That's what institutional sellers do.
If you are the manager of Merrill Lynch Fund A* and you have decided you no longer want Fund A to have shares of Apple, you do not sell them all at once, this could be tens or hundreds of thousands of shares. That would trash the stock price. Instead you sell in blocks shares, spacing out the sell orders. They might be spaced every hour, they might be spaced every day.
I think it is a huge assumption to look at one part of one day on a gold price chart and scream manipulation.

What I would like to know about is something that isn't manupulated. Can we get a list? I think it will be a short one.

The ideal manipulation would be to drive prices sky high not drop them.
