The lawsuit regarding the D-Limit order type is taking place on Monday, October 25th. Citadel is suing the SEC arguing that this new order type from the IEX Exchange will harm tens of millions of retail investors, via Reuters.
But will it?
Let’s dive deep into what the IEX Exchange is supposed to do for retail investors, how the D-Limit order will innovate the market, and what it will mean for AMC and GME.
Welcome to Franknez.com – I’ve been doing some more digging and what’s occurring with Citadel and the SEC is a lot bigger than I thought. This is an important time in history.
Let’s get started!
Impact Of IEX Exchange In Markets
So, what is the IEX Exchange anyway? IEX, or the “investors exchange” is a fair and transparent stock exchange dedicated to investor and issuer protection.
There are more than 150 broker members using it and around 10,643 unique symbols currently being traded.
The innovation behind the IEX Exchange relies heavily upon it’s D-Limit order type that is supposed to outperform displayed order prices on other exchanges.
This means that predatory strategies such as market arbitrage, where high frequency firms profit from lower prices in foreign exchanges, will no longer be able to do so.
High frequency trading has been used against retail investors to not only gain better prices on stock from other ‘slow loading’ exchanges, but by also using this advantage to sell stock significantly cheaper.
So when you find an exchange that is showing lower prices, hedge funds betting against certain tickers may borrow high in another exchanges while benefiting the difference from selling the stock in those displaying lower prices.
The D-Limit order uses AI technology that provides more consistent and accurate data across all exchanges.
This order type is going to provide high quality prices in the market and is truly innovative and for retail.
How Will The IEX Exchange Affect Citadel Securities?
In short, Citadel Securities and other high frequency trading firms will lose a lot of money.
The reason being is they are making money every second from using this high frequency trading technology to their benefit by getting better prices than anyone else in the market.
The IEX Exchange would put Citadel Securities in the same courtyard as retail investors, leveling the playfield.
IEX would create a foundation for a fair market and Citadel Securities is suing the SEC for it.
The use of high frequency trading is not protecting retail investors, on the contrary it’s betting against them and the SEC has recognized this saying, “Citadel enjoys unfair advantages over other participants”.
Fighting against this order type is like getting angry for having to share your cake at your own birthday party.
Citadel processes close to 50% of the entire market’s orders. The company would face massive losses from eliminating high frequency trading alone.
Not to mention, the heavily shorted stock they have been betting against.
What Would IEX Mean For AMC and GME?
We know that high frequency trading gives these firms a trading edge over heavily shorted stock.
They’re able to locate and identify foreign exchanges where the price is significantly lower, and use these means to cheat the system by buying back borrowed shares low; profiting the difference from selling high and driving these stocks down.
IEX would seal these cracks in the system. The D-Limit is meant to keep prices equal and consistent throughout the markets.
This order type will essentially put a halt to high frequency trading, changing the entire game in the markets.
We would have transitioned from an older world of finance, to an innovative one that may bring more participants to the market.
So, How Will This Affect AMC And GameStop?
The price moves based on supply and demand would be significantly more accurate.
I would expect massive price moves from retail momentum finally display in the lit market.
IEX is the first step towards a fair market and retail investors must support it’s innovative structure to fight high frequency trading.
Only then could we move on to the checklist of eliminating dark pool trading and other predatory strategies.
What Are The Chances Of The D-Limit Order Type Being Approved?
This would highly depend on the judge(s) looking into this matter. There are a lot of factors that can take place here and Dave Laurer, a former Citadel Securities employee said it well in a recent interview with Trey.
He mentioned you never know what kind of deals are being made behind-the-scenes that may influence certain decisions.
And although Dave Laurer wasn’t very optimistic, I believe the energy we should be feeding is that of positive impact and real change in the markets.
The D-Limit order type would be a significant innovation in our markets and must be upheld.
It would be up to retail investors to fight for justice and a fair market should it not be upheld in court.
