Stocks Are Trading Sideways: Is Now Time to Buy?

Market News: Stocks are trading sideways, should you buy?
Market News: Stocks are trading sideways, should you buy?

Stocks are trading sideways, indicating there is indecision in the market.

Despite its macro downtrend this year, the S&P 500 (SPY stock) is retesting its $400 levels after coming down significantly to $350.

As the market sees some bounce, we’re also experiencing major barcoding, or sideways trading.

Market makers are capitalizing on supply and demand zones along with support and resistance levels.

And while day traders are also capitalizing on these swings, it’s retail investors who are stuck in the middle.

Is now the time to buy stocks?

Let’s discuss it below.

Will SPY Break Through?

SPY Stock Chart – Franknez.com.

The SPY is currently in a downtrend channel.

Breaking above the $400 level could mean a strong breakout for the market.

Rejection on the channel’s trendline will result in further market decline where SPY may touch $330.

Buying the market now will play a big role in the momentum needed to break the market’s downtrend.

Our weekly MACD shows us buyers are coming in while our TTM indicator shows us decaying selling momentum, for now.

Market makers and big whales still have the final say of course.

A break above the downtrend signals a great buying opportunity.

Rejection at $400 levels will signify more downtrend for the market lies ahead.

At this point, retail investors may hold off from buying until price hit the next support trendline.

How Soon Will AMC Break the Next Level of Resistance?

when will AMC go up again
Stock Market News: AMC Stock news + More.

AMC stock is up +19.53% in the past month.

The movie theatre chain stock has broken resistance levels after it had bounced at $5 levels.

The $6 levels have been a strong demand zone for AMC, and recent volume has moved the stock up to $8.30.

But recent halts forced the stock to trade below $8, sending it back to $7 levels where it’s currently trading again.

How soon will AMC break the next level of resistance and move past $8 levels?

Let’s discuss what it’s going to take for the movie theatre chain to trigger massive price action again.

Volume is Key, But It’s Come Down

when will AMC go up again?
When will AMC go up again?

It’s not uncommon for trading volume to decline during a bear market.

Investors tend to sell stock more often than buy it during these times.

AMC’s average volume has dropped from 46 million earlier this year to 29.2 million.

There have been trading days where AMC’s share price spikes due to a high-volume day.

But these high-volume trading days have now become somewhat of anomalies compared to last year’s heavy buying weeks and months from retail.

Even now as we see AMC break resistance levels above $6 and $8, we see the importance of big volume days.

The SPY is showing us that the markets are readjusting again, ready for a market bounce after a dreadful bear market.

As investor confidence increases in the market, we may begin to see AMC’s average volume begin to rise again.

AMC’s Fundamentals Strike Wall Street Pessimists

when will AMC go up again?
When will AMC go up again?

Last year we saw many financial institutions were loading up on AMC Entertainment stock around the $9-$14 levels.

The difference this year is that AMC is a much better company fundamentally than it was last year.

Not only has the company cut its debt load, but it’s also beat earnings expectations every quarter since Q1 of 2021.

The century old company continues to be a retail favorite with many shareholders even turned loyal customers.

Shareholders have no doubt the community made up of millions of investors will squeeze short sellers again.

Only this time AMC will reach a new all-time high not seen yet.

Not only is the popularity of AMC increasing, but so is the popularity of investing in the stock market.

New investors getting into the stock market will be looking to capitalize on opportunities such as an AMC short squeeze.

Institutional and retail investor confidence in the market is what’s going to create big volume in the coming weeks as the market continues to bounce.

Worst Case Scenario?

when will AMC go up again?
When will AMC go up again?

My short-term view on AMC Entertainment stock is bullish.

Worst-case scenario is a bounce takes on more of a long-term approach.

Consolidation in AMC will indicate indecision, which means retail investors will need to step it up and demonstrate to institutions AMC is worth going long on.

Afterall, Wall Street can only deny AMC’s progress for so long until the narrative takes a complete 180 degrees.

But ultimately, retail investors are the key here.

Without retail investors, without the public, without the people, AMC stands no chance against Wall Street pessimists who have mainstream media to their advantage.

Was The AMC FTX Token a Scam to Launder Money?

Sam Bankman-Fried | Crypto News: AMC FTX Token a scam?
Sam Bankman-Fried | Crypto News: AMC FTX Token a scam?

There are no signs of AMC Entertainment signing an agreement to the AMC FTX Token listed on the FTX crypto exchange.

When viewing the terms of service and terms of the tokenized stock product (AMC), users are prompted to error pages.

The AMC FTX token is also showing as an ‘invalid symbol’ on the platform with no live chart as we’ve seen in the past.

