Sell now while you can.

I cant tell you who I am, but my brother is a janitor who works at one of the offices who provided financial assistance to one of the funds who helped bail out Melvin and co.

He overheard the higherups talking about some of these reddit users actually being suspected corporate entities who are trying to arrange a takeover by pushing them into bankruptcy.

He said that they said these guys actions lined up with previous failed negotiation attempts and it's like they had deep insider info on the inner workings of these hedges, likely former employees.

He said not only did some of these reddit guys make almost prophetic moves in the market at critical times, they also divulged information on future moves that were still internal at the time.

He said that they are only in this to bankrupt some rival agencies and that at the right time they are going to sell and leave everyone else holding the bags.

no shit anon, it's plain as day that this was designed by big money. They saw and opportunity, exploited it, and then spread it to social media to redirect the blame of fucking the market.
a lot of people will benefit, so that's good, but it comes at a costs, and it's rather pretentious to act as if reddit or /biz/ made this a reality. There is too much money pumped into this stock for it to be a working class pump.

This is a direct attack of hedge funds, on hedge funds. To think otherwise is naive. The reason there's no risk right now is because there simply isn't enough working class money involved for the hedge funds to justify dumping when the potential money to be gained is off the charts. The only thing that could possibly save the shorts is if the other hedge funds sandbag their gains and bail them out by selling and tanking the stock.

Hedge funders made a bet that GME would crash (that bet was a "short call"). When it starts rising above what they bet it would be they have to cover their asses by buying back the stocks that they put up for the bet, but since so many shares were bet there simply are not enough left to cover their positions.

That means SOMEONE will be left holding the collective bag, because every time a short caller buys back shares it raises the price even higher, and at the end of the day the only shares left for purchase to cover those short calls will be from retail investors, and so retail has a lot of power in this specific scenario to set the price as long as they all hold

Hedge funds just don't hold massive shorts

Don’t over leverage and remember shorts are potentially infinite losses.
Like they teach the goyim first day in business.

The problem is, /wsb doesn't own all of the shares.
Their diamond hands won't really matter if the other people (who own the majority of the stock) begin selling. The price will then start to fall, putting much more pressure on the remaining hands.
How much of their gains do you see the average normie in /wsb (or here) allowing to evaporate before they say fuck it and get out?

I wonder if it's like hedge fund A takes a 0.5x loss so hedge fund B can make 2x gains. Next time B takes 0.5x loss and A gets 2x gains... all the gains being absorbed from retail of course

I will explain.
They naked short all the time.
But this time.
Some hedigies took their eyes off the screen and when Melvin was found to be top of the huge profit coming in, he got jealous. Or may be he accused Melvin of not alerting. It's like your classmate didn't tell you about obvious questions coming in exams.
Now that guy(Steve Cohen may be), wants to take revenge. This is Jew 101. Human 201. This is very simple explanation of whole thing.
What is interesting is, how the SEC are going to intervene now their crony tactics have become common knowledge.
Media will be called to do the subversion, diversion and what not. Focus would be shifted from "Look for Hedgies shorting the dying company" to "White supremacy", "Racism", "Social Media hackers" or whatever it takes. Journalist are pure garbage.
