Why we track the big stock moves
A war was recently waged within the battlefield of the stock market. Gamestop had its stock both bought and sold by hedge fund managers on one side and an army of investors on the other. The scenario seemed to pit David vs.Goliath in the form of retail investors vs. fund managers. The retail investors, having an army of 500,000, made it a little more like Goliath vs.Goliath. What’s most infuriating is that both sides appeared to be just playing a game. The loser of the game was the investor not part of either group that was taken for a roller coaster ride.
