🎉 Short sellers lose almost $5 billion in one day
By - jockeposener
Say it with me haven’t lost shit until they cover.
THEY HAVE NOT LOST A PENNY UNTIL THEY BUY BACK THE SHARES.
They will do everything in their power to get us to sell, they’re tricky mf’s and they have the crooked ass media in their pockets, don’t forget that.
I got two fucking shares. I’ll take them to my grave.
I like how you think. You get free popcorn for being a loyal ape.
Gonna be some newly minted millionaires doing Scrooge McDuck dives into pools of popcorn
Did you hear the latest? Some of these brokerages won't carry these hedge fund guys, something tells me they know something we don't and I think these stocks are about to go through the mooooon!
don't they have to pay rent on the shares they borrowed to go short? idk how this works
They have to pay interest, but technically, that’s probably on margin too. So, they expect to make back the interest when they buy back the short - it’s all calculated in.
Unless large marge comes askin for the money. Then they gotta pay the piper
That’s not true, they’re paying a ton of interest for borrowing the stock every day. The higher the price of the stock, the higher the market value of the short, the more interest they need to pay.
They don’t pay the interest until they close the position or they’re margin called, from what I understand.
However, even if that’s not the case, the interest is trivial in comparison to the 5B they’re talking about in this newscast.
They are not hurting unless they are forced to liquidate.
The daily interest gets added to their balance so they need to either put up more collateral or close out the position. For heavily shorted stocks, the interest rate can end up being pretty high if the shares are high in demand. It may not seem like much, but it does add up over time, especially on $5B.
The segment also started with an announcement that AMC is diluting peoples' holdings -\_-
We can stay retarded longer than they can stay solvent.
Edit: For all the folks that are new...
That’s my secret, I’m always retarded.
Oh I get it you’re like the retarded Hulk!
I’m going to start telling people I’m a rulked out ape. 😆
A retard ape on roids, baby
**[RULKED OUT APE](http://archive.zbrushcentral.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=345376)**
I'm pretty sure the Hulk is already retarded.
Always have, Ben.
You never go full retard
Um, I kinda went full retard 👀
Went full, then on margin
That's what they get for being greedy pieces of shit.
Isnt that true how they can be greedy yet we are viewed by the media and them as being unfair to try to make money??
Bc class in America is the taboo subject and the haves have the mic.
This CNBC reporter just drum rolled and tapped her desk after she said “to the tune of 2 billion dollars✌️”. Wow she really cares about us apes. Lmao
Do your DD, man, she said "5 billion dollars".
The funny thing is someone in another Reddit stream said that those numbers are known as unrealized losses and they are not specifying that so basically they are corroborating what advocating for them and in other words sticking up for them like they should be winning how funny is that the media is speaking up for the people who steal the money from the regular people LOL
Accountant here, it's technically true they are unrealized losses, and will remain as such on their financials until they actually realize the loss when they are forced to buy back shares. The realized losses don't actually occur until they start buying back their shorted shares. That's when the real blood is shed.
Uhhhh? Come again?
I need to rest a few minutes first...
Thats what 1 banana costs.
One banana costs $0.29
Thats a meal............... Eat up...........
Dude, the bananas I bought at Wal-Mart were $0.34/lb. You are paying way too much for bananas. Who is your banana guy?
I heard it was more like $10
Heyyyyy check out dem redditurds with their meme stocks y'all!
What a bunch of hoots!
because we're any better... we're just greedy retards... they're just greedy.
I personally like being retarded
Personally I don’t think it’s all greed, for me it’s about trying to climb out of this pit of debt and starvation wages.
If I don’t have to struggle as much just to live, that’s a win for me. Plus I get to give the finger to the corrupt bastards milking us dry. That’s just icing on the cake.
We have humble origins
We have Harambe origins
Or this is exactly what they want and are setting up something bigger. It's not very characteristic of these large institutions to just piss away 5 bil in a day without some reason or plan for it.
