Yentervention – G7 Style! (Ponzi Finance)

This is not "Commie talk" people. If you are not one of the Forbes 400 you are either a victim or a victim-in-waiting because what do you think the 400 will do when the bottom 90% are bled dry?

Apple Google Judging from the relative volatility and the extremely wide holdings of this find company with a near cult like following, if price action breaks it will break very hard - and this time there may be fundamental justification for it.

Trade Against The Retail Herd 18th Mar

Intervention. For the first time in a decade we're seeing multi-nation intervention to help weaken the Yen, as a beleaguered Japan works to recover from a multi-faceted disaster.

Catching Up With Technical Analyst to the Stars, Charles Nenner

Charles Nenner If you have not made your year by now you are dead meat. Many of 2011’s big moves have occurred, and there aren’t going to be many fireworks for the rest of the year.
