Stock futures can be manipulated short term. Forex markets like the australian dollar versus USD are way, way too big for any one player to manipulate.

Is there any way to reduce the US dependency on foreign markets, and visa-versa?? Global trade is OK as long as it is fair both ways, but the financial institutions linkage to the degree they seem to be, is hard to swallow.

Interesting that the stock market went up when the boondoggle was voted down but now is going down since they rammed it through.
Would someone explain this for me?

The LIBOR rates went sky high right after the "bailout" passed. Those don't go up all by themselves. Somebody raised them.

I suspect when the historians investigate this recent mess, they’ll discover that a few conniving individuals started fires that got way beyond their control. They hoped to sew the wind in American politics but reaped the whirlwind that brought the whole world to catastrophe. Soros should be hunted down with extreme prejudice!
