WallStretBets Slang Guide

This reddit post explains the culture of WallStreetBets.

Retard. How WSB users describe themselves. Being retard is okay and expected, as long as you don't go full retard. Never go full retard. The typical WSB retard does not know what they are doing, while autists know something, does DD (but they too are retarded). Most WSB'ers can't read. They can't even think, but emojis are helpful. Newcomers are degenerates.

FD F**got Delight. Retarded investment strategy that has a one in a millionth chance of success, which means moon or bust, probably to be posted with a Gain flare pretty soon, because, there is a chance.

Diamond Hands. You never sell. You hold. HODL. What's an exit strategy?

Paper Hands. Sellers. Selling in the red, or selling at small gains. WSB'ers are going to the moon, pluto and beyond.

$ROPE. Your final investment. If your account blows up you buy rope.

Guh. Losing, and losing fast. $1,000,000 to $0 while staring at sceen.

Tendies. Never say Money. It's tendies.

Rocket emoji. Because you expect every WSB investment going to the moon. Actually, moon is just the first destination. Mars second, then pluto, then beyond. You reach moon when investment went up 0.01% or 69420%.

Drilling means you lost on a stock, small loss or complete loss. Loss is loss. But stonks always go up, no worries.

Bagholder. Buy high, selling low, or better, never sell. Because you're a bagholder.

Binary Events. Moon or bust bets, typically earnings reports, reports of clinical trial outcomes, and events where price movement depends on something binary.

Basic terms, acronyms: FOMO (fear of missing out). DD (Due Diligence). BTFD (Buy the Fucking Dip). SEC (Securities exchange commission). Can't Go Tits Up. BRRRRRRRRRR. DFV. Yes or No. Moonday.

Flairs of WSB:

  • DD. WSB'ers doing their homework. Due diligence. Investment opportunity research. Actually not investments, just risky bets.
  • Loss. WSB users posting loss porn.
  • Gain. Users posting their gains from investments.
  • Meme. The memes are prety much the heart of WSB.
  • YOLO. You Only Live Once. That's why WSB'ers invest ~100% of your account into one risky bet. Users YOLO their investments in gambling bets.
  • Discussion. WSB'ers discussing.
  • Other WSB flairs: Chart, Daily Discussion; Earnings Thread; News; Mods
