One major reason for current price-action: targeted commodity deflation

  1. Just an idea that popped into my head. Though the gold market is easy to manipulate because of its size I've heard many traders say that due to its size, the Oil market is nearly impossible to push, aside from bombings, OPEC, etc.

    My question is this: is it reasonable to suspect someone(thing) using the equity markets to drain liquidity from the Oil market?(i.e. crater the equities and force the funds long commodities to sell their winners to cover equity losses/redemptions/margin calls) using the recent "bailout" as a cover?