This is a developing story so make sure to subscribe to the blog or follow me on social media to get notified on the next updates.
Is The D-Limit Order Type That Good?
To put things into perspective, the IEX Exchange has done numerous tests observing the accuracy of the D-Limit order type.
Bitcoin may not be in a dip right now but buying the cryptocurrency today exposes you to the bullish possibility of doubling your investment during it’s long-term runup.
And personally, I’m willing to bet on the investments with strong convictions, high price predictions, and a strong community to back it up.
Because honestly why wouldn’t you? The bank isn’t paying you squat for letting your money sit.
They’re investing it behind your back so why wouldn’t you invest it for yourself, right?
And you don’t even have to follow me. But follow those who are doing the research and taking the time to identify big plays so that you’ll be ready when they say go.
$100k, $150k, then $200k…
This price prediction is from Chamath, former Facebook executive, multi-billionaire angel investor, and early Bitcoin buyer.
Chamath predicts Bitcoin will reach 100, 150, then 200 thousand dollars per BTC.
Take a quick minute to watch this short video, community.
How long will it take Bitcoin to reach these incredible numbers? Chamath doesn’t know for certain of course. But he estimates it may happen during this decade.
The amazing thing about bitcoin is that you don’t have to own 1 BTC to actually make money.
When you decide you want to put $5,000-$10,000 in this vehicle, it will purchase Bitcoin in fractions.
So each time Bitcoin moves up, your fractions earn gains just the same.
This is where BTC really is affordable for most people to get into. You can set a budget of how much you want to invest in it.
Granted, a vehicle this massive will earn proper returns the more you actually throw in it.
Should You Buy Bitcoin Right Now?
If you bought Bitcoin back in June or July, you would have doubled if not nearly doubled your investment.
BTC has reached an all-time high which leads me to believe we’re going to see a small dip around $60k to maybe even a little below.
This will be the perfect time to add to your position or open a new investment in Bitcoin.
This of course is my prediction based on BTC’s chart pattern history.
No matter, whether you buy now or wait for a small dip, Bitcoin has major potential in the eyes of millions of investors within this massive community.
I for one continue to be extremely bullish on the crypto and will be posting to my Patreon group when I add to my position.
In fact, I just recently added 3 cryptos to my portfolio.
The purpose of this blog is to provide you with leads on hot stocks and crypto that have the potential to multiply your initial investment.
I’m not a financial advisor, I just love to write, research, and make a positive impact in the lives of other people.
Truth be told, my biggest wins are knowing you profited from stocks or crypto you read about on my site.
I can make great plays due to my research and not tell anyone about it. But I rather share the knowledge and have my readers make their own decisions based on the data at hand.
If you’ve been reading FrankNez since early this year and are profitable in AMC, I salute you. If you bought Bitcoin’s dip back in June/July when I recommended it and now you’ve doubled your investment too, I salute you.
And if this is your first time reading my blog, I’m going to leave my social media handles below so you can keep up with me and the community.
AMC stock is up more than 2000% year-to-date. People continue to wonder why AMC talks continue to pop up everywhere.
The AMC community has grown immensely since the start of this year. Retail investors discovered data that would allow them to make massive gains from simply buying the stock and holding it.
The SEC just released a report confirming what has driven GameStop’s share price up and how we’ll know when shorts begin to cover; more on that later.
The first wave of retail investors are up significant amount of money from getting in early, a few from the second wave are beginning to break even, with another percent finally seeing profits.
With AMC currently trading in the low $40s, third wave investors that get in now could experience significant gains on AMC’s next major runup.
Welcome to Franknez.com – I’ve been discussing AMC’s data since early February. If you missed the runup twice already it’s not too late and I’m going to discuss why.
Let’s get started!
Some of you have told me you saw my AMC articles early this year, dismissed them, but luckily got in right before the push to $70 per share.
Others had the same experience but got in a lot higher.
