Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, and their name serves them right.

Mainstream media who serve hedge funds in a conflict of interest have been egging retail investors to not buy the stock all of 2021.

If you listened to The Fool who told you not to buy AMC when its share price was below $20 per share, then you would not be sitting extremely well like a lot of ‘apes’ are.

Investors who bought early are up more than 1200% alone from last year’s run.

While the runup to $72 per share might have caused AMC’s short interest to drop to 14% from 20%, AMC’s short interest has gone up to 17% again.

Ladies and gentlemen, AMC stock has plenty of room for growth in 2022.

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides retail investors with market news with integrity. Today we’re discussing AMC’s short interest data to determine whether it will squeeze in 2022.

Let’s get started!

If you haven’t subscribed to the newsletter, be sure to do so that way you don’t miss out on new information.

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

It’s no secret the financial platforms who have been attacking AMC stock are tied together.

Wall Street Journal’s parent company is News Corp., who also owns Barrons, MarketWatch, and DOW Jones Newswire.

Well, there’s a relationship between Citadel Securities’ CEO Ken Griffin and News Corp (he owns stock).

This creates conflict of interest because of the influence these people in power have who are shorting AMC stock.

Citadel Securities is one of the top 10 financial institutions shorting AMC stock.

So, let’s look at the data that shows whether or not AMC will squeeze in 2022.

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 17%.

The short interest tells us the percentage of a stocks float that is being shorted (shares have been borrowed and not yet closed).

Because AMC is still heavily shorted at 17%, it is still a short squeeze play in 2022.

A 17% short interest is equivalent to approximately 101.29 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

When AMC’s short interest dropped from 20% to 14% (6 points), the share price rose to $72 per share.

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to 17% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

AMC has a high enough short interest to squeeze shorts from their positions in 2022.

Sitting at 17% short interest, it’s more than enough to get the price up well into the high hundreds of dollars per share.

Whether regulators will investigate naked shares, FTDs, and other forms of counterfeit shares for hedge funds to cover is another topic.

AMC will need momentum if it’s to see another massive runup in share price.

Furthermore, hedge funds will lead their customers into losses for the second year in a row if retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock in 2022.

AMC Entertainment stock has plenty of room for growth and mainstream media doesn’t want you to know it.

Who is AMC stock for?

AMC Popcorn

AMC stock is for the retail investors who are willing to take a little risk to multiply their investment through a short squeeze play.

A short squeeze play is a long commitment with incredible upside.

If you’re lucky enough to get involved in the ape community you’ll find yourself fighting for a fair and transparent market, where your voice means everything.

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

why AMC won't squeeze

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

There are many of you who got in when I first began publishing the data early last year and are sitting on unrealized gains today.

And although AMC could have squeezed during various occasions last year, there are still things that can hinder AMC from squeezing this year.

Here’s a list of things that will refrain AMC from squeezing shorts from their positions:

  1. Retail investors start selling AMC stock
  2. Retail investors stop buying AMC stock
  3. New buyers aren’t introduced to the stock or short interest data
  4. Number of day-traders increase
  5. Regulators don’t enforce margin calls / protect retail from market manipulation

The AMC community has not had a problem holding or buying the stock.

One of the biggest problems the community faces today is regulators not protecting retail investors against the predatorial strategies from hedge funds.

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC AMC Stock

AMC stock had multiple chances to squeeze in 2021, however, hedge funds always found a loophole that would prevent them from reporting information, or trading stock in the lit exchange.

Market manipulation continues to be a threat to every retail investor in the market.

AMC Entertainment was on the brink of extinction, it was about to go bankrupt.

Hedge funds took this opportunity to overleverage their short positions in the stock, betting it would close forever.

Once retail investors got in and saved the company, the community uncovered a number of market manipulation tactics that allowed hedge funds to prevent the stock’s share price from soaring.

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

For the ape community, this is more than just a short squeeze play.

