June 19 2013

FOMC days are notoriously difficult to trade, right? Well, that puts that special shine on our today's 100% performance with 5 wins out of 5 triggered trades. 3 1:2ers, 3 trades on GDX and 2 on GLD. Can't complain.

Session Time: Wed Jun 19 00:00:00 2013
[08:53] {+cc_9} Good morning folks / Vad
[08:57] {_jackindbox} good morning all
01[08:58] {&Threei}  morning guys
[09:05] {+cc_9} Bullish GDX here Vad for a scalp ?
[09:05] {+cc_9} little reversal, maybe 27.70ish
01[09:05] {&Threei}  pre-market?
[09:05] {+cc_9} at open
[09:05] {+cc_9} gold opening slightly higher from its close
01[09:06] {&Threei}  providing setup is the same as now...
[09:06] {+cc_9} Gold miners as well (ABX GG NEM)
[09:06] {+cc_9} Big action after 2PM of course, but I am thinking a little reversal on the miners in the AM. too big a drop
01[09:06] {&Threei}  bounce is quite weak though, if you consider yesterday's carnage
[09:07] {+cc_9} Yup, thats why I'm thinking max 27.70 which is only ~$0.20 from potential open pps
[09:07] {+cc_9} dead cat bounce only is what I'm looking for
[09:08] {+cc_9} GDX / SPY both opening flat

[12:10] {nemo} he wanted to do more fusion stuff
[12:11] {nemo} yeah, instead of ELP it would have been HELP
[12:11] {jdetente} Don’t know why he wouldn;t want to play with Mitch Mitchell
[12:11] {jdetente} he was a great drummer
[12:11] {jdetente} continue to play that is
[12:11] {nemo} yeah, but Palmer was as good as there was
[12:11] {jdetente} personally prefer Mitchell’s style...
[12:12] {nemo} bfd..
[12:12] {jdetente} that prog stuff could be a bit overblown
[12:12] {nemo} oh yeah
[12:12] {jdetente} although I went through that phase as a teenager

[13:26] {Les}
[13:26] {jdetente} lol
01[13:29] {&Threei}  - The Fed is expected today to attempt to calm markets after the recent bout of volatility over uncertainty about tapering plans. Expectations are that the Fed will take this opportunity to provide greater clarity on conditions that will trigger tapering and to stress that tapering is not equivalent to tightening policy and is not a triggering event for the exit strategy from its highly accommodative stance.
[13:31] {nemo} fdx broke, let's see
[13:31] {+cc_9} 30mins to go

01[14:16] {&Threei}  don't tell me no one took this one
[14:17] {Will49} stepped away fo a minute and bang...gone
[14:17] {Les} sorry dinner time here
[14:17] {jdetente} I got a partial Vad
[14:17] {jdetente} didn’t fill the lot
[14:17] {_jackindbox} it was at .30 and I was hoping for a slight pullback to the twenties......
[14:17] {Les} tried getting on tza 30 break missed that too
[14:17] {stevw} was actually looking at a .20 entry and was surprised you weren't calling it - then it blew past me adjusting to the .25
[14:18] {Will49} anyway Vad...nice call

[14:21] {Will49} be good ese
[14:22] {stevw} got out of my TNA position just before 2 - don't know what to think of what ensued thereafter
[14:22] {+cc_9} not gambling here, not even worth it honestly
01[14:22] {&Threei}  nothing
01[14:22] {&Threei}  usual after-FOMC seesaw
[14:22] {+cc_9} gona wait for the Merchant's comments at 2:30PM conference
[14:22] {stevw} i think i would have shot myself and then celebrated a few minutes later, then shot myself again
01[14:23] {&Threei}  if you hold position into that you may get lucky is first spike is in your favor and if you manager to exit in time
01[14:23] {&Threei}  or you may not
[14:24] {stevw} it became a graphic illustration of that for me - thankfully not literal, but close enough to make a point
01[14:24] {&Threei}  or you get lucky if first spike is against your position but you can't exit in time and then it spikes in your favor and this time you manage to get out
01[14:24] {&Threei}  to make it succint - sit this crap out :)
[14:25] {Will49} with your crossed eyes glued toMirc so you don't miss a call :(
01[14:25] {&Threei}  succinter yet: sit out or crap out
01[14:25] {&Threei}  (US) PIMCO's Gross: Headline of the Fed statement is that "tapering has been deferred" - CNBC

