$1,272 profit VEND Short Stock

Entry comments: Shorting the mid-day bounce on this pump cracking, goal is to cover int he mid to low 2s later today or tomorrow

Exit comments: NAILED the mid-day top when it couldnt stay green on the day, taking near-risk-free profits, probly keeps dropping but it could put up a fight like CNTO, not worth it for an extra 10-20-cents/share today, probable reshort before the close, ideally into another bounce to 3ish

-$889 loss CNTO Short Stock

Entry comments: REshorted the mid-day bounce, goal is to cover as it takes out day lows and ideally some panic into the 1.80s or 1.70s today or preferably tomorrow for a morning panic

Exit comments: Got no crack the way I want, still big buyers, not sure if temporary or not, but I've learned to play this stock cautiously so taking small loss here to protect my big profits today

$7,354 profit CNTO Short Stock

Entry comments: Shorted this pump after first down day yesterday and squeeze this morning but failure to break out to new highss, topping can sometimes be messy, I'm comfortable being short up here

Exit comments: It's down to $2 so I covered too soon, but I'll take $7,000 profits any day, congrats to all my http://tim.ly/sykesmc students who were also short

Too funny Tim, I was buying this at 1.65 :) Looks like it recently hit its breakout high. Im still holding hoping it will go back up

$6,530 profit ELON Long Stock

Entry comments: Same industry as Nest and CTRL...NEST got taken over by Google for $3.2 billion, CTRL is up 45%, ELON is a deal up only 25% today and one of their board of directors is a founding member of Apple...I'd love to see Apple buy this company to compete with Google, that's low odds, but it did spike $1/nicely at the open today so hopefully if CTRL keeps going this is a cheaper sympathy play and I can sell in the low to mid 3s tomorrow, nice technical support 2.50/2.60

Exit comments: Bigger and bigger sellers at yesterday's high of 3.10ish now down to 3.04 and 3.06, no thanks, I'm taking small profits and will look to possibly buy back on the dip...CTRL is up nearly $2/share premarket so that was the Nest play I should've gone with overnight...close, on the right path at least

$411 profit OPTT Short Stock

Entry comments: Shorting this stock via Interactive Brokers which is up on a headline of a $66 million grant in Australia, but it's old news from 2009 and just new milestones announced on a bad deal they're trying to save so they can attract investors to the project which they've failed to do for years...great short alert tipped by http://tim.ly/supertrader who also shorted, resistance just above and I'll add to the position if it spikes too much as this one usually fades in the afternoon so I'm alerting early

Exit comments: Coming down a bit but still lots of buyers, in this market who knows, I'm scared of big spike at the open, will look to reshort when the action settles down and chart becomes clearer

Because the news is a joke, this could crash fast once people realize it
