Arriving last Wednesday in Bordeaux city at the Best Western Gare St. Jean (with free Wi-Fi!) I checked my email and the stock market before I was to head out to dinner at one of the more overrated restaurants my wife and I visited on our two week European vacation (La Tupina). I noticed SSOL was around 9 cents and was on the fourth day of the pump. Furthermore, IB had shares to short. So I took a 60k short position and headed off to dinner. I held the position all throughout the next day (the first true red day). Then before leaving on the TGV Friday I put in two 30k orders to cover my position: .511 and .456. My second order filled completely at the low of the day while we traveled. Not bad for a random vacation trade. Thank you TitanStocks!
Profit during vacation: $2,503.26 (46% profit margin on that trade!)
