Due to excessive fooling around, even though fun, group decided not to publish today's log. Suffice to say, two momo movers SEED and ICXT was all we found worthy to trade today. Charts are self-explanatory.

[12:52] {Threei} some consoidation,
[12:52] {Threei} then break of .50
[12:52] {Threei} for the move toward 82
[12:55] {Threei} see how it's forming?
[12:55] {Threei} double bottom scenario
[12:56] {Threei} only I don't want to enter on confirmation, it's way too high
[12:56] {Threei} so I want interim setup,
[12:56] {Threei} consolidation under .50
[12:56] {Threei} giveing me better trigger
[12:56] {Threei} -e

[13:04] {Threei} Market Internals update at 12:00pmET
[13:04] {Threei} - NYSE volume 230M shares, about 50% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.1:1.
[13:04] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 495M shares, about 47% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.1:1.
[13:04] {Threei} volume is about the same as yesterday
[13:04] {Threei} which is to say non-existent
[13:04] {nemo} and the stats on A/D was exactly the opposite
[13:04] {Threei} vs yesterday?
[13:04] {nemo} yes...advancers to decliners were 1.1/1
[13:05] {Threei} so just measningless oscillations
[13:05] {Threei} or convulsions
[13:05] {nemo} by the way, sorry, was going to call amazon short at .80 but the stop was a bit big...notice the declinging highs from 11:10
[13:06] {Threei} speaking of FCX...
[13:06] {Threei} maybe starts looking better for short
[13:06] {nemo} goes to .55
[13:13] {Threei} how about this for random
[13:13] {nemo} well, fcx probably tests the close now
[13:13] {Threei} ruined long setup, then ruined short
[13:13] {nemo} funny, those volume increases into .40 were a long setup to me

[13:26] {Threei} no cell phone signal
[13:27] {Threei} I'd say Darwin in action
[13:27] {Threei} GPS combined with lack of common sense - that can be a deadly combination
[13:27] {strider} IT's very easy to get lost in such places.
[13:28] {Threei} would anyone with ounce of common sense turn to service road after heavy snowfaLL?
[13:29] {Threei} more than that,
[13:29] {Threei} you see two feet of snow ahwead of you,
[13:29] {Threei} no sign of road visible,
[13:29] {Threei} do you just continue driving staright ahead?

[14:48] {Threei} I'd prefer it to stay under .60,
[14:49] {Threei} so we could keep it as a stop
[14:49] {Les} or is it a potential double bottom?
[14:49] {Threei} it is
[14:53] {nemo} amzn dropping

[15:31] {Threei} that temptation will keep you alive and sane for years to come
[15:31] {magoo} CBAK
[15:31] {fernp} thank you. I needed that . I felt bad with myself :-)

[15:34] {magoo} CBAK bananas
[15:35] {Threei} no kidding
[15:35] {fernp} [18:09] {fernp} CBAK 3 today?
[15:36] {Les} would CBAK be the sort of stock you'd consider holding overnight vad?
[15:36] {Les} likelihood of gapping up in morning?
[15:36] {Threei} if it drops to some sane price before close, sure
[15:37] {Threei} it's rumor-based movwe
[15:37] {Les} whats the rumour?
[15:37] {Threei} it gets dissected overnight, masses come to conclusion rumor is not all that likely to turn into reality
[15:37] {Threei} gap is shot
[15:38] {Threei} [12:10] {Alert} Threei CBAK Strength attributed to rumor CBAK battery product could be used in a Google smart phone model due out in 2010
[15:38] {Les} ok. so you tend to hold stocks that have hard news releases as opposed to rumours?
[15:39] {Les} i.e, rumours get destroyed more readily overnight?
[15:39] {Threei} either real news, or sector strength, or technical move with tripping some very cvommon alerts, like new 52 weeks high
[15:39] {Threei} I don't know more readily or not, but it's a real possibility
[15:39] {Threei} and that's not a risk I would be willing to take
[15:39] {Les} understand
[15:40] {Threei} imagine CBAK management coming out and saying no, we aree not in Googlwe phone
[15:40] {Threei} which they can do easily to avoid troubles with SEC
[15:40] {nemo} after they sell there stock, of course
[15:40] {Threei} stock moved from under 2.5 today
[15:41] {Threei} if that what hapens, it will open where?

