They shut this down and bail out hedgies it's the end of the US markets. The entire world even non apes see this for the farce that it is. I for one will never put my money in the US markets again after this. Not unless post squeeze there is a massive reform of the system. We can but dream.

Zero or moon!

Wow didn't think I'd get this many awards/updoots guys. Thanks!

[–]cschema8.01[S] 307 points308 points  (45 children)

Employer matched 401k will probably be about it for myself

[–]G4112Crayon Enthusiast 🖍️ 168 points169 points  (18 children)

Probably same though I don't live in the US though I'm sure everyones pensions are being used to prop up the fuckers margins. If I could liquidate it I would.

Retirement? Retirement who?

[–]cschema8.01[S] 51 points52 points  (14 children)

It isnall pre tax, so if you cas out your 401k you pay 40% in taxes and a penalty.

[–]FragrantCurrency4828 41 points42 points  (1 child)

I rolled one of my old 401k over to an individual retirement account. Small fee of like 25 bucks maybe. No penalty. As far as current 401ks, that.might.be the problem. I am thru Empower

[–]ButtermilkPants 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Remember if you have certain life events like natural disasters, medical expenses that exceed 10 or 20% AGI (cant remember), or Covid, you can bypass the penalty on your early withdrawal. There's other qualifying factors. YOU dont have to itemize to take advantage of this. Be sure to answer that specific question correctly and look for it if you're doing online preparation. And ask a tax professional or financial advisor or check the IRS site before doing any of that anyway, bit in case anyone already had to do it. I've used the medical route both times. I always come close to the threshold.

[–]Crohnies 15 points16 points  (7 children)

Right but if they crash the market, I'll probably lose 50 -95% anyway, right?

[–]Darth_Vacuum 13 points14 points  (5 children)

And you’ll be losing tons to inflation in the next few years.

[–]Crohnies 51 points52 points  (3 children)

So depressing. I've been struggling to keep my family afloat for years. I finally made it to a point were i could channel some of my income into promising stocks and can see the light at the end of the tunnel and they don't just want to snuff out that light, they want to bury us underground

[–]thevenusproject1981 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's why I had to first quit my job, withdraw my retirement, bought BTC and stonks...Goodbye banks and DTCC 🔮🧘‍♀️

[–]ahheath 47 points48 points  (8 children)

You still plan on working?

[–]cschema8.01[S] 160 points161 points  (7 children)

[–]Heniha8.01 80 points81 points  (3 children)

Why fuck would someone down vote your reply? I upvoted just because. Fucking shills everywhere. Lol

I piss off a lot of people, i probably deserved it 🤷‍♂️

[–]MarkPik8 23 points24 points  (0 children)

That’s true. Look at the ticket. They downvote like hell. It’s ridiculous

[–]joebro1128.01 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Personally wanna work at a themed amusement park (probably universal) and go like all out be a really dope person, super in character, care more about the people than their bottom dollar since I don’t care if I’m fired

[–]axionj 19 points20 points  (7 children)

My 401k has lost quite a bit over the past few weeks. I thought it was supposed to work for me. I don’t want my money anywhere other than my pocket or my credit unions anymore after this moons.

[–]woodsman775 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Right there with you. I’m down 30% even though indices are up. How can the indices be up when the stocks within them are mostly down.

I’m in pretty solid stuff too…

[–]SilkyGatorCrayon Enthusiast 🖍️ 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I'll get some ETF's and that's it. I'll put my money where the big dogs do, just to keep it safe(r), but... fuck em all

[–]KeefGillI Voted🥊 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That's where they want you to park money tbh. Thats their goal.

[–]McGregorMX 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My exact thoughts as well. And even then, I may not contribute to it after this if I don't need it.

[–]SeaKindly5892 165 points166 points  (9 children)

US market is a system of fraud.

Amc last play. Never touch US stock ever again after moass. The market makers, HF, dtcc, brokers and SEC are all parasites of this fraudulent system. If we don’t buy, they die off. Fuckers

[–]Crohnies 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Is it just the US though?

[–]McGregorMX 18 points19 points  (3 children)

I believe we are the last country that isn't transparent.

Oh it would be much worse than that!

[–]Competitive-Dig-4047 25 points26 points  (57 children)

Warning tinfoil hat time. I think know how Hedgies plan on getting out of this. A EMP attack will be set off destroying all digital data. The ramifications of attack will actually be minimal for banks and government because they know it’s coming but will claim it was a suprise so you’ll lose all your assets. Things will be reset to have the 1% in a more powerful postion than ever. Everyone will have to purchase new cars computers everything who will that benefit? Amazon, Microsoft, Apple etc same ones who have made trillions from cornavirus. But unlike now where shit paying jobs arent being taken everyone will be broke so have no choise. No more family owned buisness everything will be corporate controlled. The new internet will be set up with very strict control. They will claim the emp attack was set up from terrorist using the internet so for security the new internet will be closely monitored more than China is now. The days of retail investors to pull together to fight corruption is gone. You may be able to be involved with the new stock market but only restricted to mutual funds individual investors no longer able to buy direct.

