Apr 10 2013

And just like that, we are back to a winning streak with a very solid performance; GDX gave two short entries for 1:3 and 1:2, C gave long for 1:2 etc etc. We also had a little discussion about some trading philosophy with quotes from A Taoist Trader. Scroll through the log to see nice trades and good conversation  And some not very funny jokes, as usual.

01[11:37] {Threei}  - The FOMC minutes were released early this morning at 09:00ET, instead of 14:00ET, after the accidental disclosure of the information yesterday afternoon. The minutes themselves exposed the lively debate over the right time to begin winding down Fed asset purchases. All but a few officials agreed that the program should continue until at least midyear. Some said buying should taper down around midyear, others felt buying should continue through September before tapering, and a few wanted buying to continue at its current pace into 2014.

01[12:49] {Threei}  more than that, I see gold going much lower than they say
01[12:50] {Threei}  although they also made a reservation for that:
01[12:50] {Threei}  �In fact, should our expectation for lower gold prices continue to prove correct, the fall in prices could end up being faster and larger than our forecast,� they said.
[12:50] {thomcbell} LOKS LIKE 1150

[12:52] {Les} when?
01[12:52] {Threei}  drop from 150 to 40
[12:53] {cc_9} Anyone trading SRPT today ?
[12:53] {cc_9} Some profit taking fro that ramp yesterday
01[12:53] {Threei}  not me
01[12:54] {Threei}  wake up Les... you are not THAT young not to remember the great oil pump and dump
[12:55] {Les} don't rmember the particulars
01[12:55] {Threei}  gimme a sec
[12:55] {nemo} his age has nothing to do with it Vad
[12:55] {Les} was just beginning to pick up the first pieces off of Cara at the time
01[12:57] {Threei}  A similar story arose in the oil price explosion with price reaching $150 in the summer of 2008 only to drop back to under $40 � all the while experts predicted it going higher and higher.
01[12:58] {Threei}  A Taoist Trader, pg 148
01[12:58] {Threei}  now, pg 181 for some details
01[12:59] {Threei}  let�s look at the action of a trader who ignores such signs. Convinced that favorable price action will continue, he ignores the first signs of a problem. To help visualize such a situation, let�s recall a very recent example � peak of the oil prices in the summer of 2008 at $147.27. All kinds of prognoses for the trend to continue were made everywhere with price targets at $200, $300 etc.
01[12:59] {Threei}  Price however started declining. By itself, it wouldn�t be a reason to exit the trade � no trend goes in a straight line without pullbacks. However, a series of lower highs and lower lows made against the backdrop of calls for a further run-up was a strong warning sign.
01[12:59] {Threei}  This is where that extremely damaging emotional cycle started developing for those who ignored early signs of troubles. While the retreat from the high was relatively small (about $22 over first two weeks), it was easy to ignore. In a month, it dropped to $112 - $35 decline.
01[13:00] {Threei}  Such cut in profits was harder to accept, and many traders started convincing themselves that they had to sit it out, rationalizing their decision by all kinds of fundamental explanations for the inevitable and imminent price rise. In about two months, the price broke below $100.
01[13:00] {Threei}  Vicious destruction of hopes and trading accounts continued for a few months more, taking the price under $40 (!) before a rebound finally started. Curiously enough (although not at all unpredictable), as the price declined that much, negative predictions became overwhelming, calling for even lower prices and causing desperate holders to bail out � close to eventual bottom, of course.
01[13:00] {Threei}  end
[13:00] {Les} C flagging for breakout beyond .10?
[13:01] {Les} will look that chapter up again

01[13:36] {Threei}  I am a regular at your trading log, and I was glad to see a losing day you posted yesterday. Don't get me wrong, I don't enjoy someone ele's losses, but your consistent winning made me feel depressed a little. Glad to see you are a human too.
01[13:36] {Threei}  I answered:

01[13:41] {Threei}  come on... it's not that thickly veiled :)
[13:42] {Les} given his depression vis a vis your winning, I'm guessing his outlook on life is tainted
[13:42] {Les} your response makes me think of Monty Python
01[13:43] {Threei}  I think his depression refernce was half-joke
[13:44] {Les} oh

