Set your calendars and grab your popcorn, the virtual hearing, titled “Game Stopped? Who Wins and Loses When Short Sellers, Social Media, and Retail Investors Collide,” will take place Feb. 18 at 12 p.m. ET.
House Representative Maxine Waters has announced that the committee will hear testimony from Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman , Melvin Capital CEO Gabriel Plotkin, Citadel CEO Kenneth Griffin, and Keith “Roaring Kitty” Gill.
Given that the hearing is virtual, Roaring Kitty and Vlad Tenev will not finally be in the same place. This does not alleviate the lasting conspiracy that Kitty and Tenev are the same person, pulling off the most elaborate marketing stunt of all time. /sarcasm
We can expect the questioning to come from politicians with less thorough comprehension of the markets than a Wallstreetbets Redditor who joined two weeks ago shouting, “Diamond hands 💎🤲🏼.”
