Advantages retail investors holding AMC stock have over hedge funds

Community, today I want to remind you why you’re winning. We’ve been holding AMC stock for many months now. Us seasoned apes have seen some gains at this point. New retail investors buying the stock, don’t get overwhelmed if you’re not there yet because your time is closer than you think.

If you’re feeling uncertain at some point just come back to this article. Here are 5 advantages us retail investors holding AMC stock have over hedge funds.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – I just want to say, I’m about to reach 2 million of you and I want to thank you for being a loyal reader. I’d love to know how long you’ve been reading the blog for. Comment below at the end of the article.

Lets get started!

#1. Holding AMC Stock Costs Us Nothing

You hear it over and over and over again community. Hodling doesn’t cost us a thing. Hedge funds on the other hand are paying a fee to continuously short AMC stock.

Hedge funds have lost billions from apes simply not cashing in profits yet. They can’t keep playing this game forever, our community is a big threat to their customers and business as a whole.

Whether you have gains or not on paper, know that you holding a position in AMC is costing the bad guys money. Remember, patience is a virtue. We can hold at ease while they hold in stress.

#2. Apes Own More Than 80% of AMC’s Float

The combined percentage of whales and apes that own AMC’s float is 80% according to Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment.

Ladies and gentlemen, we literally own the company. Just to put things into perspective, Tesla has about 33% retail investors while Apple has approximately 40%.

Whales, or institutions, will be selling on the way up. We’ve seen this happen before. I bring this up because it means that at some point we will own more of the company. This is significant because it allows us to be in control of when we want to sell stock and what price we’d like to sell the stock at.

What you hold is more valuable than you know. By the time hedge funds and short sellers have to cover their position, it’s going to be very expensive for them. We hold the supply, their request for the stock back is the demand. When demand increases the price also increases.

#3. We’re Investing Our Money, Not Other People’s Money

This is big psychologically speaking. As retail investors we have more sentimental value attached to the dollar that’s being invested. We will hold because we simply have no other option.

Our families depend on it and there’s absolutely no way we will ever cut our losses or cash in anything other than life changing profits. We’ve locked ourselves in on this game and have put away the key until the time is right.

Hedge funds on the other hand are burning their clients money. It’s not theirs so they don’t care. They’ve borrowed money from every crevice that will lend it to them but continue to severely take losses. If hedge funds were playing with their money, they would have closed their positions months ago.

And although leveraging other peoples money has played in their favor short term, the gash it’s going to leave long term is monumental.

#4. The AMC community is getting loud

Our community is being heard now by the media. We now have Melissa Lee from CNBC and Charles Payne from FOX Business questioning the SEC regarding the illicit activity of naked shorting.

When a community is loud enough change begins to slowly happen. We are more powerful than you think. Unification of the people is one thing governments fear the most. At some point the people who denied the manipulation in the market, like Charles Payne did many years back, will be joining us.

This revolution will be one of those things where it simply can’t be swept under the rug anymore. These are different times.

There’s been headlines about the SEC allegedly fining hedge funds for naked shorting. Not much information has been released regarding this. However, if the SEC doesn’t do their job then the AMC community will also be exposing them.

Leadership In The Community

Apes in the community are also using platforms as a means to help fight FUD and the manipulation. We fight the lies with the truth and educate the AMC community every way we can. Unlike hedge funds, who have superiors, we have multiple apes in our community doing the right thing.

Everyone is a leader.

#5. We’ve Saved The Entire Movie Industry

Have you ever stepped back and thought about this? If you hold AMC stock you literally helped save the entire movie industry along with the oldest movie theater business in history.

Our community did that, you did that. That is how powerful we are united. The fact of the matter is that there’s a future, a blimp in time where shorts get squeezed out of their positions. If the community can save an entire movie industry from going bankrupt, then the community can certainly squeeze the culprits who’s goal was to drive AMC Entertainment into extinction, out of their positions.

These short sellers have a backwards way of thinking. We should be supporting our businesses worldwide, not betting on them to shut down. Their way is not the way and for that reason they will continue to suffer extreme losses.

They said this is what we’re doing and we said no, this is what’s going to happen. It’s time for change. The biggest transfer of wealth is about to take place and it’s going to be marked in history.

And lastly . . .

Remember your why. Write down your goals and affirmations. Practice visualization because your mind and thoughts are that powerful. You become what you think about the most.

Red days, green days it’s all part of the process. Red days are needed just as much as the green days are. Any red days we experience become buying opportunities and help us stair step the way up.

Short sellers will continue to borrow shares to drive the price down. This is only going to make this squeeze that much BIGGER. The only reason hedge funds continue to short the stock is because they’ve run out of options. They’re desperate and it’s all they can do. Their defeat is already written.

Read: 6 things retail investors holding AMC stock should know


AMC Continues To Be The Most Shorted Stock In The Market

AMC continues to be the most shorted stock in the market
AMC stock continues to be heavily shorted

AMC Entertainment stock has caused havoc for short sellers shorting the stock. Hedge funds have proven to lose billions of dollars from the ongoing ‘meme’ stock frenzy.

Momentum stocks, as I like to call them, are more than just plays for money. Retail investors have conjured up a real movement for change.

And although mainstream financial news platforms say it’s over, it’s far from it. Hedge funds betting against AMC just borrowed more than 4 million shares to short the stock.

They just dug themselves a deeper hole.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the best blog for new and seasoned retail investors. Today we’re discussing AMC Entertainment stock.

Lets get started!

Is AMC Stock Shorted?

Short sellers just borrowed more than 4 million shares to short the stock. Although AMC has had major buying pressure all year, shorts continue to attack retail and the company.

