Will AMC squeeze in 2022?

The Fool thinks you should sell your stock, but retail investors aren’t budging.

Mainstream media who serve hedge funds in a conflict of interest have been egging retail investors to not buy the stock all of 2021.

If you listened to The Fool who told you not to buy AMC when its share price was low, then you would have missed out on a trade that went as high as 3000% in gains!

While the runup to $72 per share might have caused AMC’s short interest to drop to 14% from 20%, AMC’s short interest has now gone up to 21%.

Ladies and gentlemen, AMC stock has plenty of room for growth in 2022.

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog that provides retail investors with market news with integrity. Today we’re discussing AMC’s short interest data to determine whether it will squeeze in 2022.

Let’s dive right into it!

If you haven’t subscribed to the newsletter, be sure to do so that way you don’t miss out on new information.

Mainstream media wants retail to lose

It’s no secret the financial platforms who have been attacking AMC stock are tied together.

Wall Street Journal’s parent company is News Corp., who also owns Barrons, MarketWatch, and DOW Jones Newswire.

Well, there’s a relationship between Citadel Securities’ CEO Ken Griffin and News Corp (he owns stock).

This creates conflict of interest because of the influence these people in power have who are shorting AMC stock.

Citadel Securities is one of the top 10 financial institutions shorting AMC stock.

So, let’s look at the data that shows whether or not AMC will squeeze in 2022.

AMC Short Interest Data (2022)

AMC Short Interest Data 2022

AMC’s short interest is currently at 18.19%.

The short interest tells us the percentage of a stocks float that is being shorted (shares have been borrowed and not yet closed).

Because AMC is heavily shorted at nearly 19%, this is a short squeeze play in 2022.

An 18% short interest is equivalent to approximately 144.97 million shares on loan (shares that have been borrowed and have not yet been closed).

When AMC’s short interest dropped from 20% to 14% (6 points), the share price rose to $72 per share.

New short positions have brought AMC’s short interest up to 18% again meaning there are many shorts that have yet to be squeezed from their positions.

Whether AMC’s stock price is up or down, the short interest tells us a large portion of AMC’s float continues to be shorted.

The short interest is the main recipe for a short squeeze.

AMC has a high enough short interest to squeeze shorts from their positions in 2022.

Sitting at 18% short interest, it’s more than enough to get the price up well into the high hundreds of dollars per share.

Whether regulators will investigate naked shares, FTDs, and other forms of counterfeit shares for hedge funds to cover is another topic.

AMC will need momentum if it’s to see another massive runup in share price.

Furthermore, hedge funds will lead their customers into losses for the second year in a row if retail investors continue to buy and hold the stock in 2022.

AMC Entertainment stock has plenty of room for growth and mainstream media doesn’t want you to know it.

Who is AMC stock for?

Popcorn

AMC stock is for the retail investors who are willing to take a little risk to multiply their investment through a short squeeze play.

A short squeeze play is a long commitment with incredible upside.

If you’re lucky enough to get involved in the ape community you’ll find yourself fighting for a fair and transparent market, where your voice means everything.

Reasons why AMC wont squeeze in 2022..

I’ve always been transparent with the community.

There are many of you who got in when I first began publishing the data early last year and are sitting on unrealized gains today.

And although AMC could have squeezed during various occasions last year, there are still things that can hinder AMC from squeezing this year.

Here’s a list of things that will refrain AMC from squeezing shorts from their positions:

  1. Retail investors start selling AMC stock
  2. Retail investors stop buying AMC stock
  3. New buyers aren’t introduced to the stock or short interest data
  4. Number of day-traders increase
  5. Regulators don’t enforce margin calls / protect retail from market manipulation

The AMC community has not had a problem holding or buying the stock.

One of the biggest problems the community faces today is regulators not protecting retail investors against the predatorial strategies from hedge funds.

The community has always been a beacon for change.

Apes will need to voice market concerns to elevate awareness.

Market regulation in 2022

Market regulation 2022 SEC

AMC stock had multiple chances to squeeze in 2021, however, hedge funds always found a loophole that would prevent them from reporting information, or trading stock in the lit exchange.

Market manipulation continues to be a threat to every retail investor in the market.

AMC Entertainment was on the brink of extinction, it was about to go bankrupt.

Hedge funds took this opportunity to overleverage their short positions in the stock, betting it would close forever.

Once retail investors got in and saved the company, the community uncovered a number of market manipulation tactics that allowed hedge funds to prevent the stock’s share price from soaring.

The fight for a fair market continues in 2022.

For the ape community, this is more than just a short squeeze play.

It’s about freedom.

Retail investors are very excited about the data that’s been collected for months now.

Will we see an AMC short squeeze while we continue to ride this bear?

And if so, how soon?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog providing you with content on stocks, crypto, and market news. Today we’re discussing AMC Entertainment stock.

Lets get started!

How soon will we see an AMC short squeeze?

Retail investors all want to know.

Is it this week?

Will it be next week?

Or, are we looking at a longer game here?

Here’s what we know.

Key Highlights

  • AMC closed at $12.78 on July 5th. The stock continues to be heavily shorted. AMC Entertainment is set up for a short squeeze.
  • Shareholders continue to buy and hold the stock.
  • AMC’s short interest data shows us the stock has the perfect setup for a short squeeze.

Some of you reading this article might have been holding since January now.

Kuddos to you for holding the line.

If you’re a new retail investor getting in on AMC be sure to thank the seasoned apes when you get a chance.

Below is a series of documented facts and positive news that all influence AMC’s potential towards a short squeeze.

One thing is certain, it’s inevitable.

AMC stock news and highlights

FOX Business reported AMC to have a strong chance of a short squeeze.

Coming from a big news platform it certainly brings the stock sentiment up for most retail investors.

This is the type of news retail investors need to keep an eye out for.

AMC Short Squeeze News Fox Business
Strong chance of a short squeeze – Fox Business AMC

AMC is still currently the most shorted stock in the market.

President and CEO of AMC Entertainment Adam Aron, announced AMC will reopen all 13 AMC theaters in New York City as of March 5th, 2021.

