[10:16] {Threei}  looks like short into bounce, FCX
[10:16] {nemo} no, it bounced to quick, I wanted 25 didn't even get my finger on the button
[10:16] {Threei}  hard to find trigger
[10:17] {nemo} .25
[10:17] {nemo} look how tight the range is this morning
[10:17] {nemo} .60 frickin cents on the spy
[10:17] {nemo} maybe .70
[10:18] {nemo} oh am I bummin' about fcx
[10:18] {jfjf64} ouch
06[10:18] * nemo where did I put that vaseline
[10:19] {jfjf64} lvs  3i
[10:19] {Threei}  volume dried up on it jf
[10:19] {jfjf64} .35 break
[10:20] {Threei}  look how it narrowed
[10:20] {jfjf64} yup
[10:20] {Threei}  makes things very uncertain
[10:20] {Les} driven up by 50ma
[10:20] {Les} but b/o or b/d?
[10:20] {shorty} thanks Threei...I was thinking the same thing jf
[10:20] {i2romantis} Let me explain something with my thinking :): it dried up because it wants to desperately go down all the way like a brick!
[10:21] {Threei}  I have one problem with that thinking, i2r
[10:21] {Threei}  that prblem is thinking itself
[10:21] {jfjf64} when  ya  say  narrow  we  lookin vol  bars
[10:22] {Threei}  if I specify that I am talking about volume
[10:22] {Threei}  if no qualifier, than it's a price that is in discussion, default
[10:22] {jfjf64} ty
[10:23] {magoo} any read RIMM vad?
[10:24] {jfjf64} gettin  thick
[10:24] {jfjf64} vol
[10:24] {Threei}  .20 break was valid setup on RIMM... but market was not really inspiring for breaks
[10:24] {nemo} rimm just above 200 and at close, capitualtion volume, watch for short mags
[10:24] {Threei}  let's see maybe we get pullback,
[10:24] {Threei}  broef dive under .20
[10:24] {Threei}  brief
[10:25] {Threei}  and immediate bounce
[10:25] {nemo} .38 is 200 ma
[10:27] {jfjf64} 20 recross
[10:27] {Threei}  scalp only if you go for it
[10:28] {Threei}  market looks very shaky
[10:29] {Les} if it doesn't break .30, how about a .20 breakdown? 50ma now poses resistance
[10:29] {Les} market may bounce here though
[10:31] {nemo} spy might be looking to close the gap
[10:32] {ese} got anything in mind if it bounces les.......i can't find anything today
[10:33] {Les} don't be asking me ese. I'm sticking to Vad during this quiet period and getting punished for almost everything else
[10:33] {Les} everything else I try
[10:34] {Les} waiting for September and some traders to return....
[10:36] {Les} good training in sitting on my hands though
[10:36] {nemo} Wow...les...I'm deferring on that one
[10:37] {Les} you better
[10:37] {nemo} hehehehe
[10:37] {hawk} lol
[10:37] {i2romantis} there's a reason I love LVS
[10:39] {Threei}  you are a fambler at heart?
[10:39] {ese} well ........ok then..........i'll just go it alone
[10:39] {Threei}  gambler
[10:39] {i2romantis} well, short term trader
[10:39] {i2romantis} looking at daily moves
[10:39] {Threei}  I know... reference to what LVS is :)
[10:40] {i2romantis} but if gambler applies to LVS, then yes :)
[10:40] {nemo} fcx short break of .95 ?
[10:40] {Threei}  it's our favorite player for a few months already
[10:40] {Threei}  no day foes by without LVS
[10:40] {nemo} stop getting a tad stretched
[10:40] {Threei}  yeah
[10:42] {Les} cat read vad
[10:43] {nemo} in rig .61 stop .50
[10:43] {Les} this .70 support. any way we can play it?
[10:43] {Threei}  mess of a chart
[10:44] {i2romantis} Vad, no matter what kind of trading i do now, one thing I learned and painfully so, is that my stops are like a religion. And feeling good about stops, even if they are on the negative side, is a comforting thing even with this "gut-feel" moves
[10:44] {larisa} vad, found keyboard for you
[10:44] {larisa}
[10:44] {larisa} metal engraving, will not wear off
[10:44] {Threei}  good to gear i2r...