The community wants to see chairman of the SEC, Gary Gensler, take action towards banning activities such as naked shorting, dark pool trading, and PFOF.

The SEC was created in 1929 after the infamous Stock Market Crash of 1929 to protect retail investors against the manipulation from hedge funds and short sellers. However, it was established in 1934 with the passage of the Securities Exchange Act, a law formerly governing the trade of securities.

Overleveraged positions in the markets have been the cause for economic meltdowns resulting in significant losses for the American people. Our government has always had the power to fix the biggest problems retail investors currently face.

Why no real regulation has truly protected retail investors is the big question. Talks of ongoing investigations have risen but actions will have to speak louder than words.

AMC’s stock price continues to be suppressed through overleveraged means only hedge funds and short sellers have access to. The ape community has sparked a movement towards fighting for a fair market and aren’t going anywhere until real change has occurred.

How Can We Appoint New Leaders In The SEC?

Members of the SEC are appointed by the President of The United States himself.

The SEC is headed by a five-member board of commissioners. Members are appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the United States Senate.

The president does not have the authority to remove members once they are confirmed. No more than three commissioners may belong to the same political party. The president appoints one board member to serve as chair.

Change will only happen if we the people voice our concerns publicly. We have the right and the power to overthrow any form of incompetent government.

We must let these powers know that we see them and understand that they have the power to make things right. There are more than 4 million of us in this community. Our voice is our strength.

Will AMC Continue To Run Up?

I’ve been in this community since early February and the sentiment has not changed. 80% of AMC’s float is now owned by retail investors and the movement keeps growing. The stock market is based on supply and demand, and so retail investors are in command.

Although AMC’s share price is being suppressed by heavy shorting in the market, AMC Entertainment stock will continue to run up as long as retail investors continue to buy the stock.

Which isn’t going to be a problem by the way. AMC is more than just a stock, it’s a movement.

Hedge Funds Will Continue To Face Mounting Losses

There are no signs of retail letting off the gas pedal. Investors in the ape community continue to buy the dips and hold their stock no matter the pressure.

Short sellers have already lost billions this year and continue to mount losses in liquidity and debt.

Betting on this stock, the company, and its massive community has been a terrible financial decision.

What Financial Institutions Are Shorting AMC Stock?

AMC Entertainment is currently being shorted by numerous hedge funds and financial institutions. Here’s a list:

  1. Simplex Trading LLC
  2. Susquehanna International Group LLP
  3. Citadel Advisors LLC
  4. 683 Capital Management LLC
  5. Anchorage Capital Group LLC
  6. Group One Trading LP
  7. Wolverine Trading LLC
  8. Bank of America Corp DE
  9. Millennium Management LLC
  10. Piction Mahoney Asset Management

AMC Has Changed Millions of Lives

AMC Entertainment has changed the lives of movie goers through the theatrical experience we’ve all missed since the lockdowns. The company has unintentionally sparked a movement greater than ourselves, resulting in the resurrection of the movie theater industry during the process.

And it’s changed the lives of millions of retail investors, netting significant profits to majority of its shareholders.

Whether you’re holding for a short squeeze or to be part of a community with a movement, you cannot deny AMC has attracted change. So, lets continue to be that change the world and our community needs.

AMC Stock: Handling Buying At A High Price + Losses

AMC Stock Getting In At A High Price
Holding AMC losses? Here’s why you shouldn’t worry

Dear fellow ape, did you buy AMC stock at a high price? By high price I mean to the point where you’re currently negative on paper.

If so, I want to help you navigate this temporary season. See, majority of us have been there before. If you’ve read some of my other blog posts you’ll know at some point I was negative $9K+!

I remember seeing my position in AMC plummet and thinking, wow.. How soon will things get better? Here’s what you need to know.

Franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s message is to our new apes that have joined the movement. I’m excited you’re here today.

Lets get started!

Things did not get better so soon, and I know you can certainly relate. So why did I keep holding? Why didn’t I just say, “screw this, I’m cutting my losses”?

The answer is simple. The short interest data really built a strong conviction towards the stock within me. I remember I didn’t even tell my fiancΓ© how much money I was under at first because I knew it was temporary, and it was only on paper.

I understood that if I held, my losses would shrink and I would eventually come up breaking even. Once I broke even I knew that I would then profit soon after.

Here’s Why It’s Important To Hold

Had I sold and cut my losses, I would have never experienced my current gains in AMC stock. And if you’re curious to know, yes I’m still holding but more on that in a bit.

As I was holding the stock, my losses eventually got smaller and smaller as AMC’s price action moved upwards. This is when the stock had jumped up to $20 per share back in January.

I bought in at $14 and the stock dropped to $5 per share. I didn’t begin profiting until at least 3 months later. The stock consolidated a lot around the $9 range. And once it broke $14, AMC stock really began to climb.

It took three months for my investment to bear fruit before ultimately finding a higher low of what we now know is the $33 range. So I’m still up significantly, 5-figures. But I still hold.

What I did during the time my investment was negative is I took advantage of the share price instead. I loaded up on shares like crazy. So, if you’re looking to increase your number of shares now is the time to do it.

The Data Hasn’t Changed

AMC short squeeze data
AMC losses are only on paper

Why do I continue to hold? I could take my profits, forget this battle and invest in other long term plays. The reason is because the data has not changed.

This is how I know you will come profitable soon, except you probably won’t have to go through two dips like us seasoned apes did. This could perhaps be the last big dip before MOASS.

