Jan 30 2009

Finally a nice day. Started out with some scalps, couple stops, slightly positive but nothing earthshaking. Then FAS gave us a string of quick scalps making a day much nicer. Glad to finish otherwise tough week on a winning note.

[08:53] {cosmo}
[08:53] {Onix} Good morning all
[08:53] {dino} ks dcc please
[08:53] {Threei}  onix :)
[08:56] {Threei}  got e-mail from someone who reads our trading logs saying:
[08:56] {Threei}  in case you are wondering what is behind PALM move,
[08:56] {Threei}  it's about to become a subject of bidding war
[08:56] {Threei}  initiated by DELL seeking entry in smartphone market
[08:57] {Threei}  and continued by AAPL and RIMM trying to prevent DELL from getting hands on PALM's echnoogy
[08:57] {elepet} good morning
[08:57] {cujo} morning el
[08:57] {Threei}  elepet :)
[08:58] {hawkfan4} i heard PALM tries really hard to keep their echnoogy a secret
[08:58] {elepet} and PALM moving up again
[08:58] {Threei}  not that I put any faith into "insider secrets" disseminated by e-mail
[08:58] {nemo} very logical though
[08:59] {Threei}  or have enough industry knowledge to evaluate the probability
[09:00] {dino} dell did announce phone entry last night
[09:00] {Threei}  01/29/09 07:04pm
[09:00] {Threei}  [DELL] Dell Inc May seek to move into the mobile phone business as early as next month - WSJ
[09:00] {Threei}  - Company is said to have a team of engineers working on the phones for over a year, focusing on "smart-phone" models
[09:01] {nemo} No.  But if you look at Dell, it runs from back office to desktop to mobile computing, that's basically what a PALM is, mobile computing.  Apple is primarily desktop, and with the Iphone-mobile computing.  RIMM-mobile computing.  Dell is in both business and consumer.  Apple-primarily consumer, RIMM-primarily business
[09:01] {Threei}  doesn't sound like they are gunning for PALM
[09:11] {ese} god morning
[09:11] {Threei}  ese :)
[09:11] {dino} complex
[09:11] {ese} Vad ,patience guys feel the earthquake about 5:20 am heere?
[09:12] {Threei}  no... reports said 4.6 in seattle
[09:12] {magoo} vad..whats the setup AMZN today?
[09:13] {Threei}  what do you mean today
[09:14] {Threei}  it's not like there is one setup for the day :)
[09:14] {magoo} well..its gonna be a player
[09:14] {magoo} but it may pullbk..or at open may run
[09:14] {Threei}  yes... but I don't know how to answer your question :)
[09:14] {Threei}  it will shape up to something
[09:14] {magoo} are u moody AGAIN
[09:14] {Threei}  again?
[09:14] {Threei}  ALWAYS!
[09:14] {magoo} ok ALWAYS
[09:15] {Threei}  there
[09:15] {nemo} battle plans only survive until initial engagement
[09:15] {magoo} there we go thinking alike
[09:15] {Threei}  ese, you felt it?
[09:17] {dino} you guys are tense today....take a chill
[09:17] {ese} ya thats what got me up
[09:17] {Threei}  we are dino... earthquake, you know :)
[09:17] {Threei}  wow... how come I haven't heard anything
[09:18] {Threei}  it's not like we are that far from each other
[09:18] {ese} I hate earthquakes.....any other disaster OK but earthquakes..........
[09:18] {Threei}  you would think if quake felt at your part from as far as Seattle, I should have felt it too
[09:18] {ese} at least you can see other things and have a chance to react.....but not an earthquake......
[09:19] {Threei}  sooo... our candidates so far PLAM, GERN, FAS
[09:19] {ese} it just hits you.......not time to react......give me tornados over this
[09:19] {Threei}  AMZN a bit later I think
[09:19] {Threei}  gotta let it calm down a little
[09:20] {dino} you see on trhe moon where i live, no earthquakes, tornados, etc. just snow, ice, cold
[09:20] {ese} I'll take it!!!!!
[09:20] {Threei}  nah... I'll take earthquake over ice and snow
[09:21] {cosmo} i like snow
[09:21] {Threei}  that's because you see it once every 15 years
[09:21] {cosmo} 25
[09:21] {Threei}  I've had my share... won't miss it it for another 25 years
[09:21] {Threei}  and then I die
[09:21] {Threei}  happily
[09:21] {fernp} Hello everybody
[09:21] {Threei}  fern :)
[09:22] {ese} fern
[09:22] {ese} anyway......whats the focus for this morning
[09:22] {Threei}  **consensus expectation: 61.9e v 61.9 preliminary
[09:22] {Threei}  - analyst estimates range between 60 and 65
[09:23] {Threei}  PALM, GERN, FAS, RIMM, AMZN
[09:23] {Threei}  and whatever scanner spits out
[09:23] {nemo} If you play FAS doesn't that bring FAZ in also...why or why not?
[09:24] {nemo} I mean...Yin and Yang, if you're into that sort of thing :)
[09:24] {Threei}  FAZ is much more volatile, thin, much hardcer to control risk
[09:24] {Threei}  look how much it dropped vs FAS spike
[09:25] {Threei}  60 cents on FAS vs 4 bucks on FAZ
[09:26] {nemo} yes, although there chart's are mirror images (almost)?
[09:26] {Threei}  sure
[09:26] {Threei}  you can play it if you are into that sort of thing, using FAS for read
[09:26] {Threei}  as it has smoother charts and easier triggers and stop to define
[09:26] {nemo} yeah, I like pain
[09:27] {nemo} oh "their charts"  damn english
[09:27] {cosmo} JNPR
[09:28] {cosmo} 15.43 hod

[09:40] {Threei}  GERN nears 8.50 resistance on daily
[09:40] {cujo} thanks Vad
[09:40] {cujo} great call
[09:40] {Threei}  in its usual jerky manner
[09:41] {Threei}  pullback to about .30 would be safer way to try it
[09:41] {dptl} gm all
[09:41] {Threei}  but overall, starts shaoing up as a runner
[09:41] {Threei}  dp :)
[09:42] {magoo} ty rimm bosds
[09:42] {Threei}  welcome
[09:42] {Threei}  AMZN, mama mia
[09:42] {Threei}  8.50 wall of offers gives GERN a pause
[09:42] {Threei}  but it should bust through it
[09:43] {Threei}  here is pullback
[09:43] {Threei}  maybe this way:
[09:43] {Threei}  half lot near .30
[09:43] {Threei}  stop under .10
[09:44] {Threei}  and add half lot if breaks .50
[09:45] {dino} larisa you nailed cat breakdown

