I'm not sure how much more blatant things can be (ZH points it out almost daily as does Nanex). We see it in the charts. We see it everywhere. How bout that Double Seasonally Adjustment? LOL! Get used to it folks. I'm not sure you can even call it a manipulation game any more. That would mean that there is still some sort of hope that the market could normalize or become real again. Nope, not gonna happen. The sooner we all buy in and get over the hump that we've lost all control of the government and thus everything else the better.
That's a really tough pill to swallow, but it is what it is, the truth. I suggest you read There Is No Longer A Market: Citigroup Confirms What Zero Hedge Has Said Since 2009.
"We fear they will find that mangling, once started, is hard to stop. Particularly when they remain at least partly in denial as to the extent of it."

I did short just a tiny bit last Friday. Still unsure (obviously) about team manipulation and their plans. I have a feeling we're back to discussing the STB "event" on a daily basis now. That's about all that's going to matter or stop them at this point. Note - I also expect their fear mongering to intensify greatly, so sorting out the truth from the smoke screen will be difficult.

Did anyone else get a Chrome behaving strangely? message from Google this morning? Offering a software removal tool to run to fix the problem? Talk about weird. Uh, hello. Google, uh, what's up with that? Were you hacked? Did someone make it inside you? This is the first time I've been on this computer (travel) in a few months and the message may be old, but I find it rather odd.
More to come below.
Have a good week.
GL and GB!
