AMC is About to Squeeze According to this Indicator

AMC News Today - AMC Squeeze
Market News: AMC News today.

AMC is about to squeeze; I mean we’ve heard it all year.

Catalysts have proven to provide false hopes time and time again.

However, there’s one piece of the puzzle you cannot deny, and it’s happening right now.

If you’ve been following my latest blog articles and videos on the channel, you know I’m referring to a special indicator I personally use.

The TTM Squeeze indicator – it signals a major shift in momentum whether it’s bearish or bullish.

The signal just transitioned from bearish momentum to the beginning cycle of what could be massive bullish price action for AMC Entertainment.

I’ve been watching the weekly timeframe on AMC to identify its macro trajectory.

And it’s looking very good.

Let’s break it down together.

TTM Squeeze transition officially confirmed

AMC TTM squeeze transition
AMC TTM Squeeze transition confirmed – Franknez.com.

AMC has officially transitioned from bearish momentum to bullish momentum on the TTM Squeeze indicator.

The chart shown above shows three green momentum candles gradually growing, signaling big price action lies ahead.

Last week I went over AMC’s history correlating its price action with the indicator on my YouTube channel.

And we can see just how accurate this data is.

If you missed that video, you may watch it below.

In the beginning of the year of 2021, AMC’s price action took off as retail investors began to buy the stock in bulk.

That momentum is captured on the TTM Squeeze indicator.

The indicator’s momentum candles kept growing signaling AMC’s price action was not done running yet.

Eventually the momentum signal began to give ‘sell’ warnings after reaching its all-time high, indicating momentum was beginning to dissipate.

This is where we slowly see the TTM squeeze indicator transition from bullish momentum to bearish momentum (red) candles, and AMC’s price action gradually plummet.

After more than a year of downtrend, selling momentum is no longer what it was, and we can see it on the charts.

In order for AMC to have a clean rebound, these momentum candles will have to gradually get larger and larger.

If retail investors are unable to sustain this growth, then it’s very possible sellers will begin to take over again.

But because we are seeing these candles grow every week, it’s a great indication the stock is on track for big growth over the long haul.

Is AMC a buy?

is AMC a buy

According to AMC’s TTM Squeeze indicator, it’s a screaming buy.

The signal is showing AMC is on trajectory for larger price action on the weekly timeframe.

AMC has had a strong level of support in the high $8 to low $9 levels with many anticipating the stock has already hit its bottom.

But I’m curious to know what you think, leave a comment down below.

The Cost for Hedge Funds to Short AMC Rises

Hedge Funds short AMC
Market News: The cost to short AMC stock increases

The cost for hedge funds to short AMC is rising.

Short sellers have been prophesizing the fall of the movie theatre industry after the pandemic temporarily crippled the largest movie theatre chain in the world, AMC Entertainment.

Overleveraged institutions, who many have discovered to be involved in major conflicts of interest, have been able to manipulate the company’s shares from rising through a variety of tools only accessible to financial institutions.

The demand for the movie theatre chain stock has been masked in dark pools, or other foreign exchanges; only a fraction of retail’s money has been observed on the lit exchange (NYSE).

Nonetheless, retail investors have become a massive support for the stock and the company.

So much that even as short sellers drag out getting squeezed from their positions, the cost for hedge funds to short AMC has risen.

Let’s go over the numbers.

AMC’s CTB and short borrow interest fee increase

AMC cost to borrow

AMC’s cost to borrow (CTB) has steadily increased over the past weeks.

According to the reported short interest data provided by Ortex, AMC’s CTB is now at 17.78%.

Ortex’s cost to borrow represents the annualized % of interest on loans from brokers to their clients, i.e., hedge funds.

There are currently 196.09m AMC shares out on loan.

196m shares on loan X 17.78% (CTB) = $34.8 million in interest.

It’s costing short sellers $34.8 million per year to short AMC Entertainment.

This is the fee hedge funds are currently paying to bet against retail investors long on AMC stock.

And this is only including the shares out on loan that are recorded or reported for the public.

The total amount could be less or more.

Stonk-O-Tracker has recorded the interest rate of shares to borrow to be as high as 28.30%.

This number of course fluctuates, but interest rates struggled to move past 1% at the beginning of the year.

The rise in fees plays in retail’s favor.

Related: AMC Nears High Demand Levels: What to Watch For

Will high interest fees force hedge funds to close?

will AMC Squeeze?