[09:46] {Threei}  ok, who got GERN, you have options

[12:16] {Threei}  not a stellar day by any means but more or less decent, even though not very active
[12:16] {Threei}  I just don't want to push too much, this week was fairlty cold one
[12:17] {Threei}  so, plan at this point is to trade at reasonably low level of activity until performance picks up again,
[12:17] {Threei}  then increase activity
[12:17] {Threei}  sounds good?
[12:17] {hawkfan4} yessir

[12:29] {Threei}  it's too weird for me
[12:29] {nemo} I'll leave that alone
[12:29] {Threei}  at your discretion guys, who sees play - fine
[12:29] {Threei}  from the way it trades, it's probably not a day trade
[12:43] {Threei}  58 is closest chart support for AMZN
[12:43] {Threei}  it's likely to break it iof tested though, I wouldn't jump in it for bounce just yet
[12:43] {Threei}  rather let it break and look for bounce from under 58
[12:49] {dino} real$ is cracking me up. all the writers wanted obama and dems in the election. now, since they see what garbage they are pushing in the 800 b bill, they are all complaining about same old same old. so much for "change"
[12:49] {nemo} Anyway to play break of resistance on FAS?
[12:50] {Threei}  nemo, it's a valid play but I would prefger to play it conservatively
[12:50] {Threei}  wait for pullback
[12:50] {Threei}  if none comes, you miss the play, big deal
[12:50] {Threei}  but nothing went up without a few shakeouts this week
[12:50] {nemo} Mrs. Lincoln she wishes they missed the play :)
[12:50] {Threei}  lol
[12:52] {Threei}  9.75 - 9.80 zone is closest support
[12:52] {Threei}  if you tried 9.90 break, you would be in doubt at this point
[12:53] {Threei}  entry closer to .80 gives you beter stop and more comfort
[12:53] {nemo} mighta' just got euphoria spike
[12:55] {KSystems} s EAT .91 stop .01
[12:55] {nemo} amazon right now looks like my eeg
[12:56] {nemo} flat
[12:57] {dino} aapl sm l .90
[12:57] {Threei}  your GERN is working nicely hawk
[12:57] {hawkfan4} very
[12:58] {Threei}  there you go nemo... .81 - 82 entry works like charm
[12:58] {dino} they have an inflation problem w/oil's drop?
[12:58] {Threei}  you are already over 1:1
[12:59] {Threei}  compare it with .90 entry... enduring 10 cents pullback and being uo now just 3-5 cents
[12:59] {nemo} yeah...too much gray hair already
[13:00] {Threei}  this kind of entries is the way to go in this market
[13:00] {Threei}  way safer, easier on nerves and more profitable
[13:00] {Threei}  out +.16
[13:00] {Threei}  anyone went for it?
[13:00] {nemo} yeah, trends are 5 minutes...about my attention span
[13:00] {magoo} break up trigg AMZN vad?
[13:00] {Threei}  yup, mine is one of a moth too
[13:01] {hawkfan4} yeah, i much prefer early entries.  can always add if it starts working
[13:01] {nemo} that's insulting the moth
[13:01] {Threei}  can't tell mags
[13:01] {dino} trends? are there any that last more than minutes?
[13:01] {KSystems} AMP rest out b/e
[13:01] {Threei}  dino, their inflation is of different nature
[13:02] {Threei}  rouble drops like crazy vs USD
[13:02] {nemo} just like old times
[13:02] {dino} ahhhh, makes sense or cents
[13:03] {Threei}  deflation of commodities leads to currency inflation in commodity-based country
[13:03] {Threei}  (in a perverse way)
[13:04] {nemo} value of GDP based on commodities, therefore currency follows suit
[13:05] {KSystems} EAT stopped -.11
[13:06] {Threei}  how come that wasn't a string attached to orginal TARP?
[13:06] {nemo} Paulson?
[13:07] {Threei}  ok... what the heck happened?
[13:07] {Threei}  no news to warrant this
[13:08] {nemo} progras programmed to trade to pivot points on neutral days?
[13:09] {elepet} Remember PAL? I just bought some because it's cheap and I had to buy something. market is too insane.
[13:10] {elepet} and it went up after i bought it.
[13:10] {Threei}  questionable reason for entry, elepet...
[13:10] {elepet} I know. but not much to lose. LOL
[13:10] {nemo} He's having flashbacks to the tech bubble...or maybe a previous life during the tulip craze.
[13:11] {KSystems} s hl AYE .79 stop .01
[13:11] {Threei}  watch FAS pullback
[13:11] {Threei}  long entry from under 10
[13:11] {dino} aapl stop to .45
[13:12] {dino} mcd stop to .85 - all dayer
[13:14] {nemo} fas didn't come to my old dog...bitch
[13:14] {dino} aapl to .55
[13:15] {dino} out aapl .55, +.65
[13:15] {Threei}  wtg
[13:15] {cujo} nice dino
[13:15] {hawkfan4} nice 
[13:16] {dino} ty, sitting around all day...tough to do
[13:16] {Threei}  calling stocks names helps nemo
[13:16] {nemo} I didn't know that?
[13:16] {KSystems} s hl SYKE .08 stop .31
[13:17] {dino} mcd stopped .85, +.40
[13:17] {Threei}  FAS arrived
[13:17] {cujo} in
[13:17] {Threei}  stop under .85.85
[13:18] {Threei}  seeing double
[13:18] {nemo} huh?
[13:18] {magoo} in
[13:20] {Threei}  there you go... patient waiting for the market to come to you works once again
[13:21] {KSystems} s MRX .13 stp .21
[13:22] {Threei}  since it hit over 1:1 for .92 entry, I'd trail stop to under .90
[13:22] {magoo} hawk GS read?
[13:22] {Threei}  {hawk} G and S
[13:22] {hawkfan4} kinda psycho right now, not sure
[13:23] {magoo} i hit long ,68\
[13:23] {Threei}  no need to call me names hawk
[13:23] {hawkfan4} lol :) we're all a little crazy
[13:23] {nemo} Can you imagine if we were all in a room together...not pretty
[13:23] {Threei}  well, I actually took offense at "right now"
[13:24] {Threei}  as if there are times when I am not
[13:24] {nemo} you're bi-polar
[13:25] {Threei}  don't take FAS here this time
[13:25] {Threei}  goes lower most likely
[13:27] {magoo} stopped
[13:27] {KSystems} AYE out half +.21
[13:28] {nemo} FAS!!!
[13:28] {Threei}  told ya
[13:28] {Threei}  no touchie
[13:28] {nemo} no feelie
[13:28] {Threei}  :)
[13:29] {Threei}  tell me this market is not bipolar
[13:29] {hawkfan4} really is
[13:29] {nemo} O.K.  the market isn't bipolar
[13:29] {Threei}  spike out of nowhere, then sharp drop out of that same place
[13:30] {dino} scalpers market only
[13:31] {Threei}  totally
[13:31] {Threei}  look at GS
[13:31] {KSystems} MRX out half +.08
[13:31] {nemo} bounce at 81.6
[13:31] {hawkfan4} oh yeah, mags, down :)
[13:32] {Threei}  now we know for sure, market wants bad bank
[13:32] {hawkfan4} guess he kept his job after dropping the f-bomb yesterday
[13:32] {nemo} Did he say F***** Bad Bank today
[13:32] {nemo} hawk
[13:32] {Threei}  that's third confirmation, can't be coincidence
[13:33] {hawkfan4} dunno nemo
[13:34] {Threei}  the second they say bad bank goes ahead, I just hope we have a fraction of second to buy all FAS we can afford
[13:35] {nemo} Thank god for margin...but they'll do it over the weekend
[13:35] {Threei}  then we will be left in the dust
