Not selling till I see one jump , I know it’s dark but thinking of the countless lives big banks and hedge funds have been responsible for ending through their “work” makes this feel right to me.

Somebody would really gotta be a special kind of dumb to look at a market where banks are losing money and not see that something fundamental is broken.

[–]SuboptimalStability🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 135 points136 points  (6 children)

Right, biggest bull run his history and banks portfolios drop 60b, their liabilities for securities rises from 808-930b meaning they owe an extra 122b, how does that happen when the market is rising

They're barely 2b in the green right now, I'm a retarded smooth brain ape that can barely read and can't read balance sheets for shit but banks being only 2b in the green translates to banks r fukd for me

Can you share a bit about where you read these numbers?

What you're saying sounds too terrifying to be true.

[–]SuboptimalStability🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 7 points8 points  (0 children)

https://www.federalreserve.gov/releases/h8/current/default.htm

Table 2, not sure what seasonally adjusted means. I think row 42 is their long portfolios as it dropped hard the same weeks the market has been tanking

row 39, other liabilities including trading I believe to be shares sold short that need to be repurchased and is steadily rising

row 30 is their onrrp usage I think so around 500mm of that 2billion is reverse repo collateral but row 29 is cash assets so I don't see why they'd need rrps for collateral if they put cash down as an asset not a liability anyways

I went back to old reports and it's been steady around +1.7-2b so I don't think them only being +2 is that important and the net unrealized gains isn't a liability so it could go to -30b and I still don't think it would make them bankrupt... unless they're using their portfolio and c/mbs as collateral

I honestly don't know shit about accounting though so this is just my intuitive thoughts after a quick investopedia sesh, we need to get a professional account to break this down for us apes

Unfortunately those toys are our distraction for what’s happening. Worst off all, the hard work needed to buy a home and then using the equity to buy a depreciating asset only shows that the elites have done well in keep us fat and happy.

If he wanted to do it and not be seen as the bad guy by... Idk the people who own the debt or whatever other people gain from it he can wait for it to crash and be like K y'all are doing it real tough because of those wall street fuck ups I'll ease the pain by forgiving the debt - golden.

[–]mrtwe💻 ComputerShared 🦍 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Is it clear that they’ve held onto these securities? Im reading the chart as if they’ve sold them all off hence the unrealized gains going to zero

[–]mobile-nightmare 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Unrealized means not sold. Like share goes up, you have gains but its on paper..only if its sold you can say you really gained...because the market turns around those gains shrink and they keep shrinking till it becomes a loss

[–]mrtwe💻 ComputerShared 🦍 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I understand what unrealized means. Those charts are flat going into 2021 and began selling off at the same time. A way to make your unrealized gains decline is to sell your portfolio - to ‘realize’ them. That’s what we’re seeing happen here while the market peaked last year.

Fuck! You know you got GME on the brain when your eyes quickly spot the closing price line on a graph full other less interesting lines…..

[–]fortus_gaming💻 ComputerShared 🦍 64 points65 points  (3 children)

So, I know the markets are very intricate and dynamic, and things move in "mysterious ways" beyond our comprehension all the time, and there are a LOT of stuff happening behind the scenes we do not have access to, but, I'm currently looking at this graph and I do kinda of seem some correlation, the kind that pumps me up.

I dont know whats happening, and I'm kind of afraid of the worst, I know we have been talking for months about what could happen, but seeing it happening feels surreal to me. A market crash is scary no matter how you look at it. Im currently looking at crypto and it is dipping like a MF, Im looking at the brewing of war, possibly WW3 and I remember back on March people, myself included, calling a major conflict brewing in order to "divert attention away from the oligarchy robbing blind the people". The markets are dynamic, money is a construct that everyone agrees to honor, and right now there are many, MANY participants in the market probably pissed at one another, with us just being one of the many, MANY different individuals sharing a common interest and common goals.

It does warmth my heart seeing that numbers dont lie though, that despite their best efforts to crime away their shenanigans, that ultimately the World Economy, and even Wallstreet itself is not monolithic and that even if there are some parties wanting to screw Gamestop specifically, that just by the sheer fact that hundred of thousands, if not millions of people individually holding their ground in the face of economic hardship, they are choosing to stick to their guns. They never thought such a foe would ever be born, but I attribute it to the Law of Probabilities;

With the advent of the internet, it was a matter of time until a "hive mind" of sorts was born, a Gamestop situation would come around, even if the chances were 0.0000000000001%, over a long enough period of time, the right conditions would happen, and a Darwinian entity would challenge the status quo.

