[10:58] {scottie} glmp s .35 ?
[10:58] {scottie} too spready, forget it
01[10:58] {Threei}  wrong symbol?

[11:12] {scottie} exc s .40 ?
01[11:13] {Threei}  rather .50 long, IMO
[11:13] {scottie} isn't it an inverse C&H ?
01[11:16] {Threei}  starts curving the wrong way for that, fade is more likely
[11:17] {scottie} in l .51
[11:27] {dino} out ecpg +.24 while away
[11:29] {scottie} half out
01[11:31] {Threei}  :)
[11:31] {Will49} :)
[11:31] {Will49} Guess we had better leave him alone
[11:31] {Will49} or he may not rush to help me next time
[11:32] {Will49} doing my best Bill Clinton impression: CC, ah feel your pain
01[11:32] {Threei}  maybe it's contagious
01[11:32] {Threei}  - The effect of the decent US October employment on risk assets has worn off rapidly and equities are in the red in mid-morning trading. The S&P500 had risen to its 50-day moving average just before the open, however it has turned around and given up gains in the first hour of trading. The greenback has strengthened notably as risk assets trade lower; EUR/USD had fallen from 1.2940 earlier in the European session to trade below 1.2850
[11:34] {Les} nice catch on EXC scottie
[11:34] {Les} vwap is .68 likely target
[11:36] {scottie} tks Les
[11:37] {scottie} stop .53
01[11:39] {Threei}  LOL... Citing Climate Change Mayor Bloomberg Endorses Obama
[11:40] {dino} idiots
[11:41] {Beau} vad,
[11:41] {Les} huh?!
[11:41] {Beau} Comment?
01[11:43] {Threei}  very unclear, Beau... I think they'll come up with some kind of compromise last minute
01[11:44] {Threei}  as they always do
01[11:45] {Threei}  and if not, it will all come down to that same end of the world which I intend to meet on Hawaii :)
[11:45] {Beau} but isn't "they" congress, not president, dem or rep
01[11:45] {Threei}  congress, yes
01[11:46] {Threei}  we don't even know its new composition after this election... how do you guess what they'll do about fiscal cliff
01[11:47] {Threei}  if one side gets majority in all branches and houses, it's one level of cooperation... if we see the same gridlock as last two years, another
[11:47] {scottie} out
01[11:47] {Threei}  why didn't we short FCS at 40 break?
01[11:47] {Threei}  FCX
[11:48] {Beau} we hope for working together but afraid continuing refusal to cross aisle
[11:48] {dino} you will not see compromise if obamination wins
[11:48] {dino} guy is sppiteful
01[11:49] {Threei}  totally
01[11:49] {Threei}  his disdain for the other side is palpable
[11:49] {dino} he's a big baby playig high school games
[11:50] {Beau} i respectfully disagree dino.  Reps have bragged about Obama bills being dead on arrival--no discussion.
[11:51] {Les} what does it matter? All white folk are going to hell anyway...
[11:51] {Beau} oh well, back to making money here.
01[11:51] {Threei}  actually, that happened later beau... after he torpedoed a few attempts at working together in first months of his term
[11:51] {dino} well he doesn't ask republicans for input (budgets, obamacare, etc)
01[11:51] {Threei}  remember his remark to Cantor?
01[11:51] {Threei}  "Elections have consequences, Eric... and I won"
[11:52] {dino} he thinks he's god
01[11:52] {Threei}  that's when they said "no cooperation anymore, we will work to make him one term president"
[11:52] {Beau} any different than Bush?  Or afraid Romney?
01[11:52] {Threei}  very different
[11:52] {Beau} Politics- winners get the spoils, losers whine
01[11:53] {Threei}  no pragmatism at all, pure ideology driven
[11:53] {Beau} where is ese, i need help
01[11:53] {Threei}  hehe
01[11:53] {Threei}  let's postpone till Monday :)
[11:53] {Beau} good
01[11:54] {Threei}  don't get me wrong, I am not enchanted with Romney
01[11:54] {Threei}  he is yet to prove he can do any good
01[11:54] {Threei}  but this guy already proven he does harm
[11:55] {dino} obama is a socialist, plain and simple. his ideas will ruin usa
[11:56] {nemo} US has been progressing in that direction for a long time.  Because we are the reserve currrency, we tax as if we're capitalist, and we spend as if we're socialists
01[11:57] {Threei}  nemo gets "right on the money" award of the day
[11:57] {dino} spending is the problem
[11:57] {nemo} well...manifestation of the problem
[11:57] {dino} cut everything 10% across the board
[11:57] {Beau} say this then suhut up.  look at Perry's Texas gov.  Must teach creationism along with evolution in schools.  Textbooks remove most positive referennces to minorities.  No federal $ for women's health but now say state can't afford to do so cut clinics.  On and on
[11:59] {dino} my comment beau, even though i'm republican, imo religion is ruining the world
01[11:59] {Threei}  well, you realize none of us suggests anything this radical, right?
[12:00] {dino} what they should do is tax religions, no more non-profit status
