May 17, 2016 | Select ‘Prices’ – managed, monitored, controlled (via Algo’s)!

Donald B. Swenson: Born January 24, 1943, Roseau, Minnesota. Graduated H.S. 1961, Moorhead High, Minnesota. Graduated College 1968, Moorhead State University, Minnesota. Designated member of Appraisal Institute (MAI), 1974. Employed with Western Life Insurance Company, 1968 – 71; Iowa Securities Company, 1971 – 73; American Appraisal Company, 1974 – 81. Part-time teacher/valuation consultant/bartender, 1979 – 2008 (taught workshops at Waukesha County Technical Institute, Wi. and Madison Area Technical College, Wi.). Retired 2008 (part time teacher/blogger), AZ. Self educated economist/philosopher/theologian:

Capitalism has been replaced with a Command economy where our ‘prices’ can now be managed, altered, changed, monitored, manipulated, rigged, and controlled via our electronic machines and coded instructions. Who is aware of today’s corrupt marketplace and how it operates? Who does the Commanding and where does it derive from? What we all need to recognize is that our markets are now located totally within ‘Cyberspace’ (this netherworld of our consciousness). We live today with ‘digital’ money and mostly ‘virtual’ assets…which we trade daily in real-time via our computers. This is all done electronically and at near the speed of light. Today I purchased a mining stock and sold an ETF. The sale was instantaneous (within the blink of my eye the transactions were completed). What has changed to allow this speed within our markets? What has happened these past 15 – 18 years to change all our markets?

Karl Marx and his COMMAND philosophy is now at work within the United States of America, Europe, and Asia! Add the images of Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi,  Xi Jinping, Haruhiko Kuroda, Stephan Ingves, and William Dudley to the above picture (there are many more also)!



Central Banks (via select trading desks, QE operations, algorithms, and electronic exchanges) do CONTROL our marketplace today and set many of our cyber ‘prices’! Few, however, are AWARE of what is happening in real-time! We now live within a COMMAND global economy!

Trading platforms and our laptop/mobile computers perform monetary transactions via speed of light frequencies. Our electro magnetic spectrum of frequencies execute a transaction at light speed. What a change from the old days of human negotiations via words and paper instruments. Our money today (really our digital currency) should be viewed as a unit of our consciousness which acts within this netherworld called ‘Cyberspace’. I now transfer ‘cyber’ digits from my computer to another computer in order to execute a transaction. Machines execute trades and algorithms act as the tool for execution (and also the counterparty). Algorithms and coded software instructions act without any human input to execute trades between buy Algo’s and sell Algo’s. There is no need for a human being to interfere with all these trading ‘algorithms’. Robots and automatic machines do all the manipulations!

Algorithms now rule over all trading and prices! We live within Cyberspace and few comprehend what all this means! Prices and ‘price discovery’ are now derived via trading algorithms (mostly)!

Today, if I wish, I can let my robot Algo trade for me all day long. It’s all a matter of setting the code and the instructions based upon my personal trading philosophy. Algo’s will buy and sell for me all day long and I can be out doing other chores. What a change from the old days of human decision making (real traders in the pits) via the Open Outcry system for setting prices. Today, we have some 13 electronic trading exchanges within the U.S.A. These electronic exchanges can trade symbols and virtual digits all day long and 24/7 so as to earn digital profits and losses for the traders. Our money today is a ‘digit’ (one’s and zeros/bits and bytes) within this netherworld called ‘Cyberspace’. All our Central Banks can now manage, monitor, alter, change, manipulate, rig, and control select ‘prices’ via their Algo’s and their HFT computers (all behind closed doors). Who is aware of these changes within just the past 15 – 18 years?

Our PRICES are now ‘cyber’ prices and electronic trading sets our prices (often independent of Supply and Demand forces)! This is what I would call RIGGING of our markets via machines!

Take the ‘price’ of crude oil as an example. This cyber price is managed, monitored, and controlled via select trading venues daily. The forces of supply and demand are no longer important for setting this ‘cyber’ price (which I witness within my computer screen). The supply of crude could be excessive with no available storage to hold all the supply (as I witness today)…yet the ‘cyber’ PRICE could be manipulated UP, DOWN, or SIDEWAYS by our electronic trading algorithms. Who could and who is likely doing all this manipulation? Think about our Central Bank trading desks and their private proxies who can use our COMMAND finance system for their purposes. What is a COMMAND finance system? Did you know that our Central Bank called the FED has some 500 traders who trade our markets at the New York Federal Reserve Bank, 33 Liberty Street, N.Y.? What can these traders now do? What is their mission?

Our New York Fed has some 500 traders manipulating our Cyber markets daily! Who is aware?

These traders (and any proxy trader under their control) can (and do) monitor, trade, manipulate, elevate, and suppress all our ‘cyber’ markets in real-time daily. If these COMMAND authorities desire to suppress a metal price (say like silver or gold) they can do so via their trading strategies on our electronic markets. These central authorities can manipulate the cyber PRICE of oil (or silver/gold) UP or DOWN via select trading strategies on our electronic futures markets. The Globex electronic exchange is one platform which these COMMAND authorities can use to manage, alter, change, rig, or control a particular PRICE. All that is needed are ‘cyber’ digits (our money today) and a trading computer to execute their trade (now mostly via ‘algorithms’). Think on this for a minute! What can select central manipulators DO within our electronic cyber markets to affect our markets? Wake-up and think about what has occurred within just the past 15 – 18 years. We now live within CYBERSPACE for all our savings, investments, lending, borrowing, credit transactions, and trading!

A picture of Cyberspace (digits flying from sender to receiver at the speed of light)! Bits/bytes consisting of ones and zeros now operating as our Price Discovery Mechanism! What a change from historical Capitalism! Few seem AWARE of what has happened these past 15 – 18 years!

Yes, my friends, all our markets are now rigged, managed, monitored, and controlled by computers and our CENTRAL (Command) Authorities determine how the markets perform within real-time. We no longer live within free market Capitalism! We now live within Cyberspace (our extended consciousness) and our future is determined and dictated by Central COMMAND Criminals (who act behind CLOSED doors)! The entire marketplace is RIGGED and few comprehend what is happening daily. Our PRICES are rigged, our VALUES are rigged, and our INVESTMENTS are rigged. The system is now a COMMAND SYSTEM (we might call it Socialism and/or Communism in the making)! There is no turning back from this rigged system without a total CRASH and COLLAPSE (then a NEW system)! Give these ideas some thought this week. Enjoy! I am:
