If we know there’s a squeeze coming then surely the shorts do too. Why would they wait until they have to pay what we ask and not cover on the way up? Essentially leaving us holding our stocks with no potential to grow. If we can’t confirm there are naked shorts they surely know ways to hide them.
I’m not trying to spread FUD, I’m trying to get this out of my mind so I don’t get paper hands! I’ve got a lot of money tied up in AMC right now and I’m in profit but it feels like they know our plan and they will do whatever it takes to stay alive.

On one of Trey’s video’s a viewer said, “if you were walking to the electric chair you would walk slowly too” I think this is what is happening… even if they know what we would do the point is we own the stock… we have the power. The only thing the HF could do is psych us out and selling at a lower point. That is why the community is so important and the knowledge of the psychological game is important. There will be people who sell. But many with the majority of the stock will not and the amount of naked shorts they have put out they cannot cover and make disappear that is why we hold the overall price action. They just don’t want you to realize that.

That was actually a tweet on twitter that they were repeating on Trey’s video

Ashley is 💯 right! They are just kicking the can down the road. Hodl tight!

They didn’t cover at lower prices because they believed they would shake out enough apes and be fine. Now that they see that isn’t happening, they are resorting to other tactics to shake us out (negative articles in the press, bots and spam in reddit, youtube, etc) as well as breaking rules that only give them a slap on the wrist. Their ego is what is keeping them in the fight. They know they’ve dug themselves into a hole but believe we will give up before they do.
Kenny has given talks in the past where he told stories about how his company was on the brink of going down but fought back and came back stronger. I’m sure this has only added to their ego and confidence. Besides, retail investors are looked upon as “dumb money” anyway, so they don’t see us as much of a threat.

Exactly… they want you to think they have more tricks up their sleeve but at the end of the day they keep throwing the more money to the same tactics… it’s annoying… (like Patrick Beverly playing Basketball) but it’s just the game they want you to play.. they are going to taunt you until you give up… but we can hold and we can wait… HF don’t mind losing other peoples monies… and they will keep doing it… all we have to do is hold… remember the simplicity of this game is BUY and HOLD.. that is it… we don’t need to do options.. that sometimes gives them too much leverage just keep buying shares and hold those shares… that is where our power is!

This is one of the best “big picture” videos I’ve seen. This is why they doubled down and why they are in big trouble. They thought the rally up in early June would go right back down just like in January. But we’ve been so strong since that rally it’s actually illogical to sell now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4gUdy8gl_o

Thanks for the reassurance my apes. I’m still holding, been doing some reading and watching and learning as always. The fact they are throwing so much at us must strengthens my resolve. I actually watched that video from Ziptrader yesterday and thought it was great. My daily reviewdork videos keep me strong too. Shout out respect to Gabe.

I would want to inform myself on the backround of those who work against apes. For example I try to get info on what those ppl worked on and/or studied in; “Planning-by-simulation” of manufacturing processes by Umesh Subramanian would be a nice read but also not too up to date… ,not the only one also. While I don’t think it is a supertool, there is definetly interesting stuff about all the qualifications of such people.

I thought that this was a good read for anyone stressing the slow price action.

