    My grandfather, who refused to turn in his gold when the big guys took it away, sounds just like this guy. It’s the same thinking of the democrats only the wealthy and powerful can steal money or elections. When will the people wake up?

    If you think the banks are going to let us take back our wealth, you’re gravely mistaken. They will wait until we sell our gold and silver and then they will HYPER-INFLATE the currency SO FAST that you won’t know what happened. They will be the ones with all the precious metals and we will be left with nothing but USELESS PAPER CURRENCY. HOLD YOUR PRECIOUS METALS!

    For those who MISSED OUT on the big push with GME and AMC last week… I checked the WSB Reddit and saw NOK on their list of stocks to push. As you know, Robinhood, Webull, and others made it impossible to buy those (and some other) stocks Thurs/Fri … but Blackrock has just increased their share size in NOKIA on Friday by 333,000,000 shares, and also many chat rooms I see are buying Nokia Friday and still high level of interest for Monday. In other words, if you missed out on the GME run, you might want to look at NOK. Ray Blanco also promoting it on his newsletter. FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m long NOK for 800 shares and my target is $20 but some talk of WallStBets pushing it to $50.

    PEEPS! I HATE TO SAY THIS. He has not recommended a stock in over a year!! Stocks are going to tank at least 50% this year because 1) The economy is 10 times worse than the Great Depression 2) Almost nobody is working 3) Business is like 30% what it was precovid 4) Value of the dollar will be dropping like a brick 5) Stocks are almost twice the price it was 1 year ago What do you do with your $ ? Put it in your refrigerator or bank earning 0% interest. It is better than losing 50% 60% 70% in stocks this year. SORRY I HAVE TO BREAK IT TO YOU.

    Louis has been my main choice on this particular @/shortsellingsqueeze and they could not have found a more informed person because Louis also owns a Brick and Mortar business in New York City: He has Skin in the Fame. and in the game, also. Fame is because this will cause another Black Friday like the fall of 1929.

    We could bring the whole corrupt system down with coordination. But this paper won’t do it, physical silver would be the perfect instrument to right the free market ship right now. If every “everyday Joe” bought 100 ounces of physical silver for their savings tomorrow the biggest short in the history of the world would unwind.

    Louis has very eloquently hit the nail on the head when he expressed the view that Wall Street has been taught a great lesson by the so-called kids; hopefully this is just the beginning to hold the greedy, corrupt traders and hedge funds to account and make them pay for their sins

    The fact that it’s still holding at $300 instead of $10 has more to do with open option trades than the fact that there’s any real value here whether technical or fundamental.

    Why will no one admit to themselves that clearinghouse requirements are a legitimate reason to limit trading? It’s this law people! Robin Hood can’t just flout the law because they don’t like it!!!

    Louis provides the best explanation I’ve seen anywhere online. Most channels are rushing to defend hedge funds, and most non-mainstream reporters / commentators are blindly demonizing short sellers everywhere.

    the price is holding, in spite of demand being stopped. is because the supply did not increase when the demand stopped. people are just holding. if they sell. then it drops

    Sorry man, but the short sellers aren’t going to get punished (except for what WSB did to them). That just doesn’t happen to people who give $800K to Janet Yellen.
