Jul 13 2010

Catch of the day is interesting by the way we entered it, not very common for us: conservative entry (see http://blog.realitytrader.com/2007/07/how-aggressive-are-you.html for explanation). As resistance at $36 got broken, we waited out the initial spike (or simply missed the entry), then bought on the return to the former resistance which became new support

Session Time: Tue Jul 13 00:00:00 2010
[07:50] {hawk} hmm, logging in to mibbit by typing good morning didn't work
[08:22] {Threei}  weird
[08:22] {Threei}  let me try
[08:22] {Threei}  hmmm... no
[08:23] {Threei}  and they say politeness open doors...
[08:24] {hawk} i know, i just don't understand :)
[08:24] {Threei}  bitter disappointment...
[08:24] {nemo} where is this coming from
[08:24] {Threei}  life, it seems, is so unfair
[08:25] {nemo} wow...what an insight
[08:25] {Threei}  very unexxpected
[08:27] {Threei}  Preview: May Trade Balance expected out at 08:30ET (12:30 GMT)

[08:28] {Threei}  - Index at 1,790
[08:28] {Threei}  ***Note: Reading is longest consecutive deline in almost 9 years
[08:28] {Threei}  VIVUS, Inc FDA Staff: Qnexa data shows that the obesity drug sucessfully reduced body weight, drug showed "expected improvements" in blood pressure, blood fats and blood sugars
[08:28] {Threei}  - Both phentermine and topiramate have been approved as single ingredient products in the United States for more than 10 years. However, little is known about the postmarket safety profile when phentermine and topiramate are used concurrently in an overweight or obese population. Given two-third of adults are either overweight or obese, Qnexa could have widespread use, and the potential for safety issues cannot be dismissed.
[08:29] {Threei}  - This review identified important safety concerns for Qnexa (also described in the phentermine and topiramate labelings) that include congenital malformations, eye disorders, neuropsychiatric events, and cardiovascular events (including death). The intended population (obese or overweight) is susceptible to comorbidities such as cardiovascular death that may be exacerbated by the dose-related sympathomimetic effects of the phentermine component of Qnexa
[08:29] {hawk} thx

[15:50] {Threei}  - Note: This would completely disarm the plaintiff's argument that there is a throttle mechanism issue that causes the cars to surge into uncontrolled acceleration
[15:55] {Threei}  as usually, big gap up day is fairly useless for me