[10:01] {fernp} WFC breakdown, Vad?
[10:03] {strider} NLST
[10:03] {Threei} hmmm
[10:03] {Threei} not sure fern
[10:06] {Threei} mags
[10:06] {Threei} AIG
[10:06] {Threei} stop under 24
[10:06] {Threei} entry as close to it as you can get
[10:06] {Les} l HIG .03
[10:07] {Threei} HIG acts as salmon
[10:07] {Threei} a bit high entry Les
[10:07] {strider} long HIG from .98
[10:07] {Les} so take scalp only?
[10:08] {strider} L NLST from .79
[10:08] {Threei} it's capable of more than that...
[10:08] {Threei} just not fond of this kind of entries
[10:10] {dino} par
[10:11] {nemo} rimm vad
[10:12] {Threei} not sure about play on it
[10:12] {Threei} feels long to me
[10:12] {Threei} but no clear setup
[10:14] {Les} any news that is annoying market?
[10:14] {fernp} AEO, Vad? I don't know how this one trades, valid breakout?
[10:14] {Threei} no news
[10:14] {fernp} is holding in highs while SPY is dropping
[10:15] {Threei} should be good for a scalp fern
[10:15] {fernp} ty
[10:15] {dino} aixg capit?
[10:16] {Threei} doesn't look ready for bounce to me, dino
[10:16] {Threei} more downside most likely
[10:17] {strider} stop NLST -.10
[10:17] {fernp} WFC still on lows
[10:18] {dino} feeling .35ish
[10:24] {Threei} HIG lost support
[10:24] {strider} stop HIG
[10:26] {fernp} i took my 1:1 on HIG w/my first entry, and stopped with the second one
[10:26] {Threei} half pon 1:1 and stopped second half, so the same washout
[10:27] {fernp} shorted WFC .88
[10:27] {fernp} my 1:1 is almost here..
[10:29] {ese} anyone else waiting or cgen to bottom out
[10:31] {dino} aixg hl l .05, stop lod
[10:35] {fernp} AEO is breaking now... not sure what to do, SPY is falling
[10:37] {dino} alny wakey
[10:37] {strider} hmmm..
[10:38] {fernp} FAZ breakout?
[10:38] {Threei} only if pulls back first
[10:39] {Threei} and holding this .87 - .90 area
[10:41] {Threei} GLD, want long with target around .35, and don't want to buy break
[10:41] {Threei} so, my way to trade it here would be:
[10:41] {Threei} ignore .20 break,
[10:41] {Threei} but if it pulls back into .10 area, I anm interested
[10:42] {Threei} with stop/invaliadting level 108
[10:43] {Threei} come on GLD, show your treacherous charatcter: drop shareply shaking out .20 break buyers, and let us in on that shakeout
[10:44] {Les} 50 and 200 ma converging at .25
[10:44] {Threei} typing gods will never forgive me for what I do to English...
[10:46] {Les} did you buy Vad?
[10:47] {Threei} no, was waiting couple cents lower
[10:48] {Threei} I want a brief dive under .10, holding above 108 and recross of .10 as entry signsl
[10:49] {Threei} even if it doesn't let us in, I am pretty staisfied with read itself
[10:49] {Threei} getting closer to decoding the ways GLD eliminates too straightforward traders
[10:52] {fernp} AEO 1:1 but i didn't take the trade. too much thinking. grrrr
[10:53] {Threei} Long Setup: AIG .10 break
[10:53] {Threei} stop under 32
[10:53] {ese} l cgen .41
[10:56] {ese} you refering to me vad
[10:56] {Threei} I am?
[10:56] {ese} .30
[10:58] {strider} out 1/2 AIG
[10:58] {Threei} AIG 1:1
[10:58] {Les} out ty
[10:58] {Threei} strider, stop to under .10 for the balance
[10:58] {magoo} AIG seems or feekls like alot more..not in tho
[10:58] {strider} thx
[10:59] {strider} out -.01
[10:59] {Threei} could be mags... but this is AIG... I better let ther balance to get shaken out than get stuck
[10:59] {magoo} agree..its been a disappointer orf late
[10:59] {strider} like that.
[10:59] {Threei} downdraft on it can be devastating
[11:00] {Threei} and don't forget, we are still in holiday mode
[11:00] {fernp} HIG again breaking 24
[11:00] {ese} l cgen avg .39
[11:00] {Threei} short week and all that crap
[11:01] {Les} GLD still in play Vad?
[11:01] {Threei} can't tewll, it kind of lost its rythm
[11:01] {nemo} may be DT on Rimm
[11:01] {dino} jst
[11:01] {Threei} first drop looked good, second is questionable
[11:02] {Threei} hmmm
[11:02] {ese} cgen stop .33
[11:03] {Threei} why not C&H on RIMM nemo?
[11:03] {Threei} .45 break
[11:03] {Threei} if holdong .30 -.45
[11:03] {Threei} .30 - .35
[11:03] {nemo} could be one of those switchitters
[11:04] {Threei} yeah
[11:04] {nemo} your handle is small too
[11:04] {fernp} gonna try again HIG
[11:05] {Threei} big offer at .45
[11:05] {Threei} reinforces setup
[11:05] {nemo} oy vay
[11:05] {ese} out cgen .49 +.10
[11:05] {Threei} wtg
[11:06] {ese} worked well...kept partially out 4k avgeraged it out at .49
[11:07] {ese} actually .487623 to be exact
[11:07] {Threei} invalidated RIMM
[11:07] {nemo} the long anyway
[11:07] {Threei} right
[11:08] {Threei} too bad, that break would have been a beauty
[11:10] {nemo} RIMM again
[11:10] {fernp} DBA, Vad?
[11:10] {Threei} need pullback for re-validation
[11:10] {Threei} RIUMM

