It's hard to tell if anything is going on behind the scenes.
I was looking at the trading pattern from Jan. 3-5. 12-30-11, Tirex closed at .0005. From 1/3 until the day before the press release on Jan. 6, the closing price rose steadily to .0016 on Jan. 5. Volume also rose substantially to almost 31,000,000 on Jan. 3, tapering off on the 4th and rising on the 5 to about 15,000,000.
It's hard to tell, especially without huge volume accompanying the price rise if someone, somewhere thinks something is ready to pop. Trading had been up to a few 5,000,000-6,000,000 days this week which is an improvement over the week before.
We did get past the 5000 post and things did turn. Let's hope things keep turning up.
