I was just about to find another line of work but days like today keep us coming back.
I had a great day too, made about $1,500 from trades I put on Friday and yesterday. Could have done a lot better if I would have taken some of the futures trades
but I had sworn off futures a couple of weeks ago. I will have to rethink that.
Anyway thanks for your help, hope this is the botom, sure felt like one.

tomthetrader: Yes ...and the Banks are on Fire
tomthetrader: I said that the EPICENTER are the financials
tomthetrader: more money will be made in UYG and FAS than any other vehicles in here
tomthetrader: already hitting 12-14 on UYG and FAS for over 120K realized since we started
JR Roden: I loaded up on those June $3 calls (I can't hold back when you start to beg like you did on this one)
DE_TTT: Beginning to smell burning fur and melting claws...
tomthetrader: Yes .....that could be a very good money maker as the leverage is so high from .20 cents to 2,00
tomthetrader: we got some of those Calls very low
tomthetrader: and some as high as .75
Nick_H_SanDiego: nice jr & tom
TraderTim: Market internals strong A/D: +1745 Trin: .5
tomthetrader: working it hard
DE_TTT: II Bulls 31%...AAII Bulls 22%...may take awhile to convert them back, no?
TraderTim: last week
Nick_H_SanDiego: BANK rallied back to Mon's hi
tomthetrader: Target 800 SPX futures
tomthetrader: DDM took OFF !
tomthetrader: 20 contracts of NQ at 1188 still held
tomthetrader: YM Futures 10 contracts
les13436: With a rally like, this isn't a low TRIN (.47 ) abnormal??
TraderTim: A/D: +1958 Trin: .4
tomthetrader: but it is due to mainly a handful of stocks
TraderTim: small number of big stocks leading the way!
les13436: UUFFC up 25%
tomthetrader: Love this market
tomthetrader: 2.35 2.36
tomthetrader: Money being made
tomthetrader: I guess I like Home runs !
tomthetrader: and the 24 TF is a major long ball as were the 12 UYG trades that were profitable ...now I am locked and begging for 2.52 there
tomthetrader: Love this market
tomthetrader: Like I said in the e-mail
tomthetrader: when they beat you up all you can do is wake up and do your best
JR Roden: UYG consolidating for another run

ctmhou: Tom, how does one read the Zweig Breadth Thrust indicator?
tomthetrader: Red may know more on the thrust indicator but the basic jest is 9-1 positive a/d line or up down volumes provide THrust for further gains ...it is like a rocket ship the more thrust the longer it lasts
tomthetrader: the Nov rally had great thrust and got 40% gains from bottom
ctmhou: Thanks sir.
tomthetrader: FAS up 20% gain
tomthetrader: I think we take profits ?
tomthetrader: 10% gains "normal" today
ctmhou: GOD! I wish I was around this morning on UYG and FAS. Oh well, there is always another day.
TraderTim: A/D: +1951 Trin: .48 BKX: +10.8% Baby!!!!
Nick_H_SanDiego: we need the antonym of Widow Maker for today's TF
tomthetrader: very successful auction too
redliontrader: Thrust indicator is a 10 day average of the %of advancing issues.. a move from 40% (where we were yesterday) to 61.5% in 10 days is a marker for a bear to bull reversal.. fires very very rarely
Nick_H_SanDiego: thx red
tomthetrader: yes ...thanks ...Prof. Zweig did not make this indicator up it was developed by someone else
TraderTim: NIC: How's this? TF is a widow maker (when it kills ya) or mistress maker (when it lines your pockets)
tomthetrader: 7279 YM via cash 5 long
Nick_H_SanDiego: BANK rolled over
ctmhou: Why YM?
redliontrader: if I remember right, no bull market has starteg without one, but it does generate false positives
tomthetrader: stop now 7250
tomthetrader: 5 contracts
tomthetrader: stops now 7260.00
DE_TTT: Looking forward when XLF goes up 33% in a day...and FAZ consequently goes to zero, naught, nil.

ctmhou: So do the banks.
tomthetrader: 7270 stops
DE_TTT: BYD up 30% as the BUYER of Station Casinos.
tomthetrader: wow !
ctmhou: Tom, how much do you think that naked shorting, no uptick, had to do with the demise of the banks?
tomthetrader: 7275 stops
Nick_H_SanDiego: stay away from SKF...I took $138K loss on SKF options last yr
tomthetrader: I have never played it
TraderTim: SKF (Corpse Creater)
ctmhou: And Nick, our mission as a group, is to re-coup those losses. We will win.
Nick_H_SanDiego: yes definately
tomthetrader: yes !
Nick_H_SanDiego: as Tim says, a teaspoon at a time
tomthetrader: 407.50 RUT
tomthetrader: a BUY
Nick_H_SanDiego: thanks guys
ctmhou: We need to get you back to your 10k a month option strategy again.
DE_TTT: Good piece on Roubini being a bit fast and loose in declaring WFC a zombie. http://www.bankstocks.com/ArticleViewer.aspx?ArticleID=5686&ArticleTypeID=2
tomthetrader: stop YM at 7279 Break even
ctmhou: This chat room is better than an RSS feed.

redliontrader: I'd like to go 100% overnight, maybe 75%, you don't think follow-thru the opening?
redliontrader: overnight news too risky?
tomthetrader: I think we will probably get a gap up that will be able to sell RED