You can say it's "greed." But they aren't allowed to trade these amounts on a whim. So obviously there is something else going on that we aren't seeing.
Possibly their short positions are just hedges on their longs since they know these Meme stocks get pumped and that 5 bil loss on short positions is less then their gain on long.
I'm not saying don't ride the wave and make some money.... But let's stop pretending retail is sticking it to the institutions because they are just using you like a puppet to profit.
The meme stock bandwagon is obviously not organic like maybe it once was. These things seem more like "coordinated plays" at this point. Yes, ape take banana right now but there's something else smelling in Denmark.
I don't doubt for a second that there is extensive astroturfing going on and the apes are getting played. A few "influencers" in investing subreddits have already confessed that they were offered money to post fake DD info that was written for them. If I had a fund and I wanted to liquidate a competitor, I'd infiltrate and mobilize the apes too
So you're saying they've weaponized autism?
“Something is going on in the background we can’t see.”
Most cliche conspiracy line I’ve ever heard.
And yet it’s really hard to believe these huge hedge funds, worth billions of dollars, are just as retarded as reddit.
Honestly at this point it’s the other way around 😂🤣
Lol ya, but we need to keep insulting their egos so they keep doubling down.
Solvent stay can they than longer retarded stay can we?
These shorts just never learn, let’s burn em.
I mean... Did they actually lose this money? Nothing forced them to cover that I'm aware of.
Or is it a calculation of "IF they cover at these prices, this is what they stand to lose" ?
Yeah, I don’t think the shorts have covered yet.
I thought it was the fee for having open positions
Yeah I think they pay interest to keep their shorts open.
I opened my shorts but nobody paid any interest.
Try it again but this time at an elementary school. You'll definitely get some interest there.
They’ll be a person of interest for sure.
were they naked shorts?
Explaining the across-the-board sell-off today. Gotta raise more money somehow, no kidneys left.
so this is the reason why i got a 1pm margin call.on my TSLA shares.
I thought u got that cuzz TSLAs China sales #dropped by 50%
Interest is relatively low. I think what MSM is saying is that these are the unrealized losses. But you need to sensationalize it, so you leave out “unrealized”
No, this is unrealized losses. If they closed at this price. The yearly fee is much much lower.
Oh no, the power went out again. We will only be able to support Sells for the next week. Thanks for your cooperation.
People also assume that a hedge fund, didn't actually hedge their bets.
Imagine having a big short position in a security that people are actively trying to squeeze for months.
Do you :
A. Hold only the short position.
B. Hold the short position as the long term play, cost average as it moves up, and hedge the position with short term big call options to protect against any sudden spikes.
I don't know why everyone think big institutional funds trade just like inexperienced retail investors/gamblers except with more money.
Honestly, they could be selling fuckload of covered puts too. Premiums are insane and cushion against those kinds of moves quite a bit.
Amc would have to tank and hold it for the day for shorts to have a chance. As long as amc holds this price, shorts will be forced to cover no matter what
they are never forced to cover unless they don't have the assets to back up their short positions -which is unlikely for the large hedge funds. They can always get another few billion from their buddies. However, they can't just tie up all of their capital in losing positions FOREVER. Eventually they will want to cover - but only if they think the stock will remain this price for multiple years or continue to climb.
I got time.
For sure, if we hang around the 50-60 range, I bet a lot of shorts are going to be covering before the weekend. If not I can just imagine the squeeze throughout the next couple of weeks.
Yeah exactly. That's why I was comfortable buying at 65 and today at 37. If the stock can comeback from over 37% loss after another short attack, that shows the amount of support amc is getting. Inflow is getting higher and higher, more calls put out too because of the dip... tomorrow should be fun.
Excited as well, but can’t stop checking my phone every 10 minutes
Every ten minutes? I'm literally checking every ten seconds
I have the ticker up at work, so I can just look at it all day
Me to. Also if the regular market is already close. 😂💪🏻🤌🏻
Maybe they should get 2nd or 3rd jobs to account for the $5B lost. They could drive for Uber for instance.
