I hate to be such a negative person, but the GDP numbers this morning seem entirely manipulated. The recent number is *better* than expected at -1% annualized versus a forecast of -1.5%, but then you look to see that the prior number was revised downward to -6.4% versus -5.5%. When I have watched these “revisions” on jobless, GDP, CPI etc they have all been revised for the worse. This suggests to me that it’s all just a way to manipulate sentiment, make the present seem slightly better than the past at all costs to make people feel as if things are getting a lot better. Then a month or two later you can put the actual data there. Isn’t that fraudulent market manipulation from the SEC’s perspective?
