    Overwhelming volume

    How do they do it with 100 share trades????

    • What I can't believe is how many potential buyers will wait for the crowd to pile in to actually commit. This indicates one of two things: Either 1: they do not understand the fundamentals and have not done their DD, or are not convinced of significant future price appreciation, or 2: they like the prospects and want to buy, but are betting they can buy at lower prices before potentially positive news is announced. Judging from the stingy willingness of sellers to offer 100 share lots at ever lower prices, it gives the impression that cheaper shares are readily available, when in actuality, these are poseurs, risking little to paint a picture in the absence of new news that could create a crescendo of demand. It's like the inflation/deflation mindset. If there's inflation, BUY NOW before prices go higher. If it's deflation, BUY LATER after prices go lower. If you think 100 share trades foretell the future while everyone is sitting on the sidelines, then you will be blindsided.
