Buy and Hodl: The Guide

Buy and Hodl: The Guide

*"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.


moneycashdane

Got a chill reading it.


channelgary

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.

stonkbeast

HODL-ing shares and waiting costs me nothing.. let’s starve them into surrendering 💎👊


I_love_beer_2021

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.


CorreiasVerticalJump

And hold for longer than even seems reasonable. We decide where to get off, why not ride for a while?

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.


rc2288

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.

rbizzy

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.


PizzaNo7741

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. XX 😘

Brilliant night time reading. Thanks for all the effort you put in to this, it is truly appreciated! BUY and HODL.


bunceSwaddler

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.


pasciiii

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. 🚀🚀


ljgillzl

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


Lulufeeee

Yep no daytrading in this bitch!


QDiamonds

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

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 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.


Consistent-Outcome94

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. 🚀🚀


boundforglory83

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.

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.


Rdy2BeNOTBROKE

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

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?

The pickle we need, but not the pickle we deserve. Thank you for educating the apes here with great knowledge!


FoneAccount

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.

theboyshua

You down wit OBV?!


Spenraw

You think your making money day trading but you are just slowing the money you can make has always been my understanding


AlarisMystique

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.


l_Pulser_l

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 $$$,$$$,$$$


tr0j4n_v1ru5

I don't understand the OBV, please explain.


gherkinit

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.


GxM42

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.

SEQVERE-PECVNIAM

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


gherkinit

I agree, and I will Cross-post
