[10:53] {Threei}  [PLD] ProLogis To divest China operations and 20% interest in Japan Property Funds to GIC Real Estate for $1.3B
[10:53] {Threei}  - The net proceeds will be used to reduce debt.
[10:53] {Threei}  - Company expects to record a modest net loss on the transaction of approximately 4% to 6%of the book value of the assets sold.
[10:53] {Threei}  - Co' development pipeline as of September 30, 2008 will be reduced by $1.0B, including $255M in costs to complete development of the assets owned directly and within Prologis'' development joint ventures in China.
[10:53] {Threei}  - The company expects to close the transaction in January 2009
[10:54] {Threei}  - CEO: In one substantial step, this transaction helps ProLogis de-lever its balance sheet, relieve near-term re-financing pressure and enhance liquidity
[10:54] {Threei}  - Selling our China operations and our investment in the Japan funds was not an easy decision; however, this represents a major milestone in the implementation of the plan we outlined last month to strengthen the company''s balance sheet in order to meet the challenges of the current environment.
[10:54] {Threei}  to me, it reads as "dump the future prospects in order to survive today"

[12:47] {Larisa1} bet he is checking his junk e-mail
[12:48] {Threei}  yup/// Michelee says you are
[12:48] {Larisa1} oh :)
[12:48] {Larisa1} ty
[12:49] {ese} long KHD .38 1/2
[12:55] {lisa_jay} nice KHD 
[12:57] {ese} not holding my breath today...this will only mitigate my -.32 in PLD earlier if it works
[12:58] {lisa_jay} Vad, Amzn - would this be a double bottom...for educational reasons only.  Thanks.
[12:58] {ese} out  KHD .68 +.30
[12:58] {lisa_jay} nice
[12:58] {Onix} gj
[12:58] {ese} tks
[12:59] {Threei}  what do tou see as bottoms?
[12:59] {Threei}  you
[12:59] {ese} how bout that....Vads strategy works....keep plugging away and limit losses
[12:59] {Threei}  it does
[13:00] {lisa_jay} From 12 - 12.20 and 12.35 - 12.45
[13:00] {Threei}  take valid setups and play them by the book... the rest will take care of itself
[13:00] {dino} gj es
[13:00] {Threei}  not very pronounced formation lisa
[13:01] {ese} yes......although sometimes I get too aggressive and should be waiting for the setup to appear
[13:01] {lisa_jay} Ok, thanks Vad.
[13:01] {Geo} someone comitted suicide?
[13:02] {Geo} CNBC
[13:02] {ese} huh?

[13:03] {ese} ahhhh....
[13:04] {Threei}  now... Ponzi scheme is criminal, no?
[13:04] {ese} not crammer then.....
[13:04] {Threei}  what do you call the very idea of practically all social programs, benefits and pensions then?
[13:05] {wishbone} like income trusts in canada
[13:05] {Threei}  they all are based on payment to early "investors" from what today's ones bring,
[13:05] {Threei}  they all rely on eternal increase in numbers
[13:06] {ese} don't think thats quite true....
[13:06] {Threei}  and they all collapse if demographics (attraction of new "investors") cotract
[13:06] {ese} money is suppose to be invested properly
[13:07] {dino} es, you forget that politics gets involved
[13:07] {dino} give them more to get elected, messes up whole system
[13:07] {ese} to some extent they require new investors.....but not to just keep the trust going,,...legit ones anyway
[13:07] {ese} although those trust can certainly be mismanaged
[13:11] {magoo} vad..i am eating bacon..and i know u care

[13:35] {Geo} nah
[13:35] {Geo} all in my mind
[13:35] {Geo} just thinking of all the stuff i bough when i was visiting

