I. Just. Can't

I'm reminded of the VW short squeeze in 2008. Lots of shorts. Share price spiked from ~E200 to ~E1000 in a couple days..... and then plummeted. Some winners, lots of losers.

Participation isn't investing, it's more akin to gambling.... not quite Russian roulette but it will be painful for many.
