01[11:07] {@Threei}  (US) PIMCO Exec commenting on total return fund: ECB's QE is drawing US yields lower
01[11:07] {@Threei}  duh
[11:07] {RonS} works weekends as rocket scientist?
01[11:08] {@Threei}  I am sure
01[11:08] {@Threei}  he continued:
01[11:08] {@Threei}  USD is at the beginning on what would be a long term upward trend
01[11:08] {@Threei}  beginning, eh?
01[11:08] {@Threei}  3 years late and god knows how many USDs short
[11:09] {RonS} continuing more...btw i have never looked at a chart in my life...
01[11:09] {@Threei}  'USD is going to be king again" - who said that and how long ago?
01[11:09] {@Threei}  hehe
01[11:10] {@Threei}  (GR) Greece, in its discussions with the Eurogroup said to have rejected a 3-6 month extension of the bailout; all countries in the EMU rejected Greece's request for a new deal
[11:10] {cosmo} How far do stocks have to fall for that stronger dollar?
[11:10] {dino} funny, couple years ago everybody said usd dead
01[11:10] {@Threei}  why do they have to fall?
01[11:11] {@Threei}  not me dino
[11:11] {cosmo} the math says so
01[11:11] {@Threei}  that's some weird math
[11:11] {RonS} who's math?
01[11:11] {@Threei}  there were many periods when USD and stock market went up together
[11:12] {cosmo} but rising stocks make the dollar weak...right?
[11:12] {nemo} no
01[11:12] {@Threei}  huh?
[11:12] {RonS} wow
01[11:12] {@Threei}  where di that come from?
[11:12] {nemo} stand up cosmo, take the pressure off your brain
[11:12] {dino} lesson of the story, never give up currency control
[11:13] {cosmo} rising stocks costs more dollars = weaker dollars
01[11:14] {@Threei}  this is not the way it works, cosmo... not even close
[11:14] {cosmo} oh
[11:14] {RonS} dino, oh, you mean like the US did in 1913?
01[11:14] {@Threei}  3 years ago, when I dropped that "USD is about to reaffirm itself as king" goldbugs everywhere were pointing fingers at me and laughed
01[11:15] {@Threei}  too bad I am not the one to say "told ya so"
01[11:15] {@Threei}  wait... I am!
[11:15] {RonS} ...can testify to that here...
[11:15] {dino} euro lovers said euro would become reserve currency, lol
01[11:15] {@Threei}  sure... for museums
[11:15] {RonS} lol
[11:15] {cosmo} hmm
01[11:16] {@Threei}  "once in 21 century, they decided to create single currency for 27 countries in Europe, kids"
01[11:16] {@Threei}  kids: really? they were this stupid back then?
01[11:17] {@Threei}  guide: now now, kids... be polite. To stupid people
01[11:18] {@Threei} Short Setup: FB  .15 break
01[11:18] {@Threei}  If holds  .25
01[11:18] {@Threei}  SUNE Seeing call activity3K Apr 26 calls trade at $0.46
[11:19] {cosmo} Being polite has always been my biggest challenge
01[11:20] {@Threei}  why don't you ask nemo for guidance
01[11:20] {@Threei}  he is the best at failing that challenge
01[11:21] {@Threei}  every time when he tries to say "pass me salt darling" what comes out is strangely similar to "bitch, you destroyed my life"
[11:21] {cosmo} think so?  Failure is the best teacher...
[11:22] {cosmo} so he has a little edge...
01[11:22] {@Threei}  I'll say
01[11:23] {@Threei}  but that's what we value him for
[11:23] {nemo} and a backhoe, tons of lime and barrels of sulphuric acid
[11:23] {cosmo} ah...gotcha
01[11:23] {@Threei}  friend with a backhoe... can't put a price on that
01[11:23] {@Threei}  1:1  FB
[11:24] {nemo} don't worry cosmo, your only on the list in far
[11:24] {nemo} you're
01[11:24] {@Threei}  GRRRRR
01[11:25] {@Threei}  you're-your is second only to they're-their-there are among things I can't forgive
01[11:25] {@Threei}  1:2
01[11:25] {@Threei}  then again, he has a backhoe...
[11:25] {nemo} shall we talk about your use of articles?
01[11:26] {@Threei}  and when I call and say "listen, I have this problem" he only asks when the body has to be hidden - not even "where":
01[11:26] {@Threei}  no, articles are not the sibject to discuss... I refuse to admit their existence
[11:26] {nemo} what body?
01[11:27] {@Threei}  right
01[11:27] {@Threei}  I mean, English has many strange twists and turns, but A and THE take the cake
[11:27] {nemo} as an old friend said to me a looooong time ago, as we were standing next to his home incinerator, "Doing the deed is nothing, getting rid of the body is always a problem"
01[11:27] {@Threei}  totally meaningless invention
01[11:34] {@Threei}  OSCE chief admits being unable to identify Russian soldiers among militants
01[11:35] {@Threei}  seriously? passports, military papers and interrigation resuts where they name their divisions and commanders is not enough?
01[11:39] {@Threei}  closed last piece FB on a trail
[11:57] {Nesi} vad, are you still using tradeideas as a scanner?
01[11:57] {@Threei}  intelliscan
01[11:57] {@Threei}  version of TI
[11:58] {Nesi} better?
01[11:58] {@Threei}  same engine, some of proprietary setups added
01[12:01] {@Threei}  JPM
01[12:01] {@Threei}  .40 breakout forms, but let's try for DKTK here
01[12:02] {@Threei}  let it break, reverse, drop under .30
01[12:02] {@Threei}  then buy on recross

01[12:10] {@Threei}  change to .25 break
01[12:10] {@Threei}  If holds  .20
01[12:12] {@Threei}  1:1
01[12:16] {@Threei}  ok JPM, show us what you are made off
01[12:24] {@Threei}  (UR) Ukraine President Poroshenko: Minsk negotiations were difficult, implementation of accords will be very complicated
01[12:24] {@Threei}  upon reading it in full, I'd say a snowball in 500F oven has better chance to increase in size and freeze entire kitchen than this agreement to be implemented
01[12:28] {@Threei}  meanwhile, something we are likely to read 30 years from now and nod in "yeah, still" recognition:
01[12:28] {@Threei}  (GR) Greek officials to meet with troika officials on Friday, February 13th to prepare for higher level talks next week - Troika meeting with Greek officials will seek to assess common ground between the current bailout program and the Greek govt proposal that was outlined yesterday.
06[12:42] * @Threei kicks JOM in the rear
01[12:42] {@Threei}  JPM that is
01[12:45] {@Threei}  hmmm... I must have kicked it in the wrong rear
01[12:46] {@Threei}  is there such thing as front rear?

[12:59] {dino} cramer ragging tsla big time, "mo, larry, & curly had better conference calls"

[13:24] {RonS} am i the only one who finds that totally unsecure?
01[13:25] {@Threei}  I would say I am with you but we already did the same joke on maria/fox...
[13:26] {RonS} pucker reflex:  "we're from the government and we"re here to help"...
01[13:28] {@Threei}  [BP] Ticks higher on press speculation of possible combination with Exxon, notwithstanding regulatory hurdles - Article notes XOM is capable of acquiring any rival despite the regulatory obstacle
[13:28] {RonS} true story, had an econ prof who would grab his ass and say "ohh, ohh...that makes me pucker"...coupla years later some feminists ganged up on him and said it was sexual harrassment and got him fired...
