Will AMC Stock Go Up? [2022 Deep Dive]

Will AMC stock go up?

AMC has been trending downwards since its rise up to $72 per share and now retail investors are wondering, will AMC stock go up?

In a recent article I break down 3 BIG factors that have influenced AMC’s downward trajectory in the past few months.

Although AMC’s share price has been plummeting, the demand for the stock has not.

This key point is going to play a big role in what happens to AMC stock after this bear market is over.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to lay a few key points you should take into consideration if you’re holding AMC stock or thinking of buying it.

Let’s get started!

AMC stock had an incredible year in 2021.

The stock reached an all-time high of $72 per share with only 20% short interest at the time.

Once the share price began to come down, AMC’s short interest had come down to 14%.

Well, AMC’s short interest is back up to 20% again meaning short sellers have not learned their lesson.

Another key point I’m going to discuss below.

Can AMC’s share price still go up?

Can AMC's share price still go up?

As we start the new year, AMC’s average daily volume is incredibly high.

AMC has an average volume of almost 43 million with many days surpassing this amount.

It’s more than 15 times that of GameStop’s current volume.

So why isn’t AMC’s massive demand reflecting in the share price?

That’s the question the ‘ape community’ has been asking regulators all year 2021.

Too many eyes are on regulators right now and at some point, some suppression inflicted by hedge funds will have to subside.

And aside from Omicron and Covid news affecting the entire market, AMC’s massive volume will eventually push the stock price up during a correction.

What does this mean for retail investors?

If you’re looking to get in on AMC for a short squeeze, know the risks, but understand that once this stock takes off you will not be able to buy it at these prices again.

Deflating the short interest

AMC Short Interest

Deflating AMC’s short interest like we saw back in January and June means AMC stock will go up significantly higher from its current share price.

Small short covering allowed AMC to reach $72 per share back in June of 2021.

So why can AMC stock still go up?

Despite the heavy buying volume from retail, AMC still has more than enough short interest percentage to squeeze shorts from their positions.

2022 is only the sequel to 2021’s runup.

The reason mainstream media doesn’t want you to know this is because of their ties to hedge funds and private financial institutions.

These institutions are ‘short’ on AMC and GameStop, meaning they’re betting against them.

Pushing propaganda that will feed their narrative is the safest way for hedge funds to derail retail from further buying the stock that could cause them to default.

Hedge funds such as Melvin Capital, Anchorage Capital, Mudrick, & Archegos are out of the game.

Citadel Securities on the other hand continues to be short on AMC stock and seems to be having a hard time weathering this retail storm.

This is why mainstream media will not touch topic on the short interest data that could squeeze shorts from their positions.

AMC Entertainment fundamentals

AMC Entertainment fundamentals

A short squeeze play has nothing to do with AMC Entertainment’s fundamentals.

The reason being is that retail goes based off of how much shorting there is in the company stock.

Buying the stock en masse (big volume) will cause AMC stock to go up, forcing shorts to close their positions and buy back their shares; triggering a short squeeze.

A short squeeze play does not depend on the performance of the company as a business.

AMC’s fundamentals are not the greatest, the company does have a lot of debt.

However, something mainstream media is not discussing is just how much their debt has gone down each quarter since 2021.

AMC Entertainment’s fundamentals are a discussion I will be touching topic on another blog post very soon so be sure to join the newsletter.

And although AMC still has quite aways to clear their debt, the company has become one of the first to lead crypto innovation and accept payment in cryptocurrencies.

Tesla has now followed by accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment on their merchandise too.

Debt is the only thing holding AMC Entertainment from being a fundamental buy in the eyes of most in the industry.

AMC Entertainment partnerships

AMC Entertainment Partnerships, why AMC will go up,

AMC partnered up with Chance the Rapper last year for his concert movie release.

CEO Adam Aron announced that they would be working on partnering up with industry leaders for licensing agreements that would allow AMC to provide more of these experiences to their audiences around the world.

Another successful showing was the UFC fight they held in theatres.

The CEO also expressed his optimism surrounding showing highly anticipated sports events in theatres, granted licensing of course.

Retail investors have been specifically waiting for an AMC-GameStop partnership.

A topic Adam Aron teased could be in the works at some point.

AMC theatres will be releasing “GameStop: Rise of the Players” on January 28th, 2022.

One thing you cannot deny is the community strength and company relationship to its shareholders.

It’s never been seen before.

Do you own AMC stock?

Leave a comment below.

So, will AMC stock go up again?

franknez.com

Based on trader sentiment, community sentiment, and continuous innovation from the company, AMC stock will go up again.

This bear market won’t last forever.

And although the entire market is rather shaky at the moment, there will be a correction.

Hedge funds might have leverage to short the stock, but the people aren’t leaving.

AMC Entertainment will have to focus on growth and revenue if they are to get out of debt in the future.

Why is AMC Stock Going Down? [3 BIG Reasons]

why is AMC stock going down?
3 Big Reasons why AMC stock is going down

AMC stock continues to have an incredible amount of demand for the stock, so why is AMC stock going down?

