[09:09] {RonS} anyone catch pcln at 391 in the ah?
[09:09] {Threei}  when it fully comes in effect, your summer will be Antarctic
[09:09] {dino} indeed
[09:11] {RonS} funny how high oil doesn't put a knock on pcln
[09:15] {ese} gm
[09:15] {Threei}  ese :)
[09:15] {Threei}  you OK there?
[09:15] {_rambler} gm ese
[09:16] {ese} in terms of .......
[09:16] {ese} power out somewhere?
[09:16] {Threei}  being buried in snow?
[09:16] {ese} rambler
[09:16] {Threei}  no, power may come an issue this evening, wind warning in effect :)
[09:17] {ese} were fine here...........4 wheel drive Land Rover Discovery solves alot of problems
[09:17] {Threei}  true
[09:18] {Threei}  spoke to a friend in Winnipeg yesterday, he was very amused when I said "gotta drive around, get some phtos with snow before it meltes away,,," said "weird problem to have - I can photograph snow for 5 months wuithout hurry"
[09:19] {ese} lol
[09:19] {larisa} gm :)
[09:19] {Threei}  larisa :)
[09:19] {larisa} vad, ese :)
[09:19] {Threei}  but I did get a nice one, will post later
[09:19] {ese} my only worries would be if the Wine speciality store closed down on Fort and Foul Bay streets
[09:19] {ese} laris
[09:20] {Threei}  btw, veeryone looked at yesterday's Catch of the Day?
[09:20] {RonS} yes
[09:20] {_rambler} y
[09:20] {ese} not yet
[09:20] {Threei}  and don't anyone dare to ask where it is
[09:20] {ScottM} yes
[09:20] {Threei}  cool
[09:20] {_cabogordon} newbie here. do i go into discussion or floor tab for trade idea's / thxs
[09:21] {Threei}  hi cabo
[09:21] {Threei}  everything is posted in both channels,
[09:21] {_cabogordon} good morning  / thxs
[09:21] {Threei}  #floor just doesn't have anything but my comments, for less clutter
[09:21] {ScottM} yesterday's play of day was great... too bad I was having technical probs at the time...:(
[09:22] {Threei}  so far my impression is,
[09:22] {Threei}  we are to have a recovery day today,
[09:22] {ese} welcome cab
[09:22] {RonS} but don't use it need to see dino in action
[09:22] {Threei}  most likely startuing with pullback first thing after the open
[09:22] {Threei}  as those who want out use the bounce to sell into,
[09:23] {Threei}  then bulls take over and carry the flag
[09:23] {RonS} it all depends on the price of oil i'm afraid...
[09:24] {ese} and tea in china?
[09:25] {RonS} herd mentality in full swing it seems
[09:25] {Threei}  ain't it always
[09:25] {Threei}  targeting LVS for short
[09:26] {Threei}  stays in red as market went positive
[09:26] {RonS} i guess but it is often more subtle than now...
[09:26] {Threei}  SLW too, tends to move opposite to the market lately
[09:27] {Threei}  I'd also short Reid in his battle against prostitution as he is bound to lose it, but he is not publickly traded
[09:27] {ScottM} lol
[09:27] {ese} call me crazy seems like silver is becoming a bit of a hedge like gold or perceived in the same way last few years
[09:27] {Threei}  pretty much, yes
[09:28] {ese} or is it just us on the board playing it all the time
[09:28] {Threei}  ith nuances of coyrse, as silver has more industrial application than gold
[09:28] {RonS} reid could use a few...dingy harry...
[09:29] {ese} thats my perception
[09:29] {ScottM} I have a friend who pays little attention to financial markets who asked me to go with him yesterday to buy some silver
[09:29] {davd} mustang ranch to have a going out of business sale
[09:29] {dino} sign of top

[12:57] {Threei}  share
[12:58] {Threei}  others observe and track, to see whose skills and style they are comfortable with
[12:58] {_cabogordon} thxs
[12:58] {Threei}  in a short while you'll see who plays what
[12:58] {Threei}  for instance, dino's plays are usually thinner stocks, higher risk, smaller lots, wider stops, farther targets
[12:58] {dino} cabo-wabo, 3i is paid caller. i just call my trades because it reinforces discipline for me
[12:58] {strider} missed a good c&h R
[12:58] {strider} IG
[12:58] {strider} RIG
[12:58] {Threei}  he also tends to play reversals more often
[12:59] {dino} idcc stop is .82
[12:59] {Threei}  my trades tend to be with tighter risk control, bigger lots
[13:00] {_cabogordon} you guys trading off a 5 or 15 min chart
[13:00] {Threei}  smaller stops and targets
[13:00] {Threei}  and more trend following
[13:00] {Threei}  1 min and daily here

[13:05] {Threei}  very typical for us
[13:06] {Threei}  consolidation, breakout, spike
[13:06] {Threei}  entry on break, exit into spike
[13:06] {Threei}  easy scalp
[13:06] {kschun} you mean the fcx play ?

[13:09] {Threei}  we are not pure stock pickers
[13:09] {Threei}  our emphasis is on education
[13:09] {_cabogordon} clf

[13:25] {Threei}  Rare earth prices gain sharply as China reins in supply - Nikkei News
[13:25] {Threei}  - The price of neodymium, one of the raw materials for magnets used in hybrid-vehicle motors, has shot up 60% since December to 170-190 dollars per kilogram. Cerium, used to polish LCD-screen glass, has seen a 46% price hike. Dysprosium alloys are changing hands at a price 31% higher.
[13:25] {Threei}  - Negotiations between Chinese rare-earth producers and Japanese importers finally got underway recently, later than in a typical year because producers took longer to come up with offers. So far, Japanese users have been accepting high prices since many of them are anxious to secure supplies.
