    OP: I *suspect* that death was too recent to have swung their operation in that direction already. I'm guessing it would have been the results of a long-underway effort.

    PY: ">APC Host: I don't believe in Trolls. I do believe there are no shortage of self-important and emotional assholes with a keyboard who hide their ugliness behind a veil of "rational argument".

    It wasn't directed at me but ...

    Ignoring various things I've read over the years, and which I'm too lazy to dig up again, regarding the use of trolls to support various efforts to affect the price of an equity, just go to the Investorvillage (CPST) message board and read a couple dozen of so of the posts by "Pizzaman".

    He consistently posts things saying how the fuel cells are better, the micro-turbines have no chance, the investors are stupid for investing, the engineers adopting the turbine in their applications are incompetent, ...

    All while claiming he has no position, but did once long ago and got out at or near the high. He posts dis-information, such as the turbines are "dirty" and EPA won't pass them even when they are already certified to California's standards, which are the some of the most stringent.

    He may not really be a troll, but after several years of consistent behavior it's difficult to see his tenacious behavior being caused solely by a personality meeting your description. Maybe there's money involved, or not.

    Regardless, the "troll" nomenclature seems a convenient shorthand description for the sort of behavior and I *suspect* is used as such quite frequently.

    The advantage is in brevity and social acceptability. "Troll" is acceptable in "polite" company whereas other terms might not be! ;-))

    MHO,

    O.G.: Looks like another step in the master strategy that TB has mentioned so often. Another leg knocked out from under the US$ as the global exchange currency for various commodities - oil being already weakened in certain trading with some So. Am. countries IIRC?

    09/19/2014: EOD stuff partially copied from blog (up now).
    # Trds: 51, MinTrSz: 20, MaxTrSz: 10200, Vol: 31192, AvTrSz: 612
    Min. Pr: 3.6000, Max Pr: 3.8400, VW Avg. Tr. Pr: 3.6676
    # Buys, Shares: 18 10455, VW Avg Buy Pr: 3.6522
    # Sells, Shares: 29 20350, VW Avg Sell Pr: 3.6753
    # Unkn, Shares: 4 387, VW Avg Unk. Pr: 3.6731
    Buy:Sell 1:1.95 (33.52% "buys"), DlyShts 10016 (32.11%), Dly Sht % of 'sells' 49.22%

    We keep VWAP lows whenever we get high volume, which we did today. Here's VWAPs from 9/8 forward: $5.2195, $4.1670, $4.1214, $4.1345, $4.1653, $3.8236, $3.7423, $3.8828, $3.8700 and $3.6676. You can do the math for pre-split pricing.

    It's starting to look like old times, yep, yep. On top of that, it's beginning to look like the buy and daily short percentage directional correlation may be returning, complete with “choppy” action. For the last three days buy percentage movements of 17.30%, 57.97%, 53.03% and 33.52% were matched by short sales percentage movements of 17.28%, 69.07%, 38.99% and 32.11%.

    What happens if the pattern of weakness in the last and first weeks of the months is still in play? This week should have been one of the “flat to slightly higher” ones if the pattern was still in play.

    Today may have had some EOD paint but the volume, number of trades and price range within the days norm makes me think it wasn't just paint today. With VWAP down -5.23% it would be natural to see some buyers appear. In the last seven minutes there were three trades totaling 3K shares, all at $3.65.

    Again it was a bifurcated trading day. Through 13:22:47 we had 95.96% sells with ...

    The potential selling pressure was there all day with offers at the open of 2K from ATDF and CSTI, 1.1K by ETRF. All these were at $4.20. By 10:08 2.6K from ATDF at $3.90 and 1K from NITE at $3.84 were added. What really assured a price cap was the 15,245 at $3.80 NITE offered at 13:58 though. All trading was below that, as well as all offer changes I noted, thereafter.

    Today was a high-volume day at ~31.19K. For context the 10, 25, 50 and 100-day averages, in thousands, are 11.57, 12.02, 11.68 and 9.92. Yesterday they were ...

    There's 554 missing FINRA shares which likely contain some short sales. I adjusted everything assuming no shorts in there and will ...

    The usual numbers in the blog here.

    Yep! NITE offers 15,245 @ $3.80. Equivalent to 762,250 pre-split shares.

    Well, if the capital raise is successful at least we'll have the cash to pursue infringement issues.

    Wonder about the recycling issues and EPA response, since it's got a half-life of 28.8 years and is a known carcinogen.

    And for more bad news, beyond a sell % so far of 92.2% and a VWAP -04.08% through 13:43:57 ...

    I couldn't catch who it was but at 13:22:33 15,245 offer at $3.80 flashed by before disappearing into the mist as it got either withdrawn or masked by a better offer. Might be NITE? They had big offers shown earlier and are currently offering at $3.65, possibly masking their big offer at $3.80. Since no other MM is showing an offer below $3.84 ATM, it would have to be NITE if that $3.80 is still in play.

    "When we laid our our system requirements on the table they all shook their heads and said "We can't do that!".

    Dawn of a new age of truthfulness? I.e. admitting there are *some* applications for which they are not suitable?

    Aah! I think I fell a breath of fresh air in the room!

    Well, 2K bid of $3.72 by ATDF lasts less than two minutes before being filled in a single block trade. 8K now *offered* at that price.

    JP: Did you get any indication from AXPWD about any materials they might make available? Did you observe any noteworthy activity/response to their presence?
