    • I think shorting is a thing of the past. If they are shorting then they are behind the times. Most people who will take a bearish position do so through option trading. That way they can control their losses. Their only exposure/risk is a couple of hundred dollars or even less. I currently own 4400 shares of THLD. I have 10 contracts (1000 shares) at a strike of 7.50 that expires on 4/21/12. My risk is $220 w/commissions so anything over 7.72 and I am in the green. Yesterday actually today options expire. I think thats why we saw so much selling. Someone big was protecting their puts. Over 500,000 shares traded at 6.95 and 6.96.

      • Agree with you Capt.

        I watched trading the last thirty minutes. L2 consistently showed small sell volume at levels up to $7.74. I mean 200-4000 shares. Mostly 200-300 shares per penny increase. Every time a price would be hit another couple of hundred shares took its place.

        Someone wanted to keep the price under 7.

        Stay Long and Prosper
