The Securities and Trade Fee (SEC) is warning traders in opposition to well-liked “meme shares.” But, they’ve gone too far by providing direct buying and selling recommendation. Particularly, the SEC produced a video (see beneath) about GameStop (GME) that has retail traders reeling.

GameStop was actually buying and selling in risky territory throughout Q1 2021. A gaggle of on-line retail traders promoted the inventory and allegedly have been partially accountable for inflicting Melvin Capital hedge fund to lose 53% of its capital in January. The brief squeeze appears to be extremely exaggerated and the 4 largest asset managers on the planet owned 39% of GameStop on the time. Those that traded correctly, or just acquired fortunate, profited off of the volatility, however, clearly, that isn’t beneficial for the novice investor.

The issue right here is that the SEC is making an attempt to discourage the retail investor to guard the hedge funds. The SEC shouldn’t be telling the general public which shares to keep away from and I don’t consider the shareholders of GME or different “meme shares” will probably be pleased with this recommendation.
