Excessive shorting ?

Pre-market spikes are back again. I really wish people would stop shorting and then getting squeezed when mildly positive news comes out. Today’s excuse is the January jobs number. Just the other day was the read on Q4-GDP, not a good number.  Ignore the bad news and embrace the good news is what markets do more often than not.  The Dow has a date with 14K. Then we can worry about the fallout.
