Dan Pipitone, Co-Founder of TradeZero. Fought our Clearing Firm to Get $GME Approved, WE ARE LIVE. Ask about Dead Hedgies, Other Trading Platforms Lying - AMA!
Hey guys - this is Dan Pipitone, Co-Founder from TradeZero. You wouldn’t believe the shit going on behind the scenes right now. 10 hedge funds have fallen, and our clearing firm emailed to block ALL trading platforms from $GME, $AMC, and the like.
That some trading firms are blocking these symbols is disgusting, unprecedented, and beyond fucked up. Our clearing firm tried to make us block you, and we refused - after 3 hours on the phone they backed down.
So - ask away! ANYTHING. There’s some things I might not be able to touch on because of licensing restrictions. Anything that’s not a literal compliance requirement, I’ll level with you.
What this has been like running a trading firm, the communications we’re getting from clearing firms, what I’m hearing in the background, apocalyptic collapses in the financial sector, questions about TradeZero, whatever.
On a personal note - you’re a bunch of goddamn heroes. This has been one of the most exciting weeks of my career and holy shit have you autists sent earthquakes through the system.
(I tried to post this on /r/wallstreetbets, but it keeps getting removed. Looking forward to doing an AMA there once the mods approve me!)
