March 04 2014

Slowish day as market gapped and stalled. Profitable though, especially after the midday lunacy when things sold off on bogus reason of Russia's missile test. Gave us a few long entries when panicking sellers realized it was nothing out of ordinary and planned well in advance of today's crisis.

Session Time: Tue Mar 04 00:00:00 2014
[08:07] {thomcbell} GM
01[08:49] {@Threei}  morning thom
[08:53] {nemo} Where's that foreign affairs expert, ese?
01[08:53] {@Threei}  why, what question do you have for him?
[08:55] {nemo} none...we were having a long conversation about Ukraine and Crimea last night...I didn't know, Kruschev basically gave Crimea to Ukraine...and it was Tartars first before Stalin moved them...sheesh, "invading" Ukraine, would be like us invading California
01[08:55] {@Threei}  you should have asked me
01[08:56] {@Threei}  in 1954 Crimea was tranferred to Ukraine
[08:56] {nemo} It's easier over booze
[08:56] {fish_49} Invade California?  Not a bad Idea  Convert them to Conservatives
01[08:56] {@Threei}  lol
[08:56] {nemo} Nah, I was thinking nuke it
01[08:56] {@Threei}  but that's half of the story
[08:56] {fish_49} so am I reading this right  Putin will leave them alone?
[08:56] {nemo} yeah, 4 bottles of wine, 1 bottle cognac, 1 bottle rum
01[08:56] {@Threei}  there were many land resdistributions
01[08:57] {@Threei}  when USSR was dismantled, broders were settled
01[08:57] {@Threei}  borders too
01[08:58] {@Threei}  and in 1994 in Budapest an agreement was signed, according to which Ukraine gave up its nukes, in exchange US, UK and Russia guaranteed it its territorial integrity
01[08:58] {@Threei}  Russia leased naval base territory in Crimea, in exchange for 30% discount for natural gas
01[08:59] {@Threei}  This lease is active to 2042 per last signed agreement
[08:59] {dino} gm
01[08:59] {@Threei}  So no, by all the legal framework Crimea is Ukrainian
01[08:59] {@Threei}  dino :)
[08:59] {fish_49} so the port and the nat gas is the issue?
[09:00] {nemo} yeah, but culturally and strategically, it's always been a part of the Russian equation
01[09:00] {@Threei}  not at all
01[09:00] {@Threei}  nothihg is an issue but this:
01[09:00] {@Threei}  Putin can't and won't allow Ukraine as a NATO member
[09:00] {nemo} nope
[09:01] {nemo} he ain't having nato right up against his western flank
01[09:01] {@Threei}  as soon as this threat reappeared after this revolution puvoting Ukraine toward west, he made this move
01[09:01] {@Threei}  prepared long ago btw
01[09:01] {@Threei}  Nemo, yes, it was a part of Russia for good couple centuries
01[09:01] {@Threei}  so what?
01[09:02] {@Threei}  Some of Kuban land was part of Ukraine
01[09:02] {@Threei}  and was transfered to Russia during soviet times
[09:02] {nemo} well, you get all these modern foreign affairs experts commenting with little historical context
01[09:02] {@Threei}  you don't go back in history and decide what you redistribute
01[09:02] {@Threei}  ah yes
[09:02] {nemo} oh, and who have been behind the uprising:  the Maidan
01[09:02] {@Threei}  that I see left and right
01[09:03] {@Threei}  well, here is breaking news
01[09:03] {@Threei}  Maidan doesn't know who Maidan is, and who is behind it
01[09:03] {@Threei}  it's a hirrific mish m,esh of very different forces
[09:03] {nemo} bunch of Neo-Nazi's...and the ersatz foreign affairs experts are supporting them?
01[09:04] {@Threei}  they got united for a short while by common enemy
01[09:04] {@Threei}  no...