It’s about freedom.

Overstock Founder Says SEC Has Always Turned A “Blind Eye”

Overstock founder Patrick Byrne on Market Manipulation and short selling
Overstock founder Patrick Byrne on Market Manipulation and short selling

Overstock Founder Patrick Byrne says the SEC has always turned a blind eye when it comes to predatorial practices in the stock market.

AMC and GME stock have both seen an incredible amount of naked shorting, but regulators have failed to enforce market makers and hedge funds from closing their overleveraged short positions.

The Overstock Founder has an extensive history of fighting for a fair market and explains why the SEC has always turned a blind eye.

I’m going to breakdown key highlights to this incredible interview and embed the video for your viewing pleasure at the end of the article.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights for retail investors and exposes injustices in the market. Today we’re discussing the biggest scandal in history.

Let’s get started!

Who is Patrick Byrne?

Now, if you are not familiar with who Patrick Byrne is, he’s the founder of Overstock.com, an online retail company.

Patrick Byrne has a history of exposing injustices in the market after Overstock experienced an incredible amount of shorting.

His activism and knowledge in the markets grabbed the attention of Chinese economists.

The Chinese have adopted Patrick’s principles and knowledge on how to properly build and run an efficient market that eliminates systemic risk to the country.

He has been under several investigations by the SEC due to exposing the corruption no one is willing to change.

“Since the 90’s, they’ve always turned a blind eye to penny stocks in the market.”

Overstock Founder, Patrick Byrne

How deep are hedge funds in AMC and GameStop?

AMC and GameStop

According to the Overstock founder, he describes short sellers as having their foot on top of a bouncing betty.

Meaning as soon as they take their foot off, a massive explosive is triggered.

The expression denotes the particular circumstances hedge funds and market makers are currently in.

Hedge fund industry expert, Charles Gradante has recently stated that market makers created naked shares to refrain AMC and GameStop from further causing hedge funds great distress.

Read the full article here.

Now, Patrick Byrne confirms hedge funds and market makers will do anything to get out of this sticky situation.

Including using the media to attack AMC and GameStop, and even buy regulators in the SEC to allow the market manipulation to continue.

According to the Overstock founder, the only way out of that bouncing betty is to drive the stock’s price to 0.

Something retail investors are not allowing to happen.

Overstock Founder says the SEC, DTCC, and Fed are all corrupt

SEC is corrupt

In this incredible interview, Patrick depicts all regulators as a stack of turtles (I’ll embed the video below).

They’re all corrupt, all the way down, no matter the branch.

He’s heard Gary Gensler is not one of the ‘corrupt ones’; but although intelligent, might not know how to fix the problem.

Retail investors have been raising awareness of market injustices in hopes to receive acknowledgement from Gary Gensler.

However, the SEC Chairman has failed to take matters seriously.

What will trigger AMC and GameStop to squeeze?

what will cause AMC and GameStop to squeeze

If short sellers are doing everything in their power to drive AMC’s and GameStop’s prices to 0, then retail truly is the only solution.

Buying and holding the stock is what’s keeping AMC and GameStop from going to 0.

If hedge funds drive these two stocks’ price down to 0, they win, and the bouncy betty is disassembled.

And the only way they can accomplish this is if retail investors call it quits.

So, we know that as long as retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock, hedge funds cannot drive the price down to 0.

What is the solution?

Time.

Every day, every week, and every month that hedge funds have not closed their positions, they lose money.

While retail investors accrue unrealized losses, hedge funds and market makers pay a fee to keep to their short positions open.

The time of desperation is already here.

The markets are getting liquidated, mainstream media continues to spread FUD about AMC and GameStop, and retail investors are not leaving.

You’ve already won if you’re holding either stock, you are the bouncing betty.

These multibillion-dollar companies are working together to scare you out of your money first.

They’re doing this by continuously overleveraging their positions and driving the share price down in hopes that retail will sell, and they’ll take the companies down to 0.

