Not only is old spice wrong, but he smells bad, he insults everyone, and he honestly thinks being a burro online might depress the stock price. I am someone that is becoming sick of the absurd.
My understanding, strictly clinician, is that there has to be something significant in an ongoing study to warrant the request, often something that might alter the current scope of treatment, significantly. For example...remission when none was expected...quality of life change...
brokerages have different rules, some are 50% above, it is bs. Fidelity may loan many of those shares out. They realize that in real squeeze, ( the opposite of what happened to Lehman) can happen and the imbalances in orders gets so severe that wild price swings occur. They are forcing you to sell in a range that would give some time to allow the market to adjust.
Rookie? This IDIOT...trades without stops, brags about it, shorts at 2.60 (open the floodgates what chart are you looking at). Thinks Bollingers are worth more than 2 cents...but...better yet knows nothing about medicine,biochemistry or genetics, yet calls it "voodoo science". What short term trader doesn't use stops? Maybe ...Jesse Livermore...see what happened to him, I live a block from his old pad. And...worst of all uses disparaging language to purport his ideas...and attack others... a disgusting excuse for a man.
Of course if illegal naked shorting(no borrowed stock) is being done by a big hedge fund, then...things get more interesting..
Especially if the company (EXEL) delivers...then a short squeeze will have an almost log type progression buying and it will be ugly as/if the fund tries to short more when buyers flood the gate...the math behind it is awesome. This may be a ride for the NY Times to write up....60 million...wow...we may be meeting in Disneyland.
IF 1-2% of current available (borrowed) shares was made unavailable...just imagine...think it is time to play ACDC/thunderstruck
So these guys may make a final push, how you make it harder is you call your broker (computer) and place a sell order GTC double the days price, (all or none). You can adjust it going forward (higher price), going backwards they do not cancel it on you. It makes it so a brokerage can not allow someone to borrow shares(shares for sale can't be shorted). It makes it harder to borrow the shares you own so some seman cant sell something he doesn't own, and profit on your loss. EVERY LONG SHOULD DO THIS, it is how you combat shorts.
Give me a break, your short down 4k on a 13k margin bet (10,firstname.lastname@example.org)...your so full of it...either you don't have stops, or your really stupid....last option: both. The stock traded as high as 3.24 and your saying you took a 50% loss and sat on it, you are a moron and a liar.