01[14:30] {&Threei}  Ben starts singing
[14:31] {dino} pretty calm for fed day
[14:31] {robbers} Yeah, until Ben sneezes.
01[14:32] {&Threei}  (US) Fed Chairman Bernanke: FOMC continues to see US economy grow at a moderate pace; expect inflation to move back to 2% target over time
01[14:34] {&Threei}  (US) Fed Chairman Bernanke: FOMC has been reviewing exit principals in recent meetings, a "strong majority" believe Fed will not sell agency securities but let them roll off
01[14:38] {&Threei}  lol, market is bipolar
01[14:38] {&Threei}  just can't make this statement out
[14:39] {dino} ie, hold to maturity
[14:40] {jdetente} yup
[14:40] {nemo} this volume is impressive in spy
01[14:40] {&Threei}  holding to maturity is not the ultimate solution though... what happens next is
[14:41] {dino} they will gradually write them off
[14:41] {nemo} well, as they roll off the balance sheet shrinks
01[14:41] {&Threei}  will they expect issuer to make good, or will they roll them out?
01[14:41] {&Threei}  if rolling to the next term, on what conditions?
01[14:41] {&Threei}  roll off how, nemo?
01[14:41] {&Threei}  that's what I am gwetting at
[14:42] {nemo} when they mature
01[14:42] {&Threei}  yes, and?
[14:42] {dino} you may be over-thinking it vad. they can hold to maturity
01[14:42] {&Threei}  yes
01[14:42] {&Threei}  but
[14:42] {nemo} so they don't increase the supply in the market
01[14:42] {&Threei}  it's a bond
[14:42] {dino} get paid over time
01[14:42] {&Threei}  someone has to pay it off
01[14:42] {&Threei}  or it should get rolled to the next term
01[14:42] {&Threei}  so, what is going to happen?
[14:42] {dino} no difference than me holding a bond
01[14:43] {&Threei}  the matter is, bond issuer is not capable to pay off
[14:43] {dino} don't overthink it
01[14:43] {&Threei}  other than issue new bond, i.e, roll over
[14:43] {Les} GDX giving in
[14:43] {dino} in 30 years, sure, if not write it off
01[14:44] {&Threei}  if that's what they are sayong, then it amounts to: our solution is to put it off for decades
[14:44] {jdetente} almost in perpetuity
[14:45] {jdetente} 30 years is a long time
[14:45] {dino} aussi dollar dropping fast
[14:45] {Les} well as Kyle BAss was saying
[14:45] {Les} vis a vis Japan
[14:45] {Les} big bond holders plainly said
[14:45] {dino} vad, bingo. that is what they are implying
[14:45] {Les} "time to sell"
[14:45] {Will49} that's my theory....keep the wheel turning for generations
01[14:46] {&Threei}  won't work, I susoect
[14:46] {Les} until someone says not interested anymore
01[14:46] {&Threei}  suspect
[14:46] {jdetente} this will be passed on to the next generation
[14:46] {Will49} USA will "fix" anyone who dissents
[14:46] {jdetente} and so on
[14:46] {dino} it always is jd
01[14:46] {&Threei}  anyway... gold says "me not happy"
01[14:47] {&Threei}  my strong suspicion... bond buyers will revolt way before those maturity terms
[14:48] {Les} TLT crapping indexes too. which is right...

[15:07] {Les} In a letter to euro-zone leaders, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades has asked that the bailout package for his country be revisited. The effects on the island nation's economy have been much greater than expected, he writes. EU leaders are "puzzled."
01[15:08] {&Threei}  I don't see it as compelling play dp
[15:08] {dptl} ok
[15:09] {Les} stealing from depositors ain't the confidence signal they thought it would be
01[15:09] {&Threei}  lol
[15:10] {dino} didn't cypress deny that this morning?
01[15:10] {&Threei}  EU rejected their request
01[15:10] {&Threei}  then they said "oh, we didn't mean to revise the terms"
01[15:10] {&Threei}  so now EU is puzzled
01[15:10] {&Threei}  and rightfully so
01[15:11] {&Threei}  I would put it this way:
01[15:11] {&Threei}  anyone who isn't puzzled by the whole EU charade must be thoroughly confused
[15:12] {Les} Der Spiegel writing otherwise Dino
01[15:12] {&Threei}  (CY) Cyprus Govt official responds to reports Cyprus was seeking a different bailout, notes that Cyprus is fully committed to applying the terms of the previouls EU/IMF bailout- Not attempting to renegotiate the bailout agreement - Reminder: Earlier European officials noted there was to be no new bailout terms for Cyprus
01[15:13] {&Threei}  from this morning, 10:28 am
[15:13] {dino} so they asked, then refused, so deny
01[15:14] {&Threei}  and everyone is puzzled
01[15:14] {&Threei}  see? it's all very clear
[15:14] {nemo} Greenspan at his best
01[15:15] {&Threei}  - Approx 7% unemployment is consistent with the FOMC consensus belief that would be enough improvement in the labor market to end purchases [current FOMC projections suggest this will be sometime in the middle of 2014]. Notes 7% level is NOT a policy change, just a general consensus amongst the FOMC about what constitutes "substantial improvement." - Reiterates that there is no fixed plan on QE purchases, all depends on economic data. - If Fed were to adjust the unemployment threshold (6.5%) for rate policy, it would be downward not upward.
01[15:16] {&Threei}  look who is puzzled too:
01[15:16] {&Threei}  Higher interest rates are partially due to optimism about the economy and partially due to perceptions about Fed policy. Fed is somewhat puzzled by rising bond yields.
01[15:16] {&Threei}  see what I mean Will?
[15:16] {dino} the threshold this spring was 6.5
01[15:16] {&Threei}  bond market will revolt at some point, and there is nothihg Fed can do about it
[15:17] {Will49} yeah....
01[15:17] {&Threei}  if they are puzzled about it at this point when they seem to be in total control...
[15:17] {Will49} ..." at some point..."
[15:17] {Les} we will get taste of that in Japan and Europe first
01[15:17] {&Threei}  that's the thing
01[15:17] {&Threei}  Japan, China, EU - those are first
[15:18] {Les} sooner or later CHF/EUR peg is gonna get blown outta the water
01[15:18] {&Threei}  we aree safe for now, simply because we are the skinniest girl in the fat camp
01[15:18] {&Threei}  but when they eat all the fatties...
[15:18] {dino} now thats a mental picture
[15:18] {Les} wish I had $10k lying around to buy every dip in CHF/EUR
01[15:18] {&Threei}  we better use this delay to fix things
[15:18] {Will49} fat chance
