    TB: I must be learning - that was my first though too!

    Your attempts to educate are sinking in, maybe like in the La Brea Tar Pits, but sinking in. :-))

    My newer inflection point calculations still have positive readings in the two shortest periods (but one is weakening slightly), and the longer periods continue showing (mostly) increasing weakening.

    VWAP, which yesterday broke trend of steadily eking out small gains and fell -03.83%, fell another -01.30%. This was in spite of a couple long spurts of buying right around the $1.12 area that makes me suspect the unseen support crew was at work.

    Yesterday, regarding the general weakening, I said “If this continues I expect the USC (Unseen Support Crew) will be called into action again. I wonder if we'll have to see sub-$1 to bring them in again”. Apparently not – had ...

    Today's low, high, VWAP, trade volume, and daily short sales moved 0.92%, -0.17%, -01.30%, -59.04% and -70.53% respectively. Price spread today was 4.55% vs. 5.69%, 4.34%, 6.94%, 13.89%, 17.14%, 13.21%, 33.54% (twitchy day – see first note and trading breakdowns for 12/8), 4.83% and 7.68% on prior days.

    The larger trades (>= 500) occurred on 7 of the 68 trades, 10.29%. These 7,100 shares were 48.29% of day's volume, and traded at a VWAP of $1.1244. 3 of the ...

    The other 61 trades, 89.71% of the day's trades, traded 7,603 shares, 51.71% of the days volume. The VWAP was $1.1172. 47 trades ...

    ADF and BATS bots are probing on the bid side ... expect to see the days sixth trade soon ... next hour? :-))

    Flow joined the effort with a 1 share bid. This usually leads to something.

    Great trades Mercy!

    Nothing wrong with a ~12%+ one-day (several hour?) scalp.

    12/16/2014: EOD stuff partially copied from the blog (up now).
    # Trds: 60, MinTrSz: 41, MaxTrSz: 8750, Vol: 35900, AvTrSz: 598
    Min. Pr: 1.0900, Max Pr: 1.1520, VW Avg. Tr. Pr: 1.1353

    # Unkn, Shares: 3 1584, VW Avg Unk. Pr: 1.1244
    Buy:Sell 1:1.77 (34.45% "buys"), DlyShts 6447 (17.96%), Dly Sht % of 'sells' 29.38%

    In the 12/12 note about the daily shorts I added to the header recently I included “... This would suggest the market would be moved lower so the MM(s) could make covering buys at a lower price ... [a couple more paragraphs about my understanding seems reasonably close to reality] ...

    Yesterday I mentioned the mildly positive things were mixed with some negative concerns, such as the volume remaining low and average trade size continuing to fall. Today the negatives took over the show as volume rose above the 10 and 100-day averages and VWAP moved below all the averages of $1.1589, $1.1942, $1.3957, $1.9568, $3.1218 and $5.4264 for the 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 and 200-day periods respectively. And this occurred on a much larger than average trade size as more and larger “large” trades absolutely dominated today.

    My newer inflection point calculations still have positive readings in the two shortest periods, but they are weaker and all the longer periods gave up the decreasing weakening trends and now show increasing weakening. Keeping in mind that volume (up) and buy percentage (down) are the primary drivers, this makes sense. Then we add in ...

    VWAP broke trend of steadily eking out small gains and fell -03.83%.

    If this continues I expect the USC (Unseen Support Crew) will be called into action again. I wonder if we'll have to see sub-$1 to bring them in again.

    I mentioned yesterday my concern that average trade size continues falling. It would appear to have recovered today, but for two things: one day does not a trend make and the average trade size was heavily skewed by several much larger than normal large trades: 3,000, 3,700, 3,800 and 8,750. I'm not saying to discount today's 598 average trade size, but ...

    Today's low, high, VWAP, trade volume, and daily short sales moved -5.23%, -4.00%, -03.83%, 114.34% and 329.80% respectively. Price spread today was 5.69% vs. 4.34%, 6.94%, 13.89%, 17.14%, 13.21%, 33.54% (twitchy day – see first note and trading breakdowns for 12/8), 4.83%, 7.68% and 8.18% on prior days.

    The larger trades (>= 500) occurred on 16 of the 60 trades, 26.67%. These 29,036 shares were 80.88% of day's volume, and traded at a VWAP of $1.1366. 5 of the ...

    The other 44 trades, 73.33% of the day's trades, traded 6,864 shares, 19.12% of the days volume. The VWAP was $1.1301. 21 trades ...

    WWT: I might disagree with his conclusion, but he laid out up-front what caused him to start thinking that way and laid out his considerations. So I found it useful even though he really didn't do a lot of deep digging in this article.

    Some of the comments were useful but others were just folks defending their positions I think. Anyway, a light read and it added something for me to consider in the future when I look at things ... at least on a comparative basis.

    When you are still early in the learning, as I consider myself to be, every little bit helps.

    The mildly positive things, such as better buy percentage averages, VWAP stability with small improvements and my newer inflection points having the beginnings of positive moves, are mixed with some negative concerns, such as the volume remaining low and average trade size continuing to fall.

    VB: After watching China, Lynas, Molycorp, GWM, ... and the economy, I'm suspecting that nothing comes to fruition in the time-line of my remaining lifetime, if ever.

    I'll just keep my hands clean until I see something really positive develop as stuff actually comes out of the ground and makes it's way to a real customer's hands. I might miss a lot of upside, but that's OK by me.

    Rick: If you saw my earlier reply today ignore it. I checked ETRade's site and read the wrong line which had $1.18 (last trade so far today). Their site does show $1.20 for Friday.

    I see SA doesn't like ftp urls, the NYE/ARCA source.