High short borrow fees may play a significant role in the closing of short positions for AMC Entertainment stock.

The cost for hedge funds to short AMC will only continue to rise as the demand to borrow these shares is there.

At this point, it seems financial institutions will need to decide when they’ve had enough.

Combine big price action with increased borrow fees and you strengthen the probability of short sellers closing their positions.

Bed Bath & Beyond CFO Dies After Insider Trading Lawsuit Claims

Market News: Bed Bath & Beyond's CFO Gustavo Arnal has died after insider trading claims.
Market News: Bed Bath & Beyond’s CFO Gustavo Arnal has died after insider trading claims.

Bed Bath & Beyond’s CFO Gustavo Arnal died shortly after facing lawsuit claims of insider trading with GameStop’s Ryan Cohen.

His death occurred days after the company had announced it would be closing 150 stores and cutting 20% of its corporate staff.

The incident occurred less than two weeks after the executive, 52, was named in a federal class-action lawsuit on allegations of federal securities fraud, insider trading, and breach of fiduciary duty, according to court documents, per Business Insider.

The Chief Financial Officer was found dead on Friday after falling from the 18th floor of a New York City apartment building.

Arnal was cited in the suit along with activist investor and GameStop chairman Ryan Cohen, who the lawsuit claims collaborated with the CFO in a “fraudulent scheme to artificially inflate the price of Bed Bath & Beyond’s publicly traded stock.”

On August 18, both Arnal and Ryan Cohen sold shares of the company, with Arnal selling more than 42,000 shares for an estimated $1 million, and Cohen selling the entirety of his 9.8% stake through his firm, RC Ventures, causing share prices to plunge.

The lawsuit claims Cohen — who is also the co-founder of Chewy and chairman of GameStop — approached the CFO about his “pump and dump” scheme in March 2022, and “convinced Gustavo that their plan would be a mutually beneficial one.”

BBBY CFO & GameStop Chairman allegedly collude in pump and dump scheme

Ryan Cohen BBBY Insider Trading Lawsuit Claims.
Ryan Cohen BBBY insider trading lawsuit claims.

“Under this arrangement, defendants would profit handsomely from the rise in price and could coordinate their selling of shares to optimize their returns,” the lawsuit states. 

Arnal allegedly worked with JPMorgan, which is listed as a defendant in the suit on claims the bank “aided and abetted” the plan by “enabling Cohen to use JPM’s accounts to effectuate such transactions and otherwise launder the proceeds of their criminal conduct.”

Ryan Cohen made a profit of $68.1 million from his stake in Bed Bath & Beyond.

Bed Bath & Beyond was one of the so called ‘meme stocks’ that was halted last year alongside AMC Entertainment stock and GameStop after retail investors had aimed to squeeze short sellers from their positions.

Investors and shareholders are still figuring out how to process this tragic death.

AMC Nears High Demand Levels: What to Watch For

AMC Bullish
Market News: AMC TA indicates bullish momentum is near

AMC Entertainment stock is nearing a major demand level as share prices continue to decline.

The stock closed at $8.58 on Thursday after hitting a low of $8.30 on the intraday chart.

Volume on Thursday fell below the average of 46.3 million by 20.9 million.

But AMC is treading a fine line as the high $8 and low $9 levels have proven in the past to be a strong support for the stock.

Breaking below $8 could send the price to test a high demand level around $6.50 per share.

In this article I’m going to explain what shareholders should look out for in the next coming weeks.

Let’s get started!

Momentum levels are on the brink of reversing

If you’ve watched one of the latest videos on my channel regarding the TTM Squeeze indicator, then you know all about the massive impact this indicator is signaling.

Watch this quick clip on YouTube – Subscribe for more content and updates.

The TTM squeeze indicator is an indicator that signals heavy buying or selling momentum.

When AMC began to run up before ultimately hitting its all-time high of $72 per share, we see this indicator was already predicting heavy bullish momentum.

TTM Squeeze indicator - AMC Stock
TTM Squeeze indicator – AMC stock

The TTM Squeeze indicator is the chart at the very bottom whereas the top is AMC’s price action.

Dark green shrinking candles indicate the stock is on the brink of losing momentum and often times serves as a sell indicator.

We see that as the dark green momentum candles shrunk, AMC’s price action is followed by a massive crash.

Now let’s take a look at what happened when the TTM Squeeze indicator switched from bullish momentum to bearish momentum.

