Friction Factor calculates if a fair market is being made in the shares of OMAG. 45% of the previous 38 trading days have been positive or bullish-biased and 55% have been negative or bearish-biased.
Regulation SHO requires bona-fide market-making activities to include making purchases and sales in roughly comparable amounts. The Commission has stated that bona-fide market-making DOES NOT include activity that is related to speculative selling strategies for investment purposes of the broker-dealer and is disproportionate to the usual market making patterns or practices of the broker-dealer in that security. Likewise, where a market-maker posts continually at or near the best offer, but does not also post at or near the best bid, the market-maker's activities would not generally qualify as bona-fide market-making. Moreover, a market-maker that continually executes short sales away from its posted quotes would generally not be considered to be engaging in bona-fide market-making.
BUYINS.NET monitors OMAG market-makers daily for compliance with Fair Market-Making Requirements.
