[13:16] {Threei}  BIDU works
[13:18] {khaln} .
[13:19] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Lockhart: Leaning in favor of more monetary stimulus, believes another round of asset purchases could help the economy beyond increasing credit
[13:19] {Threei}  - Sees risk of disinflation leading to deflation, may support Fed QE to prevent deflation.
[13:19] {Threei}  - Expects US GDP growth to pick up modestly from Q2 level, sees downside risks to growth.
[13:19] {Threei}  - Sees modest growth increase in Q4, but with downside risks.
[13:24] {davd} move powi stop dino?
[13:25] {dino} flat
[13:26] {dino} partially out
[13:26] {dino} some went for .66
[13:28] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Lockhart: Inflation target should be at around 1.7-2.0% - Q (related TLT SHY IEF EUR/USD USD/JPY GBP/USD USD/CAD )
[13:29] {Threei}  is it amazing that inflation is considered necessary component of healthy financial system?
[13:30] {dino} it is, cheaper to pay back loans, etc w/inflated $. deflation more expensive because you have less $ w/same loan amount
[13:31] {davd} ok, i'll keep the stop
[13:31] {Threei}  why should it be inflation or deflation
[13:31] {Threei}  how about steady baseline
[13:32] {dino} borrowing
[13:32] {Threei}  not punishing savers, not rewarding borrowers
[13:32] {Threei}  everyone lives with consequences of their choices
[13:32] {dino} out remainder powi, ave toal .63,
[13:32] {dino} +.13
[13:33] {dino} 3i, think of it as why do you speculte? for higher prices
[13:33] {Threei}  I can live with lower prices as well :)
[13:33] {Threei}  that's why they invented sell short button
[13:34] {davd} out powi +.06
[13:34] {dino} my point tho in simple terms, nobody buys a stock or house to remain stagnate. they "invest" to grow
[13:34] {Threei}  well, I underatand that but
[13:34] {Threei}  there is another model
[13:34] {Threei}  it,
[13:34] {dino} capitalism requires some inflation otherwise nobody moves
[13:34] {Threei}  in it
[13:34] {Threei}  house is not an investment but a place to live
[13:34] {Les} I like the old american model
[13:35] {dino} not in usa
[13:35] {Threei}  and stocks go up on tyhe merits of business, not on increased money supply
[13:35] {Les} where a $ was a buck for 200 years
[13:35] {Les} I could happily raise livestock for a fair wage
[13:35] {dino} and you forget the biggest reason for inflatio, govt spending/deficits. the only way out
[13:36] {Threei}  sure, that one I know
[13:36] {Threei}  who doesn't... that's what ruins us
[13:37] {dino} well, that is reality my friend
[13:37] {Threei}  yeah
[13:38] {dino} as you always said to me years ago, "be water"
[13:38] {Threei}  just amazing how they managed to make this concept an inalienable part of society, psyche
[13:38] {davd} good out on powi dino
[13:38] {dino} yeah, lets see if lod holds. also .75 on exxi if holds

[15:54] {Les} ok
[15:58] {Threei}  AAPl won't get halted for earnings?
[15:58] {Threei}  they used to do it rehularly
[15:58] {Threei}  per company request
[16:01] {Threei}  let's see what AAPl says
[16:03] {RonS} vmw spike
[16:04] {Threei}  VMW Reports Q3 $0.39 v $0.35e, R$714M v $698Me
[16:06] {dino} bac restarting foreclosures 10/25/10

[16:08] {RonS} me too
[16:08] {RonS} Les is still here...
[16:09] {Threei}  he just passed ut forgetting to disconnect
[16:09] {Threei}  IBM Reports Q3 $2.82 v $2.75e, R$ v $24.1Be
[16:09] {davd} me here
[16:09] {Threei}  R$24.3B v $24.1Be
[16:10] {Threei}  - Guides FY10 EPS at least $11.40 v $11.27e
[16:10] {Threei}  hmmm

[16:10] {Threei}  drops like a rock
[16:10] {RonS} down
[16:11] {Les} sell the news hey... let's see tomorrow
[16:11] {RonS} i think this happened last quarte in the ah to ibm...and then it recovered the next day
[16:11] {Threei}  could be... I don't see anything negative in the report
[16:11] {davd} s&p futures down a bit as well.

[16:19] {RonS} cwtr is going to get whacked
[16:21] {Threei}  just a thought:
[16:21] {dino} calling it a day. later all