As the indicator transitioned from bullish momentum and began to show signs of bearish momentum, we can see AMC had a drastic drop in share price.

The TTM Squeeze indicator predicts big moves ahead.

A new transition is in play

So where is AMC today?

AMC is actually in a period where bearish momentum has begun to die out, leaving room for buyers to takeover.

It makes sense as AMC’s share price is hovering just above key levels of support, which have also been known as high demand levels.

Below you’ll see the TTM Squeeze indicator shows bearish momentum has completely gone out on the weekly timeframe.

The transition from red to green momentum candles will signify big moves lie ahead for AMC Entertainment stock.

But we’ll need one or two of these weekly timeframe momentum candles to serve as confirmations.

If these candles break through, then it’s a clear indication AMC is on track for some massive price action.

What’s on the other side of the coin?

If AMC fails to establish this momentum through buying pressure, short sellers will be able to take over once again.

AMC’s share price would further plunge, and that would be an article for another time.

But for now, the transition towards bullish momentum seems much more likely.

AMC Shares Could Fall More Before Massive Breakout

AMC stock news today
Market News: Technical analysis shows AMC is on the brink of a breakout

A massive AMC breakout could be underway as technical analysis shows a ‘bullish wedge’ pattern forming.

The pattern may also be referred to as a ‘descending broadening wedge’ which I’ll explain in more detail down below.

Today I’ll be going over some technical analysis for AMC and walk you through the levels to keep an eye out for.

By the end of this article, you will know my analysis on approximately how low AMC may go before a bounce and breakout.

And also, proof and indication massive price action is inevitable in the coming weeks.

This is exciting.

Breaking down AMC’s levels

AMC has been setting itself up for an incredibly bullish run over the past 20 months ever since retail investors first began purchasing the stock in January of 2021.

The battle between buyers and sellers has created what’s known as a ‘descending broadening wedge’ over the long run.

This means retail investors never truly left despite what mainstream media has attempted to portray.

But when looking at the technical analysis of the pattern, we can see a massive rebound could be underway.

Retail investors will have confirmation once price hits a major level of support followed by bullish price action, indicating the start of a reversal.

How low will AMC go before a reversal?

AMC has a very strong level of support around the high $8 to low $9 range but we may even see the stock price drop as low as $6.50.

The next major retest price level is around $19.70 where we will meet a big resistance zone at $28.30, respectively.

If AMC is able to break this level, the movie theatre chain stock will retest $35.20.

Breaking $40 is the key to greater momentum beyond previous share prices.

If you’re not familiar with Trey from Trey’s Trades, he posted AMC’s technical analysis chart pattern and compared it to this descending broadening wedge pattern.

These indications tend to be extremely bullish and break upwards most of the time.

It’s very possible we see AMC breakout in the coming weeks or months.

It’s important to note that technical analysis only allows traders to identify the possible movement of a particular security.

AMC stock hit a low of $8.85 during pre-market hours on Monday and began to trend upwards during the trading day.

5 minute timeframe AMC stock
5-mintue timeframe – AMC stock

We’ll need to keep an eye out on AMC’s levels to identify whether this is the reversal from a descending wedge pattern, or whether there is still room for AMC to fall before a massive breakout.

Now I want to switch it over to the weekly timeframe and show you why big price action is actually inevitable.

On the verge of transitioning from ‘Sell’ to ‘Buy Momentum’

If you’ve watched my 3-part video series on day trading, you know that one indicator I use is the TTM Squeeze indicator.

This indicator measures buyer vs seller momentum and is a strong confirmation bias signal pointing towards big and upcoming price action.

AMC Technical Analysis

We can see that the TTM Squeeze indicator showed bullish momentum when AMC spiked to its all-time high back in June of 2021.

We then begin to see a drop in bullish momentum (green) and transition to a bearish momentum (red) indicating a big move about to happen on the downside.

Well now, the weekly timeframe is showing a possible transition from bearish momentum to bullish momentum is about to take place.

And when it does, you can bet it will confirm the descending broadening wedge pattern where a massive break may set a new all-time high for AMC Entertainment.

This is bullish news.

Short Sellers Target AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE)

AMC Preferred Equity APE
Market News: Short sellers aim at AMC’s newly acquired foundation, APE

Short sellers are targeting AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE), shorting both the companies’ emergency fund, and shareholders’ equity.

APE’s short interest has officially surpassed AMC’s short interest, now reportedly 30.10% via Ortex Data.

