HotOTC (as well as many other pumpers) gapped and crapped MRGP today. I would have shorted this starting in the pre-market if I could have found shares. The key was that there was an aggressive seller in the premarket (whomever paid for the pump) keeping it from gapping. This would of course have been an aggressive entry. Averaging into a short is fine, but the risk on a HotOTC pump is that it will tank before a full position is reached.
Here are the pumpers:
