The SEC Is Looking Into Citadel Securities’ Business Model

SEC has launched inquiry into Citadel that targets part of its business model

Ladies and gentlemen, we’re seeing more of these headlines on mainstream media. The SEC and other powerful leaders are looking into Citadel Securities, calling their business model “politically motivated“.

The crackdown is real. I read what both Gary Gensler’s colleagues and people of opposite views have had to say about the SEC’s chairman.

And they both said the same thing… He’s unpredictable, and someone not to underestimate.

I guess retail investors will have to find out for ourselves won’t we?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – massive bullish news coming to you today. Apes, we’re moving in the right direction. Will this crackdown be the catalyst to a short squeeze?

Let’s get started!

Fox Business Live Citadel Video

GOP insiders are saying Biden, the SEC, and Warren have all launched a political vendetta against Citadel Securities.

Dems have been working towards implementing serious consequences for Citadel Securities after the Archegos incident.

It comes as no surprise that the party is pressing on.

It’s also important that we see beyond the political parties. Retail investors are fighting for a fair market.

Our community is so diverse that it in the end it doesn’t matter whether the party fighting against market manipulation is republican or democratic.

We need regulators and people with power to impose serious consequences on the market maker.

After several months of voicing your thoughts about the injustice in the markets, Citadel Securities is finally getting the smackdown.

“There’s A Movement Afoot, To Take Down His Empire”

Charlie Gasparino has always been quick to defend hedge funds betting against ‘meme stocks’.

You might know Gasparino for trolling the AMC community on Twitter.

He argues that PFOF (payment for order flow) works and traders get to trade at no commission for it but fails to understand why retail investors want to remove this practice.

Retail investors don’t want Citadel Securities – who’s a hedge fund, market maker, and dark pool, to process their orders.

Watch the short video below.

Fox Business Live Citadel Video

Retail investors want to eliminate the market manipulation that’s been occurring due to the overleveraged power Citadel Securities has over the retail investor.

In short retail investors want to:

  • Eliminating dark pool trading
  • Get rid of PFOF
  • Have regulators look into insider trading
  • Expose and hold those accountable for the restrictions of buying meme stocks earlier this year
  • Liquidate overleveraged hedge funds

Eliminating these threats from the market would allow both AMC and GameStop to naturally skyrocket based on the laws of supply and demand.

The end game? A massive short squeeze.

Here’s How Citadel Securities Has Abused Their Power In The Market

Citadel Securities is one of the top financial institutions shorting both AMC and GameStop.

And while shorting a stock may not be illegal, trading patterns from several technical analysts shows naked shorting has made itself present again after being deemed illegal due to the Great Recession of 2008.

Intraday trading does not align with the actual sentiment of retail investors.

Unprecedented short-ladder attacks from overleveraged borrowed shares have been a way to cheat in the game too.

Retail investors have every right to buy as much stock as they want.

Suppressing the stock’s price action through leverage from banks and other financial institutions to profit on the downside is the biggest manipulation to have been uncovered in the markets.

Dark Pool Trading Must Be Eliminated

AMC dark pool trading has been as high as 60% in the past few months and has traded higher other days.

This advantage allows hedge funds shorting the stock to drive the price down despite the massive buying pressure from retail investors.

These dark pools can mask the buying pressure from retail, allowing hedge funds to manipulate how the trade is recognized through its share price.

Gasparino fails to recognize that investors are fighting against this type of manipulation in the markets.

He fails to recognize that Citadel is able to process orders through their dark pool without having the incredible retail buying pressure move against them.

Betting against a fair market, and especially against these heavily shorted meme stocks is a sign of weakness.

Rather than covering their short positions, hedge funds, market makers, and the banks have all exposed themselves.

A few months ago I said that this wouldn’t get out of hand unless hedge funds allowed it to by not closing their short positions in AMC and GameStop.

I said it would only escalate and here we are! Everyone is looking at Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin.

“Washington Is Aiming At Ken Griffin”

During the congressional hearing earlier this year, Citadel Securities CEO Ken Griffin was under intense scrutiny.

According to Gasparino, GOP sources are stating there’s a lot of insider talk about Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Gary Gensler going after Ken Griffin.

