For those of you with an economic inclination:


There is much speculation and anecdotal information regarding the rally that began March 6 2009, which have
suggested the gains are the result of massive manipulation on the part of the Federal Reserve (FR) and the large
institutions that dominate Treasury securities dealing, program trading and the derivatives markets. Traders have
reported that traditional indicators and metrics used for market analysis stopped working for periods of time or
altogether, and that correlations among markets have been erratic and quick to change. Record program trading by
Goldman Sachs as reported by the NYSE, heightened focus on high frequency trading (HFT), outsized profits by the
large and well-connected banks, along with unprecedented intervention by the FR in the markets only fuel the
manipulation speculation
