Oct 15 2010

Nice strong morning with 100% performance, followed by a sleepy afternoon. No interesting charts to show, but do read a discussion of yesterday's GOOG pre-earnings long call, 8:52 - 9:01.

Session Time: Fri Oct 15 00:00:00 2010
[08:03] {magoo} mornkjikjhgkjgEgging
[08:09] {magoo} its just the GOOG show on all channels all the time
[08:24] {magoo} nemo wakes up, enters room, takes a look, and quits lol
[08:24] {Threei}  can you blame him?
[08:24] {Threei}  I'd do the same if I hgad a choice
[08:26] {Threei}  so mags
[08:26] {Threei}  how many points you grabbed of GOOG meteoric rise?
[08:27] {magoo} u will either cry with joy or cry with disappointment if i tell u
[08:27] {magoo} so u got tissues handy?
[08:28] {Threei}  just a sec
[08:28] {Threei}  ok, got it
[08:28] {Threei}  go ahead
[08:28] {strider} let the healing begin.
[08:28] {magoo} i had very good day trading and decided worked to hard to gamble i watched but took ZERO
[08:29] {Threei}  wow... you may be maturing as a ttrader
[08:29] {magoo} any tears?
[08:29] {Threei}  I am all misty-eyed
[08:30] {magoo} me too, but mine are tears of pain to miss such a run
[08:31] {Threei}  ok, I take the maturing part back
[08:31] {Threei}  lol
[08:31] {Threei}  you know it was pure gut call on my part
[08:31] {Threei}  and risk control was impossible on that trade
[08:32] {magoo} i know, but yuor gut is well respected on the american continent, in trading rooms and RESTAURANTS alike
[08:32] {Threei}  I sincerely hope you are not referring to it as a pork belly
[08:51] {lilyd} good morning...
[08:51] {Threei}  lily :)
[08:52] {lilyd} 3i, I have an early morning question.  I wasn't here yest afternoon, but read the dialogue on GOOG.
[08:53] {Threei}  one where larisa chided me for being superficial and bragging? :)
[08:53] {lilyd} What made you think that it was a "trap" and would turn around and go up big - as it did?
[08:53] {Threei}  honestly lily, pure gut feel
[08:53] {Threei}  no technical read it it
[08:54] {Threei}  best I can describe it:
[08:54] {Threei}  watching its action,
[08:54] {Threei}  watching market selling off of its recent highs ahead of major earnings announcement,
[08:55] {Threei}  seeing how it sold about 4 bucks or so (which is nothing for GOOG) and stubbornly refused to sell any further.
[08:55] {Threei}  everything in me screamed "bear trap."
[08:56] {Threei}  it's just something that comes from years of seeing a lot of situations
[08:56] {Threei}  and learning to recognize some of them.
[08:56] {Threei}  same for APOL short call
[08:56] {Threei}  but as far as actual trade goes.
[08:56] {Threei}  it's about risk control for me
[08:57] {Threei}  whch was tough but douable on APOL
[08:57] {Threei}  but impossible on GOOG.
[08:57] {Threei}  so APOL got official call status
[08:57] {Threei}  while GOOG didn't
[08:57] {magoo} how'd u like the Top Gun read lol?
[08:57] {Threei}  hope I didn't disappoint you too much with this answer but this is the best I can do
[08:58] {lilyd} not disappointed - just hoping to learn something - thanks
[08:59] {Threei}  it comes to you
[08:59] {Threei}  step by step.
[09:00] {Threei}  some thing you can rush a bit,
[09:00] {Threei}  some must happen at their natural pace
[09:01] {Threei}  this collecting of arsenal of recognizable situations, while can be sped up by deliberate observations, requires an actual experience, time put in so to speak
[09:01] {Threei}  as you need to be there while things happen, not just think of it and realize something
[09:02] {RonS} gm all...summary of Bernanke speech: "I sure like my helicopter, and will continue to use it".
[09:02] {Threei}  Ron :)
[09:04] {RonS} euro ripped through 1.41 on speech but has given all back and then some
[09:04] {RonS} ...but the .tnx is up .45 to 25.40
[09:04] {strider} short AMLN .88

