    I was wondering who that was. I just started using it too, mainly using it for my love of baseball, but putting some stock tweets into it too.

    Great summary and analysis. Thank you for taking the time to write this up. I have read it twice already and I'm sure I'll be reading it a few more times tonight before I hit the sack.

    Ouch 2 thumbs downs already....your first made a positive post....don't do that it's frowned upon in this establishment! LOL

  • This is how we know. First of all, 2,600 of those contracts were traded at the same time. (My platform shoes me each purchase, price, time. So it was one trader. Secondly the Bid was 5 cents, ask was 20 cents I believe (If memory serves me correct) If a retail trader sold a contract, they must sell it at the bid or close to the bid *Market maker picks this up* If a retail trade buys an option contract, he must buy at the ask or close to the ask *again market maker picks this up*. The contracts were purchased for 20 cents. So it was a market maker selling to a retail investor. You do realize market makers are paid to provide liquidity and all option buying and selling go through them first. A retail investor will never sell an option contract to another retail investor. It always goes through a market maker.

    At any rate, they were purchased for 20 cents. Thus a retailer picked them up rather then selling them.

    All I will say is learn how to look at technicals.... review all technicals for IDRA over the past 2 years. You'll see it trades based on technicals to a T. The last 4 months we have a flag forming from $4.5 high to $2.5 base. The up and down trading daily is simply the stock following the technicals and being traded as such. (Low volume, the majority of trading has been via proprietary trading software to make a quick buck since IDRA is a "Technical master piece" meaning it always followed technicals so a technical trading platform can make easy very low risk return.

    The last few months of trading has meant nothing... Just following technicals. The flag ends August 8th, but I imagine it will break out by August 1st.
    There are many other indicators that support the fact we'll break out and up from this flag vs not but I am to lazy to get into it. Do your own research.

    You'll soon realize we are about to move regardless of news. News will just add an extra pump for us.

    No, I am neither. I am a long term investor that started buying 10 months ago in October 2013. I just think it's managements job as a small cap bio to get their science to market to help people in need of the medicine, not to appease short term investors or traders looking for quick profit. I've done my DD and am very happy with the progress of the company, not frustrated at all, and I'm only sitting up 10% in the past year on my overall share average. Until I see James Geraghty sell a share I'm not worried or frustrated about a thing.

    As a long term investor I am just fine with the communication and progress this company has made over the past year. I don't see anything wrong with how they have handled their business, science, technology, etc... since last July.

    I'm with you on the bounce off of $2.44 (double bottom looks good at this point), but being "hopeful" for $4 by the end of the year is pretty low IMO. As some posters have pointed out today insiders themselves are shareholders and some are major shareholders so they are definitely looking out for the value of the stock. Just b/c these results didn't come out at the end of June isn't a bad thing. Especially with the way bio has been crushed again this month. I think we see a nice bounce coming soon once the YOY % gains continues to come down, the double bottom completes, and the craziness around the world settles down a bit.

    Maybe the best technical post I've ever read on this board and I've been on here for 10 months. Very educational and great information. Thanks!

    Those dreamers who still believe $20 within 2 years.

    Thanks for the name calling, very much expected. Stock is acting very badly? Okay point taken so is the whole sector for that matter, and pretty much the whole market. Do you have no comment on their technology, science, ISIS, MC value, clinical trials ongoing, etc..? Another words anything productive to add to the conversation other than this company sucks, I suck, market is crooked, company is crooked, and I hate life...

    Okay I've been a smart ### to a few people in here all day simply b/c I am tired of hearing all of the complaining. It's like this, if you hate the company so much and don't believe in it then why waste your time holding the stock and being a grouch everyday. Doesn't make any sense to me. Just sell, take the loss and move on to one that you firmly believe in. In reality if you have nothing but negative things to say about the company each and every day you don't need to be holding shares of the company.

    As for your point you can't really be serious about never seeing $3 again....right? As for $20 in 2 years, your darn right it's going to be at atleast $20 in July 2016. I try to put it as simply as I can weekly it seems like. ISIS is a $3.3 billion company off of our second generation technology, which we developed and are the founding fathers of. We posess the 3rd generation improved anti sense which will start clinical trials early next year along with our TLR technology which we have 5 clinical trials running on. If you really believe what you wrote about never seeing $3 again, you need to sell.

    If you are just venting b/c all bio's are getting crushed, then vent, but don't put up garbage about the stock never seeing $3 again. We are a $200 million company, ISIS a $3.3 billion company. Period!