01[09:04] {@Threei}  there are neo nazis
01[09:04] {@Threei}  but it's not the whole maidan, and not even majotiry
01[09:04] {@Threei}  it's one of the most organized parts of it, sure
01[09:05] {@Threei}  most on Maidan were brought there by sheer and pure desire to get rid of the bandits that ruled the country
01[09:05] {@Threei}  and most are as unhappy with new govt as they were with old one
01[09:05] {@Threei}  and voice it out quite loudly
01[09:06] {@Threei}  they want new election
01[09:06] {@Threei}  and until that happens, you don't know who came out victorious in the end
01[09:06] {@Threei}  Labeling whole movement as nazus is Russian propaganda
01[09:07] {@Threei}  and their justification for intervention
[09:08] {nemo} I'm sure there are enough lies on both sides to go around
01[09:10] {@Threei}  oh and if we are to return to historic boreders as they were at some point in the past, choosing and picking what someone wants... how about returning Alaska to Russia?
01[09:10] {@Threei}  how is it different from Crimea?
[09:10] {nemo} or California to Mexico
[09:10] {nemo} Louisiana purchase to France
01[09:10] {@Threei}  many in Russia consider it unfair that Alaska now belongs to USA
01[09:11] {@Threei}  still want to open that door by admitting that yes, Russia has rights to Crimea?
[09:12] {nemo} who me?  No, I'm just saying there is a much longer historical entanglement then the EFA experts understand
[09:12] {_illyakuryakin} Its their Cabo San Lucas ...right?
01[09:13] {@Threei}  I haven't watched Putin's press conference in full, but from the lines I read, I don't know why everyone decided it's over
01[09:13] {@Threei}  Putin says for now no need to use military force in Crimea, but Russia has option to do so
01[09:13] {@Threei}  sure no need, it's taken over with no single shot
01[09:13] {@Threei}  Putin: 'As you know the markets were quite nervous before the situation in Ukraine, it is connected to the policy of the USA'
01[09:14] {@Threei}  Russia will 'of course' provide aid to Ukraine's southern region of Crimea, Putin says
01[09:14] {@Threei}  yup, by making them Russian citizens
01[09:14] {@Threei}  Russia's President Putin says there has been an anti-constitutional coup in the Ukraine, a military seizure of power
01[09:14] {@Threei}  etc
01[09:15] {@Threei}  on, and this gem:
01[09:15] {@Threei}  Putin says he hopes Russia won't have to use force in eastern Ukraine
01[09:15] {@Threei}  how quickly world forgot Stalin-speak
01[09:15] {@Threei}  this above is not a reassurance, it's a threat
[09:17] {munky} morn
01[09:17] {@Threei}  munky :)
01[09:17] {@Threei}  Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a press conference in Moscow today, didn't rule out further military intervention in Ukraine to carry out what he described as a humanitarian mission to protect Ukraine's millions of ethnic Russians.
01[09:17] {@Threei}  lol
01[09:18] {@Threei}  How do you say in Putian "no one shoots at us but as soon as they start.."
01[09:18] {@Threei}  here: Putin said, however, that “there is no reason yet” to use military force.
01[09:19] {@Threei}  read this nemo:
01[09:19] {@Threei}  http://www.kyivpost.com/content/politics/putin-doesnt-rule-out-deeper-military-intervention-in-ukraine-338350.html
[09:19] {fish_49} Wished Ukraine had large oil reserves
01[09:20] {@Threei}  lol
[09:20] {fish_49} think about it
01[09:20] {@Threei}  yup
[09:20] {fish_49} the USA would not let Iraq Invae Kuwait..  Why would we let Putin invade Ukraine?
01[09:20] {@Threei}  one thing is for sure: when Putin says something is red line for him, he follows through
[09:22] {goinshort} gm all!

[11:00] {fish_49} someone step on Big Mac
01[11:01] {@Threei}  seriously, I've no idea where commentators and market as a whole got the idea that tension eases. If anything, Putin said he intends to continue, he may not limit to Crimea but move on Eastern Ukraine as well, and everyone is an idiot and can't stop him

01[11:31] {@Threei}  oh
01[11:31] {@Threei}  fish, you haven't completed the sentence
01[11:31] {@Threei}  full version:
01[11:31] {@Threei}  but who knew Putin was gonna break weak Western spine so easy
[11:31] {fish_49} messing with ese  he indicates above he should have stayed in KMX  longer
[11:31] {fish_49} ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
[11:32] {fish_49} lol
[11:32] {fish_49} your right Vad
[11:33] {RonS} ese calls Putin:  hey Vlad baby, back off...i've got a kmx position on...
