It's the MM's (market makers) job to keep the stock moving until there are no buyers or sellers. MM's will buy & sell stock to each other until it goes flat. then it will go down slowly unless good or bad news.
ez, last pump and dump went like this, fast run up....then big decline then slow bleeding all the way down to .80! The MMs trade it up and down a nickle day to steal money and it always closes down for the day. If I am correct we will see Affy go up a little in the first half of the day but then always close flat to lower, this is the new pattern until real news.
You're right, Bill, but today has actually been a little more interesting than the usual gap down and flat trade. I wouldn't be surprised to see the MM's move it around .20 before eod. No pos now, but looking. Couldn't get any shares to short at 1.50.