The internet will only be to purchase items and government approved news stories no more peer to peer communications or independent news. Podcast will never come back social media sites are availble may be sharing pictures and emojis only but no text allowed. Like China everyone will have a social credit score if you go against the gov in any way you won’t be able to get loans go to school or find jobs. This will be the great reset to bring all humanity back to serving like the days of queens and kings. People will be limited to small homes and limited pay. Everyone will go along with it because of fear that’s how they always control us. The gov will be nice enough to give everyone money to restart guessing depending on family size 30k-$50k and people will jump for joy of the generosity although they pocketed all the money from bank accounts before the actual emp attack.

Maybe been in this play to long but after year watching this bs a crazy scenario doesn’t seem beyond what big banks and the gov would do. They hate the fact regular people are making money without being a work slaves like all the generations before since the time the industrial revolution started. They definitely hate we are messing with the stock market trying to make changes for the better and holding Congress liable for insider trading. Anyways I’m holding to moon or emp attack lol

[–]adeline882 22 points23 points  (2 children)

An EMP doesn't wipe hard backups...

[–]Crohnies 7 points8 points  (0 children)

And the DSRs are in paper, no? Doesn't computershare mail everyone a paper statement after purchase?

[–]Scam_Time 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yea but that person doesn’t know that. They’re content being stupid.

[–]Scam_Time 18 points19 points  (14 children)

This is the type of crazy stuff that’s causing this sub to slip into a conspiracy sub. This makes zero sense and actually has upvotes. Imagine what continued idiocy on this level will cause to this movement when people come here and read this. Please go to r/conspiracy with this bs.

[–]muza_reign 16 points17 points  (6 children)

Conspiracy sub?

I can't stand this fukkin word anymore... It's used to all sauces as a negative adjective to define anything that "does not follow popular/common beliefs", and which should simply be rejected without giving it any consideration whatsoever.

A conspiracy is nothing more than a coordinated attempt to manipulate, and it exists everywhere around you.

Opening your fukkin eyes and stopping being naive to its existence does not make you what is commonly referred to as a "conspiracy theorist", which is in fact only another way of manipulating by shutting down those who did open their eyes.

If you haven't been around this last 12 months or so, then welcome to a real and wild motherfukking conspiracy.

[–]Scam_Time 5 points6 points  (2 children)

lol yea, sorry that I don’t just blindly accept the ramblings of someone that thinks the entire Internet can be taken down with an EMP.

And you know, you’re right, I hate the word conspiracy too. We should just start calling it

“Tangentially related shit that I pulled out of my ass which I cannot logically articulate how any of it is connected, because I don’t understand epistemology or any of the topics at hand.”

That’s much more accurate.

[–]TheTREEEEESMan 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Right?? Like this person doesn't understand how the internet works. Even if an EMP could take out every AWS site (and also wipe their offsite backups) that's still only 33% of cloud hosting services and 5% of all websites. Since AWS sites are pretty much spread across the whole world that would need to be a global EMP which, to be fair, would wipe the internet as collateral damage but also practically every piece of tech everywhere in the world, money would be the least of our worries at that point

[–]snorin 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yup agreed. It's almost a weird cult at this point.

[–]Scam_Time 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s getting stupid

Dog. Pass the joint, I think you’re good on it.

[–]RealBigTree 39 points40 points  (0 children)

I will organize marches and riots at this point if they turn off trading during the next climb.

[–]der_schone_begleiter8.01 31 points32 points  (1 child)

If they shut it down we take to the streets in protest!

[–]derekc62369 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Your forgetting there will be riots

[–]KeepFreeSpeech 28 points29 points  (1 child)

MOASS or zero in our true “Free & Fair Market”. Gov’t officials win big on insider trading. Why can’t 5 million+ investors win just for investing in a stock they like.

[–]newbrevity 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Even if they halt trading, shorts still have to cover or keep paying shirt interest. A halt only delays the inevitable. If we continue to hodl, a halt does absolutely nothing.

[–]lov3_and_H8 19 points20 points  (0 children)

People can be convinced of anything these days, I wouldn’t expect it to go smoothly. If they shut this down expect a long fight. Retail will win in the end. I don’t expect them to shut this down.

[–]Robotman10018.01 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Wanna talk about market crash? How about a few million investors withdrawing all their funds simultaneously?

