Is the Big Money Setting a Trap?
Back in the 1980’s there was a scenario known as a “specialist trap.” When a stock rallied without any reason and price traded just beyond a significant reference point.
This action trapped investors into buying new highs. The trap occurs because most investors place buy stop orders at obvious points and only look at charts. They have no fundamental criteria for a high-probability buy.
Without a solid fundamental reason for new high prices the market wakes up and corrects to true value.
