marketmaker on level II is manipulating up with 2 big bids, then leaving a big gab between 57.69 and NOT SHOWING ANY BIDS til 57.35, he's walking this up I'm sure to near the 60 cals on opex target. amazing legal fraud.
Have you taken a look at the options on COP? Prior to earnings there was a strong bias towards the up side. Now, the exact opposite is true. In fact, people are looking for much lower than the $57 we're trading at.
Only a matter of time. COP will trade sideways-to-down for a long time :(
