Dec 19, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Tuesday. Since October 2008 market makers are now required to be on the bid as much as they are on the offer and for like amounts of stock. This Fair Market Making Requirement is designed to prevent market makers from manipulating stock prices. On Tuesday there were 3909 companies with "abnormal" market making, 3872 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2053 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage gain per share Tuesday and low price friction (bullish). This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices rose faster with less Friction. BOS Better On-Line Solutions Ltd (NASDAQ:BOSC), Selectica Inc (NASDAQ:SLTC), Arbitron Inc (NYSE:ARB), Wireless Ronin Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:RNIN), Opexa Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:OPXA), DRAGONWAVE INC (NASDAQ:DRWI).

BOSC $1.290 36.86% 328,298 52.39% 296,496 47.32% 31,802 247

Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net buy volumes (buy volume, sell volume) and low price friction in their stocks. The Friction Factor displays how many more shares of buying than selling are required to move a stock higher by one cent or how many more shares of selling than buying moves a stock lower by 1 cent.
For example, the chart above shows BOSC with a dollar gain Tuesday of $1.29000 and a Friction Factor of 247 shares. That means that it only took 247 more shares of buying than selling to move BOSC higher by one penny. The Market Makers are currently allowing the stock to rise quickly (low friction). The combination of low friction and positive market direction can drive prices higher much faster than normal.
