    Reason for $GALE being up 11% today? Riding the $APPY wave?

    • pattygee: but on low volume

    • deercreekvols: True..it has been some time since $GALE made any move other than down
      3/31/14
    • MichaelJ8: probably short covering. I predict GALE will be between 2-2.50 for a while.

    • chipster71: Shorts covering on...??? Good news for $GALE I think it was hyper crunched because of the sector wide sell off buyers bought in.
      3/31/14
    • MichaelJ8: well.. shorts covering because they've made so much already... but could be anything.

    • jonomatic_2000: good to see some kind of green

    • deercreekvols: it is good to see $GALE moving upward thanks for the comments

    • dannick: The Street called them a dead cat bounce yesterday. That's probably a big chunk of the reason.

    • dannick: added to a sector wide 2 day recovery (Biotech up yesterday and today)
      4/1/14
    • dannick: And probably some short covering.

    • deercreekvols: Good points dannick...$GALE moves mirror the market, so it seems

    • dannick: The street are playing puppet master. When it goes down they say DCB, when it goes up the write a short piece. It would be impressive if it

    • dannick: wasn't so dispiciable.

    • deercreekvols: A great way to describe the trials of $GALE

    • dannick: It is what it is, you can either trade with them (with a core long holding) or you can trade against them.
      4/3/14
    • dannick: Or you can do both, using CFDs and spread betting to provide insurance on your long position when the short attacks and going double long
      4/3/14
    • dannick: with CFDs/spreads in the good times. It's what I've started doing this week after weeks of research.
      4/3/14
    • dannick: But not with GALE (not yet at least)
      4/3/14
    • deercreekvols: Research is always a good thing- congratulations on your work
      4/3/14
    • dannick: Don't congratulate me until next week. I may turn out to be far less smart than i think I am. I've stacked the decks so max loss is 5K
      4/3/14
    • dannick: but gain is 10K for every 50% gain (ish - will depend on the price over the next week). CFDs/Spreads are v. risky so research is a must must

    • deercreekvols: This is why I handle all of my own investments. Gains are mine. Losses are mine. Nobody to blame but me. Easier to sleep at night.

    • dannick: I don't think there is a single person in this world I would hand my money too. Even if a fund does v. well the amount you see is piddly

    • al roman: DC,Gale was a tough subject and probably actually did come down to particle/non particle physics sort of on the lines of Glutithione.
