Buy and Hodl: The Guide
By - gherkinit
*"This is a siege not a battle, and they are starving."*
I like this analogy. They are dismantling the very castle in which they are trapped in order to throw stones at the apes below the gates.
Got a chill reading it.
We got this. They're under siege and we're sitting behind our computer screens, not risking anything with shit eating grins on our faces.
Buy and hold.
and we got ~~Steven Seagal~~ DFV below deck
HODL-ing shares and waiting costs me nothing.. let’s starve them into surrendering 💎👊
Not to mention that in many countries (like my own) trading stocks can trigger CGT while long term hodling may not. I'm not going to risk losing 39% of my tendies for some short term gain. Moon or bust.
And hold for longer than even seems reasonable.
We decide where to get off, why not ride for a while?
Such a good description and helps to visualize the strategy!
Brick by brick?
My morning mantra:
**I was not born in Bulgaria.**
**I am not a cat.**
**I am a Space Monkey.**
**Apes own the float.**
**I buy. I hodl. That's all.**
Some people call me Maurice
Haha I was hoping that came across the way it was intended lol
I can totally hear it!
'Cause you speak of the pompatus of love?
'Cause I'm right here
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that
Some people call me the space cowboy 😎🦧
Some call me the gangster of love
Great write up. I too was tempted to trade earnings with a portion of my shares because it seemed like an easy way to expand my position without needing more capital. I have since changed my mind because of all the reasons you said but also, they were able to create the previous cycles because there was a share offering each time. They needed that or we would have mooned. They are not getting another share offering to help them out this time, that is unless a bunch of apes gift them a fuck load of shares that have been locked up for months. I refuse to give the SHFs anything, they will not get 1 share until we are deeeep up in that MOASS.
Look, here’s another reason for apes that are tempted to sell during the cycle. The more people that day trades, the longer it delays MOASS. We all know that these fuckers are routing over 50% of our orders through off exchanges/internalizers. The more people trying to earn a couple bucks, the longer you delay MOASS which effectively starts to ware more people out. The Mayo boy gets to stay alive longer the more we sell. You think Kenny boy is eager to be locked up like madoff and the killed off when they wanted him gone? Buy and hodl is the fastest way to achieving MOASS. LFG! I’m excited for next week.
This is the fucking way !
Who was the author of that great quote you used?

ONLY WAY !
Thank you for all you do, and I’m gonna miss you when we squeeze. It’s been very fun hanging out in the discord and the stream.
pickleman's stream going into, and post moass: just the chart
thanks for keeping my pickle tickled! sticking to my plan to stay zen and HODL! 💎👊
Love you, plenter.. I don't know you and you don't know me, but I love you like a brother nonetheless.. I wish you many tendies in MOASS
I love you too
Now kith 💋👀
1k EOD!!!!! Next stop, the moon
Long weekend took forever!
*consistently HIGHER lows in 2nd chart
Don’t be a Ronald
Don't be a *fucking* Ronald
One of the few posts I've read here in a long while that is rational and doesn't run on assumptions or predict dates.
I've been saying it all year. This stock is fucking exciting to own regardless of moass. How often do you get to buy a part of a company that recently had baller leadership implemented with a game plan of expanding and innovating? Basically never.
And here, these SHFs are keeping the price nice and low for all of us to load up. Let's all enjoy the ride and not stress the monthly/weekly/daily swings.
I don’t talk about MOASS with anyone but I have told the story of RC’s chewy.com legacy, GameStop’s leadership turnover, and new innovations after passing by an EBgames and gushing to a friend when they asked why im so stoked that they are changing the name to GameStop.
Gherkinit the right way. Thanks for all you do!
Praise VWAP 🙏
Praise be to VWAP

Whale teeth for MOAS
We took our pilgrimage from behind the Wendy's dumpster to the local public library to read this post and brought our clients with us.
Praise be to VWAP
Very wet ass pussy?
Ooooh maybe a Cardi Vwap appearance this week!
No. It means...Vlad Will be Ass Pounded
or volume-weighted average price.
💯 Either way🤷♂️
I hope he ends up in federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison.
