My Fidelity shows ASK 1.98, Bid 1.96 but traded at 1.88 from 16:33:13 to 16:36: 47 It isstrange,
Looks like somebody is doing somebody a favor by selling/buying at 1.88..
Maybe I should place an order for 1.88 and sneak in after market trade..

Thanks for the history lesson xof66e
Hydrogen power: Still a gas after all these years
There must have been news conferences, press releases and lengthy stories, but I missed them. It came as a quiet surprise to stumble across GM’s website talking about a fleet of 100 hydrogen fuel-cell cars, on the road now.
Chevy has launched a test fleet of hydrogen-powered fuel cell Equinox SUVs. This fleet hit the streets of New York City, Washington, D.C., and Southern California.
“Project Driveway” is the first large-scale market test of fuel cell vehicles with real drivers in the real world. Why? Because hydrogen fuel cells use zero gasoline and produce zero emissions. They’re a sustainable technology for a better environment. And they ultimately reduce our dependence on petroleum. Equinox Fuel Cell is an electric vehicle powered by the GM fourth-generation fuel cell system, our most advanced fuel cell propulsion system to date. The electric motor traction system will provide the vehicle with instantaneous torque, smooth acceleration, and quiet performance.
The Equinox Fuel Cell will go nearly 150 miles per fill-up, and reach a top speed of 100 mph. Green Car Journal has given the Chevy Equinox Fuel Cell its Green Car Vision Award. The Equinox Fuel Cell won the award over several nominees, including the Honda FCX Clarity and Toyota Prius Plug-In.
If you live in one of those cities, you may be eligible to test drive one of the vehicles. Were I there, my application to try one would have been in before I started this piece.
It took 20 years longer than it should have to get hybrid fueled vehicles on the road; hydrogen power lags at least as far back. To those of us who long ago gave up hoping the Detroit Big 3 might see the light on hydrogen in any form, the news GM has a fleet of fuel-cells in pre-Beta testing is most interesting. We remember GM’s last foray into electric cars. Hopes do not rise, at least not great hopes, and not high.
It’s been 31 years since Roger Billings drove a hydrogen-powered internal combustion car in Jimmy Carter’s inaugural parade. Hope abides, but not forever. Feathers cannot sustain hope that long, Emily.
Forgot to tell you that the pdf file is 23 pages long. Only for those who can Read and understand the eloquence of Engineering for the future. LOL
In his 2003 State of the Union Address, President Bush announced a $1.2 billion
Hydrogen Fuel Initiative to accelerate the development of the hydrogen and fuel cell
technologies needed to move the United States toward a future hydrogen economy. While
many scientific, technical, and institutional challenges must be overcome to realize the
vision of a hydrogen energy economy, moving from today’s laboratory-scale fabrication
technologies to high-volume commercial manufacturing has been identified as one
potential roadblock to a future hydrogen economy.

and then short this baby PLUG
I am buying again at 1.71, 1.61, 1.51,...
-PLUG140621C5 bot at .20 what do you guys think about PLUG in June 2015 ?
I am betting June 5 calls will be worth a lot. We will get there.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The Fake Interpreter have done this kind of contract job before Obama. He is not paid by US Govt!
bot at 1.71, sold at 1.93 after seeing resistance at 1.93 and bot and sold Oracle and I am back in PLUG again at 1.87/1.88. Looking at ATML bottoming..
I have bot quite a few calls and in the money.. This is my day trading money. Bot ORCL at todays bottom of 33.29 . will flip and come back when and if PLUG gets taken down. MY Roth has enough . not selling that.
These advantages explain why nearly all major automobile companies dropped their pure battery electric vehicle developments in the 1990’s and devoted most of their efforts to the fuel cell EV. While the car companies are now considering plugin hybrids that do not require as overwhelming battery requirements as the allelectric EV, and while some car companies are developing short range city cars for niche markets, the underlying benefits of the fuel cell have not changed. We fully expect that the fuel cell EV will eventually dominate the transportation market.
google a research report put out in 2012. excellent article..
" Fuel Cell and Battery Electric Vehicles Compared " by C. E. (Sandy) Thomas, Ph.D., President, H2Gen Innovations, Inc.
It makes a great a great comparison study. You may not have to be an Engineer to appreciate it. But as an Engineer, the ROI due to weight consideration alone makes sense.
Have fun trading. Now thanks to all those shorting. I am bottom fishing.. LOL
which I bought at 1.71 ... not bad for a few days of day trading work. Now have to wait for the bottom again..
may not have it...
