(9:46 AM) RetteTen4: I have3 upside targets and one downside hmmm
(9:46 AM) thomas_Poland: I prefer not to say what my downside target for today is
(9:47 AM) thomas_Poland: hope we will not get there
(9:48 AM) RetteTen4: my downside target is 8 335 dow futures...but that does not mean it will get there today
(9:49 AM) thomas_Poland: be carefull at 10:00 .. news
(9:50 AM) RetteTen4: sorry got booted
(9:51 AM) redliontrader: trin moving up, tick down
(9:52 AM) RetteTen4: I was taught that when a candle makes a double bottom...the tail part of both the candles is the same....either the high or the low....price will always come back to break that high or low....even if it breaks it by one point.....I make a line then when that happens and use it as targets then...
(9:52 AM) RetteTen4: mean candles must be next to each other...gosh hope explained it well.......nice to have a target....just when it will do it...can be a few days though
(9:53 AM) redliontrader: short 1 ym
(9:54 AM) redliontrader: going for Tom's fade
(9:54 AM) JR Roden: Ani - so explain how your candles example applies to the current chart.
(9:54 AM) JR Roden: Please
(9:56 AM) RetteTen4: I am not very good at explaining that well....but will try......today three times on the dow futures candles are next to each making a double top and one double bottom...I will give u the price...so u can see on ur graph....price will break those levels....only problem one does not know when...but when price heads to that direction then u I use it as a target
(9:56 AM) RetteTen4: on dow futures 5 min....candle double top 8 550.....8 523..... 8512
(9:57 AM) RetteTen4: those will break
(9:57 AM) RetteTen4: and double bottom candle at 8 335
(9:57 AM) RetteTen4: hell excuse my typos eeeeeeeeeeek
(9:57 AM) JR Roden: great. thanks
(9:59 AM) Fulkdaddy: A/D only got to 2.4 to 1
(9:59 AM) RetteTen4: does it make sense...I mean did I explain all right...so easy to show it on a graph....at times I do that in each time frame...when u see the candles next to each making a double top or bottom lets say on a four hour chart...it took 9 days to break that level...
(9:59 AM) Fulkdaddy: Now 2 to 1
(9:59 AM) RetteTen4: that was my longest
(9:59 AM) Fulkdaddy: Worst shopping season since 1970

(10:02 AM) RetteTen4: ok thanx....
(10:02 AM) RetteTen4: learning the way u speak lol ty
(10:03 AM) Fulkdaddy: Initially, the market is handling the news quite well!
(10:04 AM) JR Roden: Yeah, that's a big bounce back up.
(10:05 AM) berniectx: horrible eco data hard to play
(10:06 AM) redliontrader: add 1 ym short
(10:11 AM) redliontrader: NAZ strong, dow lagging
(10:11 AM) RetteTen4: don't know if I should close....cos M pattern normally goes back up to the neck

(10:31 AM) TraderTim: FULK: Did you see that GMAC (now being a bank) can now make auto loans to people with only 620 FICO scores versus the way they used to with 700 (with money from taxpayers)? Isn't making subprime loans what got us in the trouble in the first place????

(12:59 PM) thomas_Poland: we should see 888 in ES today
(1:01 PM) Fulkdaddy: APPL: AAPL's stock is taking a hit again on Steve Jobs' health rumors once again. This time they're on the web-site Gizmodo suggesting that his health is the reason for the company backing out of MacWorld. Obviously, I can't speak to his health but AAPL's not backing out of MacWorld 'til 2010, so the logic is a bit twisted. Again, just another rumor hitting the mill.
(1:01 PM) Fulkdaddy: Rev on the site of the AAPL rumor: http://gizmodo.com/5120687/steve-jobs-health-declining-rapidly-reason-for-macworld-cancellation
(1:03 PM) RetteTen4: looking at ES graph..should come back to break 873.52....cos of that candle..maybe good place to re-enter a long....am waiting
(1:05 PM) thomas_Poland: Ani did you send me email?
(1:07 PM) RetteTen4: nope sorry....sent one to Tom...but I did not explain it well...let me redo it later when market is closed...but there is not much to it....all u look for is for two candles next to each that either make a double top or bottom....does not matter where the candles are...u just look at two candles next to each other...
(1:08 PM) thomas_Poland: What was the course ?
(1:08 PM) thefish102: Fulk, thanks for the aapl news (that is an old rumor, surprised it had this kind of effect)
tomthetrader: Yes Thank you ...Got the same news
tomthetrader: Market hanging tough
(1:10 PM) Fulkdaddy: Are you going to cover your Main fund longs on Friday?
tomthetrader: It depends on how overstretched we are Dave ....Right now 90% long Main and 70 % Traders
tomthetrader: We should take advantage of any rally to sell with the market getting over bought short term
tomthetrader: but our stops should do OK aand we may take profits on the DDM if we hit 200 Up
tomthetrader: may establish a new position in ES at 880.00 cash
tomthetrader: right here for a day trade
tomthetrader: A/D holding up ?
(1:14 PM) vishal8: nyse AD +1288
tomthetrader: Added 2 long ES at 880.00
tomthetrader: 4 point stop back or .5% trailing
tomthetrader: AAPL coming back
tomthetrader: from rumors
tomthetrader: NYSE acting poor ....and volume very low
tomthetrader: waiting on the waiters ?
tomthetrader: 880.00 adding 2 more units long
tomthetrader: so we will have 4 long ES from 880.00 cash
tomthetrader: stop Hard on 876.00 ...will take off manually hear by voice and written
tomthetrader: if we decide to hold through tomorrows close
tomthetrader: EVERYONE OK ?
tomthetrader: Let me know if you have any questions

