    This was a poor explanation, in compharison with other CNBC videos. You could've talked about the market mechanisms that make currency manipulation possible and also give some examples of market manipulation in history; Talk about how that affects the life of people, entrepreneurs, politics and the market itself, too.
    I'm just saying it cause I know you guys can do better than that.

    Really nice, but here's how China actually manipulates its currency.
    If a US compay wants to buy in China, it needs to exchange USD for Yuan. If a European, Turkish or Japanese wants to buy from China, it needs to do the same, hence, the Chinese Yuan will increase in value while the USD, Turskish Lira, Japanese Yen and Euro will decrease in value as they are being "sold".
    What China does, therefore, is the opposite: buying exchange currency with its own in order to one side, keep the price of USD, €, Yen and Lira high, and keep the price of the Yuan low.
    Summary: while everyone is buying Chinese Yuan which would normally increase its value, China is buying all other currencies with Yuan to keep the value of the other currencies up and the one of Yuan down.

    Trump is the biggest manipulator. One tweet can send a stock or currency UP or DOWN. His buddies are getting bloody rich

    So, I've watched a few of these, now. I've learned 1 main thing: CNBC is almost as agenda-driven and biased as TYT.
    Let us know when you want to talk about the truth, instead of your 'version' of it.
