There have been a couple of these halts this week. In each case the issue appears to have been that Goldman Sachs was about to lose some money. On Monday they had a bad position in JPMorgan Chase futures, but managed to get it all wiped out. One wonders what they might have lost money on today, but are getting fixed. The only place to get any real info on this kind of market-rigging corruption is ZeroHedge. But rest assured, the markets are rigged and not in your favor.

Probably a good idea to slow it down a few times a week to reduce the advantage of traders with super computers making millions of trades per week.

Can and will anyone wake up in this country and for that matter around the world? The whole stock trading system on all fronts is TOTALLY corrupt, inefficient and out dated. Right down to our congressmen and women that are able to benefit "allegedly" of course to some information we the average American citizen aren't privy to. And yes, the name "Goldman Sachs" rears its ugly head again. THIS HAS TO STOP OR WE WILL NO LONGER BE AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE COUNTRY! And sadly maybe its too late. I just can't believe this constant manipulation and concentration of wealth into the hands of a very few. And remember fellow Americans, a good number of these FEW aren't exactly residing within our borders.