01[12:00] {Threei}  keep religion away from state policies, politics etc
[12:00] {dino} keep it away from everything
01[12:00] {Threei}  and religious fanatics from offices
[12:00] {Beau} dino YES.  but vad, get a rep pres and congress with major tea part help and these things will certainly be at least considered.
01[12:01] {Threei}  so, the problem is democracy :)
01[12:01] {Threei}  and spending is just a manifestation of it, as nemo indicated
[12:01] {dino} the world (here & over there) is falling apart because of bs "my god is better than yours", unbelievable in this day and age
01[12:01] {Threei}  ads soon as electorate realizes it can vote itself perks and free stuff...
01[12:02] {Threei}  it all goes downhill
[12:02] {Beau} bck to benevolent dictator with vad as dictator.
01[12:02] {Threei}  I am all for that
01[12:03] {Threei}  problem with benevolnet dictatorship is, next dictator is guaranteed to be a malevokent one :()
[12:03] {dino} the problem is if you make the rich poorer, the poor will also get poorer
01[12:04] {Threei}  but speaking of current choice... one is fervent ideolog on a marxist-meninist side. Another is moderate pragmatic with technocratic tendencies
01[12:04] {Threei}  to me, choice is clear
[12:05] {dino} indeed. when you praise chavez you know theres a problem
[12:06] {nemo} wow TNA down 75% of normal day's volume
01[12:07] {Threei}  yup, very low volume today
01[12:07] {Threei}  btw...
01[12:07] {Threei}  EXC
[12:07] {nemo}'s already done 75%
[12:07] {nemo} it's only noon
01[12:07] {Threei}  back to .40, and idea of breakdown this time looks plauisble
01[12:08] {Threei}  hmmm... I see half of volume
[12:08] {nemo} I've got 6.7 mil does approx 8 of late
01[12:08] {Threei}  I've got 4.5
[12:09] {nemo} mmmhhhh weird
01[12:09] {Threei}  yest 8.8
[12:14] {dino} catm hl l .15
[12:18] {Les} slw .70 b/d?
[12:18] {Les} ah its gone
01[12:19] {Threei}  I like it
[12:19] {Les} might be triple bottom
01[12:19] {Threei}  just keep it on a backburner
[12:19] {Les} right
01[12:19] {Threei}  if SPY bounce fizzles out, it can reestablish
01[12:39] {Threei}  EXC 1:1
01[12:40] {Threei}  anyone took?
[12:40] {Will49} no
[12:40] {Les} zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
01[12:42] {Threei}  LOL... "long time no tweet"
[12:43] {Les} it's a brave new world
01[12:45] {Threei}  electoral college count:
01[12:46] {Threei}  the president can reasonably count on 237 Electoral College votes, while Romney can count on 206
01[12:46] {Threei}  Eight states, with a total of 95 Electoral College votes, remain toss-ups and will determine the winner: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin.
01[12:46] {Threei}  Florida and Virginia are absolute must-win states for the Romney campaign. If the president wins either, the election will be his.
01[12:47] {Threei}  If he can win those two states, Romney will then have to win either Ohio or Wisconsin to stay in the game.
01[12:48] {Threei}  Ohio is the bigger prize with 18 Electoral College votes but may be a bit more difficult for Romney to carry.
01[12:48] {Threei}  Wisconsin, with its 10 Electoral Votes, is close enough that both parties' presidential and vice presidential candidates have visited the state in recent days. If Romney can win the Badger State after losing Ohio, he would still need to win Colorado and either Iowa or Nevada to win the election.
01[12:49] {Threei}  It appears that the Democrats are likely to retain control of the Senate and Republicans to keep control of the House.
[12:51] {Les} IWM looks like its coiling up
01[12:55] {Threei}  SLW bck on watch
01[12:56] {Threei}  too bad I missed consolidation above .80, that was a good shorting point
01[12:56] {Threei}  but I am drifting in and out of pleasant coma
01[12:57] {Threei}  strongly suspect will sent me some of pieces of bc flag
[12:57] {Will49} aha
01[12:57] {Threei} Short Setup: SLW  .70 break
01[12:57] {Threei}  If holds  .80
01[12:58] {Threei}  SPY loss of .50 would start serious panic
01[12:59] {Threei}  or, to irritate nemo properly, cascade
[12:59] {Les} waterfall u mean?
[13:00] {nemo} finies holding trend
01[13:00] {Threei}  yes but for some reason nemo is twitching hearing "cascade"
[13:01] {Les} bunny boy?
[13:01] {robbers} GM
[13:01] {Les} what's the problem
01[13:01] {Threei}  wow
01[13:01] {Threei}  hi robbers
[13:01] {Les} hi robbers
01[13:01] {Threei}  late night or what
01[13:02] {Threei}  (US) NJ Gov Christie signs order to ban homeowner deductibles from being imposed by insurance companies following Hurricane Sandy - financial press- Order signed by Governors in NY, NJ, and Connecticut, claimed that the Hurricane did not make landfall as a Hurricane, which would exempt homeowners from the use of deductibles by insurance companies (which could range from 1-5% of the home value)

