[08:45] {nemo} Not me...I like to kick a man when he's down
[08:45] {BillyD} rofl
[08:45] {Threei} easy... 1:1 is easier reachable when it's a smaller move in absolute terms, and with decent amount of shares it's safer and more consistent way to trade
[08:48] {Moose} gm all
[08:48] {Threei} Moose :)
[08:48] {Moose} :D
[08:49] {Les} yes, trading 50 shares and not even taking 1:1 was pretty lame in hindsight

[10:40] {dino} meli
[10:40] {Threei} I like it Billy
[10:40] {BillyD} actually, want some consolidation under .50
[10:41] {Les} CAT approaching bottom of range again
[10:41] {BillyD} the .53 spikes make me hesitate
[10:41] {Threei} watch those huge bids
[10:41] {Threei} .41 and .39
[10:41] {BillyD} ok
[10:42] {strider} sstopped balance AIG .72
[10:43] {Threei} very nice management of the play
[10:45] {strider} held a little back hoping for 31, but didn't get there.
[10:45] {dino} gj
[10:45] {Les} CAT closer to b/d vad. seems to be consolidating?
[10:45] {strider} thx
[10:46] {Threei} I am puzzled about it Les
[10:46] {Threei} chart is right
[10:46] {Threei} but none of these setups worked today
[10:46] {Les} It's gotta be "them"
[10:47] {Threei} breakdown are either get invalidated (9 out of 10) ot stopped out (remaining 1)
[10:48] {Threei} it feels like end of week action encouraged bears too much,
[10:48] {nemo} yeah, I almost got caught in a cat short earlier
[10:48] {fernp} invalidated AKAM Billy
[10:48] {Threei} so market has to shake up that confidence once again
[10:48] {BillyD} yes
[10:48] {Les} how rude
[10:51] {Threei} on the other hand, market loses morning enthusiasm
[10:51] {nemo} but...does that turn to market coma, or fear
[10:51] {Threei} good question
[10:52] {Threei} I wish I had worthy answer
[10:52] {nemo} me too...may be nap time
[10:52] {Threei} let's put it this way:
[10:52] {Threei} if market starts dropping sharply, CAT is one of the best candidates,
06[10:52] * nemo crawls in cave, closes door, pulls blanket over head, grabs teddy
[10:53] {Threei} and if it leaves us a window of opportunity for entry, great
[10:53] {nemo} should retest the .50 area if it rops
[10:53] {Les} I was thinking here at .80 vad
[10:53] {Threei} here comes trigger
[10:54] {strider} short at .71?
[10:54] {Threei} why .71? .75 break was a trigger
[10:54] {fernp} shorted at .74
[10:54] {fernp} stop is above .90?
[10:55] {Threei} right
[10:55] {fernp} thanks
[10:55] {strider} because .72 was lod....hadn't been following all the conversation.
[10:55] {Threei} .75 was lod
[10:55] {strider} in at. 74
[10:55] {Threei} .72 is new one formed after .75 gave up
[10:56] {Threei} OK market, let's drop
[10:56] {Les} ok, didn't realise that was a call. short at .74
[10:56] {nemo} you've got recent swing lows from Friday of .60 and .48
[10:56] {Threei} les, how do you tell a call from nor a call
[10:56] {Threei} we see chart, we discuss it
[10:56] {Les} big green/red square
[10:56] {Threei} shrug
[10:56] {Les} thats ok
[10:57] {Les} will adopt vads ways given time
[10:57] {Threei} that's for easy visual... not a gospel
[10:57] {strider} then he'll just change them.
[10:57] {Threei} don't take it as "if no bright color loud scream alert, no play"
[10:58] {Threei} lol strider
[10:58] {dino} lol
[10:59] {dino} melo hl l .01, stop .73

[11:06] {Les} rofl
[11:07] {Threei} and I firmly pklanned on not murdering anyone today

