No reddit fags allowed.

Someone tell me in plain english, the answer to the following:

1. How the fuck do we know if they have closed their shorts?
2. If they haven't, when do they HAVE to close them by?

>> No.27418634

>1. How the fuck do we know if they have closed their shorts?

You can't, its not public info until the exchange releases it.

>2. If they haven't, when do they HAVE to close them by?

They never have to close the position, it costs them interest to keep the short, what the hedgies are prob doing in leveragin a ton of puts into april or later and just writing off the losses.

You can check on any website the short float and the ratio.
If you check to volume, you can see that nobody is selling just a hf kikes trading by 100 stocks in every second to manipulate the price.
GME volatility is going to increase as this goes on, because there will be less shares overall being traded to affect the price. So hold.
I don’t doubt we’ll see a drop to less than $100. Because ladder attacks at that point will be extremely effect due to extremely low volume.
A drop below $100 is actually exactly what we want. It’s bait to get the hedge funds to over extend themselves. Once we go below $100, volume will be so tiny that the subsequent wave of buyers buying the dip will launch the price to the sky

1. you cant
2. indefinitely. not every short is a option contract you brainlets

You dont know if anyone has closed their shorts. You dont know if there is shorts, you dont know how many, you dont know anything because these things arent private unless a fund decides to disclose this information to its partners. You have to go with contextual clues.
You'll see a lot less disclosing of funds and banking information going forward after this event.

There's no time limit to close shorts. If the lender asks you to return your shares then you have to, no questions asked. But if they dont ask for the fees back, its basically infinite time as long as your lender puts up with you. An indefinite amount of time.

Retard here, how was Melvin's over-leveraged short detected in the first place? I'm aware Burry was on to it last year, is this usually disclosed publicly or did Melvin fuck up?

tl;dr melvin is the best hedge fund and other funds copy what they do because they're just that good. They choose to make their investing portfolio public.
no one really actually cared, many funds are shorting many companies.

Melvin Capital is actually one of the top hedge funds in WS, I dont know if its still the actual top one but if its not its very close. They have a very, VERY good investment program, up until this week you could joke they had oracles working for them. They shorted CDproject just before the launch of Cyberpunk77, everyone said they were out of their mind (even if the game was worse than expected, it would still sell really well), and they made bank when the most shilled game in recent history just TANKED.
The issue here was not only that melvin capital lost 53% but also that all the other copycat hedge funds mirroring their portfolio started bleeding money without having the billion dollar backing capital MC has. This meant they had to start selling the rest of their stock to cover losses, and the market crashed.
This is what they mean when they say this particular short squeeze can kill the market. If GME went to 10k there would be no money to pay for these stocks.
