
[14:47] {BillyD} you in vad
[14:47] {strider} in .91
[14:47] {Threei} no
[14:47] {Threei} feels too random and market doesn't show any support
[14:47] {strider} I did it on FAS spike
[14:47] {BillyD} ok
[14:48] {Threei} FAS is not really a lead for RIMM
[14:51] {dino} bd, nemo, see my issues, ne, crmt, ctrp all could have been double. driving me nuts
[14:51] {strider} out .83
[14:51] {BillyD} dino, do you partial?
[14:52] {strider} Vad, when you say to follow the market, what are you looking at? Does an uptick on 1min. count?
[14:52] {Threei} if it's in a chart context, sure
[14:52] {nemo} wow, ctrp
[14:52] {Threei} overall, directional support
[14:52] {strider} ?
[14:52] {Threei} simple things like:
[14:53] {Threei} do you want to buy a breakout while market downticks sharply?
[14:53] {strider} but it
[14:53] {Threei} or if hunting for bounce,
[14:53] {dino} no bd,
[14:53] {strider} it's the 'market downticks" that I'm asking about.
[14:53] {Threei} if your stock stabilized
[14:53] {strider} what is it for the market to downtick.
[14:53] {nemo} what's bd
[14:54] {Threei} hmm?
[14:54] {dino} billyd
[14:54] {Threei} sorry, you lost me
[14:54] {BillyD} that would be me nemo
[14:54] {nemo} got it
[14:54] {nemo} was looking for stock
[14:54] {BillyD} lol
[14:54] {strider} you say "while market downticks". I'm trying to understand what that means.
[14:54] {Les} ctrp about to b/d?
[14:54] {nemo} moving down strider
[14:55] {Threei} dcownticks is dowticks
[14:55] {Threei} prints lower
[14:55] {Threei} bids drop, asks follow
[14:55] {Les} stupid question after such gains...
[14:55] {strider} so you're watcching T&S, rather than chart?
[14:55] {strider} or both.
[14:55] {Threei} market was till dropping while RIMM touched .90 and broke it by a cent or two
[14:55] {nemo} look at indexes les...kinda going with them ato the moment
[14:56] {Threei} chart is one min, sometimes it's not enough for fast play like this
[14:56] {Threei} T&S runs next to chart
[14:56] {strider} right
[14:56] {dino} and t&a is afterhours (couldn't resist)
[14:57] {nemo} Frickin friday funfest
[14:57] {strider} so, if RIMM had touched .90, at the same time as a futs uptick, you would have bought?
[14:57] {strider} or broke .90
[14:58] {Threei} probably
[14:58] {Threei} hard to answer hypotetical
[14:58] {Threei} depends on chart formation at tghe moment,
[14:58] {Threei} depends on how far from .90 it bottomed,
[14:58] {BillyD} it comes down to feel with all the indicators Strider
[14:59] {Threei} how it came back, sharply or slowly climbing
[15:01] {strider} I'm just trying to understand what you're making your decisions on when you say: if holding above .90 meanwhile
[15:01] {strider} [14:43] {&Threei} watch it here
[15:01] {strider} [14:43] {&Threei} if markert reverses from here, .90 becomes trigger for bounce
[15:02] {Threei} those are two different comments
[15:02] {Threei} first was for 60 break if holding above .90
[15:02] {strider} sorry...grabbed too much.
[15:02] {Threei} when it got invalidated, it turned into bounce setup instead of break setup
[15:03] {strider} right
[15:04] {strider} so the question is about: "if market reverses from here." I'm trying to understand how you make that decision.
[15:05] {strider} An uptick doesn't seem like a market reversal.
[15:06] {Threei} not without context
[15:06] {Threei} look at it this way
[15:07] {Threei} market consolidates under the breakout level, then upticks above it
[15:07] {Threei} another case:
[15:07] {Threei} market drops sharply, then makes one uptick
[15:07] {Threei} are those uopticks the same or different in their respective contexts?
[15:08] {strider} They're very different.
[15:08] {Threei} right
[15:08] {Threei} in first case it's meaningful
[15:08] {Threei} in second, it's very likely to be "accidenatl"
[15:08] {Threei} non- event in a sense of defining the direction
[15:08] {Threei} now, third case
[15:09] {Threei} market drops sharply,
[15:09] {Threei} makes a few upticks
[15:09] {Threei} drops again, hold support of previous drop
[15:09] {Threei} and stat upticking again
[15:09] {Threei} is there significance to it?
[15:09] {strider} Yes
[15:09] {strider} holding support
[15:09] {Threei} right, double bottom is likely forming
[15:10] {Threei} so, you have a context now to that comment
[15:10] {strider} Maybe one mistake I've been making is using line charts for futs indicators.
[15:10] {Threei} if I say market reversing
[15:10] {Threei} and one uptick reversal makes not
[15:10] {strider} right
[15:10] {Threei} ... :)
[15:10] {Threei} I prefer bar charts
[15:10] {Threei} cnadles
[15:10] {Threei} candles
[15:11] {Threei} not line
[15:11] {strider} yeah. Easier to see patterns. Used to looking at them.
[15:12] {strider} Is the QQQQ as good as Naz futs for leading indicator? Or not quite as good?
[15:12] {Threei} nah, same thing
[15:12] {strider} And DIA and SPY}
[15:12] {strider} ?
[15:12] {Threei} yes, just for diff markets
[15:13] {strider} OK. THanks. I've been hampering myself by not seeing ordinary chart patterns in the QQQQ--because I was using line chart for it.
[15:13] {BillyD} nlst selling
[15:14] {strider} Was just seeing general directional trends.
[15:17] {BillyD} dino, NE got enough for play if crosses .50
[15:18] {dino} looks so

