Axion Power Weighted Moving Average Prices and Volume:

3/27/2014 Comments from JP about the volume chart
Historically the 10- and 50-day volumes traded in a band above and below the 200-day MAV but since June of last year the 200-day average was an absolute barrier. This week's plunge below the 200-day level is one more compelling bit of evidence that the PIPErs have left the building and we're seeing more normal trading activity.

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

5/18/2014 JP comments
This week I did something unusual with the Market Capitalization graph and took it all the way back to inception. I then added colored blocks to highlight what I see as three discrete stages in Axion's development when it either had nothing to sell to customers, or only had pre-commercial prototypes. For the first six years the market cap exhibited a spiky but recognizable up-trend. Since 2009, the period when the greatest commercial value has been added to the PbC, the trend has been all downhill as trading volume exploded from stockholders behaving badly and shoveling more stock into the market than the market could possibly digest.

4/19/2014 JP comments
The only change worth noting is that I increased my estimate of the fully diluted share count from 215 million to 225 million for the Market Capitalization graph. This adjustment ties back to the inaccurate acceleration assumptions I referred to in my comment that explained my error and apologized to D-Inv.
