Citadel Fights The SEC On New D-Limit Order Against Arbitrage

Citadel vs SEC Court Hearing On October 25th
Citadel Securities LLC v. SEC October 25th | Citadel Securities sues SEC

BREAKING: Citadel is suing the SEC over the new D-Limit order that would protect displayed lit orders from being picked off by latency arbitrage players.

β€œThe SEC failed to properly consider the costs and burdens imposed by this proposal that will undermine the reliability of our markets and harm tens of millions of retail investors,” a Citadel Securities spokeswoman said in an email on Friday, via Reuters.

Now, this has been an ongoing battle since last year. However, new documents show this fight has risen in court again.

In fact, the new court date is set for October 25th of this month. This is big.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I’m going to be breaking down the D-Limit order and the Citadel Securities LLC vs SEC court hearing.

Let’s get started!

Community, the news that has come up today has been an ongoing fight since before GameStop began moving up between the months of October-January.

I’m going to break down the entire investigation leading up to today’s recent news and court date.

What Is The D-Limit Order?

SEC

The D-Limit order is designed to protect liquidity providers from potential “adverse selection” by latency arbitrage trading strategies.

This rule basically gives traders a way to buy or sell stock at the exchange while protecting them against unfavorable price moves, via Reuters.

“The D-Limit Order is an artificial intelligence order type that protects displayed lit orders from  being picked off by latency arbitrage players.”

“It aims to benefit displayed equity market quotes with better prices, larger displayed sizes and more competition among liquidity providers.” via, JLN.  

This order is a massive threat to Citadel as it takes away predatory trading through the practices of market arbitrage.

What Is Market Arbitrage?

Market arbitrage is the act of buying a security in one market and simultaneously selling it in another market for a higher price.

Traders frequently attempt to exploit the arbitrage opportunity by buying a stock on a foreign exchange where the share price hasn’t yet been adjusted for the fluctuating exchange rate, via Investopedia.

This type of trading takes advantage of everyone involved, including retail investors.

Citadel personnel argue that the D-Limit rule is detrimental to millions of retail investors and undermine the reliability of the markets.

How could you even argue the point, that’s insane!

Market arbitrage is a form of predatory trading.

The D-Limit order fights against latency arbitrage from high frequency traders such as Citadel Securities.

This D-Limit order would provide the markets with more accurate prices and prevent HFT firms from using arbitrage strategies to plummet or extensively short stocks.

In short, Citadel Securities has been fighting the SEC to continue using manipulative strategies against retail investors.

Apes in the community will have to back up the SEC to create this massive change in our markets.

Citadel Securities VS SEC October 25th, 2021

This battle between Citadel Securities and the SEC has been occurring for quite some time now.

However, Citadel and the SEC now have a new court hearing on October 25th, 2021. The fight for a fair market continues.

The lawsuit fights against the use of the D-Limit order through the IEX exchange that would provide the markets with a solution against arbitrage trading via AI technology.

Argument: Citadel Enjoys Unfair Advantages Over Other Participants

Citadel Securities has been facing major scrutiny all over social media and is now being recognized for it’s multiple scandals in the public’s eye.

In a series of documents detailing the court hearing, the SEC explains how Citadel has profited billions from high frequency trading.

Source: page 13

This D-Limit order won’t just target Citadel Securities, it’s going after a handful of other high frequency trading firms.

Eliminating these manipulative strategies would be extremely bullish for retail investors.

For example, the markets wouldn’t be as volatile.

High frequency trading has been the cause for several market meltdowns so eliminating this practice would provide retail investors with a fair playground.

Citadel, as a market maker processes more than 40% retail investor trades in the market. 100% come from Robinhood.

This means Citadel has been making money from every trade that’s been processed merely from high frequency trading.

You essentially have this monster of a company making money off of every opportunity they can get a hold of, even if it means cheating retail investors.

Opposing this order is not protecting retail investors! Citadel is suing the SEC to continue this market manipulation and we cannot let this happen.

The Citadel Securities vs SEC lawsuit will take place on Monday, October 25th.

How Will The D-Limit Order Affect Meme Stocks?

