01[10:03] {&Threei}  damage control in full blast mode by dudley-dovie:
01[10:03] {&Threei}  (US) Fed's Dudley (dove, voter): Initial rate hikes are a long way off, could arrive well after 6.5% unemployment level is crossed; economy may diverge significantly from FOMC forecast- Recent market expectations for an earlier rate rise are "quite out of sync" with the statements and expectations of the FOMC - If labor market conditions and economic growth were less favorable than FOMC's outlook, asset purchases would continue at a higher pace for longer.
[10:04] {Will49} back-peddle...back-peddle

[15:41] {nemo} ahhh
[15:41] {nemo} I keep it on "select fire" though
01[15:42] {&Threei}  can you switch it to semi auto and aim at GDX?
[15:42] {nemo} select fire is semi-auto, auto is automatic
01[15:42] {&Threei}  ok... just do it already
01[15:43] {&Threei}  if you can add grenade launcher, I won't mind terribly
[15:43] {nemo} frankly, I was thinking sentry technique
01[15:43] {&Threei}  flamethrower won't hurt either
[15:43] {nemo} I'm more of a precision guy myself
01[15:43] {&Threei}  bayonette?
[15:43] {nemo} I was thinking of something a bit more ergonomic, but that will work
01[15:44] {&Threei}  GLD starts final descent into 8th circle of inferno
01[15:44] {&Threei}  catch up GDX
[15:44] {nemo} ironically, rather cold
[15:44] {jdetente} well GDX does have on fur boots for a reason
01[15:44] {&Threei}  lol
[15:45] {RonS} jolly good...U.K. says fields of shale gas in northern England twice as large as previously estimated |
01[15:46] {&Threei}  oil is moribound
[15:46] {Alexs} no panic today
01[15:47] {&Threei}  no? :(
01[15:47] {&Threei}  but we love it so much
[15:51] {nemo} I think it's sublime
01[15:52] {&Threei}  hopefully this is just an end of quarter window dressing action
01[15:52] {&Threei}  and as we roll over, panic returns
[15:53] {nemo} next week so screwed up though
01[15:53] {&Threei}  why?
01[15:54] {&Threei}  oh wait
01[15:54] {&Threei}  short week
01[15:54] {&Threei}  3 days
[15:54] {Alexs} 4
[15:54] {nemo} canada holiday monday, half day wednesday
01[15:54] {&Threei}  hmm?
01[15:55] {&Threei}  I thought half day Fri
[15:55] {Alexs} you don't work Monday?
[15:55] {nemo} Wednesday look it up
01[15:56] {&Threei}  NASDAQ site shows half day on Wed for 2012
01[15:56] {&Threei}  nothing for 2013
01[15:56] {&Threei}  so I'd assume, we have full day off on Thu and half day on Fri
[15:56] {nemo} mmmhhhh....well, o.k. then again  gonna' be a slow week
[15:56] {nemo} nah, you have to stay after school
01[15:56] {&Threei}  my suggestion is, let's take 4 days long weekend
01[15:56] {&Threei}  not bother with Fri
01[15:57] {&Threei}  work 3 days
[15:57] {Alexs} nemo is right July 3d half day
01[15:57] {&Threei}  where do you see it?
[15:57] {nemo} all those in favor say, "I!"
[15:58] {nemo}
01[15:58] {&Threei}  I suspect it's an error, it makes no sense
[15:59] {nemo} mmmhhhhh....
01[15:59] {&Threei}  ok guys, thank you all
01[15:59] {&Threei}  have a good evening, see you tomorrow
[16:00] {Will49} peace
[16:00] {Alexs} gn all
