What Will Trigger AMC To Short Squeeze?

what will trigger amc to squeeze

A lot of new retail investors have bought AMC stock and are wondering what will trigger AMC to short squeeze.

What started from small data between a subcommunity turned into a mainstream phenomenon.

And along the way, the community managed to resurrect a century old movie theater chain.

Yet, mainstream media will tell you poor fundamentals are the reason why we should bankrupt the theater chain instead.

But we love the movies and we especially love the stock.

A short squeeze play doesn’t depend on a companies fundamentals, but rather on how much stock is being borrowed to short it.

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights against FUD and gives our community a media platform.

Let’s get started!

Chemtrail Of News

AMC News

There’s been a chemtrail of AMC news all year that have been part of this incredible journey.

From the community fighting regulators for a fair market, to leaked transcripts between Citadel and Robinhood during the January halts.

All this documentation will serve its purpose for a greater change.

But what will ultimately trigger AMC to squeeze?

Is there a specific catalyst that will cause the share price to skyrocket past the moon?

Or is everything tied to the tiresome battles against nefarious hedge fund tactics?

What Pushed AMC To $20 Per Share In January?

amc january

I missed the momentum that lead AMC to reach $20 per share back in late January.

But let me tell you, I sure didn’t miss the runup to $70.

And to be quite frank with you, I won’t miss the one going past $100 per share either.

So, what allowed AMC to experience these drastic upswings anyway?

Most people heard AMC was going to go up and they bought the stock. Before they knew it, it kept surging!

The stock has set a new bottom since it’s runup to $70, and is now cruising around $40 per share.

What will trigger AMC’s next runup?

It’s volume.

Volume propelled AMC to $20 per share, it propelled it to $70 per share, and volume is what’s going to propel AMC to $100 and beyond.

The sentiment is all in the volume.

Volume tells us how many retail investors are excited and frantic about a specific security.

If the volume goes down, expect a security to consolidate.

“We’re Going To Hold Until Shorts Cover”

If only it worked that way. You see, new short sellers can enter AMC at $40 per share and profit $5-$10 as the stock hits $30-$35 again.

The community is the only reason why AMC has a strong resistance.

We keep holding.

But it’s going to take a lot more than just holding the stock.

What drove AMC to $20 the first time, and $70 the second was not simply holding, but buying the stock too.

I’ve taken notice that the community has grown tired of ‘hodling till MOASS’.

There is no free ride here.

You don’t just buy one share of AMC stock and expect it to hit $100,000 because someone said it was hitting $100,000.

You cannot participate in a momentum play, and not put in momentum.

The retail investors that participated in the runup to $20 and $70 all put in momentum.

Holding without applying buying pressure is going to result in exhausting your conviction towards this short squeeze play.

You’re The Catalyst, Stop Looking

AMC Catalyst

“It’s their fault”, “this has to happen” – we need to stop trying to cut corners.

I’ve been guilty of this myself.

But it all comes back down to, what triggered AMC to move up?

Action did. Massive action caused massive change in AMC’s share price.

With enough pressure, retail investors will be able to surge AMC’s share price high enough to create short seller panic.

Thus, initiating shorts to cover their positions in AMC and further driving up the share price.

As more of them close their positions, retail investors would have triggered AMC to squeeze.

Not the SEC, not a regulation, but retail investors.

A lot of you continue to buy the stock. A short squeeze will require more than just a lot of us though, it’s going to require buying en masse.

Give More Than You Take

We cannot blatantly sit around and wait for others to take us where we want to go.

You need to be accountable for your own actions and your own wants and desires.

I get asked quite frequently, “when’s the next runup”, “when’s the next runup?”

My question to you is when did you last buy AMC stock?

Those of you on my Patreon have a history of my personal AMC transactions throughout the year.

I’ve been buying the stock since February, even when I was facing $9,000 in losses. Now I’m up because I took action.

And if you’re profitable too it’s because you took action even when you were down.

So what’s the pattern here? Why are people profitable? Because they took action and didn’t depend on anyone to come save them.

What will trigger AMC to squeeze? You will.

Is this financial advice? Hell no. It’s real talk.

AMC’s Volume Shows Community Sentiment

AMC’s volume has been below it’s average volume. The average volume has been plunging since both runups this year.

The volume tells a story, and this current volume shows moping.

Some may argue volume doesn’t matter because of dark pool trading or because of unlimited supply of lendable shares to short the stock.

