Yep this isn't big tech at all, it's new school brokerages in an old world system with old world influences and clearing houses.

Robinhood is literally owned by Citadel, which has a LARGE short position.

I find it odd that some single stock that was basically called trash, hardly a blimp, concern suddenly is in the entire Financial Spotlight, has some Democrats Attention and White House Monitoring...

They're not involved because of the people buying the stock and driving up the price; they got involved when RH halted trading. They're for the hedge funds getting boned.

We're gonna see the White House/Congress act on this quicker than they did the $2000 checks that were supposed to immediately go out the door.

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

Anyone have any inside info for trade promotions? I have a One S I want to offload for an Oculus Quest 2 for my kid for Christmas. Seems like I missed an October promotion with bonus trade value. I check Cheap Ass Gamer daily but seems like it is only game trade in bonuses right now.

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

Yeah you just missed a pretty excellent deal, though I don't know if the One S was included in that. Trade deals seem to change on Sundays. Folks say they are still getting extra for their consoles though, particularly for Pro members.
Honestly, best bet is to swing by a location and see how much it rings up as. You'll need to include a controller, HDMI, and power cable. Possibly even a USB cable for the controller, but that might just be for PS consoles because they have internal batteries.

Re: GameStop is Vile and Disgusting Part XXVII

From the limited info i saw about it, it seems it was included. Yeah, I probably should swing by one to see. My other concern is the stock on the Quest 2 dwindles and I miss getting one there. Not that I couldn't get it anywhere, just more about taking some of the cost of it down. Thanks, Dan.
