6 Corporations Control 90% of the Media in America
“Some might ask why this matters. The problem with these six mega-corporations is that they are controlled by a handful of billionaires and a few distasteful foreign governments that do not have the best interests of your well being in mind. These corporations own the US legacy media outlets (e.g., CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc) and most of the larger online US news sites. They have, in my opinion, been quite effective at brainwashing a huge segment of society with regard to the important political issues of our day.” –Anonymous
Market manipulation & media manipulation are like two peas in a pod. The manipulation of mainstream media is a key factor in how the markets can be so easily controlled and manipulated, as the market is nothing but a reflection of the mainstream mind.
Concentration of media ownership is KEY to mainstream market manipulation.
Market Manipulation & Mainstream Events
This is nothing more than a massive mind game. The mainstream media outlets are RIGGED, we have been brainwashed to follow every suggestion they place onto the screens we watch. Here is a perfect example below of CNN mainstream news outlet giving a tutorial on “How to buy Ripple” at $2.57 , then months later released the “How to sell Ripple” tutorial when it valued only $0.71 cents. This is not a coincidence, this is controlled information decided upon by a select few.
Below is another great example of the release of news events vs how price action reacted. We can see an obvious induction to sell based upon the titles of the news events. Shortly after, a major reversal to the upside hitting stops of the sellers induced by the news event.
The market can be so easily manipulated during these events because the mainstream media outlets have such a massive impact on the minds of the mainstream trading herd.
The graph above depicts the 9/11 terrorist attack and how it affected the USD index.
~Notice the consolidation that took place weeks before the 9/11 event.
~Notice the breakout of the consolidation to the upside, inducing retail dumb money to buy the USD.
~Notice 7 days after the breakout to the upside inducing the dumb money to sell, there is a “surprise” terrorist attack in the USA causing massive dumping on the USD index. (a week before inducing retail buyers into the market)
There is a common theme in market manipulation. The need for the market to consolidate BEFORE the event, then INDUCE in the opposite direction of the intended move.
Consolidation (Problem) > Induction (Reaction) > Reversal (Solution)
In the event of almost every major reversal, there is an induction in the direction opposite to that of the actual intended move.
Above we see another example of the consolidation that occurs before the manipulation can happen. The consolidation allows for a “breakout” to occur, which is in most cases the induction in the opposite direction to the intended move.
We live in a world where 90% of everything we consume is controlled by a handful of companies.
We encourage you to do more research into this for yourself to understand just how important the media is to the people manipulating the markets.
Thanks for reading.