If you’re holding losses at the moment I think it’s fair to say, for some of you, that it was due to negligence. Negligence of information, correct?
But it doesn’t matter because some of you second wave investors are finally breaking even, with a few even profiting again.
You see, AMC stock has the perfect setup for another runup and a lot of people are going to miss it, for the third time!
But not you.
And I believe this third wave could cause the big one to come to fruition.
We’re going to take a look at where AMC is now, and what we can learn from the SEC’s new report regarding GameStop’s runup back in January.
AMC’s Momentum Just Only Started
The momentum we’ve seen with AMC stock has merely been a statement. A statement that said, “hey look over here, check out this data before it’s too late”.
The runups AMC has had, brought attention to the data. This data tells us massive change is going to occur in the lives of those who hold these golden tickets.
A lot of what’s occurring in the markets is quite complicated, but in short, retail investors are taking this opportunity to squeeze hedge funds betting against the movie theater chain from their short positions.
Squeezing these players out of their short positions would create what’s known as a “short squeeze”.
A short squeeze would create so much momentum that AMC’s stock price would skyrocket to unprecedented numbers.
The Stock Is Not That Far From Its New Bottom
The AMC community created a new bottom for AMC stock. After several price moves, it seems AMC has found a new bottom in the mid to high level $30 range.
If you added to your position when the price was around $36 last week, then you’re already seeing gains the start of this new week.
AMC is not that far from its new bottom which means it has a lot of upside potential from buying pressure alone.
As momentum buyers continue to apply pressure against short sellers, AMC’s stock price will continue to move up past $50, $60, $70, and beyond.
As AMC establishes higher highs and higher lows, we also raise AMC’s bottom.
So where the current bottom is in the mid to high $30s, a new bottom could easily establish itself in the $70s-$80s after the next major runup for example.
How high this new bottom gets raised would depend on how high the next runup goes.
We’ve seen this type of price move with Tesla as it continued to set higher highs and higher lows.
But with that being said, at the rate the AMC community is growing, the momentum and buying pressure is (without a doubt) there to grow AMC’s market cap.
It’s very possible a third runup forces big shorts to close their positions to refrain from losing even more money.
In this instance, the short interest would plummet and AMC’s share price would skyrocket.
This of course would depend on how big the momentum carried out by retail is.
The SEC confirmed in a report how important buying pressure was to squeeze GameStop short sellers earlier this year. More on that below.
One thing is certain. Early third wave investors along with long term holders will be up significantly in gains as the buying pressure increases.
Late third wave investors could very well partake in the short squeeze event as short sellers rush to close their positions during the next AMC runup.
This third wave of momentum is not necessarily coming from new FOMO buyers but mainly from the AMC community who’ve been buying and holding the stock for months now.
Additional momentum from FOMO buyers will only add fuel to the rocket.
In the recent SEC report, they back up how intense momentum can increase the price of a particular security, I’ll go over that in just a moment.
Should You Buy AMC Stock Today?
We’ve discovered the secret hedge funds feared we’d discover. And it’s the power of community.
AMC has a massive community made up of millions of retail investors who are buying and holding the stock until a massive short squeeze is triggered.
This means the community is periodically buying the stock but also holding it, as momentum continues to push the stock price upwards.
Whether you decide to buy and hold AMC stock for a short squeeze play or for profits, be sure to do your research first because patience eventually ends up paying off.
How Will We Know When AMC Squeezes?
The SEC just released a report detailing the events that occurred in January regarding GameStop’s massive runup.
They mentioned that one thing they noted, was that GameStop’s short interest decreased during the time the share price had increased drastically as it began to squeeze shorts from their positions.
This confirms to us just how important the short interest is in this short squeeze play.
In that same excerpt, the SEC confirms that volume was a significant factor that triggered shorts to cover their positions in GME.
What differentiates AMC from GME is that GameStop’s short interest continued to go down after it’s runup, while AMC’s short interest actually increased.
This means that these AMC price moves have been solely from retail momentum.
