You could have shorted basically ANY other stock the last two days and made good money. For some reason you picked this one and lost. I'm shorting several stocks as well as the Nasdaq for the past week and I've done quite well. Perhaps you need to revisit the way you decide your short candidates. ECYT will make you very poor if you do not cover your short soon. Better yet, you could more than make up for your losses by going long and just waiting a year or two.