Citadel Securities processes almost half of all retail orders in the market.

The government is finally waking up to the excessive amount of power this market maker has.

If you’ve been reading FrankNez for quite some time now then you know how much I’ve preached the significance and power of your voice to make change happen.

Everything we’ve endured as a community is beginning to payoff.

Hedge Funds Face Short Sale Disclosure From The SEC

SEC looking into Citadel

The SEC poses a threat to hedge funds through a rule that would enable them to receive short sale disclosure periodically.

The rule may go into effect as early as November. You can read more about it here.

Needless to say, there’s massive change happening in the markets whether we realize it or not.

This change has been happening over a period of 10 months now.

Market regulation that allows retail investors to participate in a fair market could very well be the catalyst for a short squeeze.

By eliminating suppressing forces in the market, we give AMC and GME stock an open runway to move up in a supply and demand play.

Massive buying pressure from retail could force short sellers to close their positions as the price begins to experience larger upswings again.

Apes will have to continue to fight for a fair market and hold the stock if we are to squeeze hedge funds from their positions.

What Other Regulation Do You Want To See In The Markets?

Hedge Funds Face Short Sale Disclosure From The SEC

Short Sale Disclosure
Short Sale Disclosure is big news for retail investors

In today’s market news, the SEC is imposing a new rule that would force money managers to periodically disclose short sale reports.

Hedge funds have already begun to retaliate against the rule as it would give away their ‘trading strategies‘. But hedge funds have also been overleveraging their positions in plays such as AMC and GameStop.

How will this rule make an impact on both these short squeeze plays? I want to discuss why this is very positive news for AMC, GameStop, and other ‘meme stocks’.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – I think it’s safe to say most of you have no faith in the SEC. However, I feel like it’s important for us to intentionally look towards regulators to create real change. We cannot be loud and in the end expect nothing out of it. If we’re going to be loud, expect change to be the result of your efforts. Demand it.

Let’s get started!

Gears Have Begun To Move

Why does change take long? Change usually requires a specific amount of energy to begin manifesting in present time.

The energy it takes to change the color of your living room walls will take more time than the energy that is needed to change a lightbulb in your restroom.

Apes have been asking for massive change; monumental change in the markets.

The change we yearn does not happen with a flick of a switch. The change we’re looking to make will affect millions upon millions of people, even after our stories here on earth are done.

For a movement to make history, massive amounts of action and energy are required. Hence the length of real change to become present.

The community has made itself known to real entities with legal power to make change happen. I’ve been saying it for months now, your voice is a powerful weapon against the corruption in this world.

And because of your boldness and your courage, the gears towards monumental change in the markets have begun to move.

What Does Short Sale Disclosure Mean?

A short sale disclosure would allow the SEC to have full disclosure of the amount of shares that hedge funds are borrowing from other institutions to short stocks in the market.

Here’s where it gets interesting.

We know that hedge funds have been overleveraging their positions through phantom shares, or naked shares (non-existent), due to failure-to-deliver data, dark pool trading percentage, and anomalies in intraday charts that push the price down regardless of buyers outweighing sellers.

A short sale disclosure would mean hedge funds by law will be required to show regulators the powerplant behind the curtains if they are to continue these type of operations.

And hedge funds are nervous. We’ve seen hedge funds beg the OCC to delay liquidation, and are now seeing pushback regarding this new short sale disclosure rule.

Short Sale Disclosure Could Eliminate Naked Shorting In The Markets

At least theoretically right? Hedge funds are able to report information to regulators that essentially lands on a ‘safe zone’ type of filing.

Often times market manipulation is overlooked due to the misinformation that is being reported.

A short sale disclosure puts immense pressure on hedge funds. It could prevent them from engaging in illegal shorting strategies.

Failing to do so could open the possibility to regulators suspending these strategies in general. I don’t doubt that in the fight for a fair market this could become a reality.

A short sale disclosure could be seen as a type of audit to monitor hedge fund activities. The anomalies in the market have gotten the attention of Gary Gensler, chairman of the SEC.

And as I mentioned earlier, it takes a lot of energy and time to get the gears moving.

The short sale disclosure rule could be proposed by November next month, via Bloomberg intel.