[11:11] {Threei} some selling into first of them went through, and they did take it
[11:11] {BillyD} hehe
[11:11] {magoo} FCX going over 80 imo
[11:13] {Threei} market slowed down considerably
[11:13] {Threei} latest catch:
[11:13] {Threei}

[11:22] {Threei} this mountain is about 100 km from us
[11:23] {Threei} amazing for tele lens can do ej
[11:23] {ese} the physics guy at my school explained it to me.... a little warmth on the ocean creates a convex type camera lens with the moisture rising......magnifies the other side quite significantly
[11:23] {nemo} that's same reason moon looks so big when it's low in the sky: looking through more atmosphere than when it's high in the sky
[11:23] {strider} cmon CAT.

[11:24] {strider} sorry, bid.:)
[11:25] {Threei} watch your terminology... that's exactly why some hit sell instead of buy when cover (Threei is squinting at fern)
[11:26] {fernp} if we play AKAM short, stop should be above .60, all other levels seem a bit feeble
[11:26] {strider} I keep a little text box over each L2, so I can type my position in. Helps keep me straight.
[11:27] {strider} lightening up at .56
[11:27] {strider} looks like it might be a bottom.

[11:49] {strider} Target $20.
[11:49] {strider} Maybe my chart's upside down.

[11:52] {strider} Financial statements out today for FGXI
[11:52] {Threei} well... except sense of humor
[11:52] {strider} no. wrong.
[11:52] {dino} could be strike pay on it

[11:55] {strider} you know what vad said when he walked into a bar?
[11:56] {magoo} wheres magoo?
[11:56] {strider} exactly.
[11:56] {strider} stole my thunder.
[11:57] {Threei} hmmm... my usual icebreaker in the bar is "shot of cogjnac and salted cucumber please"...
[11:57] {BillyD} you get a funny look?
[11:57] {Threei} if I go all fancy, it's champaign and pickled cucumber
[11:58] {Threei} no, I get a cgnjack and cucumber
[11:58] {BillyD} I see your mood
[11:59] {Threei} then magoo comes with beer and Alaska king crab legs, and ruins harmony
[12:01] {Threei} he would probably be better convive if not for the habit of shooting in the window every time deer walks by
[12:01] {Threei} I go deaf at the end iof the day... and broke paying for all the broken glass
[12:02] {strider} I would have thought magoo hunts the same way he trades: just jump on their back and ride them till they drop dead.
[12:03] {nemo} are you talking about hunting or his affinity for sheep?
[12:03] {strider} I ain't going there.
[12:03] {Threei} ouch

[12:38] {Threei} Fed's Bernanke: There is some way to go before we can be sure the US economic recovery is self sustaining
[12:38] {Threei} - Sees modest growth in 2010, enough to lower unemployment rate.
[12:38] {Threei} - Household spending is unlikely to grow rapidly
[12:38] {Threei} - US economy still facing "significant headwinds," headwinds for growth in clude tight credit and the weak job market.
[12:38] {Threei} - Inflation may decrease further from current level. Long-term inflation appears stable.
[12:38] {Threei} - Raising interest rates on reserves held at the Fed will be an important tool for tightening policy.
[12:38] {Threei} - Fed funds rate can rise even with a large Fed balance sheet
[12:38] {Threei} - Regional Fed structure gave policymakers perspective on main street during crisis.
[12:39] {Threei} looks like market wanted to hear anything but "we start tightening rates now"
[12:39] {Threei} I doubt however this will ignite sustainable rally

[14:08] {Threei} depends on trading range
[14:08] {Les} gimme a trade coin dexter
[14:08] {nemo} so, do the Qs bounce here, or dive darth
[14:09] {Les} I don't look at q's very often. should I be keeping eye on SPY or QQQQ during trading?
[14:09] {nemo} both
[14:12] {Threei} QQQQ for nasdaq stocks, spy or DJI for Dow stocks
[14:12] {nemo} fas or iyf for financials
[14:12] {Les} ok. I don't switch market charts to track the appropriate stock
[14:12] {Les} my bad
[14:12] {Threei} OK, last one, I promise... but Billy, you'll like it
[14:12] {Threei}
[14:13] {ilana} reminds of Leonardo Cohen style a bit
[14:14] {fernp} I prefer these guys
[14:17] {Threei} BBY tries to reestablish

