Mar 25 2011

Nice strong end to the week, with many winning trades and very few stops. Ended up with cute little scalp on the last minutes, just as matter of statement for the weekend.

[09:50] {Threei}  ty

[09:51] {Threei}  but elected to ignore it
[09:51] {nemo} wow cree
[09:51] {Threei}  maybe RIMM is telling me I need to get in touch with feminine side

[09:53] {Threei}  almost every morning it does this sharp drop

[09:53] {Threei}  we wait for strictly defined setup
[09:53] {strider} k
[09:54] {Threei}  but it doesn't give ay, it breaks any support it can fined and it's good night itene
[09:54] {Threei}  so what I tried to do here was to find that "any kind of support"
[09:54] {Threei}  first was .90, formed by first opening moves
[09:55] {Threei}  it elected to break resistance instead
[09:55] {Threei}  consolidated a little above new support

[11:39] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Evans: Sees no need for QE3, after QE2 ends it would be natural to expect a certain period to elapse before further policy changes are enacted; economy is moving away from potential liquidity trap
[11:39] {Threei}  - Could be "months" after QE2 before policy is unwound, favors a "pretty accommodative" policy post-QE2.
[11:39] {Threei}  - Sees a tremendous amount of resource slack currently.
[11:39] {Threei}  - Wage, rent and clothing prices remain relatively low.
[11:39] {Threei}  - Disagrees with the view that Fed policies have been dangerous.
[11:39] {Threei}  - Expects to see US unemployment rate of 7.5% by end of 2012 v 8% prior forecast. Jobless rate is falling faster than expected.

[12:29] {davd} that yen unwind might be starting up again re ycs
[12:33] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Plosser: Fed needs to tighten policy in the not-too-distant future, failure to exit policy at the right moment will have serious consequences for US inflation and economic stability
[12:33] {Threei}  - Plosser declines to qualify exactly when the Fed should begin exiting policy
[12:33] {Threei}  - Events in Japan and the Middle East pose very small risks to the US economy.
[12:33] {Threei}  - Highlights that the US economy has gained "significant strength."
[12:33] {Threei}  - Does not believe that weakness in real estate will prevent a broader economic recovery.
[12:33] {Threei}  NOTE: On Feb 23rd said: - has not ruled out a dissent at FOMC meetings - deflation threat has largely abated, beginning to see increasing pricing pressures
[12:33] {Threei}  - May end QE2 if economy accelerates further or if inflation is higher
[12:33] {Threei}  (US) 10-yr Treasury Note yield above 3.42% following Plosser comments - 2-week high

[12:37] {Threei}  Only 33% Think Most Americans Blame Humans for Global Warming
[12:37] {RonS} huh?
[12:37] {Threei}  what a weird study
[12:38] {Threei}  In reality, roughly 40% of Likely Voters consistently have blamed global warming primarily on human activity. A plurality has just as consistently found that planetary trends are chiefly to blame.
[12:42] {Threei}  thanks to Plosser, canadian dollar finally shows some wekaness
[12:46] {Threei}  too bad I haven't paid much atention to that comment... there were too many of them lately, I became a bit immune

[13:09] {larisa} you in the call ?
[13:09] {Threei}  why? I meant exactly what I typed
[13:09] {Threei}  FXC
[13:10] {larisa} thought FCX :)
[13:10] {Threei}  no, FXC :)
[13:11] {Threei}  but if you thought I meant FCX, why did you ask whether I meant X?
[13:11] {Threei}  sorry, but I just have to ask :)
[13:11] {larisa} because  FCX i s not at .30 and X was and was breaking down. would be perfect call, wanted to  say gj :)
[13:12] {larisa} but forget it :)
[13:12] {Threei}  I bettre... this is way too convoluted, my brain may get electrocuted if I try to untangle that :)
[13:13] {Threei}  but hey... it's telling,that you ratjer invent such complicated sheme rather than believe that I typed what I wanted to ype... :)
[13:14] {Threei}  and the way I typed all that shows why
[13:14] {larisa} it is easy :) you always mistype. We always play FCX. So it is only reasonable to thoink you did it again :)
[13:14] {Threei}  right
[13:14] {Threei}  thoinking will do that
[13:15] {larisa} :)

