It is common to see ignorant posters shaking up these boards. Seems like most every board has one or more now and again. Sometimes the posters have multiple profiles talking to each other(Themsleves). Some of these seem to be professional manipulators, Acting ignorant. Stirring up the confidence, shaking out the weak knees. Some of these are just children with nothing better to do.
Wall street is full of manipulators, Shorting stocks and shaking up the confidence. They pick all the negatives or positives and amplify themand they also make up the biggest part of the story. Wall street manipulators can send their troops into the bulletin boards, even pay them a fee for their posts, and commissions to the amount of interactions they can make with other posters. It is said that each time you respond to these posts they get a commission. Many times where I see the ignorant posters, I most usually see funny looking trades on the market that stands to no good reason in why people move 10,000 shares at a time. The Wallstreet manipulators will be buying and selling shares trying to push the price up or down. Sometimes they are buying and selling to each other, to manipulate the price movement This enhances the price swings in which they profit from the cycles either buying or shorting.Prices can run up with manipulators chasing the asking price and buying even above. This runs the price up so they will sell at the top and throw in some short sales. Than they will sell many small shares into the bids and people think that the price is falling, and through the herd mentality people rush to sell, second guessing why they bought in the first place.
The yahoo board is a great place to manipulate, because it is ventured by so many, with a high percentage of unskilled traders, who can be shaken up. Wall street is full of con men trying to steal your wallets so beware of the manipulators.
The best line of defense is to ignore the ignorant posters. Yahoo should have an ignore button. If enough people request this Yahoo may be able to do it. Also ignoring the professional ignorant poster reduces their commission. Also when you respond to the manipulators this shakes up the non posters confidence. Ignor the ignorant posters, and if you have a need to protect your interests, post the good facts, and don't argue with the ignorant.
This is my own observation along with information that I have picked from others in the know. I watch stock movement every day and can see a lot of manipulations.
Any suggestions on prompting YAHOO! to implement the ignore button? They must have their reasons ,I guess. RB seems to be effectively using that feature but yet those posters don't have the protection from themselves as provided by you know who/what. Any suggestions on how to give YAHOO! our input as a group? Nuzz
