Anatomy of a Government Intervention in Index Stocks

One thing you can be assured, goverment intervention in financial panics is always assured. And since the depression, most MATURE economies of the world have survived (except Japan - but that has more to do with their culture and higher business ethics)

I traded indexes, options and equities for a period of almost 10 years; turning over millions of dollars a day. THE LTC and Asian/Russian Currency crisis gave me first hand observation of goverment intervention in the markets.

Here is an analysis of such a historical time as 1998 and the Hang Seng index. We are stable in the markets in the short term becouse of multiple interventions and forced short squeezes in currencies and bond markets.
