BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Friday.

On Friday there were 4010 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2656 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2809 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage gain per share Friday and low price friction (bullish).

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 OTT with a dollar gain Friday of $0.26000 and a Friction Factor of 2,332 shares. That means that it only took 2,332 more shares of buying than selling to move OTT 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.
