What's "unbelievable" is how clueless you are. TD, Etrade, Scott, Schwab, MLPFS, Piper - ALL OF THEM. How's this scenario. If 10,000 people buy 10,000 shares, then their "broker's" in-house hedge can sell short 1,000,000,000 shares simply by "borrowing" from their "clients." You stock drops 3%, they pocket 3% AND THEY CHARGE YOU FOR THE PRIVILEDGE. Add the manipulation of index/options derivatives + high freak penny stripping "hedge" funds...you are ALL losers...E-V-E-N-T-U-A-L-L-Y!
Go ahead! Pat yourselves on the back about how clever you are. You're playing THEIR game...and "your time is gonna come..." as surely as night follows day.
