THREAD: Robinhood and other brokerages came under fire last week for restricting trading in certain securities, including $GME and $AMC.

A thread simplifying the underlying mechanics of this drama and explaining why our archaic T+2 settlement system is to blame...


1/ First, if you're unfamiliar with the backdrop to this story, here are the basics.

GameStop (and other "meme stocks") saw a massive price spike last week.

There were fundamental and technical reasons for the rise.

My thread below is a helpful primer.


2/ On Thursday, several brokerages, including the popular @RobinhoodApp, halted or restricted trading in many of these stocks.

The public outcry was immediate (and very loud).

Amazingly, it even had @AOC and @TedCruz agreeing on something.


3/ There was speculation suggesting that Robinhood was involved in something nefarious.

Many pointed to their relationship with Citadel - a buyer of Robinhood order flow and a part-owner of infamous $GME short Melvin Capital - as a potential driver of the trading halts.


4/ But while this story made for headline-grabbing news, the real driver of the trading halts was much more mundane.

It has to do with our financial system's archaic "T+2 settlement" infrastructure.

It can get a bit complex, so let's simplify it here for everyone to understand.
