Dec 08 2009

That was mind-numbingly boring day. Between some scalps and stops, just slightly up thanks to GLD short; narrow range for the most of the day just didn't provide enough opportunities.

Session Time: Tue Dec 08 00:00:00 2009

[07:52] {Threei} JASO UPDATE: Weisel Raised JASO to Market Weight from Underweight, price target: $4

[08:12] {nemo} mornin' fern
[08:12] {nemo} day strider
[08:13] {nemo} you going to get pummelled with snow out there in Michigan?
[08:14] {Raven} possibly ... but there is going to be a mix of rain and snow in some areas so it is not a sure thang
[08:15] {nemo} you seem to have quite the affinity for certain vernacular
[08:15] {Raven} lol ... it amuses me
[08:16] {nemo} me too
[08:18] {Threei} who is that vernacular?
[08:18] {nemo} it's a "what" specifically "thang"
[08:31] {strider} AIG estimates lowered due to P&C segment weakness at UBS
[08:38] {Les} I disagree with this notion Vad. survival may well be wired into human beings, so suggests evolutionary psychology and biology.

[08:39] {Les} thank heavens learning is not compulsory.

[08:40] {Threei} Ayn Rand: humans are the only beings whose means of survival--reason--is not automatic
[08:40] {Les} not sure about free will nemo
[08:40] {nemo} Some people just give up and die

[09:31] {strider} in
[09:31] {Threei} 26.05 for scalpers

[09:32] {Threei} could be a trade we will revisit
[09:32] {Threei} ugh, missed UAUA

[09:51] {Threei} wtg ese, this is not an easy one to profit from
[09:51] {dino} gj
[09:52] {ese} definitely......
[09:52] {Threei} GERN's path in the market over last 10 years is marked with many tumbstones
[09:53] {ese} having a 1/2 from before helped......was able to give it a wide berth so it could move and i wasn't too woried about it....might have been dn $230.00 at most
[09:54] {Threei} that's a good dinner in Paprika Bistro
[09:54] {ese} because i was in i'd been watching it and so it was easy to see the momo

[10:22] {strider} out RIMM, avg. .70
[10:22] {Threei} can't stomach it billy
[10:22] {Threei} spread, thinness
[10:22] {magoo} sad when all we can get with RIMM is measly dime imo
[10:22] {Threei} (US) Reportedly Pres Obama to call for tax cuts and elemination of capital gains taxes on small business for one year
[10:23] {dino} rimm sucks
[10:23] {BillyD} lol
[10:23] {magoo} vads call
[10:23] {Threei} sheesh, just buy AAPL
[10:23] {dino} wow obama may finally get something
[10:23] {magoo} sensitive there boss?
[10:24] {dino} so if that would work, why ever have cap. gains tax?
[10:24] {Threei} I take offense on RIMM's part
[10:24] {nemo} gotta' soak the rich
[10:24] {Threei} poor bastard isn't to blame for market suckiness
[10:24] {nemo} that's anybody making over 40k a year, btw
[10:24] {dino} fear the reaper (destryer0
[10:24] {nemo} BOC
[10:25] {strider} BAC?
[10:25] {Threei} dunno dino... evil is in details
[10:25] {nemo} no in reply to Dino's reaper comment
[10:25] {Threei} I am yet to hear the proposxal before I get any optimistic
[10:26] {Les} wfc .25 b/d?
[10:26] {Threei} this is typical "let's solve our problems by extraction money from rich" administration
[10:26] {dino} ironic tho, he is admitting that lower taxes should get things moving
[10:26] {nemo} yeah, because a hiring tax credit is useless if you have no profits
[10:26] {Threei} starts looking like that Les
[10:27] {Threei} but the thing about WFC is,
[10:27] {Threei} it largely moves with market, gioving some divergincies here and there,
[10:27] {dino} i froze mtn when i took it
[10:27] {Threei} and while those divergencies hint olf likely direction
[10:27] {dino} kr too
[10:27] {Threei} it still needs market to lead
[10:28] {Threei} so, my thought is,
[10:28] {Threei} return to the idea of shorting it later in the day
[10:28] {Threei} when/if markert starts its late decsent
[10:28] {Threei} descent too
[10:29] {Threei} NANO honestly trying
[10:29] {strider} RIMM looking short.
[10:30] {dino} snhy spike, thin

[10:31] {Threei} - VIX index +5.3% to just over 23.00
[10:31] {BillyD} hard to tell if NANO has enough gas int the tank
[10:31] {Threei} volume is abot better today
[10:32] {Threei} a bit
[10:32] {Threei} it's one of those Billy...
[10:32] {strider} dino, KR

[10:36] {dino} cya les
[10:36] {nemo} we'll talk about him while he's gone
[10:37] {Threei} mags et all, my view on RIMM:
[10:37] {magoo} now AIG..THAT SUX along with DRYS
[10:37] {Threei} it's a great trading vehicle,
[10:37] {Threei} but as everything in life, it goes through cycles
[10:37] {Threei} contraction and expansion
[10:37] {Threei} its tradeability is contracting right now,
[10:37] {Threei} it will be back at some point
[10:37] {dino} like drinkability
[10:38] {Threei} it's Ecclesiatus or how you spell him

[13:46] {strider} Or most of us.

