Does our media and our pundits understand that our markets are now electronic? There is no ‘tie’ (of our money) to material reality (our general economy)!

Image result for all our markets are now electronic and operate via algorithms

Market cycles used to create corrections but today our markets do not correct. The current bull market is over 126 months (with no correction). Why?

Today, our electronic stock exchanges do not measure real economic activity. These electronic exchanges are manipulated and pumped up/down with speed of light trading (mostly algorithms) daily. I call this manipulation and/or rigging. Let’s look at a few electronic exchanges for understanding.


1. The Dow exchange is up some 16% for the year. America’s economy has slowed and yet the Dow index can continue to go up and up via trading algorithms (indefinitely). Today, the Dow was up some 171 points at the opening (this happens in seconds). Then the Dow jumped another 170 points within an hour after opening. This pattern of jumping up at the opening and then a 2nd time to establish a pattern seems like a regular action of our traders. Who is behind this trading? It appears that it is the New York Fed. Some call this trading team the Plunge Protection Team. I call it pure trading manipulation by select traders at the Fed. Wall Street on Parade (Pam and Russ Martens) say that hundreds of billions of loans are going to Wall Street for stock investing. Today, electronic markets allow all this computer manipulation via algorithmic trading. Our system is totally corrupt and few desire to expose the culprits.


2. The Russian economy has slowed as oil revenue has declined, yet the Russian electronic stock market has gone up some 13% year to date. Why? I would suggest that electronic markets can go up even as the general economy goes down. The trading digits have NO ‘tie’ to material reality (the general economy).


3. The Venezuelan economy has totally crashed this past year and yet the electronic stock market in Caracas has gone up some 3081%. Is this amazing or what? Why? It’s all because our trading money is now decoupled from the general economy of material goods. We live with cyber money (virtual units of consciousness) as our money. The mind of traders is decoupled from the material production within an economy. This allows trading digits which price our electronic stock exchanges to go up even as the general economy goes down. Algorithms to most of our trading today. What are algorithms? They are subjective ‘instructions’ programmed into software for a computer to execute.


4. China has slowed this past year but the Shanghai stock exchange is up some 20% year to date. All the China stock exchanges are electronic. They operate with trading digits just like the American exchanges. They can go up even as the general economy goes down. Why? Our money units are not TIED to anything material (like silver or gold). Who is aware of what is happening within our corrupt monetary markets?


5. A host of economies are now slowing around the world, including India, Brazil, Argentina, Iran, Turkey, most of Africa, Germany and most of the European countries, and yet most of these electronic stock exchanges (in all these countries) go up and down with no tie to material production of goods, the general economy. We live with mental abstractions (symbols) as our money units and they trade in this space called Cyberspace. Cyberspace is part of my/your extended consciousness. With our money not ‘tied’ to material reality, and with subjective trading of stocks via algorithms, our electronic markets do not reflect any ability to measure the real economy.


Conclusion: we could witness a continuing manipulation of all these electronic stock exchanges going forward. This could continue for months and maybe years. The Dow, S & P 500, and the Nasdaq (all electronic indices) could continue going up and up (with no real correction) even as the America general economy (goods, manufacturing, real estate, autos, retail, consumer spending, etc.) go side ways or down. It’s all because our electronic markets are not ‘tied’ to anything material. Our money units are mental abstractions (mere symbols of the mind).


There is no ‘tie’ of these money units to material reality. Are mental symbols ‘tied’ to material production? Are mental symbols (our money) tied to goods. Are mental symbols tied to matter (material reality)? Think about what we now use for our MONEY? We use a unit of the mind. Consciousness creates these units of nothing. It’s all ‘imaginary’ money. Funny money! Fake money! This allows the trading of these symbols ($$$$$) to go in one direction even as the general economy goes in the opposite direction. Think on this to discern why our markets continue upward (now for over 10 years with no correction).


When will our pundits discover this reality? When will investors discover this reality? When will our banksters discover this reality? When will our finance committee’s within Congress discover this reality? When will Trump discover this reality? We need Mr. Trump to start a Tweet Campaign on our corrupted monetary system. Let Mr. Trump know that our money is now IMAGINARY (virtual). Maybe he can educate the public! Have a great day and pass this missive on to Mr. Trump.

Most trading is now done via algorithms (source codes give the instructions)!

Attn: Mr. Trump: Can you explain virtual money? Algorithmic trading? The policies of the Plunge Protection Team? Why the markets never correct?

Have a great day! Pass this missive on to Mr. Trump for his Tweet on the issues! He could wake-up the public! I am:
