I see this pattern or whatever you want to call it happen over & over in the NQ (I'm sure it happens in other instruments also). The easy, obvious short comes along for example & then price reverses, traders are stopped out, and THEN...........it falls. My question is why does that happen? Is it natural because everyone jumps in the trade & there is no more selling pressure, or does some group or someone push price up to where the stops are? Is it natural or manipulation (for lack of a better word)? If it's not natural then who is pushing the price up? Who are the dummies losing all their money by entering too early?
