Have I mentioned that it was a great game?

Jaguars1/15/00 Saturday Evening

    W O W !     It was a great game!
  Jaguars   62     -     Fins   7


1/14/00 Friday Evening         OEX  + 9.56
Been looking at a lot of charts from today, take a look at some charts of both the calls and puts; it was a day to stay outta the pond! Notice that you coulda lost money this afternoon on both the puts and the calls because we stayed in a trading range from right before noon.   There were a couple of opportunities to make 1/2 - but they didn't last long.   Think we put it best on Update #2 today when we said: ...it was an "ugly dog" we were following and we tried to push a trade.Jaguars

Remember, we are off on Monday and watch the Jaguars tomorrow! Look for us at the game on Saturday (12:30 kickoff) and look for us at the beach on Monday!


Toad Update 1/14/00 #4 15:44 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Just hopped out of the Jan 800 puts at 8.     Let's see.... Yep, we shoulda stayed OUT OF THE POND.
Toad Update 1/14/00 #3 15:00 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Just hopped into 5 contracts of the Jan 800 puts OEXMT at 9.
Will let you know when we hop out - TODAY.
Toad Update 1/14/00 #2 14:54 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

This is an "ugly dog" we are following. Hate being in this position, feels like we are trying to push a trade when the signals aren't on our side.
OEX just dropped 4 points and now?   I'm ready for a three day weekend - how about you.   Still watching...
Toad Update 1/14/00 #1 13:50 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

We looked at purchasing the Jan 790 calls OEZAR at 13 1/2 or the Jan 795 calls OEZAS at 10. We didn't hop in and that is exactly where they are right now.   They haven't changed much and it looks like they might be dropping.
It's tough to consider puts with the market this high, looks like we are stuck between 795 and 800 - if we hop, it will be for a small bit and back out. Stay tuned.
1/14/00   9:30
Dr. G says not a serious problem and the CPI says inflation isn't a problem. SO it looks like we can all live with a .25% increase in interest rates. Market's headed UP, stay tuned...
1/13/00 Thursday Evening         OEX  + 5.23
The Jan 790 calls finished DOWN a buck from where we didn't enter. Glad we are FLAT.
Dr. G - THE MAN I know it's YOUR turn to bring the Bagels!Bill Gates will be the "Chief Software Architect" of MSFT and Steve Ballmer will be the new CEO. They can still run the Govt. for us.
Tomorrow is BAGEL day! I brought them last week - so it's YOUR TURN to bring the bagels!       But before the bagels, Dr. G speaks tonight at the Economics Club of New York -     hang on folks.     See you in the morning.

Toad Update 1/13/00 #2 15:36 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

We wanted to hop into the Jan 790 calls OEZAR. But the signals kept saying NOPE. It did go up about a buck for a real short period of time, now it's around where we woulda entered. Maybe Bagel day will be better for us!
We felt the market would probably go up at 3:00 and back down at 3:15 and that's exactly what happened.     Have several Toadsters who suspect manipulation, what do YOU think?     Answers from Oliver Stone will be thrown out.
Toad Update 1/13/00 #1 12:52 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Wow, whata day, thought we'd do something today and then.
OEX up 0.08
TICK is -40
YAWN is     oops, that was me...
By the pond watching, stay tuned.

Good morning, PPI looks like "modest pressure" to raise rates and Dr. G is speaking tonight.... stay tuned...
1/12/00 Wednesday Evening         OEX  - 2.52
If you are playing splits, it looks like MSFT is going to split, er... the government wants to split Bill Gates, er... Whatcha say, we leave MicroSoft ALONE!
Mentioned sometime ago that we should let MSFT run the government: it would be much more efficient, we would all get stock options, our taxes would be around $89.99/quarter (with manditory upgrades) and, of course, Internet Explorer would come bundled with everything!
PPI numbers come out in the morning. See you then...
Toad Update 1/12/00 #2 15:00 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Got back a bit ago and saw that the market wanted to go down right after 2:00 and then changed it's mind.
Not doing much now, probably good we weren't here at 2:00!
Back by the pond, with our shiny Toad teeth, watching the market.
Toad Update 1/12/00 #1 12:10 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

