(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) 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.

Here is a list of the top companies with the largest percentage loss per share Thursday and low price friction (bearish).

Royale Energy Inc (NASDAQ:ROYL), Synergy Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:SGYP), OCZ Technology Group Inc (NASDAQ:OCZ), China Information Technology Inc (NASDAQ:CNIT), SemiLEDs Corp (NASDAQ:LEDS), (NASDAQ:DRTX).

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 ROYL with a dollar loss Thursday of $-0.39000 and a Friction Factor of -281 shares. That means that it only took 281 more shares of selling than buying to move ROYL 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.
