The "signals" are such a small amount of shares (worth no more than 5 or 10 dollars) that no trader would have paid a commission that costs more than the amount of shares bought. The "signals" are from one MM to another. * 100 - I need shares. * 200 - I need shares badly,but do not take the stock down. * 300 - Take the price down so I can load shares * 400 - Keep trading it sideways. * 500 - Gap the stock. This gap can be either up or down, depending on the direction of the 500 signal.
