I know one thing , if that HFT machine were mechanical instead of electronic , it would have caught on fire from the friction ..... this is one manipulated MF stock always being "played" with , and always has that "one huge volume stick" at the last minute ....
The last 10 trading days SD has either opened up or a small gap up with only 1 meaningful rally on the 13th which actually ended up a solid candle. Technically speaking the 9 day and 21 day are almost on top of each other with the tightest BB constriction since 8/31/2012. I have been watching the time and sales every day for the past 5 days and though there are more sellers (shorts) than longs the number of shares purchased by longs are significantly more than the quantity of shorts there have just been more 100 share shorts to drive the price down.
After the close on Friday there were several odd lot purchases between 16:01 and 16:07 CST totaling 5.4MM shares as confirmed buys (long). The wick low put in on 3/9/2013 did not get to where it went on 11/9/2012 and the MACD is still trending up.
This may not make many of you feel better depending on where you are "in" on SD but the chart says in my opinion we are going to go up very soon.
Your thoughts and analysis are always appreciated.
