    • Accumulation coupled with short covering and index movements. This is a low volume stock. Any major short covering and the price spikes. Any major institutional buying/selling and the price spikes one way or the other. For three days they took out the stops. Today they buy at the open and take out any sell orders - then short it back down again. Computers dueling with computers. Ban high speed trading and all of this goes away. Put the original uptick rule and a lot of this goes away. Stick a $.01 per share transaction fee on every share and it all stops almost immediately.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Hmmmm.....perhaps the share price going up and down....OR......down and up?? LOL.....sorry, I couldn't resist. I certainly don't know.....in case you couldn't tell by the first half of my answer.
