March 26 2014

Some days are smooth and easy - this one was not one of those. Jerky patternless morning brought a few stops which we had to rectify for the whole afternoon. We succeeded in covering large part of the losses but still ended negative. Oh well.

[15:10] {fish_49} Trying WMT short at .49
[15:10] {nemo} shorting in the hole
[15:14] {nemo} fish definitely partial when u can
[15:15] {fish_49} thanks I took .05 
[15:16] {nemo} IMO, your trade depended on the indexes going lower, which is less likely given the days action
[15:17] {fish_49} I think we go lower
[15:17] {nemo} thus "partial"
[15:18] {fish_49} I scalped it  made money
[15:18] {nemo} ok
[15:22] {dino} gj
01[15:23] {@Threei} Short Setup: FB  .90 breK
01[15:23] {@Threei}  If holds  .90 
[15:23] {nemo} you mean .80?
01[15:23] {@Threei}  yes
01[15:24] {@Threei} Short Setup: FB  .80 break
[15:24] {fish_49} thought I missed it again
[15:24] {fish_49} lol
01[15:26] {@Threei}  1:1  
[15:28] {fish_49} out on trail ty
01[15:29] {@Threei}  yw
01[15:30] {@Threei}  wow
01[15:31] {@Threei}  (IT) Italy govt wins Senate confidence vote on bill to eliminate some provinces
01[15:31] {@Threei}  really?
01[15:31] {@Threei}  that's one way to deal with overspending...
[15:31] {fish_49} Business can close stores  Gov  can close Provinces?
01[15:31] {@Threei}  I suggest to try that with some of the states
01[15:32] {@Threei}  evacuate nemo and eliminate Massachusets
[15:32] {fish_49} what state would take him?
01[15:32] {@Threei}  who knows what they mean when they say eliminate, fish
01[15:32] {@Threei}  might involve thick layer of concrete
[15:33] {fish_49} in Italy I'm sure it involves burying in Concrete
01[15:33] {@Threei}  that would have a been shovel-ready project
[15:35] {cosmo} eliminate Alaska
[15:35] {fish_49} not until June
[15:36] {nemo} wow.. NLRB rules "scholarshipped players" in college are employees and can unionize....
[15:36] {fish_49} yep
01[15:39] {@Threei}  careful cosmo... Alaska is last frontier between us and Russia
[15:40] {nemo} we'll send Les, that will screw them up
[15:40] {cosmo} we still have canada
01[15:40] {@Threei}  you do... we don't
[15:40] {cosmo} sorry
[15:41] {nemo} sorry Munk man, vxx didn't quite make it to .75
01[15:41] {@Threei}  and if you disregard that, we... we... we will evacuate nemo to California
01[15:41] {@Threei}  that'll show you
[15:41] {nemo} fuck you...I'm not going
01[15:41] {@Threei}  who is asking youi
[15:41] {fish_49} He would fit right in with the other fruit loops
[15:41] {nemo} who's gonna' move me?
[15:42] {cosmo} Calif is waiting
01[15:42] {@Threei}  not sure, we will consult Stalin's book "how to relocate whole nations"
[15:42] {cosmo} through the golden gate
01[15:42] {@Threei}  Crimea tatars disagreed too
01[15:42] {@Threei}  much good it did for them
[15:43] {nemo} well, he does relocate the whole nation, half die on the trains 
01[15:43] {@Threei}  see?
01[15:43] {@Threei}  you have 50% chance of survival
01[15:43] {@Threei}  and it's better than staying in mssachusets while it's being eliminated
01[15:44] {@Threei}  billy... missed a few winners, including 1:3er
[15:44] {_billy_d} oh man, bummer
[15:45] {_billy_d} that's the problem with trading, it doesn't adhere to my schedule :)
01[15:46] {@Threei}  didn't fully rectify morning losses but filled up a hole noticeably
[15:47] {_billy_d} yeah, it would have helped
[15:47] {_billy_d} glad to hear for you guys
[15:48] {cosmo} Gold testing 1300 fwiw
[15:50] {dino} calling it a day, thx all, good one 
01[15:50] {@Threei}  wtg dino... we will catch up with you tomorrow
[15:51] {dino} no doubt
[15:51] {thomcbell} night
01[15:51] {@Threei}  cosmo... gold has no business staying over 1000, IMO
[15:51] {_billy_d} bye all
[15:52] {cosmo} oh
[15:54] {cosmo} so...there's  more gold than we think?
[15:54] {cosmo} like in the phillipines?
01[15:54] {@Threei}  not necessary... but it will vost less than many think
01[15:55] {@Threei}  cost
01[15:55] {@Threei}  thanks all, have a good evening
01[15:55] {@Threei}  see you tomorrow
[15:55] {cosmo} yea...this weakness would indicate that...