01[13:53] {Threei}  GDX does show signs of reversal, but SLW is weaker
[14:03] {Les}
01[14:03] {Threei}  this is it, thanks :)
[14:11] {Les} 2H SLW stop
[14:20] {cc_9} This market knows no gravity.
01[14:23] {Threei}  haven't you heard? gravity has been abolished by Fed
01[14:23] {Threei}  come on man, get with the program
[14:23] {Les} temporarily suspended
[14:33] {Les} once again surprised by today's action. Ignored C .20/.25 setup. Market struggling
01[14:36] {Threei}  why suprised?
[14:37] {Les} wary of squeeze as new HoD was being tested. Price collapsed bit too easily.
[14:37] {Les} or eager longs were just given a good rinsing can't tell
01[14:39] {Threei}  I guess I do very little assuming or expectatikon... thus not getting surprised easily
[14:41] {Les} C squeezed me a few sessions earlier so just wary at this point
[14:41] {cc_9} Fed borrows @ 0%
[14:42] {cc_9} banks borrow at o %
[14:42] {cc_9} fed prints 85B a month
[14:42] {cc_9} treasury at near 0%
[14:42] {cc_9} fed balance sheet exceeds 3T
01[14:42] {Threei}  going somewhere with that? :)
[14:42] {cc_9} markets move on rumors and announcements
[14:42] {cc_9} money can evaporate a la corzine
[14:42] {cc_9} stock market and not called Casino
[14:43] {cc_9} I am not sure what is what anymore.
01[14:43] {Threei}  no one is
[14:43] {cc_9} :(
01[14:43] {Threei}  thus taking it one day at a time... stocking ammos and whiskey
[14:43] {dino} news doesn't matter, it's the reaction that counts
[14:44] {nemo} iwm new highs wtf
[14:44] {cc_9} From my cold drunken hands.
[14:44] {Les} I have had years of difficulty grappling with these fundies and the market. Dumping the fundies has helped greatly
01[14:44] {Threei}  here is an angle that will help grasp what's happening
[14:45] {nemo} thanks for the reminder cc
01[14:45] {Threei}  this is not about market fundamentals, or technicals, and not even about market at all,
01[14:45] {Threei}  this also not about monetary policies,
01[14:45] {Threei}  all this stuff is derivative.
01[14:46] {Threei}  What it really is about is desintegration of the fabric of scoeity
01[14:46] {Threei}  society too
[14:46] {nemo} plenty of 5.56 on hand
01[14:46] {Threei}  You guys lived for too long in too stable society, it's hard for you to imagine its collapse
01[14:47] {Threei}  For those who lived through Soviet empire annihilation is much easier to envision
[14:47] {cc_9} People need to forget the term Debt, the US does not need to pay its debts, and it won't ever pay its debts.
[14:47] {cc_9} What you said is correct, its not about the markets, that is only the surface, the iceberg is much bigger under the water.
01[14:47] {Threei}  well, no paying it is a form of collapse, because funding will disappear
01[14:48] {Threei}  music plays while someone buys bonds
[14:48] {cc_9} Funding will not disapear, China, Saudi etc...have to keep on buying.
01[14:48] {Threei}  oh but it will
[14:48] {dino} problem w/the debt is it takes greater part of budget to support it
[14:48] {cc_9} They have nowhere else to sit their cash in, they are already pot commited, we just keep printing IOUs
01[14:48] {Threei}  when no one but Fed remained to do that, money will lose underklying confidence
[14:49] {nemo} things get more interesting when other currencies rise, or fall, as is the case with the euro
[14:49] {Les} ITS THE C WORD!
[14:49] {Les} probably the most intelligent thing Kaimu has ever said
[14:49] {Will49} so...this has been going on for 70 years, why not another 70 years?
[14:49] {cc_9} Our only hope is that bitcoin reaches $1,000 per btc lol.
01[14:49] {Threei}  nothing lasts forever... but yes, Euro collapse will help
