I traded GME last week with great success but saw the writing on the wall. GET OUT NOW!
Today, I was trading AG and GOLD. No problem right? After all, SLV was the Reddit target today and all of a sudden TD Ameritrade pulled it from Think or Swim platform so I settled for AG as a safe bet with a good company that mines and retails silver. Good right?
I had purchased it ‘Pre hours’ and after a while I could see it was going to go down before it headed back north so I went to sell it and take my profits and then buy back at a lower price with more shares. (Best laid plans)🤦♂️
TD wouldn’t allow my sell to go through and I was stuck. Then strangely, my Xfinity went down 5 minutes before market until 10 minutes into after open so I couldn’t see the prices or trade at all yet.
I tried my cellular access as the Xfinity was strangely down and all TD was not accessible until then either. (Coordinated)?
Once I finally got out AG at a HUGE loss, TD cut my ability to trade to 50% of my cash position which had gone up significantly from last week and so now I can only trade about 45% of my cash positions now. Wait, what? It’s my cash with no margin. If I lose it all it’s no skin off their backs.
But wait, that wasn’t sufficient to destroy the price and shareholders! Think or Swim has been delaying my orders by about 30 seconds to a minute before they go through.
As any trader knows, seconds are an eternity in stocks when they are volatile.
Steve Varney from fox BUSINESS news (I won’t watch the other, ever) says Elizabeth Warren wants to punish us little guys for making this money stealing from large hedge funds that ‘steal our money’ everyday.
A guest on Varney said these poor hedge funds are helping the markets by protecting the little guy by keeping the prices where they should be. What?
GameStop was shorted 140% of the company’s shares. 140%! In laymen’s term you sold a house you didn’t own and then you want to buy it back for a dollar. That wasn’t working so you sold 40% of the same house again.
And these hedge funds think that is protecting us?
Anyone else see that the masters are trying to put down the slave uprising?
