Spindopey, it'll be a red letter date in history if you ever get anything right. I didn't double down on my position, I shorted 2500 more shares, not 5K. In MY reality, I'm waiting to cover at 8.50 as I have said before, but certainly if things change I'll cover before that. You might think ex-div is the cataclysm event for this doggy as far as a short is concerned, but it ain't. When you grow up and become a real investor, maybe you'll understand these things.