Meme stocks

The D-Limit order will allow momentum stocks such as AMC and GameStop to run more naturally by eliminating some of the manipulation that suppresses the stocks from performing better.

The thing about arbitrage trading is that because these hedge funds are able to find foreign exchanges where the price hasn’t yet been adjusted, they can buy ‘current’ priced stocks and sell short in other exchanges.

The D-Limit order is meant to eliminate these strategies.

This market arbitrage could very well explain how hedge funds and HFT firms have been able to short momentum stocks despite the massive buying pressure from retail investors.

Massive kudos to the SEC for fighting against Citadel. There’s a lot going on in the background that we usually aren’t aware of.

I feel that as a community we must give strength to our regulators to make a difference in the markets.

This is a democracy and we want a fair market after all.

Will The D-Limit Order Be Upheld?

The D-Limit order would create a massive change in the markets in general, not just for the ape community.

This order must be upheld. There is absolutely no justification as to why it wouldn’t be.

It is up to our community as engaged and active investors to make this information known. And it is up to us to fully support it’s nature to create real change in the markets.

Our community doesn’t have the full trust from the SEC, yet.

But we must support those in power who can fight against the market manipulation head on.

An AMC and GME short squeeze depend on it. Hedge funds will not go down without a fight so a fight it is.

A fight for a fair market, a fight for the community, and a fight for your financial freedom.

MOASS is inevitable, but it will be up to us to ensure it’s fruition.

Final Words…

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.

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

Franknez.com Bank of America bankruptcy

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 weeks and days.

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.

Bank of America shorting AMC Stock
SOURCE

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

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.

Fed’s Kaplan And Rosengren Resign In Market Manipulation Scandal

Kaplan and Rosengren resign from FED
Rosengren and Kaplan Resign

BREAKING NEWS: Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Robert Kaplan, and Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren resign after trading in securities despite playing key roles in deciding U.S monetary policy, via REUTERS.

This news can explain why so much market manipulation has been allowed. Leaders have been allowing illicit activities to persist in the markets for their own financial gain.

How soon will retail investors be allowed to participate in a fair market?

Franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today’s blog post will be brief. I want to uncover more of the manipulation occurring in our markets today.

Lets get started!

How The Fed Took Control Of The Economy

“The central bank is turning into a hedge fund”, says David Rosenberg. This statement alone is quite shocking. David said this about a year ago when the Feds began to pump more money into the markets.

AXIOS believes the market is now governed by an unelected and large independent group of technocrats that directs it by creating massive amounts of money and buying assets with it.

Will people be held accountable? Possibly to a certain degree. I believe we will see more people walk out with millions to billions of dollars instead of serving prison time.

Regardless, our country needs a new generation of delegates and people in power.

Both Kaplan and Rosengren are under high scrutiny for buying and selling millions of dollars in individual stocks. According to WSJ, 11 out of 12 Fed banks disclosed the financial profiles of their leaders.

Is The Fed Fit To Serve Its People?

Fed chairman Jerome Powell noted his displeasure with the trading controversy, saying “no one is happy about it”. Jerome vowed new rules would be put in place.

Both Kaplan and Rosengren said they would sell all their individual stock on September 30th. Kaplan and Rosengren both actively traded stocks and other investments while also helping to set monetary policy.

I mean, we can’t let two people give the Feds as a whole a bad rep, can we? Be sure to subscribe to the blog for more market and finance news.

SPRT Stock Is About To Squeeze: Get Ready

SPRT Stock Short Squeeze
SPRT Short Squeeze

SPRT stock is up more than 860% year-to-date and is getting ready to blow. It saw more than a 180% jump last week and retail investors are anticipating this is only the beginning.

The stock closed at $26.33 on Friday (8.27) after reaching an all time high of $59 per share. The stock remained in green territory despite the selloff from quick traders.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – SPRT stock has a short interest of 63.14% and we need to talk about this.

Lets get started!

SPRT Stock Short Interest

SPRT Short Interest

That’s right, according to Ortex SPRT has a short interest of 63.14%. This means almost 3/4ths of the stock’s float is being shorted.

Community, SPRT stock is massively shorted. If you took profits this past Friday congrats on your gains. I know a lot of you moved these to either your AMC or GME stock positions.