However, the volume history during the previous runups has said otherwise.

Volume matters.

How Long Will It Take Until AMC Squeezes?

In short, as long as it takes for momentum and buying pressure to occur again.

Retail investors have the chance to trigger a short squeeze through momentum and serious buying pressure.

AMC Volume Trigger

We can tell from looking at past volume patterns how important volume played a role in AMC’s previous upswing.

This momentum may be instant and short term and may happen at any moment.

Otherwise, some sort of FOMO catalyst may drive that momentum back in several months from now.

How long it takes for AMC to squeeze will depend on retail sentiment and drive.

Why Is Citadel Securities Frightened Of The IEX Exchange?

IEX AMC

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.

franknez.com

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

IEX Exchange

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?

Citadel

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?

AMC 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?

AMC 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.

They’ve found over several tests that not only does the AI match prices but also sets new and higher prices in the market.

The IEX Exchange would give the market a much needed refresh that would allow stocks to perform significantly better than the current model.

IEX Order Displayed Orders Improving
IEX Displayed Orders Improving

This is the closest we’ve come to restructuring the markets and is massively bullish in my opinion.

For our community to be part of this incredible innovation alone is a massive win.

This is what we do. People like us fight for a fair market.

And whether this D-Limit order type goes through or not, this is what we’re going to be known for.

Our community is a beacon for change.

Here’s Why People Need To Get In On AMC Stock Right Now

AMC Stock
Will you miss AMC’s short squeeze?

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.

franknez.com

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.

Will This Third Runup Squeeze Big Shorts?

Hedge funds have been losing billions of dollars all year from overleveraging their short positions in both AMC and GME stock.

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.

SEC Gov. Report On Equity and Options Market Structure
SEC Gov. Report On Equity and Options Market Structure Source: Page 26

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

Short Squeeze Volume

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.

GameStop Short Squeeze SEC Report

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?

Citadel Fights The SEC On New D-Limit Order Against Arbitrage

Citadel vs SEC Court Hearing On October 25th
Citadel Securities LLC v. SEC October 25th | Citadel Securities sues SEC

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.

β€œThe 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.

franknez.com

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?

SEC

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.

Source –> Link

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.

Citadel enjoys unfair advantages over other market participants
Source: page 13

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?

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.

Final Words…

The SEC Is Looking Into Citadel Securities’ Business Model

The SEC is looking into Citadel Securities Business Model
SEC has launched inquiry into Citadel that targets part of its business model

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?

franknez.com

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.

Fox Business Live Citadel Video

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

SEC looking into Citadel

The SEC poses a threat to hedge funds through a rule that would enable them to receive short sale disclosure periodically.

The rule may go into effect as early as November. You can read more about it here.

Needless to say, there’s massive change happening in the markets whether we realize it or not.

This change has been happening over a period of 10 months now.

Market regulation that allows retail investors to participate in a fair market could very well be the catalyst for a short squeeze.

By eliminating suppressing forces in the market, we give AMC and GME stock an open runway to move up in a supply and demand play.

Massive buying pressure from retail could force short sellers to close their positions as the price begins to experience larger upswings again.

Apes will have to continue to fight for a fair market and hold the stock if we are to squeeze hedge funds from their positions.

Hedge Funds Face Short Sale Disclosure From The SEC

Short Sale Disclosure
Short Sale Disclosure is big news for retail investors

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’.

franknez.com

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; monumental change 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.

Criminal In A Seat Of Power: Rep. David Scott Attacks Retail

David Scott Retail investors
David Scott VS Retail Investors

Rep. David Scott of Congress was once named one of the top 25 most corrupt members of Congress by the political watchdog group of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in 2007.

Now he wants to put a bill that will make it hard for retail investors to participate in the stock market and even implement jail time for users on social media…

Yeah this is not going to go well.. at least for rep. David Scott it’s not.

franknez.com rep david scott

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights for your financial freedom. Today I want to discuss why our community continues to be a beacon for change against market manipulation.

Let’s get started!

Leaders are getting desperate. Retail investors are fighting for a fair market and are now getting attacked for doing so.

I said this on Twitter earlier, it’s going to take every single one of us to make change happen. And although it might not seem like it at the moment, we’ve made quite some progress already.

We’re on the radar now and our voice is being heard. I believe that those who aren’t in favor of a fair market should be looked at very closely.

David Scott Gets Intimidated By The Power of Social Media

I’m not sure if David Scott knows this or not but social media is not a new concept and it’s certainly not going anywhere any time soon.

