A series of press releases will cause several spikes with insiders selling (or holding - they can sell higher if they want, think about it, this just releases their shares)
I think the share price was taken down by the MM because of the 8k. The MM know what a change in direction is when it comes to selling of shares. Do people think this is the first time this has ever been done.
In order to effectively sell all the restricted shares at a graduated price you start at the bottom, not at the top. Again this market is not just for small time shareholders that wiggle blocks of shares out of the market.
There is some order to it though at times that seems lacking. But that is the nature of the beast.
The anticipation of a settlement is absorbed by the MM (Market Makers) and they cover their butts also.
So as some has said 'Enjoy the Ride'
But if their is no settlement in the end. Risk no more than you can afford to loose.
I don't agree with that at all. AH Friday was slow and most people were already off on their vacations. Additionally, there was an interesting article posted on SA after hours that was not some doosh piece. Actually fairly interesting. I'm guessing we see a bump I just don't know how much and what other news may accompany what is already out there between now and Tuesday.