[13:36] {Threei}  but if we get so lucky, make sure you took out second, third and fourth mortgae, sold family posessions, wife and kids, and bought all FAS you could
[13:36] {nemo} Bad bank will have all the banks in accumulation mode.  Willain's stuff...
[13:37] {KSystems} SYKE half out +.23
[13:37] {nemo} Reminds me of joke.  "My wife said, "You either stop hunting, or I'm leaving."..................."I'm gonna' miss my wife."
[13:38] {nemo} That croaked the small cap triple also
[13:38] {Threei}  mine jujst read these lines, musingly asked where the buy button is, where to type FAS, and went to phone someone asking whether she could sell me to them
[13:38] {nemo} hehehehe
[13:39] {Threei}  drop is not done yet
[13:39] {dino} i guess i am an idiot, but fdic insures banks, they should be pre=packing bankruptcies and letting the strong pick up the leftovers. i know alot of our local bank officers...they are going gangbusters picking up loans they never had shpts at before. let the system work
[13:40] {Threei}  you are coming from assumption that capitalism should have a chance dino... it's not assumption they operate on
[13:40] {dino} also, ford hasn't taken govt. $$$ but chrysler and gm have. its unfair, let them pre-package bankruptcy, ford picks up the slack. c'mon!
[13:40] {Threei}  whoa GS
[13:41] {dino} but you know what vad, capitalism has worked here for 220 years, one or two bad years should not alter the entire model
[13:41] {Threei}  moreso, it was not capitalism that failed
[13:41] {Threei}  it was injection of socialistic ideas in it
[13:42] {Threei}  but, who are you going to tell that? to socialists?
[13:42] {KSystems} AYE out 1/4 +.42
[13:42] {dino} yes! 
[13:42] {Threei}  KS, this is really irritating
[13:42] {KSystems} wooo-hoooo
[13:42] {dino} and ks, gfj again
[13:42] {Threei}  stop that
[13:42] {KSystems} thanks dino
[13:42] {Threei}  btw guys notice:
[13:42] {Threei}  financiaals drop like there is no tomorrow
[13:42] {Threei}  look at KLAC for instance
[13:43] {Threei}  RIMM
[13:43] {Threei}  nowehere that bad
[13:43] {dino} this is your market ks
[13:43] {Threei}  and some are actually holding nicely
[13:43] {Threei}  this is our clue to the future rally,
[13:43] {dino} but vad look at aapl and many others
[13:43] {Threei}  most likely led by other sectors, not finjancials
[13:44] {Threei}  AAPL barely came to prvious low
[13:44] {Threei}  look at GS
[13:44] {Threei}  buck and half below previous low before first bounce attempt
[13:45] {dino} still dropped hard imo
[13:45] {Threei}  ok, let' watch FAS for pullback and double bottom
[13:45] {Threei}  sure... I am talking about relative strength
[13:48] {Threei}  pullback under .20 was too fast and shallow to get in
[13:49] {Threei}  I was waiting for something close to .10
[13:55] {Threei}  jeez
[13:55] {Threei}  I started typing FAS at .21
[13:56] {Threei}  and it was above .30 before I could finish
[13:56] {Threei}  what the
[13:56] {Threei}  who said what where this time?
[13:57] {cujo} fas makin moves
[13:57] {hawkfan4} nutty
[13:57] {Threei}  moves?
[13:57] {Threei}  leaps of crazy anthelope
[13:57] {KSystems} drunken kangaroo?
[13:58] {Threei}  who got turpentine injection in the butt
[14:02] {Threei}  dissolve senate
[14:02] {Threei}  issue decree
[14:02] {Threei}  done
[14:03] {magoo} form new socialist party
[14:03] {Threei}  we are so close to USSR model, why not just go ahead and make it official
[14:10] {cosmo} how's 'silicone curtain'?
[14:11] {KSystems} s sm PKX .10 stop .51
[14:14] {KSystems} i have never even heard about those companies...
[14:18] {Threei}  KS... saw those prints that took .10 out?
[14:18] {KSystems} no
[14:18] {Threei}  a minute ago?
[14:19] {KSystems} nah, didnt watch it
[14:19] {Threei}  anyway... you are welcome
[14:19] {KSystems} i put my strategy in, not touching it anymore
[14:19] {KSystems} lol
[14:19] {KSystems} need some market help to the downside
[14:20] {Threei}  market is not much about help this week, any direction
[14:21] {cosmo} its coiling?
06[14:23] * Threei pokes PKX with sharp stick
[14:26] {Threei}  hmmm... I am afraid that was wrong side
[14:26] {Threei}  sorry ks
[14:27] {KSystems} AYE out rest +.27
[14:27] {KSystems} MRX out rest -0.01
[14:28] {KSystems} PKX stopped -.55
[14:28] {Threei}  another crazy jump FAS
[14:31] {KSystems} l hl EQY .87 stop .64
[14:40] {KSystems} s sm SAFM .74 stop .01
[14:46] {Threei}  Canada is up in arms about that
[14:48] {dino} protectionism is not the answer
[14:50] {Threei}  it is - if you look for way to trurn recession into depression
[14:52] {nemo} feels like market is just going to fizzle to the close...then again...wouln't be the first time I was wrong today.
[14:52] {Threei}  really?
[14:52] {Threei}  hmmm
[14:52] {Threei}  I for one am never wrong
[14:52] {Threei}  I am early
[14:53] {Threei}  or fashinably late
[14:53] {nemo} look at volume...
[14:54] {KSystems} EQY stopped -.25
[14:56] {dino} so, let me see, the plan is to 1) keep insolvent companies alive 2) keep their current (mis)management 3) add protectionism 4) give unions more power 5) increase welfare payments 6) tax the income earners even more
[14:57] {dino} sounds more like a kingdom than a country
[14:57] {Threei}  7) limit trade with other countries
[14:57] {dino} "change is coming" just forgot to mention towards socialism
[14:58] {Threei}  then again... e new it from the campaign, didn't we
[14:58] {Threei}  magoo, don't yell
[14:58] {dino} my apologies magoo, just not seeing any trades
[14:58] {Threei}  you almost rendered me deaf
[14:59] {magoo} you guys do this EVERY OTHER DAY
[14:59] {Threei}  'cause we enjoy our jaundicity
[15:00] {dino} saves me $
[15:00] {Threei}  if you see any worthy trade, feel free to share
[15:00] {dino} feels like yesterday so far, big down may be coming
[15:03] {dino} aapl sm l .90
[15:04] {dino} stop is .57
[15:05] {Threei}  FAS is about to dive under .20
[15:06] {Threei}  looking for entry
[15:06] {Threei}  ideally around .10
[15:08] {Threei}  didn't give a chance
[15:12] {KSystems} SAFM stopped -.51
[15:19] {nemo} geez
[15:20] {dino} stopped aapl -.33
[15:20] {nemo} feel like any plays now might be  sucker's bet
[15:21] {dino} -5% since wed. all 3 averages
[15:21] {_vinthombre} FAS entry?
[15:22] {Threei}  one more leg down
[15:22] {Threei}  closer to 9
[15:22] {magoo} AMZN long  vad?
[15:23] {Threei}  crossback over 58 mags
[15:23] {magoo} if mkt bounces
[15:23] {Threei}  if holding above .85
[15:24] {magoo} unreal; strenght it has
[15:24] {dino} i should've stayed w/my gut feel
[15:24] {dino} [15:00] {dino} feels like yesterday so far, big down may be coming
[15:25] {Threei}  FAS almost ready
[15:25] {Threei}  in .96
[15:25] {Threei}  astop under .90
[15:26] {Threei}  half out .07

