    Forced Buy In

    Probably see this play out over the next few days due to the massive volume and people taking new positions today: At some point a lender may pull back the shares that the broker is borrowing on your behalf, which makes the shares unavailable. While your broker may be able to obtain additional shares on your behalf, in some cases no shares may be available. This is known as a buy in. Should this occur you may have to cover your short by purchasing shares in the open market. If the stock has risen in value since you originally shorted it, you will realize a loss on the trade.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
