I don't know about you, but I buy on margin below 5 all the time. A lot of this stuff has been thrown out the window as the smaller players have been shaken out by the dot bomb thing. So brokerages want your business and they bend the rules a lot.
I think a close above 200 dma would be the best thing for us. A big contract wouldn't hurt either!
(Once we get over 5ish, the stock can be shorted as well, if I'm not mistaken, and whether you like it or not, short sellers can help propel stocks higher...especially morons who short stocks in the low single digits).
