It was not that shares were dumped. The shares were rather stolen. People usually keep stoploss limit just below the 52 week low as a precaution, especially in these days of margin calls and loss of funds. Hence that big spike in the volume. We didn't hit it yesterday. And you can guess why we hit it today. This is what happens usually at the market bottoms.
It is not the company or the fundamentals. The regulators have been looking the otherway while the shorts continue to pound the stocks. Now since FED has lost its magic wand, there is nothing we can do but let the stocks go to zero. The stocks have been brought down steeply since the shorting of financials was banned. You can see the pattern. Just check the dates and the declines. There is also another dimension to all this. Think who will gain when the stocks lose this much value, financially and politically. If the markets go down and the economy looks bad, who will gain? There is more than fundamentals and simple market forces to this kind of action. I may be wrong. Only time will tell when people begin to do postmorten analysis of who did what.
