TD Ameritrade Reports 40.25% AMC Short Interest

TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest Glitch
Market News: TD Ameritrade AMC glitch.

Screenshots from TD Ameritrade have come up on Twitter of AMC’s short interest at 40.25%.

Ortex is reporting AMC to have a short interest of 16.99% (2021 Archive).

So where is TD Ameritrade pulling up this information from?

They actually have a response to that.


Welcome to Franknez.com – the ape community has mentioned from time to time that a lot of the data provided by financial institutions is skewed. Here’s an example that happening right now.

“Our news and research is provided by Third Party Vendors”

So, why is this short interest data important?

Retail investors rely on the short interest data to determine how much of a company’s float is being shorted.

The short interest that Ortex is reporting is significantly less than that of TD Ameritrade’s.

TD Ameritrade’s short interest data is more than double that of Ortex.

Short interest data also enables us to see how much ‘squeeze potential‘ there is in a heavily shorted stock.

At least to a certain degree.

So if we have sources reporting masked or hidden short interest data, it’s deceit in many accounts.

Or is this simply a glitch from TD Ameritrade?

The ape community is questioning why ticker symbol AMC is the only stock that has had a significant number of glitches throughout the year.

Or are the real numbers being masked to divert the public from jumping in on this short squeeze play.

Afterall, hedge funds have begun closing, with many losing billions this year.

Where is this data coming from?

The data comes from MorningStar but both TD Ameritrade and ETrade experienced this anomaly in their system.

According to TD Ameritrade, this was a glitch in their system.

However, the data would have not been changed unless the retail community pointed it out.

Was this a mistake on their end that retail was not supposed to see?

Or was this legit one of several glitches that has been occurring specifically for AMC Entertainment stock?

I’d love to know your thoughts in the comment section below.

The broker is stating their technology team is working to correct the information but have no ETA as to when the correct data will be restored.

Why so many glitches with AMC stock?

AMC Entertainment has been experiencing several glitches throughout 2021.

They have varied from skewed data such as the short interest, to chart patterns, and even share price.

The ape community has concluded over the months that AMC’s short interest data is significantly higher than what is being displayed.

Lou from the YouTube channel has even concluded that AMC’s share price is being masked and could be in the hundreds to even thousands of dollars per share.

Now, while these are rather extreme claims, it’s not difficult to understand why such claims have been made.

AMC is one of the most overleveraged stocks from hedge funds shorting it.

Millions upon millions of shares have been borrowed to short it all year.

The feds have now begun investigating short selling practices and are tackling hedge funds who pose systemic risk.

As more hedge funds close, and others continue to bleed their customers, retail investors suspect they will do everything in their power to deceive retail from squeezing them from their short positions.

An interesting narrative, but a very likely one just as much.

AMC Skyrockets More Than 7 Times Pandemic Levels

AMC stock news today
Market News: AMC dominates in Q3 as share price and attendance rises

AMC Entertainment stock closed today’s trading day up more than 7 times during pandemic levels.

When the pandemic closed movie theatres, AMC was trading at $3.19.

AMC stock closed at $23.67 on Wednesday.

Mainstream media has been menacing about pointing out how far out the movie theatre chain is from its all-time high.

And CEO Adam Aron is not happy about the misleading headlines.

The CEO took it to Twitter to express his concerns.

Here’s what’s happening.

Mainstream media attacks

It comes as no surprise to see mainstream media publish headlines AMC is falling when in fact it is surging.

Or to read how far out AMC is from last year’s all-time high rather than the progress the company has made this year.

The conflict of interest surrounding institutional short sellers and the media is something that should be addressed more frequently.

Short and distort campaigns have focused on bringing AMC down in efforts to drive shares down.

Elon Musk has personally spoken out against short and distort campaigns saying it “takes advantage of retail investors”.

Here’s what AMC CEO Adam Aron had to say:

He says, “AMC is 11 times when we were written off for dead, 1/5/2021 $1.98 #TellTheWholeStory“.

Corporate media in the end is a corporation, an establishment that will cater to those who compensate them.

Though their approach may be unethical without a doubt, it’s up to retail investors to speak out and share pieces on the truth to educate their neighbors.

The Motley Fool, Yahoo Finance, fall in line

Yahoo Finance

The Motley Fool and Yahoo Finance have been one of AMC’s biggest media adversities.

For over a year now, both media sites have aimed to destroy AMC Entertainment’s reputation by painting a doomsday scenario around the company stock, CEO, and shareholders.

Other companies using short and distort campaigns to attack the movie theatre company include:

  • Benzinga
  • Seeking Alpha
  • InvestorPlace
  • MarketWatch
  • The Verge
  • CNBC
  • Barron’s

Independent blogs such as Franknez.com have been publishing the latter, the progression of the company.

Fox Business’s Charles Payne has also provided a positive attitude towards the development and recovery of the movie theatre chain.

But it’s the ‘ape’ community made up of retail investors who have been telling the ‘whole story’.

The true story.

So, what can investors do to combat mainstream media?

Share content from independent writers, share that activist’s tweet, and get the community’s voice heard.

That is what corporate media truly fears.

Retail Investors Petition to Fire SEC Chairman Gary Gensler

Petition to fire Gary Gensler
Market News: Petition to fire Gary Gensler surfaces in retail community.

Retail investors have gotten together and started a petition to fire SEC Chairman Gary Gensler for obstruction of justice.

The SEC Chairman is believed to be complicit to the market manipulation occurring in the day-to-day stock market.

Gary Gensler admitted in a Bloomberg exclusive that 90%-95% of retail orders do not go through the lit exchange, such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), but rather through foreign exchanges, or dark pools.

Retail’s concerns have fallen on deaf ears as market maker and hedge fund Citadel remains in operation.

Retail demands Citadel investigation

retail demands citadel investigation
Citadel’s Ken Griffin.

The market maker and hedge fund, who also has its own dark pool, is responsible for processing almost 50% of retail trades.

How do they receive this many orders?

Through a process called PFOF, or payment for order flow, where the institution pays brokers such as Robinhood a fee for retail orders.

Citadel then profits from retail as they exchange these orders through foreign exchanges where they can get a better deal, pocketing the small spread.

But that’s not all.

Citadel is short on AMC Entertainment stock, one of the most popular stocks amongst the retail community aiming to squeeze short sellers from their positions.

Investors have looked at Gary Gensler for solutions to the stock’s suppression, but the SEC has only made fun of the retail community; and now they want him out.

Change.org | Petition to fire Gary Gensler.

Retail investors are now demanding for change.

But retail aren’t the only ones to stand up to the SEC.

Tesla’s Elon Musk has been very public about the SEC’s incompetence and has even spoken out against short sellers and malpractices used to short his company in what he calls short and distort tactics.

These same tactics have been used to drive retail’s favorite stocks down despite big demand for the stock.

Retail investors are rising to market injustices and are demanding the SEC Chairman step down and Citadel receives a proper investigation.

You can sign the petition to fire Gary Gensler on Change.org here.

The petition has already received more than 14,000 signatures.