Be sure to watch this incredible interview on Overstock founder Patrick Byrne.

Patrick Byrne on short sellers and market manipulation

Exposing manipulation in the markets

Citadel Securities market manipulation

It’s going to take more than just time to trigger a short squeeze.

A short squeeze is going to require the community to demand proper market structure.

Patrick talks about T-Zero and blockchain technology as solutions that would eliminate naked shorting and the suppression of a stock’s share price in the market.

But the SEC considers the Overstock founder’s idea as market manipulation.

The retail community will not squeeze shorts from their positions unless proper market structure is demanded.

Short sellers will need their foot off the bouncing betty for AMC and GameStop to squeeze.

Family Offices Are Unregulated Hedge Funds [Exposed]

Family offices are unregulated hedge funds
Bill Hwang – founder of family office Archegos Capital

Incredible information has surfaced from the community in regard to unregulated hedge funds posing as family offices.

This industry holds trillions of dollars in assets globally with about 40% being held in the United States.

What’s more alarming is that these family offices aren’t regulated nor registered with the SEC (Securities Exchange Commission), allowing financial institutions to use this network of unregulated trading to their advantage.

In this article we’re going to dive deep into the seriousness of this inequality in the markets.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that protects retail investors from injustices in the markets. Today we’re discussing a loophole in the market that has been overlooked.

Let’s get started!

The inception of Archegos family office

Family offices Archegos

A well-known ‘family office’ you might have heard of is Archegos Capital, founded by Bill Hwang.

Archegos family office had $120 billion total exposure according to Credit Suisse Report, causing $10 billion in trading losses to the world’s largest banks.

Two of which included Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley.

Bill Hwang was mentored by hedge fund expert Julian Robertson from Tiger Asia Management and Tiger Asia Partners, a hedge fund that was shut down by the U.S in 2012 for insider trading and manipulating Chinese stocks.

After getting banned from the investment advisory industry and a $44 million settlement with the SEC, Bill Hwang set up his family office, Archegos Capital.

Already with a history in crime, Bill Hwang’s family office was able to get away with several billions of dollars in stock positions due to the lack of regulatory measures.

The Archegos incident is currently known as one of the largest public margin calls in family offices, for now that is.

This shadow industry manages twice more assets than hedge funds registered with the SEC.

Family offices managing trillions in assets

Family Offices trillions in assets
Private offices own approximately twice in assets than hedge funds

Family offices are an unregulated corner of the financial marketplace with an estimated $6 to $7 trillion in assets under management (compared to $3.4 trillion in global hedge funds), via. Inequality.

Archegos revealed that family offices can create systemic risk due to their size, lack of regulation, and growing interest in ‘speculative investments’.

These growing interests in speculative investments may include the shorting of so called ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC and GameStop.

Hedge funds have been overleveraging their short positions in these stocks speculating the companies would go bankrupt shortly after the pandemic.

However, retail investors buying and holding the stock have caused hedge funds betting against these companies to lose billions of dollars.

To refrain from causing their clients further turmoil, we’ve seen an incredible amount of shorting happen in these stocks.

Anomalies in the stocks derive from either naked shorting, a network of unregulated trading, or both.

Hedge funds have used an array of loopholes to suppress the stock price of both AMC and GameStop to minimize consequential losses.

And the retail community is making a lot of noise.

Why aren’t these family offices regulated?

SEC

Those in favor of family offices believe light oversight is justified because these offices only serve private families.

Because they are not serving multiple clients, they believe these offices should not be subject to scrutiny.

Should these businesses be regulated and registered with the SEC?

I’d love to know your thoughts, leave a comment below.

The good news is that we have a New York Congresswoman by the name of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from the House Financial Committee, introducing a bill that would fight to regulate these family offices.

She’s introducing HR 4620, the Family Office Regulation Act of 2021.