Community, this is very optimistic news. We can’t keep attacking the very people who can actually impose regulations on this powerful adversary.

We are a very intelligent community. Let’s not self-sabotage our opportunity to make a real and positive impact in the markets.

Could Short Sale Disclosure Trigger Margin Calls?

If buying power is exceeded, or overleveraged, it’s possible hedge funds could face margin calls. Margin requirements could be raised and accounts may get liquidated depending on the short sale disclosure information.

It may sound simple but know that the markets are far from simple. Hedge funds will not go down without a fight.

But if you’ve seen Ken Griffin recently, it looks like the boss battle is almost over.

How Will This New Rule Affect ‘Meme Stocks’?

Take away massive shorting in the markets and you’ll get the real picture of what a real supply and demand market looks like.

If you analyze the technical chart data of AMC and GameStop you’ll find that the price moves down when it should not be moving down.

You cannot compare how massive buyers are compared to sellers in both these plays, yet we see the price of these stocks get driven down when supply and demand should be narrating a different story.

Hedge funds have been manipulating AMC and GameStop’s price action to benefit financial institutions in a market that’s better-tailored for one player.

This is why the SEC is also implementing the Market Structure Modernization rule. Market plumbing has drawn big attention from politicians, investors, and regulators alike.

The SEC will be targeting PFOF and the market dominance of financial firms, including Robinhood and Citadel Securities.

This would be massive! Retail investors do not trust Citadel to process their securities.

Eliminating the flow of transactions to this financial firm could mean a massive difference in FTDs, and even dark pool trading!

However, this rule could come by April. Change takes time.

Here’s Why An AMC Rebound Is Right Around The Corner

I published this article explaining why I believe AMC will rebound soon. The data has to do with short interest and volume patterns.

A lot of you have shared this article recently and I actually appreciate you for doing so.

I know all too well what it feels like to just want this play to simply pop. Every single one of us has this in common.

Time is on our side, don’t forget to enjoy the present.

Criminal In A Seat Of Power: Rep. David Scott Attacks Retail

David Scott Retail investors
David Scott VS Retail Investors

Rep. David Scott of Congress was once named one of the top 25 most corrupt members of Congress by the political watchdog group of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in 2007.

Now he wants to put a bill that will make it hard for retail investors to participate in the stock market and even implement jail time for users on social media…

Yeah this is not going to go well.. at least for rep. David Scott it’s not.

franknez.com rep david scott

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights for your financial freedom. Today I want to discuss why our community continues to be a beacon for change against market manipulation.

Let’s get started!

Leaders are getting desperate. Retail investors are fighting for a fair market and are now getting attacked for doing so.

I said this on Twitter earlier, it’s going to take every single one of us to make change happen. And although it might not seem like it at the moment, we’ve made quite some progress already.

We’re on the radar now and our voice is being heard. I believe that those who aren’t in favor of a fair market should be looked at very closely.

David Scott Gets Intimidated By The Power of Social Media

I’m not sure if David Scott knows this or not but social media is not a new concept and it’s certainly not going anywhere any time soon.

That is unless Mark Zuckerberg halts the spread of powerful information again, smh.

Social media platforms have allowed communities and people to have a voice they couldn’t otherwise have had decades ago.

When the people begin to make noise for change, they are often ridiculed or labeled as conspiracy theorists as a way to shut down the voice.

Billionaire Grant Cardone just mentioned this on Twitter following the insider scandals occurring within our financial systems.

The truth is, it’s time to pass the torch.

David Scott wants to make it hard for ordinary people to invest in the stock market. This is something I’m 1000% against for.

I believe everyone should have the right to participate in a fair market where they can invest in their favorite companies and also create generational wealth.

FrankNez teaches people how begin investing in both stocks and in crypto. To take this away from the people is blatant manipulation and tyranny in it’s rawest form.

You can’t get mad for losing millions of dollars in the market and then say you want to create a bill so that no one else can play against you. The world doesn’t work that way.

You can see chairman of the SEC Gary Gensler almost pull a smile from hearing David Scott speak. I think this is a clear indication that the SEC has no intention in letting this happen.

What Do You Think?