Shorts have not covered AMC and it’s for this reason that AMC will continue to climb up until shorts tap out like they did with GameStop earlier this year.
Now, GameStop still has juice left to keep running up. It’s current short interest is at 11% where AMC’s is at 17%.
But it’s all in the hands of retail investors at the moment. And as long as retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock, the price will continue to surge based on demand alone.
Here’s Why AMC Will Keep Surging
What triggered GameStop’s massive price increase was a combination of retail buying pressure that led up to many shorts covering their short positions.
We saw this as GameStop’s short interest fell from 100% to where it’s currently at today.
AMC’s short interest has only increased which means now is the perfect time for retail to conjure up a buying storm if a short squeeze is to be triggered now.
Although AMC does not have the short interest GameStop did back in January before it squeezed, AMC’s short interest is leaning closer to 20% which is still categorized as “extremely high” short interest.
You can view the short interest as being the juice to the squeeze.
AMC’s amazing runups have all been merely from proud AMC shareholders fighting against short sellers.
And we’re not going anywhere until they’re squeezed.
How To Trade A Short Squeeze
A short squeeze requires short squeezers to go long, which majority of the AMC community has done.
A candidate with more than 10% short interest has enough short sellers to create a short squeeze.
AMC’s short interest is coming up to 18%.
The only thing stopping AMC from squeezing at the moment is massive buying pressure.
The people who miss out on this short squeeze play will be those who do not get in on this historical play right now.
Because as soon as short sellers are triggered to close in masses, it would have been too late to participate in this short squeeze play.
Will You Miss AMC’s Short Squeeze?
AMC stock is up more than 2000% year-to-date. Mind you this is without a short squeeze and with the short interest increasing all year.
GME is up more than 900% year-to-date although it used up majority of its 100% short interest earlier this year.
An AMC short squeeze is inevitable and the gains will be immense. The question is, will you be a part of it or will you miss it for the third time?
BREAKING: Citadel is suing the SEC over the new D-Limit order that would protect displayed lit orders from being picked off by latency arbitrage players.
“The SEC failed to properly consider the costs and burdens imposed by this proposal that will undermine the reliability of our markets and harm tens of millions of retail investors,” a Citadel Securities spokeswoman said in an email on Friday, via Reuters.
Now, this has been an ongoing battle since last year. However, new documents show this fight has risen in court again.
In fact, the new court date is set for October 25th of this month. This is big.
Welcome to Franknez.com – today I’m going to be breaking down the D-Limit order and the Citadel Securities LLC vs SEC court hearing.
Let’s get started!
Community, the news that has come up today has been an ongoing fight since before GameStop began moving up between the months of October-January.
I’m going to break down the entire investigation leading up to today’s recent news and court date.
What Is The D-Limit Order?
The D-Limit order is designed to protect liquidity providers from potential “adverse selection” by latency arbitrage trading strategies.
This rule basically gives traders a way to buy or sell stock at the exchange while protecting them against unfavorable price moves, via Reuters.
“The D-Limit Order is an artificial intelligence order type that protects displayed lit orders from being picked off by latency arbitrage players.”
“It aims to benefit displayed equity market quotes with better prices, larger displayed sizes and more competition among liquidity providers.” via, JLN.
This order is a massive threat to Citadel as it takes away predatory trading through the practices of market arbitrage.
What Is Market Arbitrage?
Market arbitrage is the act of buying a security in one market and simultaneously selling it in another market for a higher price.
Traders frequently attempt to exploit the arbitrage opportunity by buying a stock on a foreign exchange where the share price hasn’t yet been adjusted for the fluctuating exchange rate, via Investopedia.
This type of trading takes advantage of everyone involved, including retail investors.
Citadel personnel argue that the D-Limit rule is detrimental to millions of retail investors and undermine the reliability of the markets.
How could you even argue the point, that’s insane!
Market arbitrage is a form of predatory trading.
