Jan 29 2014

Very strong day with many plays working like charm for nice large moves. FB, C, GLD, CAT performed admirably, both before and after FOMC.

Session Time: Wed Jan 29 00:00:00 2014

[08:11] {nemo} I understand, it's the range
[08:12] {nemo} I think there might be a problem with the shortable list at the moment.  Many stocks that were shortable yesterday, aren't today
[08:14] {nemo} think about not being able to short the SPY
[08:14] {nemo} although, I've noticed the other indexes getting harder to short

[10:32] {fish_49} as far as security goes, they have a superior product  and it runs on itself not on top of another platform.
[10:32] {fish_49} If they could just make it prettier  people would buy their products

[10:59] {thomcbell} kors 80.01 long break if holding 79.91 hl
[10:59] {thomcbell} nope
[10:59] {thomcbell} still going to watch this one
[11:00] {nemo} getting in to Fed jerk around time
[11:04] {fish_49} My humble opinion is fed says no hike in rate.  Fed says  no decrease in spending yet.  Keep plugging away business as usual...Continue to monitor inflation rate
[11:05] {RonS} ...and that once Ben leaves Yellen will get a shave...
[11:06] {dino} i think they cut another 10b off this month, rates stay same, watching global issues
[11:06] {fish_49} Mr.  I mean Miss Yellen  don't want to make too much wave in her first month
01[11:06] {@Threei}  no hike is a given...
[11:06] {fish_49} I'm good with that Dino  I hope that is the case.  More cuts  should send message that economy is ready to stand on own
[11:06] {dino} don't bet on it, she's big time dove, may stop the 10b cuts
01[11:07] {@Threei}  it's taper more or pause that is in question
01[11:07] {@Threei}  she is so dove, actual doves consider her a whimp
[11:07] {dino} taper happened again under ben, next month yelping yellen does nothing
01[11:07] {@Threei}  and feel like bald eagles next to her
[11:08] {fish_49} we were at 85B  and last meeting we went  to 75B  right?  and your thinking  she may say go back up to 85B ?
01[11:08] {@Threei}  I doubt it fish
[11:08] {dino} janet "jackson" yellen "nasty if you please"
01[11:08] {@Threei}  she may stay at 75 though
[11:08] {dino} no fish, stay at whatever we are at today
01[11:08] {@Threei}  going back to 85 would be seen as extraordinary measure
01[11:09] {@Threei}  and can be counterpoductive as it might start panic
[11:09] {fish_49} yea  that is my take  stay or even another 10b cut in spending  but  last weeks drop was more than Fed fear  I'm thinking
[11:09] {dino} out db .05, +.30
[11:10] {fish_49} gj dino
[11:11] {dino} ty

[12:18] {nemo} Folks, if you are on DAS and something doesn't seem kosher, like today the "S" for shortable wasn't displaying for many stocks, and sometimes my gainer/loser grids don't completely populate, either reload  the .dsk file, a different one, or shutdown and restart the software completely

[13:32] {Les} yeh might be doing same trick as before
01[13:33] {@Threei}  (US) Preview: FOMC rate decision and policy statement due 14:00ET- The Fed is expected to continue to taper QE at today's policy meeting, the last of Bernanke's tenure. Another $10B reduction is on tap, split evenly between Treasuries and MBS, taking the QE program down to $65B. By not setting a fixed schedule for tapering, the committee has indicated that it still has flexibility to vary the pull back of the QE program, but members have made it clear that it would take some significantly bad news to pause or reverse the process.
01[13:34] {@Threei}  - Note that the new voting membership rotates in for today's FOMC meeting. The new slate has a more hawkish tilt, including Dallas Fed President Fisher and Philadelphia Fed President Plosser. Rotating out of the voting membership are some of last year's biggest doves, including St. Louis Fed President Bullard, and Boston's Rosengren, who dissented against the start of tapering at the last meeting

01[14:10] {@Threei}  hl
01[14:11] {@Threei}  Invalidated
[14:12] {dino} typically 15 minutes after announcement we get counter-mover
01[14:12] {@Threei} Short Setup: GLD  122 break
01[14:12] {@Threei}  If holds  .10
01[14:12] {@Threei}  risk is still high, half lot plays
01[14:13] {@Threei}  1:1
[14:15] {fish_49} Im out in full I grabbed it short at .07
[14:16] {Les} yeh a scalp here take it while its good