However, this runup seems to have been just that, a runup. Retail investors are anticipating a short squeeze from SPRT stock in the next few trading days of September.

SPRT has an average volume of 13 million but topped at 166 million on Friday (8.27). This massive volume pumped SPRT stock price up to the $50 range and beyond before getting shorted down to the mid $20 range.

SPRT Short Volume Ratio

SPRT stock had a short volume ratio of 49.45 on Friday, via Fintel. This means almost half of the volume on Friday was being shorted. Even then, the stock was able to make massive moves and still finish green both intraday and after hours.

SPRT Stock DD

The gamma squeeze we experienced on Friday seems to only be the beginning. The short interest is ridiculously high and with the overall float being much smaller than that of AMC or GME, there are more shorts in this play that will get wrecked short-term.

Why Haven’t We Heard of SPRT Stock?

In all honestly I have to blame myself. I should be on top of these plays and providing the information out to you so that you may digest the information and make a financial decision for yourself.

Two of the biggest plays in the ape community are AMC and GME. This is not going to change. However, I will be sharing information from other plays where the community can multiply their money. These plays will be updated on the momentum stocks tab of the blog.

There’s a lot of information and plays out there that simply haven’t had the reach they need to make an appearance to us at scale. For this reason is why I will make this platform a designated place where you can find this information out from.

Should You Buy SPRT Stock?

SPRT stock ended the trading day on Friday (8.27) with the MACd crossing downwards. This leads me to believe that SPRT stock will continue to drop in share price before finding a new level of support.

There is massive volume coming into this play right now that can easily deflect short sellers and counter with a bounce.

The stock today is on massive discount. The biggest signs pointing towards a short squeeze is how high the short interest is.

After the rally up to $50+ dollars, the short interest has gone down about 10% meaning short sellers might have covered a few of their positions. However, the stock still has a massive short interest!

Well now there’s exposure. More retail investors now know that there is a stock out there that was being shorted on the hush hush with over 75% SI at the time.

Retail investors who made money on SPRT’s runup have moved gains over to AMC or GME stock. Since SPRT has not squeezed yet, this momentum play could be a great way to multiply cash at hand for your main short squeeze plays.

Is SPRT Stock A Distraction?

SPRT stock is not a distraction. GME apes at one point believed AMC to be a distraction but the community noticed the incredible opportunity with this stock as well.

SPRT simply has not been exposed to the community. If there’s something I’d like you to take from Franknez.com is the amount of opportunities that will present themselves to you when you visit the blog.

You have a choice to keep HODLing your main plays, or to put some money in this incredibly shorted stock. No matter what you choose to do, you will always have opportunities to multiply your money.

Robinhood Acquires Say Technologies In $140 Million Cash Deal

Robinhood acquires say technologies
Robinhood acquires say technologies – investing news

Robinhood (NYSE: HOOD) just acquired Say Technologies for $140 million cash. This is the same company AMC Entertainment used to connect with its shareholders.

Say Technologies allowed the AMC community to ask Adam Aron questions to be answered during the Q2 earnings conference call. Retail investors already want out.

It seems that the community does not want to partake in anything with Robinhood’s name on it. Here’s what’s going on.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I’m going to be discussing finance news with the community.

Lets get started!

Retail Investors Provided Say Technologies With Confidential Information

One of the biggest reasons retail investors are disconnecting from Say Technologies is because of how much confidential information was provided to the company.

Now, AMC shareholders are concerned their information is at risk with Robinhood acquiring the company. Robinhood is an affiliate partner to the unregulated hedge fund monster, Citadel Securities.

Retail investors fear that the information they provided the company may be used against them as Robinhood is no longer a trusted broker in the community.

What Information Does Say Technologies Track?

According to their website, Say Technologies tracks the following:

  • Investments
  • Trade History
  • Balances
  • Name and Contact Information
Say technologies

The company continues to use and store ongoing information for as long as you’re connected to the service.

Say Technologies Compromised?

Shareholders were required to provide the login information to their broker accounts which also calculated and registered their positions.

Now, retail investors aren’t so sure they can trust the company with Robinhood overseeing it.

