From my watchlist last night:
GVBP – I called it right … it went up, but more than I anticipated or could handle.
ZOOM – This was a nice short on red right out of the gate today. I was busy with other stocks at the open so I missed it.
SCII – weird merger news, sketchy and up way big in four days, from .04 to .37. Short on green/red, higher risk.
DIET – 140% price spike in three days on news of a $600,000 PIPE? Short on green/red.
GETG – recycled pump & dumper, up 126% in one day, but still very low priced. Short on green/red, higher risk.
FNET – Preston nailed this shorting as it faded off of highs today. Still up 96% on the day on no news. Short aggressively on green/red.
Disclosure: No positions. I have a disclosure policy.

BNX – long on break of .35 might be interesting. A little cheap for me.
CLFD is another one that is up on no news that I can see, though the downside is not as much. It has a choppy chart as well but looks like it will settle back down where it came from.
LXRX looks good but it had some news that I don’t think was that great. It doesn’t have a ton of downside either.
DIET looks good.
All of these stocks are listed on the NASDAQ so Ameritrade might have shares available. You can’t short OTC stocks with them.
Is it possible with IB or TOS to reserve shares without setting a price? I don’t always know where I want to enter the trade, but know that I would like to have the shares available to short during the day…thanks!!
IB does not allow reserving shares. With TOS tell the TOS person you are chatting with to make a notation in your account. Or–and this is easier–just set a short order way above the market price after getting a borrow on a hard-to-borrow stock.
Good luck trading you guys – I just got out of surgery (and out of day trades) so I won’t be trading for a few days.
cwn, I don’t know what’s worse, surgery…. or being out of day trades. 🙂
I hope you get well soon.
Thanks for helping me get a handle on that…much appreciated!
Heh, I got my deviate septum fixed (have never been able to breathe out of one side of my nose) which gives me a few days off from work to watch and see how things play out.
By deviate, I mean deviated. Yay pain killers lol.
CVM has some news this morning, could be a pre-market leader.
LXRX getting ready to red on the day.
ATCO, no news but it has resistance in the 2.80 area, could run much higher before falling.
Covered LXRX for a +275.00 gain. 1000 shares in @ 2.63 out @ 2.36.
Great job! When did you short? I only ask cause there was a 10/60 SMA cross just before 2.63, didn’t know if you followed that or if its just a coincidence.
I shorted yesterday after close, 2 orders again, 1 for 200 shares and 1 for 800 shares.
I wasn’t using that SMA, barely know what that is.
Just going off of the fading price action, and trying to save a day trade, worked out this time.
Michael won’t be happy though because I held overnight, but I did have a trade to dump if I had to.
KERX, might be a good one to hold again, will see what happens at the EOD.
Hope you are feeling better.

This is my trades, the one for KERX has been canceled, I was seeing if they had shares to short so I put in a order way above the bid price.
One missing from here is OPXA, -150 for the day. I won’t go into detail on that one.
