Just one 10 cents stop with 7 or 8 winning trades - nothing to complain about. Especially nice was LVS short immediately helped by news and rewarding us with 50 cents profit in 4 minutes.

[11:11] {rambler} my question is...why build plants along that to fault line...?
[11:11] {Threei}  we had stellar morning, let's use it as our buffer for safety
[11:12] {Threei}  if something reassuring comes out of Japan, we will have enormous relief rally

[11:13] {nemo} tck also

[11:25] {Threei}  NY Fed said to have pushed back coupon purchases to around 11:45ET due to market volatility - US press citing sources
[11:25] {rambler} I just use a .10 stop loss...
[11:26] {Threei}  even Fed is scared of volatility
[11:26] {nemo} What's that got to do with where support is?
[11:26] {nemo} Another question: Where did you enter?
[11:27] {rambler} entered at 55.73
[11:28] {rambler} out at 55.53
[11:28] {nemo} that made your stop .83, yes?
[11:28] {rambler} quick scalp is all...
[11:28] {rambler} no big plan....
[11:29] {Threei}  as much as I appreciate profits, .73 was a bit too much chasing
[11:29] {rambler} yes, that sounds about right..
[11:29] {nemo} gotta' love Hail Mary's when they work
[11:29] {larisa} no it was not, break of uptrend and enter short on pullback to res. gj rambler :)
[11:30] {strider} OK.   I agree with you guys.
[11:30] {rambler} thanks larisa
[11:30] {Threei}  as a general idea of the trade, yes
[11:31] {dino} million ways to trade, gj rambler
[11:31] {Threei}  as particular entry - look at the range near resistance
[11:31] {nemo} that would have meant entry at .80 Lari
[11:31] {Threei}  .85 - 56
[11:31] {Threei}  .83 - .80 as entry, that's right way to play it
[11:31] {Threei}  .73 is good 10 cents chasing
[11:34] {larisa} .83 is entry as agressive entry, with no confirm of short term trend break :) all depends on what you like :)
[11:34] {Threei}  Tokyo Electric Power Co Inc Wants Japanese military to retry pouring water through helicopter on Fukushima reactor
[11:34] {Threei}  ** Note: - There were earlier attempts to cool the reactors by using helicopters, though the Japan Defence Minister later confirmed that the plan was abandoned due to the high levels of radiation.

[11:38] {RonS} didn't Chernobyl have some real heros who sacrificed themselves for the greater good 3i?
[11:38] {nemo} at the end of a gun probably
[11:39] {RonS} more likely a bribe...
[11:39] {Threei}  not really Ron
[11:39] {nemo} I guess being drunk reduced the likelihood of radiation poisoning
[11:39] {Threei}  some just were there and continued fighting for their life, some were sent in with not enough information, some - with promise of perks
[11:39] {strider} it was for the 'greater hood'

[13:13] {Threei}  yup, I am deep
[13:14] {Threei}  especially when sober
[13:14] {Threei}  gotta share this with you, just got it in the mail
[13:14] {Threei}  Dear Vad:
[13:14] {Threei}
[13:14] {Threei}  I want to thank you for compiling your appreciation of the Tao on this magnificent course. I am a speed reader and in average I read 2-3 books a week. On this e-book I am taking all the time in the World so I can let your writings sink in and and simmer and take shape within me.
[13:14] {Threei}
[13:14] {Threei}  still cannot believe the wealth of knowledge and wisdom packed in what I have read so far. One thing that I have been contemplating is the colossal depth of each essay. In my personal library you will find the entire collection of i.e David Hawkins and Wayne Dyer to mention just a couple of great spiritual writers and your course stands on its own right next to these two great authors.
[13:15] {Threei}  believe that many will read this e-book and it might not make sense at first. One most definitely should be at a specific consciousness level in order for your work to make profound effect and at the same time I can tell that your book can be read 100 times and one will find a different meaning every single time its read..
[13:15] {Threei}
[13:15] {Threei}  a few more paragraphs
[13:15] {Threei}  but you got the gist
06[13:16] * Threei is done bragging for the day
[13:16] {rambler} sounds like they approve....
