I don't think its over yet. We've got one more push at least I think. Going to be very volatile no doubt. But Martin Armstrong, who did warn you should take profits Friday, appears to be projecting a possible retest of the breakout in the 45-65 range by March. His arrays appear to point to a top in June.

But GME is down 100 so someone was selling. Was bid up to $385 which I'm not sure the hedgies would??

39% short interest last I heard.

Originally had somewhere between 114% and 140%.

Heard around 50 but not sure your number might be right.

if they want to continue to maximize the pain,
they have to get out while the gettin' is good, otherwise it is all for naught

leave them holding the bag on a zero stock, as let's face it, gamestop isn't worth diddly

give them their cherished stock, sell it to them lock stock and barrel, every friggin' share at these prices,

then sit back and laugh

it is trading places all over again if they pull it off

THUR 5am

told them to sell it all and sit back and laugh,

so here we are, all the way back to a hundie and sinking

until you realize the gains, they aren't gains at all, just digits, easy come, easy go

You’ve made or lost nothing until the sale

You have to book the profit or loss or it's like it never happened.
Until the Democrats tax your shit daily for any profits.

The 52 week low is 2.57, so 90 is still pretty good. I Wonder what the short percentage is now...

Nice slow day and some stability as well as up 15%. This is good. I'm also noticing the other site where everyone and their brother was trying to jump in, some bought way OTM puts and others are leaving to other pastures cause GME is too boring. This is a really good sign. Maybe not for a near-term squeeze but I've always been in this for a longer trade with a squeeze potential.

An excellent ~30 min video that pretty much covers the whole Gamestop story.

We're Back.

The shorts refused to get out at $5. I'm pretty sure they weren't going to give in at $50.

Shorts had their chance to get out cheap for a while. They didn't., and now they are going to reap the whirlwind.
This is a game that can be played repeatedly, there are way too many shorters.

Actually, most of the short interest was closed out of GME. From 140% to something like 20% Not sure where it stands now, but I expect this reprise rally to fizzle today.

If those WSB guys that were underwater on GME long positions aren't selling into this latest price spike...well at some point, what can you say. GTFO.

They've proven they can hurt the hedge fund crooks. They've proven the equity markets are fake and blatantly rigged. They've proven that regulators don't give a damn what happens to little people. No sense being a financial martyr for stubborn's sake.

I agree and disagree. You are correct about them being financial cannon fodder but the real goal is to hurt the bankers and traders so much that they stop the manipulation of the stocks or someone comes in and forces them to stop.

Sort of like little kids behaving when an adult is in the room but then run wild when the adult leaves. The WSB crowd is sort of a 4AM blanket party crowd to the trouble maker.

They've hurt the hedge funds. They've gotten the attention of the powers that shouldn't be. They've caused the scumbags to change the rules to stamp them out. Now they need to retreat so that they can live on to fight another day. They'll not be doing much of anything to hurt the banksters going forward if they can't come up with two nickels to rub together.

Ironically, their most important contribution, may turn out to be their misguided attempt to squeeze silver by piling into the SLV. It brought huge attention, inspired the creation of WSS, and caused two garbage ETFs to frantically amend their prospectuses.

Gamestop isn't done. I think that first spike was just a preview but not the real deal. We shall see. Building a new base over $100 speaks volumes. I'm not sure how but they've managed to hide the real short positions. There are far more "owned" shares than should really exsist.

I’ve never really followed silver. Prefer gold because of value to weight ratio

I started thinking I needed some silver for smaller barter transaction in the dystopian future.

The premium over spot made me look 3x. Are people really paying 14 over spot $40 for a $26 oz?

Gold usually hovers around 10%, which suck but isn’t thievery

i used to play the spot versus buy price, then grew into the GSR trade and graduated into the trade gold to silver, now await the reverse side of that risk, but, today, i find myself playing the Premium Trade

ebay is my canvas and i'm flipping 'crap' for a premium

throwing crap onto the wall and coming up a winner is nice

thanks manipulators

Sorry I like that bounce almost as much. Charts look so similar but what broke out from ~$45 last time was $145-150 this time. Can anyone tell me what $370-483 x Three equals...:reading: :dancing guy:dancing guy:dancing guy



Around $1,111 (great vortex math number) to $1449.

Things are getting Curious again. LOTS of option activity at the highest priced calls. And they are being bid above lower price levels. The last time I noticed this it was blast off time very soon. I thought this was really newb investors from Robinhood before but I think that was an incorrect assumption. This is someone trying to light a gamma squeeze ignition. Note that the stock was down 3% today.

Big Volume in the April 16, but not much inversion

I guess they do not see enough action from the TBTF Banksters manipulating the paper markets. Go back to easy picken's.
