Mar 03 2010

Narrow range day again, so trades were few and far between, but still - 4 trades, 3 wins, single stop was just 8 cents. The best trade was early WFC long

Session Time: Wed Mar 03 00:00:00 2010
[07:52] {Threei} (GR) Greece formally announces austerity measures of 4.8B (2% of GDP) - draft bill
[07:52] {Threei} - To increase VAT tax by 2% to 21%; will add 1.2B in revenues
[07:52] {Threei} - To raise 1B from a one-time company tax by end of 2010
[07:52] {Threei} - To raise duty on alcohol by 20%
[07:52] {Threei} - To cut public sectort sallary supplements by 12% v 10% prior
[07:52] {Threei} - To cut public sector bonus during three holiday periods (Christmas, easter and summer)
[07:52] {Threei} - To impose luxury tax on cars, yachts, etc
[07:52] {Threei} - To raise excise on fuel by 0.03-0.08/liter
[07:52] {Threei} - To freeze increases for pensions in 2010 (no cuts either)
[07:52] {Threei} - Gov't spokesperson: To submit new tax law to parliament in the near future
[08:00] {strider} 8 measures there. Only 3 of them are reductions in spending. The other 5 are tax increases. And they call this an austerity package.
[08:00] {Threei} road down is tough...
[08:00] {Threei} MDVN, mama mia
[08:00] {Threei} MDVN Phase III studies of Dimebon (latrepirdine) alzheimers program missed co-primary and secondary endpoints
[08:02] {strider} CC at 8:30
[08:02] {Threei} kind of things that remind me why I am not an inwestor
[08:03] {strider} pharmas sure aren't the place to try to invest.
[08:04] {strider} MDVN trading was halted awhile at 7:30. What good does that do?
[08:04] {Threei} .36 - .80 scalp
[08:04] {strider} It still went to the crapper.
[08:05] {Threei} well... in their mind, halt before news is disseminated makes sure everyone gets news at the same time
[08:05] {strider} I guess that could happen.
[08:05] {Threei} the chain from FDA announce,ent to news wire can have leaks
[08:06] {strider} No, vad, say it isn't true.
[08:06] {Threei} :)
[08:06] {strider} you mean some are more equal than others?
[08:08] {Threei} horrible thought isn't it
[08:12] {Threei} GR) Reportedly Germany will not offer aid to Greece during Merkel's meeting on Friday, March 5 2010
[08:12] {Threei} - Meeting will only discuss current state of events
[08:12] {Threei} - Greece must implement austerity plans; confident that plan will stabilze the EUR.
[08:16] {Threei} US) FEB ADP EMPLOYMENT CHANGE: -20K V -20KE
[08:16] {Threei} - Prior revised from -22K to -60K
[08:42] {Threei} (US) Fed's Fisher: USD to remain reserve currency for some period of time; investor interest in USD forces discipline -Q&A at CFR
[08:42] {Threei} - Echoes that Fed should prevent asset bubbles
[08:42] {Threei} - Fed in the early 2000's held rates too low for too long
[08:42] {Threei} - Exit policy will be needed when monetary supply velocity increases (We note that that velocity of money has been falling since the end of 2005)
[08:42] {nemo} so we'll be the "reserve" toilet paper
[08:54] {Threei} (EU) Reportedly EU may hold Phase 3 Co2 auctions as early as 2011 (related CARBX )
[08:54] {Threei} why, just do it now
[08:54] {Threei} when you are on suicide mission, why not do it quickly

[09:16] {Threei} US) Fed's Rosengren: There is a risk current low rates could fuel future bubbles
[09:16] {Threei} - Fed needs broad oversight to monitor risk

[11:08] {Les} qid b/d?
[11:08] {Threei} thatwould be a bet on market breakout
[11:10] {Threei} we are at the time of the day when breakouts cease to work for months already
[11:10] {Les} q pivot support .78. if it bounces off that and pushes upwards - yeh
[11:10] {Threei} I prefer to go with trend until it changes
[11:10] {Threei} and trend is - no, no breakout plays at this time of the day
[11:10] {Threei} (GR) Moody's: Austerity measures in Greece bring credibility to fiscal changes
[11:10] {Threei} ** Note that Greece's sovereign debt carries an A2 rating at Moodys, two notches above the equivalent ratings at Fitch and S&P (BBB+). If Moody's were to recalibrate its rating in line with its peers it would render Greece's sovereign debt ineligible for ECB repo operations when collateral criteria reverts to the normal minimum thresholds (A3/A- or above) at the end of 2010
[11:11] {dino} all is well in the world again
[11:11] {Threei} so, moody assigns ratings in order to allow or ban certain operations - not depending on real state of affairs?
[11:12] {Threei} until reality becomes glaringly obvious

[11:16] {Threei} let it consolidate for a while, then break .20
[11:17] {dino} visn would like to see 4.80s hit for bounce

[12:13] {Threei} coud be, it's just another manifestation of these strange volume phenomena
[12:13] {Threei} we mostly talked about volume discrepancy between red and green days yesterday
[12:14] {Threei} such huge enormity in volume change direction between NYSE and NASDAQ is something else
[12:15] {Threei} NYSE volume about 18% below its three-month average, NASDAQ volume about 27% above its three-month avera
[12:15] {dino} 'i feel it is the same reason, financials vs tech heavy
[12:15] {Threei} probably
[12:15] {Threei} must be connected

[13:57] {Threei} hmm
[13:57] {larisa} if you diet you loose weight they mean?
[13:57] {Threei} 1.50 is interesting zone to break on daily
[13:57] {dino} and if you eat less you do too
[13:57] {Threei} - Clinical Data Presented Today at the American Heart Association Meeting by Stanford Researchers Show Statistically Significant Improvements in Weight Loss and Metabolic Parameters when Diets are Compatible with an Individual's Genotype
[13:57] {Threei} - Individuals on genotype-appropriate diets lost 5.3 percent of body weight compared to individuals on diets not matched to their genotype, who experienced only 2.3 percent weight loss (p=0.005);
[13:57] {Threei} The weight loss differences were even stronger when considering the individuals who were trying to follow the lowest carbohydrate (Atkins) and the lowest fat (Ornish) diets: 6.8% weight loss for those whose genotype matched the diet they were following vs. 1.4% for those not matched to their genotype (p=0.03);
[13:57] {Threei} The statistical significance of the findings increased when taking into account the actual diet habits reported by study participants (rather than just the specific diet they were asked to follow);
[13:57] {Threei} Improvements in clinical measures related to weight loss (e.g., blood triglyceride levels) paralleled the weight loss differences
[13:57] {larisa} why did I ask :)
