AMC cinema chain saved / Reddit memes the stock market In: Cameras Posted February 5 On 2/3/2021 at 11:03 PM, Marcio Kabke Pinheiro said: Agree with you - I use a very unknown brokerage and even them are blocking AMC and GME eventually. And legal actions will be refuted in the sake of the "sistemic risk" and "liquidity of the markets" argument. I live in a country (Brazil) that make bails with this argument in each 3 to 4 years. The "club" is always protected. And be sure that when this story were not in the front pages anymores, new "market manipulations" laws will be created to make WSB foruns unlawful (here a Telegram forum was created with the same logic and the creators shut it down in 2 days after a direct threat from the CVM, the local SEC). Look at the end of the day we will have the same arguments. The brokerages will argue that they stopped people buying at incredibly stupid prices in order to protect them and the investors will argue that they should be allowed to be as stupid as they wish. But at what point does allowing people to do incredibly stupid things become incredibly stupid?
