Aug .09 2012

Another low volume boring day, but we again squeezed some profits out of whatever slim pickings were there. Overall, steady performance during typical August week.

[10:15] {Threei}  how about that logic, eh?
[10:15] {Will49} White House not gonna be happy with those numbers

[10:48] {Threei}  Experienced traders lead customers through an intensive 16-day boot camp, where they share the secrets of their cogent system for analyzing each opportunity they encounter.
[10:48] {Will49} if you buy now, you get eight extra days
[10:49] {Threei}  ok, see you in 4+16 = 20 days
[10:49] {Threei}  hope I get extra boots to take home

[12:56] {dino} gj
[12:56] {Threei}  (DE) German govt said to be considering idea of a German referendum on the EU as a way to solidify political support for more centralized European govt ("more Europe") - German press
[12:57] {nemo} well, that would be irrelevant to the Supreme Court decision
[12:57] {nemo} I was thinking....I know scary
[12:58] {dolores} nice surprise if referendum goes wrong!!!
[12:58] {nemo} Anybody remember Malthus?
[12:59] {nemo} I think the economy may have reached it's Malthusian moment
[12:59] {Threei}  yes
[12:59] {jackharry} It wont matter, they will simply keep having the referendum until they get the answer they want, thats what they usually do when the people have the temerity to give the wrong answer
[12:59] {Threei}  dolores, I think it's win-win for them
[13:00] {Threei}  they get yes, they can do whatever they want
[13:00] {Threei}  they get no, they may get out of it if keeping it together proves impossible and lay the blame on voters, or they can do what jack said
[13:01] {jackharry} Denmark, France, Republic of Ireland, they have all given "wrong" answers in referendums in the past, they simply make a load of dire threats as to what will happen to scare the people and then hold the referendum again to get the "right" result
[13:01] {Threei}  exavtly
[13:01] {jackharry} Democracy at its best
[13:02] {Threei}  it's democracy as long as you vote as they want :)
[13:02] {Threei}  democracy run by communists... why does it sound so familiar
[13:03] {Threei}  oh wait... I already voted every few years in a system with one party and one candidate
[13:03] {Threei}  and they would come to you door and knock on it if you haven't voted
[13:03] {nemo} Plu ca change, Plu c'est la meme chose
[13:03] {Threei}  and you better say "oh, just coming out to vote"
[13:03] {jackharry} Well, at least you got a choice of at least one, nobody votes for the EU Commission
[13:04] {cc_8} that means, the more it changes, the more it stays the same
[13:04] {Threei}  well, choice of one... :)
[13:04] {nemo} no we don't nobody votes for the BIlderberg group
[13:04] {Threei}  with no choice of whether to vote at all
[13:04] {nemo} give 8 ball a gold star
[13:05] {Threei}  then of course you can come out and say out loud "this is a farse, I am not going to go for it"
[13:05] {Threei}  and disappear in Siberia forever
[13:05] {nemo} cutting trees for the glory of the proletariat
[13:05] {Threei}  or mental institution
[13:05] {Will49} we have a greedocracy now
[13:05] {nemo} that was Zhukov
[13:05] {nemo} Zhukov's line
[13:06] {Threei}  The article speculates that a referendum could also be used to enact a new German constitution that would be geared toward European integration, or it could be turned into a push for simultaneous referendums across Europe to approve expanded EU powers.
[13:07] {nemo} yep...coh was weak
[13:08] {nemo} next stop .25 area

