Shelly needs an explanation, because even though he pretends to have this special knowledge about the way the market will react, he readily admits that Star had this pegged and he has no explanation other than to say that Star knew something that he didn't.
Instead of a conspiracy theory, I'd just like to speculate that Star is a lot closer to this chart than most of us, and you probably take a certain number of good risks with your positions, and benefit from being right more than 1/2 to 3/4 of the time. At the same time, you have to hedge risk and take a few safe positions, including selling some gains and locking in profits. Had the chart gone in the other direction, to 6, and you had sold, you'd still be in good money right now, but because it went to 4.80s, you were able to augment your position, and buy back your 1,000 shares at a discount. 1,000 shares and a .40 swing makes you $400. It is not all that awe inspiring to most experienced traders to have a $400 day once in awhile. Star, you have great exact timing and I commend you for playing the market right, but I think Shelly needs to understand that not every move you make demands to be heavily scrutinized. Whatever signal you found to sell at 5.25, is your prerogative and I don't think we need to know your secret formula, depsite our curiosity about it.
I see you're checkin your posts for spellin errors now. Maybe this means you really care about bein perceived intelliently. I worry about what kind of trouble you could cause if people took you seriously instead of puttin you on.
Correcting your spelling is not my obsession it is only a part time job and I have enough on my hands with............................................................................................................... getaguide.
you say you've never seen it before, but for a husband and wife to have separate bathrooms is en vogue in some areas. Not something you typically see in NY though where space is at a premium. To say it has no resale value is bogus, because the rich ladies will enjoy having their make-up and all spread out while the men will enjoy their BO smells. Now can you show us a link to this?
If Xin is thinking majority of sales will be to very wealthy Chinese nationals, they will tailor the plan to that crowd. Doesn't sound like an extreme deviation to me. Might even be a big plus, if Xin is correct about their main prospects preferences. Thanks for your post. Interesting comment.
Well that's an interesting point. Chinese may like different floor plans, but it seems like they are investing for value, and they want to buy something that will have and hold value in the market it is in. They would want re-sale value to be solid. That would be a concern if it's clear no American wants to live there. New York property is hot though, and this isn't a concern for me.. I don't think the building will sit empty, but it's interesting to think about.
so will Xin unless they announce some Pre-Sales. At least that way it'll keep the grape pickers and spell checkers from jumping off a bride. Although I've been trying to get the checker to do it for humanities sake.
'The Chinese like different floor plans than Americans.'
I'm LMAO at that one. Yes indeed Americans like a floorplan that includes a toilet, soap and towels.
A novelty for the Chinese who still have squatty potties, or trough's or no bathroom or toilet paper or
soap. It's like a new toy.........may I have three bathrooms off the master.......just in case.
I am amused by XIN floor plan for its NYC project. The master bedroom has two private full bathrooms. Never see this kind of apartment design before. I doubt anyone will buy in such a design. Thoughts?
I have no XIN positions of any kind. Visit this board occasionally to meet some old friends. Good luck to all.
Ah shucks look at that 'silly' comes back into your vocabulary
because you bought more today. Let's play remember when

when addressing Silly_Star_hominid's post that my idea of JAG's selling was 'ludicrous'
I warned you months before the event didn't I Stinky? How did it play out genius? Of course no one should believe me I was
just silly, and JAG bailed just like I warned. They must have been Silly too.
The fact that you admit it, gives me hope that you are oblivious and not consciously obtuse. You got any of that 6 pack left or even if you've broken 6 since then, I think I need a drink :) As far as you selling Xin on a regular basis, I I knew that already but........you have, according to you a sh*itload of shares. Take
it from (what is it now?) a person with an iq of 60? Bail, baby bail
I guess I don't read everything. What did I miss? What did star post that was so bad? I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary?
