More signs of Speculation

I am working on a column on Stock Tips, and in my research I came across this unbelievable chart. Its from Jason Goepfert of

Jason had done some prior studies on the Bulletin Board volume. He wrote back "It’s even more crazy than last month – share volume expanded by nearly 40% over the previous record, set in February. I’ve attached the chart."





That is some spike relative to the prior volume — it looks similar to January 2000.

Good thing there is not any speculation around . . .
