    Just so there is no "confusion", I was not frustrated or "shaken-out". My remaining position was very small (250K shares), as I hedged out a majority in July of 2012 and posted when I did so. I added again (750K) at $3.65 - $3.70 in April of 2013 and then used an option strategy to sell all of the shares above $4.50 in December.

    I still like the story here and the company, and as previously posted, the stock broke down technically when it failed to breach the $5.00 mark on a third attempt on heavy volume, and the short position doubled in a very very very small period of time. It was time to take a break from this one.

    AIS is back on the intra-day regSHO list so my interest is growing........

    HERO Technicals - Shorts are Cornered

    Besides, the short is busted on HERO, "they" just haven't figured it out on the margin desks yet. Yesterday's trading speaks volumes! 1.2M shorted on volume of 1.8M with 3.2M in manipulative flash trades to walk it back down. Improving fundamentals and technical indicators. The big problem for the shorts is they are the same shorts on DO with no where near the trading volume to cover 19M short shares. "They" are getting it on both sides.

    And as of May 6th the Keystone Pipeline is now in jeopardy: "The State Department recently delayed a decision on Keystone, likely until after the November congressional elections.

    As of mid-day Tuesday lawmakers had not yet found common ground, and it was unclear if they would. The stalemate could end up killing the energy bill and preventing a vote on Keystone as well.

    A Senate Republican aide said it was increasingly looking as if talks to get a vote on Keystone had stalled. "

    Very good post and spot on understanding of how the manipulation with Phantom Shares, and regSHO works.

    Don't be a casualty of my war. If you need to short, sell, buy or hedge; do what you gotta do. The swings are getting wilder because shares are drying up. Still plenty of shares available for hypothecation but the options breaks now at .50 cent intervals are telling the real story. The challenge for me is the flash and HFT traders at the moment.... It's a pain in the a#$%$ when they flash trade phantom shares away from the market and print the tape and then drop the equity a nickle on 500 shares.......
