    mlstute, help on shorting otiv.

    Can you elaborate at all on your short selling of OTIV?

    I have shorted only a few equities in my time. And not for very long.

    Not familiar with shorting microcaps with small pps.

    Can't hedge the short with an option, so only thing you can really do is set a stop.

    And again, not familiar with the margin maintenance for such a small equity. If I short 5,000 @1.00 , how much margin do I need to maintain that position? In the example with OTIV, the price is $1.50. So the value to buy back is $7500 for same 1k shares.

    Thanks mls. Since you are confidently shorting this thing, you won't mind giving us a few tips.