After all, the ape community has made it almost one whole year without selling the stock.

Shouldn’t big short sellers be closing their positions by now?

The answer is simpler than you think.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today we’re diving into 3 BIG reasons why AMC stock is going down. Here’s what you need to know.

Let’s get started!

Now, I published this same exact topic discussion on my YouTube channel so if you’re subscribed then you might have already watched it.

Either way, I will embed it at the end of the article for your viewing pleasure as it will enhance this article.

Why is AMC stock dropping?

why is AMC stock dropping?
Why is AMC dipping?

AMC stock has been dropping for a few months now.

Its steady downtrend has retail investors wondering what in the world is going on, and whether the stock will pick up again.

High rewards come with high risks, and it would be wise to remember to never overleverage your investments.

If you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, you’ll be happy to hear AMC’s share price decline is only temporary.

I said this earlier in our topic discussion on the channel; just like bull markets don’t last forever, neither do bear markets.

Eventually we’ll see a correction.

Let’s start with the first reason why AMC stock has gone down.

#1. Omicron & Covid news

Omicron news stock market

AMC stock is down due to various publishers pushing fears about Omicron and Covid news.

Now, AMC is not the only stock affected by this, the entire market has been hit because of the grim news.

Growing cases in the United States of the variant could cause businesses to have setbacks again.

Due to the uncertainty of how the variant will affect the economy, stocks are taking a massive toll from fear of the unknown.

AMC stock is down to a variety of reasons, but this economic fear is everywhere and is affecting the entire market, including the century old movie theatre chain.

#2. Adam Aron selling has driven AMC stock down

Adam Aron selling shares

Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment sold hundreds of thousands of shares, cashing in millions of dollars for his estate planning.

The admired CEO had notified shareholders of the company mid last year on his plans of doing so towards the end of the year.

Dumping hundreds of thousands of shares proved to move AMC’s stock price down as the ape community held.

While most of the community is indifferent about his decision, his actions moved AMC’s share price down significantly, especially due to a negative media.

Coverage by mainstream media only fueled this fire as more short sellers have begun to enter the play.

AMC’s short interest has risen from 16% to almost 20%!

When you combine the Covid news with bad press about the CEO taking profits, AMC’s share price is sure to take a hit as we have seen.

However, these two reasons why AMC stock is going down aren’t as big as this third one.

And I know many of you know where this is going.

#3. AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted

shorting AMC stock

Mainstream media might have painted a little picture about how AMC experienced a short squeeze last year but that’s far from the truth.

After all, these shill platforms are all tied together by News Corp., a company Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin is invested in.

AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted even in 2022.

Hedge funds have been using market manipulation strategies to suppress the stock from squeezing them from their short positions.

These financial institutions lost billions from shorting AMC stock in hopes the company would go bankrupt in 2021.

Since then, hedge funds like Mudrick, Archegos, and Anchorage Capital, who betted against AMC Entertainment, have closed.

Big hedge funds such as Citadel Securities have not closed their short positions in AMC causing turmoil for their customers.

The multi-billion-dollar hedge fund has even received a lifeline of $1.2 billion from partners Sequoia and Paradigm, their first private funding ever.

Even as hedge funds overleverage themselves to drive AMC stock down, it’s only a matter of time before more begin to throw in the towel.

Here’s what to expect in the coming weeks

franknez.com

AMC stock and the market in general will eventually start to see a correction.

Remember, bull markets don’t last forever.

However, keep in mind that AMC stock may still drop lower in price due to various market abnormalities (i.e., Omicron news, global market risks like Evergrande, market manipulation).

Related: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

One thing is certain.

AMC’s short interest is more than high enough to squeeze shorts from their positions.

When AMC’s SI dropped from 20% to 14%, we saw the company’s share price surge from $14 to $72.

The short interest is nearing 20% again with other brokers showing much higher.

The SEC is Voting on Hedge Fund Disclosures Next Week

SEC Hedge Fund Disclosure Proposal
New Hedge Fund Disclosure Proposal – SEC voting next week

News has surfaced of the SEC voting on hedge fund disclosures next week.

This topic first came about back in October of 2021, where the SEC said they were going to be imposing a new rule on hedge funds.

This rule would force money managers to periodically disclose short sale reports.

It seems the Securities Exchange Commission has now come to a voting process that’s about to take place next week.

More on that below.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog for retail investors. Should the SEC be obligated to carry out this rule? Be sure to leave a comment below.

Let’s get started!

SEC to strengthen quarterly trade details disclosure

Securities Exchange Commission hedge fund disclosure

The SEC is voting during the last week of January to propose increasing hedge fund trade disclosures.

While Gary Gensler hasn’t made the full details of this proposal available, he reported that there would be an increase in the frequency and details of hedge fund disclosures.

Hedge funds and other private funds use the Form PF to disclose quarterly details of their trades.

Form PF is mandated by the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law and is also used by the Financial Stability Oversight Council to monitor risks to the U.S. financial system, via. Reuters.

But as we all know, the forms do not provide sufficient information.

This allows hedge funds to remain under the radar when it comes to certain market practices.