[13:35] {lisa_jay} I am working through that Ese...will conqor it eventually with Vad's help.
[13:36] {magoo} i told him to hook u up...not one slap
[13:36] {ese} that emotion can kill your account......specifically the next time when you have a bad trade and you decide to stay in..
[13:36] {ese} when you should get out
[13:36] {lisa_jay} Ese, when do yo move stop to brekeven to wait out for 1:2
[13:37] {lisa_jay} You don't partial out right?
[13:37] {dino} out gg .30, +.40 all day
[13:37] {ese} hmmmmmmm......i don't really partial but i probably should.....
[13:37] {lisa_jay} nice Dino.
[13:38] {Onix} gj
[13:38] {dino} ty lj
[13:38] {ese} usually i don't want to loose anymore then 150 to 200 on any particular trade.....but i'll get out sooner or move the stop up quick if I think the trade ir really risky
[13:38] {dino} and onix
[13:39] {lisa_jay} ok, thanks Ese.
[13:40] {ese} i've tried to learn from vad about position size....in terms of goin 1/2 or full lots.......it's half usually for me if volume is under 2 mill
[13:41] {ese} i've gotten used to seeing what vad sees....I think.....when he's looking for steady prints.
[13:41] {dino} uso wants green imo
[13:41] {ese} that reduces risk for me anyway
[13:42] {ese} if prints are not steady one way or the other i'm usually 1/2 lot or less
[13:44] {lisa_jay} Thanks Ese, learning something everyday.
[13:47] {ese} also trying to learn how dino has mastered short cover rallys.....borders on the existential 
[13:48] {dino} lol
[13:48] {dino} out oxy .90, +.40
[13:48] {lisa_jay} Nice 
[13:48] {dino} ty
[13:49] {dino} es, sm size allows for entry errors
[13:49] {ese} have practised traded a few but have not got them to work for me
[13:49] {ese} for your short cover rallys?
[13:49] {dino} y
[13:49] {ese} tks
[13:50] {dino} also, look at support levels from days/weeks past
[13:50] {dino} we know yesterdays, 8372 dji; 1169 ndx; 871 s&p
[13:51] {dino} and dec. 8,118, 1096, 818
[13:51] {ese} yes....and do you wait for those levels in particular to trade off of
[13:52] {dino} i use prior day, then weekly, then monthly(which hasn't come too close yet)
[13:52] {dino} overall, we are in a big range sell dji over 8800, buy around 8300
[13:53] {ese} have been kind of aware of that......need to pay more attention to it though
[13:54] {dino} 500 pts right, and typically we range 300 pts/day, so....extrapolate
[13:54] {ese} (: 
[13:55] {dino} ok, do we drop hard again at 2?
[13:55] {dino} and bounce big around 3:35-40
[13:56] {patience} i scalp goldcorp frequently...30 minute daily charts for the past 10 days...very similar pattern
[13:56] {dino} gg
[13:56] {patience} i just keep scalping whomever set up the buy/sell program
[13:57] {patience} although volume has lightened up
[13:57] {dino} gj, nice 5 days pattern too29=-27.50ish
[13:57] {patience} i'm trading on the canadian side but american must be similar
[13:58] {patience} i'll sell my goldcorp stock this week because COTS reports say gold is down next week probably

[14:02] {patience} thanks geo
[14:02] {Geo} they do well I dont use it though
[14:02] {patience} ese, i use the 30 or 60 to look for larger patterns
[14:03] {Geo} dont trade commodities much
[14:03] {patience} i use shorter timeframes for scalping
[14:03] {patience} 5 or 10 minutes
[14:03] {patience} then go by rsi and macd
[14:03] {Threei}  RIMM
[14:03] {Threei}  long .96 if takes that offer by UBSS at .95

[14:05] {patience} depends on your risk profile
[14:05] {magoo} go ahead and say it vad
[14:05] {patience} i like goldcorp for scalping, barrick can act weird around options expiry
[14:05] {Geo} medium lol
[14:05] {patience} used to scalp kinross alot, but they own russian gold mine....so no more
[14:06] {Geo} you dont do just plain gold?
