    Had a good result today with China Media Holdings (CCME, went up over 15%, dumping it at the moment for $16,000 profit.

    Going to make a risky play now, Selling short Hyatt Hotels (H), hoping it falls below $38.25.

    Result! Sold Short a Chinese Recycling Company (CREG) after it rallied over 11.5% today. Tense few moments coming up now, ordered it to be bought back, anywhere under 5.75 will land me a $100,000+ profit.

    Haha, spoke without thinking there, there must have been a problem with the software because it was quoting that the price had gone to $0.00.
