Ain't it funny -- NOT!
The chart, interactive, for today shows all of three trades. The first was for 8,900 @1.337/share. The second trade was for an odd-lot (less than 100 shares) for $1.2215/share and the third was for, get this ONE SHARE! @ $1.35 which didn't even register as traded for the daily close.
And they call the U.S. Markets honest!
In that last ten minutes, three trades were listed: 56,020, 7,300 and 73,530. That first one had an opening price that went from $1.33 to $1.40 in the same group listed time-wise, the next one had an open of $1.75 and finished at $1.76, and the final one traded all those shares at $1.80.
I smell a temporary short squeeze that triggered someone's momentum buy.
