[09:28] {nemo} mon popping

[09:29] {ese} thats the term they used for russian sailors who were on submarines wasn't it?
[09:29] {ese} widow maker
[09:29] {Les} .75 break on sqnm?
[09:29] {Threei} I'd prefer pullback, but who knows, hot thing
[09:32] {Threei} pullback is coming
[09:32] {Threei} let's see if we get 7.70 or so
[09:32] {Threei} ideally would be entry near .70 with stop under .60
[09:33] {Threei} keep half lot ready
[09:33] {Threei} will be awfully fast when bottoming
[09:33] {nemo} MAGS!
[09:34] {magoo} HEY
06[09:34] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!" banner
[09:34] {magoo} i needed a break, but im back now

[09:35] {Threei} here comes last leg of pullback
[09:35] {Threei} fast players only
[09:35] {magoo} which one?
[09:35] {Threei} SQNM
[09:35] {nemo} sqnm
[09:35] {magoo} ty
[09:36] {Threei} not yet
[09:36] {Threei} AIG btw
[09:37] {magoo} yea
[09:37] {Threei} keep half lot ready as well
[09:37] {Threei} not ready either, just ruined double bottom setup
[09:37] {Threei} well, SQNM
[09:38] {Threei} .90 break...
[09:38] {Threei} less athusiastic about it
[09:38] {Threei} would still prefer deeper pullback
[09:38] {Threei} but if holding .80 and breaks .90, valid play
[09:39] {Threei} 1:1
[09:39] {_jfjf64} ty
[09:39] {Threei} yw
[09:39] {fernp} ty Vad
[09:39] {Threei} just a scalp
[09:39] {billyc} thanks
[09:39] {Threei} not enough pullback for me to risk for more

[09:40] {Les} aig
[09:40] {magoo} ES:)
[09:40] {Threei} welcome sir - consider it my greeting for you
[09:40] {Threei} crap, missed AIG
[09:40] {magoo} you know i want much more right lol
[09:40] {Threei} but of course
[09:40] {magoo} some things do NOT change
[09:40] {Threei} but let's start slowly
[09:40] {dino} gj
[09:40] {magoo} watching AIG
[09:41] {Threei} was thinking of AIG .30 break, and couldn't decide
[09:41] {_jfjf64} magoo ya bring out best in vad
[09:41] {Threei} lol
[09:41] {Threei} ok, SQNM tries to turn into serious momo
[09:41] {Threei} let's try for entry un pullback under .10
[09:41] {Threei} as close to 8 as possible
[09:42] {Threei} AIG, entry around .35
[09:42] {Threei} half lot!
[09:42] {Threei} don't go xcrazy on size, these moves can be a killer
[09:43] {_jfjf64} ba
[09:44] {Threei} wow... SQNM not letting us in
[09:44] {nemo} aig has support at .45 too
[09:45] {Threei} I seriously hate to chase this kind
[09:45] {nemo} what sqnm?
[09:45] {Threei} they tend to reverse on you just when you give up on wasiting for pullback and hit buy
[09:45] {nemo} then let's find something else
[09:45] {Threei} AUG is getting there
[09:46] {Threei} General Motors Corp Reports Feb US Vehicle Sales +32% v +20%e; to 138K units

[09:46] {Threei} in .33
[09:46] {nemo} oops
[09:48] {Threei} half lot, about 15 cents risk
[09:48] {magoo} in .29
[09:48] {Threei} looks good for try
[09:48] {Threei} if double bottom scenario works, should be fine for .60 at least
[09:48] {dino} rino
[09:49] {Threei} stopped
[09:49] {nemo} if aig loses low look for it to bounce at .10
[09:50] {Threei} I think lower nemo

