Click on the daily tab on the graph. 10,000 shares sold of bush futures drove the price to zero for a few minutes.
The joke is on them, anyone who buys at these depressed prices should be able to turn a big profit in a short period of time.
I am not surprised
Crap! Missed out on it. Would've loved to take some of this weirdo market maniupulator's money.
OK-how do I buy?
Has the number leveled out or is it still low?
The price is already back up into the 40's. But basically, if you put in an ask at, say, 20 then this person does this trick again, you can get bush futures at 20. As soon as the price pops back up you can probably sell them for 40 or 50, turning a 100%+ profit in just a few minutes.
It is for this reason that tricks like this can not work long term.
Anybody notice that the stock market had double digit loses for a couple days (I think because the trend was that Kerry might win.)
Now today, Greenspans words helped, I know, but polls are up for Bush and so is the stock market.
What is it now? Did we miss out?
What is the raw dollar value of all contracts ?
Question for you. I don't follow this very carefully, but I believe the other political futures market, the Iowa one, limits the $ an individual can invest...thus it would be a more meaningful tool?...have you every correlated the two graphs?
i was monitoring it....was wild, back up to 54 now
I believe Rush mentioned the trading on his show today. That could have something to do with the bounce in trading.
Something is fishy. They are showing a low of 10.0 NO WAY a contract traded at ten. I think they are mixing their BID/ASK values into the "Price Chart"
Does this really matter at all?
Rush was talking about this site today. That may have something to do with it.
Back up to 55 now, To market manipulator: Well that was a good use of 10k$ now wasn't it? Do it again!
