(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Friday. 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 Friday there were 3553 companies with "abnormal" market making, 1727 companies with positive Friction Factors and 4217 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the highest net buy volume on Friday and lowest price Friction (bullish). This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices rose faster with less Friction. ADVANCED SEMICONDUCTOR E-ADR (NYSE:ASX), TAIWAN SEMICONDUCTOR-SP ADR (NYSE:TSM), ARCTIC GLACIER INCOME FD-UT (OTC:AGUNF), Atrinsic Inc (OTC:ATRN), WESTERN FAMILY RESTA (OTC:WFAM), Sealy Corp Inc (NYSE:ZZ).

Market Maker Friction Factor is shown in the chart below:
Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
ASX $0.100 2.04% 792,526 62.09% 162,351 12.72% 630,175 63,018
TSM $0.180 1.21% 3,384,429 36.36% 2,678,906 28.78% 705,523 39,196
AGUNF $0.011 14.74% 1,570,700 62.04% 961,250 37.96% 609,450 544,152
ATRN $0.020 23.81% 2,302,782 58.12% 1,654,598 41.76% 648,184 324,092
WFAM $0.085 54.84% 1,590,018 63.14% 928,311 36.86% 661,707 77,848
ZZ $0.070 3.29% 1,034,557 77.59% 143,231 10.74% 891,326 127,332
Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net dollar gains (Change) and very 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 ASX with a Net Buy Volume of 630,175 shares and a Friction Factor of 63,018 shares. That means that it takes 63,018 more shares of buying than selling to move ASX higher by one penny. This means the Market Makers are allowing the stock to move up higher as of Friday (lower friction). And with one of the highest Net Buy Volumes, the combination of low friction and high net buy volume is bullish.
