has been a topic for a few years now, and I think in general we have seen some "creep" in the timing by folks who want to sell in advance of the mob rather than in the middle. Either way, I think by the time February gets here the price will be little affected. The only impact will be some emotional upheaval in folks who see only the past week or two.
Now, there might be some other folks who are waiting for the price dip in year end tax selling. If that selling pressure does not materialize it will be interesting to see what they do next.
Again, people on the threads, here and everywhere, are not likely running enough money to make much of a difference. What we are really trying to guess at is the actions of money managers.
