Serious question, do you guys really think the government/banks are going to let this GME thing happen?If this were to become a "name your price" situation (which it theoretically will be) then the banks would literally have to PRINT new money to cover all the losses and pay the people the hedgies owe money to.They're just not going to let this happen. They'll just completely shut this down/halt the market, freeze everyone's funds or do WHATEVER is necessary so that the hedgies win and we lose. At best they will compensate everyone with $50 or some shit.There's just no way they'll just admit they lost and give all their wealth to normal people like us. It simply cannot happen.
>>26988219They won’t for variety of reasons. Keep on gambling though and let me know how it works out for you
>>26988219they won't let us winthey will destroy civilization before concedingthey are planning somethingbe ready when it opens
>>26988219I think, they believe this is Melvin's loss. Melvin understands, this will crash the market. Because it will crash the market, Melvin will not go all in to stop it. More of a "fuck it, I'm bugging out with what I have left in rainy day."And the systemic risk, the market crashing shit. Nobody ever ever ever cares about that shit until after it happens.
In my opinion if it means that the whole thing comes crashing down (the whole economy) and they're able to do something about it (assuming it's legal of course) then I'm pretty sure they'll do something. But whatever it is remains to be seen.This is an unprecedented situation. We're witnessing an historic moment, btw. And this will probably be written into economy books.

>>26988219Banks just printing money to solve their problems? Nah bro I don't believe it that couldn't happen
>>26988613>This is an unprecedented situation. We're witnessing an historic moment, btw. And this will probably be written into economy books.I wish this were true but i feel as though everyone's just gonna forget and move on. It always happens.
>>26988828the inflation for this on top of the recent print frenzy will be insanewill we really be wealthy in the end?i doubt many of his own actual assets
>>26988917the attention span of normies isn't relevantthis will change finance foreverthis is like the tulip craze, or south sea company, black monday, ect. Everything has to be reevaluated
>>26988315Wrong faggot. You will sell for whatever price they choose to give you because you don't own shit; your broker does.
guys what if the market moons & everyone sells & it returns to normal... then we do it again when they try to short it again...
>>2698821950 bucks compensation to wiping it all out? anons have gambled upwards of 100k on this shit. its going to end in only 2 outcomes. The kikes pay up, or the streets will run red

>>26988917Use your gains to buy physical silver coins (maybe gold if you are rich, but silver is easier to trade).
>>26990660you need to lurk more anonyou don't belong
>>26988219explain to me, what is the current interest rate they have to pay on their shorts every day?how much money are they losing starting today ?how long can they keep their shorts open ?
>>26988219he think 70 billion will ruin the economy.
>>26988219It has to happen, or else they are openly admitting the system is rigged. If they do that then god help us...
>>26992297>If they do that then god help us...this is when the fun begins
All of this is going to be a big nothingburger come next week./biz/ had a massive fit not too long ago when corona started getting big and that turned out to be a massive over-reaction.I'm yet to be actually convinced that stock trading and whatever else this shit is called isn't just an autistic and overly complex hobby or an overblown game of Monopoly.
>>26989232this is why we're still so early into crypto and defi
>>26991989We literally have single standalone trillion dollar companies. Taking this thing's marketcap all the way up to 7 Trillion and each individual stock being worth around $100K literally wouldnt even require the money printers. It'd just be existing money changing hands. Printers wont even be needed unless we start talking craziness like each of the ~70 million individual stocks being worth like a hundred million dollars each.They can pay up, and not even get the printers involved. They just dont want to.
>>26988641>They can't because there are many players in this game, not just retailsThis, Blackrock is the largest institutional player in GME and they're just hodling. They're in on the squeeze as much as retail are. Melvin and Citadel are whales but there are big fucking sharks in the water
I don’t understand how it was this easy desu. If the information on shorts is public knowledge, then why would any institution want to short a stock this much?? As well, what was stopping another institution/groups of institutions from buying a shit ton of GME and doing the same thing?? I don’t see these guys being this stupid. It has to be a front
>>26995824hubrisempires have fallen because of this
>>26995824We were in a pandemic and GameStop really was dying. Hedgies gave into their greed amd started shorting non existent shares instead of thinking logically.
