Daytraders have found something more interesting and volatile. With OVTI's shares outstanding and market cap it's volume should be much lower than even this. Let them leave. No price swings on low volume and steady increases on rising volume would be a very healthy sign. Up to the high 15's on volume of around 5 mil later this week would be a good sign.
Election is in a couple of weeks. Unless there is a significant change in the candidates' status, then people will largely retain their current investment portfolio. A Kerry Presidency requires an entirely different portfolio than a Bush Presidency. People are in a "wait-and-see" mode until 03-Nov.
