There are no big gaps to fill. And it's bumping against the breakout price of $2. This is a very dangerous stock to short at this point. I don't understand the fixation with some of the posters wanting to short this thing. It's like they are taking it personally. #1 mistake in trading is getting emotional about a position.
Although I am neither short nor long currenly, (Wag long) I think you make an excellent point never get emotional on a stock and if you have reaped profits have the trailing stops in place. On the other hand, based upon cash flow, logic and current state of affairs within the industry, this stock cannot sustain its climb up Wag will have it for lunch as each month passes.
Hmmm, looking at charts, don't really see any "spikes" up or down. Well except from the one around mid, 3rd week of December, where it went from like $1.05 or so to around $1.43ish before pulling back to close the year at what, wait let me check....$1.36. Since then, the drops have been smaller, the ups have been better.
Seems the last three months have gradually grown from hills, to almost mountain ranges. I like the charts from the past 2 years. I think we break $2.00, could hit $2.00 - $2.05 before earnings release. Economy sucks, but figure before earnings release, $1.80 the lowest it should go. Take your $1.90 short profits and cut your losses on the $1.76 short.
Then maybe take a butterfly position, "just in case" you are wrong about RAD's fate. Might save ya some pennies.
If I was you, I would look at shorting MIMV or BCCI
