Axion Power Weighted Moving Average Prices and Volume:

(updated through 07/27/2013)

"While it's too early to be of much predictive value, my 10-day VWMA moved sharply up through the 20-day VWMA on Tuesday of last week and the developing pattern is very pretty from a momentum perspective".

7.27.13 AXPW Price

The volume graph is fascinating because we're within spitting distance of the all time high for 10-day volume.

[From JP's Finra shorts comments] Unless volume plummets over the next three days, I'm expecting a total volume of more than 15 million shares for the month. It's a lot of selling, but its also a lot of buying and I don't think the buyers are timid or weak.

Axion Power Market Cap, Share Count and 200-day Volume:

(as of 7/20/2013)

Since we're close to the end of the month I'm sending the FINRA short graph instead of the market cap graph.

7.20.13 AXPW Mkt Cap


The FINRA short tracking graph is beginning to look like it may be a reasonable proxy for selling by the PIPErs. It was an extremely useful tool for tracking the big uglies a couple years ago and so far it seems to be providing the same type of information. If the data does in fact track the PIPErs activity, the lines would suggest that they pounded hard in May to set up a fear dynamic, eased up a bit in June once the angst was established and eased up again in July as the angst gained momentum and the stock price stabilized. With three days left to go in the month, July is already the all-time volume leader by about 400,000 shares. Unless volume plummets over the next three days, I'm expecting a total volume of more than 15 million shares for the month. It's a lot of selling, but its also a lot of buying and I don't think the buyers are timid or weak.
