What Works; Individual Stocks: Cramer's Best Blogs

So, the rally gained steam and people realized that rates can go both ways and Bernanke's not happy with the velocity of the move.

Now, on to the charge of manipulation. My take's pretty clear. The truth is an abstraction. When it comes to the market it really doesn't matter if something is true, what matters is that people believe it is true. Does Bernanke really have the power to contain rates? Maybe, maybe not. But with rates down yesterday and Bernanke squawking, how can you believe that he is impotent. More important, how do you know that the trader next to you doesn't believe he's for real and says we gotta cover and we gotta cover now?

Which all comes back to the first point about whether one market is true and the other market is phony. I have lived with this ridiculous dogma for 14,000 phony Dow points. I have lived with this fanciful judgment during the fabulous runs for so many stocks. All I can say is that nothing's phony if a bid can be drilled for a stock that moved up big on the phoniness. Nothing. If you are able to sell a big piece of merchandise at a good price, what's phony about it?

Of course, my view is viewed as having no rigor vs. the views of those who know it is all a big, rigged market. But the joke's on them. You see, I don't care who rigs it. I don't care what's real. What's wrong? What's different? What's fresh? What's stale? What's known? What's not known?

All I care about is what's working. That's because I am not a bull or a bear. I am a practical person who accepts manipulation on both sides, who understands that people lie and cheat and do whatever's necessary to make money. I have said that before and gotten in big trouble for it by speaking about how I have seen it done, not how I do it or did. I just want it to be known that it happens and I want people to be able to see it and game it for what it is worth, a wave to ride to profits, and nothing more.