They should learn to code.
They could learn to service Solar Panels
Cut down on the avocado toast.
$5 per day, a billion days and they'll be right back.
They bought too much avocado toast and now can’t afford a 5th wing on their mansions.
"Occupy Wall Street"?
Wtf, nobody's said that in 3 years. What's she on about?
3 years?! I thought that shit went extinct in 2009!
Yeah, three years ago
Man I just started high school then.
Now I'm... *^^^^three ^^^^years ^^^^out*
Ahh, its great that the 90s was only 10 years ago...
Yeah, is anyone saying that here or anywhere else? They are just trying to associate this with the failed OWS movement to make it seem like something it isn't.
$5 billion so far
That was just 1 day.. they've lost a lot before yesterday
so far is much higher
Can we find out how much money they have made off our meme stocks since then also. We can only do well if we have all the info
We can also find out how much money they have... period
Well they have insurance policies worth trillions. Literally.
They haven't lost shit until they close their position.
Besides interest, but yeah
I just think the "they lost 5 billion" narrative is bs. It's intentionally misleading. The interest they're paying is virtually non-existent compared to what it should be. These hedge fucks are scum. The entire system is fraudulent.
We want the bailout money back
$5B so far based on fraudulent reported short interest
This is one of my proudest faps.
I came all over Shepherd Smith
All I got was my chest.. how'd you get Shepard Smith?
I have a wide stance
today, we all fap together happily
All I hear when they say "short sellers lost" is many many family's rejoicing.
Nah that’s the narrative they want to give you. We saw this play coming months out. “We lost, you won. Sell and take your gains.”
I dont think they understand. We want the very shirts off their backs.
Idk about you, but I’m certainly rejoicing. And I’m going to keep rejoicing tomorrow when they keep losing. And the next day. And the next day. Etc.
[And the next day...](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6H8ouf_m9hQ&t=0m5s)
There’s many hedge funds makining billions as well though b
#gain it all back in one day 🤣 something they won't report on. Fear
Can we please find out how much they are making of options and the volatility to offset their shorts?
They sold 11.5 Million to pay for the 🦍🍿
These people made money off us tax payers.
They were bailed out when they failed by our money.
They bought and sold in market we couldn't even get access to.
Long goal = Trillion dollar loss for all these short sellers, investment bankers and hedge funds.
I fucking love justice
and we as americans are due a LOT of fucking justice. this is just the beginning!
Someone tell me this:
Why wouldn’t they play the same game here? If the short interest is known (they even called out the site that people here are probably using), they would know that momentum is probably going to swing to those tickers soon. So they buy calls.
Those calls print, and while they still have their short positions, those calls will outweigh the losses. Sure, they can lose $Bs, but how much did they also *make* off their opposite positions?? They could still be in the green here.
Always remember they’re watching what we’re doing here, learning, and adapting. This isn’t over yet. This report only covers half the story.
The pro traders aren't watching and learning and adapting to the retail flow: they're manipulating it, using it, and profiting from it.
Trillion is a nice number to start with
Sounds wonderfully delicious
PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS
REDISTRIBUTE THE WEALTH
We all fight the same battle! Fuck the shorts
Occupy Wall Street was a thing 10 years ago
Bleed Wall Street now
I'm proud of you APES!
Don’t trust CNBC.
They are first to spread fud to fuck with retail whenever they can.
This was my first thought. They want us to think we have won so we'll sell and move on. This is only the beginning. Notice how they tried to sell WKHS as the next play.
They're unrealized losses. Are people in wsb that retarded
Hmm..interesting theory. I also found her enthusiasm a little over the top ( still hot though).
She's probably excited to have a fun story for once instead of the regular bullshit. Even if she's on their team she's excited to be a part of it. I've been dunked on, and it sucks but there's still a big part of me that's like "that was cool man."