I have a dental appointment at 1:00 today, will be leaving the pond around 12:30 (after I brush my teeth) expect to be back pondside around 2:00.
Will send out an update as soon as I get back with my clean choppers.
1/12/00   9:30
Yahoo is going to split and it's another nice day here at the pond. Stay tuned...
1/11/00 Tuesday Evening         OEX  - 5.67
MSFT down, INTC up - go figure. Read & heard a bunch of commentaries about today, my favorite went something like this: "Today's drop in the market during the last hour of trading will be followed by another retracement or if it goes back up it will be an indication that the rally has resumed."
DUH!   See you in the morning.
Toad Update 1/11/00 #2 16:28 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Our mouse is tired today, we chased the Jan 790 puts OEZMR right at 3:00 and when the market came back up, we cancelled the order. The market turned back down and we SCW (Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda) hopped in at 12 - but that was the HIGH OF THE DAY.
Yep, we sure don't trust the after 3:00 crowd - and that includes today.
CNBC said it "may have been the bonds that caused the late sell off, but the financials didn't fall in tandem." GO FIGURE!
See you in the morning - Mrs. Toad gets back home tomorrow!
Toad Update 1/11/00 #1 12:49 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Well, CNBC just said it's a calm trading day - the calmest of the year so far.
Hmmm...... we are eating lunch and watching the market, stay tuned.
1/11/00   9:35
Nice and sunny by the pond today. We're going to watch the market and enjoy this great mid-January weather this morning. Stay tuned. . .
1/10/00 Monday Evening         OEX   + 7.43
The market shot up right after 3:00 and then - - right back into today's trading range! Still not a hopping day for a Toad. See you in the morning.
Toad Update 1/10/00 #1 15:00 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Market appears to be stuck in a trading range. Thought we might get a breakout a couple of times today and it didn't happen.
Don't know if the 3:00 crowd will be active today. Just doesn't look like a hopping day for a small green Toad.

Toad Update 1/10/00 #1 12:30 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

How about that, I'll be able to access the internet from my Time magazine... Yep AOL and Time Warner merged - who is next?
We are still FLAT. The market went up on open and has been working it's way DOWN since the morning pop.   Indicators say it's going .... down?     With the exception of the 11:30 surge, the Tick has been below zero since 10:00.   Stay tuned...

1/7/00 Later Friday Evening
A Toadster just sent us another quote for today:
"I went home last night thinking today would be one of the worst down days we've had in years," said Timothy Heekin, director of equity trading at Thomas Weisel Partners in San Francisco, an outlook shared by many. "A lot of people got the fake out."
I guess we can forgive Mrs. Toad.   Mrs. Toad     A lot of us were faked out!
1/7/00 Friday Evening         OEX   + 20.85
The payroll report, our signals, our feelings and our wife said to watch out - the markets rise didn't make much sense to us, or to anyone else.
Jaguars       "Wages Grow, Interest Rate Fears Heighten"
        "The week really deifies categorization." and,
          "Don't hop now."
are some quotes from today that stick in our mind.

Let's have a weekend and figure out who is going to play the Jaguars NEXT weekend.   See you on Monday.
(To Mrs. Toad, the Jan 780 calls OEZAP hit a high of 16 3/4!)
Toad Update 1/7/00 #2 15:43 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones
This is Mrs Toad. Toad is making me type this. He wanted to hop into OEZAP at 9 3/4 back around 2:30 (EST) and I said I thought the market would soon sell off because it was Friday, close to 3:00, and there would be a lot of profit taking.
      I was WR. . . .,   I was WR. . . .,   I should have kept my thoughts to myself.
Have a great weekend,
Mrs. Toad

Toad Update 1/7/00 #1 12:04 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Just about lunch time around here and we are still FLAT.
We passed through the resistance at 768 and seem to have established short-term resistance around 772. We will keep an eye on the market while we eat lunch. Stay tuned...
1/7/00   9:30
The Payroll Report indicates that (are you ready for this?) the Federal Reserve MIGHT raise rates at its next meeting on Feb. 1-2. Surprise!
The bagels indicate that it's FRIDAY!     Stay tuned...
1/6/00 Thursday Evening         OEX   + 1.12
Well, tomorrow is Friday and time for the Payroll Report and BAGELS!   See you in the morning, you bring the bagels and I'll bring the coffee.
Toad Update 1/6/00 #3 14:38 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Looks like some STRONG resistance around 768, tried to break through twice today and can't do it. IF it does break through, we will probably get into a call... IF the signals say YES.
Toad Update 1/6/00 #2 13:53 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

