[12:48:41] <guy> Update: as you know the market is going sideways

[14:30:45] <signal>
[15:01:03] <signal>
[15:04:20] <fspeculator> stock indices are a joke
[15:04:39] <fspeculator> since fed pumped agressively in april-may to reverse the drop
[15:04:53] <fspeculator> they're inching up little by little day by day
[15:09:20] <fspeculator>
[15:30:01] <guy> Bond Futures closed
[15:34:01] <guy> this has been a very tight and untradable day
[15:34:08] <guy> did anybody make any trades?
[15:34:19] <guy> fspec: you trade today?
[15:34:40] <fspeculator> i was lucky to catch the whole runup in currencies (JPY and EUR)
[15:34:50] <guy> wd!
[15:36:01] <fspeculator>
[15:36:17] <fspeculator> still EUR is the weakest of all (CAD, AUD, etc doing much better)
[15:37:28] <guy> how are you trading them fspec?
[15:37:47] <fspeculator> just the CME futures
[15:38:00] <fspeculator> you mean method?
[15:38:19] <js> ZB was OK
[15:38:44] <fspeculator> i js how do you trade a trend day like this?
[15:39:41] <fspeculator> did you buy the breakout after RE up confirmed?
[15:39:41] <guy> no i meant CME
[15:40:24] <js> ZB was hovering around VAH and once it trended I bought the pause at '24
[15:40:31] <fspeculator> i wouldn't touch spot forex
[15:40:42] <fspeculator> unless i had a small account and wanted to do 10k minilots
[15:41:02] <fspeculator> or if i wanted to trade odd spreads
[15:41:13] <fspeculator> odd=unusual
[15:41:16] <js> I exited at '29 which was yesterday's high or rather 1 tick before that
[15:42:13] <guy> good trading js
[15:42:30] <fspeculator> i asked in pitstock, but didn't get satisfactory answer (imo)
[15:42:33] <js> thx
[15:43:15] <fspeculator> i would expect that currency zone capital inflows/outflows would have impact on assets
[15:43:25] <fspeculator> i.e. if EUR/USD does a -12% in 6mo
[15:43:39] <fspeculator> i'd have expected that assets in eurozone to get depressed in price
[15:43:47] <fspeculator> i.e. bonds, STIRs etc
[15:44:24] <fspeculator> i mean, the capital "flying into safety of USD" (lollllllllllllll) must have been parked somewhere while in euroland
[15:45:17] <fspeculator> to give an example, i'd have sold my german bonds, converted the proceeds into USD and bought something in US (bonds, stocks, tbills, cash under mattress)
[15:46:10] <fspeculator> does my question makes sense to you guys?
[15:47:20] <js> You have to buy Wizetrade fspec then its OK ;)
[15:49:48] <fspeculator> i thought so... Wize is a charting sw
[15:51:47] <js> Wizetrade is the key to riches....for the seller
[16:03:36] <guy> gn everyone
