Ken Griffin Thanks Redditors for ‘Meme Stocks’

Ken Griffin Thanks Redditors for 'Meme Stocks'

“Redditors, thank you so much for helping create the best pipeline we’ve ever had”, said Ken Griffin on Business Insider.

Ken Griffin, on how the GameStop frenzy helped raise Citadel’s profile with potential hires.

Business Insider says the SEC found no truth to any of the conspiracy theories but how can the SEC really go against one of the most powerful hedge funds in the world?

Transcripts showed Citadel and Robinhood did in fact have “blunt negotiations” the night prior to the halts.

A Miami district court judge admitted the Citadel and Robinhood transcripts were suspicious.

However, the federal court has dismissed the case due to a ‘lack of evidence’.

Research shows Judge Cecilia Altonaga had a close connection to the defendant’s law firm, insinuating a conflict of interest in the case.

The GameStop affair, in an odd twist, actually helped boost Citadel’s clout with potential recruits, Griffin said.

“For a lot of people this was a wake-up call that this firm Citadel is actually one of the most important players in the world’s financial markets,” he told Business Insider.

“Redditors, thank you so much for helping create the best pipeline we’ve ever had.”

“We’ve lost sight of the opportunities people can enjoy in America in recent years,” Griffin said.

To help counteract that, Griffin said he plans to give away the vast majority of his fortune during his lifetime.

“I’m going to give my money away in a way that I think has a real impact for our country,” he said. “I hope that the gifts I make will have an impact on America and the world for many years to come.”

Retail Investors Weigh In

Ken Griffin has made his money off the backs of retail investors who are simply looking to start building wealth through their favorite company stocks.

Retail investors say Ken Griffin’s Citadel takes advantage of its payment for order flow (PFOF) and use of off-exchange trading.

Backdoors in the financial system allow institutions to essentially control the game even when the ball is in retail’s court.

Chairman Gensler has even admitted to dark pools having a strong suppression on a securities share price which goes to show how much power these institutions really have in the game.

    Short hedge funds won, Adam Aaron and AMC won. We the retail investors lost.

    I dont know why you posted this one as a question, Frank. It seems 100% clear Ken Griffin will do or say anything at any time, with no regard or thought as to how people may react or feel. It makes me sad to be an American when I see such behavior from my countrymen. This isnt what America is supposed to stand for. I’ve always loved my country, but we cannot condone his actions or those of any person/entity that purposely break and bend rules to their favor, while hurting the economy and millions if not billions of people worldwide. And Ken- even if I could believe you’re going to give your money away, which I absolutely do not, that doesnt make up for years of systematic abuse of the very country and people you claim to support. In short, your mother would be ashamed of you. Tsk, tsk!

    It is the same kind of arrogance that people who are losing on their own game have, lost and nothing left but trying to demean others. Nothing will deter retail investors from cornering short sellers and proving that their point is more than just a “conspiracy theory”