This is a SCW (Shoulda Coulda Woulda) day so far. Thought the OEXAN's Jan 770 calls at 13 1/2 or the OEXAL's Jan 760 calls at 19 1/2 looked pretty good and then... yep our friend the TICK said NOPE!
Flat, frustrated, and foiled again... still watching.
Toad Update 1/6/00 #1 11:32 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Well, it's a good day to sit by the pond and watch the market. We have been following/tracking some puts and some calls and were hungry to hop into a call - then, the TICK started back down - so we are call-less. (Is that a word?)
We are FLAT & watching, stay tuned...
1/6/00   9:35
Here by the pond, watching. Stay tuned...
1/5/00 Wednesday Evening         OEX   + 2.51
Thought I'd mention that the Jan 760 puts OEZML that we didn't buy at $18 closed the day at $14 1/2.   Then the Jan 770 calls OEZAN that we didn't buy at $14 closed the day at $12 1/4.   Go figure...

Looks like a lot of traders are waiting for Friday's Employment Report to use to speculate on the February FED meeting...       hang on folks, we have a month of this...
Toad Update 1/5/00 #1 15:12 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Yes, I am responsible for turning the market around today. We were stopped out of some of our INTC today. As soon as we sold INTC, the market started back up - UNLIKE YESTERDAY when the market kept on going down...
The market doesn't ever do what you want it to do...
Look at the charts, I'll bet you can guess when we sold INTC - yep, about the time we were considering the Jan 760 puts at $18.   Still FLAT with this Year 2000 market.
1/5/00   9:40
Yep, we are here by the pond, watching. Stay tuned...
1/4/00 Tuesday Evening         OEX  - 29.78
Did you see what the Jan 790 puts OEZMR were going for today?     We sold them yesterday at $20 and they closed out at $34 1/4 today.... awwwwwwwwww.... (A reason to hold over? Mrs. Toad says NOPE!)     See you in the morning...
Toad Update 1/4/00 #2 16:04 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

The sound you hear is a TOAD screaming. I didn't hop, thought the market might make up some of the losses before the close today and it sure didn't.
We would see the signals back off, going toward neutral and then head down again, did that enough today to keep us on the bank of the pond.
Looks like we will have an interesting month.
Toad Update 1/4/00 #1 14:58 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

We missed the Jan 770 puts OEZMN at $16 right after 1:00 today, and we chased them a little, but were concerned we'd be getting in at the high of the day. Well, it looks like they hit 19 and we could have raised our entry some.
So, we are FLAT - ugh. Guess it's better to have chased and not hopped than to have hopped and lost... how profound.
Updated Toad Talk today and you can hear it on the site or at: ABS Live.

Toad Update 1/3/00 #3 15:12 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Take a look at a 10 minute or a 5 minute chart from today - it's been sideways since the 10:00 to 11:00 tanking.
Didn't feel comfortable enough to hop back into a put or a call since the sideways action started. Will we see a reaction after 3:00? Who knows...     We are FLAT.
Toad Update 1/3/00 #2 11:30 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

We just hopped out of the Jan 790 puts OEZMR at 20, we were holding out for 22, oops - so we changed it to 20 and we are FLAT TOADS!
Great start to the New Year!
Toad Update 1/3/00 #1 10:48 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

We just hopped into 10 contracts of the Jan 790 puts OEZMR at 16.

Well, we have low volume on the OEX options and it looks like a good time to call it a year. Market is open 1/2 day on Friday and I'd hate to get stuck in a position until next year!
So have some bagels on Friday and to you and yours from me and mine - HAPPY NEW YEAR!
12/30/99 9:45

I understand that the TICK was BROKEN today, I thought it needed recalibrated a couple of weeks ago!
      You don't think this is Y 2 Tick related do you??
            See you in the morning.