The tokenized stock was trading at $4 (USD) but has lost all its value since the company collapsed and filed for bankruptcy.

Retail investors are digging deep and are concluding that the crypto exchange could have potentially been using these tokens to launder money.

The FTX scandal only goes deeper into the rabbit hole.

Let’s discuss what happened.

FTX Scandal: What Went Wrong?

What happened to FTX? FTX Scandal
What happened to FTX? FTX scandal | Crypto News.

Cryptocurrency exchange FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on November 11, 2022, after the company’s valuation dropped from $32 billion to bankruptcy in only a matter of days.

The collapse of the cryptocurrency exchange dragged founder and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried’s $16 billion net worth to near-zero.

FTX was responsible for dropping the crypto industry below $1 trillion.

On November 16, a class-action lawsuit was filed in a Florida federal court, alleging that Sam Bankman-Fried created a fraudulent cryptocurrency scheme designed to take advantage of unsophisticated investors from across the country.

Which celebrities were affected by FTX?

Steph Curry FTX

Celebrities named in the lawsuit include Steph Curry, Shaquille O’Neal, Shohei Ohtani, Naomi Osaka, Larry David, and Kevin O’Leary who allegedly helped Bankman-Fried promote the exchange.

FTX became one of the largest crypto exchanges in just three years with a valuation of $32 billion.

Bankman-Fried used aggressive marketing, including a Super Bowl ad campaign, and the purchase of naming rights to the home of the Miami Heat basketball team.

He became known for his political lobbying and donations as well as for working to support the cryptocurrency industry more broadly.

As values plunged in early 2022, he facilitated deals totaling about $1 billion to bail out cryptocurrency companies struggling as a result of the declines in token prices.

Conflict of Interest Created Mass Selloff in FTX

How did Binance play a role in FTX collapse? Binance FTX news.
How did Binance play a role in FTX collapse? Binance FTX news.

FTX’s collapse took place over a 10-day period in Nov. 2022.

The catalyst for the crisis was a Nov. 2 scoop by CoinDesk that revealed that Alameda Research, the quant trading firm also run by Bankman-Fried, held a position worth $5 billion in FTT, the native token of FTX.

The report revealed that Alameda’s investment foundation was also in FTT, the token that its sister company had invented, not a fiat currency or other cryptocurrency.

That prompted concern across the cryptocurrency industry regarding SBF’s companies’ undisclosed leverage and possession of assets.

Here’s when things really started going downhill for FTX.

Binance, the world’s biggest crypto exchange, announced on Nov. 6 that it would sell its entire position in FTT tokens, roughly 23 million FTT tokens worth about $529 million.

Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao said the decision to liquidate the exchange’s FTT position was based on risk management, following the collapse of the Terra (LUNA) crypto token earlier in 2022.

By the next day, FTX was experiencing a liquidity crisis.

Bankman-Fried attempted to reassure FTX investors that its assets were stable, but customers demanded withdrawals worth $6 billion in the days immediately following the CoinDesk report.

Bankman-Fried searched for additional money from venture capitalists before turning to Binance.

The value of FTT fell by 80% in two days.

FTX: A Pyramid Scheme Created from Mass Marketing?

FTX Pyramid Scheme
Was FTX a pyramid scheme? Crypto news and more.

Within hours of filing for bankruptcy, FTX was hacked.

The exchange noted that ‘unauthorized transactions’ close to half a billion dollars in total were stollen from several wallets during a period of days.

Since the incident, regulators of the Bahamas have frozen FTX’s assets, and the company has strongly advised against customer deposits.

What’s occurred with FTX is an ongoing investigation and lawsuit against now ex-CEO Sam Bankman-Fried.

So, was FTX just a scam to laundering money through the use of unauthorized stock tokens and covered by the hack that occurred?

Or was this just a poorly managed incident that occurred without motive?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.

Will AMC Stock Squeeze in 2022? [Short Interest Data]

Will AMC Squeeze in 2022?
AMC Short Squeeze – AMC Entertainment 2022 – AMC Stock Price – AMC Stock Squeeze

Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, but retail investors aren’t budging.

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 low, then you would have missed out on a trade that went as high as 3000% in gains!

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 now gone up to 21%.

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

franknez.com

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

Let’s dive right into it!

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 21.55% (last updated on September 5th).

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 heavily shorted at 21%, this is a short squeeze play in 2022.

A 21% short interest is equivalent to approximately 196.09 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 21% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

AMC’s short interest for 2022 is updated here daily for free, via Ortex.

Whether AMC’s stock price is up or down, the short interest tells us a large portion of AMC’s float continues to be shorted.

The short interest is the main recipe for a short squeeze.

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

Sitting at 21% 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?

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..

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

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.

Here’s how to trade the stock market.

