The Stock Market Plunge on May 6, 2010.

The Stock Market Manipulators Tested the Traders on May 6, 2010.

This is only a test.

If this was an actual crash;

it would have taken a few days longer;

it would have gone beyond a 1000 point loss on the Dow;

and it would not have returned like it did.

Only manipulation can make the Dow drop more than 700 points in about 4 or 5 minutes;

magically stop just a couple of points beyond a 1000 point drop;

and then immediately go back up over 600 points in just a matter of 8 - 10 more minutes.

One exchange said it had a mechanism to slow it down.

Look at the charts. The only slow down was on the way back up; and that was NOT slow.

The market was due for a dip, but manipulation is not an ethical way to force people out of it.

Remember, this was only a test; a test to see how the world would respond to drastic market manipulation.

The huge amount of money lost by investors because of this manipulation is beyond sickening.


Below, you can view numerous charts, and judge for yourself.

Or you can go about your way, and think things like this just happen, because...

someone hit the wrong key.

there was a glitch in the system.

all the automation took off as if it had a mind of its own with no checks or balances.

or any other lame excuse someone will come up with.

Any response will be as realistic as the very small country of Greece taking the whole world economy to its knees (which has been just another world order test).

Propaganda works very well when the world media jumps all over a story.

What happened to a trustworthy media? Probably about the same thing that happened to a fair and ethical stock market.

It is time to kick out every politician in office, and start out fresh; they stopped serving the people a long time ago. All their pensions need to be made null and void too.