After the massive liquidation from Archegos Capital, regulators are seeking to gain access to private information from these family offices in order to mitigate risk.

Hedge funds have incredible access to market manipulation

Market manipulation

Hedge fund industry expert, Charles Gradante has mentioned market makers are in favor of short selling.

In an infinite pool of access to capital from banks, the feds, and family offices, it’s going to take much more than the SEC to regulate the market.

New systems must be put into place, organizations, and activist groups to speak on the matter publicly.

The retail community holding ‘meme stocks’ has sparked a movement to raise awareness surrounding the market manipulation from all complicit parties.

These offices have also moved into the crypto market which could explain the massive liquidity we’re seeing today.

Hedge funds and private offices need to be regulated to prevent market manipulation and systemic risk.

While retail investors bet on the rise and well-being of a company, financial institutions suppress the growth of stocks, posing a major threat to our economy.

China banned Citadel Securities due to “malicious short-selling”, the United States needs to do the same thing.

These massive hedge funds have an incredible network to overleverage their short positions in emerging and growing companies.

Private offices create an extension for hedge funds to short stocks without reporting their positions to the SEC.

And while not all family offices are a loophole for hedge funds, the ‘ape community’ continues to be right.

Why Didn’t AMC Squeeze Last Year in 2021? [Deep Dive]

Why didn't AMC squeeze last year?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze? And can it squeeze this year?

Many of you might be wondering why AMC didn’t squeeze last year in 2021.

The stock had an incredible year overall.

Retail investors who got in for a short squeeze play early came up more than 1000%!

However, these retail investors knowns as ‘apes’ continue to hold the stock into 2022.

After all, people got in for a short squeeze play, not to make a quick buck.

So, why didn’t AMC squeeze last year in 2021?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to touch topic on AMC since it’s been the most anticipated stock of all 2021. You’re going to want to stick around for this one.

Let’s get started!

AMC was one of the most searched for ticker symbols in 2021 and consistently trended on Yahoo Finance throughout the year.

Many of you aren’t new to the blog.

I was an early adopter in the AMC saga and helped a ton of people get in on this play early.

So, what was so special about buying AMC stock in 2021?

After GameStop’s share price increased to incredible levels nearing $500 per share, retail investors noticed AMC’s short interest was also high.

A high short interest meant the stock was heavily shorted therefore short sellers could be squeezed out of their positions, triggering a short squeeze (massive price flux.).

AMC experienced massive gains from $2 per share up to $20 per share.

Momentum then further escalated AMC’s share price to $72 per share before slowly cooling off to today’s price levels.

However, AMC didn’t fully squeeze last year, it merely removed small shorts from their positions during these runups.

But more on that later, let’s break down what is currently going on with AMC stock.

AMC Continues to Be Shorted

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

AMC was one of the heaviest shorted stocks in the market last year.

Though mainstream media might claim that AMC squeezed last year, it only experienced gamma squeezes (momentum).

Because the short interest did fluctuate, we can access that some short covering did indeed occur.

However, AMC’s short interest is still relatively high.

When AMC soared to $72 per share last year the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

AMC’s current short interest is at 17%.

AMC Short Interest 2022

This means there’s ample room for AMC’s share price to continue surging in 2022.

Why didn’t shorts cover their positions in AMC last year?

A few short sellers did cover their short positions in AMC last year, though according to the short interest many open positions remain.

In fact, according to the short interest data, there’s approximately more than 102 million shares on loan that have yet to be closed.

Financial institutions have to close these positions at some point, and that’s whether they’re profitable or not.

Because short squeeze plays are rare, we’re learning more about their development through AMC and GameStop.

The matter of the fact is that AMC Entertainment is no longer going bankrupt so even if the share price drops below $10 and shorts cover profitable, we can expect to see a massive runup from the buying pressure happening all at once.

Why bigger shorts didn’t cover AMC last year is almost like saying why didn’t retail investors sell their stock last year.

