This wants to get up and go, but somebody ill-advisedly shorted it down each of the last 5 days. I smell bacon. Hot crispy shorty!
Your are really stupid knowingb that LP can by from company and sell into market to fund operations. There is no shorting allowed as it's the company itself funding operations.
My broker says I can short as long as I have the money in a margin account. Probably depends upon your broker. Maybe your discount broker won't let you so you don't hurt yourself? Does he babysit you as well?
