  • REE/Strategic Minerals Concentrator, March 18, 2014 [View instapost]
    (OTCPK:LYSCF): Pre-market 500K @ $0.1757 traded. Based on last evening's ASX, reasonable price range.

    B/a at the time was $0.17/$0.175, so classified as a "buy".

    Raleigh: No way to know,but I'm suspecting that *some* hesitation in moving up will be seen as the long-time holders that were underwater for so long decide that discretion is the better part of valor for a *portion* of their holdings. Their mindset might be in the "we've seen this movie before" and want to either cut some loses or take some profits.

    If a substantial portion act in this way it could offset any groundswell, to some degree, of new participants trying to buy.

    We might also find ourselves trapped in some macro view of the space at the time. If it's not really positive, the groundswell might not be all that enthusiastic.

    Generally I'm thinking, again, that a grind up (which I do like) could be the most likely result after an initial blip.

    As JP has highlighted, the scars of being whipped for so long will take time to disappear.

    MHO,

    (OTCQB:AXIH) "AXION Pre-Announces Strong Revenue Growth for First Quarter 2014"

    "... expects revenues for the first quarter of 2014 to be $4.9 million, a 182% increase over the same period in 2013. First quarter revenues equate to nearly 75% of AXION's 2013 full year revenues. The Company's Engineered Products and Reprocessing Division each contributed approximately 50% of total revenues."

    "... stated on our last call, to date, we are working on approximately $30 million in current sales opportunities and projects for our Engineered Products Division that are all at different phases of the sales process. Our pipeline for our Engineered Products Division consists of 57 active opportunities and 51 customers with the potential to close by the end of 2014. The number is compelling given that our first quarter of this year alone comprises of almost 75% of 2013's full year revenues".

    (CPST): As I've mentioned, Wrightspeed would likely be the first to benefit (CPST) in the mobile market: "Wrightspeed and Ratto Group Clean Up the North Bay"

    "Ian Wright, Wrightspeed’s founder and CEO, agrees, “The route HD was engineered for the refuse and recycling truck application, where it can reduce fuel spend by $35k per year and dramatically reduce noise pollution.”".

    04/16/2014: EOD stuff partially copied from blog (up now).

    Buy:Sell 1.06:1 (50.87% "buys"), DlyShts 608718 (44.15%), Dly Sht % of 'sells' 91.81%

    A cursory look at my traditional TA charts suggests some support may appear in the $0.122-$0.125 range. However, I feel compelled to warn that our long-term behavior suggests these will not hold. As we get nearer to those points we may be able to better assess the chances.

    As with yesterday, we had a constant price weakening throughout the day, seen in the trading breakdown by time. This appears to be a result of the continued very aggressive behavior on the sell side by those MMs I've mentioned so many times.

    ARCA was in pre-market again on both sides with a 5K $0.131 bid and a 4K $0.249 offer. They left the buy side at the open. Their first move on the sell side came at 11:49, later than usual, undercutting the best offer of $0.146 from NITE & WABR with a $0.14 5K share offer. Their behavior today was popping in and out ...

    Adding to the distress today was a NITE offer for 486.5K shares at $0.138 that appeared at 13:56:32. The highest trade price subsequent to the entry of that offer was $0.1382 in that same second. From that point forward, $0.138 was it.

    I noted yesterday we did not see our buy percentage improve, relative to the prior day, as price weakened. Today we did see the usual behavior as buy percentage improved from 32.2% to 50.9%. I still have concern ...

    What I suggested yesterday, still applies I think - regardless of technical items, we've got some more movement down in our near-term future.

    The average of the lowest 20 VWAPs times 80% today is $0.1012 vs. $0.0996, $0.0979, $0.0954, $0.0929, $0.0904, $0.0884, $0.0865, $0.0848 and $0.0831 on prior days. 80% of today's VWAP is $0.1100 vs. $0.1154, $0.1313, $0.1351, $0.1425, $0.1485, $0.1397, $0.1468, $0.1505 and $0.1522 on prior days. These are potential prices for the next tranche of shares to the PIPErs.

    Today's low, high, VWAP, trade volume, and daily short sales moved -3.70%, -5.49%, -4.70%, 1.59%, 66.59% respectively. Price spread today was 19.23% vs. 21.48%, 7.97%, 14.31%, 8.57% 5.71%, 9.40%, 7.78%, 11.30% and 14.22% on prior days.

