    Loyal Theorists, I'm sure you've seen something about what's been happening with GameStop and the stock market. Just in case you haven't, here's a quick summary: a group of Redditors came together to raise the value of GameStop stock. Wall Street got mad. The public investors , like the Redditors, made money. That all meant a lot more people being interested and aware of stock prices than ever before. So, today, I want to help you understand what's been going on and, more importantly, what that means for the FUTURE!

      Umm, Mat-Pat I hate to be that guy . . . Who am I kidding, I love to be that guy, you’re analysis here is, well, . . . all kinds of misinformed. The “SEC” 25k rule only applies to margin accounts. Most retail investors have cash accounts. It also isn’t in place to “protect” anyone. It’s there as collateral for brokerages. Hedge funds also do not take huge risk as their primary sources of income. The term “hedge” means to hedge (build a wall) between their risk and their reward. So basically, they may have initially shorted GME, but their stop losses would have pulled them out way before a short squeeze and they would have then covered and rode the gains. So, they weren’t freaking out. It is also worth mentioning that trading is halted all the time wether on the circuit board or at the brokerage level. The reason brokers halted trading was because with so many people buying on margin, this would have potentially bankrupted them if the stock tanked and left bag holders who were unable to pay back what they owed. It was the right call. Also, the stock market is not “betting”. It is a science of supply and demand and trader psychology. Those who think it is about luck or betting are very ignorant of the market. Your assessment of shorting is also off. Anyway, next time you do a video like this you should stay away from Reddit and talk to a real day trader. A couple more things, stop losses limit risk, volatility prevents unlimited gains, hyping a stock lands people in jail, Melvin capital made a bad decision but will be fine due to their other hedges, GME is worth about $8, and the #1 rule of course is “the market always corrects.”

      Would it be worth it to do a game theory episode on Dogecoin? And why a memecoin is suddenly gaining value all of a sudden? And what the value might be in the future. Whether it will go to a dollar and then suddenly drop, or whether it will rise and why this might happen.

    6. Uwe Fischer

      Be careful, investing in the stock market isn’t for the weak hearted I started great and look at me, almost lost it all...I am gonna tell a detailed story of my folly😂

      1. Emmanuela Meyer

        Tried him out from the info you provided. It is difficult to predict how reliable a person is on a short basis. But Clemans has proven to be reliable and a great asset with my investments.

      2. Bernad Shrimp

        Sir Levi ! I remember the gentleman from 2019 when I first met him. Signed up late last year November on his platform, aalreading reeling in profit from my initial $12k investment that has snowballed into $87k over months of reinvesting. Great market enthusiast overall.

      3. Uwe Fischer


      4. Uwe Fischer

        @Chandler Meredith I wouldn’t want to post his info on here as it’s a public platform, but since you asked, it’d be best you reach him directly via mail, here...

      5. Chandler Meredith

        @Uwe Fischer How can I reach him please? I’m pretty new to the stock market and can’t afford to lose such amount

    7. Eden Stonebridge

      I would legitimately love a economy theory it has irl implications it’s interesting and theirs a lot of money calc stuff on game theory that buffers better uploads that are halted

    8. Unity • 5 years ago

      Well the saddest thing ever happened is they closed it in Scandinavia pain.

    9. STRIKER

      I don't understand anything about this Stonks that happened over now 3 months ago. But I kept hearing more of those news reports before. But I don't understand any of it.

    14. Gud E Nuff

      After the Gamestop/GME squeeze, would you mind doing a game theory on it? I felt like I was watching one of your episodes while following gamestop. Would love to see your take on all the cryptic tweets and other shenanigans (cryptic tweets from DFV & Ryan Cohen, paid media articles, news networks, possible distraction on dump and pumps of various stocks and most recently, crypto currency, brought reddit accounts to infiltrate and sabotage, possible betrayals, ect..) Or you can do it before, to see if your theory pans out. (up till April 5th) (current) (cryptic tweets) (cryptic tweets)

      Hey so uh I've already explained this on a few videos, but I've been keeping track of every time I see a very suspicious recurring cutout that looks a lot like The Stupendium, because I have a theory they'll be doing a collab soon based on the recurring cutout cameo (he shows up almost every video lately), here's the timestamp for his appearance this video: 2:33 Edit: the cutout is used again, in a more prominent position, in 3:07 but hey thats just a theory, a collab theory, thanks for understanding im a total nerd lol

      This is fantastic for the majority. They are getting MILLIONS because they invested earlier and the price has gone up jurastically. But this is actually really sad for the people that bet on gamestop dying. They litterally go from billionares to in DEPT because of a PRETTY SMART bet they did. Its extraordinary on one side, but tragic on the other. There going bankrupt and broke and i kinda feel bad

      1. Cesar Vera

      This saga isn't over! I hope you do a follow up video about the recent hedgefund fuckery we've been seeing!

    35. Franklin Gush

      I think the pandemic has taught people a big lesson, having one stream of income is not really a good idea cause your job doesn't secure your financial needs. The pandemic has really set out business-minded people from the rest that is why I'm so lucky to be among the investors trading with Mrs. Patricia Westbrook as her student it's been success and happiness since the beginning of my trades

      1. Laurence Greay

        wow! it's surprising to come across someone acquainted Mrs. Patricia Westbrook . She has really changed my life. Thanks to my brother who referred me to her, she's one of a kind.

      2. Gelia Banks

        Don't ever make the mistake of believing that market success has to come to you fast. Trade small, stay in the game, persist and eventually you'll reach a satisfying level of proficiency,Mrs. Patricia Westbrook always makes trading go perfectly good for me and am still trading with her.

      3. Greg William

        Most time having knowledge or insight about a particular activity can as well be a pleasing exercise ,The technical aspects of trading holds the key to understanding the market

      4. Ralph Hurley

        Bitcoin is the future, Investing in it now will be the wisest thing to do especially with the current price of 1 BTC now $55,199

      5. Hurley Moore

        I invest with Mrs Mrs Patricia Westbrook too, she charges a 20%commission on profit made after every trading session which is fair compare to the effort she put in to make huge profits.

      This is basically what happened: Billionaires have been manipulating the market through the use of their influence without anything stopping them from breaking the rules(playing dirty), while the common people can't do the same and can't complain since in the past most of the time big companies control the media, and now that the media allows almost everyone to express their thoughts and opinions, Common people manipulated the market the same thing billionaires have been doing for decades and it worked basically (Karma).

      Do you hear the people buy? Buying the stocks of greedy men? It is the sound of people who refuse to be the poor again. When the peasants learn their, game you can see fear deep in their eyes. So buy a share, and hold, and watch as the numbers rise! Will you join in our crusade to make the hedge funds taste defeat? We'll knock down all the walls until they're left with just the street! We'll fight and we'll race for our chance to all face the elite! Do you hear the people buy? Buying the stocks of greedy men? It is the sound of people who refuse to be the poor again. When the peasants learn their game, you can see fear deep in their eyes. So buy a share, and hold, and watch as the numbers rise! We've been stepped upon for years while these men just ignore the poor. Watch them try and plug their ears while we are breaking down their doors! Well we'll show them our might as we rise and we fight for no more! Do you hear the people buy? Buying the stocks of greedy men? It is the sound of people who refuse to be the poor again.