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open across the United States with many selling out.

Check out what Adam Aron had to say (via. Investor Relations AMC)

“Since reopening our first theatres with AMC Safe & Clean in August, AMC has welcomed back nearly 10 million moviegoers nationwide without a single reported case of COVID-19 transmission among moviegoers at our theatres. We look forward to welcoming back our New York City guests to the big seats, big sounds and big screens that are only possible at a movie theatre.”

Adam aron, President and CEO of AMC Entertainment

For those who thought AMC was a dead company, think again.

The company is now generating big revenue since it’s reopening.

Melvin Capital closing in June

Melvin Capital AMC Stock
Melvin Capital Hedge Fund – AMC – AMC Stocktwits

This is huge.

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GME stock.

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

Today, the hedge fund is scheduled to close in June of 2022.

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
  • An AMC short squeeze might be closer than we think

Here’s what retail investors can do:

  1. Continue to hold your positions, it’s free
  2. Buy the dips to counter any short attacks
  3. Share articles on social platforms that can provide value to the community
  4. Keep a close eye on the stock to not miss the squeeze

I’m going to discuss a little more on the short borrow fee that continues to increase for these hedge funds shorting the stock.

This is going to be a massive component to a short squeeze.

Positive news for AMC Entertainment (archive 2021)

Adam Aron gives positive news on AMC Entertainment – Archive 2021
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash
  • 90% of AMC theaters in the United States are now open with New York and Los Angeles finally reopening
  • Vaccinations and policies are making movie theaters safe
  • New movie titles are guaranteed to increase sales revenues
  • CEO and President Adam Aron expresses an optimistic future for AMC Entertainment
  • AMC Entertainment has implemented a Safe & Clean program under the advisement from Harvard University’s prestigious School of Public health as well as well as the No. 1 U.S. cleaning brand, The Clorox Company. This means movie goers can now return at ease knowing a proper sanitation program has been put in place.

Hedge fund affiliate partners such as MarketWatch, The Fool, and other finance website have been trying to redirect the public from investing in this stock.

That’s primarily because hedge funds are losing millions by the day.

A short squeeze could even put them out of business.

This is why it’s important for me to spread the positive news surrounding AMC.

I don’t believe in the manipulation of the media and I will continue to update these articles as more great news unfolds.

Is AMC Shorted?

AMC’s current short interest is around 18%.

As of 7/5, we’re seeing 150,000 shares have been made available to borrow (for now), via Stonk-O-Tracker.

AMC’s short shares available will be updated here so be sure to bookmark this page.

AMC Short Shares Available to borrow

While shorts might have the capability to short AMC stock, this is only temporary.

They will run out of borrowed shares and eventually have to cover.

There are finally investigations going around regarding naked shorting.

Yeah.. I sense a grand mother of all short squeezes. #GMOASS

BREAKING: Anchorage Capital closes after betting against AMC stock

What does this mean for the AMC shareholder?

Expect to see gains after shorts have run out of borrowed shares to use.

Hedge funds and short sellers alike have dug a deeper hole for themselves.

What this means for the AMC shareholder is a squeeze bigger than anything the market has ever seen before.

I am personally doubling down.

Not only is bankruptcy off the table (via. Los Angeles Times), but AMC movie theaters are now about to begin reopening in larger parts of the United States.

Which of course now introduces revenue.

AMC Entertainment Quarter Earnings History (2021)

Below are AMC’s quarter earnings for 2021, the year the ape movement began.

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

When will an AMC short squeeze happen?

It’s really hard to tell.

Even experts can’t identify an exact date and time.

However, the possibility of an AMC short squeeze is certainly possible given that it is still the most shorted stock in the market and the stocks volume continues to rise.

We also now have more data then ever before that indicate a massive short squeeze is almost certain to happen.

Especially now that the SEC has announced some crackdown on shorting.

With Melvin Capital and other hedge funds losing money, it’s only a matter of time before the short borrow fee continues to skyrocket and shorts have to close their positions.

It’s tendie time!

Analyst AMC predictions

With that being said, Trey’s Trades predicts a short squeeze is now certainly guaranteed. Trey has been a leader in the AMC community and deserves a spot on this page.

More data points towards the stock reaching $1000+ per share.

See what stock analyst Trey has to say.

AMC short squeeze – AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Stocktwits

The real questions is how can retail investors make this AMC short squeeze happen?

We know that short-sellers eventually have to cover their spots. This means that they will eventually have to buy AMC stock at the current share price.

  1. If retail investors continue to drive the share price up by buying the dip and holding their positions, short-sellers will have no other option than to buy from the retail investor at a higher share price.

2. Retail investors will also need to buy the climbs in order to show a demand for the stock. This doesn’t have to be huge buys, rather incremental to validate the current share price.

This play essentially creates a supply and demand scenario between retail investors and short-sellers. The results? A short squeeze.

Hedge funds are doing everything they can to prevent a short squeeze

How are they doing this?

  • By promoting false information online (we’re certain you’ve seen it)
  • Through strategies such as short-ladder attacks in the market
  • And, by restricting certain brokerage accounts from allowing its retail investors to purchase or buy shorted stocks (Robing hood)

This is what retail investors can do to fight corruption

  • Share content that presents facts (blog posts, analysis videos, etc.)
  • Continue to educate yourself and make investment decisions based on your personal analysis
  • Protect the community and one another
  • Follow your instincts
Read: How Hedge Funds Manipulate The Stock Market

What will a short squeeze look like?

We’ll begin to see a trend similar to that of GME (Gamestop). AMC will enter a bullish territory before hitting an ‘abnormal’ peak in which AMC would have ‘squoze’.

What will an AMC short squeeze look like?

It seems we’ve already hit the bottom.

AMC continues to be heavily shorted through dark pools and other market manipulation tactics.

This price level can be seen as a buying opportunity for retail investors looking to squeeze shorts out of their positions.

We’ve seen resistant levels around $14-$16 recently which is a great push from $5.

We’re now sitting at $12.78 per share.

An AMC short squeeze will certainly make headlines.

Expect to see various gains prior to any sort of major peak as well as volatility.