[11:34] {fish_49} Wish ese can call Vlad and ask him to surround the McDonalds
[11:34] {RonS} Putin:  ...anything for you, drummer boy...
[11:34] {fish_49} so ese and putin are like Kim Jung Un and Denis Rodman?
[11:35] {_illyakuryakin} 3i, cartilage does not break...it bends.
01[11:35] {@Threei}  lol ilya
[11:37] {ese} hey fish.....normally on shorter plays i will go ½ then out a another quarter then full.....
[11:37] {fish_49} yea  You kept that over night  right?
[11:38] {ese} you guys were on me about him yesterday calling him stupid....the financial markets sold off Russian currency like crazy.....what'd they finally loose a trillion or so.....that was a no brainer
[11:38] {ese} hopefully he needed that to pay off Sochi......dumb ass
[11:39] {ese} ya...kept it overnight.....based on a strong daily chart cup and handle
[11:40] {ese} and breaking above some ma's
[11:41] {ese} calculated guess.....it could have gone the other way......i figured maybe 2bills with 600 shs...another learning experience
[11:43] {dino} maybe putin was short going into that
01[11:45] {@Threei}  ese... you seem to use terms evil and stupid interchangably
01[11:45] {@Threei}  no one argued against him being evil
01[11:46] {@Threei}  but stupid? not in the least
01[11:46] {@Threei}  now... he exports oil, right?
01[11:46] {@Threei}  and whole country in fact lives off of that
01[11:47] {@Threei}  so, how do you think rouble selloff impacted his economy, negatively or positively?
01[11:47] {@Threei}  tell me again how he is stupid
[11:47] {munky} im confused??
[11:47] {fish_49} de-valued his currency and gave him less international buying power
01[11:48] {@Threei}  he is and EXPORTER
01[11:48] {@Threei}  an
[11:48] {_illyakuryakin} oil goes up
01[11:48] {@Threei}  exporting countries benefit from weak currency
[11:48] {dino} dhe boosted price of his oil
[11:48] {dino} exactly
01[11:48] {@Threei}  and yes, conflict lifted the price of oil
01[11:49] {@Threei}  double win
[11:49] {dino} i also think he had huge shorts placed on markets, he knew when he was invading, so why not
[11:51] {fish_49} who buys the largest share of Russian Oil?
[11:51] {dino} europe
[11:52] {dino} as with natty gas
01[11:52] {@Threei}  now ese... think Putin is burdened by cost of Olympics very much?
[11:52] {RonS} President Obama: 'We believe the Ukrainian people should be able to decide their own future'...(but US citizens can screw themselves...they must do as I say)...
01[11:52] {@Threei}  how much do you think Russia made by selling oil in 2013?
01[11:53] {@Threei}  $415 billion
[11:54] {RonS} and how about natty?
01[11:55] {@Threei}  don't know
[11:55] {fish_49} Ukraine has their own Nat Gas  right?
[11:55] {_illyakuryakin} its flared
01[11:55] {@Threei}  can find it but even that number tells you how he just doesn't care about measly 50 b
01[11:55] {@Threei}  half of which was stolen anyway
01[11:55] {@Threei}  no fish
01[11:55] {@Threei}  coal, ire
[11:56] {dino} russian pipelines carry russian gas thru ukraine to europe, about 40% of europe gas needs
[11:56] {_illyakuryakin} hmmm
[11:56] {dino} fracking is going to start looking prettyu good to europeans soon
[11:56] {fish_49} oh  My  so my statement earlier is not far off.  They dont have their own Oil but the pipes on their land control  a huge share
01[11:57] {@Threei}  well, what is it they control?
01[11:57] {@Threei}  they are paid for use of the land
[11:58] {fish_49} but if they dont like the price given for land rights  they are in control
[11:58] {dino} past 3 years with disputes, russia simply cut off gas supply
01[11:59] {@Threei}  they really are not fish
01[11:59] {@Threei}  they need that gas
01[12:00] {@Threei}  they demand more than russia is willing to pay, russia shrugs and closes supply
[12:00] {dino} fish, its the golden rule w/russia, "whoever has the gold (gas) rules
[12:00] {fish_49} yea  I have no clue .. I should pay closer attention to politics in that region.  