During the run to $27 we saw AMC’s SI tumble to 17% signifying released short seller pressure.

However, today we see short sellers have opened new positions, raising AMC’s short interest to 21.17% and creating bearish momentum for the stock’s share price.

Well, the same thing is happening to APE.

Short sellers have targeted AMC’s Preferred Equity hoping to make some cash during a potential meltdown.

But will it be that easy?

After all, there is a big demand for both these stocks – and with enough momentum; well, it could just create two short squeezes.

Let’s discuss it below.

Volume cools leading to the weekend

AMC and APE had big volume at the beginning of the week when AMC’s Preferred Equity debuted on Monday.

In fact, APE has now set a higher average volume than AMC sitting at 71.5 million.

That’s 22.5 million more in average volume than AMC’s.

The excitement over the new ticker has retail investors invested heavily.

But others are quickly trying to kill off any momentum created by the retail scene.

This morning ticker symbol APE rose to 100 in utilization indicating short sellers have now gone into a full blown out short selling spree.

But AMC and APE aren’t the only tickers whose volume or share price cooled down leading towards the weekend.

The entire market played in bears’ favor this Friday.

The SPY fell -2.81%, while NASDAQ fell -2.74%.

SPY has a level of support around $400 and if the market continues to downtrend and breaks this level, it’s very likely we see its next major level of support at $390.

But the market was heavily oversold which means it’s possible we begin to see a nice bounce up to $417-$420.

AMC and APE closed with 35.7 million and 13.6 million in volume respectively on Friday.

Will AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) go up?

Will APE stock go up?
Will APE go up?

AMC and APE currently have approximately the same market cap of 4.7 billion each – due to the split.

The company was able to join the Russell 1,000 in June of 2022 when it managed to meet the $7.3 billion criteria after reaching $7.5 billion before the cutoff time in May.

When AMC reached its all-time high of $72 per share in June of 2021, the world’s largest movie theatre chain grew its market cap to an astonishing $28.44 billion.

AMC Market Cap June 2021
AMC Market Cap June 2021 – Source

AMC’s market cap increased as the value of its share price increased.

How did this happen?

Well, millions of investors began purchasing the stock like crazy – volume was reaching +500 million, +700 million, and +900 million during single trading days.

Once institutions saw there was heavy momentum happening on retail’s end, they began to jump in as well.

In order for AMC or APE to reach all-time high levels, the market cap will have to increase.

Because as soon as momentum picks up again, institutions combined with short sellers buying back their shares will further fuel AMC or APE’s market cap.

Will AMC and APE skyrocket?

This will depend on how valuable the company can become, no matter how fast or how slow it achieves this process.

Why is APE being shorted more than AMC?

According to the reported short interest data provided by Ortex, APE is currently being shorted more than AMC stock.

AMC Entertainment designed APE as a means to raise capital for a rainy day.

The company has access to a fraction of shareholders’ equity should they need to pay off debt or make a worthy investment in another business venture.

APE is a tool that allows AMC Entertainment to not only stay afloat in case of another catastrophic event, but it provides the theatre chain with opportunity to grow and progress.

Short sellers are targeting this massive foundation in hopes of crippling the century old company.

Things didn’t quite work out in short sellers’ favor last year when big bets were being placed against AMC during their bankruptcy announcements.

But retail investors were able to arm the CEO with billions to resuscitate the company, burning those who prophesized the doom of the cinema experience.

Now it seems short sellers are pursuing a vendetta against retail investors and the company.

Big Volume in AMC Shows Investors Aren’t Leaving

AMC Entertainment Stock FrankNez
Market News: High volume in AMC Entertainment stock shows retail isn’t leaving

AMC Entertainment stock might have dropped in share price, but the volume shows investors aren’t leaving.

In fact, there’s been a lot of FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) occurring where retail investors are either being advised to sell AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) by brokers or being advised to sell AMC stock altogether by mainstream media.

While both might be quite alarming, investors seem to be holding down the fort for the movie theatre chain.

And if you’re puzzled by what may lie ahead for AMC then this article will provide you with some clarity.

Let’s get started!

The theatre chain has gained a loyal following

AMC Entertainment’s volume remains healthy despite the uncertainty in both the market and company during these misinformed times.

The movie theatre chain has received little to no accolades for not only surviving the challenge of the pandemic lockdowns, but for an incredible and speedy recovery during the retail movement.

