The upside on a short at this point is extremely low....even the biggest of bears see only a 30 point additional drop or so. But, if Tuesday brings any smidgen of decent news or outlook, you will get burnt quickly. My take is that the big boys have gotten all they can from their shorts from high 600's and now they're going to let it go. And it will be as ugly on the way up for the shorts as it has been on the way down.....ok, maybe not quite that ugly, but you get the point. HUGE company here folks, don't forget that.
