    It’s like $GM not reporting monthly car sales. If you don’t like the trend in unit sales, stop reporting unit sales….and the opacity of the stock market goes further down the rabbit hole…

      $GM declining 200DMA and volPOC right above at 3.78. Yes there was an earnings pop but action at this level is key. Could be a good short under 37.78 back into the gap bottom around 34.