Both retail and short sellers are going long on AMC Entertainment stock.

This means eventually individual people from both groups will begin to cave in.

And it’s an entire ecosystem of some taking profits or cutting their losses.

As AMC’s share price continues to drop in 2022, it provides short sellers with open positions in AMC from last year to finally close this year.

The results?

Massive price movements.

Market manipulation events

Market manipulation exposed
Market manipulation exposed

Retail investors who bought AMC stock last year saw a number of ways hedge funds manipulate the market.

From borrowing shares that don’t exist to short the stock, to OTC trading and dark pool trading, retail saw it all.

These predatorial strategies were used in efforts to discourage retail from further buying the stock.

Last year we saw Melvin Capital almost close if it weren’t for Citadel giving them a lifeline.

Mudrick threw in the towel and Archegos went bankrupt.

Anchorage Capital closed after 18 years; they had more than 4 million put options in AMC stock and were one of the top 10 institutional firms shorting AMC stock last year.

Another hedge fund on that list is Citadel Securites who lost billions in AMC in 2021, negatively affecting their customers.

Will this trend continue in 2022?

Leave a comment below.

How long can shorts drag not covering?

Just as retail investors can go long on a stock for many years, short sellers can also drag not covering for long periods of time.

This squeeze play will have intermittent episodes where we see some covering before new shorts open a position.

AMC Entertaiment is a hot spot for short sellers to bet against the stock and the company’s progress.

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?

Why didn't AMC Squeeze in 2021? Can AMC squeeze in 2022?
Why didn’t AMC squeeze in 2021? Can AMC still squeeze in 2022?

As AMC’s share price continues to tumble, short sellers may begin to take profits by closing their short positions.

It’s this buying pressure that will ultimately lead AMC to experience major price moves this year.

Whether these price moves will trigger a chain of short covering or not is an event that has yet to unfold.

Could AMC squeeze in 2022?

Absolutely.

But while regulators fall back on the uncovering of synthetics, for now the short interest is the only data that confirms how much potential this squeeze has.

“Dumb Money” Gained More Than 1200% in AMC Stock Last Year

AMC Dumb Money 2022
Should you invest in AMC stock in 2022?

Dumb money may not be so dumb after all.

The group referred to as “dumb money” ended up making significant gains in 2021 from AMC stock.

Retail investors who got in early made a whopping 1200% return in their investment with the share price only sitting at $27 per share.

Those who traded the stock back in June made nearly 3000% in return when AMC reached $72 per share.

Is dumb money actually dumb?

Here’s what’s next.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the ape community made a ruckus last year and has become a beacon for change in the markets. There’s a lot going on this year and a lot more money to be made.

Let’s get started!

AMC stock took the internet by a storm all of 2021.

It was on the top 10 list of most searched words on Google, and it was the most searched ticker symbol in the markets.

Why did AMC get so much traction?

The story is incredible.

The Data Showed These Possibilities

AMC Short Squeeze Data

You might wonder, how the heck did this stock provide investors with more than 1200% in returns?

The truth is a small group of retail investors on Reddit’s r/wallstreetbets found data that predicted it to do so.

In fact, the data says AMC can still rise much higher than its climb to $72 per share.

See, we knew two things.

AMC stock was heavily shorted, and short sellers (investors betting against the stock), eventually needed to cover.

This meant that as retail investors bought the stock, the demand for it would increase the price, causing a short squeeze (massive price influx).

The people on the opposite side of the spectrum were hedge funds, financial institutions who lost billions of dollars betting the stock would go down.

In the midst of pursuing one of the biggest trades in history, retail investors were able to save AMC Entertainment from going bankrupt.

The century old movie theatre chain raised more than $2 billion dollars in cash and began innovating ever since.

Mainstream media fought hard

What surprised retail investors is how much mainstream media actually cared about their finances.

Finance media warned investors to stay clear from the stock, eventually attacking the company and anyone who invested in it.

