This is a theory and only a theory. I am turning to you, the members of ATS and your hardcore thirst for truth and fact-finding, to help me find some evidence that might point to this being a.) an artificially created crisis used to implement global government, currrency and socialist policies and b.) that due to recent developments, like social unrest, threat of riots and chaos and perceived threats toward the powers that initiated this crisis, those powers have decided to "pull the plug" on the planned slide toward depression and have now started to stabalize the financial system.

If one takes the time to look at what has occurred over the past decade in the financial markets a picture of manipulation starts to become clear. Take, for example, the price of oil... I am no economist but I have a basic understanding of economic priniples and practices and I can find no rational explaination for the spike in oil that took the price of a barrel up to $150 USD and then dropped it to under $40 USD per barrel in 6 months.

Whereas I agree that there has been a level of irrational exhuberance regarding real estate, stocks, credit and such, I believe that these were simply tools employed by "the players" to initiate this collapse - but I have no concrete evidence. The story being played out in the media lay out pieces of a puzzle that simply don't fit together and I could certainly use your help to uncover the real pieces.

Nothing has significantly changed over the past 2 weeks to warrant the sudden change in market conditions. Yet Citi and BOA are announcing 1st quarter profitability, the stock market has seen a significant rally, news is emerging that consumer confidence isn't as bad as has been reported and that retail sales have, in fact, surpassed forcasts.
Yet, we have been subjected to gloom and doom forecasts for months - almost as though they were willing a complete collapse. Suddenly, the news has brightened significantly all at once. It all seems too convenient to me.

I theorize that this is due to fear - fear on the part of the global elite; the politicians and bankers. I believe that they may have realized that they have, once again, over-stepped their bounds and in their over-zealous pursuit of a NWO, they didn't take the time to fully analyse the consequences of such a quick deterioration.

To use an analogy; the frog dropped into a pot of boiling water will fight violently to escape while a frog placed in tepid water will cook to death if the heat is turned up ever so slowly so as to not notice the increase in temperature. Was the heat turned up too quickly? Did the people, feeling the heat, threaten violent retaliation sufficient enough to thwart the grand plans for a NWO? OR... am I just being a wild conspiracy theorists and the current "Recovery" is due to stimulus actions by the world's governments and financial institutions? OR... is this only an aberration; a short-term recovery,being used to passify the growing anger toward the PTB so that they may continue to implement their plans, albeit more slowly and calculated?

I would like to use this thread as a respository for news sources and other evidence that may help us find out. I am anxious to hear everyone's opinions and ideas so that we may better formulate an idea of what is happening. After all, our futures fully depend on it! Thanks in advance for your thoughtful input!

Citi et. al. are talking about operating profits: operating revenue minus operating expenses. They're not counting any writedowns, taxes, none of it. They are NOT profitable.

We were long overdue for a rebound rally in this market. It's strictly technical. Look at any stock market decline over a period of time and you'll see periodic upswings.
See example
If there weren't any rallies, one should start getting concerned about manipulation.

Retail sales were up because the retail sales numbers include gas. Notice gas prices have gone up in the past month? See, now here's where I could see some manipulation...want a better headline number? Fudge one of the components!

Consumer confidence numbers are out in about 10 minutes, so we'll see how it really is. Not sure how you've got that it's not as bad as expected when it hasn't been released yet.
