[09:35] {Threei} half ot
[09:35] {Threei} strop under .30
[09:36] {Threei} no worky
[09:36] {fernp} out
[09:36] {BillyD} it's deceiving Vad
[09:36] {Threei} still pullback stock, not a breakout
[09:36] {Threei} but really looked like this time was going to work
[09:37] {BillyD} agree
[09:37] {strider} seed out -.29
[09:38] {strider} AIG out +.67
[09:38] {ese} L rimm .96

[09:41] {ese} stopped rimm .84 -.12
[09:42] {ese} don't know how mags does it with that stock
[09:42] {Threei} NUVA... grrr
[09:43] {Threei} missed short alert earlier, just watching it dropping
[09:43] {nemo} frig...I had the support line break on that
[09:43] {BillyD} CAT short possibly
[09:44] {fernp} WFC still valid, no?
[09:44] {Threei} if bounces off 28 and stays under .10 this time, yes
[09:44] {fernp} ok
[09:44] {Threei} right away, not sure
[09:44] {Threei} can turn a trap easily
[09:46] {Threei} valid now
[09:46] {Threei} 28 break
[09:48] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM59 break if holding above .90
[09:48] {Threei} Long Setup: RIMM 59 break if holding above .90

[09:53] {Moose} guess we were too hasty on exit
[09:54] {strider} I sure was.
[09:54] {ese} no....that thing reverses in a heart beat
[09:54] {strider} on RIMM
[09:55] {Threei} watching HIG for pullback with possible entry around .60
[09:56] {Threei} will try to alert in time, keep finger on the trigger if it drops close to .60
[09:57] {Threei} break of .75 is a valid trade if market spikes... just not what worked on HIG lately
[09:57] {strider} numbers may affect it.....2 minutes.
[09:58] {Threei} yeah
[09:58] {Threei} let's wait them out

[10:02] {nemo} how's the shoulder
[10:02] {Threei} useless
[10:02] {strider} out HIG +.10
[10:02] {Threei} if I bought it... would be different matter

06[10:03] * nemo slaps strider around a bit with a large roll of cash
[10:03] {strider} in at .63 as numbers were being read.

[10:15] {Threei} really looks like short to me
[10:16] {Threei} but these market jumps are ruining norla setups
[10:16] {nemo} it's a conspiracy

[10:33] {Moose} AIG
[10:33] {nemo} oh
[10:34] {Moose} mentioned that AIG had payed back money prior to spin off or something
[10:34] {nemo} the energy trading part?
[10:34] {Moose} no clue
[10:34] {Moose} CNBC is mostly noise to me
[10:35] {Moose} and annoying
[10:35] {nemo} now fitb is trading by appointment
[10:37] {Threei} it usually is
[10:37] {Threei} it's not AIG by any means
[10:37] {nemo} where's ese on this one?
[10:39] {Threei} well, if magoo were here he would proclaim AIG a momo and assign a price of, let's say 33
[10:40] {ese} ya know what....what the H am i thinking today....out hig .71 +.02
[10:41] {ese} i have .11 in hig and i let it ride....i have to be out of my friggin mind
[10:41] {ese} watching it go up and dn
[10:42] {Moose} another AIG scalp +.13
[10:42] {ese} done for the day all until i get my act together

[10:43] {nemo} out fitb vad?
[10:43] {Threei} if loses .10
[10:45] {Moose} beginning to think waiting on AIG pullback is fruitless
[10:45] {fernp} was thinking the same...
[10:51] {Threei} Short Setup: GLD 117 break
[10:51] {Threei} half lot
[10:51] {Threei} if stays under .10
[10:51] {Threei} actually... stop is small enough for full lot
[10:51] {Threei} sme slippage is possible though
[10:51] {Threei} so 3/4 lot
[10:52] {Threei} aggressive entry maybe better idea
[10:53] {strider} with aggressive entry is stop still at .10?
[10:53] {Threei} a few cents above
[10:55] {ese} more like it in and out rimm .89 to .99

[10:56] {nemo} yeah, but great setup
[10:56] {ilana} it's time to say it, Vad

[10:57] {ilana} "I hate GLD"
[10:57] {Threei} oh
[10:57] {Threei} okay... I do
[10:57] {Threei} but I have hard time finding what I like today, lol
[10:58] {nemo} or what likes you

[10:58] {nemo} sorry
[10:58] {Threei} lol
[10:58] {nemo} well, not really
[10:58] {Threei} very... answer is, not much at best
[10:58] {nemo} doesn't say much for me then :)
[10:59] {Threei} AIG picks up pace again
[11:00] {Threei} shouldn't break this time...
[11:01] {Threei} let's see if we get double top with readable short trigger
[11:01] {Threei} on AIG
[11:01] {nemo} might it take fitb with it?
[11:02] {Threei} I don't think they are connected much
[11:03] {Threei} sigh
[11:03] {Threei} double top and drop is there, trigger is not
[11:05] {BillyD} keep eye on ASIA

[11:10] {nemo} hehehehe
[11:11] {Threei} sigh... how did I get myself in this company, lol
[11:11] {Threei} OK, AIG
[11:11] {Threei} if moves somewhere in .60 area, will become a short on bounce
[11:12] {Threei} stop would have to be above .80
[11:12] {nemo} fitb trying for a quasimodo
[11:14] {Threei} {FITB} you... you...
[11:15] {Threei} youy know what
[11:15] {Threei} AIG changed
[11:15] {Threei} .50 break is long trigger
