Coming soon...Phantom Toad of the Opera! - 
coming soon!
3/5/99 Evening
Didn't trade on a day when the market went up 15 OEX points? NOPE, we are DAYTRADERS and didn't really have a good chance to hop in - market took off on open and then "crabbed" sideways for the rest of the day. Look at the TICK today - it was thinking PUTS around 2:20 or so, but then the market started to take off AGAIN. No signals to HOP and didn't trust the 3:00 crowd - so we stayed flat - and the market went UP.

In looking at the CALLS and PUTS we were tracking - none of them moved much today after the POP in the morning until they shot up after 3:00 and NO WAY we woulda chased them.

SO, we are FLAT and happy (hoppy?) for the weekend. Went out to eat and had a great dinner, can sleep well this weekend.
(Little Toad is going skiing for spring break, look for a little toad on the slopes. Wheeeeee.)
Toad Update 3/5/99 #2 15:36 EMAIL and ICQ
Another sideways day after a super start. Looking forward to a great weekend. Hope you have the same.
See you back at the pond on Monday - I'm off to PT - that's physical therapy, not pond therapy. That comes later this evening.
Toad Update 3/5/99 #1 13:06 EMAIL and ICQ
Keeping an eye on this sideways market. Watching for a sell off later today.
3/5/99 9:30
Expecting a blockbuster opening and a sustained rally. We've had our bagels! We're watching . . .
3/4/99 Evening
Two important things tomorrow -
FIRST: the employment figures are released - good employment then the bond people are afraid the FED's would raise interest rates - with bonds dropping. Strong enough situation may affect the stock market.
SECOND: Tomorrow is BAGEL Day and that always affects how we start our day! Cyber Bagels courtesy of Bagels for All - 
see Links page for more info. (I know it's YOUR turn to bring them!)
See you in the morning.
Toad Update 3/4/99 #1 14:54 EMAIL and ICQ
Just can't get into a market that nickel/dimes its way through the afternoon.
Too close to 3:00 to be comfortable hopping. We never did trust that 3:00 gang.
3/4/99 9:30
Strong indicators of a positive open . . . let's see what happens the rest of the day.
3/3/99 Evening
Hey, this shouldn't make me TIRED - just sat and watched.....and watched.....and worried..... and maybe I swore (once)....and watched.......ate lunch while I was watching......and watched.... BUT never doubted it. Errrrrr....Mrs. Toad said "Hey, this market is going down today." (What does she know??)
SO, see you in the morning...
Toad Update 3/3/99 #2 15:15 EMAIL and ICQ
We hopped out of the March 615 puts (OEYOC) at $18.
Tired from watching that sucker.
Toad Update 3/3/99 #1 11:02 EMAIL and ICQ
Just hopped into 10 contracts of Mar 615 puts (OEYOC) at $16.
Will let you know when we hop out.
3/3/99 9:35
Good morning, looking at the pond and the market is going up...
3/2/99 Evening
OK, we didn't trade today. Really wanted to trade today, the signals weren't there - ALMOST hopped into a put around 3:00 and then it looked like it was turning UP. It didn't and we didn't either.
Good report from ABS Live Drew Robertson of ABS live. If you haven't signed up for their FREE emails - do it! Drew said: "Daytrading? Forget it. You have to trade this market hour by hour. And avoid the most volatile stocks unless your portfolio has heavy duty shocks."

OH well, the put we DIDN'T purchase closed out at 17 1/2!

See you in the morning...
Toad Update 3/2/99 #1 14:05 EMAIL and ICQ
Heavy pressure on myself to trade today - but it just hasn't been there.
Had we purchased the ever popular March 620puts (OEYOD) around 10:30, they would be DOWN 1/2 now.
Had we purchased the March 620calls (OEYCD) around noon, they would be DOWN $1 now.
So, we are still FLAT and watching.
3/2/99 9:38
Good morning, its upward pressure today. Stay tuned...
3/1/99 Evening
Don't know if any of you are watching the CNBC special all this week about Daytraders - thought we'd let you know when we are going to be covered..........

    Let's check the schedule........

        uhem......

            we don't seem to be on it......

                Wonder how that hoppened?

                  Well, see you in the morning.

Toad Update 3/1/99 #2 15:39 EMAIL and ICQ
We are DONE for the day.
Not going to hop into this pond today. Another weird market, and we never got any clean signals today. That's probably good, this sucker could go any which way. We have been "range bound" - that doesn't sound comfortable does it?
Hit new highs not too long ago and we are STILL not going in.
Toad Update 3/1/99 #1 13:48 EMAIL and ICQ
Still sitting by the side of the pond.
Tempted? sure. Hop? - not yet.
Your FLAT Toad.
3/1/99 11:20
Haven't seen anything yet - still watching...
3/1/99 9:30
Good morning, sitting by the pond, drinking coffee and watching...

