[10:32] [dptl} lol
[10:32] [nemo} Les' wife been regretting it ever since
[10:36] [nemo}
[10:37] [dptl} gis, i think its a nice looking set up for long
[10:40] [Les} ooophtouché
06[10:41] * nemo thinks, "should I drop the hammer on Les....mmmhhhhh."
[10:41] [Les} vxx otential db or setting up for dbi
[10:42] [nemo} I think it might be a bit early for that
[10:45] [ese} ok thats enough of a dangerous game out plug .42 +.13.....4400shs
01[10:45] [@Threei}  wtg
[10:45] [ese} tks...learned from the best
[10:46] [Les} gj ese
[10:46] [ese} tks les......can afford to come and see you in switzerland sometime
[10:46] [nemo} probably wouldn't be good for your IQ ese
[10:47] [Les} Nemo's right as always
[10:47] [ese} ouch
[10:47] [Les} but Montreux Jazz is only weeks away ese
[10:47] [Les} that blind black fella gonna be there
[10:47] [ese} memories for sure......last time there summer 81
[10:48] [Les} crikey was but a wee lad in a diaper at that time
[10:49] [Les} DV vxx stands
[10:49] [Les} db
[10:50] [Les} shit ese you were the market in plug
[10:51] [RonS} no way Les, that stock is the most over-followed and over-owned stock out there by the retail trders in the US
[10:51] [ese} hardly buddy.....9.6mil to this point......just a drop in the bucket
[10:51] [Les} c'mon Ron permit me some hyperbole
[10:52] [ese} am thinkin about reloading with half of that 1/2
[10:52] [RonS} just sayin...the whole thing feels like a huge setup
[10:52] [Les} yeh I getchya
[10:56] [RonS} plug has 3200 followers on stocktwits and the message volume on it is so high i had to turn it off...
[10:56] [ese} ron.....i would agree if your talkin bout the mrkt as a whole ...check out the head and shoulders pattern on the spyers 1 min chart
[10:57] [ese} damn close
[10:57] [ese} hmmmmmm maybe not heading up
[10:58] [RonS} h&s is the most failed pattern in the last 5 years, concocted for idiots imo...
01[10:59] [@Threei}  yup, I never use it as standalone
[10:59] [ese} well ...looks like it just failed now
[11:00] [ese} i don't use it either but alot still do which puts some kinda value to be awre imo
[11:00] [ese} aware
[11:06] [RonS} vwap, points of control, pivot points, sentiment charting...these are what is being used...h&s and traditional technical analysis do not work in the era of algo trading...again imo
[11:07] [nemo} I agree, although you can see variations that show weakness that telegraph off of those levels...You see that chart formation on vwap or one of the pivot levels it's more likely to work
[11:08] [ese} i'd agree....i certainly use pivots(nemo got me into that) and vwap ....but still ....just basic price momentum works
[11:09] [nemo} this is such a weird day with op ex and the holiday
[11:09] [ese} indeed

[14:27] [nemo} vxx might have a hard time getting traction in this low volume environment, indexes move up easily

[14:32] [nemo} manna
[14:34] [dptl} in vxx
01[14:34] [@Threei}  In responding to a question from an elderly woman about whether Russia would now seek to take back Alaska, once part of the Russian Empire, Putin hinted at the strategic importance of Crimea's warm-water ports. "Faina Ivanovna, dear, why do we need Alaska?" he said, adding that Alaska is "cold." Putin said he knows that Alaska is now jokingly called Ice Cream, a play on "Krym," the Russian word for Crimea.
[14:35] [nemo} germans use Krym too
01[14:37] [@Threei}  lol
01[14:37] [@Threei}  remember the joke I cited once

[14:37] [nemo} that was too easy\
01[14:37] [@Threei}  "Argentina and Mongolia signed peace agreement between Chile and Ukraine"

[14:37] [nemo} I can hear him now under his breath "frickin' pizdah"
01[14:38] [@Threei}  why under? I said that out loud
01[14:38] [@Threei}  Obama and Merkel agreed during the call that Russia should use its influence on armed groups in eastern Ukraine to calm the situation
[14:38] [nemo} yeah, but nobody can hear u
01[14:38] [@Threei}  wife can
[14:38] [nemo} kinda' open ended