Gensler said that the proposal would also boost pay disclosures to monitor the pay versus performance metrics of its workforce.

Overstock Founder says SEC has always turned a “blind eye”

Overstock founder Patrick Byrne on the SEC

Any news about the SEC should be taken with a grain of salt.

The SEC tried imposing several rules in 2021 that would prevent hedge funds from manipulating the market but have failed to protect retail investors.

In an effort to squeeze shorts from their short positions in AMC and GameStop, hedge funds continue to suppress the stock’s price through various loopholes.

Related: How do hedge funds manipulate the stock market?

In a recent interview with Overstock’s Founder Patrick Byrne, he provides retail investors with deep insight on what’s been occurring for decades.

Retail investors have been right about how hedge funds can sway the stock market in their favor.

And while the SEC has not done anything to prevent the market manipulation, retail investors say the SEC is complicit.

Will the SEC protect retail against market manipulation?

franknez.com

Retail investors buying AMC and GME stock want the stock price to run without any hedge fund market manipulation.

The retail demand for both these tickers are extremely high, even as hedge funds overleverage their positions to short them.

Naked shorting, dark pool trading, and OTC trading are a few ways hedge funds have been able to synthetically drive ‘meme stocks’ down.

The lack of regulation of these financial institutions has increased systemic risk and has negatively impacted the integrity of the stock market.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022? [Short Interest Data]

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Entertainment 2022

Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, and their name serves them right.

Mainstream media who serve hedge funds in a conflict of interest have been egging retail investors to not buy the stock all of 2021.

If you listened to The Fool who told you not to buy AMC when its share price was below $20 per share, then you would not be sitting extremely well like a lot of ‘apes’ are.

Investors who bought early are up more than 1200% alone from last year’s run.

While the runup to $72 per share might have caused AMC’s short interest to drop to 14% from 20%, AMC’s short interest has gone up to 20% again.

Ladies and gentlemen, AMC stock has plenty of room for growth in 2022.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides retail investors with market news with integrity. Today we’re discussing AMC’s short interest data to determine whether it will squeeze in 2022.

Let’s get started!

If you haven’t subscribed to the newsletter, be sure to do so that way you don’t miss out on new information.

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

It’s no secret the financial platforms who have been attacking AMC stock are tied together.

Wall Street Journal’s parent company is News Corp., who also owns Barrons, MarketWatch, and DOW Jones Newswire.

Well, there’s a relationship between Citadel Securities’ CEO Ken Griffin and News Corp (he owns stock).

This creates conflict of interest because of the influence these people in power have who are shorting AMC stock.

Citadel Securities is one of the top 10 financial institutions shorting AMC stock.

So, let’s look at the data that shows whether or not AMC will squeeze in 2022.

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 20%.

The short interest tells us the percentage of a stocks float that is being shorted (shares have been borrowed and not yet closed).

Because AMC is still heavily shorted at 20%, it is still a short squeeze play in 2022.

A 20% short interest is equivalent to approximately 111.23 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

When AMC’s short interest dropped from 20% to 14% (6 points), the share price rose to $72 per share.

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to 20% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

AMC’s short interest for 2022 is updated here daily for free, via Ortex.

So, why has AMC stock been going down recently?

Watch my topic discussion on the channel below for a quick overview.

Whether AMC’s stock price is up or down, the short interest tells us a large portion of AMC’s float continues to be shorted.

The short interest is the main recipe for a short squeeze.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?

will AMC squeeze in 2022
Will AMC squeeze in 2022? Game over short sellers | AMC Stock 2022

AMC has a high enough short interest to squeeze shorts from their positions in 2022.

Sitting at 20% short interest, it’s more than enough to get the price up well into the high hundreds of dollars per share.

Whether regulators will investigate naked shares, FTDs, and other forms of counterfeit shares for hedge funds to cover is another topic.

AMC will need momentum if it’s to see another massive runup in share price.

Furthermore, hedge funds will lead their customers into losses for the second year in a row if retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock in 2022.

AMC Entertainment stock has plenty of room for growth and mainstream media doesn’t want you to know it.

Who is AMC stock for?

AMC Popcorn

AMC stock is for the retail investors who are willing to take a little risk to multiply their investment through a short squeeze play.

A short squeeze play is a long commitment with incredible upside.

If you’re lucky enough to get involved in the ape community you’ll find yourself fighting for a fair and transparent market, where your voice means everything.

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

why AMC won't squeeze

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

There are many of you who got in when I first began publishing the data early last year and are sitting on unrealized gains today.

And although AMC could have squeezed during various occasions last year, there are still things that can hinder AMC from squeezing this year.

Here’s a list of things that will refrain AMC from squeezing shorts from their positions:

  1. Retail investors start selling AMC stock
  2. Retail investors stop buying AMC stock
  3. New buyers aren’t introduced to the stock or short interest data
  4. Number of day-traders increase
  5. Regulators don’t enforce margin calls / protect retail from market manipulation

The AMC community has not had a problem holding or buying the stock.

