    I am just wondering...Is it really the big institutional investors? Is it the banks... like Goldman Sacks? Is it the ET traders? :confused: :) Who are really behind the scenes that drive the market up and down, making money no matter which direction?

    OR maybe I am wrong and there really is no one moving the market single-handedly, and it's just the collective market sentiment?

    If you look at a flock of thousands of birds, you will notice there is always some birds leading the way, is that analogous to the stock market?
