    (AXIH): "AXION Receives $1.71 Million in Orders for ECOTRAX® Tunnel-Tie System"

    "... scheduled for installation in early spring".

    Interesting to me is that the engineering is not just within AXIH: "...Eastern Rail's President Miguel Morales designed a polymer-adhering grout that embeds into the ECOTRAX® embossing pattern as it adheres to the concrete, locking the ties in place".

    If this sort of collaboration is common among AXIH's customers ...

    RK: I suspected, and voiced, such a suspicion a few times in the past regarding our various financing entities.

    My TFH is insistent it goes on and I'm bereft of arguments or evidence to counter my TFH's suspicions.

    The threat of "orange jump suits" has been, and remains laughable, ever since I saw the CNBC piece on the SEC in which employees could be clearly seen watching porn on their computers. I have other reasons as well, demonstrated in an article or blog I did several years ago on apparent UNG manipulation that I sent to the CFTC and SEC and got a "shut the dummy up" phone call as the final result.

    In other news, short % 2/24 ~50%, 3/2-3/3 48%+, much higher than normal. Average 2/6-2/23 was 23%. I read these as folks taking profits effects, not big additional "real" shorts.

    Hm, I seem to have forgotten to mention that table was NASDAQ only data. Short volume from all sources was higher, of course. While I'm thinking of it, note also that trade volumes will not match our daily volume even if all reporting sources are are included because many don't report trade volume at all if they had no short sales.

    R.A: "The 'exempt' comes from trading laws that permit short sales *without borrow or margin requirements* when a derivative security owned is guaranteed to provide the shares shorted within the delivery window. "

    ISTR Rule 204D or 206D - I can't recall precisely - is the rule. Anyway, somewhat supporting your thesis:

    There was one other case from ARCA that had a small exempt amount on a small short quantity. Approaching 100% was from NASDAQ though. Note the dates when change *began*.

    DRich: Yep. After a good volume start, an overshoot of my $1.20 expected target/resistance, it fell back to ~ $1.18ish and volume evaporated.

    It's started to come back into the close. Maybe it's due to the fall-off on the NASDAQ after it hit 5K yesterday?

    It's back to $1.20/1 again, so maybe that's just the resistance showing up?

    IMO, it will take off after the Q report as the good news gets iterated.

    If I'm right, now (that being in the next couple weeks if the expected pullback materializes) would be the time to be adding a bit to a position.

    That's what I'm looking to do. If it had come back more today I would've replaced those shares.

    I'm like Janet Yellen now - "patience" guides my actions.

    Tomcat: "I'm long AXPW but question my judgment daily"

    Well, that negates your insanity plea in any court! ;-))

    As to your Q, "Eaton parallel-electric hybrid system" is a completely different animal than the engine-dominant series electric that ePower is doing.

    Sold trading blocks $1.22 - $1.26. Will await expected pullback and add back in, maybe even today.

    Best move was on a recently opened Tradeking account where I had added a trading block at $1.04 ($1.05xx with fees) and sold that one for ~20% gain since opening position on 2/9.

    DRich: I've still got my $1.12 trading blocks. I was a little early on that bunch.

    If you're like me though, I don't mind missing a little upside and only my aggressive nature keeps me getting in a bit early sometimes and having to wait longer than anticipated.

    $600K revenue over the next four months will allow for both a nice forecast in the next CC and a nice Q/Q and YoY revenue move in the following quarter.

    That's even w/o any possible additional sales now that they are certified for tier 1 supplier to automotive (China sales can move now - buses and Great Wall?) and what might come from the energy management initiative.

    I'd sure like to get confirmation on that last item and find out what it really is - maybe in the next CC?

    Re "... see a price move in a few days"

    Got trading completely at and above that descending resistance yesterday, 3/2, and a close above. The high hit right at that old price resistance of $1.12, also the current upper Bolinger limit. This occurred with volume rising over two days as we came off a low volume bottoming on 2/26.

    Should confirm today with another close above. However, price is at the upper Bollinger limit and the lower limit is down at $0.9183, so some sideways or even down to get to mid-point is certainly possible here.

    If we do continue up and volume continues to improve $1.20 looks very reasonable.

    Buy:sell ended ~3:1, a good sign. Short percentage was ~48.6%, a reasonable value even though a bit higher than I would like to see on a sustainable push up. Given that, I think a stall here is somewhat likely, but the short percentage is not high enough to make that "highly likely" IMO.

    With the highest close, $1.08, since the $1.11 of 2/5, I wouldn't be surprised to see a few days spent around this area before any direction is again established. I'm thinking higher is more likely.

    MrI: "the momo guys get out even faster than the B guys"

    I've heard i said that markets fall much faster than they rise. Even a fast rise will be overshadowed by the speed of the fall.

    That seems to make sense with swing traders and momo traders in the markets.

    PY: Can't disagree. I presume the majority of Bs are from experienced Maxim clients and Maxim is doing what all the squid banks have done to create the environment that allows them and their favored clients to benefit.

    Since Maxim is also a market-maker, that arm is exempt from certain REG SHO prohibitions against naked shorting. So that unit can create this volume and wild volume swings to produce the desired results.

    In ignorance, of course,

    RK: I'm leaning towards Maxim or one of their clients, likely experienced in this game, creating volume to profit.

    With a spread of $0.24 - $0.355, those sorts can profit handsomely on this kind of volume.

    ~10.266MM shares through 15:01.