The D-Limit order fights against latency arbitrage from high frequency traders such as Citadel Securities.
This D-Limit order would provide the markets with more accurate prices and prevent HFT firms from using arbitrage strategies to plummet or extensively short stocks.
In short, Citadel Securities has been fighting the SEC to continue using manipulative strategies against retail investors.
Apes in the community will have to back up the SEC to create this massive change in our markets.
Citadel Securities VS SEC October 25th, 2021
This battle between Citadel Securities and the SEC has been occurring for quite some time now.
However, Citadel and the SEC now have a new court hearing on October 25th, 2021. The fight for a fair market continues.
The lawsuit fights against the use of the D-Limit order through the IEX exchange that would provide the markets with a solution against arbitrage trading via AI technology.
Argument: Citadel Enjoys Unfair Advantages Over Other Participants
Citadel Securities has been facing major scrutiny all over social media and is now being recognized for it’s multiple scandals in the public’s eye.
In a series of documents detailing the court hearing, the SEC explains how Citadel has profited billions from high frequency trading.
This D-Limit order won’t just target Citadel Securities, it’s going after a handful of other high frequency trading firms.
Eliminating these manipulative strategies would be extremely bullish for retail investors.
For example, the markets wouldn’t be as volatile.
High frequency trading has been the cause for several market meltdowns so eliminating this practice would provide retail investors with a fair playground.
Citadel, as a market maker processes more than 40% retail investor trades in the market. 100% come from Robinhood.
This means Citadel has been making money from every trade that’s been processed merely from high frequency trading.
You essentially have this monster of a company making money off of every opportunity they can get a hold of, even if it means cheating retail investors.
Opposing this order is not protecting retail investors! Citadel is suing the SEC to continue this market manipulation and we cannot let this happen.
The Citadel Securities vs SEC lawsuit will take place on Monday, October 25th.
How Will The D-Limit Order Affect Meme Stocks?
The D-Limit order will allow momentum stocks such as AMC and GameStop to run more naturally by eliminating some of the manipulation that suppresses the stocks from performing better.
The thing about arbitrage trading is that because these hedge funds are able to find foreign exchanges where the price hasn’t yet been adjusted, they can buy ‘current’ priced stocks and sell short in other exchanges.
The D-Limit order is meant to eliminate these strategies.
This market arbitrage could very well explain how hedge funds and HFT firms have been able to short momentum stocks despite the massive buying pressure from retail investors.
Massive kudos to the SEC for fighting against Citadel. There’s a lot going on in the background that we usually aren’t aware of.
I feel that as a community we must give strength to our regulators to make a difference in the markets.
This is a democracy and we want a fair market after all.
Will The D-Limit Order Be Upheld?
The D-Limit order would create a massive change in the markets in general, not just for the ape community.
This order must be upheld. There is absolutely no justification as to why it wouldn’t be.
It is up to our community as engaged and active investors to make this information known. And it is up to us to fully support it’s nature to create real change in the markets.
Our community doesn’t have the full trust from the SEC, yet.
But we must support those in power who can fight against the market manipulation head on.
An AMC and GME short squeeze depend on it. Hedge funds will not go down without a fight so a fight it is.
A fight for a fair market, a fight for the community, and a fight for your financial freedom.
MOASS is inevitable, but it will be up to us to ensure it’s fruition.
I want to thank you apes for sharing the content, for being involved in the Discord community, and for being amazing community members across every social media platform.
The world needs people like you.
Also, be sure to check out the YouTube video of me briefly discussing this topic and don’t forget to subscribe.
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re seeing more of these headlines on mainstream media. The SEC and other powerful leaders are looking into Citadel Securities, calling their business model “politically motivated“.
The crackdown is real. I read what both Gary Gensler’s colleagues and people of opposite views have had to say about the SEC’s chairman.
And they both said the same thing… He’s unpredictable, and someone not to underestimate.
I guess retail investors will have to find out for ourselves won’t we?
