Tim Sykes' NLST trade, Nov 18, 2009
According to the log on Tim's site, the buy level was $4.16, sell level $4.40. It is interesting that the stock was going up on the day the trade was reported, but Tim's blog makes one feel he approaches the stock with a short bias. Most likely this is a short trade initiated the day before, Nov 17. If so, the trade was closed early the next day's morning which in this case proved prudent. This is an example illustrating how long to wait before entering a short trade -- waiting for the market to prove one's assessment.