Bring a bucket an a mop for this wet ass stonky
We don't need anyone taking Phtephens work.
Brilliant night time reading. Thanks for all the effort you put in to this, it is truly appreciated! BUY and HODL.
I Hope that those who are tempted to day trade really pay attention to this. Buy & Hodl really is the most important strategy we've had this whole time.
Thanks for posting this. We’ve been seeing posts/DDs lately that slightly can be perceived as encouraging day trading with the cycles and it’s concerning if folks start to attempt to day trade GME. Buy and Hold is the way. I also enjoy your stream and I’m on there daily. Can’t wait until the day you tell us good luck and sign off for Moass. 🚀🚀
He mentions that every share bought is another cut in the metaphorical “a thousand cuts”. Which means every share sold in an attempt to day-trade is a band-aid on one of those said cuts.
They don’t deserve even one share of reprieve, apes. HODL
Yep no daytrading in this bitch!
When I think about Gherk vs. other DDer’s it makes me think of the movie 300 when they ask the guys what their profession is. Then they ask the Spartans and they say “warriors.” Gherk is a Spartan
Arooo! Arooo! Arooo!
Boy I love sitting down with a cool glass of lemonade and a **good, old fashioned DD** mm-hmmm 💎👐
/U/gherkinit I was without power for the last week in southern Louisiana and I gotta say I missed your dulcet tones as much as I missed your contributions to this sub and beyond
Thank you so, so much, and it's good to be back
Welcome back! We all missed you and we're glad your safe ❤
Mhhhh pickles. 🥒🥒🥒
I have diamondhanditis and the only cure is MOASS
“This is a siege not a battle, and they are starving”
Just wanted to say thank you for this. It's by far the best and most concise information I've seen on several topics we've been struggling to address over the past weeks.
I personally really appreciate the effort and expertise. The mod team haven't really known how to publicly acknowledge your contributions to this community overall, but I feel justified in wanting to go on record as saying thank you. Keep jerkin it.
Keep up the good work
REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE MY TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITS!
GET EM GHERK!!!
Keep pushing the knowledge Gherk! You’ve been a solid voice and great mind in these trying times 🤌🏼
The objective is still the same, the rules have not changed. We must Buy and Hodl. This is the way.
Three days of garbage on Reddit and finally Gherkinit comes through with some rational and well thought out advice. I wish more apes listened to Gherk.
Thanks again Gherk and I will be listening tomorrow as usual.
MOASS tomorrow. Got it. 🚀🚀
As always, you remain a logical and clear eyed voice in this community.... The time and complications of this process have been stressful in so many ways, but we are fortunate to have individuals such as yourself sharing insights that help us to form our own rational clearheaded opinions.
Whale teeth for MOASS, guybrush for MOASS.
Praise be to VWAP.
Fuck yeah, Zecure, let's fucking go!!
This.. this *does* tickle my pickle 🥒
Edit: one of your graphs says “consistently lower lows” and I’m pretty sure it’s meant to say consistently higher lows
Whale Teeth for MOASS 🐋 🦷
u/TDETLES would love this
I do love this. I love it so much.
Whale Teeth for MOASS!
Buy and hold, nothing has changed.
💎 🙌 4Ever
thank you so much. just shared this with new ape friends who are planning to buy their first shares at open tomorrow
This a million times, thank you Gherk.
**TA;DR** *DON’T FUCKING DAYTRADE!*
This is absolute magic, so beautifully and plainly written
Phenomenal writeup gherk, thanks for your continued effort in educating and entertaining us💎💎💎
This is the only thing you need to read if you’ve been in here for more than a day. Just keep on holding until we hit the stars!
Thank you, great read!
A wild pickle appears 👀
I gained a wrinkle reading this 👍
Great summary, holding for as long as it takes. The floor is 50m.
Gherk, you sonofabitch, I'm in. I've watched you for two months+ now and hodl in the xxxx. You're fuckin amazing and I love your entertaining bants. This DD is spot on...can't wait to see your super secret DD.
