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.

Citadel Securities Gets $1.2B Lifeline from Sequoia and Paradigm

Citadel Securities gets $1.2 billion lifeline from Sequoia and Paradigm
Citadel receives private funding for the first time ever

Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin just received a nearly $1.2 billion lifeline from Sequoia and Paradigm.

This is the first time Citadel Securities has ever required private funding to stay afloat.

The hedge fund lost billions of dollars in 2021 due to overleveraging their positions in so called ‘meme stocks’.

Now Sequoia and Paradigm are partnering up with the hedge fund to raise the company’s valuation.

While Citadel Securities processes more than 40% of retail trades, they are now looking to broaden into new markets, including the crypto space.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – Citadel Securities has made it incredibly hard for customers to withdrawal their money. Now, for the first time ever are receiving private funding.

Is the hedge fund in trouble?

Let’s get stared!

Citadel Securities and crypto?

Paradigm is active in crypto companies; a space Ken Griffin has been open about not being too fond over.

If you hold cryptocurrency, leave a comment below letting the community know how you feel about this massive hedge fund joining the space to short crypto.

I doubt Ken Griffin will be offering crypto investment options for long-term price appreciation.

Here’s Ken Griffin’s take on cryptocurrency.

Ken Griffin on crypto

Where is Citadel Securites headed in 2022?

Citadel Securities Sequoia Paradigm

The company’s new valuation puts Citadel Securities at $22 billion.

The hedge fund has proven to create massive systemic risk, even now as it continues to overleverage its short position in ‘meme stocks’ such as AMC Entertainment.

Will it finally cut its ties to the ‘meme stock’ community and broaden its market?

Or will it use every bit of capital they can to keep up with margin requirements in these plays?

The ‘ape community’ continues to fight for a fair market

Retail investors have been exposing Citadel Securities for unfair market practices.

Share price from heavily shorted stocks have been suppressed by hedge funds through a variety of market manipulation tactics.

CNBC’s Melissa Lee and Fox Business’s Charles Payne have called out the use of naked shorting in the markets too.

Dark pool trading in AMC and GME stock have gone as high as 60%-90%.

The community has recently uncovered how private ‘family offices’ also provide hedge funds with a loophole to unregulated trading; as seen with Archegos Capital.

Retail investors in the ape community have scrutinized Citadel Securities for imposing predatorial strategies that will prevent them from getting squeezed from their overleveraged short positions.

The SEC might have turned the cheek, but retail investors aren’t leaving.

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.

GameStop Price Jump: NFT Marketplace or FTDs?

GameStop NFT Marketplace

GameStop saw a massive price jump after hours following the news of the company starting an NFT marketplace.

Community members suspect the price jump was due to FTDs that are finally being exercised.

So, what caused GameStop to have these price fluctuations after hours?

Be sure to leave a comment at the end of the article.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – GameStop’s bullish news on its new NFT marketplace doesn’t have shareholders content. Retail investors expect larger upswings in the coming weeks.

Let’s get started!

GameStop is investing tens of millions of dollars in crypto-related companies that will allow them to develop games with blockchain technology, via ARS Technica.

This is extremely similar to what SHIB is doing with Shiba Inu Games.

Related: Here’s why you shouldn’t sleep on Shiba Inu Coin

It seems GameStop is joining AMC Entertainment getting involved in the crypto space, which in my opinion is a great way to take these two companies to the next level.

As the crypto space continues to puzzle traditional investors, GameStop, along with AMC Entertainment, have a chance at becoming extremely valuable in the long-term process of their growth.

GameStop NFT Marketplace

GameStop NFT Marketplace
GameStop NFT Marketplace

The news of GameStop’s NFT marketplace is not new, in fact it’s been mentioned since May of 2021.

However, it was only a teaser per say as the company was looking for engineers at the time to make this project a reality.

GameStop has now brought on 20 new hires to develop the NFT marketplace, where people can sell and trade NFTs and virtual in-game items, via Kotaku.

When will GameStop launch its NFT Marketplace?

GameStop is launching its NFT marketplace in late 2022.

One of GameStop’s direct competitors will be OpenSea, the NFT marketplace that now has a $13.3 billion valuation.

The companies’ approach towards the NFT and crypto space seems to be rather fitting.

What are your thoughts?

Leave a comment at the bottom of the article.

Could we see a collaboration between AMC and GameStop?

AMC and GameStop collaboration

AMC Entertainment is currently using WAX, or the Worldwide Asset Exchange to distribute its NFTs.

WAX is an energy-efficient, ultra-low carbon footprint blockchain and the first certified carbon neutral, meaning it’s eco-friendly.

WAX is also the world’s leading blockchain, processing 15 million transactions daily.

AMC CEO, Adam Aron has thrown hints of reaching out to GameStop to see how they could collaborate in the future.

