March 20 2014

Not very satisfactory day as a few too many small stops kept us slightly negative even though there were quite nice winners. Oh well. Nice discussion of trading rules at the last 20 minutes, don't miss it.

[11:18] {dptl} The Russian name for any homemade distilled alcoholic beverage is called samogon (ru: ??????´?), literally translated as "self-run" or "self-distilled". Historically, it was made from malted grain (and therefore similar to whisky), but this method is relatively rare nowadays, due to increased availability of more convenient base ingredients, such as table sugar, which modern samogon is most often made from. Other common ingredients inclu
[11:19] {dptl} Ese :)
01[11:19] {@Threei}  Europe has a range of options to shore up its energy security and cut dependence on Russian supplies, including asking the United States to export more gas, and working with Iraq, a British government document says.

[13:32] {nathan} what's up?
01[13:32] {@Threei}  SPY
01[13:34] {@Threei}  break of .05 should get us to 1:2
01[13:39] {@Threei}  OK, this I have to read 3 more times to believe:
01[13:39] {@Threei}  The Obama administration has proposed a 28% spending cut for a Pentagon program that supports modernizing the military of Ukraine and other former Soviet Union republics, Pentagon budget records show, a move that could endanger efforts to boost Ukraine's armed forces as they face threats from Russia.
01[13:39] {@Threei}  wtf?
01[13:40] {@Threei}  is this guy absolutely set on undermining USA credibility to the point where no one notices it on the map?
[13:40] {dino} pretty much, carries around a lot of guilt i guess, obummer
[13:40] {RonS} he's thinking Canada can pick up the tab...
01[13:41] {@Threei}  Spending on the Warsaw Initiative Fund is set to drop from $34 million in the current fiscal year to $24.4 million in the 2015 fiscal year, which starts Oct. 1.

01[13:57] {@Threei}  VXX balance closed
01[13:58] {@Threei}  good point:
01[13:58] {@Threei}  The Moscow Times: If Russia gets Crimea, should Germany get Kaliningrad?
01[13:58] {@Threei}  how far back do we go to restore what we consider "correct" borders?
01[14:00] {@Threei}  Kaliningrad, formerly known as Konigsberg, a historically German exclave that Germany lost to the Soviet Union in 1945 following the conclusion of World War II
01[14:02] {@Threei}  VZ doesn't bounce with SPY
[14:05] {munky} on vz vad, u would take large shares like 3k?

[15:30] {nemo} I wish I had ur quote from last week ;-)
[15:31] {dino} which one
[15:31] {nemo} about me and turning points
[15:31] {dino} you're good at picking them, no doubt
[15:32] {fish_49} Dino?
[15:32] {dino} yes?
01[15:32] {@Threei}  crap... missed C

[15:38] {nemo} u talkin' to me?

01[15:39] {@Threei}  not really satisfied with today
01[15:39] {@Threei}  a few too many small stops
[15:40] {fish_49} Nemo says You talkin to me?
[15:40] {nemo} Op Ex Thursday
[15:40] {fish_49}
[15:40] {nemo} good ole Travis
[15:41] {mojo1} gotta have bigger balzzz vad
01[15:41] {@Threei}  seriously?
[15:41] {dino} good day here, 5/5 at goal
[15:42] {nemo}
[15:42] {dino} most likely done for today, unless something really pops or drops
01[15:42] {@Threei}  you know how many with big balls started this profession with me and during my time, and none are around?
06[15:42] * nemo smacks mojo with the edge of a cricket bat
[15:42] {fish_49} Ballz  exploded?
01[15:42] {@Threei}  there is a good saying
01[15:43] {@Threei}  most popular sign on the tomstone in the traders' cemetery: "he was a brave trader"
[15:43] {nemo} there are bold traders
[15:43] {nemo} and old traders
[15:43] {dino} i can say the same vad, bunch of people i started trading with, i'm only one left
[15:43] {munky} roflol
[15:44] {nemo} just no old, bold traders
01[15:44] {@Threei}  yup
[15:44] {fish_49} good point nemo
01[15:44] {@Threei}  that was about pilots originally
[15:44] {fish_49} Brings me back to what Dino said
[15:44] {nemo} each day fits different traders differently
01[15:44] {@Threei}  relates to traders fully
[15:44] {fish_49} Something Dino said I have read in many books but when he siad it, it sunk
[15:44] {dino} mojo; fortune favors the bold (and darkness lies one step ahead)
[15:45] {fish_49} " Ya gotta stay in the game"
[15:45] {nemo} you are mortal unexpectedly-and that goes for your trading account
01[15:45] {@Threei}  anyone who wants to take big risks and hope to hit big score, go ahead and try. Come back when you finance new account, and take it seriously necxt time
[15:45] {fish_49} not exact spelling but  put my  spin on it
[15:45] {dino} fish, RULE # 1: YOU MUST STAY IN THE GAME!
[15:46] {fish_49} I like my spin "Ya Gotta Stay in the Game"
[15:46] {fish_49} lol
[15:46] {dino} you want my rules?
[15:46] {munky} no please no
[15:46] {nemo} sit on it and spin fish
[15:46] {fish_49} Rule #1  you must stay in the game
[15:46] {fish_49} Rule #2  Dont break rule #1
[15:48] {fish_49} Finished trading Vad?
[15:48] {nemo} when hunting you can't shoot what ain't there
[15:49] {fish_49} are you there?
[15:49] {nemo} all, is one, I am everywhere
[15:49] {nemo} dork
[15:50] {dino} 1) you must stay in the game; 2) start at 9:45 or later; 3) remain calm, wait for set-ups; 4) capitulation drops & euphoric spikes are your edge; 5) don't think, just react to set-ups; 6) when set-up is there you must take it; 7) don't over trade, take an hour off to clear your head; 8) base hits are high % plays; 9) profits=luck; losses=skill; 10) discipline trumps conviction; 11) NEVER
[15:50] {dino} let opinions get in the way of making $$$; 12) ask yourself, what do you believe that isn't true.
[15:51] {fish_49} Ibelieve Nemo is a good guy
[15:51] {fish_49} but Not true
[15:51] {nemo} huh
[15:51] {dino} they are in frame above my trading computer, read the first thing every day
01[15:52] {@Threei}  I can only add 13:
01[15:52] {@Threei}  Going for a big kill is the surefire way to get killed big
[15:53] {dino} agreed
[15:53] {nemo} o.k. you shouldn't try to shoot what is not there
[15:53] {fish_49} that's better phrase Toad
[15:53] {thomcbell} agreed guys
01[15:53] {@Threei}  thank you all, see you tomorrow
[15:53] {nemo} but, you still can't shoot it, if it's not there
[15:54] {fish_49} good night Vad
[15:54] {fish_49} thanks
[15:54] {dino} obviously the capits/euphoric won't apply to most here. these are just what i've learned to understand as my "edge".
[15:54] {fish_49} OK toad  Good night
[15:54] {fish_49} Take care aall
[15:54] {dino} gn
[15:54] {nemo} weird do you hit a target, that's not there