[12:06] {Threei} - VIX index -2% to just below 19.00
[12:07] {Threei} this phenomenon continues to amaze me
[12:07] {Threei} I don't think I've ever seen this, for such extended time
[12:07] {Threei} for months now, we have volume increasing on red days, drying up on green ones
[12:08] {Threei} yet uptrend is intact
[12:08] {dino} and tight range afternoons
[12:08] {Threei} aftrenoon tight ranges, yes...
[12:08] {Threei} but this is something that is simply to be taken into account,
[12:08] {Threei} incirporated in our strategy
[12:09] {Threei} so we don't overtrade at thiks time of the day
[12:09] {Threei} keep bets light
[12:09] {Threei} that volume pattern though, it's different
[12:09] {Threei} it goes against one of fundamental principles
[12:10] {Threei} which is no big deal if happens once in a blue moon
[12:10] {Threei} but it holds true for months
[12:11] {Threei} even without tracking day by day, look at SPY daily for instance
[12:11] {Threei} general volume-price configuration
[12:11] {Threei} you'll see what I mean
[12:13] {dino} snda sm l .00
[12:13] {Threei} if anyone can come up with any sensible explanation, feel free... cause I sure have none
[12:13] {nemo} wall of worry climb
[12:14] {nemo} market shouldn't be going up, so light buying moves it up
[12:14] {Threei} any bull market does that at the beginning stages
[12:14] {Threei} but this volume pattern is never this sustainable
[12:14] {dino} random dance market
[12:14] {nemo} what was the last depression you lived through?
[12:14] {dino} buy them higher sell them lower
[12:14] {Threei} lol
[12:15] {Threei} why do I need to live through depression to know chart patterns?
[12:15] {nemo} well, go study the chart volume patterns from that time
[12:15] {nemo} last year was "we're all gonna'die"
[12:15] {Threei} and who told you I ever came out of depression meeting you in 2007 caused?
[12:15] {dino} further, i feel as tho the investor is dead. these markets move on traders, days happen in minutes
[12:16] {nemo} nano-trading
[12:16] {nemo} there's a book in there
[12:16] {Threei} you measn you see this volume pattern in depression timnes?
[12:16] {Threei} then we look at different charts, I don't see anything like this
[12:16] {nemo} I don't know...just last year was quite an exception
[12:16] {dino} drop
[12:17] {nemo} fas pullback
[12:17] {Threei} ok, I take severe umbrage in this one:
[12:17] {Threei} [12:15] {nemo} well, go study the chart volume patterns from that time
[12:17] {Threei} you think I didn't, before asking the question?
06[12:17] * Threei slaps nemo around a bit with a large price-volume charts from 1930 to our days
[12:17] {dino} i think you are overthinking it. my gut says no investors just traders
[12:18] {Threei} it's true
[12:18] {Threei} but why is volume reversed?
[12:18] {dino} panic on any drop after '09
[12:18] {nemo} wall of worry
[12:18] {dino} brutal lesson learned, get out
[12:18] {nemo} yep
[12:19] {dino} investors would wait it out, investors are minority
[12:19] {ese} did they even have price charts back then
[12:19] {nemo} yes ese
[12:19] {nemo} all investors are gone...money gone
[12:19] {Threei} yes... they called them plates, for some reason
[12:20] {dino} shoot first on drops ask questions later
[12:20] {Threei} I guess I don't ask my question clearly
[12:20] {Threei} and it's not emopty curiosity
[12:20] {Threei} this is something we need to understand in order to read the direction
[12:21] {Threei} let me try again
[12:21] {Threei} yes, as you say, when fear overcomes greed, volume increases on red days
[12:21] {Threei} that's what such increase indicates:
[12:21] {Threei} more fear,
[12:21] {nemo} economically much fear right now
[12:21] {Threei} greed retreats
[12:22] {Threei} and volume on green days is less.
[12:22] {Threei} That's all normal.
[12:22] {Threei} What isn't normal:
[12:22] {Threei} when this pattern develops, we establish DOWNtrend
06[12:22] * nemo asks: "What is normal?"
[12:22] {Threei} not UPtrend
[12:22] {ese} seed....wha da ya think vad L maybe at .05
[12:22] {Threei} yet, having this volume pattern, we continue uptrend
[12:23] {dino} more fear than greed
[12:23] {nemo} Fear is still very high out there
[12:23] {Threei} ese, it's worth a try, but wether it works or not won't depend on technicals, rather on wheher momo players return
[12:23] {dino} economy in my area sucks, fear everywhere
[12:23] {Threei} yes
[12:24] {Threei} that's what volume idndicates
[12:24] {Threei} more fear
[12:24] {Threei} so why uptrend??
[12:24] {nemo} Lotsa' fear, but where else you gonna' put your money?
[12:24] {dino} so perhaps lower vol on up because no investors(fear), but the ones that are in sell drops fast
[12:25] {dino} right now, the cd's are getting the money but paying nothing (fear again over rides)
[12:25] {nemo} my take dino, lock in profit and begrudgingly buy upward]

