Shorts should remember one thing. One wrong guess can ruin your whole year. Once deal is announced the bounce will send you into a deep depression. All that work for those petty gains gone in a flash.
Your concern is touching, but I'm an investor, not a gambler, which means I haven't bet my last dollar one way or the other. I can afford to be wrong on this without ruining my year. How many here can say the same?
Of course I still think I'm right, especially since I'm in the green.
It is like for shortie getting used to three sleepless nights, then suddenly will hear Monday morning the deal is done, kaboom..., and start scrambling COVERING YOUR SHORTS POSITION. So you are used to it now!!