That is unless Mark Zuckerberg halts the spread of powerful information again, smh.

Social media platforms have allowed communities and people to have a voice they couldn’t otherwise have had decades ago.

When the people begin to make noise for change, they are often ridiculed or labeled as conspiracy theorists as a way to shut down the voice.

Billionaire Grant Cardone just mentioned this on Twitter following the insider scandals occurring within our financial systems.

The truth is, it’s time to pass the torch.

David Scott wants to make it hard for ordinary people to invest in the stock market. This is something I’m 1000% against for.

I believe everyone should have the right to participate in a fair market where they can invest in their favorite companies and also create generational wealth.

FrankNez teaches people how begin investing in both stocks and in crypto. To take this away from the people is blatant manipulation and tyranny in it’s rawest form.

You can’t get mad for losing millions of dollars in the market and then say you want to create a bill so that no one else can play against you. The world doesn’t work that way.

You can see chairman of the SEC Gary Gensler almost pull a smile from hearing David Scott speak. I think this is a clear indication that the SEC has no intention in letting this happen.

What Do You Think?

Do you think Gary Gensler will allow this narrative to become a reality? Let me know in the comment section below or vote on this Twitter poll.

Not a lot of people have faith in Gary Gensler or the SEC but can you imagine the heroes they’d be if they liquidated short sellers and actually began protecting retail from market manipulation?

They would make history!

That’s the kind of power and legacy our leaders have at the moment. The new world we live in rewards its heroes and honors them.

Gary Gensler and the SEC have two very important paths they can choose from. My advice to them? Have courage.

So instead of bashing Gary Gensler and the SEC, I believe we should be encouraging them instead. Because courage isn’t easy, it’s difficult.

It takes courage to stand up for something, it takes courage to make a difference, it takes courage.

Insider Trading Is The Real Problem, Not Retail

Representative David Scott only put a magnifying glass on himself. How about we tackle insider trading and injustices within our own financial system first.

Let’s start at the root. Fed’s Kaplan and Rosengren have already been caught in a scandal regarding insider trading. Policy makers should not be allowed to participate in the markets.

This gives them way too much leverage and allows them to bend rules in their favor. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the real problem – not retail investors.

And those against a fair market know this. But greed doesn’t care about fair. Greed cares about greed.

Gary Gensler knows that prohibiting people from participating in the markets is a direct violation of his duties to serve the people.

I don’t see the chair of the SEC backing up rep. David Scott on his delusional vision of implementing jail time for discussions about stocks on social media.

How are you going to put millions of people in jail for voicing their thoughts and opinions on social media? Guys, I know you can’t see me but I’m facepalming right now.

Let’s not attack David Scott though, the poor man is lacking something significant in his life. No person with their head screwed on right thinks of taking the rights of another human being.

Let’s address the issue civilly.

Can The Government Stop Retail Investors From Trading Stock?

Absolutely not. Any bill preventing the people from trading in a public company is a direct violation of the people’s freedom.

Capitalism is the American way. We have to right to create businesses, establish and donate to charities, as well as support and invest in innovative companies that serve us as consumers.

Limiting who can and can’t trade in the stock market would cause an uproar. CEO’s and influential entrepreneurs thrive from investor relations.

Businesses and investors alike would not support this. Preventing the people from a fair market is un-American.

Americans and our allies will fight for our freedom whether corrupt politicians like it or not. It’s what our founders have done and it’s the reason why the people will always win.

Bank of America Has Been Illegally Shorting AMC Stock

Bank of America has been shorting AMC Stock

If you bank with Bank of America chances are they’ve been using your hard earned money to short AMC stock. Financial institutions have been shorting AMC stock all year, resulting in billions of dollars in losses.

Bank of America also has a 75% probability of going bankrupt according to sources. The shorting of meme stocks could explain why the bank is currently facing liquidity issues.

Franknez.com Bank of America bankruptcy

Welcome to Franknez.com – so much information is coming to fruition. I’m piecing bits of information that have been revealed in the last few weeks and days.

Let’s get started!

Information from one of my articles has been circulating the entire community recently. In this article, I go over how AMC continues to be the most shorted stock in the market. This is going to be a very important piece of info.

Bank of America Is Shorting AMC Stock

Bank of America is on the list of the top 10 institutions shorting AMC stock. BofA is known for being an untrustworthy bank for the people so it comes as no surprise.