2/26/99 Evening
Drew Robertson of ABS live said "What a mess today." and "The best thing to do today was to stay home."

OUCH. We hopped and then the market went against us, looked like it was dumping and it turned around. SO, we dumped our position at a loss to avoid a larger loss and to keep from holding over.
Toad Update 2/26/99 #2 13:50 EMAIL and ICQ
We are out of the Mar620 puts (OEYOD) at a loss. Hopped out at 16 3/8.
OUCH.
Toad Update 2/26/99 #1 12:18 EMAIL and ICQ
We hopped into 10 contracts of the ever popular Mar 620 puts (OEYOD) at 18 1/8.
Will let you know when we hop.
2/26/99 9:50
Did someone say an UP market? Naaaaaah, don't blame this on the bagels.
2/26/99 9:25
Looks like an UP market today - must be the bagels!
2/25/99 Evening
We are over 100% return year-to-date - thought we were gonna hit it on Monday...
Friday is BAGEL DAY! Cyber Bagels courtesy of Bagels for All - 
see Links page for more info. (I'm not sure who is to bring them - is it YOUR turn?) - see you by the pond.
2/25/99 17:20
We opened the Daytrader Toad Chat room again today. After we closed out of the position.

We have had a lot of requests to open the room during the trading day. We have trouble trading and get bogged down when we try to do too many things at the same time. We did it last year for two or three days and everyone enjoyed the chats, but the Toad couldn't get hopping.
SO, keeping in mind our mission is to HOP we won't open the room during trading hours. Might try to open the room on a regular basis, if we do we will let you know.
Toad Update 2/25/99 #3 13:53 EMAIL and ICQ
Well, we hopped out of the March 620 puts (OEYOD) at 17 1/4.
We missed 19 1/2 earlier today - thought it would go higher and had pulled our order to sell - dummy we were.
But we are out at 17 1/4.
Toad Update 2/25/99 #2 11:21 EMAIL and ICQ
THANKS folks. Someone sent an email that this is the SAME PUT at the SAME PRICE that we bought on Monday.....
Deja Vu?
Toad Update 2/25/99 #1 11:11 EMAIL and ICQ
We just hopped into 10 contracts of the Mar 620 puts (OEYOD) at 15 1/4.
Will let you know when we hop
2/25/99 9:30
Looks like an up, no - down, no - up, no - down opening today... (Glad we are FLAT!) Stay tuned.
2/24/99 Evening
Oops - Did we cause that??? Right after our update went out - the market plummeted. That will teach us to sit by the pond wishing for more activity! Be careful what you wish for - you may get it...
Didn't hop today - SCW - almost got into the Mar 640 puts (OEYOH) and wimped out... was getting really late in the trading day for us to get into the pond. SCW made some bucks OR we'd be holding over - I hate that...
See you in the morning...
Toad Update 2/24/99 #1 13:39 EMAIL and ICQ
Sort of like watching a meandering stream rather than a pond. Not much happening again today.
2/24/99 9:30
Expectations are for a strong open and upward trend today. Reports are The Man will say the same things to the House today! Did you really understand what he was saying yesterday?
2/23/99 Evening
We normally see more action when The Man (Dr. G) speaks - not much today, see you in the morning.
Toad Update 2/23/99 #2 15:05 EMAIL and ICQ
Unlike some days when The Man speaks, this market is going no where today. So, I'm going to PT - that's physical therapy, not pond therapy. See you in the morning.
Toad Update 2/23/99 #1 13:12 EMAIL and ICQ
A rather screwy market today. Our money is still in the strongbox by the pond!
2/23/99 9:35
Dr. G Well, The Man speaks at 10:00; the futures market is sorta neutral; the market shows an upward bias . . . could be another interesting day here by the pond. Stay tuned!
2/22/99 Evening
WHEW!

Glad to see today end! As most of you know, we usually track three calls and three puts until we decide what to hop into. Well, we were so excited about hopping today - we just clicked on the 620 PUT when we wanted to hop into the CALL!!

Talk about a heart attack! When we discovered what we had done, well - we dumped the puts and cried. Then the market was still going with us - (the way we shoulda hopped) - we hopped into the calls...

It worked out - we cut our losses and only paid commissions. I think we learned a lesson today. . .

By the way, had we hopped into the correct option (A CALL!) when we originally hopped - well, we woulda made some bucks today... Going to go pour another glass of wine. See you in the morning.
Toad Update 2/22/99 #4 14:40 EMAIL and ICQ
Just hopped out of the Mar 625 calls (OEYCE) at 20 1/2.

