Ladies and gentlemen, we’re seeing more of these headlines on mainstream media. The SEC and other powerful leaders are looking into Citadel Securities, calling their business model “politically motivated“.
The crackdown is real. I read what both Gary Gensler’s colleagues and people of opposite views have had to say about the SEC’s chairman.
And they both said the same thing… He’s unpredictable, and someone not to underestimate.
I guess retail investors will have to find out for ourselves won’t we?
Welcome to Franknez.com – massive bullish news coming to you today. Apes, we’re moving in the right direction. Will this crackdown be the catalyst to a short squeeze?
Let’s get started!
Fox Business Live Citadel Video
GOP insiders are saying Biden, the SEC, and Warren have all launched a political vendetta against Citadel Securities.
Dems have been working towards implementing serious consequences for Citadel Securities after the Archegos incident.
It comes as no surprise that the party is pressing on.
It’s also important that we see beyond the political parties. Retail investors are fighting for a fair market.
Our community is so diverse that it in the end it doesn’t matter whether the party fighting against market manipulation is republican or democratic.
We need regulators and people with power to impose serious consequences on the market maker.
After several months of voicing your thoughts about the injustice in the markets, Citadel Securities is finally getting the smackdown.
“There’s A Movement Afoot, To Take Down His Empire”
Charlie Gasparino has always been quick to defend hedge funds betting against ‘meme stocks’.
You might know Gasparino for trolling the AMC community on Twitter.
He argues that PFOF (payment for order flow) works and traders get to trade at no commission for it but fails to understand why retail investors want to remove this practice.
Retail investors don’t want Citadel Securities – who’s a hedge fund, market maker, and dark pool, to process their orders.
Watch the short video below.
Retail investors want to eliminate the market manipulation that’s been occurring due to the overleveraged power Citadel Securities has over the retail investor.
In short retail investors want to:
- Eliminating dark pool trading
- Get rid of PFOF
- Have regulators look into insider trading
- Expose and hold those accountable for the restrictions of buying meme stocks earlier this year
- Liquidate overleveraged hedge funds
Eliminating these threats from the market would allow both AMC and GameStop to naturally skyrocket based on the laws of supply and demand.
The end game? A massive short squeeze.
Here’s How Citadel Securities Has Abused Their Power In The Market
Citadel Securities is one of the top financial institutions shorting both AMC and GameStop.
And while shorting a stock may not be illegal, trading patterns from several technical analysts shows naked shorting has made itself present again after being deemed illegal due to the Great Recession of 2008.
Intraday trading does not align with the actual sentiment of retail investors.
Unprecedented short-ladder attacks from overleveraged borrowed shares have been a way to cheat in the game too.
Retail investors have every right to buy as much stock as they want.
Suppressing the stock’s price action through leverage from banks and other financial institutions to profit on the downside is the biggest manipulation to have been uncovered in the markets.
Dark Pool Trading Must Be Eliminated
AMC dark pool trading has been as high as 60% in the past few months and has traded higher other days.
This advantage allows hedge funds shorting the stock to drive the price down despite the massive buying pressure from retail investors.
These dark pools can mask the buying pressure from retail, allowing hedge funds to manipulate how the trade is recognized through its share price.
Gasparino fails to recognize that investors are fighting against this type of manipulation in the markets.
He fails to recognize that Citadel is able to process orders through their dark pool without having the incredible retail buying pressure move against them.
Betting against a fair market, and especially against these heavily shorted meme stocks is a sign of weakness.
Rather than covering their short positions, hedge funds, market makers, and the banks have all exposed themselves.
A few months ago I said that this wouldn’t get out of hand unless hedge funds allowed it to by not closing their short positions in AMC and GameStop.
I said it would only escalate and here we are! Everyone is looking at Citadel Securities’ Ken Griffin.
“Washington Is Aiming At Ken Griffin”
During the congressional hearing earlier this year, Citadel Securities CEO Ken Griffin was under intense scrutiny.
According to Gasparino, GOP sources are stating there’s a lot of insider talk about Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Gary Gensler going after Ken Griffin.
Citadel Securities processes almost half of all retail orders in the market.
The government is finally waking up to the excessive amount of power this market maker has.
If you’ve been reading FrankNez for quite some time now then you know how much I’ve preached the significance and power of your voice to make change happen.
Everything we’ve endured as a community is beginning to payoff.
Hedge Funds Face Short Sale Disclosure From The SEC
The SEC poses a threat to hedge funds through a rule that would enable them to receive short sale disclosure periodically.
The rule may go into effect as early as November. You can read more about it here.
Needless to say, there’s massive change happening in the markets whether we realize it or not.
This change has been happening over a period of 10 months now.
Market regulation that allows retail investors to participate in a fair market could very well be the catalyst for a short squeeze.
By eliminating suppressing forces in the market, we give AMC and GME stock an open runway to move up in a supply and demand play.
Massive buying pressure from retail could force short sellers to close their positions as the price begins to experience larger upswings again.
Apes will have to continue to fight for a fair market and hold the stock if we are to squeeze hedge funds from their positions.
