- “It really do be like that doe” - u/putscaputs
Wallstreetbets user u/putscaputs comes in at 5th with his meme titled “It really do be like that doe”.
Disconnecting from losses can sometimes be hard but disconnecting you monitor to hide your losses is always easy! This meme is even funnier considering a majority of wallstreetbets users tend to trade using the Robinhood mobile application. Unfortunately if you are trading on a mobile phone you will have to delete the App or wait until your phone dies to hide trading losses.
- “Ha, that’s an easy one” - u/CasuallyExplained
Even though it is technically classified as a Shitpost by r/wallstreetbets “Ha, that’s an easy one” comes in at 4th with credit for this wall street meme going to user u/CasuallyExplained.
Being vulgar and talking trash are two common trends you will find in r/wallstreetbets. In fact for many it’s part of the allure! User u/CasuallyExplained encompasses both by drawing attention to “Traders” really being an anagram for “Retards” all along.
- “Economic Scarcity 🤔💰” - u/turtle123ful
Our 3rd spot goes to u/turtle123ful and his meme “Economic Scarcity 🤔💰”.
This meme does a great job of exposing the thoughts that most wallstreetbets users may have when they first discover options trading. In many cases trading TSLA may take the priority of our funds as opposed to buying things that don’t expire worthless like a T-shirt but then again, you can always buy 100 shirts once TSLA hits $10,000…
- “I Feel Targeted” - u/Hairbear1995
2nd Place is a meme much like 3rd place, it once again draws attention to how traders often spend their money and when it affects them emotionally. One thing is forsure, A $20 falling out of your pocket is lost money but $20 lost in options at least had a chance to make you more! Thank you u/Hairbear1995 for this hilarious meme “I Feel Targeted”.
- “BREAKING: CNBC Officially Gives Up, Stocks Enter Kangaroo Market” - u/theahsbdjdbfn