[12:26] {dino} sure, back to trader market only, no investors
[12:26] {Threei} what do you mean nobody really selling?
[12:26] {Threei} where does volume on red days coming from then?
[12:26] {Threei} if it all were just short term traders, volume would be roughly equal
[12:26] {nemo} people locking in profit
[12:27] {dino} traders/sellers. investors are gone, most traders are long only types, they sell fast
[12:27] {Threei} OK, I guess my english sucks... you guys don't hear me :)

[12:35] {fernp} ok
[12:35] {gregns} okey dokey
[12:35] {dino} oh man, the meatloaf sandwich is under-rated. should make a meatloaf sub
[12:35] {Threei} if it goes from here, it's just one of those moves that I can't read
[12:36] {fernp} u can read everything :-)
[12:36] {Threei} but suppose it pulls back to .65 or so,
[12:36] {Threei} and return to .70 and breaks it, yes, that I'd see as a valid setup
[12:37] {fernp} yes understand, db scenario
[12:37] {Threei} yes, with higher low
[12:38] {Threei} as it is, it's just a move
[12:38] {dino} here's a thought on your volume question, could it be that some of the stocks that are in the indexes are above average, thus pulling everything else along
[12:38] {Threei} not everything moves in patterns, some moves are just that
[12:38] {Threei} hah
[12:38] {nemo} also have etfs...wonder what affect they're having
[12:38] {nemo} effect
[12:38] {Threei} that's interesting suggestion dino
[12:38] {nemo} influence
[12:38] {Threei} and you know what
[12:39] {Threei} pattern is drastically different for NYSE and NASDAQ
[12:39] {dino} other thing is some have been dropped from index (c, aig, etc)
[12:39] {Threei} that would influence volume now vs volume before they were dropped
[12:39] {Threei} not day by day now
[12:40] {Threei} but your first suggestion is very likely true
[12:40] {Threei} NYSE and NASDAQ represent different sectors,
[12:40] {Threei} and volume on NASDAQ was less impacted by this strange pattern
[12:40] {dino} the meatloaf trigger the thought
[12:40] {nemo} wow
[12:41] {Threei} NYSE with its heavy represenation of financials
[12:41] {Threei} could be

[12:41] {Threei} The Power of Meatloaf Thinking
06[12:41] * nemo slaps Les around a bit with a large lead pipe
[12:41] {dino} good title\
[12:42] {Threei} well, the implication is:
[12:42] {Threei} without breaking things by sectors and possibly even deeper, isolation of certain stocks with unusual heavy trading,
[12:42] {Threei} we can't rely on index volume
[12:43] {Threei} and I am too lazy to do those deep analysis
[12:43] {nemo} interferes with your drinking time
[12:44] {Threei} and with my non-thinking principles
[12:44] {Threei} (I prefer to call inabaility a principle, ya know)
[12:45] {Threei} so there we go: index movement is dicated by price changes, not volume-weighted,
[12:45] {Threei} most stocks move in unison and define index direction,
[12:45] {Threei} but some, where the fear is concentrated the most, have unusual big volume on down days
[12:45] {Threei} skewing the volume pattern.
[12:46] {dino} glad i could be of assistance
[12:46] {Threei} totally

[13:55] {Threei} if I wanted a trade, it would be short X on 58 break when market revreses back down
[13:55] {nemo} x looks like fas
[13:55] {Les} sqnm trying
[13:55] {_jfjf64} does that mean ya shorting
[13:56] {Threei} no colored call - discretionary