I mean who knows, maybe we do find a higher low down the road. But even then, you’ll find yourself in a similar position to us who have been holding since early this year. You’ll be profitable, but you’ll understand there’s a lot of potential.

AMC Short Interest %

Now, back to the data. Short interest by definition is considered to be extremely high at 20%. AMC’s short interest is currently at 18%. A high short interest is considered to be around 10%. This data tells you that AMC is a rare case. Apple’s short interest is 1%, just for comparison.

Utilization is in the high 90% and the shares on loan are above 100 million according to Ortex data.

But wait, there’s more. More than 60% of trading has occurred inside dark pools. This means that a lot of the buying pressure is not even reflected in AMC’s current share price! Dark pool usage has been increasing which means short sellers are running out of options. And it’s only a matter of time before they’re suspended from using these ATS’s (alternative trading systems).

How? Whether you believe the SEC will do something or not, change takes time. We didn’t have the attention of mainstream media nor of the SEC earlier this year, but we do now.

The point here is they now know, that we know. The spotlight is on them. Will they expose themselves as slaves of corruption? Or will they demonstrate to the world that they serve the people?

Will AMC Stock Go Back Up?

will amc stock go back up

Absolutely. AMC has found a new bottom in the $33 range. The last bottom was between $5-$9 and it consolidated at that price range for a few months before making a massive break.

AMC recently tested $37 again and touched $38. Once we break these levels and move to $40, the stock will see $45+ again. We know this through the Fibonacci retracement that presents technical analysts with the levels of resistance the stock went through.

This technical setup allows us to trace patterns whether AMC is trending downwards or upwards.

Well now we’ve tested $50+. Ladies and gentlemen, AMC wants to go up despite the shorting. AMC’s only intention is to go up.

AMC Movement Facts

  1. Apes own more than 80% of the float
  2. Retail investors continue to buy the dips
  3. Large institutions keep bulking up on the stock
  4. Shorts have not covered their positions
  5. Hedge funds are under intense scrutiny
  6. Short sellers continue to face difficult losses
  7. We’ve grabbed the attention of mainstream media
  8. Naked shorting and dark pools have been exposed
  9. The community is growing every day
  10. We’ve saved an entire movie industry

Give yourselves a round of applause. These facts are all going in the history books. No one can take away the ruckus the community has made.

Change is inevitable, the apes are inevitable, the biggest transfer of wealth in all human history is inevitable. This was meant to be and you were meant to be a part of it.

If you’re currently holding losses in AMC, welcome to possibly one of the biggest moments of your life. More than 4 million apes stand beside you.

The data says short sellers are overleveraged, whales continue to buy the stock, brokers are raising margin requirements, the SEC is getting involved. It is happening.

Apes, keep holding; we’re being processed.

What’s Up With Margin Calls?

AMC Margin Call

Why do you think historical amounts of cash are currently being pumped into our financial system? My guess is feds are getting ready to bail short sellers. They’re preparing for something massive.

We know that short sellers have been trading billions of synthetics and we also know that they have to cover those positions too. Hedge funds have been liquidating several positions in the markets and I can only assume they will need help from the government too.

These margin calls will be the biggest margin calls in history.

Final verdict

franknez.com

If you’re holding losses at the moment, do not worry. If you’re like me and you trust the data, you know that these losses are only temporary.

Amazing things are on their way to you, I know you can feel it too.

What Will An AMC Short Squeeze Look Like?

what will an AMC short squeeze look like?
AMC Short Squeeze

AMC Entertainment stock is up more than 2000% year-to-date, but it hasn’t squeezed despite what mainstream media is telling you. Momentum and an upwards recovery is why AMC stock is surging again.

So, what will a short squeeze look like?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to discuss what an AMC short squeeze will look like for those of you who are still new in this trade.

Lets get started!

We finally broke AMC’s level of support in the $30 range and start a new chapter towards breaking $50. The stock just recently tested $48 before getting pushed back down by short sellers shorting the stock.

And although shorts are merely suppressing AMC stock from running its course, they are only slowing down the inevitable.

This minor move up to the $40 range combined with propaganda of a short squeeze is meant to divert new retail investors from getting in on this trade. Hedge funds are desperate as they consequently suffer billions of dollars in losses from the ape community alone.

But don’t let them scare you away from your money. AMC has not squeezed as short sellers have not covered their short positions.

There Are More Than 105 Million Shares On Loan

Ladies and gentlemen, if shorts covered their positions and AMC just went through a short squeeze, the number of shares on loan would have dropped significantly.

But they haven’t changed. Shares on loan are the number of shares that have yet to be returned to the lender by short sellers. If this number is not going down, it means short sellers have not covered their positions yet.

And as we know, you cannot have a short squeeze if short sellers do not cover their positions.

We would have also seen AMC’s short interest ultimately get obliterated to 1%-2%. It’s currently deemed ‘extremely high’ at 18%. Short interest is the percentage of short shares in a stock’s outstanding float.

AMC Entertainment keeps getting shorted no matter what the mainstream financial media platforms relay to the public. If you want real news and data subscribe to the blog. No propaganda here.

A Lid Full of Pressure Is About To Pop Open

Short sellers are about to go down in history for having the biggest losses to ever be recording in finance archives.

Hedge funds continue to gamble a trade they have been losing for 8 months now. That’s 8 months of suppressing a stock’s share price through the unethical practices of naked shorting and dark pool trading.

When the lid pops open here’s what you can expect.

Intraday Gains Will Be Astronomical

The short squeeze ‘claims’ from the mainstream media were that of only 20% gains. As this lid pops open, we can expect gains to run between 100%+ during intraday trading.