[10:44] {Threei}  Seykota I think said something like:
[10:45] {Threei}  keep your stops, and maybe you have a chance :)
[10:45] {nemo} 1/2 out .71
[10:45] {nemo} stop b/e
[10:45] {Threei}  too small Larisa
[10:45] {Threei}  I need full size

[10:46] {nemo} scalps are us 
[10:46] {Les} seems to be working for u nemo
[10:46] {Threei}  Vandal I am
[10:46] {nemo} I like Berskerkas myself
[10:46] {nemo} frig, rinsed on the stop
[10:47] {Threei}  I also like the fact that Trackball
[10:47] {Threei}  Impact resistant design
[10:47] {Threei}  I like impact trackballs when I meet them
[10:47] {nemo} oh, you can toss it through the drywall and it still works
[10:47] {Threei}  like to impact
[10:49] {hawk} X interesting consolodation
[10:50] {Threei}  CSCO Halted: Circuit breaker (23.38, -0.02, -0.09%)
[10:50] {nemo} stop rinse on rig, bummer
[10:52] {Les} still scratching my head over this circuit breaker crap
[10:52] {Les} CSCO looks like normal trading to me
[10:54] {ese} me too
[10:55] {Les} what happens when its really time for us to make money
[10:56] {Les} the market is crapping itself
[10:56] {Les} do we get screwed out of our trades?
[10:56] {Threei}  who takes your trade from you?
[10:56] {nemo} bitch slap time
[10:57] {Les} who decides who gets what?
[10:57] {Threei}  ??
[10:57] {Les} if the trade is broken...
[10:57] {Threei}  whatcha talking about?
[10:57] {Threei}  who breaks trades?
[10:57] {nemo} You decide to take the trade Les-own it
[10:57] {Threei}  it's just a halt
[10:58] {Threei}  no one breaks anything
[10:58] {Les} so we can be caught in halts in future
[10:59] {Les} but broken trades are for extreme events only?
[10:59] {nemo} well, if you get a ridiculous run, keep it in mind and get out
[10:59] {Threei}  yes
[10:59] {Les} then again vad would you ever participate in a waterfall event?
[10:59] {Les} or do you sit it out?
[11:00] {nemo} or geyser, as the case may be
[11:00] {Les} geyser is upwards event is it?
[11:00] {Threei}  this is too generic question
[11:00] {Threei}  watefalls like we had two years ago in the fall, sure
[11:01] {Les} the May 6 event
[11:01] {Threei}  we played them every day and lost maybe couple days during whole fall season
[11:01] {Threei}  may6, no, I would stay away
[11:01] {Les} ok. so no broken days when you were trading fall two years ago?
[11:01] {Threei}  it had all the markings of being absolutely out of norm
[11:01] {Threei}  broken days?
[11:01] {Les} trades
[11:02] {Les} broken trades
[11:02] {Threei}  I don;'t know what you are focusing on this stuff... this is extremely rare events, we had it maybe 3-5 times over last 10 years
[11:02] {Les} really?
[11:02] {Les} oh ok
[11:03] {Les} so May 6 was an exceptional event
[11:03] {ese} L asia 1/2 .14
[11:03] {Threei}  it was widely characterized as "unprecedented"
[11:03] {Threei}  so yeag, yoiu may call it exceptional without too much exaggeration {G}
[11:04] {Les} huh
[11:06] {ese} stop for asia .01
[11:08] {ese} stopped .02 -.12 on a 1/2 lot
[11:08] {ese} so much for the excitement of the day
[11:08] {ese} dino would shun me on that one
[11:08] {Threei} Short Setup: X  44 break half lot
[11:11] {nemo} on the melt, look at that bid
[11:11] {nemo} somebody is trying to put a floor under X
[11:13] {Threei}  for every someone who tries to put a floor, there is another someone who tries to put a ceiling...
[11:13] {Threei}  let them duke it out and take the side of the winner
[11:13] {nemo} how philosophical, absolutely, that's why I said "on the melt" on the short side
[11:14] {Threei}  that was my (rare) attempt at thinking
06[11:14] * Threei takes a bow
[11:14] {nemo} does it hurt?
[11:14] {Threei}  very much
[11:14] {nemo} sorry
[11:14] {Threei}  it's OK... self-inflicted
[11:14] {nemo} well...true
[11:15] {nemo} that bid is too big, worries me
[11:15] {Threei}  don't scratch it, it should be much of worry
[11:15] {Threei}  shouldn't