>BAILOUT>GET PAID>BAIL OUT LEADS TO INFLATION>INFLATION LEADS TO BITCOIN SOARING>GET PAID AGAIN>WINNING EVERY GOD DAMN DAY
So some of you legitimately think this is going to lead to a crash in the wider market? Can you elaborate as to why? I just don't see how that could happen.
>>26998145hedgies who need to cover their shorts will start liquidating their pmassive ositions in other stocks to do so, driving down the price of those stocks which could lead to global panic
>>26998145once you understand literally everything is connected, not just the economy, but every single aspect of civilization and the universe, things will start making sense
>>26998145I’m not really an economics guy, but financial institutions going bankrupt is not a good thing for the market at large. They may have to pull out of their boomer stocks in order to cover GME losses. As well, this whole thing smells like a bubble, which is never a good sign. Whenever normies get too excited about the stock market it’s usually a sign of mania. Giving everyone free money via stimulus, and the rapid acceleration of inflation doesn’t help at all either.Also there is just the possibility that the institutions can just crash the market for a profit and blame retail traders.If I’m being retarded someone let me know
>>26988219Not sellingIf they want a PR disaster, let them have it
Retard here, how big is the actual risk of GME stocks causing a semi-runaway chain of bankruptcies? How high up the financial chain does the legal responsibility go? For example, say Melvin goes bankrupt because they can't buy back the bank's GME shares. Are RH and all the brokers now legally responsible for buying back the shares their users bought from Melvin, and returning them to the bank instead? And if this bankrupts the brokers, does the responsibility then pass to the broker's financiers, and so on?
What are the chances that the hedge fund refuses to pay ever, one or two guys with no possessions to their name go to jail as responsible for that and no one gets the money?
>>26999292It goes all the way up to the Bogs. But Kikes won't let that happen, they will freeze/limit trading here and there, and wait it out until people get bored (no more than 2 weeks). Another option is making GME an offer they cannot refuse: privately issue shares to Melvin for $200, so they can cover the shorts, GME gets huge boost of liquid cash which is bullish so they will continue bussiness as usual.
>>26988219>It simply cannot happen.You sound like a loser IRL
>>26999787Or the bank can just tell the courts that they don't care about getting their shares back, I guess. That would drop the matter. I imagine the bank is more interested in keeping the financial system stable than selling some GME stocks on the market.
nobody's forcing you to buy/sell. you wanted to get involved this is the kikes world and they do as they please and millions are being redpilled.. nothing will change because of this
>>26998145Bro nearly every investment bank in the USA is at risk of being liquidated through Capital.
>>26988219Interesting point. However I decline to sell my stock.
>>26988641you sweet summer child....the rule of law died long ago
being discussed on radio 2 w/ Jeremy vine for all those bongs out there
>>26993571It wasn't an overreaction because it SHOULD have been a total collapse, the sole reason it wasn't was governments around the world printing insane amounts of money to keep the market alive. Playing Komm Susser Tod on a loop that day was fitting in light of this money printing alone, regardless of if the market itself stayed crashed.
Woke up to find all my securities missing from my trading accout. Nothing but my settled funds are showing up. WTF.
>>26988219Im still fucking holding
>>26988641>are we a democracyHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA
I can’t watch
>>26988917The media moves on and forgets, and tries to project this onto people.
*ting* *ting* *ting*ATTENTION MARKET MAKERSYes yes you're all so very clever and devious. But there is just one *little* problem with your plan.Listen closely...*ahem*I am NEVER, ever, EVER selling my fucking GME. Not a single one. Ever. Under no circumstances.Do you understand?
>>26992297The admitted that in 2008 and nothing bad happened to them.
