I think you must have been attempting to provide "evidence" below your absurd subject.
Doh! 1x1 -- that takes care of 99% of NASD and is misleading -- my limited experience suggests that ACET enjoys a more liquid market than my instincts (and various numbers) would predict.
And -- because the only thing more mystifying to me than MM-bashing is W's 50% (SO HIGH?!) approval-rating -- let me remind you that the notion that people in "retailing" sell for more than they buy is both time-honored and pretty understandable if you're not brain dead.
... Not that I'm thrilled at every "print" I've ever gotten.... Remember, too, that there's more than a little riding on tomm'w'w announcement -- I'm told that professional investors are generally less "exposed" over weekends than they are the other 4 "nights;" a MM, it seems to me, is doing right by his/her employer in not making it too easy for possible beneficiaries of a leak to profit at his/her employer's expense. (Yeah, I admit that it's at least as likely that THEY -- the MM's -- know what tomm'w's news will be; maybe, too, ACET is "saintly," and no one who doesn't have to knows, and those few aren't taking advantage.)
