    Every previous peak has been 'beaten' to date.

    The previous hype took it to 20k gbp. This peak 30k gbp.

    I burned out of crypto a long time ago. FOMO and greed made me play stupid but now i'm wiser I don't play at all. I'm more interested in not losing than winning now.

    It's pump and dump but people should be allowed to lose. Depends on their ts&cs I guess. If its execution only should they be 'protecting customers'

    ****

    I put a stop on my GME at $200 to protect myself which would at least see some profit and T212 did not execute until it was $122.63 so I've pretty much made **** all over the past 2 weeks

    AMC is down so I'm currently at a loss of £169 because of these brokers stopping new BUY orders. Will keep that and see what happens there.

    I am beyond livid as I was planning on selling at $500 so I could do some work on the house but T212 and other brokers put a stop to that.

    Unbelievable.

    Just pure blind faith - backed up with 2 days worth of "trading" experience - just look at the comments below from WSB
    • Sweet discount! Just got my first 4 shares @ $203, looking forward to the start of the squeeze tomorrow
    • Holding. When I said hold till $1000 or zero I meant it
    • Here come the short covers.
    • Do not sell! Do yall not understand how a squeeze works? Even at this price we still have the advantage!!!
    • Just because nobody offers to buy my house doesn’t mean it’s worth 0 dollars. As soon as people return to the market the price will go up. What you’re seeing is a fake price.

    I was 15 and way too stupid to notice this happening. What's the context with VW?

    Last significant win was on celo coin. Bought in, waited for the pump. Sold at 30 percent, it went further but didn't go in again.
    Cashed out. Now picked another coin I think is due to moon.

    Time will tell! :D

    Like I said earlier, a lot of people getting their eyes opened to how rigged it is, this could be the start of something else

    Even in here I was being told I didn't understand the situation.

    From what I understand, this stop on buying is on Citadel.

    I read that something like 40% of the trades on the US market are routed through Citadel, and they own Robinhood. They also just had to invest $3billion into Melvin to bail them out of this whole debacle.

    In other words, people using a platform *owned* by Citadel, are responsible for Melvin being pummelled, which was then causing Citadel to have to invest billions into them to stop the bleeding. It's hardly a surprise they used their position to put the stoppers on Robinhood. If they let it go any further, they were going to cost themselves billions more.

    For those in the know - are there are any decent virtual trading/investing platforms that the extremely risk averse amongst us could have a play around with for a month or two to get a feel for things?

    Or would you be better off diving into live accounts but just messing about with disposable pub money to start with?

    I've sold, but the shares are still showing in my account and I haven't received notification that I've sold. When I click 'sell' again it tells me I have to buy it first.

    I have no idea if I'm in or out!

    lol
    Worth reading, it was similar but different. End result the same, huge ramp up and then a rapid decrease. VW were the most valuable company in the world at 1 point.

    If the platforms have stopped retail investors from buying, then who's buying up all the shares they're allowing them to sell?

    I assume it's the institutions but you'd have to question why they'd be buying right now.

    Fair play. Probably longer than me It was just the comment earlier didn't mention anything on the short squeeze.

    Back over $200 now. Going to be fun watching it play out and all the repercussions over the next few weeks.
