Thats all the more reason to put a sell order in with a very high ask price. This has to be done on a daily basis to work effectively. Make sure you keep an eye on the price if you dont want to sell your shares. Or use your target price.
Sounds very logical, except logic is no longer a virtue on Wall Street. Otherwise, why would short selling become so prevalent that people would short first and ask questions later. In the olden days, you wouldn't short a stock like FRAN that has consistently meet or outperform analysts expectations since IPO. But the fact that rules guiding short selling have become so relaxed or non-existent accounts for the reckless attitude towards shorting.
Why would you put a sell order in when you are below the strike price such that you would have to watch it so as not to be executed. Are you confusing this with a stop loss order to protect or limit downside risk A sell order loss or limit has to be entered when the price of the stock is above not below your ask price?