Jan 29 2009

Many room members found quite a few nice plays; I was mostly sitting things out. Other than GERN nice run-up and something unusual happening with PALM, not much interesting.

[08:49] {hawkfan4} that actually sounds like a good idea es
[08:50] {Threei}  great... now we have to convert ton to barrel
[08:51] {nemo} The Tsar is back....
[08:51] {nemo} that's like $25 a barrel
[08:52] {Threei}  with abundance of oil on the market, sounds like surefire way to render themselves irrelevant
[08:52] {nemo} or give others ideas
[08:53] {cosmo} why burn oil when you can burn bridges?
[08:53] {nemo} Only temporary cosmo
[08:54] {cosmo} yes... fires eventulaly die
[08:54] {Threei}  I saw Gore on TV yesterday... he told me we are at the tipping point
[08:54] {cosmo} eventually
[08:54] {cosmo} cheers then
[08:55] {Threei}  I expected the sentence to end with "... frm warming to cooling"
[08:55] {Onix} you spoke to Gore on TV Vad?
[08:55] {Threei}  well, they talk to me... sometimes I try to asnwer
[08:55] {Onix} :D
[08:55] {Threei}  but my answers are rarely suitable for women and children
[08:56] {nemo} Yeah, archeologists centuries from now will find him frozen in a glacier
[08:56] {Onix} :O
[08:56] {Threei}  and considering how rich Russian is in swearing department...
[08:58] {Onix} you don't have one of those rubber bricks you can throw at the tV?
[08:59] {Onix} it works better than throwing the remote ... trust me
[09:01] {Threei}  no, I don't go that far
[09:02] {Threei}  swearing at TV is relaxation tchnique to me
[09:03] {nemo} I was at a party once where the guy who owned the place got up and put a 1 wood right through the screen...relaxation I guess
[09:03] {nemo} nice swing actually
[09:04] {cujo} what was showing on the TV that made him that mad?
[09:04] {cujo} and by 1 wood, do you mean a Driver or a 1 iron?
[09:04] {hawkfan4} i'm guessing it was CNBC
[09:04] {cujo} ha ha ha
[09:05] {nemo} I was "rather drunk at the time" to quote a favorite Pom.  I don't remember 1 wood=driver, yes.  Sorry....OLD school.  Nah, twenty years ago.

