Hip Question

Im a little confused on the correct hip position during squats. I havent squatted in over a year and am a little rusty. I take a wide stance and I have always tried to sit as far back as possible on the way down then explode up thrusting the hips. But are the hips supposed to stay in a neutral position? Because I always feel like mine are in an anterior position when I squat down and back.

Help.....

I'll try but might take a day or two. As to the purely technical aspect, neutral hips throughout or anterior tilt?

I finally decided to sit my ass down today and watch/read every video I could on proper squat technique. Dave Tate, Louie Simmons, Elitefts, etc. My biggest insight was that since I can do a proper wall squat with toes touching wall with bar on my back, that I "understand" the mechanics of a proper squat. And most important recognize/feel the proper motion. I tried to get a video today, but it turned out all distoted and was skipping but will keep trying.
