    Volatility - lessons to be learned from AMNR, RMBS, others...

    I was in AMRN for the original run, and even further back when one of the first IP trolls RMBS made their run from 10 - 50 in a year. We can expect to see flash drops / rises of a dollar or more in a matter of seconds. They will punish longs and shorts alike in the coming weeks. Those who use stops will lose their shares before the news ever comes out. Think right now a $4.60 stop is safe? No, it is not, not with a stock like this. we could easily test that and bounce back above $5 on a bear raid. Volume dries up and somebody drops 250K shares on it to drop it 50-70 cents, picks off all the stops. Beta on this per yahoo is 3.46. Just about anything can happen in the coming weeks before news truly hits. If you are going to ride this out, do not use stops, do not sell based upon trading, simply wait for the news. Everything that happens outside of the actual news is simply noise designed to move you to action. As Mark from LA so eloquently put it, there are no coincidences in the markets. Flash drops are not an accidnet, that is for sure. If you lose your shares before the news, at least you were warned. GLTL's
