Friction Factor calculates if a fair market is being made in the shares of
AIV. 51% of the previous 37 trading days have been positive or bullish-biased
and 49% 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 or 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.

Market-Making Requirements.