Do you think Gary Gensler will allow this narrative to become a reality? Let me know in the comment section below or vote on this Twitter poll.

Not a lot of people have faith in Gary Gensler or the SEC but can you imagine the heroes they’d be if they liquidated short sellers and actually began protecting retail from market manipulation?

They would make history!

That’s the kind of power and legacy our leaders have at the moment. The new world we live in rewards its heroes and honors them.

Gary Gensler and the SEC have two very important paths they can choose from. My advice to them? Have courage.

So instead of bashing Gary Gensler and the SEC, I believe we should be encouraging them instead. Because courage isn’t easy, it’s difficult.

It takes courage to stand up for something, it takes courage to make a difference, it takes courage.

Insider Trading Is The Real Problem, Not Retail

Representative David Scott only put a magnifying glass on himself. How about we tackle insider trading and injustices within our own financial system first.

Let’s start at the root. Fed’s Kaplan and Rosengren have already been caught in a scandal regarding insider trading. Policy makers should not be allowed to participate in the markets.

This gives them way too much leverage and allows them to bend rules in their favor. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the real problem – not retail investors.

And those against a fair market know this. But greed doesn’t care about fair. Greed cares about greed.

Gary Gensler knows that prohibiting people from participating in the markets is a direct violation of his duties to serve the people.

I don’t see the chair of the SEC backing up rep. David Scott on his delusional vision of implementing jail time for discussions about stocks on social media.

How are you going to put millions of people in jail for voicing their thoughts and opinions on social media? Guys, I know you can’t see me but I’m facepalming right now.

Let’s not attack David Scott though, the poor man is lacking something significant in his life. No person with their head screwed on right thinks of taking the rights of another human being.

Let’s address the issue civilly.

Can The Government Stop Retail Investors From Trading Stock?

Absolutely not. Any bill preventing the people from trading in a public company is a direct violation of the people’s freedom.

Capitalism is the American way. We have to right to create businesses, establish and donate to charities, as well as support and invest in innovative companies that serve us as consumers.

Limiting who can and can’t trade in the stock market would cause an uproar. CEO’s and influential entrepreneurs thrive from investor relations.

Businesses and investors alike would not support this. Preventing the people from a fair market is un-American.

Americans and our allies will fight for our freedom whether corrupt politicians like it or not. It’s what our founders have done and it’s the reason why the people will always win.

Gary Gensler Under Fire By Retail Investors [Leak]

Gary Gensler Under Fire By Retail Investors. When Will The SEC Step In
Will Gary Gensler protect retail investors from naked shorting and dark pool abuse?

The heat has been turned up. All eyes are on #KenGriffinLied, Gary Gensler, FINRA, and other regulators.

Financial institutions are calling retail investors conspiracy theorists despite a variety of proof leaked across social media. Transcripts, real messages regarding the manipulation that occurred in the markets preventing investors from buying GameStop and AMC stock are beginning to wake up a sleeping giant.

Retail investors cannot be gaslighted. This attention has reached many finance and business personalities including Charles Payne of FOX Business. And he wants to get Ken Griffin or Vlad Tenev on his show.

franknez.com gary gensler

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that fights to protect retail investors against tyranny. Today I’m calling out regulators.

Let’s get started!

Citadel Securities Denies Allegations

Apes have been raising awareness of the manipulation tactics in the market caused by Citadel Securities, Citadel LLC, and Citadel Connect… yeah it’s the same company.

See, the problem is one branch is a market maker, one is a hedge fund, and the other is a dark pool.

Since Citadel is one of the biggest hedge funds and market makers, it gives retail a massive disadvantage because of how their orders are processed.

One company is shorting AMC and GME stock, the other is creating failure-to-delivers, and the third is hiding buying pressure through dark pool processing and trading.

Financial regulators such as the SEC and FINRA are supposed to be protecting retail investors from this very exact type of manipulation.

The AMC and GameStop community have been looking at Gary Gensler, Chairman and President of the SEC to act. And now, the world is looking too.

“Justice delayed is justice denied”

William E. Gladstone

#KenGriffinLied Files Lawsuit Against Flying Company

The AMC community has been flying banners all year. The community gathered to further spread trending Twitter hashtag “#KenGriffinLied” but was halted from doing so through a law suit.