Not much going on today, probably shoulda listened to Mrs. Toad.     Y   A   W   N
Little Toad and family came home yesterday to spend some birthday time with Mrs. Toad, they will be here until New Years Day. Littlest Toad isn't able to work the computer yet... her dad has been showing her how, so probably next week.
What about taking off Thursday and Friday? If things keep up at this pace, we will probably take off. I'll let you know.

Happy Birthday Mrs. Toad! 12/28/99 Tuesday Evening         OEX   + 0.14
Updated late because we were not here tonight, we had a small birthday party for Mrs. Toad at a friends house.   With the lack of Toadsters attending, I guess y'all didn't get your invitations, maybe next year.
So we will see you here in the morning.
Toad Update 12/28/99 #2 14:37 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

I thought we were having a "breakout" when the OEX pushed through 797 around 14:06 - the TICK stayed negative, but it was moving up rapidly.   Then, well it was back down and I turned my internal "alarm" off...     Great fake...
Back to watching,   I received this web location from a Toadster on the left coast - just in case we missed California. Take a look at: Do you miss California?
Toad Update 12/28/99 #1 13:33 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

We are even on the AD numbers, the DOW is up 90 points and the OEX up just .50 with a negative TICK. Go figure. OEX not moving much and neither are the Options on the OEX.
Hard finding words to describe today - how's about strange?     Mrs. Toad says we are taking off on her birthday next year - good idea. Wait a minute, then she will want to go shopping - hmmmmm....
I'm here, eating lunch and watching...

Toad Update 12/27/99 #2 15:13 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

This market worked it's way DOWN till 1:00 and then worked it's way back UP until now. All while traveling in it's closely defined range. We were waiting for another DOWN leg around 2:00 and it never showed up - we stayed within the range. So we thought maybe a CALL today - nope.
So, it doesn't look like we should be hopping today - plus I have to go find another present for Mrs. Toad's birthday tomorrow.
That's it for today, see you in the morning.
Toad Update 12/27/99 #1 13:44 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Been rolling around in a trading range again today and the OEX, NASDAQ, and S&P 500 are all down - only the Dow is up. Hmmmm...
Considered the Jan 790 puts OEZMR earlier today - if they go back to 15 1/2, we may buy them - IF the signals stay negative.

Santa Claus Rally = The day before a holiday is usually a strong up day with light volume because many traders take off early.


Toad Update 12/23/99 #1 14:52 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Ho Ho Ribbitt Guess that was the Santa Claus Rally. This morning the market shot up to OEX 792 before 10:00 and then it's been in a trading range between 792 and 795.
During the same trading range, the Jan 790 calls OEZAR have ranged between 21 and 21 1/2, the Jan 795 calls OEZAS between 17 and 18 and the Jan 800 calls OEXAT between 14 1/2 and 15 1/2.
So, not a lot of opportunity for us to get some more Christmas green today - UNLESS we woulda hopped in yesterday and ... er, never mind - someone was looking at PUTS yesterday!
Good trading & have a great holiday!

Ho Ho Ho RibbittWe were looking at the ZAN to ZAP's today (770 to 780 calls) - they hopped up after the announcement and then just didn't move that much more. Wasn't happy with the signals, so we stayed out and are FLAT toads. Only two more trading days this week and Thursday might be questionable.

See you in the morning.

Toad Update 12/21/99 #2 15:18 Email, Yahoo, Pagers & Cell Phones

Well, well, well... IF we woulda hopped into the calls we were considering, we would be in at the HIGH of the day. Market went up on the announcement and then went FLAT - most signals are now neutral and so are we...
geez...

I blush to admit that we looked at the ever popular Dec 760 puts today - the good news is our signals kept us from hopping in at $7 - those puppies are now running 4 1/4 X 4 3/8.   Still FLAT and we will let you know when we hop.
We updated Toad Talk© last night - you can listen at our site or at ABS live.

Look at the charts - a little strange today. It was a good day for us to volunteer. See you in the morning.

Not a trading kind of a day with no clear direction and a lot of false starts.   Guess that's it for today.     See you by the pond in the morning.

Looks like a mixed market today and the decliners are leading advancers 4 to 3. Still sitting by the pond, watching, stay tuned...