[09:19] {Threei}  as much as ChanServ enjoys it... I'd still urge you to talk to KS and set it up right finally :)
[09:19] {ese} the only way that little message could be more annoying is if they put in capitols and highlighted the word "YOU" are not permitted etc etc

[09:23] {nemo} a pimple on his a$$ is a brain tumor
[09:23] {nemo} had to...sorry
[09:25] {magoo} i need help K..but later ok?
[09:25] {KSystems} sure

[09:27] {nemo} were you sitting down?
[09:27] {magoo} but wanna trade 
[09:27] {magoo} so later
[09:27] {Threei}  skipping first min utes guys, don't see anything trade-ready
[09:29] {i2romantis} my hunch is that DRYS is too low, we'll see
[09:29] {Threei}  could be i2r, it's just first reaction on such dump is violwent,
[09:30] {Threei}  risk is large, and this was not a very safe stock to begin with
[09:30] {i2romantis} true
[09:30] {dino} secondary $500m drys
[09:30] {Threei}  I would prefer very sharp selloff on it, one of those "out of anything remotely reminding sensible"
[09:31] {Threei}  those produce more readable scalps
[09:31] {dino} might be easier to play tbsi, nat
[09:31] {Threei}  or prolonged consolidation, digestion of selling pressujre, then break
[09:32] {Threei}  FAS nice jump
[09:32] {Threei}  watching if it pulls back again to form double bottom

[14:00] {Threei}  I am hesitant to make a call on it, but PALM feels like something is ahead still
[14:04] {Threei}  if not for the general market conditions... 9 is the least it could do
[14:04] {Threei}  most likely more
[14:05] {elepet} i'm still in from 7.96 anad it feels strong for some reason.
[14:05] {Threei}  very
[14:05] {Threei}  - says Obama may ask for more TARP funding beyond $700B, but would have to make a strong case for it.
[14:05] {Threei}  heh
[14:09] {Threei}  the way PALM trades makes me think some news is coming, and we see a result of leak
[14:10] {elepet} it actually has been going up steadily for the past couple of weeks.

[15:53] {Threei}  if it shows more strength tomorrow, you will have ample opportunity to add
[15:53] {dino} cya nemo

Jan 28 2009

Somewhat tiresome day. One of those where you have the right read on the market yet hard time utilizing it. Only toward to end of the day things started working out and gave a few nice trades on HIG, FAS, RIMM, DRYS

Session Time: Wed Jan 28 00:00:00 2009

[07:29] {hawkfan4} 'ally
[07:31] {Threei}  "bad bank" inspired?
[07:31] {hawkfan4} that and i think europe and asia up nice
[07:32] {hawkfan4} haven't had enough coffee yet 
[07:32] {Threei}  that's wrong 'rally
[07:32] {Threei}  IMO
[07:32] {Threei}  will fizzle out
[07:32] {Threei}  but who cares... we will take it while it lasts
[07:33] {hawkfan4} think so too, fed day, who knows
[07:33] {Threei}  yeah, and mainly... I just don't think any rally led by financials is going to last
[07:34] {Threei}  recovery in real economy, reversal in job market etc is what needed,
[07:34] {Threei}  thus rally led by techs, yeah, yhat I believe
[07:35] {Threei}  and other stuff like that,
[07:35] {Threei}  stocks that forecast recovery in their respective sectors in real economy
[07:36] {hawkfan4} someday they'll show their hand, but i agree, the financials are a fade at some point
[07:38] {hawkfan4} need more coffee, back in a few
[07:52] {nemo} Gruess dich!
[07:56] {Threei}  nemo :)
[07:58] {nemo} Wie geht's heute (nachmittag?) Jung?
[07:59] {Threei}  umm... who are you talking to? :)
[08:00] {nemo} Oh yeah, it wasn't K that responded.  Morning vodka pick-me-ups might not be a good idea.
[08:00] {nemo} Vad :)
[08:01] {nemo} Oh, the Post Office tried to deliver the  BVO my next door neighbor....
[08:01] {Threei}  lol
[08:02] {Threei}  BAC is trying
[08:02] {hawkfan4} ugg, still looking at my order for BAC at 7.39 that i didn't send
[08:03] {Threei}  C is knocking against 4.30
[08:03] {nemo} Yeah, I heard financials took off last night on talks of the bank
[08:05] {KSystems} hi nemo ;)
[08:05] {Threei}  01/27/09 05:04pm
[08:05] {Threei}  (US) US bad bank plan may be announced next week - CNBC's Liesman
[08:05] {Threei}  - Also reports sources say a bank insurance plan similar to the arrangements given to BoA and Citi is in the works, though sources say it will not be "systematic."
[08:05] {Threei}  - Follow Up as of 11:54 PM EST: Reportedly, the FDIC's Chairman Bair wants to run the bad bank.
[08:05] {Threei}  - Reminder: Senator Dodd confirmed earlier that the Obama Administration is mulling a "bad bank" solution
[08:05] {nemo} K :) guten Nachmittag.
[08:07] {nemo} RIMM not doing too badly either
[08:10] {hawkfan4} morning nemo, all
[08:10] {hawkfan4} BAC .70 break Vad?
[08:11] {Threei}  well... as much as technicals can be trusted premarket
[08:11] {hawkfan4} :) true
[08:11] {Threei}  look at DRYS
[08:12] {Threei}  C chewed through .30... and stalled
[08:13] {Threei}  trying now
[08:14] {Threei}  BALTIC DRY BULK INDEX +1%
[08:15] {Threei}  FAS is up big
[08:16] {Threei}  one of the ways to play financial sector
[08:17] {nemo} Maybe can pay for the Bahamas toay :)
[08:17] {nemo} today
[08:17] {Threei}  FAS is FINANCIAL BULL 3X
[08:17] {hawkfan4} yep, FAZ 3X bear
[08:17] {nemo} Yeah, watch FAS regularly, and it's small cap brother TNA (gotta' love the call letters)
[08:17] {hawkfan4} TYH 3X tech bull
[08:18] {nemo} ERX, ERY energy
[08:18] {nemo} hawk-from Chicago?
[08:19] {hawkfan4} yessir
[08:19] {hawkfan4} where are you?
[08:19] {Threei}  WFC, mama mia
[08:19] {nemo} Hull, Esposito, Makita
[08:19] {nemo} Boston
[08:19] {hawkfan4} Orr
[08:19] {nemo} or was Hull Detroit? getting ol
[08:20] {hawkfan4} Borque
[08:20] {nemo} Yeah, I grew up watching Orr...absolute Magician
[08:20] {hawkfan4} Bobby Hull chicago
[08:20] {nemo} Bourque was such a stalwart class act.  When he won the cup with Colorado, he brought it to Boston to share with the fans.  He settled here
[08:21] {hawkfan4} yeah, i liked him
[08:21] {nemo} on a market, does everything rocket out of the gate, or do we get the proverbial "pull back"?
[08:22] {Threei}  yes
[08:22] {nemo} helpful
[08:22] {nemo} definite maybe I see
[08:24] {Threei}  we are getting first pullback since 8 am in financials
[08:25] {Threei}  if we get so lucky to see C 10-15 cents lower, worth considering
[08:25] {Threei}  BAC, 20-25 cents
[08:28] {nemo} larisa :)
[08:28] {larisa} good morning :)
[08:28] {Threei}  larisa :)
[08:28] {larisa} nemo, vad :)
[08:29] {elepet} good morning all
[08:29] {Threei}  elepet :)
[08:30] {Threei}  not much of pullback so far
[08:31] {Threei}  maybe double top and finally some dip
[08:33] {Threei}  if C holds .45 and breaks .52, that would be little C&H
[08:33] {cujo} morning 
[08:34] {Threei}  cujo :)
[08:35] {cujo} started watching the swing trading video last night.  
[08:35] {cujo} picture of your trading room is funny.

