there is a reason its Called motley FOOL ! Only Fools pay any attention to it. I'm not selling a nytime soon and especially not under $7-8 good luck and watch the next week or so and don;t worry about quick drops like this.
Motley Fool has nothing to do with this move. Some big hedge fund has a buy target for this stock and the MMs are turning it down to accumulate the shares to meet that buy order. Motley Fool is well named in my opinion!
The only way you can 'take out the stop losses' is if there is nobody buying when you decide to sell. Where were all the other Market Makers when that one Market Maker suddenly decides to 'take out the stop losses' and progressively more shares at progressively lower prices?
The only way this looks 'normal' is if you don't know how an ECN works to begin with.