The Fool, MarketWatch, Benzinga, Yahoo Finance, and other finance media began attacking the ‘ape community’.

Come to find out there was a massive conflict of interest given that all these news platforms were tied to News Corp., a company indirectly owned by the biggest hedge fund shorting AMC stock, Citadel Securities.

While mainstream media might have been able to scare a few people from their money, the ape community persisted to educate the public.

My platform introduced hundreds of thousands of people to AMC stock, and now millions.

YouTubers such as Trey’s Trades and Matt Kohrs used their channels to expose the data that triggered millions of retail investors to buy the stock.

As an early adopter, my blog has educated the public on the data that predicted these price moves and has fought for a fair market through investigative journalism.

Is the AMC short squeeze over?

is AMC short squeeze over
AMC Entertainment stock was the most searched ticker in 2021

The AMC short squeeze is not over, AMC’s reported short interest is still very high.

Although you cannot buy the stock at $2 or $5 anymore, entry at $25-$27 is very cheap compared to where the price can still go.

AMC’s share price rose from $14 to $72 when the short interest dropped from 20% to 14%.

The short interest is currently at 17% meaning shorts have opened new positions.

And as long as there are this many shorts betting against AMC, they have locked in positions to be squeezed out of.

Third wave price predictions are looking at AMC trading at hundreds of dollars per share.

As retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock en masse, AMC will continue to set new all-time highs (ATH).

Should you buy AMC stock in 2022?

AMC stock 2022
“Dumb money” is still buying AMC Stock in 2022 – AMC Short squeeze 2022

There are conditions to buying AMC stock in 2022.

First, be willing to invest money you can afford to lose because nothing is certain in the markets.

The stock market is a very institution-oriented device and still very much plays in the favor of banks and hedge funds alike.

Your risk tolerance will play a massive role in this trade but could very well be worth it.

To take things into perspective, majority of the community who got into AMC last year is still holding the stock even though they can cash out massive gains.

The reason being is conviction.

AMC has so much more potential, and we are all excited to see it come to fruition this new year.

If this sounds like it could be a play for you then you might want to consider it.

Opportunities like this don’t come very often.

I guess dumb money wasn’t very dumb after all.

TD Ameritrade Reports 40.25% AMC Short Interest

TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest 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%.

So where is TD Ameritrade pulling up this information from?

They actually have a response to that.

franknez.com

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?

TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest Tweet
TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest Tweet

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.

Read: Anchorage Capital closes after betting against AMC stock

Where is this data coming from?

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

TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest 40.25
TD Ameritrade AMC Short Interest 40.25

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.

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 MacroAxis (more on that below).

The shorting of meme stocks could explain why the bank is currently facing liquidity issues.

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 months.

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.

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

franknez.com

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.

Year May End in Short Squeeze Cyclical Rallies Says Analyst

Short Squeeze News Marko Kolanovic
Short Squeeze News – Marko Kolanovic

JP Morgan Chief Global Analyst, Marko Kolanovic, is predicting we will transition into the new year with short squeeze cyclical rallies.

He indicates that short sellers will get squeezed soon due to aggressive shorting and resilient retail investors.

“Large short positions will likely need to be closed before January”, via Business Insider.

This news comes after the retail investor community in AMC and GameStop have been advising about overleveraged hedge funds all year.

GameStop is up 800% and AMC is up more than 1300% year-to-date.

While both stocks have recently come down, they are still heavily shorted with lots of room for growth with a short squeeze.

The ape community has been speaking of a ‘third phase’ where the next runup of both these stocks will reach new ATHs.

But some apes are skeptic.

Will this be a proper short squeeze?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – if you’ve been reading the blog since early 2021 then you’ve probably made a ton of money. And if you’ve diamond handed AMC stock all year, it’s about to get a whole lot better.

Let’s get started!

Massive Moves Are on the Horizon

rocket ship

Mainstream media claimed the runup to $72 per share was AMC’s short squeeze.