Retail investors will have to hold their positions through upcoming gains if they want to see AMC short squeeze.

But most importantly, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the first sight of gains if they are to see bigger and more massive gains.

Gamma squeeze vs Short squeeze

Don’t confuse gains and momentum with a short squeeze.

Here’s the difference between a gamma squeeze and a short squeeze:

A gamma squeeze are momentum gains. These usually occur from call options closing in the pocket resulting in heavy buys or purchases in the market.

A short squeeze is vigorous and can spike with no warning.

This is where you see 100% gains in a matter of seconds and minutes.

A short squeeze can even reach 1000% and 10,000% gains.

AMC Short Squeeze Stock Prediction

AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Stocktwits

New retail investors are wondering whether $1k, $10k, or even $100k per share is even possible.

Gabe from ReviewDork does some math that’s going to leave you with an open mind.

AMC stock price predictions range from $1,000 to $100k+.

Will AMC reach peaks like GME?

AMC has been fortunate enough to receive more publicity and hype than GME did, at least recently.

The volume will speak for itself and retail investors will just have to wait to find out.

We’ve seen that abnormal gains are naturally part of a short squeeze.

Volkswagen rose up to nearly $1,000 when it squeezed back in 2008 due to a similar strategy produced by car manufacturer Porsche.

Analysts are predicting AMC can even go above the $1K mark if retail investors and institutions alike continue to buy and hold their positions.

Wouldn’t this be something. If you’re holding 1,000 shares and AMC spikes to $1K per share, you my friend have made 1 million dollars!

I strongly suggest using a reputable broker such as Vanguard or Fidelity oppose to phone apps like Robinhood.

Simply because the broker colluded with market maker Citadel to halt the buying of ‘meme stocks’.

Read: Codes to see if your phone has been hacked

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

Absolutely not, at least not yet.

AMC Entertainment is still heavily shorted.

You will have to decide whether its current share price is worth it if trades at $100, $500, or even $1,000+.

AMC Entertainment stock has not even started squeezing yet.

Redditors have touched base on this topic and advise anything below $100 is a buy.

I’ve been personally buying the stock when it dips.

This allows me to pick up more shares at a discount.

If you’re a beginner, I recommend buying 5-10 shares of AMC stock.

This amount will give you a feel of the market.

Not only is it affordable, but if the market is red you won’t see much loss on paper.

Where was AMC trading at before the pandemic?

AMC was actually trading between $30-$35 back in the booming party economy of 16′!

AMC stock started to decline as their debt increased and hedge funds began to heavily short it.

Short sellers could have covered back in August when AMC’s stock price was trading at $30 levels or even today.

However, AMC gets really uncomfortable under $30 per share.

Related: Are Institutions Preparing to Close Short Positions in AMC?

What if a short squeeze doesn’t happen?

If an AMC short squeeze doesn’t occur, AMC stock price will still go up allowing shareholders to make at least some sort of profit.

With AMC theaters now open, it’s inevitable that the company will begin to see bigger sales revenue every time a new title is released.

I update this post when new titles make the headlines regarding earnings.

Keep in mind that AMC’s share price during the booming party economy of 16′ was roughly around $30 per share.

If a short squeeze doesn’t happen, fundamentals will continue to bring the stock up as more investors are buying the stock.

However, a short squeeze not happening is very unlikely as AMC is currently the most shorted stock in the market and most held stock, beating both Apple (AAPL) and Tesla (TSLA), via. NASDAQ.

Majority of the float is also held by retail investors and short sellers are going to be forced to close their positions very soon, more on that coming up.

As Mark Cuban bluntly put it, keep holding.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

why hasn't AMC squeezed yet
AMC Stock Forecast – AMC Squeeze – AMC Stocktwits

AMC hasn’t squeezed yet primarily to two main reasons.

  1. We need more volume to drive the stock price action up
  2. Shorts need to close their positions

Volume really just comes to more and more retail investors as well as institutions getting in on AMC stock.

Regarding shorts covering, retail investors need to squeeze them out of their positions by holding their positions and helping increase AMC’s short borrow fee.

You can keep tabs on AMC’s short borrow fee as it changes every day via. Ortex, or Fintel.

AMC short borrow fee

As of 7/5 AMC’s short borrow fee rate is 14.70%.

Read: When do shorts have to cover their position? (AMC)

Aside from this, Wanda Group had caused a little bit of disruption for retail investors by profiting on the first sight of gains.

This turmoil was only short-term but is a reason why we’ve seen some selloff in the market a few weeks ago.

However, Adam Aron has brought awareness in an interview with Trey’s Trades that this selloff from Wanda is simply policy from China.

Retail investors should not be concerned.

Is AMC Ever Going To Squeeze?

All the numbers point towards the right direction for a massive short squeeze.

Shorts and hedge funds continue to lose money every day.

The interest is growing at an alarming rate and AMC’s current utilization is at 100%.

The lives of these retail investors are about to completely change.

Say goodbye to your old world.

AMC continues to be one of retail investors favorite stocks.

And yet again sources such as The Fool and other hedge fund partners are trying to steer the public from investing in this specific stock.

Well, just how high can AMC stock price skyrocket up to?

AMC stock price closed at $13.53 on July 1st. The share volume remains healthy as AMC is primed to take off.

We have broken the $30 and $40 levels of consolidation but have now come down. How soon will AMC rip?

Most of the market has been on sale and AMC has been no exception to that until now.

But AMC wants to keep climbing.

The stock continues to consolidate as short sellers find loopholes to short the stock.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – the blog where you can digest content on stocks, crypto, entrepreneurship, and market news.

Lets get started.

As some of you know, I update this article frequently. I update it with the intraday price action as well as any information pertaining to the stocks performance.

A lot of the information on here will be left untouched as it is a means to archive a lot of the information from throughout the year.

What do we know about AMC stock price?

AMC’s stock price continues to be volatile although we’ve seen the stock is scared of single digit share price numbers.

No matter how many times this stock is attacked by short sellers, it keeps correcting itself upwards.

