Jan 13 2014

Catch of the Day, GM short - 5 cents risk, 30 cents reward. This is actually second short on this name today, first resulted in 20 cents profit. 

With that, and 1:3 on FB bounce, we finished positively even though with not as much profit as we would have liked, as a few rinses made some dent.

Session Time: Mon Jan 13 00:00:00 2014

01[08:52] {&Threei}  morning tick
[08:55] {Les} gm
[08:55] {fish_49} gm tick  gm Les  Gm Vad
[08:56] {fish_49} and Robbers
[08:56] {fish_49} US and Canadian dollars on the tun this morning
[08:56] {fish_49} the Yen woke up from a long hibernation.  for once has the most volume for Currency futures
[08:58] {Les}
[08:58] {Les} commentary on the US dollar worth reading
[08:59] {fish_49} thanks
01[09:00] {&Threei}  les, fish :)
[09:00] {Les} something I keep an eye on when the Swiss Franc finally gets punished for buying too many Euros
[09:02] {fish_49} the Swiss Franc and the Euro usually trade side by side.  I don't usually look at the SF because there is more volume in the Euro  usually
[09:03] {dino} gm
[09:04] {fish_49} Dino  GM

[09:14] {thomcbell} action was sneaky last week - very tight range but we closed high in the weeks range and the advancers beat decliners by a wide margin on friday best of week
[09:19] {nemo} Hey Dino, watch any football this weekend?
[09:20] {dino} yes, on saturday, say both games
[09:20] {nemo} I know I'm biased but given the Patriots' injuries this year, what Belichick has done is simply amazing
[09:21] {dino} yeah, who would've thought they'd turn into a running offense in the playoffs
[09:21] {thomcbell} unreal
[09:21] {nemo} They actually played that way for about the last 1/3 of the season
[09:21] {fish_49} Thanks for the help this weekend  Vad  I owe u a cup of coffee
[09:21] {ese} gm
[09:21] {nemo} punter goes down, so kicker takes over and Brady
01[09:21] {&Threei}  ese :)
[09:22] {dino} yeah, thats something
01[09:22] {&Threei}  np fish, let me know what you end up with
[09:22] {nemo} Brady said he hadn't done that since college
[09:22] {fish_49}
[09:22] {fish_49} coffee for u
01[09:23] {&Threei}  nah... that's Canon which I dislike, and it leaks
[09:23] {ese} We up here in the north west are rooting for the seahawks.....
[09:23] {fish_49} lol
[09:24] {dino} well, brady is a cool guy under pressure, sure he could do alot of things. one of the all time best imo
[09:24] {dino} just wish he was on jets
[09:24] {nemo} that seems to be the general consensus
[09:24] {nemo} did the musician say something?

[09:25] {nemo} or is it "ogle"?

[09:26] {robbers} I think the word is "appreciate."
[09:26] {ese} have 3 favorite teams down there......Packers, Cowboys and Seahawks
[09:26] {nemo} funny though, at my age, I see a beautiful woman, I appreciate it, but this neon sign flashes in my mind "Trouble!"
[09:26] {robbers} For her maybe.
[09:27] {ese} remember watching the packers in the first 3 superbowls as a kid....awesome....been a packer fan the longest
[09:27] {nemo} nah, I mind my P's and Q's   I also find myself thinking more like a parent, which scares the bejeezus out of me
[09:27] {ese} ba dap bap!!!!! nice one robbers
[09:27] {RonS} "there is no woman, however beautiful, that some guy, somewhere, thanks God he is away from her"  Dennis Rodman
