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

This manipulation by hedge funds (e.g., Citadel) is criminal. Wouldn’t it be nice if the SEC and other responsible regulatory folks took decisive action to weed out & eliminate this illegal naked shorting practice? What is GG waiting for?
We must press on regulators to take appropriate action
