I know. So I'll keep this short. Maybe I'm wrong with my conclusions here, but the charts and facts make sense to me. I can't tell you when a crash (slash the next 'correction' to be ) will be...but I can show you how they're engineering things in the US equity markets without
$DIA (to compare industrials vs. broader market a la $SPY)
$AAPL & $XOM (tech vs. energy - equity comparison)
$DX vs $CL - Inverse correlation; why? Most would say because we are oil consumers..but..the U.S. has 2x the oil reserves of the Middle East and we are trading 'futures' (sorry OPEC)(http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/04/how-much-oil-is-really-in-the-us/256186/)
$CL vs. $SPX - The name of the game.
1. stops the market from hitting 0.
My Conclusion(s): By using their control on the oil pipeline, the powers that be are flooding the market with their excess. This has caused a massive spike in the of oil being traded. Though earning money from the sales of these (buy low, sell high, etc..), the drop in oil is caused the spike in the dollar it's supposed to. But the spike in the dollar is NOT sticking to the inverse relationship with the market that it's historically had. (Since when? Total coincidence...the end of )
The NYSE is traded..in..well..USD obviously; the price of stocks is going up because their value in $$ is increasing via the $DX spike.
How do they crash the market? Stop selling oil so cheaply. And what about bonds? Doesn't matter, whatever they want to really.
