Joel Elconin – Exploring Meme Stocks & Commodity Surges

May 17, 2024

Joel Elconin, Co-Host of the Benzinga PreMarket Prep Show and Editor of the PreMarket Prep website joins me to share his thoughts on a wild week for Meme stocks, large US markets moving to all time highs and key breakouts in a range of big commodity markets.


We dive deep into the recent surge in meme stocks like GameStop and AMC, driven by tweets and pre-market trading. Joel explains the domino effect of short squeezes, and how algorithms and institutions play a major role. The conversation also touches on the performance of U.S. markets, the impact of central bank policies, and the influence of China’s economic measures on commodities.

    Silver short squeeze is on .

      May 17, 2024 17:21 PM

      Nice to see silver blast above $30 resistance to make the strongest weekly close in years. The close today at $31.26, was well above all the recent peaks for the last 4 years, including the #SilverSqueeze peak of $30.35 back in early 2021.

      This is hugely significant on a technical basis, and especially nice to see it happen on a Friday to end the weekly candle on a high note.
