I had TAON.PK ON MY WATCH LIST. Actually, my wife brought it to my attention.
She watches the most active volume stocks on pinksheets.com and noticed the volume picking up. That is where she gets her picks from.For quick day trades. I have not done any DD on TAON.pk yet. Other than it is a commodity stock type of mineral and we are supposed to be in a commodity bubble.
The spread is supply and demand and since it is NOW all done by computer match ups (no middle men aka market makers) kind of hard to manipulate. The market makers of the past are mostly GONE. Orders in, computer matches up the mates, orders out. All controlled by computers NOW.
The names on level II are the companies that agree to run your orders thru their computers.
