....seems to contradict this next one. While in theory, there are a "million factors that could lead to something like this", in reality, the markets are manipulated, so the only way it can happen is after those manipulative forces are trumped by more powerful forces.

I've recently pulled everything out of the stock market. The DOW creeps back up and my investments stay down. I'm considering cashing out my 401k entirely. Right now my 401k isn't invested and just sitting in a bank account. I'm tired of playing this game. Sure 401ks have worked out for some people but those days are over. The golden age of the United States has passed.
I am also tired of constantly worrying about money to the point of illness.
With my money out of the market my stress level has gone down and I no longer fixate on it.
Kind of a slight rant.
Anyhow I agree in your post.
