Traders have bubble talk on their mind as they watch the action in Cynk Technology Corp. (OTC: CYNK) - a penny stock with a market cap of nearly $6 billion. Shares are up 34.6% mid-day to $19.80 as traders watch the 'greater fool' game play out.

Unfortunately for traders it is nearly impossible to get a borrow on the stock to short it. Anyone buying the stock for more than a few minutes is a fool as a trading halt could be imminent.

UPDATE 2: While the SEC and FINRA would not confirm, sources inform StreetInsider.com that regulators are actively looking at CYNK. A trading halt could be imminent.

I received information about this stock in early June, and I knew about this happening well in advance. It is actually quite a sophisticated exercise, and had they not halted trading on the stock it actually would have gone up an additional 200 % from current levels. However, I was afraid this may happen so I was lucky enough to get out just in time. I made over 3 million on a 25k "investment". Good times. I certainly will never expose everything though, you guys can figure that out on your own. I did kind of feel like bragging though, as foolish as that may be. Cheers!
