Fri Oct 01 2010

Lukewarm start of the day with some wins, some stops; then just a few trades quickly turned it into great profitable end of the week. One of them made catch of the day. General feeling of the market trying to rally (not very successfully but enough t push our trade) and RIMM being close to a significant breakout level gave general idea of the trade; finding low risk aggressive entry presented us with 50 cents run with just 10 cents initial stop.

Session Time: Fri Oct 01 00:00:00 2010

[08:23] {davd} .
[08:34] {Threei}  goof point
[08:35] {Les} wasn't me
[08:37] {Threei}  try making one on your own Les... I am sure you can do it
[08:38] {nemo} what were the PCE numbers?
[08:39] {Threei}  *(US) AUG PCE CORE M/M: 0.1% V 0.1%E; Y/Y: 1.4% V 1.4%E; PCE DEFLATOR Y/Y: 1.5% V 1.5%E
[08:39] {Threei}  *(US) AUG PERSONAL INCOME: 0.5% V 0.3%E; PERSONAL SPENDING: 0.4% V 0.3%E
[08:40] {Threei}  - Personal Savings 5.8% v 5.7% m/m (revised from 5.9% prior reading)
[08:40] {Les} goofin off? yeh I'm capable of that :)
[08:40] {nemo} I thought it was your raison detre
[08:40] {Threei}  US) Fed's Dudley: Further Fed action to support the economy is likely; reiterates that Fed will not monitize debt
[08:40] {Threei}  - Current economic situation is "wholly unsatisfactory," inflation is too low and and unemployment is too high for the Fed.
[08:40] {Threei}  - The Fed has the tools it needs to assist the economy. Fed could buy medium or long-term Treasuries and mortgages.
[08:40] {Threei}  - A $500B asset purchase equals a 50-75 bps rate cut.
[08:40] {Threei}  - More explicit rate guidance, including price target comments, may be needed.
[08:41] {Threei}  heh
[08:41] {Threei}  inflation is too low and and unemployment is too high for the Fed.
[08:41] {Threei}  wfor the Fed?
[08:41] {Threei}  what to say about the populace then?
[08:41] {nemo} Fed will not monitize do they call the Fed buying treasuries
[08:42] {Threei}  well, they say "we will sterilize it later"
[08:42] {Threei}  so it's not a permanent debt monetization
[08:42] {nemo} keynesian economics doesn't work without inflation, nor do the banks
[08:42] {nemo} yeah, they'll sterilize it...when?
[08:42] {Threei}  that's a very good question, and tghey have just the answer:
[08:43] {Threei}  when the conditions are right
[08:43] {Threei}  there
[08:43] {nemo} Let them eat cake
[08:44] {Threei}  read this further in text:
[08:44] {Threei}  Plosser and Hoenig are part of the vocal group "reluctant to expand Fed's $2.3T portfolio" while other Fed voters such as Rosengren and Yellen (replaced retiring Donald Kohn) see high unemployment as reason for the Fed to buy more bonds.
[08:45] {Threei}  high unemployment as reason for the Fed to buy more bonds
[08:45] {Threei}  this is something to ponder for decades and fix for centuries
[08:45] {Threei}  good thing world ends in 2012

[12:14] {Threei}  - The broad-based increase in risk on May 6 was evidenced by a number of indicators. Premiums on credit default swaps increased for a number of European sovereign debt securities, including debt from Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Ireland. In addition, the Euro experienced downward pressure in global currency markets.
[12:14] {Threei}  - In the course of the day, the S&P 500 volatility index (VIX), a measure of the expected volatility of the S&P 500 Index, increased by 31.7 percent, which was the fourth largest single-day increase in VIX. Prices on gold futures rose 2.5%, while yields of ten-year Treasuries fell nearly 5% as investors engaged in a flight to quality.

