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
