Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage gain per share Wednesday 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 MTSN with a dollar gain Wednesday of $0.18000 and a Friction Factor of 4,825 shares. That means that it only took 4,825 more shares of buying than selling to move MTSN 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.
