    I have a question. Since this whole story broke I have basically understood how “taking a short position” on a stock is supposed to work. Borrow stock, sell it to lower the price, buy back at the lower price and return to the original owner. At least that’s what has been explained by most news outlets and late show hosts. Kinda makes sense except for this one glaring “plothole”. Why would the original owner ever agree to lend their stock? They must know, that what the hedge fund will give them back will then be worthless. Why wouldn’t they just sell the stock at the “non shorted” price or hold on to it in the hopes that it rises.
    Its like my buddy asking to borrow my car so he can sell it to a destruction derby event, buying the wreck back after the race for a couple dollars and then hand me the keys back with a smile saying: What? I gave you your car back didn’t I?

    Aluminum was the first name. Aluminium was more Latin so it was changed.

    Wow! It is okay for funds to bunch things together, but if little guys want to discuss a stock – the sky is falling!

    The reason that Robin Hood stopped the trade with Game Stop is different. Listen to the economist for instance that made a very nice piece about it. It is due to the delay of the trade to materialize. Until then Robin hood has to put some money into the jar. But Robin Hood didn’t have that much money, because there was too much trade.

    Robinhood pulled the plug on GME trading because the clearing corporation made them put up more money and Robinhood didn’t have it so they couldn’t let people trade.