The company has managed to pay off a ton of debt, acquire several new successful locations across the country, and beat earnings every quarter since 2021.

AMC Entertainment also purchased a huge stake in gold and silver mining company Hycroft, instantly raising $295 million in just two weeks.

Yet CEO and Chairman Adam Aron is ridiculed for doing what no one else in history has done, communicating with shareholders to save a century old company from the grips of Wall Street market manipulators.

But the truth is Adam Aron is a sharp businessman and has an incredible skill for raising capital out of thin air.

He recently proposed AMC’s Preferred Equity, or $APE.

APE allows the company to have access to a fraction of shareholder’s capital in AMC stock by dividing the stock’s value into two separate securities.

While AMC Entertainment might not be able to dilute more AMC shares unless approved by shareholders, the company has access to do so with APE, raising a large sum of capital at any given moment.

It’s a genius move on behalf of the company and investors are happy to contribute to any possible catalyst that may potentially squeeze short sellers.

Retail investors continue to buy AMC stock

AMC stock
Retail investors continue to buy AMC stock

On Wednesday the movie theatre chain closed with its average of 49 million in volume.

The previous trading days consisted of trading at the average volume or twice its average volume, reaching more than 100 million.

AMC’s high volume shows that despite falling share prices, there’s high demand for the movie theatre stock.

On social media, ‘apes’ continue to raise awareness of market injustices and lack of proper institutional regulation.

SEC Chairman Gary Gensler said on Twitter, “regulators are looking to bring greater transparency into short selling”, a practice that market makers and hedge funds have overleveraged to suppress stocks such as AMC, GameStop, and many more from reflecting their true demand in the market.

Gary Gensler said in February during a Bloomberg exclusive that 90%-95% of retail’s orders are not processed through the lit exchange such as the NYSE.

But retail investors are making a ruckus, exposing conflicts of interest in the finance sector and demanding change.

For decades now the voice of reason has fallen on deaf ears, even Forbes is calling out for Gensler’s resignation.

Investors relay that only another lobbied Chairman will replace him – signifying it makes no difference.

Today, shareholders are looking to create a squeeze in both AMC and APE.

And with enough momentum, it’s impossible to not recreate what occurred in June of 2021.

Where is AMC Entertainment Headed Next Week?

Market News: will AMC go up next week on Monday?
Market News: Will AMC go up next week on Monday?

Big changes are happening next week for AMC Entertainment.

Shareholders are going to be receiving AMC’s Preferred Equity, or APE as a dividend starting on Monday.

The stock closed at $18.02 on Friday after being up more than 7 times pandemic levels just a little over a week ago.

AMC’s share price has since cooled off from its rally up to $26 but retail investors are convinced market makers are pushing the stock down.

Regardless, shareholders are optimistically anticipating some bullish momentum.

Here is what we can expect from AMC Entertainment stock next week.

AMC to distribute APE stock

AMC APE Stock Dividend
AMC APE Stock Dividend

On Monday, August 22nd, AMC shareholders will be receiving an exact amount of APE stock equivalent to the amount of AMC shares they hold.

APE will trade for half the price of AMC’s share price at the close of AMC on Friday, which means shareholders can expect AMC and APE to trade approximately around $9 per share each, respectively.

Market conditions will determine the price of both securities moving forward based on supply and demand of course.

But this means both assets will be on a heavy discount.

While APE stock provides AMC Entertainment with capital, some investors see the security as a collectible – part of the movement against Wall Street corruption.

There’s no doubt shareholders will be purchasing both AMC and APE stock next week but if institutional buyers get involved, it could mean heavy price action.

While institutions might not be into APE as much as ‘apes’ are, APE could prove to be an incentive for institutional buyers to buy AMC at a bargain.

APE is already going to improve AMC’s fundamentals drastically since it’s ultimately a pool of capital for the company to access at any moment.

AMC Entertainment stock might attract investors who see this power move as a genius strategy.

Is momentum guaranteed next week?

Momentum and buying pressure are never guaranteed in the market.

Investor sentiment will dictate how much buying pressure feeds both AMC and APE stock next week.

It’s all about interest, and majority of AMC shareholders seem to be interested in adding to their positions.

Shareholders have been buying AMC stock prior to the distribution of the dividend to receive more APE shares.

More than 513 million APE will be distributed, essentially initiating a share count.

