The only stock that really interests me for tomorrow: EMGE, which was a big mover again today. I doubt there will ever be shares of it to short.

  1. There really is nothing that looks interesting for tomorrow, I’m sure that will change in the morning. At least I hope it does.

    1. Maybe there’s other interesting stocks, but I’m not seeing them. Maybe there will be some nice ones that show up on the pre-market scan tomorrow.

  2. It had a good move but the volume is still low making it harder to play. I don’t know if Ameritrade has shares to borrow, I might check tomorrow.

  3. BPFH failed to break through some key resistance and has had a down day making it look attractive to short.

    YRCW looks the same but it has some support at the 4.00 area making the downside not that great.

  4. Git yer ass outta bed Reaper!

  5. Did you get any shares to short? I managed to get some at speedtrader at 3.10… Riding the downhill rollarcoaster 🙂

    Sogotrade dosen’t have EMGE because they don’t list pink stocks. It comes up as nothing if you type in their ticker

    I really like that reserve option on thinkorswim though.

  6. Michael, you can laugh at that email now, I let a 300.00 gain turn into a 300.00 unrealized loss on LUNA by not taking profits. I’m still holding but only out of stupidity now, piss poor trading on my part. I let my ego get the best of me again, I’ve got to get better at that soon or it’s going to cost me a lot.
    Let the ass chewing commence. 🙂

    John, Ameritrade had them through their ToS but you cannot short OTC stocks there.

    1. Considering I completely fucked up the EMGE trade, losing $1400 total shorting it on the day it dropped 43% from its highs, I don’t think I’m in any position to chew you out.

  7. that idea of shorting and going long simultaneously in different accounts when there are shares to short and then ditching the long when the pattern finally sets up sounds interesting.

    Aside from slippage on the entries Reaper, anything I am missing? That would protect you on a forced buy-in as well…

  8. Sounds like a good strategy to me. I could’ve used it today on LUNA, it would have worked nicely when it broke the HOD and I could have added to my short as well, which I didn’t do.
