This is like the bio-tech bubble bursting and/or the high tech bubble coming to an end in the 90's. A new bottom every day and new buyers thinking it can rebound. No one knows for sure what is going on here but somehow manipulation in the stock market is nothing new. The solar industry traders made a few believers in that case. Just toss a coin because it's always been a 50/50 gamble. How would you like to be a stock broker today? Making no return on your money right now is better than losing. Somehow all cash is looking like a good thing. Hope these REITS aren't another Madoff with bogus earnings. Fannie and Freddie were always supposed to be the best retirement tools out there until they went broke. Maybe this industry is just too competitive with everyone else coming out with a new REIT just like all those ETF's which are all down. Reminds me of a pyramid scheme. Those who started out first are the winners if they took their profits leaving only the bagholders. Good luck on this one.