[09:07] {nemo} they hate the cold
[09:08] {cosmo} oh?
[09:08] {nemo} now their cousins the Yeti, on the other hand...
[09:09] {Threei}  if DRYS opens around this level, one of two scenarios is likely:
[09:09] {Threei}  first (my preferrable) is, sharp drop, probably to 11.70- 11.80, then strong rebound
[09:10] {Threei}  second, more risky, break of 11.30 and big jjump
[09:10] {nemo} 11.30?
[09:10] {Threei}  12.30
[09:10] {nemo} ty
[09:12] {elepet} I'm betting on the latter.  hehehehe. that's why i'm still holding.
[09:13] {magoo} just keep in mind...sell this pop could be in the cards
[09:13] {magoo} not saying it is
[09:13] {magoo} but keep in mind
[09:14] {magoo} vad..u watching any of the banks?
[09:14] {Threei}  C, BAC
[09:15] {magoo} WFC C UBS JPM STT
[09:15] {Threei}  you may want to watch FAS also
[09:15] {Threei}  x3 financials
[09:16] {magoo} a long fund?
[09:16] {Threei}  yes
[09:16] {Threei}  FAZ is short one
[09:16] {magoo} faz a short fund correct?
[09:16] {magoo} as i typed
[09:16] {hawkfan4} FAZ is the short 3X financials
[09:16] {magoo} u read my moind
[09:16] {Threei}  scary
[09:17] {nemo} psychic cellmates
[09:17] {Threei}  I have to say for the record, I strongly disagree with most I see in there
[09:17] {nemo} hehehehe
[09:17] {nemo} is it that affinity for sheep vad?
[09:18] {dino} xlf 2x
[09:18] {Threei}  I'll leave it to mags to comment on that
[09:19] {nemo} uyg too Dino
[09:19] {dino} ty
[09:20] {nemo} It's almost like they're all milling around the starting line
[09:21] {dino} fed 2:15 today
[09:21] {Threei}  yeah
[09:21] {nemo} I think the only news that could come out of that is neutral or bad
[09:21] {dino} imo, just relax at open, lets see where it wants to go
[09:21] {Threei}  although I don't know what can come out of it that would be of any surprise
[09:21] {nemo} raising interest rates
[09:22] {dino} lol
[09:22] {Threei}  seems pretty much predetermined non-event
[09:22] {nemo} I agree...that's what scares me...that's what I logically think should happen
[09:22] {Threei}  as far as rates policy goes, we are bound to stall for a while
[09:23] {Threei}  no room to cut and no one is so crazy to start raising just yet
[09:24] {dptl} gm all
[09:24] {Threei}  dp :)
[09:24] {ese} morning
[09:24] {cujo} morning
[09:24] {fernp} hello everybody
[09:24] {Threei}  ese :)
[09:24] {Threei}  fern :)
[09:25] {Threei}  DRYS so far holds the level
[09:25] {Threei}  C and BAC pulled back a bit
[09:26] {Threei}  I'll repost on DRYS for late joiners
[09:27] {Threei}  08:13am Baltic Dry Bulk Index +1%, seventh consecutive increase
[09:28] {elepet} all components are way up today. 
[09:29] {Threei}  FAS is trying to consolidate under 11.20
[09:30] {Threei}  hopefully opening ranges will form over couple minutes, immediate breaks are tough to play
[09:30] {Threei}  DRY seems to go for the first scenario
[09:31] {Threei} Long Setup:  DRYS  .15 if holding above 12, half lot
[09:32] {Threei}  FAS jumped
[09:32] {KSystems} in DRYS
[09:32] {Threei}  big offers there KS... don't be first to buy
[09:35] {KSystems} and out
[09:36] {larisa} STT
[09:36] {Threei}  yup, switches to deeper drop and bounce scenario
[09:36] {Threei}  STT is pure crazy
[09:36] {ese} CENX dino...downgraded from strong buy o buy
[09:36] {nemo} perfect for Mags
[09:37] {Threei}  DRYS is ready
[09:37] {Threei}  .90 break
[09:37] {dino} sm eqix l .00
[09:37] {nemo} look at the orer at .90
[09:37] {nemo} order
[09:38] {Threei}  that's why its break is long trigger
[09:38] {nemo} missed it
[09:39] {Threei} Long Setup:  PLD  11.30 break
[09:39] {Threei}  stop under .20
[09:41] {nemo} what's stop on DRYS .80
[09:41] {Threei}  .75
[09:42] {Threei}  PLD no worky
[09:43] {nemo} lot ov overhead @12 on DRYS
[09:44] {nemo} no worky=invalidate?
[09:45] {hawkfan4} means stopped
[09:45] {Threei}  STT
[09:46] {fernp} cover C +.15
[09:47] {dino} sounds like stt is putting itself up for sale
[09:49] {dino} out eqix .50, +.50
[09:49] {hawkfan4} nice
[09:49] {dino} apol not participating
[09:49] {nemo} Vad would there be  a lot of selling @ this level of DRYS because of the gap up overnight?
