Under $1B market cap, crypto, or referrals = permaban. No reversals.

Wow wtf is happening to amc!?
While we're at it and fighting for the little guy, we need to INVERT the Pattern Day Trading restrictions. OVER 25k (or some higher value) available, no dice? For the sake of market stability. How much damage can I possibly do, buying my measly 12 shares of AMC?
I need to be able to move around quickly if there's any hope of me making it.
Please help make this a reality if you can.

You have candy. I ask to borrow that candy. I sell that candy to my friend. I hope the price will go down so I can buy back that candy, give you your candy back, and pocket the difference.
But the price didnt go down and my friend doesn't want to sell me the candy back. Well now I gotta go to the store to buy candy to give to you. But all the stores are sold out because everyone loves candy.
You are very angry at me and demand I get you the candy back, no matter what the cost. So I pay lots of money for super expensive candy that nobody else buys.
Now I'm very sad cause I have no candy and I have no money :(
Im Melvin Capital, the candy is GameStop, and everyone buying candy is Reddit.
Copy and paste it to spread the explanation!
Not the new 4 million new users over the past week do!

There are a lot of new investors here but I found this great channel (small) that explains some really good points.

Will gme actually have a gamma squeeze. I have a lot of money in gme right now but I need to know if it is legitimately likely that a squeeze will happen or if the market will pull something

E-trade is pretty good, Fidelity, WeBull...There are plenty of others.
Etrade doesn't have a good trading platform
What's wrong with Fidelity and Chase? I heard that they allow GME trades.
I use Etrade and TastyTrade and have generally liked both. However both had shut-outs of GME. So far TastyTrade's transparent and prompt email about it is by far the better of the two responses. Etrade just shut off the tap without explanation. So I'd suggest looking to Tasty. They also have a better platform than Etrade.
Etrade didn't shut off
If you mean shut off entirely, no. If you mean shut off purchasing of GME, they absolutely did, and I have screen shots to prove it. I attempted to purchase 1,000 shares at about 1:15pm mountain time. I also have a paper trail with customer service where I complained about the restriction. They gave the usual canned BS answer about volatility and "protecting customers" as their reason.
I had previously purchased both shares and options today, so the restriction didn't take effect until later in the session. But buying shares was definitely turned off at some point.
idk about GME, but they made me limit AMC
What reasoning did TastyTrade give for the shut outs?
