I would have shorted the close

Great run with XOMA. Anyone who held through the breakout did very well. XOMA came to my attention in late trading with a short signal. I tried to short but interactive brokers didn't have any shares to borrow. This is actually a bullish sign and if followed up with other brokers without shares then that raises the entry for the short fade. This was not the case. Several people in my chat room with different brokers had shares and so it was only a problem with my broker.

I believe XOMA will retrace back under 6.80 (after that it may keep going down or go back up but the odds favor further down)Great run with XOMA. Anyone who held through the breakout did very well.

I am not short XOMA but I would be if I could.
