INFN closed trading yesterday at $12.51 and crashed down after market to $8.90, equivalent to a 29% decrease from the closing price.

INFN has a float of 139.12 million shares and traded 1.59 times the normal daily trading volume on Wednesday. For trading purposes, I would like to see INFN open trading on Thursday below $10.10 and if it does I would be looking to take a short position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.20 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap down.
