Game Theory: GameStop Made MILLIONAIRES Overnight... Now What?

SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ►

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!

And hey, who better to invest in than a game dev who watches analytical videos about what makes Video Game, Movies, and Big Food so successful for productive leisure? Eh? Eh? Well, worth a shot.

    I like the part where they admit they "cut the share of wealth of young people in half in the last 30 years" in passing and didn't particularly think that it might be motive for us to game the system to take their money. And by "us" I mean people who aren't me. I wish I was savvy enough to get in on this

    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.”
