The Devil of course! No seriously, he probably works for Goldman (whose name appears on his profile) or some other organization who profits from having a rising market and protecting the status quo. Despite being a soul-less manipulator drawing lambs to the slaughter for the enrichment of his bosses, I must admit that generally, going back to early 2009, you would have done very well trading on his advice. I didn't listen and I lost my @ss back then. Does losing money make one philosophically pure? The market will move with or without us. Our money earned in it is legal tender and pays our bills, whether or not we agree with the move. So I am now a bull, for the moment, and I will curse the market and its manipulators but smile at my portfolio.
