Axion Power Weighted Moving Average Prices and Volume:

10/19 comment: Not much to say about the graphs this week except:

1. My 10-day average has turned up while the 20-day is flattening nicely.
2. Volume is sky high and we've traded more shares in October than we did in 2010. Unless the PIPErs have been keeping stock on the side for the last few months, there's a good chance that they'll run out within the next few days and give everybody a little breathing room.
3. The FINRA short values seem to be normalizing in the mid-30% range I'd expect with the PIPErs out there hammering stock into the market every day.
