    Buying

    Please see Major Holders Under the message, your buying and selling only has the impact on your research and portfolio.

    When major holders decide to load or unload a few thousand shares of this stock, the volatility increases.

    This stock should only be bought for long-term with research. As of now there are more sellers than buyer, and stock is under performing.

    Last few minutes low volume up or down has no significance.

    Pew need to see daily volume and price increase for at least three days, to say the trend may have changed.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice

    Aug 26, 2014 around 10:10 am there is a conference and you can call and ask a question. It will be very helpful. Also MM do not sit around watching SMCI stock, they have more than 20 stocks to worry about. But knowing if a institution is willing to buy or sell, they can work to increase or reduce the inventory. After the earning we all expected SMCI to explode, but someone decided to sell when there was demand.

    Will the same group buy or sell at lower price, I leave up to you to figure out.

    Very busy trading.

    Sincerely,

    After the close put a sell order for 500 shares 25 cents to 50 cents higher. MM is not willing to buy or sell for one hour, why will he or she change their mind. It is computer balancing act between buy and sell. A few times I was able to sell SMCI more than $1.25 higher for 1500 shares, I was thinking of just 25 cents, but made a mistake, but someone else also made the mistake. Next day stock opened 12 cents lower on 1800 shares.

    MM will bring the price higher or lower where there some buyer or sellers. He can give you from inventory like today 2500 shares around 25.16. But then stock went down to fill his inventory,

    There is very low volume and it is difficult to make market. I doubt if it can be manuplted. If you wish to buy 5,000 shares the computer doesn't, know the Oder is from USA or China or Italy. I have often traded buying stock 1000 shares, when it is down more than 50 cents by 3:00pm. Seeing the trend many a times I am out selling, a few times after hours I have my Oder executed for more than 25 cents after the close. Also next morning pre market I have bids for 1000 shares more than 45cents below closing. Many a times I get a few hundred chaper.

    I have also got sometime only 25 shares more than 60 cents cheaper.

    Until we get more than 400,000 shares traded daily, it not worth my time to guess who is doing what.

    Someone told me a few days that Google will be providing cloud storage space so cheap that there will be less demand for servers.

    Good luck!

  • How can you invest short term?

    Long-term I am not sure, are you, if so why?

    Small invest less than 1000 is ok if you can hold and afford to lose.

    Please see ABB on YouTube, the company has done nothing, so far except today’s volume is higher.

    ABB is not a recommendation simply technically; a stock move up on higher volume is bullish.

    Good Luck!

    ABB Ltd. (ABBN) said a power-cable technology that allows offshore wind farms to transmit more than twice the energy of current set-ups will boost orders at the company’s power systems division in coming years.

  • PLEAS LOOK AT THE CLOSING VOLUME AND PRCIE

    ABB Ltd. (ABBN) said a power-cable technology that allows offshore wind farms to transmit more than twice the energy of current set-ups will boost orders at the company’s power systems division in coming years.

    “It’s on the list of ABB’s most important breakthroughs in the last five years,” Chief Technology Officer Claes Rytoft said in an interview, adding that rival technologies are at least some years behind. “We know about projects that have not moved forward because they are missing this.”

    The technology will spur the construction of even bigger offshore wind farms by doubling the power capacity of cable connections to about 2,600 megawatts from 1,000 megawatts today, making it the most powerful subsea connection system in the world, Rytoft said. It includes high-voltage power cables, joints and terminations.

    A steady stream of cable orders may help Chief Executive Officer Ulrich Spiesshofer to strengthen the Power Systems unit, which has been grappling with delays to complex renewable energy projects. Charges at the business, which manages big-ticket projects such as offshore wind park connections, have weighed on the company’s earnings and Spiesshofer has pledged to return the division to profitability.

  • Please look into DIS, TRN, ABB, ST or GLD stocks which are leading this up move.

    Disney seems the best for long term.

    Please do your own research, I can be wrong also.

    Good luck!

    There are no bids, it is all big institutions. There are less than 100 individual stockholders. Someone bought very cheap and is bailing out, but no bids, I do not see 1000 bid or even 500.

    I will wait for doing anything. Only thing Volume is heavy since yesterday, which means it is more than traders.

    Sincerely.

    Please do not do anything, there is something we do not know. It could be the Cloud service offered by big companies. I have done lot of research but feel someone is smarter than me.

    It is going down for no reason, what is behind it?

    You be the judge.

    Weekly----------Volume----------High ----------Low
    4-Aug ----------6,600---------- 26.98---------- 23.35
    11-Aug----------3,171 ----------25.87 ----------24.12
    18-Aug----------3,902 ----------26.05 ----------25.26 …..waiting

    We have good volume today and there are bid and offers of more than 500, which is a very good sign.

    Time to watch and buy if you are a TRADER it is still in trading range, and I am not sure if it is accumulation. Every up move meets good supply and I am not sure who is feeding?

    25.91….25.55…..25.77…Volume 75,000 Has good volatility

    Good luck!

    First half hour volume 400,000 daily average for past 10 days is one million.

    Time to sit and watch, if we are close to bottom. Volume leads stocks move.

    There is hardly any volume so far, around 11:00am – 11.25am stock slowly was brought to 25.64 bid and then 25.61…25.62…then 25.63 fro a few minutes no trade Then 100 shares back to 25.70. Now for last 45 minutes it trading in a line with no buyers and no sellers, every now and the 100 shares with a few cents up and own.

    25.64……26.05…25.76 last …volume 76,165 Time noon.

    Let us see how it end up from here, we need more than 400,000 volume and price up 50 cents, so say it is out of trading range.

    Can we get 15 minutes with 10,000 to 20,000 traded?

    100 bids and 100 offers at 5 cents higher can’t go on very long. Unless someone supplying stock here knows more than us.

    Big players are out and small are not in; it is someone playing with a friendly group with agreed price.

    I still think it is test and should breakout to the upside after lot of frustration of the traders.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,
