Dark Pools of Capital Profiting from Coronavirus Stock and Financial Markets CRASH!

Stock-Markets

This analysis seeks to conclude in detailed trend forecasts for US and UK Coronavirus Infections and deaths into the end of April 2020. The importance of which being to act as indicators for the primary driver for stock market trend since Mid February. Where as was the case with my preceding forecasts into the end of March, deviations against the Coronavirus trend warned of worse prospects for stock prices as the UK and US FAILED to follow the South Korean model of containing the pandemic, instead either proved completely incompetent in doing nothing despite having had well over a months advance warning of what to expect. Or perhaps by design so as to allow the virus to infect the general population as it was deemed to be impossible to prevent in the long-run given the movement of people, goods and services and so a quick sharp deadly shock was deemed to be the most cost effective solution.


Whatever the thought process at work, the US and UK governments have now sown the seeds for a far worse Covid-19 Pandemic than I had originally imagined would transpire over a month ago, when for instance the UK had just 9 cases and no deaths! With the stock market indices still trading at new all time highs. Instead, the virus was repeatedly allowed to enter into our nations and grab a foot hold, silently, quietly infecting hundreds then thousands, all whilst the likes of the CDC delayed procuring tests that worked! With similar behaviour by Public Health England, why?

Was it because the dark pools of capital were busy placing short market bets because they understood the consequence of the governments failing to act competently would encourage an exponential curve for the pandemic?

Many big players definitely got VERY rich on the Corona Crash! Let's hope the clueless investigative journalists who did not see this trend coming are able to dig deep into what transpired in the lead up to Coronavirus Crisis, to find out exactly who got paid to do what? Of course in our crypto currency age it's going to be difficult to track the transactions. But make no mistake, THIS OUTBREAK IN THE UK AND US WAS NOT INEVITABLE! BUT THEY CHOSE NOT TO DO ANYTHING FOR A WHOLE MONTH! WHICH EVEN INCLUDED THE CDC SABOTAGING THEIR OWN TESTS! I am no conspiracy theorist but the evidence speaks for itself.

The Dark pools of capital have once more been at work looking to capitalise on unfolding events that they have attempted to prod in the direction that generates the most profit after stealthily having gained market exposure during February, for instance by encouraging proponents of herd immunity to infect government decision making processes so as to maximise Coronavirus Infections and market chaos just as they had done in the lead up to the stocks bear market bottom of March 2009, by promoting fear whilst accumulating stocks, all whilst the perma clueless were busy propagandising Dow heading 50% lower.

15th March 2009 - Stealth Bull Market Follows Stocks Bear Market Bottom at Dow 6,470

The bursting of the bubble after the pools of manipulated monies have taken their cash off the table has subsequently wiped out the value of the all stocks to bargain basement levels. However this now means that the unregulated hedge funds are at it again accumulating towards the NEXT mega STEALTH bull market. Why is it a stealth bull market ? Because everyone, and I MEAN literally everyone is CALLING THIS A BEAR MARKET RALLY TO AVOID BUYING INTO ! Everyone has given up. When in effect THIS IS HIGHLY PROBABLY THE MARKET BOTTOM !

This is how the rich get richer, ultimate ruthlessness. Even prepared to sacrifice millions in the pursuit of easy money trends and so the dark pools of capital saw an opportunity for huge profits if only the CDC and its kind failed to do their jobs, go to sleep for a month so that the virus could stealthily infect and spread to spark financial panic. Remember the $600 trillion derivatives market is ZERO SUM GAME! For every loser there is a winner, which given the 33% stock market crash then there are going to be a lot of BIG WNNERS out there!

Who Sold it SHORT near the top and then WIll Buy it LONG near the bottom.
