is being manipulated? I think with the indexes the idea of the PPT is well supported, but the E&P and gold are still underperforming the commodity [oil up today ECA Down!!?}. Seems to me someone has declared that none are to profit from Bushes adventures [except haliburtin and Bectel of course], or Americas economic problems. Anyway there was a time when stocks were allowed to react to things like the expectation of $20 oil not materializing.
I feel the market is "manipulated" by buyers and sellers. Somedays there is more buying interest and the prices go up. Then, amazingly, on other days there is more selling interest. Definitely "manipulation". Damn that Trilateral Commission, I still think Kissinger is the master manipulator, he and Cheney...now that we don't see him so often... I bet he's in cahoots with that worm Grasso over at the NYSE. Here's my plan. Keep it secret. We all go on Yahoo web sites and write about the manipulation and then the NY Times hears about our postings and assigns a top flight 26 year old reporter to do a page one above the fold story on the manipulation. We won't need any facts to back up our case because we know they'll make up juicier quotes than we could ever imagine. Do you think my plan has legs??
