    Iindelco: Metro would have to get out of his ePower truck to get into the 999. Tough decision ... unless he's a "closet railfanboy" willing to "come out". ;-))

    Ranma: I suspect some computer activity there as NITE was best on both sides at the time. The next best bid, discounting a possibly hidden $3.02 x 100 also from NITE, was $2.70 x 1K from CDEL. On the offer next best, again ignoring a possibly hidden $3.18x100 from NITE, was $3.35 x 100 from CDEL.

    Since we had no movement and only one trade, maybe there's some kind of timer/confirmation process that NITE does that causes a withdrawal and re-entry?

    Don't know, but the short duration that exposed the "next best" stuff makes me think along these lines.

    FPA: The common wisdom gleaned from many posts and digging here is that several thousand(?) cycles are known possible to 100% DoD without damage.

    The real wisdom thus far is "we don't know" because they stopped testing at 2K, IIRC. The cycles are very long.

    Wtb: " looks like I was composing as metroneanderthal was posting just above"

    That's OK. As with music, or any art form, our lives are enriched by multiple compositions from multiple gifted composers!

    10/16/2014: EOD stuff partially copied from blog (up now).
    # Trds: 29, MinTrSz: 20, MaxTrSz: 900, Vol: 6888, AvTrSz: 238

    Buy:Sell 1:1.35 (41.33% "buys"), DlyShts 2355 (34.19%), Dly Sht % of 'sells' 61.28%

    The FINRA short data had an error in the “final” file from 10/14, which has not been resolved yet. Further the “final” file creation experienced problems on the 10/15 run and has not been provided yet. Last estimate is it would appear last evening, but no luck. Anyway, corrections to the short data have not yet been made to the 14th and later short sales data I normally provide.

    BTW, did I mention the traditional TA chart is ugly?

    Today's high was set by a single 100 share buy for $3.25 at 09:32, the day's third trade. See the note below for effects on the high movement and spread.

    Today's volume was again below all the averages, in thousands, of 14.46, 17.40, 14.10 and 10.84 for the 10, 25, 50 and 100-day averages respectively. And VWAP was down again: -01.57%, -2.55% and -2.91% on prior days.

    The larger bids again started weakly today, relative to past profiles seen. At 9:31 we had only 1.4K @ $2.50 from ETRF, 1K @ $2.70 from CDEL and 900 @ $3.09 from ATDF. At 9:58 ATDF bid 3.25K @ $3.01. NITE added a 2K @ $3.02 bid at 11:21. If pricing had been stronger this wouldn't have been too bad.

    The larger offers were weaker than seen recently but it was made up for by enthusiastic jostling to offer the lowest price. The early offers all began in the $3.2x area but NITE and ATDF had another battle to see who could get low enough to sell first (952 and 500 @ $3.25 from NITE and ATDF, 1.9K @ $3.23 from NITE, $3.22 from ATDF, ... ending the run with a day's low of $3.08 x 1K from NITE at 9:58).

    There appears to be little abatement of the desire to sell if these two market makers' behavior is representative of the larger sentiment. I think it is as we also have a string of lower volumes and VWAPs, suggesting the buyers are not in a hurry to step up and take shares.

    My newer inflection point calculations continued all periods weakening for the third consecutive day.

    I had said a couple days back the original inflection point calculations, which had begun to break down, would join the newer calculations. We have now gone from yesterday's three very slightly improved, two weakening and one “flat” to all but the 200-day period reducing strengthening or increasing weakening.

    The buy and short sales percentages' directional correlation, which had held for six consecutive days, broke today. Since volume has been dropping ...

    Regardless, today's low, high, VWAP, trade volume, and daily short sales moved -19.09%, 1.21%, -02.55%, -56.58% and -93.55% respectively. Price spread today was 34.00% vs. 7.12%, 21.09, 31.02%, 55.47%, 4.58%, 2.39%, 8.77%, 3.33% and 2.27% on prior days.

    The larger trades (>= 500) occurred on 5 of the 29 trades, 17.24%. These 3,353 shares were 48.68% of day's volume, and traded at a VWAP of $3.0649. 2 of the ...

    The other 24 trades, 82.76% of the day's trades, traded 3,535 shares, 51.32% of the days volume. The VWAP was $3.1011. 12 trades ...

    That's good to hear Albert. Glad that things are apparently going to work out with minimal risk and destruction.

    Rick: If correct, then I see this as a misapplication of the PbC as it's strength lies in DCA and long life under rapid charge and discharge applications.

    From past comments by JP about the "pile of slag", I just assumed that regenerative breaking must be involved because certainly they could control just the discharge rate on those AGMs to prevent overheating the batteries?

    I know from past comments that we can't recapture near as much as an OTR might, but if we can recover any reasonable amount of the energy expended getting the string of cars moving, maybe 70% give or take, ISTM regen is worthwhile to limit the number of times and amount of time needed to go off and recharge.

    Admittedly I'm not schooled in these things, but sometimes big gains are available from "less than perfect", no?

    R.A: Keep in mind that the batteries are supposed to be recharged through regenerative braking *and* the last discussions we heard and photos we saw depicted a component that limited the current flow to 200 amps because it couldn't handle more.

    There is a possibility that the regen is not occurring at the rate they anticipated and they need to up-size that component?

    Don't know, will never know ...

    Early after initial assembly, it wouldn't be surprising. Something as simple as poor connections somewhere wouldn't be unusual. Also, testing regime could have a limited initial run followed by examination of collected data, etc.

    10/15/2014: EOD stuff partially copied from blog (up now).
    # Trds: 30, MinTrSz: 1, MaxTrSz: 900, Vol: 4636, AvTrSz: 155
    Min. Pr: 2.5000, Max Pr: 3.3500, VW Avg. Tr. Pr: 3.1327
    # Buys, Shares: 8 1071, VW Avg Buy Pr: 3.1618
    # Sells, Shares: 22 3565, VW Avg Sell Pr: 3.1239
    # Unkn, Shares: 0 0, VW Avg Unk. Pr: 0.0000
    Buy:Sell 1:3.33 (23.10% "buys"), DlyShts 260 (05.61%), Dly Sht % of 'sells' 7.29%

    Today's low was set by a single 100 share sell for $2.50 at the open. If not for this trade our low would have been $3.10, our low movement would have been +0.32% instead of -19.09% and our spread would be 8.06% rather than the 34.00% we see.

    Today's volume was again below all the averages, in thousands, of 14.37, 17.35, 14.01 and 10.82 for the 10, 25, 50 and 100-day averages respectively. VWAP down -2.55% (yesterday was down -2.91%) confirms, I guess, the old “low volume, higher VWAPs” is broken.

    The larger bids started weakly today, relative to past profiles seen, with only a $2.50 x 1.4K from ETRF and a 900 share $3.09 bid from ATDF seen near the open, at 9:32. At 10:21 NITE had a $3.13 x2.5K bid, but it hung around only ~25 minutes. At 13:25 ATDF had a $3.10 x 2K bid appear.

    The larger offers began with a NITE 2K and ATDF 500 share $3.34 offer, 10:45 saw a 2.5K $3.32 from an MM I didn't catch, NITE popped in a 1.3K offer for $3.32 at 9:47 and a 2K $3.19 at 12:20. After that it looked like some of the larger offers were moved around, but I couldn't recognize any new ones.

    The rest of the usual is in the blog here.
