Why does share price suddenly fall as it is right now?

With so many shares being bought and sold one would think there would be a fairly steady price. Is there manipulation by anyone (any institution) Seems illogical price should suddenly fall. What causes some of the amazing spikes I sometimes see?

Some of the spikes are way out of the ordinary. Why should the share price shoot up for such a short time then come down just as fast?

What is to stop an institution putting out a knockout warrant knowing some other big institution is going to buy a lot of shares related to the warrant? Still amazes me that a big buyer could not buy a lot of shares at half the spike value - would have thought a sudden buy offer of a few more cents would see a lot of people wanting to sell