Welcome to Franknez.com – massive bullish news coming to you today. Apes, we’re moving in the right direction. Will this crackdown be the catalyst to a short squeeze?
Let’s get started!
Fox Business Live Citadel Video
GOP insiders are saying Biden, the SEC, and Warren have all launched a political vendetta against Citadel Securities.
Dems have been working towards implementing serious consequences for Citadel Securities after the Archegos incident.
It comes as no surprise that the party is pressing on.
It’s also important that we see beyond the political parties. Retail investors are fighting for a fair market.
Our community is so diverse that it in the end it doesn’t matter whether the party fighting against market manipulation is republican or democratic.
We need regulators and people with power to impose serious consequences on the market maker.
After several months of voicing your thoughts about the injustice in the markets, Citadel Securities is finally getting the smackdown.
“There’s A Movement Afoot, To Take Down His Empire”
Charlie Gasparino has always been quick to defend hedge funds betting against ‘meme stocks’.
You might know Gasparino for trolling the AMC community on Twitter.
He argues that PFOF (payment for order flow) works and traders get to trade at no commission for it but fails to understand why retail investors want to remove this practice.
Retail investors don’t want Citadel Securities – who’s a hedge fund, market maker, and dark pool, to process their orders.
Watch the short video below.
Retail investors want to eliminate the market manipulation that’s been occurring due to the overleveraged power Citadel Securities has over the retail investor.
In short retail investors want to:
Eliminating dark pool trading
Get rid of PFOF
Have regulators look into insider trading
Expose and hold those accountable for the restrictions of buying meme stocks earlier this year
Liquidate overleveraged hedge funds
Eliminating these threats from the market would allow both AMC and GameStop to naturally skyrocket based on the laws of supply and demand.
The end game? A massive short squeeze.
Here’s How Citadel Securities Has Abused Their Power In The Market
Citadel Securities is one of the top financial institutions shorting both AMC and GameStop.
And while shorting a stock may not be illegal, trading patterns from several technical analysts shows naked shorting has made itself present again after being deemed illegal due to the Great Recession of 2008.
Intraday trading does not align with the actual sentiment of retail investors.
Unprecedented short-ladder attacks from overleveraged borrowed shares have been a way to cheat in the game too.
Retail investors have every right to buy as much stock as they want.
Suppressing the stock’s price action through leverage from banks and other financial institutions to profit on the downside is the biggest manipulation to have been uncovered in the markets.
Dark Pool Trading Must Be Eliminated
AMC dark pool trading has been as high as 60% in the past few months and has traded higher other days.
This advantage allows hedge funds shorting the stock to drive the price down despite the massive buying pressure from retail investors.
These dark pools can mask the buying pressure from retail, allowing hedge funds to manipulate how the trade is recognized through its share price.
Gasparino fails to recognize that investors are fighting against this type of manipulation in the markets.
He fails to recognize that Citadel is able to process orders through their dark pool without having the incredible retail buying pressure move against them.
Betting against a fair market, and especially against these heavily shorted meme stocks is a sign of weakness.
Rather than covering their short positions, hedge funds, market makers, and the banks have all exposed themselves.
A few months ago I said that this wouldn’t get out of hand unless hedge funds allowed it to by not closing their short positions in AMC and GameStop.
I said it would only escalate and here we are! Everyone is looking at Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin.
“Washington Is Aiming At Ken Griffin”
During the congressional hearing earlier this year, Citadel Securities CEO Ken Griffin was under intense scrutiny.
According to Gasparino, GOP sources are stating there’s a lot of insider talk about Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Gary Gensler going after Ken Griffin.
Citadel Securities processes almost half of all retail orders in the market.
The government is finally waking up to the excessive amount of power this market maker has.
If you’ve been reading FrankNez for quite some time now then you know how much I’ve preached the significance and power of your voice to make change happen.
Everything we’ve endured as a community is beginning to payoff.