[13:48] {rambler} bot PRAN 3.10
[13:53] {rambler} Vad, you watching BMY......?
[13:54] {rambler} sad sad story......
[13:54] {Threei}  yes but 27 break was rthe only more or less readable setup
[13:54] {Threei}  oh come on
[13:54] {Threei}  evcery day there are thousands of stocks that move
[13:55] {Threei}  if you consider all of sad sories, you will be crying non-stop 24/7/365
[13:55] {rambler} lol
[13:57] {rambler} that said,'s still painfull to watch...
[13:57] {Threei}  ask nemo for his fanous painkiller recipe
[13:57] {Threei}  it includes 4 or 5 drinks mixed, none of them below 40%... but proportion matters
[13:59] {rambler} on the positive side.....1)   I found it     2)   I bought it....
[13:59] {Threei}  where?
[14:00] {rambler} now for 3)  sticking with it....

[14:01] {dino} erj sm l .76
[14:01] {rambler} bought at 26.89
[14:06] {Threei}  and sold?
[14:07] {rambler} sold at 26.96
[14:07] {Threei}  yeah, that's way too tight
[14:07] {rambler} yup...
[14:08] {Threei}  a few cents make sense only if yo play really big shares... scalp Type I
[14:09] {rambler} I'm too impatient I think...
[14:10] {Threei}  you are focusing on a wrong thing
[14:10] {Threei}  on money
[14:10] {rambler} you are right...
[14:11] {Threei}  money is not a subject of your job
[14:11] {Threei}  tradingh right is,
[14:11] {Threei}  so
[14:11] {Threei}  focus on a chart signal instead
[14:20] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Fisher: Will not support additional bond buying after Fed completes QE2; Would support inflation-only Fed mandate
[14:23] {davd} its like libya up there.  do you need nato to help?
[14:24] {Threei}  hmmm
[14:25] {Threei}  nah, I think we will defeat them
[14:25] {Threei}  buit look what weird system we have
[14:25] {Threei}  Note that following a vote of no confidence, the prime minister visits the Governor-General of Canada - currently David Johnston - to inform him of the vote. Only a minority government usually loses a confidence vote, because it does not control a majority of seats. As the representative of the Queen and the head of state, only the Governor-General can call a new election (but does so only when requested by the prime minister). The new election will be the 4th in the last seven years.
[14:26] {Threei}  so, imagine this:
[14:26] {Threei}  Queen is a head of state,
[14:26] {Threei}  Governor-General represents her, and as such, can call an election
[14:27] {Threei}  but Prime Minister is the one who puts him in his chair
[14:27] {Threei}  convoluted enough for ya?
[14:31] {RonS} wow, that bmy melanoma drug that got approved is $30k per dose and the protocol requires four doses
[14:31] {Threei}  main question is, is it covered?
[14:31] {Threei}  'cause if not, forget about it
[14:31] {RonS} ring up the death panel...
[14:31] {Threei}  yup
[14:34] {Threei}  as if this continent was lacking stupid statements,
[14:34] {Threei}  (EU) ECB's Noyer: Sovereign debt crisis is not an issue for the Euro, only related to economic governance
[14:34] {Threei}  - Calls for better governance of member states
[14:34] {Threei}  - Supports automatic sanctions of stability agreements, cannot say the EMU is safe from a future crisis
[14:35] {Threei}  stuptidity is not really limited to any side of the pond eh?
[14:35] {RonS} lol...Canadian general to take NATO command of Libya
[14:36] {Threei}  yeah
[14:42] {Threei}  whoever wants to get vfery drunk very fast, for the next 6 weeks can play a drinking way watching canadian TV. Drink every time you hear conservatives saying "fragile recovery" and "coalition."
[14:42] {Threei}  play a drinking game
[14:43] {Threei}  (PO) Portugal political parties move to hold early elections rather than form new coalition government - financial press