Get this to the TOP...there is a lot of crack-pot theories out there that drive mob mentality. Papa RC and Daddy Gill bought. And then bought. And held. And bought some more. And held.
If you were looking for a "3 to 6 months until Billionaire", please understand, the only way to the top of Wall St., or a hedge fund, or being a market maker is a total and complete lack of empathy. It is (soon to be was, lol) narcissistic old money that shed blood and others' freedom for their personal profit and they are not going to give up because millions of people think it is the right thing to do.
And please, don't give up your empathy...it is what separates the haves and the have nots. DO, however, take care of yourselves, calm your fears, and don't let greed be the reason you helped prevent MOASS.
Sincerely, a XXX holder since December 2020
This is perfect. Really well said.
Fuck yeah brother!!! Well said.
Pickle preach!! ❤️
Amazing and well written. Thank you.
Fucking awesome. Day off from the market but my favourite pickle is here
All I do is BUY&HODL 💎🙌
If it dips = buy the fucking dip & keep holding = EZ 🦧
#To the Moon soon 🚀🌕
Slam that updoot you apes!!!! This should be pinned IMO.
You can't create a more thorough explanation of the catalyst, the real and only needed catalyst.
I’m greedy, so I buy and hold.
Tits jacked x100
Great stuff as usual gherk! TY 💎🙌
This is the way! Good work pickle man!
TLDR: LONGEST JOHNSON SOON
What a hero. A man who relies on day trading for a living, is specifically requesting people NOT to try and day trade GME. Thanks for everything you contribute to this community. I’m sad to not see any weekly predictions, but obviously i know why. Maybe tease us with a percentage chance of MOASS happening this cycle though?
Meltdown should 140% change their name to 'cess pool of paper hands'
Pickle you are a Saint, Godspeed! Thank you so much for all the time and effort you go through to keep the community informed, calm and engaged with our favorite stonk! You are very much appreciated.
BUY HOLD AND WIN. NO SELLING!
I may be tripping balls right now, but this post is melding perfectly as I watch S5E9 of Rick and Morty
Solid. Appreciate all the info you have provided. For me, your content is something I can understand for the most part.
As always, thanks for all you do for us Gherk!
Gherk you are a legend thank you
I thought for sure the guide was only going to say "buy & HODL"
Buy and hold.
Say no more.
The pickle we need, but not the pickle we deserve. Thank you for educating the apes here with great knowledge!
I’ve fought the urge to sell on a swing a couple of times. Fear of missing the moass has kept me straight to the mantra. Buy and hodl is the way. My shares will be worth enough to take care of me and my family. Greed is what got the SHF in the trouble they are in now.
This needs to be pinned
Great write up. This should be required reading for new apes. All the info you need and easily digestible.
Gherk hitting the nail on the head again. The most relatable & reliable person covering GME. Going to miss his salty brand of analysis when this pops
This is the way
Ronald the original paper hand 😭😭😭😭😭😭
This is a great post Gherk, thanks for all you do.
THIS IS THE WAY, BUY AND HODL
This should be stickied as required reading.
Guybrush for MOASS
Whale teeth for MOASS
Any forward looking TA for earnings? I’m thinking it could go down up or sideways
This is facts, buy n hold
Just had more cash settle for tomorrow! Going to leave $35 behind as advised by a smart ape who said you’ll need that to cash out
If DFV hasn’t sold, I ain’t sellin’ either. That’s my promise to the community as an XXX holder.
Yep, every run can be a straight run up, day trading is just paper handing.
u/gherkinit you legend. Thank you. See you on the stream tomorrow,
Perm for Moass
First and foremost, fuck you and thanks for getting me moist
Your DD is the best DD posted on here. This and the exit strategy
Thank you Solenya
Oh pickle my pickle
I did a buy... I do a hodl....
Ask and ye shall receive thanks Gherk!
Solid DD and no perm. This is the way
Buy and hold, got it!
Thanks, gherk! Appreciate the work you do! I've been tuning into the stream lately and I really like your vibe and insights.
Awesome original content. First time seeing this presentation. You are Brilliant.
I’m glad you exist
GODDAMMIT. What a Post.
