    The first video tracks the volumes of high speed trading (HST) from 2007 to the present.

    Watch what happens after the day of the US credit downgrade on August 5, 2011.

    If this doesn't tell you that the proprietary trading desks of the big houses are not controlling the markets, nothing willl. I've actually been making my money in the market by piggybacking off their algorithms.

    If you can't beat 'em...

    The next video depicts the amount of the US Treasury bond market owned by the Fed vs. private ownership. There's a couple of real "Holy shit!" moments in it.

    The black part is Fed, the blue part is private. Black + Blue = 100%.

    The funny thing is I don't even need to see this kind of evidence to know what's going on, because it's been plainly obvious for years.