01[13:21] {Threei}  CAT, my sympathies are on a short side
[13:22] {robbers} Did I miss anything this morning?  (expecting a snide comment from nemo)
01[13:22] {Threei}  yes... nice day
[13:22] {nemo} I'm not in my usual swing of things
01[13:22] {Threei}  slowish but solidly positive
[13:23] {robbers} Time for nemo to say that the slow trading matches my humor.
[13:23] {nemo} hell I even let Will slide on a pitch down the middle
01[13:23] {Threei}  we got cipher back from the black hole of NY blackout
01[13:23] {Threei}  tbell is stilllost in cyberspace
[13:23] {scottie} in .53
[13:23] {robbers} Great, assume; you personally rescued him.
01[13:24] {Threei}  no, I commissioned Cristie
01[13:24] {Threei}  he carried him on his back to safety
[13:25] {Les} Thinking cypher can carry Cristie on taxes paid on AAPL and TNA...
[13:25] {nemo} fib retrace and vwap on finnies
01[13:25] {Threei}  but I made a mistake sending Brown to find tbell... he as usual does "helluva job"
[13:26] {nemo} bonds showing a bit of weakness
[13:26] {Will49} Vad lol
[13:51] {scottie} half out, finally
[13:51] {Will49} took a while eh?
[13:53] {scottie} yeah

[14:05] {scottie} wmb s 33 ?
[14:05] {Les} some capitulation vol. in indexes, yet lvs holds
01[14:08] {Threei}  not sure about WMB, needs a few min colnsolidation
[14:08] {scottie} ok
[14:13] {scottie} long .11
01[14:29] {Threei}  LVS slowly worms its way to 1:1
[14:32] {scottie} out -.12
[14:35] {Les} wow lvs
[14:35] {Les} SLW. wanna try again?
01[14:36] {Threei}  (US) Fed's Williams: Fiscal Cliff likely to be resolved with some austerity measures; current policies are helping to promote growth and hiring- No signs that stimulus is pushing up prices - Forecasts 2012 GDP at 1.75%, 2013 GDP at 2.5%, 2014 GDP at 3.5% - Notes the FOMC could purchase additional bonds beyond mortgages

01[14:42] {Threei}  luckily on a slow day you can get away with three attempts to type the symbol right
01[14:43] {Threei}  btw, next week has another guilty pleasure event, aside of election porn
01[14:43] {Threei}  new Bond movie
[14:43] {Les} ooh yeh
[14:45] {dino} that crus looks like its gap filling from august, on a big beat and raise
[14:46] {Les} SBUX is a 15 min bubble breaker, but scottie got it at the right moment
[14:48] {Les} speaking of which
[14:49] {Les}
[14:50] {Les} here's yesterday's ABC reversal
[14:50] {Les} logging all of em. wanna extract some trigger information from them all, if it's statistically there

01[15:26] {Threei}  good percentage in your finds, scottie
01[15:27] {Threei}  it's so amazing to observe this progress in jjust a few short months
[15:27] {scottie} 4 on 5 today :)
[15:27] {nemo} should be opening his own room anytime now
[15:27] {dino} gj scottie
[15:27] {scottie} tks
01[15:28] {Threei}  mid-summer, you were looking at these same stocks, charts and signals as today
[15:28] {Will49} Scottie...I admire you taking your own trades so early on
01[15:28] {Threei}  but the difference in what you see is nothing short of awesome
[15:28] {scottie} it's been 6 months now
[15:29] {scottie} And I'm confident I'll end up making money, lol
[15:29] {scottie} I still havent had yet a profitable monts, but losses are smaller every month
[15:30] {Will49} Have you been trading "live" for 6 months
[15:30] {scottie} I hope november will be my first profitable one
[15:30] {scottie} yes will¸
01[15:30] {Threei}  look also in internal stats
[15:30] {Will49} Excellent!
01[15:30] {Threei}  as in:
01[15:30] {Threei}  how many winning trades vs losing ones, month to month; how big winners are vs losers
[15:31] {scottie} October was profitable trading wise, but commissions killed me
01[15:31] {Threei}  this will show you which particular tendencies need to be corrected
[15:32] {scottie} I keep breathing during pullbacks now :)
01[15:32] {Threei}  thats' excessive luxury
01[15:33] {Threei}  the notion that humans need oxygen is deeply mistaken
[15:33] {scottie} I'm still trading small quantities, 400 sh on Vad's trades and 200 on mine
01[15:33] {Threei}  and breathing is overrated
[15:33] {nemo} alcohol though...
01[15:33] {Threei}  right

[15:36] {Will49} then bore me to death
01[15:36] {Threei}  look how smooth and profitable these boring days are
[15:36] {nemo} except when you have to get stitches from splitting your chin
01[15:36] {Threei}  true
01[15:36] {Threei}  but I make a good use of a pillow tied up to my chin
[15:36] {scottie} I love those slow trades, a lot less stressful
[15:37] {Will49} amen
[15:37] {dino} glad to see it working scottie
[15:37] {scottie} tks dino
[15:38] {scottie} My ultimate goal is to become you
