[10:34] {RonS} code
[10:36] {Threei}  something is very off about market today
[10:36] {Threei}  can't quite put a finger on it
[10:36] {nemo} monday
[10:37] {davd} the fact that it is in the read is strange
[10:37] {davd} red
[10:37] {Les} I often see market like this after strong performance day like Thu/Fri
[10:37] {Les} not only consolidating
[10:37] {Les} but throwing traders off
[10:38] {Les} in the process
[10:38] {Threei}  davd, IMO:
[10:38] {Threei}  this red is an initial reaction on dollar strength
[10:39] {Threei}  as dollar continues rallying, market will at some point abandon its inverse realtion to a buck and start rallying with it
[10:39] {Les} look how well 'buy the bounce' functioned on Fri
[10:39] {davd} i agree, if you see the dollar drop a little after the european markets close, us mkts could bounce
[10:39] {Threei}  (US) SEC's Schapiro: SEC is in the middle of planning changes to drive more market stability (related XLF )
[10:39] {Les} why do you see that vad?
[10:39] {Threei}  then of course there isd always SEC to mess things up
[10:39] {Les} as a trick
[10:40] {Threei}  not a trick
[10:40] {Threei}  just market changing its ways
[10:40] {Les} or as a source of "security"
[10:40] {Threei}  sorry, lost me
[10:40] {Les} traders seeking the $ and equities
[10:41] {Threei}  I am not looking at macroeconomics here
[10:41] {Threei}  rather at the normal market mechanism
[10:41] {Les} ah ok
[10:41] {Threei}  everyone knew QE2 weas coming
[10:42] {ese} thats a great boat....would like to sail on it one day
[10:42] {Threei}  to expect a dollar to crash after it was announced would be to ignore the very mechanism that warrants market functioning, namely - discountng the future
[10:42] {davd} you are sailing on it.
[10:42] {ese} lol
[10:43] {Threei}  lol
[10:43] {RonS} sohu +5.66
[10:45] {jfjf64} lvs
[10:45] {jfjf64} gettin  going
[10:48] {Les} news APC vad?
[10:49] {Threei}  from Nov 4
[10:49] {Threei}  APC According to UBS, Anadarko or Australia's Woodside Petroleum may become BHP acquisition targets (65.96, +2.32, 3.65%) (related WPL.AU BHP.AU )
[10:52] {Threei}  (US) SEC's Schapiro: SEC is in the middle of planning changes to drive more market stability, laying out a 'road map' of market structural reforms
[10:52] {Threei}  - Must deal with algorithms that go wild in the US marketplace.
[10:59] {davd} good call rons
[10:59] {davd} re 10:50is
[11:00] {RonS} been the pattern works until it doesn't...seemed to make sense w/ $ strength

[11:25] {Les} 10:30 or around there
[11:26] {_flautero} :)
[11:27] {Les} testing out with 100 shares earlier. but its clear that once the momo behaviour drops off, even a beast like SOHU reads correctly.
[11:27] {Les} but I didn't short it, so credit to fl

[12:40] {Threei}  US Dept of Homeland Security confirms additional cargo screening procedures, including the ban of certain toner cartridges
[12:40] {Threei}  - Specifically, the ban on air cargo from Yemen will continue and has been extended to all air cargo from Somalia as well. In addition, no high risk cargo will be allowed on passenger aircraft. Toner and ink cartridges over 16 ounces will be prohibited on passenger aircraft in both carry-on bags and checked bags on domestic and international flights in-bound to the United States.
[12:41] {Threei}  they have got to be kidding
[12:41] {Les} always one step behind
[12:42] {Threei}  someone tries to get liquid explosive on board, they put limits on personal toiletry. Another tries to use ink cartridge as masquerade, they ban those. How long before we run out of things to transport?
[12:44] {Les} will suit airline industry just fine i think
[12:44] {Threei}  when we ban everything, they may just as well ground all the planes
[12:45] {Les} that would be anti-business vad
[12:45] {Les} make life difficult for passengers yes
[12:46] {Les} but leave planes on tarmac doesn't have nice business ringtone
[12:47] {Les} but effectively same thing. I hate flying now

[12:51] {Threei}  Bush says he had introduced then-Russian President Putin to his Scottish terrier, Barney, on a visit to the U.S. presidential retreat, Camp David.
[12:51] {Threei}  Putin returned the favor when Bush visited Russia and Putin was giving him a tour of the grounds of his dacha.
[12:51] {Threei}  "A big black Labrador came charging across the lawn. With a twinkle in his eye, Vladimir said, 'Bigger, stronger, faster than Barney,'" Bush writes. A copy of the book was obtained by Reuters.
[12:51] {Threei}  Bush says he later told the story to the Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, who replied: "You're lucky he only showed you his dog."

[13:52] {Threei}  - Comments that over the coming 8 months (the end of QE2 program) the Fed will be 'monetizing debt'
[13:52] {Threei}  - Fed's recent decision on easing steps were a 'leap of faith' that the fiscal authorities would act on the budget, new Congress must act quickly to tighten fiscal policy

Such filing may be with or without agreement with major creditor groups concerning a plan of reorganization. The filing for bankruptcy protection would accelerate the maturity of all of the Companys indebtedness.
