Insider-Trading Probe Reinforces Belief Market is Rigged


www.foxbusiness.com

The insider-trading dragnet that has rocked Wall Street this week appears likely to reinforce the feeling that the house always wins.

For average investors, a lack of trust in the markets is understandable, especially considering the latest probe comes on the heels of analyst scandals in the ‘80s and ‘90s, the scary financial crisis, the emergence of countless Ponzi schemes and the May 6 “Flash Crash.”

Pervasive investor mistrust is deeply troubling and here’s why: If that sentiment becomes cemented in the psyche of the average investor, it could drive them further away from th

I seriously believe that this is WAY OVERDUE~! We're just NOW starting a probe, after 2years of hearing what's going on in the markets??~!!! Give me a break~!

There's only thing that I could point to about this is, those in power only want to stay in power.

[ext]The U.S. stepped up an investigation this week into insider trading that may end up being the biggest ever both in scope and magnitude. Insider trading occurs when someone buys or sells a stock or other security based on nonpublic, material information. If timed correctly, the trades can result in huge profits.[/ext] Just like Martha Stewart, which got HUGE break vs the men that were involed in other Corps ..

I trade in the foreign exchange market as well as the index's, futures, and something that people can call a hedgefund under the AMP banks and a hedge under Goldman Sach bank.

One common misconception by the general public is that they see the same market values we see, for example to better explain this, say the S&P price is at 118.5 on the news, what we see on our trading stations on our PC's is 1185.75, in other words the digit moves over one decimal place to establish some sort of algorithms in place that determine buy and sell pressure.

With this in mind we know to NEVER SELL, only buy seeing as how we are a bank, at certain times (information granted to us by the trading program) we know when certain news will drop and the exact second a chairmen of some bank or institution speaks, these speeches in effect force everyone to enter in a buy/sell position and force the markets to fluctuate in favor of the one with the most money....AKA the bank that runs the scene, while all other investors ride this trend/wave and make their profit and exit

nobody understands this principle in this game we are forced to be apart of, hey we all got to make a living some how, some people just do it better then others, these "manipulated markets" and what people call insider trading does occur, but not in a simple sense which involves deliberate manipulation - the investor simply has enough money to move a market in a certain position that he/she sees to work best for them, this is probably why they call it a game of sharks because it is so fast paced and all $ can be wiped out of ones account in an instant,

the confusion arises when people are given the numbers as they are represented for stock traders on the news and internet, not the numbers used by the hedgefund managers who buy with 1-2 billion $ portfolios

Who in their right mind figures the market isn't rigged?? The same people who run the country--The Federal reserve, run the market. You don't think they are going to lose money do you?? The only people that lose , are the poor smucks who think they can beat a rigged game. The "house " has the odds in their favor
The average joe on the streets doen't need a government probe to tell him the market is rigged. even the lowly street bum knows it's rigged.
Keep in mind this. Everything the main stream media puts out is a distraction from what really matters. Always look for what is behind the story, for there lies the truth.
Everything the government does is for control. Everything the FED does, is for control. if you control the banks, you control the country. it doesn;t really make any diffeence what congress does. They are owned lock, stock , and barrel by the banksters. You didn't really think the president ran the country did you??? Wake up and smell the inflation...it's the new normal--you're going to hear that term alot in the future. With the federal government, the word job, stands for "Just Over broke". --cause that's they way they want everybody.
