Whether or not I am a cockroach, I only know one sure thing:
the rare earths are priced by the market as being effectively worthless hype today so don't blame me for that piece of reality, blame the market.
I am merely the messenger of Truth, not some ridiculous pumper scamming amateur idiots into buying dying stock positions and worthless call options.
There are compelling reasons why most shorts today are happy to short on a naked basis, without one speck of fear that they will have to deliver stock. In a bear, all apparent bullish activity is always erased almost immediately, there are no sustainable gains of any kind.
