Financial Markets Computerized Front Running Using High Frequency Trading Programs and Fraud / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the SEC is busy investigating Goldman Sachs, it might want to look into another Goldman-dominated fraud: computerized front running using high-frequency trading programs.

Market commentators are fond of talking about “free market capitalism,” but according to Wall Street commentator Max Keiser, it is no more. It has morphed into what his TV co-host Stacy Herbert calls “rigged market capitalism”: all markets today are subject to manipulation for private gain.

Financial Industry Regulations, There Needs To Be Consequences / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRob a bank and you know you’ll go to prison if you’re caught. Fail to pay your taxes and you’ll personally pay a large penalty and perhaps spend time in prison. Drive your car recklessly and you know you’ll pay if you’re caught. Make bad or careless decisions in your business and the result could be bankruptcy.

Greece Debt Bailout Ulterior Motive? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Since back in December, when Fitch Ratings Inc. slashed its credit rating on Greece's debt to below investment grade for the first time in 10 years, there's been a mind-numbing flood of media coverage of that European country's debt crisis.

And yet, despite high-volume of high-level media coverage, none of the stories have picked up on a very basic - yet very key - fact...

(NYSE: GS) say the civil fraud charges the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has levied against the investment-banking giant are without foundation, and are politically timed to push President Barack Obama's bank-reform agenda.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne look at yet one more story about how the world should assess and assign blame for the ongoing financial crisis, this one appearing over at the Wall Street Journal Real Time Economics Blog the other day titled No Resolution in Sight in Fed Blame Game, has belatedly brought me to the conclusion that, for years now, nearly everybody has been asking the wrong question about blame for the financial crisis.

Nazarbayev’s Successful Diplomacy in Kyrgyzstan Signals Deeper Strategic Shifts / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent crisis and instability in Kyrgyzstan, highlighted the fragility of security and the potential weakness of the political systems throughout the region and exposed new dimensions in the conduct of Kazakhstan’s foreign policy that may well prove pivotal for US energy interests in the Caspian Sea region. These complexities, often disguised or downplayed by the national governments in the region, attest to the deep political fault lines running through Eurasia as well as the potential for events in one state to ignite potential cross-border discontent and instability elsewhere.

Revolution in Central Asia: Who's Next? / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn April 7, 2010 the President of Kyrgyzstan Kurmanbek Bakiyev fled the capital city of Bishkek that was under a state of emergency after antigovernment protesters started clashing with security forces following incidents that started in the Northern city of Talas, close to the Kazakhstan border. By the end of April 7, Radio Free Europe Radio Liberty was reporting 40 dead and 400 wounded, numbers that have over doubled since. In this context, one can only wonder which country in Central Asia could be next, if any, and which Central Asian leader could find himself out of a job and possibly on an airplane.

Propaganda from the Mainstream Press on the SEC-Goldman Case / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI want you to read an article by the Associated Press. As you will see, it was very deficient, hardly critical of the SEC and the banking fraud, and left out key issues.  

This is just another example how the media brainwashes the public. I run across this type of deceit all day every day. The article is in italics. My comments follow.

He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country. Now there's another thing I want you to remember. I don't want to get any messages saying that "we are holding our position." We're not holding anything. Let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy. We're going to hold onto him by the nose and we're going to kick him in the ass. We're going to kick the hell out of him all the time and we're going to go through him like crap through a goose!”

"High Frequency" Financial Trading is Wall Street High-tech Highway Robbery / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) knows that High-Frequency Trading (HFT) manipulates the market and bilks investors out of tens of billions of dollars every year. But SEC chairman Mary Schapiro refuses to step in and take action. Instead, she's concocted an elaborate "information gathering" scheme, that does nothing to address the main problem. Schapiro's plan--to track large blocks of trades by large institutional investors-- is an attempt to placate congress while the big Wall Street HFT traders continue to rake in obscene profits. It achieves nothing, except provide the cover Schapiro needs to avoid doing her job.

The Criminalization of Wall Street, Lynching Bankers is not the Solution / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Global_Research

Six out ten Americans have a hostile view of Wall Street, according to a recent poll. And this survey was taken before the news last week that the US government is charging top Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs and its vice president with fraud over trade in mortgages and derivatives. The charge is serious, given that Goldman Sachs is accused of being aware that there would be an imminent collapse in the US housing market. Nevertheless, the bank went ahead anyway, merrily trading its toxic assets.

Goldman Sachs and the Mega Banks: Too Big To Obey The Law / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSimon Johnson writes: On a short-term tactical basis, Goldman Sachs clearly has little to fear.  It has relatively deep pockets and will fight the securities “Fab” allegations tooth and nail; resolving that case, through all the appeals stages, will take many years.  Friday’s announcement had a significant negative impact on the market perception of Goldman’s franchise value – partly because what they are accused of doing to unsuspecting customers is so disgusting.  But, as a Bank of America analyst (Guy Mozkowski) points out this morning, the dollar amount of this specific allegation is small relative to Goldman’s overall business and – frankly – Goldman’s market position is so strong that most customers feel a lack of plausible alternatives.

Moscow Ascending, How Turkey’s New Axis With Russia Affects U.S. Interests / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have, in the past year, entered an entirely new dynamic in Eastern Mediterranean and South-East European strategic affairs. We are in a period and a region in which Russia, not the West, is taking the key initiatives and has much of the advantage. This is particularly significant given that Russian policymaking receives scant attention in US and other Western media, and remains as opaque to Western analysts as it was during the Cold War era when Russia was veiled by an Iron Curtain. At least during the Cold War, the West threw its best intellects into attempting to understand Russia and the Soviet Union.
