42 - Wall Street vs. Main Street: Game Stop Edition

February 1, 2021

Game Stop? AMC? The Short Squeeze of the century? Quite a lot of information has been flowing and crazy stock movements have been happening this week. I am releasing this week’s episode early because I want the information to be out before the market opens on Monday so you can get the information you need as soon as possible.

This week I talk about Game Stop and the market mechanics behind its meteoric rise from $30 per share to almost $400 per share. I talk about how this is happening, the forces behind the movements, and the potentially illegality of the shenanigans of all involved!