Only it wasn’t a proper runup.

AMC has always had more potential due to how overleveraged short sellers are on the company.

The Ape community has held through losses and gains and bought every dip.

This resilience is why AMC stock is setup for another massive runup.

Only this runup will be much larger than the first and second.

TA (Technical Analysis) charts have shown AMC’s next runup could very well reach hundreds of dollars per share.

I’ve predicted AMC’s third runup will easily reach $200-$300 while other analysts in the community are predicting $400-$600 per share.

How high AMC’s price will go will depend on how much short covering actually occurs.

Even then, with millions of synthetics circulating the markets, there’s no question why retail investors are deeming the next runup a ‘fake short squeeze’.

What we do know however is that massive moves are coming up regardless of the label.

Can This Next Runup Trigger MOASS?

While it’s certainly possible the next runup could trigger MOASS, the feds are still investigating hedge funds.

And what’s a proper MOASS if synthetics aren’t fully taken accountability for and covered?

In this video I discuss my thoughts on the topic.

The next runup will mean that every ape invested in AMC will be profitable.

That I’m certain of.

MOASS will occur when these phantom, synthetic shares have been closed.

While the community can put the information out there, it will ultimately be up to regulators to force financial institutions to cover these too.

Retail investors will have to continue fighting for proper market structure if a MOASS is to occur.

In the meantime, the community should keep an eye out on the short interest data.

While Ortex data is self-reported and could very well be higher, it’s the only tool retail investors currently have to measure some ‘squeeze potential’.

Get Excited for Big Moves

franknez.com

Regardless of if the media refers to these coming moves as a short squeeze, the community is going to be very profitable on paper.

What lies after these price runups will become clearer as this play continues to unfold.

Massive moves seem to be up ahead, know what you hold.

Anchorage Capital Closes After Betting Against AMC Stock

Anchorage Capital closes after betting against AMC Stock
Anchorage Capital AMC | Anchorage Capital Closes

Anchorage Capital Group, LLC has announced it is shutting down due to significant losses.

The hedge fund is closing after 18 years and returning the $7.4 billion dollars it manages back to clients.

Their credit fund, Anchorage Capital Partners is suspending clients’ ability to get their money back, via WSJ.

Hedge fund Citadel Securities is facing a similar issue with their clients, preventing them from withdrawing unless they pay a heavy fee.

Anchorage Capital was one of the top 10 financial institutions shorting AMC stock and now they’re throwing in the towel.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – Hedge funds have been warned not to bet against AMC Entertainment or the community. Retail investors are about to shut hedge funds down.

Let’s get started!

Anchorage Capital Had 4 Million Puts of AMC Stock

Anchorage Capital AMC Puts
Anchorage Capital AMC Puts, Source | Hedge fund closes

This hedge fund was betting against AMC in put options.

A put option allows traders to profit from the decline of a stock.

These contracts have an expiration date by which a trade settles if it meets at or below the strike of the bet.

The put buyer’s entire investment can be lost if the stock doesn’t decline below the strike.

This is how hedge funds such as Citadel Securities have lost billions all year.

Retail investors continue to buy and hold AMC stock, meaning short sellers don’t stand a chance against the community supporting the century old theatre chain.

And with AMC Entertainment continuously innovating with crypto, NFTs, and licensing agreements, the company is impenetrable.

The news came shortly after Hong Kong’s $2.8 billion hedge fund Tybourne shut down.

Is this a trend we’re going to continue seeing from hedge funds shorting companies, but more specifically AMC stock?

Without a doubt.

Squeezing Shorts from Their Positions

AMC Short Squeeze Rocket

As retail investors continue to buy and hold AMC stock, they will eventually squeeze shorts from their positions.

The stock has recently come down from the consolidating level ranges of $40 and $30.

Its current share price of $24 seems rather appropriate for hedge funds with overleveraged positions to cover.

