@kroyrunner Hi Tim! Just a quick question! TDAmeritrade does not short OTC tickers. Do you have any recommendations for what brokerage that does that? Without any huge huge commition or trading fees? I have used Suretrader but they are really expensive and have bad costumer support.

Unfortunately Suretrader or Centerpoint are probably your best options, and they are both expensive

TDAmeritrade its bad enough that you never have stocks to short but dam you cost like a $170 on an order that i cancelled and some how I was still in the trade. I think its fair for me not to post this trade being that I had no knowledge that I was even in.

@Choc7up Yes sir, I go into the stock summary on my TDAmeritrade research section and it shows a summary for each ticker you input, in this case it is 102.0k. The "news was on a patent awarded" however, in hindsight, it appears the news was released earlier prior to the public receiving it this morning. Check the A/H spike yesterday. So now, I've turned a quick popper into a swing trade. Best Wishes and I hope this helps.

Out $VSR for small loss. My thinking was right on, as this thing hit $7.66 premarket, but fucking ThinkOrSwim would not execute my orders. This is not the first time I've been screwed by not allowing premarket trades. (IB did it to me on my $CAMT loss.) I sold right at the open though, relieved that it didn't tank more. Could have been more patient and waited for the first candle and eaked out a profit, but when it started panicking in the last 3 minutes premarket, I wasn't going to mess around. I'll be transferring out my remaining funds from TDAmeritrade and moving it into IB to focus 100% on short selling.

Man, bounced off of 6.50 support and had a quick spike up to 7.50. There was profit potential there, but this stock is way too choppy and scary. And now looking at it, my order got executed right at 6.84, so I'm out flat minus commission (which is way too high at TD).
