Feb 01 2011

Old gap-n'-stall makes for a boring inactive day after a brief period of morning activity. Positive but nothing beyond "another day in the office."

Session Time: Tue Feb 01 00:00:00 2011
[07:59] {magoo} morning
[08:09] {nemo}  The one day pullback is confirmed...We're off to the races again
[08:18] {magoo} talking heads on cnbc seem to think so
[08:24] {nemo} wow...a hurricane is headed for the Queensland area that has already experienced flooding of biblical proportions.
[08:25] {nemo} I spent some time up there by The Great Barrier Reef...beautiful area
[08:31] {Threei}  OREX... sic transit gloria mundi
[08:31] {magoo} yea..so news
[08:32] {Threei}  FDA'
[08:33] {Threei}  - The FDA noted concern about the cardiovascular safety profile of naltrexone/bupropion when used long-term in a population of overweight and obese subjects. Specifically, the letter stated that "before your application can be approved, you must conduct a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of sufficient size and duration to demonstrate that the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events in overweight and obese subjects treated with naltrexone/bupropion does not adversely affect the drug's benefit-risk profile." - "We are surprised and extremely disappointed with the Agency's request in light of the extensive discussion and resulting vote on this topic at the December 7 Advisory Committee meeting," said Michael Narachi, President and CEO of Orexigen. "We plan to work closely with the Agency to gain more information to determine the appropriate next steps regarding the Contrave application."
[08:34] {nemo} Oh jeez...it's a category 4, that's pretty powerful

[15:08] {Threei}  amazing how these things take life on their own
[15:08] {RonS} ...often I think Senators are really the stupidest people on earth

[15:13] {nemo} Kerry...oy vay...
[15:13] {nemo} another Masshole
[15:14] {nemo} Funny thing...bought this huge sailboat he moors in Rhode Island so he didn't have to pay the sales tax on it.
[15:17] {jfjf64} nice

[15:23] {nemo} wonder how much we gap up tomorrow
[15:24] {Threei}  sigh
[15:24] {nemo} ?
[15:24] {Threei}  I hate this gap and stall
[15:24] {Threei}  or gap and crawl
[15:25] {Threei}  jusy how much easier it's going to be when market finally tops out
[15:25] {nemo} not until Egypt spills over or POMO stops
[15:27] {nemo} POMO goes until May, and then he might do another
[15:28] {nemo} although, if next earning season companies fundies start deteriorating, then yeah
[15:31] {Threei}  I don't know if that's this simple
[15:32] {Threei}  there are too many factors
[15:32] {nemo} no, but if egypt blows up, or spreads...oil explodes
[15:32] {nemo} that'll bring things down
[15:32] {nemo} most companies have met or beat expectations
[15:32] {nemo} then you have Bernanke
[15:33] {Threei}  a bit too straghtforward to me... this possibility is so real, why doesn't market price it out mnow

[15:33] {Threei}  since when market prices in what is here
[15:33] {nemo} oil breaking $100 begins to be a threat to the economy

[15:44] {RonS} slw 1 cent
[15:45] {Threei}  ?
[15:45] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Hoening: Prefer to move to exit strategy in timely manner
[15:45] {Threei}  - Fed causing imbalances though inflation not a threat in near term
[15:45] {Threei}  - keeping rates too low for too long will hurt the dollar
[15:45] {Threei}  - still opposed to MBS reinvestments when QE2 ends; colleagues may discuss potential for QE3 if data turn disappointing.
[15:45] {Threei}  - Reiterates he would like to see fed funds rates moved to 1.00% and then pause.
[15:45] {Threei}  - REMINDER: Hoenig was the perennial dissenter on the FOMC during 2010, but rotated out of the voting membership this year.
[15:46] {Threei}  Fisher replaced him, right?
[15:46] {RonS} ...thought the guy was non-voting...who cares?
[15:46] {Threei}  {Ben to Fisher} look out or we rotate you out too
[15:47] {Threei}  colleagues may discuss potential for QE3 if data turn disappointing...
[15:47] {Threei}  any doubts it will?
[15:59] {Threei}  ok guys
[15:59] {Threei}  thank you all
[15:59] {Threei}  have a good evening, see you tomorrow
[15:59] {Threei}  hopefully for no big gap up
