The bid and ask prices are being artificially held at a wide spread. I have been trying for over a half hour to place a 200,000 buy order in at .143 and the order never showed up. The bid price never changes and stays at .142 so that other investors cant see what is the actual bid price is. If no one knows what the actual bid price is how is anyone suppose to trade here. I keep saying it, the market maker is artificially holding this stock price down and will not even show a major purchase at a higher bid. I have actually watched trades go down at less than I was willing to buy for much after I placed the order to buy at a higher price. This sucks.
Update while I was typing this. My bid finally showed up, unbelievable, it only took a half hour for the mm to show someone willing to pay a higher price than .142
