  • Anyone that has the basic knowledge of how stock trading works will acknowledge that Robinhood didn't do anything wrong. I am not sure what all of this outrage really is for. It is just dumb stupid outrage, so I am disappointed with Philip's coverage of this story. You could've spoken with some experts on this topic and what did Robinhood do wrong? No one has been able to explain this

    • It's what happens when people blindly jump on a bandwagon. If people actually read robinhood's terms and conditions they wouldn't be saying such silly stuff. Heck if they understood how clearing houses for stocks worked they wouldn't be saying this nonsense.

  • Good job Philip DeFranco - rage quitting Robinhood like a 13 year old while you didn’t do real digging on why they had to stop trading of GameStop. They had no capital left to front the enormous amounts of trades going on (per SEC regulations). RobinHood could have been shut down if they didn’t comply with those regulations. I wonder how many people you influenced to pull all their money out of Robinhood while Robinhood was doing capital fundraising so they could turn trading back on in accordance with the law.

  • Why are you Americans still use TikTok? Are you still not aware that Chinese laws mandates Chinese companies, apps, phones like Huawei, Xiaomi, etc... to send user data back to Chinese Government Servers? Also, do you not even know that the raw videos you take using TikTok, are very easy for TikTok to remove the filters? So if you took a video of yourself naked using TikTok with a filter, are you aware that filter is just like a Photoshop layer? The question is, how much of your data has been uploaded to Chinese servers? The mere fact that all your TikTok videos are uploaded online, where are the data stored considering different backups in different countries? As of February 2021, Facebook is being sued for harvesting user data and tracking user activities even when you are not using the Facebook app. Facebook is an American company. What more of TikTok. If you are thinking about the new Terms of Service, since when did China ever do what they say or legally write? Are you guys aware of what China has been doing while the world is suffering from the Pandemic? World Domination. Hong Kong people are now afraid to talk because of recent mass arrests of civilians who speak about democracy. Jack Ma suddenly went missing after criticizing CCP. Top business tycoons disappear and "re-educated". As of now, Taiwan is threatened war by China if it insists independence. You all talk about how you taught Robinhood a lesson, yet continue to patronize everything China. All those goods you buy that are made in China instead of demanding US companies to be sanctioned and come back to US or at least out of China. To bring your jobs back or at least stop the flow of billions of dollars into China which they are using to secretly take over the world. Are you aware how many countries are in deep debt to China and their territories and properties now controlled by China during the Pandemic alone? If you want some ideas of what China has been doing, check my videos last year when the Pandemic started. We still have not heard what happened to the citizen journalists Chen Qishi and Fang Bin after recording what is happening in Wuhan. Also check China's Skynet. Wake up America. You are the one enabling China. Fang Bin. Skip to when Chinese police barged into his house and has never been heard from again. notown.info/two/video/l5Vuh3yRopmRytk.html How China tracks everyone. notown.info/two/video/vL2xrJlpjbGT0tE.html How China Censored COVID notown.info/two/video/vs2xiqB5ZcZk0Mk.html How China censors Livestreams in real time. notown.info/two/video/rq6Kgq2Pd7aGr6M.html How you can just "disappear" by China notown.info/two/video/yMyElqhoopmFurM.html

  • Phil you jumped on the Robinhood story and took an extreme far too quickly without having the full story. They didn't have the cash to front for the trades, therefore they had to halt buy trades for gme in order to keep the rest of the stocks on their app tradeable. The fact that you jumped to such a harsh criticism before understanding this is definitely not the best look.

  • People getting pissed about bidens executive orders don't really understand that for alot of these, there isn't time for beauracracy to do its shit first. He's aiming for immediate action for short term solutions to buy time for more in depth and permenant solutions. Trump might have done alot of good, but alot of his shit was questionable at best too. Biden has to fix an administration that's been gutted by his predecessor.

People giving democracy the middle finger because they’re upset their president lost, blatant racism and domestic terrorism , the leader of a 1st world country tweeting like a bitter middle schooler, dropping out of a worldwide program to help the world go green, attempts at regression in trans/lgbt and women’s rights and just lies after lies spewed from that man that people simply ate up that divided the country. I legitimately don’t know how people still support him unless they’re that afraid that they aren’t able to survive if they don’t have the unfair leg in the world like they used to.

  • Hey Phill. I know this has very little to do with your current video but I had to get this off my chest. I’ve been watching your videos for quite a while and have loved seeing the evolution that you’ve undergone not only as a NOtownr but as a person. I do feel like you have focused on trying to be a better person over all. However what this last political cycle has shown me is that you’ve started to replace your understanding with your current morality. I can’t always say that this is a bad thing. (Being a father myself morality definitely becomes very important when you suddenly have someone to protect). However it has slowly turned you from being a person who attempts to see all sides of a situation to one who only only sees the side that conforms with his current morale standing. What’s even worse is that I worry that it will one day lead you (though I fear it has already) to viewing vast groups of people as being not just factually ignorant but “immoral” because their beliefs differ from yours. Not only that but it has started to blind you to the fact that you can still be in the wrong. While you ask us to tell you our opinions at the end of each video I feel like these are now just empty words especially when you’ve started to write off the opinions of nearly half of the American populace. I’m not saying that i agree with that half but that it’s important to remember that each political party is capable of lies, arrogance, double talk, and purposeful manipulation. And also that You, Phill, are fallible. that’s what attempting to see both sides of an issue is supposed to fix. Even if you believe a side is based in ignorance you could still attempt to see why they hold their ignorance so dear instead of condemning them for it. Maybe then you’d regain the humility you used to have. Again while I appreciate your desire for a clear morality I believe it has blinded you to the possibility of your own fallibility and has limited your ability to see clearly both sides of an issue. While I can accept this from an opinion channel (in some regard) I find this very disheartening to find it (again) from a “news” channel. Especially from yours :/ with that being said, I wish you the best but from now on I’ll be looking for a new source of unbiased information (if that even exists anymore in this day and age). - William

So when the volume goes off the charts robinhood needed money to cover them. So, yeah nothing is going to change.

  • I find it remarkable that this Wallstreetbets narrative exposes just how ignorant everyone is about how the financial markets work. Wallstreetbets are not the good guys in this story. Wallstreetbets are abound with confessions of actual market manipulation. And don’t give me that “well, the hedge funds do it so that’s just a double standard”. Bulls***... I think it’s abominable when the Wall Street establishment manipulates stock prices and equally so when reddit does it. This would be the equivalent of dems storming the capitol and claiming that republicans did it first as a defense. At least the short sellers are attempting to justify their trades on economic fundamentals whereas reddit is literally admitting that this is straight up market manipulation and then complains when the SEC enforces it’s rules. If anyone on WallStreetBets thinks that there will be any lasting damage to the hedge fund or investment banks they are completely clueless about the fight they have picked. At these prices they have given a huge incentive to people who have way more capital than them (Goldman, Blackrock, etc) to short these stocks even further and if they think they can win a war of attrition against them in this economy they will be sh** out of luck. Do you realize how much more profit potential there is for short sellers when GameStop is at $400 per share than at $80? Ooooh they squeezed $5bn out of an industry that has more than $10trn in capital to play with. The only losers in this story are going to be the average joes who jump on the bandwagon after watching a couple of YT videos and buy GameStop just in time for the rug to be pulled out when the redditors finally cash in. I guarantee Wall Street proper will not lose one iota of sleep over this. In fact I would argue that the average trading desk is licking their lips at the dripping roast that reddit has served them. I’m not trying to excuse the excesses of Wall Street, but if anyone thinks that they are playing a game that isn’t already rigged against them then they are s*** out of luck!
