This is more to the point: Moves like the GS "soft" downgrade, where they leave their target price way above the current pps is something the various market makers ALWAYS take advantage. Whether or not, or to what degree, GS is doing one thing with the right hand, and another with their left hand is hard to predict,,,,but this is for SURE: The different LINE market makers NEVER miss a beat...they downtick the pps all day long, so that THEY can accumulate bookooo shares at a much lower cost, then resell them back to you at a higher cost when, magically, GS raises their "outlook", and the dark disappears.
Been that way for 100 years. That's how idiot retails and new investors keep the market in business. Buy and hold long term is the only way to beat them at their own game. Pretend you don't hear their "noise".