01[14:16] {@Threei}  yw
[14:17] {Les} bouncing around meaner than nemo's bunny on raisin sugar high
[14:17] {dino} db smr l .54
[14:18] {dino} strange, no counter bounce yet
[14:19] {Les} hmmm DB db?
[14:19] {fish_49} your expecting bounce up?
[14:20] {dino} down up down
[14:20] {dino} tomorrow a reverse of todays close
[14:20] {fish_49} the news was nothing more nothing less than what was expected.  I wonder what folks were expecting?
[14:20] {Joebi_Wan} the unexpected
[14:21] {thomcbell} based on how market traded in futures this am maybe if it wasnt a fed day it would have been a trend down day
[14:21] {dino} the force is w/you joebi
[14:21] {Joebi_Wan} :)
01[14:22] {@Threei}  a lot of analysts (those that post articles for a living) insisted that energing markets turmoil had to make fed back off
[14:22] {dino} kold crushed
[14:22] {Joebi_Wan} whoa
[14:22] {dino} how they back off when already cut back before the issues arose?
[14:23] {Les} yeh ain't Argentina in a bind...
[14:23] {dino} they/fed are reporting the past
01[14:23] {@Threei}  back off as in put taper on pause
[14:24] {dino} maybe they will in coming month, but they reported what they did last month
[14:24] {dino} last month all was well in world
01[14:24] {@Threei}  why last month?
01[14:25] {@Threei}  they cut further 10B
01[14:25] {@Threei}  to 65 a month
[14:25] {dino} they just said they cut 10b off
01[14:25] {@Threei}  yes, it's a second cut
[14:25] {fish_49} I guess I just don't get it.  We knew what was coming nothing shocking  so under normal circumstances we should rally
[14:25] {dino} missing my point, the past has happened, they can change mind going forward
[14:25] {dino} think of it this way...yesterday is dead
01[14:26] {@Threei}  ok... you are missing kine, those analysts posted prediction before today's announcement :)
01[14:26] {@Threei}  mine
[14:26] {dino} thats why they are called anal-ysts
01[14:26] {@Threei}  I am talking about expoectations before fomc
[14:26] {fish_49} lol
[14:26] {Joebi_Wan} lol
01[14:26] {@Threei}  and yes, they are clueless
01[14:26] {@Threei}  well, most of them
01[14:26] {@Threei}  like 99,5%
[14:27] {dino} bouncing +70
[14:27] {Les} DIA db looks great in the rear view mirror
[14:28] {dino} ung rocking
[14:29] {Joebi_Wan} you short kold dino?
[14:29] {dino} no, chicken on it, was thinking long, maybe in day or so
[14:30] {dino} altho it is pretty cold here
[14:31] {dino} out c .41, +.16
[14:34] {dino} cut too soon
01[14:36] {@Threei}  maybe not... wacthing for possible pullback entry
[14:36] {fish_49} on C?
01[14:36] {@Threei}  yes
[14:37] {Les} IN!!!!!
[14:37] {fish_49} huh?
[14:37] {dino} well we had about a 90 pt bounce
[14:38] {dino} out db .58, +.04, stuck
[14:38] {dino} maybe here comes the next down wave
[14:38] {dino} we had the down -220 the up -120, now....
[14:39] {Les} cha cha cha
[14:39] {dino} lol
[14:39] {fish_49} lol
[14:39] {Les} c
[14:41] {fish_49} how deep of a pull back would be appropriate on C  if pulled back to .20  on low VOL  is that what you would look for Vad?
01[14:43] {@Threei}  I'd get interested under .30
[14:43] {munky} r we in anything? was with tech
[14:44] {fish_49} ty
01[14:44] {@Threei}  no, flat
01[14:44] {@Threei}  got any answers about sound?
[14:45] {munky} not avail, but i got my 4 montage windows in sync, another issue i was having
[14:51] {dino} strange, usually more playable moves after announcement
01[14:52] {@Threei}  yeah, quite subdued
[14:52] {nemo} tells you how baked in the announcement was methinks
[14:53] {fish_49} baked in is correct  However, a lot of money on the sidelines and I would have expected that money to come back into the markets since we have confirmation nothing drastic will change
[14:53] {nemo} we're at vwap of spy finnies and vix
[14:53] {nemo} market probably waiting for reaction around the world before it comes  overnight
01[14:54] {@Threei}  well, if that's the case and this 10B cut is built-in, we are about to resume rally
[14:54] {fish_49} I know I'm not supposed to think  but that's what me thinks  Vad
[14:54] {fish_49} we should be in rally mode
[14:54] {fish_49} uinless something else is broken that I don't know about
[14:54] {Les} why?
[14:54] {nemo} you should go unicorn shopping
[14:55] {dino} its all broken fish...but so what
01[14:55] {@Threei}  really
[14:55] {fish_49} It's all part of the learning process on my journey to be like Nemo

01[14:57] {@Threei}  you want to hurt him be extremely polite
[14:58] {nemo} I would have to first have feelings
01[14:58] {@Threei}  offer him sympathy
[14:58] {fish_49} that's why I tell him I love him  lol
01[14:58] {@Threei}  wish him good morning or whatever rtime of the day
01[14:58] {@Threei}  that makes him cringe

[14:58] {fish_49} lol
[14:59] {nemo} bow to Zod
[14:59] {fish_49} Honestly is my way of thinking wrong?  we should be in Rally Mode,...  Nothing changed to bring the markets down the way they have fell in past weeks
01[15:00] {@Threei} Long Setup:  C  .20 break
[15:00] {nemo} market has been falling, right?