This is how you will know the short squeeze has commenced. We would need to keep an eye out on the short interest and shares on loan. This is basically our ‘fuel’.

We will be able to predict how much room for growth is available as these numbers go down. For example, if AMC reaches $1,000 per share but the short interest and shares on loan are still relatively high, then we know that AMC has not peaked yet.

The ape community would need to continue to hold to see numbers beyond that amount.

Differentiating Gamma Squeeze VS Short Squeeze

The 20% gains we experienced could be seen as a gamma squeeze. While this could have been a combination of momentum caused by FOMO, it could have also been micro short sellers closing their positions.

However, these micro positions didn’t even affect the short interest or shares on loan. This goes to show just how massive AMC’s share price will surge once big short sellers begin to close their positions.

It’s when these big players start covering that we’ll begin to experience the beginning of a short squeeze.

How Long Will A Short Squeeze Last?

As we begin to see massive intraday gains, the short interest data should let us know how much more ‘squeeze’ we have left. This means that we won’t know just how many days or weeks this squeeze may last for until we have an understanding of how many shorts have indeed closed their positions.

And although we won’t know exactly 100%, the short interest data can be a great guide to let us know how much juice is available on this trade.

This information will be relayed to the community as this trade continues to unfold. For now, we HODL until it’s payday.

We fortunately have a beautiful thing going. Short sellers on the other hand have had a bad day every day for the past 8 months. Now that SUCKS.

That Other World Is Waiting For You

Franknez.com

That vision you keep seeing for you and your family is patiently waiting on you just as much as you’re waiting for it to come to fruition.

We are in a very unique position here. The data is out there and you have all the information you need to make this thing a reality for you.

Trey said in a recent video that only you are in charge of your financial situation. This play is meant for everyone to make money. And he’s absolutely right. We cannot tie the community down.

But one thing is certain on my part and that’s that I am not selling until shorts have covered their positions. That’s my promise to you.

AMC Is Trending In The Right Direction

AMC is trending in the right direction
#AMCTOTHEMOON

AMC Entertainment stock is up more than 2000% year-to-date and no short seller can take that away. Not Gasparino, not Richfield.

AMC stock is adjusting itself for higher highs and higher lows again. Should you be excited? I sure am.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on personal finance, entrepreneurship, and trending financial topics.

Lets get started!

AMC has become our world. It has become such an important part of all our lives. We’ve stuck together through every high and low, no matter what challenges we have faced as a community.

There’s a thick skin in the game now, be proud of it. And if you are a new ape, you now know we really meant it when we said we are not leaving.

Despite the number of opposing forces, AMC is trending in the right direction.

Breaking $48 Level of Resistance

Why is this so important? What happens then?

There’s a lot of facts, data, and logic as to why I’m so optimistic about AMC. And I think a lot of you will agree on what I have to present today.

But before I do, I want to give a massive thanks to the 100+ FrankNez supporters on Patreon. Running a blog at this scale is quite costly and your support means more than you will ever know. I will leave that link at the bottom of the article.

Now, AMC tested $48 four times now and it moved past the $50 mark. We’re now seeing AMC retest this area a fifth time.

The last time we broke $50 per share the stock trailblazed up to $72 per share. We are currently in unknown territory which means retail investors set the play.

AMC Is A High Demand Stock

AMC is a high demand stock no matter which way you look at it. The stock is in high demand from both retail investors and short sellers. Retail buys the stock and shorts equally demand to borrow it.

This momentum play is what’s keeping AMC trending in the right direction. The stock is so popular now that almost anyone who finds out what we’re fighting for will simply join just to fight.

This is great news for you and I because it means the share price will continue to surge and set higher resistance levels as the community keeps expanding.

And as long as shorts don’t cover, apes will continue to raise the bar, setting higher highs and higher lows.

This Trend Is About To Get Bigger

When AMC reached $72 per share all it did was make a statement. It introduced the ape community to the world and gave everyone who heard of us a fighting chance.

It was generous enough to let more people on board when it hit $30 per share. But I don’t think the next time it reaches a low it will be within this range. If it trades like Tesla did, AMC’s next floor could potentially be in the $70-$100 per share (next time around) as it continues to surge.

Will people keep buying? Without a doubt. Think about the institutions who are buying stock worth more than this amount right now. Whales will always buy if they see a rising trend here.

AMC has this rising trend right now. It was up more than 3000% back in June and fell back to 1500%. Well, it’s up more than 2000% now after reaching a higher floor.

Ladies and gentlemen, keep holding this stock. Even if you got in at $70 per share, there’s absolutely no way you cannot make money during this historic event! With that being said, there’s no doubt in my mind every ape in the community will be profitable this month of September.

But don’t be a Wanda and sell to break even. Selling at $70 will only bring the price back down. The stock needs to be comfortable testing higher levels of support.

And as Roensch Capital has said, the higher we can set AMC up fundamentally before the short squeeze, the better.

My advice to you as a friend (not financial advice), is that as you begin to be profitable (on paper), keep letting it ride up. You will thank me later.

AMC Stock Prediction (September)

After seeing AMC trade for 9 months now, I feel confident saying it’s going to be a really happy month for apes. I saw us start small with no voice to now owning more than 80% of the float, saving the movie theater industry, and sparking a movement against corruption.

We are now a community to be reckoned with.

Last month I mentioned August was going to be the last chance apes had to buy AMC stock at $30 per share because I noticed the stock had created a new floor. And I was right!

I was able to stock up at this level share price before it breaking resistance and moving past $40 levels.