No official news of a collaboration has been published yet but with both companies going into the crypto space, this could be exactly what shareholders have been waiting for.

And if you can’t tell from my excitement in this video, the news of such collaboration would be bullish for both AMC and GameStop.

What do you think?

“Millions of Dollars Were Stuck in Limbo” (FTDs)

GameStop FTDs

According to Business Insider, Bloomberg reported that $359 million worth of GME stock were stuck in limbo earlier last year.

More than 1 million GameStop shares were publicly deemed ‘failure-to-deliver’.

FTDs have been a massive problem for retail investors holding both AMC and GameStop shares.

Failure-to-delivers occur when sellers don’t have the shares to settle trades.

So, if there aren’t enough shares to settle, where are short sellers borrowing so many shares from to short GME stock?

The answer may lie in naked shorting and OTC trading.

Shareholders suspect GameStop’s price moves after hours were based on some FTDs settling from December’s batch.

What are your thoughts?

Was GameStop’s price moves based on FTDs settling, or on the bullish news confirming more movement in the NFT Marketplace?

How Do Hedge Funds Manipulate The Stock Market?

How Do Hedge Funds Manipulate The Stock Market?
How hedge funds manipulate the market

Hedge funds have been manipulating the stock market for decades.

But it wasn’t until now that a community has risen to raise awareness of market injustices.

The shorting of both AMC and GameStop stock have uncovered a number of nefarious strategies used against retail investors.

What is the SEC doing to regulate these financial entities?

We’re here to find out.

franknez.com

Let’s get started!

Overleveraging Borrowed Shares

overleveraged borrowed shares

Hedge funds have an incredible supply of short shares available to borrow.

This advantage has allowed them to manipulate a stock’s share price by initiating short-ladder attacks.

While supply and demand are pushing a stock’s price up, hedge funds short the stock using an insane amount of leverage.

This predatorial strategy has yet to be announced as illegal nor has it been addressed by the SEC.

Off Exchange Trading

Hedge funds and market makers are getting away with being able to trade and swap stock in foreign exchanges where the stock’s price isn’t required to be disclosed.

They’re taking retail orders and, in a way, manipulating the circulating supply by not reporting accurate transactions.

We’ve seen this happen with Barclays.

Stock market manipulation
Barclays CEO, Jes Staley – Hedge fund manipulation

Reports by Finra have been made public detailing multiple fines on Barclays for inaccurate books and records.

Barclays is one of Citadels clearing houses.

Off exchange trading where transactions aren’t displayed on the list market such as the NYSE is a massive problem the SEC is still trying to figure out.

Though the SEC is trying to implement the D-Limit order that will allow stocks to trade under IEX, they’re having trouble from hedge funds and market makers.

Citadel has sued the SEC on this matter, we have yet to receive a public update on the case.

Naked Shorting

AMC and GameStop have had an incredible amount of FTDs, or failure-to-delivers.

These are orders that have not been executed in options, and are usually a result of a ‘short party’ not owning or not having all of the underlying asset.

This has led retail investors to the educated assessment that synthetic shares are floating in the market; shares known as naked shares used to short a stock.

According to Investopedia, “Despite being made illegal after the 2008–09 financial crisis, naked shorting continues to happen because of loopholes in rules and discrepancies between paper and electronic trading systems.”

Naked shorting has gone mainstream with CNBC’s Melissa Lee and Fox Business’s Charles Payne bringing light to this predatorial practice in the market.

Retail investors must use their voice to address these issues to the SEC.

The Use of Mainstream Media Outlets

According to The Fool, you should invest in this or that “instead”.

We’ve seen the headlines countless times.

The Motley Fool is a source that provides its subscribers with hand-picked stocks with potential gains.

With tremendous respect, stick to what you do.

The integrity of this company is to help investors pick winning stocks, not to divert them from a stock due to its potential upside that can cause hedge fund partners to lose billions of dollars.

And that’s exactly what happened.

No matter how many times mainstream media outlets tried to divert retail investors from buying AMC stock, it cost hedge funds a lot of money all year.

And at the same time, a lot of retail investors have a lot of unrealized gains.

This ladies and gentlemen is how the media has tried to manipulate the performance of a stock.

This influence can sway a new retail investor from adding to the surging volume of shares being purchased in the market.

To the new retail investor – make your financial decisions based on your own due diligence.

Not on what media sources get paid to write about.

Yahoo Finance & InvestorPlace

Platforms such as Yahoo Finance & InvestorPlace have also had their fair share of negative headlines to try and divert the public from skyrocketing AMC to the moon.

With InvestorPlace even throwing a jab at GME investors saying, “If You’ve Made Money On GameStop, You’re Not An Investing Genius”.

