Exelent observation, Cloque. Psychology is the key to a simple fact of a careful and a look-like random act of a disaster. Masked deception. Hedgers set up a chain of the 'sell triggers' to create an illusion of a panic. Staged pain, disbelieve, threat, fear and agony of a financial catastrophy generate a Grant Illusion of a reality, similar to a REALITY once upon a time created by the Katerina The Great lover Prince Potyomkin, who had built the facades only for the very poor villages to give them an appearance of the prosperous life.
The psychology of an illusion is indeed at play.
