Has Wallstreetbets become the most influential internet gathering(incl. the most influential subreddit) in the world?
The flow of capital determines numerous functions and entities of our life. Everything from the next great innovative startup to the most boring business being conducted.
Wallstreetbets seems to have become strong enough with the power of market makers, algo traders, hedge funds, margins, options traders and passive investment bubble to be in a position to influence the flow of capital to it’s preferred stocks.
This would inevitably lead to companies and innovators wanting to exploit this glitch and generate wealth in the process.
Right now, as it is, wallstreetbets seems to be the most influential internet gathering in the world with billions of capital flowing towards the direction the subreddit determines worthy.
If this trend continues, we would be looking at an investment bubble that gets created only at certain parts of our economy, active fund managers will also try to chase the wallstreetbets crowd and price discovery would become impossible.
There could be significant arbitrage opportunities in the comparatively reasonably priced securities, but if the market has no demand for it, then this whole opportunity becomes useless(T anyone?).
Of course the FEDs decision to pump borrowers and dump savers; keeping interest rate low to create liquidity in the main street using QE which has proved itself to be grossly ineffective and a mere certificate to keep zombie companies afloat etc are the main drivers behind us degenerates flocking to the stock market.
Small businesses being completely wrecked, laid off workers, extremely high housing price; there seems to be no other alternative for us other than to play the game and sing along the song.
All those things have created the monstrous giant that is wallstreetbets today. It’s influence is being felt by the market insiders and they are feeling jealous.
Every day, news after news is coming out that some stock is popping for no reason. "Excuse me, sir, have you looked at the underlying reason", I would say.
Wallstreetbets has no doubt created a bubble in some stocks in the market. But that doesn’t stop us. If you 100% your money and the stock then decreases 20%, you are still up 60%.
All this said, let me finish my masturbation first, about to…
