Just consider....when a move up starts what is "perfect" for the criminals who run the system?
1) lots of negative news stories planted
2) establish salivating bears with a few big down moves, esp. on "sexy stocks" in the public eye
3) 2 days of gap you face off, bear in the headlights paralysis, with bears knowing that "this has to turn around soon"
Now HBB got alot of bears trapped...perfect time to frog boil up into election time.
