Did Spooks Spook the Market? Kevin Freeman on iSpy Radio
Just imagine if you had the ability to create panic in the stock market like a precision bomb. You could make a lot of money when the sheep begin to stampede. Last week we had a bumpy ride with the Dow Jones and other markets showing incredible volatility and the timing of it was rather suspicious.
Think about it. President Trump's approval numbers start to climb. Trump's new fed chair was officially appointed. CNN points to the stock downcast and that it was all Trump's fault as they ducked out of Trump's speech. And, of course, it sure took a lot of heat off the highly revealing Democrat-Russian collusion memos.
Was it just normal market volatility? Or could it have been manipulation? And, if so, by whom?
Remember 2008? It was proven that Russia had manipulated the big sell off on the stock market at that time—which actually had to be forcibly shut down by the government to stop a collapse. The panic that ensued. Then Presidential candidate, John McCain rushing back to Washington.
Long-time listeners of I Spy know that, yes, there was indeed manipulation in our markets in 2008—by Russia. (It might very well have been brought down if the Chinese hadn't backed out at the last moments.) And it helped to usher in Obama's presidency, who just happened to seem rather calm about the whole thing. So was last week's market volatility was normal or staged?
To figure this out we bring in Kevin Freeman, a world renowned expert on economic warfare and author of, Secret Weapon: How Economic Terrorism brought down the US Stock Market. You'll hear just how open these systems are to manipulation. We also discuss automatic trading algorithms, "robo-brokers," that go in and buy and sell when triggers and market conditions are met. And if those are at work, how easily can they be manipulated to cause crashes?
Let's not forget: George Soros has made an awful lot of money—not when the market goes up, but when it goes down.
