Dec 21, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Thursday. Since October 2008 market makers are now required to be on the bid as much as they are on the offer and for like amounts of stock. This Fair Market Making Requirement is designed to prevent market makers from manipulating stock prices. On Thursday there were 3965 companies with "abnormal" market making, 3242 companies with positive Friction Factors and 2420 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Thursday and low price friction (bearish). This means that there was more selling than buying in the stocks and their stock prices dropped faster with less Friction. BOS Better On-Line Solutions Ltd (NASDAQ:BOSC), Misonix Inc (NASDAQ:MSON), Uni-Pixel Inc (NASDAQ:UNXL), Amicus Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:FOLD), Stratabound Minerals Corp (NYSE:SB), Kips Bay Medical Inc (NASDAQ:KIPS).

Analysis of the Friction Factor chart above shows that each of the six stocks mentioned above have high net dollar losses (Change) and extremely 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 BOSC with a dollar loss Thursday of $-2.29000 and a Friction Factor of -155 shares. That means that it only took 155 more shares of selling than buying to move BOSC lower by one penny. This means the Market Makers are allowing the stock to drop quickly (low friction). The combination of low friction and negative market direction can drive prices lower faster than normal.
