it took alot of consorted action today, to move both the vix and vxx down. only 4 to 6 dow stocks (moving up 1.00+ in price) are moving the avg up now. as the usd shrinks in value, commodities drop in price and the gdp contracts due to international slowdowns or a.k.a. recessions, real life issues will start to pull money out of wallstreet.
like the media says, its too late in the game to pump the markets anymore and Obama won't allow the republicans to pump anymore money into the stockmarket.