(2:34 PM) redliontrader: charts look strong/long trin, vix and tick all doing the right things
(2:34 PM) redliontrader: sold 1/3 of YM at 8577
tomthetrader: 882.50 stop on 4 ES
(2:36 PM) thomas_Poland: most indicators from Jason are becoming overbought
tomthetrader: Yes ..I think we still have 100-150 points Dow left
(2:37 PM) thomas_Poland: yes .. my forecast was 890 Spx 888 ES

tomthetrader: 6 futures long plus 5000 DDM
tomthetrader: In traders
(2:42 PM) TraderTim: gotcha
(2:42 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Did you just get stopped out of YM?
(2:44 PM) redliontrader: added a back 1 ym @ 8553 (non cash)
tomthetrader: stop was 8575 cash
(2:45 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: ah
(2:46 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: so can you explain theoretically what does it mean when the futures > cash or futures < cash...how do we interpret the negative or positive divergence between future and cash?
(2:56 PM) redliontrader: Yes, I would like to know the answer to nicks question too. And what is the overnight fair value about?
(3:01 PM) thomas_Poland: there is no overnight fairvalue
(3:01 PM) thomas_Poland: or it does not matter at all
(3:01 PM) thomas_Poland: you need cash and futures to have fairvalue
(3:03 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Tom you're expecting a rally into the close?
(3:03 PM) redliontrader: yes, there is always a fair value, but is that the theoretical differece between the cash market and the contract price?
(3:04 PM) thomas_Poland: FV = S [1 + (I - D)]
(3:04 PM) thomas_Poland: this is fair value
(3:05 PM) thomas_Poland: and S is Spx
(3:05 PM) thomas_Poland: so you can't have fair value at nigh
(3:05 PM) thomas_Poland: night
(3:05 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: So the future is always higher than cash by the amount of time premium left in the future contract (like options)
(3:05 PM) thomas_Poland: no
(3:05 PM) thomas_Poland: like now futures are below cash
(3:06 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: CNBC does broadcast fair value at nite...I think they use the afterhours action in the 500 stocks and calc fair value
(3:06 PM) thomas_Poland: don't even look at CNBC fair value
(3:06 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Ok so futures < cash is the expectation that the index will be lower in the future
(3:06 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: is that correct?
(3:06 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: that is bearish, right?
(3:06 PM) thomas_Poland: fair value is the value of S&P 500 Index, plus the interest I pay my broker to buy all of the stocks in it, minus all of the dividend checks I get from those stocks.
(3:06 PM) thomas_Poland: No nick
(3:07 PM) redliontrader: y, but now there is a 41 point diff between YM and DOW, does that theoritically track the formula you sent TP?
(3:07 PM) thomas_Poland: it is not bearish ... of course in my opinion
(3:07 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: yes and I think at nite the manually calculate the SP500 index from the 500 underlying stocks
(3:07 PM) thomas_Poland: it should
(3:07 PM) thomas_Poland: it depends what you put in those letters right?
(3:07 PM) redliontrader: K, now I understand a little more
(3:07 PM) thomas_Poland: the night fair value is sh...
(3:08 PM) thomas_Poland: and if you want you can look at it
(3:08 PM) thomas_Poland: but it is sh..
(3:08 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Red, I've reasearched that issue of the fair value at nite that the broadcast on CNBC...let me send you a link...it explains it pretty well
(3:08 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: So Thomas the fact that the YM is 41 under DJIA cash right now does not really mean anything other than the dividends?
(3:09 PM) redliontrader: and current interest rate
(3:09 PM) thomas_Poland: and interest?
(3:09 PM) thomas_Poland: yes
(3:09 PM) thomas_Poland:
(3:09 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: so that gap should close as we get closer to march and on expiration day they should be equal, right?
(3:10 PM) thomas_Poland: on expiration they should be equal
(3:10 PM) thomas_Poland: no interest
(3:10 PM) thomas_Poland: no dividend
(3:10 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Ok YM is back to 200sma on 5 min chart
(3:10 PM) TraderTim: Nick: I assume you are using 24 hour chart
(3:11 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: yes
(3:11 PM) thomas_Poland: Nick use day session
(3:11 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: 24 hr chart on the march contract only (no continuous)
(3:11 PM) TraderTim: yep on day session only it is not near 200 yet
(3:12 PM) RetteTen4: looks like M pattern again
(3:12 PM) thomas_Poland: I use 24 hour session only at globex
(3:12 PM) TraderTim: I do same as TP
(3:13 PM) thomas_Poland: and it works
(3:13 PM) thomas_Poland: I mean 200 sma
(3:13 PM) thomas_Poland: and sometimes it works also on day session but I would use 200 sma only from day session dat
(3:13 PM) thomas_Poland: data
(3:13 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: ok thx Thomas
(3:13 PM) thomas_Poland: Tim when does TF close?
(3:13 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: TF has same hours now as ES and YM
(3:14 PM) RetteTen4: 873.51 my target then 880.74...hope works out....
(3:14 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: No...wait I'm wrong on that..
(3:14 PM) thomas_Poland: I think you wrong Nick
(3:14 PM) thomas_Poland: my charts look strange for TF
(3:14 PM) thomas_Poland: so it has to be different
(3:14 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: I reasearched this a couple of weeks ago and posted it here in the group...forgot the result!
(3:15 PM) thomas_Poland: Nick how does this move down from 12:05 look like?? corrective or impulse?
(3:15 PM) RetteTen4: what did u research Nick?
(3:15 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Red, here is the link for Fair Value explanation
(3:16 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: http://www.indexarb.com/#whatMeansHmPgTbl
(3:16 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: I researched the trading hours of TF on the ICE exchange
tomthetrader: What is it ?
tomthetrader: I have been having problems with TF
(3:16 PM) TraderTim: Tom just verifed that TF closes at 4:15 and then 2 hours off
(3:16 PM) RetteTen4: Nick what does mean
tomthetrader: OK that is what I just told TIM
(3:17 PM) TraderTim: yep
(3:17 PM) RetteTen4: what does TF stand for...sorry for questions
(3:17 PM) TraderTim: Russell 2000 mini futures
(3:17 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: TF is the future for the Rusell2000 index
(3:18 PM) RetteTen4: oh ok thanx
(3:18 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: mini Russell = TF
(3:18 PM) RetteTen4: never looked at the Russell
tomthetrader: Ani ...you should look into it
(3:18 PM) RetteTen4: Tom explain why
tomthetrader: It used to be ER2 until ICE bought it out
tomthetrader: Now TF and gives you High beta at $100 per point
tomthetrader: very volatile but easy to trade ...we started buying at 375 and shot up to near 500
(3:19 PM) RetteTen4: hmm u saying u make more money with the TF?
(3:19 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: TF trades from 8pm new york time, until 6pm new york time next day (2 hours off). Settlement is at 4:15pm ny time
tomthetrader: Thank you
(3:19 PM) RetteTen4: gee thanx for info
(3:20 PM) thomas_Poland: I have some data between 4:15 and 6
(3:20 PM) thomas_Poland: on my charts
(3:20 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Ani, just be careful with TF it is very volatile...Tom calls it the widow maker
tomthetrader: TF is a great play if you think we are entering a longer term Bear rally or new bull market
(3:20 PM) thomas_Poland: for TF
(3:20 PM) RetteTen4: ok...I will just open the chart and watch it a while
(3:20 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Yes Thomas, TF trades until 6pm ny time
(3:20 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: then closes for 2 hrs
(3:20 PM) thomas_Poland: ok
(3:20 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: then opens again at 8pm
(3:20 PM) thomas_Poland: thanks
(3:21 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: the 4:15 is just the settlement time
(3:21 PM) TraderTim: thx NICK
(3:21 PM) thomas_Poland: strangge because almost no action after 4:15
(3:21 PM) thomas_Poland: they should make it the same as ES
(3:21 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: I agree
(3:21 PM) RetteTen4: just looked at what is on my broker list...can't trade it
(3:21 PM) thomas_Poland: and Nick .. indexarb is academic
(3:21 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: At least the YM and ES have synched their times
(3:21 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: they used to be different, too

