Feds Hunt For $720 Billion Dollars From Reverse Repo

Get mind blown. The feds are cutting off what could be the last lifeline institutions have for borrowing money. They’re hunting down a whopping $720 billion dollars from a reverse repo.

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!

What is a reverse repo?

A reverse repo is where feds loan out money to institutions such as hedge funds due to cash flow issues. The reason an institution would borrow money from the feds is because they don’t have other cash reserves. When hedge funds borrow money from the fed it usually means it’s a last resort type of situation.

How does this connect with AMC?

Why is this is significant to AMC and the ape community? The feds need their money back, like now. This could explain all the selloffs in the markets. It seems like institutions have liquidated a lot of their positions in the both the stock and crypto markets in order to pay back the feds now.

If hedge funds and institutions don’t have enough capital left in their margin accounts then they’re going to be in some real deep waters. This could finally be the end of it my friends. Short sellers’ nightmares have truly become a reality. I hear margin calls baby. Lets dive in some more.

The Federal Reserve is stepping in

Right off the bat I want to point out that the Federal Reserve is collecting $720 billion back from institutions who borrowed the money. What’s insane is that this maturity, or expiration date is on NET15 from the issue date of Wednesday June 9th, 2021.

This means institutions who borrowed all this money have to pay it all back by June 24th. This could very well explain why the stock market as well as the crypto market have tanked recently. Institutions need cash ASAP.

It’s likely institutions such as hedge funds needed to liquidate their accounts in order to pay back the feds. I mean what else could have possibly caused the entire markets to tumble all at once?

If institutions were borrowing money from the fed as a last resort, what does this mean for hedge funds moving forward? Will hedge funds who borrowed money from a reverse repo be able to cover their minimum margin requirement? And if so at what costs?

Will hedge funds be able to pay back the feds?

Hedge funds borrow money from reverse repos betting that they’re going to make money from it before they pay back the feds. Unfortunately for them this might not be the case this time.

Any institution that has been shorting AMC, GameStop and other ‘meme stocks’ will be paying back the feds at a loss. But it gets worse for short sellers.

Not only are they paying the feds interest, but they’ve also paid a short borrow fee interest all year to borrow stock. Hedge funds are getting hit with a storm of karma if you ask me.

According to Business Insider, hedge funds lost well over $6 billion dollars since the start of May alone and short sellers have lost another $5 billion dollars since the start of the year. Millions more are disintegrating by the day.

Hedge funds are having a terrible 2021 to say the very least. I said this many months back and I’ll say it again. They should have closed their positions when AMC’s stock price fell back down to $8-$14. But I guess ego is king right? Their year is about to get a whole lot worse.

Key Points

  • Reverse repo’s are when feds loan money to institutions having cash flow issues
  • Institutions have to pay back $720 billion dollars by June 24th
  • Hedge funds continue to lose millions to billions each day and are running out of lifelines
  • Short sellers could face margin calls very soon if they cannot meet minimum margin requirements

This is a very exciting time for retail investors. Something incredible is unfolding right before our very own eyes.

Not only is history being written, but justice will be served for the 2008 financial crisis. The average retail investor is about to make the trade of a lifetime.

Will AMC finally squeeze?

I personally think we’re about to start seeing gamma squeeze after gamma squeeze. This will primarily be due to the continued buying pressure from retail investors as well as institutions losing a lot of money, resulting in willingly closing out their positions. And if it’s not willingly then the significant loss of money could lead to immediate liquidation through margin calls.

Short sellers will cave in, they will lose. Whether it’s now or later it really doesn’t matter. But they will. Just like a short squeeze, their fate is inevitable.

He’s a technical analyst that sparked this entire movement with AMC’s short squeeze. I have a tremendous respect for Trey and will always give credit where it’s due.

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!

I recently published an article exposing the ‘lobbied SEC’. The lack of regulation on short positions in AMC has been ignored for too long. Many of you shared this post on Twitter and used the hashtag #SECdoyourjob. I’m confident they saw YOU. So thank you for standing up for change because you got their attention.

Everything is falling right into place for AMC Entertainment stock

Hedge funds betting against this stock are destined to lose. Here’s why:

  • AMC’s fundamentals are no longer fragile. Retail investors and institutions alike are buying the stock. AMC Entertainment is experiencing a surge in sales revenue now that the movie theater franchise is open.
  • Shorts betting against the stock have bitten more than they can chew by continuously shorting AMC stock through the use of synthetic shares.
  • Regulators are now taking the necessary precautions to ensure they don’t lose money as hedge funds continue betting against a soaring and bullish stock.

Retail investors now have the higher floor. The CEO of AMC Entertainment is in touch with his shareholders. Celebrities such as Chance the Rapper have publicly announced the opportunity of this investment. And more people are learning how to invest in the stock market through the platforms such as Franknez.com and other subreddit communities.

ICC-2021-007 proposal gets APPROVED

ICC-2021-007 proposal
SEC AMC

This is huge news for retail investors holding AMC. This document is 9 pages long but I’ve done the DD to help you understand what this proposal means for AMC and how it can trigger a short squeeze.

Approved on 5/18

Many retail investors have been curious as to what this proposal means and why it’s such great news for AMC. This article is going to provide you with a quick rundown of this new proposal and will be updated as new margin call news begin to develop.

1. Flexibility on margin requirements

This proposal provides brokers with flexibility on margin requirements for institutions (hedge funds) maintaining a position in risky plays, such as a short position in AMC.

If brokers feel a short position is too risky then they can raise the amount of equity required in an account.