That is unless they are willing to lead their customers into the brand-new year with mounting losses again.

AMC is currently oversold and will be making its way back up resulting in further losses for shorts who’ve recently opened new positions.

The company has progressively been paying down its debt every quarter and increasing its revenue throughout the year [read Q3 highlights].

And with an incredibly strong retail community rooting for the company, more hedge funds like Anchorage Capital will begin to realize betting against AMC will result in a massive loss.

Here’s Why Citadel’s Customers Are About to Lose Everything

Citadel Customers, Citadel News

Citadel’s customers are in for a massive shakeup entering 2022.

The hedge fund just updated their liquidity terms for all investors and the institution continues to lose money on bets they’re not willing to close.

They are limiting quarterly withdrawals to 6.25%, meaning it would take 16 quarters, or four years to fully pull out unless the client is willing to pay a fee.

Unless Citadel Securities closes their heavily shorted positions in both AMC and GME, clients are in for more losses leading into 2022.

Should clients pull out?

It’s definitely worth considering.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – hedge fund Citadel Securities has just made a desperate attempt to keep their clients’ money. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Let’s get started!

Community, this is massive.

Aside from setting tighter restrictions on withdrawals, Citadel Securities is also giving their clients an ultimatum.

Citadel Gives Desperate Ultimatum to Customers

Citadel’s funds are currently closed to new investors, so if someone quits, they might not be allowed back in the future.

The hedge fund has given this desperate ultimatum to its customers in efforts to hedge against losing bets.

Citadel Securities has lost billions of dollars all year betting against AMC and GameStop.

Retail investors have been fighting this adversary from trying to bankrupt two of America’s favorite companies.

The hedge fund has been notoriously shorting AMC stock despite all talks of bankruptcy officially off the table since early 2021.

Citadel is not stopping despite billions in losses.

And it’s costing their clients a lot of money.

Now, Citadel Securities is making it tougher for their clients to withdrawal their investments.

Citadel will eat every single one of its clients’ dollars to fight retail investors.

Will Citadel Keep Losing Money?

The entire stock market has been volatile in general.

However, Citadel Securities has amounted billions of dollars in losses due to overleveraging short positions in AMC stock.

Retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock until this hedge fund closes the millions of borrowed shares they have open.

And until they do, customers will continue to face significant losses entering 2022.

Clients can expect to see the same pattern from 2021 if Citadel Securities does not cut their losses.

AMC is not the only stock incurring losses to the hedge fund.

Citadel Securities’ business model is built on shorting stock to earn money on the downside.

And that’s the problem, they’re betting on losers instead of winners.

Should Clients Pull Their Money Out?

should I pull my money out from Citadel

Citadel Securities is one of the largest hedge funds in the world.

They’ve created massive systemic risk for the entire U.S. economy.

Hedge funds such as Millennium, Susquehanna, and 638 are also at risk.

This list of hedge funds shorting AMC stock are playing with their customers money.

Clients have a better chance at yielding returns by opening a brokerage account and investing in an index fund every month.

More of the general public is learning how to invest in stocks.

They’re not looking for hedge funds to play with their money.

They are taking accountability and researching where their money can grow both short-term and long-term.

Analyst Says ‘Buy GME and AMC’ Before Evergrande Crash

evergrande amc citadel

A veteran credit analyst is encouraging buying GME and AMC shares to hedge against a market crash.

In this article I discuss why the possibility of AMC and GME experiencing a MOASS is very likely due to an Evergrande crash.

Now, Dr. Marco Metzler, an advisory board member of the German Market Screen Agency says crypto and ‘meme stocks’ can yield a massive opportunity for investors.

Retail investors in the AMC and GME community have been right all year.

Overleveraged positions, dark pool trading, naked shorting, negative beta, all of it.

AMC and GME stock are going to experience massive short squeezes and hedge funds betting against these two stocks are about to cause severe losses for their clients.
