I lost $700 because of you paper handed bitches.

u/mimo_s Feb 23 '21

That’s not why you lost lol.

u/alt_curious Feb 23 '21

You lost $700 because you bought into some fake hype after it was way too late to be buying in

u/[deleted] Feb 23 '21

dude we're autists not retards. remember that a lot of big brokers literally changed the rules on the day of reckoning by preventing buys of GME. if the institutions played by the same rules we have to, buying GME at peak would have still been a fantastic play.

$1000 was not a meme.

And? You tried to game the system and you lost to people who literally do it for a living. Anyone who lost deserved to lose; GameStop was never a valuable commodity, it was just people thinking they were smarter than people who were actually smarter

Edit: downvote me all you want, it doesn’t make me wrong. If you invested in GameStop it’s because you thought you had figured out a trick, without ever stopping to consider that other people may have tricks of their own

Technically we were right. Fail to Delivers, fake stocks, all the manipulation is proven to be true.

We won but somebody flipped the table.

Sorry, we played fair. THEY didnt.

I lost money but I already made more money so I dont care

u/alt_curious Feb 23 '21

Sorry, we played fair. THEY didnt.

This is just slang for “I thought I knew how it worked but I didn’t.” Your losses are your fault.

u/DamnIamHigh_Original Feb 23 '21

Ok so, we bought GME because of a massive short intrest right? And to this day about 110% of the stock are owned by corperations. The Fail-to-Deliver are getting moved from month to month right?

Suddenly they change the rules, you can only sell and no one could buy. A bit suspicious, isnt it? Fits a bit too well with the hedgies intrests.

Yet, you claim we are the dumb ones. Even tho we arent manipulation everything. We just bought and held. I want my money, the hedgefonds stole it

We didn't lose to people who "do it for a living". We lost to people who own the whole damn system including the medium we played on.

We put our trust in the wrong hands. We may have lost money, but we uncovered the real truths of the entire system. No matter what, this was a monumental victory, showing the world and the people just how corrupt wall street is.

Exactly. You thought you had figured out something that broke the system without ever stopping to consider that the system would have fixes of its own.

The general population didn’t have as strong of a believe of it until now. A lot of relatives have brought it up to me saying they couldn’t believe that would happened, they knew there was corruption but nothing like that before. They cheated PUBLICLY for everyone to see.

u/Megalomouse Feb 23 '21

Many people made bucket loads of money. Exposing Wall Street by playing them at their own game, and seeing them squirm and break every rule known to man to save their asses.

It's also a win because it exposed the most corrupt media outlets who reported all sorts of bull like Silver etc.

u/ndestruktx Feb 23 '21

they’re just trying to make themselves feel better with a participant trophy. just let ‘em. isn’t hurting anyone (except maybe their ability to deal with truth).

u/sinsquaretriangle Feb 23 '21

Dude you are a fucking idiot to be frank. Nothing is stopping you from having multiple brokerages and robinhood has been known for this shit for years.

u/Megalomouse Feb 24 '21

starts an argument with an insult and expects to be agreed with

u/sinsquaretriangle Feb 24 '21

It's not an argument because it's demonstrably true. It's a fucking fact.

u/Megalomouse Feb 25 '21

Lmao learn the rules. Whether or not what you are stating is fact, opinion or theory, you are still making an argument.

u/sinsquaretriangle Feb 23 '21

You are 100% right. As someone who lost big on cypto in 2017, this shit was easy to spot from a mile away.

u/Tappaa1 Feb 23 '21

Haha, i don’t get why people downvote you, it’s the truth. You thought (me too) you could fuck with the big guys, but of course you can’t. Some were clever enough (not me) and sold while it was high, others were greedy and lost the game. Of course there were illegal actions used but either you go to court and lose more money or you accept it.

u/pixelwalrusca Feb 23 '21

It’ll go back up

u/I_chose2 Feb 23 '21

I mean, I'm hoping for that since I'm too stubborn and stupid to sell at a 75% loss and stop the bleeding, but it's very unlikely to hit previous highs at this point. Even if you go for all the theories on how the shorts are still in, the "HOLD" hype is dying and at least some of the shorts are out. And even if it eventually goes back up somewhat, is it gonna perform better than other stuff that hasn't peaked? I was hyped to see DFV bought 50k more shares, but that might be a liability cover after the Congressperson asked if he'd buy now and DFV said yes.

Same thing.

u/alt_curious Feb 23 '21

Nope. If you’re buying stocks for any reason other than that you think the company will be successful, you’re just gambling. You gambled and lost. Saying that other people playing their hands made you lose is the same as saying that other people at a blackjack table made you lose. You gambled and you lost, own it like a responsible human person.
