When a stock rallies from 1.50 to 8.50 in less than three weeks it looks like a great candidate for a short sale to many people. I tried to enter shorts at three different brokerage firms and there were no shares available at all three firms. It looks like the “obvious trade” is already crowded. Obvious trades rarely work which is why I am LONG SCON right now for a trade. The stock pulled back to the Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) since the move began on August 20. My thinking is that this level will provide short term support for the stock and the early shorts will scramble with buy orders to protect themselves. It is a risky trade and my stop is just below the low of the day. I will likely exit this trade before the close today.
