the specialist in SLB...

  1. I would like to shake the hand of the man that controls SLB. He is very good at what he does. I was shorting all afternoon as oil was selling off to new lows, he collapsed the bid, I was in the money pretty nicely, only to watch him bring it up right til the close. who would have though that slb would have finished positive on a day that oil makes its 5 month low. ugh...
  2. It's all about the options!
  3. I trade slob a few years ago. the guy was good. the other osx stocks were more fun.
  4. SLB is a child's play compared to RIG or SII. Next time you should try those:)
    Also COF, GS and LEH specialists are lots of fun too:))
  5. SLB specialist got me good yesterday. I heard PD specialist is a genius.
  6. Smith was one of my bread and butter stocks for a long time. BJS was a winner, too. But I do remember one day the SII guy faded his bid a dollar when I had just gotten long, and I doubled up and kicked his lilly white. Normally I would have bailed but there was something about the way he did it that made it look like a bluff.

    I also remember that for about two weeks, SII was alot easier than usual; I concluded that the regular market maker was on vacation or something.

    Rarely made money daytrading RIG.

    I do recall that COF used to be a real wild stock.

    Hell, you want pain try PXP or XTO
  8. Try AH or CAE.
    Those specialists are MAGICIANS!!!

  9. GS. That guy kills me everytime I make a trade. I stay away from that stock purposely when it shows up on my screens...
  10. I don't find GS particular hard to trade. You can always get out without taking a big rip.