AMC stock price bull market

Key highlights

  1. We’re seeing AMC stock price enter bearish territory due to an array of market abnormalities right now.
  2. ‘W’ shape formations in the past have indicated bullish territory.
  3. Retail investors and large institutions alike, like the stock. Buyers include Vanguard, Charles Schwab, Wells Fargo, and BlackRock.
  4. What causes AMC stock price to rise during ‘power hour’ is how many more shares are being purchased before trading hours close. As retail investors continue to buy the dip and hold, we’re going to continue to see this trend of perpetual gains into the new year.
  5. The stock price is still relatively low enough for majority of people to buy, but hurry before it’s too late.

See what CEO and President of AMC entertainment has to say to CNBC news about AMC Entertainment reopening and the Reddit movement.

As of today, all AMC movie theaters are now open 4/14
  • AMC Entertainment has raised more than 2.2 billion dollars in cash

AMC’s Short Borrow Fee

AMC short borrow fee interest

AMC’s short borrow fee as of 7/4 is: 20.20% via. Stonk-O-Tracker, this is different from the short interest of 18%.

The longer shorts-sellers hold their positions means the higher the borrow fee may increase. This is great news for retail investors.

Shorts eventually have to cover their positions and when they do, AMC’s stock price action will continue to rise, inevitably creating a short squeeze.

Why AMC’s short borrow fee matters

While it costs the retail investor nothing to hold their position in AMC, it costs shorts interest.

Shorts are more willing to hold their positions if the short borrow fee is low so they’re losing money every day they hold.

Remember, shorts still think they can bankrupt a company that is no longer going bankrupt.. I know right?

As hedge funds like Melvin Capital lose money, the short borrow fee will go up to make up for some loses.

As the interest goes up, shorts will naturally cover.

If they don’t, they will bleed bad.

With the short borrow fee being so high at the moment, it has retail investors speculating a short squeeze will start soon.

Melvin Capital suffered 49% loss 1st quarter

Melvin Capital AMC stock
Hedge Fund Melvin Capital – AMC Entertainment

Melvin Capital is a hedge fund that has been shorting both AMC and GameStop.

Well it turns out holding has paid off one way.

The company was down almost half percent their first quarter of 2021!

These are people who want to put your favorite businesses out of business. Ladies and gentlemen, the good guys always win.

If retail investors keep holding, institutions are going to raise the short borrow fee.

Unless hedge funds don’t start closing their short positions, they will cease to exist.

Or at least cease to run operations until they open a new firm from scratch.

But who will trust them? Their clients are losing money.

Breaking: Hedge Fund Melvin Capital Is Shutting Down in June

Hedge funds are a sinking ship

Hedge funds are losing money shorting AMC stock

Cramer said, anyone shorting AMC and GameStop are going to lose. And he’s right.

Retail investors are holding until shorts are squeezed out of their positions.

Shorts can either:

  1. Take the loses and close their positions right now where the stock price is around $13.
  2. Or, get squeezed out of their positions at a high interest rate above $13, resulting in even bigger losses.

Ladies and gentlemen, shorts could have closed at $5 last year.

With that being said, short sellers have lost more than a billion dollars this second quarter according to Ortex data.

Things are not looking so good for them.

And it’s about to get a whole lot worse as AMC stock continues to surge.

How will this affect AMC stock price?

I can imagine shorts and hedge funds alike must be furious.

The little guy causing a disruption, what!?!

My personal take is retail investors are going to continue to see foul play.

You’re going to experience this from bogus headlines.

They’ll usually try to steer the public from buying AMC stock to keep the volume and hype down.

Not sure if hedge funds know this yet but you do know documentaries of what’s taking place are in the works right?

Independent filmmakers such as the Mulligan Brothers will be covering this story from the retail investors perspective and rumor has it Netflix will be writing as well.

Expect AMC stock price to rise and continue to be shorted.

We will see volatility with shorts attacking the price action.

They do this by trading synthetic shares at low bids.

AMC Gamma squeeze before short squeeze

AMC Entertainment continues to be one of the most shorted stocks in the market.

Because AMC is an extremely high shorted stock, analysts continue to demonstrate their conviction towards an AMC short squeeze.

The key here is for retail investors to hold their positions as they see some momentum beginning to build. #diamondhands

Key: If investors want to see AMC squeeze, they’ll have to refrain from selling at the sight of early profits.

AMC stock predictions (analyst)

AMC prediction from Fidelity TRADER PRO

Trey’s Trades walks us through the positive moves AMC has been making from an analysts perspective.

Trey presents his audience with transparent information and has been a key player in the analytics world for ticker symbol AMC.

Although this video is an earlier video, Trey’s videos are packed with relevant information that still apply to where the stock is today.

r/wallstreet bets and Discord

Members over at r/wallstreetbets and Discord anticipate AMC stock price can skyrocket as high as $1,000 with enough momentum.

The number of phantom shares hedge funds have to cover is astronomical which is why the community is calling this the mother of all short squeezes (MOASS).

AMC stock price wallstreetbets

By holding shares in AMC, retail investors are setting up a supply and demand scenario where short-sellers will eventually need to buy from them.

This in turn can drive the stock up as high as the retail investor chooses, theoretically speaking.

Large institutions such as Vanguard, Wells Fargo, BMO Harris, BlackRock, Fidelity and many more are buying AMC stock while it’s still low (via. CNN Business).

Take that for what it is.

Whether that number comes to fruition or not, retail investors will have to continue to hold and to add to their positions in order to skyrocket AMC’s share price.

We’re seeing more and more retail investors join the fight against short-sellers.

Short-sellers are the investors betting on AMC Entertainment to lose.

Can AMC reach $100K or $500K per share?

There’s been a lot of speculation that due to the possible number of outstanding synthetics could be in the billions, AMC may potentially squeeze past 6-figures.

Personally, I’m open to this concept. Shouldn’t we all be? I just recently found ReviewDork on YouTube. Gabe talks about this possibility and walks us through some math. Check him out.

Is it too late to get in on AMC stock?

If you’re looking to take on a position in AMC you might want to get on the train before it takes off for good.

If you’re looking to get in for the short squeeze play, AMC stock is currently on bargain. This stock is still heavily shorted!

