I’m assuming y’all saw what happened to the stock market today. And perhaps, before you knew what the reason for the giant drop was, you were bothered by it, like me and my husband were. Until we realized what had happened, that is.
Here’s a great summary (WARNING: LANGUAGE):
Charles Payne had the most GLORIOUS meltdown about this today too:

So, I’ve learned more about the stock market today than I ever have ever. Part of that is thanks to our own Natalie, who helped break down for me in layman’s terms what the heck short selling is. 🙂
Redditors essentially beat hedgefund managers at their own game. And NOW Wall Street is all – WE NEED REGULATIONS.
It’s going to be really interesting to see how this all plays out – especially since there are some very powerful politicians *cough* PELOSI *cough* who CONSTANTLY seem to take advantage of their insider knowledge when it comes to the stock market – and who will also be subject to whatever regulatory fixes may result.
It’s like Paul Joseph Watson said. The stock market is a big giant casino. The house isn’t used to losing.
Hold on tight, y’all. Things are about to get weird. 🙂
