    Beware of using stop losses

    The shorts or MMs manipulated the PPS earlier today with an immediate drop from 1.26 to 1.20 without apparent reason other than their greed at shareholders' expense, profiting on a short sell followed by a a long buy. This type of manipulation is occurring too frequently, especially on low priced stocks. Don't fall into the spider's web!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Take a look the explosion in trading volumes this issue has experienced this year vis a vis years past. It's almost hard to imagine given the steadily declining share count from the buybacks. It seems as though volumes have increased by a factor of 4 in just a year's time. I heard recently that 80% of US market activity is now represented by HFT (high frequency trading) which in my opinion represents a loss in price discovery and a disconnect from actual fair valuations.
