    How old are you?

    I’ve heard old people whining about younger people for the past 40 years.

    I consider them knobs. Are you a knob?

    Firstly Shiney if you actually read my post you would see that I said that the comfort seeking stemmed from the parents, not from “young people”so you are wrong in your accusation. Secondly using personal insults against other members drops you out of worthwhile participation in discussions here. You never used to make sniping posts like this in the past.

    And to perhaps show that bad parenting happens In every generation here are three observations from a close friend who teaches the young children of Millennial parents at an exclusive Eastern Suburbs school in Sydney. She teaches kindergarten and first grade.

    She said that incoming classes of children starting their first day are full of kids do not have the motor skills to hold a pencil or a pair of scissors.

    that many children start school and do not have the ability to walk on uneven surfaces. They have never done it before.

    And finally she said that the kids are pretty good, it’s the parents that are monsters to deal with.

    so maybe nothing changes after all!

    only silverstackers could take a trading thread for a second time and turn it into a racialist, gernerationalist shitfight.

    anyone care how they took down a hedge fund or are you all too busy with the pissing contest?

    @Shaddam IV, Your close friend reminds me of all the whingers I’ve heard over the last 40 years moaning about every up and coming generation.

    Tell her to get a different job coz she’s part of the problem. It’s not her job to turn up and impart her values on others.

    the bottle neck is at the DTC
    so when you know the mecanics
    the flow is well organised, then all jammed up, apple, pineaple, strawberries jams
    DTC asked for 1:1 before T+2 settlements
    in China T+1, there is a degree of difference there
    hedge fund borrow to stay out with both feet in the water, people in the network try to pull the bad guy out
    the two forces, fight hard, but after some time...
    the orderly market doctrine will be pull out and be read out loud

    but so far did the hedge fun run for cover ?
    when there is 120% short sold, then it just take 1 shares to push the price up $100 each time, next 1 share trying to sell +200, the buyer would just take that, the last price is higher, what appear on the short guy's book, is 120% x -200 etc
    they would need to top up for a margin call, when they do a 10x leverage, the faster they need to top up, if they try to cover, then the price is even higher
    (this is what most people call madness in crowds)

    the turn of the tides, is not in familiar feel to relate to lol

    His mother, Elaine, confirmed in a brief phone call that her son was Roaring Kitty.

    "I'm proud," she said, before hanging up.

    Would have to agree, with that, tech is making things worse, especially with young kids and motor skills and lack of outside participation, from what im seeing from other parents, parents who spent allot of their lives behind a screen as kids now creating kids who are spending allot of their time behind a screen. not good at all



    well its completely on topic a large portion of those participating in WSB is they have an issue with a particular generation who they believe are rich and greedy. Its an anti wall street and anti boomer attack.
    So talking generational problems is actually inline with WSB

    WSB is about spoilt little shits raised by screens cracking a tantrum on mass scale, and only a small number of them will actually make any money from it, likely the people they are trying to beat will be the ones who make the money because guess what? wallstreet hobknobs can also Use reddit to find out what WSB is backing and use that against them lol.

    they took down a billion dollar hedge fund with more to follow, what did you take down this week? i took a screen away from my kid, lucky you can still coordinate taking down your pants.

    anyway, can we please take this back on topic? or just kill this thread and accept silverstackers is not capable of any kind of rational discussion. i was plannig on doing a how to guide to long and short these new traders but am losing the will.

    Please do. This thread is genuinely intended for rational discussion (with allowance for slightly humoristic undertone).
    Everyone else, please keep your sh*t together; there's zero reason to feed the trolls.

    WSB is about finding wildly risky ways to trade for big rewards, especially options. They are not all millennials either, there are X's and boomers that are genuine members to. What they stand united in is there disdain for the establishment that has rigged markets for years and ripped us all off, you boomers included. Markets like silver, interest rates, equities, commodities globally. the same types that caused the 08 crash and faced no consequences even though they bankrupted entire nations. The funds that unfairly target companies with fake news after taking out massive short positions on them like Citron and Melvin. The ones that feed and profit off insider trading.

    WSB are a wild bunch sure, they use language that few on SS will understand. They take risks that would make 99% of the population sick and unable to sleep at night. They are many things many will find uncouth or unpleasant but there is one thing they are that you cannot refute, and thats with the short squeeze they have identified with GME & AMC, they are bloody right and taking the rightfully owed pound of flesh out of wall street.

    If you naysayers knocking WSB had any balls you would have joined them and bought in and been up 1500% as well. DFV that first bought this to the subs attention caught on a year ago and put his money where his mouth is, he has turned a initial 53k bet into 47 million on paper as of Wednesday this week. And has $14.3M cashed out so far in the past month as the calls were expiring. He has freed a lot of members from the debt slavery they were trapped in, restored hundreds of millions in value to pension funds, helped people in the US access and pay for expensive medical treatments, pay off student loans and the list goes on. He is a fucking legend.

    Knock them all you like but the fact is they caught the hedge fund boomers with their pants down and now wall street is crying foul because Wall Street only likes the game when they are the ones winning. A bit like Casino owners. Happy to let you play when you keep losing but boot you out as soon as you get on a serious heater.

    Think what you like and do what you will but the genie is out of the bottle now, good luck getting it back in.
