Thanks ITZ! Seems to be a repeating pattern and those commercials are 'smart money'. They have deep pockets so they don't get squeezed and forced out. Sometimes this pattern plays out over weeks. That could stretch from a spring wash-out low right into a transition to June seasonal.
Like you said, the key is when/if the Launch happens. Your method will 'hook a Big One' if it happens ... I'm not a short term trader so I need to figure out how to position and when to get in!! Good luck to us both.
