    Breaking News about GAMESTOP That they don’t want you to know about!!

    The Hedge funds that are getting spanked are going to pull every string to get their way. Shorting more than 100% adds a new risk. Hedge funds are going to complain that it is not fair that investors group together. That is absurd as a hedge fund is a group of investors. Hedge fund shorts have an expiry date. The individuals grouping together want to hold shares for a period of time, long enough for the shorts to expire. There are YouTube videos going back to July regarding this with Gamestop. The Hedge funds had fair warning.

    the fact that it is 140% shorted means there’s more than just the company nuts and bolts value in the company shares. its like owning a fridge of cold water bottles in the desert where there are lots of people dying of dehydration vs owning the same fridge of water in your average city. one is worth more to different people.

      I don’t get that. I get short selling. But how can you short sell a share that does not even exist?

    • Joe Reply

      i watched a video on naked shorting. thats how it can be more than 100% short

    • Sean O'Grady Reply

      @Mart Brighton It gets sold and reborrowed, there’s also naked shorting but that’s a bag of worms

    could a person maybe think about allowing used video games to be sent in to them, verify the quality of the disk, send credit to the seller, then turn those games into a bundle for a monthly loot crate? IDK just an idea for all these people who wanna talk about innovation

  6. James Boyer Reply

    Hmmm…well…If you do your research and really like a company for what they are doing and where they are headed…why is important to know who is long and who is short? At some percentage of ownership you have to disclose. At some point of shortership you should have to do the same. Maybe you do and I just don’t know.

  7. George Pagotelis Reply

    The financial market tests the liquidity of small users n their margin loans when they dropped 50%. if they didn’t sell they would lose everything. Are they worth 50% -75% less?!?!

    Hedge funds were tested by the people it’s no different. Regardless of that price. NOTHING to do with fundamentals what it worth. They were tested n you changed the rules blocking brokers all around the world.

    Cathie wood is one of the best investor of our time ..what strikes me about her the most is that she is so real and her research is spot on and above all she is transparent.

  10. Paul YOON Reply

    GME has fallen a lot. And investment experts and the media only say in words, “Small investments have won GME,” stressing that now sell it and leave. But did individual investors win? If individual investors had won, hedge fund companies should have immediately stopped the downward pressure and naturally caused GME shares to fall. That’s what individual investors won. You must have watched with your eyes how GME stock prices fell today. All of these stocks, including nakd, amc, gme, express, etc., were not natural declines, but still put downward pressure on short selling. That was a terrible act, too. They’ll be laughing behind you. Anyway, is this the right society? Is this also in the fair rules? As a small investor, I cannot help but ask this question.Small investors, let’s work together again.

    99% of all the companies that existed during the first industrial revolution, failed to transition into the 2nd industrial era economy. This time is expected to be even more dramatic due to the effects of digitization as well as lateral network effects and efficiency. If you are not investing in the future today? You are investing in going bankrupt.

    The market today was horrible. Manipulation for hedge funds and investing banks to get their shares adjusted while the retail investors and businesses sit quietly and watch the event unfold. Where is the SEC? The whole point of stocks was to allow companies grow and expand their businesses but now it has become a casino.

    Let’s be clear, Tesla was saved by Retail investors. There were malicious rumors being circulated on every media outlet. The strategy was to close the capital markets and let Tesla die. Cathy benefited from retail being the buyer of last resort. Read Matt Taibib’s book The Divide, you’ll see how hedge funds operate and the rules don’t apply to them.

    Cathie is smart but sadly her assets under management will eventually get so large she will revert to the mean. That may be in 6 months or 4 years – who knows. But once you are so large you no longer can be precise. But she wins in that scenario as she is taking 2% of assets so will be a billionaire. The normal people chasing the trend on the other hand will be paying big money for average results. Again not now – but then.

    Exchanging any type of currency is built on shared trust, we value the dollar because we trust its purchasing power, so the real question here is should you trust cryptocurrencies enough to jump into it and even invest in it. These things are subject to how much value we place on them since they are decentralized. Now do you really think the idea of digital currency would really not strive in a world where everything is becoming digital ? Your guess is as good as mine, the government is discouraging us from buying digital assets while they are pumping money into it because they know its the future. To get started in digital currencies you either need a broker or trading platform believe it or not if you’re a newbie you cant do without a broker all you need is to find a reliable one. One of such is paxybits. You can reach their US agent on the open line here

    Selfish of you Cathie to be on the side of short sellers. They almost put Tesla out of business and only a hand full of hedge funds cannot save Tesla if not for Elon doing triple time working. He was in a lot of pain physically and mentally because of all the FUD from these short sellers spouting lies. What he was doing was already difficult trying to tackle the engineering /technology side not to mention fighting the oil and gas industry. You are promoting short sellers so you could benefit from other people’s pain. You are truly a selfish person. That is a hedge fund mentality. I have observed this before. Seems to be a recurring theme.

    Kathy got something wrong. She said 140% of the float. It’s actually worse than that. It’s 140% of outstanding shares. Short sellers play all kinds of games with fraudulent shares.

    I honest to god think the GME ship was right about to take off to the 1000 dollar moon when the whole operation was shitcanned by RH. We broke through the 420 sell wall with ease the first try. That’s why we came so close to shaking the entire market last week, there was not enough money to cover at those prices, it would have gone past Citadel and into the backing banks. Then calls were made, RH turned off the bulk of American retail buys, and the shorts in the worst positions were allowed to slip through the cracks. We’re not meant to win this system, but I want to prove we can anyways.

  67. tipoomaster Reply

    I don’t think many people were really saying the entire concept of going short is bad, but clearly naked shorting and shorting 140% of how many shares are even available are greedy moves that can land you in trouble like this. Too bad they slipped through the cracks of what would have been the greatest generational wealth transfer when Robinhood turned off buys on the bulk of American retail investors.

    But gotta make sure the hedge fund people see them dissing DFV so they get access and future interviews.

    without short sellers stock prices would go so high that most people couldn’t afford them. Image a world where stocks can only go up? People will hold shares of terrible company’s just for the dividends, because they know it is unlikely the stock price will drop.
    Short selling is a necessary evil.

    • T O Reply

      Why are companies terrible? because they dont earn money, if they dont earn money they cant pay dividends. They´d die either way. Short sellers are not the only force in the market that let prices go down lmao

    • William Penn jr. Reply

      @T O You dont think Enron was a terrible company? and you cant say it didn’t earn a lot of money.
      Short sellers aren’t the only reason for a stock price to go down ( I didn’t say they were) but they are the main instigator. The only other reason is finding a better stock. If the entire market goes south then value would be relative so that would have no effect on ownership. There are always more net buyers than sellers unless the company has devastating news. People who own shares usually only sell when they expect the price will drop, that’s where short selling step in.

I didn’t think it was conceivable to make consistent win from trad!ng till I went over Zachary Buckley program for financial backers/beginners who need understanding on how trad!ng Bitcoin functions, to assist them with recuperating misfortune from the accident and furthermore stack up more bitcoin, since toward the end of last year till date I have made more than 10 BTC with Buckley help.
