1st Yes, and even previously to a news announcement, as “often” or “always” leakage…
We can clearly see some action on the stock, on volume and SP…Prior to a NR
Buy the rumor, sell the news!
Best ex. is the most recent news
Previously to the announcement the stock was picking up in volume and in price.
Check on this chart early January check volume was increasing and the SP was moving up till the NR date January 15th. from there profit taking, was on! ... IMHO!
2nd I don’t predict SP when I post, as every investor or traders here have their own goal & SP target in mind with a stock.
