    R.A.: No way to tell for sure. ARCA has had 9K, 7k, 5K orders very commonly. But they left the market at 14:40, or before, and didn't return on the offer until 15:54 or slightly before. EDIT: But they could still be making trades unseen.

    Most of the time I can't see which MM was involved because I have other things I have to watch too - I just see that a trade has gone off or the b/a has changed and try and log as much as I can.

    Two 9K trades went at $0.1450, one at 14:42:16 (could be slippage in the seconds) and the other 15:55:30.

    With today's action I woulda thunk the MM would not sell for the same price he bought for - it looks like he could've gotten more. There were a lot of buys and sells at higher prices after the 14:42. Maybe he just wanted to stay 100% market-neutral?

    Also, his disposition could've broken it into smaller chunks, or combined with other chunks, and the second 9K might be totally unrelated.

    Starting in that same minute, and going through 14:48, was the 1 9K "sell" and then there were 5 "buys" from $0.1479 to $0.1490. Yours could've been buried right in that ~45.1K shares.

    MrI: Oh Yep. No argument on the 150K and the remainder. I don't spend much time watching or thinking about what I suspect is "normal" investor/trader trading from ATDF, so I often miss implications that might be associated with that.

    Robert: "racist"

    One of the reasons I love reading Walter Williams. Many, many of his columns point out how "racist" the policies designed to help the "racially oppressed" actually result in greater oppression because of how the economic consequences adversely affect those they were supposedly going to help.

    He covers the gamut. I learn something, even if it's just a new way of thinking about a problem, from every one of his columns.

    O.R.: Oh! Sorry for confusion. I thought you might be pointing out something I overlooked. I try to be thorough, but I never seem to get comfortable that I really made it that far, so I'm not to proud to ask.

    Thanks,

    O.R.: "Also, it can result in a reversal to the upside. Since we've been in a down trend and reliability is near random, we're as likely to see a bounce up as a move down if we consider this in isolation."

    What's different from what I stated, other than "rarity"?

    I think we get a report on short position ... let me check ... yep Friday.

    As to ATDF, the offers get stacked up all day long. As best offer gets taken or removed I see the prior best order *usually* pop up.

    Ditto on the bids, but not quite as consistent.

    I've been thinking it's part of a market-making strategy since they almost always improve the current b/a by 1/100th and I see they leave the others in place.

    My take is that ATDF "scalps" on both sides selling (and possibly shorting) from the offer and covering on the bid.

    I'll never know though.

    MrI: and someone wanted to make sure we closed above resistance. Last two trades, after $0.1425-$0.145 trading a lot of shares heading towards the close, had two trades at 15:56, 10K and the last 200 shares, EDIT 1st was $0.1509 not both at $0.151.

    Several times during the day $0.15/$0.151 traded and each time price was forced back.

    But it'll look just dandy on the charts as we see good volume, ~942K, and a close at the high.

    ARCA did their best to do a late-day keep us down with a $0.145 offer of 9K at 15:54 after being away since 14:40.

    I guess they didn't know someone was waiting 'till the last few minutes to make a buy at market.

    Buy percentage looks about 63%, so daily shorts should be high today.

    Edmund: I agree. But after we invented all those good things, what happened is what you described.

    Both scenarios are correct. Even during the invention of those good things, we had Hamilton arguing for the bankers, so power and influence was trying to exert itself even then.

    Over time it gained control.

    John: That's a very large possibility. Over the last several years CPST units have been running on hog farm waste pond generated gas, landfill gas etc in several places around the world.

    This particular application for energy capture and use is in the very early stages of adoption.

    Shoot WTB: We invented it. Check back in the early part of the last century to see how we got the railroads, U.S. Steel, the big banks (J.P. Morgan), ...

    Their best stroke was getting a Federal Reserve instituted while most of congress was on holiday (Christmas IIRC), which would not have happened if the full congress was present.

    Money and power have always held sway, ameliorated only by people subject to them believing in them. The *very* wealthy movers and shakers have generally always believed they were for "those other folks".

    MrI: Yeah, MAXM came in and joined CANT in about 3 minutes. They were in briefly off and on, *infrequently*, several times since the PIPE was done.

    I think it was JP that mentioned they also had a brokerage? If so it could be just someone there that's thinking for $0.142 they could take a small position.

    ARCA keeping us off balance today. Not doing hit & run and go away for a while. Staying in, reducing offers every once in a while to try and get rid of some.

    NITE & WABR not yet getting really competitive on the offer yet, but they have made a couple moves to stay close to ARCA.

    CANT just bid above NITE, reducing b/a spread to 2/10ths from 3/10ths, so that ought to get the misers on one side or the other moving ... unless they're going for 1/100th of a penny today.

    WTB: Our service switched to CNG diesels last year and that alone made a huge difference in the noise level.

    Amazing what replacing an "explosion" within cylinders with a "burn" within cylinders will do for noise levels.

    Depending on muffling, the (CPST) turbine may or may not be quieter. The normal industrial installations are 60(?) db at ... 100 feet? I forget the distance, but it's not real loud and not real quiet.

    I assume on a truck they wouldn't be adding much for noise suppression, so it should run about that level I guess. But it is closer to a "white noise" whine, so that's likely an improvement.

    ARCA returns 11:32 with 7K @ $0.145 offer, undercutting WABR's $0.148.