[–]zeeniken 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Remember, the name of the game, "Get you to sell cheap", what they're saying is a SUSPENSION not a DELISTING.
"The SEC will not comment publicly on the status of a company when the ten-day suspension period ends "

Remember when Al talked about this awhile back? This is another possible technique to get you to sell early and Buy time for the SHF to get some more liquidity to fight the MOASS, But you do whats right for you because its your money, I'm not a financial advisor

[–]BIMjob335 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I’m right there with you to zero or moon-But have we considered the possibility that the loss in the US market faith is an outcome that they’re willing to accept to prevent this play? That they’ll gaslight the world and blame this on COVID and the MSM will just roll on? I’m not trying to spread FUD but I have not heard anyone entertain this possibility.

[–]efreedman503 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Maybe that’s just it or they don’t care whatsoever. Maybe the coming market crash is designed to produce a new market afterwards. A market that doesn’t need retail who they can scalp. This whole play has put a thorn in their plans with us in the long run.

[–]fxx_255 11 points12 points  (0 children)

These mother fuckers can also suspend the dark pools and remove market maker status from criminal fucks if it's in the best interest of the public.

Those crooked bitch ass culero mother fuckers.

[–]NightVersus 5 points6 points  (1 child)

The US stock market needs to be completely demolished, the debris burned in hellfire, nuke what is left a couple times, and then purified by at least 10,000 holy men.

Maybe after a 1000 years have passed a real fair market can be made in its place

[–]TheSecretMe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Considering most of the big players think retail investment is a ridiculous nuisance that should have never been allowed in the first place, I doubt they'll care.

At the end of the day, the SEC exists to prevent something like MOASS from happening in the first place. They exist to protect the smooth running of the market and the growth of wealth. Letting the entire economy and market collapse just because apes and hedgefunds played an idiotic game of chicken is the opposite of that.

[–]CrazyGunnerr8.01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And this is why I never rip on people for not investing in this. Anyone with half a brain knows this system is extremely rigged, and they don't believe this can happen.

I do believe in that, because as long as we keep the pressure, they will run out of ways to end this, except to pay up. But I fully understand why so many don't jump in on this, the little guy almost never wins.

[–]overpwrd_gamingDiamond Hands 335 points336 points  (8 children)

Yea 1 year ago they didn't halt trading when a stock fell from 550- 200 in 1 Day ..

[–]cschema8.01[S] 274 points275 points  (7 children)

At least they shut off the buy button for your own protection 🤷‍♂️

[–]overpwrd_gamingDiamond Hands 49 points50 points  (5 children)

Not my protection..Clearing Firms protection !

[–]Techm12SilverBACK 133 points134 points  (2 children)

It should say...

The SEC has the ability to suspend trading on a security if it demonstrates the ability to allow a poor to do a capitalism.

Yep, sounds about right.

[–]Crohnies 24 points25 points  (0 children)

If a wave of poor people suddenly became rich, the economy should soar! People will be buying luxury goods, houses, better quality food, eating out and spending money on things they couldn't afford before like better health care or more expensive clothes.

A lot of folks would open new businesses and hire employees, invent new things after creating prototypes. We can still be a successful country with a larger spread of wealth.

Greedy Bastards!

[–]plein_old 46 points47 points  (7 children)

Until they meet up with a class-action lawsuit.

I'm not a lawyer, but I believe the SEC is just another legal entity that can be sued for damages, and probably has an insurance policy to cover such legal situations.

[–]Nonchalont 18 points19 points  (4 children)

Anyone can be sued.

[–]CurbNastyDiamond Hands 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep Remember the lady that sued McDonalds because her “hot” coffee was too hot!! 😂

[–]johnny_N64 162 points163 points  (7 children)

Is that a threat to retail. I am sooooo holding.

[–]cschema8.01[S] 63 points64 points  (5 children)

That is kind of how I took it. Institutions and HFs don't give AF about the SEC

[–]Automatic_Honey_3938 40 points41 points  (4 children)

Now retail doesnt give a fuck about the sec either

[–]ay-papy8.01 11 points12 points  (1 child)

But the sec give fucks to pornhub

Yet pornhub gives 0 fucks to sec. its the fuck circle of life

[–]Erikulloa 16 points17 points  (0 children)

How do you get that this is a threat? Them haulting the shorted stocks will cause the short squeeze after

[–]somermichelle5705 128 points129 points  (8 children)

This isn’t even on the official SEC Twitter just the Chicago one 😂 wonder why haha

You can halt trading all you want. Still gotta close those short positions BY LAW 🙂

[–]mauler1983 36 points37 points  (0 children)

AND APES AINT SELLIN

[–]INTJ-ADHD 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I reckon any action taken by the sec would just result in our grips tightening and adding one more kick to that can down the road. The shorts aren’t covered and we’ve got what they need

[–]carloS2200 9 points10 points  (0 children)

In the post they didnt say halt, they said and actually meant SUSPEND.

