Almost everybody must have noticed how the CNBC, other media and the hedge funds have been keeping the markets down for no obvious reason. Everyday we see controlled, manufactured sell-off's to supress any rally attempt. Equities remain much lower than where they should normally be. Could the US be planning to attack Iran soon and could they be keeping the markets down to reduce the possible huge impact on the US economy? Probably the ruling elite has knowledge of this and are preparing the US markets. I can't really come up with any other explanation. Stocks are trading at low P/E ratios, the real estate market is already in a terrible shape. Where is all the money? What are your thoughts?