If you plan on adding to your position, buy the stock now. AMC stock is about to move past $50 per share this month and if you missed adding at $30 per share, you’ll wish you had added at $40 too.

I’m By Your Side No Matter What

Franknez.com

We’ve been in touch on Facebook, Discord, Twitter, Instagram, via email, you name it! You know who you are. Maybe I’ve said it to only a few and maybe not enough but I’m by your side no matter what.

I wish I could mention all you great apes sharing the content. You are the ones changing other people’s lives. If it weren’t for you, some apes wouldn’t even have this amazing once in a lifetime opportunity that we all have!

So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Massive Disruption: Prepare For The MOASS
MOASS Incoming

MOASS incoming. The feds are printing trillions of dollars, hedge funds have lost billions of dollars due to retail. People also seem to be worried about a possible recession.

And, the feds are now requiring major banks to hold roughly $1 trillion in high quality capital – enough to survive a severe recession and still be able to lend to households and businesses.

They crazy thing is only a few out of the 34 major banks hold more than $1 trillion in assets. How will this affect investors, and the common people?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s topic is rather grand. How prepared are you for a MOASS?

Lets get started!

There’s a lot going on here. I’m going to break major key points and give my overall thoughts and opinions on how everything ties together.

With so much money being lent out this means it’s all eventually going to have to be paid back sooner or later. Lets dive into the distribution of all this leverage and debt first with repos and how they work.

The Feds & Repos

The feds have been printing out a large sum of money to lend to banks, who also lend to financial institutions such as hedge funds. Well the feds have also been collecting billions in reverse repos from money going back into the repo market.

A repo market is essentially where a transaction between treasure securities and cash meet. In other words, they are short-term collateralized loans.

Money is continuously being printed and transacted back and forth through both repos and reverse repos. This loop is the reason why our dollar is becoming worthless every day.

Who Uses Repos?

Financial institutions such as banks and hedge funds both have access to this unlimited supply of leverage, or cash from the feds.

Repos are used as leverage to trade securities with the intention of profiting from the leveraged cash, and eventually paying the loan back.

While repos are primarily supposed to be used as a short term ‘collateral loan’, institutions take advantage of the loan to further leverage other positions in the market.

Hedge funds can use repo to increase their leverage, which magnifies both their potential gains and their potential losses. We know hedge funds have lost billions of dollars from shorting AMC and GME stock this year alone.

What Can Be Done About Excessive Repos?

The feds might be looking at ways to facilitate the amount to be borrowed by establishing a particular ceiling. However, I personally don’t think this is enough.

Some fundamental questions are yet to be resolved, including the rate at which firms (besides banks and primary dealers) would be eligible to participate.

How Much Leverage Do Hedge Funds Have From Repos?

In the figure below, we can see that 29% of asset managers (hedge funds) have direct access to repos from the feds. However, dealer who hold 41% and banks who hold another 20% can easily lend money to hedge funds with interest.

how much leverage do hedge funds have from repos

The problem here is that hedge funds are overleveraged and have too much power as a single entity. Hedge funds have been the root to economic downturns such as the Great Recession of 2008 and the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

In fact, it’s because of the Stock Market Crash of 1929 that the SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) was born. It was meant to protect retail investors from fraud and illicit activity from hedge funds.

Unfortunately, the SEC has only proved to be a lobbied pawn from hedge funds; slapping them with fines that have no effect or real consequence to the injustice in the markets.

Hedge Funds Face Major Scrutiny

Market manipulation has been exposed by a growing community of retail investors originating from the sub Reddit known as r/wallstreetbets.

The community has since grown outside Reddit and established a variety of subcommunities on Discord, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook Groups, and other forums across the internet.

This community of retail investors known as ‘apes’ have sparked a movement worldwide to expose the corrupt tactics hedge funds use to short stock in the market and bankrupt companies.

Some of which include naked shorting and dark pool trading, which CNBC’s Melissa Lee publicly speaks out on.

The attention is now on hedge funds. Both Republicans and Democrats agree strict laws should be imposed on Citadel Securities after the Archegos incident earlier this year.

And it looks like their lifeline is about to be cut off.

Large Banks To Hold $1 Trillion In Capital

Effective October 1st, thirty-four of the largest banks will be required to hold roughly $1 trillion in high-quality capital.

The banks are:

  1. Ally Financial Inc.
  2. American Express Corporation
  3. Bank of America
  4. The Bank of New York
  5. Barclays
  6. BMO Financial Group
  7. BNP Paribas USA
  8. Capital One
  9. CitiGroup
  10. Citizens Financial Group
  11. Credit Suisse
  12. DB USA Corporations
  13. Discover
  14. DWS USA Corporations
  15. Fifth Third Bancorp
  16. Goldman Sachs
  17. HSBC

Out of these 34 companies, only JP Morgan, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and CitiGroup hold more than $1 trillion in assets.

In this list of the top 15 banks by assets, you can see just how far from $1 trillion a lot of these banks are. And this is just half of them from the feds list!

With so many banks far off from reaching $1 trillion in assets, they’ll have to find the collateral from other means.

In my personal opinion, liquidation in the markets.

What Causes A Stock Market Crash?

A stock market crash is caused by those who bought stock on margin, lost value in their investments, and owe money to the entities that granted them those loans, according to Britannica.

A stock market crash is usually the cause of ‘panic selling’ or heavy liquidation in the stock market. With so many institutions owing other institutions money back, we’re going to see massive liquidation occur during the biggest margin call in history.

Hedge funds and short sellers now have higher margin requirements, and it looks like the feds just applied their own requirements to the biggest banks in the world.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be the biggest opportunity of your life if you’re holding shorted stock, especially if they have a negative beta. Heavily shorted stocks with negative beta include both AMC and GME stock.