They’ve been cheating the system by demanding printed money from the feds to lend to short sellers. The insane part of this scheme is that everyone is a part of it.

I’ll touch topic on that below.

Bank of America shorting AMC Stock
SOURCE

A lot of the puzzle pieces seem to be connecting now. Boston and Dallas Fed presidents Kaplan and Rosengren were fired due to investing in securities while playing a major role in creating monetary policy.

Repos have been at record high this year. The feds have been pumping so much money into the financial systems for banks and hedge funds to maintain margin requirements from.

Hedge funds have been overleveraging their positions due to betting against retail investors who aren’t giving up the fight for a fair market, and a short squeeze play in their favorite ‘meme stocks’.

Now, 34 of the largest banks are being required to hold $1 trillion in capital, enough to be able to loan mortgages and business loans during an economic downturn such as a recession.

Will banks margin call hedge funds to meet the new capital requirements as of October 1st? Or will they default?

Hedge Funds Just Got Smaller

We’re beginning to see financial institutions throw other institutions under the bus. Citadel began pointing fingers towards Robinhood during a rant on Twitter.

I think very soon we’re going to see banks do the same towards hedge funds. Will hedge funds be able to pay back banks? Someone has to pay back the overleveraged debt they owe.

What started from a Robinhood and Citadel scandal just climbed the hierarchy and is now involving both the banks and feds.

This could be the biggest financial scandal in history.

Is America Headed Towards Financial Collapse?

Janet Yellen Hedge Funds

Janet Yellen just recently said, “there are issues relating to hedge funds and the possibility of leverage, they can trigger financial runs.” So, we know that any chance of financial ruin in the markets is tied to overleveraged hedge funds and financial institutions.

Hedge funds have been borrowing money from both the banks and the feds. The feds weren’t stopping overleveraged institutions from borrowing money, but rather contributing to their needs and gaining from them, as seen with Kaplan and Rosengren.

It seems leaders are washing their hands before these scandals continue to escalate.

A substantial portion of Citadel’s assets are held by Bank of America’s clearing house “BAML“. Powerful leaders are fleeing the crime scene. Who are the first to flee a sinking ship? Leave a comment below if you know the answer to this one.

Will Bank of America Go Bankrupt?

Bank of America has a ‘more than 75%’ probability score for bankruptcy, via MacroAxis. The fact is there is no path that can save overleveraged institutions or short sellers betting against retail investors right now. The future of the short seller is grim.

Bank of America bankruptcy

To make matter worse for the bank, retail investors are pulling their money out from the bank before things get a little more severe. In fact, one of my personal family members just moved 98% of their money from BofA into a brokerage account.

Overleveraged hedge funds and banks will be the cause of the next financial collapse.

Something massive is coming very soon and I know the community can feel it. I speculate paper-hand sellers will soon re-enter the markets as the first wave of short sellers begin to close out their positions.

This momentum will only further complicate the state of emergency these financial institutions are currently in.

What Happens If A Bank Goes Bankrupt?

If a bank goes bankrupt, the FDIC must collect and sell the assets of the bank and settle its debt.

For AMC and GME shareholders, this means that all the shares that were borrowed will finally get bought back. Heavily shorted stocks would skyrocket as overleveraged debt is finally closed out.

The results? MOASS (mother of all short squeezes).

The momentum from billions of shares being bought back could push ‘meme stocks’ to unprecedented numbers.

Whether Bank of America goes bankrupt will depend on whether they file for bankruptcy protection or not.

A short squeeze play is imminent and there’s no doubt financial institutions are preparing for it.

The Stock Market Is Rigged

“The stock market is a rigged game for the wealthy as corporate execs can hide behind trading plans as they buy or sell stock, sometimes based on nonpublic information.” via ZeroHedge.

We’re seeing this happen right before our very own eyes. Fed presidents Kaplan and Rosengren were using their power to mold regulation in theirs and their partners favor.

Bank of America has been a liquidity refuge for Citadel, allowing them to overleverage their positions in heavily shorted stock without repercussions.

We saw that Robinhood executives sold AMC and GME stock right before halting trading back in January of this year. The Citadel scandal has been the talks all over Reddit and Twitter. Citadel and Robinhood had communication about which ticker symbols would be halted.

The stock market is a device that has been created for the wealthy to leverage their wealth to build more wealth. The SEC has proven to have little to no power.