This is the DD Apes need.
Thanks for making me a bit smarter, u/gherkinit
You ARE a good man, one with principles and high moral values; I salute you! You know me on your daily stream, recall Hasan G.?!
Keep going my friend and I am sure that no mother fuckers has enough money to buy you out! Did I say Hedgies Are Fukt!? See you on the Moon brother!
Thanks for Gherkinit each and every day Gherk! You are truly one of the good ones. I am grateful for the knowledge that you so freely share to us apes 🦍. Been one hell of a ride so far, and we’re just getting strapped in.
- May you be graced with everlasting Tendies. 👊🔥💎🚀🌙
The monument will be DFV flanked by RC and u/gherkinit.
Rick_of_spades is the gift shop.
Hodl and buy. Got it I think.
You down wit OBV?!
You think your making money day trading but you are just slowing the money you can make has always been my understanding
We regularly hit max pain, meaning whoever's in control of the price makes sure options players get rekd. It's therefore better to buy and HODL.
Jesus I’m so dumb I keep messing this up I can never remember if it’s “buy and hold” or “hold and buy” so I keep doing both. So frustrating.
Don't attempt to play the cycle and settle for $$,$$$ when you can hodl and garutnee $$$,$$$,$$$
I don't understand the OBV, please explain.
The underside is the original short position, the upper part is shares traded since January. It makes it clear that they have not covered even a fraction of the shares shorted and have in fact just continued shorting this entire time.
So you speak in current tense when talking about SHF pumping in synthetic shares. Do we believe they are STILL creating them even with all the rules that have been passed?
Yes gherk will be posting a dd soon that describes how they could do this.
One of the best DDs written to date.
Praise The Pickle! Praise be to VWAP!
Guess they firgot
Praise VWAP! TO VALHALLA!
Fuck yeah, gherk! We hold the fucking line!! Don't be a fucking Wayne
This is the way.
Cheers Gherkington! This week is gonna be interesting! Have a good night and get some rest. Smash that updoot you damn dirty apes!!!!!!
I'm ready to fuck them in one of the holes!
As an XX holder, i sent XX (20%) of shares to computershare, will hold those forever.
I'm quite excited to thetagang post-MOASS when my portfolio is not 100% GME, but for now I'm content holding more shares than ever and a few ITM calls.
BUY AND HOLD
May the old gods bless you.
Don’t be a Ronald even if your name is Ronald
Don’t be a fucking Ronald!
Simple is best, simple reaches more people, and it is surprisingly effective!
Just **BUY and HODL**.
Thanks for this; I've had some of the same worries.
Still, you say
> there are cycles that effect the price of GME
Although you use a subjective element, it should be pointed out that two instances of something can **never** be evidence of any cyclical event.
[Granted, the third cycle started just in time, but past Friday was an aberration - although certainly an aberration I'd toss in if I were a SHF. Preventing a runup for one day would likely be within their wheelhouse. I do expect further runups as part of the cycle, but I don't think past instances make it inevitable.]
You make this point already, OP (so consider this support!), but I wanted to make it extra clear: if GME gets a runup tomorrow,
***three cycles occuring is evidence of three cycles having occurred, nothing more. No single cycle occurrence is proof that the next one will occur.***
Not even, say, the 67th instance will be proof that there will be a 68th. It is mere evidence that may lead one to postulate that a next cycle may occur. (Note the difference between proof and evidence, folks.)
I don't do TA, but your VWAP and liquidity points don't either, awesome stuff. I also like the matter-of-fact options breakdown. Couldn't really follow the 'proof they haven't covered' paragraph all that easily, but I think I now know what you were saying there.
Btw you forgot to source the quote: https://www.forbes.com/sites/georgecalhoun/2021/03/05/gamestopgamestonk-has-nothing-to-do-with-the-madness-of-crowds/?sh=6833e36b25d0
Could you repost this to all the GME subreddits? It's important apes get wind of this. Some don't allow crossposting (copies only) and/or don't allow other users to post on behalf ofyou, so I'd appreciate the personal touch. :D
I agree, and I will Cross-post
