Honestly, I wouldn’t mind donating a couple grand to make hedge funds poor.
"Short-Sellers Lose Estimated $70 Billion Following Reddit’s GameStop Stock Surge"?
2021 is already better than 2020. 😁😁😁😁😁
Ain’t no one trying to have kids while being broke

These older generations are so suprised that there is a baby bust. The last time we had a baby boom, the economy was good, we had won WWII, and sex ed was terrible.

Does this mean Reddit’s gonna choose a stock every month and fuck over the hedgefunds? Because I’d love to participate
"We're not worried about hedge fund guys. They can cry about this on their helicopter that takes them to their boat that takes them to their yacht."
Short Selling: To put it simply is when people or companies "borrow" a stock and immediately sell it (lets say 100 shared at $10 each for $1000) with the promise to return the same number of stock at a later set date. Assuming the stock went down in value (lets say to $5) they would buy the same ammount of stock (100 shares at $5 now for $500) and keep the $ difference (a gain of $500 minus some fees). if the value goes up well then they have to buy back in at a loss and pay fees on top of that.

Billionaires: Just invest that $600 stimulus, sweetie
Poor People:
Billionaires: No, that's not how you're supposed to play the game! 😭

The elites who crashed the economy in 2008 suddenly have very strong opinions about market manipulation 🤔

Rich people: poor people are poor because they don't invest their money
Poor people: Ok, lets all invest
Rich people: "surprised Pikachu face"
Rich people: pls stop, think of the poor rich people
I feel like these analysts who thought that this lockdown would result in a baby boom are showing their disconnect from the circumstances of the average person. I think you'd be hard pressed to find find anyone who finds the idea of hardship and economic uncertainty sexy. Did they just assume these things wouldn't weight on people's minds?

Trevor got a 40m mansion recently. Funny how he "makes fun of the rich" and tries to blend in with regular people.

the crypto market is one of the most potential places to invest in, in investing in crypto is often risky which draws attention to the huge losses and gains of Investors, if you can manage the risk then you can take advantage of the crypto market to secure your financial position and earn money

I'm glad you're still a comedian doing a show instead of doing a talk show host who adds comedy to their monolog
Robinhood: Restricts
WSB: Give me GME or give me death!
"That's not how stock exchange works" - Well actually this is exactly how it works!
It's all just gambling anyway. Good for reddit for exposing the myth that there's any relationship between the stock market and reality. Way to eat their shorts!

Forex and cryptocurrency is the order of the day in the modern world so rather than storing it, venture into investments that could bolster your financial status.
But before going into it you would need the formal supervision of a very professional and trustworthy broker, I would advice you work with Mrs Rosslyn Howard.

Wall Street Dudes (who earn a lot out of someone else's loss, affect the economy and manipulate the market themselves) to the redditors : *"Hey why you bully me?"*
After all the trials and errors, who knew that to make America work, all it needed was Reddit?

America: "Reddit, you complete me."

Hedge Funds guys actually think that they deserve the millions that they "earn" each year for shorting struggling companies. Once they succeed in bankrupting the company all of the employees become unemployed, the investor makes their $ and the investors move on to the next real company to destroy. Revenge of the nerds. Good for Reddit!

Trevor's reaction to this is the best! Man, I love reddit!!!
Thanks for the explanation. I was totally lost on this one at first.
Thanks for the clarification (and the laughs), Trevor.
"Trading mob" oh isn't it awful when the poors try to manipulate the market? Only rich people are supposed to be able to do that.

U out did yourself with this one!!!!!🤣👏 🔥‼️
They didn't want regulations when millions of people lost their livelihoods or their homes.
Excellent piece.
No doubt cryptocurrency has become the order of the day and one needs proper guidance or tutelage in order to make profits rather than running losses.
There are so many brokers out there but getting a reliable broker isn’t as easy as some might think.
Trading with Mrs Harriet has been profitable to me because of the exceptional strategies and t has been profitable to me because of the exceptional strategies and trading signals which she uses while trading.

My father lost everything in the stock market after Alan Greenspan said to “tap” your home equity into the stock market back in ‘99. End result was us losing our home, big surprise. This news is heart warming to me that Wall Street is finally getting their just deserts.
