agree, but it's not surprising. the large players both short and long want the price lower. They want to buy as much as possible until the earnings catch up with current valuation. The trading programs that are used to buy and sell are often shared by both short and long funds so it computes the best way to deliver to both clients. This works great for them because it frustrates the retail investor who continues to hand over shares at a cheaper price. Spikes like we saw early in the weak are actually what make it possible. It brings in new buyers who buy from shorts high and then the program kicks in and influences them to sell low. Notice the slow bleed is almost always just over $3 M shares per day? It's like a smooth running machine.
The market is not what it used to be. The MM can manipulate price to any level they want. Supply and Demand is tampered with and fabricated in today's market.