(3:23 PM) RetteTen4: ok and a few US commodities like coffee soya etc....and currencies...maybe a good thing lol

(3:26 PM) thomas_Poland: resistatnace 475.7 TF
(3:26 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Thomas that IndexArb site is pretty cool. It shows you real-time graphs of where mispricing will occur between the index and future and where to expect index arb programs to kick-in. They update the charts daily.
(3:26 PM) TraderTim: Go TF
(3:27 PM) RetteTen4: they goes my profit grrr
(3:27 PM) thomas_Poland: Nick it is not cool
(3:27 PM) thomas_Poland: it is academic
(3:27 PM) thomas_Poland: but good for learning ?
(3:28 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Well the chart is good...for example on the YM, today the exact midpoint is that the YM should be -49 from the Dow cash index.
(3:28 PM) thomas_Poland: Nick does your IM work?
(3:28 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: if it hits -71.2, you can expect sell programs on the Dow, which weirdly causes the Future to go up
(3:28 PM) thomas_Poland: Tom any imbalances today?
(3:28 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: yes it should
(3:29 PM) TTTMichael: I think tomorrow is normal hours.
(3:29 PM) thomas_Poland: when I try to IM you it says you accept only something ..

(4:12 PM) JR Roden: That's what I like about this group, is we can make fun of each other, while we are making cash! And everybody is happy for everyone else's success.
tomthetrader: great logic and thinking . . . stupendous
