Compare the last two days on the 5-day chart. Quick selling until 11:30 or so each day with no news and steady range bound trading the rest of the day. This is classic manipulation trading for those that have not seen it. The Quick drop allows the short to get out of a position while the stock price is falling. Then the price stabilizes and they get back in with a lot of shares but pay little to no premium for them. Rinse and repeat. Sooner or later they make all their money back holding a short position much lower that the current PPS. At that point they are playing with the house's money when and if the stock is allowed to go long on good news. They basically bought a cheap low position and have nothing left to lose. If you have money and know people, that's the way to do it.
