You miss my point- # 1, I bought when the stock was up- so I am stuck, for now- secondly, I didn't say they were working at manipulating the stock- but their constant selling pressure holds the stock back just the way a stock rises when it is being accumulated- but in the opposite- (down) direction- the ones that are selling are in this for themselves- obviously- but they are less concerned about holding the price of the stock up- for the benefit of ALL shareholders- than most insiders- and the perceived value of the stock suffers as a result-
This is the kind of twisted logic your mind creates when you make a bad trade. Insiders can't sell or buy enough stock to really effect the price to any degree. Sorry you made a bad trade but you will have to eat it or hold it. Chaulk it up as a lesson in trading. DON'T blame the company for your crappy trades.