    The high of the day was one trade at the open of 25K shares for $0.1550. With the next highest price of $0.1460 ...

    The larger trades (>= 15K) occurred on 19 of the 130 trades, 14.62%. These 755,750 shares were 54.81% of day's volume, and traded at a VWAP of $0.1372. 6 of these trades ...

    The other 111 trades, 85.38% of the day's trades, traded 623,143 shares, 45.19% of the days volume. The VWAP was $0.1379. 60 trades, 54.05%, were ...

    We have the fourth consecutive day of lower highs, lows, VWAPs and closes and volume rose again.

    Short percentage behaved as I would expect: as buy percentage moved from ~32% to ~51% the daily short sales percentage moved from ~27% to ~44%.

    All the usual in the blog here.

    Ranma: "issued shares with a basis about .12 - .15"

    If that's the 80% number, that's way too high.

    JP: Yeah, I was just looking at that on my charts while doing my EOD stuff.

    After we've seen so many positive indicators fail, I've become rather jaded about placing any hope on that sort of stuff.

    TB: W/o digging, ISTR best chance below would be one of our prior all-time lows ... $0.12? And the way that goes now, "best chances" may be "slim" and "none".

    I had said yesterday “$0.15 still seems the best nearby potential support point. We'll have to keep our eyes peeled as we approach though – there's a lot of reasons to suspect that it might have difficulty holding there, some of which are based on traditional TA stuff”. I also posted a reply to MrI that mentioned the aggressiveness seen made me say I wouldn't want to place any bets on it.
    http://seekingalpha.co...

    Today we blew right through $0.15 with, again, “all-day weakness”.

    ARCA was in pre-market again on both sides with a 5K $0.131 bid and a 4K $0.249 offer. They had left the buy side by 09:35. Their first move on the sell side came ...

    the rest of the day is that ARCA and the usual market-makers were very aggressive, beginning right from the open and continuing throughout the day. The usual ARCA, WABR, ATDF, CSTI and NITE behavior was evident and one usually not seen player, VFIN, participated as well late in the day.

    As with yesterday, this again resulted in a constant price weakening throughout the day, seen in the trading breakdown by time.

    Uncommonly, we did not see our buy percentage improve, relative ...

    All that makes me think, regardless of technical items, we've got some more movement down in our near-term future. ...

    The average of the lowest 20 VWAPs times 80% today is $0.0996 vs. $0.0979, $0.0954, $0.0929, $0.0904, $0.0884, $0.0865, $0.0848, $0.0831 and $0.0819 on prior days. 80% of today's VWAP is $0.1154 vs. $0.1313, $0.1351, $0.1425, $0.1485, $0.1397, $0.1468, $0.1505, $0.1522 and $0.1399 on prior days. These are potential prices for the next tranche of shares to the PIPErs.

    Today's low, high, VWAP, trade volume, and daily short sales moved -15.25%, -4.65%, -12.06%, 201.98% and 216.37% respectively. Price spread today was 21.48% vs. 7.97%, 14.31%, 8.57% 5.71%, 9.40%, 7.78%, 11.30%, 14.22% and 5.88% on prior days.

    The high of the day was one trade ...

    The larger trades (>= 15K) occurred on 22 of the 197 trades, 11.17%. These 522,600 shares were 38.50% of day's volume, and traded at a VWAP of $0.1443. 4 of these trades, ...

    The other 175 trades, 88.83% of the day's trades, traded 834,755 shares, 61.50% of the days volume. The VWAP was $0.1443. 77 trades, 44.00% ...

    We have the third consecutive day of lower highs, lows, VWAPs and closes and we are back to seeing this on rising volume despite my hope ...

    We again had “all day weakness” in price action.

    The usual in the blog here.

    ABM: ARCA has been in most of the morning. Similar to recent prior days.

    Today they did a little more popping in and out compared to the last 2-3 days.

    ABM: I don't think so. Keep in mind that we have seen regular monthly cycles that we see appreciation starting near EOM coming into start of next month and then a period of either "flattish" or weakening price.

    I think we're just entering the latter period.

    I suspect this has to do with getting some low prices injected into the 20-day window used to calculate true-up and issue prices. They should be ending in the next month or two?
