[14:43] {strider} Are your overnights usu. backed up by news?
[14:43] {Threei} not necessary
[14:44] {Threei} but there is no setup on daily either, just a long green candle
[14:44] {Threei} and volume spike
[14:44] {Threei} can be euphoria just as well
[14:44] {strider} True. and strung out on the 3rd day of climb.
[14:46] {strider} Probably too late.

[15:04] {Threei} do we agree?
[15:04] {larisa} yes, but i doubt it will break
[15:05] {Threei} that's not a concern really... no break, no trade
[15:06] {larisa} why, it can be a short off 53 if no trend break :)
[15:06] {larisa} oops

[11:17] {Threei} this is beyond weird
[11:18] {Threei} if I am China, and I want to buy IMF gold, why on Earth would I want to announce that?
[11:18] {Threei} to trigger frontrunning and get higher price?
[11:19] {ese} someone explain that to not gold follower so what are the implications
[11:19] {Threei} and isn't the source bizarre:
[11:19] {Threei} English language Russian news website citing Russia's Interfax as stating China
[11:20] {Threei} - Note: On 2/23 the China gold association commented that China would not purchase IMF gold as it may upset the markets; would continue purchasing gold mines internationally in efforts to grow gold reserves

Feb 24 2010

Nice day with one stop and quite a few wins. Started with SQNM long, continued with bigger win on AIG long, then short etc... second half of the day was as it becomes customary - frozen solid.

Session Time: Wed Feb 24 00:00:00 2010

[08:28] {Threei} or there was some news development?
[08:29] {Threei} with latest from Toyota I can't believe it's not -5

[08:43] {Threei} yikes
[08:44] {Threei} you guys really take it on the chin this winter
[08:44] {dino} most winters
[08:45] {Threei} guess the source of the quote:
[08:45] {Threei} Fortune turned against us and brought confusion to all we did. Greed destroyed honor, honesty and every other virtue, and taught men to be arrogant and cruel, to neglect the gods. Ambition made men false. Rome changed: A government which had once surpassed all others in justice and excellence now became cruel and unbearable.
[08:46] {Les} ouch dino, some sun and 52F here!
[08:46] {Les} cicero Vad?
[08:46] {Threei} fall of the constitutional Roman Republic and the rise of Julius Caesar, historian Sallust at the time
[08:46] {Les} good morning :)
[08:46] {Threei} les :)

[08:59] {Les} yeh I'm waiting to see what TM does at opening
[08:59] {Les} mindful of Bill's suggestion that if FCX goes, so do the rest of the miners
[09:00] {Les} sub 15$ stocks would be fun to short
[09:00] {Threei} after admitting that they essentially are not even sure of the reasion for acceleration, thus fix may not fix anything, you'd expect it to be trading at 65 by now

[11:30] {Threei} - The Commission also determined that Crocs, Inc. (Crocs) had not satisfied the technical prong of the industry requirement under section 337 for the 789 patent. Because the Commission erred in finding that the prior art taught all of the claimed elements of the 858 patent and incorrectly weighed the secondary considerations, this court reverses the Commissions finding that the 858 patent would have been obvious. Because the Commission also erred in claim construction for the 789 patent, in applying the ordinary observer test for infringement, and in applying the technical prong of the section 337 domestic industry requirement, this court reverses the Commissions determination on the 789 patent.