[14:19] {Threei} :)
[14:19] {Les} just saw importance of histogram on my one click trading tool nemo
[14:19] {Les} looking to short fcx at top of range
[14:19] {Les} hit .12, big histogram bar, and promptly reversed.
[14:19] {Les} will use that more often for these tighter ranges
[14:21] {fernp} if breaks BBY, your stop is under 44 or 43.95? bounced off .95 a couple of times
[14:21] {Threei} really want it to hold 44 firmly finally
[14:21] {Threei} se we could use it
[14:24] {fernp} QQQQ looks short here .... QID long?
[14:26] {Threei} don't want to chase...
[14:26] {Threei} let's see if we get snapback
[14:32] {BillyD} hard to get in this move
[14:33] {BillyD} CAT b/dn if continuation
[14:34] {Threei} here is QID pullback, let's see if it gives us something close to .70
[14:38] {Threei} not much of a pullback eh
[14:38] {BillyD} nvda OFF 16?
[14:38] {dino} watching fgxi, mon, pru, trgt, meli

[14:41] {nemo} yes
[14:41] {Threei} looks lovely
[14:41] {nemo} could bounce nice or be short
[14:42] {nemo} lovely?
[14:42] {nemo} ewwwwwwww
[14:42] {Threei} let's just see if it gives us close range
[14:42] {nemo} volume increasng a bit, might be a long
[14:44] {nemo} rimm .07 risk either way
[14:45] {Threei} if you went for aggressive FCX short, you are golden; if for regular, not too shabby either
[14:48] {Threei} one more leg down comes it looks like
[14:50] {Threei} .75 short FCX
[14:50] {Threei} if holding under .85 - .90
[14:51] {Threei} dies FCX
[14:51] {Threei} -s
[14:51] {fernp} please dies
[14:51] {fernp} -s
[14:52] {larisa} lol
[14:52] {Threei} no, don't bounce
[14:52] {Threei} just die
[14:52] {BillyD} you guys enter already?
[14:52] {BillyD} .75
[14:52] {nemo} you on dial up billy?
[14:53] {Threei} I did
[14:53] {BillyD} the .75 call?
[14:53] {larisa} 79 break they did short
[14:53] {Threei} but I have nice cushion on FCX, took aggressive short from 79.14 to 78.82
[14:54] {nemo} out75
[14:54] {Threei} ok, this second one is not the best idea
[14:54] {Threei} getting a bit nervous
[14:55] {Threei} and I like them to die calmly
[14:55] {nemo} it's market bounce time, dude
[14:55] {Threei} no way
[14:55] {Threei} this aggression will not stand
[14:55] {larisa} i missed .75 call, sorry Billy for confusion. vad makes too many "running" comments for my one line brain :)
[14:56] {nemo} trade what you see, not what you want to believe.
[14:56] {fernp} no go
[14:56] {Threei} no
[14:57] {Threei} what, no comments on "this aggression will not stand" reference? right after "dude"?
[14:57] {nemo} thanks George
[14:57] {Les} ok will call it quits on that. much better day for me. less trading. disciplined use of stops. happy with this. night all.