We were looking at calls and puts. Bought the wrong thing. Wanted to buy calls and bought puts! Maybe still have flu. We're getting out as quickly as we can. Stay tuned. Sorry.

Don't even look for us here on OPTIONS EXPIRATION FRIDAY!
We don't trade on Options Expiration Friday. We did have our regular Friday bagels today - Cyber Bagels courtesy of Bagels for All - 
see Links page for more info.
TO Mrs. Toad:
    Mrs. Toad     Happy Anniversary Dear - thanks for everything. I love you. The Toad
Toad Update 2/18/99 #1 14:20 EMAIL and ICQ
Not sure why I stayed watching the market today - would have had to be a real KILLER of a move to cause us to hop the day before OPTIONS EXPIRATION FRIDAY!
We are celebrating our wedding anniversary tonight and will be going out to dinner with friends.
Will NOT be trading or watching the pond tomorrow, you know how we feel about OPTIONS EXPIRATION FRIDAY! If you trade tomorrow, you trade TOADLESS - we DON'T TRADE on these days.
We will have bagels in the morning - but no market.
SO, have a good day and think of us as we celebrate our anniversary.
2/18/99 9:30
Good morning - Globex is UP!
2/17/99 Evening
By the way - sorry Michael Dell. See you in the morning.
Toad Update 2/17/99 #1 Evening EMAIL and ICQ
Didn't trust the market today (could be because it's Options Expiration Week - have I ever mentioned that I hate Options Expiration Week?) - wanted to trade a put around 2:00 and didn't know if the market had enough downward pressure to get our money out in time. Well, you see what happened - the tick backed off and we didn't think it would last - WRONG.


2/17/99 9:30
Good morning, we are here by the pond, watching the market. Stay tuned...
2/16/99 Evening
Didn't hop today, missed the puts at 13:00 - that shoulda been the play. Will have to hop on Wednesday, see you in the morning...
2/16/99 9:30
Nice to be back by the pond feeling almost human (?) again. After last week's ups and downs, we're interested in what kind of a week we'll have - don't forget: it's options expiration week!!

Toad Update 2/12/99 #1 13:51 EMAIL and ICQ
Hello, we are back with the living (sort of) and have been watching the pond.
Didn't trust our reaction time to hop in earlier today because we didn't want to have you all follow a delirious toad into the pond when we are facing a three day weekend.

How appropriate - "President's Day"....
So, we are still here, just about to have a bowl of chicken fly soup for lunch.
Will let you know if we get too tempted and hop.
2/12/99 9:30
Had our bagels this morning; starting to feel a little more toadlike again. We'll sit by the pond today and see how it goes!
Stay tuned . . .
2/11/99 18:30
Woke up this afternoon and tried to watch CNBC to see what the market was doing. "NO WAY!" said Mrs. Toad. Toad found the remote control - that's a start! And, tradition says, "Friday is bagel day by the pond."
2/11/99 9:25
Thank you, Toadsters, for all the get well wishes and ecards. Mrs. Toad says you're "sweet" - the Toad wouldn't say exactly that, but we do appreciate your expressions of cheer! Really hope to be back by the pond on Friday!
Toad Update from the sick bay 2/10/99 #1 9:28 EMAIL and ICQ
We are down and out - both of your friendly Toads are sick and staying out of the pond today.

The only place we are hopping into is the BED!
Good trading toadless,
The sick Toads
2/9/99 Evening
It's pretty bad here by the pond, Mrs. Toad has been helping and she has learned more than she wanted to about updating the site and sending out email/ICQ messages. Bad news is that both Toad and Mrs. Toad have the flu.

We might both take off tomorrow if one of us doesn't feel better. Even the fly noodle soup, as recommended by one of the Toadsters, hasn't helped. Will update the site and let you know if we are going to take a "sick day."

Also, our communications screwed up earlier today, we hopped out of the Feb 610 puts (OEYNB) at 10 1/2 not 11. I wanted at least $11, but was going downhill fast - so we changed it from $12 sell to 10 1/2 and hopped out. Then I went back to bed and Mrs. Toad sent the emails and ICQ's - she knew I was looking for 1 and we got more than $1 yesterday - so she thought we got $11 - didn't, only got 10 1/2. BUT, for those Toadsters who stayed in - that sucker hit $13 today!
Hope to see you in the morning...
2/9/99 14:18
Even a sick toad can hop! Will update our activity tonight.
Toad Update 2/9/99 #2 13:30 EMAIL and ICQ

The Toad has dragged himself to the pond again this morning. Just sitting here watching - hope to make it through the day! Flu is not a nice word to toads!