[15:19] {strider} who or what is swiper?
[15:20] {dino} kids' cartoon, think it was dora the explorer
[15:20] {Les} lol yeh I remember hiim
[15:21] {nemo} Well, then there was Glum on Gulliver's Travels, "We're doomed for sure."
[15:21] {dino} a bad racoon i believe
[15:21] {nemo} rimm wedge
[15:21] {Les} AONE b/d on .10 trigger?
[15:22] {dino} i typed it because, afternoons used to be my most profittable time of day, as i start slow
[15:22] {strider} dino, that's cause you get here 2 minutes before the bell} :)
[15:22] {nemo} nice one
[15:22] {Threei} well
[15:22] {Threei} chart wise yes
[15:23] {Les} vol. sucks
[15:23] {Threei} but volatility can be horrifying on AONE
[15:23] {dino} actually i'm in at 9:00 am, just doing my scanner and news rounds first
[15:23] {Les} k
[15:23] {strider} Well, excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me.
[15:23] {dino} nope
[15:23] {dino} :)
[15:23] {strider} aw c'mon.
[15:24] {dino} you guys are simply last on my to do list
[15:24] {strider} I figgered.
[15:24] {larisa} lol
[15:24] {BillyD} rofl
[15:24] {nemo} frig' watching you guys go back and forth missed .30 break fcx
[15:24] {Les} lol
[15:25] {nemo} oh and rimm broke the wedge
[15:26] {Les} ok ca suffit pour moi aujourd hui. A demain
[15:27] {nemo} wife's callin' huh?
[15:27] {Les} nah sleep calling. Mrs can wait
[15:31] {dino} all i had to do was hold meli, mtn and would've had awesome day, scalpers regrets
[15:31] {larisa} was just thinking about you and MTN :)
[15:31] {Threei} well, you know what happens when you decide to hold them
[15:33] {dino} ftbkd
[15:33] {Threei} ty dino but we need username too
[15:33] {dino} lol larisa, did you see me knock my head against the wall
[15:33] {larisa} yes :)
[15:37] {Threei} so far, no sel,loff, no rally... sideays action and incredibly boring at that
[15:37] {nemo} gap down day
[15:37] {Threei} if not for that GLD short, I wouldn't be able to explain why I bothered to wake up today
[15:38] {BillyD} AIG is strong
[15:38] {strider} AMZN is getting ready to do something....no idea what.
[15:38] {nemo} siting right on yesterday's close
[15:43] {Threei} look at AET guys
[15:43] {nemo} what specifically?
[15:43] {Threei} a lo of talk about public option getting killed in Senate today
[15:47] {Threei} maybe a quick closing play on .50 breakout when overnight gamblers decide to take AET home for a gaop if that's what happens in Senate
[15:48] {strider} stop?
[15:49] {Threei} .40 is nearest support
[15:49] {dino} talk of increasing medicare to 50 years instead of 65, aet and wlp, hum all sell med supps
[15:49] {Threei} but that close to day's end may have to cloe the play on time
[15:49] {nemo} fcx finishing near low
[15:49] {Threei} 55 dino
[15:50] {dino} ironically that would be the easiest plan, covers basic health, if mor desired, purchase supss. altho medicare and medicaid are basically broke too
[15:50] {dino} my typing stinks
[15:50] {nemo} all there going to do is put a big tax increase in, setup huge deductibles and cover nothing
[15:50] {dino} unh too
[15:51] {dino} but my bet is nothing gets passed. what good is it if nobody can pay w/o jobs. congress finally seeing that
[15:52] {BillyD} focus needs to be supplying goods globally
[15:53] {nemo} fcx selling off
[15:53] {dino} nemo, imo catastophic plans would work. look at the heath msa's they make people think twice before running to doctors.
[15:53] {Threei} no attempt to break, AET
[15:53] {Threei} but as this battle draws th resolution, this is a stock to wtch
[15:59] {dino} out rino .31 -.24
[15:59] {Threei} kay guys
[16:00] {Threei} really boring day
[16:00] {strider} ywn

[16:01] {larisa} what did you do with AMZN strider?
[16:01] {strider} You're not gonna sing, are you fern?}