If you signed up with Say Technologies you can still unlink your brokerage account. Be sure to change your brokerage account password once you’ve disconnected to ensure your private information is no longer monitored.

Did you sign up with Say Technologies?

Let me know in the comment section below. Will you keep using the service or will you be unlinking?

Adam Aron, CEO and Chairman of AMC Entertainment announced during the Q2 earnings conference call that AMC theaters would be accepting Bitcoin as online payment for movie tickets by the end of 2021.

Adam said he had been doing deep research in blockchain technology to set up systems to make this happen. The CEO is well aware that its shareholders are big on crypto and wants to further provide value to the community.

In addition, AMC Entertainment will also begin to accept Apple Pay and Google Pay. The chains’ focus at the moment is on providing convenience on top of convenience.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to talk about what this incredible announcement will mean for AMC Entertainment, the stock, and shareholders alike.

Lets get started!

There is so much to talk about here. The Q2 earnings conference call went amazing. AMC shareholders should be just as excited as I am. Cheers to continuous growth.

Adam Aron Shuts Down Naysayers

During the Q2 earning’s call, Adam Aron confidently shut down naysayers doubting AMC’s capabilities and projected growth. The chain is doubling sales through rising attendance and an increased ticket and food sales.

“In short, AMC crushed it in Q2” – Adam Aron.

If you listened to both Q1 and Q2 conference call, then you know just how confident, mature, and innovative AMC projected itself to be this time around.

Rich Greenfield must be planning another way to strike back at the company, that is unless he’s been found with his foot in his mouth.

AMC and GameStop Partnership Teaser

AMC GameStop partnership
AMC GameStop Partnership

Adam Aron left shareholders in awe after teasing about a possible partnership with GameStop for an ultimate gaming experience in AMC theaters.

He did not say much but did confirm that they are currently discussing innovation to deliver the ultimate move and gaming experience to both their shareholders and guests.

If we’re talking company fundamentals, talks of partnerships and innovation should reflect in both AMC and GME stock in the days to come. I will keep an eye out for more information as more updates unfold.

Warner Bros. Provides Exclusive Window To AMC Entertainment

AMC Warner Bros
AMC Warner Bros News

Warner Brothers and AMC Entertainment just came to an agreement of a 45 day window on new releases. Warner Bros. will not be releasing new films to Disney or other streaming platforms with a 45 day period of its premier.

What a jab to forces claiming AMC Entertainment would lose to online streaming. Streaming services will now be denied access to release new titles as soon as they are released.

Congratulations to AMC Entertainment and CEO Adam Aron on this massive move. As an AMC shareholder it makes me real happy to see this company succeed.

AMC Entertainment Is Working On Bringing Sports To The Big Screen

The AMC UFC showings were a massive success. Showings sold out quick and AMC Entertainment now wants to bring more to the big screen!

“My bet is that we will see more partnerships like this in the near future as venues seek to diversify their offerings and leagues look for increasingly innovative ways to engage fans”, via. Front Office Sports.

AMC UFC Showing

Adam Aron announced during the Q2 earnings conference call that the company is working on sealing contracts with the sports industry to screen several type of sport events.

These news has sports fans enthusiastic about new experiences for moviegoers. It’s this type of innovation that will put AMC Entertainment in the eyes of traditional investors who aren’t part of the ape community.

In addition, the CEO is also looking to reserve the rights to showcase more musical events such as that of Chance The Rapper’s ‘Magnificent Coloring World’. Music lovers will get a chance to experience grand shows and performances from the big screen very soon.

‘HODL’, Did You Catch It?

If you didn’t catch this bit during the conference it’s okay. It was very subtle but nonetheless massive news for retail investors.

Adam Aron confirmed him and executives would be ‘holding’ the stock. This means executives cannot sell their shares as AMC’s stock price begins to climb, preventing momentum.

Executives are required to hold their shares under contract for a certain amount of years before they can sell and cash in. For the ape community this means we’re in the clear from the company’s side that is.

So although we don’t have control of what other institutions do as the stock begins to surge again, we know Adam Aron and his team upstairs will not be selling.