One of the biggest problems the community faces today is regulators not protecting retail investors against the predatorial strategies from hedge funds.

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC AMC Stock

AMC stock had multiple chances to squeeze in 2021, however, hedge funds always found a loophole that would prevent them from reporting information, or trading stock in the lit exchange.

Market manipulation continues to be a threat to every retail investor in the market.

AMC Entertainment was on the brink of extinction, it was about to go bankrupt.

Hedge funds took this opportunity to overleverage their short positions in the stock, betting it would close forever.

Once retail investors got in and saved the company, the community uncovered a number of market manipulation tactics that allowed hedge funds to prevent the stock’s share price from soaring.

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

For the ape community, this is more than just a short squeeze play.

It’s about freedom.

Overstock Founder Says SEC Has Always Turned A “Blind Eye”

Overstock founder Patrick Byrne on Market Manipulation and short selling
Overstock founder Patrick Byrne on Market Manipulation and short selling

Overstock Founder Patrick Byrne says the SEC has always turned a blind eye when it comes to predatorial practices in the stock market.

AMC and GME stock have both seen an incredible amount of naked shorting, but regulators have failed to enforce market makers and hedge funds from closing their overleveraged short positions.

The Overstock Founder has an extensive history of fighting for a fair market and explains why the SEC has always turned a blind eye.

I’m going to breakdown key highlights to this incredible interview and embed the video for your viewing pleasure at the end of the article.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights for retail investors and exposes injustices in the market. Today we’re discussing the biggest scandal in history.

Let’s get started!

Who is Patrick Byrne?

Now, if you are not familiar with who Patrick Byrne is, he’s the founder of Overstock.com, an online retail company.

Patrick Byrne has a history of exposing injustices in the market after Overstock experienced an incredible amount of shorting.

His activism and knowledge in the markets grabbed the attention of Chinese economists.

The Chinese have adopted Patrick’s principles and knowledge on how to properly build and run an efficient market that eliminates systemic risk to the country.

He has been under several investigations by the SEC due to exposing the corruption no one is willing to change.

Overstock Founder Patrick Byrne Short selling
Overstock Founder, Patrick Byrne

“Since the 90’s, they’ve always turned a blind eye to penny stocks in the market.”

Overstock Founder, Patrick Byrne

How deep are hedge funds in AMC and GameStop?

AMC and GameStop

According to the Overstock founder, he describes short sellers as having their foot on top of a bouncing betty.

Meaning as soon as they take their foot off, a massive explosive is triggered.

The expression denotes the particular circumstances hedge funds and market makers are currently in.

Hedge fund industry expert, Charles Gradante has recently stated that market makers created naked shares to refrain AMC and GameStop from further causing hedge funds great distress.

Read the full article here.

Now, Patrick Byrne confirms hedge funds and market makers will do anything to get out of this sticky situation.

Including using the media to attack AMC and GameStop, and even buy regulators in the SEC to allow the market manipulation to continue.

According to the Overstock founder, the only way out of that bouncing betty is to drive the stock’s price to 0.

Something retail investors are not allowing to happen.

Overstock Founder says the SEC, DTCC, and Fed are all corrupt

SEC is corrupt

In this incredible interview, Patrick depicts all regulators as a stack of turtles (I’ll embed the video below).

They’re all corrupt, all the way down, no matter the branch.

He’s heard Gary Gensler is not one of the ‘corrupt ones’; but although intelligent, might not know how to fix the problem.

Retail investors have been raising awareness of market injustices in hopes to receive acknowledgement from Gary Gensler.

However, the SEC Chairman has failed to take matters seriously.

Related: Fed’s Kaplan and Rosengren resign in market manipulation scandal

What will trigger AMC and GameStop to squeeze?

what will cause AMC and GameStop to squeeze

If short sellers are doing everything in their power to drive AMC’s and GameStop’s prices to 0, then retail truly is the only solution.

Buying and holding the stock is what’s keeping AMC and GameStop from going to 0.

If hedge funds drive these two stocks’ price down to 0, they win, and the bouncy betty is disassembled.

And the only way they can accomplish this is if retail investors call it quits.

So, we know that as long as retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock, hedge funds cannot drive the price down to 0.

What is the solution?

Time.

Every day, every week, and every month that hedge funds have not closed their positions, they lose money.

While retail investors accrue unrealized losses, hedge funds and market makers pay a fee to keep to their short positions open.

The time of desperation is already here.

The markets are getting liquidated, mainstream media continues to spread FUD about AMC and GameStop, and retail investors are not leaving.

You’ve already won if you’re holding either stock, you are the bouncing betty.

These multibillion-dollar companies are working together to scare you out of your money first.

They’re doing this by continuously overleveraging their positions and driving the share price down in hopes that retail will sell, and they’ll take the companies down to 0.

Be sure to watch this incredible interview on Overstock founder Patrick Byrne.

Patrick Byrne on short sellers and market manipulation

Exposing manipulation in the markets

Citadel Securities market manipulation

It’s going to take more than just time to trigger a short squeeze.

A short squeeze is going to require the community to demand proper market structure.

