On the other side is William Ackman and his firm Pershing Square Capital Management, which has sold short shares of the company up in a volume of 1 billion USD.Ackman, she thinks that the company Herbalife, which is on the market for 32 years, is illegal pyramid scheme and thus the value of its shares is zero. He does not think that the company should be declared bankrupt, but considers it a model of entrepreneurship in non-conformity with the law and expects regulators finally close the company.

Pyramid schemes or action is good 100 USD?

Ackman was by the presentation of his opinion quite radical and 20th December presented the 345 Verge presentation that has an tried to prove that Herbalife is a pyramid scheme, since the majority of the company's income comes from the sale of goods to distributors and not from the sale of goods to end users.

Herbalife shares yesterday forfeited by 8.19%.

While the technical picture remains The growth, but still consider the proximity of strong resistances for engaging in short positions. Prelomenia strong resistances is always in the euro require some time and, therefore, we think that even now by defeating maxima year 2012 might take a while. Moreover, tomorrow awaits GDP data, ADP and also behold FOMC meeting, where it will be carefully monitored the voting ratio especially after you have changed the members of the FOMC.Currently produces the steamed Konsolidacni flag, which would by virtue of its preceding trend should have been kinked up, no failure pattern may also be an interesting opportunity.
