Over the past week AWX has squeezed up from $2 to $18 without any news catalyst. This is nothing new right? We see manipulation all the time with penny stocks. But what really makes this manipulation unique is that it's being done by a brokerage firm. Mintbroker International released an SEC filing that they purchased over 1.9 million shares of AWX. Mintbrokers International owns Suretrader. I've heard that Suretrader has had borrows available all week on AWX. They're essentially creating a huge short squeeze and screwing over their own clients. I don't see how it's legal for a brokerage firm to do this. They have access to info the general public doesn't have access to. You wouldn't think they would be able to create blatant manipulation like this. It will be interesting to see if this ends up halted like LFIN. I'm glad now that I've never used Suretrader. They seem extremely shady.