Perhaps not, but I’m pretty certain these investors are wealthier than the person who came up with that punchline.

These media sources have been discouraging new retail investors from investing in AMC since the beginning of the year although the stock is up year-to-date!

Manipulation In The Stock Market

robinhood stock market manipulation
Robing Hood? Stock market manipulation

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the Robinhood scandal.

This is another form of manipulation in the stock market caused by the halt of buying power.

Robinhood prevented its users from buying stocks such as AMC and GME (GameStop) during GME’s bull run.

Although restrictions aren’t as tight anymore, we’re beginning to see trusted and beloved companies get exposed as hedge funds worst nightmares become a reality.

Today we’re seeing more people learn about how the stock market moves.

If more of the public is to understand how hedge funds pose a risk to our economy and businesses, we must expose these financial institutions for who they really are.

Read: Why new retail investors investing in AMC should avoid Robinhood

A House of Cards, r/superstonks (Reddit Post)

A Redditor just posted an insane amount of DD on Reddit.

This long form post discusses the transition from paper filled orders in the stock market to the use of computers going tracing back to the mid 80s.

The post reveals the beginning of issuing naked shares.

We’re also learning that a lot of transaction are being held by the actual institutions that are shorting these stocks.

Robinhood routes more than half of it’s customers to Citadel.

This information has now been disclosed via the Washington Post.

You can read the full Reddit post here.

Trey’s Trades does a quick breakdown on this DD as well.

The video is embedded for your viewing pleasure.

It costs retail investors nothing to hold, but it costs shorts and hedge funds money every day.

It’s only a matter of time before a squeeze occurs, no matter how manipulated the stock market gets.

Franknez.com fights The Fool, Yahoo Finance, and InvestorPlace

franknez.com

Franknez.com is fighting for the community against malpractice from all news media shunning AMC and GameStop.

This platform will serve as a positive media outlet for the community and only spread factual documentation, and news related cited-sources.

I will not encourage retail investors to take a position in AMC.

However, I will outline the facts and evidence to help you make your own personal financial decision.

How can retail investors bring awareness to the community?

Retail investors can expose false information on social media to shine light on manipulation tactics driven by hedge fund partners.

Sharing factual and positive articles relating to the performance or analytics of a particular stock is another way the investing community can stay united.

Franknez.com is a platform for the community.

I am 100% pro retail-investors and I will continue to share DD that point towards an AMC short squeeze as well as any relevant information that exposes malpractice in efforts to raise awareness.

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.

Subscribe to the channel for more content like this

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.

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.

10 Myths About The AMC Apes The Media Has Wrong

Apes Together Strong

Who are the AMC apes?

They’re the retail investors fighting for market change in our financial system.

We’re the ones who saved AMC and GameStop from going bankrupt.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides you with articles on stock, crypto, and market news. Here are 10 myths about the AMC apes the media has wrong.

Let’s get started!

1. “Apes Have No Education”

Apes Together Strong

Apes actually come from a variety of backgrounds and yes, professions.

Retail investors in the community range from your average 9-5 hustlers to business owners, doctors, and even lawyers.

Though many identities are kept hidden, it’s not difficult to see why.

People from all over the world have become an ape for more reasons than just money.

2. “Apes Want To Overthrow The Government”

apes are exposing financial risks

Apes don’t want to overthrow the government, apes actually just want a fair market.

Contrary to how apes are portrayed in the mainstream media, the community is not made up of hooligans who want to overthrow the government.

Apes simply want government to hear the communities concerns regarding the market.

Hedge funds pose risks to our financial system.

The ape community has made it a mission to create real change for a fair market thus sparking a real movement.

3. Not Everyone Is A New Retail Investor

New Retail Investors

The community attracted many new retail investors.

However, many apes have been investing in the stock market for years.

I’ve actually provided the community with my personal long-term winning stock picks for when they’re ready to diversify.

Other apes in the community show new retail investors how to read chart patterns and even how to day-trade other plays that aren’t AMC or GME.

This is the community where the average person can not only learn how to invest in stocks, but also gain magnitudes of value and knowledge.

#4. We Don’t All Hang Out On Reddit

apes wallstreetbets reddit

Although apes started on Reddit, a lot of apes don’t actually affiliate themselves as a ‘Redditor’ or with r/wallstreetbets.

AMC and GME apes have separated from r/wallstreetbets mainly due to an increase in infiltration from shills, toxic persons who’s mission is to bring down the community.

Subcommunities are now much tighter around a variety of influencers within the community as a whole.

And although we don’t often identify as community leaders, influencers have done a great job at keeping retail investors together.

#5. We’re Not 19 Years Old

AMC Apes Retail Investors

Contrary to what the media might think, the ape community is not made up of 19 year-olds.

In fact, majority of apes are much older than that.

