Roaring Kitty's post on X unleashed a mega short squeeze in heavily shorted Gamestop and AMC Entertainment Holdings between Monday and Wednesday. 

On the first day of the mania, we pointed out,  "You know Jefferies bankers are burning the phones at GME and AMC pitching ATM equity offerings for after the close." 

Then Tuesday. 

And Wednesday (read here). 

 Gamestop and AMC's price action from the start of Wednesday through yesterday's close has been absolutely awful.

And finally, to end the week, Gamestop entered into an open market sale agreement with Jefferies to sell up to 45 million shares. 

Shares cratered in premarket trading, down 23% to 21.32. 

Here's the price action recap for both Gamestop and AMC for the week.

Thanks for playing retail.