[15:21] {nemo} wanna' big C&H vad....tck

06[15:21] * nemo slaps dino around a bit with a large monkey
[15:22] {Les} hgsi consolidating?
[15:23] {Threei} I like overall look of TCK
[15:23] {dino} lol
[15:23] {Threei} not HGSI
[15:24] {BillyD} AIG didn't participate with the mkt spike , may be short off 35
[15:24] {dino} crmt trying to break up
[15:24] {dino} dish has been odd, drops wed 2+ and sits in 35 cent range for two days
[15:25] {dino} nuva hl l .00
[15:27] {nemo} alota order at 34
[15:30] {Les} tck trigger?
[15:31] {Threei} you believe in breakout and run here?
[15:31] {dino} ok 3i 60 pts up for me or 30 down for you
[15:31] {Threei} then this is your trigger, right here
[15:32] {nemo} I think the ppt wants it positive
[15:32] {Threei} sigh
[15:34] {strider} AIG continues to look weak, Billy
[15:35] {Les} someone likes MA
[15:35] {dino} crmt hl l .00

[15:37] {dino} bk=black knight i guess
[15:37] {BillyD} I wanted it to stay under .10 Strider, my preference though
[15:38] {dino} nuva to .24
[15:39] {dino} out +.24
[15:40] {dino} ctrp hl l .00 trig
[15:42] {dino} wall of china at .00

[15:43] {nemo} wall of china, chinese travel company...sheesh
[15:43] {dino} giddyup
[15:43] {dino} lol didn't think of that
[15:43] {Threei} TCK if you went for it feel free to take profit here
[15:43] {Threei} likely to pullback now
[15:44] {dino} these .25 mutliple triggers are not what they used to be
[15:45] {nemo} you mean break of .25 .50 .75, etc?
[15:46] {dino} and .00 yes, they used to be pretty reliable
[15:47] {dino} now they are about as useful as humpty dumpty
[15:48] {nemo} yeah, easy targets for algo programs
[15:48] {dino} stopped -.10
[15:48] {Threei} TCK quite obeying
[15:49] {Threei} or obedient
[15:49] {Threei} or whatever
[15:49] {dino} you short it?
[15:49] {Les} thought of fading, but noted you said "Likely" to pull back, not surely. don't know when pullbacks can be faded...
[15:50] {dino} rinsed again
[15:50] {Threei} no dino, alerted earlier about closing long around .74
[15:50] {dino} yes, saw that
[15:52] {dino} ugh ctrp
[15:52] {BillyD} CTRP too spikey for tight stops
[15:52] {dino} decides to go against market all sudden
[15:52] {strider} don't care what vad says, there's a 'they' out there doing that stuff, dino.
[15:52] {BillyD} yeah and not with it earlier
[15:53] {Threei} and even if you are paranoid, it doesn't mean they are not watching you
[15:53] {strider} damnm right.
