The real reason of market crash Thursday

Is it really the rising 10 year treasury yield or is it due to gme??

How come MM can get together and decide to sell at the same time while everyone else were told to stay in the market and were wondering what happen?

Could be a combination of things ie. people selling other holdings to play gme, there were hedge funds making 100s millions from playing gme but they had to sell other holdings...

But Thursday felt more like an orchestrated play by MM and mass media, ie. selling bonds (heard almost nobody was buying the 10 year treasury during the auction Thursday and the yield thus pushed up) and stocks at the same time and just holding cash...?

GME is dogecoin of the equities world and there is nothing wrong with that. The frenzy just looks bad on the free market but entertaining nonetheless. New internet age made trading a little easier.

Correction after epic run up is normal. GME, bond yield, commodities rally, and profit taking all contribute to the run.

My concern is its almost 1:1 yield up 1bp, stock down 1% so it was MM algo trades initially and only then retail investors like you and me got burned and follow to sell (or hold for dear life until MM decide to do trend reversal). Bond yield, profit taking, etc all can be easily manipulated and orchestrated...and the ones get to do profit taking first are MM, leaving retail for leftover gains..

Nasdaq 3.5% is a big one day drop...maybe not crash like 4-5% back in March but still big especially when the high flyer stocks goes down like 20% in the in week's session, that translates to 100ks for me so im mad

This should be a concern to individual investors, even ARK got crushed too, 15% loss in a week. Even banks, oils, cyclicals, and some commodities got affected although to a much lesser degree. For some people, its a matter of 100,000s of loss in few days...

I get that yield and valuation goes hand-in-hand inversely but the dynamics is almost 1:1, and when MM both selling bonds (thus yield rises) and stocks, what are they really doing? Where's the money going to?
