Here is a list of the top companies with the highest net buy volume on Monday and lowest price Friction (bullish).

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 GG with a Net Buy Volume of 938,348 shares and a Friction Factor of 9,383 shares. That means that it takes 9,383 more shares of buying than selling to move GG higher by one penny. This means the Market Makers are allowing the stock to move up higher as of Monday (lower friction). And with one of the highest Net Buy Volumes, the combination of low friction and high net buy volume is bullish.