Hedge Funds Face Short Sale Disclosure From The SEC
The SEC poses a threat to hedge funds through a rule that would enable them to receive short sale disclosure periodically.
In today’s market news, the SEC is imposing a new rule that would force money managers to periodically disclose short sale reports.
Hedge funds have already begun to retaliate against the rule as it would give away their ‘trading strategies‘. But hedge funds have also been overleveraging their positions in plays such as AMC and GameStop.
How will this rule make an impact on both these short squeeze plays? I want to discuss why this is very positive news for AMC, GameStop, and other ‘meme stocks’.
Welcome to Franknez.com – I think it’s safe to say most of you have no faith in the SEC. However, I feel like it’s important for us to intentionally look towards regulators to create real change. We cannot be loud and in the end expect nothing out of it. If we’re going to be loud, expect change to be the result of your efforts. Demand it.
Let’s get started!
Gears Have Begun To Move
Why does change take long? Change usually requires a specific amount of energy to begin manifesting in present time.
The energy it takes to change the color of your living room walls will take more time than the energy that is needed to change a lightbulb in your restroom.
Apes have been asking for massive change; monumentalchange in the markets.
The change we yearn does not happen with a flick of a switch. The change we’re looking to make will affect millions upon millions of people, even after our stories here on earth are done.
For a movement to make history, massive amounts of action and energy are required. Hence the length of real change to become present.
The community has made itself known to real entities with legal power to make change happen. I’ve been saying it for months now, your voice is a powerful weapon against the corruption in this world.
And because of your boldness and your courage, the gears towards monumental change in the markets have begun to move.
What Does Short Sale Disclosure Mean?
A short sale disclosure would allow the SEC to have full disclosure of the amount of shares that hedge funds are borrowing from other institutions to short stocks in the market.
Here’s where it gets interesting.
We know that hedge funds have been overleveraging their positions through phantom shares, or naked shares (non-existent), due to failure-to-deliver data, dark pool trading percentage, and anomalies in intraday charts that push the price down regardless of buyers outweighing sellers.
A short sale disclosure would mean hedge funds by law will be required to show regulators the powerplant behind the curtains if they are to continue these type of operations.
And hedge funds are nervous. We’ve seen hedge funds beg the OCC to delay liquidation, and are now seeing pushback regarding this new short sale disclosure rule.
Short Sale Disclosure Could Eliminate Naked Shorting In The Markets
At least theoretically right? Hedge funds are able to report information to regulators that essentially lands on a ‘safe zone’ type of filing.
Often times market manipulation is overlooked due to the misinformation that is being reported.
A short sale disclosure puts immense pressure on hedge funds. It could prevent them from engaging in illegal shorting strategies.
Failing to do so could open the possibility to regulators suspending these strategies in general. I don’t doubt that in the fight for a fair market this could become a reality.
A short sale disclosure could be seen as a type of audit to monitor hedge fund activities. The anomalies in the market have gotten the attention of Gary Gensler, chairman of the SEC.
And as I mentioned earlier, it takes a lot of energy and time to get the gears moving.
The short sale disclosure rule could be proposed by November next month, via Bloomberg intel.
Community, this is very optimistic news. We can’t keep attacking the very people who can actually impose regulations on this powerful adversary.
We are a very intelligent community. Let’s not self-sabotage our opportunity to make a real and positive impact in the markets.
Could Short Sale Disclosure Trigger Margin Calls?
If buying power is exceeded, or overleveraged, it’s possible hedge funds could face margin calls. Margin requirements could be raised and accounts may get liquidated depending on the short sale disclosure information.
It may sound simple but know that the markets are far from simple. Hedge funds will not go down without a fight.
But if you’ve seen Ken Griffin recently, it looks like the boss battle is almost over.
How Will This New Rule Affect ‘Meme Stocks’?
Take away massive shorting in the markets and you’ll get the real picture of what a real supply and demand market looks like.
