Dont be tempted to jump in and go at market when you think the stock is beginning to run. Like a few hours ago. The manipulator uses that to drain out the bids. The stock has a good base, then the manipulator makes the stock start running, those with bids at the base go at market, once the bids are gone the base is lost and the manipulator lowers the ask with a large quantity causing people to scare and sell. This all leads to a lower price (many times below where it started). If a base builds here and the earnings/losses are at least ok, the stock will go up gradually.
I tried to be the bad guy once and it worked for about half a day only to get burnt. You need a lot of money but its easier in a small stock like CDTI. Small hedge funds don't have to report as much and get away with murder.