06[13:48] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large bottle of memory pills
[13:52] {Threei}  something is so off about today, can't quite put my finger on it but it's in the air
[13:54] {dino} feels like summer friday
[13:54] {Threei}  something else..
[13:55] {Threei}  in the summer it's just complacency
[13:55] {Threei}  today, there is a distinctive smell of fear in the air
[13:55] {dino} cml
[13:57] {patience} bought HGD today (gold bear etf).  I'm a strong gold bull but taking a shot at next few weeks being down weeks.   very unscientific   :)  
[13:58] {dino} gut i call it
[13:59] {davd} check to see if hgd actually works, i.e. chart it vs, gld over 3 months and see that it does move inverse.
[13:59] {patience} yup
[14:00] {patience} up until recently i have been swing trading, but have found i'm switching back to scalping
[14:00] {patience} refreshing my techniques for scalping options
[14:00] {patience} it's been awhile
[14:00] {dino} you'll do fine
[14:00] {dino} fwiw i'm in scalp mode too
[14:01] {patience} feel like Rocky, training for the big fight    :)

[14:29] {magoo} question is do mkts sell off into bell?
[14:29] {Threei}  that's THE question
[14:29] {Threei}  and my gut says, no
[14:29] {Threei}  up we go, says gut
[14:29] {magoo} part 2: and if so is vad smart enough to recognize and profit from it
[14:30] {RonS} rimm break of 50.00 ought to trigger some short covering...
[14:30] {magoo} part 3: is magoo smart enough to listen to man he pays for advice?
[14:31] {davd} in rimm .72
[14:32] {magoo} ive found it doesnt usually pay to jump vads triggers davd
[14:33] {RonS} ...but he did not jump, it did trigger earlier mags...
[14:34] {magoo} ah, sorry
[14:34] {Threei}  but mags was too busy thinking aof another sniping remark to notice that {G}
[14:34] {magoo} u got that correct:)
[14:34] {davd} thanks - i kept quiet because i didn't know.  i waited for it to go below .75 and watched that it held above .65 and then bought when i thought
[14:35] {magoo} that would be best left unsaid davd HE HE
[14:37] {Threei}  1:1
[14:37] {Threei}  half out or scalp
[14:37] {Threei}  your choice
[14:39] {Threei}  if partialling, stop for the balance to under b/e
[14:39] {Threei}  and offer 1/4 more around .93 - .95
[14:39] {davd} out rim 1/2 lot .84
[14:40] {davd} dino cgnx up on hi volume
[14:41] {dino} see it
[14:44] {Threei}  formally you can trail RIMM stop to .78 now... although I am not sure it's worth it

[14:45] {dino} who's book
[14:46] {Threei}  just book
[14:46] {Threei}  generic

[14:46] {Threei}  "buy him a book?"
[14:46] {Threei}  "no, he already has a book"

[14:49] {Threei}  if breaks .95 from here, stop trailed to .85
[14:54] {davd} cgnx stop to .16
[14:56] {davd} cgnx stopped .16
[14:56] {Threei}  .95 broken, .85 held
[14:56] {Threei}  stpp trailed to .84
06[14:58] * Threei slaps magoo around a bit with a large banner asking "HAVE YOU FOLLOWED THE WINNING TRADE CALLED FOR YA??"
[14:58] {dino} jumpy cgnx

[14:59] {Threei}  look at daily
[14:59] {Threei}  huge resistance here
[14:59] {Threei}  now you have a choice:
[14:59] {Threei}  take 1:3 if it breaks, or just trail
[14:59] {Threei}  and try to maximize it
[15:00] {RonS} yep, that's why i thought a break would be meaningful...
[15:00] {dino} hpq to .54
[15:01] {Threei}  take down that wall RIMM

[15:45] {RonS} cme response to flash report:
[15:45] {RonS}  The report references a series of bona fide hedging transactions, totaling 75,000 contracts, entered into by an institutional asset manager to hedge a portion of the risk in its $75 billion investment portfolio in response to global economic events and the fundamentally deteriorating market conditions that day.  The 75,000 contracts represented 1.3% of the t
[15:45] {RonS} of the total E-Mini volume of 5.7 million contracts on May 6 and less than 9% of the volume during the time period in which the orders were executed.  The prevailing market sentiment was evident well
[15:46] {RonS} other words they are calling bullshit...
