U.S. Government Juicing Up the Stock Market? - More Evidence of Futures Market Manipulation

Excellent interview with Charles Biderman of TrimTabs Research, where he outlines his theory that the Fed is probably juicing up the stock market through futures trading. We at the Firecracker Report have evidence this in our report titled S&P Futures/ETFs Being Used to Ramp up Equity Markets - Market Manipulation Evidence from Intraday Trading Profiles. Since the futures market allow for up to 100x leverage, it is really easy to pump the underlying asset class be it commodities (e..g. oil), stocks or bonds.
