    Should be illegal to be long

    I am a teacher who works teaching people how to trade in the market and make a living at it. The only people who are long in this thing are morally bankrupt, vindictive people. For example, if you are mad at your husband and want to bankrupt him, then you advise him to invest in here long. Other than the criminal-like element of getting back at people, the only only other reason to be long here is because you are mentally challenged.

    This is the position that I use to teach my students how to do short trades. This is the only sure thing in the whole stock market. You just know every morning as you get up that you can short this position and be assured of making a great deal of money. This is an easy play for my beginning students who are timid and nervous about shorting for the first time. We teach them that this is the only stock in the world where there is all but a written, 100% guarantee to make money. When students advance a little bit we lead them to riskier investments. But for beginner, elementary type students, this is almost too easy to teach them how to trade short. The only regrets I've had is that some students get fooled into thinking the market is easy to play. Yes, this is an easy play and you know it will go down in value 5-6% or more every day, but the whole market is not that way. Usually trading involves risk, but not this play. This will be a penny stock (technically any stocks under $5) within just a few days, perhaps in a week or less. By the end of February this thing may even literally be a penny stock and not even worth a dollar.