Retail investors are teaming up together to see their visions come to fruition.

And they’re not waiting on anyone.

What we do know is that the current share price is still affordable for most people.

Why hasn’t AMC squeezed yet?

AMC stock consolidation

AMC hasn’t squeezed for two primary reasons.

  1. The volume isn’t all there yet. The volume needs to be quite high. Trey’s Trades referenced 500+ million being an outstanding number.
  2. Shorts are holding – they need to close their positions if retail investors are to squeeze them.

It’s not illegal for shorts to hold long on their positions; however, they lose money every day they hold.

Fortunately for retail investors it’s free to hold.

What will AMC’s stock price be when it squeezes?

AMC

AMC’s stock price can really be anywhere.

It really depends on when shorts close their positions.

Short could have covered when they drove the price back down to $8.

It would have been wise considering the stock continues to correct itself in an upward trend and has now set itself up for the perfect squeeze.

If shorts continue to play the long game, AMC’s stock price could potentially be higher when it squeezes.

In this case, shorts would have lost a lot more money due to accumulating and rising short borrow fees.

Can AMC squeeze after hours?

A question some people might have is whether or not AMC could potentially squeeze after hours.

AMC can certainly squeeze after hours when the market closes.

In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if it did this.

AMC’s stock price would continue to surge as retail investors watch immobile.

For one, shorts could decide to cover before the market closes in attempts to throw one final blow to retail investors.

This would give the price action to potentially come back down after hours.

Should you worry?

I wouldn’t worry if this was the case.

Although squeezes can last anywhere between minutes to hours, they can certainly last days too.

Volkswagen’s squeeze back in 2008 lasted approximately four days. GameStop’s lasted even longer.

Here’s how you can prepare for a short squeeze

A squeeze can technically happen at any time.

The short interest doesn’t necessarily have to be high.

Shorts could choose to close their positions with little loss opposed to massive losses.

  1. If you’re in a position to keep an open tab on your browser that is updated AMC’s stock price in real-time then I would suggest doing so.
  2. Own an Apple watch? Keep the stock in your background. This is a very convenient way to keeping tabs on the stocks performance.
  3. Join discords where you can be notified when something massive is going on.

When a squeeze happens you’ll know. Just don’t get a short squeeze confused with gamma squeezes.

Gamma squeezes are usually small spikes resulting from extremely bullish actions coming together at once. Otherwise known as relatively healthy gains of built momentum.

A short squeeze will be something more sudden and disruptive. You’ll know when this goes to the moon. AMC’s stock price will break through the charts and leave earths atmosphere.

What should I do when AMC squeezes?

AMC stock price short squeeze

This is completely up to you! Congrats for holding and seeing this through.

You can choose to sell your entire position and collect your profits or you can continue to hold and find out whether the squeeze continues to go up.

Unfortunately, we can’t time the spike.

For all we know, the initial squeeze might not be the potential price action.

This makes it difficult to calculate the best time to sell.

You could sell a portion of position and wait to see how AMC’s stock price moves.

We created a thread for you to share how you will use the money when AMC squeezes as a means to spread positivity and share with the community.

What is a circuit breaker halt?

A circuit breaker is usually a rule in the market that essentially pauses or halts trading for 5-15 minutes.

A common circuit breaker type is the Volatility Pause.

This helps smooth volatility in the market and prevent flash crashes.

It forces traders to take a 5 minute timeout, research the stock, news, etc.

Often times if a stock is spiking up and is halted, it will reopen higher.

Inversely, a stock selling off will often open lower.

Why this is worth mentioning

This is worth mentioning because it’s important for our readers and the ape community to be aware of possible halts as AMC’s stock price becomes more volatile.

If you happen to experience a circuit breaker halt do not panic.

It’s a policy to make sure trading goes as smooth as possible.

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.

Note: Before roaring kitty blew up as the analyst for GME, only a handful of people followed him through and reaped the rewards.

We’re seeing another analyst obtain a similar following with AMC.

Take that for what it is.

Short Sellers Are Now Paying More to Short AMC Stock

Short AMC Stock
The cost to short AMC stock goes up

AMC’s short borrow fee is rising again and short sellers are now paying more to short AMC stock.

This is the fee short sellers pay to borrow and short the stock.

It fell as low as 0.30% earlier this year but has now risen to 18.60%.

Although the short borrow fee is still relatively low, the progression could lead to more impactful losses.

Last year hedge funds lost billions betting against the world’s largest movie theatre chain.

Overleveraged positions with high short borrow fee rates only multiplied losses.

Rising short borrow fees could incentivize short sellers to completely ditch the play and close their short positions as shorting becomes more expensive.

Let’s break it down together.

AMC’s short borrow fee increases

AMC Short Borrow Fee

AMC’s short borrow fee rate has steadily been increasing as the markets have tanked.

It comes as no surprise that the fee to short AMC stock would increase during this liquidity crisis.

The SPY officially hit bear market territory two weeks ago, but the market bounced rather quickly, trading just above bear market levels.

AMC continues to be one of the heaviest shorted stocks in the market.

It wiped billions of dollars from hedge funds shorting it last year.

And with a high short interest of 22.52%, AMC has more than enough juice to squeeze shorts from their positions.

But AMC’s short borrow fee rate and short interest percentage aren’t the only metrics increasing.

Pressure is escalating as AMC’s shares on loan reach an all-time high.

Pressure escalates as AMC’s shares on loan skyrocket

AMC shares on loan

AMC’s current shares on loan have reached 185 million.

These shares on loan eventually have to be returned to the lender by buying back the stock in the lit market (NYSE).

The massive buying pressure is going to create a high demand for the stock.

As the demand for the security goes up, so does the cost to buy it (the value of the security).

When AMC surged to $72 per share in June, it had roughly just over 100 million shares on loan and a short interest of 24% before falling to 20%, then 14%.

Today, AMC’s shares on loan have hit 191 million with a high short interest of 22.52%.

AMC’s Short Interest Data Updated Daily Here

Short sellers owe their lenders more now than they did when AMC shot up to $72 last June.

No matter what the catalyst is, AMC is inevitably going to surge again.