[11:13] {Les} .80 break looking good?
[11:14] {fernp} that was for DBA, mags
[11:14] {magoo} RUM
[11:14] {Threei} probably Les
[11:18] {magoo} gld was invalid?
[11:19] {Threei} I wasn't delighted
[11:19] {magoo} ya ya
[11:19] {Threei} it more or less worked in the end but preety much crapshoot, really
[11:19] {magoo} in my best leonardo dicapr voice from movie blood diamond

[11:20] {fernp} NRG breakdown, Vad?
[11:21] {Les} outta here. night all.
[11:22] {fernp} bye Les
[11:22] {Threei} take care Les
[11:23] {Threei} so slow, fern...
[11:23] {Threei} things stalled
[11:24] {Threei} let's look at some postcard-type photos in fresh upload at
[11:24] {fernp} yeah, shorted .39 i'll take a scalp (if I can) :-)
[11:27] {fernp} your city seems very european
[11:27] {fernp} beatiful heavens in all pics
[11:27] {Threei} yeah, prides itself ion being more British than Britain
[11:29] {fernp} such buildings are the typical you can find over here
[11:34] {nemo} rimm broke .45 another huge orer at .50
[11:34] {Threei} break on such vertical spike... nah
[11:35] {nemo} chewed right through
[11:38] {fernp} 1:1 NRG +.05
[11:42] {nemo} rimm break .60 stop under .50 look at order at .60
[11:51] {fernp} NVDA breakdown, Vad?
[11:51] {Threei} worth a try
[11:52] {fernp} ty
[11:52] {Threei} just a scalp
[11:52] {Threei} unless market starts dropping like tomorrow never comes
[11:52] {fernp} ok. i'll scalp it :-)
[11:53] {strider} aggressive entry make sense here, NVDA?
[11:53] {Threei} yeah, and if tomorrow never comes - what good those excessive profits are for you anyway
[11:53] {Threei} no strider
[11:53] {Threei} RIMM looks at that .60 with childish curiosity
[11:54] {fernp} daily seems ready for a pullback
[11:54] {nemo} on what fern?
[11:54] {fernp} NVDA
[11:54] {fernp} QGEN strong
[11:57] {Threei} NVDA shapes up nicely
[11:57] {strider} break of .74?
[11:57] {Threei} yes
[11:58] {nemo} cat vad, maybe short, I've got .45 as important but pivot is .38
[12:01] {Threei} .45 break I'd do
[12:02] {strider} stop?
[12:02] {Threei} .50 or .55, both are valid
[12:02] {nemo} .50 probably
[12:02] {strider} k
[12:09] {nemo} cat the frickin' fandancer
[12:10] {strider} in .44
[12:10] {strider} there's the big bid on NVDA
[12:11] {strider} .77
[12:15] {Threei} RIMM is trying to reinvalidate again
[12:17] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM .60 break
[12:18] {Threei} stop under .50 for scalpers
[12:18] {Threei} .45 for day traders
[12:18] {Threei} 1:1
[12:19] {Threei} unstoppable RIMM
[12:19] {Threei} 'can you hold the moonbeam in your hand"...
[12:19] {Threei} never mind... wife was watching Sounds of Music yesterday when I carelessly wandered in the room
[12:19] {nemo} DF
[12:19] {Threei} it's quite a trauma for my impressionable soul
[12:20] {nemo} anyway,,,,I'm off to try and kill something...this day has been a CF!
[12:20] {dino} gl
[12:20] {nemo} ty
[12:20] {Threei} kill my portion too wioll ya
[12:21] {magoo} what CF?
[12:21] {Threei} or df
[12:22] {Threei} but, you know... when it comes to nemo I gave up on decoding
[12:22] {Threei} not only because it's challenging
[12:22] {Threei} but mostly because in most cases I don't want to know the answer
[12:24] {strider} CAT
[12:25] {Threei} makes huge prgress, doesn't it
[12:26] {strider} not much spring in its step.
[12:26] {strider} which is a good thing.
[12:26] {Threei} well, it's cat... it's prowling
[12:28] {strider} Is RIMM a long here?
[12:28] {strider} was
[12:29] {Threei} why here
[12:29] {Threei} it was long at .60
[12:29] {strider} there was some consolidation at .72, 2nd test of high.
[12:30] {Threei} if you wanted it for bigger trade, you'd simply enter it with stop .45, and have 1:2
[12:31] {strider} well, it jumped fast from .60....coudn't get in.
[12:31] {Threei} I see
[12:31] {Threei} it was a "hover" type of entry
[12:31] {strider} I was hovering .)
[12:31] {Threei} lol
[12:32] {Threei} unhovered too late then :)
[12:32] {Threei} usually, when hovering,
[12:32] {Threei} you don't wait for actual break
[12:32] {Threei} you want to gran last shares of big order
[12:32] {Threei} so you lwet go when it scrolls fast
[12:35] {strider} CAT looking like a dbl bottom
[12:37] {ese} dino.....anything on your radar
[12:39] {dino} just took fsys l
[12:39] {dino} .04 ave