Now, that doesn’t mean retail investors don’t have a chance at the market. Corporate executives simply have a much stronger edge.

Our voice and DD have been very powerful tools in fighting corruption in the markets. We’ve been able to inform the public of what’s been occurring all while setting ourselves up for an immense short squeeze play.

What a journey.

The Greatest Transfer Of Wealth Is Commencing

I believe this scheme revolving shorting meme stocks is finally coming to a close. Empires are crumbling and new ones will rise.

But before new ones rise, retail investors would have made history by beating the financial system at its own game first.

It seems more information is being revealed with each day that passes. I don’t think retail investors have had an upper hand like this before. And unfortunately for short sellers, they’re about to get burned again. This time for good.

Gary Gensler Under Fire By Retail Investors [Leak]

Gary Gensler Under Fire By Retail Investors. When Will The SEC Step In
Will Gary Gensler protect retail investors from naked shorting and dark pool abuse?

The heat has been turned up. All eyes are on #KenGriffinLied, Gary Gensler, FINRA, and other regulators.

Financial institutions are calling retail investors conspiracy theorists despite a variety of proof leaked across social media. Transcripts, real messages regarding the manipulation that occurred in the markets preventing investors from buying GameStop and AMC stock are beginning to wake up a sleeping giant.

Retail investors cannot be gaslighted. This attention has reached many finance and business personalities including Charles Payne of FOX Business. And he wants to get Ken Griffin or Vlad Tenev on his show.

franknez.com gary gensler

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights to protect retail investors against tyranny. Today I’m calling out regulators.

Let’s get started!

Citadel Securities Denies Allegations

Apes have been raising awareness of the manipulation tactics in the market caused by Citadel Securities, Citadel LLC, and Citadel Connect… yeah it’s the same company.

See, the problem is one branch is a market maker, one is a hedge fund, and the other is a dark pool.

Since Citadel is one of the biggest hedge funds and market makers, it gives retail a massive disadvantage because of how their orders are processed.

One company is shorting AMC and GME stock, the other is creating failure-to-delivers, and the third is hiding buying pressure through dark pool processing and trading.

Financial regulators such as the SEC and FINRA are supposed to be protecting retail investors from this very exact type of manipulation.

The AMC and GameStop community have been looking at Gary Gensler, Chairman and President of the SEC to act. And now, the world is looking too.

“Justice delayed is justice denied”

William E. Gladstone

#KenGriffinLied Files Lawsuit Against Flying Company

The AMC community has been flying banners all year. The community gathered to further spread trending Twitter hashtag “#KenGriffinLied” but was halted from doing so through a law suit.

#KenGriffinLied started trending on Twitter when transcripts of coversations between Citadel and Robinhood insiders took place regarding the halt of trading meme stocks earlier this year.

Ken Griffin under oath said his team had no communication with Robinhood’s team in regards to halting trades. The transcripts show there was communication a day prior to the halts.

You can view them here.

AMC Plane Banner

Robinhood Sold AMC Portfolio Before Halts

More transcripts have come out regarding the communication between Robinhood and Citadel Securities.

Now that you’ve seen the transcripts between Citadel and Robinhood, the transcripts below will make sense. Two Citadel executives confirm the ‘closing only’ positions of AMC, GME, NOK, BB, and NAKD just to name a few.

Robinhood’s COO, Jim Swartwout said in an internal chat “I sold my AMC today. FYI – tomorrow morning we are moving GME to 100% – so you are aware.” This chat is dated from January 26, 2021. Just two days before trading was halted.

Robinhood sold GameStop stock on January 27, 2021 when it was up more than 1200% before halting trading for everyone else. This blatant manipulation has yet to be addressed by Gary Gensler and financial institutions.

When will the SEC step in to protect retail investors?

Robinhood sold AMC stock before halting trading
Robinhood sold AMC and GameStop stock before halting trades

The halting of ‘meme stocks’ occurred on Thursday, January 28, 2021 and trading resumed on Friday, February 5, 2021.

FINRA Bypassed The Market Manipulation

In another transcript, Citadel Securities Senior Vice President discusses with another Citadel executive on the need to inform FINRA of expectations around a plan for PCO symbols and to expect an increase in complain ‘impact’.

These PCO symbols were AMC, GME, NOK, and BB.

Who Is FINRA?

FINRA is a private American corporation that acts as a self-regulatory organization which regulates member brokerage firms and exchange markets.