Retail investors betting on an AMC short squeeze are determined APE could be the catalyst that will expose synthetic shares in the market and trigger AMC to squeeze past its previous all-time high.

And while AMC does have the potential to squeeze based on its high short interest data, only time will tell if APE truly is the catalyst for what could be one of the most incredible plays in the history of the stock market.

AMC technical analysis

AMC Entertainment stock is hovering just above a massive level of support around the $17-$18 range again.

This means that AMC has the potential to bounce from this level of support and retest rejection levels around $27 per share.

AMC Technical Analysis - Franknez.com
AMC Technical Analysis – Franknez.com

Breaking $27.50 could set AMC on a course to the unknown where it may surpass last year’s all-time high of $72 based on how high the demand for the stock is.

As of now, what we can expect next week for AMC Entertainment is a coin toss.

AMC’s share price will be lower with the issuance of APE stock which means shareholders will have to lift AMC back to these trend lines.

Momentum has always been AMC’s catalyst though, and I’m confident that with enough buying pressure, retail investors will see a bounce back in the coming days.

But I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section down below.

Will GameStop See a Massive Short Squeeze in 2022?

GameStop Short Squeeze
GameStop GME stock – is GameStop Squeezable?

Just when we thought GameStop’s short squeeze was over we begin to see GME gain some momentum.

GameStop has been the heart of the wallstreetbets movement and continues to have a strong sentimental hold on retail investors and gamers alike.

The retail investors who missed GameStop’s first squeeze either bought AMC shares or bought GME while it was still high.

Today, the stock has undergone a 4-1 split.

So, will GameStop see a massive short squeeze again?

Here’s what we know.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on stocks, crypto, entrepreneurship, and trending investing topics.

Lets get started!

And if you’re not investing in the stock market and would like to learn how to buy GameStop stock or know where to buy GameStop stock, read my beginners guide on how to start here.

GME stock

GameStop closed at $40.53 on Wednesday, August 17th.

Trading volume is currently sitting at 9.3 million with 12.6 million now being GameStop’s average volume.

Understanding the short-seller

GameStop has taken the entire internet and finance world by a storm. What is happening nowadays.

Retail investors over at r/wallstreetbets have opened Pandora’s Box on short-sellers and hedge fund institutions.

Short-sellers are investors who short the stock.

Shorting a stock is the process by which sellers essentially bet on the stock price to drop.

They borrow stocks at a higher cost and sell the stock low, profiting the difference.

Short Selling GameStop Stock
How short selling works

We’ve seen GameStop drop down and consolidate at $40 after its gamma squeeze peaked close to $500 per share back in January.

And it recently went through a 4-1 stock split.

As of August 17th, it is trading at $40.53.

The stock has made a massive climb after some serious consolidation. It looks like GameStop is prepping itself for another gamma squeeze.

Could we finally see that GME squeeze everyone’s been waiting for?! I think its time.

See, GameStop’s short interest is still rather high and not all short sellers closed their positions back in January.

This means the stock still has loads of room to go bonkers.

What is a short-ladder attack?

short-ladder attack is a strategy performed by short-sellers where they bid on the stock at a significantly lower sell price and purchase it from one another.

Thus, driving the share price lower.

How do you spot a short-ladder attack?

When the stock knows nothing but gains, but something keeps pushing it down until over and over again, that’s when you’ll know.

Why GameStop has potential for a second short squeeze

  1. Short-sellers didn’t learn their lesson from the first time. GameStop stock is still being heavily shorted.
  2. With GameStop becoming a technology company, its value has not only significantly gone up but it now has even more potential to keep driving its momentum.
  3. Retail investors have a strong conviction towards GameStop investment. This means they’re not willing to sell the stock which in turn creates a supply and demand scenario with short-sellers who have to close their positions.

This number of course changes every day and can be expected to rise as hedge funds continue to short GameStop stock.

However, the short borrow fee rate isn’t a catalyst for GME to squeeze.

I’m excited for my subcommunity that holds both GME and AMC stock because both are about to skyrocket past Pluto.

Important Advisory

It is important to note that I am not a licensed financial advisor.

Like many traders and self taught investors, all speculation is based on educated estimations based on highly reliable analysis, patterns, and documented news charts.

Volume is key to a second GameStop short squeeze

Just like AMC, GameStop will need to see a continuous runup in share volume.

When retail investors continue to buy and hold GameStop stock, short-sellers shorting the stock eventually have to buy back the stock.

This demand and supply scenario results in various gamma squeezes.