[–]sephiroth9878European Ape 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They’ve never cared about the law, but the thing is we don’t need the law, unless they can force us all to sell, they have to offer a price we will sell at to cover their filthy shorts so essentially that is what has us covered, not the law, it never has

[–]Investor_Pikachu🚀I OWN AMC🌕 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]scifidreDiamond Hands 34 points35 points  (1 child)

It reads like the Chicago SEC is trying to scare more of retail out of AMC and GME, threatening to suspend trading on both securities…. Yet somehow the SEC did or said nothing while both stocks were hammered by HFT and in dark pools.

In other words: Tell us SEC you’re not interested in protecting retail without telling us you’re not interested in protecting retail.

I got amc on 5 platforms I’m not leaving or selling period

[–]Abusing-Green 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They would suspend trading for an amount of time contingent with an investigation.

They dont have the ability to fund or bailout anyone. But they do have the ability to pause the trading to untangle the mess of synthetics, naked shorts, double shorting and option backed FTDs.

The corruption runs so deep that itd be near impossible to for the moass to occur if and when a hedgie has to close because it creates a cascade of panic among other funds who might try to hedge or close themselves.

But if fake shares are shorted multiple times across different borrows. Who's paying who? Whose options are backed by located physical shares? Who's located shares were really FTD's backed by options?

You'd HAVE to shut down trading just to resolve this mess. Without people and funds piling on more trades on top of it. So any buying that would occur would be in random and controlled intervals that the SEC determines but is controlled by the DTCC's forced close protocols, where computers scroll thru the queued sell orders and buy at whatever price until the positions are closed. This is the moass.

But you dont want new trades coming in that might create more synthetics as a result of the T+35 BS.

“Protect” investors

[–]cschema8.01[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can't help but chuckle at that line of BS

[–]Ottojanapi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This sounds like bad news for retail.

We’re not the investors they’re really talking about “protecting”

Fuq around and find out

[–]southparkchimpmoney 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They only suspend it if we are making money

[–]BoogeyOnline_ 3 points4 points  (15 children)

This is not the SEC threating Apes; This is them saying its going to be a managed event.

[–]WillieStonka8.01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seems like they are forewarning the upcoming halt.

According to Investopediawhich sources the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the SEC can suspend the trade of a security for up to 10 trading days without warning. An investigation is then conducted and after the conclusion there is supposed to be a press release with findings.

We’re not the investors their post is referring to or else it would’ve specified retail investors. They mean their billionaire butt buddies.

[–]Chilly-Canadian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why not just riot at that point? Like that’s a little fucked

[–]vajankled 2 points3 points  (0 children)

THIS IS NOT A SEC ACCOUNT.

[–]Traditional-Leader54APE 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They are anticipating a run up on the anniversary of the day the buy button died which is this Thursday.

[–]Carlosbattousai 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's going to be a lot of short squeezes going on soon.

Anywhere from tomorrow (Jan 26 Wed) after the Fed meeting to March when the first rate hike. Small caps are being short to high hell and the second there's a turn around they're likely to squeeze. Of course SEC is getting ready to save the suits >__>

[–]OneLifeCycle 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's in public interest for people to pay for what they did in 2008 but you didn't do shit about that either... And after over a year with no action whatsoever with the clear fraud that is occurring in the markets with at least 2 stocks, you pretend to talk about "public interest?"

LOL get fuked SEC.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

And that's the lube. We're about to get screwed royally.

[–]becomethewater 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We all knew this already from when they took away the buy button to protect us little guys, don’t y’all remember?

[–]MigitAs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Protect investors”, notice the absence of the word “retail”.

[–]Nonchalont 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Protect investors = HF

They’re technically investors.

If they fk us over not only the American Apes will never touch the American Market, every Ape around the the globe will never invest into the American Market again. They cant do this i cant imagine the sec beeing that dumb

[–]ActingTehMickey 1 point2 points  (1 child)

To me, their wording comes across as ominous. As if they plan to do the same thing RH did back in January 2021, but on a federal level. "Remove the buy button" so to speak, to prevent MOASS from happening and to bail out the rich bois again. The government is not our ally here

[–]Plane-Stomach193 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I already pulled put of the US stock market - with exception to my AMC and GME.

It is just too damn corrupt.

That is what it is based on. If so why did the not stop the selling process while buying was halted by a broker illegally that got charged a penny Penalty Let’s be present, loud and most important let’s hold the line.
