Getting too manipulated, and as we have seen with AAPL, even a great stock can be held down by the Big Boys on WS longer than we can hold on to it by persevering through it all. It's all in the depth of the pockets.
Just as with big banks need to be investment banks OR conventioanal banks and not both, markets need to split into two separate and non-interacting markets.......investments and trading. The concept is right and something truly has to be done to keep the retail investor who wants stability in his blue chips and utilities not volatility in them as bad as a microcap. That is where we are today, and it is getting worse.
