You could see how the MM's were able to keep the stock down all day.
ie. Up .03 cents on 10,000 shares, down ..08 cents on 100 shares.
ALMOST 99% OF THE TIME, A STOCK WILL BE DOWN BEFORE GOOD EARNINGS, AND UP BEFORE BAD EARNINGS.
DON'T BELIEVE ME? OBSERVE THIS ACTION IN ANY STOCK BEFORE EARNINGS ARE ANNOUNCED.
It's so obvious it defies imagination.
Anyone who has been in the stock market for a long period of time know they are playing with manipulation.
No one should gripe, as they know when they are playing the game they are in with the sharks.
If you are bothered by it, then don't be in the stock market. It's that simple.
It has been going on since the beginning of time.
It is a game (like Politics) where only those who can lie, cheat, and connive, can sleep nights with the devil.
Looks like you are new to the market, but this happens all the time. MMs are paid to do that kind of manipulation. HedgeFunds and other big institutions always sell/buy via MMs. Even today after hours all the big institutions are selling to the retailers via the MMs.
But you are right about the manipulation, it's really pathetic.
