Are we reaching a tipping point in the stock market?

4 million fewer jobs from peak but corporate profits at record levels. Consumer confidence dips yet stocks keep moving up.

from MyBudget360.com:

As the Dow flirted with 14,000 and the S&P 500 hit 1,500 the typical American is losing their confidence and also reflects a stock market that diverges from the interests of the Americans worker.  Given that many of the S&P 500 companies earn a sizable portion of their profits abroad, it is hard to see a direct correlation to the health of the American worker.  In fact, the middle class continues to face a difficult future.  It was interesting to see consumer confidence fall while stock prices move up.  But what we do see is a growing class of Americans stuck in poverty.  The startling high number of Americans on food stamps does not seem to be inching lower (we are over 47 million).  Yet corporate profits are at record levels.  Goldman Sachs for example earned $2.8 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012.  How is it feasible that stocks continue to move higher while real wealth gains to working and middle class Americans seem stagnant?

    It’s really very easy to understand it when you know their MO. Those 4 million and millions more have been withdrawing/cashing in their 401K’s and IRA’s early to survive over the last 10 years.How the deception is perpetrated;redemptions continue out of the stock market, The Plunge Proptection Team aka PPT under the auspices of the Treasury have direct access to the “Exchange Stablization Fund” 50-100 billion dollars.Through specific dealers/brokers, the PPT riggs/manipulates/leads the futures and stock markets,usually at specific times of the day when volume is low and indexes turn/roll over.This covert Op use to occur occasionally.Dueto continual weak markets and low volume,theyare almost in there daily to maintain the illusion. They may allow an occasional 10-15-20% sell-off to maintain appearances.They will not allow a full blown sell-off crash unless TPTB intend for one.They also use the same MO to suppress certain indexes, ie Gold,Silver and their shares,just as has been seen for the last 1-1/2yrs.All Markets are rigged and have been since post 1987 when Greenspan the PPT in an attempt to prevent another 1987,25% plunge. With the 700-800 trillion + derivadives overhang,we shall see if it will work as designed.