A Bright Future Ahead

AMC ended the June 30, 2021 quarter with more than $2 billion of liquidity. This is double the highest quarter ending liquidity level AMC Entertainment has ever had in its 101 year history.

The chain plans to reinvest into the company to enhance the guest experience while increasing it’s revenue through new partnerships in show business.

So, what does this mean for AMC shareholders? Nothing but great news. I expect the buzz will bring in traditional investors for the long haul. AMC stock is the number 1 stock in the market right now and the community only keeps getting stronger.

Share these news with an ape in the community.

CNBC’s Melissa Lee Speaks Out On Dark Pool Manipulation

Melissa Lee Dark Pools
Melissa Lee Dark Pools – AMC & GameStop Stock

Melissa Lee is a reporter and news anchor for CNBC and is currently the host for Fast Money. Fast Money is a program that provides traders with information that is usually reserved for the Wall Street trading floor.

Melissa Lee has been highly appreciated by a very special group of retail investors in the AMC and GameStop community. For months now, these two groups have been uncovering the manipulation in the stock market.

The facts are AMC and GME stock should have naturally risen to higher prices. Hedge funds have been able to suppress the stock price by naked shorting it in dark pools (unregulated trading exchanges using synthetic shares).

And now the seeds the community planted early this year are bearing fruit. We’ve been heard.

Welcome to Franknez.com – today we’re going to be discussing a win for the AMC and GameStop community. Amazing things are happening.

Lets get started!

SEC Is Looking Into Dark Pools

Melissa Lee took to twitter to share an important piece of information related to dark pools and stock market manipulation. She shared a video of Gary Gensler, Chairman of the SEC, in an interview with CNBC.

“SEC IS looking into dark pools and how so much retail volume is being sent to wholesalers/ off exchange”. Click play on this video, MUST WATCH. Shoutout to Bruce Wayne on Twitter for sharing this.

Gary Gensler is asked what will the SEC do about Reddit and TikTokers promoting stocks and crypto within the community. He says, “it’s trying to foster good debate and dialogue just like on this program here, about investing, and the retail engagement is positive“.

In other words, the SEC has absolutely no concerns with us retail investors. They’re priorities at the moment are looking into hedge funds cheating the markets.

“We’re taking a real close look at market structure”. In THIS SPECIFIC VIDEO shared on Reddit (a little longer), one commentator even stutters in disbelief of the conversation that just took place.

This is a massive win for retail investors holding AMC, GME, SNDL, and BB stock. These heavily shorted companies should begin to see an upwards trend in price action very soon.

Prohibiting FTDs And Naked Shorting

The NSCC has been working with the Feds and SEC to regulate and prevent FTDs and naked shorting from occurring in the market. Proposal NSCC-2021-010 will allow AMC and GameStop to run their course without interruption.

I’ve been saying for months now that our community has the power to make change happen. If you’ve ever shared a TA video, an article, voiced your opinion on social media, and have fought for the community, you made this happen.

And I’m confident once AMC and GameStop squeeze the community will only grow bigger. 2021 is the year the ape community was established. We’re not going anywhere, we will be here for one another when opportunities present themselves.

And when justice is required, we will take action.

Robinhood’s Vlad Tenev Dumps HOOD Stock On IPO Day

Robinhood IPO
Robinhood IPO – HOOD Stock

Robinhood went public on Thursday, July 29th. The company is currently facing massive scrutiny over the Citadel-Robinhood market manipulation. Retail investors were prohibited from purchasing GameStop and AMC stock early this year as the affiliate hedge fund partner, Citadel, lost billions during the beginning of the momentum rally.

Retail investors continue to hold and buy the stock in efforts to squeeze shorts out of their long-short positions. The novice investor is no longer looking to invest with Robinhood’s trading app but rather moving towards a more secure and traditional way to invest.

Brokers such as Vanguard and Fidelity are becoming more popular as they provide new retail investors with peace of mind when it comes to buying the stock they want. Now, Robinhood has an entire community of momentum traders betting against the company as a whole. And while not everyone in the community is upset with Robinhood, the negative sentiment within the community weighs heavy.

