"Your assertion is nto worth sh**. "
it also seems you have a fixation sh.. so that would go with your wind. its all reality so it will cost you money in the end.
ps. 'nto' is not a word. like all you other babbeling.
its the DOW chart, not S&P, thats the one that is reflective. the other indices dont often move against the DOW anyway. look at 1 yr chart - drys shows all the moves of the DOW with an accentuation on the down side aspect, but still the same structure. there are of course variations on the theme, some shares show accentuation on the up side, nevertheless that all move in tandem.
no, all stocks follow the indices. the only time that would be otherwise if large players like hedgefunds decide to buy or sell against the flow. but this is rare now days. check any chart on the DOW against the DOW index, they are exactly the same, except for very minor diferences. this = a central computer driving the market. now who do you think has the money and power to do that?