How Does A Stock Market Crash Affect The Average Person?

Unfortunately, the average person could lose their pension during a stock market crash and also find it difficult to obtain loans and mortgages. And if you own stock, your portfolio will suffer significant losses.

What Happens To AMC And GME If The Stock Market Crashes?

Stocks with negative beta tend to act the complete opposite during a stock market crash. AMC and GME holders will experience the MOASS as short sellers and institutions begin to cover their overleveraged positions.

But if you hold other common stock, keep in mind its value will drop. If you’re long, this could be seen as a great buying opportunity to add to your stock portfolio.

Other heavily shorted stocks with high short interest should also see a major increase in share price as hedge funds begin to pay their dues.

If the stock market crashes, it will be one of the biggest blessings for both AMC and GME shareholders as institutions will have to pay back every share they borrowed to short both these stocks.

Community, our time is coming. Banks have until October 1st to come up with the capital to fund their requirements. Expect liquidations left and right. Both the stock and crypto markets will be tanking.

And although AMC and GME are currently making upward moves, don’t be surprised if they fall back down one last time before shorts are inevitably squeezed from their short positions.

The MOASS we’ve all been waiting for is on the horizon. Get excited.

APES! Huge news on the horizon for AMC. 

If you’ve been in Frank’s AMC discord, you likely have seen me in there posting memes, or cracking wise, as I am the resident memelord and comedic relief in the server. 

I have been doing some of my own DD, as you should too! Never take anyone’s word for it. Look for yourself apes, all the information is out there if you look hard enough, and boy howdy let me tell you.

I’ve found a few tasty breadcrumbs that could potentially be a trail leading to some major catalysts for an AMC runup. Now bear in mind, folks. I am not a financial advisor, and this is not financial advice. I am just a smoothbrained crayon eating ape investor who is hyped as all get-out and have a very strong bullish sentiment about the next few days in AMC.

As Frank says, let’s get started! 

Adam Aron announces AMC theaters will be launching its first ever $25+ million NATIONAL ad campaign with starlet Nicole Kidman! Apes, this is huge! Adam is joining us to remind people that the theater experience is a time honored tradition in our country, that won’t be driven away by greedy hedge funds! 

Aron has also been talking with Melissa Lee about never-been-done plans for AMC! Apes, could this be the AMC/GME team up that’s been speculated since AA confirmed he has reached out to GME’s Ryan Cohen??

As of the time of this writing, Melissa Lee hasn’t aired with the story yet, but I am sure Frank will update this article accordingly. Fam, imagine our favorite stocks joining with our community and taking the fight BACK to the shorts who would seek to rob us of our favorite entertainment!?

Furthermore, when doing a little digging, I came across this juicy choice chicken nugget dipped in spicy affirmation sauce! Confirmation of a SEC Investigation on shorted stocks baby! Right in section 5 of GME’s 10Q earning report filed with the SEC itself written in plain English on GameStop’s investor website. 

Click the link to view.

And lastly, we have been bullish for days apes! We have a solid 45Β° uptrend, and a signal like this chums the waters for those big institutional investors! Something huge is coming our way apes, strap in and hang on, because I have a feeling we are about to take a ride to the next level! 

I will keep this short and sweet but if you enjoyed this article, stop by in Frank’s discord and say hello! I’d love to hear from my fellow apes! STONKY KONG, OUT!

NSCC-005 Raises Margin Requirements (9/3)

The DTCC just released a filing approving the NSCC’s proposal to increase the minimum required fund deposit (margin requirements) for short sellers.

Short sellers were required to keep a minimum balance of $10,000 in their margin accounts until now. As of September 3rd, 2021, these accounts are require to keep a whopping $250,000 by law.

NSCC-2021-010
NSCC 2021 010 Effective on September 3rd

“On the morning of the effective date, members with a fund deposit below $250,000 will incur a deficit, that will require funding by 10AM EST”.

How Does This Affect AMC?

This doesn’t just affect AMC, this affects the entire market. Plays that are currently heavily shorted such as GME, SPRT, and BBIG for example, will all be affected.

Short sellers are getting a 2500% margin increase as of September 3rd, 2021. Community, this is massive. If short sellers cannot meet this requirement then their positions will be liquidated.

Your favorite stocks are about to start moving up through a series of gamma squeezes. These gamma squeezes could cause hedge funds to close out their positions resulting in multiple short squeezes from multiple heavily shorted stocks.

These series of gamma squeezes must not be confused with a short squeeze for any particular stock. These margin requirements will first eliminate the smaller short sellers.

Holding will be crucial if we are to squeeze the bigger short sellers from their positions. Massive things are right around the corner!

AMC Theatres On Demand

Whip Media just announced that AMC would be using their services for AMC Theatres On Demand.

AMC Theatres On Demand would offer more than 5,000 movies from every major studio and indie film distributors, available for purchase or rent.

β€œWe’re thrilled to have partnered with AMC to power AMC Theatres on Demand for their millions of customers and provide an infrastructure that is efficient and scalable”, said Carol Hanley, president of Whip Media.

Keyword ‘Scalable’

Amazing news for AMC Entertainment indeed. This type of bullish news should push AMC stock further up since fundamentalists are still looking at AMC fundamentals.

The ape community understands that fundamentals are out the window when it comes to a short squeeze play. However, every step along the way counts.

Any business that goes online now goes from limitations to unlimited possibilities. While AMC Entertainment earns money the traditional way, through ticket sales and concession stands, they will now have the ability to earn revenue at scale through their online services.