If you analyze the technical chart data of AMC and GameStop you’ll find that the price moves down when it should not be moving down.
You cannot compare how massive buyers are compared to sellers in both these plays, yet we see the price of these stocks get driven down when supply and demand should be narrating a different story.
Hedge funds have been manipulating AMC and GameStop’s price action to benefit financial institutions in a market that’s better-tailored for one player.
This is why the SEC is also implementing the Market Structure Modernization rule. Market plumbing has drawn big attention from politicians, investors, and regulators alike.
The SEC will be targeting PFOF and the market dominance of financial firms, including Robinhood and Citadel Securities.
This would be massive! Retail investors do not trust Citadel to process their securities.
Eliminating the flow of transactions to this financial firm could mean a massive difference in FTDs, and even dark pool trading!
However, this rule could come by April. Change takes time.
Here’s Why An AMC Rebound Is Right Around The Corner
I published this article explaining why I believe AMC will rebound soon. The data has to do with short interest and volume patterns.
A lot of you have shared this article recently and I actually appreciate you for doing so.
I know all too well what it feels like to just want this play to simply pop. Every single one of us has this in common.
Time is on our side, don’t forget to enjoy the present.
The conference call surprised the world and made several headlines. Well now this vision has come to fruition and retail investors can now purchase gift cards without the USD.
This shift is going to create a domino effect where more companies will begin to soon follow.
If you’ve been able to multiply your USD through cryptocurrency, then your purchases can essentially be free to some extent.
Leveraging your gains from cryptocurrency could be a bargain to getting deals from your favorite brands. I’m personally sticking to building wealth though.
No matter, this news is extremely bullish and shows the strong innovation behind this century old movie theater chain.
I wouldn’t be surprised if we begin to see Dogecoin rise again. I’m extremely bullish on AMC stock too and look forward to seeing both these assets reach the moon.
What Other Companies Are Accepting Dogecoin?
Here’s a list of companies accepting the purchase of credit cards with BitPay Wallet right now:
Barnes & Nobles
Bass Pro Shops
Bath & Body Works
Bed Bath & Beyond
The Home Depot
The list goes on and on. The acceptance of cryptocurrency goes to show just how valuable companies now think digital currency is.
They understand that over a period of time, that crypto can be worth a significant amount of money more since the date of its very first transaction.
So, should you spend crypto on retail stores and companies? I personally rather invest in them long term.
Bitcoin is up almost 400% this year, Dogecoin is up more than 9000% compared to 1 year ago.
The best way you can leverage your crypto to experience your favorite brands would be to use a percentage of your gains. This way you don’t touch the principle on your investment nor the full amount on your gains.
By using this leverage as a lifehack, you’ll be able to not only multiply your hard earned money, but also take advantage of bargains and deals.
Will You Be Using Crypto To Buy AMC Tickets Or Gift Cards?
Leave me a comment below. I would love to know your take on this. Do you see yourself using crypto to buy AMC tickets? Do you see yourself using cryptocurrency to buy anything from your favorite brands at all?
Since these assets are going up in value over a period of time, I think the best way you can leverage your crypto is once you’ve made quite some significant gains!
I certainly see myself leveraging my gains if it means only a very small percentage of my gains will be used for entertainment or recreational purposes.
I mean, you certainly don’t want to give up your entire earnings right!? Otherwise it would defeat the purpose of using crypto to multiply your earnings in the first place.
Cryptocurrency Lifehack Will Be Good
I think that if managed properly, cryptocurrency could be a great lifehack as I’ve explained above. Financial literacy is already difficult for most to get a grasp on.
But I think that most people who are already investing in cryptocurrency are financially literate to the point where they understand they need to move their money to make more money.
By leveraging our gains properly, I think we might just have the opportunity to add a ton of value to our lives as both consumers and investors.
And if you haven’t diversified enough to have crypto in your portfolio, I suggest using the exchange Kraken to buy your cryptocurrencies.
