Also I doubt the Chinese have enough money to short our market makers. They can't even keep their own dumb market afloat. Besides, we have the best market makers, the very best, and everyone knows it. They're all talking about how good our market makers are.
You're telling me that China can't summon up a few billion dollars to use in highly leveraged options contracts to bang down the US market?
I'm sure they could afford it, esp because they would be making money here.
What I don't know is if it would be legal or hideable.
