Zero Hedge: Stocks would be flat without after-hours goosing


12:09p ET Thursday, December 24, 2009

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Zero Hedge's Tyler Durden, less well known as Dan Ivandjiiski, has just charted how all the gain in the U.S. stock market since September 14 has been caused by after-hours and presumably manipulative trading on small volume. An audit of the Federal Reserve, such as has been proposed by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, which well may be enacted soon, might explain this and shed much light on the U.S. government's "management of perceptions" of the economy, of which the suppression of the price of gold is a big part. The Zero Hedge commentary is headlined "A Three-Month Flat Market? Yes ... If You Exclude The Constant After-Hours Manipulation" and you can find it here:
