Tried Warning Everybody on Friday, It Wasn’t a “Flash Crash”, It Was Somebody Selling

From Reminiscences of a Stock Operator:

“I have done my share of trading and have kept fairly well posted on the stock market for many years and I can say that I do not recall an instance when a bear raid caused a stock to decline extensively. What was called bear raiding was nothing but selling based on accurate knowledge of real conditions. But it would not do to say that the stock declined on inside selling or on inside non-buying. Everybody would hasten to sell and when everybody sells and nobody buys there is the dickens to pay”.
