Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have low price friction combined with more selling than buying (negative Net Volume) 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 DELL down $-0.09000 with a Friction Factor of -333,264 and a Net Volume of -2,999,379. That means that it takes 333,264 more shares of selling than buying to drop DELL by one penny. On Monday the Market Makers allowed the stock to move down on heavier selling than buying (low negative friction).
