Who would know when multi billion dollar pension funds need re balancing ? The Crooks that run them, wall street investment banks thru the board of each fund. They have set % of bonds vs stocks and need to maintain those balanced %'s. Thus, even when the market dives, they buy stocks to even it out. That is what this was about. Just an example with a CLOSE to or semi close outcome. Actually what happened so much in 2007 and 2008 and now doing it in the public eye without any recourse. Imagine you must stay within 10% of each stocks vs bonds. Stocks drop 20% as they have this quarter, thus, you overall VALUE of the fund is heavy in Bonds because of the loss in stocks. You then sell the Bonds which pull in a steady 2% to buy stocks which have fallen 20%. What this did was drive the market up 5%. The stocks in these portfolios are a KNOWN stock buy the sellers and buyer for the fund, thus, they can short each given stock and watch it drop. In fact, if it goes back the 5% increase of today, or somewhere close, it is logical to assume that the 64B has changed hands from the POOR to the RICH in one day with that drop. Just how crooked is wall street going to be up front like this ? Why would any fund manager force a buy into this horrible market knowing that it SHOULD fall further to equal true value ? They are going to force these PENSION funds into solvency and force cuts in payout while that very money rolls into pockets of 50K different people and away from 50M.
