24. Nope. That is not "manipulation", same as buying it up to high prices is not manipulation


Manipulation is when you try to get other people to buy it so you can sell it at a higher price than you bought it at. By cajoling, blogging, touting, tweeting, wining & dining, etc.

Similarly, manipulation is when you try to get other people to sell a stock down to lower prices so you can can buy it.

Collusion and conspiracy is when you work together with other people to buy it so you can sell it at a good price. Similarly, colluding and conspiring with other people to sell it so you can buy it at a good price.

There are exceptional cases such as the manipulations of the 1890s and cornering the silver market.

But just like buying an undervalued stock at a low price is not manipulation, so selling an overvalued stock at a high price is not manipulation.
