    This whole thing is pretty interesting. All it took was shutting down travel, bars, restaurants, concerts and daily human interaction to make the people realize how much power they have

    No idea on whether this is a good thing or not, but I’m enjoying watching it unfold!

    I wonder if this will cause them to give up the method, or if they will just bail out the loser and still allow shorting to continue. If this goes to regulation that ends this form of fixed gambling on the destruction of others then awesome. However, given the size and durability of the rich I am pretty sure they can outlast the pranksters who cannot sustain the losses so they can keep the income redistribution to the rich through the use of shorting.

    It seems to me there was a huge mistake made by an all in on a particular stock by a particular hedge fund operator. If this shit was diversified the losses would not have threatened the existence of this hedge fund. Instead it seems like they caught one greedy operator with way too much of their ass hanging out. Why give up the rest of the scam because one person got screwed, especially when there is no way for the poor to maintain the attack over all.

    Apparently a second hedge fund has called it quits and the two combined have lost billions.

    up $100 last night in after hours trading. Fun to watch, but T's right. The bubble will burst and the little guys will be left holding the bag (sorry, I don't know any good market metaphors either).

    They seem to periodically suspend trading when it dives. Down $80. There goes my bottle of single malt.

    Sold at $268. Lost $300 for my little play. T was right.

    suspended at $237 now.

    Millions of small traders are crying in their suds now. The short sellers are laughing all the way to the bank.

    Gonna have to jerk off with a coke to pornhub now. Don't do this at home.

    Apparently Robinhood has removed GameStop and AMC from their trading platform, which seems like a terrible move

    Not only that, it looks like robinhood is selling people's stock in $GME without their consent.

    I don't think that's possible. It could be they're only processing sell orders...

    it's people fighting naked market manipulation. The rules go out the window when the rothchilds can't buy their 900th private island.

    We found out with the Wolf of Wall Street that it's ok to screw the poor or middle class. But, if you try to screw the rich, you will lose everything.

    Of course you base your knowledge of the pitfalls of economics off of the wolf of Wall Street. Of course
