I've been saying that for 4+ yrs. or every since the demon-crats took office. They should change the name to the U.S. Fed. stock exchange. I still remember when the markets actually wen't up and down and just not down in the morning and then the fed comes in and starts buying the indexs. I think the crooks @ cnbc call it "buying the dips" , the pukes don't say whos' buying.