Will AMC’s increasing borrow fee rate force shorts to close positions?

AMC short borrow fee rate

AMC’s increasing short borrow fee rate may certainly incentivize short sellers to close their short positions.

The stock is slowly becoming harder to short and the cost to borrow it might prove to not be worth risking significant losses as the market adjusts itself for a reversal.

At some point, it’s going to be time to start betting long.

As you can tell, short sellers have the biggest risk here.

One simple bull rally can eliminate short sellers’ portfolios.

And with the SPY showing significant strength in the $400 level, one can assume the markets have potentially found a bottom.

The SPY momentarily hit official bear market levels last week but has managed to trade just above it.

A significant break upwards could bring the entire markets back up, hurting short sellers.

Here’s How Shareholders Can Trigger an AMC Short Squeeze

AMC Short Squeeze
What will trigger an AMC Short Squeeze?

For over a year now, shareholders have looked at catalysts that would trigger an AMC short squeeze.

But not just any short squeeze, the mother of all short squeezes.

Also known as, MOASS.

While AMC managed to scare a few short sellers off last year when the stock price rose to $72 per share, new investors are wondering when the next major runup will occur.

For this, we will have to look at what caused AMC to surge last year.

Let’s discuss it.

Looking back at 2021

AMC short squeeze
What will trigger an AMC short squeeze?

It’s important to look back at history to predict the future.

But above all, is an AMC short squeeze even possible?

The answer is, of course it is.

We know this by looking at AMC’s short interest data which tells us how much of AMC’s float is being shorted.

And just like last year, AMC has a high short interest percentage of over 22%.

Some of you might remember AMC dropped from 23% to 20%, and then to 14% when the share price rose from $14 per share to its all-time high of $72 per share.

AMC still has this potential.

Now simply imagine AMC’s short interest drops from 22% to 10%, or even 5%.

Just how high can AMC’s share price go?

That’s the million-dollar question.

But the short interest doesn’t matter if a short squeeze isn’t triggered.

For months and months, retail investors hoped for a specific catalyst that would bring riches to fruition.

The truth is, it’s always been up to retail.

What will cause AMC to squeeze?

Now that we have an understanding of what AMC’s short interest means and how it plays a key role in a short squeeze, here is how shareholders can trigger it.

Heavy buying pressure

It’s no secret heavy buying pressure triggered AMC to surge in price last year.

Big daily volume between 300,000 and 700,000+ forced the share price to move up creating panic for short sellers to close their positions.

This resulted in a domino effect further fueling AMC’s share price to rise as more shorts followed suit.

While many held unrealized losses, some were quick to cut their losses.

The ape community has bought and held AMC Entertainment stock for over a year now, but it’s fair to say majority of retail investors have simply been holding.

The proof is in the daily volume, now trading below AMC’s average of 52 million.

Liquidity in the market tends to go down during a bear market, contrary to a bull market.

It’s the nature of the market – stocks drop and majority of investors buy less, stock go up and majority of investors buy more.

I used to speak heavy on volume several months before AMC ran to $72 per share.

The truth is the ape community is accountable for triggering an AMC short squeeze.

Not the SEC, not a law, but investors.

You can’t take volume with a grain of salt

AMC Stock squeeze

Unlike many catalysts that have surfaced for over a year now, you cannot take retail volume with a grain of salt.

Because it is what it is.

Some investors argue that volume does not matter due to how much of it is rerouted outside the lit exchange.

But it mattered when AMC ran up to $72 per share, so why wouldn’t it matter now?

Heavy volume triggered AMC to run last year when millions of retail investors bought the stock en masse.

And the same applies today.

AMC soared to $34 per share in March where its average volume had doubled during the run prior to getting halted.

GameStop claimed $199 per share where its average volume had also doubled that same trading day.

If retail investors are to squeeze shorts from their positions, they’ll have to play in offense and remember why AMC ran in the first place.

Adam Aron Says There Are No Synthetic AMC Shares

Synthetic AMC Shares
Market News: AMC CEO says there is no reliable info on synthetic AMC shares

Adam Aron just took it to Twitter announcing they (AMC) have seen no reliable information on synthetic AMC shares.

The CEO said “inbound tweets ask over and over for a share count”.

He then said, “some of you believe the count is much higher. As I’ve said before, we’ve seen no reliable info on so-called synthetic or fake shares.”

Retail investors have been adamant about getting a proper share count due to the ongoing and excessive naked short selling of AMC Entertainment stock.

A share count could expose the overleveraged amount of ‘synthetic AMC shares’ and force institutions to take accountability by closing them – triggering a short squeeze.

There are many opinions going around in the community after the CEO’s announcement.

Let’s discuss it.

Shorting in AMC never left

AMC Short Interest Ortex

Before we get into AMC’s synthetic shares, it’s important to note that AMC has accumulated more short sellers than ever before.

AMC has a current short interest of 22.90%, and more than 195 million shares on loan.

When AMC reached an all-time high of $72 per share, its short interest had dropped from 23% to 20%, then to 16%.

AMC’s short interest has been rising ever since that drop, giving the stock plenty of room to squeeze shorts from their positions.

So, shorts never really left, despite mainstream media calling the short squeeze play dead.

The conflict of interest between the media and hedge funds is something retail investors should all be aware about.

But most of you already know this.

Is Adam Aron really oblivious to the amount of shorting that has taken place in AMC Entertainment stock?

Or is he not allowed to speak on the matter due to the position he’s in as the CEO of the company?

Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne did, despite the ridicule and investigations he received.

The only difference is Adam Aron has an army behind him willing to support a fair market for all participants.

Similar to Gary Gensler, it is in my opinion that Adam Aron may simply be maintaining the status quo.

But I’m curious to learn what you think.

Proof of synthetic AMC shares

Adam Aron says they have not seen any reliable information on synthetic AMC shares.

But most of the proof are in the FTDs that accumulate every month when there aren’t enough shares to meet contractual obligation.

There have been more than 16.5 million AMC FTDs this year through May according to research.

Naked short sales and selling an asset without borrowing it first are two of the leading causes for failures to deliver.

