I dont trade after 11:30 but I do monitor the market looking for some type of playable pattern. So far I havent found anything. It does appear to me, though, that there is some manipulation going on. It seems to me that the big players love this afternoon chop. When price gets down to the lower range area they come in buying and hold the price up. The little people come in, get all excited and run the price back up to the top of the range where the big players unload and the price drops like a lead balloon. Is this just my imagination?
