Gamestop (GME) Bounces Back Above $300

With respect to Gamestop (GME), the stock has experienced an impressive bounce to $415 from yesterday’s low of $107. At the time of writing, Gamestop is trading at $337 in what looks like a display of defiance as multiple Wall Street brokerage firms halt trading of the GME stock.

Furthermore, the r/WallStreetBets community has branched out to other social media platforms such as Telegram and Twitter thus expanding the reach of their mission to liquidate Hedge Funds. Therefore, the current price action regarding Gamestop (GME) might become a ‘financial battlefield’ between retail traders and hedge funds.
