I'd like to ask a question, it might be a stupid one. Is it possible for Fed, or maybe for 1 tier bank(banks), to move the price down by buying, and to move it up by making sells. The reason I'm asking, because sometimes I have a feeling that this is happening, from time to time on the market. If it's impossible, which most likely is, then just say No.
The feds do interfere with market. Especially when dollar gets bad news and then strengthens instead of weakening, you know the PPT is in action.
Hope isn't a viable investment vehicle.
