market makers do have unlimited powers with thinly traded stocks such as EDAP. If the street is convinced and decides to roll the dice then MM power is diminished. EDAP is a healthy stock with good numbers but another FDA approval should be the last shot in the arm for a possible breakout. I sold 25% of my holdings in the 4.40 range but kept 75% for the breakout. I will buy if it tests the 2's with a loan from my mom, uncle and credit cards. Hope I don't lose my shirt.