The gains we’ve seen with GameStop have been a series of gamma squeezes, or incremental gains.

Usually what follows after gamma squeezes is a short squeeze if it has enough volume.

The volume of shares depends on how much retail investors are purchasing GameStop stock or selling it.

How Soon Will A Second GameStop Short Squeeze Happen?

There is so much volatility occurring in the stock market at the moment.

Such volatility is usually a sign of an upcoming short squeeze as we saw back in January.

Not only are retail investors experiencing a lot of volatility, but GameStop stock seems to be in bullish territory which is great for volume.

FOMO (fear of missing out) continues to bring in new retail investors which is a great driving factor to the stocks volume.

Saving GameStop

Retail investors now have the power to save any company they wish to save.

Now it’s only a matter of time for GameStop to step up and raise capital so that they can innovate and provide more value back.

GameStop is currently looking for ways to operate more efficiently.

While the Reddit community was able to keep them from going bankrupt, the company as a whole will need to continue kicking butt.

Here’s what’s been going on with GameStop recently.

Current GameStop news

is GameStop still squeezable? – GameStop Short Squeeze
  • GameStop introduces Matt Furlong as the new CEO of the company.
  • GME shares are still up nearly 1100% this year-to-date with the company’s valuation at $15 billion.
  • Bullish GameStop options are still currently being heavily traded

Prior to GameStop, Matt Furlong worked at Amazon in Australia overseeing the growth of operations.

He also worked in brand and marketing for Procter & Gamble years before.

The skills to grow operations and to properly brand and market will benefit GameStop immensely.

What can retail investors do to tackle shorting?

If retail investors want to counter GameStop’s stock price from plummeting, they’ll have to continue to hold and buy the stock.

This short squeeze play will require patience.

Important advisory

If you hold a position in GameStop, it’s important that you ask yourself what your reason for holding is.

Does your DD provide you with the confidence to stick to it longer if need be?

If so, stick to your convictions and trust the process.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get in on GameStop before it gamma squeezed so I took a position in AMC instead.

Taking this position has been one of the best financial decisions I’ve ever made.

I would take a position in GameStop if it was more affordable.

Regardless, I like the stock and I love the community even more.

Will GameStop finally short squeeze?

I think GameStop is preparing itself to put short sellers out of their misery.

The stock has been havoc to hedge funds and we can tell they’re giving out primarily due to this massive breakthrough we’re seeing now.

And although I personally don’t hold GME stock, I have a lot of awesome memories at GameStop which I would actually like to share with you at the end of this article.

Now let’s talk about a little justice.

A major hedge fund that was attacking GameStop has now been reported to lose a significant amount of money.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin capital suffers 49% loss 1st quarter of 2021

Ladies and gentlemen this is massive. Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both GameStop and AMC stock.

Melvin Capital suffered a 49% loss its first quarter of 2021, via. Markets Insider.

Here’s why this matters:

  • Not only are shorts losing money every day but huge hedge funds are bleeding
  • This is a huge win for retail investors
  • Unless shorts close their positions, hedge funds will continue to suffer
  • Interest rates can skyrocket for short sellers enabling them to close their positions

Now the hedge fund is closing its doors this June 2022 after several losses.

We’ve see GameStop’s short borrow fee decrease but I wouldn’t be surprised if it begins moving back up very soon.

Hedge funds have been trying to obliterate our beloved GameStop from the face of the planet.

Something about them losing a lot of money feels like justice.

Believe me, I’m 100% for making money.

The ethical way.

You should be supporting beloved companies, not targeting them just because you see an opportunity to kick someone when they’re down.

Karma is about to get a lot worse for hedge funds betting against both GameStop and AMC.

Will GameStop stock go up again?

As long as the stock continues to be shorted and held, GameStop can expect a series of gamma squeezes to continue pushing the stock up.

This will inevitably lead to the ultimate short squeeze.

Fundamentals can also drive GameStop’s stock price up.

The company will have to run efficiently by being able to meet projected goals.

Although this is not a fundamental play, mainstream media still has some influence over this.

Short sellers continue to face devastating losses from shorting GameStop.

Hedge funds are about to burn their second hand after playing with fire again.

It was my first time inside an actual video game store. T

he coolest thing was seeing how many different games and accessories they had for all the consoles at the time.

Some of the most awesome memories at GameStop was seeing that brand new game on display.

For me, it was Guitar Hero.