Check out what their ‘about’ page says:

“FINRA is authorized by Congress to protect America’s investors by making sure the broker-dealer industry operates fairly and honestly. We oversee more than 624,000 brokers across the countryβ€”and analyze billions of daily market events.

We use innovative AI and machine learning technologies to keep a close eye on the market and provide essential support to investors, regulators, policymakers and other stakeholders.”

This could very well be the AI technology that Citadel uses to track and predict how investors trade in the market. This advantage could be used against retail investors given that Citadel and other hedge funds have been losing billions of dollars from ‘meme stocks’.

Regulators portray to the world that their jobs are to protect retail investors and to ensure the integrity of the markets.

However, they have proven to merely be a tool for someone else’s gain. I speculate lobbying.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”

Martin Luther King

Who Oversees FINRA?

The SEC oversees FINRA as well as other financial institutions in the market. They are granted the power and authority through congress to make real change happen.

So why isn’t Gary Gensler taking action?

Missing Gary Gensler Have You Seen Me

Although we’d like to think the SEC is on the sidelines coming up with solutions, we have not heard from Gary Gensler in regards to the market manipulation that continues to occur with AMC and GameStop.

Mainstream media is finally shedding light on these problems. Now we just need our leaders to begin taking action towards a definitive solution.

What Do Retail Investors Want From The SEC?

Retail investors want a chance at a fair market where the stock they are invested in is not manipulated through naked shorting and dark pool trading.

  1. Eliminate dark pool trading
  2. Ban naked shorting / FTDs
  3. Liquidate/margin call overleveraged hedge funds

Hedge funds shorting AMC, GameStop, and other ‘meme stocks’ are preventing retail investors from participating in a fair market.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen just stated, “there are issues relating to hedge funds and the possibility of leverage..”

You can read the full article here.

Hedge funds are also proving to be the cause of disaster in the markets and are a real threat to the American people.

These financial institutions have been the culprits of devastating economic recessions throughout history. The Feds have just as much of a role to play as the SEC does. The Feds are currently dealing with their own scandal too.

Policy makers are stepping down for illegally trading in securities and playing major roles in monetary policies.

The American people and those who stand by us are holding our leaders accountable. Gary Gensler and the SEC should have taken action many months ago. The next best time to take action is now.

“Injustice alone can shake down the pillars of the skies, and restore the reign of Chaos and Night”

Horace mann

Is AMC A Pump And Dump? [Details]

Is AMC A Pump And Dump?
Is AMC A Pump And Dump?

I’ve recently come across some speculation that AMC is some sort of pump and dump that’s being promoted for a select few to benefit from.

And although mainstream media has been saying this for quite some time, have you ever really given it any thought?

I have to cover this because I want to protect you. Somebody has to ask the hard questions right? Is AMC a pump and dump?

franknez.com amc stock

Welcome to Franknez.com – information landed on my lap last night that led me to some deep digging and serious thought. Let’s identify what a pump and dump actually means.

Let’s get started!

How Did The AMC Movement Start?

The GameStop fiasco was going on for quite some time before it became mainstream. GME stock didn’t begin to move up until some time in late October and began to squeeze in late January.

It wasn’t until Redditors noticed AMC was also being heavily shorted early this year. A few of these retail investors were able to buy AMC stock before it gamma squeezed to $20+ per share.

One of the retail investors who was able to get in just days before the runup was Trey Collins from Trey’s Trades. I got in as the stock was coming down, I had not seen Trey’s content at this point.

It was during this time that Robinhood halted buying GameStop, AMC, Blackberry, and other heavily shorted stocks, and the scandal began.

Trey saw that AMC stock still had high short interest and a high utilization rate. These two data figures is what allowed us to build a strong conviction towards a higher share price.

High short interest meant shorts could potentially get squeezed out of their positions with enough momentum and buying pressure.

The data spread like wildfire.

People were excited about the data. Retail investors heard of what happened with GameStop and experienced FOMO to some degree knowing AMC could potentially have a similar runup.

Retail investors at this point are getting in for a short squeeze play.

AMC Retail Investors Get Ridiculed

The media was quick to ridicule average people buying stock. See, opportunity in the stock market in general is not meant to get passed down to the general public.

It’s a game that’s been hidden from ‘average people’ so to speak, to keep classes in line.

When Franknez.com went live on January 1st of 2020, my goal was to spread financial literacy, teach people how to begin investing in stocks, and to help people create a plan to build wealth.

My platform has always been a place for self-education.