[15:03] {Threei} - Note: Investors are overweight on Russian and Brazilian equities. The risk is a sharp reversal in this consensus trade.
[15:08] {magoo} read RIMM vad?
[15:09] {Threei} rather up...
[15:09] {ilana} HGSI
[15:09] {Threei} in that it's likely to follow thr market up, and less likely to follow it down
[15:10] {Threei} HGSI is interesting
[15:10] {Threei} if market helps
[15:10] {Threei} this .40 break looks tempting
[15:13] {dino} trgt hl l break of .00
[15:13] {nemo} ahhh...rorschach chart
[15:21] {dino} lol, rev shark, real$ "interesting that obama states how well our tarp plan has worked, when it was instituted prior to his taking office. i guess if it didn't work well, it would be george bush's plan
[15:22] {Threei} and it's still a big question about how it worked
[15:22] {Threei} but let's move on to the next "solution looking for a problem":
[15:22] {Threei} are we going to cut the trees now?
[15:22] {dino} ironically, the mortgages are all still on fre, fnm books
[15:23] {Threei} 'cause CO2 is a harmful substance starting today
[15:23] {dino} no 3i, we are going to sue you for exhaling
[15:23] {Threei} that's OK, my lawyer will argue that jury and judge breatje too
[15:23] {Threei} but trees, what about them?
[15:24] {Threei} remember protester who brough a potted tree to Reagan, with sign "cut me before I kill again"?
[15:24] {dino} trees eat co2
[15:24] {Threei} only in the day
[15:24] {Threei} in the night they do the opposite
[15:24] {Moose} that fickle
[15:24] {Moose} s
[15:25] {dino} hmmm, never knew that
[15:25] {Threei} it's actually very complicated process
[15:26] {Threei} non linear
[15:26] {Threei} depending on time of the day, tree age, annual seasion
[15:26] {dino} hate to see what would happen to met if it lowered 2010 guidance
[15:26] {Threei} kind, location
[15:26] {fernp} all breakdown are working on WFC except the one that we played this morning lol
[15:26] {Threei} simple claim that they create oxygen and eliminate C)2 is far from truth
[15:27] {Threei} didn't we took another pne later one?
[15:27] {fernp} me yes
[15:28] {fernp} and i've played this .35 break
[15:28] {dino} cfsg
[15:28] {Threei} actually fern
[15:28] {Threei} this is important observation
[15:29] {Threei} for quite a while we tried to get most of our plays in the morning
[15:29] {Threei} and seond part of the day was usually fruitless
[15:29] {Threei} it seems to be changing
[15:29] {fernp} i know
[15:29] {Threei} not a first day today as we get nice steady selloff closer to ed
[15:29] {fernp} lately we are ending sessions with selloff
[15:29] {Threei} and while morning has a bit too much volatility
[15:30] {Threei} this selling starts looking like useable pattern
[15:32] {dino} not yet 3i
[15:32] {Threei} "In general, trees take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. Trees and other plants are this planet's main source of oxygen. trees at night give off carbon dioxide. Besides oxygen, carbon dioxide is about all a tree can give off in any great quantity.
[15:32] {Threei}
[15:32] {dino} and leaves, lol
[15:33] {Threei} During the daylight hours, plants produce oxygen. At night, they consume oxygen and release carbon dioxide.
[15:33] {Threei} there
[15:33] {Threei} let's cut them all
[15:33] {Threei} they are murderers
[15:33] {dino} out pru .49, +.24
[15:33] {Threei} leaves, dino... those release CO2 when decompose
[15:33] {Raven} {--------- cut and split 2 cords of firewood this summer
[15:34] {Threei} good job saving the planet Raven
[15:34] {Raven} thx
[15:34] {dino} i switched to natural gas, tired of the firewood work
[15:34] {Raven} I have nat gas
[15:34] {Threei} no one comments on that
[15:35] {Raven} super efficient wood burner heats whole house
[15:35] {Threei} this is fair warning
[15:35] {BillyD} lol
[15:35] {Raven} and splitting is good exercise ... except for my black right toenail
[15:36] {nemo} steel toe shoes
[15:36] {Raven} I have them now :)

[15:42] {Threei} ***Reminder: On 12/6 the FT reported that Citi was trying to convince US officials to allow it to repay $20B of its TARP funds
[15:43] {Threei} this reads like something surreal