But, I won’t give that information out to marketers.

The community isn’t naΓ―ve, there are a lot of wise and intelligent people with real stories and lots of experience here.

The media often times portrays us as rebellious youngsters.

But I believe many of us will actually be the future leaders of our nation.

#6. We Don’t Actually Eat Crayons, Well Sorta

apes eating crayons

Eating crayons is a taunt and is part of the ape community culture.

It’s a message to smart money that we’re dumb money, yet we’re making money while they lose it by shorting AMC and GME stock.

The meaning of eating crayons originally separated us from formally gathering as a community to buy these stocks.

“Buy and hold, but what do I know, I’m just a crayon eating ape.”

Although I must say, I wouldn’t be surprised if some apes do consume these delicious snacks πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚.

#7. “Apes Just Want To Make Quick Money”

apes don't day trade amc or gamestop

If apes wanted to make quick money, then the community would be day-trading AMC and GME stock.

However, that is not the ape way.

Apes buy and hold the stock.

Seasoned apes who got in early could have cashed out tremendous amounts of gains but continue to hold because it’s not about making a quick buck.

It’s about making life changing money through a short squeeze play.

Apes have a why.

In fact, leave a comment below what your why is.

Why do you hold AMC and/or GME stock?

#8. “Apes Worship Adam Aron and Ryan Cohen”

AMC and GameStop Partnership

The community has a tremendous amount of respect for AMC CEO, Adam Aron and GameStop Chairman, Ryan Cohen.

We support them because they’re running the businesses of America’s two favorite stocks.

We want to see them succeed, but we don’t worship them.

In fact, most apes are willing to continue investing in both companies after MOASS, especially if a dividend is announced.

#9. We’re Actually Not Jim Cramer’s Friend

Jim Cramer AMC Apes

Despite The Street’s Jim Cramer portraying to be close to the ape community, he can’t sit with us.

Few apes actually respect the guy, but he can’t sit with us.

Did I mention that?

Mr. Cramer has just contradicted himself too much and the community is huge on trust.

We have more trust for FOX’s Charles Payne and CNBC’s Melissa Lee.

#10. Apes Invest In More Than Just ‘Meme Stocks’

Apes invest in more than just meme stocks

The ape community might have a ton of new retail investors only dedicated to AMC or GME stock specifically.

However, many apes are also invested in other assets such as crypto and even NFTs.

Apes are the retail investors who are finding the early plays and putting their money to work for long-term financial gain.

Some popular crypto apes are currently invested in are Dogecoin and Shiba Inu coin.

These Retail Investors Fight For What’s Right

The AMC and GME communities are a beacon for change.

We seek to establish a fair market so that future generations no longer get taken advantage of by corrupt hedge funds and financial institutions.

I’m confident the fight for a fair market will further continue even after AMC and GME MOASS.

What else does mainstream media need to know about the community?

Reddit Confidentially Files for an IPO A Year After ‘Meme Stocks’

Reddit IPO News
Reddit IPO News

Reddit just filed for an IPO a year after its incredible attention from ‘meme stocks’ on r/wallstreetbets.

The company submitted a draft registration statement on Form S-1 to the SEC related to the proposed IPO.

The number of shares and price range for the IPO has yet to be determined.

I’m extremely curious to hear what the community thinks.

This IPO is currently under review by the SEC.

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s market news is on Reddit filing to go public. This should be interesting.

Let’s get started!

Many of us have spent time on Reddit at least once this year.

Some probably a little too much time, lol.

Should you invest in Reddit?

Let’s discuss it.

How Does Reddit Make Money?

Reddit IPO news – how does Reddit make money?

Reddit generates revenue through advertising and ad-free premium membership plans.

Reddit is currently valued at more than $10 billion dollars and has raised $410 million in funding this year.

The company is reportedly aiming for $15 billion when its IPO comes to market.

In its 16 years, Reddit has mainly focused on growth rather than profitability.

However, fundamentally speaking, the company is very profitable, surpassing $100 million for the very first time in Q2 of this year.

More than 50 million people visit Reddit daily!

Innovation For the Future

Reddit plans to improve product features and advertising products for small and medium-size businesses.

Reddit is also focused on expanding internationally since most of the site is U.S-centric.

Curiosity drove millions of people to Reddit after GameStop and then AMC stock went mainstream.

The site saw an increase in users more specifically in trading and stock investing subreddits.

Wallstreetbets had about 3-4 million members when I joined.

It now has 11.3 million and counting.

Reddit is truly the CEO of forums.

Will You Invest in Reddit Stock?

I’m curious to know your thoughts.

Once approved and Reddit goes public, will you invest in the stock?

I personally wouldn’t mind diversifying my portfolio with a few shares to start and see where it goes.

Comment your thoughts below.
