[11:54] {dino} me too
[11:55] {Threei}  although looking at SLW, I tend to think it's about to reverse

[11:57] {Threei}  watching if ay setup forms
[11:58] {nemo} tza
[11:59] {nemo} think spy might have one more push to the .60 area

[15:37] {Threei}  so, like I said.. valid setup, just not my day

[15:37] {nemo} then dropped like a prom dress
[15:37] {Threei}  don't overanalyze it
[15:37] {Threei}  it's simply a case of things not being exact
[15:38] {nemo} I had the trendline drawn in, that's what happened
[15:38] {Threei}  and on some days you hit a cluster on non-exactness
[15:38] {nemo} I understand, just given such a strong tight trend...
[15:40] {nemo} I was actually playing it off of spy, because IWM has been a very good doggy today