AMC going online can easily raise its value to a 3-figure stock alone. It no longer depends on old traditional business methods. AMC has now configured a hybrid business model that will generate revenue even while movie theaters are closed after business hours.

This is certainly exciting news.

AMC Breaks Through $40

What an amazing day for the ape and retail community. AMC finally broke the $30 level of resistance and flew past $40.

AMC stock volume traded at a whopping 221 million! The average volume is approximately 169 million. Today’s momentum pushed through short sellers like a mob trampling shoppers at a black Friday sale.

AMC closed today (8.24) in the mid $40s. My August prediction came true, $30 share price levels are now a thing of the past.

August was the time to bulk up before momentum started taking over again. I predicted that these coming days would consist of AMC having an open runway of which we saw happen today (8.24).

Short Sellers Lose $800 Million

According to Ortex, short sellers amounted a whopping $800 million loss as AMC stock spiked up more than 20%. Short sellers betting against the stock can expect this pattern to occur in the coming days to weeks as AMC surges.

The opportunity to close positions in the $30 range are long gone. This is what happens when greed overpowers reasoning.

This last week in August could be pivotal. If shorts do not close their positions now, they will continue to suffer immense losses.

The BIGGEST Catalyst To A Short Squeeze

You know what the biggest catalyst to an AMC short squeeze is? It’s you. That’s right. You reading this.

The ape community is the biggest catalyst to this short squeeze trade. As long as retail investors continue to hold the stock, a short squeeze is inevitable.

Now, while we cannot control what whales (institutions) do, we can certainly control what we do. And that’s all that really matters during this play. Especially given the fact that retail investors own more than 80% of the free float.

Today we saw sells of up to $2.2M, and it barely affected the share price. This shows you just how strong we are as a community.


Citadel Pulls Money Out From Melvin Capital

This weekend (8.22) we learned that Citadel pulled out an incredible $500 million from the hedge fund Melvin Capital. Citadel had an initial investment of $2 billion dollars in Melvin Capital according to sources.

That’s 1/4 of their investment in the hedge fund. Citadel and partners plan to withdraw the money at the end of the third quarter. They made the investment in late January during the time Melvin Capital’s short positions were under attack by the heroes who saved both AMC Entertainment and GameStop.

The ape community saved two major companies in American history and are on a mission to squeeze shorts from their positions. Will Melvin Capital end up closing their doors? It’s certainly possible, especially if the hedge fund continues to lose money.

What Does This Mean?

We’re beginning to see that hedge funds short on AMC and GME stock are now resulting to desperate measures. They are scrapping money from their own pockets now.

See, retail investors liquidate their positions in other stocks to buy more AMC, to buy more GME stock. Ultimately to make more money right?

Hedge funds on the other hand are liquidating their stocks, and pulling their investments out from other institutions because they’re running out of money. They’re required to keep money above margin requirements.

Charles Schwab, a whale invested in both AMC and GME stock, has raised margin requirements for short sellers driving these stocks down. Failing to do so will result in intraday margin calls.

Melvin Capital Enters Deeper Waters

Unfortunately for Melvin Capital, Citadel just left another hole in their sinking ship by pulling out a quarter billion dollars from the hedge fund. Melvin is already down about 43% this year with about $11 billion in assets remaining.

The retail community continues to buy and hold both AMC and GME stock. AMC stock is setup for another technical break above $40 which will only cause short sellers to trend negative on paper.

Hedge funds cannot afford to lose their clients investments this long. It’s been 8 months of nonstop losses for short sellers all year. Clients will be pulling money out.

It seems retail investors will not only be forcing short sellers to close their positions, but will also take down the hedge funds who planned to bankrupt America’s favorite companies.

Read: Every AMC ape will be profitable in September


Every AMC Ape Will Be Profitable In September

Every AMC Ape Will Be Profitable In September

Apes were chatting about their gains on paper on my Discord this evening. Brandi mentioned she was finally seeing her account transition from red to green. It’s these type of discussions that really get me fired up.

Knowing my community is profitable motivates me to keep doing what I love doing. And that’s writing great content for you.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – if your AMC account is still red, I’m here to tell you profits are on their way to you right now.

Lets get started!

Now, anybody who got in on AMC stock prior to today’s share price level is profitable. You might have gotten in at $30, $15, or even at $5 when I first started blogging about this massive opportunity.

If you remember me blogging about AMC since early February leave me a comment below! I’m curious to know how many OG apes are still reading FrankNez.

However, newer apes are either on the brink of being profitable or have yet to break even. If that’s you, don’t worry. I was there myself.

History Is About To Repeat Itself

You might have heard somewhere that September is starting to feel a little like May. And that’s because we’re starting to see a trend here. Before AMC moved up in June, it had a long period of consolidation. Once it broke that consolidation, it began trending upwards before making the incredible climb past $70 per share.

Well apes, we just broke the $30 level of consolidation late August and are on track to break $50 per share once we retest $48 again. The reason why $48 is so important is because AMC has tested this level three times already.

This bullish indicator has shown us that once it tests a level its fourth time, it tends to break in a momentum run.

This is where whales, known as institutions, begin to buy again. New retail investors are going to jump in on the stock and shorts are going to lose a ton of money.

Short sellers were able to withstand the first round, but will they be able to handle phase two?

We’ve Come Back With A Bigger Ape Army

Did you notice the massive drops in the crypto markets? Seems like someone is liquidating profits for something big that’s about to take place.

Remember, Charles Schwab raised margin requirements for short sellers shorting both AMC and GameStop. On top of this, the NSCC has raised margin minimums from $10,000 to $250,000.

