They build into the ask, then when the selling comes through at the bid, they blow the spread out quickly and move the bid down to create a gap. Then when the ask caves and closes the spread, they fill at the bid, push the bid up a bit through the ask, moving the bid and ask up just a bit but keeping the spread tight, then they repeat the process. Exactly what we are seeing now. Always before a big move up.
