Fuck 212, trying to pull the rug out from under everyone because it isn’t going the way of their hedge fund mates. Cunts

Its hilarious that these hedge funds are getting destroyed, but don't be the noob that buys GME with your life savings when it tops.

This will end, and soon. You won't get your money back.

Absolutely, it's gambling, something to make the day go by quicker.

So true
You're entering the end of the pyramid scheme and your returns will be marginal if you actually manage to get out in time
Always do your research! you might make money on this trade but you'll definitely lose money over time listening to random tips/get rich quick schemes on crypto/sports betting/fx tipsters on instagram

I made over £25k around 2010 when I was about 20 years old when rockhopper discovered oil and the share price jumped from the 30 to 40p I bought them at to over £4.50.

I rolled a lot of the profit in to chariot oil hoping for them to discover gas/oil and ended up losing about 10k.

I have been buying and selling Koss stock, the people who make those ugly but reliable headphones, for the last two days, and have somehow made over £500

Market's gone mad.

BB got to $14, was a good sell if you purchased prior to all this.

yeah it was always gonna come down faster than it went up! profit of thousands of % is too attractive, as soon as a few start selling its like a chain reaction.

Didnt have the balls as I wasnt confident that was the peak as they were saying on the subreddit that they were all holding out for $1k.

once those restrictions lift it'll probably kick off again, too many people emotionally invested now