Patrick talks about T-Zero and blockchain technology as solutions that would eliminate naked shorting and the suppression of a stock’s share price in the market.

But the SEC considers the Overstock founder’s idea as market manipulation.

The retail community will not squeeze shorts from their positions unless proper market structure is demanded.

Short sellers will need their foot off the bouncing betty for AMC and GameStop to squeeze.

Elon Will Accept Dogecoin as Payment for Tesla Merchandise

Tesla accepts Dogecoin as Payment
Elon Musk – Dogecoin News

Elon Musk just announced Tesla will be accepting Dogecoin cryptocurrency as a form of payment for its merchandise.

You can’t buy a Tesla roadster with Dogecoin yet, but you will be able to purchase the company’s apparel.

The tech titan has been extremely fond of Dogecoin and owns the cryptocurrency asset himself.

What will this mean for Dogecoin and cryptocurrency adoption moving forward?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – Dogecoin just gained one of the most influential people on this planet to adopt it for transactions. Here’s a brief discussion of what’s happening right now.

Let’s get started!

Tesla’s Dogecoin news is official

Tesla Dogecoin News

Tesla announced on its website that Dogecoin is the only cryptocurrency they will be accepting.

The company cannot receive or detect any other digital asset.

What cryptocurrency does Tesla accept
Tesla.com/support/dogecoin

The Tesla Dogecoin news is now official.

Elon Musk is getting a lot of praise from the community and other cryptocurrency advocates alike on Twitter.

The Dogecoin news is already being named a highlight for 2022.

I’m curious to know what bears think about the incredibly bullish news not just for Dogecoin, but for the cryptocurrency community as a whole.

Because this ultimately affects the entire crypto space.

Another recent cryptocurrency adopter has been AMC Entertainment, accepting Shiba Inu Coin, Dogecoin, and Bitcoin as form of payment.

But Elon Musk is a massive influence in today’s culture.

Throughout his life, his innovation has changed our world, so the official Tesla news tells us cryptocurrency is truly here to stay.

Here’s what you need to know about Tesla’s Dogecoin policy

Tesla Dogecoin policy

What can you buy from Tesla with Dogecoin?

There will be a number of Dogecoin-eligible products on Tesla’s website with a Dogecoin symbol right next to them.

These items will give you the option to purchase them using Dogecoin cryptocurrency.

To buy something from Tesla using Doge, you’ll need to have a Dogecoin wallet, platform, app, or software that supports Dogecoin transfers.

I personally use a Coinbase wallet.

According to Tesla, the tax amount will already be included in the finalized transaction and additional fees from the Dogecoin network will also apply to your purchase.

Doge transactions will also be irreversible simply due to the nature of how the network works.

You cannot cancel an order if you’re purchasing with the cryptocurrency either.

Once your payment has been successful through the Dogecoin network, Tesla will send you an email confirmation of your purchase.

You can read more about Tesla’s cryptocurrency payment policy here.

2022 Will Be Cardano’s Biggest Year Yet [Hot Pick]

2022 will be Cardano's biggest year yet - ADA
Cardano Cryptocurrency 2022 – here’s what to look out for

Cardano (ADA) has not gained much coverage from mainstream media due to other trending topics taking over in 2021.

However, 2022 will be ADA’s biggest year yet.

There’s a lot going on with Cardano and I’m going to break it all down for you in this article.

At the end you will have a clear head to whether ADA crypto could be the right investment for you.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I’m taking you deep into ADA, what it is, how it works and why 2022 will be a hot year for the cryptocurrency.

Let’s get started!

If there’s another cryptocurrency you think I should dive deep into be sure to leave a comment below at the end of the article.

What is Cardano? What does it do?

ADA Price, what is ADA

Cardano is a blockchain and smart contracts platform with a cryptocurrency called ADA.

The Cardano blockchain was created by co-Founder of Ethereum’s proof-of-work (PoW) Charles Hoskinson, as a more efficient alternative to its counterparty.

Cardano is a third generation, decentralized proof-of-stake (PoS) block chain platform, which is basically an update from PoW enabling better costs, uses energy more efficiently, and speeds up transaction times.

Charles began developing Cardano and its primary cryptocurrency, ADA, in 2015 and launched both in 2017.

At inception, ADA’s price was only $0.11 per token, ADA’s current price is around $1.30 but has reached ATHs of more than $2.

Where will ADA price be this decade?

Keep reading to find out.

But first, why is Cardano trusted?

ADA runs on the proof-of-stake Ouroboros consensus protocol, where developments are informed by scholarly academic research.

What makes Ouroboros accelerating is that it is highly scalable and sustainably secure.

Not only is it the foundation of ADA, but of a blockchain-built future as well.

“At the heart of Ouroboros is the concept of infinity”

Cardano.org

I’m going to get more into all the innovative things ADA will be providing society with because of this technology down below.

But in short, this third-generation tech is much more advanced than that of Bitcoin and Ethereum, again, more on that below.

As society begins to step into the Metaverse, this is where we’re going to see ADA truly shine with its capabilities in blockchain technology.

