    R.A: "It smells to me of somebody with influence silencing the trading data on AXPIW and hiding their accumulating mode."

    Use "Stop Limit" orders instead. That protects you somewhat.

    "It's like a retirement home"

    Usually found only inside large corporations in some corner function that management seldom thinks about.

    I briefly worked with a guy that ran his farm from the office about six hours a day. Had been doing it for years while collecting a big engineering salary, annual COLA + merit increases, etc.

    It's worth the FR income generated calculated out to some discounted NPV?

    "eliminates Lead in its entirety"

    No. Emphasis added: "finished lead-free carbon NEGATIVE electrode".

    Until they eliminate the positive, there's still lead. :-)

    MrI: market depth is *very* similar, sans the summary header showing the top first few bids/asks order in a separate box on the top. This *could* be because I've not some some flag, but I don't recall seeing something like that.

    Sorry I didn't follow the link initially - busy, busy, busy.

    01/21/2015: EOD stuff partially copied from blog (up now).

    Buy:Sell 1:3.90 (20.16% "buys"), DlyShts 0 (00.00%), Dly Sht % of 'sells' 0.00%

    If today was another attack on share price it's not as obvious or certain. Look at the trading breakdowns by time and price and note the buy percentages, VWAP trend (which had some recovery during the day), and “gapiness”. Add in the reduced volume and the determination of an attack is less certain. Regardless, VWAP movement of another -21.35% would suggest an attack was underway since the buy percentage was again anemic at ~20.2%. This reading indicates selling pressure was dominant.

    For the fifth day out of six we have the high set by the first trade(s) of the day. We did break the recent pattern of three consecutive days setting the low in the last trade(s) (ignoring the 75 share odd-lot sell at 15:59:38 - see below).

    Today was low volume but we did see a change – trading breakdown by arbitrary time was not straight down on VWAP – we had some bumpiness, “gapiness” (seen in the price breakdown), and a close above the (reported) low by 2.42%.

    I would like to read a lot of positive into this but ...

    Yesterday's volume was ... above the ... averages, ... while buy percentage fell to 25.9% and VWAP was down -13.25%. The prior day was ... Today we are (maybe?) moving back to the recent “normal” with ~45.8K traded, still ... Again moving towards the recent “normal”, the buy percentage dropped to ~20.2% and VWAP is down again, this time by another -21.35%.

    Note the low I show, $0.4470, was a single 1-share buy at 9:43:22. Ignoring that trade would give a reasonable low of $0.50 (2 sells totaling ~10K). Using that as the low the following low movement would be -18.03% instead of -26.72% and the spread would be 22.02% rather than 36.49%.

    Today's low, high, VWAP, trade volume, and daily short sales moved -26.72%, -18.65%, -21.35%, -33.25% and -30.13%. Price spread today was 36.49% vs. 20.26%, 14.60%, 10.82%, 27.13%, 16.48%, 9.64%, 7.22%, 1.02% and 5.21% on prior days.

    The larger trades (>= 500) occurred on 26 of the 56 trades, 46.43%. These 41,154 shares were 89.95% of day's volume, and traded at a VWAP of $0.5344. 9 of ...

    The other 30 trades, 53.57%, traded 4,600 shares, 10.05% of the days volume. The VWAP was $0.5497. 9 trades ...

    MrI: I'm not yet fa,iliar with "TotlView". ISTR reading something about it in the past - a NASDAQ offered product?

    Anywya, "Market Depth" is Power ETrade Pro's equivalent of Level II and some added(?) stuff, Can select fixed or custom views, consolidate ecn quotes at the same level or not, add fields like $ chg, % chg, ..., bids/ask, bids/asks changes, b/a time, ... Then it has color bands for levels of bids and asks, font type and size ...

    One of the many niceties available with the Power ETP package.

    D Lane: It's early, but a simple reversion to the mean, which is quite common, should put it to $0.82-$0.84.

    Did anyone buy in recently?

    Making higher lows and highs now and oscillators showing strength.

    If not, it's getting to a level where there should be a small pullback before *possibly* pushing up some more.

    Item 2: I'm thinking maybe a new blog with a link back here would be good, reducing load time. Maybe I'd put a bunch of the links to articles and such in the header too?

    Agree?

    MrI: The 40K bids came on the NASDAQ and were quickly hidden by better bids on NASDAQ.
    9:47:11 $0.532x40K, 9:54:40 $0.54x4K, 11:24:11 & 11:27:40 $0.502x40K.

    After that it was withdrawn as it no longer shows on "Market Depth" which shows multiple levels for each exchange, mostly NASDAQ.

    Today was another obvious attack on share price IMO. Look at the trading breakdowns by time and price and note the buy percentages and VWAP trend.

    For the fourth day out of five we have the high set by the first trade(s) of the day. For the third consecutive day the low is set in the last trade(s). See below.

    Yesterday, after noting volume was below all my averages, I said “This should mean continued volatility”. Voila! Today volume was 143.72%, 92.18%, 54.38% and 66.46% above the 10, 25, 50 and 100-day averages, respectively, while buy percentage fell to 25.9% and VWAP was down -13.25%.

    Note the low of $0.61 was set by a 1 share (14:57:38) and a 100 share trade (last of the day), and the high was set by single 500 share trade at 09:30:10, third of the day. The next lower price was $0.7499 (trades totaling 3K shares – I think it was really a single order as the two trades were both buys in the same second, 09:36:38), followed by $0.7401 (one sell of 1K at 9:45:05). Discounting all of those in favor of some with multiple trades and some volume, we could use $0.63 and $0.74 as the extremes. The following low and high movement and the spread would become -14.86%, -16.84% and 17.46%.

    Today's low, high, VWAP, trade volume, and daily short sales moved -17.57%, -15.72%, -13.25%, 271.33% and 12.51%. Price spread today was 20.26% vs. 14.60%, 10.82%, 27.13%, 16.48%, 9.64%, 7.22%, 1.02%, 5.21% and 5.21% on prior days.

    The larger trades (>= 500) occurred on 38 of the 86 trades, 44.19%. These 61,398 shares were 89.58% of day's volume, and traded at a VWAP of $0.6833. 10 of the ...

    The other 48 trades, 55.81%, traded 7,145 shares, 10.42% of the days volume. The VWAP was $0.6658. 10 trades ...

    The usual is in the blog here.