[13:36] {cipher} tza -.07
[13:47] {nemo} spy looks like breakout
[14:13] {Threei} Long Setup:  TNA  .70 break
[14:13] {Threei}  If holds  65
[14:21] {Threei}  have you ever seen TNA taking this long to move 5 cents?
[14:22] {dino} cov impv .49 ave, +.51
[14:22] {dino} calling it day day, falling asleep here
[14:22] {Threei}  wtg
[14:23] {dino} ty
[14:25] {scottie} target Vad?
[14:25] {Threei}  I'd think .85 - .90 should be reachable
[14:28] {Threei}  half out
[14:28] {Threei}  stop to .69
[14:43] {nemo} SPY-I hate when charts start looking like that
[14:43] {Threei}  we need to announce a contest for entries starting "I hate it when..." for the next week
[14:43] {Threei}  "what grinds my gear" type of thing
[14:44] {nemo} I'm bored, think I'll short fio
[14:44] {nemo} rax
[14:44] {nemo} sorry
[14:46] {Threei}  Behavioral Finance ?@victorricciardi
[14:46] {Threei}  Half of Americans Die With Almost No Assets
[14:46] {Threei}  hmmm
[14:46] {nemo} can't take it with ya'
[14:46] {Threei}  that's a bad wealth management
[14:46] {nemo} shorting mnst small
[14:46] {Threei}  right way is to die with none at all and a few mil in debt
[14:46] {nemo} bidd .90
[14:47] {nemo} cmon
[14:47] {nemo} yuep
[14:47] {nemo} stop to b/e
[14:48] {nemo} bidding .75
[14:48] {nemo} yep
[14:48] {nemo} whoa
[14:48] {nemo} forgot to short fio
[14:48] {nemo} stop to .70ish
[14:50] {nemo} ok, top of this candle
[14:50] {nemo} here goes spy
[14:50] {nemo} out mnst
[14:51] {nemo} mnst could go to 53
[14:52] {nemo} but that spy breakouot is happening now it looks like
[14:54] {nemo} mnst lows again, should have kept that .80ish stop
[14:56] {nemo} mnst....ahhhh...tissue please Vad
[14:56] {dolores} TNA not following?
[14:56] {Threei}  ?
[14:57] {Threei}  14:28] {Threei} half out
[14:57] {Threei}  [14:28] {Threei} stop to .69
[14:57] {dolores} YES
[14:59] {dolores} panic starting MNST
[14:59] {nemo} AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
[14:59] {nemo} now I'm bawling
[15:00] {nemo} OMFG!!!
[15:00] {nemo} melodramatic...aren't I?
[15:04] {dolores} any support MNST?
[15:05] {nemo} 53.20
[15:10] {nemo} below that is the gap in January
[15:10] {dolores} stopped at entry
[15:11] {dolores} now up
[15:11] {dolores} if it breaks lows
[15:11] {dolores} it will break 53 I think
[15:14] {nemo} let's see if they get the bid to thicken up and then throw a brick though it
[15:14] {nemo} why would anybody want this though, on a Friday afternoon in August after a 10q filing
[15:15] {Threei} Long Setup:  FAS  .40 break hl
[15:15] {nemo} spy gap close coming
[15:16] {Threei}  If holds  .25
[15:20] {Threei}  (ES) S&P: Spain's rising bond spreads indicate growing investor concern
[15:20] {Threei}  you think?
[15:20] {Threei}  I want this guy's job...
[15:21] {nemo} I want to line up headline writers and shoot them in the hands
[15:21] {nemo} with a shotgun
[15:21] {Threei}  Fri, Aug 10: sunrise this morning indicated to location of East
[15:21] {Threei}  there... I added as much value as that guy
[15:22] {Threei}  half out FAS
[15:22] {scottie} +.10 on FAS ty Vad
[15:22] {Threei}  :)
[15:22] {Threei}  stop to .39
[15:23] {nemo} if mnst gets above .80 should get short covering
[15:23] {nemo} as a matter of fact, I would expect it
[15:23] {Threei}  NYSE volume 290M shares, about 26% below its three-month average
[15:23] {nemo} Yeah, read where this is a four year low in volume...duh
[15:24] {nemo} 2008, even 2007 was when the markets started to become unhinged
[15:24] {nemo} I remember March 2007 when the first cracks in the cmo's started to appear
[15:25] {nemo} mortgage provider stocks started selling off
[15:25] {nemo} nice they let .80 break on mnst and then slammed it back down
[15:26] {nemo} wow, visible book pretty thin on mnst
[15:28] {nemo} a tad risky, but iwm above .90 probably a long if spy holds
[15:28] {nemo} tna would be about .90 also
[15:32] {nemo} expecting good gap up on Monday
[15:32] {Threei}  Maaaa... nemo's predicting again!
[15:32] {nemo} it's the strength into the weekend
[15:33] {thomcbell} not to beat a dead horse - but what an odd 3 days -
[15:33] {nemo} plus, if you consider this aconsolidation week  in an upmove, it's the higher probability move
[15:33] {thomcbell} minute ranges
[15:33] {nemo} market hasn't sold off on bad news at all
[15:33] {thomcbell} indeed
[15:34] {nemo} ecb gives money to greece to give back to the ecb
[15:34] {thomcbell} in fact - buying dissappointment in the case of RL
[15:34] {nemo} the lunacy doesn't cause a tremor
[15:34] {nemo} we go up
[15:34] {nemo} yeah, most stocks with earnings sell offs were immediately bought
[15:35] {nemo} spy hit the low in first 15 minutes and hasn't looked back
[15:35] {thomcbell} did u buy mnst?
[15:36] {nemo} who, me, no
[15:36] {thomcbell} i kind of like it but no play
[15:37] {nemo} Friday afternoon in August after 3:30 is beyond my skill/comfort level
[15:39] {Threei}  OK guys, I guess it's weekend time
[15:40] {Beau} good weekend all
[15:40] {Threei}  we squeezed what we could out of this week
