Recently closed short trades

In reviewing the Active Short Trades category, the following trades will be removed: FCH- Exceeded the 5.50 suggested stop level shortly after it was suggested in the last video update on Jan 23rd.  For anyone still in this trade, I think that the odds are still good for at least T1 to be hit soon but I'm trying to move out some of the less attractive trades ideas on the site to make room for some new trade ideas so FCH will be moved to the Completed Trades Category. GMCR- Stopped out as per the suggested criteria back on Jan 2nd. [...]

SOCL etf

just an fyi- i mentioned below that IB (Interactive Brokers) did not have any shares of the social media stock etf, SOCL, available to short but that was only briefly following when FB started trading.  as i mentioned, IB has about the best availability of issues available to short amongst all the brokers and they also have a very convenient feature available on their TWS trading platform.  you can add a "Shortable" field to the screen which is color coded to show the availability, or lack-thereof, of shares of stock available for shorting.  for example, two of the stocks on my [...]
