A New Paradigm On Wall Street

Recommended Posts

With all the shorting and long position being taken during the turmoil and then the FED being misled with erroneous data the small investor does not stand a chance, the big players in Wall street are just too big now. Very worrying and something that will only be resolved when they get caught out by there own tricks and the FED is unable to help. It is hardly surprising they are able to take positions to capitalise on the turmoil they are running the show! :o
