Here's a thought. The rumour was started by a British newspaper.
There are rules and regulations that govern stock manipulations by giving out false rumours that can be detrimental to a stock holder. Ask yourself this question. Why would a British newspaper allow one of it's writers to start a false rumour?. London being one of the major centers of finance, has very strict laws. By deliberately starting a false rumour, the paper opens itself up to some very serious regulatory and possible litigation lawsuits, that could end up costing a lot of money. Folks, something is going on and we will find out very soon. GLTA
