Nov 02 2010

Very nice day with many active plays, starting with nice short on RIMM and ending with nice fat long on ASIA, with plenty inbetween.

Today's Catch of the Day is a good example of trader's adaptability to always changing market conditions. Take a look at the first chart. Our standard setup was to short X under two conditions: iIFit broke 44.95 and IF it held under 45 before doing so. X however broke 45 first, spiked to 45.10 invalidating our setup - and THEN proceeded down, showing what could have been a perfect trade. Not having our setup triggered we simply missed profit opportunity.

15 minutes later FCX formed the same setup - 97.90 short trigger, 98 resistance. Remembering how X acted we assumed that this was today's behavior and adjusted our strategy. Instead of missing another one, we waited for that invalidating spike and re-calibrated our setup accordingly - we shorted 98 breakdown AFTER the spike, with the same 10 cents stop. Chart below speaks for itself.

[08:45] {magoo} why
[08:46] {Threei}  their combination of no payment and loaded with generous rweards cards is way more att5ractive than Visa
[08:46] {Les} damn I'm sick of hearing of mega rewards for cards in US
[08:46] {Threei}  I for one totally moved my whole payment stream from Vuisa to Mastercad
[08:47] {Threei}  I use credit cards for convenience and rewards,. not for credit, killing balance in full, each month
[08:47] {Threei}  and for many years Visa was my main cards
[08:47] {Les} ditto, but no rewards in switzerland
[08:47] {Threei}  earlier this year switched 95% of payments to MA
[08:48] {Threei}  double vs V reward on most purchase, triple on food and fuel, and no annual payment
[08:49] {Threei}  I'd suspect I am not the only one noticing that and reacting
[08:49] {Les} V looking like a sympathy play. .80 break

[08:59] {Threei}  I want to charge them 1 cent a year for the privilege
[09:00] {Threei}  but noooooo

[09:25] {Threei}  - Major disputes between choosing MSFT or Goog came down to security standards as MSFT hosts information all over the world, in Feb announced they would have special domestic servers for the Govt.
[09:25] {Threei}  - GOOG says that their apps for Govt meets all security standards while MSFT's new net up has not yet been approved.
[09:25] {Threei}  - Google also says that the Department of the Interior insisted that its systems be hosted on a set of servers used only for federal customers; Google Apps for Government hosts systems for federal, state, and local governments, so this was a problem.
[09:25] {Threei}  - Govt changed their mind when they chose Microsoft's BPOS solution.
[09:25] {Threei}  - Google says that Microsoft's BPOS services for businesses have had several outages, including a 4-day outage in January, which contradicts the requirement of 99.95% uptime.
