    large volume for 1 minute periods

    5 times today we had volume of 50K to 60K in one minute. These are huge spikes. Why?

    CRM can trade anywhere from 0 in one minute to 10K. Look at the volume. Why do we have these spikes? Not normal trades for CRM.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Check the weekly options volume kids, put activity is minor compared to volume in the 175 calls. Pattern of the week, sell down some on wednesdays back to lunacy by end of week.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • More than half of shares traded occur on exchanges other than the exchange on which an equity is listed. So most of CRM trades off the Nasdaq. I have noticed your above mentioned phenomenon in other equities.
      My hypothesis is that small accumulations are made off-exchange and then collected in one report, so then all of those small delays look like a dark area until the big lump comes in and appears as one trade.

      I do remember last quarter another cloud computer, reporting weeks before crm, did not do very well. It dropped and took crm for a dip, from which crm quickly recovered and resumed the madness.

    • Overalll volume runnin higher than usual as well. Is this positioning in caution with N and CTXS earnings releases? N is tomorrow. Anyone remember whether good N is bad or good for CRM?

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