When The Fool, MarketWatch, Benzinga, InvestorPlace, and other financial platforms began attacking the community, I couldn’t bear to see people get pushed around.

If you’ve heard my story before, I didn’t want to write about AMC on my blog. But something told me that this platform was created for the purpose of harnessing information that could change the lives of people.

So, I took it upon myself to stand up for the community and publicly share the information that Trey and other TA analysts were discovering. Before I knew it, we were fighting corruption and our goal has been to make real change in the markets happen.

Only then will we see proper price action in AMC and GME stock.

What Is A Pump And Dump?

A pump and dump is where a group of investors promote a specific stock to pump its price up through buying pressure and then selling off during high runups. Pump and dumps are usually orchestrated from the get-go and die off rather quickly.

Here’s the definition from Investopedia:

“Pump-and-dump is a manipulative scheme that attempts to boost the price of a stock or security through fake recommendations. These recommendations are based on false, misleading, or greatly exaggerated statements. The perpetrators of a pump-and-dump scheme already have an established position in the company’s stock and will sell their positions after the hype has led to a higher share price.” – Investopedia

How Do We Compare This To AMC?

How can we use this information to separate what’s occurring with AMC and what an actual pump and dump means?

  1. Retail investors have been spreading knowledge, not recommendations. Real apes, people – not bots.
  2. The information provided has not been false or misleading. High short interest, high utilization rate, naked shorting, dark pool trading, it’s all real. These are all facts provided by software that tracks this data in the markets. No one is making this up and mainstream media has finally shed light on this real problem.
  3. The AMC community has not sold their stock, even during the highs. Selloffs from institutions combined with short laddering explains why AMC’s stock price has been going down after spikes. That is something our community ultimately has no control over.

See, the media portraying AMC to be a pump and dump fails to touch topic on the high short interest rate. They fail to present the manipulation suppressing the stock’s price.

It’s for this reason why I’m breaking this down today. When people looking for opportunity ‘Google’ whether AMC is a pump and dump, I don’t want The Fool to mislead people or scare them from their money.

How about let’s put everything on the table and let the public decide based on the information provided. Maybe they don’t want to put an effort or join a cause fighting for a fair market. Perhaps it’s too much for them.

But at least fair information and facts would have been provided. Community leaders are not trying to convince people to buy the stock. Anyone who bought AMC months back when we published the data is up more than 1000% in gains.

That is a choice retail investors made based on the information that was provided. That same information is why we continue to hold the stock. What’s limiting the data at hand is the increased manipulation in the market.

The AMC Community Demands A Fair Market

The reality is very few retail investors are facing losses in AMC and seasoned investors in the community continue to hold the stock.

Why are we holding the stock? Because it’s being suppressed by hedge funds and market makers who get to mold the rules to their benefit.

We’re seeking regulations from the SEC that will prevent short sellers from creating counterfeit shares and stop dark pool trading once and for all.

Once these unethical strategies are eliminated, retail investors will begin to experience the bigger fruit of their trade. AMC should runup as transactions are no longer masked through dark pools.

This is a serious matter that financial platforms nor hedge funds have addressed. However, the community has made enough noise to get CNBC’s Melissa Lee and FOX Business’s Charles Payne to publicly touch base on this very real matter.

Scandals of Ken Griffin lying under oath have awoken Citadel on Twitter after 9 months of complete silence. Boston and Dallas Fed Presidents, Kaplan and Rosengren have been fired after buying securities while creating monetary policies. AMC now stands for more than just money.

The AMC community has been a beacon for change in the markets. Financial institutions are going to realize very soon just how much they have underestimated each and every one of us.

So, Is AMC A Pump And Dump?

AMC is the reason why a new era will be replacing its current leaders. AMC is not a pump and dump, it’s a beacon for change and a fair market.

I’m going to be the first to say you don’t have to own any AMC stock to fight against corruption within our community.

Owning AMC stock is a bonus. We have the knowledge and data to stick to our convictions and make a life-changing play for ourselves and our families, if we want. We don’t need anyone’s validation anymore.

Buying AMC stock is a ticket to the moon, there’s no doubt about that. However, fighting for a fair market will be the community’s legacy.

A chance at a fair market will increase our probability of squeezing shorts from their positions. The weight of the wait would have been worth it.

Whether you decide to buy, hold, or sell your stock, don’t stop fighting for the community. But remember, diamonds are created under pressure. Your voice is a weapon, use it.
