3:30-4:00pm Rally Time for the Market Magicians Yet Again

Yet again, the market magicians engineered another run into the close. This seemingly daily action is probably starting to build on itself as whomever is doing it, is doing it, so traders are jumping on board this "trend" at the end of the day which amplifies the action into the close - just what the market magicians want I suppose. Plus, today we ripped commodities lower, dollar higher and limited equity damage with that last 15 minute jig. Well played. Funny thing is if we continuously sold off huge into the close (in the last 15 minutes) I bet CNBC and the media army would be talking about hedge fund manipulation and the need for the SEC to investigate, limit short selling, etc. But, since it is an up move - no reason to question the irregularity. The financial media is a puppet show in my opinion (for the most part at least).

Who is this cloaked figure continually providing the late day bid? What do all the traders out there think of the "bull"dogs continually being let out about 3:30pm?

I think this is something that deserves a little dialogue as I am sure some people will say it's a conspiracy and others will say "that's just the market" so deal with it...