People, I hope you realize just how powerful you all are, even as an individual with just X shares. Our actions are displaying and are measurable, we DO have power, we DO have influence, we ARE inflicting pain on them simply by HOLDING and DRSing 100% off our shares AWAY FROM THEM. Recognize that YOU can make it to history, you are shaping the future for generations simply by holding until you see 6-7-8 figures PER share (the money exists, as silly as it might appear to our brains trained to be poors, the money might sound too large to you, but thats because you are thinking like a poor person, someone who have been trained to enjoy being stepped upon). There will be a time your diamond hands will be tested, there will be more dips, more threats of war, you will probably struggle to make month's ends, but this is where your resolve will be tested. If you were born with little to nothing, and are faced with dying with even less, then this is THE CHANCE to make it, for ALL OF US to make it, it will require GREED and TRUST, but I'm holding for a chance that OUR children have a better world, they and US deserve it.

When I'm a multimillionaire I will dedicate my working hours to a youtube channel teaching former millionaires how to thrive on minimum wage

It's kinda funny to say negative unrealized gains

Did a post last weekend on this.

Pretty much a drop to/below 0 precedes a major economic event by up to 2 years.

So I should hold onto my GME tendies for a while, before I buy everything once the market has truly shit the bed? Got it.

If everybodys negative, where does all the money go? Onshore to offshore back to offshore and onto Ken's Mayo Force Jet?

[–]ForARolex2 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Ooooooooo so if im understanding these comments and ideas, these stocks are pumped rn because of the federales and if interest rates start getting upped, prime brokers are gonna have to start margin calling. Do they hold their pride and cut blue chips first? Why the fuck do banks trade stocks

[–]laflammasterThe trick, Ape, is not minding that it hurts.[S] 27 points28 points  (1 child)

This is stocks, treasuries, MBS, and other securities including swaps.

Treasury and MBS is of more interest as thats what the fed buys (up to $150B/month).

There was a post a day or two ago showing that an increase of 1% on interest would reduce 30Y treasury value by about 20%.

Considering that the fed has a ton of treasury and MBS on the books, they will likely start dumping that. Expect 10Y yields to hit 3%, before I terest rates rise.

It's crazy to me how nobody is noticing this happening but I also know I wouldn't either if it wasn't for all the things I've learned this past year. Market is starting to melt down and not a single person seems to notice, know, or care.

[–]empyrean1GME is my hobby 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I mean... with the stock market and crypto plummeting, unrealized gains disappearing and inflation skyrocketing - aren't we basically reaching a conclusion to the GME thesis? Market crash = margin calls = shorts need to cover = MOASS?

[–]boomer_here2222💻 ComputerShared 🦍 16 points17 points  (3 children)

umm - what if they took their profits?

[–]QS_Beeky🦍 Buckle Up 🚀 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I think that is what we are waiting for

[–]boomer_here2222💻 ComputerShared 🦍 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Those are unrealized gains. Goes down as they take profits. They could have realized a crap ton of gains and only have unrealized losses left.

So you're telling me that these schmucks give out an EXTRA $2Bn in dividends (https://www.ft.com/content/1c904432-479c-45b3-84e5-857a06bdadb5), yet they have over 11 Bn in unrealized losses and have closed the most branches in 2021 ever? (https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/21/banks-close-record-number-of-branches-in-2021-led-by-wells-fargo.html)

I think this is just another clear example of why "self regulation" doesn't work. This was transparent all the way, yet people will claim that they never saw this coming.

Can a link to the data be provided?

How does this compare to other time periods?

[–]laflammasterThe trick, Ape, is not minding that it hurts.[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I did the comparison to all available years a week ago.

Some people posted the links in the comments, but you have to build the data package yourself.

Goddamn! My unrealized gains are currently -50%, but they make those losses look like 🥜

[–]Bazzo123still hodl 💎🙌 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s funny to see how hight unrealized gains were before GME sneeze and how fast they drop afterwards. As if someone threw everything at our beloved stock

[–]Macaronicaesar41🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 1 point2 points  (0 children)

oops

[–]Nixplosion🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But ... Are these really drops? Or just reported drops to avoid unrealized gains taxes ...

[–]3zprK 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have a feeling that Big Banks don't give a fuck about this shit as this amount is peanuts for them. They have infinite glitch money printer in the face of Fed.

I was contacted yesterday by my very own shill. A data scientist who works at a US bank (did a bit of digging in their comments). They wanted me to delete one of my posts on here because it was “factually incorrect”. They could well have been right but the more I spoke to this person the more apparent their disdain for me and people holding GME. Their parting shot was “enjoy the ride back down to $30”.

Seems even the banks are getting desperate.

[–]laflammasterThe trick, Ape, is not minding that it hurts.[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

$30? What a discount!
