crazy AH prints every day it seems

  1. ok not so crazy ... but in some of the names I follow

    it seems like a daily "oops" take place on either the closing print

    or shortly afterwards .... prices trade 20 cents - 50 cents etc higher and then when people figure out it will be them
    holding the bag ... they scramble to unwind and not lose
    as much as they would if they offset ASAP

    are people that careless or is it the software issues of their brokers or just plan stock message board rumors
    or is it that they just do not care when it is only a few hundred
    shares ?

    maybe I am totally in the wrong here with my comments

    maybe the various ECNs and the customer's brokers
    get calls daily saying ... please "bust or price adjust my
    oops ... trade " ?
