When people try to tell me that is "volatile."

Imagine locking up your retirement plan for 40+ years and being exposed to equities that move 800% in less than a month for no reason other than speculation in hostile market conditions.

GME trading at $220 after hours. Up 1000% in 1 week.

@melik SEC will need to change rules to prevent these gamma squeezes. It’s been happening to Tesla for a long time. Just need to buy a boatload of out of the money call options on a stock with massive short interest. Then scammers and pumpers coordinate in message groups to long it while Citadel tries to frontrun their order flow. Stock loan at broker dealers forces a cover on lack of a locate on shortable stock while macro traders move long stock out of brokerages with short interest.