Welcome to Franknez.com – lets talk investing, entrepreneurship, and just winning in life. Here’s the latest in market news.

Lets get started!

HOOD Stock

Robinhood’s stock ticker symbol, HOOD, started trading at $38 before falling to around $34 per share. The company currently has a market cap of $31 billion dollars. Robinhood’s expected valuation sits at approximately $35 billion dollars. David Trainer, Chief Executive of New Constructs believes the company is overvalued is worth more around $9 billion dollars.

β€œWe think the stock is worth no more than $9 billion and that Robinhood will likely not be able to continue the robust growth it saw in 2020 due to looming regulatory risk, increasing competition and an undifferentiated service.” – David Trainer

As a retail investor who has seen the manipulation behind AMC and GameStop stock, I believe Robinhood is going to have an upper hand during its initial growth before finally tumbling.

β€œWhat’s weird about today,” said Carnegie Mellon University associate professor of finance Bryan Routledge, β€œis there was no news other than the shares started trading. That is puzzling.”

So, there’s already some concern as to why HOOD stock is gaining traction at the moment.

Robinhood IPO – Worst Debut in History

According to experts, Robinhood has had the worst IPO in history dethroning the 2007 IPO of MF Global Holdings Ltd which ended its first day down 8.2%. Robinhood’s was 8.4%.

Luckily for Robinhood, Cathie Wood, CEO of Ark Invest purchased $65 million dollars worth of HOOD stock. This volume pump might be the reason why HOOD stock is trending upwards at the moment.

Ark has not responded to request for comments. Other investors are staying on the sidelines due to valuation concerns and the negative sentiment from retail investors.

What’s preventing investors from buying HOOD stock is the lack of leadership in the company. Vlad Tenev, Robinhood’s CEO, has failed to take responsibility for buying restrictions early this year. What angered retail investors was more so that the platform prevented them from buying only momentum stocks (meme stocks).

The community has felt an insane amount of market manipulation all year with no help from regulators regarding the naked shorting and overleveraged positions and dark pool trading.

Will Robinhood Stock Go Up?

Robinhood would need to continue growing for its stock price to go up. Investors would need to deem HOOD stock not risky and believe in the company’s vision.

However, Vlad Tenev is under high scrutiny at the moment. The link that’s missing or broken, is trust.

Vlad Tenev Dumps Robinhood Stock on IPO Day

On IPO day, Vlad Tenev dumped approximately 7.2 million shares according to this SEC From 4. The dump netted Vlad around $275 million dollars. According to Reuters, Robinhood warned that investors who sell or “flip” their IPO shares could be restricted from participating in future IPO deals.

“We won’t prevent you from selling shares you get through the IPO Access program,” the company said on its website.

“However, if you sell IPO shares within 30 days of the IPO, it’s considered “flipping” and you’ll be restricted from participating in IPOs for 60 days.”

Vlad Tenev, CEO of Robinhood flipped his own IPO shares the same day the company went public.

Should You Buy Robinhood Stock?

I personally couldn’t invest in a company leader that was a culprit to freezing momentum trading to prevent a hedge fund from losing more money than they’d like to. The hypocrisy behind Robinhood’s IPO flip also doesn’t align with my values. And for those reasons I’m out.

Can Robinhood be trusted?

In my personal opinion, no. Robinhood is an affiliate partner to one of the biggest hedge funds shorting both AMC and GameStop stock. These short sellers have driven the stock prices down through manipulation tactics such as naked shorting and dark pool trading.

As AMC and GameStop share prices began to surge, Robinhood restricted retail investors from buying the stocks. When questioned, Vlad denied protecting its hedge fund affiliates. Retail investors and large influencers such as Elon Musk were quick to see past the CEO’s story.

From what I’ve seen, Robinhood has an amazing platform layout which makes the shame that much bigger. Vlad could gain the trust back from retail investors by uncovering the manipulation that went on with it’s clearing house, Citadel Securities.

Citadel Securities is now facing federal investigations.

Bitcoin: Should You Buy The Dip or Wait?

Bitcoin: Should you buy the dip or wait?
Should you buy Bitcoin now?