ADA is technically still in development

There’s a roadmap to Cardano’s incredible madness.

This is why early adopters are getting in on ADA now before it reaches the fourth era.

Because ADA is a leader in its PoS segment, more on that below, scalability will mean you will no longer be able to invest in the cryptocurrency at this price ever again.

Let’s dive in a little deeper.

What era of Cardano are we in?

Cardano Roadmap - 5 Eras of Cardano's development
Cardano Roadmap – 5 Eras of Cardano’s development

There are 5 eras of Cardano’s development.

  1. Byron
  2. Shelley
  3. Goguen
  4. Basho
  5. Voltaire

Thy Bryon era was ADA’s foundation, Shelley was the decentralization step, and Goguen is smart contracts, the era of Cardano’s development we’re currently in.

However, we’re slowing going to begin to see a transition towards the Basho era very soon, the era of scalability.

This is where Cardano will be creating side blockchains to extend capabilities and catering to higher volume transactions.

Here we’ll see ADA’s price really begin to pick up momentum.

And finally, we have the Voltaire era.

This is the final stage in ADA’s development where Cardano will be introducing a treasury system and where network participants will be able to vote on the future developments of Cardano.

During this Era Cardano will be a leader in the crypto world as it already has the technology over Bitcoin and Ethereum.

How will Cardano change the world?

Cardano is currently what Bitcoin was to the world when it was worth only $1 per token.

Bitcoin introduced its PoW technology to the world and created a new form of transacting.

Ethereum then used the same PoW technology.

Cardano on the other hand is using a much more advanced version of transacting through staking (PoS).

You can stake your cryptocurrency with Cardano, essentially earning you interest on your cryptocurrency.

How much can you make staking Cardano?

Currently, 4.60%.

Using Ouroboros, Cardano has is able to securely, sustainably, and ethically scale up to 4 million times the energy of Bitcoin.

In real world, it will change how much more efficiently and effectively businesses make transactions and will play a massive part in the creation of NFTs and avatars in the metaverse.

Cardano and NFTs

NFTs are changing the world as we know it.

Cardano has several awesome NFT projects with many still being highly anticipated for by collectors and artists alike.

With Cardano’s NFT marketplace, gamers also now have an array of NFT gaming solutions.

Cardano NFT Marketplace Gaming
Cardano NFT Marketplace Gaming

The NFT gaming marketplace offers the gamer ownership of the in-game assets.

Literal ownership of a block in a game!

This isn’t your standard gaming process; you literally own technology though this creative way of using blockchain technology.

This new generation of mankind will be owners of technology and crypto, creating a new marketplace of bargaining, appreciation, trading, and investing.

Cardano is leading one of the most advanced and innovative ways to use blockchain technology.

As the metaverse is introduced to society, ADA will be a leader in cultivating that process.

And with the proper systems in place, Cardano will be able to handle scalability perfectly.

Thus, entering the Basho era of development.

Cardano Price Predictions

Most price predictions you see on the internet by mainstream finance platforms fail to recognize the massive impact Cardano will have on society at a macro scale.

As the metaverse continues to unfold this decade, Cardano’s prices will eventually level up to Ethereum prices.

The reason being is that ADA has a fixed supply of 45 billion tokens.

When you take into consideration how cheap ADA is at the moment, as metaverse begins to take over, investors and businesses are going to flock to Cardano’s leading technology and crypto.

And because it is fixed, like Bitcoin, a surge in demand is going to create incredible growth in the next few decades.

Where will ADA price be in 2022?

Founder Charles Hoskinson is predicting Cardano will skyrocket to $20 per token in 2022.

Charles Hoskinson Cardano Price Prediction 2022

If ADA reaches $20 per token this year, investors will nearly 20x their investments from today’s current crypto price.

Before we know it, investors and traders alike will ask themselves how they missed this.

ADA is not a short-term play although it has much short-term growth capabilities.

You’ll want to hold Cardano long-term for appreciation as it goes through new eras of its development and use in the real-world and metaverse.

Can ADA reach Bitcoin numbers?

Taking into consideration the incredible scalability metrics ADA has through its blockchain, reaching Bitcoin numbers is certainly not impossible.

This of course would take time, but the cryptocurrency is scarce meaning supply and demand can take the price to unprecedented numbers.

Cardano is a sleeper crypto waiting to be awoken by not only investors, but by the technology and companies that will need it very soon.

Is Cardano (ADA) a buy?

Cardano is most certainly a buy if you’re looking at its long-term appreciation, scalability, and contribution to society in a blockchain and crypto-innovative world.

It’s hard to imagine that Bitcoin and Ethereum were also once trading at ADA’s current token price.

What is the difference between first and second generation blockchain and third generation blockchain?

The third generation blockchain such as Cardano has higher scalability, higher transaction speeds, and consumes less energy unlike the first and second generations, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

ADA’s current price is only a time stamp of where Bitcoin and Ethereum once were in our timelines as well.

Where can I buy Cardano (ADA)?

You can buy Cardano through a variety of platforms, but I personally use Coinbase because it’s secure and very easy to use.

