July 11 2012

Tie the pencil to mule's tail, get mule drunk, put a sheet of paper under the pencil and stub the mule with needle - you'll get today's chart. Pretty much sums it up. Quite a few good trades, but endless rinses, even though small. Annoying whipsawing action.

[12:55] {nemo} If merely 'feeling good' could decide, drunkenness would be the supremely valid human experience. ~ William James

[12:56] {nemo} better go for the coffee

12:59] {Threei}  to me, yes
[12:59] {dolores} OK
[12:59] {nemo} put the bottle down, Vad
12:59] {Threei}  why?
[12:59] {nemo} so you can type dolores an answer
13:00] {Threei}  I type with my elbows
[13:00] {nemo} Personally, can't wait until Windows can trade through voice command
[13:00] {nemo} of course, then all I'll have to worry about is slurred speech
[13:00] {Will49} so if you have a mental stop at .24 you don't bail at the first print, no?
[13:01] {nemo} if it's moving this slow and this thick no
13:01] {Threei}  as much as I am familiar with voice-activated systems, your "buy TZA at 32" will eaily be interpreted as "short MSFT at 2"
[13:01] {nemo} you'll have time to get out without much slippage
13:01] {Threei}  now I am out
[13:01] {dolores} now yes
13:01] {Threei}  nemo's right
[13:01] {nemo} maybe with your accent
13:02] {Threei}  nah, seen native english speakers with the same problem
[13:02] {nemo} if you have a stock like NFLX that trades like a bipolar crack addict, your better off getting out when you see the first transaction below your stop
[13:02] {Will49} Must be a real art
[13:02] {ese} need to make that more dramatic...something like ..."Will IS!!!!! back"!!!!!..........that would work
[13:02] {nemo} you'are
[13:02] {nemo} speaking of...hi ese
[13:02] {ese} lol
[13:03] {nemo} holy bejeezus look at tlt
13:03] {Threei}  while this strategy (keeping tight 5-6 cents stops and utilizing gains to bigger potentuial) is the right way to handle this swampy uncertain period,... must so many of them get stopped??
[13:04] {nemo} careflul abu longs with bonds ripping like that
[13:04] {dolores} VAD you dont buy closer to the lows with a tight stop?
[13:04] {dolores} in this crazy market
[13:04] {ese} pay is gonna make 36 me thinks
13:04] {Threei}  not really Will... reread scvalping booklet part devoted to Level 2 reading, you will get it down in no time
[13:05] {Will49} Will do (pun)
13:05] {Threei}  well, I try to buy pullbacks instead of breakouts today, dolores
13:05] {Threei}  but you see that still, many get whipsawed
[13:05] {dolores} ok
13:06] {Threei}  (EU) German Fin Min Schaeuble: Launching eurobonds now would ignore the lessons of the crisis
13:06] {Threei}  exactly
13:06] {Threei}  more debt as a cure from too much debt?
[13:06] {dolores} if fed hints action the commodities will rally?
[13:07] {dolores} or if the economy is btter than expected which I doubt?
13:07] {Threei}  they should... but so far Fed didn't
[13:07] {dolores} commmodities get the more benefit from something like q3?
13:08] {Threei}  right
[13:08] {dolores} is that why they got hammered
[13:08] {dolores} this in between
[13:08] {dolores} not good and not bad?
13:08] {Threei}  more money sloshing around - commodities is the natural place for money to flow to

