I don't know if I've ever said it before, but it's NOT really us who invest, who hope to make a profit [those of us who do and most people do or have at some point in their life ARE speculators], it IS however the MANIPULATORS that make prices move higher. I don't have the money to buy 1000 oil contracts or gasoline contracts, hell, I don't even have the money to buy one, and most only buy three, five or 10 which is nothing, and the banks along with quite a few others buy thousands of contracts, options or shares which gives the attention to a stock or commodity and gets more buying and moves it's price up. Add the news articles they feed nowadays, and you can expect prices to move up or down as they do at times. MANIPULATORS are the ones, not the little guy who is the speculator.
