The large and institutional investors are getting rich on the backs of the small.
    The other problem is the price of stocks is NOT based on earnings but on the loose money policies of the government.

The large and institutional investors seem to have a heads up on when the government changes these policies and get out of the market before the market drops. The large investors gets gets out at the expense of small investors.
