Robinhood has stopped the buying of a particular stock, but not the selling. This is what market manipulation actually looks like.

The Bitcoin-Cash market like the Bitcoin market has been witnessing restricted movement. The digital asset was priced at $405 at the time of writing but was heading lower on the price scale. Meanwhile, the market capitalization has slipped to $7.49 billion putting it in the ninth position on the CoinMarketCap list. Bitcoin Cash’s price remained above the support level but a drop is possible. The market has been painting a bearish picture due to increased volatility indicated by the divergence of the Bollinger Bands. A price swing further along the channel could be a possibility. The signal line also remained above the candles, suggesting that the price was moving lower. The Relative Strength Index affirmed a rise in selling pressure as it was dropping from the equilibrium zone and closer to the oversold zone. If the price didn’t hold at $393, it may continue its fall till $336. As  a crypto trader the past few weeks has recorded immerse benefits all round, my only regret now is not knowing Burwell Coleman on time, his top notch signals remains the bedrock of the successes recorded in my  personal trading portfolio. He continues to be an inspiration to all who have been fortunate to have made use of his s!gnals. Burwell Coleman can be reached on his gmail ([email protected]) and telegram (burwellcoleman), remember always be positive in whatever we do.

RobinHood Ceo Vlad: "We give the power to small investor"
and the literally take the power away when they and their friends lost the money,
Does anyone remember a Teenage kid killed himself because his robinhood app glitched and show him that he was under thousand of dollars
BS
Chris Proft
Chris Proft:
Cuomo didn’t press on his most important question as to why they didn’t restrict selling of the 13 stocks, which would point to the concessions that Robin Hood had to make to the clearing houses to reduce their capital requirement from 3 billion to $700 million.
Andreas Leonhard
Andreas Leonhard:
Notice how he shakes his head from side to side. According to some experts in lying this is a subconscious move when someone is lying. Your body is basically telling the truth.

MLG GAMER

He seems to really be dodging that question giving a generic answer. "Oh we did it to protect the customers and we really haven't seen this kind of activity before so we restricted it"
Kinda sketchy if you ask me. What I'd like to know is if they really protecting customers I'd like to see an instance where they actually do the same thing but for the wealthier investors. If they do the same exact thing then I know they are being fair in their decision if not......... they're definitely protecting the wealthier customers

You gotta think about it this way. Robinhood was originally made for individual investors so they could do the investing work themselves (no commission for using Robinhood). They are partly owned by Citadel, and pretty much all of these firms want Robinhood out because it cuts into their market share when Robinhood is pretty much free to use. The media (who is in bed with the firms for damn sure) see the writing on the wall, and by that I mean everybody of all political persuasions (who aren’t rich) are infuriated over this situation. By them taking down Robinhood (even if Citadel partly owns them) they can somewhat satisfy the mob, while getting rid of the platform that enabled this situation to begin with. Chris Cuomo just knows that he isn’t going to be successful in defending Robinhood at this point. At the end of the day fuck Robinhood, and I hope somebody establishes a new option on the market. Again though... Ofcourse they are coming after Robinhood, because they don’t like having independent investors doing anything on the stock market. They want to return to making it to where stock broker firms have a monopoly on the stock market (because they need to make sure no large group of small investors are betting against their shorts, because what happened on Reddit is somewhat easily repeatable without having to negotiate with their stock brokers who make sure there are no populist financial maneuvers against Wall Street), and for that reason the media is halfway siding with the investors that got halfway screwed by Robinhood (and yes I believe Robinhood broke the law) so they can push independent investor apps out altogether. If Robinhood is the only thing that goes down in this senario, then no justice was done... Only further harm to the democratization of Wall Street.

Shady as hell. Lawyers already gearing up for a class action. We all know who his real clients are. It’s okay. There are different platforms for us to use and best believe we won’t be manipulated!
Aimal Popal
Aimal Popal:
His reasoning was justified brokerages do have a lot capital requirements I get that...but the fact that they decided to ALLOW selling that is what makes me think there was anterior motives OR and this is possible they didn't expect what happened to happen and someone dropped the ball on that decision.
Singleballtheory
Singleballtheory:
I get the impression when he says "We have lots of financial requirements" what he means to say is "If this one major investor of ours goes under right now, we go under too". Too big to fail, as it were. Right or wrong, I'd be finding a different place to do business then. Perhaps one that isn't directly tied up in all this, if one even exists.

"We protect our customers by making them lose money" makes perfect sense.

Even if so, how is it even legal to advertise and promise a specific service and then deny it ?
Don't know what to say but it sounds like fraud and scam to me.

According to Dave Portnoy, though Vlad is lying, you must give hime some credit. He is forced to do this by others and he will pay the ultimate price. Robinhood is now done.

DFV, the kitty, glimpsed the riggings of the nemesis, the hedgehog. He rallied the apes under WSB's banner and they stormed the gates. The hedgehog laughed but didn't fathom their hands were diamond and not paper. Throughout the clash and smokescreen, the apes stayed sharp. By lights out at EOW, though betrayed by the robin, half the hedgehog's gates had fallen.