[12:44] {strider} what's your stop, CAT, vad?
[12:44] {Threei} at this point just above .50
[12:44] {Threei} no two options anymore
[12:44] {ese} hmmmmmmm that sounds like a plan dino....spike to 25
[12:45] {Threei} as they used to say in USSR, we have pluralism of opinions, and there is no another way about it
[12:45] {strider} haha
[12:46] {dino} lol es waiting at .22

[13:35] {Threei} - NYSE volume 240M shares, about 48% below its three-month average; advancers and decliners are about even.
[13:35] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 520M shares, about 45% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.1:1.
[13:35] {Threei} lol
[13:39] {dino} wow
[13:46] {fernp} AMGN no go
[14:03] {Threei} wow
[14:03] {Threei} fern
[14:03] {Threei} your SEED works
[14:03] {fernp} yes
[14:05] {fernp} but i only took +.05 on it (my initial risk)
[14:05] {Threei} Fed proposes amendments to Reserve Requirements for Deposit institutions; allows establishment of term deposit facility; with no implications on monetary policy decisions in short term
[14:05] {Threei} - term deposit maturities will not exceed 1 year's time; with most likely maturity at 1-6 months
[14:05] {Threei} - Federal Reserve Banks would offer interest-bearing term deposits to eligible institutions through an auction mechanism. Term deposits would be one of several tools that the Federal Reserve could employ to drain reserves
[14:06] {fernp} i also shorted INTC at .30 (my 1:1 is here)
[14:06] {Threei} market really disliked this
[14:06] {Threei} Fed worked for you
[14:06] {Threei} (for once)
[14:06] {fernp} lol
[14:07] {Threei} volume update, don't look now:
[14:07] {Threei} Market Internals update at 2:00pmET
[14:07] {Threei} - NYSE volume 340M shares, about 50% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.1:1.
[14:07] {Threei} - NASDAQ volume 760M shares, about 45% below its three-month average; decliners lead advancers by 1.2:1.
[14:07] {Threei} 50%
[14:07] {Threei} I don't think I've seen this, ever
[14:09] {fernp} hey!!! thaks FED, +.08 INTC
[14:11] {Threei} lol
[14:12] {dino} gj
[14:17] {fernp} AEO ignores market. still on highs. and... if I hold some shares overnight? Am I crazy?
[14:17] {Threei} yes
[14:17] {Threei} but the real question is,
[14:17] {Threei} will it stop you from doing that?
[14:18] {fernp} good question
[14:21] {Threei} White House: President Obama to speak later today with regards to the terrorist attack attempted on Christmas day
[14:21] {Threei} - separately, in the last few minutes an Al-Qaeda faction claimed responsibility for the attempted attack on a US airliner, calling it a retaliation for US attacks in Yemen.
[14:21] {Threei} - reminder: over the weekend, the Nigeria man who attempted to set off an explosive device in a Northwest airliner was reported to have ties to Al-Qaeda.
[14:28] {fernp} looking at airlines, CAL and DAL could be fine for a scalp if break lod
[15:00] {fernp} .
[15:01] {Threei} Prez on TV
[15:11] {magoo} :(
[15:12] {Threei} ?
[15:14] {Threei} CGEN woke up
[15:15] {Threei} let's see if we get a pullback under .30
[15:16] {Threei} CGEN Update: Price target raised to $12 at Cantor Fitzgerald, maintains Buy rating
[15:16] {Threei} wow
[15:16] {Threei} let's keep it as a gap candidate
[15:17] {Threei} this is something very likely to attract attention overnight