ADA is sitting triumphally amongst the top 10 most popular cryptocurrencies in the crypto market.

It’s yielded investors a whopping 7,330.54% return since its inception in late 2017.

What I find incredible is that this is only the beginning for ADA.

If you could go back in time today and secure Bitcoin or Ethereum at $1, would you?

I have a feeling ADA is that opportunity again.

Citadel Securities Gets $1.2B Lifeline from Sequoia and Paradigm

Citadel Securities gets $1.2 billion lifeline from Sequoia and Paradigm
Citadel receives private funding for the first time ever

Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin just received a nearly $1.2 billion lifeline from Sequoia and Paradigm.

This is the first time Citadel Securities has ever required private funding to stay afloat.

The hedge fund lost billions of dollars in 2021 due to overleveraging their positions in so called ‘meme stocks’.

Now Sequoia and Paradigm are partnering up with the hedge fund to raise the company’s valuation.

While Citadel Securities processes more than 40% of retail trades, they are now looking to broaden into new markets, including the crypto space.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – Citadel Securities has made it incredibly hard for customers to withdrawal their money. Now, for the first time ever are receiving private funding.

Is the hedge fund in trouble?

Let’s get stared!

Citadel Securities and crypto?

Paradigm is active in crypto companies; a space Ken Griffin has been open about not being too fond over.

If you hold cryptocurrency, leave a comment below letting the community know how you feel about this massive hedge fund joining the space to short crypto.

I doubt Ken Griffin will be offering crypto investment options for long-term price appreciation.

Here’s Ken Griffin’s take on cryptocurrency.

Ken Griffin on crypto

Where is Citadel Securites headed in 2022?

Citadel Securities Sequoia Paradigm

The company’s new valuation puts Citadel Securities at $22 billion.

The hedge fund has proven to create massive systemic risk, even now as it continues to overleverage its short position in ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC Entertainment.

Will it finally cut its ties to the ‘meme stock’ community and broaden its market?

Or will it use every bit of capital they can to keep up with margin requirements in these plays?

The ‘ape community’ continues to fight for a fair market

Retail investors have been exposing Citadel Securities for unfair market practices.

Share price from heavily shorted stocks have been suppressed by hedge funds through a variety of market manipulation tactics.

CNBC’s Melissa Lee and Fox Business’s Charles Payne have called out the use of naked shorting in the markets too.

Dark pool trading in AMC and GME stock have gone as high as 60%-90%.

The community has recently uncovered how private ‘family offices’ also provide hedge funds with a loophole to unregulated trading; as seen with Archegos Capital.

Retail investors in the ape community have scrutinized Citadel Securities for imposing predatorial strategies that will prevent them from getting squeezed from their overleveraged short positions.

The SEC might have turned the cheek, but retail investors aren’t leaving.

Family Offices Are Unregulated Hedge Funds [Exposed]

Family offices are unregulated hedge funds
Bill Hwang – founder of family office Archegos Capital

Incredible information has surfaced from the community in regard to unregulated hedge funds posing as family offices.

This industry holds trillions of dollars in assets globally with about 40% being held in the United States.

What’s more alarming is that these family offices aren’t regulated nor registered with the SEC (Securities Exchange Commission), allowing financial institutions to use this network of unregulated trading to their advantage.

In this article we’re going to dive deep into the seriousness of this inequality in the markets.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that protects retail investors from injustices in the markets. Today we’re discussing a loophole in the market that has been overlooked.

Let’s get started!

The inception of Archegos family office

Family offices Archegos

A well-known ‘family office’ you might have heard of is Archegos Capital, founded by Bill Hwang.

Archegos family office had $120 billion total exposure according to Credit Suisse Report, causing $10 billion in trading losses to the world’s largest banks.

Two of which included Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley.

Bill Hwang was mentored by hedge fund expert Julian Robertson from Tiger Asia Management and Tiger Asia Partners, a hedge fund that was shut down by the U.S in 2012 for insider trading and manipulating Chinese stocks.

After getting banned from the investment advisory industry and a $44 million settlement with the SEC, Bill Hwang set up his family office, Archegos Capital.

Already with a history in crime, Bill Hwang’s family office was able to get away with several billions of dollars in stock positions due to the lack of regulatory measures.

The Archegos incident is currently known as one of the largest public margin calls in family offices, for now that is.

This shadow industry manages twice more assets than hedge funds registered with the SEC.

Family offices managing trillions in assets

Family Offices trillions in assets
Private offices own approximately twice in assets than hedge funds

Family offices are an unregulated corner of the financial marketplace with an estimated $6 to $7 trillion in assets under management (compared to $3.4 trillion in global hedge funds), via. Inequality.

Archegos revealed that family offices can create systemic risk due to their size, lack of regulation, and growing interest in ‘speculative investments’.

These growing interests in speculative investments may include the shorting of so called ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop.

Hedge funds have been overleveraging their short positions in these stocks speculating the companies would go bankrupt shortly after the pandemic.

However, retail investors buying and holding the stock have caused hedge funds betting against these companies to lose billions of dollars.