2. Regulators request collateral

The proposal ensures regulators have some sort of collateral from all the shorting that’s been occurring. Regulators want to make sure that hedge funds have enough cash reserves to meet their minimum equity requirement

Risk management is the biggest takeaway from this proposal.

Margin calls everywhere

Regulators are going to start raising margins depending on how risky the plays are for certain institutions. Their purpose is to limit the amount of leverage hedge funds are able to use. The ICC does not want to be responsible for closing out closing hedge funds’ positions.

This is where we can begin to see shorts cover their positions. If an accounts updated margin exceeds the accounts capital, the broker can either margin call them (cover some risk) or completely liquidate their positions until the margin no longer exceeds the capital.

Overleveraged accounts could get margin called

Margin call

Now, because hedge funds shorting AMC are betting against a bullish stock that only knows up, shorting the stock at the moment is ultra risky. Regulators are going to start demanding higher margin requirements as collateral.

Short sellers are sitting on nearly $1 billion dollars in loses, via REUTERS. A margin call usually occurs when an investment suffers enough losses that the investors margin account goes below a certain amount.

If hedge funds shorting AMC fail to meet a margin call requirement then the broker can begin liquidating their assets without notice. Regulators will only step in to liquidate accounts if hedge funds continue to take a nosedive in loses.

Furthermore, hedge funds are drowning every day retail investors hold the stock.

Expect a surge in price action and volatility

Retail investors can expect a surge in price action in AMC as well as volatility. Hedge funds are still borrowing shares to short the stock meaning they have ammo in their arsenal to drive the price down during upticks.

Shorts are going to begin covering their positions as the stock continues to skyrocket and as margin requirements are increased. A short squeeze is inevitable. Retail investors need to hold, stay the course, and be patient.

Citadel buys AMC stock

Citadel buys AMC stock

Citadel just recently bought AMC stock leaving many retail investors curious behind their motive.

Will they try to reduce their loses through a debit and credit scenario where they’re forced to close their positions but also break even from a squeeze?

Or is their motive to sell and disrupt AMC’s short squeeze? Citadel’s motives will become clear as this squeeze begins to unfold.

Why do I think Citadel is going long on AMC?

The entire market is crashing. These institutions are beginning to deleverage. Pretty soon there’s going to be margin calls liquidating accounts left and right. I think Citadel bought AMC long in order to keep the stocks value. They know they’re losing and they know AMC is now a value play.

A margin call will ensure they have no money left so I personally think AMC is Citadels collateral, or emergency fund post squeeze.

I’ve taken notice many new retail investors aren’t familiar with what a margin call is yet. This term is used a lot within the AMC community when referring to hedge funds.

I’m going to explain what a margin call is in simple ape language and further explain how this relates to hedge funds shorting AMC stock.

Franknez.com what is a margin call?

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!

I want to begin by saying thank you to the community who’s been reading and sharing my articles with new retail investors. You’ve been able to help out so many people and without you none of this possible.

What is a margin call?

A margin call occurs when the value of an investors brokerage account falls below the broker’s required amount. This is when a broker demands that an investor deposits additional money into their account so that it meets the minimum requirement.

A margin call is usually an indicator that a security (asset) held in the margin account has decreased in value. When a margin call occurs, the investor must either add funds to their account or liquidate (sell) some of their assets in that account.

Why does a margin call occur?

  • It may occur when an account runs low on funds usually as a result of a losing trade
  • A margin call occurs when a demand for additional capital is required to meet the minimum margin requirement
  • Brokers may force traders to sell assets, no matter the current market price, in order to meet the margin requirement if the trader does not deposit the funds

How does a margin call work for short sellers (hedge funds)?

Short sellers will always have a margin requirement because their practice involves selling a stock that is borrowed an not owned.

This means that short sellers will always be required to fund their accounts and meet the minimum margin requirement.

If the value of the position falls below the margin requirement, short sellers will be forced to close their positions or increase funds into their account.

Short sellers face major heat

Seeing as AMC has never been this high before, short sellers are more than likely already funding their accounts so they don’t fall below margin requirements. This means Kenny is taking money out of his pocket to keep his short position open in AMC and other so called ‘meme stocks’.

AMC’s highest share price was in the low to mid $30 dollar range back in 2016 before this squeeze play. This means hedge funds and short sellers have negative balances at the moment. Right now they’re feeding their accounts from their pockets.

Retail investors vs short sellers

Retail investors have the upper hand right now. Short sellers are losing a lot of money on paper, and in reality. It really is a game of who caves in first. The AMC community may continue to surge the share price as long as the stock is being bought and held.

Short sellers will be forced to put money from their pockets into their margin accounts or close out their entire position, so as long as the share price continues to keep them negative.

The result? A short squeeze.

When will short sellers be margin called?

Short sellers can be margin called at any given moment. I wouldn’t be surprised if some accounts were already margin called, forcing the investor to fund their account above the margin requirement.

How will we know when shorts begin to cover their positions in AMC?

AMC’s share price will be experiencing several gamma squeezes driving the price action up. These movements will be incremental and much smaller than an actual short squeeze. AMC’s short squeeze will be violent. Hedge funds with a lot of money can hold their positions much longer than individual investors short selling the stock.

When large institutions shorting AMC stock begin covering their positions, we’ll begin to experience the start of a short squeeze.

Retail investors participating in this once in a lifetime trade must continue to do what they’ve already known for months. The tide has turned and soon AMC’s short squeeze will begin to unfold.