These naked shares are the shares the CEO isn’t counting – or in other terms, what shareholders want him to investigate.

He stated on Twitter AMC knows only of 516.8 million shares.

And while shareholders know this legal count as well, it’s the ‘illegal’ synthetic AMC shares the community want brought to light.

But it seems the CEO isn’t interested in combating a corrupt market.

It seems he much rather remain focused on the business aspect, which too is understandable.

However, not meeting shareholder demands could have serious repercussions in the future.

Is Adam Aron risking AMC’s future by not tackling the problems shareholders are facing in the market?

I’d love to know what you think.

Redbox stock has been having an incredible rally despite the current market situation.

The stock is up more than 430% on the monthly chart.

Retail investors want to know, will Redbox keep going up?

Redbox Stock outperforms the market

The stock market had one of the worst trading days in history today.

SPY stock was down almost 4% on Monday and the NASDAQ almost 5%.

Seeing the market today seemed unnatural – catastrophic almost.

But Redbox stock outperformed the market.

It closed today’s trading day with 55.3 million in trading volume from its average of 18.9 million.

Redbox has been exploding in the past month due to the massive surge of retail investors jumping in on this new ‘meme stock’.

It earns its ‘meme stock’ title due to Redditors discovering its incredibly high short interest, and short squeeze possibility.

Mainstream media is saying today’s rally was due to Redbox squeezing, but in order for us to track its short squeeze we’ll have to take a close look at the short interest data.

Will Redbox stock squeeze?

will Redbox stock squeeze?
Will Redbox stock squeeze?

Redbox stock currently has a short interest of 225.59%.

This is massive.

But mainstream finance platforms say RDBX stock squeezed today.

We will have to keep an eye out on this short interest percentage to determine whether shorts indeed closed some positions.

You will know shorts began to buy back shares if the short interest drops significantly.

Otherwise, the price movement could have simply been from big buying pressure.

AMC Entertainment stock saw gains up to 3,000% last year when some shorts began to close their positions.

GameStop saw gains upwards to 1,500%.

Redbox stock has only seen some 430% gains so far and has a much higher short interest than what AMC and GameStop had.

Will RDBX stock squeeze?

Just like we saw with AMC and GameStop, heavy buying pressure all at once may trigger short sellers to close, initiating a short squeeze.

How high will Redbox stock go?

Reddit: how high will Redbox stock go?
Reddit: How high will Redbox stock go?

Redbox has a high probability of reaching all-time high share prices.

The stock was hard to knock down despite the stock market heavily getting splattered.

While majority of the stock market was pulled down, Redbox stock finished the day green.

It’s always difficult to determine how high a heavily shorted stock such as Redbox will go.

This is primarily due to how many factors affect its share price.

The incredible thing is that it’s also costing short sellers a lot to short this stock.

RDBX has a cost to borrow of 636.42.

There’s no reason why anyone in the market should be able to short the stock this much.

It’s as if institutions did not learn from shorting both AMC and GameStop.

The short interest data in this stock is so high, there’s no doubt shorts will be getting burned on this one again.

I published an article on RDBX stock almost two weeks ago before it began to rally even higher.

Market News: AMC’s shares on loan skyrocket

AMC’s shares on loan continue to hit an all-time high.

Shareholders are patiently wait for the built-up pressure to send AMC’s share price to a new all-time high this year.

Last year the stock reached an incredible $72 per share, squeezing only a very small percentage of short sellers.

Today, there are more short sellers playing a risky bet than there were last year.

The data in this article is the same data that showed us AMC would surge when it did to $20 in January, and $72 in June.

History is about to repeat itself

AMC Short Squeeze 2022

What caused AMC Entertainment stock to surge to $20 per share on January of last year?

Better yet, what caused it to skyrocket to $72 per share last June?

It’s not so much a matter of what, but why?

Why did AMC have these runups last year?

The answer is because of AMC’s short interest.

Like GameStop, retail investors noticed AMC had a high short interest.

A high short interest meant retail had the chance to squeeze shorts from their positions by driving the stock price up through big buying pressure.

Shorts make their profit as stocks go down, so if the price of a stock was driven up, their profits would eventually turn into losses.

So, some short sellers began to close positions and leave the risky bet.

But many stayed behind, holding, waiting for AMC and GameStop to drop to pandemic levels and make their money back.

The market has experienced nothing buy bear rallies all year.

And I think short sellers are going to take advantage of the market by finally closing their positions.

But let’s go over the data first.

Why is AMC going to go up again?

AMC shares on loan

AMC stock is going to go up again because the shares on loan are at an all-time high.

These shares on loan eventually have to be returned to the lender by buying back the stock in the lit market (NYSE).

The massive buying pressure is going to create a high demand for the stock.

As the demand for the security goes up, so does the cost to buy it (the value of the security).

When AMC surged to $72 per share in June, it had roughly just over 100 million shares on loan and a short interest of 24% before falling to 20%, then 14%.

Today, AMC’s shares on loan have hit 181.85 million with a high short interest of 23.48%.

AMC’s Short Interest Data Updated Daily Here

Short sellers owe their lenders more now than they did when AMC shot up to $72 last June.

No matter what the catalyst is, AMC is inevitably going to surge again.

And you can bet it’s going to be a lot higher than its previous all-time high of $72 per share.

Here’s what’s happening in June this year

Executive order 14032

Something big is happening in June.

Like all news, we should take this with a grain of salt – but it’s exciting, nonetheless.

Executive order 14032 was responsible for prohibiting the use of Chinese securities as collateral last year during the times AMC ran up to $20 per share and $72 per share.

This propped up margin calls because of the large exposure our financial institutions have to Chinese securities.

When these securities were no longer accepted as collateral on January 27th, 2021, AMC stock surged.

The order was shortly amended (moved) to May 27th, 2021, where AMC stock had its second surge, reaching an all-time high of $72 per share only a few days after.

Executive order 14032 is to go into effect on June 2nd.

So, it’s very possible we could see something big happen the first week of June.

The difference this time is that over 70 Chinese securities are being affected, compared to last year’s 30.

