Massive fraud is going on in the stock markets. Big players are manipulating the stock markets. They are investing their own "rich profits" earned over the years to keep the stock markets alive. By now DOW Jones should have reached 3,000. Who is investing money in stock markets when all the giant banks and companies are bankrupt and suffering massive losses?. No profits means no dividends. There is no real money just Ponzi schemes. If the stock markets shut down, big players will be bankrupt and begging on the streets. Big players and governments are allies for "dead-men walking stock markets" The stock markets died 3 months back when Giant banks and companies became bankrupt and received Trillion dollars bail-out. Bankrupt companies do not survive for long since they are already bankrupt. They will shut down.