[09:50] {dino} ty hawk
[09:50] {Threei}  who cares about whys?
[09:51] {hawkfan4} FAS .25, stop 11
[09:51] {Threei}  C
[09:51] {nemo} probabilities
[09:52] {hawkfan4} stop to 11.10 on FAS
[09:52] {dino} are you sure its not pass the steak?
[09:52] {dino} talking his book
[09:52] {Threei}  I understand he has a better idea
[09:53] {dino} they need a "bad trades" bank too
[09:54] {cujo} ha ha ha.  error acct bank?
[09:54] {Threei}  market is shaky here
[09:54] {dino} watching t, vz, apol
[09:55] {dino} massive gap ndx from open
[09:55] {Threei}  would hate to see repetition of this yesterday's sharp up and down with no rhytm
[09:55] {fernp} DRYS is forming a DBI
[09:56] {Threei}  either that or double bottom
[09:56] {nemo} hope it's a salmon?
[09:56] {Threei}  nah
[09:56] {dino} gap fill and rock after fed mtg my bet
[09:56] {Threei}  DRYS is practically never a salmon
[09:57] {Threei}  who is uncomfirtable, just scratch it
[09:57] {Threei}  it's around breakeven
[09:57] {nemo} trade the plan
[10:01] {Threei}  FAS looks better and better for you hawk
[10:01] {Threei}  hope I don't jinx it
[10:01] {magoo} RIMM vad..reading it?
[10:02] {hawkfan4} agree, stop under .20 now
[10:02] {Threei}  looks like .90 break on RIMM mags
[10:02] {KSystems} should drys stop be trailed?
[10:02] {Threei}  if holding .70 and if market helps
[10:03] {Threei}  .80 held a few times KS
[10:03] {Threei}  so, it's reasonable
[10:05] {Threei}  lost support
[10:06] {KSystems} stopped
[10:06] {fernp} stopped
[10:06] {dino} t sm l .00
[10:06] {Onix} stppped
[10:06] {nemo} stopped
[10:07] {dino} apol filling gap
[10:09] {Threei}  HIG woke up
[10:09] {Threei}  long time no see
[10:10] {ese} L DISH .80 3/4
[10:10] {Threei}  remember my yesterday's "odd call" on NURO?
[10:11] {hawkfan4} yep, strange stock
[10:13] {Threei}  HIG, sharp pullback into .50 will be interesting for bounce
[10:17] {Threei}  partialing any on FAS yet hawk?
[10:17] {Threei}  or you are in till insane numbers?
[10:18] {Threei}  NURO... sheesh
[10:18] {hawkfan4} gonna dump 1/2 if i see .45 bid
[10:20] {hawkfan4} now .55
[10:20] {hawkfan4} out 1/2 + .30
[10:20] {ese} OUT DISH .04 +.24
[10:20] {Threei}  wtg
[10:21] {ese} tks
[10:22] {hawkfan4} dumped the rest .55
[10:23] {Threei}  .35 - .40 is probably re-entry
[10:26] {nemo} drys back on?
[10:27] {Threei}  on pullback, maybe\
[10:27] {Threei}  breakouts don't work so far
[10:27] {magoo} agree vad
[10:28] {nemo} alot want out at 12
[10:28] {dino}  algt waking up
[10:28] {dino} hod trig imo
[10:29] {hawkfan4} watching BAC .60 break
[10:30] {Threei}  *DOE CRUDE: +6.2M V +2.7ME
[10:30] {Threei}  GASOLINE: -121K V +1.5ME;
[10:34] {Threei}  anyone took FAS on pullback into .40?
[10:35] {cujo} caught that one hawk.  Thanks. 
[10:35] {hawkfan4} got back in .63, nice cujo
[10:36] {cujo} yeah in .62 out here 1:1
[10:36] {cujo} drys making moves
[10:39] {dino} ughhhhh es, we screwed up apol
[10:40] {dino} was waiting 77.22
[10:40] {Threei}  - A congressional Vote is scheduled for today
[10:42] {Threei}  HIG's pullbacks are not as deep as we would want
[10:42] {Threei}  closer to 17 I'd feel safer
[10:43] {Threei}  but if market stages another break, probably won't happen
[10:45] {cujo} l GS .11
[10:46] {dino} obama meets w/ceo's "hey guys, what will you give me if i get you tax $"
[10:48] {Threei} Long Setup:  CHK  .47 if holding above .35
[10:49] {magoo} in
[10:49] {KSystems} in
[10:50] {fernp} in
[10:51] {cujo} in
[10:51] {cujo} target Vad?
[10:51] {dino} out algt .68, +.18, markets pull back
[10:52] {Threei}  as always
[10:52] {Threei}  half out around 1:1
[10:52] {cujo} thanks
[10:52] {Threei}  .50 break should give a spike
[10:53] {dino} wmt, mcd negative
[10:53] {Threei}  HIG better pullback
[10:55] {magoo} as with anything mkt related
[10:55] {magoo} the bathroom indicator has switched today
[10:55] {magoo} if go in restrm..mkt goes up
[10:56] {magoo} so play accordingly
[10:56] {Threei}  just let us know
[10:56] {magoo} yup
[10:57] {Threei}  missed HIG by 1 cent
[10:57] {Threei}  anyone caught it?
[10:58] {cujo} nope
[10:58] {hawkfan4} nope

