Has to do with Russell 2000 entrance criteria...not conspiracies by aliens to run your stops. Do some homework, and you'll see that some of these "conspiracies" are just regular market events that you could cash in on. Last minutes of the last day in May have been seeing action like this for quite some time. 72% of last trading days in May since 1984 (year zero for Russell Indices) have been positive days. That percentage grows higher if the final trading day in May is closer to the 31st. Range for these days averages around 1.75%. S&P was trading at around 905 (close to day's low) at 2:50p.m. yesterday. 905 x 1.75%= 15.84 15.84 + 905 = 920.84 -------S&P closed at 920 (pretty damn close). Hope all finds this helpful.