This means short sellers are under some serious heat. But guess what community? We’ve come back with a bigger ape army than the first time. The knowledge spread, and so did the conviction towards this short squeeze play.

Apes aren’t going anywhere until shorts have covered their positions. And you know what? We’ll still be here even then.

I know some of you cannot wait until you’re able to retire from this short squeeze play. But I’m not retiring. I will continue to be here for you even after we’ve mooned.

How Soon Will All AMC Apes Be Profitable?

A good number of you have actually just transitioned to being profitable. If that’s you please leave a comment below letting other apes know!

Although I do not know at what level you will be profitable, I do know that AMC is about to break $50 per share relatively soon due to chart patterns.

Breaking this level is going to kickstart another runup past $70 and beyond, fundamentally. And you know what this means right?

As long as apes continue to hodl, this price movement could ignite the rocket we’ve all been patiently strapped to. There’s absolutely no way smaller short sellers will be able to afford holding their positions a second wave.

Their accounts could even potentially get liquidated as the stock becomes harder to borrow. For hedge funds, this could mean the short borrow fee rate goes up, resulting in greater losses.

In summary, shorts drown in debt and losses while the ape community profits ‘x’ times over . September is proving to be a great month indeed.

Should You Buy AMC Stock Now?

should you buy amc stock now?

If you’re looking to add to your position, now could be a great time to do so before we break $50 and really begin to move forward.

We may consolidate in the high $40s a little longer before retesting $48 for the fourth time, we may not. Just as I was certain about breaking $30 last month, I’m certain we will be seeing $50+ very soon though.

I will continue to update the community as we progress so be sure to subscribe to the newsletter or follow me on social media. I will be leaving those links below.

Are you profitable right now?

And lastly, the community would love to know. Are you profitable? What do your gains look like on paper? Leave a comment below. At the time of this publication I’m up more than $36k and hodling STRONG.

Strong Anticipations of A Short Squeeze Next Week Arise

AMC Stock Prediction Short Squeeze
Short Squeezes Are Coming

Heavily shorted stocks are up and it seems short sellers are about to throw in the towel. If you haven’t already seen the news about Friday, September 3rd then this is going to excite you.

If you’re holding stock in more than one momentum play, your earnings might just end up multiplying all at the same time.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – I am excited for the upcoming days and weeks ahead of us. Be sure to read all the way to the end for some exclusive announcements.

Lets get started!

AMC Stock Prediction

Last week I predicted we would be breaking the $30 level of resistance after consolidating in that range all month and it came to fruition!

The following day, someone wanted me to make another prediction, LOL. We are now trading in the mid $40s and on our way to $50+.

Based on the information at hand, I now feel comfortable assessing our current situation and what could potentially lie ahead.

Proposal NSCC-005 is raising margin requirements on short sellers by 2500%! That means their minimum margin requirement is going from $10,000 to $250,000.

DTCC NSCC 005
NSCC 005 Effective on 9/3/2021, 10AM EST.

If short sellers cannot mean this insane demand, they will be forced to meet the margin requirements by getting their positions liquidated. Otherwise, they’ll have to close their positions and throw in the towel for good.

Apes, keep hodling. The greatest transfer of wealth is happening right now. And if by any chance you haven’t read my list of affirmations, I’ll be leaving a link below so you can keep em’ tight.

The Domino Effect

The first line of defense to close their positions will be the smaller short sellers. These will be the ones who cannot afford to keep $250k in their margin accounts. They will be the first to transfer their wealth to the community.

The second line of defense will be the short sellers who can afford to keep a quarter million dollars in their accounts. These positions will slowly begin to get closed out as they struggle to meet margin requirements as AMC’s stock price continues to surge.

They might close out a few positions in order to meet the minimum level required before they can no longer afford to. Once these short sellers have closed, we are left with the hedge funds.

Hedge funds can hold anywhere between $5-$35 billion in assets. Retail investors have the power to bankrupt smaller hedge funds by holding their positions regardless of the upswings.

The community would have to hold as AMC begins to experience takeoff. It’s during this third phase where AMC would have left earth’s atmosphere. Closing before then and you’re still on earth.

I would hate to live in that regret.

This Will Affect All Momentum Plays With High SI

The amazing thing about what is happening is that this margin raise will affect every single short squeeze play on the table right now. Momentum stocks with high short interest will also skyrocket as shorts liquidate their positions.

So if you’re holding several plays, expect them to push upwards in the next days and weeks to come.

Cheers to you.

Your Conviction Will Be Tested

The time will come when your conviction is truly tested. The quick surge will get your heart racing and probably give you pale skin, lol.

Remember that one day of massive gains is just that, one day. GameStop did not get near $500 per share in one day. It took a few days after it started ripping but each day consisted of massive gains.

Something else to keep in mind is that short sellers will do everything in their power to bring the price down this week before margin requirements are raised.

Just know that all this f’ery is only temporary. Can you imagine what they’re going through right now? Pretty soon they’re going to have to sell their cars and homes to keep enough cash in the accounts!

Ladies and gentlemen, short seller are about to lose it all.

Will A Short Squeeze Happen In September?

I think the beginning of an AMC short squeeze could certainly happen in September. And there’s no doubt we will experience a series of gamma squeezes prior to it.

And of course this applies to all high short interest plays as well.

So if you’re looking to increase your position in AMC, now is the time to do it. AMC stock is about to break $50 per share and isn’t waiting on anyone. With margin requirements going up by 2500% there’s no telling just how high the stock can go next week.

One thing is certain, massive gains are on their way.