She said it herself, these are chump change paper losses. Gotta pump those losses high and make them realized
This lady just kept getting hotter the more she talked about the shorts getting fucked
"Keep going, I'm almost there..."
Occupy wall street??
*Liquidate Wall Street*
Don’t go to that website btw. hishortinrerest.com will set up a virus on your phone with calendar spam.
It’s HIGHshortinterest.com not HIshortinterest.com .... lol
Edit: god damn you retards can’t spell
That sounded so suspicious. CNBC promoting a specific website for info on shorts.
“This is where the Reddit gang will plan their next *frenzy*”
Bet when you visit it they’ll have Silver with the highest short interest.
Yeah I got a calendar spamming virus from it. You guys might be retards but, I would rather have it happen to me before someone else.
Ape strong forever
45 more BB on the dip. Just a baby Ape doing what he can...
Ook ook brother 🦍 apes strong together 💎 🙌🏻
I bought BB at the top like a tard. This rally is making me feel good.
So did I, but averaged down and now I'm even.. until tomorrow 😈
I do not play the stock market very much. I want to say how proud I am of this room. The shorts need a black eye and a bloody nose
This is not a room. This a short bus.
And it's [going to the moon](https://www.whartoncenter.com/assets/img/The-Magic-School-Bus-2f218b27b3.jpg)
With candy flavored windows
And they call US retarded.
Pretty much the only thing we get accurate.
Yeah! You like that you fuckin retard!?
That's OUR word!
Walk into my job and tell them I lost 5 billion and I'd end up in jail. Fucking dude does it day after day after day, and just goes home to sleep at night.
Technically they havent lost anything yet. Its just ones and zeros.
Yes robinhood just posted Amc article down 6 percent but funny why not say it destroyed the 33 percent short attack this morning then in fact went up positive about 6 percent before settling? Isnt it funny how Robinhood friend to average people keeps trying to keep people from buying AMC?!!
All I heard is BB is the #1 in volume of the day and I know what we're going to be doing to those shorts tomorrow.
Why do they keep calling these meme stocks? These are legit companies with legit track records. The they have had their struggles but they have more potential than many other “blue chip” stocks out there. AMC and GME are meme stocks, yet stock in airlines are somehow legit, although they are propped up by the government and are more poorly run.
Since they didn't cover, wouldn't this be considered edging and not loss porn?
Hard to believe this was on CNBC...
Did HF run out of payoff 💰?
Short sellers right now: You know, I'm something of a retard myself.
Im doubling down! **Retail traders owns more than 80% of AMC stocks**. Tomorrow's play will be AMC and BB, the shorts will feel more pain compared to Wednesday! This is the way! 🚀
This is the way. 🚀
I hope the shorts go bankrupt
Pretty sure she said...
...buy the dip.
We still going with blackberry next??
Why not, fuck ‘em
Yes! This makes my diamond even harder! Let's pray for the low-life traders who won't afford that second yacht this month. APES NOT SELLING TILL THEY COVER!
I kept seeing BB and assumed you morons were buying Best Buy. Blackberry? Christ.
I figure I might as well get in on them while they're priced like a failed phone brand
I won’t stop till they don’t exist. 25 thousandare club
Once a short is always a short!
They’re about to be shortless
Good job apes 🦍
I guess this means AMC won today?
Do we have a tally on which stock is causing the most lose?
Retail Apes: "How many times do we have to teach you this lesson OLD MAN?!"
BOO HOO SMART MONEY LOST BIG MONEY HOW WILL THEY LIVE WITH THEMSELVES?
Retards. Get what they deserve
Most active stock, lesss go! 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀
Bottom line, retards gonna win this game in the end
Bought more shares at $55, amc strong hodl!
Pump BB to the top so it's a FANG 🦍🦍🦍
This is the way
This news makes me so hard