A bigger collateral haircut means more liquidity will be needed to keep up with margin requirements.

This is why we’re seeing this massive selloff in the market today.

Institutions need liquidity to keep up with margin requirements.

And they’re in a tough situation because as share prices keep dropping, DTCC B16845-22 keeps raising margins.

Collateral haircut, no liquidity, margin calls

It’s a recipe for disaster.

What’s going to end up happening is financial institutions are eventually going to have to close their short positions in heavily shorted stock.

This could be their last resort for liquidity, if profitable.

Otherwise, it’s possible we begin to see hedge funds cut their losses and shut down as we’ve seen with Melvin Capital and Anchorage.

Hedge funds are in a whole other world of pain right now.

Ken Griffin said retail investors wiped out the pension plans of teachers after Gabe Plotkin announced Melvin Capital was shutting down.

I wonder what he will say next.

As always, take this information with a grain of salt.

A lot is happening in the market and only time will tell where AMC and GameStop go next.

Stock Market News: NSCC-2022-003 has been approved

NSCC-2022-003 has been APPROVED.

The filing replaced NSCC-2021-010 which was withdrawn on March 25th of 2022.

The rule aims at providing a more stable environment for market participants and I’m going to break it all down below.

Let’s get started.

NSCC-2022-003 SFT clearing service

NSCC-2022-003 would implement the SFT clearing service (securities financing transactions).

This means the NSCC would act as a third party to clear FTDs (failure-to-delivers) from various institutions.

The NSCC would also collect margin from both the lender and borrower to mitigate any risk.

Here the NSCC essentially acts as a referee, preventing overleveraging, naked shorting, and FTDs in the market.

Predatorial short selling strategies could potentially be eliminated due to this filter.

The NSCC believes it can reduce market disruption from fire sales by liquidating positions in small batches.

I’ve stated in recent articles and on my channel that a squeeze in AMC and GameStop will likely occur in sequences.

A ‘controlled squeeze’ so to speak to avoid systemic risk in the market.

It’s very possible NSCC-2022-003 was created to unwind this mess in a manner that would prevent the stock market from collapsing.

Does the rule help hedge funds?

Yes, but it also helps retail investors.

While NSCC-2022-003 provides a safety net for overleveraged institutions, it will also create more balance in the market for retail investors.

The NSCC is requiring all SFT members to provide a $250,000 margin minimum amount.

And with DTCC B16845 already raising margin requirements, I think it’s fair to say hedge funds are being put on a leash.

Investors have been asking me, what happens if a hedge fund defaults?

Will they be held accountable for their short positions?

Assuming a hedge fund becomes an SFT member, under NSCC-2022-003, the NSCC would take all responsibility and be obligated to meet all settlements.

Although the proposal requires a $250,000 margin minimum, the NSCC is requiring members to hold sufficient liquidity to cover the largest settlement obligation.

In other words, every short position will be obligated to get closed.

Is a New AMC Stock All-Time High Coming Soon?

AMC stock all time high
Market News: Is AMC stock about to hit a new all-time high soon?

AMC stock’s last time all-time high reached $72 per share.

The stock had surged more than 3,000% last year when retail investors bought and held the stock, squeezing some shorts from their positions.

As a result, Citadel and others lost billions of dollars, and Robinhood lost all trust along the way.

Mainstream media continues to attack the retail community and stock in short and distort campaigns – where media and short sellers collude to drive the price of a stock even lower.

So, while AMC Entertainment has now paved a path to recovery, short sellers have not left.

And the data that stood out when AMC surged to $20 per share in January and $72 per share in June, points to another massive runup.

Is a new AMC stock all-time high underway?

Let’s discuss it.

AMC’s share on loan reaches an all-time high

AMC Shares on loan

When AMC stock’s all-time high reached $72 per share, it had roughly 102 million shares out on loan.

These are the number of shares being loaned to short AMC stock.

But short sellers did not stop shorting the world’s largest movie theatre chain.

No – instead they kept shorting it.

Today, AMC’s shares on loan have reached an ATH of almost 180 million.

This means short sellers have more shares on loan that need to be returned than they did when AMC’s all-time high hit $72.

These shares on loan eventually have to be returned back to the lender, and the only way to return them back is by purchasing the stock no matter the share price.

Short sellers have sold all these shares high as AMC’s share price has dropped for months, with many new positions holding unrealized profits.

But they’ll eventually have to close their positions, returning the borrowed shares back to the lender.

And when they do, AMC will run like it did last year.

AMC to the moon

AMC to the moon – the concept of AMC reaching massive heights as closing short positions skyrocket the share price.

But just how high will AMC stock’s new all-time high go?

Speculation has always depicted AMC reaching thousands of dollars per share due to the incredible amount of synthetics conjured up to short the company stock.

Could this be an ongoing, but controlled short squeeze?

TA (technical analysis) shows AMC’s next all-time high can reach upwards of nearly $300 per share.

Is it possible that each year regulators are dismantling this time bomb in order to prevent massive market disruption?

It’s an interesting idea, yet a highly probable scenario given just how overleveraged financial institutions such as hedge funds are on these plays.

If AMC stock is to reach extremely high numbers per share, I can only expect it will happen in increments, rather than in one blow.

I’d love to know what you think.

How soon will AMC stock go up again?

The entire stock market has been on a freefall, and AMC Entertainment stock is no exception.

Despite its incredible negative beta, institutions have been able to suppress the stock from moving upwards.

I’ve stated in several articles and videos that the market situation is following the SPY and NASDAQ very closely.

It’s the way for those in control to keep the market together.

AMC began to move up in late March reaching more than $34 per share before it was regretfully halted along with GameStop.

The market has been keeping these ‘meme stocks’ in check during this incredulous bear market.

Despite the market manipulation, not all hope is lost.

Margin calls are looming.

And institutions are about to lose an incredible amount of collateral due to executive order 14032.

Lack of collateral will result in the same margin calls that triggered AMC to run in January and June of last year.

Only this year, the collateral haircut is much greater, consisting of 70+ companies rather than 30.

We will see how this plays out.

What is your prediction for AMC in the coming weeks?
