It's funny how much short term memory the stock market has. We had one of the sharpest drops last year with no signs of bad economic data and I rarely hear anyone talk about it anymore. It's been a year, is it With that being said, volume is up, market is sharply declining and the shape of the drop looks dangerously like Oct 2018. This is classic pump and dump. "They" whoever they are are buying for 6 months based on "good" fundamentals, than they liquidate everything in a few months, than they pump it up again. You can see this on the charts Feb 2018, Oct 2018, and now heading into Q4 2019... Somebody wants to shake out every investor before safely staying above 30k on S&P.
