Entry comments: Shorted this pump on its possible first down day, big morning spike and panic, usually the beginning of the end, keep position small due to low volume and its trickery in the past, goal is to make 50-75 cents/share on a short later today or tomorrow

Exit comments: NICE and CLASSIC http://tim.ly/sykestrades pattern at work, might crack more but this stock has taught me in the past to cover into panic and not wait around since its so tricky and illiquid, seems to be using yesterday's low of 5.50ish as a base so possible double bottom, nice gain here

  • Oct 21, 15 3:31 PM: Added 1514 at 6.31 - Added to my short since it faded nicely to the 5.80s before 1 guy (likely the promoter) propped this carcass up with a 6k bid, which just got eaten away, resistance at 6.50 protects me, but I think I can profit 50-75 cents/share, maybe even more on the inevitable collapse of this pump likely tomorrow or Friday
