February 8, 2010 This market manipulation is legal - for now Most investors recognize that the markets are manipulated... But don’t understand to what degree. Fact is, the next 1,000-point down day has practically been scripted and assigned a date. Knowing how this works can produce some outrageous gains - legally. At least for now. Renowned analyst Jon Markman has the details here . Sponsored content U.S. Joins Global Parade of Countries Plagued by Debt Bomb By Jon D. Markman, Contributing Writer, Money Morning The most important fundamental development of the week was not any of a slew of economic reports at all but the new federal budget proposal released by the White House.
