Email of the day on short covering

I hope you and the family are well. well done on your XXX trade. What would you do now if you are not in the shares? and why are the shares up 25 per cent today? Is that shorts closing out their positions, realisation that the company will not go bust or just volatility associated with the rights issue? Many thanks

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this question which may be of interest to other subscribers. I agree the most likely reason for today’s significant additional surge today was because of short covering. It’s up almost 100% this week so buying the rebound requires one to have some tolerance of volatility. The only way to deal with that and not lose sleep is to control the size of the position.