How seasons & holidays affect stocks
The stock market is subject to a seasonal effect in that at certain times of the year, month or even week, share prices can rise or fall.
This can be because there are fewer traders active in the market (for example over summer holidays) or more traders in the market (for example as companies’ and investors’ tax years come to an end). This will also affect how volatile share prices are.
It can also be because traders have simply come to expect rises or dips at these times and the expectation becomes ‘self-fulfilling’. Many traders now rely on technical analysis – using charts to identify historical patterns in the price of an asset – so tend to sell or buy at the same time as a result.
It is important to remember, however, that seasonal stock trends do not apply all the time and should only be one factor in your trading strategy.
Seasonal trends do not always apply and should only be one factor in your trading strategy.
Stock markets tend to perform well at the beginning of the year as this is when many investors have fresh capital to place into the market. They are therefore more likely to buy shares and push up prices. Historically, shares in ‘small cap’ companies benefit most from this effect.
For the same reason, however, January is also often a volatile month for share prices with large, erratic price moves as trader activity surges.
The month is also closely watched because many traders believe that how stock markets perform in January will foretell their performance for the rest of the year.
A popular stock market saying is that ‘As goes January, so goes the year.’ This refers to historical studies showing that when the S&P 500 rises in January, it is far more likely to be up over the entire year than when the index falls in January.
“As goes January, so goes the year”: many traders think that if stock markets rise in January, they will rise over the whole year.
Sell in May
Share prices tend to fall over the summer months as fund managers and big institutional traders go on holiday.
They often sell some of their shares and other assets before they go away. This is so that their investments are at less risk of taking a big hit if markets fall suddenly while they are not at their trading screens to respond quickly.
This has led to one of the most famous stock market sayings: “Sell in May and go away – don’t come back till St Leger Day.” It calls on investors to sell their shares in May and buy them back in September.
St Leger Day refers to the date in early September when a famous horse race is run in Britain.
Because trading volumes and liquidity are lower over the summer, it is easier for one big trade to push prices around. Therefore share prices can be more volatile over this time and trading can be higher risk.
Many big traders go on holiday for the summer and sell out of big or risky shareholdings first, pushing their price down. The old “sell in May” saying advises them not to buy shares back until September.
The end of a financial quarter or year can also see stock markets become quite volatile, with the share price of some companies reversing direction.
This is because institutional and retail investors often ‘rebalance’ their portfolios at these times, looking to see which of their investments have performed well.
If the share price of a company they have invested in has experienced a particularly strong uplift over the period, they may decide to take profit on those trades and sell the shares. This can push down the company’s share price.
If the share price of a company they have invested in has experienced a particularly sharp fall, they may decide that the company is now undervalued and decide to buy its shares while prices are cheap. This can push up the company’s share price.
Towards the end of the tax year, many investors also sell stocks that have declined in value throughout the year. This is so that they can claim capital losses against their tax bill
It tends to push such share prices down temporarily.
Long weekends and national holidays
Share prices often rally ahead of long weekends and three-day holidays, such as Thanksgiving and Independence Day in the US.
This has been attributed to simple optimism and high spirits among traders.
There is also a more fundamental basis, however, as consumers tend to spend more over holidays, especially ones like Christmas. This can push up the share prices of retailers in particular.
Share prices often rally ahead of long weekends and three-day holidays. They also tend to experience their biggest falls of the week on a Monday and their biggest rises on a Friday.
Share prices are also believed to behave in a certain way depending on which day of the week or month it is.
The so-called Monday effect refers to the tendency of share prices to experience their biggest fall of the week.
There are a number of theories about why this happens. Some have attributed it to a large volume of bad news being released over the weekend. Others say it is simply that investors’ spirits are low as they return to work.
In contrast, Fridays often see share prices experience their biggest rise of the week.
Share prices also often perform better towards the very end and very beginning of a month, dipping in the middle.

I’m sure they will cover before huge price movement but as they do it will squeeze the stock higher and they will probably still try and hide there naked shorts as long as they can but when they have to cover those as well then they maybe paying more.They also keep adding shorts to AMC so they like many say are trying for a slow death lol Nfa.
MemberJune 30, 2021 at 4:11 pm
I believe they cannot cover. They could have in the early days, but they did not understand the scope of their failure and still do not. They believe they can sell back and forth to pretend to cover but they are under scrutiny for doing just that.
Additionally I believe they have bought 620 million shares more than they have sold in the dark pool, then sold those shares on the market. I believe they have sold more shares than the entire float, perhaps many times over, and we own 80 percent of the float.
This means that they have sold shares to institutions, to day-traders and to Apes that they have to cover before they even get to the float.
If this is true, then the last ape to hodl will call his own price.