[15:18] {Threei} Barton Biggs: USD could rise 10%; feels USD is undervalued vs the Euro (related EUR/USD )
[15:28] {Threei} a bit more on CGEN so you could make up your mind:
[15:28] {Threei} Price target raised 60% to $12 from $5 at Cantor Fitzgerald, maintains Buy rating
[15:28] {Threei} - Firm believes Roche's acquisition of two early stage assets, Alnylam's European RNAi development operations for $300M plus the RNAi delivery company, Mirus, for $125M for a total of $425M provide a good comparitor for Compugen due to the early development stage and long-term value its technology is expected to have for pharmas and diagnostic companies.
[15:30] {strider} long from 5.40 for overnight
[15:31] {fernp} I was long from .46 and sold .61
[15:32] {Threei} don't want to suggest it for right now strider, but something to consider in the future in this kind of situastion:
[15:32] {Threei} umbrella trade,
[15:32] {Threei} get double lot,
[15:32] {Threei} scalp one
[15:32] {Threei} hold another
[15:32] {strider} good idea.
[15:33] {Threei} review umbreall concept in scalping video course
[15:33] {Threei} it's exactly the situation to apply it
[15:33] {strider} In this case, I bought in another acct.
[15:34] {strider} NOt ready to hold overnight in daytrading acct.
[15:35] {fernp} me too, I use another account for overnight. holding AEO. let's see if opens with gap
[15:43] {Threei} EUR/USD CFTC: speculators have gone long the USD for the first time since May (update)
[15:44] {Threei} CFTC claims to know what side "speculators" take?
[15:44] {Threei} and just who is on another side?
[15:44] {Threei} not other speculators?
[15:44] {magoo} anti-speculators
[15:44] {Threei} sigh
[15:44] {Threei} idiocy reigns
[15:48] {dino} lol
[15:50] {Threei} I played CGEN half right
[15:50] {Threei} took double lot, that was fine,
[15:51] {Threei} sold one at .57, fine,
[15:51] {strider} not lookong too strong right now.
[15:51] {Threei} but then should have sold half lot more over .60, to replace it on pullback
[15:52] {strider} you think it's still a valid overnight?
[15:52] {Threei} it's those who don't want overnight exiting, strider
[15:52] {Threei} what changed?
[15:52] {strider} didn't run up to the high.
[15:53] {Threei} look at it from the p;oint of view of reason foer the gap
[15:53] {Threei} for those who see it after coming back home
[15:53] {strider} It's been gapping for 3 days.
[15:54] {Threei} 52 week high, news, upgrade by solid house with insane target
[15:54] {Threei} today's nwews come on the heel of the one a few days ago
[15:54] {Threei} altogether creates this "things are happening for this company" feeling for our beloved overnight buyers
[15:55] {Threei} normally this is what I want to see to buy for a gap
[15:55] {strider} ok
[15:55] {Threei} hey, I am not convincing you
[15:55] {Threei} overnight is totally discretionary
[15:55] {strider} I understand:)
[15:55] {Threei} just expressing my own approacvh
[15:56] {Threei} but risk tolerance is different
[15:56] {Threei} so....
[15:58] {fernp} AEO ending on highs holding 500 for tomorrow
[15:59] {Threei} okay guys, thank you all
[15:59] {Threei} have a good evening, see you tomorrow
[16:00] {lasertrev} see ya Vad
[16:00] {fernp} AEO nice daily too, maybe screeners will spit AEO like breakout play. Let's see