#KenGriffinLied started trending on Twitter when transcripts of coversations between Citadel and Robinhood insiders took place regarding the halt of trading meme stocks earlier this year.

Ken Griffin under oath said his team had no communication with Robinhood’s team in regards to halting trades. The transcripts show there was communication a day prior to the halts.

You can view them here.

Robinhood Sold AMC Portfolio Before Halts

More transcripts have come out regarding the communication between Robinhood and Citadel Securities.

Now that you’ve seen the transcripts between Citadel and Robinhood, the transcripts below will make sense. Two Citadel executives confirm the ‘closing only’ positions of AMC, GME, NOK, BB, and NAKD just to name a few.

Robinhood’s COO, Jim Swartwout said in an internal chat “I sold my AMC today. FYI – tomorrow morning we are moving GME to 100% – so you are aware.” This chat is dated from January 26, 2021. Just two days before trading was halted.

Robinhood sold GameStop stock on January 27, 2021 when it was up more than 1200% before halting trading for everyone else. This blatant manipulation has yet to be addressed by Gary Gensler and financial institutions.

When will the SEC step in to protect retail investors?

Robinhood sold AMC stock before halting trading
Robinhood sold AMC and GameStop stock before halting trades

The halting of ‘meme stocks’ occurred on Thursday, January 28, 2021 and trading resumed on Friday, February 5, 2021.

FINRA Bypassed The Market Manipulation

In another transcript, Citadel Securities Senior Vice President discusses with another Citadel executive on the need to inform FINRA of expectations around a plan for PCO symbols and to expect an increase in complain ‘impact’.

These PCO symbols were AMC, GME, NOK, and BB.

Who Is FINRA?

FINRA is a private American corporation that acts as a self-regulatory organization which regulates member brokerage firms and exchange markets.

Check out what their ‘about’ page says:

“FINRA is authorized by Congress to protect America’s investors by making sure the broker-dealer industry operates fairly and honestly. We oversee more than 624,000 brokers across the countryβ€”and analyze billions of daily market events.

We use innovative AI and machine learning technologies to keep a close eye on the market and provide essential support to investors, regulators, policymakers and other stakeholders.”

This could very well be the AI technology that Citadel uses to track and predict how investors trade in the market. This advantage could be used against retail investors given that Citadel and other hedge funds have been losing billions of dollars from ‘meme stocks’.

Regulators portray to the world that their jobs are to protect retail investors and to ensure the integrity of the markets.

However, they have proven to merely be a tool for someone else’s gain. I speculate lobbying.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”

Martin Luther King

Who Oversees FINRA?

The SEC oversees FINRA as well as other financial institutions in the market. They are granted the power and authority through congress to make real change happen.

So why isn’t Gary Gensler taking action?

Missing Gary Gensler Have You Seen Me

Although we’d like to think the SEC is on the sidelines coming up with solutions, we have not heard from Gary Gensler in regards to the market manipulation that continues to occur with AMC and GameStop.

Mainstream media is finally shedding light on these problems. Now we just need our leaders to begin taking action towards a definitive solution.

What Do Retail Investors Want From The SEC?

Retail investors want a chance at a fair market where the stock they are invested in is not manipulated through naked shorting and dark pool trading.

  1. Eliminate dark pool trading
  2. Ban naked shorting / FTDs
  3. Liquidate/margin call overleveraged hedge funds

Hedge funds shorting AMC, GameStop, and other ‘meme stocks’ are preventing retail investors from participating in a fair market.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen just stated, “there are issues relating to hedge funds and the possibility of leverage..”

You can read the full article here.

Hedge funds are also proving to be the cause of disaster in the markets and are a real threat to the American people.

These financial institutions have been the culprits of devastating economic recessions throughout history. The Feds have just as much of a role to play as the SEC does. The Feds are currently dealing with their own scandal too.

Policy makers are stepping down for illegally trading in securities and playing major roles in monetary policies.

The American people and those who stand by us are holding our leaders accountable. Gary Gensler and the SEC should have taken action many months ago. The next best time to take action is now.

“Injustice alone can shake down the pillars of the skies, and restore the reign of Chaos and Night”

Horace mann
