“The panoramic glass roof could do with either electrochromatic glass or, failing that, a sliding sun shade, and there’s an odd absence of overhead grab handles, too.”

Kudos to the writer of this article. He actually used the correct term, "electrochromatic", which is what SPD is, rather than electrochromic (Gentex etc). I'm so tired of people using those two terms interchangeably. Anyway, hopefully Polestar will use SPD somewhere down the line.

Tin, might I suggest that instead of just giving us REFR volume/short trade on a one day look, how about including 3 or 4 other microcaps or small caps to compare and see if this short trading is normal or abnormal over a defined time period. Could be an interesting case study.

And Tin, you might only include those that have similar total vol to trade/market cap...

why the huge difference
First table is double counting the 11/8 trading volume shown on the 2nd table. Short volumes still match.

What does that even mean ? why?
And shouldn't that be clearly explained somewhere humanly accessible so people dont feel foolish?
Sorry, all this is beyond me. I own this, for a long time, good or bad.
If it goes to $50 i'm thrilled, if it goes nowhere, then it goes nowhere. Either way, i'm comfortable.

For most NASDAQ stocks, an MM first buy shares from a seller and counts that as one trade. Then the MM sells those shares to a different buyer and counts it as another trade.

This lets an MM collect a fee on both ends of the trade. It also lets NASDAQ brag about having higher volume than the NYSE.

From the numbers you posted, it looks like REFR falls into the double-counted stock category. If so, The fintel.io table shows the actual volume.

Tin,

Don't put all your marbles in to make sense or trying to decipher this kind of accounting. There are double accounting of numbers going on etc...and at first glance it will be all confusing.

Rather focus on our investment as more and more good news are coming out and more to come in the future.
The confusing element of investing must exist to favor those that are "in the know" of such practices, and taking much time to figure it all out will only make you realize that.

Soon, all of that will not even matter for this technology will have been accepted and employed down to the household level.

JMHO.
