    Do you have any opinions on the announcement today from NBS?

    I agree the MM's pushed this down each time to .68 today. However, the IBB gapped up this morning at the very moment ONCS was -10%. IBB also closed -.04% vs. -12.16% for ONCS.

    Is it possible on a day the biotech sector ended flat essentially and ONCS dove over 12%, that there is another explanation staring us in the face from biotech press releases?

    I own oncosec, but an open and honest discussion is beneficial to all.

    Why the harsh drop?

    As an amateur investor this is my best guess.

    The market makers used this as an excuse to short down to -10% in pre-market. I believe 10% is the most you can take a stock down in one day by selling shorts by law.

    The stop limit buys pushed it back up to .74 immediately at which point the MM's shorted it back down to .68 (-10%). The downward momentum falls off drastically at .68 which indicates to me that traders do not agree with the market maker's bluff. At midday, the equilibrium price is at .68 further reinforcing my supposition that this is all MM's doing using the NBS excuse - not the market.

    Without the market maker's pushing this down as far as the law will allow, the pps likely would still be around .75.

    If you research stem cells, you will find that many industry pros who have been involved for over a decade predict we are another decade from using them. NBS has been hovering at +2% today...not exactly the response expected from a company supposedly entering phase 3 melanoma with fastrack and breakthrough therapy.

    Apparently, stem cell and NBS investors understand some of the points you made.

    Incidentally, electroporation was first discovered in 1965.

    It appears we have a contender who is racing us to the finish line. I am not convinced that NBS can beat ONCS to market after ONCS acquires a major pharma partner who has FDA clout and experience.

    I would again point to #3 and type it in google and hit enter.

    The sell off prior to today in my opinion can be attributed to #1 and #2.

    However, today's sell off is due to #3 combined with Market Maker action. There does not appear to be very strong downward momentum beyond .68 which is where I understand the MM's by law cannot short past today.

    It seems extremely clear to me the reasons are obvious and mentioned already in more than one thread today on this very board.

    Google:

    1. Momentum stocks hit hard.
    2. Stock market correction.
    3. NBS melanoma.

    I believe the market makers are helping the action today as evidenced by their takedown to -10% pre-market this morning which I understand is as far as they can take it down in one day by law using shorts.

    What is going on 0.68?

    NBS (neostem) acquired a company with fastrack and breakthrough therapy designation and will attempt a phase 3 for a melanoma product using stem cells.

    In addition, I believe the MM's are attempting a takedown based on this news. They naked shorted the stock past 10% this morning and it rebounded immediately only to .74 only to be taken down once again.

    Some people who believe NBS will beat ONCS and their TBA partner to market may have sold.

    As an interesting note, I have read in the past the stem cells are for real, but it is a technology whose time has not come and will not be here for many more years.

    .....maybe like electroporation in 1965.

  • I have no where near as many shares as I had originally. I made a big mistake and have been regretting it for months.

    After that mistake I sold again underestimating ONCS's powerful momentum only to have to buy back in higher once again. I am a walking catastrophe and have many regrets.

    The PPS has been knocking on .90 for the last couple of weeks just as it once did on .30 for a few months.

    It's going to blow through it soon and when it does you may be inclined to take profits.

    I could have been sitting on 338% gains before the morning bell today.............If I had not sold.

    Where is the adult message board for this stock?

    I don't understand what you mean by "adult" I think wild dreams do come true and most posts are valid and mature. Take the below post for example:

    This track record is unbelievable. Both times delivering as if bought from the Sears Roebuck Catalog. One call up to the hour and one early by a day, spewing out bounty as if out of a cornucopia.

    Did you load up in time?

    Chart looks great.

    We are pleased to announce another phenomenal pattern is forming. Since the last alert on 9/29 we have witnessed greater excitement and imminent data releases coalescing in a vortex, reacting violently like tectonic plates thrust through crust, forming steppes like central Asia.

    Now we see 3 stair steps to wealth have formed since the low of 9/30. Each step low being higher than the last. The price is bouncing off the compressing SMA's , the volume has been quietening, the air is still, the coil is coiling and will soon spring forth like a viper biting bashers.

    The time again is now. The kid with the boll weevil internet says buy. Do not let a Tuesday morning announcement catch you empty handed. Even geron marks these words.

    Breakout imminent