Shareholders Are Preparing for An AMC Short Squeeze

AMC Short Squeeze
Stock Market News: AMC’s high short interest and borrow fee indicate a short squeeze is near.

Shareholders are preparing for an AMC short squeeze as the stock continues to trend upwards and break new levels of resistance.

The movie theatre stock is up +18.40% on the month and up more than +37% in the past week.

Volume has steadily increased and even surpassed the average trading volume of 30 million.

AMC shareholders are speculating big moves may be underway as the rising price triggers short sellers to close out their positions.

AMC’s current short interest is still high at 19.76% per Fintel.

This means there is plenty of shorting in the stock for retail to trigger another massive price move like they did in January but more specifically in June of 2021 when the stock soared to $72 per share.

AMC short interest today

The company has performed well considering it almost faced bankruptcy early last year.

AMC Entertainment has beat quarterly earnings since 2021, striking confidence for an AMC short squeeze in 2022.

And the cost to borrow short shares has also skyrocketed in recent times.

Borrowers are now paying a whopping 66.4% to short the stock!

This is big news.

Let’s discuss it more below.

AMC Short Interest Today

According to Fintel, AMC’s short interest today is sitting at a high 19.76%.

AMC shot up to $72 per share last year when the stock was heavily shorted around 20% short interest.

AMC’s short interest came down to approximately 14% when it had reached its all-time high of $72.

The stock’s price may have come down a long way, but shorting has increased since and so has the short interest.

But AMC is seeing a slight bounce as it rejects the major level of support around $6 per share, currently trading between $7.50 and $8.

Heavy buying pressure is all the movie theatre stock needs to begin following previous trends back up to $9, $14, and $20+ levels.

If retail investors are able to successfully trigger this event, a short squeeze is inevitable.

What makes AMC more interesting now than ever is how high short sellers are paying to borrow the stock compared to earlier this year.

Stonk-O-Tracker is reporting a whopping 66.40% short borrow fee rate.

AMC Short borrow fee rate

This is the annual fee it is now costing hedge funds to short the recovering movie theatre chain.

Liquidation across the markets could explain the obligation to keep up with such a high fee.

But that’s not all, AMC’s short borrow fee rate was as high as 77.80% on Wednesday.

The question is, how long will hedge funds be able to keep up with these losses as retail investors continue to buy and hold AMC stock?

FUD Grows but the Community Still Stands

Join the newsletter below for more stock market news and updates.

There are many doom prophets infiltrating the retail community urging investors to sell their AMC shares.

Claiming that AMC is dead, and it will never squeeze.

Now more than ever, short sellers opposing heavy retail volume are trying to scare shareholders out of their money.

But the AMC community is still standing strong.

Is an AMC short squeeze happening soon?

The probability of retail investors squeezing shorts again is not a far-fetched idea.

We could begin to see bigger price action very soon.

AMC Volume Surges Alongside Price

AMC Stock Surges
Stock Market News: AMC Stock Surges.

AMC’s trading volume on Tuesday rose to 43.9 million, up 12.8 million from the average trading volume of 31.1 million.

Volume has always played an important role in the company’s share price.

Retail investors proved this last year when shares soared from $2 to $20 in January and from $14 to $72 in June of 2021 based on heavy buying.

Time and time again we see AMC surge in price when volume peaks past its average trading volume.

While dark pools do indeed suppress AMC’s share price from reflecting full buyer’s demand, when purchased in mass, retail has power.

Even if they’re only small swings, they get the needle moving which could force shorts to close their positions, initiating a short squeeze.

AMC beat earnings expectations for Q3 of 2022 and saw big revenue from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever scored the second biggest opening of the year behind Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness with a $300 million global launch and $180 million domestic debut.

It’s safe to say AMC Theatres is far from going bankrupt like Wall Street likes to predict.

But does this mean AMC stock is a buy?

AMC Reports $0.22 Loss Per Share ($227 Million)

Stock Market News and Updates: AMC Stock news today.
Stock Market News and Updates: AMC Stock news today.

AMC Entertainment reported a $0.22 loss per share, or $227 million during Q3 earnings.

The company’s shares have declined dramatically during the bear market though investors seem to be gaining confidence again as the S&P 500 begins to bring the entire markets up again.

Despite general market sentiment, AMC Entertainment has been releasing nothing but bullish news all year.

Some analysts have even gone to say that share prices are so low now from their high that now could be a great time for value investors to buy into the company stock.

And I agree.

Whether or not the markets have hit a bottom yet, AMC Entertainment continues to be a retail favorite with a strong CEO who’s willing to do whatever it takes to raise capital and move the company forward.

But I’m curious to know what you think.

How are you feeling about AMC Entertainment stock today?
