Sounds like a movie plot or just another deranged trader angry at the world. It's nothing as simple as that (I wish it was). I�m not a trader, rather a long term investor who analyzes and takes long positions in promising companies such as MTIC. A rather successful and astute analyst with a major brokerage firm told me a few months ago that "institutions would attempt to recapture the market from the individuals� (people like you and me). I scoffed at him and asked �that�s insane, what would be gained by such a thing� and �who are these people�. He smirked and said �you�ll see�. Well, I�ve been watching this market very closely ever since then and even more since Alan Greenspan hinted about margin interest being too high. Well, in my opinion this downward destruction of NASDAQ is more than just �natural market� happenstance. We have a great economy, full employment and the promise of more to come. Someone or a group of these people figured out how to get this snowball �squeeze� moving. In other words, keep the short selling pressure on (an artificial maneuver), keep margin calls coming in, the margin calls create more selling and the snowball continues. This week these people �knew beforehand� that the tax week would create a focused vulnerability and started this artificial short-selling process again. I Firmly believe that the people behind this drop are organized and profiting from the wanton short selling that they are creating. They are falsely attempting to create a financial panic, resulting in a total loss of confidence by the investing public in the free capitalist system which we have worked hard to build. The U.S. Government should (IMHO) start a MAJOR INVESTIGATION to identify and PUNISH the people are NOW PARTICIPATING in this organized attempt to DESTROY THE INDIVIDUAL NASDAQ investors. How to find them: Irregular shorting activity by market-makers, specialists, organizations or individuals is a good place to start. These people are attempting to upset the natural balance in the market through a loophole (short-selling) which was originally designed as a tool or market stabilizer. It�s not being used to stabilize the market, rather they�re shorting stocks to artificially create MARGIN CALLS. Please print this letter off or write your own and email or mail your congressman. The SEC and FBI won�t act on their own. Just maybe with enough support we can turn the �hunter� into the �hunted�. If you wish to write to your congressman or senator to REQUEST AN INVESTIGATION into this MARKET MANIPULATION, try these very helpful websites: http://www.house.gov/writerep http://www.senate.gov The house service is provided to assist you in finding and contacting Members of the United States House of Representatives. The Senate provides you with each Senators location file and email address. Tell them that in your opinion the SEC is NOT doing enough to protect the individual investor in this matter. It�s time to fight back.