Bitcoin is currently trading around $40K give or take. Have you been thinking about adding to your position or buying Bitcoin for the first time? This article is going to help you make the best decision for yourself. Should you buy Bitcoin now or wait for another dip?

franknez.com

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

Lets get started!

Bitcoin (BTC) is probably one of the coolest investment vehicles of our time. This cryptocurrency was as low as $2 at some point; can you believe that? Insanity.

I didn’t get into BTC earlier because like most people, I thought it was too late to invest in it. However, when I found out you could buy fractions of this asset and discovered just how high it could go, my mind was changed.

Will Bitcoin go back up?

If you’ve been following BTC for quite some time now, then you’re no stranger to what just occurred a few weeks back.

Bitcoin took a staggering plunge from $60K down to $30K. If you’re an earlier investor this is just a bump in the road. But if you just opened a position in BTC, then you’re down quite a bit to say the least.

Now, because Bitcoin is deflationary, the value of this asset will continue to skyrocket as long as there is a demand for it.

There is a total of 21 million gill in the crypto market for Bitcoin. This is why the cryptocurrency is so valuable. Unlike Dogecoin, BTC is limited.

And when there’s a low supply (scarcity) with a large demand, the value of an asset goes up. It’s simply the way the world works.

Will Bitcoin reach 100K?

Bitcoin going to $100k, then $150k, then $200k: Chamath

In this clip, CNBC’s host asks former Facebook executive, Chamath where Bitcoin is going next. Chamath correctly predicted the rise of Bitcoin since it’s inception. “Bitcoin is going to $100k, then $150k, then $200k”, he says.

This type of news is quite incredible. BTC is currently trading in the low to mid $30K range. If Bitcoin is to run up that high then parking your money in this investment could prove to be quite a great long term move.

You don’t need to be a financial advisor to identify opportunities and recommend them to people. Allocating money here could outperform index funds and most stock investments.

When will BTC reach 100K?

No one can say for sure. But the data shows it’s absolutely possible. What analysts do know is that the chances of it happening this decade are high.

No index fund, REIT, or stock will yield the return Bitcoin can and has yielded. Investing in BTC could be a strategized trade, or a long term multiplier.

The fact that Chamath believes the price of Bitcoin can even reach $200k+ is mind boggling. Bitcoin is my choice of cryptocurrency at the moment.

Why did Bitcoin’s price drop?

Bitcoin’s price drop is only temporary. Investors like you are looking to take advantage of this discount.

The reason Bitcoin and the entire crypto market dropped was due to institutions liquidating their accounts. For what? Who knows.

Retail investors are speculating institutions did these to cover upcoming margin calls in overleveraged accounts such as AMC Entertainment and GameStop.

Don’t be too quick to write these heavily shorted stocks off though. They could just very well prove to be the catalyst to something much bigger in the markets. Both AMC and GME have negative betas meaning when the markets crash, these two stocks will skyrocket.

Will Bitcoin drop again?

According to JP Morgan, Bitcoin could go back down to as low as $23K. The bank valued BTC between $23K-$35K as of late June but has since gone up. With most experts including JP Morgan predicting a six figure price, now is the perfect time to park your money in Bitcoin.

You could wait for BTC to dip more although the cryptocurrency is already on discount per say. You can’t go wrong with either or. If you trust the data that points towards massive Bitcoin gains, then buying any dip at this point is a steal compared to where it’s going to be later on.

Despite the crypto market bleeding, it seems most investors continue to have a positive outlook on BTC.

Does Frank Nez own Bitcoin?

I do own Bitcoin. In fact I put $100 as a ‘tester’ in BTC right before it plunged. I’ve seen a 40% decrease thus far but continue to hold that small position. The drop didn’t surprise me at all. I understand the massive potential BTC has but I also expected this to happen.

There are so many exciting things going on in the market at the moment. I’m up around 400% in AMC Entertainment stock, so far. This stock is set up for a massive short squeeze and I cannot wait for this rocket to take off.

Regarding crypto, I personally have a strong conviction towards BTC and will be increasing my position as it continues to dip and as soon as I raise more capital for a good investment in it. There’s no doubt in my mind this cryptocurrency will continue to drop short term but run up long term.