[09:05] {Threei}  *(US) SEPT ADVANCE RETAIL SALES: 0.6% V 0.4%E; RETAIL SALES LESS AUTOS: 0.4% V 0.3%E
[09:06] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Bernanke: Fed's next steps are contingent on economic data, Fed must proceed with caution on more asset buying
[09:06] {Threei}  - Inflation is too low, may stay that way for some time. At current rates of inflation, short-term real interest rates are too high.
[09:06] {Threei}  - The risk of deflation is higher than is desirable.
[09:06] {Threei}  - Notes that evidence suggests that asset buying is effective in aiding the economy. Warns that balance sheet expansion is a risk to inflation expectations.
[09:06] {Threei}  - Fed needs to weigh the costs and benefits in deciding how aggressive to be with pace or size of any asset purchases.
[09:06] {Threei}  - High level of unemployment is cyclical, not structural. Unemployment will likely persist for some time. Prolonged high unemployment poses risks to a sustainable recovery.
[09:06] {Threei}  - The economic recovery has slowed, growth will be fairly modest in the near term.
[09:06] {Threei}  - QE2 would have undesirable impact on inflation expectations.
[09:06] {Threei}  - Note: Statement mostly repeats the context of the minutes from the 9/21 FOMC meeting; affirming that deflation risks are high, and that more QE could be deemed necessary in the future; note in the minutes members were quoted as saying that unless the pace of economic recovery strengthened or underlying inflation moved back toward a level consistent with the Committee's mandate, they would consider it appropriate to take action soon.
[09:07] {Threei}  - QE2 would have undesirable impact on inflation expectations.
[09:10] {Threei}  Euro vs US Dollar USD weakens against European pairs following Fed remarks
[09:10] {Threei}  - EUR/USD at fresh 9 month highs at 1.4159
[09:10] {Threei}  - Fed Gov Bernanke initial comments sent the USD weaker across the initial text of the Fed speech appeared to be a cause for action on quantitative easing (QE2).
[09:10] {Threei}  - EUR/USD tested its highest level since Jan as the texted highlighted that prospects of little job growth and desire for higher inflation. Dealers noted that Bernanke did not officially state QE is coming explicitly, and he outlined the potential drawbacks of doing so but that the relevant message.
[09:10] {Threei}  - The message that comes through in the text of fed speak was that the hurdles needed to justify QE have been met.
[09:11] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Lockhart: Gap in unemployment can be addressed through policy, despite some structural elements - Q
[09:11] {Threei}  really?

[12:02] {Threei}  but then again, she is berating me for what goes on 10 years now, so I kind of consider it a part of daily exercise
[12:02] {Les} penitence Vad, penitence
[12:02] {Threei}  keeps me in shape and delivers her joy :)
[12:03] {Threei}  and yes, I am full of that thing.. penitence
[12:03] {Les} damn finnies X, aig all the favourites in step with the index. meandering day
[12:03] {Threei}  - Article notes that on on Sept 9 the United Steelworkers petitioned the Obama administration to probe export restraints, subsidies, discrimination against foreign companies that would harm U.S. interests and run counter to global trade rules.
[12:03] {Threei}  wow APOL
[12:03] {Threei}  oversold gets what?
[12:04] {Threei}  right, oversolder
[12:04] {ese} out apol .25 -.40  1/2 lot daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
[12:04] {Threei}  until it becomes what?
[12:04] {Threei}  right, oversoldest
[12:04] {Threei}  then it sells some more
[12:04] {Threei}  and only then it bounces
[12:05] {Les} esi still green. could be a short
[12:06] {ese} do you determine the oversold/oversold condition
[12:06] {Threei}  well
[12:06] {dino} 35 coming, i was day early
[12:07] {Threei}  there is this notion that some indicators give you this idea
[12:07] {Threei}  most common are stochastic and RSI
[12:07] {ese} i'm all eyes
[12:07] {ese} i don't use those
[12:08] {Threei}  neither do I
[12:08] {Threei}  stochastic reading under 20 is considered oversold, and above 80 - overbought
[12:08] {Threei}  the only problem is, in trending environment it doesn't mean much
[12:08] {ese} yup
[12:08] {Threei}  if market is locked in the range, then yes,
[12:09] {Threei}  stochastic will oscillate back and forth between extreme readings
[12:09] {Threei}  but in trend it does this:
[12:09] {Threei}  moves in over-whatever zone
[12:09] {Threei}  pauses,
[12:09] {Threei}  spends a little time there,
[12:10] {Threei}  and then the price stays consoidating while stochastic returns into moderate readingsa
[12:10] {Threei}  and then the price breaks out and makes new high or low
[12:10] {Threei}  and stochastic catches up returing to that "over" zone
[12:10] {Threei}  RSI does the same
[12:11] {Threei}  so...
[12:11] {RonS} "if they don't scare you out, they will wear you out"
[12:11] {ese} hmmmmmmmmm
[12:11] {ese} ya got sucked into that last one for sure
