(1:37 PM) Fulkdaddy: Tom, we had a gap down and fill and rollover to close at LOD yesterday
(1:38 PM) Fulkdaddy: Today we have a gap up and run only to roll over again...if we finish LOD, would this indicate a change in character for this up move?\
(1:39 PM) Fulkdaddy: for the short-term
(1:39 PM) Fulkdaddy: I would like to see a big whack to scare people out..then we can run it up big
tomthetrader: should have a good rally into the close today
tomthetrader: but if we get a selloff ...it would really provide a great entry sub 800
(1:42 PM) Fulkdaddy: It just feels like the market ran too far, too fast and needs to consolidate the gains before the next rip higher
tomthetrader: depends on your risk and drwdown ability
(1:42 PM) Fulkdaddy: low to both
tomthetrader: it is a better bet to see the real BUY signals
tomthetrader: as we drop down to fill the gap
(1:44 PM) Fulkdaddy: I still do not understand why gaps get filled
tomthetrader: Just nature !
tomthetrader: It is the natural occurrences of math
tomthetrader: which i am very poor at 1
tomthetrader: ....I am sure we have a mean reversion expert who could explain 100 years of gaps filling and trend days
tomthetrader: but I am way too dumb for that .
(1:46 PM) Fulkdaddy: Kass covering GS $112.50 short trade at 108 and S&P 500 short rentals

(2:09 PM) Fulkdaddy: Is a bounce at 800-804 too obvious?
(2:09 PM) Fulkdaddy: Do they have to take it below it to wipe out the stops?
tomthetrader: seems like a lot of stops have been hit
tomthetrader: we have some pretty good number
tomthetrader: Market is acting very well

tomthetrader: I see nothinbg really negative here
(2:21 PM) Fulkdaddy: I agree Tom...they have just run too far too fast?
tomthetrader: I am out of finaNCIALA so i hope they do whatdave and anyone short wants ...I want to see the market handle bad news well
tomthetrader: and so far they got ecastatic on good news ( froth0 now are neutral on bad news from all sorts of rumors and a bad auction which shows Bonds and stocks are 'coupled' for now

(2:58 PM) Fulkdaddy: crushed since
tomthetrader: a few jobs too
(2:58 PM) Fulkdaddy: her idea of getting conservative in this bear was by going from 65% equities to 60%
tomthetrader: as low as Marty Zweig got was 79% long
(2:59 PM) Fulkdaddy: WOW!

tomthetrader: good stock picking and rotation
tomthetrader: remember the commodity rally
tomthetrader: all the rallies in this bear have been good ones
tomthetrader: we needed this to get the short term indies in tact
(3:02 PM) Fulkdaddy: This is the type of selloff I want to see to get the weak holders out so we can run it up without them
(3:02 PM) TraderTim: yes but watch how quickly it makes US the "weak" hands
(3:03 PM) TraderTim: hold tight
(3:04 PM) pupster: gaps filled on UYG and FAS
(3:05 PM) TraderTim: ES 15min coming up on 200 which held the 3/11 and 3/20 pullback/retracement for this rally

tomthetrader: It gave the data perfect on my TTT BUY
(3:15 PM) TraderTim: yes
(3:15 PM) Fulkdaddy: 50% is 744

(3:17 PM) TraderTim: I was going from low of beginning of rally .... all of them are good to know
tomthetrader: we were 40 contracts long with 100's of options !
tomthetrader: Nov 761.50
(3:17 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: yes the Fib confluence is just as important
tomthetrader: as we were on march 3rd
(3:18 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: as taught by Carolyn Borden and Robert Miner
(3:18 PM) TraderTim: yes
(3:18 PM) Fulkdaddy: pulled back to the uptrend line on the hourly...everything looks fine if this bounce holds

(3:38 PM) Fulkdaddy: What will the close be Tom?
(3:39 PM) Nick_H_SanDiego: Tim: yes...and the 2 bars show the price rejection, too
tomthetrader: I hope 802 but it would be best for the market to "retest' 792.50
(3:41 PM) TraderTim: agree. retest would be better for us.
(3:42 PM) Fulkdaddy: great analysis!
(3:43 PM) TraderTim: my speaker was sputtering . . . summarize "great analysis"
(3:43 PM) TraderTim: A/D: -15 Trin: 1.74 P/C: .86 BKX: +.5%
(3:44 PM) TraderTim: DRYS: -15%
tomthetrader: more or less the bear market rally vs new bull market will be tested as if we are in a new bull we should rally ery hard at retest if not 792.50 should go to 741 quickly
(3:45 PM) les13436: If we think housing has bottomed, & XHB is going higher, a couple of real spec plays could be CHB & HOV, CHB accounts for 3.9% of XHB holdings and HOV accounts for 6.5%. Seems if volume continues higher in XHB then these have to be accumulated (by XHB) to continue the % of holdings.
(3:46 PM) les13436: HOV short int is 29.1%, good point!
(3:46 PM) les13436: CHB is 9.5%
(3:48 PM) les13436: Hard to believe somebody would short a $1.73 stock????
(3:49 PM) Fulkdaddy: If it goes to .86 cents it is a 50% gain!
(3:50 PM) Fulkdaddy: If they go out of business, there are no taxes to pay on the gains
