Do you think shorts do what you do? Commit to a block of shares for weeks and months IR even years, to see what happens?
A someone who has been short on BP, I can tell you I made more money in the last three weeks than I have made the entire year on all the stocks I have been trading.
Take yesterday for instance. I was in and out short-cover-short-cover no less than 12 times.At close of the day, uncertain what news I may wake up to I covered ( at a loss) and got out. As short as I was for three weeks I went to bed with NO POSITION on BP last night. Helps sleep better that way.
Today depending on the same news we all watch, I will do more of same. As you mock the shorts and their ill fated demise, it would help you to know a little more about shorting and not concern yourself too much with what is none of your business.
What should be important to you is, how are YOU doing if you have been in this stock for the same three weeks. You can't trade in and out because you took a 30 percent haircut. Market cap is down by $50 BILLION. All you can do is sit quietly in the corner and wait for things to get better for BP so you can break even. Which by the way not gonna happen.
Boy, you know a lot about shorting for someone that didn't even know last week that you had to pay the dividend if you're short when it comes due.....FRAUD....Anyway, all your profits are going away in the pre-market today, btu I'm sure you got out completely yesterday "just in time" or that you're covering in AH's trading, because you're an expert and all...LMAO.
