I'm not sure there is a correlation, but if there is, it would be the citizens showing through the market that they have more faith in the American people than the president. They are symbolically demonstrating in the loudest way possible that we depend on ourselves and our free market and not his socialized view of the economy. It shouted at him when the universal health care bill became bogged in committee and then the market surged a little. When the bill looks like it will pass, the market contracts. Free market all the way!!!!!
