[08:43] {Threei} Reminder: Today's Bernanke House hearing has been delayed but his testimony will still be released from embargo at 10:00ET
[08:43] {Threei} - The topic of the House hearing is "Unwinding Emergency Federal Reserve Liquidity Programs and Implications for Economic Recovery."
[08:43] {Threei} - The hearing has been postponed due to the snow storm on the east coast.
[08:43] {Threei} **In some of his most recent commentary from last month, Bernanke noted:
[08:43] {Threei} - Fed is confident it can control monetary and credit growth; Fed officials understand that the balance sheet needs to be normalized; Raising rates on reserves is one way to control balance sheet.
[08:43] {Threei} - Policy decisions must be forward looking; Policy decisions in early 2000 do not seem to be inappropriate; Not worried about confidence in US financial system.
[08:43] {Threei} - Economy only now beginning to recover from deep recession; Monetary policy may not be appropriate for dealing with bubbles; Appropriate response for dealing with housing bubbles is regulatory rather than monetary; Rate hikes are not the best tool to burst asset bubbles.
[08:43] {Threei} - Dollar remains the dominant reserve currency.
[08:43] {Threei} - If the regulatory system is not reformed to deal with future bubbles or if it is not able to keep risks in check, we must remain open to using monetary policy as a supplementary tool for addressing those risks.

[12:12] {Les} :P
[12:13] {fernp} HAL wotrh a try, Vad?
[12:14] {Threei} only if maret spikes sharply
[12:14] {fernp} .ok
[12:17] {ese} have any of you ever subscibed to any of the squawk boxes of the s&p or nyse to get a sense of buying and selling pressure coming into the mrkt
[12:18] {dino} not i
[12:18] {Threei} horribly annoying ese
[12:18] {ese} me neither
[12:19] {ese} ahhhhhhh in what sense
[12:19] {Threei} irritasting noise
[12:19] {Threei} irritating
[12:20] {ese} thats all it is ........just noise......can't hear bids or sells of any kind?
[12:20] {Threei} the idea is, you are supposed to get a feeling of emotions by the decibel level
[12:20] {Threei} no
[12:20] {ese} that seems useless
[12:20] {Threei} well, not for sellers pf thast service
[12:20] {Threei} very useful for them
[12:21] {ese} indeed
[12:21] {ese} i'm liken the look of the stec 15 chart
[12:22] {ese} 15 min
[12:22] {ese} IBM was thinking about buying this company at one time wern't they
[12:23] {Threei} if SPY breaks 107, let's consider AMSC long
[12:23] {ese} i should have know brcm would do something like it's now doing
[12:23] {Threei} ideally I'd prefer pullback to about .60
[12:23] {fernp} out HAL 1:2
[12:24] {fernp} ty Vad
[12:24] {Threei} breakout is less desirable
[12:24] {Threei} welcome sir
[12:24] {ese} daaaaaaaaa and i took a .05 loss
[12:25] {Threei} on what eseZ?
[12:25] {ese} brcm
[12:26] {ese} in.74 out .69 last trade
[12:26] {Threei} oh
[12:26] {Threei} I don't know why you bothered with it at the moment
[12:26] {Threei} market wass dead
[12:27] {Threei} BRCM is not usually moving without market
[12:27] {ese} i just get krazzzy you know......say that with italian accent
[12:28] {Threei} I can't... my accent is the only one I have
[12:28] {ese} and it's cool too!!
[12:28] {ese} gives me that real worldly sense when i'm talkin to you
[12:29] {Threei} (EU) Italian PM Berlusconi: Not expecting Germany to veto ECB's Draghi as a replacement for the current ECB chief Trichet
[12:29] {Threei} - Note: Reports circulated that Germany's Weber was in contention for the spot as head of the ECB
[12:29] {Threei} (GR) Greek PM Papandreou: Insists that Greece never requested any aid, reiterates will do what is necessary to deal with crisis (related EUR/USD SOVRX BUNDS NBG )
[12:29] {Threei} I have to say, I dpon't think I've ever seen market being this sensitive to what's happening in Europe
[12:30] {Threei} asian crisis, russian crisis, south america crisis... it's all we've seen
[12:30] {ese} thats a good point
[12:30] {Threei} Europe - first on my memory
[12:30] {ese} talking about real world.....i'm 2 real world cents dn in stec
[12:31] {Threei} AMSC never gave us pullback
[12:31] {Threei} not chasing it anywasy
[12:31] {Threei} this stock can punish chasing more cruelly than Spanish inquisitor punishes heretics
[12:31] {larisa} todasy, anywasy.. vad:)
[12:32] {Threei} they really need to move keys further apart Larisa
[12:32] {Threei} or I need to stop typing with my elbows

[12:37] {Les} NTGR returning to 24
[12:45] {Threei} ok guys
[12:45] {Threei} let's decide on the direction
[12:45] {Threei} IMO, we are reversing for the moment
[12:45] {Threei} downtrend is likely for the next little while
[12:46] {Threei} but today everything is discretionary, so if you don't feel it's right, simply stay away
[12:46] {Threei} next couple aslerts will be on a short side
[12:47] {Threei} Short Setup: RIMM .75 break half lot
[12:48] {Threei} high of this bounce will define the stop level, and invalidation is .90 for now
[12:48] {Threei} ok, if you are very stingy, keep .85 break as stop level
[12:50] {strider} not much of a bounce
[12:51] {Threei} I still prefer .90
[12:51] {Threei} and would start trailing it after loss of .70
[12:51] {strider} in .74
[12:54] {Threei} (GR) Reportedly EU will work on further details concerning support for Greece on Monday - unconfirmed report
[12:55] {Les} Are there federal communication laws that restrict us from creating our own rumour business?
[12:56] {Threei} I'd suggest to exploit existing ones by delegating nemo in the Rumor Bunker as our spy
[12:56] {Threei} more cost effective
[12:56] {Les} rumor bunker?
[12:57] {Threei} yes.. one under the Gossip Plaza in Hearsay City
[12:57] {Threei} where all this stuff is being produced
[12:59] {Les} ntgr
[13:00] {Threei} RIMM no worky
[13:00] {Threei} first stop for today
[13:00] {fernp} .stopped RIMM
[13:01] {strider} my 2nd
[13:02] {strider} ihr
[13:03] {Threei} reversal notion is wrong so far
[13:03] {Threei} backing away
[13:06] {Les} averaging in ntgr .90
[13:10] {Threei} short?
[13:10] {fernp} SCO, VAd?
[13:11] {Threei} hmm
[13:11] {Threei} what do you see in there??
[13:12] {fernp} .50 break short
[13:12] {fernp} stop above .60
[13:12] {Threei} 50/50 play
[13:12] {Threei} can work, can fail, roll a dice
[13:12] {fernp} already in
[13:12] {nemo} market going higher
[13:13] {fernp} out here
[13:13] {Threei} good roll then
[13:13] {fernp} :-)
[13:14] {fernp} easier for me to see these plays than your RIMM or X calls :-)
[13:16] {Threei} very slow day
[13:16] {Threei} no rythm
[13:19] {ese} am outta here all see ya tomorrow
[13:20] {Threei} take care ese

[13:55] {Threei} - note: MNTA is scheduled to report earnings tomorrow before the US open.
[13:55] {Threei} Short Setup: FITB .80 break if stays below .85
[13:56] {Threei} there... 5 cents risk, it doesn't get any safer that that
