CTIA Tea Time 2021.02.09 Event
GME, the stock for GameStop, is undoubtedly the recent hotspot of the financial industry and has attracted wide attention from not just industry insiders and day traders but also regulators, politicians and political and social activists, for good reasons. It is not only a new phenomenon of investor behavior (or movement as someone may call it) but also prompts questions about its social and legal implications. In this event, we will be discussing all these questions surrounding not just this one stock but the underlying driving force of the recent price action of quite a few stocks, even commodity futures -- Wallstreetbet. The discussion can cover many different aspects including stock pricing, investor psychology and behavior, social, ethical and legal considerations as well as of course trading opportunities.