[14:05] {nemo} kick me please vad
[14:05] {Threei} hmm?
[14:05] {nemo} do I need to repeat it?
[14:05] {Threei} I don't indulge masohists
[14:05] {Threei} I make them suffer by not indulging
[14:06] {nemo} no..for missing fcx at 77.55 I was looking at it when volume came in, said "nah, that's too obvious."
[14:06] {nemo} mon
[14:06] {nemo} volume coming in break of 72 interesting
[14:09] {Les} Nemo, you once mentioned white numbers on T&S is people trying to get out
[14:09] {Les} nice call on mon by the way
[14:09] {nemo} ty
[14:09] {nemo} can be white numbers are market orders
[14:09] {Les} what does this colour coding on T&S mean?
[14:09] {nemo} market orders
[14:09] {Les} green is buy?
[14:10] {Les} Red is sell?
[14:10] {nemo} green means somebody bought the offer
[14:10] {Les} what is yellow?
[14:10] {nemo} Red means somebody selling sold to the bid
[14:10] {nemo} yellow in your case is likely market orders
[14:10] {dino} ntri stop
[14:10] {larisa} yellow means too much carrot
[14:10] {Les} out MON +.20
[14:10] {Threei} msrket orders?
[14:11] {Threei} they can't be color coded

[14:12] {Les} crap. OSIP broke at same time as MON
[14:13] {Les} http://uploads.mibbit.com/4skNUx.gif
[14:13] {dino} trying to make speculation illegal, crazy times
[14:13] {Les} Vad, can you help me decode this T&S chart please?
[14:14] {Les} yellow price means unchanged
[14:14] {Les} yellow vol. means unchanged
[14:15] {nemo} no it means in between bid and offer...likely market order
[14:15] {Threei} that's what your broker said?
[14:15] {Les} no just guessing
[14:15] {nemo} wtf
[14:15] {Threei} ok, you need their explanation of color agenda
[14:15] {Les} its broker specific is it?
[14:15] {Threei} I've no idea what they label as yellow
[14:15] {nemo} green means somebody bought the stock paying the offer]
[14:15] {Threei} for Laser it's simple
[14:16] {Threei} green - trade at offer price
[14:16] {nemo} red likely means somebody sold the stock for the bid
[14:16] {Threei} red - trade at bid price
[14:16] {Threei} white - inbetween
[14:16] {nemo} yellow is likely market/inbetween
[14:16] {Threei} why market?
[14:16] {Threei} inbetween - probably
[14:16] {Threei} but why it needs to be market?
[14:17] {Les} ok. will try to track it down. thanks anyway
[14:17] {nemo} doesn't need to be, but market orders will usually be the best available price
[14:17] {Threei} so will limit
[14:17] {nemo} good point
[14:17] {Threei} send at the offer, if there is hidden offer lower you'll get it
[14:18] {Threei} make this disctinction:
[14:18] {Threei} there is an order that hits someone else's one,
[14:18] {Threei} this is MARKETABLE order
[14:18] {Threei} don't confuse with market
[14:19] {Threei} marketable order can hit hidden one inbetweem
[14:19] {Threei} now, if you try to put in bid or offer at the current perice or beyond, but not between existing ones,
[14:19] {Threei} it's pyre limit
[14:19] {Threei} pure
[14:19] {Threei} and there will be no improvement
[14:20] {Threei} you'll get a fill only when someone hits you
[14:20] {Threei} what you'll get though with Laser is ECN rebate

[14:27] {nemo} what you say about pulling teeth last week?
[14:28] {Threei} to me, this week feels easier
[14:28] {nemo} it's only Tuesday
[14:28] {Threei} get your good trades early, then sit it out
[14:28] {Threei} wait for something big to happen
[14:28] {nemo} reminds of a woman I dated...spent a year with her one week
[14:28] {Threei} if you get lucky to get news early, fine
[14:29] {Threei} if not, sit and yawn
[14:29] {nemo} great...made me yawn
[14:30] {Threei} last week was tougher for me because period of morning activity was shorter
[14:30] {Threei} if day started with stop or two, it would take whole day to get out of it
[14:30] {Threei} this week so far at least, morning is a little longer
[14:31] {Threei} so there is more time to right things
[14:31] {Les} today was excellent for me
