On Tuesday there were 4162 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2503 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2920 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the highest net sell volume on Tuesday and lowest negative price Friction (bearish).

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 NLY down $-0.22000 with a Friction Factor of -93,337 and a Net Volume of -2,053,412. That means that it takes 93,337 more shares of selling than buying to drop NLY by one penny. On Monday the Market Makers allowed the stock to move down on heavier selling than buying (low negative friction).