[14:49] {dino} cc9, w/respect, look at greece, etc. sure you can print but rates become prohibitive
[14:49] {nemo} Les judging intelligence...the Rapture is at hand
01[14:50] {Threei}  as USD will remain the skinniest girl in a fat camp
[14:50] {nemo} with a gag reflex
[14:50] {cc_9} dino, I do agree, but the US is at the top of the scheme, the rest is fully aware that the game must go on.
[14:50] {dino} and bitcoin will be made illegal as soon as govt sees it working to y-pass taxes
01[14:50] {Threei}  this is very true
[14:50] {cc_9} They will keep pumping oil, they will keep using its proceeds to buy toxic debt
01[14:50] {Threei}  but it's about the last chair...
[14:50] {cc_9} Yes
01[14:51] {Threei}  the music WILL stop
[14:51] {nemo} Gawd I want to short this, but so does everybody else
01[14:51] {Threei}  don't
01[14:51] {Threei}  this bubble is far from bursting
[14:51] {Les} and then WHAT? that's what scares me
[14:51] {Les} once the music stops..
[14:52] {cc_9} nemo, I know people who went belly up shorting the markets since 2009, starting a new cycle every 6 months.
01[14:52] {Threei}  oh come on
[14:52] {nemo} they make me dictator
[14:52] {cc_9} Never under estimate the power of easy printing.
01[14:52] {Threei}  look at USSR
[14:52] {nemo} run by Pahan
01[14:52] {Threei}  fell apart, and what? life stopped?
[14:52] {nemo} for many, yes
[14:52] {Les} purchasing power, yes
01[14:52] {Threei}  new structures will appear
[14:52] {nemo} lower high spy
[14:53] {Les} 3 min MACD green not touching this
[14:53] {nemo} I'll line up all the liberals...head to head
01[14:53] {Threei}  ask average Russian whether they want to go back to USSR times
01[14:53] {Threei}  average, not the 70 years old who never saw anything different and couldn't adjust to new life
[14:54] {nemo} but now it's a feudal system there...the lords and the serfs
[14:54] {cc_9} i know for a fact Deripaska does not want to go back.
01[14:54] {Threei}  lol
[14:54] {nemo} Captain in the FSB makes $1200 month
[14:54] {nemo} live off that in Moscow
[14:54] {nemo} GFL
01[14:55] {Threei}  he adds in bribes
[14:55] {nemo} I don't know, this one works for Pahan
01[14:55] {Threei}  then he gets a lot of perks
[14:55] {nemo} nah Tzarina a bit on cheap side
[14:57] {Les} great, so I need to become state paid thug to get on in new life
[14:57] {nemo} well, you got the knuckle dragging part down
[14:57] {Les} not everyone is like Nemo... sadistic
[14:57] {nemo} at least I'm artistic about it
[14:58] {nemo} as I've said, my mission in life is to help souls transition
[14:58] {nemo} to the next one
[14:58] {Will49} and humble too, nemo
[14:58] {nemo} facts are facts
[14:59] {Will49} sometimes facts seem like opinion
[14:59] {nemo} could you be more specific?
[14:59] {Will49} no i'm a generalist
[15:00] {nemo} ahhh...
[15:00] {Les} a liberal Nemo. line him up with the rest
[15:00] {Will49} liberal? if you only knew!
[15:00] {nemo} excuuuuseee me!!!!
[15:01] {nemo} I'm quite liberal, have I ever commented negatively on interspecies marriages...I mean your wife married you...
[15:02] {Will49} you talkin' to talkin to me???
[15:02] {backman} said to a guy "take my wife, please"....he replied "been there....done that"

[15:03] {backman} :=)....but my tag line is orig
[15:03] {Will49} OK
[15:03] {Will49} betcha half the guys here had to google Henny Youngman
[15:03] {nemo} not really, that's just a corrollary to "Hey bud, got any naked pictures of your wife?"   Well, no...."Want any?"
[15:04] {Will49} LOL
[15:04] {backman} what's Google, sonny?
[15:04] {Will49} :)
[15:04] {Will49} just trying to keep you guys grounded in the past

01[15:11] {Threei}  Torquemada... now, here is a name I haven't heard in decades