01[12:00] {@Threei}  next thing you know, Ukraine and half of Eutope freezes
[12:00] {dino} bingo!!!!
01[12:00] {@Threei}  anfd guess who Europe blames?
01[12:00] {@Threei}  Ukraine, for demanding unreasonable payment
[12:00] {fish_49} Ukraine?
[12:00] {dino} watch for usa to start granting natty gas export permits for europe
[12:01] {dino} drill baby drill
[12:04] {ese} am gone....cya tomorrow
01[12:04] {@Threei}  take care ese
[12:04] {dino} cya
[12:08] {RonS} dino, isn't the restriction only oil...natty exports waiting for two lng facilities to be completed?

[12:48] {thomcbell} wow spwr trying to break out but already up so much probably spikes and fails
01[12:48] {@Threei}  (UR) US Sec State Kerry: Russia has worked hard to create a pretext for invading the Ukraine; US is not looking for a major confrontation with Russia
[12:51] {dino} russia basically just said "f u"
01[12:52] {@Threei}  you mean reiterated
[12:52] {fish_49} so war with words for awhile
01[12:52] {@Threei}  they don't get it... both EU and US current clowns
01[12:52] {@Threei}  here is simple truth:
[12:53] {dino} russia gets it. troops are still in ukraine
01[12:53] {@Threei}  for Putin, Ukraine as a member of NATO is unacceptable. Period
[12:53] {dino} they know obummer doesn't have any balls
01[12:53] {@Threei}  there is no way he agrees to that, no way no how
[12:53] {fish_49} yea  thats  what I was gonna ask  are there any reports of actually seeing the troops being pulled back?
01[12:54] {@Threei}  there is no any depth he won't go to to prevent that
01[12:54] {@Threei}  not at all fish
01[12:54] {@Threei}  Crimea is effectively occupied
[12:54] {fish_49} the last report I watched was many drunk soldiers
[12:55] {fish_49} we should be buying stock in Vodka  today as they celebrate
01[12:55] {@Threei}  if he has to break Ukraine by two parts to prevent that outcome, he will do it
[12:55] {dino} all i saw was a cease to war games near border, troops still in crimea
01[12:55] {@Threei}  and he has means to do it
01[12:55] {@Threei}  he won't have to start all-out war to achieve that
01[12:56] {@Threei}  there are old fault lines in Ukraine that can be exploited to achieve the civil war and breakdown
01[12:56] {@Threei}  cultural, ethnic, language, historic
[12:56] {fish_49} re-draw map?
[12:57] {dino} back o the ussr
[12:57] {fish_49} That song will come back?
[12:58] {dino} would have to think jeb is taking a serious look at this
01[13:08] {@Threei}  WH Press Secretary: Considering multiple violation of international law by Russia, we made a difficult decision to unfollow Russia on Twitter
[13:10] {_illyakuryakin} they still have the red pohone tho...
[13:10] {_illyakuryakin} phone
[13:11] {dino} russia to obummer, "go ahead, i double dog dare ya"
[13:11] {_illyakuryakin} poker vs chess
[13:12] {fish_49} whats in the Obummer hand?  pair of 3's?
[13:13] {_illyakuryakin} kangaroo streit
[13:14] {fish_49} MCD took out some stops?
01[13:15] {@Threei}  ?
01[13:15] {@Threei}  it neverf got out of the range
[13:15] {fish_49} I see a wick reaching up to .99
01[13:20] {@Threei}  yes... and stop is...?
[13:20] {fish_49} .05
[13:20] {fish_49} at least mine is
01[13:21] {@Threei}  so how .99 matters?
[13:21] {fish_49} it don't
[13:21] {fish_49} just commented on that fast wick
01[13:22] {@Threei}  oh
01[13:22] {@Threei}  I connected it with "taking out stops"
[13:22] {fish_49} yes
01[13:22] {@Threei}  I should make less connections
06[13:22] * @Threei drops twitter
[13:22] {fish_49} flash wicks  like that  take out stops
[13:23] {fish_49} twtr bounced off support since the POTUS not following The Putin's
