The shares are certainly too thinly traded here in the USA. This results in the bid-ask spread being too wide. Like the above poster says, the offer to sell shares (the ask price) is pushed up all the time giving the illusion of upward buying pressure. This is a false illusion as is seen by the very low offer to buy (bid) price. So if you put in a market order you will get the much higher ask price and then it will have to move up quite a bit for the bid price to move up above your purchase price. These shares should only be bought with a limit order say at least 10%-15% below the current ask price. Then only sell with a limit order somewhat above the ask price.
