TODAY, A WAR over the value of video game retailer GameStop’s stock has caused what market guru Jim Cramer called “the squeeze of a lifetime.” Howling with glee along the way, traders on the chaotic and obscene subreddit WallStreetBets helped push GameStop’s stock price up from $20 on January 11 to $73 after traditional analysts deemed the stock a clunker.

While this isn’t the first time WallStreetBets has contributed to a surprising market shake-up, GameStop’s unlikely trip to the moon is unique in both its velocity and the allegations of harassment and hacking that accompanied it.

I support the free market. I’m against government intervention. And buying stocks is a risk.

There has to be regulation to avoid manipulation of the market and information about market decisions. In other words, the risk should be about the risk you take on the success of the business not a risk in the shenanigans going on wall street.

I know that this is free market. I still think it represents an extremist perspective from the online community concerning free market trading. I think it’s just another example of an extreme and pointless action that seems to be appearing in our culture.

And doesn’t this violate free market forces? This is like a government demanding something be priced a certain way but the body deciding is this Wall Street Bets group. They’re disrespecting the science of free market forces.

GameStop is an aberration. It’s extremely difficult to artificially make a stock go up. If it was that easy, they’d be doing it all the time.

hope to see more stories like this for those who succeeded from this. while it is a risk people are free to do what they want with their own money.

I know somebody who leveraged his house and is currently DOWN $500,000 USD. He's a moron.