[11:09] {Threei}  Worse it could be until you quit whining.
[11:09] {Threei}  6. When you are confused -- I will use little words.
[11:09] {Threei}  7. When you are sick -- Stay the hell away from me until you are well
[11:09] {Threei}  Again. I don't want whatever you have.
[11:09] {Threei}  8. When you fall -- I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.
[11:09] {Threei}  9. This is my oath.... I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask;
[11:09] {Threei}  'because you are my friend'.
[11:09] {Threei}  now, guess who sent that to me
[11:10] {nemo} Vad lies

[12:03] {Threei}  you are thinking .20 reak on DRYS still mags?
[12:03] {elepet} magoo..are youa DRYS fan?
[12:04] {i2romantis} CHK?
[12:04] {Threei}  not sure about it i2r
[12:05] {magoo} more like antiDRYS here

[12:05] {nemo} so....wetships?
[12:05] {elepet} I can't seem to sell it. in from 11.82 yesterday.
[12:06] {nemo} emotionally attached again elepet?
[12:06] {elepet} yup.
[12:06] {Threei}  it's just a symbol
[12:06] {Threei}  4 letters
[12:06] {Threei}  what to be attached to
[12:07] {nemo} must have been somethin' in his childhood
[12:07] {cujo} going to run some errands.  See you all in a few. 
[12:07] {Threei}  in all fairness, it does form the setup... .10 - .20
[12:08] {magoo} agrre vad..but really do hate it
[12:08] {Threei}  AAPL strength
[12:09] {Threei}  HIG is ready for sharp dive
[12:09] {nemo} getting right shoulder on FAS?
[12:11] {Threei}  looked like dive under .50, HIG... held above
[12:13] {i2romantis} out CHK +.15
[12:14] {dino} gj
[12:15] {i2romantis} learning to be emotionally detached from price going up after i sell :)
[12:16] {magoo} out .71 CHK
[12:16] {magoo} TY vad
[12:16] {Threei}  HIG... .75 break if breaks are back
[12:16] {Threei}  can't tell whether they are...
[12:16] {Threei}  .50 one worked
[12:17] {Threei}  so did CHK
[12:18] {dino} i2r, exactly, a scalp is a scalp
[12:18] {i2romantis} yep
[12:23] {i2romantis} funny, if i followed the strategy for raising stops (which I did in my mind once i sold), i'd be selling it at .83, another +.2 with no risk, so that's another learning, not trying to jump ship when already in profit zone
[12:24] {i2romantis} but a great thing about scalping is that another trade is pretty much around the corner :)
[12:25] {Threei}  partialling out is the answer for this kind of situations, i2r
[12:25] {dino} i2, good job
[12:25] {dino} always a hundred trades out there.
[12:25] {dino} thats why i trail tight w/stops, expecially when in the $
[12:26] {i2romantis} ok
[12:26] {dino} thin atm machine
[12:26] {dino} think
[12:26] {Threei}  HIG revisited .50 once again
[12:27] {Threei}  DRYS broke, and makes new highs slowly
[12:27] {magoo} must confess took .24 DRYS
[12:28] {elepet} passed .30. now what?
[12:28] {magoo} prob disappoint
[12:28] {magoo} time for RIMM to catch up
[12:29] {magoo} ketchup??
[12:29] {Threei}  it's already above 1;1
[12:30] {Threei}  anyone took HIG this time?
[12:31] {hawkfan4} not me, just watching for now
[12:37] {Threei}  all I see is microscalps
[12:37] {Threei}  7 cents here, 12 cents there
[12:38] {Threei}  market is consolidating for another leg up, and most likely that's what is going to happen
[12:38] {nemo} are you talking today Vad?

[12:56] {nemo} HIG hiccupping
[12:56] {Threei}  HIG became a regular bouncer off each selloff

[13:35] {Threei}  here is my excuse!
06[13:35] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large roll of cash
[13:36] {dino} i should shovel more often, moves markets up
[13:36] {magoo} hang onnnnnnnnn....i gotta pee .......mkts gonna go BALLISTIC
[13:37] {hawkfan4} LOL
[13:37] {nemo} that you have to go to the bathroom is sufficient
[13:38] {Threei}  I am overwhelemed by the details we get to learn here
[13:38] {i2romantis} lol
[13:38] {nemo} I suppose it could get worse
[13:38] {i2romantis} Dino, you can come shovel some more over here
[13:39] {Threei}  yes nemo but that doesn't matter much - aftre certain level you just go numb
[13:39] {Threei}  kind of that question, you know... C and F are the same at -40,
[13:39] {nemo} that's the challenge to go where you break the numbness
[13:39] {Threei}  how to calculate below that?
[13:39] {Threei}  answer is, who cares? It's too fikin cold to do any math
[13:39] {nemo} I was talking sensibilities not temperature
[13:40] {Threei}  no one appreciates the fine metaphore these days... sigh...
[13:40] {nemo} Yeah, I wouldn't be able to take my fingers out of my mittens so I could count
[13:40] {Threei}  right, and counting with limbs you can't go beyond 4
[13:40] {Threei}  which impedes math abilities
[13:41] {nemo} Here's one for you.  Hey Mags, helmet or anteater?
[13:41] {dino} no thx i2r
[13:42] {Threei}  just as we started picking up worthy plays, Fed time approaches
[13:42] {Threei}  oh i2r, you are in Quebec, right?
[13:42] {Threei}  TV said it's brutal today
[13:45] {Threei}  gen dcc pls
[13:45] {Threei}  **consensus expectation is for the rate to remain at 0.25%.
[13:45] {Threei}  **Expectations on today's FOMC statement vary widely, from no change to speculation the Fed could make specific announcements about new actions ranging from buying Treasury securities to adopting explicit inflation targeting. Given the substantial rate cut and additions to the December statement, however, the FOMC may hold off on any major changes in its statement today as it continues to discuss and review alternative actions and awaits the follow through and impacts of the government's TARP and stimulus packages.
[13:47] {cosmo} .50% cut?
[13:47] {magoo} restroom WORX
[13:47] {Threei}  into negative territory?
[13:48] {cosmo} yes....negative

[13:50] {i2romantis} freezing here, as usual
[13:50] {hawkfan4} out rest AKS .37
[13:53] {Threei}  +7 here, sun, warmth...
[13:54] {Threei}  market is p;ulling back befoe announcement
[13:55] {Threei}  if HIG's history today is any indicator, should drop to .70 or so before trying bounce
[13:59] {Threei}  - speaking at a TARP oversight meeting
[14:04] {dino} rebel yell
[14:05] {Threei}  - Notes that it is a false belief that low rates are ineffective.
[14:05] {Threei}  - stresses these comments are his own opinion and not those of the ECB
[14:05] {Threei}  why is he speaking on behalf of ECB then?
[14:06] {Threei}  it should read: private citizen Orphanides says...
[14:11] {Threei}  Court: cheerleader can't sue a teammate who didn't catch her
[14:12] {Threei}  between that and inability to sue Madoff for lost faith in humanity, there goes my dream to make millions in court
[14:14] {Threei}  FOMC time
[14:15] {Threei}  FOMC HOLD RATE AT 0.25%;
[14:15] {Threei}  {SPY SHY TLT EUR/USD USD/JPY G

[14:16] {Threei}  here comes HIG
[14:16] {Threei}  prepare half lot
[14:16] {Threei}  - Reiterates inflation could persit below desirable rates
[14:16] {Threei}  - Vote was 8-1 (Lacker Dissented, preferring to purchase US treasuries)
[14:17] {Threei}  - May see gradual recovery in the economy later in 2009, some conditions in financial markets have improved
[14:17] {Threei}  - Discount rate remains unchanged at 0.50%
[14:18] {i2romantis} +.12 in 30 seconds, what a great catch on EGLE, would be nice to have these kinds more often
