TPP done?

The incompetence of market manipulation prevails. They can only make US and EU markets go up when they are closed. So, once again we start a rally on a gap. We had great hope that this was going to be the real thing, but unless EU and US markets open and close this gap of stupidity, it is just another of endless ploys to steal money from investors. They can run it as high as they wish, but we'll be back to yearly lows. Or worse. We will change all views from bullish to bearish and wait for the next selloff to try, once again, for an honest start

James, do you mean S&P has to come down to 1868 level to make a double bottom or come down more to cover the unbalance/gap? Does it also mean near future like tomorrow, it will test 1868 or lower?
