BUYINS.NET / www.buyins.net, announced today its proprietary Market Maker Friction Factor Report for Tuesday. 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 Tuesday there were 3961 companies with "abnormal" market making, 2118 companies with positive Friction Factors and 3315 companies with negative Friction Factors. Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Tuesday 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. Titan Pharmaceuticals Inc (OTC:TTNP), Memsic Inc (NASDAQ:MEMS), ECA MARCELLUS TRUST I (NYSE:ECT), GMX Resources Inc (NYSE:GMXR), Mer Telemanagement Solutions Ltd (NASDAQ:MTSL), PHARMA-BIO SERV INC (OTC:PBSV).

Symbol Change Percent Buy Volume Buy %% Sell Volume Sell %% Net Volume Friction
TTNP $-0.850 -41.67% 3,104,500 40.69% 3,643,953 47.76% -539,453 -6,347

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 TTNP with a dollar loss Tuesday of $-0.85000 and a Friction Factor of -6,347 shares. That means that it only took 6,347 more shares of selling than buying to move TTNP 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.
