    Market makers

    Just to shed a little may be the
    market makers driving the stock down ... before the
    report ... and they will accumulate and push it up again
    after some good news ... ive read their annual and
    looked at their financial statements ... this company
    should suprise the street than again there really is no
    street as no one is following ... i am very tempted to
    buy now at around 3 but i dont like the stagnant
    price movement let me see how the price reacts after
    the earnings report which i think will be in about 2
    weeks ... for all of you good luck and hope someone
    trips over this baby. QB

    • they do it is by selling to each other: buying at
      ask price to raise, and selling at the bid price to
      lower the price. If they trade back and forth at the
      manipulated prices they can quickly force everybody to accept
      their fate. But, how can they keep everybody else from
      jumping in? Can MMs buy/sell behind the scenes?
