    Got out at 115 bought in at 36. Not bad for a little punt. Looks like it might rise again though now until the next bit of profit taking.

    Alpine4 and Fuelcell energy represent my largest gains in my risk account at the moment.

    I'd set a stop loss of 115 for GME, looks like it triggered even though the actual price never actually went that low. Guess there's a hefty spread.

    Ah well, still made around 20% which i can live with, even though it could've been a lot higher. Not risking getting back in now though.

    GME is crazy. I've been from £-1200 upto + £5800 and back down to 0 in the space of about hour and half.

    Lots of BB selling going on at $20 per share. Dropped back a bit now.

    Looking like NOK is their next favorite at $4 a share

    I was dabbling in GME for a bit of fun. My sell limit was executed at $150 which is looking pretty fortunate at the minute but who knows, this stock is all over the place! I think trading has been halted 3 times already today.

    Bought back into GME at 90, hoping it pumps up a bit further again!

    WSB has a Discord (one big hot mess) but plenty of people advising to buy AMC, BB and NOK at the moment.

    Yep.

    S&P just fell off a cliff. I use that as my market barometer. Gaining back steady now.

    Not sure what happened.

    Been seeing it for a few days now. Heaps of other players trying to pump other stocks but NOK, AMC, BB, GME and PLNT keep coming up.

    NOK still a decent entry point for anyone with a grand or two to flutter.

    I'm throwing 2k at it to see what happens

    Cheers, might throw some in. I suppose if you check it often you see a pattern. It hurts my eyes too much! My T212 is my pot for random punts so might stick some in.

    So far i've been riding the GME volatility. Buy ~90, sell ~105 is proving to be quite profitable for me so far. Just waiting for that inevitable collapse to ruin me :p

    I finally bought 2 shares in GME. Hoping they work out somehow.

    One conclusion I've come to is that I've no idea how H&L works. I submitted £200 for the shares. They seem to have bought them for about £150. Now it seems that I can't withdraw the other £50. No idea why. Probably should have thought about this a bit harder before investing!

    Was up 2 grand today on GME, then it vanished. :p I predict $200 a share end of week though.

    Tell me about it. There is no sense to gme today and Friday other than enough people pumped it. Nothing is based on performance of what gme actually is achieving
