Look at the chart below and tell me who you think was in control.  I'll tell you who I think was in charge: Mr Market was in charge, and the direction Mr Market wanted to go was down, and so down we went.  If the PPT jumped in there – it simply didn't matter.  These are some of the nastiest red candles you can see.  From where I sit, that's a lotta plunge, and no protection that I could see."

Is the FED finally going to allow the Market to seek it's own level?  No. That is just not what they do.
