[11:23] {Threei} IFON tries to tuirn into momo runner...
[11:26] {Threei} holding well so far
[11:26] {Threei} 2.20 break should be a launching pad
[11:26] {Threei} realize the risk
[11:27] {Threei} alternative way to try it - break of that big offer at .15
[11:27] {Threei} if it's taken out, .20 shouldn't hold
[11:28] {nemo} kinda' stands out, doesn't it...

[11:30] {Threei} they are all there
[11:31] {dino} dllr hl l .25
[11:33] {Threei} one scenario this kind of things spometimes follows:
[11:33] {Threei} stock retreats, huge offer chases it down,
[11:34] {Threei} at some point the price becomes attractive enough for buyers to take it out
[11:34] {Threei} and that become a trigger.
[11:34] {Threei} Stock ususlly comes into level where such offer originally sat,
[11:34] {Threei} pauses for a sec,
[11:34] {Threei} then blows through it as buyers realize it's no longer there
[11:35] {dino} amed 34 trig imo
