terpstrader - the volume was because of Options expiration .....nothing more nothing less.
and the spike in volume is expected in the last hour as expiration occurs.
1 million shares above average is not all that a big of a deal.
Welcome back to the single digits ......
next week's action will depend mostly on the WASH DC mess with the spineless politicians ( unless MCP makes a public announcment or if the SEC makes a public announcement )
with only 3.5 trading days it's highly unlikely MCP will see $11 as the handsome_mexican is praying for.
