"where's the logical answer to why the price is down today?"

I would say the logical answer is that someone dumped 38000 shares in 4 minutes and took out a bunch of bids. Then all the bids disappeared and then began to reappear slowly (technical problem from the exchange maybe). Then a few more people paniced and sold their shares. the selling has subsided and the price is stable - for now. So the question is, why did that person or couple of people dump those shares so quickly? Why not sell out slowly. Someone was in a hurry to exit.
