6/25/2007 1:46:41 PM Mountain Ben:: Thanks Al. That's good advice on the retry
6/25/2007 1:42:05 PM Mountain Al:: Ben, that's a tough call ; +5 is great - but be ready to retry if you get a continuation-my +14 was the same as a +5 and a retry for +9 -just takes practice
my key was the 20 EXMA
6/25/2007 1:31:24 PM Mountain Ben:: Need to get better at riding those fast movers
6/25/2007 1:31:04 PM Mountain Ben:: I got scared out at 19 & took 5.
6/25/2007 1:27:47 PM Mountain Al:: Thanks, Ben -after spending Friday behind the market I was determined to get some rest and be ahead of it today
6/25/2007 1:23:39 PM Mountain Ben:: Great trade Al!

6/25/2007 1:16:00 PM Mountain Al:: stop to 9 -will cover at 4:00 if still in
6/25/2007 1:10:08 PM Mountain Al:: here is where the 20 EXMa is a great aid - it should not be broken on a panic move like this
6/25/2007 1:02:58 PM Mountain Al:: stop 10-there are the hour bar guys
6/25/2007 12:58:12 PM Mountain Al:: stop to 11-lock 12

6/25/2007 12:32:21 PM Mountain Al:: stop 18 - locking 5
6/25/2007 12:28:20 PM Mountain Al:: stop to 20 -have to move it a bit slower to hold in this volatility

6/25/2007 12:00:12 PM Mountain mm:: The condo is 1/3 the size - so it is less a question of moving, but of THOWING IT OUT - daily trips to the dumep !
6/25/2007 11:23:33 AM Mountain Al:: 22 years - I can't think of moving my stuff! Good luck
6/25/2007 11:17:48 AM Mountain mm:: got to run - we bought a condo and have to put our house on the market - after 22 years - and I am a packrat !! Have not done much trading lately.
6/25/2007 11:16:02 AM Mountain mm:: Why in their latest version they dropped the RAPID ORDER ENTRY for futures - which I had used for years, is incomprehensible.
6/25/2007 11:15:29 AM Mountain Al:: sorry to hear that MM
6/25/2007 11:13:45 AM Mountain mm:: I am trying to look it up now, but it has been LOADING for more than ONE HOUR !!! - D Y S F U N C T I O N A L !!!
6/25/2007 11:12:12 AM Mountain mm:: but one has to go to a TROUBLE TICKET icon under ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT. My question was sitting there waiting for someone to answer, which 3 days later had not happened yet ...
6/25/2007 11:10:00 AM Mountain mm:: dysfunctional is a better word - while under HELP they invite you to send an email question - you get a form response, saying that they don't respond to email questions any more ....
6/25/2007 11:07:34 AM Mountain mm:: Al - thanks for asking. IMHO - IB has become unfunctional to a degree that I may take my business somewhere else ....
6/25/2007 9:29:08 AM Mountain Al:: +2

6/25/2007 9:03:21 AM Mountain Al:: took cont. buy 22.5 - too hectic here to type it all in
6/25/2007 8:47:04 AM Mountain sib:: Thanks Al.
6/25/2007 8:45:09 AM Mountain Al:: fixed again-there is no need to reboot your computer-just refresh your browser, or close it, log in again, and retry-if the problem is on your end those steps will fix it-in this case the problem is on my end-the software that fills XGO orders is hangin up the machine - a technocrap problem tha ti need to go dig into
6/25/2007 8:24:49 AM Mountain sib:: Charts stuck again on my end - i rebooted - still stuck.
6/25/2007 8:03:17 AM Mountain Al:: the opening hour has taken on a higher angst since last week

6/25/2007 7:48:55 AM Mountain Al:: charts OK now
6/25/2007 7:48:27 AM Mountain jp2:: I just rebooted and they are fine now.