To refrain from causing their clients further turmoil, we’ve seen an incredible amount of shorting happen in these stocks.

Anomalies in the stocks derive from either naked shorting, a network of unregulated trading, or both.

Hedge funds have used an array of loopholes to suppress the stock price of both AMC and GameStop to minimize consequential losses.

And the retail community is making a lot of noise.

Why aren’t these family offices regulated?

SEC

Those in favor of family offices believe light oversight is justified because these offices only serve private families.

Because they are not serving multiple clients, they believe these offices should not be subject to scrutiny.

Should these businesses be regulated and registered with the SEC?

I’d love to know your thoughts, leave a comment below.

The good news is that we have a New York Congresswoman by the name of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from the House Financial Committee, introducing a bill that would fight to regulate these family offices.

She’s introducing HR 4620, the Family Office Regulation Act of 2021.

After the massive liquidation from Archegos Capital, regulators are seeking to gain access to private information from these family offices in order to mitigate risk.

Hedge funds have incredible access to market manipulation

Market manipulation

Hedge fund industry expert, Charles Gradante has mentioned market makers are in favor of short selling.

In an infinite pool of access to capital from banks, the feds, and family offices, it’s going to take much more than the SEC to regulate the market.

New systems must be put into place, organizations, and activist groups to speak on the matter publicly.

The retail community holding ‘meme stocks’ has sparked a movement to raise awareness surrounding the market manipulation from all complicit parties.

These offices have also moved into the crypto market which could explain the massive liquidity we’re seeing today.

Hedge funds and private offices need to be regulated to prevent market manipulation and systemic risk.

While retail investors bet on the rise and well-being of a company, financial institutions suppress the growth of stocks, posing a major threat to our economy.

China banned Citadel Securities due to “malicious short-selling”, the United States needs to do the same thing.

These massive hedge funds have an incredible network to overleverage their short positions in emerging and growing companies.

Private offices create an extension for hedge funds to short stocks without reporting their positions to the SEC.

And while not all family offices are a loophole for hedge funds, the ‘ape community’ continues to be right.

Proof of Naked Shares in AMC Has Surfaced [Data Driven]

Proof of naked shares in AMC

The incredible retail community is diving deep into collecting proof of naked shares in the market.

But more specifically in AMC stock.

In a case study done by Log the Float, the data shows more than 128 million shares of AMC were sold on Apex (clearing house), or 43.01% of AMC’s entire float.

It also equivalates to 24.99% of the shares outstanding.

Apex AMC naked shares

Below I break down their proof of naked shorting in AMC.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – proof of naked shorting has surfaced in a data driven article by a community member. I will break down pieces of the long article to simply its content.

Let’s get started!

In this excel file you’ll find that AMC has the largest percentage of shares outstanding compared to a variety of ticker symbols held by Apex.

The second company with the highest shares outstanding is CAR stock at 16%, which just had a short squeeze.

Car Stock Short Squeeze Chart

Proof of Naked Shorting in AMC

AMC naked shares on Apex
Naked shares AMC

The lowest point of this graph reflects the 24.99% shares outstanding on Apex (December).

You can imagine how much higher this percentage was back in January and May of 2021 (peaks).

So, although we see an incredible amount of share dilution last year, the percentage is still rather high going into 2022.

LTF argues that the percentage should be around 1% or less considering Apex is not even one of the top clearing firms and touches topic on “market-maker alliance”.

While one might argue that we would need more information from other market makers to validate the existence of naked shares, this is certainly a good start.

The argument isn’t about how many naked shares are out there, but whether they exist or not.

Let’s hear what Charles Gradante has to say.

Also, be sure to watch the topic discussion on YouTube at the end of the article.

Charles Gradante on Naked Shorting

In this incredible event panel, hedge fund industry expert Charles Gradante provides us with insight on what’s truly happening from Wall Street’s perspective that mainstream media isn’t talking about.

While mainstream media and regulators look at retail investors, Charles Gradante explains market makers favor shorting stock, creating a massive conflict of interest given the incredible amount of power they have over the markets.

Charles Gradante on meme stocks and market makers

Charles Gradante says regulators don’t know how to handle “it” when referring to the market manipulation surrounding “meme stocks”.

“When shorting got out of hand, the market makers created synthetic shorts”

Charles Gradante

Charles provides retail investors with an immense amount of value in this short video.

He walks us through the taking away of the buy button in order to benefit market makers and hedge funds who went short on AMC and GameStop.

Ladies and gentlemen, we now have proof of naked shares in the market.

Retail investors must now look onto regulators to ensure every single naked share out there is bought back and reflected accurately on the lit market.

The biggest transfer of wealth will require individuals to tackle their rights for it.

Once again, the ape community was right.

What to expect moving forward

franknez.com

AMC stock continues to be bought and held by retail investors across the world in attempts to squeeze big shorts from their positions and create real change in the markets.

The play has become more than just a trade, it’s become a movement.

Persistence and patience are what will create this massive transfer of wealth for anyone holding these heavily and overleveraged stocks.

Regulators will be forced to find solutions with integrity or face the consequences from the new world.
