I have been reading this forum for a while and have learned qiute a bit. Quick question to old timers (or to people that have seen a lot) Take a look at the intraday chart of JPM today (2/24). Especially in the afternoon it really seemed like somebody is trying to hold the price below 20.50. Everytime it touched 20.50 it bounced down. It was fascinating(and frustrating because I am long JPM) for a while it did go over 20.50 only to come back sharply. Eventually the price went over 20.50, but I coild never shake off the impression that somebody is "trying to hold the price down". I have heard of traders supporting the price in the mid day when there is not a lot of volume, but the volume today is more than twice the average (even with the dividend announcement) seems pretty high. Am I crazy to think that somebody "artificially" is holding the price down? If I am not, who can do that , and what does it mean for the future price of the stock? Any theories? I wish I could post a picture of the chart.
