    STOCK Manipulation (Yes/No)?

    You are right, so now think like they do and turn it to your advantage. We all must do this sooner or later if we want to stay in this game. Now, what would a smart MM do considering the upcoming interest rate reduction? Buy and hold, or buy now and trade after the inevitable Fed-inspired jump? Let's see how much you have learned.

    • What has happened in the last two weeks is this. Houses have been selling, but not materially buying. This is a subtle form of manipulation. As Art Kashin said from the floor, "If no one is buying, there isn't much you can do to support the market."

      The houses sold calls for March (today) in Jan, and they've been selling puts for April on, since February. The market will turn on a dime next week. All of a sudden the bad news will dry up. Analysts will start touting their favorites again, and the houses will release their traders to start buying, gradually. We'll get some jerkiness, but we'll be going up for a few weeks.
