AMC FTDs Top 16.5 Million This Year Through May

AMC FTDs
Stock Market News: AMC FTDs top 16.5 million year-to-date

AMC’s FTDs have skyrocketed this year.

These FTDs (failure-to-deliver) are millions of orders unaccounted for in the lit market.

An FTD happens when a party is unable to deliver a tradable asset or meet a contractual obligation in a transaction.

Naked short sales and selling an asset without borrowing it first are two of the leading causes for failures to deliver.

I’m going to break down how many FTDs AMC has had every month this year so far.

Number of AMC FTDs per month

AMC FTD Chart
AMC FTD Chart – AMC Naked Shorting – AMC Failure to Deliver

AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. has had millions of FTDs this year.

Here they are broken down per month.

January 2022: 2,016,672

February 2022: 3,138,919

March 2022: 6,011,866

April 2022: 4,326,160

May: 2022: 1,091,540

Total: 16,585,157 so far.

The dollar amount of these FTDs mount up to hundreds of millions of dollars.

The alarming number of failure-to-delivers in AMC goes to show institutions shorting AMC stock are getting away with fraud.

They are creating naked shares to short AMC stock by essentially writing checks out that end up not clearing, resulting in FTDs.

In the process, short sellers are able to make profit without any accountability.

March had the highest amount of AMC FTDs so far with more than 6 million being recorded.

In March we saw AMC surge past $34 per share before it was halted and suppressed alongside GameStop, which surged to $199 per share.

Final thoughts

AMC Naked Shorting
AMC Naked Shorting – AMC Failure to Deliver

The grand scheme of naked shorting has been the most blatant market manipulation in finance history.

Yet regulators such as the SEC can’t seem to plug the loophole.

It’s up to retail investors to demand change in the markets to level the playfield.

NSCC-2022-003 could be a start to eliminating fire selloffs and potentially limiting naked short selling.

But it’s not enough.

The retail community must continue to raise awareness of these predatorial market conditions in hopes to create real change for all participants.

I’d love to know what you think.

    Frank, I was impressed by your article and submitted comments below to AG/DOJ thru their online website, and I just posted comments below on yahoo finance (Boeing – comments). If enough people complain, then maybe AG/DOJ/FBI/SEC/Congress will someday stop the fraud. If you have YTD data for FTDs on Boeing (BA), I’d be very interested in that data. Thanks.

    Per Frank Nez article, stock market fraud/naked shorting (selling fake shares) is still unaccountable
    in 2022 by SEC (or by brokers self-regulated FINRA). There is a major need for CAT (Consolidated
    Audit Trail) and for it to be run independently. The SEC and FINRA have failed to address most of
    the fraud (too tied to brokerages/lack independence to oversee a CAT system to review historical
    trading data and prosecute brokerages for manipulation/fraud). There are numerous examples of
    the naked shorting fraud: AMC, Boeing…., if can CAT/track old data check: Lucent Technology,
    Diamond Offshore…
    Thousands BA puts bought with tens of millions expiring 17 Jun (7,700 on 20 May, 5,700 26 May..),
    so appears a naked short attack planned before 17 Jun expiration.

    Will AG/DOJ stop the widespread manipulation/fraud/naked shorting/selling fake shares – that SEC ignores?
