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

Here is a list of the top companies with Abnormal Price Friction (bearish bias) in their stock prices. This means that there was more buying than selling in the stocks and their stock prices dropped. GILEAD SCIENCES, INC. (NASDAQ:GILD), Micron Technology Inc (NASDAQ:MU), CISCO SYSTEMS INCORPORATED (NASDAQ:CSCO), A.P. Pharma Inc (OTC:APPA), Alcoa Inc (NYSE:AA), Firesteel Resources Inc (NASDAQ:FTR).

Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above had more buying than selling on Monday and their stock prices dropped. 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 GILD with 2,041,766 greater shares of buying than selling (NetVol) and the stock price was down $-0.96000. This means the Market Makers were trading the stock in a way inconsistent with normal supply and demand (Economics 101); more buying than selling should cause prices to rise.
