Yesterday the Dow Jones crashed by 9 % in the panic following an erroneous stock exchange order by Citygroup. One single order thus can provoke sheer chaos and havoc. And what is true for the stock exchange, is true for markets in general.
It has been proven time and again that markets are an utterly volatile instrument, fed - more often than not - by greedy speculators. But "free" markets remain the main motor and regulator of economic activity, a cornerstone of the capitalistic system.
It might be safer to play Russian roulette than to trust the markets.
Other people's wars and greed are costing me money. I'm feeling disgusted and sick !
