Short term swing of an unshortable or hard to borrow stock

  1. I just cant find any kind of correlation or trend. I am basically looking for a high percentage play.

    Any ideas?
  2. Hard to borrow stocks are usually that way for a reason. Most often it is because they are very cheap or because they are very thin stocks.

    Trading thin stocks can be lucrative because volatility can be explosive when things go right. The big problem with this type of stock is getting out. You might have a couple of thousand shares of a $3 stock but can't get out at a decent price because of a lopsided market or because the MM has undue influence on stock direction.
