"The Fly" Is ALIVE! Dead Weekend Open Thread



Have fun! Talk to us. This market is in trouble, let's hear your thoughts.

As for me, I'm in the city all weekend staying at a friend's apartment who is away. I'm loving it.

I'll try to throw some comments up, but until then, talk amongst yourselves.

UPDATE: Monday morning after a crazy weekend and I'm up to my eyeballs in shit. Meanwhile, "the Fly" is suppossedly "burning his blog to the ground" at 10:00am.

If true, I'll miss stuff like this a lot...

"In many ways, we are all stupid fucktards, trying to find our niche, our special skill-- to make enough money so that we can fly to the moon in a monkey suit."

Sweet.

Nice trading DT, I see you have a few 2k days.

Good to see you making money again.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Thanks Ragin. I was poised to make 10x that much and fucked up, so it's bittersweet really.

When you are joining the VO?

nice pic of the dead fly. this week has been good for most all day traders. i'm sure the "investors" have had a hard run this past week though. just looking forward to next week and more trading.

Ragin' Cajun said...

DT,

Sorry to say, but the Cajun will not be joining the VO team.

If there comes I time where I stop working and day trade only, then I will reconsider.

Bluedog said...

DT,

Check out www.slopeofhope.com. It was linked of Ragin's site. He thinks the technicals point towards a big rally on Monday. Whatever happens, it'll be a big day.

It'd be a perfect scene if the fly dies at the exact bottom, with the market crashing and blood spilling on the street. I like the guy but I was very happy to see BWLD blowing down - I just can't stand stupid stocks like BWLD, or CROX, or UA going nuts, nor can I stand silly longs boasting how much dumb money they made on these pigs.

Fly is an asshole, I am glad to see his blog go. His constant cussing at people is really tiresome.

Dinosaur Trader said...

jeff,

I stopped by his blog 20 times a day. I'll miss it.

By the way, it's "cursing." You must be from the south...

DT,

only 20 times a day, I must visit his site a least 100/day.

i just checked his site meter, and he gets over 4,000 hits per day

cussing must be good for business

If you plan to trade the long side on Monday, keep an eye on Yen. I remember in the Feb/Mar market correction, it didn't go below 112. Probably not under that in Aug either. It closed around 110.7 on Friday. It's 110.00 now. There might be be some panic developing, just in time for Fly's funeral. On the other hand, the market is way over-sold. So be careful from either side.

tapeworm said...

i agree with wincity about the panic...i tuned into bloomberg after the asian markets opened tonight, and heard some guy proclaiming that the markets will drop 50 or 60%

then again, i couldn't handle the pressures of the VO, so i would fade whatever i say

High Probability Trader said...

How exactly did "the Fly" become so popular????

Dinosaur Trader said...

He rose to internet stardom with the 2006 "oatmeal craze" as far as I can tell.

Meanwhile, FSLR down 23 points. I just want to send out a quick "fuck off" to JJ before he reminds me that I shouldn't have covered.

-DT

wincity said...

You definitely shouldn't have covered FSLR, DT. Just kidding. Even though annoying, that JJ guy seemed to have some points about FSLR, although as a day trader, I have near 0 interest in facts.
