For example, according to the SEC's complaint, the traders used multiple accounts to place several small sell orders to drive down a stock’s price before using a different set of accounts to buy larger amounts of the stock at the artificially low prices. After accumulating their position, the traders then flipped the script and placed several small buy orders to push up prices so they could then sell their stock at artificially high prices.Small sell orders could be considered manipulation? Uh Oh. Someone alert the SEC that GRDO is being manipulated. I bet it ain't a Chinese group here tho.
