You had best be comfortable selling at $2.50, if you're putting a sell order in. Otherwise, you're in danger of being considered to be "manipulating" the stock. Read the SEC regs on it. Intending to "induce" another market player to take a specific action, based upon an impression created, with your primary purpose being to actually take the "other side" of the market, is not a line you want to cross.
On the other hand, it is perfectly fine to play market maker, which is what I've been doing the last few weeks...selling LEE at $2.48-2.49, and buying it at $2.41-2.42, for a razor thin "scalp" profit, that annualizes out very nicely.