[14:14] {dolores} no qe3 soon
14:16] {Threei}  pretty much... not yet at least
14:16] {Threei}  maybe closer to election
14:16] {Threei}  to boost the incumbent
[14:20] {dolores} financials holding green
[14:23] {nemo} frickin' Fed day
[14:26] {nemo} qcor looking interesting for short
[14:26] {nemo} think it gets to vwap first though
[14:27] {nemo} maybe not
[14:29] {dolores} bounced back a lot but has difficult breaking .60
[14:29] {dolores} if it does and market comes back....
14:29] {Threei}  Shorter Fed Minutes: "We may or may not do something someday."
[14:30] {nemo} To be or not to be, that is the question
[14:30] {nemo} Or, "It is a definite 'maybe'"
14:33] {Threei}  GG... ^%$#@(&
[14:35] {nemo} upro long .81 small
[14:35] {nemo} stop .69
[14:36] {dolores} QCOR pity
[14:36] {nemo} weird got picked off at .917
[14:37] {nemo} I'm out, bad feeling
[14:39] {nemo} Raven's fault
14:39] {Threei} Long Setup:  IWM  .65 break
14:39] {Threei}  If holds  .60
[14:39] {nemo} Where is our favorite corvus?
[14:40] {nemo} Oh, btw Raven, I have a book about your relatives
[14:42] {nemo} waited for that higher low, huh, Vadster?
14:42] {Threei}  stop reading my mind... trust me, it can't be good for your mental health
14:42] {Threei}  on second thought... what mental health
14:42] {Threei}  half out .72
14:43] {Threei}  stop to .64
[14:43] {nemo} I read the chart...your mind is a conundrum wrapped in an enigma surrounded by a question of a moat
14:44] {Threei}  and all that is in chrono-synclastic infundibulum
[14:44] {ese} reversal
[14:44] {nemo} actually I think the drunk Brit said something akin to that about Communist Russia
[14:44] {nemo} or was it women?
[14:45] {dptl} and i thought i know some
14:45] {Threei}  offering 1/4 more .77
[14:45] {nemo} well, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory on that one
[14:45] {nemo} yeah, Churchill
[14:46] {nemo} "I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma;
14:46] {Threei}  ... scalpers win again
14:46] {Threei}  rinse... crap
14:50] {Threei}  great, now it proceedes right to the swcond target
[14:51] {nemo} boy did I have the bottom
14:52] {Threei}  hopefully remaining two days go better, or this will officially be a the toughest week of the year
[14:52] {nemo} earnings kick off in earnest next week
[14:52] {Will49} it must be me bringing bad luck :)
14:53] {Threei}  don't let it bother you... enjoy it
[14:53] {Will49} I am...just kidding
[14:54] {Will49} see the smiley face?
[14:54] {nemo} We are not amused
14:54] {Threei}  no, not really... being in consxtant contact with nemo makes me see scowls behind each and every smile
[14:55] {Will49} :):):)
[14:55] {nemo} mmmhhhh....think it's time to have my meds adjusted again
[14:55] {nemo} now I'm not a bad them the picture of bunny I sent you
[14:59] {nemo} shorted a little lulu at .19
[14:59] {nemo} stop above .30
[15:01] {nemo} oh oh
[15:01] {nemo} I suppose this could actually be a long to 56 area too
15:09] {Threei}  which way last hour
[15:09] {Will49} up-down-sideway
15:12] {Threei}  FCX
15:12] {Threei} Long Setup:  FCX  .25 break
15:12] {Threei}  If holds  .15
[15:15] {nemo} spy looking short here
15:16] {Threei}  wtf
[15:16] {nemo} whaddya mean?
15:16] {Threei}  whiever way you change your strategy, none's working
[15:16] {nemo} I caught the bottom and wussed
15:16] {Threei}  same here with IWM trade
15:17] {Threei}  rinsed second half
[15:17] {nemo} now spy came up and tested the 50 SMA and is dropping but holding trend
15:17] {Threei}  but FCX held the low ever since dropping first time after FOMC
15:17] {Threei}  even when SPY made new lows
15:17] {Threei}  isn't it an entry on a pullback?
[15:17] {nemo} yeah, but it's at the low right here
[15:18] {nemo} GDX above the lows
[15:18] {nemo} XLB is moving up
[15:19] {Will49} is FCX break .25 still on?
15:19] {Threei}  yes
[15:19] {Will49} Tks
15:19] {Threei}  never lost stop support
15:19] {Threei}  I just hate the way every trade struggles
15:19] {Threei}  where are my favorite "that was easy" trades
[15:19] {Will49} was concerned about your comments about pullback
[15:20] {Will49} thought you'd changed your mind
15:20] {Threei}  {nemo} as if he has anything to change
[15:25] {nemo} vwap on spy just above 134, one would think the don't want to close it below the whole.  At 79 area IWM you have the Monthly and Quarterly Pivots.
[15:25] {nemo} the market tank
15:25] {Threei}  sigh
15:26] {Threei}  The Week When Nothing Worked

15:27] {Threei}  no
[15:27] {dolores} OK
15:27] {Threei}  listless up and down
[15:28] {Will49} what's it all about Alfie?
15:28] {Threei}  just a lot of confusion and hesitation
[15:28] {nemo} cute
15:28] {Threei}  weill clear up soon

15:38] {Threei}  I mean, come on... breakout of .60 just MUST be a trap for longs, thne way today goes, right?
15:38] {Threei}  and FCX makes new lows
15:39] {Threei}  and SLV can't break ,25
[15:39] {nemo} wait until it get's to .70 and see how you feel ab out it
15:40] {Threei}  Invalidated
15:40] {Threei}  but yes, looking for diff trigger
15:42] {Threei}  let's try .65 break if stays under .70
15:43] {Threei}  invaliated
[15:43] {nemo} .70 is vwap
[15:43] {nemo} .76 is old support
[15:43] {dolores} FCX long with stop at .10?
15:44] {Threei}  I don't really like it..
[15:44] {dolores} not now
