I say todays action was a shot across the bow warning the shorts,  sideliners and day / traders that the end game is on. Ya got to figure that there are many Alice Tsangs out there that want proof but they also want in for the "easy money" and we are going to see less risk taking by  sellers hoping  to trade a quick downtick,  what with this added risk that it could pop without notice as large shorts cover  and others get in for the run. 

The trade lately was the risk off trade, sell and buy back for less.  Now that is the risky play and with less shares doing that and short covering and no one selling cept Goldman lol
