OBLN seems like a good shorting opportunity.. reminds me of YUMA after its reverse stock split.. Was curious to know your thoughts and see if I'm on the right track with my thesis.

I hate shorting stuff down 10% on the day already. That being said, it likely continues to fade, but you need to be careful with these reverse split stocks because the float is so low

@MichaelGoode Hi Michael, I was wondering if you are able to trade OTC grey market stocks with IB? It's not letting me, saying "Trading in OTC grey market stocks is not supported". Really frustrating. Is there any solutions for this? Thanks!

There is no way around this -- if you have a position in a grey-market stock at IB they will let you call the trade desk to close it out. But they won't let you open new positions in grey market stocks. If for whatever reason you want to trade grey market stocks you will have to use another broker.

@MichaelGoode Hi Michael. You mention on your blog that you do not use TWS anymore, but you are still using Interactive Brokers. I was just wondering if you are using DAS connected with IB or a different broker for the charts and L2 but use IB to execute orders. Thank you.

I don't know where I would have said that -- I still use TWS. I do use DAS Pro with Centerpoint for level 2 and charts

Oh sorry, I didn't read that carefully. You replied to someone on your blog that you still use TWS but not time and sales and L2. Do you think DAS level 2 and time and sales is more accurate than IB's?

TWS L2 & time and sales is just as good but I have always considered TWS charts ugly. I have used them in the past but I just find it easier to use DAS Pro and I have to pay for those charts / L2 anyway whereas I don't have to pay for the IB L2 if I don't want it
